Thortech Thunderbolt Plus 1000W PSU Review
     Thu, Dec 15 2011 | 11:19A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Very few of our readers are going to be familiar with the Thortech name as it hasn`t been around very long at all. A few may recognize the name as showing up while poking around a few of the online stores, but probably didn`t give them much of a thought. What most of you will be surprised to know is that Thortech is a subsidiary of GeIL. GeIL announced in 2010 that it would start offering power supplies under the Thortech brand. Since then, the company has offered two lines of power supplies - the Thunderbolt series and Thunderbolt Plus series. Today we are going to be taking a look at the Thunderbolt Plus 1000W power supply. It`s packed full of features that place it square in the eyes of many enthusiasts and looks very good on paper. One of the key features of the Thunderbolt Plus series is that it offers an interactive 5.25 display that will tell you just about everything you`d like to know about the power supply such as load, efficiency, fan speed, temperature and more. Keep reading on to find out if GeIL`s latest and greatest is all bark and no bite or if it lives up to what it says it can do."

     Thu, Dec 15 2011 | 9:54A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The Logitech Couch Mouse M515 is exactly what its name suggests: a mouse to use while sitting on a couch, carpet or otherwise non-desk surface. It works well on most surface, especially fabric, and has very long battery life but it is a little heavier than we expected.?"

HP Omni 220-1080qd Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Thu, Dec 15 2011 | 9:03A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The HP Omni 220-1080qd is one of the few all-in-one desktop PCs that doesn`t come equipped with a capacitive touch screen. Rather, HP has designed a desktop with a better Core i7 CPU, discrete GPU, and USB 3.0 interfaces?which is more than most all-in-one PCs have to offer at this price point. That said, the system isn`t perfect, but it`s not too far away either.?"

MSI Radeon HD 6950 1GB Twin Frozr III Power Edition OC Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Thu, Dec 15 2011 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The most recent graphics card in MSI`s quickly expanding stable doesn?t aim for the headlines but continues a longstanding tradition of offering excellent performance at a reasonable cost. Their HD 6950 Twin Frozr III 1G/OC (yes, it?s a mouthful) only goes for around $260 but should be able to play almost any game on the market at its highest detail settings and mid to high resolutions."

     Wed, Dec 14 2011 | 7:15P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The MSI P67A-GD80 makes a comeback with a new revision now that Intel was able to cure the SATA woes plaguing its P67 and H67 motherboards with an updated B3 chipset stepping. Even without the updated chipset, the GD80 looked like a strong contender for enthusiasts wanting to make the leap to new Intel CPU architecture thanks to its features.

OCZ ZS Series 550W Power Supply Review @ APH Networks
     Wed, Dec 14 2011 | 6:45P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It is hard to believe it is already mid-October already. It seems not too long ago we were all enjoying the sunshine and days off -- at least that is how I feel here at APH Networks Vancouver, with the weather slowly becoming the usual colder, darker and filled with rain (As most Vancouverites has come to expect at this time of the year, anyway). Although if there is a good thing to take out of this weather, it would be the time spent inside. For me, I may finally have some time to write a review, do some work, and in general, spend more time in front of my computer. So for all those who will be spending more time in front of your computer like yours truly, there is one crucial component in a system that are often overlooked, and that is the power supply. A few months ago, we have covered the OCZ ZX Series 850W; OCZ`s flagship performance PSU. Today, we will be diving deeper into a product from the other end of the spectrum, and that is the OCZ ZS Series 550W -- a more budget friendly power supply for enthusiasts who are looking for reliability and performance on budget. Nowadays, you can get a good quality power supply from a reputable manufacturer for $50-60, so why cheap out on the part that keeps the life of your computer going? Without further delay, let`s dig right into our report, and check out all the juicy details to see if this product is right for the task."

Catalyst 11.12 Windows 7 Driver Analysis
     Wed, Dec 14 2011 | 4:10P | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I shouldn`t be doing this at the moment; instead I should be packing for my holidays, but after discovering that we haven`t missed a Catalyst Driver Analysis in seven years, I didn`t want this to be the first one. So with that said, we`ll move with haste and just get stuck into the performance side of things to see what exactly is going on with the latest driver set from AMD - the Catalyst 11.12. Quickly before we do that, though, we need to check out the release notes. To be honest, going through the release notes, you`re not going to see anything that stands out too much. We`ve got some improvements in some areas and as always we find ourselves with a decent list of resolved issues, but on the performance side of things we`re not seeing a whole lot."

We`ve got the very stylish and minimalistic Ferguson Hill FH009 speakers to review for you today.
