Solid-State Drive OCZ Agility 4 Review

Up-to-date SSD manufacturers are inclined to employ MLC flash-memory with synchronous interface in their product lines. The implementation of exactly such memory interface allows balancing the advanced performance with moderate price. This is especially vital for SSDs with SATA 3 6Gb/sec interface. Nevertheless, some producers take the challenge to implement flash-memory with asynchronous interface in their drives. As a result, the final products go at more attractive price but with more modest speed characteristics. OCZ dared to overcome this speed drawback by releasing SSD Agility 4 series. The models included in the series are based on asynchronous flash-memory interface and, according to the company's words, prove to show quite decent speed index.



Chief Peculiarities


Despite the prevalence of SandForce controllers implemented in SSDs, OCZ decided to use quite different platform for its new series. Agility 4 employs Indilinx Everest 2 controllers which, in some way, …

SCION-32 Combines a PC and a Monitor in Itself

The E-BLUE company has introduced an interesting solution at the CES 2017 exhibition in Las Vegas, called SCION-32. This is the first Hybrid-Tower monitor and simultaneously an AIO computer with prospects for upgrading.



This 32-inch product has a QHD 2,560 × 1,440 pixels resolution and is backlit on the sides.


The SCION-32 system allows to install Micro-ATX and Mini-ATX motherboards with a respective CPU. There is enough space for two standard drives. The maximum length of the discrete graphics to be used is unknown, however we can assume, that there will be no problem with choosing an optimal variant, taking into account the abundance of video adapters on the market.


This device will be available this quarter, though the price has not been voiced yet.

Scythe Mugen 5 Is a Powerful CPU Cooler Up to 160 mm High

A new sample – Scythe Mugen 5 (SCMG-5000) – has come into line with the famous Scythe Mugen series. Its asymmetric Tower construction enhances compatibility with long RAM modules. The dimensions of the unit are 154.5 х 130 х 110 mm, and the weight equals to 890 g, which widens the range of chassis able to hold it.



Scythe Mugen 5 possesses a nickel-plated copper base frame, six nickel-plated copper heat pipes, an aluminum heatsink and a 120 mm Scythe Kaze Flex 120 PWM axial flow fan. It is constructed with refined hydrodynamic bearings (Sealed Precision FDB) with the specified life span of 120,000 hours. The rotary speed of 300–1,200 rpm is able to create an airflow in the volume of 16.6–51.17 CFM (28.2–86.93 m3/hr). The static pressure is estimated to be 0.076–1.05 mm H2O, and the noise level lies in the range of 4–24.9 dBA. One can optionally install another analogous fan on the other side.
