 [LATEST]  Thermaltake Urban T81 Full Tower
     Sun, Apr 20 2014 | 5:57P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In a market filled with all kinds of PC Cases by a huge number of manufacturers we all know how hard it is for someone to pick the right one for the job especially if price is of a concern. The reason i mentioned price should be quite obvious so if you`re aiming to get one of the most expensive towers in the market then you currently only have a handful of choices to pick from by just a few of the leading manufacturers. On the other hand if you`re on a budget things get tougher since most manufacturers out there aim for the masses and not enthusiasts, serious gamers and professionals so the number of available choices skyrockets. Primarily Thermaltake also seeks to win over the masses but from time to time they too release high quality and feature rich PC Cases aimed at serious consumers and the brand new Urban T81 Full Tower which has been with us for roughly a week now certainly wants to get in their ranks.

SilverStone Raven RVZ01: One Of The Best Mini-ITX
     Sun, Apr 20 2014 | 4:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"When opening the box to the SilverStone Raven RVZ01 there is a disclaimer printed on the packaging in multiple languages about being a "unique product" and recommending users first reading the included manual. This statement isn't just some marketing verbage to build up hype or purchasing confidence in the product, but with being able to accommodate up to a 13-inch PCI Express graphics card and four drive bays within this petite mini-ITX chassis, it truly is a unique product. Today at Phoronix we're looking at SilverStone's Raven RVZ01 mini-ITX chassis, the SFX 450W ST45SF-G power supply, and SST-CP11 SATA cabling for building a great Linux HTPC or your own Steam Machine/Box Linux gaming system."

     Sun, Apr 20 2014 | 4:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“SilverStone makes many different sizes and styles of HTPC cases. The chassis we'll be taking a look at today is their Grandia GD08 which supports a full-size ATX motherboard and power supply along with dual optical drives and as many as eight 3½" and two 2½" hard drives. Provisions for cooling are spacious as well with up to four 120mm intake and two 80mm exhaust fans plus extra venting in the top and rear.”

XFX R7 240
     Sun, Apr 20 2014 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Quote: "Obviously this line of graphics cards is not intended for hardcore gaming, but for its intended uses it does well. As always, for just a little more money, there are more features higher up. This is the bottom rank of the AMD GPU ladder, but it does have roles to fill. Taking that into consideration, none of those are cons. This card operated perfectly and gave me no issues. As a reminder of the prior points I have listed performance as a con, but really it shouldn't be held against it.”

ASUS ROG Poseidon GTX 780 video card
     Sun, Apr 20 2014 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I had mixed expectations going in to this review based on my own experience with water cooling CPUs and video cards. I was impressed with ASUS' design, but skeptical about the small 90mm fans and U-style cooling channel integrated into the DirectCU H2O cooler's base plate. My skepticism quickly gave way to amazement as I began to push the card performance, and turned to awe once I integrated the Poseidon in to my Koolance unit's loop. Note only was the card nearly silent under load with air cooling, but the liquid cooling temperatures rivaled those achieved with after-market full cover blocks. My awe of this revelation comes what I know about full cover blocks and their designs mimicking that of CPU coolers with micro-channels sitting atop the GPU core and optimized coolant flows over the VRM and memory components."

GeForce GTX Titan vs. GTX 780 Ti
     Sun, Apr 20 2014 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the GeForce GTX Titan as well as the GeForce GTX 780 Ti, NVIDIA has two very powerful pixel accelerators in its portfolio. The GTX Titan has been created mainly with gamers in mind, but also professional users will benefit from the vast features set. In case of the GTX 780 Ti, the card has been optimized for gamers only and apart from that it comes with only half the amount of memory but on the other hand higher clock speeds. Meanwhile we're rather curious to find out what difference is going to be inbetween these two cards.

Ultra-Speed DDR3 Revisited: AMD APU Memory Scaling
     Sun, Apr 20 2014 | 10:04A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The R7 graphics in the 7850K responded in perfect linear fashion to each memory speed bump, and the overclocked system provided some pretty good FPS averages as well. I did have to use some very high voltages to reach stability more easily, but a user with patience and a very good CPU cooler could find a power/performance sweet spot with an APU like the 7850K that would not only blow away the experience of a console, but would be a heck of a lot of fun to play around with!"

Gigabyte BRIX Pro And Intel Iris Pro Graphics Review
     Sun, Apr 20 2014 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel's Haswell 4th generation Core series processors with Iris Pro Graphics (formerly known by the code name Crystal Well) offered the promise of more robust integrated graphics performance, since we first laid eyes on the Gigabyte-built device we're showcasing here today, back at CES 2014 in Las Vegas earlier this year. The Gigabyte BRIX Pro is a tiny 4.5-inch square "brick" of technology, if you will, and it's powered by an Intel Core i7-4770R quad-core processor with integrated Intel Iris Pro Graphics 5200. This CPU actually boasts the fastest, most powerful Intel graphics engine we have tested to date, so this should be an interesting ride to say the least. Let's have a look...

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.
