     Wed, Sep 17 2014 | 4:16P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Intel moved the launch of the X99 platform forward it caught some companies off guard, but one company that was more than ready for the launch was G.Skill. G.Skill had no less than 23 different DDR4 memory kits ready to sell on launch day! That is an impressive number of kits and if you are looking for a 16GB, 32GB or 64GB kit of four DDR4 modules the folks over at G.Skill will be more than happy to sell you a Ripjaws 4 DDR4 memory kit that is clocked at 2133MHz, 2400MHz, 2666MHz, 2800MHz, 3000MHz, 3200MHz, 3300MHz or even the World?s fastest memory kit at 3333MHz. G.Skill has by far the most impressive lineup of DDR4 memory modules by any company and they are priced very aggressively. Today we?ll be taking a look at the G.Skill Ripjaws 4 16GB (4x4GB) DDR4 kit of memory that is clocked at 3000MHz with CL15 timings and using 1.35 Volts."

Where is the Startup Folder in Windows 8.1?
     Wed, Sep 17 2014 | 4:03P | Beginners Guides | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ok, we all know that a lot of things have changed in Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 from the “Good Ol’e days”. While poking around pointlessly this morning, I started to wonder where the Startup folder had gone… and is it still used at all. If you are looking for the “new” Startup, go to ...

ASUSTOR AS-204TE Review
     Wed, Sep 17 2014 | 4:02P | Hardware | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Unless you have been living under a small stone in a field behind Bilbo Baggins' home, you may have heard the term NAS (Network Attached Storage). NAS are becoming more prevalent in the home, the small office, and the Enterprise. These flexible, inexpensive, devices can nearly do it all, which is what makes them so attractive. Well, it seems like everyone and their cousin is producing a NAS of some sort, but only a few have really got their act together. Among that small few, those that have more in R&D than they do in sales, is a company by the name of ASUSTOR. Today, ASUSTOR is no longer just a startup company. Instead, they have been producing some of the best, low-cost, NAS that money can buy. We had the chance to review their AS-302T, as well as the AS-608T and absolutely loved it. Let's see if their AS-204T can live up to our lofty expectations.

CM Storm Resonar Gaming Earphones Review
     Wed, Sep 17 2014 | 4:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It was just 6 months ago that we reviewed an in-ear CM Storm gaming headset and while I loved the build quality, style and microphone performance, I couldn’t help but notice that bass was seriously lacking on the drivers. Now this isn’t really a bad thing, the headset was targeted right at the LAN gaming and eSports loving crowd and it’s no secret that clear treble and minimal bass can provide tangible benefits in competitive FPS gaming, since it allows you to better hear the footsteps of your opponents. Unfortunately for CM Storm I expect a little more from my audio devices and since I like to listen to music as much as I love gaming, good all round performance is a must.

With an absolute plethora of cooling products and chassis to choose from, Cooler Master boasts one of the largest product lines in the industry.

Sapphire R7 260X OC 1GB Graphics Card Review
     Wed, Sep 17 2014 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gaming on a strict budget has become easier in recent years as entry level offerings from AMD and Nvidia have become increasingly more affordable with increasingly more power. The $100 price point is a good example of this with the R7 250X, R7 260 and R7 260X all being around that level alongside Nvidia’s GT 740 and GTX 750. Today we are looking at Sapphire’s R7 260X OC 1GB graphics card which can be had for as little as $115~ and as we already know the R7 260X offers an incredible amount of performance for the money since AMD dropped the pricing on it. As we note with all our non-AMD and non-Nvidia graphics card review what we are looking for is what the vendors have done with AMD’s reference platform. Right off the bat we can see Sapphire have changed quite a few things with the R7 260X reference design, Sapphire have halved the GDDR5 memory to 1GB, equipped a custom cooler and downclocked the GPU and memory frequencies despite claiming this to be an “OC” GPU. As we can see in the specifications below this allows Sapphire to offer a more competitive price, but how good is the card’s performance with these modifications? It is worth noting Sapphire aren’t the only ones doing this, most other vendors offer R7 260Xs with frequencies between 1000 and 1100MHz and memory between 6000 and 6500MHz, finding ones with 1100/6500 or higher frequencies is more the exception than the norm, but they can be found.

Energy-Efficient Core i5-4670S and Core i5-4670T Processors Review: Haswell Serv
     Wed, Sep 17 2014 | 12:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
LGA 1150 desktop processors lineup divides not only by families with different performance classes. They have some other grading – by projected power dissipation. Ordinary desktop processors have the most spreading, but there are many models with S and T letters in name which have artificially lowered TDP. Two examples of such CPUs we have reviewed.

Corsair Graphite 780T @ techPowerUp
     Wed, Sep 17 2014 | 11:05A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Corsair Graphite 780T is the successor to the 760T, a chassis that has been on the market for quite some time. It features the same new bold design we have seen on the 380T, but allows you to install a fully sized ATX board and features a lot more expandability."

For $30 you can vastly expand your Android phone or tablet. Most of what this card is used for is read operations, and the 30MB per second read speed is more than adequate for that.

Maingear Pulse 15 3K Gaming Laptop Review:
     Wed, Sep 17 2014 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We think it's fitting for Maingear to bring 3K resolution gaming to its Pulse line of laptops. Consider that playing games at full HD 1080p (1920x1080) on the desktop is nothing special these days, which is why we're seeing more and more players jump to higher resolution displays, from 2560x1440 (most 27-inch class monitors) on up to the emerging 4K (3840x2160) format. We're finally seeing some innovation again in the monitor market, yet laptop displays were stuck in a state of comatose for a while. Not anymore.

RAM Disk Guide Rev. 3.0.
     Wed, Sep 17 2014 | 9:00A | Beginners Guides | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The RAM disk has been around since the 1980s, but it has never been popular due to the high cost of computer memory. It is now making a comeback, partly because RAM is now cheap and plentiful and partly because solid state drives (SSDs) are fast replacing hard disk drives as the storage medium of choice. SSDs are not only much faster than hard disk drives, they are silent and virtually impervious to vibration and shock. The downside though is their limited lifespan. That's where the RAM disk comes in - it allows the user to reduce wear and tear on the SSD by shifting some of the work to it. There are, of course, pros and cons to the RAM disk, and this guide will guide you through it all. On top of that, we will teach you how to make full use of your RAM disk.

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.
