Gaming Friday: Tribes Ascend Beta

Unboxing the Samsung 830 Series Solid State Drive

Samsung is not really a name many people consider when it comes to solid state drives, but maybe people should. Today we are unboxing their 830 Series solid state drive that is built on all Samsung Parts. It is running Samsung's own 3-core ARM-based processor, Samsung's own cache chip and of course Samsung's own flash memory. Because Samsung is using their own parts they not only have full control over the operation of the drive, but they also can keep costs down because they control the demand of their own parts. Oh did I mention this drive is only 7mm thin? Read on to check out our unboxing and overview video!

Logitech K800 Wireless Illuminated Keyboard Review

When you find a keyboard you like you never want to change, my keyboard is the one component of my main system that has not changed since 2007!  Logitech released the <a href="https://www.thinkcomputers.org/index.php?x=reviews&id=575">diNovo Edge keyboard</a> back in 2007 and even since it has been my main keyboard.  Surprisingly enough logitech still makes it and it sells for just about the same price.  I think after 5 years it is time to move on to a new keyboard and I think the K800 wireless keyboard may just be the right keyboard.  It has some of the same features of the diNovo Edge as well as some new ones.  Read on and see if the K800 can make me let go of my 5 year old diNovo Edge.

G.Skill RipjawsZ DDR3-2133 16GB Quad Channel Memory Kit Review

With Intel’s X79 chipset we started to see quad channel DDR3 memory.  It is crazy to think that in just a short period of time we have gone from dual channel to quad channel memory.  Not long after Intel released the X79 platform we started to see quad channel kits designed and certified specifically for the platform.  Today we are taking a look at one such kit, the G.Skill RipjawsZ DDR3-2133 16GB quad channel kit (F3-17000CL9Q-16GBZH).   This kit features four 4GB modules that run at 2133MHz with timings of 9-11-10-28.  Read on as we take a look at our first quad channel memory kit.
