 [LATEST]  Fractal Design Define R5 Mid-Tower Case Review
     Fri, Nov 28 2014 | 6:45P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Fractal Design is probably best know for it?s Define series chassis lineup, cases designed for high performance while keeping a low noise level and budget price tag. The current version, the Define R4, was much praised for its customization options, cooling performance, and noise control. However, at the beginning of last year NZXT released their H440 chassis, a case that was called the ?Define R4 Killer,? because of it?s enhanced cooling options, quiet operation, and stunning looks. But now Fractal Design have given their answer to the H440, and it?s a big one ? the Define R5."

 [LATEST]  Seagate 1200 SSD 400GB SAS 12Gb/s Review
     Fri, Nov 28 2014 | 5:18P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since day one we`ve tried bring you reviews of as many SSD models as possible and although we mostly focus on consumer oriented models since that`s where the majority of our readers belong (obviously) we also test enterprise class models from time to time to cater to the needs of our more demanding readers. Now as many of you are well aware although the latest 12GB/s standard has been with us for good well over a year now there aren`t really many compatible storage solutions in the market as we speak so it`s not easy for us to compare similar products. Still when Seagate last year introduced their high-performance 600 and 600 Pro SATA III SSD lines aimed at consumers and professionals they also introduced the 1200 SAS 12Gb/s SSD line aimed towards intensive enterprise workloads and today we will be thoroughly testing the 400GB variant of that line."

Plextor M6e 256GB SSD Review - speedy PCIe on the cheap
     Fri, Nov 28 2014 | 2:43P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Plextor M6e is an impressive little PCIe SSD that is available in half height PCIe as well as an even smaller M.2 2280 form factor. It`s Marvell controller and Toshiba flash perform comparably to the random IO performance of modern SATA units, but with a bit of added headroom provided by the PCIe 2.0 x2 interface. While it can`t compete with the raw sequential throughput of competing PCIe SSD RAID solutions, it does outmaneuver them at lower queue depths, doing so with significantly lower latency per IO. The M6e is also far cheaper than those same competing units, but we feel the price is still a bit high given this particular model`s specs and performance."

GIGABYTE G1 GAMING GTX 970 Review @ Vortez
     Fri, Nov 28 2014 | 1:45P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The G1 gaming (formally Super Overclock) range makes use of a innovative feature called GPU Guantlet which GIGABYTE say guarantees higher overclocking capability in terms of excellent power switching - a feature we will be putting to the test later in this review. So we have a custom PCB, custom cooling along with one of the fastest factory overclocks found on NVIDIA`s GTX 970 (BASE: 1178 MHz / BOOST: 1329 MHz)."

Thermaltake Core V71 Review @ ocaholic
     Fri, Nov 28 2014 | 1:12P | Cases | PermaLink

The V71 is the latest full-tower case from Thermaltake, which belongs to their Core series. First shown at first at Computex 2014, Core V71 is a case able to accommodate big water cooling systems and high-end components. This model is compatible with 360mm and 420mm radiators. The strength of this model is definitely the airflow but V71 features is also tool-less system, features a modular design and much more. "

Along with the architecture enhancements found in the new Hawaii cards, this 285 also sports Sapphire`s tried and true dual-fan heat-pipe based cooler.

Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV Review
     Thu, Nov 27 2014 | 2:43P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This brings me to my next complaint, which is the rear 5.25 bay. Having this bay is still very necessary and the fact that the optical drive still has plenty of life left in it. In fact, trends come and go, but the certain design choices are still relevant in future use. Until all software comes on USB sticks, the optical drive will not become obsolete. I`m glad Phanteks has left the option for a 5.25 bay, even if it`s not in the correct place. This issue I have is very similar to the I/O ports where placement of the chassis comes increasing hard to think of places for it to sit. I feel the design team could have also found a way to place the bay in the front, even if it was just an optional setup. Of course the front panel design would have to be changed, but it would solve two problems that should be considered when buying any chassis."

ASUS Strix Pro Review @ ocaholic
     Thu, Nov 27 2014 | 1:45P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Strix Pro, ASUS has added a new gaming headset to its portfolio. At a first glance you get a flashy design and checking the specifications we find that the manufacturer is using 60 millimeter drivers. Apart from that there is a noise-cancelling feature. Overall this sounds like the Strix Pro is definitely worth having a closer look."

     Thu, Nov 27 2014 | 10:41A | Motherboards | PermaLink

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.
