Polish PC case maker SilentiumPC shows off its new Stella HP RGB LED fans. The company offers a regular version as well as a variant with addressable LEDs. Both editions are available in 120mm and 140mm sizes.

Pricing for the Stella HP RGB 120 PWM, Stella HP RGB 140 PWM, Stella HP ARGB 120 PWM, and Stella HP ARGB 140 PWM is 12EUR, 15EUR, 15EUR, and 18EUR, respectively.

SilentiumPC Stella HP ARGB PWM
The European PC case and cooling manufacturer SilentiumPC, adds the new Stella HP fan series both as an RGB-enabled and ARGB-enabled product line to its portfolio. The new lines are based on the same PWM-enabled fan, which feature the HBS (Hydraulic) bearing, excellent efficiency, high static pressure and built-in anti-vibration rubber grommets. The Stella HP RGB as well as the Stella HP ARGB series are available in the mainstream fan sizes 120 mm and 140 mm.

Stella HP ARGB PWM
With the Stella HP ARGB, SilentiumPC is able to deliver the ultimate RGB experience for modern PC systems by utilizing 9 bright, addressable RGB LEDs in the translucent fan rotor with nine specially profiled blades. Full sync with components such as motherboard, RAM or even chassis is possible thanks to the fact that the SilentiumPC Stella HP ARGB fans are equipped with a standardized 3-pin ARGB connector, which is compatible with the majority of ARGB motherboards' sockets.

Stella HP RGB PWM
The Stella HP RGB fan series uses 9 bright RGB LEDs, located around the fan rotor, in order to provide stunning RGB lighting in virtually any color, which can be combined with various effects. Users are able to sync the color and apply effects, by simply connecting the fan to the standardized 4-pin RGB connector of RGB-enabled motherboards. Further fine-tuning and adjustments can be made using the motherboard RGB controller software, such as ASRock™ RGB LED, Asus™ Aura, EVGA™ RGB or MSI™ Mystic Light.

In addition to that, it is possible to control the lighting using the separately available SilentiumPC Nano RGB Controller, Aurora Ii RGB-302 Controller or the Aurora Sync as well as Aurora Sync PRO controllers, which are pre-installed in selected Armis TG RGB PC cases.

Both the Stella HP ARGB and the Stella HP RGB fan series is available in the sizes 120 mm and 140 mm. The fans are designed with the focus on efficiency and high static pressure, which makes them a great choice not only for computer cases, but also for radiators of liquid cooling kits (e.g. AiO) with densely packed fins and regular air-coolers, where they will illuminate any tastefully composed computer build. Each of the Stella HP RGB and ARGB PWM fans is equipped with a PWM and (A)RGB splitter, located at the end of the cables. It allows for linking fans with each other and synchronization of their current parameters, such as speed and color. All of the Stella HP fans support PWM control, allowing convenient and automated control of fan speed, depending on the temperature of the CPU. A properly set and configured fan speed curve in the motherboard’s UEFI will provide a highly satisfying performance and noise level for every user. The 140 mm models are operating in the fan speed range between 800 and 1.800 RPM whereas the 120 mm models rotate at speeds from 800 to 2.300 RPM.

The first build of Fallout Miami hit the web! As the name suggests, this fan-made Fallout mod is set in Miami. You can download it over here. At the moment, there's little to do with exception of enjoying the scenery. Over time, NPCs, enemies and quests will be added to the mod.
This early version of Fallout Miami is the first worldspace I made when I started this project. It contains built parts of the old explorable worldspace which won't be present in the final version of the Fallout Miami, no NPCs or enemy encounters, no quests. But, it will be updated over time with NPCs and new areas


Next there's also a video of a fancy Minecraft mod that features Stratum 2048x POM/PBR | Continuum Shader - Realistic Graphics - Ray Tracing - 4K. Pretty sweet graphics!

Wondering where the release previews of Microsoft's Windows 10 19H2 operating system are? The software giant promised builds would hit the web this Spring but that season is now over and there's still no Windows 10 19H2. In response to tweets, Microsoft's Brandon LeBlanc acknowledged that 19H2 is running late and that Microsoft is not operating against a deadline.

As The Register reports, 19H2 will receive 30 months of support, versus 18 months of support for the current version.
The problem, as ever, was this was 20H1 and a preview of the next release of Windows 10, 19H2 has yet to be emitted from the bowels of Redmond. And things are getting a bit tight – based on past form, we would expect a release in October. So getting a preview is becoming critical.

