Meet Tiny B150M Night Elf Mainboard from MSI

MSI has added a new micro-ATX motherboard to its Performance Gaming series of products. Entitled B150M Night Elf, the new-comer is differentiated by an outstanding black-and-red PCB design with a stylish LED lighting. The model is based on Intel B150 chipset and supports LGA1151-compatible CPUs on Skylake architecture.



MSI B150M Night Elf receives power via 24-pin ATX and 8-pin EPS connectors. The VRM system is organized according to 4+2-phase scheme with passive cooling. The PCB offers four slots for the mounting of DDR4-2133 MHz memory modules (up to 64 GB capacity), two PCIe 3.0 x1 slots, one PCIe 3.0 x16, and one PCIe 3.0 x16@4.


Storage subsystem is introduced by six SATA III 6 Gb/sec ports, whereas for the connection of various external devices there are six USB 3.1 ports (10 Gb/s). Network facilities are ensured by means of Intel I219-V controller. At the same time, audio subsystem Audio Boost 3 employs Realtek ALC1150 controller.

Gigabyte Debuts with Mini-ITX Motherboard C1007UN-D

Gigabyte has officially introduced a new motherboard model C1007UN-D, developed in mini-ITX form-factor. As seen from the dimensions, the novice is intended to be employed within small-sized multimedia or industrial systems. Chipset Intel NM70 with the integrated two-core ULV processor Intel Celeron 1007U are considered to be the heart of the board. The CPU is cooled down by a compact active cooling system which involves an aluminum heatsink and a small fan.



Video subsystem is represented by an integrated graphics core that belongs to Intel HD Graphics series. The core runs at the nominal 350 MHz clock frequency, however this index might be dynamically increased up to 1000 MHz. Audio subsystem is realized by means of Realtek ALC887 controller that supports 7.1-channel sounding. Network facilities (LAN) are ensured due to a pair of gigabit controllers elaborated by Realtek.


To continue, memory subsystem consists of two DIMM slots which support up to 8 GB modules of DDR3-1333 …

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).
