Re: A Benchmark For Just SSDs - AS SSD Benchmark

The 4k-64 test uses 64 queue depth! SandForce shows only good performance on compressable(for example zeros only like other benchmarks) data. My Benchmark uses pseudo-random data that cant be compressed-> SandForce performes bad. I stand corrected! ;-) BUT if that's the case you should think about ...

Re: A Benchmark For Just SSDs - AS SSD Benchmark

Great tool except that without being able to adjust your queue depth you won't get real world performance results. The results don't measure how performance scales when you're able to take advantage of NCQ. It appears to me (us) that it's set at a queue depth of 1 so SandForce based drives are never...

Re: Silicon Power Releases DDR3-1333/1066 Dual Channel Pack

It's only 1333 or 1066 DDR3; I could stick pop tarts in my sockets and feel pretty comfortable that they'd work at that speed.

You need to be VERY careful about changing bytes in the JEDEC portion of the SPD. For instance if you reprogrammed the tRC on a module with a standard PC6400 SPD to make it run at a tRC of 15 at PC10000 automatically your BIOS would try to set up the tRC at 9 which might not allow your system to eve...

heatspreaders do nothing. Its been proven. Unless you have water in them like OCZ, they do nothing good airflow can't do. And you've done the research and published the white papers to support that? Fact: DDR1 might not have seen the huge performance increase that DDR2 does with advanced cooling bu...

Btw, just noticed the reviewer made a mistake on saying 38A on the +12V rails. The max output is 360W on +12V, so it’s actually only 30A.

Kingston doesn't have a Fab, hence they don't make RAM's. They might buy bare die and have it packaged with their name on the IC, or they might have purchased blank TSOP's and had their logo burned in, but they didn't make the silicon inside...

Nate,

Man, that's a lot of memory. Assuming those are all 512MB DDR1 (I know they aren't) modules there that's a bunch of RAM.

Hope you've got your gun handy. =P

You should RMA it directly with the mfg then and hash out who pays for shipping with them... Or, you could choose to take your business elsewhere next time and pay more for every component because they're building the cost of paying for the shipping on the occasional defective product into the price...
