Enermax Unveils Staray Lite and Staray Silence Chassis

Enermax Technology Corporation, an established manufacturer of varied PC hardware and peripherals, has unveiled a pair of new chassis, codenamed Staray Lite and Staray Silence. Both products are elaborated in mid-tower form-factor (472x185x421 mm dimensions) and are predestined for those users who suppose quality and reliability a must. These chassis feature very similar external design but their internal layout differs a bit.



Models Lite and Staray are ready to house four external drives of 5.25-inch standard, five internal drives of 3.5-inch standard, and seven expansion slots. They support ATX/micro-ATX motherboards and can accommodate up to four 120 mm fans. Additionally, there is a possibility to install a liquid-cooling system, due to the availability of dedicated holes for cables on the rear facet.


Staray Lite is delivered with only one pre-installed 120 mm fan, located on the frontal panel. It can be supplemented by three more fans on the rear and side facets. I/O …

Greeting New HIS R7 260 iCooler 1GB GDDR5 Graphics Card

The lineup of graphics cards designed by HIS has been replenished with a new Radeon R7 260 model. Entitled HIS R7 260 iCooler 1GB GDDR5, the new-comer employs a typical PCI Express 3.0 x16 interface and comes with etalon clock frequencies. The R7 260 GPU (GCN, 28 nm) with 768 CUDA cores runs at 1000 MHz. It is accompanied by 1 GB of GDDR5 memory (128-bit bus) that operates at 1500 MHz/ 6000 MHz typical/effective frequency.



This adapter receives power through one 6-contact connector. Connectivity with PC monitors is realized due to three video ports: DisplayPort, HDMI and DVI-I. GPU and memory modules are cooled down by the forces of iCooler. It is not differentiated by an offbeat design; it consists of an aluminum heatsink and one low-profile fan.


Still, it offers acoustic convenience while fulfilling standard tasks: the maximal noise level does not exceed the limit of 28 dB. A supplementary aluminum heatspreader can be found in power supply section.


The HIS R7 260 …

Which DDR3 SDRAM is better for Ivy Bridge

The overclocker memory is now in the category of products for perfectionists, still the common users are pleased with usual modules DDR3-1600 or DDR3-1333 SDRAM. The issue appears related to the release of processors Ivy Bridge series, which in some aspects are similar to its predecessors, still have some distinctive features.



Ivy Bridge processors are restricted on the maximum frequency supported by the DDR3 SDRAM. This indicates the theoretical chance of these processors work with high-speed memory DDR3-3200 SDRAM. Developers of overclocker memory package perceived the change in rules with certain enthusiasm: there are DDR3-2400 modules available in stores. The gap in frequencies of «elite» and «running» versions of the memory has grown twice in size. It won’t have a noteworthy blow on the work of commonly used tasks in systems.


The memory controller in the Ivy Bridge can work both in symmetric mode, with delay, frequency and volume modules in memory channels, and …
