Three New PC Cases from Lian Li for mini-ITX Motherboards

Lian Li has recently introduced three new PC chassis compatible with the motherboards of mini-ITX standard. Codenamed PC-Q27, PC-Q28 and PC-Q30, these cases replenished the 'Q' series and are called to replace more out-dated predecessors. The first two models in the row replace the earlier launched PC-Q07 and PC-Q25, while PC-Q30 is only a prototype that substantially differs from from its companions.



All three models are distinguished by a quite new approach to the motherboard fixture. Hence, instead of traditional trays, Lian Li employs two rails that fix the board. What is more, the designer has implemented quite a different system of side panels mounting.


The first PC case, PC-Q27, features 200x321x240 mm dimensions and is estimated for the installation of a single 5.25-inch drive, two 3.5-inch bays that support the installation of drives of 2.5-inch form-factor. The integrated cooling system consists of a single frontal 120 mm fan.


The second model, PC-Q28, is …

The Advanced Cubieboard6 Singleboard PC Is Based on the 4-year Old Model, Though, It Has Refined Components

A new model, namely Cubieboard6, has joined the Cub ieboard singleboard PC family, which emerged 5 years ago. The novelty is of the same size (100 х 60 х 18 mm) as the previous model, the component layout is unchanged; however, parts themselves are updated.


Cubieboard6 is based on the SoC Actions S500, as well as the 28 nm technology. It offers four Cortex-A9 cores and the PowerVR SGX544 GPU. The 2 GB LPDDR3 RAM is supplemented with the 8 GB eMMC module. Cubieboard6 has a microSD slot and a 6 Gbps SATA port. The wireless Ampak AP6212 module supports Wi-Fi 802.11n and Bluetooth 4.0; there is also an HDMI 1.4b video output, two USB 2.0 ports and a Fast Ethernet networking port.


2 x 48pins headers make I2C, MIPI CSI, ADC, CVBS, RGB, LVDS, MIPI DSI, SPI, HSIC, GPIO and other buses available. The device is powered via USB 2.0 or 2-pins header for 3.7 V Li-Po battery.


The Cubieboard specialty costs $98.

The First Glance at MSI X99S Gaming 9 ACK & Z97 Gaming 9 ACK Mainboards

MSI could not resist the temptation to officially introduce a pair of new gaming mainboards: the X99S Gaming 9 ACK and the Z97 Gaming 9 ACK. The key distinction of new-comers from analogue models without ‘ACK’ attribute lies in the implementation of dedicated gaming network controllers: Qualcomm Atheros Killer 1525 and Killer E2205. The first one is supposed to support 802.11 ac standard that guarantees 867 Mb/sec throughput bandwidth; it also ensures less data deference. This provides for a faster network traffic processing and, as a result, — for a huge advantage in online gaming.



The E-ATX MSI X99S Gaming 9 ACK motherboard is based on Intel X99 chipset, estimated for Intel Core i7-5000 CPUs with Socket LGA2011-v3. The model features 8x DIMM slots for DDR4-333 MHz memory (4-channel operational mode) of up to 128 GB capacity. Storage subsystem offers eight SATA III ports, whereas expansion facilities are ensured by means of five PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots. The list of …
