Samsung NP-QX412 Notebook
     Sat, Nov 26 2011 | 5:57P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung`s netbook and notebook line has grown considerably in the last year alone. Their N210 netbook crossed through my hands in early 2010 and displayed itself as a strong contender in the higher end netbook market. Although I don`t look at notebooks very often here, the NP-QX412 performance notebook from Samsung will be on my bench today."

Antec Performance One Series P280 Super Mid Tower Chassis Review
     Sat, Nov 26 2011 | 11:19A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As I sit here contemplating to start this based off of a revision of a previous design angle, or if I take the approach of allowing this chassis to stand on its own merits, I find that both angles are very applicable to what we are going to be having a look at. As the title mentions, essentially we are at what the evolution of what the P180 has become some years later. The external design has definitely been revisited in this new release, but there have been a multitude of changes made internally. Looking at cases that came later in the Performance One series from Antec, the P183 and P193 and their revisions, they were all based off a compartmentalized interior design. So while Antec tried to make it have aesthetic cues that hark back to the classic design that many of you reading this have used, there has been much thought and effort into maximizing what you can get into this chassis, making it easy to do, and deliver limited noise in operation."

Cubitek Tattoo Pro Review at Overclockers Online
     Sat, Nov 26 2011 | 10:18A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A good case that stands out from the rest is not easy to find. The Tattoo Pro promises to be a case that you want to buy at the price you?d be willing to pay. In my mind, that spells value without compromising the fundamentals of a good case design. Let?s see how the Tattoo Pro holds up."

EVGA GTX580 Classified 3072MB Air @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Nov 26 2011 | 9:44A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nvidia?s GTX580 launched close to a year ago yet is still one of the top performing video cards on the market. When you are a manufacture like EVGA, where do you go after you have introduced a full product line around the GTX580? Apparently if left alone, EVGA?s engineers in collaboration with overclockers ?k|ngp|n? and ?TiN?) will turn the GTX580 a monster just begging to be overclocked. With a revamped VRM circuitry with solid-state chokes, dual BIOS?s, and power coming from two 8 pin?s AND a 6pin this could very well be the fastest GTX580 on the market when overclocked. Of course the only way to find out is to read farther into our review."

Enermax NAXN 82+ 550 W Power Supply Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Sat, Nov 26 2011 | 9:19A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Enermax has just expanded their NAXN 82+ series of power supplies with the 80 Plus Bronze certification to include three new models, 450 W, 550 W, and 650 W. (This series also has 750 W and 850 W models.) However, you need to pay attention, as Enermax also has two other series called NAXN, the plain NAXN, also known as Tomahawk II, featuring 350 W, 450 W, and 500 W models, with no 80 Plus certification, and the NAXN 80+, featuring 350 W, 450 W, 500 W, and 600 W models, with the standard 80 Plus certification. To make things more confusing, the 550 W model that we are reviewing is sold as NAXN (and not NAXN 82+). Anyway, let`s see if this new power supply is a good pick."

Sentey GS-6500B Burton Full Tower Case Review @ Bigbruin.com
     Sat, Nov 26 2011 | 9:08A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There is a lot to love about the Sentey GS-6500B Burton Extreme Division full tower case. First off, the build quality is fabulous. The fit and finish are of the same quality, if not slightly better than some of the high-end cases we`ve seen. The chassis is roomy and plenty of the user friendly features are just what we`d expect to see from a premier brand."

AMDs FM1 desktop test board pictured
     Sat, Nov 26 2011 | 7:11A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We`ve seen pictures of the FM1 socket, the FM1 CPUs and even the mobile test board from AMD, but what we have for you today is the first picture of AMD`s FM1 desktop test board. Please keep in mind that this is not an indication of what final production motherboards will look like, nor does it represent a final product by any means, but what it does give us is a glimpse into what AMD`s Fusion motherboards for the FM1 socket will have to offer."

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.
