Kingston Showcases New Enterprise-Class SSDNow E50

Kingston, an outstanding developer of various data storage solutions, has recently introduced a new series of solid-state drives intended for enterprise use. Entitled SSDNow E50, the products feature a standard 2.5-inch design and are available in three capacities: 100 GB, 240 GB and 480 GB correspondingly. The new-comer employs SATA III 6 Gb/sec interface and MLC NAND synchronous flash-memory.

Kingston SSDNow E50 takes LSI SandForce-SF2581 controller as the basis. It ensures rather high performance showings. With the purpose to guarantee a stable operation of the drives, to minimize data transfer errors and reduce the cell wear, the manufacturer furnished the models with DuraClass, DuraWrite, S.M.A.R.T., and RAISE technologies. As a result, Mean Time between Failures is estimated as 1.000.000 hours.

In regard to speed characteristics, each model demonstrates the following showings:

— SSDNow E50 100 GB: the max. sequential Read speed – 550 MB/sec, the max. sequential …

Zalman ZM-GVM Introduces ZM-GVM Bronze PSUs

Zalman adds another series of power supply units to its portfolio. The ZM-GVM series is represented so far by three semi-modular units of 500 W, 600 W and 700 W capacity. They correspond to ATX12V 2.31 standard and boast 80Plus Bronze certificate since their efficiency achieves 88%. The new-comers are able to operate in a wide range of input voltages (115-230 V), featuring only a single +12V rail.

Zalman ZM-GVM units employ dual forward converter as the basis. Semi-modular design presupposes permanent fixture of the main cables and demountable construction of optional cables. Efficient cooling is the task for a low-noise 120-mm fan, whereas sustainability of the units is entrusted to the advanced protection system.

Zalman ZM500-GVM PSU accommodates 1x 24-pin connector, 4+4-in ATX 12V, 3x MOLEX, 5x SATA, 1x FDD, and 2x 6+2-pin PCI Express connectors. The ZM600-GVM offers 4x MOLEX and 6x SATA connectors in addition to the base ones. The senior ZM700-GVM houses 4x MOLEX …

CPU Cooler SilverStone NT06-PRO Review

The tendency of assembling small-sized but efficient system units is becoming more apparent among all PC users. Nowadays the extensive occurrence of mini-tower chassis and mini-ITX motherboards requires the employment of corresponding pocket-size CPU coolers. Unfortunately, the latter are practically a rarity, however the demand for small but highly productive coolers is rising on daily basis. SilverStone is one of the few companies that elaborated such kind of products. Its latest NT06-PRO combines all advantages each full-sized model has and is ready to provide a truly efficient cooling.
