In Win H-Fame Miniaturized to ITX Specifications

In Win unveiled the H-Frame Mini, an adaptation of the original for mini-ITX motherboards. The 263 x 122 x 273 mm case is little more than a stack of metal plates held together by bolts, which make room for the motherboard tray, and other components. Little is known about the H-Frame Mini, other than its included 120W power supply, color options, and USB 3.0-equipped front-panel.

The PC-Q27, the smallest of the lot, measures 200 x 321 x 240 mm (WxHxD), and packs just enough room for two 3.5-inch drive bays that can hold 2.5-inch drives, in addition to a 5.25-inch bay.

The Q30 measures 200 x 327 x 248 mm, lacks 5.25-inch bays, but features three 2.5-inch bays, and a 120 mm rear fan.

Thermalright Black Stealth Edition AXP-100 CPU Cooler Pictured

Thermalright is working on a limited-edition variant of the recently-launched AXP-100 CPU cooler featuring pitch-black aluminum fins, copper base, and heat pipes, in combination with the usual gold+black TY-140 fan. The AX-100 Black Stealth Edition retains all other specifications of the original, except its matte-black (possibly ceramic-coated?) aluminum fins, matte-black heat pipes, and black copper base. The C-type heatsink uses six 8 mm-thick heat pipes to convey heat to an aluminum fin stack that's arranged along the plane of the motherboard, which is ventilated by a 140 mm fan. The cooler supports all current CPU socket types, and is particularly recommended for mini-ITX builds. For a chance to win one of three of these, partake in Thermalright's new giveaway.
