Rosewill FUTURE Mid Tower Gaming Case Review @Hi Tech Legion
     Sun, Dec 25 2011 | 2:18P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Rosewill FUTURE Mid Tower Gaming Case offers value for any user. The FUTURE is labeled as a gaming case, however, the price, paired with the features, can be taken advantage of by most of the market. The FUTURE supports both standard ATX and Micro-ATX motherboards. Cooling includes four 120mm fans installed with room to expand. The two front HDD bay intake fans feature blue LEDs for that gaming look. On the front there is room for three 5.25 peripherals with a bracket that can change one of the bays to fit a 3.5 drive, or 2.5 HDD. Inside, there are six internal 3.5 HDD bays. There is also an internal bracket that can fit up to two 2.5 HDDs, if necessary."

Posted by: STAFF
?For artists and hand-writers, the HTC Flyer is a solid tablet thanks to its well-implemented pen-specific features. But if you`re not interested in pen input, Android tablets with Google`s latest tablet-specific Honeycomb OS are a better bet.?"

NZXT HALE82 750 Watt Power Supply @ Pro-Clockers
     Sun, Dec 25 2011 | 11:13A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Many of you many remember back when we reviewed the NZXT HALE90 Gold rated power supply. An awesome modular unit that came in a nice white paint job. The high quality parts as well as the efficiency rating made it a big winner but also made it a bit on the expensive side. Well, NZXT is at it again with a new Bronze rated PSU that should be easier on everyone`s pocket."

Diablotek Fly Mid Tower Case Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Sun, Dec 25 2011 | 9:42A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?Cases are typically composed of aluminum or steel, but today we get to take a look at one of the first cases we?ve seen to have an aluminum-magnesium mix. These two metals create a very lightweight case, weighing in at only 7.7lbs! It also has a unique brushed finish, both inside and out, to make it stand out from the crowd of cases. Read on further to see if fits up to today?s standards."

A Futurelooks News Flash - G.Skill Ripjaws X 8GB 2133 MHz DDR3 Dual Channel Memory Kit Review
     Sun, Dec 25 2011 | 9:12A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
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 kicks out one last review before the holidays. Thanks to all the news posters for all you do! *G.Skill Ripjaws X 8GB 2133 MHz DDR3 Dual Channel Memory Kit Review * People often don?t realize that a PCs are built for a certain purpose. When it comes to the focus of a PC build, the items you tweak are always the graphics, CPU, storage, and memory. For example, a person who needs a PC for audio/video editing will need much more RAM than someone who is building gaming system. If you need more than the now standard 4 GB of RAM, then the G.Skill Ripjaws X DDR3 2133 MHz RAM may just be what you need and they come with a massive frequency boost over the run of the mill 1333 or 1600MHz modules. * * *"

Fractal Array R2 Mini ITX NAS Case @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Dec 25 2011 | 9:11A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I recently took a look at our first Fractal case the Define Mini and I was very impressed. For a new company in the market I was very impressed with both their innovation and simplicity. Even more impressive and important was the price tag! The Define Mini is one of many cases from Fractal and I was very excited when they sent out another case to take a look at. This time a Mini ITX case that is designed to be a home NAS box called the Fractal Array R2. Without an optical drive and with room for lots of hard drives the Array R2 is a good candidate as a case for our event server rebuild."

The ASRock X79 Extreme4-M is a micro ATX motherboard packs a ton of features, more then you`d imagine for a price tag of about $219. Frankly, it looks like a hardcore gamer and/or enthusiast motherboard, able to run multiple graphics cards and featuring impressive auto overclocking results. Not bad for a little board. Let`s dive in and see how well the ASRock Extreme4-M can perform."

Hitachi Touro Mobile Pro 750GB USB 3.0 HDD Review
     Sun, Dec 25 2011 | 1:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The mobile storage market is quite competitive even with raising disk prices from the Thailand flooding. Because of this, Hitachi has taken steps to differentiate themselves from most competitors. We`ve seen several stylish USB 3.0 drives on the market, but we`ve yet to see one that includes cloud based storage. Hitachi`s included 3GB storage can be increased to 250GB by opting into the paid service. Both the free and paid services can be accessed from any IP based device, like your desktop, notebook, tablet or smart phone. This service obviously goes well beyond just mobile storage and moves into the realm of everywhere storage. Hitachi`s Touro Mobile Pro has a single USB 3.0 miniport that can connect to your USB 3.0 or USB 2.0 port. The drive ships with the cable so you don`t have to worry about sourcing one elsewhere. Inside the unit we found a 7,200 RPM Hitachi SATA drive. Two options are available; either 500GB or 750GB. We are testing the larger of the two, the 750GB today."

Enabling and Testing SSD TRIM Support Under Linux @ Techgage
     Sat, Dec 24 2011 | 11:12P | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Owning an SSD that supports TRIM is great, but while Windows users have the benefit of having TRIM enabled for them, Linux users need to take the manual route - at least, at this point in time. In this article, we tackle the simple process of doing so, and also show how to verify that TRIM is indeed working as it should be."

RAGE the PC Game by id Software @ Benchmark Reviews
     Sat, Dec 24 2011 | 9:38P | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At Benchmark reviews, we thought it might be interesting to offer a light hearted article on the new PC version FPS/RPG hybrid game RAGE, from id software, the creators of DOOM. I`ve played a lot of PC games since I started using computers. I`m not saying I`m a gamer, because I`m not. But, I have a good feel for how games have matured since DOOM, which was my first PC game. I`ve been luke warm with the entire genre of FPSs, MMOGs, and RTSs for a long time, with few exceptions. RAGE is one of those exceptions. Aside from video driver troubles early on, RAGE has a lot to offer and seems like a game inside of a game, inside of a game. This isn`t a review, but more of a personal musing on the game itself. So, take off your armor and come on in for some fun..."

Squeaky Wheel: NVIDIA Driver Fixes GTX 560 Ti 2Win and X79 Issue
     Sat, Dec 24 2011 | 4:09P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sometimes we are surprised when big companies listen to the community when they have a legitimate complaint about a product. Late last night NVIDIA passed over a driver that finally fixes the issue we discussed last Friday with the EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2Win dual-GPU graphics card and the new X79 chipset. The issue arose from the inability to actually enable SLI on the card thus leaving one of your GTX 560 Ti`s on the board sitting there limp. And for gamers that pay $500+ for a graphics card, that is just unacceptable."

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.
