Kingston HyperX Genesis Grey Series 4GB DDR3-2133
     Mon, Mar 07 2011 | 1:41P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“We're looking at a set of Kingston HyperX Genesis Grey Series 4GB DDR3-2133 modules. They bring the famous HyperX pedigree to the table but come with a slightly new twist, sporting grey heatspreaders instead of the traditional blue. They still look sleek, but perhaps more significantly is they come with a $105 price tag for a killer speed rating. Let's find out if Kingston has produced another winner with these HyperX Genesis modules.”

Kingston HyperX Max 3.0 64GB
     Sat, Mar 05 2011 | 4:02P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our experience with the Kingston HyperX Max 3.0 64GB tells us that this is a very well made product featuring a high-quality SSD inside, perhaps the best of any external SSD we know of. Although quite pricey at $190 US, we feel given what is out there this price isn’t bad. After all, the OCZ Enyo 64GB is still fetching $180 US, and although it should provide similar performance we prefer the design of the HyperX Max 3.0.

OCZ Vertex 3 240GB review
     Fri, Mar 04 2011 | 12:02P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It was only a week ago when we tested the OCZ Vertex 3 PRO, the somewhat business and enterprise oriented SSD. But what about the enthusiast consumers you might wonder ? Well for you guys OCZ will release a cheaper regular Vertex 3 SSD. It's as fast as that PRO version you guys. Quite frankly from what you'll see today is that this SSD might be roughly as fast as the PRO model, so what are the differences then ? Well, Let's find out and check this review.

Crucial Ballistix Smart Tracer PC3-12800 4GB Kit Review
     Fri, Mar 04 2011 | 12:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I didn't think we'd ever see anything too fancy from the company, though, but over the years we've seen the Ballistix series which has grown to include a few different series' within that. The latest is the Smart Tracer modules that carry that LED Tracer lighting, but in a smart way. We say 'smart way' as the company has introduced the new Memory Overview Display software (or M.O.D). We'll get into this soon, but let's first have a closer look at the actual kit of RAM we're dealing with. Externally the Ballistix Smart Tracer doesn't look any different to the normal Tracer stuff. We've again got two modules for our P67 platform that comes in at 2GB each. Timing wise, we've got an 8-8-8-24-1T @ 1.65v setup at 1600MHz DDR (or PC3-12800). These run at the same speed as the Patriot 8GB kit we recently looked at, except they're slightly more aggressive on the timings front. With the speed being quite low compared to some other kits we've looked at, we knew getting to the default timings wouldn't be an issue."

OCZ Platinum XTE PC3-16000 2x2GB review
     Thu, Mar 03 2011 | 9:03A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Unless you have been hiding under a rock for the last little while, news of OCZ leaving the computer RAM business completely by February 28 of this year has been spreading like wildfire on the internet. This announcement came after OCZ's statement in August 2010, when the company decided to withdraw from the unprofitable commodity memory market to focus on high performance enthusiast RAM instead. However, two weeks ago, news dawned upon us that even that move is no more. Being a major player in the solid state disk drive market (Not surprisingly, as it seems to me the OCZ Vertex 2 is the Honda Civic of the SSD world, except with Lamborghini performance), OCZ recently claimed 78% of their revenue came from SSDs in the past financial quarter. While we wish OCZ the best in their future ventures, it was a certainly a sad day for us upon hearing about this. I have personally witnessed OCZ's substantial growth back in the early 2000's. From their awesome marketing in widely popularizing the use of heatspreaders on high performance overclocking RAM when DDR1 RAM was still the standard and AMD Athlon 64s were the craze, to competitively priced high quality modules, OCZ have unquestionably won the hearts of many casual system builders and hardcore enthusiasts alike. I still remember their Special Ops Edition Urban Elite DDR2 with cool looking 'camo' heatspreaders, the epic Flex XLC that can be hooked up to your water cooling system, and my first ever set of DDR3 RAM, back when 2x1GB modules ran for $600 a kit. Before we wave goodbye to our long time friend, today we will publish what is probably our last OCZ RAM review on the Platinum XTE PC3-16000 2x2GB dual channel kit.

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 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."
