GSkill RipjawsX 32GB 2133MHz DDR3 review
     Sat, Apr 14 2012 | 10:18A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the GSkill RipjawsX 32GB 2133MHz DDR3 memory kit. That`s right, a 32GB kit. This 4x 8GB kit can be set at 2133 MHz CAS9 with just the flick of an XMP switch in the BIOS. The end results will be very interesting, our test suite software will be run of the mill, we`ll simply take all standard PC configurations and processors and compare this memory seated on a Core i7 2600K / Z68 chipset setup and evaluate it to the baseline performance of other chipsets/processors and their respective reference baseline performance.

AMD Performance Edition 8GB Memory Review
     Thu, Apr 12 2012 | 12:09P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I led off by expressing surprise that with all that AMD has going on in its agenda to get back in the game that the company would get into the memory business. It does appear that AMD has found a good partner in Patriot. Patriot has been manufacturing some of my favorite sticks for a few years now and certainly have the experience to bring component specific performance to the table. While I did not get the technical answers I am curious about regarding why these AMD branded modules will work better with AMD components, it appears that they may do just that. They seemed stronger in some areas, and were definitely `plug-n-play` in my system finding the advertised speeds, timings, and voltages upon turning on the machine without messing around in the BIOS. They also ended up reaching a higher overclock (albeit slight) than the others as well. Again keep in mind that this is a representation of how the Performance Edition performed on my all-AMD machine. There may be more in way of optimizations to be had in other configurations."

Kingston DataTraveler HyperX 3.0 64GB
     Thu, Apr 12 2012 | 9:00A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Devices such as the Patriot Supersonic and the Supersonic Magnum have been at the top of the food chain for some time. So does the new DataTraveler HyperX 3.0 do anything to change this? Starting at $125 for the 64GB model it is already more expensive than the Supersonic Magnum which costs just $100 for the 64GB model.

Kingston Wi-Drive @ LanOC Reviews
     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 9:46A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I remember, early last year, thinking to myself; Self, it would be totally awesome if they made an external hard drive that was battery operated and could connect to a WiFi network. No more USB cables! Well, that time has arrived with several new products that have recently hit the market. Today, I would like to take a look at the Kingston Wi-Drive 16GB unit and see how it works, and more importantly, is it worth the money."

Install Windows 8 From a USB Flash Drive @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 9:40A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Windows 8, it seems like we have been hearing a lot about it over the past couple of months. Recently Microsoft has released the consumer preview, which is free to download so you can try out the new operating system before it ships. If you have ever installed any Windows operating system from a CD or DVD you know it can be very time consuming. Why not speed up the process by installing the operating system using a USB flash drive. In this article we will show you how to take the Window 8 ISO and put it on a flash drive for fast and easy installation."

ideal amount of memory for Intel X79 Platform?
     Thu, Apr 05 2012 | 6:35P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"While setting up Gigabyte's latest Intel X79 motherboard on the PCSTATS test bench a few week ago, we found ourselves wondering; "what's the ideal amount of memory to use in a Intel Core i7 3820 'Sandy Bridge-E' platform these days?" Obviously, with a 32-bit Windows 7 OS we'd be limited to 4GB of system memory, but what's the magic number for Windows 7 64-bit?"

Kingston HyperX Genesis 16GB 2133MHz Quad Channel Kit
     Thu, Apr 05 2012 | 12:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Many of you know that up until 5-6 months ago my favorite testing platform was the LGA1366 by Intel which was also the only platform with triple channel DDR3 support, something that played a huge part in my choice. Besides that's also why 3 out of my 4 test rigs featured Intel Core i7-920 (Bloomfield) CPUs each paired with 12GB of RAM (3x4GB). However all things come to an end eventually, especially when it comes to all things related with technology and so the launch of the latest Intel LGA2011 platform signified the upgrade of my primary test system. It did take a while until i finally managed to get the 2nd revision of the Core i7-3930k (Sandy Bridge-E) CPU to build the system but since that happened I’ve been putting all the latest Quad channel memory kits to hit the market through various tests to see just how good the new platform really is. So the very first Quad Channel DDR3 kit review to upload is about the latest and fastest Quad Kit manufactured by Kingston currently, the HyperX Genesis 16GB Kit running at 2133MHz with a CAS Latency of 11 (khx2133c11d3k4/16gx).

