Dammmn Daniel! We are back at it again.

It's been a few years and it's time to pick this back up of the floor. I am a bit rusty but also learned a thing or two along the way. I will see what changes can be made here. I love baremetal projects. Stay tuned.

[Review] Cooler Master TPC 812

Cooler Master TPC 812

The Cooler Master TPC-812 is the latest in Cooler Master's heatpipe vertical vapor chamber designs. Not to confuse it all. These vapor chambers are not inside the heatpipes as you might have seen or heard before.

Free Internet, Google Fiber and why this is for everyone.

Money

Free is free. Free is good. Is it still that way? Reading many blogs and speaking to some more people it sometimes seems as either free is not free enough or free is overrated.

Review: Noctua Nh-L12

Noctua NH-L12

Noctua is back in the house. It's always good to have them here. We appreciate the work and effort that is put into these cooler designs and their build quality. Although some of the designs or color schemes might not speak to everyone, the performance is far from lackluster.

"Money Can't Buy Everything"

Money

Something struck me in these words. I have been working for a few enterprises, fortune 500's and cooperation's and explored the self employed realm as well as the small business side of things. I certainly noticed that the larger an organization gets the less this idea is valued.

Toshiba Announces THNSNF Series SSDs: 19nm NAND Is Here

Toshiba Announces THNSNF Series

THNSNF will finally bring SATA 6Gb/s support to Toshiba SSDs, and the series is based on Toshiba's own controller. Toshiba has definitely taken their time developing this controller considering we saw the first SATA 6Gb/s SSDs (Crucial's RealSSD C300) in early-2010—over two years ago—and the first such SSDs hit retail (albeit with some growing pains) in February 2010. The actual model number of the controller is still unknown, but it's possible that it's the same controller (TC58NC5HJGSB-01) that surfaced in IO-Data's SSDs a couple of months ago. On the other hand, Toshiba is known for quality and reliability with their SSDs, so it's not that surprising that it took this long for them to test and validate a SATA 6Gb/s contoller—it can easily take over a year of validation to make sure everything works properly.

On top of the brand new controller, Toshiba is also using their own state of the art 19nm Toggle-Mode 2.0 MLC NAND. Some of Toshiba's 24nm NAND used Toggle-Mode 2.0 interface as well so it's not brand new, but at 400MB/s it's faster than what ONFi can provide at this point. Toshiba is in fact the first SSD company to announce SSDs based on sub-20nm NAND, though we should start seeing 64Gb 20nm IMFT NAND soon unless Intel and Micron have issues with the new process node. Here's the overview of the new Toshiba SSDs.

Review: NZXT Havik 140

NZXT Havik 140

We are adding a new name to list of manufacturers. NZXT has invited us to have look at their latest air cooler release, the NZXT Havik 140. Here we have another great company from sunny California. Seems like the sun is good for people.
