Midi-Tower Chassis CoolerMaster HAF XM Review

Chassis of full-tower form factor have always been considered an appropriate base for the integration of super computers. Such chassis usually have enough spacing for the installation of solid cooling systems, graphics cards, as well as several hard drives. However, full-tower means voluminous, and not everyone is ready to 'add' this chassis to the surrounding design. Thus, there appeared a perfect substitute for full-tower devices: midi-tower chassis. Despite the existing outlooks concerning midi-tower capacity, the market is replenishing with products that are called to comply with contemporary design and performance requirements. CoolerMaster HAF XM belongs to the range of midi-tower chassis which show unmatched efficiency and are ergonomic in design simultaneously.

Plextor Debuts with M.2 6G Solid-State Drive

Plextor, an award-winning Japanese SSD designer, launches its another M.2 solution, codenamed 6G. This drive features 42 mm length only, fulfilling space requirements of small-sized but high-performance cases. The new-comer is available in two capacity variations: 64 GB (PX-64M6G-2242) and 128 GB (PX-128M6G-2242). Their retail price makes up $50 and $90 respectively.
