Thermalright’s SI-100 Is An All-White (and RGB) CPU Cooler

Thermalright, a long standing player in the cooling market, has released a new cooler – the SI-100. This top-down cooler eschews the usual dark or metallic aesthetic for a bright while coating. If you’re building a system in a lighter colour scheme, this could be a good choice for you. With a 120 x 25mm aRGB fan (as always, RGB can be turned off), this is a valid cooling choice for today’s… toasty… processors.

AMD to Refrain From Using 12HVPWR Connector for RX 7000 Cards

With the impending clusterf*ck of the 12HVPWR connector situation on NVIDIA’s current generation cards, it’s good to hear that AMD will be refraining from using the aforementioned connector on the RX7000 series. In a tweet from industry veteran Kyle Bennett, we have confirmation that neither AMD, nor their AIB partners, will use the connector. After the @NVIDIAGeForce melting drama, I have verified through multiple sources that @Radeon Navi 31 ref cards will NOT use the 12VHPWR power adapter, and I could not verify any AIBs using 12VHPWR on N31 either. Picture in case you don't know what a smoked 12VHPWR …

This will be a 8 core / 16 thread chip based on the new Zen 4 architecture like it’s 7700X brother, but with lower clock speeds. This will likely be a 65w TDP chip (rejoice!!), but unfortunately, it’s likely to be OEM only. Group buy anyone? I wonder what the MoQ …
