I've been playing quite a bit of the Starcraft II beta recently, and I've come to realize one thing -- I'm not very good. There was a point where I was decent -- I could win one game for every game I lost -- but the more people they let into the beta, the fewer wins I'm able to get for each loss. There's always the option of playing against the computer when the game goes live, right?
In reviews, we had a couple of Force Series SSD reviews this week for those of you who are still looking for reasons to pick one up. Our Canadian friends at Hardware Canucks reviewed the Force Series F100 100GB SSD where it came away with a couple of awards.
There is no doubt in our minds that if you are looking for an SSD that offers extremely flexible performance in nearly every discipline, the buck stops at the Corsair Force 100. Throughout our tests, it exhibited class-leading performance and simply blew the competition out of the water in some benchmarks.
The other F100 review was by Hexus and they gave it their Performance Award.
Corsair's Force SSDs represent premium performance for a premium price. Most consumers will be presented with a more favourable £-to-GB metric by opting for, say, the super-speedy Intel X25-M 160GB, but if your need is characterised by massive bombardment of the storage subsystem, few, if any, drives are better than the Force range.
The Hydro Series H50 High-Performance CPU Cooler has been out for a while now, but it continues to rake in the awards. Case in point -- Fudzilla got their hands on one this week and gave it their Recommended award.
If you were looking for a water cooling solution with no need for assembly (which can get messy if you don’t know what you’re doing), Corsair H50 is made for you. Setting it up is no more difficult than it is to set up an air cooling system – no water pouring, and thus no risk of getting your motherboard all wet. Although the fan is pretty loud at maximum RPM, it ran silent most of the time.
That's all I have for this week. I have to go work on my zerg rush defense. Have a great weekend everyone!
