Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Why DDR3 isn't faster - Why DDR3 isn't faster
Mon, August 13 2007 | 9:26AM | PermaLink Feedback?

Good Monday morning!

Pro-Clockers takes the Zerotherm CF800 and CF900 CPU coolers out for a spin. DriverHeaven shows off the Cooler Master Realpower M1000 PSU. Legion Hardware talks about why DDR3 memory is no faster than DDR2.

For some time now reviewing high-end DDR2 memory modules has almost been boring, as high speed 1000-1200MHz modules really offer nothing new in terms of performance. For a while there we even had trouble getting together CPU and motherboard combos that could overclock far enough to reach some of the incredible DDR2 speeds manufacturers were churning out. After all, there is little point lashing out and buying ultra expensive DDR2 memory capable of 1200MHz if you are not going to run it at a 1:1 ratio with the CPU’s FSB. That being the case, you would need to run the CPU on a 600MHz FSB and there is not exactly a long line of motherboards that can achieve this.

MadShrimps takes the nVIDIA GeForce 8600GT and compares it to the 7600GT. Xtreme Computing wraps things up with its take on Arctic Cooling MX2 Thermal Compound.
