Mad Shrimps: Crucial 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR5-5200 Memory Kit Review

The new 5200MHz memory modules from Crucial are a great improvement in terms of overclocking versus their 4800MHz counterparts we have tested before, being able to reach 5800MHz without too much of a hassle, just by increasing the stock voltage to 1.25 and keeping the timings as the manufacturer...

APH Networks: Crucial CT2K16G56C46U5 DDR5-5600 2x16GB Review

As an introvert, I find it easy to see people multiple times, but not necessarily get to know who they are or even finding out their name. For example, as part of helping out my girlfriend with her shop I talked about in the DeepCool GT920 review introduction, I have been meeting a lot of new people, and most of them are the vendors that take part in these events. However, I only know a handful of them by their name. Whenever I do recognize them, I would wave sheepishly or say "Oh, you're with [shop name]." This would also be the same with other people, who would say I was with Appopi, which is the name of my girlfriend’s business. In some ways, I think my personality plays a part, but I also think it is just the fact the interactions with these vendors are limited to event days only. Unfortunately, it has made for some awkward feelings of wanting to know their name but being too scared to ask. Names are quite important, as I think most people would rather be known by their given name and not by something they are attributed to, such as their shop. In a similar fashion, product names are important, as it helps differentiate one from another. In the case of today, we have the Crucial CT2K16G56C46U5 DDR5-5600 2x16GB. We have seen other Crucial DDR5 RAM, including the CT2K16G52C42U5 and CT2K16G48C40U5. While all of these names look very similar on first glance, you can see in the details the numbers are quite different. Our review today covers the fastest OEM-grade RAM from Crucial with their DDR5-5600 offering. The name may be hard to remember, but what about its performance? Does this increase in transfer rates make this more desirable? Let us read on to find out!

Crucial’s DDR5-5600 comes with the most capable Micron IC’s we’ve ever tried, but how well does it compete?

Hardware Busters: Super Flower Leadex VII Gold 1000W (SF-1000F14XG) PSU Review

Super Flower became known worldwide through its collaboration with EVGA, which brought us products like the legendary G2, P2, and T2 models. There were times when Super Flower led the race in performance and efficiency. Still, it stopped being in the spotlight for several reasons, especially when its exclusive cooperation with EVGA ended. EVGA is now in deep financial problems, and Super Flower is pushing more on selling products under its own name, as Seasonic does, and doesn’t seem to care so much anymore for selling platforms to other brands. I am happy to see Super Flower pushing new products on the market because this manufacturer has potential. We need more players in the field to provide potential buyers with a wider range of options.
