Motherboard MSI FM2-A85XA-G65A Review

Military-class motherboards elaborated by MSI have been always distinguished by the implementation of all high-end components within supply circuits, by extended overclocking facilities, and by corresponding exterior design. FM2-A85XA-G65A model corroborates such outstanding descriptions, being a worthy representative of products branded as ‘Military’. Moreover, the integration of high-quality and solid hardware elements enhances its overclocking potential that can’t but gladden PC enthusiasts.



Design and Layout


MSI FM2-A85XA-G65A is developed in ATX form-factor. It is notable by a fanciful, spacious layout, taking into account the full-fledged options integrated within a single chipset. Thus, there is no need in additional controllers. The distance between two graphics slots has been doubled to organize even the most powerful CrossFire configurations. The integrated heatsinks feature 31 mm height; one of them is located only 5 mm far from CPU socket. This implies …

PC Monitor LG 24EA53VQ Review

PC display makers fall over backward to win as many customers as possible. We may hear now and then about factory calibration, new case coating, optimized power consumption, and so on and so forth. Thus, each manufacturer increases the number of practically analogous products but with a slight distinction. The situation is different with LG that always tries to offer only innovative facilities. It remains only to look at its monitor model, codenamed LG 24EA53VQ, that is differentiated by a new panel type – AH-IPS – with 23.8 inch dimensions. Not 23 inch as standard IPS models have, not 24 inch as AMVA items have, but a totally unique panel! Certainly, this is not the only advantage of this display.



Design and Ergonomics


In regard to design, 24EA53VQ resembles its predecessors a lot, having a thin frame, classical look, and plastic coating. The display case is equipped with an external PSU, a dedicated VESA bracket, and W-LED that owns power-saving properties. Such …

The New Microchip PIC16F15386 Microcontroller Line Includes 13 Models

The Microchip Technology Co. has presented a new family of eight-bit PIC microcontrollers with core-independent peripherals. Among common features of these models one can highlight the presence of the internal frequency generator (32 MHz) and the memory boot partition security mechanism meant for protection from the faulty rerecording. Moreover, there is a secure device information area (DIA) storing the device unique identifier and calibration constants. The just-launched controllers are supported by the Microchip MPLAB Xpress with MPLAB Code Configurator (MCC) framework.



This line of products offers 13 samples possessing 2 Kbyte of RAM and up to 28 Kbyte of onboard flash. The specialties are incorporated into PDIP, SOIC, DFN, UDFN, UQFN and SSOP cases with an 8–48 pin count. The number of ADC and I/O channels has increased.


Presentation samples as well as stock-produced items are already available. Wholesale prices start with $0.33 per unit.
