It features a top-placed I/O panel with two USB 3.0 and audio ports, five 5.25-inch external drive bays, one 3.5-inch external drive bay, four 3.5-inch internal drive bays, a side panel window, eight expansion slots and has two fans. The PS06 will ship in Japan on May 13th for 11,980 Yen (or about $145). No word on when it will show up elsewhere.
I am starting more and more to appreciate small form factor computers. Not only do they take less space, but they are often quieter as well. SilverStone has unveiled a new PC case called the Sugo SG07 that is designed for Mini-ITX mainboards.
The case ships with a 600W PSU that is 80 Plus Bronze certified and has a single 12V rail. The case has a 180mm fan, which is larger than the mainboard the case is designed for.
I have a SSD that has been sitting around my office for months now that I haven’t used. I know that it would make my machine faster, but I don’t want to have to mess with moving all my software and installing an OS on the drive.
SilverStone has a new product called the HDDBOOST that claims to be able to improve the performance of a HDD by up to 70% by combining it with an SSD. The HDDBOOST installs into an internal drive bay and connects to a SSD and the HDD already in your system.
I have covered a myriad of gaming mice here over the months and one thing most all gaming mice have in common is that they are all wired. Gamers don’t really want wireless products because of the lag they introduce. A new gaming mouse from a name that computer enthusiasts will probably recognize is now available.
The mouse is called the Silverstone Raven. Raven has adjustable sensitivity from 400 to 3200 DPI and connects to the PC via a USB cord. Adjustments to sensitivity are made with the rotating thumb button on the side. 3200 DPI isn’t as high a resolution you can find in gaming mice, the Razer Lachesis will do 4000 DPI, but 3200 is enough for most gamers.
