Corsair Carbide 300R Case Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Wed, Mar 21 2012 | 4:25P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair Carbide 300R Case Review @ HardwareHeaven.com Corsair realise that not everyone needs, or can afford, a high end chassis and for that reason they have been releasing various models over the past couple of years which target price points below the Obsidian 800D. Each has been impressive and the most recent is the Carbide 300R, Corsairs first sub $90/£60 case, which we have on our test bench today."

The new Cerwin-Vega! XD3
     Wed, Mar 21 2012 | 4:01P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It's not very often that I get to use and enjoy a review item while working on the actual review, but that's exactly what I'm doing as I sit here listening to my favorite music. The new Cerwin-Vega! XD3 Powered Desktop Speakers have been designed to optimize sound quality while keeping the enclosures small and providing easy integration with your PC and other desktop accessories at an affordable price. The XD3 desktop speakers incorporate ¾" silk dome tweeters, 3" woofers, high-quality cross-overs, and a 15W per channel internal amplifier in solid wood (MDF) enclosures.

Synology DiskStation DS412+ 4-bay All-in-1 NAS Server for SMB Users Review
     Wed, Mar 21 2012 | 4:00P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The DiskStation DS412+ is another high performance NAS from Synology which allows a total of 4 HDDs/SSDs to be installed for enough storage space and are cooled properly with the two included 92mm fans, which are also silent during normal operation. On a single LAN connection, the unit maxes out the read/write transfer speeds and the “beast” is really unleashed when used in enterprise environments, with the “Link Aggregation” feature enabled.

Ivy Bridge preview with GIGABYTE
     Wed, Mar 21 2012 | 12:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"We just finished testing the upcoming Intel Core i5 3570k Ivy Bridge processor from Intel and we really thought that's where we'd be leaving it with a look at the upcoming Ivy Bridge series. Literally as we just finished putting the finishing touches on that article, though, the upcoming i7 3770K arrived. With our brand new GIGABYTE Z77X-UD5H already sitting there, it was simply a matter of pulling our Corsair H100 off, sliding the i5 3570k out and installing the new i7 3770k. There's not a whole lot of detail that we need to go into when it comes to the new processor as this is a preview of what to expect and not a full review."

Corsair Carbide 300R Case Review
     Wed, Mar 21 2012 | 12:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The 300R is the latest mid-tower case within Corsair's Carbide series, which is the entry-level case series from this manufacturer. Despite being the most inexpensive case offered by Corsair, it provides good construction quality, supports up to seven fans, and is clearly targeted to the user on a budget who is looking for a good computer case. Let's see what the Carbide 300R has to offer."

Lexmark OfficeEdge Pro5500 Review at Overclockers
     Wed, Mar 21 2012 | 9:03A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I was converted over to the laser printer world for many years and never seriously looked at inkjets since the days of my old HP 840C. With the OfficeEdge Pro5500 I have to seriously consider them again for the work place. The Lexmark OfficeEdge Pro5500 pulls off what many similar laser printers can’t do: consistent fast high quality prints and copies. I managed a respectable 15.8ppm when printing a black text document and 9.38ppm when printing a color text document.

Intel Sandy Bridge Shapes Up On GCC 4.7 Compiler
     Wed, Mar 21 2012 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Back in January I wrote about how open-source compilers are quickly maturing for Intel Sandy Bridge CPUs and offering early support for Intel Ivy Bridge and Intel Haswell processors. Both GCC and LLVM have been quick to take advantage of the new instruction set extensions and other capabilities of these latest -- and very impressive -- Intel processors. With the release of GCC 4.7 quickly approaching, here is an updated set of GNU Compiler Collection Fortran/C/C++ benchmarks from the Intel Core i7 3960X Sandy Bridge Extreme Edition test-bed."

Lumines: Electronic Symphony PlayStation Vita
     Wed, Mar 21 2012 | 9:01A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Lumines: Electronic Symphony also introduces game modes other than the main journey mode. In the journey mode you continue through various themes and soundtracks until you fail. As you reach those songs, they are unlocked for use in other game modes and to say Lumines: Electronic Symphony has a brilliant soundtrack is an understatement. Songs include the brilliant "Played-A-Live by Safri Duo" (which fits the Lumines world incredibly well), "Hey Boy Hey Girl" by the Chemical Brothers and "Yesterday when I was Mad" by the Pet Shop Boys to name just a few.

Posted by: STAFF
The new Apple iPad is finally here and we’ve got the 16GB Wi-Fi version to review for you. The new Apple iPad features the Apple A5X chip, which provides a dual-core processor and quad-core graphics.

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.
