iBuyPower Element PC Review: Intel i7-7900X & Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti

Introduction Most of the readers that will frequent a hardware review site will swear by the experience of building their own custom PC. Price, performance and customization are all highlights we love to point out, but sometimes we like to overlook the problems like compatibility, DOAs, and tons of troubleshooting. If you’re a troubleshooter by nature, then building a PC is the perfect way to appeal to that need for figuring out problems. If you aren’t then the idea of building your own gaming PC is probably a nightmare! So what are gamers supposed to do if they want performance on a custom built level, but are afraid to dive into putting their own components together? The answer that you shouldn’t go to is to buy a Dell. Perhaps the real answer is to look at a company like iBuyPower. They have custom built PCs that are pre-assembled and pre-configured so that a buyer has little to worry about on their end. The only question is if the company is offering a worthwhile system to spend your hard-earned cash on.

GeIL Evo X DDR4 3200 Memory Review

Introduction Wait a second! Didn’t we already see an Evo X RAM review already!?! Alright, you may have caught us, but there’s a really good explanation for it. Uh…. You know what, let’s not look a gift horse in the mouth and just enjoy a second review, shall we? That said, DDR4 has increased at an incredible rate and some boards that are just a couple of years old have trouble keeping up with the higher frequencies already. Being PureOC, we wanted to make sure we got to take advantage of top stock frequencies and push a little past that as well. As such, we’ll mostly skip the packaging and closer look fan fairs. I’ll include a link to the previous review since it has those categories already, but I’ll also post video so you can get a closer look there as well. Since we have the Gigabyte Aorus Z270X Gaming 7 motherboard, we’ll be able to show off some nice RAM speeds as a result. We’ll get into the testing soon enough, but first let’s check out the company statement from GeIL one more time and thank them again for sending another sample our way. GeIL – Golden Emperor International Ltd. – one of the worlds’ leading PC components & peripheral manufacturers that concentrate in making the most innovative products, from memory modules, power supply units to gaming peripherals, for PC enthusiasts worldwide. Established in 1993, GeIL has soon become one of the most trusted memory professionals in the industr...



GEIL EVO X DDR4 RGB DDR4 3000 32GB Kit Overview

Introduction Where to start? I have in my grubby little paws a set of GEIL EVO X DDR4 3000 32GB (2 x 16GB) sticks of RAM. As if that isn’t fantastic enough, it’s RGB lit! High Speed RAM and Glowy Bits. What’s not to like? First things first, let me lay something out here and now. I’ve been building computers since 1993, and in all those years, I have never used a product from GEIL. Ever. This seems a bit strange to me since as it turns out, GEIL was established in the same year (1993) that I began building PC’s. To be fair, in those days just getting a PC to work was my primary concern and the concept of “Performance” and “RAM” didn’t have any meaning when associated with my 386DX/33 based system. Over the years, I’ve seen GEIL mentioned in reviews and occasionally noted them as being for sale on NewEgg or similar sites, but for some reason I’ve never picked any up. It doesn’t seem like I’m alone either. Do some searching for GEIL and you’ll find threads on many US Tech Sites that ask about who GEIL is and if they’re any good. Interestingly, the reviews I’ve read of their RAM (often by European based websites) say positive things about GEIL RAM and it’s clear that GEIL is more readily available and more heavily marketed in the Far East and Europe than we find to be the case here in the USA. To be fair to GEIL, it’s also got to be tough to compete against entren...



Memory Speed vs. Latency – Clearing up the Confusion

Introduction We love speed as much as the next performance seeker, and many of us spend great sums of money and loads of time trying to optimize our systems, find the best parts for a new build, and squeezing every bit out of components. Admittedly, some components are easier to overclock or extract maximum performance, some are more difficult, and some are, well, just plain misunderstood. It’s probably a fair and reasonable statement to say that memory performance is one component typically found in the last category. The crux of the issue often comes down to how we perceive and “rate” memory performance, and the two most critical factors which influence that performance: speed and latency. There seems to be some significant misinformation and misunderstanding, and we see it often in the forums, in review comments, and elsewhere. So we decided to go straight to the experts to find out how these two factors influence memory performance: we talked with Crucial. Crucial is a global brand of Micron Technology, one of the world’s foremost leaders in memory design and manufacturing. They not only produce their own performance products and memory lineups (as well as SSDs, flash drives, and all other things related to memory), but they are also OEM suppliers to some of the biggest names in the industry. Needless to say, Crucial knows memory. We briefly spoke with Jeremy Mortenson, who is the Worldwide Memory Product Marketing Manager at Crucial, and asked ...

Crucial Expands DDR4 Server Memory Portfolio

Crucial, a leading global brand of memory and storage upgrades, has expanded its DDR4 memory portfolio with LRDIMM and VLP RDIMM modules. Designed to enable next-generation enterprise environments with increased speed, bandwidth, and energy efficiency, Crucial DDR4 load reduced DIMMs (LRDIMMs) and very low profile registered DIMMS (VLP RDIMMs) are available for immediate purchase through select global channel partners and at www.crucial.com. Crucial DDR4 LRDIMMs By utilizing a memory buffer chip that helps reduce the electrical load presented to the memory bus, Crucial DDR4 LRDIMMs allow for more DIMMs per channel and are up to 50 percent more energy efficient and deliver up to 50 percent more memory bandwidth than DDR3 LRDIMMs. Furthermore, by using less voltage and standby current, Crucial DDR4 LRDIMMs transmit power in a more efficient manner to the CPU, allowing for additional power savings and lower total cost of ownership. Crucial DDR4 VLP RDIMMs Designed for space-constrained form factors like blade servers, Crucial DDR4 VLP RDIMMs measure just 18.7mm in height and are 40 percent shorter than standard-size modules for improved airflow, enabling more effective cooling. Additionally, Crucial DDR4 VLP RDIMMs offer up to twice the speed and the bandwidth, and are up to 40 percent more energy efficient than DDR3 VLP RDIMMs at introduction. “The addition of DDR4 LRDIMM and VLP RIDMM modules expands our overall DDR4 server memory offering as Crucial continues its commitm...
