The latest Hardcano Series hard disk cooler and multifunctional drive will make its debut today, according Thermaltake Technology. Hardcano 11 will be the thermal industry leader's 4th generation multifunctional drive.

As today's microprocessor, graphic processor and memory are pushing further along to make our PC ever so powerful, hard disk drives are also progressing in the same direction making it one of the major heat source inside the computer. "We realized the criticalness of the situation, Hardcano is designed to manage the heat problem and make sure the hard drive does not overheat" said Kenny Lin, President of Thermaltake.

Two redundancy 40mm fans are placed next to the hard disk drives to remove the heat away from the source, while Aluminum built body directs the heat elsewhere for exhaust. Tool-less rotating lock makes installing and removing effortless. Design of Hardcano 11 also increased security by adding Anti-Shock Data Stability bars.

LCD panel in the front shows critical information such as CPU temperature, fan speed and HUTR (Hard drive Time Usage Record). With built-in alarms, users will be notified when there is fan failure or when temperature is over the preset value. Manual Speed Controller can also be used to control the fan speed when connected. Hardcano 11 is said to be applicable with all standard 1" hard drives.

Thermaltake Technology today announced its plan to offer a highly manageable and portable case: Xaser III Lanfire edition. "We realized that as the trend of LAN Parties kept on growing steadily, people will be looking for a way to cut down on the weight which they have to carry to and from the party" commented Thermaltake Kenny Lin, "And we also create a new logo for LAN party event. You will find this logo on the series products."

Lanfire is only 4kg and you can call it "Ultra-light" and thanks to its aluminum built body and built-in Hardcano 9. Case is equipped with 4 built-in silent operation fans: two 80mm for intake and two 80mm for exhaust. Updated Hardcano 9 is capable of controlling all the included fans and more with backlit LCD temperature display.With the weight of only 8.8 pounds, comparable to a fully loaded laptop, users can now pack in their high-end hardware and take it wherever they go.
