Meeting New GTX 970 DirectCU Mini OC Video Card from Asus

Tailored for mini-ITX motherboards, Asus has designed a new graphics card based on GeForce GTX 970 adapter. The GeForce GTX 970 DirectCU Mini OC features 170x122x40 mm dimensions only, targeting small-sized chassis for mini-ITX platforms. The heart of the card is Nvidia’s GM204-200-A1 GPU with 13 SMM blocks, 1664 CUDA cores, 104 TMUs, and 64 ROPs. It runs at the nominal 1088 MHz frequency but might be overclocked to 1228 MHz index.



Asus GeForce GTX 970 DirectCU Mini OC employs a shortcut PCB that accommodates a two-slot cooler with a vapor chamber, a backplate, and a high-efficiency CoolTech Fan. The latter is distinguished by a unique design that dramatically enhances airflow. The incorporated hardware base features Super Alloy Power design. It implies the inclusion of prime-quality chokes, capacitors, and power transistors. Their combination provides for some incredible efficiency and a prolonged lifespan.


The integrated GPU is accompanied with 4GB of GDDR5 memory; it …

SilverStone introduced a modular power supply Strider ST45SF-G form factor SFX

Power Supplies form factor SFX are usually positioned as solutions for office and HTPC systems, that is why its design is often monotonous. In this regard, a new block of SilverStone Strider ST45SF-G stands out from the competition with detachable cables in a nylon sheath and colored in black casing.



Despite its compact dimensions (125x100x63, 5 mm), power supply produces up to 450 watts of constant power at an efficiency of 88% to 92% in the networks of 230 V. It is noteworthy that the kit includes an adapter to install Strider ST45SF-G in the chassis type Mid-Tower (ATX).


Cooling of PSU is provided by 80-mm fan with support for automatic speed control. In addition, the unit has active PFC, single cable PCI-E Power on (6 +2) and two contacts at the 6-pin. Allowed not more than three per cent of deviation from the standard voltage of +12 V, +5 V and +3.3 V.


A detailed description of the new models is available on the manufacturer's website. SilverStone Strider ST45SF-G …

Fractal Design Showcases an Offbeat Define S Chassis

Fractal Design, a well-known Swedish PC hardware developer, comes out with an innovative PC chassis, entitled Define S. The new-comer offers an ideal balance of functionality with a perfect soundproofing. Its exterior is differentiated by a classic strictness and style combined with a totally black coverage. The case might accommodate as mini-ITX/mATX motherboards, so full ATX items. Moreover, potential customers are able to choose between a windowed version ($90) and an entirely blind version ($80) of the chassis.



Key peculiarity of Fractal Design Define S model is absence of traditional bays for ODD and HDD/SSD. Instead of them, there are dedicated vertical seats on the reverse side of the motherboard tray for three 3.5-inch drives and two additional 2.5-inch drives. Seats for the 5.25-inch ODD are absent at all.


The layout allows for the installation of 425-mm graphics cards (if frontal fans are excluded, the maximal admissible length of cards might be 450 mm), CPU …
