Western Digital Starts Delivering 2.5-inch HDD WD Green

Western Digital, a successful supplier of HDD solutions and other consumer electronics, has started the delivery of its new compact hard drives series. Codenamed WD Green, this series boasts the maximal volume capacity (2 TB) in the 2.5-inch HDD market sector. The company claims that WD Green is a perfect match for PCs that require efficient additional storage disks, for external hard drives, as well as, for devices requiring practically enormous volume facilities. At the same time, WD Green is capable to ensure low working temperatures and noiseless operation.

One of the major peculiarities and attraction of WD Green series is its power-saving and eco-friendly nature. First of all, all the models embraced by the series consume little power as in operational mode, so on the startup activity. This provides for the substantial decrease of the system loading.

Arctic Releases Cooling System for AMD Graphic Adapters

Swiss manufacturer of cooling systems, Arctic Cooling, has recently released a new cooler developed specifically for graphic adapters from AMD. Earlier this year the company launched the cooling system which is compatible with graphic adapters from Nvidia developers. The new product, codenamed Accelero Hybrid 7970, distinguishes from its predecessor also by the foot of water block which is upgraded to be compatible with AMD HD 7900 series.

Cooling system Accelero Hybrid 7970 consists of two parts which boast as air, so water cooling standards. It is able to manage up to 320W of hot air. The water block is cooled down by the 120 mm fan which is able to achieve the speed in the measures of 400-1350 rpm. The block, that is installed on the board, is equipped with 80 mm fan and is able to achieve from 900 to 2000 rpm speed. The noise level is dwindled down to the minimal index.

Arctic representatives claim that their new water block is 200% more efficient than the nominal …

Which DDR3 SDRAM is better for Ivy Bridge

The overclocker memory is now in the category of products for perfectionists, still the common users are pleased with usual modules DDR3-1600 or DDR3-1333 SDRAM. The issue appears related to the release of processors Ivy Bridge series, which in some aspects are similar to its predecessors, still have some distinctive features.

Ivy Bridge processors are restricted on the maximum frequency supported by the DDR3 SDRAM. This indicates the theoretical chance of these processors work with high-speed memory DDR3-3200 SDRAM. Developers of overclocker memory package perceived the change in rules with certain enthusiasm: there are DDR3-2400 modules available in stores. The gap in frequencies of «elite» and «running» versions of the memory has grown twice in size. It won’t have a noteworthy blow on the work of commonly used tasks in systems.

The memory controller in the Ivy Bridge can work both in symmetric mode, with delay, frequency and volume modules in memory channels, and …
