Undervolted i9-9900K




A reader just sent us these pictures of a very cool build featuring the discontinued Nofan CR-95C Black Pearl and an undervolted i9-9900K. The original plan was to wait for the 35W i9-9900T but ultimately the i9-9900K was the best option for the experiment. At 90A the CPU consumes 67W max and can turbo up to 5GHz (the i9-9900T is locked at 4.4GHz).

✓ CPU: Intel i9-9900K with Nofan CR-95C (using Noctua's NT-H2)
✓ RAM: 64GB Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4-2666 DIMM CL16
✓ SSD: Samsung 970 Pro
✓ Motherboard: Asus Prime Z390-A
✓ Case: Thermaltake Core V41
✓ PSU: Seasonic Prime Fanless 600W

FSP releases slim 330W fanless external PSU



This looks perfect for high performance SFF systems, including NUC and mini desktops similar to Compulab's Airtop. At 200 x 27 x 100mm the adapter is on the large side, though. It operates with a universal input range of 90-264VAC. Available in two flavors, 19.5V (FSP330-AJAN3) and 24V (FSP330-AAAN3) it is designed with reliability in mind (MTBF of 300,000 hours at 25℃).

"In order to satisfy the equipment requirements for the AIoT field, FSP has broken through the R&D bottleneck and released a slim 330W high wattage fanless external power supply. This slim design model has a height of only 27mm and allows users to save equipment space. Enclosure design reduces noise and is dust-proof."
