Motherboard Biostar A55MD2 Review

Good overclocking facilities are what the majority of customers look for in contemporary motherboards. In this light, the manufacturers establish various price ranges, depending on the product’s overclocking potential. As usual, boards from budgetary lines cannot boast such potential, though there are some exclusions. Biostar A55MD2 is considered to be one of the cheapest solutions for FM2 platforms. Still, its layout marvels by the availability of CPU boost facilities, as well as gigabit network interface.



Design and Layout


Motherboard Biostar A55MD2 distinguishes itself by rather compact dimensions: 226x178 mm (uATX form-factor). The model accommodates an amplifying board that is made of a metallic fusible element. The chipset is cooled down by a small-sized aluminum heatsink, while field transistors are avoid of any cooler. This might signify about some inconsideration pertained to thermal environment. Power supply activity is realized by means of 24-contact and …

Scythe Showcases Asymmetric Byakko CPU Cooler

Scythe, a well-known Japanese manufacturer of cooling solutions, is about to release an uncommon CPU cooler. Entitled Byakko, the Tower model features an asymmetric design: an aluminum heatsink is superseded backwards against the nickel-plated base; such framework ensures an ideal compatibility of the cooler with high RAM modules. Moreover, the item is only 130-mm high, so it can fit any PC case.



Scythe Byakko is reconcilable with the majority of modern platforms, including Intel Socket LGA 1366/115x/775 & AMD Socket FM1/FM2/FM2+/aM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+. The cooler accommodates three nickel-plated 6-mm heat pipes, replenished by a single 92-mm fan. The Scythe Slip Stream 92 PWM is based on a sleeve bearing. Thanks to the PWM support, the fan is able to rotate within 300-2300 RPM range. Therewith, the maximal noise level does not surpass the margin of 28.26 dBA (the minimal index is 7.2 dBA).


The model is able to produce 6.70-46.55 CFM airflow, depending on the rotational speed. …

Radeon RX 560 Aero ITX 2G OC and Radeon RX 560 Aero ITX 4G OC are Based on Short PC-Boards and Fit for Compact Cases

Recently the MSI Company has added two new graphics cards to its products range. These are the Radeon RX 560 Aero ITX 2G OC and the Radeon RX 560 Aero ITX 4G OC models. Having much in common, they differ in the memory volume only.



The MSI cards GPU features the 1,295 MHz boost clock, which is 20 MHz higher comparing to the recommended value. Memory operates at the standard 7,000 MHz frequency.


We should highlight, though, that MSI samples are constructed on the base of short printed-circuit boards of 155 mm length, which allow to install them into compact PC cases. The cooling system is not very complicated. It consists of a modest-sized cooler with an aluminium heatsink and a single fan. MSI specialties do not require additional power supply.


Radeon RX 560 Aero ITX 2G OC and the Radeon RX 560 Aero ITX 4G OC have a default interfaces set, represented by such ports as DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort.
