MSI Introduces OC Certified mainboards

Changes the overclocking game MSI, the most popular overclocking brand is exited to introduce an all-new standard for overclocking stability. MSI’s OC Certified standard is the new baseline for overclocking mainboards. the new MSI Z77 MPOWER, which is OC Certified, is submitted to a Military grade stress-test for overclocking. Where other motherboard manufacturers only test for a limited duration, every MSI Z77 MPOWER is submitted to a 24 hour OC stress-test. Only mainboards surviving 24 hours of Prime95 while heavily overclocked. The conditions of the OC Certified test are rigorous high temperature, no airflow testing OC Certified, the new standard OC Certified is MSI’s OC testing procedure where each Z77 MPOWER mainboard tested for stability with a 24-hour Prime95 stress test. OC Certified test a mainboard in three key areas: OC Performance Stable Power PWM cooling OC Performance means all OC Certified tests are run at a minimum of 4.6 GHz CPU speed. Stable Power is tested by running Prime95 for 24-hours in these conditions. The PWM cooling test ensures that, even without airflow in a high-temperature room (30°C) without airflow from a CPU cooler.. Military Class testing OC Certified is a major extension of MSI’s Military Class III certification. Military Class III certified mainboards already have their component quality tested in rigourous tests to ensure all-round stability. OC Certified puts these components to the ultimate test When an MSI Z77 MPO...



Lian Li Announces the PC-V650 ATX Chassis with Side Mounted Power Supply Design

Fit in Your Hardware Without the Extra Height 7 August 2012, Keelung, Taiwan – Lian-Li Industrial Co. Ltd, today announces an aluminum ATX supported chassis with a side mounted power supply design – PC-V650. With the power supply to be mounted on its side, the PC-V650 is shorter than most ATX chassis while still having room to install the hardware that DIY builders desire. Instead of sitting underneath the expansion slots, a power supply up 230mm (9.0”) in length can be placed sideways parallel to the expansions slots, adding to the width of the case. With this design the 360mm (14.1”) tall and 251mm (9.8”) wide PC-V650 does not need the extra height to fit DIY builder’s preferred components. Even though the PC-V650 is shorter, up to seven 3.5” hard drives (two hot-swappable) and four 2.5” hard drives can be installed. The bottom 3.5” HDD cage, containing four 3.5” slots, is easily removed allowing expansion cards up to 370mm (14.5”) in length. Above the hard drive cages, there is space for one 5.25” drive. The PC-V650 does not sacrifice size for cooling ability. Two removable 140mm fans behind the front panel blow cool air directly on the hard drive cages or expansion cards if bottom cage is removed. A 140mm fan on the top and a 120mm fan in the rear of the chassis keep cool air circulating throughout the case by pulling hot air out of the chassis. For overclockers, CPU coolers up to 120mm (4.7”) fit comfortably. The PC-V650 also supports...
