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 …

Review of video card ASUS ENGTX560 Ti DC/2DI/1GD5

ASUS ENGTX560 Ti DC/2DI/1GD5 model does not belong to the category of the best among the GeForce GTX 560 Ti, but the product is quite unusual, and deserves some attention. It comes in a big box. Delivery includes: adapter DVI / D-Sub; adapter mini-HDMI/HDMI; two power supply with two 4-pin molex to PCI-E 6-pin; CD with software; instruction. Video card is made in dark colours: PCB and enclosure of cooling system in black. Externally it is very similar to many of other ASUS video cards.



The cooling system is the radiator using three pipes instead of two. Heat pipes have direct contact with the surface of the GPU. They fit tightly in the grooves of the aluminum base. Blowing fan is placed between two raised sections of the radiator. And for a good blow of extreme areas it requires powerful air flow, which means higher fan speed. There is Everflow T129215SU fan with diameter of 92 mm (actual diameter of the blades a little less). The PCB is different from the standard and made in …

SilverStone Debuts with SST-ST30SF Power Supply

SilverStone Technology has recently introduced its newest SFX power supply unit. Codenamed SST-ST30SF, it features 125x100x63.5 mm dimensions and weighs 800 g only. The unit is estimated for 300 W power and is capable to demonstrate more than 81% efficiency in 230 V networks. High efficiency level allowed the model to gain 80Plus Bronze certificate.



The most uncommon feature ascribed to SST-ST30SF is that it can operate in passive mode if thermal conditions allow. The unit is equipped with a fan of 80 mm dimensional type; it starts rotating only when the surrounding temperature reaches 55 degrees. This promotes for a considerable power reduction and practically silent work when the fan gets disabled. An average noise level on active operation makes up 18 dB.


SilverStone furnishes the new entry with a single +12V rail, estimated for 22 A current. In its turn, +3.3V rail is estimated for 21 A current, while +5V rail – for 20 A current. It should be noted that this unit …
