NZXT Hue RGB LED Controller Review

Computer case lighting started with people taking lights made for cars and putting them in cases.  From there we got our own cold cathode lights made for computers and it just went on from there.  Back in 2010 we took a look at <a href="http://thinkcomputers.wpengine.com/nzxt-sleeved-led-kit-review/">NZXT’s sleeved LED kit</a>, which was a great way to light the inside of your case.  NZXT is back with another lighting solution called the Hue.  It combines a LED strip with a 5.25-inch bay device that you can use to control the LED’s.  The Hue is set to be one of the most customizable and easy to use lighting systems for your PC!  Read on as we check it out!

Samsung MV-3V4G3D DDR3-1600 8GB Memory Kit Review

Samsung are well known as manufacturers of consumer televisions, laptops and other electronics. Samsung’s SSDs have been gathering traction and some rave reviews across the industry, and also picking up steam are Samsung’s offerings to the memory sector. Available in 2GB or 4GB DIMMs, with kits available for 4GB, 8GB and in some locations, 16GB, Samsung have something available for every user. Rated at 1600Mhz at only 1.35v, the kit is designed to fit into the low voltage/green market segment. With stock timings of 11-11-11-28, these kits aren’t aimed at the performance consumer.. but knowing that these DIMMs also support higher voltages, lets see how far we can push them, shall we?
