DDR2 & DDR3 Dual and Triple Channel Memory Roundup: Corsair, Patriot, GeIL, Elixir -

"Recently the Modreactor lab got flooded with various memory kits. And though initially we were considering a series of reviews, eventually we decided to write a single mega article comparing different type, latency, volume and frequency modules in not only scaling performance and different platforms, but also in the field of subjective general feel about them, describing what we liked (or disliked) in each of them. And so, it's about time we get to the ultimate comparison of DDR2 and DDR3 memory kits with Core 2, Core i7 and Phenom II based systems!"

Compucase Cougar 6XR9 -

Das Cougar recht passable Netzteile baut, ist uns bereits aus diversen Tests bekannt. Die orange Farbgestaltung macht die Produkte so markant und zieht momentan überall die Aufmerksamkeit auf sich. Doch Compucase/Cougar ist genauso als Hersteller von Gehäusen bekannt. Daher haben wir heute den Midi-Tower 6XR9 in unserem Testlabor, um diesen detailliert beurteilen zu können.

Kingston SSDNow V+ Series 64GB Solid State Disk -

"Just recently we reviewed the Kingston SSDNow V Series drive that uses the JMicron 602 controller which has been reworked by Kingston and Toshiba. The V Series has a very respectable price performance ratio, but it is hardly what I would call an enthusiasts product. Just hours after our review of the V Series Kingston announced their V+ Series of drives in 64, 128 and 256GB capacities. Just like the original V Series press release, the controller used for the product line was not listed.

Watt Leistung und vielen Anschlüssen geht, ist die Auswahl dünn gesät. Das

The style is feminine, classy and the tiny size is convenient for the traveling laptop user."

MSI X58M - klein und günstig! -

Nachdem DFI und ASUS ein X58 Mainboard im µATX-Formfaktor vorgestellt haben, zieht MSI mit dem X58M nach und nimmt sich dem bisher größten
Kritikpunkt an, dem Preis! Die bereits getesteten Kandidaten für den Core i7 fielen durch eine umfangreiche Ausstattung und hohe Leistung auf, jedoch
musste man für Preise um die 200,- Euro tief in die Tasche greifen. MSI verlangt für das X58M sehr viel angenehmere 160,- Euro, aber muss man dafür
Abstriche machen?
