Just Delivered is a new section of PC Perspective where we share some of the goodies that pass through our labs that may or may not see a review, but are pretty cool none the less.
When building a video editing rig, it is important to have some incredibly powerful specifications like faster processors, lots of cores, speedy storage and of course, lots and lots of memory.
To address this issue and to help us bring more high quality video content readers faster, we just received a set of six 4GB DDR3-1333 modules for a total of 24GB of memory. Our processor layout includes a pair of quad-core Xeon processors with HyperThreading (thus, 16 threads) with each CPU getting 12GB all their own.

As you can no doubt tell, PC Perspective got a HUGE and much needed facelift over the weekend to what we are internally calling "PC Perspective v4.0". I know there are still some kinks to work out and we are actively addressing any feedback from our readers in this comment thread.
But we want to celebrate the launch of the new site in style!! Some of our site sponsors have very generously offered up some prizes for us to give out throughout the coming days...
The second prize is in fact PRIZES since Corsair is going to be handing out a Hydro H60 CPU water cooler to TWO lucky PC Perspective readers!
What do you have to do to win this wonderful piece of hardware?
Couldn't be easier: post a comment in this post thanking Corsair for its sponsorship of PC Perspective and maybe include a thought or two on the new site design (compliments, constructive criticism, hate filled monologues, whatever). You should probably have a registered account or at least be sure you include your email address in the appropriate field so we can contact you!
We will pick the winners tomorrow and move on to the next hardware that finds its way to PC Perspective offices. Good luck and thanks for reading!!

If you didn't pick up one of the RAM kits that comes with an active cooler and are looking to not only monitor the temperature of your DIMMs but also get a light show going inside your case then Corsair has a treat for you. The $54 Corsair AirFlow Pro can do both and you can see it for yourself at Techgage.
"Have a desire to add a bit of 'bling' to your PC, but fear being ridiculed for it? Well, there's no better excuse for bling than with Corsair's AirFlow Pro add-on for the company's AirFlow 2 memory cooler. In addition to offering a hypnotizing light-show, the AirFlow Pro can also keep you informed on your memory's usage and temperatures."