You'd be forgiven for saying "meh" when it comes to 19H2. Enterprises, however, are most definitely interested. The September (or October) updates get 30 months of support. March (or April, or maybe May now) updates only get 18 months.

WCCF Tech has an update about NVIDIA's launch schedule for the GeForce RTX 20 SUPER video card series. The site claims NVIDIA delayed the launch from June 21 and that the planned announcement day is currently set for July 2. This will be a paperlaunch event though, actual availability isn't slated until July 9 (RTX 2060 SUPER and RTX 2070 SUPER) and July 23 (RTX 2080 SUPER). As always, take this information with a grain of salt as we can't verify the accuracy and plans can often change.
These are the planned dates so far. It is still possible that NVIDIA sees this and decided to move them around just to discredit the leak scene, but considering these dates have already been seeded to journalists, once the NDA lifts, they will be able to confirm that these were indeed the original dates they were told:

  • July 2: Planned announcement day for all graphics cards (RTX 2060 SUPER, RTX 2070 SUPER, RTX 2080 SUPER). AKA soft launch.
  • July 9: GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER and GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER arrive on shelves.
  • July 23: GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER planned to hit the shelves. [Tentative]

    AMD logo
    Earlier this month AMD said it would not sell more x86 IP to Chinese firms, including the THATIC joint-venture it has with China-based chip development firms. Now news hit the wire that the United States Department of Commerce will add THATIC to the entity list, alleging that that Sugon, which has a stake in THATIC, is "acting contrary to the national security or foreign policy interests of the United States." There are also some broader implications, as Intel and NVIDIA are no longer allowed to ship chips to Sugon.
    The action would cut off the joint venture's access to US technology, and while the report does not specify a date for the action to go into effect, it comes a week before President Trump's scheduled trade talks with China President Xi Jinping at the G20 summit as the two countries remain embroiled in a trade war.

    The ruling also has an impact on Intel and Nvidia, as Sugon has developed 10 of China's 20 fastest supercomputers, and continues to develop more based on AMD, Nvidia, and Intel components. Given the company's deep involvement in developing supercomputers for China, it could also put a large dent in the country's exascale ambitions.

    Some more details emerged about the 0-day vulnerability in Firefox that got plugged yesterday. ARS Technica writes cybercriminals exploited the hole to try to steal cryptocurrency from Coinbase employees. Coinbase managed to thwart the attack but claims they're not the only crypto organisation that got targeted in this campaign. Interestingly, the ARS article indicates the attacks focused on the Mac platform, there's no evidence at this point that this attack was carried out against Windows users too.
    On Thursday, macOS security expert Patrick Wardle published an analysis of Mac malware that came from someone who claimed it infected his fully up-to-date Mac through a zero-day vulnerability in Firefox. The person claimed to have been "involved with a cryptocurrency exchange until fairly recently." The hash of the malware matched one of the hashes provided by Martin.

    Not a whole lot of information about this as DigiTimes now paywalls its news articles, but it appears Intel is going to cut the price of its desktop processors.

    The site hear from sources at motherboard makers that Intel is going to cut the prices of it 8th Gen and 9th Gen desktop processors by 10 to 15 percent.

    It seems the company is concerned about the entry of AMD's Zen 2-based Ryzen 3000 series and decided that a preemptive price cut was the best way to act.

    Foxconn logo
    Foxconn founder and CEO Terry Gou announced at the electronics manufacturing giant's annual general meeting that he will step down. After running the company for 45 years, Gou has set his aim on running for president of Taiwan. Gou will remain Foxconn's largest shareholder and will remain on the company's board.

    He will run for the nomination of the Kuomintang, Taiwan's opposition party. Gou will be replaced by Young Liu, the head of the Foxconn semiconductor unit.
    Foxconn (one of Apple’s biggest suppliers) is China’s largest private employer and the Kuomintang supports a closer relationship with the Chinese government, despite its stance that Taiwan is a rogue province. Gou’s ties to the country will be scrutinized during the campaign as he opposes Tsai and the DPP, advocates of Taiwan’s sovereignty. The issue is especially fraught after the recent large-scale demonstrations in Hong Kong against a bill that would have allowed extradition to China.
