     Fri, Mar 20 2015 | 12:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Crucial is well known in the industry for offering some of the best memory around. From entry level, servers, workstation, to gaming and overclocking enthusiast memory, Crucial is heralded for quality products. Today we will be looking at a set of DDR4 marked for servers and workstations in the X99 desktop platform. Crucial has this kit officially listed as CT4K8G4DFD8213 4x8GB 32GB 2133 memory. Let’s take a closer look.”

SanDisk UltraFit USB 3.0 FlashDrive
     Wed, Mar 18 2015 | 9:00A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In an age where we no longer use floppy discs and many systems no longer even have an optical drive the USB-memory sticks have become invaluable for carrying around data, use as Live-“CD” for Linux-distros or even as install-media for Windows and other OS’s. While USB 2.0 was pretty slow USB 3.0 offers much higher transfer rates and the USB-stick we are reviewing today, the SanDisk UltraFit, promises transfer speeds of up to 130MB/s while also including some nice security features

SanDisk Connect SDWS2 16 GB Wireless Flash Drive Review
     Tue, Mar 17 2015 | 12:03P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today I’m taking a look at the SanDisk Wireless Flash Drive SDWS2, a combined USB 2.0 and Wireless thumb drive. It comes in three capacities of 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB. I’ve got the 16 GB version on the table and I’m looking forward to seeing what it can do. This thumb drive is part of SanDisk’s Connect Line of storage devices that allow you to connect wirelessly to store, copy and stream files, even to multiple devices at once. The highly portable and easy to use thumb-drive grants you mobile and wireless access to your movies, photos, music and documents. You can connect up to 8 devices simultaneously and stream media to as many as 3 devices at once. All this without the need for an Internet connection or hotspot, it has everything built in. The internal battery recharges via the USB connector and offers up to 4 hours of continuous streaming on a single charge. SanDisk have taken a lot of well known features and put them into this thumb sized flash drive that even doubles as a micro SD card-reader. A little all-in-one wonder for the person on the go. The range of the device is 150 feet, about 45 meters, and that is the same as many routers have.

11 high-end DDR3 memory kits, reviewed
     Mon, Mar 16 2015 | 12:03P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our conclusion will be no surprise to die-hard overclockers: modules based on Hynix MFR chips – which includes just about every DDR3-2666+ module found in stores – essentially only exist for you to be able to claim high clock frequencies, without this having any other practical advantage. Performance when overclocked even tends to be worse rather than better. The highest clock frequency we reached in our test, DDR3-3355, was achieved using the Corsair Vengeance Pro DDR3-3000 kit with very carefully selected chips. Taking a CPU-Z screenshot with the highest possible clock frequency turns out to be a very expensive hobby.

MX-Technology Secure Encryption USB 3.0 128GB Review
     Mon, Mar 16 2015 | 12:01P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The ubiquitous USB flash drive comes in many designs and sizes, but data protection and encryption has not traditionally been a selling point, although we get that sense that is starting to change. With the need for data to be portable and secure, today we’re looking at the MX-Technology SEC 128GB USB 3.0 flash drive that features AES 256-bit encryption in a small and sleek package. Do you worry about data protection? Do you need portability? If so, then read on to find out if this USB flash drive is the thing for you.”

Kingston HyperX Fury DDR4 32GB 2400MHz
     Sat, Mar 14 2015 | 4:02P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We received a traditional Black kit of Kingston HyperX Fury DDR4 32GB 2400MHz and the first thing that jumped out at us was the low profile heatsinks. Don’t get me wrong I love the tall flashy heatsink as much as the next Geek but a good low profile kit of high density ram will fit places the tall flashy ones won’t. I tested taller kits on the Gigabyte X99-SOC Champion and my fav air cooler the Noctua NH-D15 the taller kits just prevented me using the behemoth Air Cooler. The Kingston HyperX Fury DDR4 32GB 2400MHz let the Noctua NH-D15 fit nicely and exhaust out the top of my Obsidian 800D. Then under the edge of the killer cooler you see the smart-looking low profile Kingston HyperX Fury DDR4 32GB 2400MHz peeking out and it’s sure to bring a smile to my face every time I see it. Coming in at a price of $548 for a future proof 32GB kit that’s well worth the performance and smile the Kingston HyperX Fury DDR4 32GB 2400MHz gives me.

