Such a variety will help gamers of different levels to select an optimal model so far as the price and facilities are concerned.



Indeed, each motherboard boasts a singular set of facilities, although there are some common to all 13 models specifications:

— support for Multi-GPU technologies, i.e. Nvidia SLI and AMD CrossFireX;

— availability of SATA Express connector with 10 Gb/sec bandwidth;

— integration of high-speed M.2 port with up to 10 Gb/sec bandwidth;

— availability of two external ports for a stable output voltage: Gigabyte USB DAC-UP;

Meet Self-Purified D.F.Vegas Fans from Enermax

Enermax has enlarged its lineup of fans with D.F.Vegas series. The series consists of two models: the D.F.Vegas & the D.F.Vegas Duo. The key differentiation between the two solutions lies in the current intensity as well as LED backlights. The first new-comer is equipped with 12 blue diodes, while the second model houses 12 red and 12 green diodes.



Enermax D.F.Vegas fans boast the implementation of self-purification technology – Dust Free Rotation (DFR). During the first ten seconds of operation the fan rotates contrary clockwise and then returns to standard rotational mode. That is how dust and litter is removed from the blades. If there is a need in manual cleansing, the blades can be easily detached.


Both fans are designed on Twister Bearing with MTBF index of 160 thousand hours. The frame accommodates a single 4-pin connector which supports PWM technology. Hence, it’s possible to limit the maximal rotation speed by 1100/1300/1500 RPM by means of a dedicated …
