Meet Gold-Certified ZM1200-EBT PSU from Zalman

Zalman is well-known for designing affordable PC components. Their budget-oriented nature implies stable but medium efficiency. Things are different with the company’s latest PSU, entitled ZM1200-EBT: it is in stark contrast to the other solutions, due to high wattage and decent performance. The model yields 1200 W power, whereas its efficiency level achieves 92%. Due to this, the unit was conferred 80Plus Gold certificate.

Gaming- & overclocking-targeting Zalman ZM1200-EBT employs a single +12V design. Its output capability is able to reach 100 A. This PSU supports Intel ATX 12V 2.3 and EPS 12V 2.92 standards. The hardware base incorporates Japanese capacitors with 105C temperature grade as well as high-quality DC-DC converters.

To continue, the greenhorn features modular cabling system. Upon the whole, the case accommodates 15 sockets for the connection of targeted wires: 8x 8-pin sockets for CPU & GPU, 2x 18-pin and 10-pin items for the motherboard, 5x 6-pin items …

Greeting PowerColor Radeon R9 290X New-Generation Graphics Cards

PowerColor has officially introduced a pair of high-efficiency graphics cards developed on the new-generation Radeon R9 290X series adapters. Codenamed PowerColor Radeon R9 290X, both new-comers support the latest graphics technologies, i.e. DirectX 11.2 and OpenGL 4.2. The models feature a totally identical design, still there is one differentiation: one of the models is equipped with a key to Battlefield 4 game. Such ‘bonus’ has resulted in a bit heightened price of $580, if compared with the standard model that costs $550.

Both cards are based on AMD Hawaii XT chip. It has been dynamically overclocked by PowerColor to 1030 MHz, whereas the nominal clock frequency remained the same – 800 MHz. In order to enhance the performance, the GPU has been supplemented with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory with 512-bit interface that runs at 5000 MHz.

To proceed with the specifications, both graphics adapters accommodate four rear video ports (HDMI, DisplayPort, DVI-I, and DVI-D). …

ASRock Outs N3150DC-ITX Mainboard

ASRock has gladdened all devotees of small-sized, power-efficient & sustainable PC/multimedia systems by the introduction of a mini-ITX motherboard, entitled N3150DC-ITX. The model comes equipped with a 4-core Intel Atom N3150 CPU, running at 1.6 GHz basic frequency with the possibility to overclock up to 2.08 GHz frequency. Its key privilege is a sparing TDP level – 6 W only.

ASRock N3150DC-ITX boasts a totally passive cooling: the PCB houses a noiseless heatspreader without a fan. Memory subsystem is represented by two SO-DIMM slots which support the installation of DDR3/DDR3L-1600 MHz modules. The PCB teases only top-tier hardware components, including solid-state capacitors, ELNA audio caps, etc.

Storage might be organized due to a pair of SATA III 6 Gb/sec ports and the same number of SATA II 3 Gb/sec ports. A single PCI-e 2.0 x1 slot is intended for an expansion card, while mini PCI-e Express slot – for a wireless network interface module.
