With that out the way, it’s worth looking at the main area of this drive, which is all about the internals as you’d expect. Not only does this drive feature the famous Sandforce controller, but also includes SanDisks very own asynchronous NAND flash memory, which is quite a big acomplishment in its own right. An exciting time is upon us when we see a new set of memory chips come on the market, and we’re interested to see how they perform when we get down to it, but first we should have a look at what you get included when you buy this brand new product from SanDisk.


The second in my series of Antec reviews is the Kühler H²O 620, another self-contained liquid cooling unit for your CPU. The Kühler H²O 620 is a more basic, simple and cheaper version of the Kühler H²O 920.

When Intel launched their latest high end X79 platform, Kitguru was on hand with three, detailed reviews. One of the most impressive talking points with X79 is the use of Quad channel memory, which delivers substantially higher bandwidth results than anything else on the market.

The Xmas holidays seem to be a truly cross-cultural idea for the 21st century. No matter what your individual beliefs, there’s something really cool about doing nice things for others – including trying to put a smile on their faces when they open up the presents.

“It all started on a beautiful summer day at the lakeside of Zurich where Magnus Huber founded this company and has continuously embraced the idea of “Spirit of Innovation”. For ARCTIC, innovations are meaningless unless it brings more pleasant experiences for people. We strongly believe that these experiences need to be “unexpected” in order for people to remember them. Therefore, we are really celebrating PLEASANT SURPRISES with everyone.”
