Corsair Dominator GT 2133MHz CMT4GX3M2B2133C9

tested by ocaholic


The Dominator GT series is Corsairs flagship. As soon as you take a closer look at the specifications you’ll see that they are very serious. Accordingly the DIMMs need only 1.5 Volt to operate at 2133 MHz with 9-10-9-27 timings.

We generally recommend this memory kit to PC-Enthusiasts as well as overclockers and extreme overclockers. At the moment it is really difficult to find modules that perform better than these Dominator GTs.


GSkill Ripjaws F3-12800CL8D-4GBRM 2Gx2

tested by rwlabs


The GSkill RipJaws PC12800 DDR3 CL7 4GB kit was tested with both its default speed of 1600MHz @ CL7-8-7-24/1.6v but also overclocked to 1800MHz @ CL8-9-8-24/1.65v. The only issue is that although at 1600MHz our stable CPU overclock was at 4.2GHz when we overclocked the modules and reached to 1800MHz we could not climb above 3.8GHz so do take into consideration that you should be able to climb even higher with a different mainboard or different BIOS settings.

GSkill Ripjaws kit has the perfect price/performance ratio for people with P55 boards. The timings are great (CL7), you can easily squeeze 200MHz more by slightly upping the voltages and buying a total of 8GB should cost almost the same as buying an 4GB kit by another brand. True this kit is not the fastest one around and GSkill has already manufactured their own 2500MHz kit but in the end it all comes down to what you need and can afford. For us the RipJaws F3-12800CL7D-4GBRM is the perfect P55 companion, especially if you manage to hit the sweet frequency spot between the CPU and the modules and for that we award it our Real Deal Editor’s Choice Award.

Mach Xtreme Technology MX-FX series MXUB3MFX-32G

tested by tweaktown


Today we are looking at the Mach Xtreme MX-FX USB 3.0 thumb drive. Physically the MX-FX looks a lot like the Patriot Magnum; they share the same external aluminium housing, but the Magnum is a USB 2.0 drive and the MX-FX makes use of USB 3.0 technology. Mach Xtreme is offering the MX-FX in 16, 32, 64 and 128GB capacity sizes.
