     Sat, Sep 03 2011 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Bitcoin mining is a new form of virtual money. The economics of it are fascinating, but the real interest for us is that you can use your GPU to accelerate the mining process, and you'll be shocked at the difference between NVIDIA and AMD GPU performance. If you want to setup a Bitcoin box, this article will get you moving in the right direction.

E3 Rumors on Next Generation Console Hardware
     Sat, Sep 03 2011 | 9:00A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Guys talk, you hear things. And at this year's E3 HardOCP picked up a lot of information about the upcoming hardware in the next generation consoles. It will be interesting to see if our rumor mill churns up truth or fiction. We wanted to get this out the week after E3, but we had some I's to dot and some T's to cross.

Elgato EyeTV DTT Deluxe TV Tuner Micro-Stick Review
     Fri, Sep 02 2011 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The latest EyeTV DTT Deluxe TV Tuner Micro Stick by Elgato is not only the smallest USB TV Tuner we have ever seen to date but it also offers very good image quality, plenty of features, Windows/MAC compatibility and can also be used with either the two bundled antennas or with an external DTV one.

quality cabling for your rig?
     Fri, Sep 02 2011 | 4:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall, we were very pleased with how well the Bitfenix Alchemy cables covered the wires with the dense sleeving. The sleeving was easy manipulated to route a few different ways, when needed, after we got it installed in the case. With Bitfenix not adding heatshrink to the cables, we think turned into a big plus. After we played around with the wires during the review, the look really grew on us. Now that Bitfenix offers seven different colors, most every modder can find a color to match the scheme of the case he is working on. Have tech news you want to share with our readers?

MSI Z68A-GD65 (G3) Motherboard
     Fri, Sep 02 2011 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"A few months later in May Intel launched an updated Sandy Bridge chipset called Z68 which essentially takes the best features of the P67 and H67 and combines them into one. With a Z68 board, users can overclock the CPU and use the integrated Intel HD graphics. Previously, if you wanted to overclock, you had to buy a P67 board and you had to use a discrete graphics card. If you wanted to use the integrated graphics, you needed an H67 board but then you couldn't overclock the CPU. In addition to these combined features, Z68 also introduces a new feature called Smart Response Technology (SRT) which uses a solid state drive to cache data from a traditional spinning hard drive."

Cooler Master Storm Enforcer Gaming Case Review
     Fri, Sep 02 2011 | 12:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With good cooling performance, a rich feature set, great looks and a roomy and convenient interior, the Cooler Master Storm Enforcer is one of the better mid-tower chassis I've seen in a long time. The interior is highly configurable and easy to work in with cable management aids that really work well."

Genius Slimstar 8000 Wireless Keyboard/Mouse Combo Review
     Fri, Sep 02 2011 | 12:02P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Genius has a solid product with the SlimStar 8000 wireless keyboard/mouse combo. Both devices have a relatively small footprint and will easily fit in most laptop bags. Construction is solid and you can expect reliable performance. It may come in at a cheap price of $25, but it doesn't feel cheap. And at that price, anyone who needs a basic keyboard/mouse to use with a laptop or HTPC can afford it."

Xigmatek Pantheon Computer Case Review
     Fri, Sep 02 2011 | 12:00P | Chipset | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Xigmatek's Pantheon chassis is a really nice case, especially for the money. For around a hundred bucks you get a distinctive look, excellent tool-free solutions and a rich feature set that makes the Pantheon a very good value, even in this crowded pricepoint. The cooling performance is very good, and the case responds well to additional case fans, at least on the side panel."

Crysis 2 DX11 Tessellation & High-Res Texture Pack
     Fri, Sep 02 2011 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Attempting to install the new Crysis 2 1.9 update and added DX11 Tessellation & High-Res Texture Pack felt like anything but a "gift." We give you our first hand experience and a treasure trove of screen shots for good measure. Crysis 2 is a little closer to what it should have been at launch, but certainly the gameplay is still meh.

Enermax has long been a favorite of ours when it comes to power supplies for heavy hitter enthusiasts pushing huge system wattage loads. Today it is launching a new flagship product that comes to up touting a huge 1350 watt usage rating. Does Enermax continue its top shelf legacy?

With the Survivor Core, BitFenix has a very aggressively priced midi tower in its portfolio that comes with quite a number of features. Therefore we're very curious if this thing is able to convice in our review.

ASUS GTX580 MATRIX
     Thu, Sep 01 2011 | 4:03P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"For us enthusiasts out there that budget this kind of money for hardware, the offer is definitely there. You get a premium, hand-picked GPU, a brand new software suite that is full of potential, Clear CMOS-like functionality, hardware monitoring and modding, the cooling to make it happen, and the glorious silence of the huge cooler when you're not tweaking. Not to mention this thing is built like a rock — there's nothing like a premium part actually feeling, you know, premium."

Cooler Master Notepal U Stand
     Thu, Sep 01 2011 | 4:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"While it doesn't have the same cooling power as some of the more powerful ones, it has a lot of features that make it worth using. For instance, the USB hub turns my MacBook Pro's 2 USB ports into 4, and the ability to tilt the cooler means I can really customize how I want it to look. Also, the ability to move the fans around can allow you to get the cooler air exactly where it needs to go to help cool your specific laptop more efficiently."

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
