ASUS P9X79 Pro (Intel X79) Motherboard Review
     Mon, Dec 12 2011 | 2:42P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Out of the ASUS boards we`ve looked at which include the ASUS Rampage IV Extreme, the ASUS Sabertooth X79 along with the P9X79 Deluxe we linked to just above as well, the P9X79 Pro is actually the cheapest option out of the four boards we`ve checked out. What does the drop in price mean, though? We`ll find out about the performance soon enough, but the first thing we need to do is look at the package and while we`ve already checked out the box in our original preview, we didn`t get a chance to look at the contents of the box."

EVGA Z68 FTW Motherboard Review @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Dec 12 2011 | 2:13P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One area that we had a pleasure playing with was our overclocking experience with the EVGA Z68 FTW. With only a few minor tweaks in the UEFI BIOS of the EVGA Z68 FTW we were able to bring the Intel Core i7 2600K to a solid 4.8GHz overclock. That`s a solid 1.4 GHz over the stock clock speed of 3.4GHz that the Intel Core i7 2600K comes out of the box with. We were able to boot into Windows 7 64bit at 4.9GHz on the EVGA Z68 FTW but we started pushing the thermal limits on air cooling under full load..."

a post to your own news section would totally be appreciated. If we`re sending our news to the wrong place, we apologize. Just send us a message with the correct address to the address below. Don`t forget that,Futurelooks checks out a hot looking Intel Z68 board from ASRock ... *ASRock Z68 Extreme 7 Gen 3 LGA1155 ATX Motherboard Review** * Sandy Bridge processors and Cougar Point motherboards are the current dual channel standards to beat. In fact, the platform is sailing along so well that it doesn?t show any signs of slowing down and should do so well into next year. About the only thing manufacturers can do is modify the motherboards with some refinements, extra features and dashing good looks. Today, we?re taking the ASRock Z68 Extreme 7 Gen 3 motherboard for a virtual spin. It utilizes the latest Z68 features, will support PCIE 3.0 when the new CPUs and peripherals arrive, has a new enthusiast focused theme and of course the promise of a new computing experience. Let?s have a look at what else the platform offers. * * *"

Gigabyte E350N-USB3 Fusion Mini ITX Motherboard Review
     Mon, Dec 12 2011 | 1:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I had high expectations for this E-350 motherboard, but the benchmark results didn`t give me what I was looking for from this board. The next Fusion APUs will provide better CPU performance as well as graphics and multimedia capabilities to help boost this platform into something consumers will drool over for their next home theater PC."

Getting Educated on the Status of PCI-E 3.0 @ Hardware Secrets
     Mon, Dec 12 2011 | 11:53A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Recently, motherboard manufacturers have been fighting their hardest to differentiate their products from one another in an effort to re-invigorate the stagnant PC business. A lot of this messaging has taken a very aggressive turn, where companies have blatantly called out or attacked competing products for not being the real deal or being up-to-speed."

Mac mini Computer Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Mon, Dec 12 2011 | 11:33A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The latest rendition of the Mac mini has the same stylish look as previous versions, but what`s under the hood has been revamped. Increased power and a new port have been added, while the CD/DVD drive and some software have been removed. We decided to take a look to determine whether this version is a move forward or a step back."

?The Samsung SH100 is a compact, point-and-shoot 14-megapixel digital camera that is cheap in price, but still offers good quality images. It has lots of shooting modes, wireless connectivity as well as a touchscreen display, but the lack of manual controls limits it use.?"

MSI X79A-GD65 (Intel X79) Motherboard Review
     Mon, Dec 12 2011 | 11:19A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The MSI X79A-GD65 isn`t all that new to us, as earlier in the month we did a full preview on it. Today, though, we get to dive a little deeper into the board and cover some of the stuff we couldn`t at the time, including the BIOS and the latest rendition of ClickBIOS II. There`s not a lot more to say about it all really. With our MSI X79A-GD65 in hand and our beloved new Intel i7 3960X, we can get into the performance of the new board fairly quickly. Before we do, though, we`ll just throw up all the pictures of the board from our original preview if you didn`t already look at that, or simply can`t be bothered now. We`ll also cover the few things we couldn`t at launch including the PCIe layout and of course, the BIOS."

