Crucial Adrenaline Solid State Cache Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Mon, Apr 16 2012 | 12:11P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Crucial Adrenaline Solid State Cache Review @ HardwareHeaven.com The idea behind the Crucial Adrenaline and Nvelo`s Dataplex software is that we drop in the SSD and use it as a high speed cache which allows our system to perform faster while using an existing mechanical drive for storage. Today we take a look at this solution to find out if it is the ideal solution for those who might not have the budget for a high end/capacity SSD."

News: A closer look at some GeForce GTX 680 features
     Mon, Apr 16 2012 | 9:29A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we first reviewed the GeForce GTX 680, we were in our usual rush to push out an article at the time of the product`s unveiling, after a solid week of poking and prodding Nvidia`s new GPU. We were also attempting some of the more complex analysis of real-time graphics performance we`d ever done, and these things take time to produce. Something had to give. Our choice was to take a mulligan on writing up several of the new hardware and software features built into the GTX 680 and its GK104 graphics processor, with the intention of fixing the oversight later. We figured omitting some stuff and patching it later was pretty fitting for a GPU introduction, anyhow. Well, we`ve been working on writing up those features, and given additional time to describe them, we indulged our penchant for ridiculous detail. The word count shot up like Apple`s stock price, and the result is this article, because there`s no way we`re not totally milking this thing for more readership. Read on for more detail than you probably deserve to have inflicted on you concerning the GeForce GTX 680`s new dynamic clocking scheme, antialiasing capabilities, adaptive vsync, and more."

Corsair 300R Case Review
     Mon, Apr 16 2012 | 1:05A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Testing the 300R I was a little surprised. I expected some high temps but I was actually baffled by the results. I honestly ended up running it an extra hour through after the initial hour of testing. The CPU temp at load was remarkably low. It was the lowest I`ve seen in all the cases I`ve had through this year. Nothing else stood out besides the CPU and chipset temps, and the only explanation I could come up with was the fact that the case is rather small, the front fan is in the middle pushing air right up over the board and CPU and right out the back fan. The idle temps and load temps for everything else were on the high end. An odd channel of air that even caused me to take a second look; if nothing else you`ve got the idle setup for cooling your chipset and CPU at full loads."

Samsung S27A850 LED Ultra HD Monitor - BCCHardware
     Sun, Apr 15 2012 | 4:47P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We are looking at the S27A850 unit that comes in boast WQHD resolution. For those of you not up to date on that particular specification, that means the screen comes in at 2560x1440. It follows a 16:9 aspect ratio instead of the 16:10 aspect ratio of my trusty 30 305T display (2560x1600). This screen has a few other features other than just a nice high resolution and I can honestly say that the screen can go bright enough to light up your entire office. . ."

The Kone[+] will even signal you with a light flash every time it?s chatting with the Isku, so you?ll know when the two are working together. ROCCAT?

SSD News: Samsung 830 Series SATA 3 512GB SSD Review - Amazing Performance and an Unbeatable Toolbox
     Sun, Apr 15 2012 | 1:47P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung`s experience with SSDs didn`t start with the 830 Series SSD. Samsung can rightfully claim to be one of the originators of solid state storage as it is currently known and the 830 is the culmination of that knowledge and experience. Based around a lineup of 27nm Toggle NAND, 256MBs of low power DRAM, and a tri-core ARM controller, the 830 is very much a product of Samsung`s many disciplines."

Enermax KW001 Briskie Keyboard mouse combo review
     Sun, Apr 15 2012 | 11:48A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Keyboard kits come in all sizes, shapes and forms .. and that`s next to a gazillion of manufacturers that offers them. Surprisingly enough a few weeks ago Enermax, the guys behind the best power supplies and the brightest fans also launched a keyboard/mouse combo. Briskie is all about value and as such for 25 USD/EUR you get a mouse and what we think is a very decent wireless RF keyboard. Click here to read the review.

Head-Direct HE-400 Planar Magnetic Headphones @ techPowerUp

Posted by: STAFF
Head-Direct`s latest addition to the HE-line of headphones is the much anticipated HE-400. The HE-400 sells for only $400 which is quite low for a high-end set of planar magnetic headphones. We take them for a spin to see how they compare to both planar magnetic and dynamic headphones"

MAINGEAR Shift System Review - Triple HD 7970s and Sandy Bridge-E
     Sun, Apr 15 2012 | 11:38A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have seen other retail cases with the 90 degree rotation but MAINGEAR was the first system builder to implement it and continues to push forward with innovative updates like the custom built water coolers and the Epic Audio system. The system components are not unique though - that is a problem for all system builders to differentiate - but MAINGEAR is one of the few builders to really find ways to stand out."

Microsoft Visual Studio 11 Preview @ Techgage
     Sun, Apr 15 2012 | 11:35A | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the next version of Visual Studio soon to be upon us, we`re taking a look at what`s worth waiting for. While some animosity exists around certain decisions made by Microsoft, VS11 brings a lot to the table, most notably the addition of a robust environment for creating Metro-based apps."
