Calyos Showcases Its NSG S0 Phase Change Cooling Chassis at Computex 2017

Remember that Kickstarted case from Calyos, which promises to be the ending of spinning fans on your rig? Calyos is showcasing it at this year's Computex.

The production chassis is designed by France's modding duo WaterMod, which improved upon the original open-frame concept design both in terms of performance and aesthetics. The usage of Phase Change cooling through two cooling blocks - one for the GPU, another for the CPU) makes away with fans, pumps, water, and any other assorted cooling techniques that involve calling upon the decibel gods.

EVGA X299 FTW and X299 Micro Motherboards Detailed

EVGA at its Computex 2017 booth showed off its premium socket LGA2066 motherboard, the X299 FTW. The company also unveiled its micro-ATX X299 Micro. Built in the ATX form-factor, the X299 FTW is positioned below the X299 DARK, and features a clean layout with conveniently located connectors. It draws power from a pair of 8-pin EPS connectors besides an optional 6-pin PCIe, and the 24-pin ATX. The CPU socket is flanked by eight DDR4 DIMM slots, and four PCI-Express 3.0 x16 slots. An open-ended x4 and another x1 make for the rest of its expansion.

The X299 FTW is characterized by a groovy RGB LED lighting system that covers not just the PCH heatsink, but also the CPU VRM heatsink, and the I/O shroud, which runs the entire length of the motherboard. Storage connectivity includes two 32 Gb/s M.2 slots (a 110 mm and an 80 mm, each); two 32 Gb/s U.2 ports, and eight SATA 6 Gb/s ports. Other connectivity includes two USB 3.1 ports (including a type-C port), eight USB 3.0 ports, high-grade onboard audio with Realtek ALC1220 codec; and two GbE network interfaces.

QNAP Unveils World's First Ryzen-based NAS at Computex 2017

Amidst the cutting-edge innovations in NAS, networking, and IoT presented by QNAP Systems, Inc. at COMPUTEX 2017, the announcement of the world's first AMD Ryzen-based NAS took center stage and underlined QNAP's commitment to push the boundaries of NAS performance and functionality.

The new TS-x77 series leverages the incredible power of Ryzen, featuring processors with up to 8-cores/16-threads with Turbo Core up to 3.7 GHz to greatly boost virtualization performance. The TS-x77 is designed as a high-performance, highly-capable tiered storage geared for I/O intensive and virtualization applications, and also supports AMD Radeon and NVIDIA graphics cards to satisfy resource-demanding video editing and playback.

G.Skill Takes Trident Z Series Beyond the DDR4-4000 MHz Mark

A brief stroll through G.Skill Computex 2017 booth showed us the company's latest Trident Z series DDR4 memory kits that come with clock speeds way beyond the DDR4-4000 mark. Achieving DDR4-4000 with a 16 GB-dense module is no small feat, and G.Skill has new 2x 16 GB (32 GB) DDR4-4000 Trident Z RGB series memory kits. In the wake of the new LGA2066 platform, one can expect 4x 16 GB kits, too. These modules do DDR4-4000 with timings of 17-17-18-38 CR2T. G.Skill has three higher clock speeds targeted with its lineup, DDR4-4200, DDR4-4400, DDR4-4800, though using 8 GB modules.

The Trident Z RGB DDR4-4200 runs at 19-21-21-41, and comes in dual-channel 16 GB (2x 8 GB), and quad-channel 32 GB (4x 8 GB) and 64 GB (8x 8 GB) kits. Next up, is the Trident Z RGB DDR4-4400, with timings of 19-19-19-39, and available in the same capacities. A step higher is the DDR4-4800 Kit. This kit has the same timings as the DDR4-4400 kit, with 19-19-19-39. These four kits require Intel machines with XMP 2.0 to run at their advertised speeds.

DeepCool Showcases Four PC Cases on Computex 2017

DeepCool took to Computex 2017 with an increased offering of their PC cases. The DUKASE Liquid integrates a 240 mm radiator in its design, and includes two flow rotors. A full-sized transparent side-window ensures your case's innards (including the DUKASE Liquid's LED lighting) can be showcased for prying eyes, while an enclosed PSU space makes sure to keep most of those unsightly cables out of the field of view. The DUKASE Liquid also includes a fan controller, in the form of a dial, which can control up to three fans at the same time. It will be available for $189.99 this month.

