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 …

Evga Debuts with a First-Rate ACX CPU Cooler

Evga, a company primarily known for high-end graphics solutions, decided to expand its production line by entering cooling market. Herein, it elaborated a first-rate CPU cooler, entitled ACX (codename: 100-FS-C201-KR). The new-comer features 164x134.5x91.5 mm dimensions and weighs 1065 g. Luckily, it can be already found in free sale for a price of $50.

The ACX is a tower-like air cooler that is able to efficiently remove heat from all processors that are compatible with the following sockets: Intel LGA 2011/1156/1155/1366/1150/775 and AMD FM1/FM2/AM3/AM3+/AM2/AM2+.

Evga ACX consists of an aluminum heatsink, five copper heatpipes that support Direct Touch technology, and one PWM fan of 120 mm dimensional type. The heatsink is composed of multiple thin plates, which differentiate themselves by an unusual framework. Such framework enables the emergence of two airflows around the heatpipes. According to Evga, this promotes for a better heat removal process.
