Fractal Design Adjust 108 Fan Controller Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Sat, Feb 23 2013 | 10:35A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Fan controllers are all about functionality and style. The Fractal Design Adjust 108 fits the bill for both with six 35w channels and a solid brushed aluminum panel. The Adjust 108 fits into a single 5.25 drive bay and has long 600mm 4-pin/3-pin fan cables to reach any part of a normal full tower case without stretching them across the motherboard. Power is provided to the controller and fans through a single 4-pin Molex cable or 15-pin SATA power cable. Each channels fan speed is adjusted with one of the rubberized sliders on the front of the panel. LED`s are present below each slider that shifts from white (low) to blue (high) when the sliders are adjusted."

EVGA SuperNOVA NEX750G Gold Power Supply Review
     Sat, Feb 23 2013 | 9:23A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The EVGA SuperNOVA NEX750G Gold power supply operates very efficiently and easily meets the 80 Plus Gold criteria for efficiency. It comes with a good assortment of all modular cables that include two pairs of 4+4 pin ATX/EPS 12V connectors and eight PCI-E connectors. Voltage regulation and AC ripple suppression were within specification and acceptable, but not as good as we would expect from a premium brand, enthusiast power supply. And while the cooling fan is advertised as being quiet for near-silent operation it proved to be far from it."

Mad Catz F.R.E.Q.5 Red Stereo Gaming Headset Review
     Sat, Feb 23 2013 | 9:04A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
February 2013 was supposed to be a very important month for me and the rest of the staff since during this month not one but two very special game titles were scheduled for release, first the Dragonborn DLC add-on for The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim and the long awaited Aliens Colonial Marines which as the title suggests was made after one of the best sci-fi/thriller movies of all time, Aliens. Unfortunately although the Dragonborn DLC proved to be worthy of our enthusiasm i can`t really say the same about Aliens Colonial Marines since after having played with it for almost 6 hours straight it left us with a bitter taste (mostly due to gameplay and graphics). Had Sega released the game 3 years ago there`s a good chance that we would all be astonished by it and sucked into the storyline, however this is 2013 and releasing a game with 2010 graphics is simply not the way to go, especially when you are releasing a sci-fi game with plenty of visual effects (although we did enjoy the Weyland-Yutani Corporation twist). Still both the Dragonborn DLC and the Aliens Colonial Marines came at just the right moment in time since almost 10 days ago we started testing of the latest F.R.E.Q.5 Red stereo headset by Mad Catz."

Asus Orion Pro @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Feb 23 2013 | 8:43A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to gaming, you only use two senses: sight and sound. While a great monitor, or an Eyefinity/nVidia surround setup can cost you $500 or more, a top of the line headset wont cost nearly that. Asus has sent over one of their Republic of Gamers branded headsets in the Orion Pro that falls directly in the category of high end gaming headset. In a sea of headsets ranging from awful to amazing, its time to see where the Orion Pro lands."

NVIDIA Kepler versus Fermi in Adobe After Effects CS6 @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Feb 22 2013 | 5:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We recently made a new video intro based on an excellent tutorial from Video Co-Pilot for our CES 2013 coverage and figured that we`d update to After Effects CS6. We have tons of video cards laying around the test lab, so we figured that we would compare some of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 500 `Fermi` and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 600 `Kepler` series video cards to see how they perform..."

The HP Pavilion Sleekbook 15z-b000 is an AMD quad-core powered Windows 8 Ultrabook laptop that has a lightweight chassis and decent performance. It does have below average battery life and mediocre graphics performance, but for some users, the latter won`t matter much."

CM STORM TRIGGER Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review
     Fri, Feb 22 2013 | 10:48A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Yesterday SONY announced the upcoming Playstation 4 console, short of that is since we didn`t actually see the console itself so my guess is that SONY has yet to decide on the design which is fine since we will not see it before this summer. Of course Microsoft is not far behind since they will also be announcing their upcoming XBOX 720 quite soon (probably by July in order to make Christmas sales). Regardless i am not much into consoles (but i do acknowledge that many are) mainly because i consider them quite inferior (specs wise) and also because i don`t like gamepads/d-pads (a keyboard just doesn`t feel at home when used with a console so PCs all the way for me). So because i happen to love using keyboards i always do my best to test every single one i can get my hands on and today we will be talking about the TRIGGER Mechanical Gaming Keyboard by CM STORM."

Dune HD TV-303D Universal FullHD Network Media Player Review
     Fri, Feb 22 2013 | 9:23A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Standalone hardware media players have been around for around 5 years (and some of you know that Ive been putting them through rigorous tests right from the beginning) but they really started to make DVD and Blu-Ray players obsolete roughly a couple of years ago when people started to realize that they can have the basic functionality of an dedicated HTPC system (mainly media file playback, file sharing and web surfing) at just a fraction of the cost and in many cases with superior image quality. Now looking back a few months i really can`t remember when was the last time we had a hardware/network media player on our test bench so when a courier arrived at our door just over a week ago holding the latest TV-303D Universal FullHD Network Media Player by Dune HD i felt somewhat relieved to be on the receiving end of a newly released device which is not directly related to PC and smartphones."

Kingston DataTraveler HyperX Predator 512GB Flash Drive Review @ Techgage
     Fri, Feb 22 2013 | 9:04A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
* For years, theres been a constant battle in the flash drive market where companies have tried to build the smallest drive possible but boast the most amount of space. In this regard, it has to be said that Kingston is the current winner. Its DT HyperX Predator isnt much larger than a regular performance thumb drive, but its storage *starts out* at 512GB."

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.
