High-Speed DDR3 Review Series Performance

Now that most manufacturers have tooled up for long-term DDR3 production, there are only a few companies still releasing high-performance system memory for the DDR2 platform. With the favored P35 and X38 chipsets already making waves, Intel is preparing for their upcoming launch of P45 and X48 series northbridge chipsets including the much anticipated X45. This news means that those initial DDR3 kits may as well be called generation one or some other name denoting obsolete equipment, because today Benchmark Reviews is revealing the new evolution in high-performance DDR3 kits. Our comparison review and overclocking series will feature all speeds of PC3 memory, from the outrageous XMP-enhanced high-speed 1866MHz DDR3 to the entry-level 1066MHz, and everything in-between.

Thermalright SI-128 CPU Cooler

Built upon the SI-120 model which was popular with overclockers and enthusiasts, the new and improved SI-128 boasts tightly gapped fins for more surface area with longer and wider wingspan. In addition, the huge 8mm multiple heatpipes permit even more efficient heat transfer to the aluminum fins for better cooling. The SI-128 offers a more robust aluminum fin group, which is perfectly designed to support a 120mm fan mounted onto the top of the unit for maximum cooling performance. Join Benchmark Reviews in testing the Thermalright SI-128 CPU Cooler for this hardware review.

Antec P180B Performance One ATX Case

Computer cases are the face and body of a computer. With that said the range of different designs for computer cases can span the gamut, with something available for everyone. Since most consumers have become more performance minded and possibly more personal, it seems expected that builders and enthusiasts have finally evolved to think outside the beige box.

For this hardware review, I will take a in-depth look at the Antec P180B ATX computer case from their Performance One lineup. As with most Antec cases, the name doesn't say much. Thankfully, I have plenty of images to help compensate for the lack of a colorful name.
