Product Overview If you’re serious about high-performance computing, you already know that you’ve got to keep your PC’s CPU cool. You need something that not only outperforms your CPU’s stock heatsink, but does it quietly.

The Corsair Cooling A70 High-Performance CPU Cooler uses tried-andtrue thermal engineering technology to deliver superior air cooling performance: four 8mm copper heatpipes directly contact your CPU. The contact surface is polished to increase heat transfer efficiency. Two 120mm fans with speed control, mounted on rubberized studs, spin quietly in a push-pull configuration for optimum airflow.

The A70 is compatible with all current CPU socket designs, including Intel LGA775, LGA1156 and LGA1366, plus AMD Socket AM2 and Socket AM3.
Features • Four 8mm direct-contact copper heatpipes, for efficient heat conduction away from your CPU
• Two dual-speed 120mm fans in a push-pull configuration, with multiple speed options that let you optimize the maximum cooling and minimum noise
• Rubber mounts reduce noise and vibration
• Includes mounting hardware compatible with all modern CPU socket designs

Intel Green Computing
Date Issued: 28th Jul 2010

Green is one of the biggest buzz words these days, and even computer manufacturers are getting involved in trying to be kinder to the environment. While the first thing that may spring to mind when you think of 'green computing' is simply using less electricity, there's a lot more to it than that.

Date Issued: 14th Sep 2009

Intel launched the consumer-oriented Core i7 900-series processors back in November 2008, and the chip giant has known that it's been on to a winner with Nehalem, the codename for the underlying architecture. This is the reason we've seen little innovation on Core i7, and pricing has remained relatively steady since launch.

Date Issued: 1st Jul 2009

Intel has plans for a new brand structure that it claims will be less confusing for customers. In this TekSpek we'll take a look at Inte's proposals and speculate on its future line-up of processors.

Intel Branding Part I
Intel Branding Part I
Date Issued: 1st Jul 2009

Intel’s been on a mission of late. That mission revolves around grouping and standardising key technologies under various banners that are designed to ensure hardware compatibility and consumer ease of use. We’ll take a closer look at three such technologies that fall under the headings of Centrino, Viiv, and vPro, respectively.

Date Issued: 20th Oct 2008

Over the course of the last year or so we’ve seen GHz become less of a focus when it comes to processors. Instead, we’re seeing a shift towards processors that do more work per clock, have larger caches, are more power efficient, and of course we’ve seen dual-core processors hit the market. So what is dual-core all about, and how does it weigh up compared to single-core?

CPU Codes
Date Issued: 20th Oct 2008

It’s been a long time since MHz were the only part of a CPU’s specification that concerned people. Manufacturers take different approaches to CPU design, even when using the same architecture. That means for example, at the same clock speed, an Intel and AMD processor will deliver different performance.

Date Issued: 20th Oct 2008

The modern PC is potentially a mass of heat output and heat production hot spots. With CPUs rated at more than 100W of heat output, single graphics boards carrying similar ratings (and people want to run two!), multiple hard drives the norm, lots of memory and mainboards covered in heatpipes to combat toasty core logic and PWM circuits, a PC appreciably warming up a room when it’s working hard is no joke.
