Seasonic Prime Titanium Fanless 600W PSU Review
     Fri, Dec 15 2017 | 9:01A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the years Seasonic have been behind some of the highest grade fanless power supplies on the market. The X-Series 460W and Platinum Fanless 520W bring back some great memories for me. It would be fair to say that Seasonic have taken their time in releasing a modern day successor. Enter their new Prime Titanium Fanless supply – offered in a staggering 600 watt capacity. Is this one of the finest power supplies of 2017? I would go as far to say that it is quite possibly one of the finest power supplies ever made.

AOC Agon AG322QCX Review
     Thu, Dec 14 2017 | 4:00P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AOC, we need to talk about your product names. The monitor I have to review today is called the Agon AG322QCX, which no one sane will remember after reading it. And that's a shame, because there's quite a memorable spec sheet to discuss.

Kingston HyperX Cloud Alpha Pro Gaming Headset
     Thu, Dec 14 2017 | 9:03A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
” Well for one, I can say this has become my daily go-to headset for not only gaming and such on my PC, but also for use with my mobile devices, such as my phone and iPad Pro. These little things have a lot of sound for the price, which by the way, is only $99 at the time of this review – a steal. The in-line controls are simple and intuitive, the sound is amazing with rich bass and crystal clear mids and highs, and the comfort – well, the comfort is my favorite part. The use of the aluminum frame was a great move by Kingston and the padding is so soft that I do not get fatigue in my ears or neck like I have with other headsets.

PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
