Which DDR3 SDRAM is better for Ivy Bridge

The overclocker memory is now in the category of products for perfectionists, still the common users are pleased with usual modules DDR3-1600 or DDR3-1333 SDRAM. The issue appears related to the release of processors Ivy Bridge series, which in some aspects are similar to its predecessors, still have some distinctive features.



Ivy Bridge processors are restricted on the maximum frequency supported by the DDR3 SDRAM. This indicates the theoretical chance of these processors work with high-speed memory DDR3-3200 SDRAM. Developers of overclocker memory package perceived the change in rules with certain enthusiasm: there are DDR3-2400 modules available in stores. The gap in frequencies of «elite» and «running» versions of the memory has grown twice in size. It won’t have a noteworthy blow on the work of commonly used tasks in systems.


The memory controller in the Ivy Bridge can work both in symmetric mode, with delay, frequency and volume modules in memory channels, and …

The New Fan from Antec – Rainbow 120 RGB – Will Be Available at the Price of 15 EUR

The range of Antec chassis fans has been widened by the Rainbow 120 RGB model. Its name suggests, that this product is of 120 mm typical size. LED backlighting of Rainbow 120 RGB renders up to 256 shades to produce dynamic effects or covers up to seven colours in the static mode. Moreover, the setup chosen by the user is supported after the PC switching off. The backlighting is adjusted just by pushing a little button.



The special blade configuration directs air flow to the outer side, thus increasing the static pressure level and enhancing the process of flows distribution inside the system unit. Fluid bearings extend the service life, and fan rubber pads at the places of mounting holes lower the vibration and noise level.


The top rotational speed of Rainbow 120 RGB is 1,200 rpm, and the air flow capacity equals to 1.2 m3/min. This device possesses a three-pin power supply connector and features the 12 V nominal voltage. The noise factor is not higher than 24.8 dBA.

The Forthcoming Switch to 5 mm HDD Models

Nowadays HDD segment is represented by various products from various companies. However, with the development and release of ultrabooks, manufacturers directed their production to the hybrid-type drives. This resulted in the predominance of hybrid solutions in the market.



Recently Itel has advanced a motion to digress somehow from the production of hybrid drives and switch to the decrease of traditional HDDs dimensions to 5 mm in casing depth. According to the company's assumptions, such change could moderate the price for drives and provide the necessary volume capacity for ultrabooks.


Some manufacturers have already directed a part of their technological powers to the design of HDDs with 5 mm casings. Nevertheless, there appeared a couple of obstacles on their way: the necessity to stabilize data reading and writing activities, and increase of costs spent on drives' production. This will result in the rise of end price.
