    Overclocking Web Magazine

    I'm not sure if we have any computer hardware people here, but just the format on this is really cool to me. They really take advantage of the web style rather than just scanning $#@! into pdf's. Check it out

    That's a great way to display a magazine in an electronic format, really nice.

    Used to follow that mag back in the day when I was building pc's trying to go for top 3dmark scores and so forth. These days don't game as much or follow computer hardware closely either. I never ever thought I would switch to a laptop for everything.

    Yeah I'm definitely behind the hardware scene these days, but I think it's ok. One money pit hobby is enough for me. I do like catching up from time to time because there's some crazy $#@! out there. I thought the PCI-E solid state hard disk was crazy, but apparently if you want to truely be hardcore the newest hotness is a drive you make with straight up RAM lol. Wonder what the $ per gig on that is, heh

    Nah outside of dropping it's data occasionally it's a regular SATA drive. I believe they are still SATA 2 currently though. People don't really knock the stability from what I understand because of the blazingly fast speeds it spits out and you really aren't going to use it unless you are really schnerious about your hardware and probably have duplicate backups, besides knowing the issues going in. It's really just a 3DMark etc benchmarking beast mode tool.

    Is the difference of a solid state drive really warranted?

    Why does it drop data?

    Thats funny. I used to be a 3dmark freak also. I barely upgrade my computer nowadays, or play games. I buy a buncha games thru steam and dont ever play them. My lady hates them video games, so I stopped for good. Anyways, the animations in that magazine are awesome, makes it much more enjoyable to read.

    I don't have the data rates in front of me, but from what I understand it's multiple times faster. It drops due to ram being volatile memory, aka needing a constant power source. So when you turn the computer off it needs a battery power source, but I guess it isn't integrated 110% yet. Any hick-up in power and it's gone.

    Yeah it's was pretty sweet. Also everything I wanted to click in the mag was hyperlinked. That's gotta be great for advertisers and I know it was convenient as a consumer. Win Win

    Thanks for the link - looking at rigs from OCN (overclock.net) I'm left speechless every visit. Some guy hit 5ghz+ on the newest chipset from intel, aka Sandy Bridge...

    Nice to have this to read Click here to enlarge

    That makes sense, if a constant source of power is kept it should be fine right?
