ASUS Maximus VII Formula Top End ROG Gaming For Z97 @ Bjorn3D
     Tue, Oct 21 2014 | 9:34A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Seems like just yesterday we were looking at the Maximus VI Formula from ASUS based on the Z87 and today we have the Z97 variant, the Maximus VII Formula and it actually looks alot like the previous Z87 variant which to us is not a bad thing as they made a very good and capable board. The Maximus VII Formula comes to market with a street price of $369.99 directly from Newegg at the time of writing. This price point puts it definitely in the upper bracket in regards to gaming board pricing but still not outside the realm of possibility. The thing about these higher price points is they require some special features to make them worth the cash and knowing previous ROG boards we are sure this one is no different and will come dressed to impress.

MSI GeForce GTX 970 Gaming OC review
     Tue, Oct 21 2014 | 9:14A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,We review the new MSI GeForce GTX 970 Gaming OC edition. This affordable model comes with the new TwinFrozr V cooler. The GM204-200 chip is smacked onto a custom PCB surrounded with Military class components and obviously, with OC in the name... it comes a little tweaked as well. This card however has one 6 and one 8-pin power feed and again, does come with that new revision model 5 TwinFrozr cooler. The card has 4 GB graphics memory, is energy efficient and factory overclocked for you. You will be surprised by how this card looks, how silent it is, how well it performs and how much it can be overclocked."

Intel Core M Broadwell Speeds, Feeds And Performance
     Tue, Oct 21 2014 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel's next-generation Broadwell Y (now known as the Core M processor) is set to ship on schedule for the end of the year. The company, occasionally flagged with criticism of its repeated delays and with its IDF show ramping up next week, is sharing more detail on the upcoming hardware, features and performance characteristics of its new 14nm mobile platform. We've previously offered up a 14nm deep-dive on how Broadwell Y came to be from a design, process and manufacturing standpoint. Today, we'll look more closely at how the new Core M processor's feature list, how it will be productized and some high level performance expectations as well...

Kingwin EZ-CLONE USB 3.0 to SATA & IDE One Click Clone Adapter Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Tue, Oct 21 2014 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The time for new computer upgrades are here and one of the most popular ways of speeding up an older existing system is to get a faster and higher capacity solid state drive. After all, you always need more space and the SSD hard drives are getting faster and easier to afford and these silent wonders are getting larger and larger capacity as mechanicals are slowly fading away. But, what about all the data you already have and you have all your settings just right and then there are your pictures. Maybe you need your new setup to stay the way the old one was before. Maybe you just want bigger but not a complete overhaul. You could do a data transfer wizard but that takes time and then you need to do a clean install before you can re-install your settings and sometimes things dont go so well that way. You could save all that heartache and time data with the Kingwin EZ-CLONE USB 3.0 to SATA & IDE One Click Clone Adapter. Its a a shiny little black box that is a very handy duplicator and drive hub by cloning that drive of yours to the new one all in one step data and all."

Micron M600 SSD Review - Digging into Dynamic Write Acceleration
     Tue, Oct 21 2014 | 6:14A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Micron M600 SSDs were certainly challenging to properly evaluate. The dynamic flipping from SLC to MLC flash meant we had to come up with an entirely new routine based on evaluating performance consistency as test samples are filled to capacity. Once we worked out a realistic routine and applied it to a round of competing samples, we were a bit disappointed by the inconsistent results seen from Micron`s first stab at this challenging and apparently tough to execute feature. The new testing method also revealed some additional shortcomings of the Marvell controller not seen in competing SSDs. All of that said, the M600 should bring a competitive cost/GB to OEMs who choose to include it in their system builds."

NVIDIA GTX 980 3-Way and 4-Way SLI Performance
     Mon, Oct 20 2014 | 4:22P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Multi-GPU gaming has always, and will likely always, present more problems to gamers than any single GPU solution will. With a single, fast GPU you will nearly always get 100% of your paid-for performance while going down the road of SLI or CrossFire always means there will be some sacrifice of individual GPU performance for the scalability you get. Our testing today with a set of four GeForce GTX 980 4GB reference cards proves that this is still indeed the case, despite claims from all parties involved that it would be better with this generation. Maybe it still can be, but drivers need to be optimized clearly."

ASUS GeForce GTX 970 STRIX OC Edition Review @ ocaholic
     Mon, Oct 20 2014 | 9:34A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Next to the GTX 980 STRIX, ASUS is also launching the GTX 970 STRIX graphics card today. As usual the GTX 970 is the smaller brother of the GTX 980 and it comes with a more attractive price but therefore offers a little less performance. There is also a custom design PCB as well as - apparently - ASUS STRIX cooler and overall this should be a rather punchy card."

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.
