SanDisk Extreme 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive (SDCZ80-064G) Review
     Tue, Sep 11 2012 | 6:05P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
What's neat about the Sandisk Extreme 64GB USB 3.0 flash drive is that it's built with the kind of flash memory found in Solid State Drives . Sandisk won't reveal the exact type of NAND flash memory mind you, but rate the drive at speeds of 190MB/s read and 170MB/s write. That's quick. For a clearer picture on the capabilities of the SanDisk Extreme flash drive, PCSTATS benchmarked it against the Patriot Supersonic. Both flash drives are native USB 3.0 devices and 64GB in capacity, but the type of flash memory differs between them. Where the SanDisk Extreme posted results of 196MB/s read and 173MB/s write in CrystalDiskMark (100MB, Sequential), the Patriot Supersonic flash drive managed just 114.2MB/s read and 59.33MB/s write - a virtual snails pace by comparison!

Patriot Viper 3 Intel Extreme Masters Memory 1866MHz 16GB Review
     Tue, Sep 11 2012 | 4:01P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Equipped with the latest iteration of Patriot`s Viper heat sink package that has evolved over the years - from the original AOC (Aluminum on Copper) design to a stamped aluminum heat shield - these do well in terms of cooling. Even with the higher voltage and increased clock speed, the Viper 3-designed heat sinks kept the thermals in check with just the airflow from the fans on the H100. Currently priced at $123 from online outlets, the Intel Extreme Master modules look and perform well, fitting right into the theme of many blue and black motherboards on the market. Patriot`s Intel Extreme Master Limited Edition modules offer cooling performance coupled with a low voltage requirement and good looks that add up to a package of high capacity at a relatively low price. On top of that, you get some overclocking headroom if you choose to go that route."

Kingston HyperX Blu 1600MHz 16GB (2x8GB) Memory Kit Review @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Sep 11 2012 | 11:59A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Kingston HyperX Blu memory kits are essentially the entry level HyperX product. Does that mean they aren`t top of the line? Not at all! For the average user that is looking for great bang for the buck the Kingston HyperX Blu memory modules are a great buy. Our 16Gb kit today was holding it`s own against..."

Kingston HyperX Lovo 2x4GB DDR3-1600MHz CL9 1.35v @ ocaholic
     Tue, Sep 11 2012 | 11:59A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Instead of an enthusiast motherboard, this time we will look at a workstation motherboard. Meanwhile it is not a entry level motherboard, Gigabyte provided us with their latest high end dual socket motherboard which is the mainstream model of this new series. It features up to 384 GB of DDR3 ECC memory running at 1600 MHz, two 8 core / 16 threads processor, a high end LSI SAS controller and more. This time we will not only review the motherboard but also benchmark this dual Xeon Octocore setup under real world workloads/situations. Feel the power!"

Kingston DataTraveler Locker+ G2 USB Drive Review
     Tue, Sep 11 2012 | 9:25A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
To me it`s just a larger-than-average thumb drive that is quite a bit slower for moving larger files. I wouldn`t call this drive a fail, because it does do what it is supposed to do. It locks others out of your data and protects it by all means - even if it must destroy that data. However, the drive is a pain to use. Every time you use the drive you need to put in your password. On top of this annoyance, if you aren`t careful or have a type happy keyboard your data will go to format heaven. I`d rather have an annoying process that takes longer for every wrong password or a different process to get the data back, but I guess that would defeat the purpose. If it`s stolen they don`t get your data, but it also costs a lot more than if they stole a regular thumb drive. It`s really up to you how securely your files need to be kept. It`s definitely not a drive meant for everyday use. Nothing is for everyone, but this drive is far from being universally accepted. It`s definitely designed for the few of you out there who need secure data storage."

Crucial Ballistix Elite 8GB 1600MHz DDR3 Memory Kit Review @ Bigbruin.com
     Mon, Sep 10 2012 | 7:47P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall, the Crucial Ballistix Elite 8GB 1600MHz DDR3 Memory Kit tested as-good or better than a competitive reference memory kit. Beyond the stock settings, the Ballistix Elite kit was capable of running default timings (8-8-8-24) all the way up to an overclocked frequency of 1866MHz at 1.65v. At $68 shipped, this kit is a pretty good value."

Review: Crucial Ballistix Tactical 2x4GB DDR3-1600MHz CL8 @ Ocaholic
     Sun, Sep 09 2012 | 11:55A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Not that long ago, we reviewed a trio of Crucials fresh DDR3-1866 memory kits and established that all of them share the same, highly overclockable Micron ICs. This got us thinking whether it is possible to have a similar experience using any of the lower-rated Ballistix models as well."

Kingston HyperX T1 2x4GB DDR3-2400MHz CL11 @ ocaholic
     Sun, Sep 09 2012 | 9:30A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Before Ivy Bridge processors have hit the shelves, DDR3-2400 rated memory was an option only for a small bunch of enthusiasts who could afford and knew hot to put it to a good use. Now though, such clocks became accessible to a broader audience that even brands as sensible as Kingston have such products to offer."

Patriot's Viper 3 lineup of DDR3 memory

Patriot's Viper 3 lineup of DDR3 memory kits are designed for Intel's latest socket 1155 Ivy Bridge platform and feature "Black Mamba" heat shields that are designed to be both light in weight yet heavy in thermal reduction. Hit our review of the value-priced 8GB DDR3-2133 kit to see if its a heavy hitter in performance as well.

Introduced in 2008, the low-voltage DDR3L standard was aimed to cut the power consumption of computer memory. But as time has shown, it barely made a one-watt improvement so it didnt really catch on. However, there are still products with voltage rating of 1.35V available for purchase, so lets see if they make any sense today."
