G.Skill Trident X 2400MHz Review
     Wed, Jun 06 2012 | 9:01A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Performance-wise, the Trident X modules deliver performance indicative of the latencies and clock speed they run at. Against lower rated modules, the Trident X modules deliver higher bandwidth and ultimately a higher level of performance across just about every test run. Overclocking delivered measurable performance increases over the baseline results, as expected. When it came to overclocking, I was able to pull another 100MHz from the already high 2400MHz, to reach just over 2500MHz, while tightening up the TRFC slightly."

SSD NEWS: SSD Migration or Fresh System Installation - An SSD Primer
     Tue, Jun 05 2012 | 9:11A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the first challenges new SSD users face is whether to migrate the system in place or to consider a fresh OS installation where one might `start from scratch`. In many cases, users have several years invested in their system whereas, with others, the security of a fresh installation is a major step towards SSD happiness. The choice of SSD migration may seem the simplest answer but users should be aware that things may not go as planned, thus mandating a fresh install in any case. This article is intended to provide a brief overview of system migration and some of the difficulties that may be encountered, as well as providing an alternative and comparison in completing a fresh OS installation with your new SSD."

PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
