Samsung 860 EVO M.2 SATA3 SSD Review (2TB)

There comes a time when we all just need to stop, sit back and think; take a look around and reassess our direction perhaps.  The SSD industry is a beautiful example of this.  SSDs were introduced some 11 years ago now, although flash technology had been in use prior.  Today, there isn’t a person in the world that hasn’t been …

MyDigitalSSD SBX M.2 NVMe SSD Review (128GB/256GB/512GB)

Things have changed a lot since we have started reviewing SSDs. They have gone from the highest priced parts, only few could afford, to something that almost everyone can buy for a reasonable price…depending on how much space you really need that is.

Building an ASRock X299 Fatal1ty Test Bench with the i9-7900x

So you just built a brand new Z270 PC and Intel comes out with the newest X299 ahead of schedule.  Is it worth the bump to have the latest and greatest… or do you stick with the Z?  If you are a media professional or high end user that needs every core you can get, the Intel Skylake-X i9-7900x is a monster with …

BIOSTAR G330 SSD Review (256GB)

BIOSTAR isn’t the first name to come to mind when thinking about SSDs. Even for us, we didn’t even recall ever seeing a BIOSTAR SSD until today. They aren’t entirely new to the game, however. Last year at about this time, they released their first SSD, the G300. Utilizing SMI’s popular 2256 controller at the time, it put out some …
