MSI has recently added J1800I model to its mini-ITX motherboards inventory. The new-comer features 170x170 mm dimensions and is characterized by a low power consumption level. This makes it a desirable acquirement for builders of small-sized, power-efficient PC systems and multimedia devices. The board boasts Military Class 4 design that involves high-quality hardware components, including Dark Chokes and solid-state capacitors.

MSI J1800I is based on Intel Celeron J1800 CPU (22 nm) that runs at 2.41 GHz frequency but might be overclocked to 2.58 GHz. It consumes only 10 W power, being cooled down by a single aluminum heatsink. The PCB accommodates two SO-DIMM slots for two-channel DDR3 memory modules with the maximum frequency of 1333 MHz and the maximum capacity of 8 GB.

To continue, the hardware inventory embraces two SATA II 3 Gb/sec ports for the connection of drives. The availability of one PCI Express 2.0 x 1 slot enables the connection of a supplementary expansion …

EKWB Launches a New Water Block for GV-N680SO-2GD

Early August of 2012 was marked for Gigabyte by the release of its one more graphics card, codenamed GeForce GTX 680 SOC (GV-N680SO-2GD). This card can boast the availability of high factory frequencies and quite mighty cooling system. The nominal frequencies have been heightened to 1137MHz, 1202MHz, and 6200MHz for memory. Such outstanding characteristics required the integration of a high-quality and high-performance cooling system which consisted of five(!) fans. This made the card rather voluminous, cumbersome and noisy. That was when EKWB decided to design a dedicated water block to be employed with this remarkable graphics adapter.

Water block EK-FC 680 GTX SOC is housed on a copper base, good-quality acetal cover, and rubber shims as a compressor. The model is delivered with pre-installed fixing stands to facilitate the installation. It should be noted that this water block entirely covers the frontal part of the graphics card, along with the adjacent RAM modules and …

Hard drives still confidently dominate on the notebook market, according to analysts

SSDs are gradually penetrating into mobile computers, but can not yet can become a serious competitor of hard disk drives. Even recently observed slowdown in demand for notebooks with hard drives will not lead to a decrease of the part pf these models in favour of laptops, where SSD is the main storage, analysts believe.

According to the first quarter of this year, models from the HDD larger than 500GB, offered at $ 450-550, formed the largest segment of the market at a rate of 32% of total deliveries. Second place with 26% take laptops with HDD capacity over 320GB, which cost $ 350-450. They are followed by models with HDD larger than 640GB ($ 550-650 price range), than go HDD larger than 750GB ($ 650-750), they are followed — with 250 GB HDD (price less than $ 350), next — the HDD larger than 1 TB ($ 750-900). And only in last place, relevant to market by about 3%, are laptops with SSD volume 128GB or HDD with very large volume (price — $ 900 or more).
