HP ProBook 6360b Notebook Review
     Fri, Jun 24 2011 | 12:01P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ProBook 6360b is the latest addition to HP’s “b” series notebooks and their first in a 13.3” form factor. It's tailored for business professionals with a robust software suite including HP ProtectTools, Power Assistant and QuickWeb. Users will also appreciate the secure display latch, extended life battery options and docking station capabilities. Our ProBook evaluation unit shipped with Intel’s Core i5-2410M, a 2.30 GHz Sandy Bridge processor that is capable of Turbo Boosting up to 2.90 GHz when needed. Much like the i5-2520M in the ThinkPad X1 we tested recently, this CPU features four processing threads and Intel HD 3000 Graphics with a max TDP of 35W. Compared to Lenovo's X1, the ProBook 6360b has very similar display specifications, a slightly slower processor, identical graphics and the same amount of memory and hard drive space. But that's where the similarities end. The ProBook is admittedly plain and hefty while the X1 is a slim system which more of a consumer-designed look and feel.

AMD Catalyst 11.6 Windows 7 Driver Analysis
     Fri, Jun 24 2011 | 12:00P | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As we roll into the halfway mark for 2011, we see the latest iterations of the Catalyst drivers from AMD come in the form of the Catalyst 11.6. A little earlier than expected, the latest drivers seem to bring some nice features to the table as well as some promises of extra performance. With a fair bit on offer from the latest drivers, we won't spend any more time blabbing on about them and instead we'll just get into some of the highlights from the release notes; then we'll take a quick look at our testbed and check out the performance of the latest drivers."

Gigabyte 990 FXA-UD7 review
     Fri, Jun 24 2011 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Man, look at what we are reviewing today, it is the 990FXA-UD7 from Gigabyte, recently they kicked out the baby blue color schema and went all black. This motherboards seriously has to be the most breathtaking thing to look at ever, from Gigabyte that is. AMD completely released the 990FX chipset in the wrong time, it should have been released alongside the Bulldozer FX series processors. But ah well, what can you do .. have a peek at that crazy sexy looking UD7 and then let's head onwards into our review.

Synology DiskStation DS1511+
     Fri, Jun 24 2011 | 9:01A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Given that the Synology DiskStation DS1511+ is essentially a more powerful version of the recently reviewed DS411+ we expected good things and that is exactly what we got. As anticipated, the DS1511+ is a great quality NAS device that we can highly recommend to anyone looking at a five bay NAS device, with the possibility to expand up to ten more bays.

Chillblast Fusion Impact 3D Full System
     Thu, Jun 23 2011 | 4:03P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Chillblast may not be as well renowned – or as infamous – as Overclockers or Scan, but they’ve been around the block enough to know the game and they’re well established as a solid, affordable gaming system builder. Today we take a look at another of their setups, this one that provides the full 3D experience: monitor, glasses and GPU. It’s got a Sandybridge i5 CPU too."

     Thu, Jun 23 2011 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With a price tag of just $100, the Sapphire HD 6750 is a low to mid-range video card offering performance on a budget. Time to stress and strip the card to see how it compares to two of its bigger brothers."

Gskill Sniper 12GB X58 ram kit Review
     Thu, Jun 23 2011 | 4:01P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At the latest CeBIT 2011, GSkill announced their new Gamer Orientated Sniper series. Sporting a heatspreader that looks like a firearm. Coincidence or not, Gigabyte chose a sortlike military makeover for their new X58 G1 series motherboards. Even though main focus lately is on socket 1155, it is nice to see some new products too for the aging socket 1366. Todays reviewed kit is Gskills high end and high capacity 1600Mhz CL7 12GBkit. Consisting out of a triple 4GB dimm kit. Rated to run at a nice C7-8-7-24 SPD timings.

Duke Nukem Forever (PC) Review
     Thu, Jun 23 2011 | 12:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Let’s just address the pink elephant in the room. No one can think of Duke Nukem Forever without bringing up the extremely long development cycle. Yes, the game has had more than its fair share of drama, and has been in development for over 12 years. Due to the extremely long development time, gamers (and reviewers) believe that this game should be the most polished thing ever, with streamlined gameplay and unrivaled level design that should win awards for years to come. This is just unrealistic. We will be reviewing the PC version of Duke Nukem Forever, but we will not be judging it based on what we think we should see, but will base the review on the game’s own merits (or lack thereof).

Fractal Design Core 3000 review
     Thu, Jun 23 2011 | 12:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Fractal Design released the Core 3000, an all black, quite stylish mid-tower chassis. This ATX, Micro-ATX, Mini-ITX ready tower chassis can house a pair of external 5.25-inch drive bays, for ODDs (optical disk drives) or anything else that uses that form factor of course. Then on the inside Fractal Design made sure you can house a lot of internal 3.5-inch HDDs as the bays allow six of them to be installed with the top bay being removable, which will allow you to use long graphics cards.

Thermaltake's Armor A90 mid-tower case
     Thu, Jun 23 2011 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Up front, the 5.25? and 3.5? drive bays are protected by a very solid door. The bottom-front houses a 120mm intake fan, which will help cool your drives while bringing in fresh air to the system. The side panel includes a small window, offering just a sneak peek as to what’s inside. There is an optional 120mm fan spot as well on the side, if you decide you need more direct fresh-air cooling for your video cards, chipset, or CPU.

Intel SSD 320 Series 160 GB Review
     Thu, Jun 23 2011 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Most solid state drive (SSD) manufacturers make their drives with a standard set of capacities with the most popular being 64 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB. Intel is the exception to this rule, as they produce their SSDs in more varied capacities from 40 GB to 600 GB. Today we are going to look at a 320 Series 160 GB SSD from Intel which will give you a little more space than the 128 GB drives that most manufacturers offer."

OCZ Agility 3 240GB SSD
     Thu, Jun 23 2011 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
" ..The OCZ Agility 3 SSD offers an incredible throughput, it excels in IOPs performance and in fact remains close to it's bigger brother the Vertex 3. For typical desktop workloads, the Agility 3 is cheaper than the Vertex 3 and it should do the job for you. If you start mixing in data that's not easily compressed by the SandForce controller, the Agility will not offer the write/read speeds quoted by OCZ ..."

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.
