[DreamWare Computers] SilverStone PP06 Individually Sleeved PSU Cables
     Sat, Apr 13 2013 | 9:19A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the unique design traits to SilverStone`s modular power supplies is that they`re fully modular. Where as most manufacturers will hard wire the mandatory cables, usually the motherboard, EPS/ATX and one PCIE connector, SilverStone has opted to make even those cables removable. Their reasoning behind this design choice is well justified though; they have a variety of after market cable options that can do everything from giving you short cables for small form factor cases, or premium looking cables for enthusiasts with windowed cases. Today I have the PP06 cables here which have each individual wire (not wire strand, but wire) sleeved in a premium quality material mesh sleeving. The PP06 cables look great at first glance and are bound to add some flashy looks to your case, so let`s check them out!"

Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD4H Intel Z77 Motherboard Review
     Sat, Apr 13 2013 | 9:00A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"PCSTATS really liked what we saw from Gigabyte's Intel Z77 based GA-Z77X-UD4H motherboard -- the board graciously offers up a comprehensive feature set, its layout and implementation are well executed and the build quality is first rate. The board offers up two PCI Express x16 slots for two-way graphics card set ups in x8/x8 mode, single graphics cards will run in x16 mode. Graphics cards will run at PCI Express Gen 2.0 or PCI Express Gen 3.0 support depending on the CPU architecture and videocard - the platform is PCI-E 3.0 compliant.

Four 1.5v DDR-3 memory slots accommodate up to 32GB of dual channel DDR3-1600/1333/1066 RAM and include support for Extreme Memory Profiles (XMP) if that's important to you. On the graphics front we have a couple options: dual monitor integrated graphics via the onboard video outputs, one or two discrete videocards in SLI/CrossfireX and finally, a mix of discrete and integrated graphics care of LucidLogix VirtuMVP."

Ineo Alienvibes W601 Speaker Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Sat, Apr 13 2013 | 8:01A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Alienvibes W601 2.2 speakers from ineo technologies absolutely adhere to audiophile starting points on how to build a good speaker set. Right off the bat, the Alienvibes W601 features all wooden enclosures with piano black plastic trim, satellites with 2 x 3 midrange and 1 tweeter, plus a pair of 5.25 drivers in a vented enclosure handling the lows. The amp built into the sub enclosure pumps out 15w RMS x 2 to the satellites and 50w RMS mono to the subs with an active crossover. The face of the sub enclosure has an easy to use interface for vol/bass/treble/input/mute as well as USB and SD card inputs. Simply insert a USB or SD card with music files and the W601 can play them back with full control plus an EQ with eight factory tuned presets. Dual inputs for RCA and 3.5mm allow for multiple sources to be used, making the W601 a great audio piece for an entertainment center."

Seagate 500GB SSHD Thin Hybrid Drive Review @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Apr 12 2013 | 4:20P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hard drives with solid state cache storage, also known as hybrid drives, have been around for awhile. They are popular with laptop users but until now, those that have equipment designed to work only with 7mm high drives have been out of luck. Seagate`s latest SSHD has been redesigned to a smaller, 7mm form factor as well as improved performance. See how it compares to the previous generation Momentus XT drive."

Frame Rating Dissected: Full Details on Capture-based Graphics Performance Testing
     Fri, Apr 12 2013 | 11:56A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our Frame Rating graphics performance methods have definitely put a different light on the world of GPU performance. By enabling at-the-display evaluation rather than depending solely on the FRAPS reported numbers that dont take into account many other steps of the gaming pipeline, we are able to paint a picture of the smoothness and real-world experiences as the user would see it directly. The system and process is time consuming, costly and harder to interpret but I think you will agree that the results we are seeing here today are well worth the effort."

Sapphire HD 7790 1GB Graphics Card @ Bjorn3D
     Fri, Apr 12 2013 | 9:05A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sapphire is pretty much teh lead partner when it comes to AMD graphics cards. With that it was to no surprise that for this launch the first HD7790 I recieved was from Sapphire. This card is meant to fit into the gap between the 7700 series and the 7800 series much like the new model 7870 based off of the Tahiti LE GPU filled in the space between the 7800 and 7900 series. Now lets see exactly what this card has to offer for the mainstream audience."

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST Review @ Vortez
     Fri, Apr 12 2013 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The GeForce GTX650Ti and the new BOOST version is aimed squarely at those looking to gain a foothold in the gaming market while still keeping a close eye on cost. The GTX650Ti was criticised for not including GPU BOOST (an automatic overclocking feature) in the original concept which, as the new naming suggests, is now included in the refresh. Also included is and improved memory interface, increasing from 128bit to 192bit. The final enhancement of this card is the option of SLI, a key feature missing from the original design."

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