ASRock Fatal1ty Z170 Professional Gaming i7: Ambitious Mainboard for Ambitious Gamers

Gamers all over the world have got another cause for rejoicing: the debut of Fatal1ty Z170 Professional Gaming i7 motherboard. According to ASRock, the model is the most efficient mainboard in the company’s lineup. Designed in ATX form-factor, it’s based on Intel Z170 chipset that is ready to welcome Intel Skylake CPUs with LGA1151 socket (Core i3/i5/i7, Pentium, Celeron).

ASRock Fatal1ty Z170 Professional Gaming i7 captures the eyes by a true gaming black-and-red color gamut and a selected hardware base. The 12-phase VRM system provides power to the most demanding processors. Besides, all the components are cooled down by means of a passive cooler.

The PCB offers 4 DIMM slots which are targeting DDR4 memory modules with 3866+ MHz clock frequency. The maximal capacity of the integrated memory might not exceed 64 GB. To create storage subsystem the user might employ 4x SATA III ports, 3x SATA Express (compatible with SATA III), and 3x Ultra M.2 slots with 32 Gb/sec …

SilverStone Debuts with SST-ST30SF Power Supply

SilverStone Technology has recently introduced its newest SFX power supply unit. Codenamed SST-ST30SF, it features 125x100x63.5 mm dimensions and weighs 800 g only. The unit is estimated for 300 W power and is capable to demonstrate more than 81% efficiency in 230 V networks. High efficiency level allowed the model to gain 80Plus Bronze certificate.

The most uncommon feature ascribed to SST-ST30SF is that it can operate in passive mode if thermal conditions allow. The unit is equipped with a fan of 80 mm dimensional type; it starts rotating only when the surrounding temperature reaches 55 degrees. This promotes for a considerable power reduction and practically silent work when the fan gets disabled. An average noise level on active operation makes up 18 dB.

SilverStone furnishes the new entry with a single +12V rail, estimated for 22 A current. In its turn, +3.3V rail is estimated for 21 A current, while +5V rail – for 20 A current. It should be noted that this unit …

Deepcool to Release an Updated Lucifer K2 Efficient CPU Cooler

Deepcool has introduced a ‘companion’ to its well-known cooler entitled Lucifer V2. The all-new Lucifer K2 features 163x146.5x131 mm dimensions and weighs 1047 g. The new-comer supports AMD and Intel platforms, including LGA2011-v3, LGA2011, LGA1366, LGA115x, LGA775 (Intel) & Socket FM2, FM2+, FM1, AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+ (AMD) as well as various CPUs with TDP level of not more than 130 W.

Deepcool Lucifer K2 boasts a purely-polished copper base, six copper heatpipes and an aluminum heatsink (140x110x163 mm). The latter ensures a large heat dissipation area. Despite having stately proportions, the cooler does not block off the access towards DIMM slots.

The key differentiation between V2 and K2 models lies in the choice of a fan. The previous solution featured a 140-mm item, while the newer one – a 120-mm fan, based on a fluid-dynamic bearing. The fan supports PWM technology that provides for a wide rotational range — from 600 RPM to 1800 RPM, — generating up to …
