Patriot Viper Extreme Division 2 RAM @ Techreaction.net
     Wed, Jul 18 2012 | 9:37A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to long names the Patriot Viper Extreme Division 2 series dual channel memory kit, pull no punches. There is a lot of power in a name, and this dual channel (division 2) kit of RAM from Patriot, an Extreme version of their Viper lineup, should have lots of power. The memory kit is normally a dual channel affair, but with 2 kits on hand popping them into an X79 system for testing seemed like more fun. As with years gone past, memory pairing, is not so much about getting special sticks, its just a matter of matching frequency, timings and voltage to the common denominator (be it high or low). So getting 2 dual channel kits for a quad channel motherboard, is absolutely okay, and makes piece meal upgrades more palatable. The Sticks in hand today are PXD38G1600LLK. They Operate at 1600 MHz, 8-9-8 timings, 4GB double sided sticks running at 1.65v. This is a normal DDR voltage for last year, but seems a bit high with new JEDEC specs pushing out 1.35v RAM now. For the enthusiast it is not that big of a deal though and 1.65v is easily doable and more on modern CPUs."

SSD NEWS: MyDigitalSSD Bullet Proof 3 SATA III 512GB SSD Review - A Force Behind SSD Affordability
     Wed, Jul 18 2012 | 9:07A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When you think about SSDs, the first names that come to mind are probably those of bigger companies, such as OCZ, Intel, Samsung, Toshiba, Kingston, and SanDisk.just to name a few. Recently however, a fairly new company named MyDigitalSSD has been making headlines, especially here on The SSD Review. Keeping the trend alive, we take a fresh look at the new 512GB MyDigitalSSD Bullet Proof 3 Solid-State Drive. Those who have wondered why SandForce based SSDs seem to have a shorter storage capacity than all others (ie 240/256GB) need not worry further. LSI has recently released code to manufacturers which allows them to remove that 7% over provisioning that Sandforce drives are famous for without a performance kick, providing the consumer with 7% more storage on each new SSD."

Guru3D Rig of the Month - June 2012

Posted by: STAFF
One person we have been following closely on his build-log is Eric Soeters from the Netherlands, and although his build still is not 100% finished, it`s nearly there and just amazing. He has built the chassis from ground up including some very hard work. The end result is his new PC called the Exo-S, we`ll just leave the explanation and working to the man himself as the only thing that is left after you have seen this build is to clap your hands and yell bravo.

OCZ Vertex 4 256GB Review
     Tue, Jul 17 2012 | 9:55A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the ATTO testing the Vertex 4 met or exceeded the read and write specifications with the new firmware of 560MB/s read and 510MB/s write. OCZ nailed the performance with this drive as well as the reliability concerns that come with a new controller. To make sure that the end user has piece of mind for the long term usability of the Vertex 4 OCZ has increased the length of the warranty by two years over the warranty period in place on the Vertex 3 to five years."

OCZ Vertex 4 256GB Solid State Drive Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Tue, Jul 17 2012 | 9:55A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We all know OCZ as one of the top names in the SSD market. Believe it or not just a few years ago their main focus was enthusiast memory! The popular 3rd party solid state drive controller that everyone has been using over the past year or so has been the SandForce SF-2281 chip. Because so many companies are using the same controller the solid state drive market has become saturated with the same type of drives that offer just about the same performance. OCZ wants to remain a big player in the solid state drive market and with their purchase of Indilinx last year they made that very apparent. Earlier this year OCZ announced the second generation Everest solid state drive controller (Everest 2) and the Vertex 4 is the first consumer drive to use this controller. With rated speeds of 560MB/s read and 510MB/s write it is set to compete very well with SandForce-based drives. Read on as we check out this new drive from OCZ!"

PNY GeForce GTX 670 @ Bjorn3D
     Tue, Jul 17 2012 | 9:55A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The NVIDIA GTX 670 is one of our favorite cards at the $400 price range due to its performance, low power consumption, and relatively quiet operational noise. The PNY GTX 670 again follows the companys tradition of using the reference design from NVIDIA, but what sets the PNY GTX 670 apart from other reference design GTX 670s is the lifetime warranty and price."

Raidmax Viper @ Techreaction.net
     Tue, Jul 17 2012 | 9:55A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we have the Raidmax Viper on our test bench for testing. Raidmax is well known across the industry as always having some wild looking cases, because they like to push the envelope in the aesthetic department. The Viper is one of the more tame designs they have produced, which could be a good thing for some people. It sports a USB 3.0 connection that has an internal connection for motherboards and comes in three different color schemes. We have the Black/Orange themed Viper today. The other color schemes are White/Red and Red/Black. Now we shall see how well this Viper does in our testing. Read on "

HD 7970 CrossFire Gaming Performance: AMD Catalyst 12.7 Beta @ ocaholic
     Tue, Jul 17 2012 | 9:16A | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We found out that there were 2 different drivers dated june 12 that popped out on the web. The first one we tested earlier were the Catalyst 12.x Unofficial Beta labeled 9.000.0 and now comes the Catalyst 12.7 Beta version 8.981.2. We were a bit disappointed by the 9.000.0 even if they had the best performance ratio a glitch in performance was present under Dragon Age II. Are the 12.7 Beta better? Will there be the same performance glitch or even more? Let`s see which is the best driver for the Radeon HD 7970 CrossFire!"

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
