Intel Core i7-4790K Overclocking and Review
     Wed, Jul 23 2014 | 12:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel has been slowly releasing information about its Devil’s Canyon processors for a few months now. If you’ve been on top of the processor scene, you probably know that Devil’s Canyon is the codename for a new revision of Intel’s 4th Gen Core processors, based on the Haswell microarchitecture, that features a high performance polymer thermal interface material (TIM) and updated packaging materials, in addition to an array of additional capacitors to smooth power delivery to the core. The Devil’s Canyon details Intel had strategically released up until a few days ago was all high-level information and lacked specifics about particular model numbers, pricing, and performance. On June 3, however, Intel made all of the juicy details public and a soon thereafter we got our hands on the company’s current flagship Devil’s Canyon based processor, the Core i7-4790K. And today, we can finally give you the full scoop...

Contract Free: Moto G And Republic Wireless Review
     Wed, Jul 23 2014 | 12:02P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we last checked in with Republic Wireless, we found that the service itself was as advertised (inexpensive and very good), but the asterisk was the handset--the Motorola Defy XT, a decidedly midrange smartphone that was the only handset you could use with the service. Worse, the price tag was a mite steep at $249. Subsequently, however, Republic Wireless added two handsets to the lineup that changed the game with the Motorola Moto X and Moto G. Although neither are considered particularly high-end smartphones, we found the Moto X to be a well-made device with substantial performance capabilities. The question we’re asking today is whether or not the Moto G’s performance can equal or exceed its value, particularly within Republic Wireless’ service, because a bargain is only a bargain if you’re getting something good out of it...

OCZ Vector 150 120GB @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Jul 23 2014 | 10:36A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OCZ like most other manufactures cant just focus on just top of the line or budget products. Its important to cover a wide range of products to make sure you have something to meet all of your customers price and performance expectations. A good example of this was the Vector 150. They obviously also have the Vertex 450 that I reviewed previously. OCZ took the design that the Vertex 450 and original Vector both shared, kept the Barefoot 3 controller, and swapped out the NAND from 25nm IMFT MLC NAND to Toshiba`s 19nm MLC NAND. In other words the Vector 150 replaced the original Vector. OCZs Vector drives are their enthusiast focused drives while the Vertex drives are their top of the line mainstream drives. Lets dig in and see what sets them apart."

Posted by: STAFF
Some desktop PC's were designed to push limits. Sometimes they push technological limits with the latest hardware overclocked to the bleeding edge while others tease the creative side such as building your system in an aquarium full of mineral oil, complete with bubbling diver and colorful fake coral.

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.
