ECS NM70-I Motherboard: Pioneer in Its Class

ECS decided to tackle the problem of sameness, developing a new motherboard on the basis of Intel NM70 Express chips. The implementation exactly of these chips makes the board a pioneer in its product class. ECS NM70-I is designed in mini-ITX form factor and houses Intel Celeron 847/807 CPU. The latter consumes only 17W of power to add the board power-efficient properties. Such approach to layout secures a harmonious balance between performance parameters and price ranges, and is an ideal match for compact PC systems.



Irrespective of the initial motherboard's compact dimensions, the manufacturer stipulated expansion opportunities if the user finds such a need in future employment. The availability of 1x PCI Express slot x16, SATA 3Gb/sec and 6Gb/sec sockets promote for the unimpeded upgrade of video system and data storage devices. ECS NM70-I facilities allow the customer to play back high-contrast HD and Blue-Ray multimedia content. Moreover, ECS equips its board with two …

Thermalright Launches New Low-Profile CPU Cooler AXP-200

Thermalright, a Taiwanese developer of advanced cooling solutions, enters into the market with a new low-profile CPU cooler – the successor of the last year’s model AXP-100. Codenamed AXP-200, the product features 150x140x60 mm dimensions and is intended to be incorporated into HTPC systems, as well as in compact PC chassis with the support of mini-ITX motherboards. This cooler is compatible with the majority of up-dated platforms, including Intel LGA 1150/1155/2011/1156/1366/775 and AMD Socket AM3/AM3+/AM2/AM2+/FM2/FM1.



The first thing that should be noted about AXP-200 is that it’s a more powerful version of the predecessor, ready to dissipate heat even without the fan from all processors with TDP level of up to 35 W. The other peculiar thing is that the model comes at an attractive price of approximately €50. And finally, framework is one more feature that differentiates AXP-200 from rival products.


Thereby, the cooler from Thermalright has got C-shape framework …

Review of the Fractal Design Define Mini C Case

During its existence the Fractal Design Company has already created quite a large number of externally similar cases. Unprepared in technical matters, the buyer will clearly find it difficult to understand which one will suit him. After all, the internal structure differs quite much, and it is reflected just by a pair of letters in each model name.


Today’s review is dedicated to the Define Mini C case. The basic concept of its design is minimalism. It got rid of the extra 5.25" compartments, bulky racks of 3.5" hard drives (as, in fact, few people use more than two such drives). The manufacturer tried to reduce external dimensions as much as possible without compromising compatibility with standard components. And, following modern concepts, they covered the power supply with a casing, thus dividing the internal space into two parts.
