Lifting the Veil from USB Type-C Bus

Since the launch in 1995, Universal Serial Bus (USB) has proved itself as the most successful ever computing interface. Nowadays tens of billions of electronic devices are connected together due to it. It goes without saying that this bus has outlived a few modifications, each distinguished by higher speed and reliability. Thus, today the community is able to revel in a completely new modification – USB Type-C – that forecasts a lot privileges of connectivity process. Let’s see what users will get with a new bus.

Layout and Connectivity

In physical terms, Type-C is a bit larger than USB 2.0 Micro-B but a bit tinier than binary USB 3.0 Micro-B, featuring 8.34x2.56 mm. Such dimensions enable its connection to the devices of any type, including the thinnest smartphones/tablets. The oval-shaped socket houses 24 contact outputs (to compare: USB 3.0 sockets feature only 9 outputs).

The most outstanding physical peculiarity of Type-C is a symmetric connector that …

Enermax Outs High-Flown Twister Pressure Fan

One of the major requirements for an efficient CPU cooler is a high static pressure. The higher this index is, the more productive the blades are. Quite the contrary, the main requirement for a system fan is a volume of produced airflow, since it affects the air circulation within the case. Taking into account those facts, Enermax decided to elaborate a fan that would unite both demands. That is how Twister Pressure fan came into the market.

Enermax Twister Pressure is a high-efficiency fan targeting to be implementing within CPU cooling solutions. It is based on Twister Bearing 2, which framework has been optimized for a reliable operation under unfavorable thermal conditions (up to 85 degrees) and under high dust content. The second version of Twister Bearing is supposed to run over 160.000 hours in fail-proof mode; this is 60% more than the initial version could perform.

To continue, this fan offers three operational modes: Performance, Silent and Ultra Silent. All of …
