Silverstone Launches a New Product – the RL06 Chassis

The Silverstone Company is going to release its new product – the RL06 computer case. This relatively cost-effective model is mostly manufactured out of steel and plastic and possesses a plastic window on the side panel. It is represented in two colour variants: black with red and white with silver accents. The basic version is equipped with one 120 mm fan, and a Pro version – with 3 extra 120 mm LED-backlit fans.



The RL06 framework allows to mount ATX and Micro-ATX motherboards. The max length of the graphics adapter equals to 348 mm, and the ultimate CPU coolers height is 158 mm. Up to 7 expansion cards can be installed. Two 2.5” bays and three 3.5” drive bays are available. This Silverstone product features a pair of USB 3.0 ports, 2 USB 2.0 ports and audio jacks.


The RL06 chassis costs $80, weighs 6 kg and has the following dimensions: 200 х 477 х 455 mm.

Zalman Boasts a New Line of PSUs with an Improved Design

The line of products manufactured by Zalman has been just replenished with a new series of power supply units, codenamed Zalman LX. The series is currently represented by two models of 500 W and 600 W power: ZM500-LX and ZM600-LX. Both units employ an improved Dual Forward Converter Circuit design that ensures reliable and efficient functioning. They are also equipped with a single +12V rail and show compatibility with Intel ATX12V 2.31 standard.



Zalman LX PSUs utilize a couple of PCI Express sockets (one 6-contact and one 6+2-contact) for the connection with graphics cards, securing the support of AMD CrossFireX and Nvidia SLI technologies. Cooling of all internal components is ascribed to a low-noise fan of 120 mm dimensional type. Its operation is automatically monitored by Smart Fan Control system that provides for the achievement of an optimal balance between its efficiency and noise level.


The new-comers support a large amount of protective options that promote for …

Haswell processors for laptops will consume up to 57 W, desktop - up to 100

Intel provides with three graphics levels: GT1, GT2 and GT3. Desktop processors won’t receive graphics performance higher than GT2, but mobile processors will be able to boast of with GT3 class. Support of PCI Express 3.0 for Haswell processors will be quite usual characteristics, but at the memory controller little progress is seen — yet provides dual-channel DDR3-1600.



By energy consumption Haswell desktop versions will be divided into models with values of 35, 45, 65 and 95 watts of TDP level. For mobile processors the values are ​​37, 47 and 57 W. Finally, ultra book processors with built-in system logic will be filled by TDP level not more than 15 watts. It is assumed that this will enable them, among other things, be in standby mode up to 10 days without charge.


The desire of Intel to compete with AMD in terms of performance integrated in graphics processor, will add some work to companies producing cooling systems for laptops. The developers report about …
