Kingston has been in the memory business for as long as we can remember. Today we have the newest in the Kingston HyperX Extreme performance line with the HyperX Predator memory. New heatspreader and extraordinarily high speeds make this kit an enthusiasts dream. Now lets take a look further and see if dreams meet reality."
What Corsair has to offer with this set of modules is a kit that will run with the best kits out on the market at stock speeds yet offers the ability to really push the limits of your CPU`s memory controller when it comes time to overclock them for added performance margins. Top that off with a unique industrial look and the ability to use the light bar feature to customize the modules and you have a kit that delivers excellent performance while looking great. At 2133Mhz, the Dominator Platinum modules are by no means a slow kit. Overclocking yielded a 15% boost in clock speed to 2481Mhz using timings of 9-12-11-30 and 1.695v. A pretty decent boost all the while running Cas 9 at close to 2500Mhz."
Not that long ago we took a look at Crucials Ballistix Elite memory and new we are back with the Ballistix Tactical Tracer Memory. Crucials Ballistix Tactical memory sits in the middle of the Ballistix line between the Ballistix Sport and the Ballistix Elite. Geared towards gamers the Ballistix Tactical Tracer memory features a very cool heatspreader, activity-indicating LEDs on the top edge, ground-effect LEDs along the bottom and temperature sensors that you can monitor with Crucials M.O.D. software. The kit we are taking a look at today is made up of 4 BLT4G3D1869DT2TXOB 4GB modules. So that gives us a 16GB kit running at 1866Mhz with timings of 9-9-9-27 at 1.5v. Is this the kit you want in your gaming rig? Read on to find out!"
There used to be a time when the only ultra-portable storage needs most people had could be easily covered with just a mere 2-4GB USB Flash Drive but much like most things related to technology that changed and now most people carry at least 16GB capacity drives with them at all times. Personally ever since i can remember Ive always carried a USB flash drive with my keychain and most of the times that used to be an rugged version to ensure i had the best possible data protection against harsh conditions. Unfortunately compared to roughly 3-4 years ago not many manufacturers make rugged USB 3.0 flash drives any more (not really durable ones anyway) and the ones that do only release slow models. Well Kingston takes a different approach and after their already perfect HyperX USB 3.0 flash drive (partially rugged) they have just now released the DT R3.0 USB 3.0 flash drive line (the initials stand for DataTraveler Rugged 3.0) from which we have the 64GB variant here with us."
So youre on the hunt for a new memory kit, and whilst you know that lower = better.. you dont exactly know why. You may even know the name CAS Latency .. but what is that, exactly? Why is it better to have CL8 over CL10? What are all these other numbers? What do the abbreviations mean? Why is it all so complicated!? Oh, and why do I care? Well.. read on, find out, and rejoice! Im here to save the day."
The new Dominators boast new heat spreaders and newer ICs that should result in some nice performance. The series consist of kits ranging from 8GB to 64GB with frequencies from 1600MHz to an incredible hand-tested 2666MHz. We got our hot little hands on a 8GB kit of 1866MHz modules, so we are excited to get to the test phase of this review."
