PSU Evga 500B: a Perfect ‘Price-Quality’ Combination

Evga, a merited designer of a large spectrum of PC components, is about to release a new power supply unit, entitled 500B (codename: 100-B1-0500-KR). As seen from the title, this model features 500W power and is oriented at saving users, rather than enthusiasts. The unit is already marked by 80Plus Bronze certificate, due to 80% efficiency level on ordinary loading. Upon the whole, 500B is thought to be a perfect ‘price-quality’ combination, ready to comply with all basic users’ requirements.



Evga 500B employs a single +12V rail that ensures a stable power supply to the connected components and guarantees compatibility with new equipment. The unit is estimated for 40A current at +12V rail. Stability of operation might be secured also by means of an onboard protection system; it saves the system from power disruptions, overloading, low input voltage, high voltage, and from short circuit.

One-Slot XFX RX 460 2 GB Core Edition OC and XFX RX 460 4 GB Core Edition OC Graphics Cards

Last week the HIS company was the first to introduce a one-slot AMD Radeon RX460 series graphics card, motivating other manufacturers to design parallel solutions. Thus, XFX announced the release of a pair of such video accelerators – XFX RX 460 2 GB Core Edition OC and XFX RX 460 4 GB Core Edition OC – which differ only in the VRAM capacity (2 and 4 GB respectively).



Both novelties are based on the AMD Polaris 11 graphics processor and support 896 streaming processors, 56 TMU as well as 16 ROP. The base GPU clock matches the benchmark of 1,090 MHz, and the dynamic frequency has increased from 1,200 to 1,220 MHz. The effective video RAM rate equals 7,000 MHz.


A compact cooler is designed to chill down internal components. Its construction contains a moderate-size heat sink and an axial flow fan. The front-end interface features the following ports: DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort.

A Solid Jonsbo U1 PLUS Gaming ITX PC Case Makes a Real Difference

Gaming Mini-ITX PC Cases are becoming more and more popular from day to day. At present, among them we can distinguish the latest U1 PLUS model from Jonsbo, which is notable for its inner space optimization.



This framework weighs only 2.77 kg, and its 170 × 220 × 320 mm dimensions allow to install graphics cards up to 195 mm long and CPU coolers up to 133 mm high. The SFX format power supply units can be utilized with this product. There’s also a potential for embedding two 2.5” drives and an M.2 storage device. In the lower part of the chassis one can find enough room to mount a 80 mm fan for additional cooling and a dust filter.


The sturdily constructed Jonsbo U1 PLUS is manufactured out of 4 mm aluminum-magnesium alloy; and its side panel is made out of the 5 mm tempered glass.


The novelty is designed in two colour variants – black and silver, so users can choose any to their liking. Shockproof legs advantageously contribute to the exterior.
