Corsair Neutron GTX 240GB SSD RAID 0 Performance @ Legit Reviews
As expected, pairing a couple of drives like the Neutron GTX's which already put up superb performance numbers singularly, really kicks up performance to a whole new level. In fact, in most of our tests, the throughputs nearly doubled from what we saw on a single drive. With the LAMD controller, we barely saw any difference between compressible and incompressible data which translates to a more even real world experience...

As someone who has long felt that MMO games have been following the path of ease for far too long now, an article posted over at MMORPG.com by former World of Warcraft developer Mark Kern caught my eye immediately. His question is simple: have MMOs become too easy?
His answer is “yes”, and it’s a pretty definitive one. Despite being WoW‘s original team leader, he has no qualm about pointing out its faults. Sure, the game is Blizzard’s pride and joy – it did quickly become the most popular MMO on the planet, after all, and from a business perspective, the game hit the ball out of the park. From a gamer perspective, though, Kern feels that Blizzard effectively “killed a genre“.

Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have Gonzalo Galvan's Pipe Fusion build. Here is what he had to say about it: It's my second project, but the first with such dedication, at first were some simple changes but slowly began to appear new ideas that led me to change the entire interior to adapt to the watercooling. I am very happy with the mod to be better than I expected.

With the recent release of the GeForce series 7 graphics cards NVIDIA has once again taken the crown for the single most powerful graphics processing unit and although many of us hope that AMD can bring something to match them soon for the sake of competition (and in turn lower prices) things are not that easy. Regardless however although all three cards announced in the series 7 are quite remarkable not everyone has the ability to get one and so with series 6 prices naturally taking a significant hit this just might be the best time for people to invest on one of the previous generation models. Today on our test bench we have the last addition in the GeForce series 6 line by Gainward the 650 Ti BOOST 2GB Golden Sample.

Cooler Master is certainly one of the most recognized brands within the enclosure market as they strive to deliver performance oriented cases at reasonable prices. The N200 mATX enclosure is something different since it is one of the few budget-focused cases on the market that can give higher end models a run for their money.
As the need for larger cases ceases, we are now seeing many manufacturers saturating the market with smaller enclosures to satisfy the growing desire for compact yet enthusiast flavored models. N200 fits the niche pretty well, given its small design with a punch of water cooling options for $49. Yes, that's right: $49.
