Sweetwater Creation Station 450x Rackmountable CPU at a Glance:
Best processors and finest-quality components
We painstakingly evaluated CPUs to determine which processors would perform reliably with Windows audio applications. For the Creation Station 450x, we chose the blazing-fast Ivy Bridge Xeon 4-core CPU to provide uncompromised speed and reliability.
We chose components for our Creation Station computers that are not only the best in terms of build quality and performance, but also the best in terms of how well they interact with all of the other elements in the system. When you're working with audio, you need rock-solid, dependable performance. That's why we chose an Intel motherboard for the Creation Station 450x. It's built to stand up to the rigors of the studio - and the stage. We also chose the highest-quality power supplies and cooling fans for our new Creation Stations, with ultra-quiet operation in mind. With optimized airflow, maximum efficiency, and the best components available, our audio computers give you the ultra-low-noise performance you need, without the risk of overheating.
Quality hard drives for performance and reliability
Your recording projects require hard drives that give you quiet, reliable service. The Creation Station 450x's 2TB Seagate Barracuda drive effortlessly handles the demands of audio recording, while the lightning-fast 240GB Solid State Drive gives you amazing performance for your system software.
