Sapphire HD 7750 Ultimate @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, Mar 15 2012 | 4:04P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Haven already taken a look at a few HD 7770 cards and even in Crossfire I had a good idea of what to expect when we got our first HD 7750 in. Little did I know Sapphire would throw us for a curve and send their new HD 7750 Ultimate Edition. A few long time readers may remember that we have covered Ultimate Edition cards in the past and they have always ended up being good performing cards that are dead silent and almost always very cool looking cards also with their specially designed full cover heatsinks. Let?s take a look to see what Sapphire did this time with their mid-range performance card with silent performance."

CeBIT 2012 - Impressions and Highlights @ ocaholic
     Thu, Mar 15 2012 | 4:01P | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ocaholics last visit to CeBIT dates back to 2009 but this year we decided to go there again and check out what`s going on in the industry ourselves. During the first two days we were no less then four ocaholics taking pictures of everything we could find in the component halls. If you should have missed this years CeBIT don`t worry, we`ve taken way more than 2000 pictures for you."

ECS A55F-A2 Review @ Vortez
     Thu, Mar 15 2012 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ECS aim to set a standard in performance and reliability while being committed to delivering environmentally friendly products, the A55F-A2 is no exception. Coming in with the now familiar greyscale aesthetic, the A55F-A2, while being ignorant to the synonyms used to market the latest high end products, focuses more on reliability and longevity. The Hudson D2 A.K.A the A55 chipset, targets a more cost conscious audience while offering the flexibility and performance the mainstream user would need, which ultimately translates as missing out on some of the latest and greatest, arguably not entirely important, features, namely USB 3.0 and SATA 6Gb/s."

Enermax Fulmo Mid-Tower Case @ Bjorn3D
     Thu, Mar 15 2012 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Enermax Fulmo model ECA892AG comes with an SATA Dock port, USB3.0 ports, and 5 installed fans, three of which are cool to look at, but can it keep a multi GPU system cool."

NZXT Phantom 410 Crafted Mid tower @ Pro-Clockers
     Thu, Mar 15 2012 | 1:07P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After the commercial success of the original Phantom Crafted tower, NZXT felt they had to grace the public with a smaller version of the case. The Phantom 410 is an abridged version of the bigger brother but scaled down to give the buyer a better value. In the case of this case value does not mean quality was reduced or the features were lessened. The Phantom 410 and its Darth Vader-like front facial come in three different colors: black, white and red."

Patriot Viper Extreme PC3-16000 CL9 1.65 V DDR3 @ techPowerUp
     Thu, Mar 15 2012 | 1:07P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we take a trip back through time, and visit an older product, that just might have more relevance in today`s market than first meets the eye. The Patriot Viper Xtreme PX523G2000ELK kit may appear familiar and for good reason, as they were launched nearly 18 months ago, back on October 19th, 2010. Does this Viper from Patriot still have some bite on the modern X79 platform?"

REVIEW: ASUS Rampage IV Extreme @ PureOverclock
     Thu, Mar 15 2012 | 1:07P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS, known in the industry to manufacture motherboards for a variety of budgets and needs, has released the flagship Republic of Gamers (ROG) Rampage IV Extreme. The Republic of Gamers branding continues the trend of cutting edge engineering, features, and performance. We expect big things from this motherboard, so let`s dive and see what it can do."

NZXT Source 220 Mid-Tower Case Review @Hi Tech Legion
     Thu, Mar 15 2012 | 11:51A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
/ /The NZXT Source 220 is positioned for the budget gamer that expects good features. The Source 220 delivers in spades. For cooling, NZXT has included one 120mm rear exhaust fan and one 140mm top exhaust fan. Both the 5.25 ODD drive bays and the 3.5 HDD drive bays are completely tool free. The Source 220 features a steel mesh for optimal air flow. The front inputs include a single USB 3.0, USB 2.0 port, and 3.5mm audio in/out jacks. The Source 220 leaves room to expand the cooling with 2 front 120mm, 1 top 120mm, and 1 bottom 120mm fan ports. On the interior there are 7 expansion slots and room for a GPU up to 330mm./"

