G.SKILL RipjawsZ 1866MHz CL9 16GB DDR3 Review @ Vortez
     Wed, Dec 21 2011 | 11:13A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We`ve seen the RipjawZ before and we were impressed so hopefully this quad channel kit will be equally impressive. While it is the first kit we have reviewed fully on the X79 system, we will be pitching it against a very similar Corsair kit (expect a review soon) but before we get to the testing, let`s take a look at the specification of the G.SKILL kit."

Samsung MV800 Digital Camera Review @ Tech-Reviews.co.uk
     Wed, Dec 21 2011 | 11:04A | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Trying to find the right camera is always a difficult task. Do you go with more megapixels? Features? Or how compact it is? Well, the Samsung MV800 could be the camera you`re looking for. Featuring a 16.1MP image sensor, 3-inch touch screen display, a whole range of image modes, as well as a very sleek and stylish design, the Samsung MV800 should perform to a very high standard. Let`s take a closer look..."

Building a BitTorrent Rig with the Zotac ZBOX Nano Plus @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Dec 21 2011 | 10:43A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The BitTorrent client we built was centered around the Zotac ZBOX Nano PC and we found this platform to be rock solid in everything that we did for this project. From the Windows 7-64-bit install, to the various software associated with security and torrenting, the VIA Nano X2 processor was more than enough to support this project. For those looking to buy a Home Theater PC that does more than just surf the net, you really should look at Zotac`s catalog of mini-PCs. Most of Zotac`s mini-PCs start around $240 for fully outfitted palm-PC which make it quite tempting - even for those who like to..."

Acer Aspire 5755-6482 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Wed, Dec 21 2011 | 9:33A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?If all you have to spend on a laptop is $600, you might think there?s not too much you can get for your money. But the Acer Aspire 5755-6482 is proof that you may be wrong, with components that outstrip those you can find on other machines in this class, and even some useful software thrown in among the typical bloatware.?"

PC Power & Cooling Silencer MK III 600W Power Supply Review
     Wed, Dec 21 2011 | 9:12A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The latest Silencer MK III 600W Power Supply by PC Power & Cooling is certain to win you over, if not thanks to its rock solid rails, white/black body and 80Plus Bronze Certification then certainly because of its very attractive price tag."

ASRock X79 Extreme4-M (Intel X79) Motherboard Review
     Wed, Dec 21 2011 | 9:11A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you`ve followed what goes on with the ASRock model numbers, you would know that the -M refers to the board using the mATX Format. The mATX boards from ASRock, though, don`t only bring with it a smaller board, they also bring with it a cheaper price and at the time of writing the ASRock Extreme4-M is the cheapest X79 motherboard available at Newegg, coming in at $218.99 US. It will be interesting to see how the cheapest X79 board performs today. Before we see how the X79 Extreme4-M performs, though, we need to check out the package and bundle to see what ASRock are offering us in that department; once we`ve done that we`ll take a closer look at the board before we move into the BIOS."

ASRock X79 Extreme4 (Intel X79) Motherboard Review
     Wed, Dec 21 2011 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just absolutely powering through the motherboards we have on offer today, we`re going to look at the first of the three ASRock boards that we have currently sitting around us. Outside of the Extreme4 that we`ll be looking at today, we also have the awesome looking Micro-ATX X79 Extreme4-M and the new ultra high end board from the company - the X79 Extreme9. Today is all about the $234.99 US X79 Extreme4 and isn`t just the cheapest X79 board we`ve looked at, but it`s actually one of the cheapest X79 motherboards currently on the market period. What`s that mean, though? Are we missing out on things we need when compared to some of the ASUS, GIGABYTE and MSI boards we`ve looked at? Maybe performance isn`t as strong?"

MacBook Air vs. Ultrabooks @ TechReviewSource.com
     Wed, Dec 21 2011 | 8:08A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MacBook Air set the bar for thin and light laptops, but the first crop of ultrabooks are all set to challenge the incumbent from Apple. Marrying a strong, sleek looking unibody chassis with flash memory put the svelte MacBook Air under a lot of people`s arms. Suddenly, there was the ultrabook?a functional laptop that you could do work on?a laptop you can tuck under your arm and take anywhere.?"

Samsung Series 7 (NP700Z5A-S03) Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Wed, Dec 21 2011 | 8:06A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The Samsung Series 7 (NP700Z5A-S03) laptop combines an elegantly slim aluminum case with slot-loading DVD±RW drive; sunny 15.6-inch screen and backlit keyboard; quad-core Intel Core i7 power; 8GB of RAM; and a roomy 750GB hard drive yoked to a small solid-state drive or 8GB of cache storage to boost boot and application loading times?all in a package about as light as desktop replacements get, 5.2 pounds.?"

XFX ProSeries 1250W Power Supply Review
     Wed, Dec 21 2011 | 8:04A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this month we took a look at the new 1000W ProSeries power supply from XFX. The new unit sported lots of power, Platinum efficiency and a ton of connectors, but it came at a hefty price. XFX also added a few more power supplies to their lineup and today we are going to be taking a look at the highest wattage unit that they offer. This is the 1250W ProSeries power supply. It doesn`t offer Platinum efficiency, but it offers the same set of features and an extra set of PCI-E connectors with very little additional cost and a mild drop in efficiency. Keep reading on to find out how well the ProSeries 1250W performs and if it is worth your hard earned money."

Posted by: STAFF

HTC Rhyme Android Smartphone Review @ HardwareHeaven.com

Posted by: STAFF
HTC Rhyme Android Smartphone Review @ HardwareHeaven.com The Rhyme is a departure for HTC from previous handsets in terms of form and function. When looking at this model we cannot help being struck by its unique styling and it`s out of the ordinary, for HTC at least, colour and bundled accessories."

Know-How: Digi+ Power Control Rampage IV Formula @ ocaholic
     Wed, Dec 21 2011 | 1:44A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
On one hand the BIOS of recent motherboards has become much easier to handle when you look at it from a user interface perspective. But on the other hand you`ll find even more settings and options and almost nobody knows what the different entries are here for. For us this is reason enough to jump in and explain in a series of articles what the different features are about. First we start with the Digi+ Power Control features from a brand new Rampage IV Formula motherboard, which we think is a very good example."

eForce GTX 580 Showdown: ASUS Matrix vs.EVGA Classified @ Legit Reviews

Posted by: STAFF
After spending several weeks with the ASUS MATRIX GeForce GTX580 Platinum and the EVGA GeForce GTX 580 Classified 3072MB we quickly discovered that both video cards are outstanding examples of what the engineers at each company can do. Both designs differ greatly from the reference NVIDIA design and that was fine with us as we didn`t miss any features of the reference card..."

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.
