Thermalright Readies Le Grand Macho Passive Cooler

Thermalright decided to gladden all devotees of ultra-quiet PC systems by designing an efficient passive cooler – Le Grand Macho. This is a conventional tower cooler, supporting new and outdated CPUs of up to 95 W TDP. Hence, the greenhorn is compatible with Intel LGA 775/115x/1366/2011/2011-3 as well as AMD FM2/FM2+/FM1/AM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+ platforms.

Initially, Thermalright Le Grand Macho is void of any fan; nonetheless, its framework presupposes the installation of one or two high-efficiency fans (120/140 mm), which are able to cope with 300-watt CPUs.

The cooler consists of a nickel-plated base, seven heatpipes and a voluminous aluminum heatsink with 35 fins. The latter come with perforations which counteract air between the plates with low air resistance. The base features a convex-shaped contact surface (that optimizes cooling efficiency) and is perfectly polished. Seven 6-mm heatpipes are solidly integrated into the base, ensuring ideal heat dissipation.

WD Prepares Voluminous Re+ HDDs for Data Centers

Western Digital announces a new high-capacity 3.5-inch HDD for data centers. The WD Re+ will be available in versions of up to 6 TB. All of them are designed with power-saving ideas in mind; hence, their maximal power consumption index does not go above 6 W. The new-comer employs five-platter architecture and SATA 6 Gb/sec interface that guarantees the maximal efficiency level. Moreover, its MTBF index approximates 1.2 million hours on average workload index of 550 TB per year.

The WD Re+ is distinguished by the following advantages:

— the incorporation of dual actuator positioning system that improves the drive’s working efficiency;

— the implementation of RAFF technology that monitors HDD parameters in real time and compensates for the linear and angular vibration;

— the employment of StableTrac technology that reduces vibrations and stabilizes drive platters;

— the usage of TLER technology that prevents latencies or an abrupt destruction of RAID … …

Three-Dimensional Monitor HP 2311 GT Review

Three-dimensional technology applied in PC monitors enjoys popularity primarily with more well-to-do people rather than general public. This can be simply explained by the price aspect attached to the issue: 3D monitors with all accompanying equipment are a costly acquirement, and not every customer is ready or can afford buying them for home use. Hewlett-Packard company always tries to comply with the demands and possibilities of their consumers; however, the company does not forget about the development and innovations. Thus, HP delivered three-dimensional monitor with passive polarized 3D technology, codenamed HP 2311 GT.

Design and Specifications

First of all, it should be mentioned that HP 2311 GT is basically oriented on the entry level customers, and this is vindicated by the moderate price policy ascribed to the series. The casing is made of plastic with mould base; this base does not allow any alterations in monitor's height or rotation. The tilt can be adjusted …
