HGST Announces Corporate-Class Ultrastar C10K1800 Hard Drives

Despite the emergence of ultra-fast and voluminous SSD devices, data processing centers still require classical storage solutions. Hence, HGST, an affiliate company of Western Digital, decided to comply with the corporate demands by introducing budgetary hard drives entitled Ultrastar C10K1800. The new-comers are targeting exactly DPC-systems which are in need of high performance combined with fail-safe behavior.



HGST Ultrastar C10K1800 drives feature 2.5-inch form-factor and come in diverse capacity variations (from 300 GB to 1.8 TB). The models employ SAS interface with 12 Gb/sec throughput. It should be noted that designers involved the minimal amount of plates on the maximal possible tape density. The latter are thought to rotate with 10.520 RPM.


The implementation of only few plates provides for the reduction of power consumption; this is supposed to be a great benefit since the drives are estimated for a durable 24/7 operation. Thus, an average power consumption …

Asus Boasts a New ROG Swift PG278Q Gaming Monitor

Asus has begun a new season with the introduction of one more ROG series representative – the ROG Swift PG278Q PC monitor. This 27-inch model outstrips the competitors by a number of exclusive facilities, including an increased refresh rate (starting from 120 Hz), a minimal response time (1 ms only), a true WQHD resolution, and support for Nvidia G-Sync technology. In keeping with the company’s strategy, the monitor is oriented primarily on gamers; however, all fans of high-end imaging will find it a godsend.



To begin with, it must be stressed that Asus ROG Swift PG278Q is the first ever display with WQHD resolution (2560x1440) that supports advanced G-Sync options. These options are thought to synchronize the screen refresh rate with the GPU frames output rate. Thanks to this, there is no tearing or output latency; instead, the gamers enjoy more productivity and a really swift response. The model accommodates DisplayPort v.1.2 in order to communicate with compatible …

Akasa Intros a Small-Sized AK-CC1101EP02 CPU Cooler

Following the release of a low-profile cooler, codenamed AK-CC7122EP01, Akasa is glad to introduce one more small-sized item. The AK-CC1101EP02 features 80x80x28.3 mm dimensions and is predestined to be employed as a part of a compact system within mini-ITX/micro-ATX chassis. The model is compatible with AMD FM1/FM2/754/939/AM2(+)/AM3(+) sockets only.



Akasa AK-CC1101EP02 involves an aluminum heatsink with cam-lever clip installation type, a thermal compound on the base, and a 80 mm fan. The latter is based on EBR bearing and equipped with PWM technology that adjusts the rotational speed from the minimal 600 RPM to the maximal 3000 RPM.


Its efficiency achieves 26.53 CFM, producing up to 27 dB noise. The estimated time of fail-proof operation equals to 40.000 hours. The fan is adjoined to the motherboard via a 4-pin connector and receives voltage power via 12VDC bus.


Just for comparison means, the predecessor — AK-CC7122EP01 – features 85.2x87.2x26 mm dimensions. …
