SilverStone TS433-TB: 4-Bay NAS with Thunderbolt 2 Connectors

SilverStone has replenished its inventory with a 4-bay NAS, entitled SST-TS433-TB. The new-comer is housed in a black aluminum case with an integrated zinc handle (124x166x248 mm dimensions). The storage allows to install high-capacity 3.5-/2.5-inch drives; each bay supports hot swapping functions and features a dedicated lock with LED activity indicator.



The heart of SilverStone SST-TS433-TB is Marvell 88SE9030 controller that is responsible for JBOD and RAID 0 operational modes. In the first case the drives function independently, whereas in RAID 0 mode they operate as a unified whole, evenly distributing information across the disc space.


The connection of NAS to the PC or other computing device is realized via a pair of Thunderbolt 2 ports which are characterized by the maximal bandwidth of 20 Gb/sec. These ports are known to support Daisy Chain function. Cooling of all internal components is entrusted to a single 90-mm fan.


The SST-TS433-TB is ready to …

Evga Debuts with a First-Rate ACX CPU Cooler

Evga, a company primarily known for high-end graphics solutions, decided to expand its production line by entering cooling market. Herein, it elaborated a first-rate CPU cooler, entitled ACX (codename: 100-FS-C201-KR). The new-comer features 164x134.5x91.5 mm dimensions and weighs 1065 g. Luckily, it can be already found in free sale for a price of $50.



The ACX is a tower-like air cooler that is able to efficiently remove heat from all processors that are compatible with the following sockets: Intel LGA 2011/1156/1155/1366/1150/775 and AMD FM1/FM2/AM3/AM3+/AM2/AM2+.


Evga ACX consists of an aluminum heatsink, five copper heatpipes that support Direct Touch technology, and one PWM fan of 120 mm dimensional type. The heatsink is composed of multiple thin plates, which differentiate themselves by an unusual framework. Such framework enables the emergence of two airflows around the heatpipes. According to Evga, this promotes for a better heat removal process.

ASRock Introduces Affordable H110M-DS/Hyper Mainboard

ASRock enters the market with another budget-oriented micro-ATX mainboard – the H110M-DS/Hyper (the recommended price makes up $60). The greenhorn is designed on Intel H110 chipset as well as ASRock Hyper BCLK Engine. The latter realizes the overclocking of Intel Skylake CPUs (for Socket LGA1151) by means of BCLK alteration; therewith, all other key nodes operate off-the-shelf.



ASRock H100M-DS/Hyper employs 4+1-phase power subsystem. The PCB accommodates 2x DIMM slots for DDR4-2133 MHz RAM with the maximal volume of 32 GB. Storage subsystem is represented by four SATA III ports, whereas expansion facilities include one PCIe 3.0 x16 and one PCIe 2.0 x1 ports.


Audio subsystem is governed by Realtek ALC887 controller and three 3.5-mm sockets. In its turn, network facilities are backed by Realtek RTL8111GR controller. Connectivity options embrace one RJ-45 port, one DVI video port, two PS/2 ports, and four USB ports for peripherals (both v 2.0 and v 3.0).
