Posted by: STAFF
It’s a self-evident truth that our requirement for storage will never stop increasing. While the cloud promises plenty for the future, up and download speeds will need to increase several fold before we can do away with local storage. That leaves NAS and internal drives. Icy Box offers a handy solution for those who want direct drive access.

Intel Core i7-5960X Haswell-E Review
     Sun, Sep 21 2014 | 4:02P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel's Extreme Edition processor line is over a decade old now, starting way back in 2003 with the single-core Pentium 4 EE 3.4GHz. Fast forward to today, the chip we'll be looking at boasts eight cores, a massive 20MB smart cache, support for the latest DDR4 memory, and is accompanied by the new X99 chipset for more SATA 6Gb/s ports (10 rather than just two) and finally brings native USB 3.0 to Intel's flagship platform.

PowerColor R9 285 Turbo Duo
     Sun, Sep 21 2014 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”After settling on a 1075MHz clock speed for the core I moved on to the memory and used the same strategy before fine tuning the result at 1511MHz. Overall the boost in core clock speed over the 945MHz factory clock speed was 130MHz on the core or roughly 13% worth of free clock speed. The Elpida GDDR5 memory ICs gave up just under 10% more clock speed or 136MHz. These are not stellar numbers, but 10%+ bumps in overall clock speed will give you that extra few FPS that may make 2560x1440 gaming that much more enjoyable.”

R9 285 TurboDuo featuring 2GB GDDR5 memory
     Sun, Sep 21 2014 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD introduces its Tonga core GPU with the new Radeon R9 285, a card that picks up the battle for the $250 MSRP price segment from the R9 280, with NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 760 being the main target. Tonga is a potluck of features that span across various iterations of AMD architecture, including Mantle API support, CrossFire XDMA technology, TrueAudio, PowerTune, and project FreeSync. We review PowerColor's version of the card, the R9 285 TurboDuo featuring 2GB GDDR5 memory and a 945/1375 (5500 effective) MHz core/memory factory overclock, complete with a custom dual-fan cooling solution that promises increased performance with lower heat and noise levels.

Corsair Graphite 380T Mini ITX Case Review
     Sun, Sep 21 2014 | 12:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Computer form factors keep getting smaller and smaller, but the market for smaller systems keeps growing everyday mainly due to the availability of components that allow users to build extremely powerful systems in very constrained spaces. Corsair clearly understands this, with the release of the Corsair Obsidian 250D earlier in 2014 it became clear that there was a need for Mini-ITX designs to be implemented in the rest of their lines of products, leading to the release of the Graphite 380T, the case Benchmark Reviews will be taking a look at today.

XTracGear Ripper XXL Mousing Surface Review
     Sun, Sep 21 2014 | 12:01P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I get a lot of products for review and honestly I don’t keep or even use them after the review. I give them away to family and friends usually or I just tuck them away to use maybe later. One of the products over the years though that I loved and used everyday was the Ripper XXL from XTrac which is a really big mousepad, technically called a deskpad. I had the Ripper XXL for a few years and I finally had to sadly throw it away as it was just too worn and frayed. Very luckily for me XTracGear recently, I guess you could say, re-introduced and/or redesigned their Ripper line of mousepads and sent me a nice new XXL over for review. So read one to learn more… "

SuperNOVA 1200 P2 power supply
     Sun, Sep 21 2014 | 12:00P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
EVGA continues to raise the bar with the introduction of two new power supplies in their popular SuperNOVA line, the 1000 P2 and 1200 P2. Both new power supplies are 80Plus Platinum certified and feature all modular cables, high-quality Japanese brand capacitors, a single high-power +12V rail, and a 140mm dual ball bearing cooling fan (with the ability to operate in silent, fan-less mode at low power levels). The 1000 P2 and 1200 P2 are also backed by a 10-year warranty (with registration). And last but not least, many PC PSU enthusiasts will be happy to know the new 1000 P2 and 1200 P2 are being supplied by Super Flower; the same OEM that EVGA has been using for many of their higher output, premium PSUs!

     Sun, Sep 21 2014 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since Intel no longer manufacturers desktop motherboards, it works closely with its partners to ensure products are ready when new CPUs and chipsets are introduced. The X99 Express chipset, part of the LGA2011-V3 system that replaces the aging X79/LGA2011 system, is Intel’s newest foray into very high end desktop systems, and today Benchmark Reviews looks at the bundled software, features, utilities, and performance of the ASUS X99-DELUXE motherboard.

Kingston HyperX Cloud Headset Review
     Sun, Sep 21 2014 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Kingston has been a name we have come to know in the PC industry, especially with system memory products. However, with the growing number of PC peripherals and accessories, it was only a matter of time before Kingston started to tap their brand cache and jump into this arena too. With the e-sports crowd growing in popularity, Kingston saw an opportunity. They created a division called “HyperX.” Under the HyperX branding, Kingston is now developing accessories and peripherals to feed this growing group. This new HyperX Cloud Headset is one of those products. Let’s put it to the test and see how well it holds up against the competition.”

ANDROMEDIA AM Bluetooth Speakers Review
     Sun, Sep 21 2014 | 9:01A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Lately small wireless Bluetooth speakers are becoming the rage. I see them popping up everywhere, and to my amazement they exhibit the sound quality you would normally expect to find on much larger speakers. Moreover, they are great for most portable devices like cellphones, laptops, and tablets, making them easy to carry and perfect for the office or while relaxing at the beach, parks, or camping. Today we are looking at four such speakers from Andromedia: the Golf, Supersonic-P, Supersonic-X, and the Curve-mini. These speakers are designed for laptops, cell phones, and tablets alike, but before we jump in here’s a word about Andromedia.”

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.
