Mushkin Ridgeback 996991 PC3-16000 8GB
     Mon, May 23 2011 | 12:01P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"So, right out of the box I ran this Ridgeback set of memory at 133Mhz (2133MHz) higher than the rated specification with the same timings. To reach higher speeds than 2133MHz I had to use a combination of timings, voltage and blcock tuning to reach the final clock speed of 2252MHz or 252MHz over the rated frequency. For voltage, I had to push 1.69v through the modules to get 2252MHz stable. Tightening the CAS latency any more than 9 at this level resulted in the computer not posting. To reach a CAS latency of 8 with sane voltages. I had to drop to the 1866 multiplier and increase the bclock so that I could run just over 1900MHz at 8-9-8-27. CAS 7 took another reduction in frequency to to around 1684MHz at 7-8-7-24. Even when the CPU multiplier was increased to run the CPU at a higher speed to increase overall bandwidth, I did not see a significant increase in memory bandwidth from 3.4GHz to 4.7-4.8GHz in SiSoft Sandra 2011's memory bandwidth test. In the end, a 12.5% increase in clock speed offers up performance improvements but are tempered by the fact that the CPU is overclocked at the same time."

Crucial Ballistix Smart Tracer PC3-12800
     Sat, May 21 2011 | 9:02A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Last month we reviewed the Crucial Ballistix Tracer Black just to recap some of the price drops we've seen on memory lately and what is available out there in the DDR3 realm. In the introduction to that piece we discussed how Crucial had unveiled a new variety of their Tracer memory at the 2011 CES and that we hoped to have a sample of this product available soon. Today I am happy to present the Ballistix Smart Tracer for review."

"Today we have one of Crucials new SSDs, the 256GB m4, connected to our P67 system and will be running it through a selection of real world and synthetic tests to establish how it compares to the Intel 510 series and OCZ Vertex 3. In addition to that we will also throw in the C300 and a first generation SandForce drive to see where this new model sits."

We take the drive for a spin to see if they have managed to combine the best of the three attributes or if it is too good to be true.

G.Skill Ripjaws-X Series PC3-17000 16GB Kit Review
     Mon, May 16 2011 | 3:47P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The G.Skill Ripjaws-X PC3-17000 kit comes with four 4GB sticks carrying a default clock speed of 2133MHz DDR. I'm not all that big on overclocking my main machine, but the ease of P67 RAM overclocking means that changing the XMP Profile to 1 gives me the speeds I need without even touching my CPU speed. Carrying such large modules at such a large speed, it comes as little surprise that the timings are more relaxed than the black Ripjaws-X we looked at earlier in the year. The kit we've got today comes in at 9-11-9-28-2T @ 1.65v. Normally I would just ignore the 2T and jump straight to 1T, but I actually had trouble with the machine booting."

Mushkin Interview and Tour 2011
     Sat, May 14 2011 | 4:02P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"There is a saying that big things come in small packages and this suits Mushkin to a tee. They may not have hundreds of employees or dozens of offices, but they sure do damn well with what they have. I spent two days in the offices watching, asking questions and learning how they do business. I was amazed at the overall moral of the company and how everyone smiles and just loves their job. One thing that stood out to me was when they got a big order, and everyone ran to the back to help out and pack orders. When I say everyone, I mean everyone - sales people, tech guys - even the president of the company."

Patriot LX Pro 32GB Class 10 SDHC Memory Card Review
     Sat, May 14 2011 | 4:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"This is not unlike the weight classes in boxing, where the categories below 200lbs are tightly defined but weight differences beyond the Heavyweight class can be widely disparate. A 210lb fighter for example will be in the same weight class as a 320lb boxer, but a 160lb fighter cannot fight a 154lb pugilist. In terms of SD speed rating, as long as a memory card can sustain a minimum write speed of 10MB/s, it is given a Class 10 rating."

Exceleram EP3001A 6GIG Kit Review
     Sat, May 14 2011 | 9:00A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The memory we will be testing today is of part number EP3001A, which Exceleram are selling at 1333Mhz, but with the intention that it will be used for overclocking: “The EP series includes memory(kits) based on timing latencies of (currently) 1333mhz, but with "air" up to the top, so that overclockers have their fun.” says Steffen Eisenstein, Product Manager at Exceleram. Is this a bold claim of a new company, or true? Read on to find out"

Crucial M4 256GB SATA 3 SSD Review - Unexpected Performance in a Small Package
     Fri, May 13 2011 | 9:01A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The best part of reviewing SSDs is the ever changing atmosphere and pace at which things progress. As a reviewer, one never knows what to expect until a SSD is in our hands and that certainly is the case with the Crucial M4 SATA 3 solid state drive. We were a bit surprised to learn that Crucials new consumer version SSD has now taken the branding of M4 vice following that of the C300 line of their former release. For those unaware, Micron is Crucials parent company and will be retaining the C400 branding for their enterprise line of SSDs. Admittedly, we couldn't resist benchmarking the M4 as quickly as it was received and we soon learned that the name change wasn't the only surprise we were in for.

Kingston HyperX Genesis PC3-12800 4GB Kit Review
     Thu, May 12 2011 | 4:50P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Following the trend of companies expanding with new series, today we're looking at the new Genesis kit from Kingston which is part of the popular HyperX series we know and love. While named Genesis, the term we've been throwing around more is HyperX Grey and that's of course due to the color of the heat spreader that's present. The particular kit we're looking at today is the PC3-12800 4GB version, but it's worth noting that an 8GB version of the kit can also be bought. Being PC3-12800 means the kit carries with it a default clock speed of 1600MHz DDR. It's funny to see companies opt for these lower speed kits lately over the higher end 1866MHz and 2133MHz DDR ones that we've seen for the few months before hand."

G.SKILL Phoenix EVO 115GB Solid State Drive Review
     Thu, May 12 2011 | 4:49P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Everyone who are used to using fast computers will know this feeling. You sit down at a system that is not yours. You hit the power button. Five minutes later, the CPU is still at 100%, low memory warnings pop up, and just when you seem life cannot get any worse, seek noise from the hard drive continues rhythmic pattern with no end in sight. At this point, you start to go nuts. First, you scream like a little girl. Then you bang your head on the table repeatedly, and scratch it in such frantic manner until your hair starts to resemble Gary Spivey's. Like the prophets of Baal at Mount Carmel in the Bible, regardless of what you do, your acts of desperation goes unheard. But wouldn't you rather be Elijah instead? Sure, no fire will come down from heaven anytime soon (At least I sure hope not), but G.SKILL has something that will sure breathe some fire into your system -- and at the same time, it does not command a price like money is going to fall from the sky tomorrow. The Phoenix EVO 115GB SSD is the company's latest product in the highly competitive flash storage market for computer enthusiasts. Using the renowned SandForce SF-1222 controller with new 25nm MLC ICs, you are going to take a small performance hit along with less available storage capacity due to higher provisioning compared to SSDs using 34nm chips -- but what you do have to gain is a lower price of entry for a better cost-per-gigabyte ratio. So are you ready to eliminate your bottleneck, assuming you have a decent processor and adequate amounts of RAM? Let's crack it open to take a look at what's under the hood, and put it through out series of standard benchmarks.

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