[Tech ARP] Western Digital Caviar Green (WD30EZRX) 3 TB Desktop Hard Disk Drive Review Rev. 1.1
     Mon, Dec 12 2011 | 10:55A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Western Digital divides their internal hard drives into three distinct families - the WD Caviar Blue for their basic hard drives, the WD Caviar Green for their quieter, cooler hard drives and the WD Caviar Black for their performance-grade hard drives. According to Western Digital, Caviar Green hard disk drives offer an average power saving of 4-5 watts over their competitors, a feat that they claim is equivalent to reducing CO2 emissions by 13.8 kg per year. Of course, that?s a mere drop in the ocean but if you can help save the environment while you work or play on your computer, why not? Today, we will look at the improved Western Digital Caviar Green 3 TB hard disk drive - the new Western Digital WD30EZRX with Advanced Format Technology and 6 Gbps interface. Let?s find out how well this drive performs! Here are the changes in this update : - Updated the Packaging section with clarification from Western Digital about the HighPoint Rocket 620 controller. - Removed the HighPoint Rocket 620 Controller section. - Updated the Conclusion."

SteelSeries Simraceway S1 Racing Wheel @ LanOC Reviews
     Mon, Dec 12 2011 | 10:08A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For the most part SteelSeries has stuck to a fairly nitch market. Their products are normally mice, keyboard, headsets, and mouse pads. There have been a few products here and there that have broken that mold like their work with Gunner Glasses and a few products that carried over from their purchase of Ideazon. Surprisingly they recently introduced a new steering wheel, the S1. They worked together with Simraceway to enter into the wheel market. I say wheel because unlike every other product on the market, the S1 is simply JUST a wheel. There isn?t a pedal, gear shifter (other than paddle?s), or even mount for the wheel. With just a USB cord and an F1 inspired wheel between you and the game it?s a different solution, but will it work?"

[Tech ARP] Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex 1.5 TB Portable (USB 3.0) Hard Disk Drive Review
     Mon, Dec 12 2011 | 9:41A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex family, you can opt for the Seagate GoFlex Desk 3.5 external drive if you want the large storage capacity possible and do not mind a larger form factor. If you prefer a portable drive, then you can go with either the Seagate GoFlex or Seagate GoFlex Pro 2.5 external drives. The difference between the two is that the Pro version has a dock and comes with premium backup and encryption software. Today, we will be looking at the Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex 1.5 TB portable USB 3.0 hard disk drive. It boasts the following features : - Comes with a super-fast USB 3.0 interface! - Upgradable to FireWire or eSATA interfaces. - Upgradable with a continuous, automatic backup kit. - Able to share files by pairing it with the Seagate GoFlex Net media sharing device. - Docks directly into the Seagate GoFlex TV HD media player. - Option to purchase only the drive (without the cable Now, let`s take a look and see how this portable hard disk drive fares against the competition!"

Samsung NX200 Review @ Tech-Reviews.co.uk
     Mon, Dec 12 2011 | 9:04A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung`s latest entry in to the camera market is the very retro-styled Samsung NX200. Featuring a very sleek and attractive slimline design, as well as some fantastic features, the Samsung NX200 could prove to be one hell of a camera. However, with a retail price of over £500, do the features out-weigh the rather high price tag. Let`s take a closer look and find out..."

G.Skill RipjawsZ PC3-19200 16GB Kit Review
     Mon, Dec 12 2011 | 8:40A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The PC3-19200 kit we`ve got here from G.Skill kind of completes the circle of RAM from the company. Originally at launch we found ourselves looking at a 16GB PC3-17000 kit , after that we checked out something a little lower end and cheaper in the form of a 16GB PC3-14900 kit. Today we kick it up a couple of notches with the PC3-19200 RipjawsZ kit from G.Skill and before we get into the kit, I want to check out the new package that`s present that we`re seeing with some of the higher end G.Skill kits. Looking closer again, we can see exactly what`s going on with the kit. As we`ve already mentioned a few times, we`re dealing with a PC3-19200 kit which translates into a massive 2400MHz DDR which continues to be the highest out of the box speed we`re seeing from companies at the moment for Quad Channel kits. On the timings side of things, they`re pretty relaxed at 11-11-11-31-1T @ 1.65v which is currently the most relaxed 2400MHz DDR kit we`ve seen to date with the other kits we`ve looked at coming in at CL10."

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.
