Kingston HyperX Predator 16GB 2400MHz Quad Channel Kit
     Fri, Oct 25 2013 | 11:45A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As we all know when choosing the right hardware components for a new system people tend to prioritize their significance based on their needs so although gamers always put extra weight on the graphics card so they can play all the latest game titles professionals do so on the CPU and the memory modules in order to have the best response times when using heavy applications and thus do their jobs more efficiently. However although memory modules don`t play the most crucial role when it comes to gaming still no one can deny that they do help and because of that all the leading manufacturers are aiming to release the fastest DDR3 kits possible. Last time we had the chance to test the latest HyperX 10th Anniversary 16GB 2400MHz CL11 Quad Channel memory kit by Kingston which is without doubt amongst the best ones currently available for Intel X79 based mainboards. However it`s not the only 2400MHz kit in the Kingston line of products and so today we decided to take a closer look at two of their HyperX Predator KHX24C11T2K2/8X 8GB 2400MHz CL11 Dual Channel memory kits strapped onto our X79 test rig."

Patriot SuperSonic Magnum 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive
     Thu, Oct 24 2013 | 9:18A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Have you ever had the feeling that no matter how much available space you carry around with you it`s just never enough when the time comes to actually put it to good use? Well to be entirely honest i have felt that quite a few times in my life but what`s really even more annoying is to have plenty of available storage space with you only to find out that there`s not enough speed to make use of it all in the time window that you have. The introduction of USB 3.0 a few years back was a step towards the right direction since in theory it`s up to 10 times faster than the older USB 2.0 but to date with the exception of portable SSDs there aren`t really many storage related media that come even close to its possible data transfer speeds and that includes the majority of USB 3.0 compatible flash drives in the market. Well Patriot Memory wants to change or at least improve on that and so their latest SuperSonic Magnum USB 3.0 Flash Drive line doesn`t only offer capacities up to 256GB but it`s also pretty much as fast as it gets (at least currently)."

     Sun, Oct 20 2013 | 11:36A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Patriot has been making memory for quite some time and their Viper series has been around for a while. Now on its third revision the Viper 3 Series offers dual and quad channel kits in 8 GB, 16 GB and 32 GB capacities with speeds ranging from 1600 MHz all the way up to 2400 MHz. All of these kits are tested to work with both AMD and Intel systems and are ready to handle what you can throw at them. Today we will be taking a look at the PV38G240C0K kit, which is a 8 GB (2x4GB) kit that has a speed of 2400 MHz with timings of 10-12-12-30 at 1.65v. With its sleek heatspreaders and high speeds will the Patriot Viper 3 kit make it into your next build? Read on as we take a look"

Kingston's Fastest Ever SSD? SSDNow V300 240GB Benchmarked
     Wed, Oct 16 2013 | 3:55P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Looking at the numbers, Kingston's SSDnow V300 SSD is spec'd for 4KB random reads at 85,000 IOPS and 4KB random writes at 43,000 IOPS. The SSDNow V300 drive supports SMART, NCQ, and TRIM. Peak power consumption is rated at 2.052W, idle is a scant 64mW; this puppy can certainly help extend notebook battery life if you're considering an SSD to replace a 2.5" HDD. The 1.0 million hours MTBF rating Kingston assign to the SSDnow V300 is lower than other SSDs PCSTATS have tested (average is 1.2M - 2M hrs MTBF). The drive is backed by a 3 year limited warranty."

Patriot Viper III 2400MHz Black Mamba
     Fri, Oct 11 2013 | 11:45A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Patriot has been in the market for a long time but it is the lesser known little brother in the memory game. However this has not kept them from making some very cool memory models among other devices such as USB flash drives, mobile wireless storage and even a Android powered set top box and im sure many more things I cannot even think of right now. But without getting too crazy off topic what we are looking at today is their model from the Viper III series labeled Black Mamba which is very nice looking sticks with aggressive heatspreaders and a very aggressive speed/timing configuration. Being named Black Mamba I could only assume means to assert the aggressive and deadly power these sticks hold within."

Gskill F3-2666C11D-8GTXD 2666MHz Dual Channel
     Thu, Oct 10 2013 | 11:45A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gskill has been a popular memory provider for some time and their innovation along with work with high end overclockers helps push them to even more popularity as their memory can be seen at some tof the top benchmarks records in the world. Also the recent Computex show Gskill had a booth setup with overclocking pretty much the entire time with LN2 powered rigs all running Gskill memory just pushing for overclocking world records. The kit we have today is a TridentX model like we have seen before but this model is binned at 2666MHz at nice timings to make for a very capable kit for Z77 based platforms. However being that this kit will be tested on the new Haswell system we will see how it performs on this entirely new platform."

     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. /"
