Posted by: STAFF
I would still recommend these speakers to anyone looking for unique, clear sounding and cost effective speakers. These are not mere generic multimedia speakers and they stand out for sure. If you are looking for foundation movers in terms of bass, you might want something more substantial. . ."

ECS A970M-A Deluxe Motherboard Review
     Fri, Mar 08 2013 | 9:53A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overclocking with the ECS A970M-A is a simple affair. I would mention that without a few features of it`s more expensive 990FX chipset boards, overclocking did require more voltage than it otherwise might. The impressive overclock of 4789MHz did also create quite a bit of heat requiring a heartier cooling solution than you will be able to find in the 35-40$ range. While the A970M-A achieved a very good OC, heavy 24/7 overclockers will probably opt for the added features of the 990FX chipset."

Seagate Constellation ES.3 4TB Enterprise Hard Drive Review @ Techgage
     Fri, Mar 08 2013 | 7:05A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We took a look at both of WDs 4TB hard drive options in the past month, so its a great time to get some Seagate action going. The Constellation ES.3 competes with WDs RE in the enterprise space, but it brings an interesting feature to the table: a 128MB cache. So lets give the the drive a good test and see if it can topple the RE drive we raved over."
