Thecus N2810 NAS review
     Tue, May 31 2016 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the N2810, this is a Linux based NAS unit that is price competitive while it offers great performance. Armed with an dual-core Intel Celeron processor and 2GB of memory with the ability to upgrade. The N2810 can take 2 HDDs, has low power consumption, but most of all can be used for 1080p / 4k HTPC accelerated media playback as it has HDMI out and sports a custom version of XBMC (Kodi).

SeeMeCNC visit and 3d printing rundown
     Mon, May 30 2016 | 9:02A | Printers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It’s a combination of the kid in me and the maker in me but getting a 3D Printer has been on my short list of things I want to get for years now. I’ve spent a lot of time with things like my plotter designing and making my own stickers as needed. Frankly though 3d printer always felt a little unobtainable both because of the cost and because it seemed like you might need an engineering degree to build and maintain one. Well a few months ago my interest was renewed and I decided that I was going to get one and from then on I spent day and night learning as much as I can, reading anything and everything. I had a few printers in mind but couldn’t decide. One of the companies I was keeping a close eye on was SeeMeCNC, they had been involved with printers for custom PC builds with Darth Beavis, on the Vanilla Ice Project, and even involved with PDXLAN. The problem was for my first printer at least; I wasn’t really looking for a build it yourself kit. I feel capable of doing that, but I just really wanted to dive into it quickly rather than a long build time prior. The other problem was even in the kit form their printers were a bit higher than I was budgeting. Well when looking at them I found out that they are actually within a drive away and I reached out about visiting. It just so happened that they were also introducing their long awaited Eris, a smaller, cheaper, and more portable model that comes factory build. I went and visited their factory and picked up the first Eris and have been getting a feel for it all. Today I’m going to give a quick run through on what 3d printing is all about, go over my visit with SeeMeCNC, then tomorrow I will dive into the Eris and my overall experience with it.

Overclockers UK 8Pack Asteroid System Review
     Mon, May 30 2016 | 9:00A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The pre-built PC market is becoming increasingly populated with major OEMs and System Integrators, many of which are now targeting the high-end PC gaming and enthusiast audience. Yet very few of those brands offer something truly exciting or unique in this space – Overclocker UK’s Ian ‘8Pack’ Parry is one of the exceptions to that rule.

Thermaltake Core X31 Case Review
     Sun, May 29 2016 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Thermaltake introduced their Core X Series back in January at CES. The case that really eclipsed the others out of the series was the Core X71 full tower, but let's face it, most people do not have the need to such a large case. For most of us we want a mid tower that has ample space inside, great cooling support, and looks pretty good. Well look no further as today we have Thermaltake’s Core X31. This mid tower has room inside for long graphics cards and power supplies, two 360 mm radiators, tall CPU coolers and much more. The motto of the Core X Series is “Your Build. Our Core” and Thermaltake really stands behind this as the internal components of the case can be removed if you don’t plan on using them. Let's jump in and see if the Core X31 is the perfect mid tower for you!"
