Genius Slimstar 8000 Wireless Keyboard/Mouse Combo Review
     Fri, Sep 02 2011 | 12:02P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Genius has a solid product with the SlimStar 8000 wireless keyboard/mouse combo. Both devices have a relatively small footprint and will easily fit in most laptop bags. Construction is solid and you can expect reliable performance. It may come in at a cheap price of $25, but it doesn't feel cheap. And at that price, anyone who needs a basic keyboard/mouse to use with a laptop or HTPC can afford it."

Xigmatek Pantheon Computer Case Review
     Fri, Sep 02 2011 | 12:00P | Chipset | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Xigmatek's Pantheon chassis is a really nice case, especially for the money. For around a hundred bucks you get a distinctive look, excellent tool-free solutions and a rich feature set that makes the Pantheon a very good value, even in this crowded pricepoint. The cooling performance is very good, and the case responds well to additional case fans, at least on the side panel."

Crysis 2 DX11 Tessellation & High-Res Texture Pack
     Fri, Sep 02 2011 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Attempting to install the new Crysis 2 1.9 update and added DX11 Tessellation & High-Res Texture Pack felt like anything but a "gift." We give you our first hand experience and a treasure trove of screen shots for good measure. Crysis 2 is a little closer to what it should have been at launch, but certainly the gameplay is still meh.

Enermax MaxRevo 1350W Power Supply Review
     Fri, Sep 02 2011 | 9:02A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Enermax has long been a favorite of ours when it comes to power supplies for heavy hitter enthusiasts pushing huge system wattage loads. Today it is launching a new flagship product that comes to up touting a huge 1350 watt usage rating. Does Enermax continue its top shelf legacy?

ASUS F1A75-V Pro Layout and Design
     Fri, Sep 02 2011 | 9:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The F1A75-V Pro will be ASUS' flagship model regarding AMD's FM1 APUs' Llano. Therefore it's able to score with a long featurelist. But first of all we will check if it is able to convince from a layout and design perspective.

BitFenix Survivor Core Review
     Fri, Sep 02 2011 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Survivor Core, BitFenix has a very aggressively priced midi tower in its portfolio that comes with quite a number of features. Therefore we're very curious if this thing is able to convice in our review.

ASUS GTX580 MATRIX
     Thu, Sep 01 2011 | 4:03P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"For us enthusiasts out there that budget this kind of money for hardware, the offer is definitely there. You get a premium, hand-picked GPU, a brand new software suite that is full of potential, Clear CMOS-like functionality, hardware monitoring and modding, the cooling to make it happen, and the glorious silence of the huge cooler when you're not tweaking. Not to mention this thing is built like a rock — there's nothing like a premium part actually feeling, you know, premium."

Cooler Master Notepal U Stand
     Thu, Sep 01 2011 | 4:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"While it doesn't have the same cooling power as some of the more powerful ones, it has a lot of features that make it worth using. For instance, the USB hub turns my MacBook Pro's 2 USB ports into 4, and the ability to tilt the cooler means I can really customize how I want it to look. Also, the ability to move the fans around can allow you to get the cooler air exactly where it needs to go to help cool your specific laptop more efficiently."

G.Skill RipjawsX PC3-14900 Cas 9
     Thu, Sep 01 2011 | 4:01P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"My goal was to increase the memory frequency as much as I could while keeping the latency timings low. In my efforts, I was able to push this set to 2000MHz before receiving errors in Memtest86+ and losing stability. I did attempt to loosen the timings to 10-10-10-28 and push higher than 2000MHz, but it resulted in dropped performance. Thus, the overclocked tests were run with these modules at 2000MHz with stock latency timings."

ASUS ENGTX580 DirectCU II
     Thu, Sep 01 2011 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Just the overclocking street cred alone puts this card into the upper crust of GTX 580 video cards for good reason. The overclocking results achieved with the GTX 580 DCII are the highest I have reached out of the five-odd GTX 580 cards I have tested. No small feat when you look at it. ASUS has this card equipped to run the numbers with its exclusive SAP power circuit. Run the numbers it did on the GF110 core. I was able to reach a stable core clock of 979MHz, or almost 200MHz over the as-delivered 782MHz."

Rosewill Thor V2 ATX Full-Tower Gaming Computer Case Review
     Thu, Sep 01 2011 | 12:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Having never reviewed any Rosewill products in the past, I really didn't know what to expect. To say that I was impressed with the Thor V2 full-tower chassis would be a bit of an understatement. With top-of-the-line cooling performance, a rich and innovative feature set, great looks and a roomy and convenient interior, this is the best full-tower chassis I've seen in a long time."

Asus O!Play HD2 Media Player Review
     Thu, Sep 01 2011 | 12:02P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Asus has packed a lot of functionality into the O!Play HD2 media player. It supports all the popular HD video formats as well as a myriad of audio and photo formats, and the user interface is intuitive enough that anyone in the house can use it. A built-in 3.5" HDD bay allows the buyer to add internal storage, and the USB 3.0 port ensures you won't be waiting all day for file transfers to complete."

Moneual Sonamu G100 ECO-Friendly Micro ATX Computer Case Review
     Thu, Sep 01 2011 | 12:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Article Snippet: "The so-called "green revolution" in computing has been progressing in fits and starts, at least in the mainstream computing arena. Unsurprisingly, manufacturers will opt to target the larger and more lucrative gaming community, but there are always a few suppliers who will take the risk to go after a smaller niche market like this. Enter Moneual. Known more for their high-end HTPC case offerings, Moneual has entered the green computing market with their new Sonamu G100 micro ATX chassis with a feature that they call "Green Mode" to allow the user to put the system in a "Standby Zero" state, consuming no power when not in use."

Asus ENGTX460 GTX 460 Voltage Tweak Review
     Thu, Sep 01 2011 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"So is Asus' ENGTX460 Voltage Tweak Edition still a relevant graphics card solution even today? To be honest, I'd have to say with AMD's and Nvidia's next generation offerings and the competition between the two keeping prices as low as possible, it would be hard to say that this card would be a way to save a couple bucks."

MSI N580GTX Lightning Review
     Thu, Sep 01 2011 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the GTX 580 Lightning, MSI has a graphics card in its portfolio which promises to be extra class. Therefore the card comes with a completely customized TwinFrozerII cooler as well as a PCB that has been redesigned from bottom up. In this case you'll find numerous overclocking features combined with a reasonable noise level. For us this is reason enough to be very curious about the results.

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.

Rating:
The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
