Patriot Viper Xtreme & Gamer 2 DDR3 Memory
     Tue, Aug 23 2011 | 12:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
when testing we found that the relaxed CL10 timing of the Ballistix Sport memory made it much slower than the Patriot Gamer 2 memory which uses CL8 timing. Therefore in short we believe that the Patriot Gamer 2 is the best value DDR3-1600 memory money can buy and in fact we would go as far as to say it’s the best value 8GB DDR3 memory kit available period.

Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 Gen 2 32GB Flash Drive Review
     Mon, Aug 22 2011 | 9:02A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Back in Q2 2011 the marketing team over at Kingston Technology announced that the company had begun shipping its first second generation of USB 3.0 enabled DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 Flash drives. These drives take advantage of the latest USB 3.0 technology that has up to ten times the data transfer rates of the current USB 2.0 specification. The original DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 Flash was rated as having read speeds of up to 80MB/s and a write speeds of up to 60MB/s. This Flash drive was quick, but since it was released in September 2010 speeds of available USB 3.0 host controllers and NAND Flash have improved in terms of performance and pricing. The Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 Gen 2 improves upon the original performance numbers and the new Gen 2 drive series is now rated as having up to 100MB/s read and 80MB/s write speeds..."

Posted by: STAFF
It's time to check USB 3.0 stick storage ! Patriot Memory recently released a USB stick, all 3.0 compatible and it's called the SuperSpeed Magnum. That surely hints towards a nice caliber. We test the 64GB version of this model, and their Magnum .. well it's the fastest and most l33t little fracker your money can get you with read performance of 200 MB/sec.

Kingston HyperX PnP KHX1600C9S3P1K2/8G 2x4GB DDR3 SODIMM
     Mon, Aug 15 2011 | 3:26P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Have you ever wondered why men are, in fact, better than women at things like math and science? Have you ever wondered why women are, in fact, inferior to men at things like driving a car? Before you start arguing with me -- safely assuming you are female -- of how you have had enough of these stereotypes, let me start you off with some facts. The fact is the inferior parietal lobule (IPL) in men are significantly larger than it is in women. In fact, the physical size of this brain region in the cortex is highly correlated to a person's mental mathematical capabilities, ability to rotate three-dimensional geometric figures in their head, and perception of space, time, and speed. It is just the way things are -- a fact. In the same way, have you ever wondered why desktop computer components are usually more powerful than its laptop counterparts? As with the last example, this is not a stereotype; it is a fact desktop computer components have much more relaxed size, power, and thermal requirements. This very flexibility allows desktops to show off more number crunching muscles than its mobile cousins. When we introduced to you the Kingston HyperX Grey Series DDR3-1600 2x4GB dual channel kit earlier this summer, the original manufacturer of high performance PC enthusiast memory has something that is good, but not exactly outstanding against the competition. On the other hand, if you place it under a shrink ray, and resize it to SODIMM dimensions, does it make all the difference? Let's look at what kind of facts we have in store with Kingston's HyperX PnP KHX1600C9S3P1K2/8G 2x4GB: The DDR3-1600 SODIMM set from Kingston HyperX that works at full speed right out of the box with virtually any modern laptop. More facts: Heatspreaders are included.

Patriot Viper Xtreme Series DDR3 PC-12800 1600Mhz 4GB Memory Kit
     Sun, Aug 14 2011 | 4:02P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
RAM today is one of the cheapest ways to give your computer a performance upgrade. With the average price for a 2GB stick of DDR3 being around 20.00 people looking for a way to boost up their computer will often find RAM. Often though people are unsure of what model to get, or they will buy really cheap RAM and it doesn't preform like it should. This is where reviews are handy as you get to see what the product is like before you get it. Today we have the Patriot Viper Xtreme series DDR3 RAM to review for you so you can make an informed decision about what RAM upgrade you buy.

Patriot LX Series SDXC 64GB Flash Memory Review
     Fri, Aug 12 2011 | 4:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are some hobbies you should never get into. Ever since I got my first digital camera in Grade 6 that cost me a life savings to buy, I was hooked on photography ever since. (That was back when film cameras were still the standard, and if you owned a 1.3 megapixel digital camera, that was quite the baller thing to have.) Many years have passed, and many more life savings later, it is interesting to see how far we have come. I am not talking about me having a flash that costs more than several compact point-and-zooms combined, and lenses that are worth more than my friends` cars, but simply the performance and amazing amount of features found on modern dSLRs. If you told someone ten years ago that a digital camera can produce photo-quality prints at over 18 x 12, and make better videos than a high end consumer camcorder, you probably would have been laughed at for more than a few minutes. Nowadays, it is just how things are. Unfortunately, with all the big megapixels and 1080p videos -- not saying sensor resolution and image quality are directly related or anything -- your once massive 8GB SDHC card from 2008 is no longer as massive as you have once thought. That`s not to mention shooting in 1080p will require not only a big card, but also a fast card. So if 8GB is no longer considered uber, and anything less than Class 6 won`t do the job, what should aspiring videographers and RAW shooters look into? Try a 64GB -- yes, sixty four gigabytes -- SDXC Class 10 card from Patriot Memory."

