HP Z240 Series Tower Workstation
The Z240 Series Tower Workstation from HP delivers powerful performance in a tower form factor and is designed for professionals who require high reliability. With the capabilities to operate in immersive work environments and handle 24x7x365 workloads, the Z240 delivers processor and graphics technologies, as well as scalability to meet your business needs, in a compact yet expandable tower.
This system is powered by a 3.6 GHz Intel Core i7-7700 Quad-Core processor which will allow you to run multiple applications simultaneously. If you need more power, the CPU can be overclocked to 4.2 GHz using Intel's Turbo Boost technology. The 16GB of 2400 MHz DDR4 non-ECC RAM helps to ensure smooth multitasking and also allows the computer to quickly access frequently-used files and programs. While the current memory configuration is 2 x 8GB, there are four total memory slots that will allow the RAM to be upgraded to 64GB, using one 16GB module in each of the four memory slots. For storage of your files, a 1TB 7200 rpm SATA III 3.5" hard drive offers quick access to your data.
If you want to add external storage drives or other peripherals, the Z240 features six USB 3.0 Type-A ports, four USB 2.0 Type-A ports (one of which doubles as a charging port), and two PS/2 ports. For users who wish to add additional components or upgrade the drive bays, the Z240 has a total of six expansion bays - two 5.25" half-height external bays, one 9.5mm slim optical drive bay, two 3.5" internal bays, and one 2.5" internal bay. There are also five PCIe expansion slots. The integrated Intel HD Graphics 630 chipset delivers a sharp, clear picture and allows video to be output at resolutions up to 2560 x 1600 using its two DisplayPort 1.2 and one DVI-D ports. Whether you are listening to music, watching a movie, or playing a game, the integrated Realtek HD ALC221-VB audio codec outputs high definition audio and delivers higher fidelity than standard audio controllers.
The Z240 Series Tower Workstation includes an HP Business Slim USB keyboard, a USB mouse, and a power cord. It operates at 90-269 VAC at 47-66 Hz. The installed operating system is Windows 10 Professional (64-Bit).

Pearstone 18" 7-pin Internal Straight to 90-Degree Serial ATA Cable (Red)
The 18" red Pearstone 7-pin Internal Straight to 90-Degree Serial ATA Cable features Serial ATA connectors for internal PC storage connections. Depending upon the peripherals used, you can get data transfer rates up to 6 Gbps. A 90-degree angled connector positions the cable in a way that produces less bend, and allows the cable to line up straight. This translates to reduced cable bend and fatigue for long-term durability.
