BitFenix Raider Mid-Tower Chassis Review
     Wed, Feb 15 2012 | 3:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Along with a long list of features in the middle of their mission statement, they end with something along the lines of delivering a chassis with top notch performance and quality with unstoppable value. So, it seems we are in for a very feature rich mid-tower with a smoking hot price; at least that is my guess right now. Today we are going to be looking at sleek and simple styling with a SofTouch front and top in the new Raider mid-tower chassis. Well, to be honest, not exactly new to those over the pond, but it is new to the US market. The sub-$100 solution, in both my eyes as well as those of BitFenix, does offer plenty of up to date must haves. On top of that, they have made one of the most ingenious fixes. If I were to give you two native USB 3.0 ports, most users would be in trouble at this point. Instead of adapters, they wired a USB 2.0 connector right into the back of the 3.0 connector just to make life that much simpler! There is plenty more to see in the BitFenix Raider, so tag along as I rattle off the specifications and lay down the price, so we can get to the sleek looking chassis images."

AMD FX-8150 3.60 GHz with Windows Patches @ techPowerUp

Posted by: STAFF
After settling on the market, with all the quirks and bugs supposedly fixed, all the hype and disappointment blown away, we put AMD`s FX-8150 under the scope. Benchmarks are done with and without the Windows 7 hotfix and in depth overclocking should resolve any doubts you have about AMD`s flagship processor."

AMD Radeon HD 7950 3GB CrossFire Review @ Legit Reviews

The AMD Radeon HD 7950 3GB video card costs $449.99 shipped, which is $100 less than the AMD Radeon HD 7970. When you factor that into a CrossFire setup there is a $200 difference and that is a nice chunk of change.

Antec VP450 Power Supply Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Wed, Feb 15 2012 | 11:09A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Basiq power supply series from Antec is targeted to users with serious budget restrictions. The new VP350 and VP450 models are the most entry-level power supplies offered by Antec, as they don`t have a PFC circuit or 80 Plus certification. Let`s see whether the 450 W model, which is sold for only USD 40, is worth considering."

ARCTIC P531 5.1 Headset @ TestFreaks
     Wed, Feb 15 2012 | 11:09A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Headphones are great for gaming and watching movies when you need to be quiet. I?ve got small children and I like to watch movies and play games at night time, late at night, and my kids need to sleep. What I have for review today very much helps me accomplish that and more of course. I?ve got the ARCTIC P531 5.1 Headset for gamers for review today, these feature a USB connection and not actual audio connections which I think makes life easier and. Having the USB connection allows you to just plug it into a front port, but if you don?t have a motherboard equipped with surround sound it doesn?t mater as the P531 headset has a built-in digital sound processor. This headset is for gamers so as you might expect it has a microphone and a lot of padding for comfort so they can be worn for long periods of time. "

7.8GHz AMD LN2 Overclocking at GIGABYTE Extreme OC Workshop
     Wed, Feb 15 2012 | 9:24A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The format is easy - give Australian computer enthusiasts an opportunity to try their hand at extreme overclocking with liquid nitrogen. Applications were taken online at top enthusiast websites within Australia, 16 names were picked at random and they were divided in to four groups and mentored by a member of TeamAU. TeamAU is a group of Australian and New Zealand computer enthusiasts that have taken overclocking to a whole different level. It`s where temperatures of -180 degrees Celsius, crazy voltage modifications and the need for multiple power supplies are common place. The members in attendance were Dinos22 (Dino), Youngpro (James), SniperOz (Carl) and myself Deanzo (Dean). Those who were not lucky enough to make it into the top 16 had the opportunity to come along as a spectator."

A Futurelooks News Flash - GIGABYTE H61M-S2P-B3 LGA1155 Sandy Bridge mATX Motherboard Review

a post to your own news section would totally be appreciated. If we`re sending our news to the wrong place, we apologize. Just send us a message with the correct address to the address below. Don`t forget that,Futurelooks checks out a board for up-graders dragging lots of legacy stuff around ... * * *GIGABYTE H61M-S2P-B3 LGA1155 Sandy Bridge mATX Motherboard Review* * * One question I often hear is what brand and model motherboard would I recommend for someone looking to spend the least amount of money to upgrade. The answer always comes down to the user?s particular purpose and peripherals needed to fill that purpose. A basic assumption users make is that they have to buy a model motherboard somewhere in the middle just short of the flagship to get the most out of the processor or peripherals. But that?s not always the case. For example, this entry level micro-ATX motherboard from GIGABYTE called the H61M-UD2-B3 offers the same advanced Sandy Bridge performance features as premium boards, but costs well under $100. Let?s see what it can do! *"

Posted by: STAFF
MEGATechNews finds a better way to make console gaming videos ... *MEGATech Reviews ? AVerMedia Game Capture HD for PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii* If you?re a fan of video games, then you?ve surely seen the never-ending barrage of gameplay videos posted on places like YouTube. You?ve likely also seen people set up their camera phones to record their televisions, resulting in something that is far from desirable. There has to be a better way. And there is, but up until now, many of the most conventional solutions involved using a computer as an intermediary."

HornetTek Enterprise 4X @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Feb 15 2012 | 9:21A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this month Star Trek: Online went the Free To Play model, meaning anyone can have their own starship and participate in one of the best science fiction franchises of all time! Why is that significant to this article? It is significant because I am a Trekkie. I openly admit it. When HornetTek contacted us to do some reviews on their products, this product definitely caught my eye for two reasons. One, I like hard drive enclosures and external storage solutions. Two, it is named Enterprise. There is even a glimpse of the good `ole 1701 on HornetTek`s website. The question is; is the HornetTek Enterprise 4X an enterprise-level device that performs like the Federation flagship would, or is it just as useful as a self-sealing stem bolt? Read on to find out!"

     Wed, Feb 15 2012 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI joins in on the Radeon HD 7770 release with their own custom model. They use their own custom 4-layer PCB and equipped it with a dual slot - dual fan cooler. The end result is the R7770 2PMD1GD5, we test the OC edition model. Over the next few pages we'll walk through three standard reference technology and then place our focus on the R7770 2PMD1GD5 OC. But not before you have had a peek alright.

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.
