Review: Thecus N5200XXX
     Fri, Jan 13 2012 | 9:03A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Thecus has been on a winning streak lately with the introduction of some new products in their lineup. The N4200PRO proved to be a very competitive product and the introduction of the N8900 gave us power hungry enthusiasts with something to salivate over. Although the four bay N4200PRO delivered top notch performance and incorporated a built-in mini UPS, it was still missing something... another drive bay! Enter the Thecus N5200XXX.

Seagate Thunderbolt Technology Solutions @ CES 2012
     Fri, Jan 13 2012 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

This week in Las Vegas, Seagate will also debut the long-awaited GoFlex® Thunderbolt Adapter and the GoFlex Desk Thunderbolt Adapter. Seagate first unveiled working prototypes of these two advanced interface products during the Intel Developers Forum in November of 2011. These two products are the first to use the new Thunderbolt technology for widespread use by consumers for single drive enclosures. The GoFlex Thunderbolt Adapter will be available during the first quarter of this year and the GoFlex Desk Thunderbolt Adapter is expected to be available before the second half of this calendar year.

Game on!

To help demonstrate the speed and performance of the new award-winning Momentus® XT solid-state hybrid hard drive, Seagate will be hosting a gaming demonstration with a head-to-head competition between two identical Alienware™ M18X dual-drive laptop computers. One will be equipped with two of Seagate’s new solid-state hybrid Momentus XT drives, and the other will include 7200RPM 2.5-inch hard disk drives. Visit the Seagate booth (#31846) in the South Hall of Las Vegas Convention Center for an opportunity to win a Momentus XT hybrid drive, which is nearly three times faster than a traditional hard disk drive and has many of the benefits of solid state with much greater capacity at 750GB. Seagate will also host a contest to win one Alienware M11X laptop package valued at over $2000.00. For more details on the Alienware laptop equipped with a Momentus XT drive, and to enter the contest, please visit seagate.com/ces.

Sapphire HD 7970 3GB Review
     Thu, Jan 12 2012 | 12:09P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Reaching 1125Mhz on the core with just a move of a slider required no extra voltage including the power tune voltage that is available in the CCC. Maxing out the memory clocks was just as uneventful with the CCC limit of 1575Mhz in place. These clock speeds show that there is at least 200Mhz of headroom on both the GPU cores and on the GDDR5 memory. Pretty significant upswings on both counts. Without extra voltage needs the temperatures of the GPU stayed consistent. By manually adjusting the fan speed to 100% the load temperature peaked at only 57C when overclocked. I have to say I am looking forward to either BIOS or software utilities to get rid of the limits in the CCC to see where this card will go."

SilverStone Raven RV03 Chassis Review @ OCIA.net
     Thu, Jan 12 2012 | 9:20A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?While we`ve reviewed many SilverStone cases here at OCIA.net, we have yet to get a close look at any of their extreme enthusiast RAVEN series, other than the brief glimpses we`ve had at CES. SilverStone is now in their third release of the popular RAVEN tower, the RV03 which Jakob previewed at CES 2011. It was with great anticipation then when we received the RAVEN 3 for review. From our experience SilverStone has always produced high quality enclosures and the RAVEN looks to be no exception, however what really sets this series apart from other tower designs is the 90° clockwise orientation of the motherboard.?"

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.
