Crucial Ballistix Sport Low Profile DDR3-1600 16GB Memory Kit Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Fri, Dec 21 2012 | 9:14A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Not that long ago we took a look at Crucials Ballistix Tactical Low Profile memory. Today we are checking out the Ballistix Sport Low Profile memory. Both of these memory kits solve the dilemma of an aftermarket CPU cooler covering up your memory slots. This kit is a low profile kit meaning it is going to fit below most aftermarket CPU coolers and be out of the way. There are not that many choices when it comes to low profile memory so that fact that Crucial is offering their Ballistix line in low profile versions is great. The memory we are taking a look at today is the 16GB (8GB x 2) kit running with timings of 9-9-9-24 at 1.35v (BLS2K8G3D1609ES2LX0). Read on as we check out this memory!"

F1 Race Stars Review @ Techgage
     Fri, Dec 21 2012 | 9:14A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With its F1 and DiRT games, Codemasters has established itself as being one of the better developers out there where racing titles are concerned. But while those games feature realistic environments, vehicles and driving mechanics, F1 Race Stars throws all that out the window to offer a colorful and very interesting kart racer. Lets check it out."

Fractal Design Integra R2 750 W @ techPowerUp
     Fri, Dec 21 2012 | 9:14A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Fractal Design is making a strong re-entry into the PSU market, and their fresh Integra R2 series addresses the budget-oriented users. In this review, we will evaluate the strongest Integra R2 unit; it manages to combine enough power with compact dimensions, since its length is restricted to 140 mm, so it will fit into an extra-small chassis."

Corsair Carbide Series 200R Compact Mid-Tower Chassis Review

Corsair has delivered another of the Carbide series. Have a look at the more compact, but still feature-rich 200R case."

Corsair Hydro Series H55 Quiet Liquid Cooler Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Thu, Dec 20 2012 | 9:05A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I, myself have been using an AIO kit since I saw how much cleaner a rig looks with one compared to typical heat sinks. Corsair has released several AIO units in the past few years which would include the H40, H50, H60, H70, H80 and H100. Each has served many well but there is a time when technology advantages and change come. The H55 is the new kid on the block and looking to take the place of the H50 as the quiet cooler. One that someone would purchase to replace the stocker that comes in the box with your CPU."

Corsair Neutron GTX 120GB SSD Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Thu, Dec 20 2012 | 9:05A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Equipped with Link-A Media Device`s latest controller, the Corsair Neutron GTX 120GB comes in poised to take on not only the competition, but many larger drives as well. The Corsair GTX 120GB SSD doesn`t shy away from incompressible data like many other drives, and keeps its speeds regardless of data type. The speeds of the Neutron GTX 120GB are not shy, either, with 550MB/s read and 330MB/s write. IOPS permance is over 80k at 4k aligned, with no degredation due to data type. To take advantage of the performance, the Neutron GTX 120GB uses a SATA 6.0Gb/s interface and is backwars compatible to SATA I and SATA II. For ultrabook users the Neutron GTX fits into the new 7mm form factor while still offering enthusiast class performance. Corsair backs the Neutron GTX 120GB SSD with a five year warranty."

Corsair Vengeance 2000 Wireless 7.1 Gaming Headset Review @ TechwareLabs
     Thu, Dec 20 2012 | 9:05A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Looking to take your PC gaming to the next level? Trying to find a way to crank up the sound without imposing on your neighbors or loved ones? Looking for the extra level of immersion into your current PC game of choice? Then youre probably in the market for a quality headset for your PC. For many years I was resistant about using a headset and honestly only used one with for communicating with my friends while gaming. However, recent changes in my life (becoming a father) have forced my hand into looking for a headset that can offer me voice and a comparable (or better) surround sound experience to my 5.1 setup. Needless to say, when Corsair sent us their Vengeance 2000 Wireless 7.1 Gaming Headset to review, I eagerly jumped at the opportunity."

Review: Crucial Ballistix Sport VLP 2x8GB DDR3-1600MHz CL9 1.35v @ Ocaholic
     Wed, Dec 19 2012 | 12:40P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
About four months ago, we reviewed no less then four Crucial DDR3-1866 as wells as DDR3-1600 memory kits and we noticed that all of them share the same, highly overclockable Micron ICs. This got us thinking whether or not it is possible to have a similar experience using their brand new Ballistix Sport VLP modules, which hit the market something like a month ago."

Inside the Macintosh 512K @ Hardware Secrets
     Wed, Dec 19 2012 | 11:06A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Following the release of the original Macintosh in 1984, Apple released the Macintosh 512K in 1985. The main difference between the two was the increase in RAM to 512 kB. The original Macintosh had 128 kB and started to be called the 128K after plans to release the 512K were revealed."

Crucial Ballistix Sport VLP 1600MHz 16GB Kit Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Wed, Dec 19 2012 | 11:06A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This problem could be rectified simply by journeying over to Crucial.com and ordering up a new set of Ballistix Sport VLP memory kit. Not only will they eliminate the clearance problem between the two components but also omit having to pump tons of voltage in the DIMM to get a good heavy clock out of them."

Samsung S27B750V Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Wed, Dec 19 2012 | 10:37A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Samsung S27B750V is an attractive 27-inch monitor that has a unique design that`s certainly eye-catching. It has dual HDMI ports, good color quality but it all comes at a high price and scarce features beyond what`s necessary."

Patriot Gauntlet 320 Wireless Portable Drive Review @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Dec 19 2012 | 10:24A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the popularity of smart phones and tablets, the need expanded storage to house numerous large media files has increased. A big problem is, many tablets and phones (Apple devices in particular) lack the functionality to add additional capacity via media cards, etc. and upgrading to larger capacities is very expensive as compared to adding external storage. This leaves many buyers in a quandary of spending less and hoping they don`t need the space, or splurging for the larger capacity models with a premium price tag. Patriot has recognized this dilemma and decided the answer the knock of opportunity by designing a device to give consumers another option. The Patriot Gauntlet 320 wireless portable drive allows users of iOS, Android, and Kindle Fire to access content stored on the drive wirelessly through an app that can be downloaded for free..."

CM Storm Recon Mouse Pad and Bungee Roundup Review
     Wed, Dec 19 2012 | 9:25A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Skorpion bungee was a gimmick product I always snickered at with just a dumb idea conning those for money. Having used one now for a couple weeks I like the concept; the Skorpio is a really neat product and it will hold your mouse cable again and again. However, when you look at the price tag, $20 doesn`t sound like a lot, but when you realize a rock from your backyard can perform the same task you think twice. It`s a neat idea and if you have money to burn, it`s worth the burning but otherwise I`d just stick with a pet rock to hold your cable in place."

Cooler Master Storm Quickfire TK @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Dec 19 2012 | 9:25A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A little over a year ago at GeforceLAN I got my hands on my first Cooler Master Storm Quickfire Rapid with cherry black key switches and loved it. I later got an official review sample with cherry blue key switches as well as the cherry black version wasnt available in the US at the time. For the past year we have been using both of these Quickfire Rapids on our test benches because they are amazing keyboards that take up little space. The two issues I had with them was their lack of backlighting and the adjustment time needed to get used to not having a number pad. Cooler Master recently introduced a new keyboard in the Quickfire product line, their Quickfire TK. The TK addresses both of the issues I had with the rapid. Lets see how this unique design performs."
