ASRock X99 Extreme4 Review @ Vortez
     Fri, Oct 31 2014 | 5:23P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Perhaps the key feature of the Extreme4 though is the price. When all of the above is taken into consideration you may feel deterred. You shouldnt because the main attraction here is the price. At 170 / $240 it is a decent price point and while much of the fat and glitter has been trimmed away, it is after all a solid performer, proven in our testing so if you can get along with the colour scheme and do not need the extravagances of higher end motherboards then we see no reason not to buy this product."

OCZ ARC 100 240GB SSD Review @HiTech Legion
     Fri, Oct 31 2014 | 12:05P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OCZ returning to the mainstream segment is an interesting development, to say the least, and its importance should not be underestimated. One needs to keep in mind that OCZ did not drop out of the this particular segment due to their products lacking performance."

Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR4 2400MHz 32GB Memory Kit Review @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Oct 31 2014 | 9:34A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Crucial recently announced that they have come out with enthusiast-class Ballistic Sport DDR4 modules that offer increased bandwidth over your traditional `value series` DDR4 memory kits. The kits also look better thanks to the use of a integrated heat spreader and a black PCB instead of traditional green PCB that has been around for decades. Crucial sent over the Ballistix Sport 32GB DDR4 2400MHz desktop memory kit that is sold under part number BLS4K8G4D240FSA. This memory kit runs at 2400MHz with 16-16-16-39 2T timings at 1.20V. Read on to see how this kit performs. We don`t want to spoil too much, but let`s just say it overclocked beyond 2400MHz and we got CL12 timings with a 1T command rate with the overclock.  Could this be the DDR4 memory kit to get this fall?"

Corsair Graphite 780T Tower PC Case Review
     Thu, Oct 30 2014 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
On September 10th Corsair released what they consider the true successor of the 600T, the 780T. This new full tower uses the same curved design as the 600T and includes a large side panel window. However, being a full tower chassis the 780T can mount dual 360mm radiators on the front and top panels, up to nine 120mm case fans or a mixture of 120 and 140 with up to five 140mm fans. Fully filtered intakes keep the interior clean and the top panel features a three speed fan controller along with a fully lit I/O panel. In this article, Benchmark Reviews inspects the new Corsair Graphite 780T full-tower computer case."

NZXT S340 Mid Tower Case Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Thu, Oct 30 2014 | 12:05P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In this instance, we will be looking closely at the (CA-S340W-W1) in short the NZXT S340 / White Edition. Its boxy looks are nice and practically chocked full of all the ideas that professional Mod Men of the past have been custom building and crafting into their own builds for years. In fact, this author was given an opportunity to patent one of these ideas featured in this very case many moons ago, but I was lazy and I passed on the occasion. Well no one is perfect I guess, including this lazy reviewer. The great abundance of flare and near modders styling makes this NZXT S340 the Box that Rocks and as you can see this reviewer is a fan already, but not all of us see things the same way, so lets get this NZXT party started."

Corsair Dominator Platinum 16GB 3300MHz DDR4 Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Oct 30 2014 | 10:40A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last week we looked at the Corsair Dominator Platinum 16GB 3200MHz DDR4 memory kit. That kit of memory offered pretty impressive performance, but it is not the fastest DDR4 memory kit that Corsair has to offer. Corsair has a Dominator Platinum DDR4 memory kit clocked at 3300MHz and that is the fastest memory kit that Corsair currently offers. Corsair calls this the World?s fastest production memory kit and that appears to be true. The only memory company that is able to compete at this level would be G.Skill, but we can?t find any 3300MHz or 3333MHz DDR4 memory kits by them available to purchase online. Read on to see how this kit performs and to see how it overclocks. We were able to get it past 3333MHz!"

A couple of the SSDs in our endurance experiment have now reached 1.5 petabytes of writes. But another one failed on the last stretch, bringing the number of casualties up to four. We`ve performed an autopsy and checked in on the survivors to see how they`re holding up."