G.Skill RipjawsZ PC3-14900 16GB Kit Review
     Fri, Aug 12 2011 | 2:30P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I really liked the new G.Skil RipjawsZ PC3-17000 16GB Kit we looked at during the launch of the new X79 platform from Intel. Priced at $179.99 US, it also hits at a pretty good price point, if you`re looking at trying to keep it under the $150 US mark, though, and you figure that you don`t need RAM that goes into the 2000MHz+ DDR realm, we might have the G.Skill kit for you today. Moving in, you can see we`re dealing with a PC3-14900 kit which as you can see below, the model number translates to 1866MHz DDR. Next to that we can see the timings come in at 9-10-9-28-1T using the lower voltage option of 1.5v. As for the amount of RAM we`re dealing with, you can also see on the same sticker that the Quad Channel kit consists of four 4GB modules to give us a grand total of 16GB."

G.Skill the makers of some of the most sort after memory on the planet was kind enough to send over a version of their low voltage memory kits aimed at the Cougar Point chipset.

Kingston HyperX H2O 4GB 2133MHz DDR3 CL9 Memory Kit Review
     Tue, Aug 09 2011 | 9:00A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sick looks and integrated water cooling top off this special H2O edition from Kingston with their HyperX 4GB 2133MHz kit. Legit Reviews pushes the Kingston HyperX H2O 2133Mhz memory kit in our Sandy Bridge test bench to see if there is any more juice that can be squeezed out of it and we will show you how this DDR3 memory kit stacks up to some run of the mill 1600MHz memory. "A nice feature that Kingston has with the HyperX H2O 2133MHz DDR3 memory kits is dual XMP profiles. The first profile for this kit is 2000Mhz at 9-11-9-27 timings and the second profile is at 2133Mhz also at 9-11-9-27 timings. The reason for the two profile combination is to help those that do not have unlocked processors achieve great performance while maintaining stability. Since my test bench has an unlocked Intel Core i5-2500K 'Sandy Bridge' processor I was able to utilize the faster 133Mhz profile and boot the system with no problem..."

Kingston HyperX T1 12GB (3 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 CL9 Memory Kit Review
     Fri, Aug 05 2011 | 4:24P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Long standing top flight memory manufacturer Kingston has added to its memory line with the HyperX T1 12GB DDR3-1600 Memory Kit. Kingston HyperX T1 memory is geared towards Intel setups, with the “X” designating XMP Profile and the new 12GB kit having Tri-Channel capabilities with its 3x4GB configuration. The Kingston HyperX T1 line is geared towards enthusiasts and comes out of the box at DDR3-1600 with 9-9-9-27 timings at 1.65v. A generous black heat spreader gives the Kingston HyperX T1 12GB RAM an aggressive and distinctive appearance, as well as being very functional for cooling away unwanted heat. Though optimized for Intel, Kingston HyperX T1 memory is compatible with AMD systems as well."

Super Talent Express RC8 USB 3.0 Flash Drive
     Wed, Aug 03 2011 | 5:23P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For many, using anything but a solid state drive for their system would be unacceptable from a performance standpoint. So why do we enthusiasts accept less performance from our flash drives? This obviously was a question the engineers over at Super Talent were asking themselves, as the all new Express RC8 flash drive is seemingly tailor-made to answer just that. Unlike similar drives out there, this little device is powered by a SSD grade controller in the form of the SandForce SF1200. This in and of itself would almost surely guarantee a cult following. Does it sound too good to be true? Is the Express RC8 the perfect blend of power and portability? Check out my full review to find out.

Corsair Dominator 4GB DDR3 1600Mhz C7 Memory Kit Review
     Mon, Aug 01 2011 | 4:02P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Dominator means one thing in the world of computers, high end memory from Corsair that is ready to be pushed to the extreme. Legit Reviews has the Corsair CMP4GX3M2C1600C7 memory kit on our Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge test system to see how this 4GB 1600MHz C7 memory kit performs! We also see if this kit can live up to the name Dominator when we try to run it at 2133MHz! Quote: "The Corsair Dominator CMP4GX3M2C1600C7 kit came to dominate and based on the amount of overclocking you can achieve I would say it did just that. While I knew this memory would be a good performer I was surprised that I was able to push this memory to 2132Mhz and keep the timings fairly tight. Not bad for our test system that was made up of the ASUS P8P67 motherboard and an Intel Core i5-2500K processor. From what I know about the PCS Chips branded memory ICs used on this specific kit these usually hit a wall around 2200MHz, so I was happy with how far I could push the kit..."
