Lian Li PC-B12 - Aluminum chassis for silence devotees

Lian Li engineers have decided to diversify the range of branded chassis with “quiet” PC-B12. This Mid-Tower model is designed in such a way as to minimize the noise coming from the system unit. To do this, the anterior wall of the chassis is made solid and in construction added the cover for the rear fan, included damping pad for hard drives and fans, as well as 'soft' feet, on which the hull stands.

Lian Li PC-B12 is currently available only in black version. Its dimensions are 498 (L) x 210 (W) x 472 (H) mm, weight — 6.4 kg.

The pair of «external» 5.25-inch bays should as well be considered.

New model doesn’t have vent on the front panel; it is migrated to the lower bound of the chassis and serves two 140 mm fan located opposite basket for storage. Blow-out …

Intel to Take Care about Power-Efficiency of Ivy Bridge Processors

The rising competition between the two giants in the manufacture of processing units, Intel and AMD, makes each of the two invent ever newer technologies and implement them in their products. The attempts to dominate in the market and win as many consumers usually develop into brand new approaches and brand new advanced facilities.

In this light, Intel is going to upgrade its Ivy Bridge processors to make them more power-efficient. But power-efficiency does not imply that processing units will show less performance; quite the contrary, the manufacturer is willing to combine an utmost performance with the maximal power efficiency level.

Currently, the most power-saving processors of Ivy Bridge generation can be found in mobile devices on Windows platform and in Apple MacBook Air devices. Their TDP level is recorded at 17W. As appears from the above mentioned, the TDP level in upgraded Ivy Bridge processors will be lower than 17W, though the developers do not voice the margin …
