Enabling and Testing SSD TRIM Support Under Linux @ Techgage
     Sat, Dec 24 2011 | 11:12P | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Owning an SSD that supports TRIM is great, but while Windows users have the benefit of having TRIM enabled for them, Linux users need to take the manual route - at least, at this point in time. In this article, we tackle the simple process of doing so, and also show how to verify that TRIM is indeed working as it should be."

RAGE the PC Game by id Software @ Benchmark Reviews
     Sat, Dec 24 2011 | 9:38P | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At Benchmark reviews, we thought it might be interesting to offer a light hearted article on the new PC version FPS/RPG hybrid game RAGE, from id software, the creators of DOOM. I`ve played a lot of PC games since I started using computers. I`m not saying I`m a gamer, because I`m not. But, I have a good feel for how games have matured since DOOM, which was my first PC game. I`ve been luke warm with the entire genre of FPSs, MMOGs, and RTSs for a long time, with few exceptions. RAGE is one of those exceptions. Aside from video driver troubles early on, RAGE has a lot to offer and seems like a game inside of a game, inside of a game. This isn`t a review, but more of a personal musing on the game itself. So, take off your armor and come on in for some fun..."

Squeaky Wheel: NVIDIA Driver Fixes GTX 560 Ti 2Win and X79 Issue
     Sat, Dec 24 2011 | 4:09P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sometimes we are surprised when big companies listen to the community when they have a legitimate complaint about a product. Late last night NVIDIA passed over a driver that finally fixes the issue we discussed last Friday with the EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2Win dual-GPU graphics card and the new X79 chipset. The issue arose from the inability to actually enable SLI on the card thus leaving one of your GTX 560 Ti`s on the board sitting there limp. And for gamers that pay $500+ for a graphics card, that is just unacceptable."

News - Evercool Transformer 3 (HPM-12025) Review at Overclockers Online
     Sat, Dec 24 2011 | 11:13A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Evercool has released a mid-range CPU heat sink that performs exactly the way they intended it to. Equipped with 3 heat pipes running through slim, attractive aluminum fins, cooled by a powerful 2200RPM 120mm fan (with room for an additional 120mm fan), the Transformer 3 nudges dangerously close to the territory of performance heat sinks. It would be very interesting to see how far the Transformer 3 could go with an additional 120mm fan."

SilverStone Grandia Series GD06 HTPC Chassis Review
     Sat, Dec 24 2011 | 9:12A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we have the pleasure of going over another chassis from SilverStone with a fine tooth comb. There have been previous models in the Grandia chassis segment, all designed to deliver an attractive solution to add to your living room or home theater. Over time SilverStone has seen what works and what doesn`t, and in this example, being the current top dog in the lineup, the GD06 has a little bit of everything while doing away with things like a tiny LCD you couldn`t see across the room anyways. Stepping up the cooling inside of the chassis, SilverStone allows for more powerful systems to be properly cooled when we do decide to play our favorite game title on the big screen. Without giving too much of it away up front, I say we move from this right into the specifications so you can wrap your mind around everything found inside and outside of the latest Grandia Series in the GD 06 HTPC chassis."

Ikonik Ra2000 Liquid Full-Tower Chassis Review @ Techgage
     Fri, Dec 23 2011 | 11:12P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Self-contained liquid CPU coolers have become a dime-a-dozen (figuratively, of course), but it`s still not often when we see a chassis released with liquid cooling built-in. We`re taking a look at one such option here, from Ikonik. So let`s see what the Ra2000 Liquid is made off, and see if it deserves its $400 price tag."

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.
