NZXT Switch 810 Special Edition Case Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Wed, May 16 2012 | 11:59A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NZXT Switch 810 Special Edition Case Review @ HardwareHeaven.com A few months ago we took a look at the latest chassis from NZXT, the Switch 810. It scored well but no case is perfect and since that original launch NZXT have been listening to feedback from end users and reviewers which has resulted in a special edition of the case. With a Gun Metal finish and some revised design aspects the latest 810 aims to provide everything the mainstream and enthusiast user needs and we have one on our test bench today."

Patriot Memory SuperSonic Boost 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review
     Wed, May 16 2012 | 11:59A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Storage media prices regardless of type (hard disk drives, solid state drives and flash drives) have been taking a significant hit during the past 3 weeks and so after giving it some thought we decided that it would be appropriate if we took a look at the latest USB 3.0 flash drives to hit the market from the big players/manufacturers in the market since now seems to be a very good time for such a purchase. However since not every single drive has made it here yet instead of doing a large comparison this time over we will be standalone reviews as they come. So today the first drive we will be testing is the latest SuperSonic Boost 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive by Patriot Memory."

Palit GeForce GTX 680 4GB Jetstream review
     Wed, May 16 2012 | 11:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the Palit GeForce GTX 680 4GB Jetstream edition. Why 4 GB ? Well some of you like to game at extremely high resolutions or have 8xAA as a bare minimum. If a graphics card runs out of graphics memory it`ll starts swapping frames back and forward in that framebuffer which decreases the overall framerate. So today we`ll look at the 4GB model, we`ll specifically place a focus at some tests at 2560x1600 with a good chunk of AA enabled to see what difference the extra 2GB graphics memory will bring us in terms of performance. Check out the review here"

Intel DZ77GA-70K Motherboard Benchmark Tests @ Benchmark Reviews
     Wed, May 16 2012 | 9:38A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I`ve sometimes thought that Intel tries too hard with its enthusiast level motherboards. The Extreme series, which is what Intel seeds reviewers with when new CPUs are introduced, tend to shout with prominent skull logos, POST code readouts, POST sequence LEDs, and other bling, but in my experience they fall down badly on features and performance. So you can understand that I wasn`t expecting too much from the DZ77GA-70K motherboard. But I was in for a surprise."

Verbatim 500GB USB 3.0 Store n Go Portable Hard Drive Review @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, May 16 2012 | 9:32A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Verbatim 500GB USB 3.0 Store `n` Go portable hard drive comes in a small and sleek package, yet manages to pack a significant punch for its size. With the market moving more and more into USB 3.0 it?s good to see drives that are already taking advantage of the technology. The USB 3.0 transfer speeds really managed to surprise me as this hard drive was hitting over 80MB/s on both read and write speeds in the benchmarks we ran..."

Making A Easy-To-Setup $50 Linux Multi-Seat Computer
     Wed, May 16 2012 | 8:11A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While it`s improved a lot recently, in the past setting up a multi-seat computer has been a pain in the ass with a lot of manual configurations needed and other peculiar steps to get the hardware/software combination working right. What if the process were a lot simpler? What if new seats could be added to a computer at a very low cost and the setup was effectively out of the box to the point that it`s truly plug-and-play? Well, we are now effectively at that point on the Linux desktop and there is a new Kickstarter effort to help in that initiative."

Toshiba Qosmio X775-Q7170 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Wed, May 16 2012 | 5:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Toshiba Qosmio X775-Q7170 gaming laptop offers great sound and 30-fps gaming, but we wish it had more horsepower and higher resolution. That makes it a medium-priced option for users seeking medium-speed gaming and medium-high-definition (720p rather than 1080p) video viewing, and we`re only medium enthusiastic about it."

Posted by: STAFF
We`ve released our latest article about the new mobile APUs from AMD, Trinity: `While Intel is currently dominating the high-end processors AMD has been successful on another front with their low power APUs; processors which merges the CPU and GPU.

The goal with this generation of APU`s is to offer more performance, better media capabilities, better game performance and all that while still offer long battery life."

Antec GAME ONE Midi Tower Review
     Tue, May 15 2012 | 5:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The moment many of us have been waiting for the past decade is finally here and so Diablo III by Blizzard is has arrived in its retail form (the beta was good but not quite tweaked). In any case because this was an event unlike most (we did wait for almost a decade) i was hoping i could review something related with it today as i did yesterday with the SteelSeries Diablo III headset but unfortunately since there aren`t that many Diablo III branded peripherals out there yet this just wasn`t possible. Instead today we will be taking a look at one of the latest midi towers to hit the market by Antec, the GAME ONE."

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.
