It was just over a year ago that we analyzed the Runcore ProV 3Gbps 240GB SSD as one of the top SSDs available, then surpassing some RAID configuration performance results. As amazing as that review was, it now stands to be a great example of how far SSD technology has progressed this past year. This report looks at Runcore’s ProV Max SSD which contains the SATA 3 SF-2281 processor, as did our report of the Runcore T50 120GB mSATA SSD that we reviewed a few months prior.
The ASUS Sabretooth lineup always has been part of a little controversy. Some had no idea why the TUF series ever had to be made. Claiming high Durability and Reliability. So the other ASUS boards were inferior then in build quality ? Wouldn't they survive the torture test that the Sabretooth series do ? I've had the Sandybridge P67 version for internal testing and must say that it was a joy to work with. Even when benching with LN2, the board remained hassle free. It was no surprise that with the launch of Sandy Bridge-E another Sabretooth would appear on the market. Today we are gonna have a look at the latest addition to the TUF series : The Sabretooth X79.
And with my laptop being my main PC, I seldom even use my optical drive for anything. So, the people at Silverstone has given people like us another use for that space the optical drive take without actually losing the drive. The TS06 is an external enclosure for your internal optical drive and also provide you the opportunity to use the space the drive once took up for addition storage space. A little confused? Read on and I will elaborate for you.
The K90 Performance MMO Gaming Keyboard from Corsair is a solid product and comes with a combination of MX Red switches and silicone domes (the domes are only used for the less frequent used keys). On the left we have no less than 18 programmable keys and thanks to the extra 3 memory banks, we can assign a total of 54 macros on a single profile. The product integrates very well with the previously reviewed M90 mouse and the software is unified so we can access both mouse and keyboard interfaces from the same menu.
The Seagate FreeAgent GoFlext Ultra-Portable hard drive is more than just a portable 2.5" SATA HDD. key to the system's brilliant usefulness is that Seagate designed this hard drive to interface with a series of modular cable interface adaptors, docks and a media player. It's what you'd call, really very flexible.
If you are looking to extract the most performance out of any given processor you need it to stay cool. It doesn't matter if you go with Air, Water, or even Phase Change you still need some thermal interface compound between the cooler and the CPU. Maingear has been using the mother of all TIM's in their custom builds and now they are making available for everyone. Is this really the best TIM money can buy? Legit installs it into one of our high end water cooled rigs to find out.EPIC T1000 is a precision engineered Phase Change Metal. Alloy (PCMA) that maintains high contact with the metal surfaces of the IHS and the cooling block (surface wetting) and provides very low thermal resistance due to its high bulk conductivity. Testing has shown this can be as much as three times (3x) better performance than the best TIMs based on aluminum, silver, and diamond...
