Zalman Introduces Highly Efficient FX70 Passive Cooler

Zalman, a renowned South Korean designer of various hardware solutions, has recently introduced its latest CPU passive cooler, entitled FX70. The new-entry features 110x140x158 mm dimensions and comes without any fans.

At a price of 90 $, IconBIT IS308 offers the buyer an autonomous Torrent-downloader, a network drive, support for protocols Samba and FTP, gigabit network interface and USB 3.0 port.

The device has stylish black aluminium hull and comes with a stand for vertical installation. IconBIT iS308 looks more like a normal external hard drive rather than the NAS. And if for someone Synology design seems too plastic, and QNAP — too angular, the iconBIT iS308 looks modern, simple and stylish.

The next thing that catches an eye — is the lack of a fan. Finally, there is a NAS with passive cooling. …
