ASRock FM2A88M-HD+ to Support the Latest AMD Kaveri APUs

ASRock has recently announced a new series of motherboards that are based on the prime-class AMD A88X chipset, targeting Socket FM2(+) CPUs of Trinity and Richland generation. Moreover, they are supposed to support the new-gen AMD Kaveri APUs with Steamroller microarchitecture. One of the most outstanding models within the series is FM2A88M-HD+ motherboard, which features a large amount of slots and sockets. At the same time, it remains a cost-efficient solution.

ASRock FM2A88M-HD+ is designed in a micro-ATX form-factor, featuring 234x183 mm dimensions. The company claims that this model is able to accommodate DDR3 RAM with 2133 MHz frequency, housed in two DIMM slots. Therein, the maximal memory capacity might achieve 32 GB. Hardware base consists of prime-quality solid-state capacitors and durable chokes. Three expansion slots are introduced by one PCI, one PCIe 2.0 x1, and one high-speed PCIe 3.0 x16; the latter demonstrates up to 15.75 Mb/sec bandwidth.

Greeting a Pair of Liquid Freezer 120 & 240 Coolers

Arctic announces a pair of liquid cooling systems entitled Liquid Freezer 120 and Liquid Freezer 240. They are targeting the most demanding CPUs designed by Intel & AMD. The first model perfectly matches processors with up to 250 W TDP, while the second one might cope with 300 W TDP. Pricing is set at 100 EUR and 130 EUR correspondingly. Both new-comers are shipped with a brand Arctic MX-4 thermal compound.

Arctic Liquid Freezer 120 accommodates a waterblock with a copper base, an efficient pump, 120-mm heatsink, long connecting hoses (326 mm), and a couple of 120-mm fans, based on a fluid dynamic bearing. They are monitored by means of PWM technology, enabling them to rates within 500-1350 RPM speed range. At the same time, the maximal noise level does not exceed 0.3 Sone.

To continue, Arctic Liquid Freezer 240 is distinguished by the implementation of a 240-mm heatsink and four 120-mm fans. Tests prove, that this cooler is able to maintain the temperature of Intel Core …

Biostar Outs a Triple of Racing Motherboards

Biostar has begun the 2016 year’s history with the launch of a new series of motherboards, entitled Racing. Currently, the lineup includes three ATX models — Z170GT7, H170GT3 & B150GT5 — based on Intel Z170, H170 and B150 chipsets respectively. The triple is compatible with Intel Skylake processors for Socket LGA1151.

Biostar Racing motherboards are developed according to Super 5 Design template. It entails a number of advantages. Among them:

— Super Sound – the employment of a high-quality audio subsystem Biostar Hi-Fi audio;

— Super Face – a unique visual styling of the PCB;

— Super Easy – the implementation of a well-considered hardware layout;

— Super Power – the usage of a reliable power subsystem with super durable ferrite and solid-state capacitors;

— Super Fun – the introduction of additional components for more sophistication (i.e. LED backlight).

Biostar Z170GT7 comes with 4 DIMM slots targeting DDR4-3200 MHz memory …
