ASRock Launches Z170M-PIO2 Mainboard with Unusual Layout

ASRock has stricken the general public by the development of a motherboard with an extraordinary layout. As a rule, mainboards targeting all-in-one solutions are void of expansion slots for graphics cards, due to lack of space. However, ASRock has designed a space-efficient model with an integrated PCI Express 3.0 x16 slot. Yet, it’s localized parallel to the PCB as against standard items with perpendicular slot orientation.



ASRock Z170M-PIO2 is based on Intel Z170 chipset for Socket LGA1511 platforms. It supports Intel Celeron/Pentium/Core i3/Core i5/Core i7 CPUs. The PCB features a pair of DIMM slots for the installation of DDR4 memory modules with the maximum clock frequency of 3466 MHz (up to 32 GB of capacity). Storage subsystem is introduced by 4 SATA 6 Gb/sec ports as well as a single Ultra M.2 x4 slot.


As far as expansion is concerned, the model accommodates a single PCIe 3.0 x 16 slot and one M.2 2230 slot, occupied by Wi-Fi/Bluetooth adapter. The 7.1-channel …

New Eisblock XPX Water Units by AlphaCool

Transfer efficiency of the thermal energy flux from the CPU to the cooling liquid in the circuit depends on the water unit. The AlphaCool Company, being famous for its liquid-cooling system components, has presented a new water units series, called Eisblock XPX. They’ll take the place of the previous model, NexXxoS XP3. The series of Eisblock XPX water blocks will be released on the market featuring various colour schemes, including the mountings colour. The manufacturer has taken into account the latest trends.



In new models the heat-exchange zone microchannel structure is refined: the fin spacing is reduced to 0.2 mm, and the fins number has grown up to 81. Thus, the heat-exchange area has become larger. The brand Ramp technology is applied to the heat-exchanger, which guarantees the absence of the coolant flow vorticity and its steady passing through the microchannels zone. At the same time the hydraulic circuit has been optimized to diminish flow resistance. Eisblock XPX …

Maxthon 3.0. Browser Review

The search for the needed information and work with various online data is currently facilitated due to the availability of various browsers. In the majority of cases, Internet users give preference to the most popular browsers, such as Opera, Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, IE, which proved to be multifunctional and user-friendly at the same time. This is a verity that cannot be argued, though IT market is full of alternative browsers which show good functional characteristics but are less-recognizable by the Internet community. Maxthon, which appeared in the market more than 10 years ago and is prognosticated to gain popularity in the nearest future, can be ascribed to such browsers.
