It gives me great pleasure and a relief to mention this every time I put up a review because it is a hard fact. In a country where you get minimum hardware support from the manufacturers to review their own products and others on behalf of the readers, its some companies such as Asus, Gigabyte, Kingston, Western Digital and now Coolermaster who give me hardware support by updating my test rig no strings attached.
I would like to thank

  • Gigabyte India for providing Gigabyte 890GPA UD3H Rev 1.0 motherboard
  • Asus India for providing Asus 990FX Sabertooth motherboard
  • Kingston Taiwan for providing hardware support with memory kits and SSD drive.
  • WD India for providing WD 300GB HLFS Velociraptor Hard Drive.
  • Coolermaster India for providing Coolermaster GX450 RS-450-ACAA-D3 Power Supply

Note: Mostly, I would be emphasizing to look at HyperX, HyperX 3K and Corsair’s Force GT but do note that the HyperX 3K that I am evaluating is a 90gig version.

Kingston HyperX and HyperX 3K go head to head during boot load times with Force GT going head-to-head during Pass 2, 3 and 4.

HyperX 3K slows clear standing against Corsair Force GT and Kingston HyperX in 4K runs.

When it comes to Write, HyperX 3K goes head to head against 120gigs very nicely whereas the read is simply between HyperX and Force GT 120gig drives.
