The First Take on Versa N23 Chassis from Thermaltake

Thermaltake PC cases have never been a frustration. The Versa N23 is not an exception. It is a combination of functionality balanced with modern styling and a bit of company’s passion. The middle-tower chassis draws attention by the front panel with light-blue insertions against black panel. The other attraction is the right-side panel with an integrated acrylic window.

Thermaltake Versa N23 is intended to accommodate mini-ITX, micro-ATX and ATX motherboards with the maximum of 7 expansion slots. The availability of ODD bays enables the installation of two 5.25-inch drives. The layout also welcomes five 3.5-/2.5-inch drives which might be mounted without any tools.

Internal space is enough for 160-mm high CPU coolers, PS/2 ATX power supply units and 250-mm long graphics cards. If retrieving unnecessary drive bays from the bottom section, there is a chance to install 360-mm long videocards.

To continue, air cooling configuration offers 5 seats for 120 mm fans (2x …

LG to Release a Stylish PC Monitor 23ET63V

LG Electronics, a South Korean tycoon in consumer electronics market, is going to release a new stylish monitor, codenamed 23ET63V. This model features 23-inch display and Full HD resolution of 1920x1080 pixels. However, its basic flavor is an ultra-thin case (555x338x53 mm) and a touchscreen AH-IPS panel with the support of 10 multi-touch dabs. The latter also boasts a high gloss surface with 3H rigidity.

The other parameter that might be of interest to all potential users is absence of a traditional stand. Instead of it, there is a dedicated holdup that allows for tilt adjusting only (from 15 to 58 degrees). Such holdup positioning might be rather convenient to work with applications supporting a touchscreen data access. The display can be employed as a wall screen, thanks to the availability of 75x75 VESA bracket.

The rear panel of the display houses D-Sub, HDMI and USB 2.0 (for touchscreen input) ports for the connection of varied devices. Generally, 23ET63V consumes …

Thermaltake Enters the Market with NiC L31 and L32 CPU Coolers

Thermaltake Technology has just started shipping a pair of budgetary CPU coolers from NiC series. Entitled NiC L31 and NiC L32, these two models are compatible with all updated Intel and AMD platform motherboards. In keeping with the manufacturer, the new-comers will not obstruct the mounting of memory modules, due to their well-considered framework. Hence, they consist of small-sized heatsinks, three U-shape heatpipes (8 mm), and a base that is in direct contact with the CPU.

The first model, NiC L31 (codename: CL-P001-AL12RE-A), features 140x128x40 mm dimensions and weighs 530 g. The integrated 120 mm fan might operate in various speed modes – from 500 RPM to 1800 RPM – thanks to the support for PWM technology. It produces up to 70.99 CFM and dissipates up to 160 W power.

At the same time, at the minimal speed mode it generates only 18 dB noise, however at the ultimate rotations this index rises to 34.8 dB. According to the results of multiple tests, this fan is …
