Samsung 840 Series 250GB SSD Review @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Nov 21 2012 | 9:22A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 840 Series drive comes loaded with TLC NAND - the first one of its kind. As such, its performance is more modest than that of some enthusiast level drives in the writes arena but darn good in reads which, if you had to choose, would be where you`d want to see your top speeds. We found it to be a very consistent performer and no slouch when it comes to real world tasks thanks in part to their 300Mhz triple core controller. Reads were consistently in the vicinity of the 530MB/s mark and writes near 240MB/s..."

Mushkin Chronos Deluxe 7mm 240 GB @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Nov 21 2012 | 8:33A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
To say its been a while since we have taken a look at a Mushkin SSD would be an understatement. The last time we took a look at one of their SSDs it was a SATA 2 drive. Things have moved on to bigger, cheaper, and faster things. Mushkin recently introduced their 7mm version of the Chronos Deluxe, a SATA 3 based SSD with advertised transfer speeds of up to 560MB/sec read and IOPS of 90,000. With numbers like that, I had to get my hands on it to see how it performed. How will it compare to all of the other drives with similar advertised performance numbers? Will this be your next SSD?"

ASUS GeForce GTX 660 DirectCU II OC Edition Video Card Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Wed, Nov 21 2012 | 8:29A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back in August NVIDIA released the GTX 660 Ti, which came in around the $300 price range. Performance on the card was great, but not everyone has $300 to spend on a video card. So NVIDIA released the GTX 660, which hits your wallet around $200-$250, but still offers great performance and lower power consumption. Today we are checking out one of ASUSs GTX 660 variants, the GeForce GTX 660 DirectCU II OC Edition. This card features ASUSs DirectCU II cooling, which ASUS says provides 20% better cooling performance than a stock cooler. This is also the Overclocked (OC) edition of the card. That means the GPU clock is set to 1020 MHz (1085 MHz boost clock) over the stock settings of 980 MHz. You also get ASUSs DIGI+VRM power delivery design which enhances power efficiency by 15% and minimizes power noise by 30%. Are you in the market for a GTX 660? Is this the one for you? Read on to find out!"

Kingston HyperX Predator 16GB 1866MHz DDR3 Review @ Vortez
     Wed, Nov 21 2012 | 6:55A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It is one such product we have for review today. The aptly named Predator kit hopes to hunt down the best memory kits out there, rip them to shreds and move on to its next victim. You would therefore believe that the Predator was incredibly expensive. You would however be wrong in this assumption because thanks to the plummet in memory IC pricing, buying a top end memory kit is now within reach of us all. With this in mind we have chosen to deliver this review now, when memory prices are rock bottom to give you the low down on whether the Predator kit is worth hunting down or one to be evaded.

Icy Dock MB153SP-B FatCage 3-in-2 SATA Backplane Module @ Hi Tech Legion
     Tue, Nov 20 2012 | 11:07P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Icy Dock FatCage MB153SP-B is a 3-in-2 internal SATA HDD cage that was designed to save space inside a chassis. The Icy Dock FatCage 3-in-2 SATA device is also designed to save time through a simplified mounting mechanism which is interchangeable with ten other Icy Dock internal and external storage items. To keep temperature levels optimal, Icy Dock has outfitted the FatCage series backplane modules with an 80mm cooling fan which actively cools the drives inside. The durable metal frame of the MB153SP FatCage is not only designed for durability, it also dissipates the heat emitted by the drives installed. The Icy Dock MB153SP FatCage only requires two 15-pin SATA power connectors to fully operate three drives and the active cooling fan, saving overall power. For those worried about thermal conditions, especially when installing inside compared to typical HDD cages."

On my bench here today I have the 550W ST55F-G model."

A Futurelooks News Flash - Patriot Memory Gauntlet Node and Node 320 Portable Wireless Enclosures Reviewed
     Tue, Nov 20 2012 | 7:25P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Patriot Memory Gauntlet Node and Node 320 Portable Wireless Enclosures Reviewed* There are so many portable devices out there from smartphones to tablets. One limitation that many of us are starting to run into, even with the limitless expansion of the cloud is physical storage space for our photos, cat videos and files. But what do you do when you continually have files so large, that space continues to be an issue? Or, more simply to the point, what if you just like keeping files on something else but would like a simple way to access them without having to suck up the data on your wireless plan through the cloud?

News: Enter to win a Radeon HD 7770 CrossFire team and game bundle
     Tue, Nov 20 2012 | 4:28P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Well, this should be fun. The folks at AMD offered us some Radeon video cards and games to give away to TR readers. Naturally, we jumped at the chance. We`ll have several sets of cards and games to give away over the next few weeks, if all goes as planned. Up first is a pair of Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB cards made by HIS, along with copies of Far Cry 3 and Hitman: Absolution. "
