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 …

Deepcool to Release an Updated Lucifer K2 Efficient CPU Cooler

Deepcool has introduced a ‘companion’ to its well-known cooler entitled Lucifer V2. The all-new Lucifer K2 features 163x146.5x131 mm dimensions and weighs 1047 g. The new-comer supports AMD and Intel platforms, including LGA2011-v3, LGA2011, LGA1366, LGA115x, LGA775 (Intel) & Socket FM2, FM2+, FM1, AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+ (AMD) as well as various CPUs with TDP level of not more than 130 W.



Deepcool Lucifer K2 boasts a purely-polished copper base, six copper heatpipes and an aluminum heatsink (140x110x163 mm). The latter ensures a large heat dissipation area. Despite having stately proportions, the cooler does not block off the access towards DIMM slots.


The key differentiation between V2 and K2 models lies in the choice of a fan. The previous solution featured a 140-mm item, while the newer one – a 120-mm fan, based on a fluid-dynamic bearing. The fan supports PWM technology that provides for a wide rotational range — from 600 RPM to 1800 RPM, — generating up to …

Motherboard Asus Maximus V Formula/ThunderFX Review

Latest Asus development, motherboard Asus Maximus V Formula, is notable for a rather high price. This is explained primarily by the implementation of high-end overclocking options and support of advanced brand technologies. Moreover, one might find this model at even higher price due to the availability of ThunderFX sound board in the nominal delivery set. Despite the pricing policy, this model is a desirable acquirement, since it provides unmatched performance and limitless facilities for overclockers.



Specifications


Asus Maximus V Formula/ThunderFX is developed in XL-ATX form factor. The model is based on Intel Z77 chipset specifically for Socket LGA 1155 CPU slot. CPU supports Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 and Asus TurboV EVO technologies which give access to overclocking facilities. Dedicated facilities allow the customer to alter Bclk frequencies from 80 MHz to 300 MHz (with 0.1 MHz shot) and to change voltage index in CPU, memory chips, PLL, CSA.
