Antec HCG-750M 750W Power Supply Unit
     Fri, Jun 21 2013 | 9:01A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One COMPUTEX is over and another E3 has just begun so naturally things are somewhat chaotic these days with all the people going back and forth to attend both shows. Unfortunately although many manufacturers revealed quite a few impressive products during this years COMPUTEX we were unable to attend we did however managed to have some of those products delivered to us to start on their reviews before they were even unveiled in COMPUTEX so that in a way makes up for that. To be completely honest with you some of us are way more interested in this years CES since there are going to be (or at least should be) several ground breaking game titles presented there such as Chris Roberts Star Citizen/Squadron 42, Call Of Duty Ghosts, Star Wars Battlefront, Thief and Elite Dangerous by David Braben. So if any of you end up going there remember not to miss out on these amazing upcoming game titles (if you are not worry not, you can check E3 at our friends over at Gamespot ). Leaving E3 aside today we will be focusing one of the products presented in this years COMPUTEX the HCG-750M High Current Gamer Modular 750W PSU by Antec."

     Fri, Jun 21 2013 | 9:00A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At the end of last year we reviewed LG's 21:9 monitor, the 29EA93-P. It was the first super widescreen monitor using a panel from LG Display from LG Electronics, and it was only a matter of time before more manufacturers would introduce their first 21:9 monitors. We've seen announcements from AOC and Philips, but it was Dell that was able to deliver theirs next. Today we take a closer look at the Dell UltraSharp U2913WM.

NETGEAR XS708E ProSafe Plus 10GbE Switch @ Benchmark Reviews
     Fri, Jun 21 2013 | 3:52A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The cell phone and Ethernet are 40 years old this year and both are omnipresent in our digital lives. Like many elements of today`s consumer tech, Ethernet was developed at XEROX PARC and then commercialized elsewhere. Ethernet came to the PC in 1982, with a bandwidth cap of 10 Megabits per second; most consumers and small businesses are now operating at 1Gb/s speeds. That will change soon to 10Gb/s, if the NETGEAR XS708E 10GbE Switch is any indication. Its eight RJ-45 ports are designed to interface with common Cat 6 wiring, and it also has one SFP+ port to handle fiber optic connections. Benchmark Reviews brings you an inside look at a break-out offering in the NETGEAR ProSAFE Plus Switch line, which brings 10GbE connectivity down to the masses."

Tt eSPORTS SHOCK Dynamite Orange Gaming Headset
     Thu, Jun 20 2013 | 4:53P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I don`t know if it has something to do with the increasing number of professional gaming teams coming out around every corner (a trend i will probably never figure out) but so far inside the first 6 months of 2013 we`ve witnessed the introduction of more gaming headsets than we did during the entire 2012. Personally i enjoy using headphones while listening to music but they are not my primary choice/preference when watching a movie or playing games (I prefer my complete A/V surround sound systems for that) although i have to acknowledge that a good gaming headset can be of extreme use especially if you are not living alone and you don`t want to disturb others while playing your favorite game title which is exactly why i have assigned one gaming headset for each of my gaming systems including my main Toshiba Qosmio laptop. Todays review is about one such product and more precisely the SHOCK Dynamite Orange Gaming Headset by our friends over at Tt eSPORTS."

GTX 780 Overclocking Guide

Posted by: STAFF
The performance gains to be had from overclocking a GTX 780 are likely dramatic enough to overtake an NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan and beyond. Frame rates are much improved across the board and in my view, brings the GTX 780 to a whole new performance tier.

PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
