Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
 regular style HyperX  - regular style HyperX

" Kingston recently introduced an addition to its HyperX line of memory called ‘HyperX blu’. This memory is meant for entry level gamers and PC enthusiasts, which to menas means it’s more of a ‘value’ line but yet offer the performance you’ve come to expect from HyperX. I can tell you though that the blu performs just as well as the regular style HyperX and just costs a little less. The kit I have for review today is the Kingston HyperX blu 1600Mhz 2×2gb kit that runs at Cas 9 on Intel XMP settings at 1.65v. So I’ve put it up against two other HyperX kits, a standard kit that runs @1600 and the LoVo kit that runs @1866 for comparison. I also did some overclocking of course and this kit hit 2000Mhz very easily, a very respectable and stable overclock. Read on and see for yourself how it performs.."
