Updating HP Z Workstations with the latest innovations
In addition to our HP ZBook Mobile Workstations, we’re proud to announce two of our most innovative products developed for the HP Z Workstation line-up:  the HP Z Cooler and HP Z Turbo Drive Quad Pro.
HP Z Cooler

The HP Z Cooler is an innovative, ultra-quiet cooling solution supported on HP Z440 and Z840 Workstations.

The HP Z Cooler reduces system noise in HP Z Workstation environments, even under the most demanding workloads, by lowering helping lower CPU fan speed.  Experience an acoustic level reduction of up to 8.5dBA – perceived as being 40% as loud to the human ear – versus previous generations.  The noise reduction benefits come from HP’s unique, revolutionary heat-transfer solution that combines 3D vapor chamber technology and HP’s innovative staggered, hex-fin design.
