Battle of the SATA 3.0 Controllers
     Sat, Sep 03 2011 | 4:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With newer SSDs now coming well within 10% of maxing out a SATA 3.0 port, it's important to make sure that your motherboard is properly equipped to handle such drives if planning to buy one. In our testing, while AMD's and Intel's solutions offered superb performance, Marvell's leaved a bit (or a lot) to be desired.

TP-LINK TL-WN822N USB Wireless N Adapter
     Sat, Sep 03 2011 | 4:02P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"A small and compact wireless USB dongle may seem like it'll save you a lot of space, but unless you absolutely need something that is small, then bigger is still better. A bigger wireless dongle means that it has a bigger antenna - or even two antennas in the case of the one I have here today. The TP-LINK TL-WN822N is a high gain wireless N USB adapter with two external 3dBI antennas. This adapter may not be as small as a quarter, but it's still not much larger than a pack of gum which makes it easy to pack away and travel with too. Let's see how the TL-WN822N stacks for it's great price."

Thermaltake Toughpower 1350W Power Supply Review
     Sat, Sep 03 2011 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Thermaltake is back on our test benches and back with some very big iron. Thermaltake made some of the "biggest and baddest" computer power supplies years ago and we are about to find out if the company does once again. However this Toughpower is well above a kilowatt and surely will have a limited appeal, but also surely attract a lot of attention.
