Desktop CPU Comparison Guide Rev. 17.1.
     Sun, Feb 14 2016 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are so many desktop CPU models that it has become quite impossible to keep up with the different models or even remember their specifications. Therefore, we decided to compile this guide to provide an easy reference for those who are interested in comparing the specifications of the various desktop CPUs in the market, as well as those already obsolescent or obsolete.

Currently covering 1,102 desktop CPUs, this comprehensive comparison will allow you to easily compare up to 19 different specifications for each and every desktop CPU.

Ubuntu 6.06 To Ubuntu 16.04 LTS Performance Benchmarks
     Sun, Feb 14 2016 | 9:01A | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"As I'm in the process of retiring an old AMD Opteron dual-socket system, prior to decommissioning it, I figured it would be fun to go back and re-benchmark all of the Ubuntu LTS releases going all the way back to the legendary 6.06 Dapper Drake release. So here are some fresh benchmarks of this AMD Shanghai system with eight cores and 16GB of RAM when re-benchmarking the releases from Ubuntu 6.06 through the latest Ubuntu 16.04 LTS development state."

Gigabyte Z170X-UD5 Ultra Durable Motherboard
     Sun, Feb 14 2016 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
To expand on our coverage of Intel’s Z170-chipset, we now turn our focus to another Gigabyte motherboard for Intel Skylake CPUs. The Gigabyte Z170X-UD5 Ultra Durable motherboard is up at the plate and has the budget-builder firmly in its sights. Conversely, the company’s pricey Z170X-Gaming G1 motherboard, which we previously reviewed, is loaded with premium features that enthusiast gamers crave. Features such as Bluetooth, WiFi, 4-way CrossFire and SLI support, baked-in liquid cooling accommodations, and the like, are all absent on this more svelte GB product. With much of the fat trimmed, Gigabyte is able to offer a formidable platform for Skylake at a more aggressive price point...

Gainward Phantom GTX 970 GPU Review
     Sat, Feb 13 2016 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gainward Phantom GTX 970 is an interesting card- not an observation based on performance considering at the end of the day it’s a Nvidia GTX 970. But because of a different cooling design which not only works by pulling air through the heatsink and heatpipes array but also allows the user to remove the fans from its GPU shroud, giving an easy access to clean. Do you know any other brand who did this? I know I don’t!

G.SKILL RIPJAWS SV710 Virtual 7.1 Gaming Headset Review
     Sat, Feb 13 2016 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The G.SKILL RIPJAWS SV710 virtual 7.1 headset is the stereo sibling to the real 7.1 surround SR910 which we have also reviewed. With the SV710, we have a more traditional gaming headset and expectedly it’s less expensive than the more novel SR910.

Phanteks Eclipse P400 Chassis Review
     Fri, Feb 12 2016 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Phanteks has introduced its new Eclipse P400 with a price that starts just above £50. In the world of enthusiast cases that is amazingly cheap. The basic Eclipse P400 is available in black or grey at £52, or you can pay a £3 premium for this white version. Add another £8 for the P400S (Silent) that comes with sound deadening panels, a 3-speed fan controller and extra ventilation in the top cover. And you can choose whether or not you have a window on the main panel. There is a clear cosmetic similarity between Eclipse P400 and the more expensive Enthoo Evolv models in the Phanteks range, and Phanteks has also carried over a number of features from its previous models to this budget Eclipse P400.

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