Asus P8P67 Pro B3 Rev 3.1 Motherboard @ Rbmods
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 9:22P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I know we have lacked in motherboard reviews lately, so today we are taking a look at a fairly new motherboard from Asus which is called ?P8P67 Pro Rev3.1.? This board is equipped with loads of overclocking features and should easily push our cpu to around 4,5GHz or more. Lets find out how this board performs!"

Raidon GR5630-WSB3 4-Bay Desktop Storage System Review
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 9:20P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to storage, it`s not enough to offer just a bunch of space because storage is a commodity that even the most basic of systems today can offer. What you need is a compelling reason to spend your hard-earned dollars and if you`re a one-trick pony like the GR5630-WSB3, then speed and price are your major selling points and the unit comes up short in this regard. From a price standpoint, the GR5630-WSB3 can be had for around $300. The Thecus N4100PRO can be found for $350, with other 4-bay units from QNAP and Synology ranging from $300 - $400. A NAS unit offers a lot more features and flexibility, which leads me to conclude that the value just isn`t there in the GR5630-WSB3."

Lets not waste any time and figure out what kind of performance that we can expect!"

Sapphire Radeon HD 6870 DiRT 3 Special Edition Review
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 9:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The big discovery here is a card that was able to clock higher than any 6870 we`ve had here at OverclockersClub. This led to great performance comparatively to the reference design and the realization that maybe there`s a little bit more to be had from the 6870 line. The huge dual-fan cooler no doubt contributed to the rock star performance and successfully kept temperatures more than reasonable with moderate interruption to ambient noise. Sapphire`s TriXX utility is one of my favorites throughout the industry competitors. It is very simple to understand and is capable of achieving much higher overclocks than the utility embedded in the Catalyst Control Center."

Verbatim StorenGo 1 TB USB 3.0 @ techPowerUp
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 8:49P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Verbatim has taken their affordable Store`n`Go hard drive line-up and now offers it with the newest USB 3.0 interface. Even so the drive still aims to be affordable while offering the level of performance one would expect from the new connection method."

Antec Solo II Case @ Rbmods
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 8:46P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we will take a look at Antec?s newest case in Sonata family. Antec Solo II is an upgraded model of the well known Solo case. It is more than just a facelift of the old model! Antec advertises it to be smaller than normal midi-case, but would have similar features than most high end large cases. Let?s take a look at what it has to offer."

ROCCAT Kulo 7.1 USB Headset Review
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 8:40P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Clearly designed with gaming in mind, the Kulo headset hits its mark here. Running through several levels of both Left for Dead 2 and Borderlands with a few friends proved to be an easy task. Not only could I hear that sneaky hunter creeping up behind me but my friends could hear me perfectly through the microphone. Move it further away from your face...no that`s too far...I can`t hear you...stop yelling... This familiar scene in which your friends tell you how to adjust your microphone is non-existent. On top of this, you can turn up the volume and really be a part of the game."

Sapphire A75 Pure Platinum Review
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 8:20P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As with all socket types, the motherboard isn`t really going to give a noticeable performance increase or decrease. If they did, the comparison charts would be slightly more interesting. So instead of buying a motherboard based on performance, it`s best to purchase one based on its overclockability, features, and sometimes even its looks. After using the Sapphire A75 Pure Platinum I`m confident in saying that it doesn`t fall short in the latter two of these categories. The one that I`m slightly concerned about is the board`s ability to overclock."

Targus USB 2.0 Multi-Monitor Adapter @ Rbmods
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 8:10P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When sitting on a laptop for example you might want to run dual or triple screens, however on a laptop you rarely have more than one or two plugins for screens. Targus has a solution for this, by plugging their Multi monitor adapter into a USB port you will be able to plug in another screen to your computer. The question that immedietely comes up in my head is, can I game and use a computer without lag running this device? Lets figure out if it?s possible!"

Thecus N3200XXX NAS Server Review
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 8:00P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back when we looked at the N3200PRO, we were impressed with the size and the fact that you were able to get RAID 5 in a small unit designed for SOHO/home use. In the N3200XX, you get that and more, with an upgraded design, upgraded hardware, and a thoroughly modern GUI based on AJAX technology. With the improved firmware comes a set of features to rival most larger units, with iSCSI, NAS Stacking, ISO image mounting, RAID level migration, and expansion. For a small unit, it has a big feature set and the performance to go with it."

BitFenix Outlaw Case Review
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 7:40P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Outlaw was a little disappointing in its performance. Compared to a few cases that are only $10 more expensive, it really does start lacking. I wasn`t pleased with the overall build of the case to begin with, and these high temperatures definitely do not help. Adding fans wouldn`t be much more expensive, but for an additional $10 or less, I could buy a different case with better stock temps. I`m really not impressed."

Asus ROG Vulcan ANC Pro Gaming Headset @ Rbmods

Posted by: STAFF

Today we are taking a look at the Asus Vulcan ANC Pro Gaming headphones that you can pick up for around 50$. What type of quality and sound quality can we expect from these?"

Pivos Aios HD Media Centre Review
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 7:20P | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Aios had no issues playing any of the files I threw at it. Several raw camcorder m2ts files that I have trouble playing back on my own computer played flawlessly on the Aios. Although this is likely due to missing codecs on my part, the fact that the Aios can play them immediately and without work-arounds is excellent. Audio files were also played with absolute ease. FLAC files are indeed able to be decoded without issue, and I commend Pivos for choosing (and Realtek for making) the excellent RTD1185DD media processor. ISO image files were able to be played back as well and provided no difficulties. The remote control worked well, and all the buttons performed their functions admirably. Playing files from a hard drive or an external flash card saw no slow downs, skips, or any other unwanted occurrences."

TTesports Shock Spin Headphones @ Rbmods
     Wed, Nov 16 2011 | 7:16P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today it?s time for another headset/headphone review, this time we take a look at a set from headphones from TTesports. We have already reviewed their Shock headset so I am curious if these headphones can keep similar performance and quality. They sent us their Spin headphones for review that seem to be fairly big yet lightweight and also wallet friendly? so lets take a closer look!"

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.

Rating:
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.
