Asus ENGTX460 GTX 460 Voltage Tweak Review
     Thu, Sep 01 2011 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"So is Asus' ENGTX460 Voltage Tweak Edition still a relevant graphics card solution even today? To be honest, I'd have to say with AMD's and Nvidia's next generation offerings and the competition between the two keeping prices as low as possible, it would be hard to say that this card would be a way to save a couple bucks."

MSI N580GTX Lightning Review
     Thu, Sep 01 2011 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the GTX 580 Lightning, MSI has a graphics card in its portfolio which promises to be extra class. Therefore the card comes with a completely customized TwinFrozerII cooler as well as a PCB that has been redesigned from bottom up. In this case you'll find numerous overclocking features combined with a reasonable noise level. For us this is reason enough to be very curious about the results.

ASUS GTX 550 Ti DirectCU TOP Review
     Thu, Sep 01 2011 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the ENGTX550 Ti DirectCU TOP, ASUS has nVidia's GT500 series sub for less then CHF 200.- (ca. EUR 150.-) in its portfolio. It comes with a redesigned PCB design, the well known and efficient DirectCU cooler and a decent factory overclocking of 75 MHz. Therefore we're curious how this thing will perform in our benchmark parcours.

     Thu, Sep 01 2011 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the M5A99X Evo, ASUS has a motherboard in its portfolio which is based on the very recent AMD 990X chipset. Furthermore it features an attractive pricing and quite a lot of features. There is for example the possibility to connect up to six USB 3.0 drives. This board also features ASUS' very well though EFI BIOS.

ASUS ENGT 440 Review
     Thu, Sep 01 2011 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the ENGT440 ASUS has NVIDIA's low end product in its portfolio that is a bit faster than the GT 440 and comes with ASUS' own PCB design. This card is based on Fermi's architecture which has been fully reworked for the entry level. Nevertheless we're curious how this thing will perform in our benchmark parcours.

ASRock CoreHT-252B HTPC
     Wed, Aug 31 2011 | 4:03P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"If, on the other hand, you want an HTPC that can also act as a desktop replacement, look no further. There's adequate power for rendering of all sorts and the included RAM ought to cover most non-professional needs, but, if more is required, the board does support 8GB. Storage can be upgraded to include another 2.5" storage drive, and the included WD Scorpio Black could easily be replaced with an SSD. If more power is needed, the board will support the Core i7 2720m for more processing power (two more cores and threads!). A Blu-ray drive and wireless 802.11n wireless are included as standard."

Topower 1000W Gold Power Supply
     Wed, Aug 31 2011 | 4:02P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Whilst not the best power supply out there the Topower 1000W is far from the worst but its performance fell a little short of what is expected from high end enthusiast units. The DC voltage load regulation is good but when combined with borderline AC ripple/noise and poorer than expected efficiency it equates to a good but not great power supply. The AC ripple/noise levels were borderline and if measured under different circumstances, lower ambient temperature or slightly lower mains input voltage for example, it may have even scraped a pass but high-end power supplies are expected to be well under the limits set down by the ATX12V V2.2 specification and not borderline."

ECS HDC-I
     Wed, Aug 31 2011 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"In an evermore crowded media center market, it is surprising to see products that still offer unique features and feature sets. The ECS HDC-I is unique because it has nearly all the features you would want in a media motherboard. The most interesting inclusion was that of an integrated Bluetooth dongle. This allows you to use Bluetooth wireless mice or keyboards and allows you to sync with your phone, if you so chose. The Mini PCI-Express is also an uncommon, but definitely welcomed addition."

Mushkin 32GB SDHC
     Wed, Aug 31 2011 | 4:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Quote: "Mushkin includes a carrying case with the card, which is a small but appreciated extra and would certainly come in handy on the go. Keeping the card in its carrying case when not in use ought to make it just a little harder to misplace or have it fall out of a pocket or wallet when reaching for something else. My only gripe with the card is that it doesn't read quite as fast as other cards, although it still does meet class 10 specifications. I will always argue that write speeds are the more important of the two so long as the read speeds aren't horrendously slow, and that stands here."

Creative Labs Sound Blaster Tactic3D Sigma Gaming Headset Review
     Wed, Aug 31 2011 | 12:03P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Creative's THX headsets are widely regarded as some of the best out there, and the Tactic3D Sigma reaffirms that. This offering has everything gamers are looking for in a headset - clear, accurate sound reproduction with THX quality, an adjustable noise-canceling mic, durable construction and a lightweight, comfortable fit. Sound quality is nothing short of amazing over the USB connection, and the option to use standard minijacks with a portable audio player is a nice feature to have."

Cadence 4-Bit Binary Leather Watch Review
     Wed, Aug 31 2011 | 12:02P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Cadence 4-bit binary leather watch has a simplistic look to it, yet manages to seamlessly incorporate binary code onto the watch face. This watch will let your inner geek out so you can express yourself without having to wave that massive geek flag that you know you are hiding inside! Most people will likely not know that this is 4-bit binary, but for those that do it should be a good conversation starter..."

General Electric X500 - what the hell does that describe?
     Wed, Aug 31 2011 | 12:00P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“We’ve reviewed a number of superzoom digital camera in the last few months, all with two things in common: They have long zoom lenses, and they’re all at least $300. General Electric takes a different tack with the 16-megapixel General Electric X500, packing a 15x zoom lens into a $150 package.”

Kingston Triple-Channel KHX2000C9AD3W1K3/6GX Review
     Wed, Aug 31 2011 | 9:03A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Kingston H2O series belong to the most powerful modules which the memory giant actually has in its portfolio. As soon as you take a closer look at the specifications you'll see that they are very serious. According to Kingston these DIMMs need only 1.5 Volt to operate at 2133 MHz with 9-11-9-27 timings.

ASUS ENGT430 Review
     Wed, Aug 31 2011 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the ENGT430 ASUS has NVIDIAs low end GPU in its portfolio. This card is based on NVIDIAs latest Fermi architecture which has been fully overworked for the entry level market segment. Of course the performance isn't as blisteringly fast as with a fully fledged GTX 580 but never the less casual gaming should be very well possible. Another cosequence of the reduced complexity of this chips design is it's low power consumption. Compared to a high-end or even a mid-range product this low-end product needs almost no engery to operate. All these are enough reasons for us to check how well the ASUS ENGT430 performs in our benchmark parcours.

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.

Rating:
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.
