Sapphire Pure Black 990FX Motherboard Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Thu, Jan 05 2012 | 4:18P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sapphire Technologies has come back into the AMD motherboard market with their new Pure Black 990FX. Based on the new 990FX chipset, the Sapphire Pure Black 990FX is feature rich and looks to take advantage of all the new Bulldozer CPU has to offer. The Pure Black 990FX is a full ATX motherboard with incredible expansion possibilities thanks to six PCIe slots which fully support AMD CrossfireX multi-GPU. Tweaking comes courtesy of a UEFI AMI Dual BIOS and included TRIXX software. The Sapphire Pure Black 990FX tackles connectivity with USB 3.0 and 2.0, nine SATA III ports (all backwards compatible and RAID capable), dual Gigabit LAN and on board Bluetooth. Bulldozer?s power requirements are met with an 8 phase PWM design featuring Diamond Chokes and Solid Capacitors.

Raidmax Viper PC Case @ TestFreaks
     Thu, Jan 05 2012 | 11:44A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today for review I?ve got another PC case, it?s the new on from Raidmax called the Viper. These case features three 120mm cooling fans pre-installed, along with tool-less installation for your hard drive and 5.25? bays. The case also features fold out handles on the side panels for easy removal and holes already there for your water cooling setup if that?s what you?re running. The case is a bit small, but it looks good and it?s well made. I?ve put a system into it so read on to see how it worked out?"

RunCore RCP V mSATA T50 SATA III 120GB SSD Review
     Thu, Jan 05 2012 | 11:44A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
RunCore is producing two mSATA SSDs these days, one a SATA II model and the one we are looking at today, a SATA III unit. The RunCore RCP-V-T50 uses a SandForce SF-2281 controller and pairs it with 25nm IMFT MLC flash. At this time there are very few SATA III mSATA ports in production machines, but that will change soon. Intel has already told us that in 2012 at least 60 new ultrabook designs will come to market. Of that sixty, several will feature an mSATA interface and most will support SATA III speeds. Each game that came out featured new graphical abilities, such as colored lighting, shadowing systems, bigger levels, A.I. - the list is virtually endless. Tablets and smartphones have gotten to the point where they are comparable to basic PCs now, with quad-core tablets hitting shelves just before Christmas. Where does this leave the desktop PC gaming market?"

Today we`ve managed to get the Samsung Series 9 ultra-portable laptop to review for you guys. With a very thin and lightweight design, the Samsung Series 9 900X3A laptop is very similar to the Apple MacBook Air. As well as this, some very impressive hardware is also present with a 1.4GHz Intel Core i5-2537M processor and 4GB of RAM. We`re expecting great things from the Samsung Series 9; so let`s take a closer look..."

The state of gaming - What will be the next big push in the world of games?
     Thu, Jan 05 2012 | 10:31A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It`s almost an impossible question. One can deny that the PC market is falling, but the death of PC gaming bell has been rung for quite a while now and with every new console, we hear it again. First, let`s rewind back to the mid-90s. Weren`t those the days? PC gaming was in its A-grade, with gaming developer Gods such as Carmack and Sweeney controlling the two titan gaming engines, Quake and Unreal. With each new title in the respective games series, required a huge bump in graphical power requirements. Each game that came out featured new graphical abilities, such as colored lighting, shadowing systems, bigger levels, A.I. - the list is virtually endless. Tablets and smartphones have gotten to the point where they are comparable to basic PCs now, with quad-core tablets hitting shelves just before Christmas. Where does this leave the desktop PC gaming market?"

Corsair Vengeance 1300 & 1500 Gaming Headsets Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Thu, Jan 05 2012 | 9:36A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Headsets that claim to be made for the gaming market may be a dime a dozen but finding one that performs well and does so at a reasonable price, isn`t all that easy. Corsair`s new analog Vengeance 1300 and USB-based 1500 on the other hand each offer their own unique spin on the affordable headset genre by retailing for under $100 but still seem to provide features that enthusiasts are looking for."

Intel Core i7-3820 Processor Review - Quad-Core Sandy Bridge-E under $300
     Thu, Jan 05 2012 | 9:36A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Those debating between the Core i7-3820 and the Core i7-2700K then have to decide if the added memory support and additional PCIe bandwidth are worth the added cost. If you are a heavy multi-GPU user then that might be the case, otherwise we are kind of at a standstill. Motherboards based on the Z68 platform available now should be able to support Ivy Bridge in the coming months but in truth we don`t expect the processor portion of that upgrade to be particularly noteworthy - only the GPU side of the processor will see significant jumps. On the other hand, Ivy Bridge-E may or may not even actually use the LGA2011 socket, as Intel hasn`t confirmed, though all indicators show that it will."

Lian Li PC-TU200 Case Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Thu, Jan 05 2012 | 9:36A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?I have to say I am a huge fan of small form factor (SFF) cases. Not only because they are small but I am amazed at all of the features they can pack into such a small case. Today?s case is no exception. It fits Mini-ITX and Mini-DTX motherboards, has internal USB 3.0 and eSATA compatibility, a large 140mm intake fan, room for both 3.5-inch and 2.5-inch hard drives, a really cool side panel release system and even a handle on top for easy transportation. The case I?m talking about is the PC-TU200 from Lian Li. Read on as we have the review."

AOC Aire Black E2243FWK LED Monitor Review:
     Thu, Jan 05 2012 | 9:03A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AOC recently introduced the Aire Black LED monitor line. Featuring a razor-thin profile and an attractive glossy-black finish, these new monitors are aimed at business professionals and home users looking for an affordable display that doesn't look cheap.

Posted by: STAFF
Boutique, ultra high-end, desktop and laptop gaming systems are sexy, but they aren't where OEMs make the majority of their money. More modest systems, like the one we'll show you here, drive bulk purchases; today we're reviewing Asus' ET2400IGTS. It's one of the nicer all-in-one systems Asus manufactures and it ships with a number of interesting options...

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.
