It seems as if there is a never-ending supply of choices for cooling your CPU and today we get a look at the Deepcool Killer Whale Premium heatsink along with the Hyper 212 Plus CPU cooler from Cooler Master (also reviewed by OCC here). Intel's new Lynnfield processors are just around the corner and we've been treated a long line of previews of P55 chipset motherboards leading up to the release. Today we get another peek at the ASUS P7P55D-Deluxe board (check out the OCC preview here). That leaves us with a pretty good list of other reviews including the Sapphire Radeon HD 4890 2GB Vapor-X (reviewed by OCC here), so settle in and hit the links below for some good reading.

That SSD optimization guide is crap lol... "Disabling Superfetch Click Start, Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services, scroll down to Superfetch and right click Superfetch, Click Properties, drop the Startup Type drop down and click Disabled then click apply. Next time you reboot Superfetch will be disabled and you'll notice that you have more ram available. Superfetch tries to predict what you will use and load it into active ram. To do that it has to pull the information from the hard drive and store it in ram, with the speed of SSD's it's arguably not needed. Leaving it enabled with a SSD might decrease the longevity of the SSD because of the continual HD transfer into memory trying to predict what you are going to use." Reading from an SSD doesn't shorten it's life and RAM is certainly put to better use caching things than sitting idle.
