 [LATEST]  Asus Rampage V Extreme Motherboard Review
     Sun, Jan 25 2015 | 4:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the advent of the X99 Chipset from Intel, a bunch of new motherboards are needed to support this. Intel also released a revised Intel i7 CPUs to support this. Not only that but with the chipset and CPU releases, a new CPU socket was released at this same time; the LGA 2011-v3. While most manufacturers have the elite line of high kit, there is probably no better known range than the Rampage series.

 [LATEST]  Aerocool Strike X-Cube Review
     Sun, Jan 25 2015 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Strike X-Cube is the latest case from Aerocool, which in this case features a compact form factor as well as space for mATX as well as miniITX motherboards. Despite its compact dimensions, there is actually enough space for small high-end gaming systems and therefore it might be a case that offers some rather interesting options. Apart from the fact, that there is space for high-end graphics cards you'll also be able to install an all-in-on watercooler.

Posted by: STAFF
: Phanteks is a company that has been around since 2007, but how many have heard of them. As of lately I would said a lot more. When some engineers and a design team paired up they set out to create the best cooling systems. With four cases under their belt, including the Enthoo Luxe, Phanteks have come into battle hard for their share of the computer case sales.

Rampage V Extreme
     Sun, Jan 25 2015 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Rampage V Extreme is ASUS' premier product for their ROG (Republic of Gamers) line of Intel X99-based motherboards. The board offers support for all Intel LGA2011-3 based processors paired with DDR4 memory operating in up to a quad channel configuration. Given the feature-packed nature and premium ROG board-branding, the board's $499.99 MSRP does not come at that much of a surprise.

Patriot Fuel iON Magnetic Wireless Charger
     Sun, Jan 25 2015 | 9:02A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the world of wireless charging of devices there are several competing technologies. The Qi (pronounced Chee) inductive power standard is probably the leading technology when it comes to wireless charging. Qi Wireless charging solutions use a pad and a receiver on the device for inductive charging. In the past I have found devices using Qi to be unable to keep a full battery charge while streaming music through Bluetooth. It can also be difficult at times to find the exact spot to place a device where the charger needs to be and a slight bump and move it out of alignment. Patriot is using another method of wireless charging, they went with Magnetic Charging on their Fuel iON solutions. To help explain this technology and see it in action, Patriot provided us a Fuel iON system for the Samsung Galaxy S5 smartphone.

DXRacer K Series Office Chair @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Jan 24 2015 | 4:02P | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
You might know the saying “for every butt there is a seat” well I get the feeling DXRacer recognizes this with their wide selection of seating options. I have taken a look at a few of their chairs in the past and after visiting their US office I can say for sure that they have a wide selection of seats. They have seven different chair series as well as a ton of colors in each series. When it was time to upgrade my wife’s office chair I decided to go with DXRacer’s latest line, the K Series. The high weight capacity wasn’t needed for her but the large size is great for when she sits in her chair Indian style. On top of that, the high weight capacity means when we have people over for small LANs we won’t have to worry about big buys like me breaking the chair.

Asus X99 Deluxe @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Jan 24 2015 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We can’t very well look at the i7-5960X from Intel and not do a motherboard along with it right? As the first of what expect to me a list of X99 motherboards I will be covering, I wanted to put the Asus to use first simply because they are always reliable and the software is perfect for keeping an eye on things when benchmarking the CPU. After I was done digging into the CPU I circled back around to take a closer look at the Asus X99 Deluxe. The name is simpler than a lot of the board I have tested recently and Asus went a little ham and changed up a lot with the new design. Let’s see what all changed, beyond the new white styling.

Intel i7-5960X Haswell-E @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Jan 24 2015 | 4:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If it feels like we were just right here not to long ago talking about Intel’s latest CPU it is because we were. They launched their Devils Canyon CPUs about two and a half months ago and here we are again. The thing is, today’s launch is designed to be sold alongside of the I7-4790K. This is because officially the 4790K and everything else on the 1150 socket are considered mainstream products. The i7-5960X Haswell-E CPU I will be looking at is an enthusiast product. That means there aren’t limitations like the limited number of PCIe Lanes that the mainstream line runs into all of the time. On top of that we have twice as many cores, twice the ram, DDR4, and a big price tag like all of the other flagship CPUs. The 5960X will certainly not be for the light hearted or budget builds, but I’m excited to see how it performs compared to the model before it and the extremely fast mainstream chips that sell beside it. While I’m at it I’m going to see what king of room you might have left when it comes time to overclock as well.

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.

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.
