Motherboard Gigabyte GA-F2A85X-UP4 Review

The second generation of AMD A-Series hybrid processors, announced earlier in October, are already integrated in a number of graphics solutions. The newly appeared products are compatible with Socket FM2 only and cannot be applied for Socket FM1 infrastructure. This implies that a number of motherboards lose their upgrade facilities and can't be updated with a new advanced solution. Still, the market is currently ready to present a few boards destined to operate with the updated AMD A-Series. Gigabyte is one of the pioneers in this respect, introducing its motherboard GA-F2A85X-UP4, developed specifically for Socket FM2.


Gigabyte GA-F2A85X-UP4 is designed in ATX form-factor with 305x244 mm PCB dimensions. AMD A85X chipset is a heart of the motherboard; it secures the compatibility with A-Series (second gen.) APU and Athlon CPUs in the implementation of Socket FM2. The overall TDP level claimed for the model is not more than 100W. The PCB allots four DIMM slots …

Midi-Tower Chassis CoolerMaster HAF XM Review

Chassis of full-tower form factor have always been considered an appropriate base for the integration of super computers. Such chassis usually have enough spacing for the installation of solid cooling systems, graphics cards, as well as several hard drives. However, full-tower means voluminous, and not everyone is ready to 'add' this chassis to the surrounding design. Thus, there appeared a perfect substitute for full-tower devices: midi-tower chassis. Despite the existing outlooks concerning midi-tower capacity, the market is replenishing with products that are called to comply with contemporary design and performance requirements. CoolerMaster HAF XM belongs to the range of midi-tower chassis which show unmatched efficiency and are ergonomic in design simultaneously.

Design and Layout

Chassis CoolerMaster HAF XM is differentiated by a singular charisma in design and comparatively compact dimensions. The chassis is designed in a restrained manner, but with an obvious …
