ASUS Maximus VI Formula Motherboard Review

When ASUS launched their Republic of Gamers Z87 motherboards there was one that was missing, the Maximus VI Formula. They had already launched the Maximus VI Extreme, Hero, GeneZ and Impact boards. After a little while ASUS went ahead and finally launched the Maximus VI Formula motherboard. So why is this motherboard so special? Two things that really stand out about it is that it features the same Thermal Armor that ASUS has used on its TUF series of motherboards and it is the first ASUS motherboard to use the CrossChill hybrid air and water-cooling technology to keep the VRM’s nice and cool. Beyond that this is a Republic of Gamers board so you have Extreme Engine Digi+ III, SupremeFX Formula audio, Sonic Radar and a mPCIe Combo II with 802.11ac/Bluetooth 4.0.

Western Digital Black2 Dual Drive Review

When it comes down to it many people have to choose between hard drive speed or hard drive capacity, especially when it comes to laptops or small form factor systems. While solid state drives offer great speeds, they are quite expensive per GB. On the other hand typical mechanical hard drives offer a better value per GB, but are not as fast. Western Digital saw this problem and has come up with a solution in their WD Black2 Dual Drive. This drive features a 120 GB solid state drive along with a 1 TB mechanical hard drive. Now you may think that this is a hybrid drive where the SSD portion acts as cache, but this is actually two separate drives in one. This way you have the 120 GB portion for your OS and important programs and the 1 TB can be used for media and other files. More importantly this drive only takes up a single hard drive spot! Let’s check it out!
