ASUS X99-E-10G WS motherboard brings 10 Gigabit Ethernet to X99
     Wed, Aug 31 2016 | 11:27A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

In an industry full of ostentatious claims, every product stack needs a reserved, understated statesman. Not the type that stays quiet in board meetings out of fear, nor the type that needs to raise their voice to make a point. Nope, we’re talking about the type that sits back and observes the young upstarts as they clamber over each other to get into the limelight and then makes one careful, reassuring statement in a deep, soothing voice that stops everyone in their tracks. In the ASUS motherboard family, that role is gracefully played by the new X99-E-10G WS.

PowerColor Red Devil RX 480 8GB
     Wed, Aug 31 2016 | 11:22A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”Past history has shown that PowerColor's Devil series cards are pretty capable performers in their segment. For this generation, we see that the apple has not fallen far from the tree when you look at what kind of performance you get in the target resolutions for the RX 480. At 1920 x 1080, you get a card in the PowerColor Red Devil RX 480 8GB that can play pretty much any game out with excellent FPS results. At 2560 x 1440, the Red Devil RX 480 8GB is still going to deliver an engaging gaming experience, should you choose to play at that resolution. 4K gaming performance is going to be a stretch any way you go about it without stretching the budget to include a second card. If you are looking at gaming at a 4K resolution, you most likely are not shopping the sub $300 GPU market anyhow. Gaming performance compares most with the previous generation R9 390 and flirts with the performance delivered by the GTX 1060, mostly in the DX12-based games.Past history has shown that PowerColor's Devil series cards are pretty capable performers in their segment.

MSI GeForce GTX 1060 3GB Review

Posted by: STAFF
Initially just a rumor, the 3GB version of the GTX 1060 is now something you can buy starting at $200 -- but should you? It comes down to the games you play, the resolution you run them at and how picky you are about quality settings.

Cooler Master has a long history of manufacturing high quality enthusiast level cases and CPU coolers. Last year, they introduced their MasterCase 5 line, which was a mid-tower designed to allow a wide range of customization and upgrades. After the success and recognition of the MasterCase 5 line, they introduced their MasterBox line, which was a lower cost alternative to the MasterCase, but still retained a high degree of customization options. Now, Cooler Master is further expanding the MasterCase line with the little brother to the MasterCase 5 line, the MasterCase Pro 3. The Cooler Master MasterCase Pro 3, will be available on September 6th from Amazon for $99.99 shipped.

Custom GeForce GTX 1080 Round Up With ASUS
     Wed, Aug 31 2016 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA hit a lot of high notes with the Pascal-based GeForce GTX 1080. When the Founder’s Edition launched earlier this summer, it received accolades for its excellent performance, power efficiency, and host of new features. If you’d like a refresher on what’s new in NVIDIA’s Pascal architecture and see what makes the GeForce GTX 1080 Founder’s Edition tick, we’d strongly suggest checking our launch coverage. We’ve got the full scoop laid out for you there. As HOT as the GeForce GTX 1080 Founder’s Edition is, we were eager to see what NVIDIA’s board partners would do with the GTX 1080. The GP104 GPU that is the foundation of the GTX 1080 isn’t particularly power hungry, it doesn’t generate a ton of heat, and it proved to be an excellent overclocker. Those three things give NVIDIA’s partners a lot to work with in terms of custom cooling, power budgets, and factory overclocks. To that end, we reached out to a handful of NVIDIA’s key board partners so that we could evaluate a few custom GeForce GTX 1080 cards, round-up style. A few partners weren’t up for the challenge, but EVGA, Gigabyte, and ASUS came through...

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