While BIOSTAR is known for motherboards, they too now have SSDs to offer and their newest offerings is the G330 SSD Series which we will be looking at today. The BIOSTAR G330 SSD uses the standard 2.5-inch form factor and packs a SMI 2258 controller and SK Hynix DRAM cache. Let us see how well will the BIOSTAR G330 do in our tests using Intel’s latest HEDT offerings.
When it comes to packing features on a motherboard at an affordable price Asrock is the absolute king! The ASRock X299 Killer SLI/ac LGA 2066 Intel X299 Motherboard has more features packed into it than a US Navy Guided missile! We are talking triple M.2 slots, Intel Optane supported, USB 3.1 Gen 2 bot Type-A and Type-C, 60A power chokes 11 phase power, metal covered reinforced video card slots, Nichicon 12K Black Caps, and Asrock Hyper BCLK Engine III. Yes, it's impossible to beat Asrocks price/feature set and seldom do you see any manufacturers board performing better!
APEX – noun – ‘the highest or culminating point’. APEX is a very fitting name for a motherboard built to do one thing: Break records. The culmination of just shy of three decades of experience manufacturing computer hardware, the ROG Rampage VI APEX takes ASUS’s industry leading experience building some of the most extreme overclocking capable components and rolls them all into one record breaking platform, taunting every other board on the market claiming to have some level over overclocking prowess.

We all know when it comes to RAM faster is better and Corsair has sent us a Corsair Vengeance LPX kit that runs at 3733MHz with timings of 17-19-19-39. When we opened the box low and behold we found a RAM fan with three interchangeable colored rings. We cannot express how happy we are to see Corsair going back to fans on some kits. Not only is it top notch RAM fit for computer connoisseurs, the fan cools the RAM and due to its proximity to the VRM’s helps cool the VRMs and chokes in the CPU area.
