Mushkin Blackline 997123R 16GB Review
     Wed, Oct 09 2013 | 9:42A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Many people stick with one brand or another based on personal experience or a recommendation from a friend. Over the years, Mushkin has earned the trust and loyalty of many users with its commitment to quality by hand-testing each set of modules and delivering great customer service, not to mention a product that just works; when it doesn`t, the lifetime warranty is there to soften the blow. Priced at $139, the 997123R 16GB Blackline modules are the lowest priced 2400MHz kit on Newegg at the time of this writing, presenting some incredible value for your money."

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."

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."

ADATA XPG V2 RAM DDR3-2400 8GB Memory Kit Review
     Thu, Oct 03 2013 | 11:45A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Some of the most difficult to answer questions in the enthusiast and high-end gaming PC world have to do with RAM, and more specifically with RAM clock speeds, latency, and timings. What differences do all of these make when it comes to better performance and higher frame rates in games? Typically, the answer is that they do very little when it comes to games. AMD has sought to change that answer with the release of their Richland series APUs, which are designed to take even more advantage of RAM speeds and support up to 2133MHz clock speeds. Intel?s Haswell now supports speeds of up to 1600MHz. Now that more is being done to increase the performance gain from higher RAM speeds, let?s take a look at the results. Here at Benchmark Reviews, we have a couple of new high-speed RAM kits to review. In this article, we will be taking a look at the ADATA XPG V2 4GBx2 DDR3-2400 PC19200 AX3U2400W4G11 DRAM Kit."

ADATA XPG V2 Series 2400MHz DDR3 Memory Kit Review @HiTech Legion
     Wed, Oct 02 2013 | 10:03A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ADATA`s newest RAM, the XPG V2 2400MHz DDR3 is certainly evidence of the beauty that RAM can take on. The XPG V2 PC3-19200 2400MHz RAM is a fairly unique looking memory module. The large fins (heat spreaders) that span the top of each module really make it a striking part of your rig. ADATA uses an extruded heat sink and a 2oz. double copper PCB. The heat spreaders remain within the bounds of the RAM module itself, so length is no issue. /"

Mushkin 996996 8GB DDR3 2133Mhz Review
     Wed, Oct 02 2013 | 9:01A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Try as I might there is nothing I have to say bad about this set of Redline modules from Mushkin. The modules perform just as well as I expected them to do based on using these as part of the OCC test bed back during the heyday of the P67/Z68 chipsets, where the modules performed well when paired with an Intel Core i7 2600K or even with the Third Generation Core i7 3770K. Overclocking was just as I remembered and fairly robust with a 200MHz boost in speed achieved with just a bit of tuning time. The boost in speed did not come with the serious drop in performance that I have seen with some of the modules I have tested as the speeds increase and the timings get looser."

Crucial Ballistix Sport XT DDR3-1866 16GB Memory Kit Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Sun, Sep 29 2013 | 10:12A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Crucial has recently added a new line to their Ballistix Series of enthusiast memory. The Ballistix Sport XT is part of Ballistix Sport series and Crucial has aimed this kits specifically at gamers. Crucial has improved the heat spreader by making it larger, which gives it more surface area for better heat dissipation. Sport XT modules run at speeds all the way up to 1866 MHz and are available in 4GB and 8GB densities. Today we are going to be taking a look at the BLS4K4G3D18ADS3 kit, which is a 16 GB (44 GB) kit that runs at 1866 MHz with timings of 10-10-10-30 at 1.5v. Lets put this memory to the test and see it is worth getting for your next build!"

Corsair Vengeance Pro DDR3 2666MHz 16GB Review
     Fri, Sep 27 2013 | 10:12A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overclocking the Vengeance Pro modules provided some added lift in the performance numbers while maintaining the stock timings of 11-13-13 with only an adjustment needed on the TRAS to 35 along with the prerequisite bump in voltage to 1.75v. Keeping the voltage static at 1.65v would not allow a boot even with looser timings, even up to 13-15-15-35 at 2800MHz, the next divider up from 2666MHz. The maximum clock speed I could pull out of these modules was just over 2900MHz using 1.75v and timings of 12-13-13-35. Any higher than that the performance drop off was not worth the effort for day to day use but would look great in screen shots."

SuperTalent USB 3.0 Express Dram Disk Review
     Thu, Sep 26 2013 | 9:04A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For the first time for as long as I can remember, I am sitting here stunned at what I just learned, and experienced, in new technology. Just as I could use words such as amazing, unbelievable and remarkable to describe the Super Talent Dram Disk, I could also guarantee your amazement by letting you in on the fact that ST Dram Disk`s PCMark Vantage results brought in a Total Point Score of 851915 and a top transfer speed of 5007MB/s while conducting tests. Not believing this, we decided to transfer a 2.5GB 1080P video file to measure transfer speeds and it couldn`t be done as this file was transferred in tenth`s of a second, if not faster. Do we have your attention yet?"

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.
