Silicon Power Mobile X31 OTG USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review @ Madshrimps
     Sat, Feb 28 2015 | 10:36A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Silicon Power has recently introduced its lightweight mobile USB 3.0 OTG drive which can be used to transport and transfer data between multiple mobile devices and while its read speeds are pretty good, it falls a bit short on the writes; considering that the Android and Windows tablets which support this function are mostly USB 2.0, the lower write speeds should not be such a bit inconvenience, but when copying data from our PCs to the drive, we can see it lagging a bit."

Seasonic TFX 350W PSU Review
     Sat, Feb 28 2015 | 9:02A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We spend most of our review time analysing ATX power supplies, however we wanted to break with tradition today and take a look at the new Seasonic TFX 350 watt unit. This tiny supply is fully modular and ships with 80 Plus Gold Certification – but can it deliver the high level of quality we expect from a Seasonic design?

Core i7-5960X vs i7-5820K Gaming-Performance
     Sat, Feb 28 2015 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Intel released their new Haswell-E CPUs, we decided to rework our CPU gaming performance articles. Meanwhile we're testing different resolutions and there are FullHD, 1440p as well as UHD on our list. This way you get a more detailed understanding of the differences. Today we compare the Core i7-5960X to the Core i7-5820K at stock clocks as well as overclocked and we're curious see how big the differences are.

ASRock X99 WS-E/10G Review
     Fri, Feb 27 2015 | 12:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The key attraction to this motherboard are the Two 10G BASE-T LAN ports by Intel® X540. A further two gigabit LAN ports by Intel® I210AT with all four LAN ports supporting teaming means this board represents perhaps the fastest LAN solution on the consumer market. We say consumer lightly though, perhaps 'pro-consumer/pro-enthusiast' would be a better description because this board may well have a massive amount of features including the 4 LAN ports, 4way SLI and a 12 phase power design the huge specification has a big price to match.

SanDisk Extreme PRO 128GB USB3.0 Flash Drive Review
     Fri, Feb 27 2015 | 12:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
True to form there is always one manufacturer that sees this weakness in the market and ventures on to resolve the problem with a new class of drive and this is exactly what SanDisk has aimed to do with the Extreme PRO USB3.0 flash drive. Although we don’t know exactly which NAND in particular has been used, going by the specs we could make a fair bet that its of a synchronous variety and guaging by the sixe of the drive there could easily be two NAND packages alongside the drives controller. That said though, all of this is packed into an aluminium and black plastic body and with read and write speeds of 260MB/s and 240MB/s respectively on offer, we are touching on the performance that SATAII SSDs have to give. Sounds good doesn’t it? Boasting up to 60x the performance of USB2.0 flash drives is a big thing to shout about so it’s all down to those all important performance results to make or break SanDisk’s claims that this is truly an Extreme performing drive.

Shuttle XH97V w/ Pentium G3258 @ techPowerUp
     Fri, Feb 27 2015 | 10:36A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We now have the opportunity to test the XH97V from Shuttle. As its model number denotes, this barebone is based on Intel`s H97 chipset, making it compatible with 4th generation Haswell CPUs (its cooling system can support up to 65 W TDP CPUs). Shuttle advertises it as a blend of energy efficiency and performance, and our tests show their claims to be true."

ASUS Sabertooth Z97 Mark S Review
     Fri, Feb 27 2015 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With their TUF series motherboards ASUS, have rather interesting products in their portfolio. Next to their unique design, these boards feature good cooling with the thermal shield and apart from that there is a decent power design as well as an overall high quality. In the case of this motherboard especially the design is simply stunning and we're very curious if ASUS is able to convince us with this product.

GIGABYTE GA-X99M-Gaming 5 Review
     Fri, Feb 27 2015 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, we get to look at the latest LGA2011-3 Socket X99 motherboard from GIGABYTE only this time it is far from the monolithic SOC Force we reviewed upon release. This time the motherboard is much smaller but still encompasses the Gaming-G1 branding so it will be interesting to see if this mATX motherboard still has what it takes to house Intel's finest range of processors or it is simply a diminutive but basic motherboard hoping to draw in consumers on the back of previous success and clever marketing.

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.
