Duke Nukem Forever (PC) Review
     Thu, Jun 23 2011 | 12:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Let’s just address the pink elephant in the room. No one can think of Duke Nukem Forever without bringing up the extremely long development cycle. Yes, the game has had more than its fair share of drama, and has been in development for over 12 years. Due to the extremely long development time, gamers (and reviewers) believe that this game should be the most polished thing ever, with streamlined gameplay and unrivaled level design that should win awards for years to come. This is just unrealistic. We will be reviewing the PC version of Duke Nukem Forever, but we will not be judging it based on what we think we should see, but will base the review on the game’s own merits (or lack thereof).

Fractal Design Core 3000 review
     Thu, Jun 23 2011 | 12:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Fractal Design released the Core 3000, an all black, quite stylish mid-tower chassis. This ATX, Micro-ATX, Mini-ITX ready tower chassis can house a pair of external 5.25-inch drive bays, for ODDs (optical disk drives) or anything else that uses that form factor of course. Then on the inside Fractal Design made sure you can house a lot of internal 3.5-inch HDDs as the bays allow six of them to be installed with the top bay being removable, which will allow you to use long graphics cards.

“The Dell Inspiron 17R is a large 17-inch desktop replacement laptop that has a sturdy design that as some updated internals and ports, including USB 3.0 and Intel's Wireless Display interface. However it has only average graphics performance and doesn't have a Blu-ray optical drive.”

Thermaltake's Armor A90 mid-tower case
     Thu, Jun 23 2011 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Up front, the 5.25? and 3.5? drive bays are protected by a very solid door. The bottom-front houses a 120mm intake fan, which will help cool your drives while bringing in fresh air to the system. The side panel includes a small window, offering just a sneak peek as to what’s inside. There is an optional 120mm fan spot as well on the side, if you decide you need more direct fresh-air cooling for your video cards, chipset, or CPU.

Intel SSD 320 Series 160 GB Review
     Thu, Jun 23 2011 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Most solid state drive (SSD) manufacturers make their drives with a standard set of capacities with the most popular being 64 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB. Intel is the exception to this rule, as they produce their SSDs in more varied capacities from 40 GB to 600 GB. Today we are going to look at a 320 Series 160 GB SSD from Intel which will give you a little more space than the 128 GB drives that most manufacturers offer."

OCZ Agility 3 240GB SSD
     Thu, Jun 23 2011 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
" ..The OCZ Agility 3 SSD offers an incredible throughput, it excels in IOPs performance and in fact remains close to it's bigger brother the Vertex 3. For typical desktop workloads, the Agility 3 is cheaper than the Vertex 3 and it should do the job for you. If you start mixing in data that's not easily compressed by the SandForce controller, the Agility will not offer the write/read speeds quoted by OCZ ..."

Duke Nukem Forever @ Bjorn3D
     Thu, Jun 23 2011 | 5:06A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
On June 14, 2011 the long-anticipated Duke Nukem Forever finally hit the market, drawing the gaze of many gamers. Taking a quick glimpse at the new game and comparing it with the 14 year old Duke Nukem 3D, players will find the changes quite pleasant. Aside from the obvious changes in graphics, Duke Nukem Forever has been integrated with completely new gameplay dynamics seen in the latest shooters, such as Crysis 2 and Bulletstorm. The players are now not only limited to a direct confrontation with the enemy, but rather will have to utilize the surrounding environment to make it through various parts of the game. In addition, the users are provided with a larger set of options to choose from when playing Duke Nukem Forever. The game offers both a single player mode as well as multiplayer."

Habey EMC-600B SFF Mini-ITX Chassis Review
     Wed, Jun 22 2011 | 4:34P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Wesena ITX7, HDPlex H10.ODD and Vidabox vCase3 are all great cases with a direct focus on HTPC aesthetics and each has their pros and cons. The one con almost always present when discussing HTPC chassis is PRICE--SFF chassis with home theater A/V focused designs are frequently over the $100 price range, not including the power supply. What Habey is offering in their EMC-600B enclosure is a stylish aluminum SFF chassis for mini-ITX only that occupies a tiny footprint with a nice appearance to fit just as appropriately in your A/V stack as in your bedroom--and it includes a power supply, all for under $70.

GT Omega Racing Simulator Review
     Wed, Jun 22 2011 | 4:34P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I think everyone reading this already has a passion for motorsports. We all have interesting stories about adventures on and off the track and dreams that most likely will never be fulfilled. I spent a large part of my childhood at dirt tracks in the Midwest; places like Kokomo Speedway and Eldora. The highlight each year, though, was the Indy 500. Now that I'm paying my own bills and have a family, I live about 20 minutes from the famed 2.5 mile track that captured my imagination as a child. Each year we have a gathering at my house to celebrate the event with family and friends. Last December we moved into a new house that offered us room to grow our family. The new place has a massive unfinished basement and offered me the opportunity to build the ultimate secret bunker office space, but after realizing I didn't need an office that was bigger than my first apartment, it was time to divide the area into two rooms. Of course, in order to effectively churn out some of the best SSD reviews on the web, I needed a large office to hold all of the test machines and supplemental hardware, but the space that was left over is slowly turning into a game theater room."

Logitech Z906 Speaker System Review
     Wed, Jun 22 2011 | 4:33P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It doesn't matter how hard your earphones pound your eardrums with cranium shaking noise, you can't truly call yourself a power user unless you're ticking off the neighbors and scaring the hell out of the dog with a surround sound setup that rattles the walls and punches copious amounts of bass. Without it, you might as well give your man-card away to someone who plans on fulfilling the requirements for membership in an illustrious club that demands everything be over the top. Logitech's famed Z-5500 system fit the bill, and there are many who consider it to be the king of multimedia speakers. But a king's reign can only last so long before either being usurped, or passing the torch to a successor. In this case, it's the latter, with Logitech's new Z906 speaker system stepping up to the throne as the company's new flagship speaker-set...

The Linux Kernel Power Problems On Older Desktop Hardware
     Wed, Jun 22 2011 | 4:33P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"As mentioned last week, a plethora of Linux power tests are on the way now that we have found an AC power meter with USB interface that works under Linux and we've been able to integrate nicely into the Phoronix Test Suite and its sensor monitoring framework. In this article is one of the first tests that have been completed using this power-measuring device as we monitored the Linux kernel power consumption for an old Intel Pentium 4 and ATI Radeon 9200 system for the past several kernel releases. Even this very old desktop system looks to be affected by the kernel power problems."

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.
