Corsair Obsidian Series 350D @ LanOC Reviews
     Mon, Oct 07 2013 | 10:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Five years ago if you were on the market for a case there were really only a few directions to go. More recently this has changed considerably; there are so many manufactures that werent even in the market five years ago. One of those manufactures is Corsair, moved into the market with a very impressive 800D and has been slowly filling out their product lineup from then on. The Obsidian Series 350D that I will be taking a look at today is the first mid tower from the Obsidian Series. With styling from the popular 800D we know it looks great, but the only way to find out where it stands otherwise is to look at it more in depth."

Bitmore Universal Bluetooth Wireless Audio Adapter Review
     Sun, Oct 06 2013 | 11:45A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This is where adapters come into play. But they are in themselves a product of planned obsolescence. Take the Bitmore M8 Bluetooth Audio Receiver Benchmark Reviews has today for instance; On the one hand it will enable bluetooth connectivity on a wide range of audio devices ? and potentially save you from spending lots of money on upgrades, but on the other hand it is another purchase that you wouldn?t have had to make otherwise."

Kingston 10th Anniversary HyperX 16GB 2400MHz Review
     Sat, Oct 05 2013 | 6:21P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
During my testing I found that while the kit ran flawlessly at its rated speed of 2400MHz, they just did not offer a whole lot of headroom above that, even when pushing 1.75v+ through them. Seeing how running a 125MHz or 166MHz strap is a bit easier on the memory controller, I swapped to the 125MHz divider and started upping the frequency up a little at a time until reaching the maximum clock speed on the HyperX modules. I left the memory sub timings alone and controlled by the board, adjusted the primary timings to 12-13-13-33, adjusted the DRAM voltage to 1.70v, started up again, and finally reached 1260.2MHz or just over 2520MHz for a 120MHz gain in clock speed. That represents about a 5% gain from just testing and tweaking. What I found was that the Kingston HyperX 10th Anniversary modules performed well even with the boosted clock speed. The low profile heat sink makes sure there are no restrictions to the CPU cooling solution used."

How to Overclock an Intel 4770K Guide
     Sat, Oct 05 2013 | 12:52P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel C-State allows for the CPU to lower its current frequency along with voltage. C-States vary from C0 (Operating state) down to Haswell`s new C6/C7 in which the CPU is in sleep/hibernation. By default all motherboards will have this enabled typically under the title Intel-C-State. When C-State is set to C0, the CPU will not drop voltage or frequency. This can be helpful to establish an overclock if running into stability problems. While I noticed zero negative impact on the Haswell, please be aware that using CPU Voltage Override along with enabling C-State may cause the voltage to stay constant when the CPU frequency drops. Once again this did not happen for me but with some motherboards this can be an issue. The solution is to use CPU Voltage Offset instead or disable C-State completely."

Posted by: STAFF
If all of our portable devices had wireless charging capabilities built in, and all we needed to do was buy a wireless charging pad, then maybe wireless charging would take off a bit better.
