One of the most critical components of IBM Servers is the Storage Subsystem which includes the RAID controller and the Hard Disk Drives (HDD). Typical HDD capacities found in today’s IBM Server Systems range from 2.25GB to 9.1GB (1Giga Byte = 1 Billion bytes). RAID 5 and RAID 1 architecture technology provides the ability to… Read more Basic Knowledge On Hard Disk Drives (HDD)
Thermal paste helps strengthen the encryption of your CPU, have you ever read or heard this claim before? As for me and in full honestly I have not. In fact this is not true at all as there is no relationship between thermal pastes and encryption in any way, but I’m making a post on… Read more How Can A Good Thermal Paste Increase Security?
In this review PCSTATS will be testing the 256GB Crucial M4 SSD, a 6Gb/s SATA III drive rated by the manufacturer for read speeds of up to 500MB/s and write speeds of 260MB/s (sequential). Crucial’s M4 SSD uses 25nm MLC NAND Flash and the same Marvell controller that Intel relies on in several of its… Read more Crucial M4 SSD Review
Earlier this year Intel introduced its second SandForce based SSD: the Intel SSD 330. While Intel had previously reserved the 5xx line for 3rd party controllers, the 330 marks the first time Intel has used something other than its own branded controller in a mainstream or 3-series drive. I don’t doubt that I’ll eventually get… Read more Intel SSD 330 Review
NAND Flash memory stores data in an array of memory cells made from floating-gate transistors. Insulated by an oxide layer are two gates, the Control Gate (CG, top) and the Floating Gate (FG, bottom). Electrons flow freely between the CG and the Channel (see diagram to the right) when a voltage is applied to either… Read more NAND Flash Memory – What To Know
The SanDisk Extreme II solid-state drive (SSD) has a lot more going for it than just being 2.5mm thinner than the previous SanDisk Extreme. In my testing, the new and trim SSD offered fast performance, comparable to that of even the fastest consumer-grade SSDs, while costing well less than $1 per gigabyte. The drive can… Read more SanDisk Extreme II Review
A thermal paste is one of the most significant and essential elements in any CPU cooling structure. Without it your CPU will become very hot to the extent that its transistors will burn and get out of action, that’s because the CPU cannot transmit the generated heat to the mounted heat sink over it, and… Read more The Usage Of Thermal Paste In Computer Systems
