SilverStone Launches 4-Port ECU01 PCI Expansion Card

Taking into account an ever increasing demand for USB 3.0 interfaces, SilverStone has elaborated a dedicated PCI expansion card, entitled ECU01. The card is designed in a low-profile form-factor with the support for PCI Express 2.0 x2 bus. It features a pair of 19-contact USB 3.0 sockets, each of which offers two USB 3.0 ports.



In keeping with the manufacturer, this comprehensive model is called to satisfy the need for high-speed interfaces, absent with old-fashioned systems. For sure, the amount of connectivity ports integrated within the motherboards (usually of entry-level/budgetary standard) is not always enough for enthusiasts and gamers. Hence, there can appear an acute need for additional expansion cards, like ECU01.


SilverStone ECU01 is based on Etron EJ198 controller, featuring an additional SATA interface that is responsible for an efficient power supply. Moreover, the model supports UASP protocol that accelerates data transfer speed. If the current OS does not …

The Switchover to Nvidia GeForce GTX 760

Nvidia has officially introduced one more graphics adapter from 700 series: GeForce GTX 760. As it was expected earlier, the card is based on GK104 graphics chip (on Kepler architecture) with 1152 CUDA cores, 32 ROPs and 96 TMUs. Its nominal clock frequency makes up 980 MHz, still this index might be overclocked at average to 1033 MHz.



Reference adapter is furnished with 2 GB of GDDR5 memory that employs 256-bit interface. Nonetheless, Nvidia does not exclude the possibility of introducing the models with 4 GB memory capacity. The nominal memory clock frequency equals to 1502 MHz, while its overclocked frequency reaches up 6008 MHz. This adapter is thought to support GPU Boost 2.0 technology that adjusts the overclocking frequency in reliance on GPU thermal condition. Thus, the more powerful cooling system is, the higher frequencies the users might expect.


To continue, power supply subsystem is represented by a couple of 6-contact power sockets. The maximal claimed TDP …

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 …
