Deepcool is preparing a new cooler with heat pipes

Deepcool production company of inexpensive and quite efficient cooling systems has provided a sample of CPU cooler — Big Frost (tentative codename), which is an extension of current Frostwin model. Previous model has 4 sintered powder heatpipes, which conduct heat from the processor to protect it from overheating. Also, like a new model, it has 120mm fans.

New model has a simple design, but strict, almost «standard», forms will not prevent it from showing a decent performance. It works with less noise and performs an effective cooling. Big Frost consists of a nickel-plated copper base with a miniature auxiliary radiator, six U-shaped copper heatpipes, each of 6 mm in diameter, and two sections of aluminium plates of similar thickness. Pre-installed fans are running at different speeds. One turns with intensity of 1300 r / min (22.6 dB noise), the other — in the range from 900 to 1500 rev / min (21,4-32,1 dB).

Dimensions of construction form 126x136x159 mm, weight — …

ASRock Introduces Affordable H110M-DS/Hyper Mainboard

ASRock enters the market with another budget-oriented micro-ATX mainboard – the H110M-DS/Hyper (the recommended price makes up $60). The greenhorn is designed on Intel H110 chipset as well as ASRock Hyper BCLK Engine. The latter realizes the overclocking of Intel Skylake CPUs (for Socket LGA1151) by means of BCLK alteration; therewith, all other key nodes operate off-the-shelf.

ASRock H100M-DS/Hyper employs 4+1-phase power subsystem. The PCB accommodates 2x DIMM slots for DDR4-2133 MHz RAM with the maximal volume of 32 GB. Storage subsystem is represented by four SATA III ports, whereas expansion facilities include one PCIe 3.0 x16 and one PCIe 2.0 x1 ports.

Audio subsystem is governed by Realtek ALC887 controller and three 3.5-mm sockets. In its turn, network facilities are backed by Realtek RTL8111GR controller. Connectivity options embrace one RJ-45 port, one DVI video port, two PS/2 ports, and four USB ports for peripherals (both v 2.0 and v 3.0).

Mushkin Releases SSDs for Ultra-Thin Devices

Tendencies of the the past twelve months vividly demonstrate that ultra-thin devices are gradually replacing traditional laptops and nettops. Indeed, ultrabooks are becoming in great demand as with corporate clients, so with average customers. This is explained firstly by their ultra-compact and ultra-convenient design, and secondly, by their unmatched performance and data storage facilities. The latter is secured by dedicated SSD solutions which are delivered in compact format. Mushkin follows the current market tendencies, introducing ultra-compact SSD series, codenamed 7mm Enhanced Chronos Deluxe.

The 7mm Chronos Deluxe series is represented by six models of 60GB, 90GB, 120GB, 180GB, 240GB, and 480GB capacities. They have been developed as an alternative to the Chronos Deluxe 9.3 mm SSD line with the aim to absolutely comply with ultrabook form-factor. All the models of new series are based on LSI SandForce SF-2281 controller. They employ NAND MLC synchronous flash-memory and …
