Deepcool to Release an Updated Lucifer K2 Efficient CPU Cooler

Deepcool has introduced a ‘companion’ to its well-known cooler entitled Lucifer V2. The all-new Lucifer K2 features 163x146.5x131 mm dimensions and weighs 1047 g. The new-comer supports AMD and Intel platforms, including LGA2011-v3, LGA2011, LGA1366, LGA115x, LGA775 (Intel) & Socket FM2, FM2+, FM1, AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+ (AMD) as well as various CPUs with TDP level of not more than 130 W.

Deepcool Lucifer K2 boasts a purely-polished copper base, six copper heatpipes and an aluminum heatsink (140x110x163 mm). The latter ensures a large heat dissipation area. Despite having stately proportions, the cooler does not block off the access towards DIMM slots.

The key differentiation between V2 and K2 models lies in the choice of a fan. The previous solution featured a 140-mm item, while the newer one – a 120-mm fan, based on a fluid-dynamic bearing. The fan supports PWM technology that provides for a wide rotational range — from 600 RPM to 1800 RPM, — generating up to …

Gigabyte Unveils a Pair of Brix GB Mini PCs

Gigabyte has expanded its portfolio by a pair of mini PCs which entered Brix series. The GB-BSi5-6200 & GB-BSi5H-6200 are housed in compact cases (119.4x112.6x34.4 mm & 119.4x112.6x46.8 mm respectively) with a polished metal stylization. Both new-comers take a 2-core Intel Core i5-6200U CPU (14 nm) that is able to operate in a 4-channel mode. Its base clock frequency equals to 2.3 GHz, however during overclocking this index rises to 2.8 GHz.

Gigabyte Brix GB-BSi5-6200 and GB-BSi5H-6200 PCs come with an integrated Intel HD Graphics 520 GPU. Memory subsystem is represented by two SO-DIMM slots, ready to welcome 6 GB of DDR3L-1600 MHz modules. The first model features one M.2 slot for the connection of storage devices; the second model boasts one M.2 and one SATA III slot, accompanied by a 2.5-inch drive bay.

Both mini PCs accommodate a single PCI Express expansion slot that is taken by Wi-Fi + Bluetooth adapter. Audio subsystem is based on Realtek ALC255 controller, while …

Meet the First RAID Controller with Sixteen SATA 6 Gb/sec Ports

Adaptec by PMC introduces the first in the market RAID controller series with the outstanding amount of SAS/SATA 6 Gb/sec ports. Adaptec Series 7 combines low-profile expansion cards developed particularly for PCI Express 3.0 bus. The integrated properties are called to enhance the bandwidth of the bus due to the availability of sixteen SAS/SATA 6 Gb/sec ports.

According to the claimed specifications, these RAID controllers are capable to demonstrate up to 450000 IOPS performance (on random writing (4 KB) conditions) when the number of connected SSDs equals to 16. Such performance showings are currently insuperable by a number of contemporary RAID controllers.

Adaptec Series 7 includes eight models which are differentiated by an amount of external and internal ports. All the models are low-profile expansion cards which are equipped with up to 24 ports. Such technological innovation became possible thanks to the implementation of compact HD mini-SAS sockets and …
