HP ENVY 6 Sleekbook Review; AMDs Mobile Trinity APU Arrives @ Hardware Canucks
     Tue, Nov 20 2012 | 11:57P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today`s slim and light notebooks typically hit the $1000 mark, making them all but unattainable for anyone on a strict budget. Now, HP has teamed up with AMD and their Trinity APU to create the Envy 6 lineup of Sleekbooks. These ultra portable notebooks start at just $699 yet seem to feature everything we could possibly want."

Icy Dock MB153SP-B FatCage 3-in-2 SATA Backplane Module @ Hi Tech Legion
     Tue, Nov 20 2012 | 11:07P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Icy Dock FatCage MB153SP-B is a 3-in-2 internal SATA HDD cage that was designed to save space inside a chassis. The Icy Dock FatCage 3-in-2 SATA device is also designed to save time through a simplified mounting mechanism which is interchangeable with ten other Icy Dock internal and external storage items. To keep temperature levels optimal, Icy Dock has outfitted the FatCage series backplane modules with an 80mm cooling fan which actively cools the drives inside. The durable metal frame of the MB153SP FatCage is not only designed for durability, it also dissipates the heat emitted by the drives installed. The Icy Dock MB153SP FatCage only requires two 15-pin SATA power connectors to fully operate three drives and the active cooling fan, saving overall power. For those worried about thermal conditions, especially when installing inside compared to typical HDD cages."

[DreamWare Computers] SilverStone ST55F-G 550W 80PLUS Gold Power Supply
     Tue, Nov 20 2012 | 7:41P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Looking to reach the users who need lower wattage models, which is starting to account for a lot of PC builders as our components become more and more energy efficient, Silverstone has recently revamped their Strider Gold lineup, which previously only had a 1000W model, to now include 550W and 650W models. On my bench here today I have the 550W ST55F-G model."

A Futurelooks News Flash - Patriot Memory Gauntlet Node and Node 320 Portable Wireless Enclosures Reviewed
     Tue, Nov 20 2012 | 7:25P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Patriot Memory Gauntlet Node and Node 320 Portable Wireless Enclosures Reviewed* There are so many portable devices out there from smartphones to tablets. One limitation that many of us are starting to run into, even with the limitless expansion of the cloud is physical storage space for our photos, cat videos and files. But what do you do when you continually have files so large, that space continues to be an issue? Or, more simply to the point, what if you just like keeping files on something else but would like a simple way to access them without having to suck up the data on your wireless plan through the cloud?

News: Enter to win a Radeon HD 7770 CrossFire team and game bundle
     Tue, Nov 20 2012 | 4:28P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Well, this should be fun. The folks at AMD offered us some Radeon video cards and games to give away to TR readers. Naturally, we jumped at the chance. We`ll have several sets of cards and games to give away over the next few weeks, if all goes as planned. Up first is a pair of Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 1GB cards made by HIS, along with copies of Far Cry 3 and Hitman: Absolution. "

ASUS GeForce GTX 660 DirectCU II Top OC Edition Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Tue, Nov 20 2012 | 4:07P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS GeForce GTX 660 DirectCU TOP graphics card pushes the boost clock speed from the reference speed of 1033 MHz to 1085 MHz. The ASUS GTX 660 utilizes the Nvidia GK106 GPU core and features 2GB of GDDR5 memory. Memory is clocked at 6008 MHz effectively and supported by three memory controllers creating a 192-bit memory bus. The GK106 core features five SMX units housing a total of 960 CUDA cores and 80 texture units. ASUS further refines the GTX 660 by applying a custom cooling solution, utilizing direct contact copper heatpipes to dissipate heat more efficiently. On top of the custom cooling solution is the DIGI VRM+ power design that ASUS uses with their cards, providing better voltage control and stability."

Corsair Carbide 200R Case Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Tue, Nov 20 2012 | 4:07P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 200R is the latest addition to Corsair`s Carbide series of cases, and it is targeted to users who don`t want to spend a lot of money on a case but still want to take home a good-quality product with a decent set of features. Let`s see if this case fulfills its goals."

Corsair Carbide 200R review
     Tue, Nov 20 2012 | 4:07P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,The new budget chassis in the Carbide series of PC cases from Corsair would be the 200R, Corsair markets the product being entry-level, and with a 60 USD pricetag, we can not argue on that. These chassis remain to be good looking but really are feature rich products. Keywords here would be a nice design chassis, tool free, lots of of space, nice airflow and even prepped for liquid cooling."

Crucial Ballistix Tactical 1600 MHz
     Tue, Nov 20 2012 | 4:07P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Crucial Ballistix Tactical Low Profile 16 GB CL8 DDR3 1600 Memory arrived Technic3D. Technic3D will see as good they are on Windows 7 64 Bit and the Intel DX79SI Extreme Series Mainboard. You can see 2.240 MHz (1,5V) with 10-10-10-28 (2T) and more in the following Review."

Crucial Ballistix Tactical LP DDR3-1600 16GB Kit - BCCHardware
     Tue, Nov 20 2012 | 4:07P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Ballistix Tactical is definitely a low profile design, but the heat spreaders look like they can definitely help dissipate any excess heat. This coupled with the lower voltage used in default and XMP1 modes makes cooling a breeze. They also feel pretty high quality. The heat spreaders are aluminum with cutouts to create more surface area. . ."

Duke Nukem 3D HRP: The Classic Only Better @ Techgage
     Tue, Nov 20 2012 | 4:07P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Despite having been a huge DN3D fan since its release in 1996, its taken me this long to give the fan-made HRP (High Resolution Pack) a try. It takes the games classic graphics and gameplay elements and puts them in overdrive. The result? A cleaner, high-res game that feels more natural than the original."

Enermax Hoplite ST Mid-Tower Chassis Review

Enermax is back again in the labs with its Hoplite ST Mid-Tower case. It might have wished it never entered."

OCZ Vertex 3 Low Profile 7mm SATA III 240GB SSD - BCCHardware
     Tue, Nov 20 2012 | 1:30P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are planning on purchasing a new machine that only takes 7mm drives, you can see our review of the OCZ Vertex 3 LP that you won`t have to sacrifice performance. The Vertex 3 LP 240GB drive holds up very well to the competition and is essentially a slimmer version of the Vertex 3 - both in terms of controller and performance - even though OCZ has made the jump from Intel to Micron NAND is this drive. . ."
