Micron M600 mSATA SSD Review (256GB)
     Wed, Oct 08 2014 | 12:57P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
M.2 SSDs were developed to replace the mSATA form factor, however these devices are still in their infancy and the demand for mSATA SSD still exists. mSATA SSDs are mainly deployed in mobile devices such as tablets, laptops, and Ultrabooks because they allow for lighter and thinner designs. Their high performance, small foot print, and low power consumption make them the perfect fit for these devices over standard 2.5 HDDs. Over the next few years the production of client tablets and notebook PCs will be doubling by OEMs. Micron has taken notice of this and has just released their M600 line of SSDs as a solution. Offering a multiple varieties of compact, reliable, and high performance SSDs will allow companies, such as Micron, greater growth in the industry. Last week we went over both the 2.5 7mm and M.2 form factor M600 SSDs. Today, we will draw the saga to a close with our very last form factor for review, the mSATA model."

Posted by: STAFF
Cougar, in expanding their line-up of peripherals, has recently added mice and keyboards to the mix.Today Benchmark Reviews examines Cougar?s second mouse released to the market: The 700M.

G.Skill Ripjaws4 DDR4-2400 16GB Memory
     Wed, Oct 08 2014 | 9:03A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Recently we took a look at our first DDR4 memory kit, which was from Crucial. It was their JEDEC kit so it had no XMP profile and runs at the stock 2133 MHz as well as no fancy heatspreaders. Well the kit we are taking a look at today is much different. It has a nice set of heatspreaders and runs at 2400 MHz with timings of 15-15-15-25 at 1.2V. The kit we are talking about is G.Skill’s F4-2400C15Q-16GRK kit, which is a 16 GB kit. G.Skill will also be offering these kits in three different color options so you can match them to your motherboard, case and other components. Let’s get these modules in our X99 system and see what they can do!"

BitFenix Pandora
     Wed, Oct 08 2014 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
BitFenix is looking to step things up in terms of the material mix with the Pandora. While plastic and steel have dominated their cases until now, the Pandora utilizes aluminium side panels and a bolder design. Will the Pandora bridge the gap between function and design or will it remain as elusive as a planet on which tall, blue creatures live?

Kingston SM2280S3 M.2 SATA SSD Review (240GB)
     Tue, Oct 07 2014 | 8:34A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The introduction of the SM2280S3 M.2 SSD last June marked Kingston Technologys first entry to the M.2 SSD arena. For those new to M.2 SSDs, M.2 marks the standardization of smaller form factor SSDs to sizes smaller than what we have seen in mSATA. M.2 accommodates both SATA and PCIe performance, while at the same time offering capacities as high as 1TB. The SM2280S3 M.2 SSD is targeted at system builders and we initially saw its release of the 120GB version in June, followed by 240 and 480GB capacities in Q3, the 240GB capacity on our bench today. M.2 may be new to many but get ready as it will be creating a totally different picture en mass in the SSD arena before long. Better yet, do some digging into the webs top M.2 coverage to get you up to speed on the M.2 form factor!"

Asus GTX 750 Ti Strix OC Edition @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Oct 07 2014 | 5:53A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Even now that the GTX 750 Ti isnt the only Maxwell cards on the market, I still find them an interesting GPU. Some of you may remember from our launch coverage of the GTX 750 Ti that it packed a punch without ever needing an extra power connection. Well that was the reference design; many of the other models on the market sadly required a 6-pin power connection for their overclocked models. Well Asus sent over their Strix OC Edition of the GTX 750 Ti and low and behold, it has the same low power requirements as the reference design. Today Im going to put it through our test suite and see what a little overclock does for the Maxwell powered GTX 750 Ti."

Raijintek Agos Mid-Tower Chassis Review
     Mon, Oct 06 2014 | 5:41P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Raijintek have been on a winning streak ever since they hit the market, launching one award-winning product after another. Their real strong point has been class leading performance at affordable prices when compared to the competition and their CPU and GPU coolers are a prime example of this. Raijintek are now looking to tackle the chassis market and we’ve got their budget friendly Agos at our disposal to see if they can do the same for the chassis market, as they have for the cooling market. The Agos is certainly affordable, with a price tag of just under £40 from most major retailers. This is a fiercely competitive part of the market and while many of us dream of owning ultra high-end chassis products that cost £100, the reality is that £30-50 is where most of us end up spending our money, so it’ll be interesting to see what the Raijintek Agos has to offer for this kind of money. The chassis comes equipped with all of the features you could ask for when building a gaming rig; lots of airflow with dust filters, modular storage bays, USB 3.0 support, water cooling support, room for large air coolers, space for extra fans, tool free drive installation and room for large graphics cards of up to 410mm; more than enough for even the largest cards on the market.
