Guys, just wondering why a lot of you are recommending vertex 4? vertex 4 slows down when you are beyond 50% capacity, and it toggles from “performance mode” to ‘”storage mode”. Basically your drive will have a significant reduce of performance, you can Google storage mode vertex 4 if you want, all reviewers mention it, Toms Hardware, Anandtech etc.
Tekkie Tekkie Muna (Slow down at bumaba muna sa kabayong mabilis), did you now that SSDs are now slowly replacing HDDs, probably because there’s a significant loading time speed performance improvement.
If you’re still on HDDs then its either your current PC speed is still tolerable for you, or you didn’t know there was an SSD, …..or you just don’t care mainly because you’re just using your PC as a word processor.
But if ever you would like to replace your Jurassic hard drives, here are some reviews and recommendations.
Mineral oil isn’t conductive. The hot PC components will transfer heat to the mineral oil but there is so much mineral oil that it would be hard to heat it all up.
…and you can put a Video card also on the motherboard.
The Beauty Is Now The Beast!
Imagine the performance of a traditional high performance gaming luggable but in an ultra-portable form factor.
The new Razer Blade now comes packed with extreme levels of performance – featuring a future 3rd Generation Intel Quad Core Processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX660M, 8GB 1600Mhz RAM, three USB 3.0 ports, and a 64GB SSD/500
Overclocking Basics (particular to Intel systems, though many of the concepts apply to AMD systems as well)
1) Limitations – Each hardware component has physical limitations that, at a minimum, meet the rated (stock) specifications. In the process of thoroughly overclocking a system, the actual limitations of various components will be found. In general, the CPU, RAM, and motherboard will control the overclock, but other components such as the PSU and cooling will have a major impact on overclocking abilities. Depending on which of the three primary components (CPU, RAM, and mobo) is the first to reach its limits, different steps can be taken to squeeze more out of the other components. Video card overclocking is generally independent of overclocking the components previously listed.
Hot report out of Bloomberg, just now, that Motorola will be releasing a phone with no bezel.
As per invite above, Motorola has an event with Intel scheduled for September 18th. To the edge? I’m starting to think this might actually happen. An all-screen device – one step closer to that sci-fi future we see in the movies. I could not be more excited.
