Posted by: STAFF
“AMD's next generation Llano has hit the streets. Llano is AMD's second step in what we call the trifecta between Zacate and upcoming Bulldozer, giving AMD what looks to be a powerful 1-2-3 punch (at least, so far). Gigabyte has been busy releasing 990 chipset motherboards and recently socket FM-1 motherboards. Today we will take a look at the Gigabyte GA-A75M-UD2H and see what features and test the performance the new kid on the block brings.”

The only options further up the hierarchy are Infinity Editions but for this you will need water-cooling. The AMP2!

Patriot Wildfire 120GB
     Tue, Aug 30 2011 | 4:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Patriot has come to market with a drive that delivers excellent performance characteristics with its combination of Sandforce 2281 controller and 32nm MLC NAND in place of the 25nm delivered on the other 22XX-controlled comparison drives. In much of the testing, the lower-capacity Wildfire delivered performance on par with the 240GB Vertex 3 from OCZ. On paper, the specifications include 555Mb/s read speeds and writes of 520MB/s, along with 4k aligned random write performance of 85,000 IOPs — marks the Wildfire easily delivered. This makes the drive, at times, more than twice as fast as many previous-generation drives controlled by Sandforce 1222 and INDILINX Barefoot controllers — numbers it took previous-generation drives in RAID to achieve."

ASUS Xonar U3 USB Sound Card
     Tue, Aug 30 2011 | 4:02P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"AKG's K701 boasts one of the widest sound stages available out of any set of cans, and with the use of Dolby's tech that wide sound stage becomes so much more. These same technologies that helped Corsair's HS1 USB headset make movies much more enjoyable by making me feel more involved apply here as well, but the largest difference, mostly thanks to the K701s, is that games are incredible to play. Not only can I immerse myself visually in a game world, I can also immerse myself sonically in it. It's great fun and a huge joy that I haven't experienced in some years since I moved away from Creative's offerings with EAX. Had I been able to test the Xonar U3 in person before purchasing, using my K701s, I would have been very compelled to purchase it based solely on its gaming performance."

Server Setup Guide
     Tue, Aug 30 2011 | 4:01P | Beginners Guides | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Hardware is one of the most important items in building a server, regardless of its overall purpose. Without enough power or memory to run the necessary applications, the server would subsequently be useless. Depending on its intended usage, however, the hardware may vary slightly. It is often a good idea to sit down and create a plan beforehand. Personally, I live by a rule of thumb that purchasing more than needed is better than having the server become congested or even fail when it is needed the most. For this guide, I will be putting together two different types of servers. The first will be a gaming server, designed to host multiple instances of LAN-based games. The second will be a file/web server, intended to back up data and make items accessible from any computer in a network. As always, hardware can vary depending on your needs; this is just a general overview of a configuration that I would use, based on the available hardware that I have on hand. Keep in mind that any computer can function as a server as long as the necessary software is installed. Therefore, you may even have old parts that can be reused for your server."

XFX WarPad
     Tue, Aug 30 2011 | 4:00P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"My arm never felt better after a long eight-hour day of constant computing and mouse work. I almost felt as if I had more energy to go home and continue my mouse work in a much needed gaming session. When I arrived home, I was greeted with a small complication. The table I am stuck using as a desk this summer has a rather large lip on it – larger than the rated 2" thickness. Needless to say, the WarPad didn’t fit. For the time being, I laid out the pad to enjoy its humongous size anyway. I cannot say exactly how much it improved my skills, but with great confidence I can claim a lot more head shots simply because I could actually keep my mouse on the pad for a change."

MSI GeForce GTX 560 Ti HAWK review
     Tue, Aug 30 2011 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In this article we'll take the MSI GTX560 Ti HAWK edition for a test spin. In the reference review you guys learned that NVIDIA has nothing to be ashamed of when it comes to the baseline performance of the GTX 560 Ti, the overclocking potential however was also really impressive. The MSI GTX560 Ti HAWK tested today indeed comes all customized and factory overclocked, armed with some military grade components and a robust build the dark PCB will carry a GPU clocked at 950 MHz and its memory at 4200 MHz, both thus a decent chunk faster than the reference clock products.

HIS Radeon 6970 ICEQ Turbo review
     Tue, Aug 30 2011 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
HIS took a blue colored PCB, plastered the R6970 GPU and two Gigs of memory on there along with a new model of the ICEQ cooler. The end result is a product that .. well how do I put it, it's not the best looking graphics card on the market alright, but with advertised cooling performance versus a silent product, a lot of people might be interested in just that.

NVIDIA GTX 590 Dual GF110 Review
     Tue, Aug 30 2011 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few days after AMD launched their insane dual GPU card, it's NVIDIAs turn to show up their dual GPU monster. The GTX590 awaits customers, who do have plenty of pocket money, with two fully-fledged GF110 GPUs which have been underclocked by 165 MHz each. This had to be done in order to keep the dissipation power within a reasonable envelope. Never the less, we're very curious if the GTX 590 is able to outperform the HD 6990.

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.
