Cougar Vortex Fans: the Secret of Success

Nowadays a lot of hardware developers employ Vortex fans from Cougar in the design of various PC components, including CPU coolers and graphics cards. Such demand is primarily explained by an elaborate approach to the fans' framework construction. Profound testing is not the last thing to contribute to the company's success. Indeed, since the launch date in 2011, Vortex line has been enjoying great popularity throughout the world and, especially, on American and European markets.

Therefore, Cougar has designed unique fan impellers that ensure a balanced correlation between such parameters as static pressure, noise level and airflow. The implementation of aerodynamic elements on the internal part of the frame in combination with the grooves on the impellers are able to promote for an improved airflow focusing; this is achieved due to the acceleration of airflow in edge area.

All Vortex fans are based on a hydrodynamic bearing that provides for the prolonged lifetime and …

D-Link Introduces New Storage Area Network Series DSN-6000

D-Link, a world-known manufacturer of network and telecommunications solutions, has officially introduced its two SAN models which are unified into a single series DSN-6000 iSCSI. The prime destination of this SAN series is to satisfy the needs of small and medium-sized business and to provide effective solutions of any emerging demands. DSN-6000 is characterized by the improved efficiency and performance index, as compared to the previous model lineups, on operation in virtual and physical environment.

The series is represented by two models: DSN-6410 iSCSI and DSN-6110 iSCSI. The both models go with the casing designed in 2U form factor, and is intended to be installed into a typical server frame. The models are equipped with twelve bays for drives and SAS interface. The cumulative volume capacity of the bays approximates to 36 Tb. DSN-6410 iSCSI is furnished with a couple of 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports, while the DSN-6110 iSCSI model accommodates four Gigabit Ethernet ports.

LEPA to Release MX-F1 and MaxGold 1000 PSUs

LEPA is ready to release a new series of entry-level power supply units entitled MX-F1. The series counts three models of 400 W, 500 W and 600 W capacity: N400-SA-EU, N500-SA-EU and N600-SA. In addition, the company has expanded its MaxGold line with a flagship 1000-watt model. It corresponds to Intel ATX12V 2.4 standard and employs an optimized hardware design.

To begin with, MX-F1 PSUs offer 87% of ultimate efficiency. Operating at 20%/50%/100% loading, they are able to achieve 82%/85%/82% efficiency correspondingly. Nonetheless, the models cannot receive 80Plus Bronze certificate, since they feature limited voltage input range. All the models within the series employ a single +12V rail and boast a non-modular design.

This promotes for the connection of middle-efficiency components. They support Active PFC and a wide spectrum of protective functions (over-voltage, over-current, over-power, short-circuit). Cooling of internal components is ensured by a single 120 mm fan. …
