Crucial DDR4 2133 MHz 32 GB (4x 8 GB) @ TechPowerUp
     Mon, May 04 2015 | 4:03P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It might seems hard to believe, but it has been several months since consumer DDR4 products first appeared on the market. Yet for me, those products have been around for a fair bit longer than they have been in stores. The company to first have samples widely available for testing was none other than Micron. Crucial is Micron's consumer-focused division …

Gigabyte GTX 960 OC 2 GB
     Mon, May 04 2015 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gigabyte's GTX 960 OC retails at an affordable $199, yet offers the same performance out of the box as the bigger G1 Gaming. Even at its low price, Gigabyte didn't compromise on important things: OC potential, noise, temperatures, power consumption are all comparable to more expensive custom-design variants.

Grand Theft Auto V - Shadow Technologies Showdown
     Mon, May 04 2015 | 4:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The technologies used in games are getting more and more advanced as more powerful hardware becomes available. It won’t be long before it is normal to be fully immersed into a game world with realistic scenery. Thankfully both AMD and NVIDIA have continued to innovate with the way rendering is handled and in particular their most recent innovations were with regards to shadows."

Viper GX II
     Mon, May 04 2015 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We recently reviewed the Raidmax Viper GX II, a value-priced mid tower case sporting a bold looking front panel complete with orange accents. It even has an orange LED fan to appeal to enthusiasts, who are likely to appreciate the roomy interior designed to accommodate for larger water cooling solutions.

Razer Blade Pro Review
     Mon, May 04 2015 | 12:38P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If it's an all-in-one gaming and productivity machine you're after, Razer would encourage you to check out the larger Blade Pro. The 2015 revision features a generous 17.3-inch display which affords the real estate necessary for the highlight of the notebook, Razer's Switchblade UI.

Super Flower Leadex Platinum 2000 W
     Mon, May 04 2015 | 12:38P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Super Flower meant to rock the boat and has without a doubt done so with the Leadex Platinum 2 kW that is only compatible with 230 VAC mains since a normal 115 VAC socket cannot deliver the amperes the unit requires at full load.

TSST TB050PA Portable Charger Review
     Mon, May 04 2015 | 12:38P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The TB050PA is another portable charger from Toshiba Samsung Storage Technology (TSST). It is essentially a lower capacity version of the TB100PA, with a smaller 5,000 mAh capacity. This means it is also cheaper at £24.99 – but is it worth buying ahead of its bigger brother?

Thecus N4310 1Gb 4 Bay Review
     Mon, May 04 2015 | 12:37P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The N4310 is a very well priced 4 bay NAS from Thecus. On the inside there is a dual core SoC, which has been combined with 1 Gigabyte of RAM. Apart from that the N4310 features a gigabit Ethernet interface. With this NAS Thecus is mainly addressing home users but under certain circumstances this could also be an interesting product for small and medium businesses.

Kingston SSDNow KC310 960GB SSD Review
     Mon, May 04 2015 | 12:32P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
You may not have thought it possible (we did but we didn't expect it to happen for quite some time) but solid state drives (SSDs) are actually gaining ground on regular mechanical hard disk drives so most manufacturers now offer 960GB models at rather affordable prices. The good news however is that there are even 1.6/2/3.2/4TB models currently available (there's even been talk for 6/8TB models) and although their prices are set very high since these are not aimed at regular consumers but rather large enterprises (some 4TB models cost around $30k) this means that eventually such capacities will reach all of us. Today in yet another worldwide first we will be taking a very thorough look at the latest SSDNow KC310 SSD which offers 960GB of space and is the only model in that particular line (at least currently).

     Mon, May 04 2015 | 12:29P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Will the new Kingston M.2 SSD shatter some barriers? We benchmarked one to see if it is as fast as its specs suggests.

AMD FX 8320E Processor Review
     Mon, May 04 2015 | 12:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The AMD FX 8320E offers a 3.2GHz base frequency, but can still “Turbo up” to its 4.0GHz counter-part, the FX 8320. In theory, it should be able to perform the same as its non “E” older brother, but with less heat and power. Can this new chip from AMD help them make up some lost ground? Read on to find out!”

TRENDnet TPL-420E2K Gigabit Powerline Networking Kit Review
     Mon, May 04 2015 | 10:16A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
TRENDnet`s 1200AV2 gigabit powerline networking kit shows great promise as an alternative to running miles of wiring in your home."

Gigabyte J1900N-D3V Review
     Mon, May 04 2015 | 9:03A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Gigabyte J1900N-D3V is more than a simple motherboard as it replaces the usual chipset and CPU socket with an Intel Celeron J1900 SoC (System on Chip). Add some RAM, storage and a power source and you have the basis for a compact PC which is pretty good going for a price tag around the £65 mark. Other important points are that J1900N-D3V uses the Mini-ITX form factor and the Celeron chip is passively cooled which means that your new PC will be both small and quiet.

LEPA G1600 MA EU 1600W PSU Review
     Mon, May 04 2015 | 9:02A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are looking at a high end power supply rated to deliver 1600 watts of power. The LEPA G1600 has been a successful high end product for parent company Enermax – so much so that they have not updated it since the original release in 2012. Available for around £250 inc vat, is this a power supply you should be considering for a new ultra high end system build?

ton V310 960GB SSD Review
     Mon, May 04 2015 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are one of those users who demands a massive primary drive in a system then today’s review will be of interest. We look at the new Kingston V310 Solid State drive, which ships in a whopping 960GB capacity. The big question which we answer today – does it compare well against market leaders such as the Samsung 840 EVO 1TB?

Angelbird 512GB wrk SSD Review
     Mon, May 04 2015 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Angelbird. Not the first name many would associate with SSD technology – however this Austrian company have earned a reputation in the high end sector dealing with design professionals, music producers and film makers. One of the interesting aspects with Angelbird is that their drives are designed and manufactured in Austria. Today we are looking at their new 512GB wrk drive – a high end model using the Silicon Motion 2246EN controller.

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.
Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 Intel X79 LGA2011 Motherboard In-Depth Review
Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 Intel X79 LGA2011 Motherboard In-Depth Review
Jul 27 | Motherboards
The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
