One part of the industry that requires millimeter precision is building systems for small form factor designs – being able to take advantage of every small bit of volume inside a chassis but also maximize performance yet minimize noise is a critical element to the success of these systems. ID-Cooling has thrown another hat into the ring when it comes to cooling the processor, something that can be a tough job in such an enclosed space. The new IS-47K is designed with a maximum height of 47mm, and is apparently rated for CPUs up to 130 W. Featuring six copper heatpipes and a 92mm PWM fan measuring 15mm thick, the IS-47K situates the fan in between the copper contact plate of the cooler and the...

Mini-PCs are currently one of the fastest growing desktop market segments, alongside all-in-ones and other small form factor (SFF) variants. While on the full desktop side most of...12 by Ian Cutress on 6/2/2014
So far there have been only a few ways to get hold of an Iris Pro 5200 enabled machine. The first CPUs with these processors were in laptops, until...24 by Ian Cutress on 3/10/2014
If you've been following along for a while, it should be pretty clear that around here, we're fans of doing a little computing. Awkward turns of phrase notwithstanding, we...42 by Dustin Sklavos on 9/29/2011
We're taking our second excursion into enterprise-class desktop territory with the kind of machine that should be of interest both to IT management and enthusiasts alike: HP's Z210 SFF...26 by Dustin Sklavos on 8/29/2011
