OCZ Gold XTE Series PC3-17000 4GB Kit
     Sat, Feb 26 2011 | 4:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"We've mentioned already a number of times, including in our OCZ Platinum XTE review of the 2000MHz DDR kit, because of there being no divider for 2000MHz DDR you have to adjust the very limited BCLK. What it ultimately means is a bit of a hit and miss experience with 2000MHz DDR memory. If it's good overclocking RAM, you'll be ok. If not, you could struggle to hit the default clocks due to the limited option in the BIOS. Today, though, we hope to completely miss that issue with the Gold XTE series which while lower on the food chain in the OCZ line up; does carry with it a higher clock speed; in this case 2133MHz DDR. Like the Platinum series there's not much going on in the package with the two modules being the main highlight. The two 2GB modules come in at 2133MHz DDR as we have already mentioned, and on the timings front we're seeing a 10-10-10-30-1T @ 1.65v setup."

OCZ Platinum XTE Series PC3-16000 4GB Kit
     Fri, Feb 25 2011 | 4:03P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Today we're looking at a Platinum XTE Series kit from OCZ and it's actually the first time we've seen a kit from this series. To get a bit more specific, we're dealing with a PC3-16000 or 2000MHz DDR 4GB kit that comes in with a 9-9-9-24-1T @ 1.65v setup. Like most of the kits we've looked at recently, this one doesn't carry with it anything extra outside the modules themselves when it comes to the package, and for the most part it seems to help keep the cost down with the kit coming in at only 94.99 USD "

OCZ Platinum XTE 4GB DDR3-2000
     Thu, Feb 24 2011 | 12:02P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“OCZ is typically known for producing rock solid memory kits at very attractive prices. And while we can understand the rationale behind OCZ's decision to leave the memory market in the near future, we'll be sorry to see them go. So there's a good chance these OCZ Platinum 4GB XTE DDR3-2000 modules might be one of the last of their kind in a long line of successful sticks from OCZ.”

Patriot Viper Xtreme Division 2 PC3-15000 8GB Kit
     Thu, Feb 24 2011 | 9:01A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"This time it's Patriots turn to get in the lime light with the Viper Extreme Series Division 2 kit. Yes, it's got quite the name. First up, we've got the package which while being nicely designed, doesn't contain much more than the two modules which comes as no surprise. What we're dealing with today is an 8GB kit which consists of two 4GB modules that come in at PC3-15000 or 1866MHz DDR. The timings come in a little more relaxed at 9-11-9-27-1T @ 1.65v, not bad timings, but a little looser than the last kit we looked at which was higher clocked. The reason for this, though, is because we're dealing with higher density 4GB modules instead of 2GB ones."

OCZ DDR3 PC3-17000 Gold XTE 4GB Kit
     Thu, Feb 24 2011 | 9:00A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OCZ Technology has done wonders for the RAM industry and has raised the bar over the past few years in terms of memory performance, aesthetics and pricing. The Gold XTE series is their "mainstream high-end" kit that offers some pretty incredible speeds with looser timings in order to keep it affordable. Running memory at speeds of up to 2.2GHz is pretty impressive and it stayed rock-solid at 2200MHz where it would fail at 2233 if we edged up the bus another single MHz. . .

“The Corsair Vengeance DDR3 series comes in Dual and Triple Channel configurations, ranging from 4GB to 16GB kits, and are currently available in 1600MHz and 1866MHz speeds. Today we're looking at an 8GB kit running at 1600MHz in that's geared toward the new Sandy Bridge platform.”

“The Kingston HyperX Max is a portable SSD with a USB 3.0 interface that displays some blistering speed results. So it retains the best qualities of each technology, and housed in a small and sleek form. Frankly, this drive is beautifully sleek. Need top speed in a portable and external format? Then the Kingston HyperX Max might be just the thing to satisfy. So how fast is it? Oh, it's plenty fast alright.”

Quick Review: Corsair Dominator Series PC3-17000 4GB Kit
     Sat, Feb 19 2011 | 9:01A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"When we heard about how overclocking wasn't going to work via the BCLK on the P67 chipset, it really made me wonder how companies were going to attack the higher end RAM market. For years we've used a combination of dividers and a high BCLK to achieve high memory speeds; with only dividers available now we wouldn't be able to fine tune as much. So in came the beloved Dominator series from Corsair which we know from past experience is designed for high speed. The question was, though, how will we go about getting to the 2133MHz DDR default clock that Corsair is offering us? Before that, though, we'll look at the modules. Being part of the Dominator series, you're not going to see anything that really surprises you. We've got the black and red modules with Dominator tagging."

Crucial Ballistix PC3-17000 DDR-3 4GB Kit
     Thu, Feb 17 2011 | 5:58P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hardwareoverclock.com has just posted the Crucial Ballistix PC3-17000 DDR-3 4GB Kit review. This memories works with 2133 MHz and 9-10-9-24-1T at 1.65 Volt. So we’ve found a very interesting kit for our Sandy bridge system, that supports memories up to 2300 mhz. But what about the performance? Can the 2133 MHz kit also develop their full power? We’ll see….

Crucial Ballistix 4GB DDR3-1866 BL2KIT25664FN1869 Review
     Thu, Feb 17 2011 | 5:56P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Out of the box the Ballistix BL2KIT25664FN1869 kit offers great performance that should satisfy just about anyone. If this isn’t enough these Ballistix sticks offer a decent overclock while keeping the stock timings. Crucial has also put thermal sensors in these sticks so that you can monitor the temperatures with their Ballistix MOD Utility should you really want to push the limits.

G.Skill Ripjaws 1600 MHz DDR3 CL9 8 GB
     Thu, Feb 17 2011 | 5:56P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The G.Skill Ripjaws come in various flavors and capacities, but focus more on the mainstream overclocker. With many different versions and color variants of the kit out there, one could wonder if G.Skill is not simply trying to create models to cover every memory chip they get their hands on. But, we take a look at the 1600 MHz kit and are surprised to find headroom, lots and lots of headroom.

SSD for PCI-Express: OCZ IBIS vs. OCZ RevoDrive
     Thu, Feb 17 2011 | 5:54P | Memory | PermaLink

Today we are going to talk about SSDs with PCI –Express interface. This type of devices is free from a common bottleneck – insufficiently fast SATA interface, so this is where we should be looking for a performance leader.

G.Skill Ripjaws Series PC3-16000 8GB Kit
     Wed, Feb 16 2011 | 6:52P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Today we're looking at another kit of RAM from G.Skill and this one doesn't carry the new "X" tag at the end of the "Ripjaws" name, which means it isn't quite as hard core as the previous 2133MHz DDR kit we looked at. Instead, this kit carries with it a 2000MHz DDR clock, but is twice as large with the two modules coming in at 4GB each. This isn't the first time we've looked at a 2000MHz DDR kit on our new P67 platform; we recently looked at an OCZ kit and while the kit is indeed good, the divider options on the P67 mean that 2000MHz DDR can't be set without the BCLK moving. Of course, the P67 has also brought with it very limited adjustment when it comes to the BCLK, which on a whole has made overclocking a little different for most."

Patriot Division 2 Viper Xtreme PC3 15000 Memory Review
     Wed, Feb 16 2011 | 12:03P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As a general rule of thumb you will see a significant performance increase whenever you can run your memory clock above the default 13.33x multiplier setting and that is what you will get from these modules. While the Patriot Division 2 Viper Xtreme modules may not have the best timings their overall performance is perfect for gaming and general purpose computing.

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.
