ASRock Fatal1ty Z170 Professional Gaming i7: Ambitious Mainboard for Ambitious Gamers

Gamers all over the world have got another cause for rejoicing: the debut of Fatal1ty Z170 Professional Gaming i7 motherboard. According to ASRock, the model is the most efficient mainboard in the company’s lineup. Designed in ATX form-factor, it’s based on Intel Z170 chipset that is ready to welcome Intel Skylake CPUs with LGA1151 socket (Core i3/i5/i7, Pentium, Celeron).

ASRock Fatal1ty Z170 Professional Gaming i7 captures the eyes by a true gaming black-and-red color gamut and a selected hardware base. The 12-phase VRM system provides power to the most demanding processors. Besides, all the components are cooled down by means of a passive cooler.

The PCB offers 4 DIMM slots which are targeting DDR4 memory modules with 3866+ MHz clock frequency. The maximal capacity of the integrated memory might not exceed 64 GB. To create storage subsystem the user might employ 4x SATA III ports, 3x SATA Express (compatible with SATA III), and 3x Ultra M.2 slots with 32 Gb/sec …

Gigabyte Readies Entry-Level Graphics Card GV-N640D5-2GI

Gigabyte is going to introduce one more entry-level graphics solution that corresponds to the updated Nvidia GeForce GT 640 series. Entitled Gigabyte GeForce GT 640 (GV-N640D5-2GI), the card employs GK107 GPU, running at 1046 MHz frequency instead of the preceding 900 MHz. The core, developed under 28 technological process, utilizes 384 CUDA cores.

It’s necessary to underline that the new-comer differs by the availability of 2 GB memory, whereas all etalon models take 1 GB only. Memory is represented by 64-bit GDDR5 chips that run at 5010 MHz effective frequency, if compared with 1800 MHz frequency that DDR3 modules demonstrate.

GV-N640D5-2GI comes with an improved design of PCB where a brand Ultra Durable 2 concept has been incorporated. This concept implies the employment of a high-quality hardware base, involving durable solid-state capacitors, transistors with low channel resistance RDS (on), and ferrite throttles with reduced power loss. Traditionally, the model …

Chassis CM Storm Trooper Review

Nowadays the differentiation of computer integration becomes more obvious. There is an accepted concept of ‘draught horses’ which are intended for the accomplishment of unpretentious assignments (for home use or office use), and high-end devices called to work miracles while working with diverse applications or playing 3D games. The first type of devices usually goes in standard integration without any foul-ups, but high-end models require more thorough approach towards the assembly.

Chassis is among those components which define the ‘filling’ of each individual computer, that is why, the selection of the appropriate item might take some time. CM Storm Trooper belongs to the chassis type which provides for the high-end computer integration. Moreover, this chassis is considered to be an ideal component for devices with high performance and solid high-temperature elements.
