Zalman Introduces Highly Efficient FX70 Passive Cooler

Zalman, a renowned South Korean designer of various hardware solutions, has recently introduced its latest CPU passive cooler, entitled FX70. The new-entry features 110x140x158 mm dimensions and comes without any fans. However, if there is a need to cool down CPUs with the TDP level higher than 80 W, the customer is free to enhance the facilities by adding two 120 mm fans. The latter are fixed to the heatsink by means of four brackets.



Zalman FX70 is an optimal choice for the following platforms: Intel LGA 2011/1366/115x/775 and AMD FM2/FM1/AM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+. This cooler fits in any mid-tower ATX and larger PC chassis. The cooler’s framework consists of a copper base, pierced by six nickel-plated heatpipes, and of fifteen heatsink plates with an offbeat design, codenamed Twist; they are called to dramatically improve the process of heat management.


Fanless framework is regarded to be an advantage due to three reasons. First of all, pure heatsink provides absolutely no …

SilverStone Debuts with SST-ST30SF Power Supply

SilverStone Technology has recently introduced its newest SFX power supply unit. Codenamed SST-ST30SF, it features 125x100x63.5 mm dimensions and weighs 800 g only. The unit is estimated for 300 W power and is capable to demonstrate more than 81% efficiency in 230 V networks. High efficiency level allowed the model to gain 80Plus Bronze certificate.



The most uncommon feature ascribed to SST-ST30SF is that it can operate in passive mode if thermal conditions allow. The unit is equipped with a fan of 80 mm dimensional type; it starts rotating only when the surrounding temperature reaches 55 degrees. This promotes for a considerable power reduction and practically silent work when the fan gets disabled. An average noise level on active operation makes up 18 dB.


SilverStone furnishes the new entry with a single +12V rail, estimated for 22 A current. In its turn, +3.3V rail is estimated for 21 A current, while +5V rail – for 20 A current. It should be noted that this unit …