PowerColor PCS+ Radeon HD 7870 GHz OC Edition 2GB Video Card Review
     Thu, Mar 15 2012 | 11:51A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, though, we get to move away from the reference card design and see what`s going on with our first retail HD 7870 in the form of the PowerColor PCS+ HD 7870 GHz OC Edition 2GB. We haven`t seen much from PowerColor in the form of the PCS+ series, but it`s always one that has taken my eye. What`s making these new cooling solutions so much more attractive as well is the fact that the new 28nm GPU on the HD 7000 series runs so cool that the latest coolers are seeing some awesome performance on the new models. We`ve got our fingers crossed that the PCS+ cooler that PowerColor has opted for today follows the trend of strong cooling."

REVIEW: HIS Radeon 7770 GHz Edition @ PureOverclock
     Thu, Mar 15 2012 | 11:51A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We`re looking at the HIS Radeon 7770 GHz Edition. It comes with a price tag of approximately $160; affordable for many, but it`s in for a tough fight in a very competitive segment against the likes of Nvidia`s older but vaunted GTX 460, newer GTX 550, and even AMD`s own 6000 series lineup."

Rosewill Thor V2 White Edition Full Tower Case Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Thu, Mar 15 2012 | 11:51A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We all know Rosewill as Newegg?s house brand. They made all different types of products from cases to network adapters. What?s great about Rosewill is many of their products are very low cost and help you save money when you are building a new system. Today we are taking a look at one of the largest Rosewill products we have ever looked at. The Thor V2 is a Full Tower case that is ready for your gaming system. It supports XL-ATX motherboards, has three 230mm fans and one 140mm fan included, supports long video cards up to 330mm and has room for 8 hard drives! Did we mention we were sent the white version which looks awesome!"

[Part 1] Kingston HyperX DDR3 1600MHZ Dual Channel 8GB Kit @ Techreaction.net
     Thu, Mar 15 2012 | 11:51A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Kingston Technology Company, casually referred to as Kingston by many PC users who are into memory modules, has for years had a reputation for putting out reliable memory modules that last, and won?t break your bank account. You won?t find too many people complaining about this companies? RAM sticks being a waste of money. Well the ones that know what they are talking about at least. Recently Kingston introduced a new line of products dubbed HyperX. Products included within this line are memory kits, and SSD drives. One of the first members of the HyperX line of memory module kits was the 2000Mhz DDR3 6GB Triple Channel Kit released last year. This kit made a big positive impression with many RAM enthusiasts in terms of performance, overclocking ability, and price. Today we get a chance to test the younger brother, if you will, of the 2000Mhz modules, the HyperX 1600Mhz DDR3 8GB Dual Channel kit. Will little bro live up to its older brother?s marks of excellence, or be the offspring mom, and dad tend to leave out in conversations when bragging about their kids."

Gigabyte HD 7770 OC 1 GB @ techPowerUp
     Thu, Mar 15 2012 | 9:31A | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gigabyte`s HD 7770 OC comes with a massive clock improvement over the AMD reference design. Operating at 1100 MHz ensures that the card has a healthy performance advantage over other boards. Memory clock is also increased at 1250 MHz."

MyDigitalSSD 32GB Super Cache mSATA SSD Review
     Thu, Mar 15 2012 | 9:31A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In taking a close look at the need for mSATA SSDs in today`s SSD arena, it just doesn`t really seem clear as to why manufacturers are jumping into the mSATA fold so quickly. We might be able to say that the push to market of mSATA SSDs has become a trend, in fact. Our analysis today will be the MyDigitalSSD Super Cache 32GB mSATA SSD, an SSD that is capable of fulfilling the disk caching role just as easily as if it were in use as a boot drive in systems capable of mSATA support."

Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 Intel X79 LGA2011 Motherboard In-Depth Review
Jul 27 | Motherboards
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.
