Huntkey Jumper 600B Power Supply Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Sun, Feb 26 2012 | 11:54A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Two years ago, we reviewed the Huntkey Jumper 550, which exceeded our expectations. Now it is time to review the Jumper 600B, which comes with the 80 Plus Bronze certification. (Hence the letter B after the product wattage; it is important to understand that the 500 W and 550 W models from this family have the standard 80 Plus certification.) Let`s see how the Jumper 600B fared on our tests."

Intel Core i7-3820 Sandy Bridge-E Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Sun, Feb 26 2012 | 11:54A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although flagship parts generate lots of hype, it is the mainstream parts that people actually buy. The aggressively-priced Core i7-3820 is Intel`s attempt at drawing enthusiasts towards its slightly languishing high-end LGA2011 platform, but if faces stiff competition from the Core i7-2600K and 2700K models.

News - AZZA Fusion 3000 Full Tower Case Review at Overclockers Online
     Sun, Feb 26 2012 | 11:54A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AZZA designs their cases with gamers in mind and the Fusion 3000 is a full tower that certainly fits this bill. With enough water cooling holes to satisfy even the most crazed water cooler and space for up to a 360mm radiator the level of cooling you choose is open. Support for the largest of motherboards (XL-ATX), 10 PCI expansion slots and room for the longest of video cards there is virtually no limit to your hardware choices. Ten Easy Swap trays, four of which are for SSDs, will mean you might have a harder time finding drives to fill the Fusion 3000 than installing them."

Five Years with Blu-ray - Part Three
     Sun, Feb 26 2012 | 9:01A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In five years, Blu-ray has certainly broken through and achieved the market penetration and consumer awareness that the format needed to survive. Had the format war with HD-DVD not been rectified and both formats hobbled on, this certainly would not have occurred. A visit to your local video shop or retailer is indicative of the strength of support that exists for the format. Retail stores simply won`t invest in floor space when money is not being returned. That the Blu-ray section at my local JB Hi-Fi grows larger and larger every time I visit is evidence that the format is not going anywhere. Despite this, there exists some media commentators and certain companies with vested interests who downplay the success of Blu-ray and insist that other technologies will soon surpass it. This is grossly exaggerated at best, and woefully misguided at worst. The truth is, Blu-ray is here for the long haul. It will continue chipping away at the market share of DVD until the lustre of the format is well and truly depleted."

SSD NEWS: Runcore ProV Max 120GB SSD Review - Runcore Strikes Gold With SandForce Premium Firmware
     Sun, Feb 26 2012 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It was just over a year ago that we analyzed the Runcore ProV 3Gbps 240GB SSD as one of the top SSDs available, then surpassing some RAID configuration performance results. As amazing as that review was, it now stands to be a great example of how far SSD technology has progressed this past year. This report looks at Runcore`s ProV Max SSD which contains the SATA 3 SF-2281 processor, as did our report of the Runcore T50 120GB mSATA SSD that we reviewed a few months prior."

BIOS Option Of The Week - PCI/VGA Palette Snoop
     Sat, Feb 25 2012 | 5:34P | BIOS | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meager beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition. Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend. This week, we will be taking a look at the PCI/VGA Palette Snoop BIOS setting."

Cyberlink PowerDVD 12 Ultra Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Sat, Feb 25 2012 | 3:41P | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Despite the name, Cyberlink`s PowerDVD12 is compatible with a wide range of video file formats. Cyberlink`s PowerDVD 12 Ultra further expands media library format support by including MKV, FLV, MOV, M2TS and MK3D video files as well as playback on devices such as Android and iOS phones and even DLNA TVs. In addition, Cyberlink PowerDVD12 supports full integration with Facebook, YouTube, and Flickr so users can share their media library with friends easily and conveniently. Using Cyberlink PowerDVD 12`s TruTheater HD technology, users can also convert any 2D video including BluRay and YouTube videos to stereoscopic 3D. All of these including tight feature integration and wide format support is what sets Cyberlink PowerDVD 12 from the competition.///"

Enermax Platimax 850W Review @ Vortez

Epic Gear Meduza Gaming Mouse with Hybrid Dual Sensor Technology @ TechwareLabs
     Sat, Feb 25 2012 | 3:41P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are taking a look at the Epic Gear Meduza gaming mouse. What sets this mouse apart from the legions of other gaming mice is its HDST (Hybrid Dual Sensor Technology) which means the mouse is equipped with both an optical and a laser sensor. The idea behind this is that you can buy one mouse and have the choice between super fast laser or ultra stable optical with only the flip of a switch. Read on to see if this new tech can deliver the best of both worlds."

EPICGEAR Meduza Mouse and Pad Review
     Sat, Feb 25 2012 | 3:41P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The weight of the mouse is slightly heavier than the Razer DeathAdder. Along with many mice these days, the weight isn`t adjustable without your own modifications. The weight really seems to be what makes it smooth and since you really don`t have to force the mouse around, it`s not really an issue. Overall, I liked how this mouse`s design supported more of the hand with the individual finger rests. Perhaps it`s not perfect for my hand, but I plan on using it for a while, as I`ve gotten too used to how well it moves about without getting caught up."

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.
