Fractal Design Arc Midi Tower Case Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Fri, Jan 20 2012 | 5:39P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Fractal Design`s Arc is billed as a new take on the classic inexpensive mid tower design and from the looks of things, it does differ quite a bit from the competition. With an extra wide body, a massive number of fan mounts and a great looking black / white color scheme, this $109 case is certainly unique in its own right."

LaCie Little Big Disk Thunderbolt (240GB SSD) Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Fri, Jan 20 2012 | 5:39P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The LaCie Little Big Disk Thunderbolt (240GB SSD) is currently the least expensive way to obtain Thunderbolt speeds for your late-model Mac. It`s half the price of the Promise Pegasus R6, the only other Thunderbolt drive on the market, but that doesn`t mean it`s cheap.?"

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."

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.
