Ikonik Ra2000 Liquid Full-Tower Chassis Review @ Techgage
     Fri, Dec 23 2011 | 11:12P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Self-contained liquid CPU coolers have become a dime-a-dozen (figuratively, of course), but it`s still not often when we see a chassis released with liquid cooling built-in. We`re taking a look at one such option here, from Ikonik. So let`s see what the Ra2000 Liquid is made off, and see if it deserves its $400 price tag."

Vantec NexStar 3 SuperSpeed 2.5 SATA to USB 3.0 External Hard Drive Enclosure @ Review the Tech
     Fri, Dec 23 2011 | 9:38P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Up for review today I?ve got another USB 3.0 enclosure, this time from Vantec. It?s called the NexStar 3 SuperSpeed External Hard Drive Enclosure and it?s certainly a very nice looking product. Looks aren?t everything though are they, so that?s why this review, to see how it performs. I?ve put it up against a few other enclosures I?ve got on hand, so continue on to see how it does.

NZXT Avatar S Laser Mouse Review @ APH Networks
     Fri, Dec 23 2011 | 6:45P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Stereotypes can be quite hilarious. Whether we like it or not, we tend to know a few of these racial tendencies for every race out there. Heck, it doesn`t even need to be a race. I can say the phrase, old married couple, and a small list in your head would have already put out: McDonald`s in the early morning, tea in the afternoon, and going to bed at 8pm. I can say the word glasses, and already you think of nerds with no social life and terrible personal hygiene. Even certain hair colors conjure up rich stereotypes we all love to make fun of. Take blonde, for example. We all know that the main stereotype orbiting around blondes is they tend to be all looks, and no brains. As offensive as this may seem, stereotypes are what they are, because they usually offer some sort of truth behind them. From my personal experience, I have had my fair share of encountering blondes that are well, for lack of a better term, blonde. I even have knowledge of a few blonde friends that decided to dye their hair a different color to avoid this presumptuous and unfortunately funny first impression. So when I was asked to review NZXT`s new mouse, the Avatar S, I simply could not stop drooling at the hot sleek design of the product. Taking one glance, one could very well say that the Avatar S has definitely has the looks. But does it have the books? Read on to find out!"

SilverStone EC03 USB 3.0 PCI-E Adapter
     Fri, Dec 23 2011 | 4:09P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you`re wanting to pick-up a USB3-enabled drive enclosure like the SilverStone TS07 or RVS02 (or any other USB 3.0 peripherals), but don`t have any USB 3.0 ports on your system, the SilverStone EC03 can provide two USB 3.0 ports from a PCI Express x1 slot."

Mushkin Chronos 60GB Review
     Fri, Dec 23 2011 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Mushkin Chronos 60GB SSD still does offer good read and write performance for its price, especially when compared to mechanical drives. The drive also utilizes the SATA III 6Gb/s interface as well as a Sandforce 2281 controller. For those still using the SATA II 3Gb/s interface the drive is backwards compatible, although you will take a performance it. In the end I`d say that the Mushkin Chronos is a decent SSD, and well worth its cost."

TechREACTION.net Review: Nexus Prominent 5
     Fri, Dec 23 2011 | 11:36A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Nexus Prominent cases are fitted with a noise absorbing foam material which does a good job. It is a premium dense foam-rubber-like material fitted on the panel behind the motherboard and a nice wave foam layer on the opposite side panel. These materials will add the extra bit of quietness people could be looking for in their system. It will not suppress a 70dB fan and make it silent, but it will take an already quiet system and hush it further. If you?ve got a drive that whines, the Prominent will help alleviate that sound from drilling slowly through your skull."

Linksys E4200 Dual-Band N Router - BCCHardware
     Fri, Dec 23 2011 | 11:13A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The E4200 router has a USB 2.0 port at the rear of the unit and Linksys has enabled quite a robust set of features to this port. You can plug almost any USB storage device into the E4200 and it will be recognized as a drive and you`ll then have access to it from anywhere on your network. You`ll need to choose to share it - or a specific folder on the drive in order for it to show up, but this is done quickly and easier on the Storage - Disk page. . ."

HP TouchSmart 320-1050 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Fri, Dec 23 2011 | 9:26A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The HP TouchSmart 320-1050 is an all-in-one touchscreen desktop PC that is perfect for users looking to buy their first touchscreen PC. It offers really great performance and a sleek design all without costing too much money. It does, however, lack things like a TV tuner and HDMI ports, so it`s not without flaws.?"

Posted by: STAFF
Enermax Revolution87+ 850W Power Supply Review @ HardwareHeaven.com Not everyone can afford 1000w+ units, especially Platinum certified products which always come with a premium so to cater for the mainstream Enermax has just released their Revolution87+ 850w model and we have one on our test bench today. Can it impress us as much as their new enthusiast models?"

Ineo I-NA309D Pro USB 3.0 to SATA Dual Bay RAID Enclosure Review @ Bigbruin.com
     Fri, Dec 23 2011 | 9:08A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I ran a couple of runs of Crystal Disk Mark on a 300GB Raptor, and the Ineo Technology I-NA309 D Pro Super Speed USB 3.0 enclosure on the fast setting was roughly 10 Mbps faster on the read and write than the Raptor. I was blown away by this, and I am now going to use this drive enclosure and the two drives as my main storage for all of my games and music."

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.
