The SilverStone FPS01 Device Returns the Optical Drive Bay into Game

Optical carriers are not popular anymore. Nowadays they are mostly used as license movies carriers, and not as user data storage media. SilverStone offers an alternate variant for those having an unexploitable optical drive of the Slim type.



The new device, called FPS01, is released in two variants, which differ in USB types only: the SST-FPS01 model offers a pair of standard А type ports, and SST-FPS01-C possesses only one С type port. FPS01 is compatible with the standard 12.7 mm Slim ODD optical drive bay and is installed in place of the needless DVD or Blu-ray bay. Though this is not the whole scope of the module’s functionality.


This device features the built-in SD and microSD card reader supporting SDHC and SDXC cards, and the place to install M.2 drive with 6 Gbps SATA interface of 2280 typical size.

SilverStone Debuts with SST-ST30SF Power Supply

SilverStone Technology has recently introduced its newest SFX power supply unit. Codenamed SST-ST30SF, it features 125x100x63.5 mm dimensions and weighs 800 g only. The unit is estimated for 300 W power and is capable to demonstrate more than 81% efficiency in 230 V networks. High efficiency level allowed the model to gain 80Plus Bronze certificate.



The most uncommon feature ascribed to SST-ST30SF is that it can operate in passive mode if thermal conditions allow. The unit is equipped with a fan of 80 mm dimensional type; it starts rotating only when the surrounding temperature reaches 55 degrees. This promotes for a considerable power reduction and practically silent work when the fan gets disabled. An average noise level on active operation makes up 18 dB.


SilverStone furnishes the new entry with a single +12V rail, estimated for 22 A current. In its turn, +3.3V rail is estimated for 21 A current, while +5V rail – for 20 A current. It should be noted that this unit …
