Classic Shell 4.0 Review @ Dedoimedo
As you know, I really like Classic Shell. It is a superb little piece of software that allows Windows users to choose their application menu layout, going all the way back to the old looks, if they like. It works for all Windows editions, and most importantly, it allows Windows 8 users to get rid of the stupid Start Screen and use a normal menu on their desktops.
I have highlighted the great importance of this program on many occasions, even going as far back as the Windows XP and Windows 7 transition. Then, I told you how it was going to save Microsoft from complete failure, by providing an alternative to disappointed users, and allowing them to keep using Windows 8. The same applies to the equally colossal failure successor called Windows 8.1, which we have discussed several weeks ago. Now, there's a new version of Classic Shell out, and it's even better than before.

Corsair sell a lot of components for PCs: memory, cases, SSDs, cooling, peripherals and power supplies to name their current lineup. For that last element, Corsair have released a new range of 'ultra-quiet' fully modular power supplies, dubbed the RM series. These PSUs replace the TX Series line while offering 80 PLUS Gold across the range, meaning a minimum energy efficiency at 87% for 20% load and 90% for 50% load (88%/92% respectively for 230V AC).

For the first time for as long as I can remember, I am sitting here stunned at what I just learned, and experienced, in new technology. Just as I could use words such as amazing, unbelievable and remarkable to describe the Super Talent Dram Disk, I could also guarantee your amazement by letting you in on the fact that ST Dram Disk's PCMark Vantage results brought in a Total Point Score of 851915 and a top transfer speed of 5007MB/s while conducting tests. Not believing this, we decided to transfer a 2.5GB 1080P video file to measure transfer speeds and it couldn't be done as this file was transferred in tenth's of a second, if not faster. Do we have your attention yet?
