REVIEW: Crucial Ballistix Elite 16GB DDR3-1866 @ PureOverclock
     Fri, Jul 27 2012 | 9:10A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Crucial has been manufacturing quality memory modules for nearly 15 years. They are also well known for manufacturing Solid State Drives and USB Flash Drives. The Ballistix name has also been around for some time and is associated with great quality without breaking the bank. Today, we have Crucial`s 16GB Ballistix 1866MHz memory modules on the test bench so let`s see what they bring for the X79 platform."

G.SKILL TridentX 2400 MHz F3-2400C10D-8GTX
     Fri, Jul 27 2012 | 5:55A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we take a look at an 8GB high performance memory offering from G.SKILL. These modules are designed with a super fast speed of 2400MHz in dual channel mode with the new extreme hybrid heatspreader design. These are G.SKILLs newest line of extreme performance memory, dressed to impress."

Mushkin 997070 16GB & 994071 32GB Redline Memory Review
     Fri, Jul 27 2012 | 1:21A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Looking at these two kits of memory from Mushkin shows that it has another pair of kits that deliver performance indicative of their specifications and more. First up are the distinctive good looks and functionality of the cooling solutions employed on each kit. The 32GB kit part number 994071 uses the Ridgeback design. This robust heatsink package uses a series of angle shaped (think Mushkin logo) fins on top of a thick body to effectively wick away the thermal load generated by these high density modules. Packing them into a four DIMM configuration like used in the testing will allow a higher heat load to be retained but is nothing to be concerned about. Using an air cooled CPU cooling solution would fix that issue as once air starts moving over the modules they cool down fast."

Review: G.Skill TridentX 2x8GB DDR3-2400MHz CL10 @ ocaholic
     Thu, Jul 26 2012 | 11:59A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Every now and then, the idea about the maximum amount of RAM one can put into a computer gets redefined with that number being progressively doubled. Now, time has come to make another step as 8GB modules are starting to make their entry to the stage."

Choosing the Best DDR3 SDRAM for Ivy Bridge
     Wed, Jul 25 2012 | 9:01A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Processor microarchitectures continue developing, and the DDR3 SDRAM frequencies continue growing. However, does it really make sense to use high-speed memory with contemporary Ivy Bridge processors? To answer this question we analyzed the influence of memory frequency and latencies on the performance of a contemporary LGA 1155 platform.

Kingston MobileLite G3 USB 3.0 Card Reader Review.
     Mon, Jul 23 2012 | 3:39P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For those who prefer the convenience and speed of a separate card reader, Kingston Technology offers a variety of USB-based card readers.

G.Skill TridentX 2666C11-13-13-35 Kit Review @ Madshrimps
     Wed, Jul 18 2012 | 3:55P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The G.Skill brand has become one of the more popular brands in the enthusiast community. This Taiwanese RAM company has won the hearts of many overclockers, especially due their binning methods and affordable price tag. Therefore G.Skill manages time after time to launch RAM kits in multiple speed/timing versions, in different quantities and best of all they usually sport some extra overclocking headroom. With each new CPU platform that pops up, G.Skill introduces simultaneously a new series of RAM. When Intel launched Ivy Bridge, the TridentX RAM series popped up on the G.Skill website. The RAM vendors had to redo their binning methods, mainly due to the high ram speed support of the new Ivy Bridge CPU`s. Enthusiast RAM isn`t solely based anymore on just tight timings, high RAM speeds is one of the new requirements. The TridentX kit reviewed today is one of the higher specced kits, supporting a whopping 2666Mhz at CAS 11-13-13-35 2T timings out of the box."

Patriot Viper Extreme Division 2 RAM @ Techreaction.net
     Wed, Jul 18 2012 | 9:37A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to long names the Patriot Viper Extreme Division 2 series dual channel memory kit, pull no punches. There is a lot of power in a name, and this dual channel (division 2) kit of RAM from Patriot, an Extreme version of their Viper lineup, should have lots of power. The memory kit is normally a dual channel affair, but with 2 kits on hand popping them into an X79 system for testing seemed like more fun. As with years gone past, memory pairing, is not so much about getting special sticks, its just a matter of matching frequency, timings and voltage to the common denominator (be it high or low). So getting 2 dual channel kits for a quad channel motherboard, is absolutely okay, and makes piece meal upgrades more palatable. The Sticks in hand today are PXD38G1600LLK. They Operate at 1600 MHz, 8-9-8 timings, 4GB double sided sticks running at 1.65v. This is a normal DDR voltage for last year, but seems a bit high with new JEDEC specs pushing out 1.35v RAM now. For the enthusiast it is not that big of a deal though and 1.65v is easily doable and more on modern CPUs."

     Tue, Jul 17 2012 | 9:37A | Memory | PermaLink

These modules are not cheap, the kit being available online for about 185 Euros."

G.Skill RipjawsZ 4x4GB 2400 MHz CL9 @ Ocaholic
     Mon, Jul 16 2012 | 12:04P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, were going to have a look at one of G.Skills offerings a 16GB Ripjaws-Z kit - the one that was the fastest memory you could buy in a not so distant past, the one that has DDR3-2400 written on it. Even though as one of industrys main players in the enthusiast market, G.Skill have already stepped up the game by introducing Trident-X lineup that stretches all the way to DDR3-2800, we reckon that some of the older stuff could still turn lots of heads. Why? Well, let us explain first by looking at some dry data:"

Test: G.Skill Ares 4x4GB 2133 MHz CL9 revisited on Ivy Bridge @ ocaholic
     Sat, Jul 14 2012 | 10:25A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we first looked at the 4x4GB G.Skill Ares DDR3-2133 CL9 kit, we tested it on the Intel X79 platform it was orinally intended for. Since then, Ivy Bridge has taken the crown in the enthusiast market so, while we still have the memory, we decided to pay it a second visit. Consider this mini-article an addition to the original review."
