?No matter how you look at it, the Canon REALiS SX80 Mark II business projector is anything but typical. It offers unusually advanced control over color, making it of particular interest to anyone who needs to get onscreen color just so.?"

Kingston HyperX Genesis PC3-12800 16GB Kit Review
     Thu, Dec 22 2011 | 11:13A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we`re actually checking out another kit in the HyperX Genesis series which is the entry level HyperX series. The particular kit we`re looking at is, like most other kits we`ve looked at lately, a Quad Channel kit designed for the new X79 platform that we`ve been looking at heavily. To check the specifications on the kit, though, and find out exactly what we`re dealing with, we headed over to the Kingston website and the 1600MHz DDR kit comes with a 9-9-9-27-1T setup. These are ok timings; they`re not super tight, and considering the speed they`re probably a little on the looser side of things. It`s ultimately what the Genesis series is all about, though."

     Thu, Dec 22 2011 | 9:30A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The Asus U46SV-DH51 is another one of those ultrabook laptops that are coming out these days and it`s very similar to the Asus Zenbook that we reviewed a little while ago. This model has a lightweight aluminum design and a very bright, good quality display. It also has strong performance for its category, which is important because it`s rapidly becoming very competitive.?"

Vengeance is the name they have struck upon to wreak havoc among the gaming fraternity and while a full line up of gaming peripherals is about to be unleashed under the vengeance umbrella, Corsair have not forgotten their roots and have blessed a range of memory modules with the same title."

Corsair Vengeance LP 16GB DDR3-1600 Memory @ Benchmark Reviews
     Thu, Dec 22 2011 | 2:22A | Memory | PermaLink

The introduction of Intel`s X79 chipset with its quad-channel memory controller coincides nicely with historic lows in memory prices. Corsair`s recently introduced Vengeance line of peripherals includes products as diverse as headphones, mice, and even memory. Representing a lower-cost alternative to their Dominator memory line, Vengeance memory is offered with both high and low profile heat spreaders and several different speeds and timings.

Xigmatek Elysium Case Review
     Thu, Dec 22 2011 | 1:17A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The cooling performance was top notch and with overclocked hardware, it was either the best performing thermally or a very strong runner up. When you look the support for long video cards and just a massive internal volume, it`s easy to see how this case would be appealing. The top of the case can house not only the single radiator used in my testing, but a dual 120 mm one with no ill effect. I can say that I honestly wouldn`t be buying this case myself at this price point - perhaps at a reduced cost, I might spring for it simply for its large size, though definitely the non-window version. It`s a big case, but it isn`t a big bang for your buck.,,,"

Zowie Celeritas Mechanical Keyboard @ PureOverclock
     Thu, Dec 22 2011 | 1:07A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We`ve got the latest mechanical keyboard from gaming gear manufacturer Zowie, and it`s called the Celeritas. It`s geared to gamers, and this board features the vaunted Cherry switches. Interestingly, it has Cherry Brown switches, so you have the tactile feedback response unlike most gaming boards. Is this better? Can it work well both for gaming and typing? At a price of $100, the Celeritas is one of the more affordable mechanical gaming keyboards on the market. Let`s dive into the review and see what Zowie has to offer."

Everki 18.4-inch Advance Laptop Bag @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, Dec 22 2011 | 1:03A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When I picked up an 18.4 inch laptop I knew that I would deal with problems while traveling due to its size. What I didn?t expect was to have as much trouble finding laptop bags. While at CES last year I was visiting a company we had seen the year before called Everki and noticed that they had a whole selection of 18.4 inch laptop bags. With CES coming up soon I finally set aside the time to get in touch and give one a try. Maybe their Advance Laptop Bag for 18.4 inch laptops would make traveling a little more convenient for me in the future."

AMD Radeon HD 7970 3GB Video Card Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Dec 22 2011 | 12:20A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As good as the performance is with the stock clock speeds of 925 MHz core and 1375 MHz memory the true beauty of the Radeon HD 7970 was found when it was overclocked. We were able to push the card all the way up to 1165MHz core and 1625 MHz, which increased the performance of the card by over 20% in the benchmarks. With the Radeon HD 7970 overclocked to the max it was able to compete with the AMD Radeon HD 6990 OC and the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 590. It`s nice to see the flagship single GPU card of the current generation flirting with the dual-GPU behemoths...,,,"
