Modular Power Supply 650W Chieftec A80

Evaluating the effectiveness of modern computer power supplies, the most attention is paid to their coefficient of performance (COP) at a given load — usually means of 20%, 50% and 100%. At the same time, not less important requirement, established by standard 80PLUS should be considered. That means — the preservation of this level of performance for all occurring in the world supply voltage variations, that is in the range of 100-240 V.

The standard rules of 80PLUS at different levels (Basic, Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, etc.) are performed for two voltage 115 V and 230 V. In both cases, the normalized PS should show the efficiency of not less than specified for each category level. Not usual power supply CTG-650C model of the new A-80 series from the Chieftec company is interesting in that it has officially claimed efficiency of 85% or more, but only for nets 220-240 V.

As the advantages of such solution can immediately be noted a lower price, due to less stringent …

Thermaltake Showcases an Original Bigwater 760 Pro Cooling System

Thermaltake Technology, a renowned Taiwanese designer of varied PC hardware pieces, is going to release its new original water-cooling system, codenamed Bigwater 760 Pro. This cooler is targeting powerful processors that require no less powerful cooling. The product demonstrates a wide compatibility with all novel processors that support Socket LGA775, LGA1366, LGA115x, LGA2011, FM1, FM2, AM2(+), and AM3(+).

Bigwater 760 Pro consists of three major parts: waterblock, head block and a couple of hoses. The implemented waterblock features nickeled-copper base of 45x35 mm dimensions. The head block features 252.8x145.8x84 mm dimensions and takes two 5.25-inch bays within the chassis. Its framework involves a pump, a heatsink and a tank for coolant.

The pump is based on a ceramic bearing and produces not more than 16 dB noise. Its performance level achieves 500 liters/hour, while Mean Time Between Failures index is estimated at eighty thousand hours. The integrated heatsink is …

Dell Brings Monitor E2414H to the Japanese Market

Dell, a renowned American computer technology corporation, starts selling its new PC monitor E2414H in the Japanese market. The new-comer is targeting budget-oriented customers, although it offers much more than traditional budgetary displays. This 24-inch model features 418.3x570.9x164.2 mm dimensions and is distinguished by an optimized color rendering quality. Moreover, it is certified to work with Windows 8 OS.

PC monitor E2414H is based on TN+film array with 3H protective coverage. It supports Full HD resolution (1920x1080) and is equipped with a power-saving LED backlit. An average power consumption level makes up 20 W, while the maximal TDP level does not transcend the margin of 30 W. This allowed the model to receive EPEAT Gold, TCO and Energy Star certificates.

The list of all major E2414H specifications is listed below:

— aspect ratio: 16:9;

— array response time: 5 ms (GtG);

— maximal brightness: 250 cd/m2;

— viewing angles: 170/160 degrees …
