MSI Motherboard MS-9893 in Mini-ITX Form Factor

MSI, worldly-known producer of computer hardware and consumer electronics, does not allow its competitors to recover breath and rest on their laurels. Its new motherboard MS-9893 has been already presented to the public and is supposed to exceed the rival products in video performance and power consumption aspects. The new model is based on Intel Atom platform which is known for its power-saving characteristics and advanced performance. MS-9893 is able to work with the two models from Intel Atom line (considering the type of modification): Intel Atom N2800 and Intel Atom D2550.

MS-9893 is developed in mini-ITX form factor and is equipped with VGA, HDMI, and LVDS video outputs. The support of high-quality video in 1080P resolution standards is considered to be the major privilege of a new model from MSI. RAM memory is presented by a single 204-contact SO-DIMM slot which can accommodate DDR3 memory module of 4 GB in volume capacity and 1066 MHz frequency.

Mushkin Showcases New Reactor Solid-State Drives

Mushkin Enhanced is about to launch a new series of top-tier SSDs within the framework of Reactor series. The series, represented by three models of 256 GB, 512 GB and 1 TB capacity, is targeting up-to-date gaming and high-performance systems. The greenhorns are developed in 2.5-inch form-factor with 7 mm thickness only and SATA III 6 Gb/sec interface.

Mushkin Reactor drives take Silicon Motion SM2246EN controller in cooperation with MLC NAND flash-memory as the basis. Their utmost sequential data transfer speed equals to 560 Mb/sec and 460 Mb/sec on Read/Write operations respectively, while random data transfer speed achieves 74.000 IOPS and 76.000 IOPS correspondingly.

The triple is thought to operate 1.5 million hours without failures in rather tough conditions (in working environments with up to 70 degrees temperature). All models support TRIM instructions, DevSleep mode that prolongs standalone operation of a mobile device on battery power supply, and the newest …

Thermaltake Enters the Market with NiC L31 and L32 CPU Coolers

Thermaltake Technology has just started shipping a pair of budgetary CPU coolers from NiC series. Entitled NiC L31 and NiC L32, these two models are compatible with all updated Intel and AMD platform motherboards. In keeping with the manufacturer, the new-comers will not obstruct the mounting of memory modules, due to their well-considered framework. Hence, they consist of small-sized heatsinks, three U-shape heatpipes (8 mm), and a base that is in direct contact with the CPU.

The first model, NiC L31 (codename: CL-P001-AL12RE-A), features 140x128x40 mm dimensions and weighs 530 g. The integrated 120 mm fan might operate in various speed modes – from 500 RPM to 1800 RPM – thanks to the support for PWM technology. It produces up to 70.99 CFM and dissipates up to 160 W power.

At the same time, at the minimal speed mode it generates only 18 dB noise, however at the ultimate rotations this index rises to 34.8 dB. According to the results of multiple tests, this fan is …
