Sandy Bridge, by now you all know the name and you know that Intel’s new processors blew the socks off almost anything out there. With this whole new architecture comes a new line of components made specifically for Sandy Bridge. Today we will be taking a look at some memory from our friends at G.Skill. A little while back we took a look at their 1600 MHz Ripjaws memory and today we are checking out the 2133 MHz Ripjaws-X memory, more specifically the Ripjaws-X F3-17000CL9D-8GBXLD kit. This kit runs at 2133 MHz with timings of 9-11-9-28 at 1.65v. Let’s take a look at this memory and see if it is perfect for your Sandy Bridge setup.
A little while ago we took a look at Patriot’s Viper Xtreme triple channel memory that is designed for Intel X58 systems. Today we are checking out the Viper Xtreme Division 2 Edition memory which is designed for Intel’s 2nd generation “Sandy Bridge” Core processors. This memory has been rigorously tested and validated on the Intel 6 Series platform to achieve maximum performance and stability. The Division 2 memory has all of the same features as the original Viper Xtreme memory like the 6 gram copper core and aircraft-grade aluminum heatspreaders. Today we will be putting the 8GB DDR3-1866 kit to the test.
Corsair is a company that we all know for memory and rightfully so, their Dominator Series of memory has been the flagship for their DDR3 line for some time now. Today we will be looking at a new enthusiast line of memory called Vengeance. The Vengeance line is aggressively priced and with a lower voltage rating of 1.5V instead of the normal 1.65V you should be able to these modules to the limit. Today we will be taking a look at the 8GB 1600MHz dual channel DDR3 kit (CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9) and putting it through it’s paces. Read on to see how well them perform!
We are here to yet again do a review on another DDR3 dual channel memory kit. With the standards basically being for DDR3 kits to be 1600Mhz. They are widely used on the AMD AM3 platform to Intel 1156 and 1366 setups as well. DDR3 kits range everywhere from 1066Mhz to the 2500Mhz. When DDR3 1600MHz was coming around to be one of the most popular memory kits, the G.Skill Ripjaws where the best value for the offering. Now today a few months later we are here to put them to the test.
Four years ago Corsair introduced the Flash Voyager USB drive, a USB drive that was practically indestructible. A Year after that they came out with the Flash Padlock, u USB drive that had a keypad on the front that allowed you to lock and unlock it to protect your data.

So not only can you protect your data with a key code you get the awesome protection of the Flash Voyager design.
Today we have the chance to look at yet another Godfather flash drive. This time we are taking a look at the Rubber model, instead of the swivel version we took a look at a few days ago.
