AZZA Fusion 3000 Tower Case
     Sat, Feb 04 2012 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Today for review we have the AZZA Fusion 3000, the smaller brother of the Fusion 4000. It is a bit of a misnomer, however, to refer to the Fusion 3000 as a "smaller sibling" considering the daunting size of this 10 slot full-sized tower case. It fits up to an Ultra ATX motherboard with plenty of room for the long, over-sized graphics cards. Let's see how it stacks up to the competition."

Kingston HyperX 2400mhz Review
     Sat, Feb 04 2012 | 12:01P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel’s X79 platform has transformed the high end enthusiast market, with performance levels outside anything that AMD can currently challenge. We have reviewed several memory kits in recent months but today we are looking at the latest HyperX 2400mhz memory 8GB kit from Kingston.

Radeon HD 7950 Overclock Guide
     Sat, Feb 04 2012 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We take a Radeon HD 7950 overclock it the normal way and then voltage tweaked. So that way we will demonstrate not one, but two maximum overclock conditions alongside TDP, heat, noise and performance levels. You will notice that if you go for long lifespan a long-lived card that overclocking the old fashioned way will not disappoint. A good GHz on the GPU (default = 800 MHz) is certainly something you can achieve. However voltage tweaking will bring you towards another level alright, roughly 1150 MHz

This media player looks to be a radical transformation of most normal media players by adding many new features that most media players don?t have. The M400 does support USB 3.0 and 2.0 connections, a 3 TB HDD (sold separately), support for all media files, and True 1080p resolution and HD surround sound. The new and radical features that have been added are; Bit Torrent for torrent downloads, FTP, NAS for network storage ability, and DLNA support. . ."

News - Cooler Master Elite 431 Plus (RC-431P) Mid Tower Case Review at Overclockers Online
     Sat, Feb 04 2012 | 11:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Elite 431 Plus mid tower case Cooler Master wanted to change what a budget case was. Sporting USB 3.0, SATA X-Docking station and side window it certainly delivers on the feature front. An all black interior and a front blue LED fan gives it a sleek and stylish look that should please just about anyone. Toss in some tool free drive bays and you have yourself a budget case that certainly doesn?t feel ?budget?."

Techreaction.net - [Review] Corsair Voyager GT 32GB USB 3.0
     Sat, Feb 04 2012 | 10:02A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall, what can we say that the tests did not show? The Voyager GT outperformed the data Corsair provided, which was a little surprising, but in a good way. We were wondering if Corsair put tentative numbers or low averages of vast amounts of testing as their guaranteed speeds to give a little leeway in their production units. Either way, the Voyager GT does its job and does it very well! * *"

Corsair Performance Series Pro 128GB Solid State Drive Review
     Sat, Feb 04 2012 | 9:44A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Being a larger capacity size we compared the drive to the 240GB drives from Team SandForce products and again the Performance Pro performed well. The one area the 256GB Performance Pro didn`t do so well in, well, let me first say in relation to the SF-2281 controlled drives, is when the drive was filled to 50% capacity. In this very important test the Performance Pro 256GB was a bit slower. So, to sum it up the 256GB Performance Pro was very fast, but not fast enough to take the performance crown in its capacity size group. Today we`re looking at the 128GB model. For me this review started out as another run-and-gun, get it over with because people will want to see it, but I won`t be that impressed type of review. The drive sat on a shelf for a couple of days while I played Battlefield and tried to get over my post CES depression caused mainly by the fact that I can`t get good steak back at home like I can get there. Now that I`ve tested this drive I feel much better, although it would be nice to get some good steak still."

AMD A8-3870K Unlocked Llano APU Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Sat, Feb 04 2012 | 9:39A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Being the newest and highest-end addition to AMD?s A-series APU lineup, not only does the A8-3870K feature the much raved about integrated Radeon HD 6550D, but it comes with fully unlocked multipliers for both the CPU and GPU portions. This ensures that it will be easier than ever to extract every bit of additional performance from this budget-oriented Fusion-based processor. "

SteelSeries World of Warcraft MMO Gaming Mouse Review - Legendary Edition @ Legit Reviews
     Sat, Feb 04 2012 | 9:22A | Gossip | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After playing many hours of World of Warcraft and Star Wars: The Old Republic with the SteelSeries MMO Mouse: Legendary Edition, we were very happy with the thought and effort Blizzard Entertainment and SteelSeries put into this product. The performance was better than any other gaming mouse we have used before. The ability to configure the mouse to our desired specifications was very easy and intuitive..."

Xclio Touch 787 Super Tower Chassis Review
     Sat, Feb 04 2012 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"On top of an improved Touch panel of this chassis, we are also moving up in chassis classes. Here we go from the mid-tower design of the Touch 320, skip right over full towers, and deliver a Super Tower chassis! The optical bays stay tool-less, but this time there is a whole new look at HDD mounting. Similar to what I have seen in press releases from Lian Li, Xclio is the first to deliver such an implementation to me. This puts Xclio in the lead for not only the Touch panel, but now they are the first to bring me this! Xclio really appears to be stepping up the game from the chassis I remember getting even a year ago. I really like to see this sort of progress, even if it isn't for everyone, it shows there are some people with really good ideas and concepts and that Xclio isn't afraid to stand out and deliver new things. Today we are going to be looking at the largest offering of the Touch series of cases, the Touch 787 from Xclio. This case not only offers what I covered already, but the chassis comes with ten 120mm fans with blue LEDs in them to cool and illuminate this chassis. It seems like with the Touch 787 Xclio delivers a case that keeps on giving."

AXIOM EP125 V3 8” 125 Watt Subwoofer Review
     Sat, Feb 04 2012 | 9:01A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Recently, we reviewed the Axiom M3 v2 bookshelf speakers and found them to be great speaker for the price point but bookshelf speakers are only capable of reproducing the higher areas of the sonic spectrum. Bookshelf speaker based audio systems require a subwoofer to produce the lower frequency ranges that the bookshelf speakers cannot accurate reproduce. Axiom produces a subwoofer which is said to be an excellent match sonically for the M3 speakers. Check the review right here.

Antec ONE Preview @ techPowerUp
     Sat, Feb 04 2012 | 8:21A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Antec ONE case has not launched yet, but we had the chance to take an in-depth look at the upcoming entry-level chassis. Will it be able to take the spoiled market by storm, will it be the one for Antec, or will it end up shooting nothing but blanks? While only the retail unit can give a definitive answer, this preview will shed some light on things to come"

Thermaltake SMART 630W Power
     Fri, Feb 03 2012 | 4:03P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A couple of weeks ago, we have taken a look at the Thermaltake SMART 730W power supply. The SMART series is a value oriented line of PSUs designed to be not only budget friendly, but also eco-friendly. But the thing is, not everyone needs 730W. To cater to those who only need a power supply that delivers a moderate amount of juice, what we have here at APH Networks this morning is the 630W version in the same product line. With an extra rated 30W and $5 cheaper than the PC Power & Cooling Silencer Mk III 600W after mail in rebate at press time, how does it step up? Read on to find out!

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
