Be Quiet! has supplemented its lineup of PC cases with two Super-Midi Tower models: the Dark Base 900 & the Dark Base Pro 900. Both new-comers allow for the installation of ATX/XL-ATX/E-ATX motherboards with the maximum of 8 expansion slots. The chassis is made of SECC steel with a mixture of ABS-plastic inserts. The Pro version comes with a side window made of a quenched glass.



Be Quiet! Dark Base 900 cases (585.5x577.2x242.7 mm) feature a pair of 5.25-inch drives bays, seven 3.5-inch bays as well as fifteen 2.5-inch drive bays. They are ready to accommodate CPU coolers of up to 185 mm in height, PSU of up to 284 mm in length, and graphics cards of up to 325 mm (with the drive bay)/470 mm (without the drive bay) in length. The range of external interfaces includes a single HD audio port & four USB ports (2x v 2.0, 2x v 3.0).


The difference between the two lies in the implemented cooling system. Both chassis come with an integrated fan controller. The controller inbuilt …

Crucial Showcases Voluminous MX300 Solid-State Drives

Crucial is about to launch a new series of voluminous SSDs, entitled MX300. The lineup consists of 2.5-inch models with thin cases (7 mm only), targeting as desktop so mobile platforms. Additionally, the delivery set offers a dedicated 2.5-inch frame for the installation into a 9.5-inch bay. The capacity of drives makes up 275 GB, 525 GB, 750 GB, 1 TB, and 2 TB.



SSDs Crucial MX300 is developed on 32-layer Micron 3D NAND TLC chips (48 GB) as well as Marvell 88SS1074 controller. Data transfer process is realized via SATA III (6 Gb/sec) interface. The maximal sequential Read/Write speed equals to 530 MB/sec/510 MB/sec. In its turn, the maximal random data transfer index approximates 83.000/92.000 IOPS (Read/Write).


The greenhorns are thought to support the following technologies: AES, ECC, T.R.I.M., Data Path Protection, S.M.A.R.T., Active Garbage Collection, Power Loss Prevention, and Extreme Energy Efficiency. Besides, Dynamic Write Acceleration identifies and writes the …

AMD Officially Launches FreeSync Technology

The much-talked about graphical technology from AMD – FreeSync – is already out. Its privileges over rival solutions might be seen from different angles. To begin with, it dramatically optimizes the gameplay by improving image smoothness, reducing lag time, and eliminating splitting. FreeSync enables the synchronization of screen refresh time with GPU refresh time in real time; hence, images are updated only when the graphical adapter shapes the frame.



To continue, AMD FreeSync, is an open standard which does not require calculations, since it is integrated within an updated DisplayPort 1.2a interface. As distinct from Nvidia’s G-Sync, there is no need to equip the monitor with a dedicated module. Moreover, this technology supports the widest refresh range: 9-240 Hz; therefore, monitors manufacturers receive a tool for a standalone definition of operational limits for a particular model.


Currently, FreeSync is implemented within six graphics adapters and within …
