     Wed, Dec 21 2011 | 11:59P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
4.3 billion transistors, a 28nm manufacturing process, 2048 cores, a 384-bit memory bus and 3GB of GDDR5 memory; the new AMD HD 7970 has it all. Based off of the new Southern Islands architecture it represents a leap forward for AMD`s core engineering and is designed from the ground up for DX11 a compute performance. While its specifications page may read like a gamer`s wishlist, the HD 7970 has some big expectations to live up to and some heavy competition to beat.,,,"

REVIEW: BitFenix Merc @ PureOverclock
     Wed, Dec 21 2011 | 10:11P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We`re looking at the latest mid-tower chassis from BitFenix: the Merc. Perhaps the most alluring characteristic though, it the price of the Merc. At only $40, that`s a killer price for a gamer case. We`re cautiously optimistic, based on what we`ve seen from BitFenix before, so let`s take a closer look at the Merc and find out if the successful trend continues.,,,"

ioSafe Rugged Portable Review @ DragonSteelMods
     Wed, Dec 21 2011 | 9:38P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today for review I?ve got one of the toughest and most rugged hard drives on the market today. At least I think it is, or it?s supposed to be according to the specs. The product is the ioSafe Rugged Portable that features a 750gb hard drive in it. The ioSafe is meant to fully protect your data through the roughest conditions you could possibly think of. We?re not talking carrying it in your bag either, this thing can be burnt, dropped, run over, dunked in water, and you data will still be safe. "

Mushkin Redline PC3-17000 16GB Kit Review
     Wed, Dec 21 2011 | 9:31P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Being part of the Redline series, we instantly know that this is aimed as a performance memory kit and we all know that nothing means more performance than a sexy red heatsink. This is the first time I`ve seen the Ridgeback heatsink that Mushkin are using here and I find myself thoroughly impressed with the quality of it. What I like the most is probably the fact that it`s screwed together; these days most heatsinks are simply held in place via some thermal tape on the memory ICs. Instead we can see that Mushkin opt for a much more sturdy option with the screws which helps make for a great feeling kit. On the left hand side we can see that the kit is a PC3-17000 one which means it comes in at 2133MHz DDR. Next to that we have the timings which come in at 9-11-10-28-1T @ 1.65v. CL9 2133MHz DDR memory is fairly common and it seems to be that sweet spot for people who want performance RAM without jumping to 2400MHz DDR which carries with it quite a price hike.,,,"

Have an Android device that`s quickly running out of space due to limited internal memory? Have a large collection of apps that refuse to move over to your SD card? If either of these is true, then you need to know about a simple tweak that can be done to forcibly move over many apps to your SD card - all without rooting.,,,"

Don`t forget that,Futurelooks concludes our look at Antec`s latest and greatest gaming chassis ... *Antec?s Eleven Hundred (1100) Super Mid-Tower Gaming Chassis Reviewed * In our recent hands on video preview of the Antec Eleven Hundred Chassis, we took you through every part of the case. And like many of you, we were impressed with this one a whole lot more than we have with any Antec case that has come out in the last couple years. This case really gets Antec caught up with the pack. Along with the recently released P280, the company has really shown strong focus in building something that maintains the signature elegance of their line, but doesn?t shoe horn today?s necessities as an afterthought.,,,"

NZXT Tempest 210 Case Review @ Neoseeker

Posted by: STAFF
NZXT`s Tempest 210 is a great mid-tower computer case that was designed with the budget system builder in mind. Hit our latest case review to see how well the Tempest 210 stacks up to its bigger brother, the Tempest 410, as well as more expensive offerings from the competition."

Intel Core i5-2405S Processor Review @ APH Networks
     Wed, Dec 21 2011 | 6:45P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
What do you call a processor that is ten months late, uses a lot of power, and overpromises in performance but underdelivers in practice? Now it would be kind of mean to point fingers and name names here, but I promise you it is not Sandy Bridge. Earlier this year, we have reviewed a couple of Intel`s second generation Core CPUs, including the Intel Core i5-2500K and Core i3-2120 -- with both living up to everything every enthusiast raves about over and over again pretty much everywhere you go. It is simply unquestionable that these processors are superior to its predecessors and the competition in almost every way -- whether it is performance, power consumption, bang for your buck, and at least for the enthusiast oriented K-series, overclocking. With that in mind, what we have here at APH Networks this morning is yet another Sandy Bridge core CPU for review. While the Intel Core i5-2405S is not designed for overclocking (It is unfortunate it comes with a locked multiplier and a base clock you can`t play around with), the little `s` at the end of its name means there is one thing that it focuses on: Reduced TDP from 95W to 65W. Actually, before we begin, let me just clarify on one thing first. The difference between the Core i5-2400s and 2405S is the 2405S comes with Intel HD Graphics 3000 rather than 2000. Are we all good? Let`s waste no time for the details."

Thermaltake Chaser MK-I Case Review @Hi Tech Legion
     Wed, Dec 21 2011 | 6:18P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Thermaltake Chaser MK-I happens to be one of those gems. The Chaser MK-I contains features similar to the Level 10 GT, but at half the price. Inside, Thermaltake uses a completely tool free system for the 5.25 and 3.5 drive bays. The cooling system includes a giant 200mm intake and top Colorshift fan, while the rear exhaust is a large 140mm TurboFan. Those fans are connected to the included fan controller, which features a high and low setting. There is enough room to expand and add 7 more fans for extreme cooling. Special features include an adapted BlacX docking station on the top, the ability to use the new USB 3.0 front header for compatible motherboards, and a headset holder connected to the side panel. The Chaser MK-I is completely liquid cooling ready and includes heightened foot stands."

Today we are taking a look at a Kingston SSD disk that I was able to get for quite cheap a few weeks back, my main rig is lacking a SSD so I thought why not do a review on this also? The average price for this Kingston HyperX 120GB SSD is around 230-250$. I was able to pick it up for about 130$ so lets find out what kind of performance we can expect from this drive.,,,"

Rosewill Ranger Mid-Tower Computer Case @ Benchmark Reviews
     Wed, Dec 21 2011 | 4:09P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A couple of months ago Rosewill sent us a full tower case for review, the THOR v2, and today they have sent Benchmark Reviews their new mid-tower case, the Ranger. Rosewill`s Ranger mid-tower case is the latest in Rosewill`s case lineup and enters perhaps the most competitive case class there is. With excellent mid-tower cases to be had for 70-80USD, such as the Cooler Master HAF series and the aging but venerable Storm Scout, among others, any manufacturer entering a case into this class is entering into pure case warfare. Even though Rosewill`s THOR v2 was a knockoff with some Rosewill specific tweaking, it was a good case and I gave it high marks. Let`s see if the Ranger can measures up to its intended market like its big brother did."

[Tech ARP] BIOS Option Of The Week - DRAM Ratio H/W Strap
     Wed, Dec 21 2011 | 4:06P | BIOS | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meager beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition. Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend. This week, we will be taking a look at the DRAM Ratio H/W Strap BIOS setting."

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.
