Gigabyte Unleashes a Pair of Brix Mini-PCs for Skylake Platform

Gigabyte keeps on expanding the segment of mini-PCs with its proper Brix solutions. This time the lineup has been replenished with two models: Brix GB-BSCEA-3955 & Brix GB-BSCEHA-3955. The two differ from each other by the height of the case. The first new-comer features 119.4x112.6x34.4 mm dimensions, whereas its companion boasts 119.4x112.6x46.8 mm dimensions. The latter allows for the installation of an additional 2.5-inch drive of 7.0 or 9.5 mm height. Both models are targeting Intel Skylake platforms.



The other characteristics of these mini-PCs are identical. They are based on two-core Intel Celeron 3955U CPUs (14 nm) which operate at 2.0 GHz frequency. Processors cooperate closely with Intel HD Graphics 510 that runs at 300-900 MHz clock frequency. The motherboard PCB (110x105 mm) houses a couple of SO-DIMM slots for DDR4-2133 MHz RAM (up to 32 GB).


Both Brix solutions offer one slot for the installation of M.2 2280 drive and a sole M.2 expansion slot which is …

Arctic Cooling Unveils New Freezer i32 & A32 CPU Coolers

Arctic Cooling AG replenishes its line of CPU coolers with a couple of new-comers. The Freezer i32 and the Freezer A32 feature analogous dimensions (123x95x150 mm), but are targeting to work with different platforms. The first model is compatible with Intel Socket LGA 2011 and 115x platforms, whereas the second version is predestined for the CPUs targeting AMD AM2/AM2+, AM3/AM3+, FM1 and FM2 platforms.



Arctic Cooling Freezer i32 & A32 consist of an aluminum heatsink with 45 thin plates and four U-shaped 6-mm copper heatpipes which support direct touch technology. It goes without saying that these coolers come equipped with a fan. This is a 120 mm propeller that supports PWM technology; the latter enables the change of rotational speed from 0 to 1350 RPM. The maximal TDP level of the catered CPUs should not exceed 150 W.


A dedicated bearing technology with alloy/lubricant combination provides for a lower friction and higher heat dissipation efficiency. The nominal delivery …

ECS to Release a Small-Sized H110S-2P Motherboard

ECS has officially introduced a new mini-STX motherboard, entitled H110S-2P. Featuring 147x140 mm dimensions, the greenhorn is based on Intel H110 chipset for Socket LGA1151 platform. The most peculiar thing about the mainboard is the availability of a full-sized LGA socket which allows for the installation of desktop CPUs (Intel Pentium/Celeron/Core i3/Core i5/Core i7) with the maximal TDP of 65 W.



Upon the whole, the model is targeting small-sized PCs. ECS H110S-2P accommodates a pair of SO-DIMM slots with support for 32 GB of DDR4-2133 MHz memory modules. Storage subsystem is backed by a single SATA 6 Gb/sec port & a single M.2 slot for SSD. There is also another M.2 slot but it is intended for the integration of wireless Wi-Fi/Bluetooth modules.


Audio subsystem is developed on the basis of Realtek ALC662 controller, whereas network facilities – on the basis of Realtek 8111H controller. The motherboard comes equipped with a couple of 3.5-mm audio ports, one RJ-45 …
