Racing like a pro: five affordable PC racing wheels tested
     Mon, Sep 02 2013 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Playing a racing game on your desktop PC is so much more fun when you use an actual steering wheel. Anyone who's played a racing game with a keyboard or gamepad and then an actual steering wheel with gas and brake pedals, can testify to this. Hardware.Info tested five relatively affordable mid-range racing wheels that are currently available, including products from Logitech, Speed-Link, SteelSeries and Thrustmaster.

ASUS has released the amazingly compact GTX 670 DirectCU MINI to cater to the small form factor market. It isn't narrowly focused though since we found it to be a surprisingly capable graphics card.

Saints Row IV
     Mon, Sep 02 2013 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”In prior Saints Row games, you were a gang leader trying to dominate the city you are in by crushing other gangs. In Saints Row IV though, you are the President of the United States, and instead of having multiple gangs to face, you just have the alien Zin Empire to defeat. When the empire invaded Earth, they took you and other members of the Saints gang prisoner, trapping them within simulations meant to break their will. Of course your response is to break the simulation, which does not go over particularly well with Emperor Zinyak. In response he throws you into a new prison, modeled after Steelport, but he makes multiple changes to demonstrate his dominance over the simulation. With a computer genius like Kinzie Kensington on your side though, the simulation becomes less a prison and more a playground as you acquire superpowers (super user powers?).”

ECS L337 GANK Machine Z87H3-A2X Extreme Review
     Mon, Sep 02 2013 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The second BIOS I used fixed the override voltage setting problem and allowed my to finally tune the voltage to get to the 4.7GHz clock speed my chip is capable of. Setting the memory timings manually would result in a failed post attempt across both of the BIOS I have tested so far. Using the XMP profile for my memory proved to be the best option for me with this board from ECS. Although it sounds bad out of the gate, it`s still a good start for the board and the next BIOS update should iron out any other issues. When using the BIOS it is a step forward from last year`s UEFI BIOS implementations with the interface working as intended."

     Mon, Sep 02 2013 | 8:08A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
T-Topology on nearly every Z78 motherboard makes filling all four of your motherboard`s memory slots an interesting option. G.Skill`s new G.Skill F3-2133C9Q-16GXL kit uses four sticks, comes in red, and has great heatsink compatibility, but does using single-sided sticks hurt performance?"

PC Power & Cooling Silencer Mk III 750W PSU - BCCHardware
     Mon, Sep 02 2013 | 6:19A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall, I`m very impressed with the PC Power & Cooling Silencer Mk III 750W PSU. It does exactly what they claim and it does it quietly and is stable. The modular connectors are nifty and while they don`t offer a lot of value, they do offer a good amount of curb appeal. I`m a fan. If you need a new PSU and have $130 (at time of publication), the Mk III series from PC Power & Cooling is a great choice. Even if you have multiple video cards on a fast Core i7 system, this PSU has enough power to deliver in most situations. . ."
