quad-channel memory kit from VisionTek
     Sun, Apr 29 2012 | 9:02A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We've got another quad-channel memory kit from VisionTek on the review bench today. Hit our link to see how the sub-$100 Ultimate Performance 8GB PC3-17000 memory kit (featuring 11-11-11-30-2T timings) compares against similarly priced offerings from the competition.

Corsair Vengeance 1100 @ Techreaction.net
     Sat, Apr 28 2012 | 8:03A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair has been a brand that many many PC builders, benchers, overclockers, and gamers have come to associate with quality. For years Corsair has been providing high quality PC components that have been recommended many times over by a significant number of people who know a thing or two about PC hardware. Recently Corsair has launched a new line of gaming peripherals which range from keyboards, mice, and headsets dubbed ?Vengeance?. The Vengeance line, when announced, had many wanting to get their greedy little hands on what Corsair was offering. A few weeks back we had a chance to test out one of the products in the new Vengeance PC peripheral family, the Corsair?s Vengeance 1500 Gaming Headset. Seeming to be the Vengeance flagship gaming headset, the 1500 impressed us with its extremely good clarity, easy to use software, and stylish design. There was however a bit of an issue we had with the headset?s bass output. However if you read our review (shame on you if you didn?t) you?d see why the bass output wasn?t such a big deal overall, and we declared the Vengeance 1500 to be a very good gaming headset. Today we get a chance to grade another member of the Vengeance family, the little brother of the headset clan if you will, the Vengeance 1100 Communication Headset. Now off the bat you should notice that Corsair is using the word ?Communication? instead of ?Gaming? within the 1100`s name. A logical assumption would be that this headset is meant to be used with things like VOIP, Skype, etc. However Corsair is indicating that the headset is great for gaming as well as voice conferencing, and other application used primarily for voice transmission.Let?s see if Corsair is on the money with their claims."

Intel urged to support DDR4 ahead of schedule
     Mon, Apr 23 2012 | 8:38P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung Electronics reportedly has been trying to persuade Intel to launch its DDR4-supporting server platforms ahead of the planned 2014 schedule due to concerns that making DDR3 chips is now unprofitable due to low prices, according to industry observers.

Gigabyte's latest Intel X79 motherboard
     Thu, Apr 19 2012 | 6:34P | 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 2400MHz 8GB Quad Channel Memory Kit @ Bjorn3D

There is an old adage that proclaims ?Less is More.? This is not true with computer components, where ?More is More.? With the Crucial Ballistix Elite, you can answer both and keep you and your Grandparents happy. High speed and lots of capacity fit the bill nicely for the PC ?More is More? user. With the 9-9-9 timings and 1.5v necessary to power the sticks, GrandPa will applaud your sensibilities because ?Less is More.? There are very few products, that personally, get me excited. While the paper specs of the sticks are great, they were met with cautious skepticism. Surely such rankings mean the sticks are so highly binned, they are already maxing out their capability. After overclocking and benching the sticks, using them in both AMD and Intel systems flawlessly, there is no doubt that these modules will be listed among the greats in Memory IC history; BH-5, TCCD, D9GMH, or Hyper MNH-E."

The Crucial Ballistix Elite 16GB DDR3 1600 CL8 Memory arrived Technic3D. Technic3D will see as good they are on Windows 7 64 Bit and the Intel DX79SI Extreme Series Mainboard. You can see 2.133 MHz (1,5V) with 10-10-10-28 (2T) and more in the following Review."

REVIEW: VisionTek Ultimate Red 8GB DDR3-2133 @ PureOverclock
     Sat, Apr 14 2012 | 4:02P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel`s X79 platform has gained some traction as of late but their newest platform named the Z77 is on the horizon to bust loose for both Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge processors. Today, we have VisionTek`s latest memory modules unpackaged and ready to roll named the Red Label Ultimate Performance PC-1700 CL11 2133MHz. We will look at the performance of these sleek looking modules in both the X79 and Z77 platform, so sit back, grab a beverage and join us for a good look."

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.

Exceleram Rippler ERB300A 4 GB PC3-12800 CAS 6 1.65 V DDR3 @ techPowerUp
     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 11:29A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we take a look at another classic memory kit on the Intel X79 Express platform, this time from Exceleram. The Rippler ERB300A is built for overclocking with its fast CL6 speeds, but will that still work with the overclocks of today?"

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."
