ASUS ROG Strix X570-I Gaming Motherboard Starts Selling

ASUS started selling its premium Mini-ITX motherboard based on the AMD X570 chipset, the Republic of Gamers (ROG) Strix X570-I Gaming. The board was announced as part of ASUS' X570 motherboard lineup back in July, but is only now reaching selves, with an MSRP of USD $220. The board features an elaborate thermal solution that cools the CPU VRM, the fiesty X570 chipset, and an M.2-2280 SSD over a network of interconnected heatsinks that are ventilated by two 30 mm fans.

Silverstone Cases on Display at CES 2019 Including an All New Raven Prototype

During our visit with Silverstone, we had the opportunity to check out their new case lineup which consists of numerous new designs including an all-new Raven prototype. Keeping the unique internal layout established by the previous generations alive, the new Raven has the motherboard I/O pointed towards the top with two 180 mm air penetrator fans located at the bottom operating as intakes with a single 120 mm fan at the top as an exhaust. The design makes use of the simple concept that heat rises to great effect. Drive space is limited to a single 3.5" or 2x 2.5" drives, meaning as of now builders eyeing this new design will want to stock up on M.2 drives. While we don't have official specifications in regards to radiator support, we can say there is plenty of room to set up a water cooling loop multiple mounting points provided near the back and sides of the chassis.

Moving on the side panels are both tempered glass which gives the case a uniform look, however, thanks to that, you can forget about hiding your wire mess behind a solid back panel. Instead, the Raven Prototype will be better suited for those who meticulously route their cables keeping things exceptionally neat and tidy. As for the front panel I/O, it is located on the top left above the side panel and consists of 2x USB 3.0 ports and the usual microphone and headphone jacks. In general, the angular design of the previous Raven cases remains but has been toned down just a bit, giving this latest iteration a sleeker, stealthier appearance.

MonsterLabo "The First" Passive Cooling Case Appears at CES With Multiple System Configurations

While we have covered the MonsterLabo "The First" case earlier this year with it appearing at Computex 2018 and again with further details later, it was also on the showroom floor at CES, meaning we were able to get a closer look. While the design promises passive cooling, the system that was opened for viewing on the showroom floor was equipped with a single 140 mm Noctua fan (can't-miss that color scheme). Which means we can't consider it a passive cooling case as shown. However, it is likely that with lower TDP parts it is entirely possible. Even so, with the use of a single low noise 140 mm fan it handled the configured systems just fine. One system used an Intel Core i5-8600K and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (Far West mod), while another (white) system featured an Intel Core i5-8500 and a GeForce RTX 2070.

Update: We have some exclusive images of the case in the hot Nevadan desert, managing to still look cool.

ECS Releases the H310XH5-TI Mini-ITX Motherboard for Coffee Lake-S

ECS has released a brand new Mini-ITX motherboard that supports 8th Gen Intel CPUs in the i3/i5/i7, Pentium and Celeron segments in the form of the H310XH5-TI. The motherboard is based on Intel's H310 chipset. Since there's no need for a souped-up VRM solution on this motherboard, there's a 4+1 phase affair present. There are 2x SO-DIMM slots with support for up to 32 GB of DDR4-2667 memory, 1x M.2-2280 slot for PCIe/SATA SSDs, 2x SATA 6 Gbps connectors, and 1x M.2 slot for a Wi-Fi/BT add-in card.

I/O wise, there are 1x GbE port (Realtek 8111H), 1x HDMI 1.4 output, 1x HDMI 1.4 input, 4x USB 3.0 Type-A connectors (two internal and two external), 2x USB 2.0 Type-A ports, and 2x audio jacks. Audio is powered by Realtek's ALC662 codec and a six-channel DAC. There's also a 19VDC input for power delivery straight to the motherboard, and numerous internal headers for expansion, such as a card reader header, a webcam header, a touch board header, a camera header, and an IR sensor header, which suggest a highly-integrated system that can be more than just a small PC.

GIGABYTE to Introduce Mini-ITX GeForce RTX 2070 Graphics Card

Following MSI, which has already introduced its 2070 Aero Mini-ITX graphics card, GIGABYTE is looking to be the next vendor to introduce such a form-factor graphics card.
