REVIEW: Cooler Master Sentinel Advance II and Speed-RX @ PureOverclock
     Sat, May 12 2012 | 11:53A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Aesthetics may help sell a mouse, but the comfort, ergonomics, and price are what often make or break the deal for most diehard gamers. Currently retailing for about $60, the Cooler Master Sentinel Advanced II is priced very well, poised to make a push in the mid-range peripheral market. As an added bonus, we`re looking at the new Speed-RX gaming surface as well. Let`s take a closer look at each of these to see if they can run with the big dogs or will be left on the porch."

Razer Naga Hex Expert Gaming Mouse Review
     Sat, May 12 2012 | 11:53A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The very first target group of gaming mice was FPS gamers since due to its nature the mouse offered significantly better performance/speed and accuracy compared to both the keyboard and gamepads/joypads. Because of that and also because almost a decade ago FPS games were flooding the market it took many years before manufacturers started even considering the development of gaming mice for other game types such as RTS and MMO`s. Fortunately today the market is filled with countless gaming mice designed with special features for every gamer type out there from FPS and RTS gamers up to MMO gamers. The Naga Hex by Razer which has been with us for the past week was designed not only to cover the needs of regular FPS gamers but also the needs of the more demanding MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) gamers who require the best of all worlds including speed/accuracy, control and extra buttons."

     Sat, May 12 2012 | 10:43A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Value 430 from Nexus is an entry-level power supply that the manufacturer claims to be one of the quietest power supplies available today. The manufacturer also promises efficiency above 80%, even though this unit doesn`t have the 80 Plus certification. Let`s see if the Nexus Value 430 is a good buy."

HIS Radeon HD 7770 iCooler 1 GB @ techPowerUp
     Sat, May 12 2012 | 9:38A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HIS Radeon HD 7770 iCooler is a close to reference implementation of the HD 7770. Coming at reference design price and clocks, its biggest innovation is its cooler, which is exceedingly quiet. It is actually the quietest HD 7770 we tested so far."

G.Skill Ripjaws Z DDR3 2133 8GB Quad Kit @ Pro-Clockers
     Sat, May 12 2012 | 9:15A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
And with the addition of the CPU Strap allows us to take the memory bus higher in smaller increments. And this is great with you have some pretty solid memory modules. And today on tap we feel that we do have a set of memory we consider solid. The kit is from G.Skill and is called the Ripjaws Z and is rated at 2133 MHz but it would be silly to not try and take them farther."

NZXT Switch 810 Review
     Sat, May 12 2012 | 8:59A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Well folks, many of us may remember the Cooler Master HAF 932 when it came out and many of those who do will remember the awe that some of us felt about its cooling capabilities and performance. It seems that the NZXT 810 is equal or better than the HAF 932 in every test other than one, in which it was only a single degree worse off. The hard drive temperatures are excellent thanks to the push/pull configuration through the hard drive cage, and the GPU temperatures are made superior by the extra fan(s) specifically to cool the GPU(s). As far as these numbers go, this should put the NZXT Switch 810 at the top of many competitors` lists."

Lenovo IdeaCentre Q180: Atoms Wake
     Sat, May 12 2012 | 7:37A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our performance benchmarks quickly eliminated my hopes that this system could serve in either role. Atom was not a very good processor when it debuted, and since then Intel has allowed it to wither on the vine. Lenovo should have gone with an AMD E-450 APU instead - it also can have trouble with HD video in certain situations, but in my experience the Fusion APUs have been far superior to Atom paired with a discrete GPU."

Sapphire HD 7870 Review
     Sat, May 12 2012 | 6:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overclocking this card was fairly easy. With a stock clock of already 50MHz over the 1GHz mark, I wasn`t expecting the card to have much headroom for overclocking in the first place. However, I was able to achieve an overclock of over 200MHz for the core clock. This resulted in a final clock speed of 1257MHz. As for the memory I was able to bring it up to 1331MHz, not too bad for a video card!"

Hama Arezzo 50F Leather Style Compact Camera Case Review @ DragonSteelMods
     Fri, May 11 2012 | 4:12P | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today for review I?ve got another one of the camera cases from our friends at Love Cases. This one is rather stylish in that it looks like leather. It?s called the Arezzo 50F Leather Style Compact Camera Case and it?s from a company called Hama. The case is very basic, just a spot to hold your camera and a memory card or two. It?s a no frills case that should do a decent job of protecting the camera inside and look good doing it. "

REVIEW: Gigabyte GTX 670 Windforce @ PureOverclock
     Fri, May 11 2012 | 3:51P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nvidia is looking to continue the Kepler success we saw in the GTX 680 with today`s launch of the GTX 670, the latest card in the Kepler arsenal. Sharing the same DNA as the flagship GTX 680, this new card is poised to offer the same innovations, but at $100 lower, to be a bit more accessible to gamers who aren`t quite well-heeled enough for the flagship card. One of those custom cards is the Gigabyte GTX 670 Windforce, a sleek behemoth that sports a triple-fanned cooler, increased Base Clock speeds, and a Boost Clock potential that appears to be second to none. What you really need to know is this card runs cool like the underside of your pillow on a hot summer night. And fast enough to knock your current graphics card back into last year."
