Written on November 9, 2020 by William George

Here at Puget Systems, we have tried to be careful about sticking to CPU manufacturer memory specifications - to ensure the best reliability, and to avoid overclocking memory controllers (which could, technically, violate CPU warranties). But increasingly complicated memory speed support schemes on many newer processors, combined with a lack of supply of certain speed modules, has forced us to adopt a new approach to what we offer in our workstations.

What is the most reliable hardware in our Puget Systems workstations?

Written on August 21, 2019 by Matt Bach

Here at Puget Systems, our goal is not only to provide the fastest workstations possible, but the most reliable as well. As a part of our constant drive to offer only the highest quality components possible, we track and regularly review the failure rates for each part we carry. Today, we want to give a bit of a peak at how reliable different types of hardware are in our workstations.

Most Reliable PC Hardware of 2018

Written on January 2, 2019 by Matt Bach

At Puget Systems, one of the most important things we track in our workstations is the failure rates of individual components. Overall, 2018 was a very good year for hardware reliability with about half as many parts failing this year versus 2015, 2016, or 2017. But what models were the best of the best?

Most Reliable PC Hardware of 2016

Written on December 30, 2016 by Matt Bach

At Puget Systems, we track a lot of data but one of the most important things we track is the failure rates of individual components. Reliability is of our primary values, so this data is invaluable for tracking both individual component, product line, and overall brand failure rates. With 2016 coming to a close, we thought we make public a bit of this data to let you know what hardware we found to be the most reliable in 2016.

Video Card Failure Rates by Generation

Written on May 2, 2014 by Matt Bach

Recently, a question came up in one of our department meetings: are video cards getting more or less reliable? There are times when it feels like video cards are failing left and right and we start to pine for the "good old days". Then, we remember how hot Fermi cards used to run. To get a more accurate answer this question, we decided to examine our GPU failure logs and break down the numbers by generation.
