CyberPowerPC Shows us Their Black Mamba and NZXT Switch 810 at CES 2012
     Fri, Jan 20 2012 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our friends at CyberPowerPC were showing some seriously decked-out gaming rigs this year at CES 2012. To be honest, we've always had good experiences with their products here in the lab but the systems on display at CES showcased very impressive build quality, immaculate wire-routing along with impeccable pipe-work for their water cooling setups. On display were several systems, including the rather bad-ass Fang III Series Black Mamba; a monster of a system that's of course super-charged with an over-the-top component configuration. The company was also showcasing a system built with NZXT's just-launched Switch 810 Gaming Chassis.

OCZ ZT Series 750w, 650w and 550w
     Fri, Jan 20 2012 | 12:01P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The OCZ ZT Series is very well priced and we were surprised to find the 550w model online for as little as $90. As tempting as that is, potential buyers could be even more tempted by the higher capacity units which are only a fraction more expensive. The 650w version for example costs just $10 more, while the 750w version is another $10 again.

Silverstone SUGO SG08 mITX Case@ Pro-Clockers
     Fri, Jan 20 2012 | 11:31A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Yes, Silverstone has cases like the SG05 (SG06) but they can only support a GPU up to nine inches. And you also have the SG07, which can house much longer cards. But Silverstone isn`t one to leave customers without options. Their newest SFF casing is called the SG08. The SG08 can support a GPU up to 12.2 inches long which would include the Nvidia GTX 580. And there is no need to look for a power supply as the SG08 comes with a 600 watt power unit."

CES 2012: AViiQ @ ThinkComputers.org
     Fri, Jan 20 2012 | 9:38A | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AViiQ is known for their laptop stands and portable products. They focus on portability and usability. At CES 2012, AViiQ showed us both of their laptop stands, which place the laptop at a 12 degree ergonomic angle. The Smart Case for the iPad 2 which doesn?t compromise style for performance. A Portable Charging Station with easy cable management for multiple devices, a 4 port USB hub, and a battery pack so you won?t need any outlet. Ready Clips, which are flexible cables that are very portable and easy to carry. Quick Change is a 3-in-1 USB cable that features micro, mini, and an Apple dock port. Mini Surge Protector that easily allows you to get power to 3 AC outlets and 2 USB ports in a portable form factor. Lastly, AViiQ?s Slim Travel Adapter eliminates the need for bulky electrical adapters by folding up into a neat package when not in use."

CES 2012: Plextor @ ThinkComputers.org
     Fri, Jan 20 2012 | 9:38A | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Plextor showed us around their suite at CES 2012 which featured their optical drives and SSD?s. We took a look at the PX-612U, an external DVD writer that has a built in card slot and can connect to a TV thanks to Plextor?s PlexTV software. PlexTV allows you to display anything from the PX-612U onto your TV, whether it is a DVD Movie, or something from the SD card slot, like photos or home videos. On the SSD side, Plextor showed off their M3 Pro Series. A really neat feature about the M3 Pro Series is Plextor?s True Speed technology. True Speed manages the SSD in a manner where performance doesn?t degrade when the drive is in a dirty state. Plextor had a speed test demo running in their suite to prove that True Speed really works, and I can attest True Speed provides a significant boost in read and write speeds on dirty drives."

Corsair G.Skill Mushkin and Patriot X79 Quad-Channel Memory Review
     Fri, Jan 20 2012 | 9:33A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The last G.Skill memory I looked at did quite well in the overclocking department and thankfully, this kit does not deviate from that path - the base speed of 2133 MHz was just the starting point for the kit. Making the jump to 2400 MHz, though, required some tweaking of the primary latencies and voltages. CAS latency was bumped to 10 with the tRCD bumped to 12 and the voltage to 1.67 V. The memory controller voltage was fine at 1.05 V with this configuration as seen by the long term (well, 7 hours at least) stability testing of the overclock. The higher speed, coupled with a decent CPU overclock, showed measurable performance gains in testing. The overclocking margin or headroom came in at 13+% or 281 MHz for the time spent tweaking the modules for maximum clocks without killing every day performance. This kit from G.Skill reached the highest overclocked speed in comparison to the other modules in this testing session."

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.
