Lian-Li PC-N1 Intel NUC Replacement Case Review @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Feb 25 2013 | 10:48A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the first things that we noticed with the PC-N1 is that Lian Li flipped the motherboard orientation. The CPU and chipset cooler is now located on the bottom of the case with large ventilation ports on both ends of the case. That obviously means that the I/O ports are now on the top of the PC-N1 case. On the front of the PC-N1 you have the brand name and the lone USB 2.0 port. Just above the front on the top cover you`ll find the power button. The power button has been completely redesigned since the original prototype was shown at CES 2013..."

A Futurelooks News Flash - Cooler Master HAF XB High Performance LAN Enclosure Review
     Mon, Feb 25 2013 | 9:19A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Cooler Master HAF XB offers an open air design inside, but integrates the right amount of features including handles on each side, just in case you decide to go mobile when you take it to a place like a LAN party. Recently, I hit the InfernaLAN LANfest and with the help of GIGABYTE, I put together a very cool system to show offer featuring this chassis. Lets see how it did in the field! *"

AZiO L3VETRON GM2000 Gaming Mouse and AZiO L3VETRON Mech5 Mechanical Keyboard Review
     Mon, Feb 25 2013 | 8:43A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Mechanical switches are becoming the typical switch in most gaming or enthusiast builds - at this point just having the mechanical switch isn`t enough to warrant such high dollar signs. That is where I feel the L3VETRON Mech5 was a major let down. It reminded me of the toy that looked super in the box until you saved up your money to buy it and find out what crap it actually was. The features of a movable number pad as well as the little Macro keypad do deserve some merit in the overall review. Although I`m not big on using macros the ability to choose to have them is nice while not massively increasing the standard layout of the keyboard. The removable ability and varied placement of the number pad was by far my favorite part of all of the AZiO products today. Just the ability to customize my layout in a LEGO sort of manner was like being a kid all over again - loved it."

     Mon, Feb 25 2013 | 7:05A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Razer Ouroboros Ambidextrous Gaming Mouse Review @ HardwareHeaven.com Recently Razer released their Lamborghini inspired mouse, the Ouroboros. With multiple interchangeable parts, ambidextrous layout, wired and wireless operation, changeable shape and a distinctive design it looks to compete with some impressive gaming mice at the high end of the gaming market."

3DMark Review
     Sun, Feb 24 2013 | 6:51P | Benchmarks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall this 3DMark is definitely proving to be a powerful tool with its many options, though they are only available to those who purchase a license. Even with the Basic edition though, you have access to the default tests, which is all that matters for comparing results and showing off your graphical prowess. It will be very interesting to see what happens once the mobile device versions are released though; these will usher in a consistent benchmarking tool for the most popular non-console gaming platforms currently available."

NZXT Phantom 630 @ techPowerUp
     Sun, Feb 24 2013 | 5:01P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NZXT has taken the 820 and shrunk it, removing some non-vital features in the process: the case clocks in at 50 US Dollars less while still being quite massive, with the same futuristic look and extremely well-engineered interior. We take the 200 US Dollar case for a spin to see if we end up eyeing its bigger brother at all."

Ineo Alienvibes S101 2.0 Desktop Speakers Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Sun, Feb 24 2013 | 1:17P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Alienvibes S101 desktop speakers are one choice that offer you a 2.0 speaker system with the goal of accurate sound reproduction. The Alienvibes S101 feature all wooden cabinet construction for more accurate vibrations and a plastic front bezel that has a high gloss finish on it for style. The speakers themselves produce five watts of power each with a peak output of twenty watts for the pair. The main speaker has a power on off switch, volume control, auxiliary headphone jack, and a LED power indicator. The cabinets are painted black and the front of the speakers do not have a grill cover on them, which shows off the speakers themselves."

Rosewill Tachyon Series 1000W Power Supply Review
     Sun, Feb 24 2013 | 11:48A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new Rosewill Tachyon-1000 proved to be a good performer and offers solid features at a competitive price in the 1000W category. Voltage regulation, AC ripple suppression, and build quality were all very good. Our test unit struggled a little in meeting the 80Plus Platinum efficiency criteria but as we explained earlier this is most likely due to the difference between our real-world, elevated operating temperatures and the 80Plus organizations room temperature standard. The Tachyon-1000 features both fixed and modular cables which will appeal to some users and disappoint those looking for 100% modular."

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.
