Logitech G309 LIGHTSPEED mouse hits the market

1 week ago
A couple of days ago, Logitech showed off the new G309 LIGHTSPEED Wireless Gaming Mouse. Priced at 89.99EUR ($79.99), this wireless peripheral promises up to 600 hours of Bluetooth operation on a single charge (300 hours via LIGHTSPEED).
Logitech G, a brand of Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) and leading innovator of gaming technologies and gear, announced the Logitech G309 LIGHTSPEED Wireless Gaming Mouse, a premium designed mouse with dual-wireless connectivity, precision tracking and reliable performance in a newly designed form factor for all.

Gamers know their gear needs to deliver performance, comfort, and reliability to play at their best. In gaming mice, that means wireless performance with low latency, precision control, and seamless synchronization with movements, particularly given the tempo and agility required.

“For years, we have been committed to evolving our LIGHTSPEED technology and innovation so that everyone from esports pros to new gamers can enjoy wireless gameplay,” said Ujesh Desai, vice president and general manager of Logitech Gaming. “Our LIGHTSPEED technology, in conjunction with our HERO sensors, has advanced to the point where all gamers, from the world’s elite esports pros athletes to the first time gamer, know they can trust Logitech G mice to perform every time.

The G309 LIGHTSPEED gaming mouse is POWERPLAY compatible, which allows gamers to power the G309 without an AA battery inside it if they get the Logitech G PowerPlay Wireless Charging System, which is sold separately. This reduces weight by 18g (the weight of the alkaline battery).

Also featuring the exceedingly power-efficient HERO 25K sensor, the G309 offers over 300 hours of continuous gameplay at a 1 ms report rate in LIGHTSPEED on just one AA alkaline battery. Switch to Bluetooth mode; the battery life is over 600 hours on a single AA alkaline battery.

Even with so much technology inside, the Logitech G309 LIGHTSPEED is not heavy or bulky. It is durable yet compact and lightweight, weighing only 86 grams with an alkaline AA battery and 68 grams without the AA alkaline battery when paired with POWERPLAY.

The Logitech G309 LIGHTSPEED uses Logitech G’s exclusive LIGHTSPEED wireless technology for a high-performance gaming experience that is faster than most wired mice. By combining LIGHTSPEED wireless performance with Logitech G’s HERO 25K sensor, the G309 is capable of achieving next-generation performance while providing exceptional responsiveness and accuracy, 400 IPS, and sensitivity up to 25,600 DPI, with no acceleration or smoothing.

In addition, LIGHTSPEED wireless also allows players to connect two LIGHTSPEED devices to one receiver using the Device Pairing Tool in G HUB.

Noctua NH-D15 G2 is a big cooling beast

2 weeks ago
Earlier this week, Noctua showed off its new air cooling flagship product. Called the NH-D15 G2, this processor cooler uses NF-A14x25r G2 round-frame 140mm fans. The firm offers three variants, with platform-specific optimization. Pricing is $149.90 (149.90EUR).

NH-D15 G2
Noctua today released its long-awaited NH-D15 G2 next-gen flagship model CPU cooler and NF-A14x25r G2 round-frame 140mm fans. Continuing the legacy of the iconic NH-D15 and its NF-A15 fans, the new G2 products come packed with Noctua’s latest technologies and have been carefully refined in all respects to provide even better quiet cooling performance than their award-winning predecessors.

“Our G2 products have been years in the making and it feels amazing to finally be able to offer the first of them to our customers”, says Roland Mossig (Noctua CEO). “We faced various challenges in both design and manufacturing, but we’ve cut no corners and gone the extra mile to make sure that the G2’s will be worthy successors to some of our most iconic models. When you have them in your hands, I’m confident that you’ll be able to sense some of the dedication and perseverance that went into creating these fans and coolers.”

The NH-D15 G2 is the further improved second generation of Noctua’s iconic NH-D15. With its state-of-the-art, speed-offset NF-A14x25r G2 PWM fans, eight heatpipes and asymmetrical fin-stacks that have been carefully fine-tuned to work in tandem with the new fans, it achieves even better quiet cooling performance than its award-winning predecessor. As such, the G2 version is a true flagship model that continues the legacy of the original NH-D15 by pushing the boundaries of air cooling and rivalling the efficiency of many all-in-one (AIO) water cooling solutions.

In addition to its further improved performance, the NH-D15 G2 also offers enhanced compatibility thanks to an offset construction that allows it to clear the top PCIe x16 slot on most current motherboards. Last but not least, the G2 version has been upgraded to the Torx®-based SecuFirm2+™ multi-socket mounting system with included NM-SD1 screwdriver as well as to Noctua’s superior NT-H2 thermal compound. In short, the NH-D15 G2 has been further refined in virtually all respects from the heatsink and the fans all the way down to the mounting, thermal paste and accessory package. Topped off with Noctua’s trusted 6-year manufacturer’s warranty, it’s the new number one choice for customers who demand the best of the best in air cooling.

