Beginners Guides: Hard Drive Data Recovery
     Tue, Sep 17 2019 | 2:25P | Beginners Guides | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Killed a hard drive without backing up? Deleted your babies first photo and already emptied the recycling bin? Not to worry, you can probably recover your data with the help of this guide from PCSTATS.

"The loss of factory hard drive capacity seems to be an increasingly common occurrence with very large capacity (ie. 1TB) hard drives, but it's not specific to any one hard drive manufacturer. It can happen to brand new drives or existing hard drives full of data. In either case the data portion of the drive isn't generally affected. If a new or existing hard drive in your computer suddenly pops up with a capacity of 32MB, or another value equally small compared to the true drive size, don't freak out, the data should still be there."

G.SKILL Releases Damn Ugly DDR4-4300 Memory Kits
     Mon, Sep 16 2019 | 4:11P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com
These may be the damn ugliest pairs of memory we've ever seen... tech specs are impressive though.

"G.SKILL has released a new high-frequency, high-capacity memory kit to the G.SKILL Trident Z Royal series at DDR4-4300MHz CL19-19-19-39 and DDR4-4000MHz CL16-18-18-38, both in kit capacity of 64GB (8x8GB) and 32GB (4x8GB). Once again, these extraordinary G.SKILL Trident Z Royal memory kits are built with high performance Samsung B-die components.

As an excellent choice for tasks that require both high-capacity and extreme speed memory, the high-performance DDR4-4300MHz CL19-19-19-39 64GB (8x8GB) is shown in the stress test screenshot below, validated on the latest ASUS ROG Rampage VI Extreme Encore motherboard and the Intel™ Core® i9-9820X processor. This is the perfect memory solution for building an all-powerful workstation for various content creation workloads, including 3D rendering and multimedia editing.

Additionally, a low latency 64GB (8x8GB) memory kit at DDR4-4000MHz CL16-18-18-38 is shown in a similar stress test run in the screenshot below, also validated on the ASUS ROG Rampage VI Extreme Encore motherboard and the Intel™ Core® i9-9820X processor. Under this memory specification and test system, the memory read bandwidth on AIDA64 is shown to surpass a speed of 101GB/s in quad-channel memory mode.

These extreme performance RGB memory specifications in 64GB (8x8GB) and 32GB (4x8GB) kit capacities will support the latest Intel XMP 2.0 for easy overclocking setup and will be available via G.SKILL worldwide distribution partners in Q4 2019."

Xigmatek Zest
     Mon, Sep 16 2019 | 3:49P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Xigmatek Zest is one hefty chassis that throws RGBs at us in every possible way: by embedding them into two 200 mm fans, the company logo, and a third fan in the rear, just for good measure. It looks like a sleek and large case that promises to handle any hardware.

Siege of Centauri
     Mon, Sep 16 2019 | 3:46P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Games that first launch through some kind of early access program are a bit of a conundrum for me, when it comes to reviewing them. A game can change quite significantly between that first version and its release state, so opinions and impressions may lose validity. When Siege of Centauri entered Steam Early Access and I was provided a key by Stardock, I thought of an approach that might help me navigate the issue and that was to use it for the Saturday streams I do. That way I not only am somewhat regularly playing the game and experiencing the changes it receives, but also capturing my impressions of the game (when I am not trying to cover some of the news of the week). If nothing else, it seemed like a good idea and now the time has come to review Siege of Centauri in its release state."
