Antec VP550P 550W PSU Review
     Sat, Mar 03 2012 | 12:01P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Antec have recently released a new range of lower end basic modal power supplies so they are not just targeting high end gamers anymore, but the “average Joe”. The VP550P is a brilliant little model that you might want to think about getting your hands on if you possibly have a small HTCP system running. With a top processor and a highly respectable graphics card the VP550P runs at very high efficiency levels on idle and load. The power supply runs at the same efficiency as a certified 80PLUS product. Brilliant for any “average Joe”. Take a look...

HDD Pricewatch: Three Months Into the Thai Floods
     Sat, Mar 03 2012 | 12:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The hard disk drive supply chain was hit hard late last year when a series of floods struck Thailand. The Asian country accounts for about a quarter of the world's hard drive production. All this resulted in hard drive prices shooting through the roof around the end of October as production became more expensive and limited. With the help of price tracking site Camelegg we've checked on a number of mobile and desktop HDDs to get a better overview of how the situation has developed in the last three months.

ocaholic presents: The Office Spider meets Duke Nukem @ ocaholic
     Sat, Mar 03 2012 | 9:25A | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
During my work I do a lot of testing and benchmarking. Day after day I`m analyzing benchmark results and the furrows on my face keep getting deeper and deeper. Today I decided to do something completely different. For quite a while I`ve had a Lian Li T1 spider case, well packed in a box under my table and I didn`t really know what to do with it. But today was the day to make a very decent office PC out of some components I`ve had here."

OCZ Octane 512 GB Solid State Drive
     Sat, Mar 03 2012 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Among SSDs from OCZ there is one very interesting series of products – Octane built on a unique Indilinx Everest controller. We haven’t yet reviewed drives like that therefore it was particularly interesting to see if Octane would become a worthy competitor to popular SSDs on SandForce and Marvell controllers. Especially since OCZ has recently released a new firmware update for their Octane series, which significantly improves their performance.

MSI Graphics Card Division Interview: Alex Chang Takes our Qs
     Sat, Mar 03 2012 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
What other extra features are you pursuing with the Afterburner utility for overclocking and monitoring? At this time, it?s mostly just ensuring support for the latest GPUs being launched. MSI Afterburner is definitely the best overclocking utility on the market for video cards, and users love the intuitive and simple interface. It should be noted that a recent GPU review on another site used MSI Afterburner to accomplish its impressive 30%+ overclocking feat, simply because the utility provided by that GPU maker did not support overvoltage. Afterburner does everything at no cost!"

QNAP TS-879U-RP NAS Rack Server @ Benchmark Reviews
     Sat, Mar 03 2012 | 9:01A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
How much is too much? For those who tend to answer ...it`s never enough! there is the QNAP TS-879U-RP Turbo NAS. With eight 3.5 drive bays available, there is a potential for 24TB of storage and transfer rates of more than 10 Gb/s. That`s ten times more data than any home PC can pump through its ubiquitous GbE network interface, and twenty times faster than what the latest generation of SSDs can muster. This is for people who have serious data appetites and deep pockets. The cost to fill this unit up with HDDs, in the early days of 2012, is enough to give some people pause; for most business owners, it`s a small and necessary cost."

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.
