Lian Li PC-10N: Chassis with an Extraordinary Motherboard Localization

Lian Li, a well-known manufacturer of PC cases, has officially introduced its newest chassis codenamed PC-10N. The model is designed in a popular mid-tower form-factor and is ready to accommodate motherboards of ATX, mini-ITX and micro-ATX standard. The chassis differentiates itself by an unusual motherboard localization: instead of conventional tray, the layout stipulates dedicated strips that fix the board. This was done with the aim to provide for a better airflow and to facilitate cable management process. Besides, absence of the tray makes the case much lighter.

Lian Li PC-10N is delivered in two color samples: silver (PC-10NA) and black (PC-10NB). Internal framework allows for the assembling of quite powerful PC systems. It might house rather high CPU coolers (up to 155 mm), rather lengthy expansion cards (up to 300 mm), and ATX-compatible power supply units of up to 300 mm in length. There is a possibility of removing HDD bay to free space for even more lengthy adapters …

Intel DH77DF - motherboard of Mini-ITX format on chipset Intel H77 (Socket 1155)

Motherboard Intel DH77DF is a part of a series Media, which focuses on working with media content, including the creation and viewing of video. Support for high-performance processors and the availability of high-grade graphics card slot allows use it for building a compact gaming systems.

DH77DF uses a blue color PCB material, like many other Intel products of mass series. There is only one indicator green LED of power supply. The board looks very good good, mainly due to the dense deployment of a large number of elements in a limited space. This integration continues to amaze also in the age of quad phones.

The manufacturer managed to install on board two standard slots for memory modules, so that the total amount up to 16 GB — this is also more than enough for most usage scenarios. Officially supported speeds up to DDR3-1600. Test modules by default worked in 1333, but after selecting in BIOS Setup XMP profile it could start in 2000, but with the 2133 system it was not …

Sapphire Offers an Alternative Radeon HD 7870 GHz Graphics Card

Sapphire Technology, a renowned supplier of graphics solutions, has added an alternative model of AMD Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition to its graphics cards model line. The new model is primarily notable by the integration of a two-slot Dual-X cooler that facilitated the process of entitling: Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 GHz Dual-X Edition. This cooler consists of a voluminous aluminum heatsink, a couple of large fans, and a few copper heat pipes which are covered by a plastic lid.

Graphics card Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 GHz Dual-X Edition is based on Pitcairn chip with 1280 current processors; it is developed under 28 nm technological process and Graphics Core Next architecture. The core is able to operate at the nominal 1000 MHz frequency. Blue printed circuit board is the heart of the adapter. PCB is designed particularly for PCI-e 3.0 x16 bus and houses 2GB of GDDR5 memory with 256-bit interface. The memory is capable to achieve the clock frequency of 4800 MHz.
