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, …

Bending Chassis PC-Q30 from Lian Li to Amaze all Customers

Lian Li, a famous Taiwanese PC chassis designer, unveils its new, extraordinary mini-tower chassis, codenamed PC-Q30. Its extraordinary nature is manifested in an atypical framework: a bending tower with a large transparent window in the front. This model features 368x284x421 mm dimensions and is earmarked specifically for mini-ITX and mini-DTX motherboards.



Lian Li promises to start the sales in June for a recommended price of about $150. In order to serve the needs of various customer audiences, the manufacturer will offer the case in two color variations: silver and black.


PC chassis from Lian Li is ready to accommodate four hard drives and/or solid-state drives of 2.5-inch form-factor, a couple of PCI/PCI Express graphics adapters of up to 200 mm in length, a low-rise CPU cooler of up to 130 mm, and a power supply unit of SFX form-factor (up to 125 mm in length). The latter is located on rubber holdups in the bottom part of the case. Unfortunately, there are no …

EKWB Launches a New Water Block for GV-N680SO-2GD

Early August of 2012 was marked for Gigabyte by the release of its one more graphics card, codenamed GeForce GTX 680 SOC (GV-N680SO-2GD). This card can boast the availability of high factory frequencies and quite mighty cooling system. The nominal frequencies have been heightened to 1137MHz, 1202MHz, and 6200MHz for memory. Such outstanding characteristics required the integration of a high-quality and high-performance cooling system which consisted of five(!) fans. This made the card rather voluminous, cumbersome and noisy. That was when EKWB decided to design a dedicated water block to be employed with this remarkable graphics adapter.



Water block EK-FC 680 GTX SOC is housed on a copper base, good-quality acetal cover, and rubber shims as a compressor. The model is delivered with pre-installed fixing stands to facilitate the installation. It should be noted that this water block entirely covers the frontal part of the graphics card, along with the adjacent RAM modules and …
