Rosewill Introduces PSU Line of 80 Plus Platinum Standards

Rosewill, Californian hardware manufacturer, has gladdened its potential customers with a new PSU line codenamed Fortress. The major peculiarity of this line is that all products are characterized by rather high efficiency coefficient: up to 94% in 230 V alternating current networks. The new line involves models of 450W, 550W, 650W, and 750W showings which have already received 80 Plus Platinum certificate.

Low power dissipation is achieved exactly due to the high efficiency which reduces ventilation demands immensely. The employment of 135 mm fans provided for the perceptible decreased of noise. Those features are considered to be the basic attraction for the customers.

All four models in Fortress line are developed according to a similar scheme with a single 12 V bus. The chief differentiation between the models lies in the output capacity and a cable set. Hence, the high-order PSU is capable to give current of up to 62.5 A; in the aggregate with the available 4 …

Arctic Cooling Unveils New Freezer i32 & A32 CPU Coolers

Arctic Cooling AG replenishes its line of CPU coolers with a couple of new-comers. The Freezer i32 and the Freezer A32 feature analogous dimensions (123x95x150 mm), but are targeting to work with different platforms. The first model is compatible with Intel Socket LGA 2011 and 115x platforms, whereas the second version is predestined for the CPUs targeting AMD AM2/AM2+, AM3/AM3+, FM1 and FM2 platforms.

Arctic Cooling Freezer i32 & A32 consist of an aluminum heatsink with 45 thin plates and four U-shaped 6-mm copper heatpipes which support direct touch technology. It goes without saying that these coolers come equipped with a fan. This is a 120 mm propeller that supports PWM technology; the latter enables the change of rotational speed from 0 to 1350 RPM. The maximal TDP level of the catered CPUs should not exceed 150 W.

A dedicated bearing technology with alloy/lubricant combination provides for a lower friction and higher heat dissipation efficiency. The nominal delivery …

Crucial Teases New TLC-Based BX200 Solid-State Drive

Crucial has found a way to consolidate the needs of budget- and efficiency-oriented customer groups. Therefore, it developed a new series of SSDs, based on TLC memory. The BX200 2.5-inch drives (7 mm case depth) come equipped with 16-nm chips by Micron as well as Silicon Motion SM2256 controller. All the models share SATA III 6 Gb/sec interface and are compatible with Crucial Storage Executive & Acronis True Image HD utilities.

Crucial BX200 are available in three capacity versions: 240 GB, 480 GB and 960 GB. Their maximal sequential Read/Write speed makes up 540/490 Mb/sec, whereas the maximal random Read/Write index achieves 66.000 & 78.000 IOPS correspondingly. As far as one can see, there is no visible decrease in performance, if compared with MLC memory showings.

The new-comers are estimated for 72 TB of data lifespan; this equals to 40 GB of daily loading over a span of 5 years (MTBF – 1.500.000 hours). In order to provide for the utmost reliability, Crucial adds a …
