Gigabyte unveiled the Aorus Model S, a compact desktop gaming PC with very powerful stuffing.At the heart of the system with a capacity of only 14 liters is a 12-core Intel Core i7-12700K and a GeForce RTX 3070 graphics gas pedal with 8 GB of memory.Image source: GigabyteThe main feature of this gaming PC is its cooling system.We haven't used liquid cooling for such a compact PC even though we thought it was a good idea.Instead, Gigabyte has developed a special air-cooling system that is literally the centerpiece of this gaming PC, to which the main elements are attached. The cooling system consists of a large central radiator and several heat pipes that connect to the video card and CPU radiators.At the bottom is a fan that draws in cool air from the two side grilles of the PC case.At the top is another fan that expels hot air.The size of the fans is 120 and 140 mm.The manufacturer claims that the noise level of the system does not exceed 40 dBA under intensive gaming loads, which is impressively low for such a compact computer. The Aorus Model S uses a Mini-ITX motherboard based on the Intel Z690 chipset.The system also offers 32GB of DDR5-4800 RAM and two 2TB PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSDs each. The Aorus Model S also comes equipped with a 2.5-gigabit network adapter, a wireless module with Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.2 support, a USB Type-C 3.2 Gen 2x2 (20Gbps) connector and a 750W power supply.It has an 80 Plus Gold certification. The system dimensions are 190 × 189 × 400 mm.The company does not say about the price and the date of availability of this gaming PC.
Gigabyte will release a Project Stealth kit that allows you to build a PC with absolutely all hidden cables
Gigabyte late last year introduced an interesting gaming PC concept in which all power wires of a particular component were located on the inside of the motherboard, not on the outside.This approach not only improves the aesthetics of the final assembly, but also improves air circulation inside the system.Today, the company said it has decided to commercialize the concept.Image source: GigabyteThe last time we checked, the drawback of such a concept is the need for specially designed computer cases, motherboards and graphics cards, with power connectors not in the usual places but hidden from the user.Despite the really interesting idea, without the support of third-party manufacturers of these components, it will not be possible to bring it to the general market as a new standard.On the other hand, Gigabyte could try to implement the idea itself.After all, the manufacturer itself produces motherboards, graphics cards and computer cases.It looks like the company decided to do just that.Gigabyte has announced a Project Stealth kit.It includes Z690 Aorus Elite Stealth motherboard, GeForce RTX 3070 Gaming OC Stealth graphics card, and Aorus C300G Stealth case. Gigabyte Z690 Aorus Elite Stealth Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3070 Gaming OC Stealth The motherboard has I/O connectors moved to the back side.Not only will this allow for easier connection of all wires to the board since there will be more space inside for work, but it will also improve air circulation inside the case and its cooling since there will be no obstacles in the way of air flow in the form of cables. The connectors for power cables of the graphics card have been moved to the bottom side of the gas pedal, directed deep into the case.This modernization will also help to cool the whole system and connect the power cable more conveniently. The Aorus C300G Stealth case has larger holes in the motherboard mounting area.All this is done to make it easier to connect all cables.Thanks to this solution, most of the cables will be fixed at the back side of the case to provide good cooling of the whole system. You can see the appearance of the final system assembly in the pictures below.They can be opened in full size. The Aorus Project Stealth kit will be available in two variations.The first will offer an Intel Core i7 processor, a 360mm HDD, 32GB of memory, a 2TB SSD and a 750W power supply.The second one has a Core i5 processor, air cooler CPU, 32 GB of RAM, 2 TB SSD and a 650 watt power supply.The manufacturer did not specify when these solutions will be available for sale.However, in the USA, the company decided to work with MAINGEAR, an OEM of gaming computers, which will assemble the gaming systems with the new components in mind.
