Kingston 10th Anniversary HyperX 16GB 2400MHz Review
     Sat, Oct 05 2013 | 6:21P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
During my testing I found that while the kit ran flawlessly at its rated speed of 2400MHz, they just did not offer a whole lot of headroom above that, even when pushing 1.75v+ through them. Seeing how running a 125MHz or 166MHz strap is a bit easier on the memory controller, I swapped to the 125MHz divider and started upping the frequency up a little at a time until reaching the maximum clock speed on the HyperX modules. I left the memory sub timings alone and controlled by the board, adjusted the primary timings to 12-13-13-33, adjusted the DRAM voltage to 1.70v, started up again, and finally reached 1260.2MHz or just over 2520MHz for a 120MHz gain in clock speed. That represents about a 5% gain from just testing and tweaking. What I found was that the Kingston HyperX 10th Anniversary modules performed well even with the boosted clock speed. The low profile heat sink makes sure there are no restrictions to the CPU cooling solution used."

How to Overclock an Intel 4770K Guide
     Sat, Oct 05 2013 | 12:52P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel C-State allows for the CPU to lower its current frequency along with voltage. C-States vary from C0 (Operating state) down to Haswell`s new C6/C7 in which the CPU is in sleep/hibernation. By default all motherboards will have this enabled typically under the title Intel-C-State. When C-State is set to C0, the CPU will not drop voltage or frequency. This can be helpful to establish an overclock if running into stability problems. While I noticed zero negative impact on the Haswell, please be aware that using CPU Voltage Override along with enabling C-State may cause the voltage to stay constant when the CPU frequency drops. Once again this did not happen for me but with some motherboards this can be an issue. The solution is to use CPU Voltage Offset instead or disable C-State completely."

G.Skill Trident-X 2x4GB DDR3-2666 CL11 1.65V Review @ Ocaholic
     Sat, Oct 05 2013 | 10:12A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As it usually happens, when a first batch of new architecture CPUs rolls out of the factory, memory manufacturers are already there blazing with refreshed products to come by. However, it does not automatically eliminate the older models out of the market. As such, the DDR3-2666 CL11 version of G.Skills Trident-X is still interesting enough for us to test more than a year after its original release."

Corsair Carbide 330R Review
     Fri, Oct 04 2013 | 6:21P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Under Idle the 330R did not surprise me at all being able to keep low temps. During load, the chassis did a great job at keeping temps within reason. In fact both the Raven RV02 and RaidMax Agusta have three more fans (total of five) while the Corsair 330R only has two included. The temperatures above show how good this chassis is under load! Anyone looking for high airflow and relatively quiet fans will be hard pressed to choose a better midt ower when the competition is full towers. With the ability to add three more fans, the 330R will be able to handle even the hottest days. Just remember once you add top mounted fans, the quiet aspect of this chassis loses its effect. Ultimately defeating the propose of paying premium for the quiet feature."

X2 6018B MOD Series chassis
     Fri, Oct 04 2013 | 1:17P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Most enthusiasts, professionals and hardcore gamers i happen to know prefer to house their systems inside the largest PC Cases possible for a variety of reasons (spacious interiors is the most significant one obviously) something that i also prefer to do myself. However although people may want to house a system inside a large PC case that`s not always possible due to space limitations and so just like a friend told me recently the only possible choice is to pick one of the smaller midi tower PC cases. These may not share the same features and spacious interiors as the larger Full and HPTX towers but we`ve seen quite a few interesting models from time to time that even we ourselves would use if we ever came upon any kind of space restrictions. Well since we are falling back slightly with our PC case reviews today on our test bench we have one of the latest midi towers to hit the market the 6018B MOD Series Chassis which is manufactured by X2 a subsidiary of the well-known Spire."

ASUS Z87-Deluxe/Dual LGA1150 Intel Motherboard Review

How many new features can you cram onto a motherboard that are both useful and innovative? ASUS is the expert at doing this, and their history of innovations is long: the custom EPU and TPU processors; intelligent fan control, the ability to update your BIOS on a board with no CPU and RAM installed, and so forth. The Z87-Deluxe/Dual LGA1150 motherboard shows that ASUS is not content to rest on its laurels. With new features like Near Field Communications and 802.11ac support, this motherboard has it all."
