Enermax Outs High-Flown Twister Pressure Fan

One of the major requirements for an efficient CPU cooler is a high static pressure. The higher this index is, the more productive the blades are. Quite the contrary, the main requirement for a system fan is a volume of produced airflow, since it affects the air circulation within the case. Taking into account those facts, Enermax decided to elaborate a fan that would unite both demands. That is how Twister Pressure fan came into the market.

Enermax Twister Pressure is a high-efficiency fan targeting to be implementing within CPU cooling solutions. It is based on Twister Bearing 2, which framework has been optimized for a reliable operation under unfavorable thermal conditions (up to 85 degrees) and under high dust content. The second version of Twister Bearing is supposed to run over 160.000 hours in fail-proof mode; this is 60% more than the initial version could perform.

To continue, this fan offers three operational modes: Performance, Silent and Ultra Silent. All of …

The Release of AMD FX 8320 and FX 8300 Is Round the Corner

AMD is working intensely at the development of 8-core processors, the release of which is prognosticated for the 4th quarter of 2012. According to the preliminary data, AMD will release two models at once: FX 8320 and FX 8300. Such information could not but rejoice all customers using AMD FX processors on Bulldozer architecture, since the new CPUs are promised to be more efficient. The new processors will go with Vishera codename and will be built on the improved Piledriver architecture.

Similar to the flagship model AMD FX-8350, the two models will be designed on the basis of 32 nm micro architecture. They will support DDR3 memory with the frequency of 1866 MHz and will have 8Mb of L3 cache-memory. The two models will also support Socket AM3+ slot. Therefore, the major advantage of the new processor is that they will offer almost 20% more efficiency as compared to the current chips of FX series.

Nevertheless, the two CPUs, FX 8320 and FX 8300, will have certain …

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 …
