Asus VivoPC K20 Strikes by Size-to-Performance Ratio

Asus has recently introduced another desktop PC model, entitled VivoPC K20. The new-comer is characterized by small-sized dimensions (381x279x96 mm, capacity — 10 liters) and stylish bodywork. It takes little space on the table and might be placed as in vertical so in horizontal aspects. The customers will be surprised to see a keyboard and a mouse in the nominal delivery set.



Asus VivoPC K20 supports the installation of motherboards based on Intel H110 chipset with Socket LGA1151 CPUs (Pentium, Celeron, Core i3/i5/i7). The CPU comes with an integrated Intel HD Graphics core; however, it’s possible to add a self-dependent graphics card. The PCB allows for the installation of up to 16 GB of DDR4-2133 MHz memory.


Storage subsystem offers space for HDDs of up to 3 TB capacity. The connection of other storage solutions is realized via a pair of SATA 6 Gb/sec ports. Expansion facilities are due to one PCIe 3.0 x16 and one mini-PCIe slots.


The CPU is cooled down by an …

Scythe to Release a General-Duty Grand Kama Cross 3 CPU Cooler

Scythe, a well-known Japanese designer of top-notch PC cases & cooling systems, announces the release in the European market of its general-duty CPU cooler, entitled Grand Kama Cross 3 (codename: SCGKC-3000). The greenhorn features 171x147x140 mm dimensions and weighs 790 g. It is compatible with an overwhelming majority of Intel and AMD platforms (except for AM1). Pricing is set at 40 EUR.



Scythe Grand Kama Cross 3 consists of a two-section aluminum heatsink that includes multi-form ribs, a copper base, four copper heatpipes, and a 140-mm fan GlideStream. The latter supports PWM technology which allows the blades to rotate within 400 RPM and 1300 RPM range. On low revolutions the airflow reaches 50.8 CFM, while on the peak rotational index the airflow achieves 165.1 CFM index. Despite high efficiency, the noise level remains on a comfortable level: 12.5-30.7 dB.


This cooler is additionally furnished with a dedicated Hyper Precision Mounting System. It employs screws …

ASRock Outs N3150DC-ITX Mainboard

ASRock has gladdened all devotees of small-sized, power-efficient & sustainable PC/multimedia systems by the introduction of a mini-ITX motherboard, entitled N3150DC-ITX. The model comes equipped with a 4-core Intel Atom N3150 CPU, running at 1.6 GHz basic frequency with the possibility to overclock up to 2.08 GHz frequency. Its key privilege is a sparing TDP level – 6 W only.



ASRock N3150DC-ITX boasts a totally passive cooling: the PCB houses a noiseless heatspreader without a fan. Memory subsystem is represented by two SO-DIMM slots which support the installation of DDR3/DDR3L-1600 MHz modules. The PCB teases only top-tier hardware components, including solid-state capacitors, ELNA audio caps, etc.


Storage might be organized due to a pair of SATA III 6 Gb/sec ports and the same number of SATA II 3 Gb/sec ports. A single PCI-e 2.0 x1 slot is intended for an expansion card, while mini PCI-e Express slot – for a wireless network interface module.
