Aerocool Dead Silence DS200 Mid-Tower Chassis Review
     Fri, Aug 01 2014 | 12:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Aerocool are back once again with a new entry in their Dead Silence chassis series. We absolutely loved their Dead Silence Cube chassis which we reviewed a few months ago, as it is easily one of the best compact gaming chassis on the market today. Now they’re back with a similar aesthetic and a much bigger form factor with the DS200, a premium grade mid-tower with support for ATX motherboards. Aerocool are certainly one of the more up and coming names in the chassis business, sure they’ve been at it for years and already have some stunning products such as their PGS series, with the BX500 and Xpredator being two of my favourite cases, but it’s in these last two years that they’ve really been putting up a fight against the likes of Corsair, NZXT, Thermaltake, Coolermaster and many more who have long dominated the gaming chassis market.

Gamdias Hermes Cherry MX Blue Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review
     Fri, Aug 01 2014 | 12:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gamdias are one of the newest players in the gaming peripheral market, and while they may have only been at this a couple of years, they’ve made some big impression with the laser like focus for creating awesome products. It was only recently we reviewed our first Gamdias product, the Hephaestus headset, and it’s easily one of the coolest headsets we’ve ever tested. Today I’m hoping that Gamdias can create something as unique and innovative as the Hephaestus headset with their new keyboard, although initial impressions tells me they certainly can.

ADATA SP610 512GB Versus Corsair Force LX 512GB
     Fri, Aug 01 2014 | 12:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Solid-State Drive (SSD) have been steadily growing in capacity and thanks to improvements to the manufacturing processes the price of NAND and SSD controllers has been falling at an impressive rate. This means that fairly large SSDs are now fairly affordable and something the for the average consumer can justify purchasing. 240GB and 256GB SSDs are the most popular capacity sold today, but there has been a number of budget friendly 480GB and 512GB drives that have come to market in recent weeks. Today we’ll be looking at two 512GB SSDs that are focused on the value segment of the market; the ADATA Premier SP610 and the Corsair Force LX.

BlackBerry Q10 Review – Lucky Number 10
     Fri, Aug 01 2014 | 12:00P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If any one number could be considered lucky for BlackBerry, it would be the number 10. Their release of the BB Z10 full screen smart phone was followed a short time later by the Q10 with its physical keyboard; both of which contain the totally redesigned BB 10 OS. All of this occurred during the year that Blackberry was hit the hardest, both financially and in the press. The number 10 not only served as a safety net for BlackBerry, but also, it just may be the good luck charm needed as stock numbers are so close to a 52 week high at the time of this report.

Silverstone Nightjar 520 W @ techPowerUp

Posted by: STAFF
Silverstone has been offering fanless PSUs for quite some time; however, they hadnt released a relevant product for some years now, which changed recently as their Nightjar fanless series now includes the NJ520 with Platinum efficiency, a fully modular cabling design, and a promise of total silence."

Intel Core i7 4790K Haswell gets a refresh @Bjorn3D
     Fri, Aug 01 2014 | 8:29A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The New Devils Canyon CPU is a very nice upgrade to the Intel stable. Bringing a default speed of 4.0GHz to the table and up to 4.4GHz means the need to overclock for a gamer is even further negated than we have seen before. The processor feels a lot more stable and gamer friendly with the much lower temps thanks to the addition of the new TIM in place which once again we feel was a major good move by Intel to correct a very big issue. This allows even air-cooled gamers to now have an even more silent system while still offering blazingly fast performance. The other side of the coin on this point is that on extreme cooled efforts these chips seem to be less responsive and a bit less capable but we will wait for some BIOS revisions and more OC related boards to fully pass judgement on this specific issue.

Rosewill Capstone Modular 1000 W @ techPowerUp
     Fri, Aug 01 2014 | 6:07A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Rosewill built up a solid reputation over the last few years, especially for PSUs, where things are tough because of the strong competition. In this review, we will evaluate the Capstone series` flagship model. It features 1 kW capacity, a semi-modular design, and a nice price tag. Our expectations are high because the unit is based on a Super Flower platform."

NVIDIA Tegra 4-based tablets
     Thu, Jul 31 2014 | 12:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The first unit is a 7" device designed by NVIDIA and manufactured by EVGA, hence the EVGA Tegra NOTE 7 name. Marketed mostly to gamers, this tablet comes with an impressive feature set for the $199 MSRP asking price. The second tablet is the latest member of the Transformer Pad lineup from ASUS. It's a high end tablet that comes with a hefty $449.99 price tag, but sports one of the most beautiful displays I've ever seen in a portable device."

Patriot STELLAR 64GB
     Thu, Jul 31 2014 | 12:01P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I can't say that I will really use the drive just for my phone or tablet in such a manner. I'll likely use the drive in exFAT format and use it as a typical flash drive on the go. However, the microUSB is the key bonus to this drive all around. I couldn't really find too many other drives out there with similar capabilities that weren't either massive in size, or well, really just massive in size. Small and on the go are two words meant to be together.”

Silverstone Raven RV 05 Review
     Thu, Jul 31 2014 | 12:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Raveon RV05 is the latest model from from SilverStone that got added to their well known case series. The product features a unique design and since it's a SilverStone case, it should also come with impeccable build quality. A very interesting feature is, that the motherboard has been rotated by 90° in order to make use of the chimney effect. For a price of 100 Euro, this sound like a really interesting product, doesn't it?

Silicon Power Slim S55 240GB SSD Review
     Thu, Jul 31 2014 | 10:36A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Who would had thought even just 5 years ago that a few years later one could just walk inside an electronics store and pick an SSD (Solid State Drive) out of a whole section filled with models from virtually every single storage media manufacturer out there? Well i always thought it would be just a matter of time but i have to admit that i never really expected to see SSD models get released even by companies which appeared out of nowhere and without any previous products in the market. That being said the competition with the leading manufacturers that hold the largest percentage of the SSD market as we speak is always a good thing since it helps keep product quality at good levels while it also helps control prices so i can`t say i mind. Today on our test bench we have one of the most recent SSD models to hit the market the Slim S55 240GB by our close friends over at Silicon Power."

Kingston SSDNow mS200 240GB mSATA SSD Review @ Bigbruin.com
     Thu, Jul 31 2014 | 9:12A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In real world use, the mS200 240GB mSATA SSD proved to be exactly what I expected. It made a notebook computer that didn`t seem all that old seem so much faster and more enjoyable. The drive was capable of hitting its target read and write speeds (540MB/s and 530MB/s respectively) during the execution of benchmarks, but results will not look as impressive if the test selected uses incompressible data."

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
