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 …

Corsair to Release Hydro Series H5 SF Liquid Cooler

Taking into account the increasing number of cases when it’s impossible to install highly efficient air coolers on mini-ITX motherboards, Corsair has developed a universal low-profile liquid cooler. Entitled Hydro Series H5 SF, the unit shows compatibility with the majority of small-sized platforms for Intel LGA1366/115x and AMD FM1/FM2/AM2/AM3 sockets. Besides, this model is able to manage with up to 150 W of thermal power.



Corsair Hydro Series H5 SF is distinguished by an unusual framework. It employs dedicated props which hover the heatsink over the motherboard; thus, the system does not require additional space within the case. The base is made of polished copper.


The aluminum heatsink (167x40x57) is accompanied by a 120-mm fan that drags out hot air from heat-generating components. Its rotation speed varies from 1000 RPM to 1800 RPM, producing 12-24 CFM airflow. Still, the fan appears to be rather noisy with the peak levels of 36-42 dB.


Corsair bundles the …
