Asus 20" ET2011AUKB-B006E All-In-One PC Review
     Fri, Feb 10 2012 | 9:02A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It feels like only yesterday that we evaluated the Asus 2400ET, a touch-enabled All-In-One desktop that had high-end specifications and a $1,250 price tag to match. Turns out, that was nearly four months ago, and if you aren't interested in a touch panel, a Core i5 processor, and don't have deep pockets, perhaps the scaled-back ET2011 we'll be showing you here is worth consideration. This is a somewhat unique product in the Asus Eee Top ET2011 AIO line up, in that in relies on AMD's Fusion Brazos E-350 APU in lieu of a more traditional desktop processor...

Asus Eee Pad Slider Hands-On Video Demo
     Fri, Feb 10 2012 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Asus Eee Pad Slider is a break-out device, much in the way the Asus Eee Pad Transformer broke the mold not so long ago when it was announced. Though it's built on the same base NVIDIA Tegra 2 platform that many 10.1 Android Honeycomb slates are these days, the Slider offers a netbook-like slide-out keyboard solution that takes the standard tablet experience to a whole new level. For not a lot more size and weight (or cost for that matter), you also get a full-sized USB port and HDMI output with Slider. We stepped through the device in detail in our full review recently, but today we thought we'd update our coverage with a quick video demo of the Slider in action. Enjoy and be sure to check out the full review, if you haven't seen it already...

Alienware M18x Gaming Notebook: A Tale of Two GPUs
     Fri, Feb 10 2012 | 9:00A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Big, bad and unapologetic. These three words accurately describe the Alienware M18x. Unapologetic about its size, this is a desktop replacement notebook that almost defies the entire category of portable machines. Sure, it's portable, in the sense that you can move it from room to room or perhaps pack it up for a LAN, but you're not tossing this bad boy into a dainty backpack or laptop tote. No, the Alienware M18x steps into the ring weighing in at nearly 12lbs (11.935) and thumbs its nose at would-be competitors. In our efforts to evaluate Alienware's new gaming Goliath, the company decided to send us two machines with identical base builds, an Intel Core i7-2630QM quad-core at the helm, but with different graphics subsystems. One M18x came strapped with a pair of NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580M GPUs in SLI. The other came packing heat with dual AMD Radeon HD 6990M GPUs in CrossFire...

ASUS Rampage IV Formula BF3 Edition Motherboard Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Thu, Feb 09 2012 | 9:40P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Rampage IV Formula motherboard comes in two versions: a standard edition and one that comes bundled with Battlefield 3. The Rampage IV Formula X79 motherboard uses a standard ATX form-factor unlike the wider E-ATX Rampage IV Extreme and the shorter Micro-ATX Rampage IV Gene. Like previous Republic of Gamers Rampage lineup motherboards, the Rampage IV Formula is designed for ultimate gaming performance as well as comfortable extreme overclocking. With the new Extreme Engine DIGI+ II bringing precise fully digital power delivery towards the CPU, memory controller and system memory, the Rampage IV Formula is stable whether you are using a regular air cooler or you are an LN2 extreme performance tuner. The Rampage IV Formula supports up to Quad-SLI or CrossfireX setups natively and provides superb network performance via Intel LAN plus GameFirst for the ultimate gaming experience.///"

Posted by: STAFF
The Athena Power AP-MFATX40P8 400 W is a tiny FlexATX power supply measuring 3.2 x 1.7 x 6 inches (80 x 40 x 150 mm), targeted to small form factor (SFF) computers with Mini-ITX motherboards, coming with the 80 Plus Bronze certification. We tested the 350 W version of this power supply, which didn`t pass our tests. Let`s see if the 400 W version is a better product."

Gigabyte Radeon HD 7970 3GB OC Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Thu, Feb 09 2012 | 7:08P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HD 7970 is currently one of the most popular cards around and Gigabyte has once again done their part to design a custom card that improves upon the reference design in nearly every way possible. While their OC edition may not sport ultra high clock speeds, it more than makes up for this shortcoming by incorporating the WindForce 3X heatsink which allows for significantly cooler temperatures and near silent operation. * *"

NZXT Switch 810 Full Tower Chassis - BCCHardware
     Thu, Feb 09 2012 | 6:30P | Cases | PermaLink

It can be built as a great air cooled system, and can be quickly swapped out to support a large liquid cooling system and large graphics cards. It`s your choice. . ."

OCZ Technology Octane 512GB Solid State Drive with 1.13 Performance Firmware
     Thu, Feb 09 2012 | 5:14P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new firmware update roughly doubles random write performance, a weak point in the initial release. With a 10,000 IOPS increase in random write speed we`ll be examining the new performance of the 512GB capacity size. When the industry moves to 20nm in Q3, 512GB will be the new 256GB. 512GB drives should cost much less than they do today and by the time Q4 rolls around they may even become affordable like the 256GB drives are today."

Intel Core i7-3820 Review: Sandy Bridge-E for the masses
     Thu, Feb 09 2012 | 3:29P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Late last year when we reviewed the new Sandy Bridge-E processors, we mentioned a more affordable version called the Core i7-3820 was coming. Although information about the chip had been revealed, the processor has yet to hit shelves and is now expected to arrive later in February. Fortunately, sample units are being passed around ahead of general availability, so we don't have to wait to see how it stacks up. The i7-3820 is particularly intriguing because of its sub-$300 retail price -- far less than other chips in the series. For instance, the Core i7-3960X has an MSRP of $999 and sells for more like $1,049, while the i7-3930K has an MSRP of $583 and is fetching $599 at e-tail. Both are six-core CPUs operating over 3GHz with massive 15MB and 12MB L3 caches. At roughly half the price of the 3930K, we expected Intel to butcher the i7-3820, and while that's partially true, the 3820 remains an impressive specimen with four cores operating at 3.6GHz, a 10MB L3 cache and HyperThreading support. Compared to the similarly priced i7-2600K, the 3820 offers additional L3 cache, support for PCI Express 3.0, quad-channel memory and a platform that will take as much as 32GB of system memory.

REVIEW: Enermax Fulmo @ PureOverclock
     Thu, Feb 09 2012 | 3:20P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Enermax is probably not best known for their case designs; rather, they`re very renowned for their power supplies, but they have produced several cases, and we`ve seen them to be typically rather garish creations. We`re not fans of the outlandish, but the Fulmo mid-tower case is a distinct trend to the opposite; it`s quite tasteful, and we`re rather fond of the new restrained styling shown by Enermax."

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.
