Roundup: C for Custom

We pull off yet another roundup for this week, despite the absence of one for last week. Our apologies if you were expecting the usual daily posts for last week, we’ve been pretty busy these couple weeks so the posts were rather scattered (especially last week) you can say. Alright, we’ll cut it short – this one seems a bit random but it’s for things that start with C and believe or not there’s quite a handful of goods that were reviewed or tested recently that have their (brand) names start with the letter C.

Why C? Well, we thought of our site name initially (VSPC) but unfortunately there wasn’t much to round up for the other letters (maybe one thing for S, and that’s about it). Anyways, have a great weekend!

Roundup: Memory and Portable Storage

This is harder than we had thought! Totally laughable, but at least we made the effort. As the title implies, we rounded relevant posts on new memory (RAM) products and portable (external, different from last roundup if you were wondering) storage. Something that caught our eyes this week was the new DDR3 kit Corsair announced recently, a series dubbed “Vengeance” and the heat spreaders look very unique and interesting to us. They appear very space consuming height-wise, however the giant heatsinks are in fact much thinner than their coolers found on the well known Dominator series.

Also to note is that Tom’s Hardware has an article regarding memory upgrades and whether it’s time for you to add more RAM, so do us (and them) a favor by checking that out! As usual, we’ll add to this list when more related articles surface.

UPDATE: Added two links to the mix. Happy reading!

Brands Behind the Builds

Earlier we introduced some of the main parts of the new Valor series, but we’ll list all the manufacturers that make the components for this line and also the custom builds that we put together for clients as well (not to mention our own personal systems too!). You may be interested in the links that are provided.

This will be an ongoing list that we will add to if we were to use any other preferred parts for my builds. Please keep in mind that these are quality brands that we would recommend and use for the systems that we assemble, but experiences may vary as we have not had any major problems with them.

Note that we’re not affiliated or endorsed by the above mention brands, and all names or trademarks belong to their respective owners. The items in the list are simply arranged in alphabetical order for reference only, and not placing them in a favored order.
