Trying Out the W2100z Sun Java Workstation
By Roman Strobl on VII 18, 2005
I would like to introduce you my new workstation:
It's performance really rocks! With 2 64bit CPUs and 2 GB memory I can run many applications at once without much speed degradation. NetBeans start very very fast :-) The only drawback is the noise, it has two big fans which are necessary to cool it down.
If you are the owner of this workstation or it's brother W1100z, I have one hint for you. You can lower the fan noise by setting the cooling mode from default "agressive" to "normal". Hopefully it also gets less noisy if it's not so hot, we had today quite tropical weather in Prague. We'll see when the temperatures will go down.
Update: I should also write where to change the option. It's in Bios (F2 on boot), on bottom of the monitoring section.
