NVIDIA GeForce GT 240 (DDR5) Overclocking Guide - PCstats.com NVIDIA GeForce GT 240 (DDR5) Overclocking Guide
Fri, December 11 2009 | 5:22PM | PermaLink Feedback?
Our review of the Galaxy GeForce GT 240 (DDR5) showed that it was as fast as the GeForce 9600 GT (96 W). This makes it a superior solution as it is cheaper and has a lower power consumption and thermal output. It also supports DirectX 10.1 (as little of a difference that makes), DirectCompute 1.2 (instead of DirectCompute 1.1 in the GeForce 9600 GT) and a newer version of the PureVideo HD video processor. Finally, it comes with a HD audio processor built-in, so it supports 8-channel LPCM right out of the box. As it runs with such a low thermal output, it would be a sin not to exploit that and try overclocking it to the max. Of course, its overclockability would be limited by the fact that it is only powered by the PCI Express bus, limiting it to just 75 W of power. There's no way to know for sure without testing, and that's what we are going to do today. NVIDIA conveniently provides us with all the necessary tools for easy overclocking, with complete access to the core, shader and memory clock speeds. They even allow you to control the fan speed. All you have to do is install the overclocking tool and see how far it can go!

Western Digital VelociRaptor 600 GB Hard Disk Drive Review - PCstats.com Western Digital VelociRaptor 600 GB Hard Disk Drive Review
Tue, August 10 2010 | 4:01PM | PermaLink Feedback?
Western Digital may be marketing their new VelociRaptor family of high-speed hard drives as enterprise-class hard drives but they are also very popular with hardware enthusiasts who just cannot resist their 10,000 RPM spindle speed. To cater to this exclusive group of enthusiasts, Western Digital first introduced the Raptor and Raptor X hard drives with capacities of 36 GB to 150 GB. These Raptors evolved into the first-generation Western Digital VelociRaptor hard drives with twice the storage capacity in a much smaller 2.5" drive form factor. Western Digital has since introduced an improved version of the VelociRaptor, with double the storage capacity and support for SATA 6 Gb/s. The new VelociRaptor 6 Gb/s is available in storage capacities of 450 GB or 600 GB.
