New Freezer 12/12 CO Coolers Push the Arctic Company Forward

On a recent day, the Arctic Co. has broadened its CPU coolers range with the Freezer 12 and Freezer 12 CO (CO means “continuous operation”) samples under the ACFRE00027A and ACFRE00030A code names.



The heatsink is the same for both coolers; fans are different, though. The Freezer 12 fan is built on a hydrodynamic bearing, and Freezer 12 CO is based on a fan with a dual ball bearing, which operates extremely long comparing to the better part of models.


The heat dissipator is designed so, that U-shaped 6 mm copper heat pipes stay in touch with each other, thus enhancing the cooling system productivity. The aluminium pressure plate and 45 bent radiator fins also contribute to that.


Fans start to operate at the PWM signal with 40 % pulse width and ensure passive CPU cooling while completing trivial tasks. This lets coolers work silently during such periods. The ultimate noise rate is 22.5 dBA, and the max speed comes up to 2,000 rpm.


Both Arctic novelties support …

Thecus Company introduced a new naming scheme for products

Company Thecus decided to introduce a new naming scheme for its drives, so that users can easily understand its product line. New names will have all future models.



In the name with length of five to seven characters will be encoded some information about the device. The first letter indicates the type of device: N — NAS running Linux, D — DAS, W — NAS running Windows, V — NVR. This is followed by a two-digit number indicating the number of disks (compartments for storage) in the system. If this amount is less than 10, the first zero is omitted. Fourth and fifth digit is coded by the hardware platform used. For example, 21 — Cavium Econa, 31 — Marvell Armada, 51 — Intel Atom Cedarview, 52 — Intel EvanSport, 53 — Intel Atom third-generation, 81 — Sandy Bridge, 82 — Ivy Bridge, 83 — Other Platforms future generations. On the sixth position, which is reserved for future needs, zero is registered. If the system is performed in rack format, the model name is …

BitFenix Offers a Small-Sized Phenom Mini-ITX PC Chassis

BitFenix has expanded its Phenom series of PC cases with a new small-sized model – the Phenom Mini-ITX. It features 250x330x374 mm dimensions and comes in two color variations: back and white. The chassis is made of steel with plastic inclusions and has got SofTouch coating. Irrespective of the envelope, the greenhorn offers quite appropriate internal spacing for the creation of a modern PC system.



BitFenix Phenom Mini-ITX comes with a single 5.25-inch drive bay and is able to accommodate up to six 3.5-inch or 2.5-inch drives. It also has a removable FlexCage drive bay. Besides, the framework includes a dedicated adapter for 5.25-inch devices; if it is removed, the chassis is ready to house up to six 3.5-inch items and up to eleven 2.5-inch items.


Internal space is optimal for rather lengthy graphics cards, up to 330 mm, on condition of a removed FlexCage. The maximal height of CPU coolers should not exceed 175 mm. Special attention has been paid to the cooling system. …
