FSP showed us a compact laptop charger. This device comes with high compatibility via multiple connectors and can change charging voltage via a programming button. This device comes with a high polished finish, you will notice fingerprints rather quickly on this one :)
Included is a manual to make sure you don't use this adapter the wrong way, or with incompatible hardware. From the specifications you can read that this device is able to feed up to 65W over a constant period, this means that you get lower output current whenever you increase output voltage. Laptops that have high input voltage mostly require less current, so it is nothing to worry about in real life.
The higher-end is being treated well; FSP is offering a 1250W Everest Pro Power Supply which comes with up to six 12V rails. The PSU is sold in Inox boxes and appeals very professional, but can you really pay a premium price for something that may never be of use?
The same PSU design is found over the entire high-end series, some added components will make the PSU stronger in longer periods of stress testing. Some showcased PSU's maybe never find their way to the retail market, FSP is still tweaking their product range. Xirex
Xirex, a new company started by former Aquacool people, is about to release a new low cost low noise liquid cooling solution. In fact, the unit itself is interesting since it will offer higher end performance at low noise compared to the boxed heatsinks, and price wise it could compete with extreme air coolers. We're still talking about €80 here, but how much exactly do you pay for a high-end heatsink plus 12mm fan? The entry-level H20 setup will come with a CPU water block, a pump, a 120mm radiator and low noise 120mm fan. The block design is pretty basic, and nothing too restrictive. Main focus is price, not performance.
The block comes with high compatibility, even the socket A is being supported. The base has an extruded center circle, this provides better contact with Intel CPU's using the heat spreader.
An overview of the starter kit, a 400ml/h pump, a copper water block and a 120mm radiator + fan:
Another centrifugal pump. This one is found in the mainstream products and can easily be opened for cleaning without having to worry to get it all together again.
On top of that pump you may find the Xirex water reservoir, excellent production quality:
Xirex technology used inside Rombus PC's. Rombus is the mother company of Xirex, located in Germany.
The product below might look familiar to you. The Xirex full cover water blocks are still finding their ways to the customers, but in the future we may find TwinTech3D video cards using this kind of Xirex water blocks:
The block itself is only few mm thick and uses micro channels to get the water flowing through the water block. The connectors are small for now, European sizes, but will be made compatible with the American style 1/2" tubes. The connectors can be configured like preferred; you may all ready have seen this on older DangerDen products.