Taking platform-specific optimisation to a new level, the NH-D15 G2 is available in a regular, standard version and two specialised variants: The regular NH-D15 G2 uses the same medium base convexity as most other Noctua heatsinks, which makes it a perfect all-rounder that provides optimal results on AM5 with the included offset mounting and on LGA1700 CPUs when utilising the included NM-ISW1 shim washers (or optional, so-called contact frames ) to reduce CPU deformation from ILM pressure. The HBC (High Base Convexity) variant is specifically optimised for LGA1700 processors that are used with full ILM pressure or have become permanently deformed in long-term use, providing excellent contact quality despite the CPU’s concave shape. The LBC (Low Base Convexity) variant, by contrast, is specifically optimised for relatively flat CPUs. As such, it offers excellent contact quality on AMD AM5 even without the offset mounting as well as on other comparably flat CPUs (e.g. AM4, LGA2066, LGA2011(-3), lapped or custom flat heatspreaders, etc.).

For customers who would like to upgrade existing heatsinks such as the first-generation NH-D15, NH-D15S or NH-U14S series coolers, the new round-frame NF-A14x25r G2 fans will also be available separately, both in a regular single fan package (NF-A14x25r G2 PWM) and a dedicated dual fan package for push-pull configurations (NF-A14x25r G2 PWM Sx2-PP). Like the fans that come pre-installed on the NH-D15 G2, the ones included in the Sx2-PP set are fine-tuned with a 50rpm speed offset to prevent acoustic interaction phenomena such as periodic humming or intermittent vibrations.

The square frame version of the NF-A14x25 G2 fan for water cooling radiators and case cooling applications is currently scheduled for September.

Suggested retail prices:
  • NH-D15 G2: EUR 149.90 / USD 149.90
  • NH-D15 G2 LBC: EUR 149.90 / USD 149.90
  • NH-D15 G2 HBC: EUR 149.90 / USD 149.90
  • NF-A14x25r G2 PWM: EUR 39.90 / USD 39.90
  • NF-A14x25r G2 PWM Sx2-PP: EUR 79.80 / USD 79.80

Noctua goes Torx with its new NM-M1 mounting kits

7 months ago
Noctua reveals the NM-M1, a new SecuFirm2+ mounting kit available for existing Noctua coolers with a 78mm or 83mm mounting pitch. The firm explains the Torx screws are easier to operate in space-restricted environments and result in less wear on the screw heads. Most Noctua coolers launched since 2005 support the new mounting kit, notable exceptions being the NH-L9a and NH-L9i series, as well as all server and workstation heatsinks with larger bases.

Noctua today introduced its new NM-M1 enthusiast-grade multi-socket mounting kits. Available for Noctua coolers with 83 and 78mm mounting pitch, the NM-M1-MP83 and NM-M1-MP78 represent an ideal upgrade for users who want to migrate their Noctua CPU coolers to the new, Torx® based SecuFirm2+™ standard or to the latest sockets that their cooler did not yet support at the time of purchase. On AMD AM5, the offset mounting option can significantly improve performance with typical reductions in CPU temperatures of 1-3°C.

“The mounting system might seem like a sideshow when looking at a CPU cooler as a whole, yet in fact, it’s one of the key factors not only for the customer’s overall user experience but also for product safety and performance – poor contact pressure or contact quality can easily ruin your results even if the heatsink as such is working great”, explains Roland Mossig (Noctua CEO). “At Noctua, we have always taken pride in refining our mounting systems unremittingly, and the NM-M1 kits are a testament to this strive: integrating the latest SecuFirm2+™ standard as well as our offset mounting option for improved performance on AMD AM5, they keep raising the bar.”

The NM-M1 sets are Noctua’s most comprehensive multi-socket mounting-kits today: Supporting AMD AM5 and AM4 as well as Intel LGA1851, LGA1700, LGA1200, LGA1151, LGA1150, LGA1155 and LGA1156, they are the ultimate kits for a wide range of upgrading or switching scenarios.

The new SecuFirm2+™ standard uses Torx® T20 instead of Phillips head screws. The reduced cam-out of the Torx® drive makes it easier to operate, especially in space restricted environments such as pre-assembled PC systems. At the same time, there is less wear on the screw heads, which makes the plus version even more durable. With the included magnetic tip NM-SD1 Torx® T20 screwdriver, the NM-M1 kits are perfect for power users who frequently change their setups and demand the new gold standard in convenience and durability under heavy use.

The NM-M1 kits also include Noctua’s offset mounting bars for AM5 that make it possible to install the cooler shifted towards the south side of the socket by 7mm, thereby achieving better contact pressure right above the CCD(s). This improved contact exactly at the processor’s hotspot can significantly reduce CPU temperatures with typical improvements in the range of 1-3°C.

The sets are available in versions for heatsinks with 83mm mounting pitch (NM-M1-MP83) and 78mm mounting pitch (NM-M1-MP78), which makes it possible to upgrade most Noctua heatsinks since 2005 except for the NH-L9a and NH-L9i series as well as server and workstation models with larger bases. Both the NM-M1-MP83 and the NM-M1-MP78 are offered in regular versions with nickel-plated parts and variants. For the latter, all screws, fastening brackets and mounting bars are treated with a premium-grade, highly wear-resistant black coating. Perfect for creating all-black builds with Noctua’s line coolers!

