Cooling/Water Cooling by stefan @ 2020-11-25 read/post comments(0)

The iCUE H115i ELITE CAPELLIX AIO from CORSAIR does offer similar cooling performance versus the previously tested H115i RGB PRO XT model but improvements in terms of the pump lighting effects, a replaceable pump cover in order to fit your setup color scheme bur also the RGB variety of the ML fans (ML140 RGB series). If you do have other RGB fans inside the system from CORSAIR, the installation task is much simplified thanks to the included iCUE Commander CORE, which minimizes the number of cables used, has a port dedicated for the CAPELLIX AIO pump and we will only need a spare USB 2.0 header on the motherboard in order to have full control via iCUE software. read more

Crucial X6 2TB Portable SSD Review

Storage/SSD by stefan @ 2020-11-15 read/post comments(0)

Even if the X6 is no speed demon, it is considerably faster that other USB external storage we have previously tested; it is also very compact, so it fits well inside your pocket, while supporting the latest USB connection standard. The SATA-based drive does succeed to keep a constant performance even during longer usage sessions, without getting as hot as the X8. read more

Patriot Memory Viper Steel Series DDR4 32GB 3200MHz Memory Kit Review

Memory by stefan @ 2020-11-10 read/post comments(0)

The 32GB Viper Steel kit with its two memory modules does sport a modern design, without RGB lighting as we have seen with other models. These are made to be compatible with most AMD and Intel systems and should match the color scheme of a lot of gaming machines. While we could not squeeze any extra performance from the kit via overclocking by using safe voltages (up to 1.4V), this also means that the ICs are really accurately hand picked in the factory so they will only function error-free at the exact specifications mentioned by Patriot Memory. read more


Storage/SSD by stefan @ 2020-11-04 read/post comments(1)

The Vulcan G SSD from TEAMGROUP is meant as an upgrade for entry level and mainstream systems, both which still use a regular HDD as a boot drive. Those in question will notice quite a speed boost overall, while the 512GB of storage should be enough for a lot of installations. By using TLC NAND Flash and a DRAMless controller solution, the overall sale price is brought down considerably. The only downside can be considered the fact that if we do write to the drive continuously, the speed will drop eventually after the SLC pseudo-cache has been filled up. read more

Silicon Power Armor A62 IPX4 Waterproof and Shockproof 4TB Portable HDD Review

Storage/HDD by stefan @ 2020-10-30 read/post comments(0)

It is quite great that we are now seeing 2.5’’ portable drives breaking the 2TB barrier and are now available with capacities of up to 5TB (not counting the multi-drive enclosures). The MQ04ABB400 drive enclosed in the Armor A62 with 4TB of storage capacity does have a rotational speed of 5400RPM and makes use of the 128MB of cache for boosting read/write speeds when using lots of small files. While this model is noted by Toshiba as being highly reliable, Silicon Power builds on this and includes a rugged plastic/silicone casing for IPX4 water resistance, is 122cm military grade shockproof, while the textured surface protects against scratches and fingerprints. read more
