GIGABYTE FORCE H7 and H5 Gaming Headsets Now Available

Optimum audio performance delivered in the signature comfort design

Taipei, Taiwan, 5 February, 2016 GIGABYTE, the worlds leading premium hardware brand, today announced the availability of the FORCE H7 and FORCE H5, two high-end gaming headsets integrating superior comfort and acoustic performance to deliver rich, clear and premium sound that pushes immersive gaming experience to a new level.

FORCE H7 – True 5.1 Surround Sound

Featuring true 5.1 Surround Sound, the FORCE H7 boasts a total of 8 speaker drivers to bring out the finest audio quality available in todays popular game titles for creating a true-to-life gaming environment. The gold-plated dual subwoofer drivers are added to the mix to allow gamers to get blown away by the rumble of gunfire and explosions. The embedded USB sound card ensures the surround sound is pure and interference-free, while the audio equalizer enables gamers to customize audio settings based on individual preferences.

FORCE H5 – Premium SRS Surround Sound

The FORCE H5 incorporates dual 50mm neodymium drivers with the SRS surround sound engine to present a vivid 360 sound field, allowing gamers to accurately identify the direction each sound is coming from. The speakers are acoustically inclined for a much enhanced audio perception with rich detail. The onboard USB sound card requires no software and lets gamers get straight into action with the easy plug-and play connectivity.

Ultra-comfort Design

Both gaming headsets feature a fully adjustable, lightweight industrial design with metal headband and swiveling ear pads to accommodate all types of head shapes and sizes. The one-of-a-kind hexagonally-shaped ear cups completely enclose the ears as opposed to sitting on them which provide superior comfort, while allowing gamers to concentrate uninterruptedly from any outside noises. The memory foam ear cushion wrapped by protein leather adds extended comfort needed for wearing long hours over prolonged gaming sessions.

Access to Non-stop Gaming

The FORCE H7 and H5 come with a retractable microphone for crystal clear in-game communication with the fellow players. The mic boom can be easily stored when not in use. The touch control panel makes adjustment of the volume and microphone muting quick and easy without interfering the ongoing gameplay. When on the go or joining a LAN event, the gaming headsets can be folded and stored in the supplied carrying pouch/case for maximum portability.

Scythe Ninja 5 (SCNJ-5000) Review Highlights


Maximum noise level

High performance coolers tend to be quite noisy. A cooler with a noise level of 30 — 35 dB can be considered quiet. Silent — 20 dB (an almost unattainable value in real conditions of active cooling).
Show all

14.5 dB

Average: 25.9 dB

5.7 dB


Minimum noise level

The minimum noise level of the cooler is achieved at minimum speed. The noise level of about 20 dB is practically the threshold of sensitivity. 30 — 35 dB — comparable to the noise of an average office.
Show all

4 dB

Average: 14.6 dB

3 dB


Fan height

Other things being equal, a fan with a higher height can generate more airflow. But the final result will also depend on the shape of the blades and other design features.

Average value: 24.2 mm

39 mm


Radiator material

Cooler radiators are aluminum, copper, aluminum with a copper base. Other options are rarely used. Aluminum ones are cheaper, but less efficient, and do not allow the use of liquid metal as a thermal interface. Copper — more expensive, more efficient, compatible with liquid metal. A compromise option is aluminum with a copper contact base.

aluminum


Bearing type

The plain bearing in the cooler is the most inexpensive, fairly quiet, but the least reliable option. Hydrodynamic — an improved version of the previous one. Bearing with magnetic centering — an improved version of the hydrodynamic (increased reliability, reduced noise). Other form factors are much less common.
Show all

hydrodynamic


Speed ​​controller

Some cooling fans and CPU coolers have physical speed controls. Form factors are different — from a simple mechanical regulator on the back of a PC case to a multifunctional device, displayed in a 5.25-inch bay on the front panel.

Connector type

The coolers are powered by the motherboard or other source via 3-pin, 4-pin PWM and 4-pin Molex connectors. PWM stands for PWM (Pulse Width Modulation), which allows you to adjust the rotation speed over a wide range.
Show all

4-pin PWM


Illumination color

Illumination of the cooler and LSS is a spectacular decorative element. Makes sense in an open PC case or a case with a transparent side wall. Can be single color or multicolor (RGB).

Maximum rotation speed

The indicator indirectly indicates the efficiency of the cooler/fan, but one should also take into account the design features of the blades, the material and design of the radiator, etc.

Uptime

Uptime is calculated by cooler manufacturers for ideal conditions, and in reality this figure is always less. It depends primarily on the type of bearing. It varies from one to several tens of thousands of hours.

Fan Diameter

At the same RPMs, a cooler with a larger diameter fan will be more efficient than a smaller fan, all other things being equal.

Number of fans

The cooling system can include several fans. The presence of more than one fan indirectly indicates the increased efficiency of the cooler.

Water cooling

Water (liquid) cooling is often used for high-performance PCs, in particular gaming ones.
Show all

No


Number of heat pipes

Heat pipes in coolers are an efficient way to dissipate heat. The more of them, the better. There are no universal values ​​here, it all depends on the specific system configuration.

Minimum airflow

Characteristics of coolers with speed control. Allows you to find out whether the cooler will cope with the tasks of cooling at minimum speed.

Average: 25. 5 CFM

1.46 CFM


Minimum rotation speed

The ability to reset the fan speed to a minimum allows you to minimize noise when there is no need for maximum cooling efficiency.

4-pin Molex adapter included

Thanks to the adapter, the cooler can be connected not to the motherboard, but directly to the power supply of the system unit, if there are not enough free slots on the motherboard.