The manufacturer’s suggested retail prices are as follows:
NM-M1-MP83: EUR 21.90 / USD 21.90
NM-M1-MP78: EUR 21.90 / USD 21.90
NM-M1-MP83 EUR 24.90 / USD 24.90
NM-M1-MP78 EUR 24.90 / USD 24.90

Noctua NH-D9L and NH-L9x65 go

8 months ago
Ever wanted a black version of Noctua's NH-D9L or NH-L9x65? Now is your chance as the company delivers versions of these two heatsinks:

NH-D9L and NH-L9x65
Noctua today expanded its line with all-black versions of the award-winning NH-D9L and NH-L9x65 CPU coolers: Staying true to the successful formula of the original models, the new versions with their black fans and black coated heatsinks combine the same signature quiet cooling performance with a sleek stealth look.

“Many users who build Small Form Factor systems value build-aesthetics just as much as performance and quietness of operation”, says Roland Mossig (Noctua CEO). “Our NH-D9L and NH-L9x65 are highly popular among Small Form Factor builders, so we’re excited to introduce them in all-black chromax versions!”

The new NH-D9L and NH-L9x65 are identical to the award-winning regular models except for the colour: Featuring black coated heatsinks, black fans with black anti-vibration-pads, black fan clips and black mounting parts, they are literally black from head to toe. Thanks to thoroughgoing optimisations of the coating material and process, the models provide the same, renowned quiet cooling performance as their regular, non-coated counterparts.

The NH-D9L has been designed to provide excellent efficiency at a height of only 110mm. Its comparably low profile (15mm lower than classic 9cm tower coolers such as the NH-U9S) doesn’t only guarantee full 3U compliance but also makes the NH-D9L ideal for compact mini-ITX and Small Form Factor cases that have airflow paths parallel to the motherboard. Thanks to its 95x95mm footprint, the NH-D9L always clears the RAM and PCIe slots, even on ITX motherboards.

The NH-L9x65 covers a middle ground between the larger NH-L12 series and the ultra-compact NH-L9i and NH-L9a series. With 65 instead of 37mm height and four instead of two heatpipes, the NH-L9x65 is more powerful than its smaller siblings yet retains the NH-L9i’s 95x95mm footprint, which, like with the D9L, not only guarantees 100% RAM and PCIe compatibility on current motherboards but also makes the cooler more convenient to work with as it doesn’t overhang near-socket connectors.

Thanks to their highly optimised NF-A9 and NF-A9x14 premium fans that support fully automatic speed control via PWM, both coolers run remarkably quiet. Topped off with the professional SecuFirm2™ multi-socket mounting system for Intel and AMD (including the new offset mounting bars for better performance on AM5), Noctua’s renowned NT-H1 thermal compound and a 6 year manufacturer’s warranty, they fuse everything users have come to expect from Noctua’s larger coolers into compact premium packages for space restricted systems.

Suggested retail prices: NH-D9L EUR 74.90 / USD 74.90
NH-L9x65 EUR 69.90 / USD 69.90

With pre-applied CORSAIR XTM70, CORSAIR’s highest performing premium thermal paste, and tool-free mounting brackets, the iCUE LINK LCD Series installs in just minutes to the most popular motherboard sockets including Intel® LGA 1700, 1200, 115X, and AMD® Socket AM5 and AM4.

The iCUE LINK ecosystem’s patent-pending single-cable technology demonstrates that building a PC can be unbelievably fast and simple. Builders can connect QX RGB fans – either those included with the cooler or additional fans for system cooling – in a direct sequence using the universal iCUE LINK connector, all plugged into a single port on the iCUE LINK System Hub. The result is a cleaner system with fewer cables (and cable management) than ever before possible.

The ultra-bright 480x480 LCD screen on the pump cap defines every iCUE LINK LCD Series cooler, just as it empowers its user to express their personality in a multitude of ways, from esports team logos to animated GIFs of their favorite memes in 24-bit true color depth. And with the unique design of all iCUE LINK coolers, the cables are hidden from view for the best looking build.

The much-awaited standalone iCUE LINK AIO LCD Screen Module also launches today, enabling early adopters of iCUE LINK to easily upgrade any existing CORSAIR iCUE LINK CPU cooler with a vibrant LCD display. All iCUE LINK coolers launched in 2023 are compatible, including the iCUE LINK H170i RGB, iCUE LINK H150i RGB, iCUE LINK H115i RGB and iCUE LINK H100i RGB. The screen installs in seconds directly onto the pump cap with no tools necessary – just snap and latch and you’re ready to customize your screen in iCUE software. Previous CORSAIR coolers, including PRO, ELITE and ELITE CAPELLIX models are not compatible with the iCUE LINK AIO LCD Screen Module.

Merging two of CORSAIR’s most popular AIO features – a brilliant LCD display and the revolutionary power and ease of iCUE LINK – these coolers represent brilliance and simplicity at their best.
