Prior to about a year ago, ASRock boards were definitely in the economy class. Oh, they were decent, stable motherboards, but they just had the look and feel of inexpensive. Not so today, ASRock’s boards are just as nice as those built by the “household name” companies like Gigabyte, Asus, etc. Today I will be looking at the little brother to the P55 Deluxe, the ASRock P55 Extreme. I suppose “little brother” isn’t the correct term since the two are basically the same board with only one change I can see at first glance, but the savings are significant. As with all ASRock boards, you get what is a full-featured motherboard at an economy price. Read on to check out the P55 Extreme!

Today, I will be looking at a cooler from a company I previously haven’t experienced, the Titan Skalli. Titan Technology Ltd. has been around for over 20 years, founded in Taiwan in 1989 under the name “Sogic Computer Co”, but only recently have they entered the serious enthusiast market. The Skalli is a small-footprint dual heatpipe cooler with a non-standard 100mm fan. Will the Skalli keep my i7 870 nice and cool? Read on to see!
A little while ago we took a look at Kingston’s SSDNow V-Series 128GB solid state drive that was targeted at entry-level and mainstream users. Kingston had put out a V+ series drive which had better speeds and was targets at high-level users and corporate environments. Recently Kingston has developed a second-generation of the V+, which supports Windows 7 TRIM support, is available up to 512GB and provides faster performance over the previous version of the drive.
