SilverStone releases the TD02-Slim and TD03-Slim

SilverStone is launching two SFF-oriented water cooling solutions, the TD02-Slim (240mm) and the TD03-Slim (120mm). By combining slim 22mm thick radiators with 120mm x 15mm fans, they are able to deliver a liquid cooling system that’s only 37mm thick for rad+fan. Presumably with the decreased radiator surface area and slim fans the performance won’t be quite as good as normal CLC’s, but the slim profile could make it feasible to fit water cooling in cases that weren’t suited to it before. I’m thinking this is aimed at slim cases like the ML07. The block appears to be identical to the TD02-Lite and …

SilverStone announces the Milo ML06-E

SilverStone has just announced an updated version of the Milo ML06 HTPC chassis. The main change is moving the SFX PSU to the other side of the Mini-ITX motherboard to allow for a dual-slot low-profile expansion card. There are a few versions of the GTX 750Ti available in that form factor but for now that’s about the most GPU power you can get in a low-profile card. But as AMD has shown with the Fury X, moving to HBM allows for much more compact PCB sizes so hopefully in the future we’ll see a proliferation of powerful low-profile video cards to get …

Samsung launches 2TB 850 Pro and 850 EVO SSDs

2TB consumer SSDs! Great news for SFF builds with limited drive mounts. No word on price but hopefully they won’t have a price premium for the density and will be in line with the price/gigabyte of the rest of the 850 series. Edit: PCPer has a review up already and MSRP is $1000 for the Pro and $800 for the EVO. If street price comes in at that or under it’s not too bad. Press release below: “Seoul, Korea July 6th – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., a market leader in advanced memory technology and an innovator in consumer electronics, today introduced the …
