Well, this is it ladies and gentlemen. We’ve been waiting anxiously for over a year now for AMD’s latest Processor, after the disappointment of Bulldozer the PC building scene became primarily an Intel favored one for most serious workloads. While AMD’s APUs have found a pleasant place in the budget market and the FX lineup became a decent option for gamers looking for good bang for the buck, AMD remained way behind Intel in technology for what seams like forever. That changes today. Today we will be looking at Ryzen, will it live up to the hype? Will it fall flat on it’s face?AMD Ryzen Specs CPU Ryzen 1700 Ryzen 1700X Ryzen [...]
Following up on the leaked image of trays of AMD Ryzen CPUs as well as an up close shot of the CPU, a new image of a chart with SKUs and specifications of the stock Ryzen Wraith Cooler have also popped up around the web.
Currently, there seem to be two coolers available. The Wraith Max cooler is designed for up to 140W TDP CPUs while the Wrath Spire is designed for 95W TDP CPUs. The Wraith Max looks to have at least two heat pipes that extend out from the base and into the heatsink. The Wraith Spire simply has a fan seated on top of a circular cooler. Despite being rated for up to 140W and 95W TDP, both coolers are quite compact. Horizontal footprint is rated at 105mm [...]

Spire Corp – We are proud to introduce our new fan series with Nano-ceramic precision bearing. Spire fans with Nano-bearing offer a more silent, reliable and durable solution for the most demanding situations.
Traditional fans with oil seal bearings have serious wear with a relatively short service life as the bearings can easily overheat which results the impeller jamming and the pcb melting. Fans with nano-ceramic bearings are made from namo-zirconia powder as main material and a collocating special nano-particles lubricant to guarantee an exponentially longer life. The average service life is [...]
Back in 1998, Spire started out as an OEM PC hardware manufacturer, but recently, they’ve been starting to work their way into the enthusiast grade computer accessories market. Their lineup currently includes power supplies, chassis, and of course, cooling solutions – most of which you probably never heard of before. That’s why today, we’re going to be looking into their TherMax Eclipse III, or TME III for short.
