CORSAIR Intros 30mm Thick RS MAX Series PC Fans

Published

on

CORSAIR has announced the launch of its first 30mm-thick PC cooling fans, the RS MAX Series. By combining extremely durable Liquid Crystal Polymer material with a larger fan blade bolstered by AirGuide technology, CORSAIR’s expert engineers have created its best-performing fan with zero compromises.

The RS MAX Series connects with a simple 4-pin PWM header, enabling precise adjustment over fan speeds without the need for a separate controller.

With a 20% increase in thickness over standard fans, the RS MAX Series can spin at a lower speed to generate the same airflow as its thinner counterparts – translating into lower overall fan noise.

For enthusiasts who push their systems to the limit, the high static pressure created by the RS MAX’s larger fan blade helps power airflow through obstructions and dense radiators, making it an ideal choice for high-performance liquid cooling setups.

CORSAIR Magnetic Dome bearings – an evolution of the acclaimed magnetic levitation bearing – significantly reduce friction for both enhanced longevity and quieter operation. For PC builders looking to boost performance without boosting noise, the RS MAX Series will help push your system to the max.

The CORSAIR RS MAX Series is available in 120mm and 140mm sizes from the CORSAIR webstore and the CORSAIR worldwide network of authorized retailers and distributors.

Published

on

Gigabyte has officially launched its long-awaited XTREME Prestige Limited Edition lineup, featuring a visually stunning and overclocked RTX 4080 SUPER graphics card and a feature-packed Z790 motherboard. Both components boast a luxurious titanium and gold design, complete with unique engraved serial numbers, hinting at the limited production run – estimated between 300 and 500 units.

The centrepiece, the Aorus GeForce RTX 4080 Super Xtreme Ice 16G, boasts a factory overclock of 150 MHz and improved performance over the stock model. Gigabyte claims it delivers 885 AI TOPs compared to the stock card’s 836. Cooling this beast are three massive “bionic shark” fans and a large vapour chamber. For those seeking ultimate customization, the fans feature addressable RGB rings, and the card itself sports an LCD monitor displaying customizable GIFs.

The Z790 Aorus Xtreme X Ice motherboard complements the graphics card perfectly. It boasts a unique crystalized titanium finish, a golden CPU socket, and a removable M.2 heatsink. Feature-wise, it supports DDR5 memory with speeds exceeding XMP-8266 and offers AI-powered CPU overclocking, promising speeds exceeding 6.3 GHz on an i9-14900KS. An included external DAC further boosts audio quality.

While pricing remains a mystery (promised on the Gigabyte website but currently unavailable), expect a hefty price tag, likely exceeding $1,299 for the graphics card alone. Both products will be sold separately, but a future bundle with additional Xtreme Ice components is a possibility.

Gigabyte promises a luxurious “unboxing experience” for each component, complete with premium packaging, high-end tools, and even anti-static gloves. We’ll update this story with confirmed pricing when available.