Lexar JumpDrive M20 2-in-1Flash Drive Review
     Fri, Mar 13 2015 | 4:01P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are thousands of USB sticks and flash storage on the market and as we all know, they’re not all built the same. Lexar, by Micron, know a lot about flash-based storage and have come out with their JumpDrive M20 Flashdrive. The M20 is a drive that combines many things seen prior, but not in the same product. The JumpDrive M20 supports USB On-the-Go (OTG) and can be plugged directly into a compatible smart device for easy file transfers. Since all smart devices use a USB 2.0 micro port in this area, there wasn’t any need to make the drive complicated by adding USB 3 micro connector or having to include adapters of sorts. A flash-drive needs to stay simple, but we would still like to have the best possible speeds when we connect this drive to our PC, because it supports that too with its USB 3.0 connector. Plug it directly into your PC or other USB 3 capable device and you can get read speeds up to 120MB/s and write speeds up to 55MB/s. For example, you could transfer a 3GB HD video clip in less than one minute.

Kingston HyperX FURY DDR4-2400 32GB Memory Kit Review
     Fri, Mar 13 2015 | 9:02A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Not that long ago we took a look at Kingston’s first DDR4 memory kit their HyperX Predator. Kingston Launched their HyperX FURY line with DDR3 last year and have now brought it up to DDR4. HyperX FURY DDR4 kits will be available in 8GB, 16GB, 32GB and 64GB kits with speeds of 2133 MHz, 2400 MHz and 2667 MHz with CAS latencies of CL14-CL15. These kits also have a nice looking heatspreader and of course that quality that we expect from Kingston. Today we will be taking a look at the HX424C15FBK4/32 kit. This is a 32 GB kit that runs at 2400 MHz with timings of 15-15-15-35 at 1.2V. Does Kingston have another great DDR4 kit in their FURY? Read on as we find out!"

G.SKILL Ripjaws4 DDR4-3000C15 16 Gigabyte Review
     Thu, Mar 12 2015 | 12:03P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As we all know Intel has released their new Haswell-E HEDT processors, which support DDR4 memory. A new platform launch by Intel is always the perfect occasion for memory makers to bring new products to market. Today we're having a look at G.SKILL's new Ripjaws4 DDR4 memory. By default this quad channel kit is supposed to run at 3000 MHz and CL15 timings, which makes this a proper high-end product.

Crucial DDR4-2133 16GB Kit 4x 4GB DDR4 Review
     Thu, Mar 12 2015 | 9:02A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, we test some brand new DDR4 memory modules here at OCinside.de, which are supplied without heat spreaders, but reasonable priced. In this review, we have selected four Crucial 4 GB DDR4-2133 CL15 memory modules as 16 GB DDR4 Quad Channel Kit and tested on an Intel LGA 2011-3 system with ASRock X99 Extreme6 motherboard and Intel Core i7-5930K processor. Of course the DDR4 modules have been overclocked again to the limit and we have added a DDR4 comparison chart with all previously tested DDR4 modules.

Kingston SSDnow M2 SATA 120GB Solid State Drive Review
     Wed, Mar 11 2015 | 9:02A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Kingston has a long line of storage options for about every usage you could have. Today I’m taking a look at the SSDnow M.2 SATA Solid State Drive with a capacity of 120GB. The M.2 modules are also known as the Next Generation Form Factor (NGFF) and these thin and compact modules save space in small and embedded systems, ultra-thin devices, or it will just fit snuggly into your motherboards M.2 slot in your desktop system. The caseless design allows easier integration as well as keeping the weight as low as possible; a big factor when used in Ultrabooks and similar devices. The 2280 module (22mm width, 80mm length) supports advanced garbage collection, wear-levelling and TRIM to keep up the performance over the entire lifetime of the drive; so we should see very stable performance in our tests on the following pages. S.M.A.R.T. is also supported for peace of mind and health monitoring.

Patriot Supersonic Rage 2 256GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review

Patriot Viper 4 16GB PC4-24000 Memory
     Mon, Mar 09 2015 | 4:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"After putting the Viper 4 modules through their paces, you can see that clock speed and timings do have an effect on performance when looking at the synthetic scores. Comparing the performance of Patriots Viper 4 3000MHz rated 16GB kit to a pair of 2800MHz rated kits illustrates this perfectly in most of the test cases. When gaming or in the PCMark testing, the additional memory clock speed did not help much in the way of added performance. A key to drive performance upwards with DDR4 modules is to tune the primary timings as tight as you can get them, with the voltage you are comfortable with, and the tune the secondary and third timings to get the most bang for your proverbial buck. Couple that with tuning the cache ratio a bit higher and you continue to increase memory bandwidth to supply the quad channel controller in Intels Latest Xtreme X99 platform and Haswell-E processors.”
