Antec One Gaming Chassis Giveaway and Review! @ Techreaction.net
     Thu, Apr 19 2012 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Antec One gaming chassis brought a lot to the table for a mid-tower with an MSRP of $49.99. The USB 3.0 ports are a great addition to the One which we did not expect with such a low price tag. The different-oriented HDD bay, which only allows installation from the other side panel, is different and does help the aesthetics of the inside of the case. It also helps with wire management too, keeping the HDD wires in the back of the case and not anywhere near the front which would block the flow of air. The dust filters will do a good job with keeping the One decently clean. The tool-free installation for the 5.25? bays is a quick way to swap new devices in and out. * * * * *Giveaway Contest Information* *Link to Blog: http://www.techreaction.net/2012/04/17/antec-one-gaming-chassis-giveaway/* *Link to Forums: http://www.techreaction.net/forums/contests-competitions/8358-antec-one-gaming-chassis-giveaway.html#post37552 *"

HIS Radeon HD7870 IceQ Review - XSReviews
     Thu, Apr 19 2012 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HIS 7870 IceQ, the latest 7870 to come from HIS, it features a custom PCB and cooler. At first look, the card looks huge! At 29.7 cm long it`s longer than even it`s much more powerful brother, the 7970. The combination of a fairly low power 28nm GPU and a massive cooler should make for a very fun graphics card overclocking wise and hopefully, quiet too. A link to the article would be much appreciated."

Fatal1ty 1000W model
     Thu, Apr 19 2012 | 4:01P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Power supplies are one area that OCZ has continued with success, and today we`re looking at the Fatal1ty 1000W unit. Named for the 12-time world champion Johnathan Fatal1ty Wendel, this power supply is of one of OCZ`s latest namesake products. This unit also comes with an 80PLUS Gold rating, but is also entirely geared to gamers that want something a bit more flashy. The Fatal1ty 1000W model is packed with features and appears to be very capable, at least on paper. We know that sheet specs certainly don`t tell the real story though, so let`s take a closer look at this new unit and get it on the bench to check out its performance."

Intel 330 SSD; A New Budget Friendly Drive @ Hardware Canucks
     Thu, Apr 19 2012 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
* *Intel is known for their high end SSDs that throw caution and price points into the wind but their new 330 SSD family (with capacities of 60GB, 120GB and 160GB) is all about combining price and performance. By following in the footsteps of the highly regarded 320-series, it looks to appeal to anyone who hasn`t taken the SSD plunge yet and is looking for next level system responsiveness without spending a fortune. * *"

Intel Preview: Z77 Motherboards Run Well With Linux
     Thu, Apr 19 2012 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel introduced their new Z77 Panther Point chipset earlier this month in advance of the Ivy Bridge processor launch. Questions have begun to pour in how the line-up of Z77 motherboards are working under Linux. Are there any Linux compatibility problems? Here is my brief statement on the matter for now after having already used two Z77 motherboards for a while under Linux."

Blackle vs. Google Monitor Power Consumption Tested
     Thu, Apr 19 2012 | 1:19P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Is the search page, Blackle.com, really an energy efficient alternative to Google? The theory is websites with black background save energy. That claim is based on an assumption that "a given monitor requires more power to display a white (or light) screen than a black (or dark) screen. Is this a blatant green washed marketing ploy, or an earnest energy saving tweak for something we use every day?

To find out, PCSTATS hooked up an Extech Power Analyzer to a 19" CRT and a 19" LCD. One explorer window, set to full screen (1280x1024) was opened to each of the following websites. Blackle's claims appear to hold water, although the difference is just 17.7W and 3.8W for CRT and LCD respectively."

REVIEW: Cooler Master Strom QuickFire Pro @ PureOverclock
     Thu, Apr 19 2012 | 12:45P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I`ll admit right off the bat that I love mechanical keyboards. They harken back to an old school vibe where you could really whack the snot out of the keys without worry, since they`re built like tanks. I just love the clackity feel as well; mushy keys really don`t get me terribly excited, as awkward as that may sound. In any event, we`ve got the latest mechanical keyboard from Cooler Master: the QuickFire Pro. It`s part of their growing Storm lineup that`s geared to gamers, and this board features the vaunted Cherry MX switches. It comes with an extremely attractive price of $80 as well, and a few other nice features to boot."

     Thu, Apr 19 2012 | 12:45P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

SSD NEWS: Renice X3 50mm 240GB mSATA SSD Review
     Thu, Apr 19 2012 | 12:45P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Renice X3 240GB mSATA SSD will be our second review of a high capacity mSATA SSD and follows of our recent review of the Samsung PM830 256GB mSATA SSD. While the Renice is SATA 2, with the Samsung PM830 being SATA 3, its value cannot be understated as it is only the second mSATA SSD that has reached this capacity to date. The Renice X3 is a 240GB `SandForce Driven` mSATA SSD that is only 1/3 the size of a business card and under 6 grams in weight."

MSI GeForce GTX 680 TwinFrozr 2GB Overclocked Video Card Review
     Thu, Apr 19 2012 | 12:12P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As the weeks have gone on we`re going to start to see new variants of the GTX 680 and today we`re looking at one from MSI which is part of the much loved TwinFrozr series. Because it`s part of the TwinFrozr series and we`ve already looked at a pre-overclocked GTX 680, we figured today we`d take the time to manually overclock the MSI GTX 680 TwinFrozr and see what kind of performance we can get out of it via MSI Afterburner. Of course there`s a few things we need to do before we get to the performance side of things and the first is check out the bundle that MSI has going on. Once we`ve done that we`ll take a closer look at the card itself along with its default specifications and what we managed to overclock it to. From there we`ll get into the performance side of things."

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.
