     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 11:49A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We were about to give up on an affordable triple monitor stand that had articulating arms for a sweet AMD Eyefinity or NVIDIA Surround gaming setup when we ran across the MonMount LCD-1930 Triple LCD Monitor Stand Desk Mount that costs just $48.88 plus shipping! Compared to the other three monitor stands on the market this one looks like a bargain! Read on to see what we think of this space saving mount!"

Icy Dock MB994SP-4SB-1 Full Metal Quad Bay 2.5in HDD & SSD Backplane Cage Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 11:39A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Icy Dock MB994P-4S-1SB 4-in-1 Hot Swap Backplane Cage can hold up to four 2.5 drives in a single 5.25 drive bay. Unlike the Icy Dock MB994P-4S however, the MB994P-4S-1SB lacks the SAS HDD support, requiring only a single 4-pin Molex for power while adding a toggle switch for the built-in pair of 40mm rear exhaust fans. Built with SECC, the Icy Dock MB994SP-4S-1SB is extremely durable and provides drive protection as well as heat dissipation even in the most strenuous and rugged computing environments.///"

Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H Intel Z77 Motherboard Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 11:35A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have been hearing a lot about Intel?s 3rd generation Core processors and the Z77 chipset. The Z77 chipset is made to be an upgrade from the current Z68 chipset. Using many of the same technologies as the Z68 chipset the Z77 also adds support for the Virtu Universal MVP, native USB 3.0 support, Smart Connect and Rapid Start. Today we are taking a look at our first motherboard based on the Intel Z77 chipset the Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H. This motherboard is one of the twelve Z77 motherboards Gigabyte has announced. It is set to be their mainstream Z77 offering so let?s just right in and take a look."

GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD5H WiFi & GA-Z77X-UD3H Motherboard Reviews @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 11:34A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Intel Z77 Express chipset is now out in the wild! To celebrate we are going to be looking at two Intel Z77 motherboards from GIGABYTE. The GA-Z77X-UD5 WiFi and the GA-Z77X-UD3H will be given an in-depth look in this review. How will they do against another Intel Z77 and Z68 motherboard? Read on to find out as we put these boards and the new chipset to the test with a Sandy Bridge processor! The Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H-WB WiFi is unique in the sense that it includes a PCIe expansion card that offers Bluetooth 4.0 and IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi connectivity. This board is obviously aimed at those with mobile devices like the Applie iPhone 4S that already support Bluetooth 4.0 for quick wireless data transfers. This board also features a 12 phase power VRM design that is cooled by a passive cooler that is interlinked with a heatpipe. We also like that the Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H-WB WiFi has two LAN ports and that one of them uses an Intel GbE LAN chip. We`ve had good luck with Intel controllers and not all boards use them... "

GCC 4.7 Compiler Performance On AMD FX-8150 Bulldozer
     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 11:33A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While we have seen that Intel`s Sandy Bridge is doing well on the new GCC 4.7 compiler, has AMD`s Bulldozer CPU architecture advanced at all for this leading multi-platform compiler? Up today are benchmarks of GCC 4.7.0 -- with comparative benchmarks going back to GCC 4.4 -- from an AMD FX-8150 Eight-Core Bulldozer setup."

Gaming Video Cards for a Steal: The GeForce GTX 560 & Radeon HD 6870 @ circuitREMIX
     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 11:31A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the current video card market, all eyes are on the Radeon HD 7000 series and the GeForce GTX 600 series. They are the latest and greatest series of GPUs from AMD and nVidia respectively. And they both have great offerings with the high end Radeon HD 7970 and the GeForce GTX 680. Right now, AMD has offerings from the Radeon HD 7000 series that extend from low to high price points, and the same thing will happen with nVidia in the near future. Now that new generations of GPUs have been released, it`s out with the old. During this time of transition between generations, there is a sweet spot in the mainstream video card market at around the $150 price point ...and it features cards based on the Radeon HD 6870 and the GeForce GTX 560. While I haven`t reviewed AMD`s current flagship mainstream offering, the Radeon HD 7770, I`ve been keeping track of articles and reviews on the websites of our colleagues. What I`ve generally found is that the 7770 is consistently slower than both the 6870 and GTX 560, and it`s also a bit more expensive."

Enermax Fulmo Mid-Tower @ Techreaction.net
     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 11:27A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, we have the smaller brother of the Enermax Fulmo GT, the Fulmo. It comes packed with features for a mid-tower which Enermax hopes will put it up at the top of everyone?s buying lists. The vertical HDD mounting brackets seem like a genius idea to help free up space and allow for more airflow. The top I/O area sports a USB 3.0 and 2.0 connections, as well as a hot-swap dock for use with your 2.5? and 3.5? drives. They have also included a velcro strap for your PSU to help give you some added security if you plan on moving around your case. Let?s move on and see what this Fulmo can really do in our testing ? Read on."

Cougar Evolution Full Tower PC Case @ TestFreaks
     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 11:24A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Up for review today I?ve got another PC case called the Evolution and it?s from a company called Cougar. This case is not exactly what I would call expensive coming in at around $100, but it?s got plenty of features that even enthusiast users can appreciate like room for large video cards, and SATA dock built-in and a removable hard drive cage. The case is all black, inside and out and it features a built-in fan controller for up to six fans to keep your system cool and quiet."

Corsair Vengeance M60 Gaming Mouse Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 11:23A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I?m no different. My ?gaming? mice journey started out with a Microsoft IntelliMouse Explorer; then a Logitech MX 1000; then the Logitech MX Revolution; then the Logitech Performance MX; and currently with the Logitech G700. If you look at all these mice you can see that other than the MX 1000 the layout and look do not differentiate from each other much. The G700 I possess I thought was by far the best mouse overall I?ve ever used. Other than the battery life, when in wireless mode sucks balls, the mouse was a perfect fit for me. The size, the speed, the button layout, the complete overall feel?it was amazing. So, when Bob asked me to review the Corsair Vengeance M60 Performance Gaming Mouse I was a bit hesitant. I don?t like reviewing products that I have a defined bias towards even before I open the box. I couldn?t see how anything could be as good as my G700. Well, I?ve been using the M60 for 3 weeks now and boy was I wrong."

Corsair Carbide 300R Case Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 11:22A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
*Regardless of their dominance within the case market, one area where Corsair hadn?t ventured into has been the entry level sub-$90 category. But that?s all about to change with the introduction of the new Carbide 300R. It boasts a good list of features and a relatively neutral design but will this be enough to overcome some fierce competition? * *"

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.
