MSI Outs Cubi 2 with Kaby Lake Support

MSI has updated its lineup of mini-PCs with a new model – the Cubi 2 – that supports Intel Kaby Lake processors. Hence, the greenhorn comes equipped with either Intel Core i3-7100U two-core CPU that runs at 2.4 GHz frequency, Intel Core i5-7200U that operates at 2.5-3.1 GHz frequency (base/dynamic), or Intel Core i7-7500U that runs at 2.7-3.5 GHz frequency (base/dynamic). The model houses an integrated Intel HD Graphics 620 GPU.

MSI Cubi 2 mini-PCs are available in two formats: ‘light’ (115.2x112.2x34.6 mm), targeting M.2 SATA drives; ‘standard’ (115.2x112.2x42.7 mm), targeting traditional 2.5-inch drives. Besides, the models come in two case colors: black & white.

Internal layout allows for the installation of DDR4-2133 MHz memory modules of up to 32 GB capacity. They support motherboards with Intel H110 chipset and a single expansion slot which is occupied by M.2 2230 Wi-Fi + Bluetooth adapter by default.

This mini-PC accommodates gigabit LAN port, …

Chieftec Showcases Five New PSUs from Navitas Series

Chieftec, one of the largest German hardware manufacturers, has recently introduced a new series of power supply units, codenamed Navitas. The series is represented by 5 models: GPM-650C with 650W nominal power, GPM-750C with 750W nominal power, GPM-850C with 850W nominal power, GPM-1000C with 1000W nominal power, and GPM-1250C with 1250W nominal power correspondingly. All the products have won 80Plus Gold certificate, due to more than 90% efficiency in the high workloads.

Chieftec Navitas PSUs correspond to ATX12V v2.3 standard and support Intel Core 4th gen. processors that require little current strength on +12V rail in sleep mode. The models also support active power-factor correction option to provide for the maximal stability during operation. They are equipped with a composite cable system and a single +12V rail, estimated for the maximal current from 54 A to 104 A (this index depends on the unit’s power).

All five units are cooled down by 140 mm fans with PWM …

Scythe to Introduce Monochrome Pro and Monochrome Value CPU Coolers

Scythe, an outstanding developer of prime-quality hardware solutions, announces its newest elaborations: the Monochrome Pro and Monochrome Value CPU coolers. Both products are differentiated by truly small-sized dimensions and can be incorporated into the most compact PC cases. The couple supports the latest Intel’s processors, which TDP level does not go beyond 95 W. So far, there is no information about the release date and pricing, however, Scythe promises to unveil the data in the short run.

In terms of framework, CPU cooler Scythe Monochrome Pro consists of an aluminum heatsink and a single fan. It features 112x112x62 mm dimensions and is compatible with Intel LGA 1150/1155/1156 platforms. Running at 800-2800 RPM, it is able to produce up to 52.98 CFM airflow (the minimal airflow index equals to 14.83 CFM). When running at low pace, the noise level stays at the minimal level of 10.2 dB; still, even when the rotational speed achieves its maximum, the noise does not …
