Thermaltake Level 10 GT Review
     Mon, Jun 27 2011 | 3:55P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“A year ago now Thermaltake released a fantastic and futuristic looking case that caught the eyes of all computer enthusiasts, that specific chassis was the Thermaltake Level 10 designed by none other than BMW. The price mark for it was well needless to say “a bit pricy”. However Thermaltake have now released its newest edition to the Level 10 series which is what we have for you here today, the Thermaltake Level 10 GT. The Level 10 GT takes a slightly different form then its brother in the series because it’s slightly smaller, but yet is said to be more powerful, with its awesome water cooling and all round cooling for that matter, and the ability to still fit heavy equipment inside. The big bonus with the GT compared to its predecessor, is its huge difference in the price tag. So let’s take a look.”

Cooler Master Storm Enforcer Mid Tower Chassis Review
     Mon, Jun 27 2011 | 3:50P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"A couple months back I took a look at the Cooler Master Test Bench V1.0, but it seems like it has been a while since I had a look at a case from CM. The last couple of cases I looked at were the HAF-X, CM690II and the Storm Sniper. The Sniper had some very cool features and a style all its own, keeping most of what made those cases a success while adding a fair bit of individualism to this new concept. Aesthetically this case looks like no other I have seen and almost looks like the case is in motion with the rounded design and stamped in designs in the steel. There were a ton of features in the chassis I named above, and some that while very nice to have, aren't needed in every case build, such as a built in fan controller. Not that Cooler Master overlooked the obvious and made this chassis any better or worse to work in than the other Storm chassis designs; it's just done a bit differently this time. The Bezel is different, and even has a door to cover the optical bays. The exterior shape and overall styling is different; even the way the tool-free features work is a bit different."

NZXT HAVIK 140 Heatsink Review
     Mon, Jun 27 2011 | 3:41P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The NZXT HAVIK 140 heatsink is the company’s first foray into the competitive air cooling market. It will be interesting to see if NZXT just cobbled something together or if they did some serious research into cooling modern CPUs."

Intel Z68 SSD Disk Caching Showdown
     Mon, Jun 27 2011 | 12:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we tested out Intel's 'Smart Response Technology' last month, we liked what we saw. But at $110 for a 20GB SLC SSD, we wondered if a larger, more cost-effective option could still make the best use of the technology. With that, we're pitting Kingston's SSDNow V+100 64GB drive, at $150, against Intel's, to see if we retain SRT's effectiveness.

Cooler Master Storm Spawn Gaming Mouse
     Mon, Jun 27 2011 | 12:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I have had many mice over the years. I've used Logitech, Microsoft Sidewinders, and most recently the MadCatz R.A.T. 7. I have not had the privilege to use a Cooler Master mouse until now though. Cooler Master is relatively new to the gaming mouse market. Their first gaming mouse was the Storm Sentinel in 2009. The Sentinel was hailed as a “game changer” by many who reviewed it. Now, two years later Cooler Master has launched the Storm Spawn gaming mouse."

Seagate ST31000524AS 1TB Hard Drive
     Mon, Jun 27 2011 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"In the last Hard Drive review I wrote I was by necessity mainly limited in my acoustic testing to a subjective listening test of how much Drive noise I was able to hear while the drive was seeking/writing. This was because my Radio Shack db meter was not able to measure any sound level differences while the Drive was in use inside my case over ambient case noise, even with the side panel open. Although, technically accurate, it was nonetheless frustrating to write that the previous drive I reviewed (Seagate ST3750330AS 750GB SATA HD) was in my usage under ambient sound levels, especially since I am sure most of my readers don't have 10 fans (6 case fans, 1 PS fan, 2 CPU fans, 1 video card fan) in their case, greatly muffling any Hard Drive noise there might be. To this end I have done some digging and provided the manufacturer supplied sound levels below. As you can see the Seagate ST31000524AS is even quieter than the Seagate ST3750330AS Hard Drive which was itself silent inside my personal wind tunnel (well-ventilated case)"

AMD Rejects BAPCo's SYSmark 2012 - Should We?
     Mon, Jun 27 2011 | 9:02A | Benchmarks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In a rare move, AMD has publicly ousted a leading industry benchmark, BAPCo's SYSmark 2012, released mere weeks ago. The company believes both that the benchmark is unfair in its weighting of scores, and also that it's irrelevant for the average consumer. We delve deep into these claims, and offer up our own opinions.

Pico Power Supply Backplate Review
     Mon, Jun 27 2011 | 9:01A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When you use a picoPSU in a case with space for a full ATX power supply unit (PSU) two questions can’t help but come up: how to plug the giant gap in the back, and where to mount the external plug. In the past I’ve just cut the back off a broken standard PSU and drilled a hole. While certainly functional, it’s clearly not ideal for everyone as it requires power tools, a sacrificial unit and tolerance for a less visually appealing final product. Fortunately there is a solution which allows a more polished look and alleviates the need for surgical skill -- sourced from Doug Kenyon, a fellow HTPC enthusiast who mentioned the plate’s existence on AVS Forum.

Mushkin Blackline Ridgeback 2000 MHz DDR3 8GB review
     Sun, Jun 26 2011 | 4:02P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Mushkin offers their dual-channel Blackline Ridgeback in 8GB kits at $125 (USD), and to spice that up .. it is offered as a 2000 MHz kit, with granted not the most sexy timings but at a CAS latency of 9 versus 2000 MHz versus two 4GB high-density DDR3 modules. At 125 USD , and that's 15.6 USD per GB, you can understand that this kit might be a nice alternative to low latency 1333 and 1600 MHz kits. Muskin even tops that off by a lifetime warranty on this product so all in all that can't be a bad deal, no Sir.

Corsair HS1A Gaming Headset Review
     Sun, Jun 26 2011 | 4:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we took Corsair's first gaming headset for a spin last fall, the HS1, we were left impressed by the fact that the company went for balanced audio instead of boomy bass, resulting in a refreshing listening experience. As they were USB-based, though, some who owned dedicated audio cards shunned them. The remedy? The HS1A.

Gigabyte 990FXA-UD5
     Sun, Jun 26 2011 | 4:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“With all the hype surrounding AMD's upcoming Bulldozer release, manufacturers have been scrambling to ship 990 and 970 chipset motherboards. However you look at it, AMD's delay with the new CPU architecture has at least allowed them to get all the new models ready in preparation for the upcoming launch. As usual, Gigabyte has their editions ready to fly and today we are looking at the 990FXA-UD5 see what changes this sleek and sexy motherboard compares to its predecessor, the 890FXA-UD5. The new board has some significant changes to let's jump right to it and take a closer look at the Gigabyte 990FX-UD5.”

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.
