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
Posted by: STAFF
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.

Patriot Memory Supersonic USB 3.0 Flash Drive
     Tue, Feb 15 2011 | 5:17P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Companies are starting to come out of the wood work with USB 3.0 storage products, many of which were released at CES 2011. We've been testing USB 3.0 portable storage enclosures since November 2009 when we hosted the very first USB 3.0 product review online. Since then we've seen large and small devices, but the trend is leading to smaller and more compact storage that mates us to the 5G USB 3.0 protocol. In an effort to continue the progression of smaller, faster storage products, Patriot Memory has sourced the world's first native USB 3.0 to flash controller. By eliminating a bridge chip the new Patriot Supersonic is smaller than any other USB 3.0 thumb drive we've tested and offers less latency as well. Patriot claims the new Supersonic is able to achieve read speeds of up to 100MB/s and write speeds of up to 70MB/s. These numbers are much lower than the high end SSD based storage enclosures we've reviewed like the OCZ Technology Enyo, but the Supersonic is also much smaller and can be had at a much lower price point."

Corsair Vengeance Series PC3-12800 8GB Kit
     Sat, Feb 12 2011 | 12:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The release of P67 hasn't done much in the way of RAM requirements, which for the most part is great. We say for the most part only because the lack of changes means that there's nothing super exciting about RAM on the new platform. With that said, though, there's a change when it comes to JEDEC standard; 1600MHz DDR being the stock minimum clock now and CL9 timings also being the minimum at those speeds. Companies aren't going to have an issue, though, as we've been dealing with speeds well above 1600MHz DDR for a long time now. So the good news is that if you want to upgrade to P67 from your P55 platform, which as we've shown you in our articles on Sandy thus far, would be quite a nice upgrade, you won't need to buy yourself new memory if you're using something decent already. This is great news for people who have invested in more expensive memory. The first company to bring memory to us for the new P67 platform is Corsair with the Vengeance series. This isn't the first time we've looked at the series. Actually, the last RAM review we did was pretty much the exact same kit, but in triple channel form."

Kingston HyperX Genesis 4GB 2133MHz DDR3 Memory Kit Review
     Sat, Feb 12 2011 | 9:01A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Kingston HyperX Genesis 2133MHz kit "suits up" in special edition grey and cranks up the memory speed. The Core i7 2600K is already a stellar processor when running 1333MHz memory, but when you turn up the clock speed it's clear that Sandy Bridge has room to grow in performance from increasing the memory speed also. Backed by a lifetime warranty and the biggest name in the memory business, this great looking kit of memory from Kingston Technology should be on the short list of anyone wanting to wring every last bit of performance from their new Intel Sandy Bridge CPU..."

Vengeance DDR3 1600 CL-9-9-9-24 2x 4 GByte Dual
     Fri, Feb 11 2011 | 9:02A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With their Vengeance DDR3 1600 CL9-9-9-24 Modules, Corsair presents an 8 Gigabyte memory kit which should be able to make recent socket LGA 1155 and LGA 1156 ready for the future. Furthermore we're also very curious if the modules can be overclocked very well or not.

Kingston HyperX Max USB 3.0 SSD 128GB
     Thu, Feb 10 2011 | 12:02P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While I certainly have seen some down right fast USB 3.0 devices in various shapes and forms, none have had insane write speeds to go along with those crazy read speeds. Well Kingston definitely feels my need for speed, and has coupled one of their monster internal SSDs to a USB 3.0 controller and called the resulting device their HyperX Max 3.0. On paper, the HyperX Max 3.0 is a device that should offer great write as well as great read speeds, but is the reality the same as the theory? Let's see exactly how good the Kingston 128GB HyperX Max USB 3.0 SSD drive really is! Now, read on for my full review.

Super Talent USB 3.0 Express RAM Cache Flash Drive
     Wed, Feb 09 2011 | 5:13P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"If you already have USB 3.0 on your shiny new PC then it is time to start adding accessories that take advantage of USB 3.0's speed. There isn't a geek or layperson that I know who doesn't already have at least a small collection of thumb drives. They served their purpose well, but it is now time to start retiring all of those small, slow drives and step up to a single, large, fast USB 3.0 thumb drive. The current generation of USB 3.0 onboard ports is capable of just over 200MB/s. This will increase as USB 3.0 becomes native to chipsets and eventually we will see the 10x USB 2.0 speeds we were promised. With USB 2.0 topping out at 35MB/s, 200MB/s is a large increase already. With speeds already at acceptable levels, the next question that comes in is price. Traditionally thumb drives are not all that expensive, unless you start getting into the mega sizes. The product we are looking at today, the Super Talent Express RAM Cache, is available for as low as 59 USD in a 16GB capacity. Our sample drive, the 32GB model, was found for as low as 119 USD and the mega sized 64GB drive tips the scales at 209 USD."

Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR3 1600MHz Memory Kit Review
     Wed, Feb 09 2011 | 5:12P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Corsair Vengeance 8GB 1600MHz CL9 DDR3 memory kit is a great performer in every regard. Being able to overclock this memory kit easily to 1866MHz is huge! While it does not win outright in benchmarks it is narrowly behind. The results are so close that it would be tough to actually see the difference in everyday scenarios. Its true value lies in its cost per GB where at just $5 more provides double the capacity of the highest performing 2133MHz kit. It really is amazing that with the downturn in memory prices that for just $104.99 today we can get an 8GB memory kit that is Intel XMP certified to run at 1600MHz with a very low voltage, virtually guaranteeing you can hit higher speeds with a small increase in voltage. With an Intel Core i5 2500K CPU, a Corsair Vengeance memory kit, and a decently priced motherboard you would have a build that is both very overclocking friendly and an incredible performance per dollar..."

Patriot SuperSonic 64GB (USB 3.0)
     Wed, Feb 09 2011 | 5:09P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Apart from the price, which we really hope will deflate quite quickly, the Patriot Supersonic 64GB is a fantastic product, likely one of the best quality USB 3.0 thumb drives available at this point in time. It's compact, durable, light weight, sleek and it's backed by a 5-year warranty which should pretty much cover the lifetime of the product.

Kingston, being one of the most prolific memory manufacturers in the world and more specifically in the UK, haven't missed out on the Sandy Bridge bandwagon. Their latest release sees the ever popular HyperX series turn greyscale for a strategic assault on the Sandy Bridge P67 chipset.
