     Sat, Jun 04 2016 | 12:01P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Did you like the performance levels of the Patriot SuperSonic Magnum 2 but it's just a bit too large for your taste? If the answer is yes then the SuperSonic Rage 2 should be a perfect fit.

G.Skill Ripjaws V 3200 MHz 32 GB (2x 16 GB)
     Fri, Jun 03 2016 | 12:02P | Memory | PermaLink

With memory capacities soaring, G.Skill sent us a huge 32 GB kit out of their Ripjaws V line-up, ready to be mated with Intel's Skylake processors. This two-stick kit from G.Skill is not only huge in capacity at it is also very fast at 3200 MHz.

Patriot Tab 128GB Micro USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review

Patriot has managed to squeeze an incredible 128GB of storage flash into the tiny Tab USB 3.0 flash drive. Let's take a close look at it now."

Kingston DataTraveler 4000 G2 64GB Encrypted USB Drive
     Fri, May 27 2016 | 2:42P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”As I stated when I reviewed the DataTraveler 2000, I am a big proponent and user of encrypted drives even for personal use, as you never know what someone might do if they got ahold of your personal data. While there are some apps out there that can encrypt data, they are not as secure against cracking and vulnerabilities as a hardware-encrypted drive is. Security aside, when it came to performance, I was blown away. I have used the Aegis Secure Key for a long time and the DataTraveler 2000 for the last month, and I was impressed by their speeds until now. I really thought that the software-based security, even though the encryption is hardware-based, would cut into the speeds affecting the overall transfers, but boy was I wrong. The DataTraveler 4000 G2 was a monster with some impressive read speeds and write speeds that were faster than their advertised speeds. For transferring large files, this drive would be a dream come true. The security was very easy to set up and a breeze to use; I did not experience any issues. While not as versatile as the pin-based systems like the Aegis Secure Key 3.0 and the DataTraveler 2000, it was easy to employ and I never had any usage issues. Furthermore, having the FIPS 140-2 Level 3 Compliance means I can use this drive in my work environment without breaking any protocols.”

HyperX Cloud Revolver @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, May 27 2016 | 12:03P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It’s amazing sometimes how quickly things can change. Back in 2014 when Kingston introduced their first gaming headset, the original Cloud, it was a little surprising. It didn’t take very long though before we started seeing them a lot at LAN events and people were talking very highly of them. The same for their Cloud II’s as well. Well the some of you might not know but the Cloud was licensed from Qpad with Kingston tweaking a few things on the sound engineering side of things. Well recently they introduced a new headset called the Cloud Revolver and this time around everything is designed in house. Today I’m going to check it out and see if it stands up to the very high standard that the original Cloud designs set.

DDR4 Memory at 4000 MHz, Does It Make a Difference?
     Tue, May 24 2016 | 5:23P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For the most part we test using DDR4-3000, as it occasionally shows some benefits over the more typical 2400 and 2666 MHz speeds. Going to 4000 MHz and beyond is a massive increase in frequency (and cost) and I struggled to imagine where this would be useful, particularly when gaming. Then again, curiosity had gotten the better of me...

Patriot Viper Elite DDR4-3200 Memory (16GB) Review
     Sun, May 22 2016 | 9:03A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Supercharging our Z170 test bench allowed us to squeeze out every ounce of performance possible and with thanks to Patriot, we look to squeeze out some more! Today we are tossing Patriot's Viper Elite DDR4-3200 memory into our test bench in hopes to speed things up!

Mushkin Atom 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review
     Wed, May 18 2016 | 12:36P | Memory | PermaLink

The new atom 128GB USB 3.0 flash drive by Mushkin is not only tiny but it also offers plenty of available capacity with relatively good read/write performance at a bargain price.

Intel 540s SSD Review (480GB) – SMI Controller With SK Hynix Memory
     Thu, May 12 2016 | 9:01A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As the SSD industry continues to grow, manufactures try to maintain their consumer presence with more value oriented consumer products. Such is the case with Intel’s latest step into the TLC segment by introducing their newest 540s SATA 3 SSD a few weeks back. The Intel 540s Series is their first SSD to feature 16nm TLC NAND and first 5 series drive to deliver up to 1TB of capacity. Much more interesting though is the fact that Intel has sought out 3rd party manufacturers for both controller and NAND flash memory, relying on more value conscious parts than their own. The TLC NAND is sourced from SK Hynix while the controller is from Silicon Motion. The controller moved to Silicon Motion is a given as SandForce was bought out by Seagate but why Intel would not be relying on their own fabs for memory is more than a bit curious.

Magnum 2 256GB USB 3.1 Gen 1 Flash Drive Review
     Mon, May 02 2016 | 2:39P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you're out in the market for a new USB flash drive and you're looking for one of the fastest ones around then the SuperSonic Magnum 2 by Patriot should do the trick.

Kingston DataTraveler Micro 3.1 128GB USB 3.1 Gen 1 Flash Drive Review
     Sun, May 01 2016 | 9:02A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Kingston DataTraveler Micro 3.1 128GB USB 3.1 Gen 1 USB flash drive may not be at the top of the "food chain" but it's tiny, made out of metal (zinc alloy) and offers reasonably good read performance.

G.SKILL TridentZ 32GB 3200MHz DDR4
     Thu, Apr 28 2016 | 12:08P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The 32GB dual-channel Trident Z kit from G.SKILL is carefully binned to work at the rated 3200MHz and comes with a XMP 2.0 profile, which should be compatible with the latest high-end motherboards. While the Supermicro C7Z170-OCE board did not have any issues recognizing the profile (with a small voltage glitch which was setting the voltage at 1.45V instead of the rated 1.35V and needed to be set manually) and successfully booted the system, our previously tested BIOSTAR boards could not handle the 3200MHz profile, not matter the settings we have tried, so before purchasing such a high-speed kit, make sure your CPU/mobo combo can really handle it."

     Wed, Apr 27 2016 | 12:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The G.Skill Ripjaws V F4-2400C15D-32GVR 2x16GB is a reasonably priced, great performing DDR4 memory kit with tons of capacity and -- get this -- a great overclocker.

Crucial Ballistix Elite, Sport and Tactical 16GB DDR4 Memory Group Test
     Thu, Apr 21 2016 | 11:58A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The introduction of the Skylake platform by Intel successfully brought DDR4 to the “mainstream” market, previously DDR4 uptake had been limited by the high entry costs of the only supported consumer platform at the time, X99. As a direct result of the larger market for DDR4 afforded by Skylake there has been an explosion in the number of kits available and, helpfully for prospective buyers, the last 6 months or so have seen the cost of DDR4 fall sharply, almost converging with per-GB DDR3 prices. DDR4, in short, is no longer limited to the ultra high-end market.

Crucial Ballistix Sport LT 32 GB 2400 MHz DDR4
     Thu, Apr 21 2016 | 11:56A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With a flurry (pun intended) of white products on store shelves now, one thing that has been sorely missing are white memory sticks. However, Crucial is here to save the esthetics of your white build with their Ballistix Sport 32 GB kit clad in white heatspreaders and a white PCB! Not only do they look good, their huge capacity means you'll nearly never run out of memory!
