OCZ Vertex 450 128GB Solid State Drive RAID Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Wed, Oct 23 2013 | 2:05A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OCZs Vertex line of solid state drives have been around for a while and we have reviewed many different Vertex drives over the past few years. If you remember back in 2011 OCZ acquired Indilinx and with the acquisition they were able to create an SSD controller completely in-house. The controller was the Barefoot 3 and it was featured on OCZs Vector solid state drive that we reviewed earlier this year. Well OCZ is back with a new drive in their Vertex 450. It will feature the same Barefoot 3 controller, and new 20nm MLC NAND instead of the 25nm that was being used on the Vector. Today we are taking a look at the 128GB version of the Vertex 450 that features sequential read and write speeds of 525 MB/s and 290 MB/s respectively. Not only that OCZ has sent us two drives so we can show you just how fast these drives are when put in a RAID array together. Read on as we take a look"

Raidmax Vampire Gaming Tower @ Pro-Clockers
     Tue, Oct 22 2013 | 1:11P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Banish thoughts of sparkling tween idols mooning over one another under the full light of the sun. Real vampires are twistedly handsome Gothic corpses that invoke fear and dread with a touch of dark eroticism. The Vampire case from Raidmax conjures images of Gothic castles with its black rounded edges and sweeping elegant front panel. While not directly copying the architectural style, the Vampire is an attractive case that is built well from the ground up."

Posted by: STAFF
Finding the good in a failed product can be difficult at the time but in hindsight, it’s those same products that often serve as precursors to existing technology. In this article, we will be profiling nine such ideas that were conceived and brought to market well before their time. While some weren’t exactly failures, most were – and all are responsible for playing a role in current devices or services that make our lives more comfortable and enjoyable.

Silicon Power Armor A30 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive
     Tue, Oct 22 2013 | 11:20A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I`ve always believed that having an excessive amount of free HDD space available around is always a lot better than to need it and not have it so whenever someone comes up to me and tells me that he/she plans on purchasing a new model to replace the old and smaller one i always say to also keep the old one either as a secondary drive or as an external backup drive even if they think there`s no point in doing that. That being said when it comes to portable needs most people will never even fully utilize a 500GB portable hard drive but there are quite a few people that will do so and to them a 1TB PHD is really a one way. Capacity however is not the only important thing when we`re talking about portable hard drives, the enclosure also pays a significant role since it`s responsible for the health of the drive inside so it`s always preferable to choose one of the rugged models that offer superior protection. The Armor A30 by Silicon Power is the latest addition in their Armor line of PHDs and today we will be taking a thorough look at it."

Cooler Master V850 850W Modular Power Supply Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Tue, Oct 22 2013 | 9:42A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When developing the V-Series power supplies Cooler Master had one thing in mind. They wanted their name to be what you thought of when you were looking to buy a new power supply or upgrade your current one. The V-Series design is based on a brand new platform that makes use of Japanese capacitors, most of them solid capacitors, as well as a high quality 42 mm transformer. This means the power supply will have outstanding efficiency and stability. Today we are taking a look at the V850 which features a single 12V rail, an 80PLUS Gold certification, a silent 135mm fan and an all modular design. Read on as we take a look"
