CeBit Coverage Day Three
Mushkin had a range of RAM on display, each series showing its own awards, though I was unable to find an OCC award on there. Also on display were some power supplies, but those were the already known 550W and 650W versions. Together with the German forum Awardfabrik, Mushkin displayed a very nice, green themed computer, powered by a Mushkin power supply and some Mushkin Redline RAM. That’s not all from Mushkin though; did you know it was entering the video card market? I certainly didn’t!
Solid State Drives are getting bigger and bigger in capacity rapidly, so Supertalent showed some 128GB SSDs, both in 2.5” and 3.5” sizes. It also showed some ProjectX DDR3 1600 / 1800 modules, which are new additions to Supertalent’s overclocking line of RAM.
Speaking of storage, I finally got a picture of the G.Skill advertisements in the Kröpcke tram station!
These guys are usually known for their cases, of which they also had a couple on display. These two included small LCD screens in the front so that you can monitor your hardware.
What Aerocool is not yet known as well for, is its cooling solutions. It had a couple of different coolers on display, both for GPU and CPU cooling. The M12 Pro cooler goes with the recent trend of tower coolers, but integrating the heatpipes directly into the cooler’s base. This technique is used by Xigmatek on its HDT-S1283, which is a rather successful cooler. Next to the M12 Pro, we find the Silver Wind, which is also available as a copper version. For video cards, Aerocool developed the Double Power cooler, which connects the fan portion to the bit that actually resides on the chip via heatpipes.
