Kingston HyperX Limited Edition DDR3-1600 4GB Dual Channel Memory Kit Review

Our friends over at Kingston have just sent us a 4GB kit of their Limited Edition HyperX DDR3-1600 low latency memory (KHX1600C7D3X1K2/4GX).  These modules are primarily being sold overseas (Russia/Eastern Europe).  They run at 1600MHz and have a CAS latency of 7 with timings of 7-8-7-20 at 1.65V.  Being that this kit only runs at 1600MHz and has low timings this should leave a lot of headroom for overclocking.  Read on and see how far we can push these modules.

Unboxing the OCZ Synapse Cache 64GB Solid State Drive

Today we are unboxing a rather small hard drive in terms of capacity as it is only 64GB. This drive is only 64GB because it is made to be a caching drive that is combined with your normal hard drive for improved performance. Since the release of the Z68 chipset from Intel we have been seeing these drives, but OCZ has their own software that enables this drive to become a caching drive on any PC system, not just an Intel Z68 system. Read on as we unboxing this drive and even open it up!

However, a CPU is only as great as the motherboard to which you pair it. While many sites used the AMD issued ASUS Crossfire V 990FX boards for their initial reviews (a great board I might add) we were able to use something different for our tests.

The GHOST cooler really is a thing of beauty and while I do not wish to pre-empt it's ability, if looks are anything to go by, this card will be one seriously cool customer. Looks however can be deceiving and none were this more so than with the XFX R7950. While the clock speeds may remain the same, the card is far from being a reference design. The PCB as we will see is very different from the stock design as it features XFX's 'X' features of both power management, cooling and on-board components which make this card truly 'custom'."</em> <hr> <a href="http://www.overclockersclub.com/reviews/xfx_sapphire_hd7950_3gb/" target="_blank">XFX & Sapphire HD 7950 3GB Review @ OCC</a> <em>"At stock speeds it offers predictable performance that is well ahead of previous generation parts and in just about every game ahead of NVIDIA's current high end parts.

Add in Eyefinity capabilities with a single card and the HD 7950 is a card that is a perfect upgrade path for those looking for top end performance but have a hard time shelling out $600 for the top line product. Even just less than $500 the HD 7950 is not a value proposition. Performance at stock and overclocked speeds make the XFX Black Edition Double Dissipation and Sapphire Overclocked Edition HD 7950 video card as potent upgrades to enjoy the latest games. Good looks, Custom cooling and PCB, Awesome performance, and more are good enough reasons to move to the HD 7900 series from Sapphire or XFX."</em> <hr> <a href="http://www.modders-inc.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story&reid=372" target="_blank">Sapphire HD 7950 OC Graphics Card @ Modders-Inc</a> <em>"With the HD 7970 already claiming the King of the Hill title, you know that the title comes a tall price tag.
