Rosewill Introduces PSU Line of 80 Plus Platinum Standards

Rosewill, Californian hardware manufacturer, has gladdened its potential customers with a new PSU line codenamed Fortress. The major peculiarity of this line is that all products are characterized by rather high efficiency coefficient: up to 94% in 230 V alternating current networks. The new line involves models of 450W, 550W, 650W, and 750W showings which have already received 80 Plus Platinum certificate.

Low power dissipation is achieved exactly due to the high efficiency which reduces ventilation demands immensely. The employment of 135 mm fans provided for the perceptible decreased of noise. Those features are considered to be the basic attraction for the customers.

All four models in Fortress line are developed according to a similar scheme with a single 12 V bus. The chief differentiation between the models lies in the output capacity and a cable set. Hence, the high-order PSU is capable to give current of up to 62.5 A; in the aggregate with the available 4 …

The drives can operate under 5V voltage within the temperature ranges of 0-+70 degrees. The manufacturer claims that their fail-proof operation time might achieve an unbelievable index — 1.200.000 hours.

In terms of performance, the implementation of advanced memory chips promotes for rather striking speed characteristics. Hence, the maximal sequential Read speed makes …

Liquid-Cooling System Zalman LQ315 Review

A few months after the last release of water-cooling systems, Zalman introduces a new series of products with a title attribute LQ3xx. The series consists of three models, LQ320, LQ315 and LQ310, which differentiate themselves primarily by dimensions. The senior cooler (LQ320) features 32 mm water block and 52 mm heatsink, the medium LQ315 cooler features 38 mm heatsink and analogous in dimensions water block; the junior cooler (LQ310) is the tiniest one and features 28 mm heatsink and water block. Zalman LQ315 greatly resembles its predecessor, CNPS20LQ, in design, however, is ready to offer some improved options, if compared with the previous cooler generations.

Design and Framework

Like any other water-cooling system, Zalman LQ315 consists of a water block combined with a pump and joined with a heatsink by means of flexible tubes. The water block is notable by the availability of 'Z' logo on its surface that is lighted blue during operation. Its round base, made of …