latest Corsair Dominator GT Kit
     Wed, Apr 04 2012 | 9:27P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ile last year was the push for higher frequencies netting us outrageous 2600 MHz kits, this year is primed to be the year of capacity. As the standard capacity of any gaming or enthusiast platform increases from 8GB to 16GB and larger, we will start to see even higher density kits released. Today we look at one such kit, the Corsair Dominator GT 32GB Kit.

OCZ Technology Vertex 4 (Indilinx Everest 2) 256GB and 512GB SSD Review
     Wed, Apr 04 2012 | 9:17A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I find OCZ`s current situation similar to the early 1990`s 49ers. OCZ had a very good run with SandForce, winning best consumer SSD awards with both the Vertex 2 and a year later with Vertex 3. Just like Joe, the SandForce SF-2000 series is starting to look a little older and the young competition from other makers is starting to catch up. SandForce might offer the fastest controller to date, but that might not be the case starting next season. Before Steve Young was traded to the 49ers he played in Tampa Bay. There he had two horrible seasons, but everyone could see the talent including 49ers head coach Bill Walsh. Indilinx, in their later years as a separate company was not competitive with controllers from Intel and Samsung. In a sense OCZ traded to pick up Indilinx, mainly their RAM and peripherals product lines (they were actually just dropped). In their yearly product cycle OCZ was ready to release something new, something fresh, but their star quarterback SandForce was injured. OCZ had already released an impressive top to bottom lineup of products based on the SandForce technology so there weren`t any gaps to fill with SandForce based products."

Corsair Vengeance M90 Performance MMO and RTS Gaming Mouse Review
     Mon, Apr 02 2012 | 8:08A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since the inception of the first point and click device for computers, there has been someone sitting in a corner thinking to themselves what can I do to make this better and more useful? Over many years of evolution we went from mice with just one button on them, to mice with a pair of buttons and a scroll wheel. For many users this is more than enough to deal with as far as their point and click needs go for emails or finding a recipe for Peking duck for the next family gathering. For me, I prefer a mouse to have as many buttons on it as comfortably possible. By this I mean that if given enough buttons to my mice, I prefer to set my gun swap there, grenades, knife, even the push to talk for whatever application I am on at the time I am gaming. The latter part is the biggest concern to me and that is giving me what I want in options without having an odd shape or having to contort my hands in painful ways to utilize all of the buttons. Corsair matches the K90 keyboard we just looked at with a gaming mate in the Vengeance series. This compatriot in action will allow users to not only have functionality for MMO and RTS games, but the ability it offers the FPS gamers isn`t so shabby either. In the evolution of mice, a lot of us prefer a page forward, page back and selectable DPI on the fly is also something that most of us are getting used to by now. What most of us aren`t used to in mice is the sleek and attractive package that this newest submission has incorporated into this design from Corsair. Things like an aluminum frame and the blue and white LEDs are things that lend it to be the perfect mate to sit alongside the K90 as you will soon see for yourself."

G.Skill Ripjaws X F3 2133C9Q-32GXH Review
     Thu, Mar 29 2012 | 11:22P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The X Series heat shields do an excellent job of dissipating the thermal load of these modules. Not that there is a significant thermal load when running at 1.6v, but they are there for the times you want to get a bit adventurous with the voltages and overclocking. Overclocking margins are not what I was looking for, but nevertheless, I was able to pull an extra 100+ MHz or 5.5% out of the modules that generated a nice boost in performance across the test suite. The modules look great and will fit into just about any build."

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