Description

This 8th Generation Fanless PC has moved fanless performance into new territory. The 6-core i5 CPU has performance levels higher than our previous i7 product, and this is achieved using less power and generating less heat.

This model is the most feature packed mini PC on the market. As well as the ultra fast standard PCIe SSD, it has space for 2 extra SSDs or HDDs, or one SSD/HDD and an Optical Drive. With Thunderbolt 3 and HDMI 2.0 its uses are almost unlimited. Using a Thunderbolt to HDMI adaptor you can have a multi-monitor setup with 3 displays.

The new Z390 Chipset enables 4 of the 6 USB3.1 Ports to be "Gen 2" with 10Gbps speed.

The product uses a copper block on the CPU that connects to the external cooling fins using heat pipes. The motherboard's chipset is also cooled with a heatpipe. This design enables the product to not need air vents and enables it to be used in dusty/dirty environments. Because there are no moving parts and no air sucked into the case the product has zero maintenance and high reliability.

The internal power board is connected to the chassis with a thermal pad to enable high reliability even when used extensively.

An additional 2 x 2.5" SSD or Hard Drives can be added which can be configured as a RAID 0/1 pair for speed or security.

An alternative front plate enables the option of an Optical Drive (DVD, Blu-ray). An additional 2.5" SSD or Hard Drive can also be added when an Optical Drive is installed.

With a volume of less than 5 litres the PC is suitable for all applications in which performance, small size, silent operation or dust protection are requirements. It is elegant enough to take pride of place in the living room yet robust enough for serious industrial use.

 

New feature with this PC: The chassis has been adapted so that it is now possible to access the ultra fast PCIe SSD that is on the underside of the motherboard.  Simply remove a few screws in the PC's base plate, and once the base plate is removed the SSD can be replaced. The SSD has a thermal pad and aluminium cooling block so that even under extreme loads it does not overheat. These photos show the bottom plate removed.

Configured to your specification

We can create a solution to meet your specific requirements - just get in touch with the contact form, online chat, or give us a call.

If you choose the Windows installation option, as well as installing on the internal SSD drive, so it is ready to use out of the box, we also include a USB memory stick with the Windows installation, so you can rebuild or repair Windows if you need to.

You need to supply your own Monitor, Keyboard and Mouse. Please contact us if you need any recommendations or want custom additions bundled with your order.

Fanless Heatpipe Technology

ultimate-z390-top-close-400.jpg

The CPU and the motherboard chipset are cooled by using advanced heat pipes attached to both sides of the case. This technology provides efficient cooling by transferring the heat to the cooling fins on the outside. As a result you get a completely silent cooling solution that can be trusted.

The heatpipe cooling of the motherboard's chipset enables stable performance even under extreme loading. Cheaper fanless ITX cooling solutions rely on air cooling of the chipset which requires ventilation slots in those cases.
