Corsair today announced what it says is a "major advance in high capacity SSDs," which is marketing speak for the retail availability of its 480GB Force Series GT SSD and 180GB and 480GB Force Series 3 SSDs. The 180GB is meant to replace smaller boot drives that became popular when SSD pricing was stuck in the stratosphere, with the 480GB an option for high performance notebooks users who require "massive SSD storage capacity in a single drive."
Whether or not you think it's practical to outfit a system with 32GB of memory, Corsair is at least making the prospect possible by adding 8GB DDR3 modules to its Vengeance and Value Select memory lines. Slap four of these sticks into your dual-channel setup and you'll be sitting pretty with more RAM than most people know what to do with.
We’ve already reviewed Corsair’s 600T once. We loved the case, but bemoaned the lack of side air intakes. The Special Edition White 600T is virtually the same as the regular edition, with a new paint job and one major tweak: the addition of a side-panel cutout that can be fitted with either an acrylic window or a mesh screen with fan mounts. At 20 inches tall by 10.4 inches wide by 22.7 inches deep, the 600T is not a small case, but once the steel side panels are removed you’re greeted with a vastness that seems bigger inside than out.
