By

The Western Digital Raptor WD1500 spins at 10,000 RPM.

We ran our tuning tests for the Core 2 Extreme on the Asus P5B Deluxe with a 965 chipset.

Corsair memory makes it happen : clock rates of 550 MHz.

You can buy the Corsair CMX1024-6400C3 in retail outlets today.

We used a Gigabyte GV-RX19X512VB-HRH (ATI X1900XTX) graphics cards for our testing.
