SteelSeries Spectrum 7xb Wireless Gaming Headset
     Mon, Aug 22 2011 | 9:03A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"So how did the SteelSeries Spectrum 7xb’s do in the real world? We looked at a number of different ways people would use wireless headsets. We attached the Spectrum 7xb to our home theater, our computer, our Sony PlayStation 3, as well as to our Xbox 360. The overall audio quality was superb. When listening to music we could use the LiveMIX feature to toggle through the various equalizer settings – our preference was “Performance”. In games, both on the Xbox and PS3, we were impressed with the comfort of the Spectrum 7xb and the fit..."

Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 Gen 2 32GB Flash Drive Review
     Mon, Aug 22 2011 | 9:02A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Back in Q2 2011 the marketing team over at Kingston Technology announced that the company had begun shipping its first second generation of USB 3.0 enabled DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 Flash drives. These drives take advantage of the latest USB 3.0 technology that has up to ten times the data transfer rates of the current USB 2.0 specification. The original DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 Flash was rated as having read speeds of up to 80MB/s and a write speeds of up to 60MB/s. This Flash drive was quick, but since it was released in September 2010 speeds of available USB 3.0 host controllers and NAND Flash have improved in terms of performance and pricing. The Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 Gen 2 improves upon the original performance numbers and the new Gen 2 drive series is now rated as having up to 100MB/s read and 80MB/s write speeds..."

Intel Pentium G620 Sandy Bridge 2.6GHz CPU Review
     Mon, Aug 22 2011 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"One thing that we noticed is that the Intel Pentium G620 had the same gaming performance as the Intel Core i3-2120. The Intel Core i3-2120 has a clock frequency of 3.3GHz and Hyper-Threading. With a 700MHz higher clock speed you'd expect the Intel Core i3-2120 to perform better than a Pentium G620, but that was not the case. Both the Intel Pentium G620 and Intel Core i3-2120 were found to have identical performance and that makes sense as both share Intel HD Graphics 2000 GPU's..."

ASUS ROG MARS II 3GB Video Card Preview
     Mon, Aug 22 2011 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The ASUS MARS II is a massive video card that is 13" in length, 6.2" in height and an amazing 2.5" thick. Since it is 2.5-inches in thickness it means that this is a triple slot video card. ASUS has the red and black color scheme going one, which is common with their ROG product line. Looking down from the top of the card you see some branding on it, which is great for those that have a case window. If you buy this card you better have a case window! You can also see the two massive 12cm or 120mm cooling fans. These gigantic fans push more than 600% more air flow than the solution that NVIDIA used on their reference GeForce GTX 590 video card..."

Gigabyte G1.Sniper and GA-X58A-OC: LGA1366 Mainboards
     Sun, Aug 21 2011 | 4:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The terms “gaming mainboard” and “overclocking mainboard” are very popular these days, but they somehow remain pretty vague and unclear. It turned out Gigabyte have their own idea of what the real gaming and overclocking mainboards should be like.

Flash Drives and Controllers: USB 3.0 vs. USB 2.0
     Sun, Aug 21 2011 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The today’s most popular way of moving data around and transferring it from one computer system to another is definitely USB flash drives. However, now that we have gigabytes of data the USB 2.0 speed may become a bottleneck. Will the transition to faster USB 3.0 interface help flash drives resolve this issue and is it justified at this time?

"Who knew Plextor made SSDs? Well they do and they’re sitting pretty with a new SATA III drive. It’s part of the M2 range and is known fully as the Plextor PX-128M2S. There’s plenty of shelf life improving features that are all well and good, but you’re here for the performance numbers. So without furtherado, I present to you my findings."

Quick Sandy Bridge vs. AMD Fusion APU Integrated Graphics Comparison
     Sun, Aug 21 2011 | 12:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The original Level 10 went down well worldwide (and my editor actually used one in his recent M-Power mod – click here for more info), so the Level 10 GT should hopefully be even better! The only complaint that most users had of the original Level 10, was the lack of space – the GT is here to address that."

[Tech ARP] BIOS Option Of The Week - SSE/SSE2 Instructions
     Sun, Aug 21 2011 | 10:20A | BIOS | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meager beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition. Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend. This week, we will be taking a look at the SSE/SSE2 Instructions BIOS setting."

These fans appeal to me in a more acceptable way than for example lime green/white Thermaltake Jing CPU cooler fan does. Perhaps after Jing there could be no surprises for me in terms of fan design.

To introduce us to their hardware, Ineo Technology sent over one of their 2.5" hard drive enclosures. The I-NA215U Plus is a lightweight and compact enclosure that features USB 3.0 connectivity. We will be covering the bare enclosure, but it is worth mentioning that they also offer the enclosure bundled with a 750GB hard drive.

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.
