Patriot Gamer 2 AMD Edition PC3-12800 8GB Kit Review
     Fri, Jul 15 2011 | 4:05P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"AMD systems are a little picky when it comes to RAM. Sure, most RAM will work, but quite often when we start to hit high speed kits they can have problems running at stock speed on an AMD platform. With the launch of the new 990FX chipset that's ready for Bulldozer along with the new Llano platform which has shown strong memory performance, it was only a matter of time 'till we saw some AMD specific kits." The first in a long while comes from Patriot and is part of the Gamer 2 series with the particular kit we're dealing with being labelled "AMD Edition", which of course means it's designed for AMD systems. Coming in at 1600MHz DDR, the PC3-12800 8GB kit carrying a 9-9-9-24 @ 1.65v - 1.7v isn't a really high speed kit. It is of course an 8GB kit, though, which does tend to impact the speed we have. Combined with the fact it's an AMD one as well, we see that the speed can be limited a little more again. Still, hopefully we'll see some overclocking potential from the kit."

GeIL Enhance CORSA 1600MHz CL9 8GB DDR3 Review @ Vortez
     Tue, Jul 12 2011 | 5:30P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we will be taking a look at another DDR3 kit from the CORSA series, this time the Enhance. More specifically a dual channel kit rated at 1600MHz with the CAS timings of 9-9-9-28 @ 1.5v. The EVO CORSA kit we recently tested pushed the boundaries in terms of performance at stock against very competitive pricing; can the Enhance kit we are looking at today follow in the same manner? Let`s find out!"

Understanding RAM Timings
     Tue, Jul 12 2011 | 4:03P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"DDR, DDR2, and DDR3 memories are classified according to the maximum speed at which they can work, as well as their timings. Timings are numbers such as 3-4-4-8, 5-5-5-15, 7-7-7-21, or 9-9-9-24, the lower the better. In this tutorial, we will explain exactly what each one of these numbers mean."

G.Skill RipjawsZ PC3-17000 16GB Kit Review
     Tue, Jul 12 2011 | 11:19A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we`ll be looking at the F3-17000CL9Q-16GBZHD kit which is of course a PC3-17000 kit as the name would suggest. Of course, supporting the new Sandy Bridge-E platform, the first thing we notice is that the kit consists of four modules so they can be ran in Quad Channel on our ASUS Rampage IV Extreme today. Moving in closer to the modules, we can get a better idea of what exactly is going on with the speed and the timings of the kit. Of course, we know that PC3-17000 translates to 2133MHz DDR and this is probably going to be one of the more popular numbers for the new quad channel kits with 2133MHz DDR hitting that performance point we love to see without carrying with it 2400MHz DDR prices."

BIOS Option Of The Week - SDRAM CAS Latency
     Mon, Jul 11 2011 | 12:02P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meager beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition. Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend.

Kingston’s HyperX Plug and Play (PnP) 8GB DDR3 SODIMM 1866MHz
     Sat, Jul 09 2011 | 4:01P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our latest video review brings us face to face with a product that claims both a performance increase and ease of installation. We’ve heard both claims on many late night infomercials. However, this is one product that is no snake oil and as you see in the video above, Kingston’s new HyperX Plug and Play (PnP) 8GB DDR3 1866MHz Dual Channel SODIMM memory kit really does deliver on both promises. It definitely turned us from educated skeptics into believers, especially when it came to the benchmarks that don’t lie! Hit that play button!

Patriot Memory Flash Drive Shootout – USB 2.0 vs. USB 3.0 Quad Channel vs. USB 3
     Sun, Jul 03 2011 | 12:01P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Not all USB flash drives are made alike. There are reasons why you can find el cheapo knockoff brand drives in the bargain bin, as well as seemingly similar flash drives for much more money. And this goes well beyond just having more storage. And that’s where we find ourselves today. In this USB flash drive shootout, we take a look at the difference between USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, as well as the difference between having quad-channel and 8-channel. To help minimize other variables, we’ve stuck with just one brand: Patriot Memory.

Crucial m4 128GB SATA 6G Solid State Drive Review
     Mon, Jun 27 2011 | 3:58P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"At this point we've seen all of the larger, 256GB based SSDs and it's now time to start looking at the 128GB range. The 120GB - 128GB capacity size is important for manufacturers and consumers since this is the size that most of you are looking to purchase. The 128GB drives are very affordable this year, quite a bit less than the 2010 crop of drives and offer an amazing amount of performance.

