Platinum PSU FSP Aurum 92+ 650W Review

Up-to-date power supply units are able to achieve 80-90% efficiency due to 80 Plus standard. The integration of this standard provides for better power-saving facilities, heat level and noise level. Still, some customers give preference to performance rather than energy saving; thus PSUs from FSP will become the most wise solution for such people. Last year FSP introduced Aurum series and today the company expands the line with a new model — Aurum 92+. The model is represented so far with a single power variation – 650W, and corresponds to 80 Plus Platinum requirements.

General Peculiarities

Correspondence to Platinum standards implies that FSP Aurum 92+ unit should demonstrate not less than 91% nominal efficiency, 90% efficiency at 20 percent loading, and 94% efficiency at 50 percent loading. Testing results prove the claimed characteristics, making this model a desirable high-end acquirement. Aurum 92+ is delivered in a standard cardbox that contains FSP logo …

Deepcool is preparing a new cooler with heat pipes

Deepcool production company of inexpensive and quite efficient cooling systems has provided a sample of CPU cooler — Big Frost (tentative codename), which is an extension of current Frostwin model. Previous model has 4 sintered powder heatpipes, which conduct heat from the processor to protect it from overheating. Also, like a new model, it has 120mm fans.

New model has a simple design, but strict, almost «standard», forms will not prevent it from showing a decent performance. It works with less noise and performs an effective cooling. Big Frost consists of a nickel-plated copper base with a miniature auxiliary radiator, six U-shaped copper heatpipes, each of 6 mm in diameter, and two sections of aluminium plates of similar thickness. Pre-installed fans are running at different speeds. One turns with intensity of 1300 r / min (22.6 dB noise), the other — in the range from 900 to 1500 rev / min (21,4-32,1 dB).

Dimensions of construction form 126x136x159 mm, weight — …

Kimdecent created a computer Droid Stick T4 for lovers of small devices

Personal computer — this has long been not only a cumbersome system unit and monitor, as this phrase is now called nettops and more compact devices of class «micro-PC.» For public discussion was presented the computer Droid Stick T4 from a Chinese company Kimdecent, barely surpassing dimensions of a standard USB-stick with its size.

Initially, the micro-PC Kimdecent Droid Stick T4 comes with preinstalled Google Android, updated to version 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich, but the manufacturer provides the ability to install any other distro. The only requirement is to it — the support of processors with the architecture of ARM. By the way, a modification of Linux Ubuntu can work with it.

The system in this case is on the internal flash memory of 4 GB, which can be increased through the use of cards microSD. Supported capacity — 32 gigabytes. Kimdecent Droid Stick T4 is based on the processor Allwinner A10 dual-core and 1.5 GHz. Full-time package includes a 1-gigabyte memory …
