Gigabyte Intros Affordable GA-B85M-D2V Plus Mainboard

Micro-ATX/mini-ITX mainboards keep on capturing the market due to the augmentation of small-sized PC platforms. Against this background, Gigabyte is constantly enlarging its portfolio of compact motherboards. Take GA-B85M-D2V Plus alone. This model might boast an optimized functional and an improved audio subsystem combined with a sleek design and a range of protection doo-dads.

Gigabyte GA-B85M-D2V Plus takes Intel B85 chipset as the basis. The latter supports Socket LGA1150 CPUs (Pentium, Celeron, Intel Core). The company’s designers employed an improved fiberglass mode of superposition on elaboration of PCB textolite; this is called to protect the board from humidity, electrostatic discharge and voltage instability.

The board’s layout supports Ultra Durable 4 Plus design that involves only high-quality components, like solid-state capacitors, transistors with low open channel resistance. The PCB is equipped with two DIMM slots ready for 16 GB of DDR3 memory (1600 …

Meet New Landking Mid-Tower Chassis from Deepcool

Deepcool, known initially as the provider of prime-class cooling solutions, decided to gladden its fan audience by the release of a new mid-tower case, entitled Landking. The new-comer is targeting ATX, mini-ITX and micro-ATX mainboards, expansion cards of up to 280 mm in length, and CPU coolers of up to 165 mm in height. The chassis is made of steel with plastic inclusions, differentiated by a stylish silver coloring.

Deepcool Landking features 512x218x515 mm dimensions and weighs 6.67 kg. Its internal layout is sufficient for the installation of eight expansion cards, three 5.25-inch drives, five 3.5-inch drives, and a pair of 2.5-inch drives. The frontal I/O panel offers two USB 3.0 ports as well as two 3.5 mm mini-jacks; they are accompanied by two USB 2.0 ports and a dedicated dock for SATA interface.

To continue, the chassis offers nice opportunities for the organization of a highly-efficient cooling system. Hence, it accommodates four vacancies for the installation …

Gigabyte Shows Off a Bespoke GTX 970 Graphics Card

Gigabyte has intrigued its fans by the design of an unusual videocard – the GeForce GTX 970 (GV-N970TTOC-4GD). It is based on Nvidia GM-204-200-A1 GPU (Maxwell) but with overclocked frequencies. The core operates at 1101 MHz/1241 MHz instead of etalon 1050 MHz/1178 MHz. The GPU is accompanied with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory (256-bit bus) that runs at 7010 MHz efficient clock frequency.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 970 is distinguished by the implementation of Twin Turbo Fan cooling system. It consists of three copper heatpipes with direct touch technology, an aluminum heatsink, and a radial-flow fan; the latter grasps air from both sides of the adapter due to the shortened PCB design.

As a result, the airflow increases by 24%, whereas the cooling effect enhances by 29%. Thanks to this, the card is thought to be an optimal solution for Nvidia SLI configurations.

It should be noted that this graphics card boasts a high-quality hardware base – Ultra Durable VGA. A set of external …
