Solid-State Drive OCZ Agility 4 Review

Up-to-date SSD manufacturers are inclined to employ MLC flash-memory with synchronous interface in their product lines. The implementation of exactly such memory interface allows balancing the advanced performance with moderate price. This is especially vital for SSDs with SATA 3 6Gb/sec interface. Nevertheless, some producers take the challenge to implement flash-memory with asynchronous interface in their drives. As a result, the final products go at more attractive price but with more modest speed characteristics. OCZ dared to overcome this speed drawback by releasing SSD Agility 4 series. The models included in the series are based on asynchronous flash-memory interface and, according to the company's words, prove to show quite decent speed index.

Chief Peculiarities

Despite the prevalence of SandForce controllers implemented in SSDs, OCZ decided to use quite different platform for its new series. Agility 4 employs Indilinx Everest 2 controllers which, in some way, …

Thermaltake Unveils Extraordinary Core G3 PC Chassis

Thermaltake decided to gladden its fans with the release of an offbeat chassis – the Core G3. The new-comer is differentiated by a slim profile (454x371x140 mm); however, it might be used for the fitting of various gaming configurations. Despite Slim Tower framework, the model is able to accommodate motherboards of full ATX form-factor with two expansion slots.

Thermaltake Core G3 might be employed as vertically so horizontally. Inner space is sufficient for the integration of 310-mm long graphics cards, SFX power supply units as well as 110-mm high CPU coolers. Besides, the availability of PCI Express riser allows for the mounting of the videocard in dual positions: parallel or perpendicular to the motherboard.

In order to enhance cooling performance, the user is free to integrate a liquid cooling system with a 240-mm heatsink. Initially, the chassis is furnished with two frontal 120-mm fans; one more 120-mm fan can be installed on the top facet. All cooling slots are …