Mushkin Blackline Ridgeback 2000 MHz DDR3 8GB review
     Sun, Jun 26 2011 | 4:02P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Mushkin offers their dual-channel Blackline Ridgeback in 8GB kits at $125 (USD), and to spice that up .. it is offered as a 2000 MHz kit, with granted not the most sexy timings but at a CAS latency of 9 versus 2000 MHz versus two 4GB high-density DDR3 modules. At 125 USD , and that's 15.6 USD per GB, you can understand that this kit might be a nice alternative to low latency 1333 and 1600 MHz kits. Muskin even tops that off by a lifetime warranty on this product so all in all that can't be a bad deal, no Sir.

X58 DDR3 Memory Roundup June 2011
     Sun, Jun 26 2011 | 12:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Every so often though we like to take a look at what the major manufacturers have to offer, something which will be particularly relevant for those building a new system or wondering how they can get some extra zip from an existing build and today is one of those days. We'll be using our high end X58 build to look at kits which each have their own unique selling points to find out what Corsair, Crucial, G.Skill, Kingston and Patriot have to offer in the triple channel DDR3 market."

G.Skill Sniper Series PC312800 Cas 7
     Sat, Jun 25 2011 | 9:00A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The stock clock speed rating on these G.Skill modules is 1600Mhz. That being said, the expectation that they might reach the 1950Mhz range was where I expected them to wind up. The fact is they kept going on up to just about the 2200MHz level that is occupied by the other G.Skill modules in this comparison, the Ripjaws X. Going this high did mean that the stock timings of 7-8-7-24 had to be thrown to the wind and adjusted as needed to reach the higher clock speeds. I ultimately settled on 9-11-9-24 using 1.70 volts instead of the as-delivered 1.60. A small jump but needed for the speed and timings I was attempting to run. If looked at on a percentage basis the Snipers saw a roughly 35% increase or 556MHz boost in clock speed. Pretty much the highest percentage increase I have run across in my testing. Not all sets will scale like this based on past history but if these sets do then the $149 price point is worth the investment."

Gskill Sniper 12GB X58 ram kit Review
     Thu, Jun 23 2011 | 4:01P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At the latest CeBIT 2011, GSkill announced their new Gamer Orientated Sniper series. Sporting a heatspreader that looks like a firearm. Coincidence or not, Gigabyte chose a sortlike military makeover for their new X58 G1 series motherboards. Even though main focus lately is on socket 1155, it is nice to see some new products too for the aging socket 1366. Todays reviewed kit is Gskills high end and high capacity 1600Mhz CL7 12GBkit. Consisting out of a triple 4GB dimm kit. Rated to run at a nice C7-8-7-24 SPD timings.

G.SKILL Sniper F3-12800CL9D-8GBSR2 2x4GB DDR3 RAM
     Mon, Jun 20 2011 | 4:03P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Everyone knows everything is upside down in Australia. They sit, sleep, and eat upside down. They celebrate Christmas in the summer. They drive on the wrong side of the road. But here are some things you might not know. Did you know that the Liberal Party of Australia is actually conservative? Did you know you can get slapped with a bigger fine and gain more demerit points if you own a radar detector (Where it is legal in 48 of the 50 states in America) than, say, if you do a burnout in your car, and then drive 45km/h over the speed limit? Did you know they heat their houses using air conditioners? In other words, if I went to Australia one day and wanted to bake a chicken, I would probably need to put it in the freezer. Indeed, Australia is a very weird place. But as time went on, I sooner or later realized Australia is not the only place in the world where weird things happen. Meanwhile, inside my igloo here in Canada, sitting next to me in the snow is G.SKILL's Sniper F3-12800CL9D-8GBSR2 2x4GB DDR3 RAM. What's so weird and against the norm about this dual channel kit is it has the looks and capabilities of high performance memory, but its voltage requirements is along the line of low performance 'eco' RAM designed to save power. How can this be? And if we gave it full voltage, can it move beyond what it is designed for? Read on to find out what we have found!

Patriot Memory 32GB LX Pro Class 10 SDHC Card
     Sat, Jun 18 2011 | 4:02P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As more and more professional devices are moving to SDHC, having a high end card like the Patriot Memory LX Pro provides the ability for fast speed and response time when taking photos or recording HD video. The comfort of knowing that your card can react as quickly as you can on the moments that count the most is unprecedented.
