Official Press Release

Kingston Technology, the world’s leading independent memory manufacturer, today announced the launch of its new DataTraveler ReadyFlash USB 2.0 Flash drive for use in Windows Vista-based systems. The DataTraveler ReadyFlash (DTR) has been developed to support Microsoft Windows ReadyBoost technology. Designed and tested by Kingston Technology to the precise performance specifications outlined by Microsoft, the DataTraveler ReadyFlash is available through Kingston’s global channel of distributors, resellers, retailers and e-tailers.

Jim Selby, Product Marketing Manager EMEA, Kingston Technology comments:

“Kingston is dedicated to providing its customers with memory solutions based on the latest innovative technologies, including Microsoft’s new Windows Vista operating system..."

“We are delighted to be working with Microsoft to help users of Windows Vista maximise the features and performance of the operating system.”

Whilst adding system memory is the best way to increase performance, Windows ReadyBoost allows your system to utilise an additional memory source, alongside DRAM, for processing data and applications. For example, if a notebook has a maximum memory capacity of 1GB, Windows ReadyBoost allows the use of a Flash memory device, such as the DataTraveler ReadyFlash, as a flexible storage medium for Windows ReadyBoost cache.

The DataTraveler ReadyFlash is a USB 2.0 Flash drive enhanced for use with the Windows ReadyBoost. When connected to a Windows Vista-based system’s USB 2.0 port, the Windows Vista AutoPlay dialogue box will offer the option of using the device for Windows ReadyBoost. However, only devices like the Kingston DTR meet the performance requirements and capacity threshold for Windows ReadyBoost.

if everything is 1/2 ID, with 7/16 ID(5/8 OD) tubing u proboly wont need clamps, but its always good to have insurance, low profile zip ties will work aswell.

Thanks eveyone! You've all been awesome guys thanks for helping me out :D

it's taken me two days to come up with list. itll be interesting to how long it takes to set this up !! lol

01-02-2007, 20:19:53

You need more hose clips and youre getting 6m of tubing? also i still see no blocks lol. Other than that, looking good

01-02-2007, 20:25:04

oh yeah block for Quad core? how many more clips?

If I use two rads, will i need two separate pumps? And recommend best fans!!!

01-02-2007, 20:40:54

with that rad 3, 120mm Yate Loon D12SL-12. block either Apogee GT or D-Tek Fuzion, for quad. i thought u were gonna get only one rad.. and even if so one pump should be fine.

01-02-2007, 21:30:19

well i was thinking that it has to cool a quad core and 8800GTX which are going to get incredibly hot (and even possibly add another GPU in the future)
Won't that put a lot of strain on that 1 pump?

So GTX360 at front and PA120.3 external.
prob hook PA to CPU, GTX to GPU... have to see which gets hotter...
Am i goin over the top, or just being safe?

01-02-2007, 21:45:11

u only one 120.3 is needed, id get the thermochill and mount it in the back that would proboly be the best.