Colorful Showcases Two GTX 1080 Ti Graphics Cards

At Computex 2017, Colorful showcased another two graphics cards based on NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics. First up, we have the iGame GTX 1080 Ti Kudan, a black and gold, triple-fan, triple-slot graphics card, and it would appear it also includes fittings for a watercooling solution. The golden gears and clockwork-reminiscent design may seem a little gaudy, but I actually like it, in a steampunk kind of way. The card features a status monitor (probably to show temperature and clock states), features a 16+2 phases power design, and colorful is boasting of tantalum capacitors. Its stock clock is at 1480 MHz base, while the memory speed seems to remain at stock. The card features a one-key overclock function, though how big an overclock this enables currently stands as "TBD". Connectors-wise, the card comes with 2x DisplayPort, 2x HDMI, and 1x DVI-D.

AMD EPYC Launch Date Revealed

At its Computex 2017 event, AMD announced the market availability of EPYC enterprise processors based on the "Zen" architecture. The chips will be available from June 20, 2017. The company didn't get into the specifics, however we know that EPYC consists of chips with up to 32 cores, up to 64 threads, up to 32 MB of L3 cache, and a vast 112-lane PCIe root complex. There could be 1P and 2P models.

be quiet! Shadow Rock Slim, Shadow Rock TF2, Silent Loop Coolers Pictured

be quiet! is at it again this Computex, showing off a myriad for new products which look to fill the company's line-up with some extra cooling capabilities. The Shadow Rock Slim stands as a new, slim tower cooler, which should help in cramped environments where maintaining availability of that pesky leftmost RAM slot can be a problem (another solution might be just cutting the leftmost RAM slot entirely!)

In addition, the company also showcased the Shadow Rock TF2, another compact cooling solution - this time on the Z axis. It can dissipate up to 160 W, features five copper heatpipes and has an operating noise of up to 24.4 dbA, which isn't all too shabby. But if you are looking for a new cooling solution for your GPU (maybe your Founder's Edition NVIDIA graphics card, why not) be quiet! has you covered with their new Silent Loop. This is an AIO which looks to be both performant and expensive, since its radiator is being touted as a full copper solution. The Silent Loop features three Silent Wing 2 PWM controlled fans. The pump has some tricks up its sleeve as well, being a decoupled, reverse-flow solution which be quiet! says is quieter, smoother and less prone to vibrations than more conventional pump designs.

MSI Unleashes High-End X299 Motherboards at Computex 2017

MSI is proud to unleash a complete line-up of next generation high-end X299 motherboards during COMPUTEX 2017. With the inclusion of the most popular models from MSI's Enthusiast, Performance and Arsenal GAMING Series there is a gaming motherboard available for any type of gamer, PC enthusiast, or case modder. Also content creators and professionals have a great, feature packed option ready to assist them with to the addition of the MSI X299 SLI PLUS motherboard.

Sapphire to Launch External Graphics Enclosure - Powered by Thunderbolt 3

At its Computex 2017 showcase, Sapphire showcased (ahem) an upcoming e-GFX enclosure. The unit delivers its display signal through a Thunderbolt 3 port, which is being hailed as "The USB-C that does it all", with up to 40 Gb/s connections, dual 4K @ 60Hz support, charging capabilities, and support for the USB and DisplayPort interfaces.

The unit makes use of what appears to be a SFF PSU (it isn't clear whether or not a PSU comes bundled with the chassis), and space for a dual-slot high performance graphics card. The side of the enclosure presents an airflow-enabling grill, so that your graphics card can pull in fresh air from the exterior. There's also what seems to be an Ethernet port and 2x USB 3.0 ports, which means this enclosure can be used as a hub, or as an extra charger for your other pieces of tech. Aesthetics-wise, this unit uses the tried and true black and white contrast, with a black design language on the front and back, and a smooth white contour on the top and sides of the enclosure. I enjoy the understated design here, with no extremely hard and "gaming" screaming angles, and the neutral color scheme and LED design doesn't look half bad. It remains to be seen whether that blue LED lighting is too strong so as to be distracting, but if it's not, it stands as a good complement to the overall design. Expect this unit to be released sooner rather than later, though no details on pricing or specifications were at hand.
