BIOS Option Of The Week - PSB Parking
     Wed, Feb 08 2012 | 11:55A | BIOS | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meager beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition. Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend. This week, we will be taking a look at the PSB Parking BIOS setting."

Posted by: STAFF
Spacious interior for up to a full 24inch LCD screen, 5 different compartments, 3 different carrying ways and a very good build quality which allows you to carry up to 41kg of things are some of the reasons for which people who attend LAN events or people who just want a large carrying bag for their notebooks should really take a closer look at the latest Battle Dragon Bag by Tt eSports."

HIS Radeon HD 7950 3GB Video Card Review
     Wed, Feb 08 2012 | 9:44A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At the launch of any new GPU we always try to make an effort to put a reference based video card up for testing as it`s the best model to set a baseline for what we`re dealing with when it comes to a new model. At the same time, though, we be fair and in a first come first serve basis the XFX HD 7950 Black Edition Double Dissipation 3GB was the first to arrive at our labs and not only did it carry with itself an aftermarket cooler, but also an out of the box overclock. Today, though, we take a step back and look at a Radeon HD 7950 from HIS that carries with it what should be the reference cooler along with the standard reference clocks. Of course before we get into the performance side of things there are a few other areas we need to look at."

A Futurelooks News Flash - Intel SSD 520 Series 240GB Retail Solid State Drive Bundle Review
     Wed, Feb 08 2012 | 9:21A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Futurelooks checks out Intel`s latest and greatest SSD series ... * * *Intel SSD 520 Series 240GB Retail Solid State Drive Bundle Review* The number one question for Intel a few months ago was where were their higher end, fast SATA6 SSDs. There were plenty of Sand Force SF-2281 controlled SSDs pushing 6Gb/s speeds on the market yet many were using Intel NAND. Today we get to answer that question with the launch of Intel?s SSD 520 Series Solid State Drives. They begin finding their way to the shelves among the rest of the hot rod SATA6 SSDs this week and everything about them is all ?Intel Inside? straight down to the supporting SSD Tool Kit software. The big question is did engineers bring us a polished weapon against slow system performance or a new blue screen symptom? Let?s find out!"

NZXT Source 220 Computer Case Review @ APH Networks
     Tue, Feb 07 2012 | 11:55A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I am always amazed at how the political and economic system works in the United States. While I am not suggesting Canada is leaps and bounds better, it is interesting how the United States government would even consider the SOPA and PIPA bills. On the technology side, blackouts were the main method of protesting, and in the end, it proved to be highly influential. Not only did it draw tons of support, but most importantly, it made many people aware of the issues and reduce the likelihood of similar future incidents from happening. With that in mind, probably completely unintentional, the NZXT Source 220 is like the blacked out version of the NZXT Source 210 Elite. Having a completely black theme without the option for a white variation, I guess the value budget consumer will have to lose out on customization. By having no other options, you might get the feeling of being forced to accept the chassis as it is; however, I am pretty certain that there will be significantly less controversy over the Source 220 than the previously mentioned bills. Today, I am not here to talk about either the SOPA or PIPA bills. Instead, we have ourselves a revision of the NZXT Source 210 Elite to discuss. Now of course, just like I would hope with any revisions to SOPA or PIPA, there should be some significant improvements over the previous version. One last note, I do not support SOPA or PIPA, and I am very thankful for the turn of events related to those bills."

Fractal Design Define XL Computer Case Review @ Benchmark Review
     Tue, Feb 07 2012 | 9:44A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Long Live the Extra Large Full Tower PC Case? My last review at Benchmark Reviews left off praising the shrink factor of technology and the maturation of micro cases (Silverstone PS07b micro case). At the same time, Benchmark Reviews has been busy reviewing monster sized cases. One conclusion that can be derived from the size and options of PC cases is that the PC case is not nearly as dead as some surmise, be they large or small. Otherwise, we`d be getting less variety and more generic offerings, along with fewer manufacturers. So, let`s get going and see how the Fractal Design Define XL Silent PC Full Tower Chassis measures up to a market awash in full tower cases."

AMD Radeon HD 7950 3GB Video Card Overclocked
     Tue, Feb 07 2012 | 9:39A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Because we`ve already looked at a reference clocked card it seems completely pointless to turn around and benchmark the AMD HD 7950 in exactly the same way as we know that performance is going to be almost identical outside a bit of fluctuation. For that reason we`ll be taking the time to overclock the new model and see just what kind of performance we`re able to get out of a standard HD 7950. What`s even better is that the new Beta 11 of MSI Afterburner brings with it voltage adjustment for the new HD 7950 which means we`ll be able to get a true idea of overclocking performance. Before we cover the overclocking side of things, there are a couple of things we need to do beforehand."

Antec Three Hundred Two
     Tue, Feb 07 2012 | 9:22A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Three Hundred, the previous well-liked case by Antec, is back with a chassis designed to handle today and tomorrow?s high-performance systems. The Three Hundred Two, is touted to be the next standard in affordable gaming cases. This new chassis from Antec is supposed to be built for gamers from the inside-out. With tool-less 5.25? & 3.5? drive bays, a large cable management compartment and two front panel USB 3.0 ports with an internal connector, the Three Hundred Two will hopefully be the rightful heir to the Gaming Series legacy. However, it still needs to pass our testing before we approve any of the praise this case has already received. Read on ?"

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.

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.
