G.Skill Announces Phoenix EVO SATA II SSD Based on 2xnm NAND Flash

Cubitek's M4 and M4 Silencer PC Chassis Now Available

Cubitek today released their new mid-tower M4 and M4 Silencer computer chassis. Both the M4 and M4 Silencer come with features like a front-panel CD/DVD storage compartment and a top-panel mini-USB cable (plus a micro-USB adapter) to connect devices like mobile phones and cameras. The all-black powder-coating finish coupled with the unique front-panel design give Cubitek's M4 and M4 Silencer the look and feel of quality.

Four 5.25-inch ODD mounts are located directly behind a front-panel mesh that allows for air to flow into the case. For convenience, ODD's are installed without any tools or even detaching the front panel. Cubitek has also included a 5.25"-to-3.5" converter and an internal 2.5-inch HDD mount. Five 3.5-inch HDD internal mounts are also toolless, as well as seven PCI slots that can house graphics cards as long as 400 mm. Users can choose to mount ATX, µATX, or Mini-ITX motherboards coupled with CPU coolers as high as 150 mm. The chassis also has a 120 mm silent fan on the backpanel.

Unlike M4, M4 Silencer has both side panels as well as the top one lined with foam to further reduce noise. It also features one extra 120 mm intake fan at the front panel. Instead of foam, the side panel of M4 has venting holes to increase airflow (and to show off the all-black interior).

Both M4 and M4 Silencer have two rubber-lined holes on the backpanel to for liquid cooling systems. Alongside the mini-USB cable on the top panel, these cases come with two USB 2.0 ports and audio ports. Both M4 and M4 Silencer are sized 202 x 470 x 485 mm (W, H, D).

G.Skill Announces Phoenix EVO SATA II SSD Based on 2xnm NAND Flash

G.Skill International today announced its new Phoenix EVO SSD based on the SandForce SF-1222 controller and 2xnm NAND flash chips. The 115GB Phoenix EVO drive offers the rated read/write speed of 280/270 MB/s and will be available in early April.

Although the 2xnm-based Phoenix EVO is a bit slower than G.Skill's current 3xnm-based Phoenix Pro, it should also be cheaper. G.Skill Phoenix EVO SSD comes with a 3-year warranty.
