The Z420 Convertible Minitower F1M14UT Workstation from HP delivers powerful performance in a convertible minitower form factor. This workstation is powered by a 3.0 GHz Intel Xeon E5-1607 Quad-Core processor, and has 4GB of 1866 MHz of PC3-14900 DDR3 ECC RAM to help ensure smooth multi-tasking. This system incorporates a 500GB 7200 rpm SATA hard drive for long-term data storage. A 16x SuperMulti DVD burner is also built-in for reading and writing data stored on optical media.
The 4GB 240-Pin DIMM DDR3 PC3-14900 Memory Module from Crucial increases the speed of computing systems by providing a module of 4GB with DDR3 memory. It is designed to run at 1866 MHz frequency (PC3-14900) with a CAS latency of 13.
The 24TB 8big Thunderbolt 2 Rack Series RAID from LaCie is an 8-bay storage enclosure complete with a 24TB storage capacity perfect for storing large files such as 4K video, RAW photos, and much more. With Thunderbolt 2 connectivity you can transfer data at speeds up to 1330 MB/s (in RAID 0) to greatly enhance 4K workflows as you can now see edits in real time. Additionally, the LaCie 8big Rack Thunderbolt 2 works in conjunction with applications such as Apple Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premier, Adobe Lightroom, and Apple Aperture.
The 361T PCIe Dual-Port Gigabit Network Interface Card from HP is a fast PCIe Gen 2.1 dual-port gigabit network solution for HP Z workstations. It has two RJ-45 ports on a single PCIe adapter. The adapter comes with IEEE 1588 Precision Time Stamping feature. A fully integrated (bridgeless) Intel Ethernet I350 controller has been optimized for current Integrated I/O and Data Direct I/O technologies. Furthermore, the adapter delivers outstanding network performance of 10/100/1000 Mb/s Ethernet transfer rate that improves response time and eliminates bottlenecks.
Add high-speed Thunderbolt 2 connectivity to your HP Z series workstation with the HP Thunderbolt-2 PCIe 1-Port I/O Card. This PCIe card supports bi-directional Thunderbolt 2 speeds up to 20 Gb/s, and supports daisy-chaining of up to 6 Thunderbolt devices. The HP Thunderbolt-2 PCIe 1-Port I/O Card is compatible with the HP Z820, Z620, Z420, and Z230 workstations, and supports a wide range of Thunderbolt and Thunderbolt 2 peripherals without requiring a cable adapter. This PCIe card has a DisplayPort input for outputting video with its simultaneous Thunderbolt connection.
The 256GB 2.5" SSD 850 Pro from Samsung is an internal drive that offers storage space for Windows and Mac systems. This SSD features 32 layer 3D V-NAND technology that offers twice the speed and density of traditional SSDs. This feature provides up to 100K IOPS random read speed and 90K random write speeds. Sequential read and writes are up to 550 MB/s and 520 MB/s. This SSD can also offer higher speeds by enabling RAPID mode. Besides offering performance, the SSD 850 Pro uses 50% less power than traditional hard drives and supports device sleep mode that uses only 2mW.
The AdaptaDrive 2.5" to 3.5" Drive Converter Bracket from Newer Technology enables you to install a 2.5" hard drive or SSD in a 3.5" SATA drive bay. This bracket features a circuit board bridge adapter that supports SATA III interfaces. By offering a bridge adapter with this bracket, you can easily install a faster 2.5" drive to the backplane tray in Mac Pros. This adapter delivers direct pass through performance so your SATA III drive maintains its 6 Gb/s transfer speed without any slowdown from bottlenecking or performance throttling. For supporting drives with slower SATA speeds, it is also backwards compatible with SATA II and SATA I interfaces. In addition, the aluminum converter bracket features an open design, which allows your cooling system to provide cool air to flow around the drive.
The installation of all the additional components is done by a certified technician from the B&H's Computer Service Center. The technician will install the components in compliance with the original manufacturer's warranty. This will ensure that your computer and its components are still covered after installation.
