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
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 CPUs 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.
