Kingston HyperX FURY 240 GiB SSD Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Fri, Aug 29 2014 | 8:53A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are many components in a PC that can be upgraded to make it faster, but none are as noticeable in the real world as upgrading a hard drive to a solid state drive. They have come down significantly in price over the last few years, so it`s now cheaper than ever to upgrade your PC. While some months ago 120 GiB units offered the best cost/benefit ratio, now the times of the 240 GiB units are coming. Today, we will test a new 240 GiB drive from Kingston, the HyperX FURY, which is focused on the low-cost market."

Twelve desktop sets reviewed: buy cheaply, pay dearly
     Thu, Aug 28 2014 | 4:03P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
You can't avoid having to purchase a new keyboard or a new mouse every once in a while. Desktop sets which combine both are relatively inexpensive; that is what people seem to think, at least. We tested twelve sets ranging from approximately 20 to 90 euros, but were ultimately left unimpressed.

TteSports Poseidon Z Mechanical Kailh Blue Switch Keyboard Review
     Thu, Aug 28 2014 | 4:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the office today I have something very special, the TteSports Poseidon Z Mechanical Keyboard. While having a mechanical keyboard in for review often feels like a special occasion anyway, since they’re often regarded as premium quality device, there is something uniquely interesting about this keyboard, its switches. The Posidon Z features Kailh switches, and in a market dominated by switches produced by Cherry there has long been room for a strong competitor to enter the market, or at least a cheaper competitor. The question is, can the Kailh Blue switches keep up with the excellent performance of the Cherry MX Blue? Featuring a different switch is one thing, many keyboards implement different methods of registering a keystroke, the important thing about the Kailh switches is that they’re effectively a copy of the Cherry style mechanical switch, but without the wallet hurting price tag often associated with high-end mechanical keyboards. The Poseidon Z will set you back a very affordable £53 / $89, which is around 40% cheaper than most Cherry switch options that are on the market with a similar specification.

Tt eSPORTS Poseidon Z Blue Switch Mechanical Gaming
     Thu, Aug 28 2014 | 4:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cherry MX is no longer the only recognized manufacturer of mechanical switches in the market (although certainly the most popular) and although some people feel that others can't reach the same level of quality due to lack of experience/expertise i believe that manufacturing a good mechanical switch is not nuclear science and the fact that even gaming peripheral manufacturers like Razer have decided to do so on their own is proof enough. That being said there's a good amount of research that needs to go into the design and manufacture of a mechanical switch but since Cherry MX is the standard currently others need only to "clone" their solutions. Roughly a month ago we had our first encounter with the brand new Kailh Brown mechanical switches which are basically clones of the very well-known Cherry MX Browns and the results were very good. Well to have a better opinion for Kailh mechanical switches today we decided to take a look at the Poseidon Z mechanical gaming keyboard featuring their Blue ones.

ASRock Fatal1ty FM2A88X+ Killer Socket FM2+ Motherboard Review
     Thu, Aug 28 2014 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, here at OCinside.de we test the ASRock Fatal1ty FM2A88X+ Killer - a brand new Socket FM2+ motherboard with special gaming features, or rather killer features. The Socket FM2+ motherboard is backward compatible with Socket FM2, so we have tested it with an AMD Richland and AMD Trinity in addition to the latest AMD Kaveri processor. Not only the compatibility has been tested, but also the performance and the overclocking options with an AMD A10-7850K, A10-6800K and A10-5800K APU on the ASRock Fatal1ty FM2A88X+ Killer motherboard is compared.

Crucial M550 512GB CT512M550SSD1 SATA3 SSD Review
     Thu, Aug 28 2014 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Crucial has developed the new M550 SSD, which not only has a significantly better performance, but also provides more usable capacity. Fortunately, we tested all Crucial SSD generations since the first Crucial RealSSD C300 on OCinside.de and see again significant improvements at the current Crucial M550 compared to its predecessors. The Crucial M550 is available as 2.5-inch SATA, mSATA and M.2 SSD with a capacity range between 64 GB and 1 TB. The detailed review will show how fast the energy saving Crucial M550 512 GB CT512M550SSD1 SSD is in comparison to the previously tested Solid State Drives and if it provides good values even in older PCs without AHCI.

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.
