SilverStone Launches 4-Port ECU01 PCI Expansion Card

Taking into account an ever increasing demand for USB 3.0 interfaces, SilverStone has elaborated a dedicated PCI expansion card, entitled ECU01. The card is designed in a low-profile form-factor with the support for PCI Express 2.0 x2 bus. It features a pair of 19-contact USB 3.0 sockets, each of which offers two USB 3.0 ports.

In keeping with the manufacturer, this comprehensive model is called to satisfy the need for high-speed interfaces, absent with old-fashioned systems. For sure, the amount of connectivity ports integrated within the motherboards (usually of entry-level/budgetary standard) is not always enough for enthusiasts and gamers. Hence, there can appear an acute need for additional expansion cards, like ECU01.

SilverStone ECU01 is based on Etron EJ198 controller, featuring an additional SATA interface that is responsible for an efficient power supply. Moreover, the model supports UASP protocol that accelerates data transfer speed. If the current OS does not …

Zalman Introduces Three New Fan Series for PC Cases

Zalman, a highly-acclaimed designer of miscellaneous hardware pieces, has elaborated three completely new series of low-noise fans: ZM-FDB(SF), ZM-LED(SF) and ZM-Plus(SF). The ‘triple’ embraces the models of 80 mm, 92 mm and 120 mm dimensions. The fans do not support PWM technology, thus feature a stable rotational speed. The most peculiar feature is low noise level (not more than 23 dB), despite the range of speed.

Zalman ZM-FDB(SF) are characterized by the implementation of high-quality fluid-dynamic bearings. Their lifespan is estimated as 150.000 hours. The other two fan series – Zalman ZM-LED(SF) and Zalman ZM-Plus(SF) — involve long-life bearings, which are thought to be quite reliable and effective. Their framework features dust-repelling mechanisms and this promotes for the elongated lifespan.

Certainly, the ‘triple’ enjoys similar features. For instance, all the fans employ an original Shark Fin blades design. It allows for the decrease of airflow …

Transcend produces memory kits aXeRam DDR3-2400 and DDR3-2133 with 8 GB of memory

The widely represented in the market a series of RAM sets Transcend aXeRam is now added with dual channel kit DDR3 of 8 GB with an effective frequency of 2133 and 2400 MHz. Modules are routinely equipped with aluminum radiators with high «scallops» and support overclocking profiles Intel XMP 1.3, actual for the processors Intel Ivy Bridge.

The package Transcend aXeRam DDR3-2133 2x 4 GB consists of two brackets with a combination of delay of memory 10-11-10-27 and moderate voltage 1.6 V. Overclocking enthusiasts will certainly prefer against it more productive Transcend aXeRam DDR3-2400 for the same amount. Timings have been raised in a given set up to 11-12-11-29, and default voltage — up to 1.65 V.

To increase the stability of the new items, they are made on an 8-layer PCB. Overclocking spirit of the tandem Transcend aXeRam DDR3-2133/2400 emphasizes the possibility of fine tuning by the utility aXeMod. In addition, aXeMod monitors the temperature of the memory.
