Posted by: STAFF
In Win once more aims to create a unique chassis with an even more extraordinary approach than the H-Frame, as the D-Frame uses welded aluminum pipes and a die-cast metal core for an unbelievably cool and unique chassis of which only 1000 will ever be sold."

Nvidia has released a suite of tools that allows us to precisely monitor a graphics card`s output to the display, providing new insight on the stuttering that can interrupt smooth gameplay. We`ve used this FCAT suite along with our usual latency-focused metrics to see what monitoring the final stage in the graphics pipeline can tell us about GPU performance in single- and multi-card configs."

AOC D2757Ph review: affordable luxury
     Fri, Apr 05 2013 | 4:01P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Despite the quality and the addition of passive 3D, AOC has managed to keep the price in line with the competition. So if you're looking for an affordable 3D display, this is a very good option. And if you don't have a lot of space on your desk, the small base is another plus. This monitor really doesn't have any major drawbacks, only the contrast is a bit limited, but that's common for IPS displays.

Aoc D2757Ph 3D Monitor @ Rbmods
     Fri, Apr 05 2013 | 11:56A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Looking for a cheap 3D gaming monitor? AOC has made monitors as long or even longer than I have been in the business and they have always made quality products at a lower price. This passive 3D monitor has some nice looking features but will it perform well enough? "

Azio Levetron GH808 USB Gaming Headset Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Fri, Apr 05 2013 | 11:54A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AZiO`s Levetron GH808 is a USB headset designed for gaming. The Levetron GH808 headset is plug-and-play, only requiring USB port on a Windows or Mac OS X system to use. Optional software can be downloaded from AZiO`s website, providing control of the GH808`s features from the desktop. Equipped with 40mm neodymium drivers and an additional 30mm vibration driver, the AZiO Levetron GH808 brings pulse-pounding excitement straight to gamers` ears. Should you need to chat with your online buddies while playing, a unidirectional microphone can be pulled out from the left ear cup. The AZiO GH808 also includes a volume control knob as well as a toggle switch for enabling or disabling the bass enhancement feature."

REVIEW: Mionix Ensis 320 @ PureOverclock
     Fri, Apr 05 2013 | 9:37A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?Today we?re looking at a new gaming surface / mousepad from Mionix, the Ensis 320. It sports a very interesting design, as it has characteristics of both a speed mat and a control mat, and comes in a sleek brushed aluminum finish. Normally we?ve seen hybrid gaming surfaces to be rather disappointing, so let?s take a closer look at the Ensis 320 and see if it can succeed where others have failed.?"

BioShock Infinite Review Leaving the World Awestruck @ Techgage
     Fri, Apr 05 2013 | 9:33A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to games, more often than not, hype is usually a bad thing. It sets expectations unrealistically high and gamers hearts sink to the bottom of the ocean. However, every now and then, a game comes along that not only meets these desires, but exceeds them. Ladies and gentlemen, BioShock Infinite is one such title."

SilverStone Sugo SG09
     Fri, Apr 05 2013 | 9:19A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to Small Form Factor (SFF) computer cases, one of my favorite for the better part of the past decade has been the SilverStone Sugo series. SilverStone generally is always right on with delivering incredible computer enclosures, but their Sugo line-up in particular have been innovative, feature rich, fun to work with, and all around great when it comes to SFF/HTPC builds. Their latest addition to the Sugo family is the SG09, which I`ve been testing at Phoronix."

Posted by: STAFF
PowerColor`s new HD 7790 is a custom design, overclocked implementation of the HD 7790. It uses a dual-fan cooler and comes at $149, so there is no price premium for better cooler or overclock out of the box."

Intel Core i7 4770K gets a price - Haswell surfaces
     Fri, Apr 05 2013 | 9:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Haswell is not due to be launched for another few months, but some online retailers in the Netherlands added the Intel Core i7-4770K, presumably the top model in Intel’s fourth generation of Core processors, to their inventories. This provided us with some early insight in pricing information, though chances are these will drop once the new CPUs actually become available.

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.
