Sapphire A75 Pure Platinum Review
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 8:20P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As with all socket types, the motherboard isn`t really going to give a noticeable performance increase or decrease. If they did, the comparison charts would be slightly more interesting. So instead of buying a motherboard based on performance, it`s best to purchase one based on its overclockability, features, and sometimes even its looks. After using the Sapphire A75 Pure Platinum I`m confident in saying that it doesn`t fall short in the latter two of these categories. The one that I`m slightly concerned about is the board`s ability to overclock."

Targus USB 2.0 Multi-Monitor Adapter @ Rbmods
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 8:10P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When sitting on a laptop for example you might want to run dual or triple screens, however on a laptop you rarely have more than one or two plugins for screens. Targus has a solution for this, by plugging their Multi monitor adapter into a USB port you will be able to plug in another screen to your computer. The question that immedietely comes up in my head is, can I game and use a computer without lag running this device? Lets figure out if it?s possible!"

Thecus N3200XXX NAS Server Review
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 8:00P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back when we looked at the N3200PRO, we were impressed with the size and the fact that you were able to get RAID 5 in a small unit designed for SOHO/home use. In the N3200XX, you get that and more, with an upgraded design, upgraded hardware, and a thoroughly modern GUI based on AJAX technology. With the improved firmware comes a set of features to rival most larger units, with iSCSI, NAS Stacking, ISO image mounting, RAID level migration, and expansion. For a small unit, it has a big feature set and the performance to go with it."

BitFenix Outlaw Case Review
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 7:40P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Outlaw was a little disappointing in its performance. Compared to a few cases that are only $10 more expensive, it really does start lacking. I wasn`t pleased with the overall build of the case to begin with, and these high temperatures definitely do not help. Adding fans wouldn`t be much more expensive, but for an additional $10 or less, I could buy a different case with better stock temps. I`m really not impressed."

Asus ROG Vulcan ANC Pro Gaming Headset @ Rbmods

Posted by: STAFF

Today we are taking a look at the Asus Vulcan ANC Pro Gaming headphones that you can pick up for around 50$. What type of quality and sound quality can we expect from these?"

Pivos Aios HD Media Centre Review
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 7:20P | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Aios had no issues playing any of the files I threw at it. Several raw camcorder m2ts files that I have trouble playing back on my own computer played flawlessly on the Aios. Although this is likely due to missing codecs on my part, the fact that the Aios can play them immediately and without work-arounds is excellent. Audio files were also played with absolute ease. FLAC files are indeed able to be decoded without issue, and I commend Pivos for choosing (and Realtek for making) the excellent RTD1185DD media processor. ISO image files were able to be played back as well and provided no difficulties. The remote control worked well, and all the buttons performed their functions admirably. Playing files from a hard drive or an external flash card saw no slow downs, skips, or any other unwanted occurrences."

TTesports Shock Spin Headphones @ Rbmods
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 7:16P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today it?s time for another headset/headphone review, this time we take a look at a set from headphones from TTesports. We have already reviewed their Shock headset so I am curious if these headphones can keep similar performance and quality. They sent us their Spin headphones for review that seem to be fairly big yet lightweight and also wallet friendly? so lets take a closer look!"

Sapphire HD 6850 1GB Vapor-X Edition
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 7:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Well, I was already aware of what most HD6850s were capable of through overclocking, and I found that I hit a similar wall with this one. The core speed, while using a voltage of 1.225V, got stuck at 1030MHz. Everything after that began to artifact and show poor, unstable image quality. At 1030MHz, this card produced the highest core clock speed of all of the comparison cards! This is a slight improvement over the XFX HD6850 comparison card, which maxed out at 1020MHz. The memory, on the other hand, pulled ahead at 1249MHz where the comparison HD6850 stopped at about 1200MHz. With a cooler that is slightly improved over the reference, XFX version, this isn`t to be unexpected. The results here are good, especially with the near 30% overclock on the core."

Bitcoin Currency and GPU Mining Performance Comparison
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 6:43P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Obviously from our testing the AMD architecture is much better suited for this mining algorithm than NVIDIA`s GeForce cards, but why? It really comes down to AMD`s use of smaller and simpler shader processing units compared to the design that NVIDIA uses; AMD runs more SPs at lower frequencies (1600 SPs on an HD 5870 running at 850 MHz) while NVIDIA runs fewer SPs at higher frequencies (GTX 480 has 480 SPs running at 1400 MHz). This gives AMD a better ALU output than NVIDIA."

NZXT Source 220 Case Review
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 6:40P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Opening the case up and taking a peek from both sides of the case, it`s a near spitting image of the NZXT Tempest 210. I honestly can`t find any difference other than the front panel and loss of one fan on the side panel. This case is down to the bones a NZXT Tempest 210. A creative and cost efficient move on NZXT`s part - no wonder they can sell a couple of these bad boys at such low prices to consumers."

Lowepro LP34711-0AM Black Ridge 10 Camera Case @ Rbmods
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 6:22P | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We rarely review something we have bought ourselves, in the last 5 years I think we have gone through maybe 3 products, but once in awhile you find products that might be cheap or expensive but they all got something special. Today we are taking a look at a compact little camera case from Lowepro which retails for 4,99$. So you might wonder what can a little inexpensive case give me? Lets find out!"

Mushkin Blackline PC3-16000 3x4GB Review
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 6:20P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Using the XMP profile, the suggested QPI voltage was 1.40V. But, in my case the memory controller wasn`t happy until I gave it 1.45V. Once that issue was patched, the memory ran perfectly stable at stock, operating warm but not hot. The memory would tighten up some, but the CAS latency didn`t like to go down to 8 over 1850 MHz, however, 8-9-8-27 was fully stable at 1805 MHz and 9-9-9-24 was stable at 2000 MHz. Overclocking was easy but my i7 920s IMC couldn`t keep up, so I had to settle with 2105 MHz which required 1.5375V QPI."

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.
