Antec DF-85 Full Tower Case Review
     Thu, Apr 14 2011 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Antec set out to re-envision the gaming case with the DF-85 and I would say they were successful as it not only looks good but also is packed with features. From the 7 adjustable speed fans, filters and Fleet Swap everything is geared towards user friendliness. Looks are always suggestive I like the DF-85's aggressive appearance.

Asus SBW-06C1S-U Slim USB External Blu-Ray Writer Review
     Thu, Apr 14 2011 | 4:00P | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Ultimately, Asus' portable Blu-Ray drive has a lot going for it. USB bus power makes it convenient to pick up and take anywhere, the ultra-slim design and blue LEDs look fantastic, and the drive reads and writes everything from a simple CD-R's to recordable BD media reliably."

Radeon HD 6450 review
     Thu, Apr 14 2011 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Radeon HD 6450 addresses the low-level market yet AMD has decided to double the number of stream processors available to the Caicos core over previous products. The Radeon HD 6450 graphics card has a 40nm based GPU and packs a very decent 160 SPs, as well as 8 texturing units, 16 Z/Stencil ROP units and 4 color ROP units. It might make an excellent HTPC card with the full UVD 3 engine onboard as well.

Corsair TX750V2 750 Watt Power Supply Review
     Thu, Apr 14 2011 | 12:01P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Corsair recently refreshed their TX series of power supplies and asked us to take a look at both the TX850V2 and TX750V2. We recently gave an in depth look at the TX850V2. Since the TX750V2 is nearly identical to the TX850V2, we will be using the quick review format to take a look at the TX750V2. Corsair does a great job in supplying you with almost every feature that you can ask for with the TX series of power supplies. The TX750V2 comes with SCP, OVP, OCP, OPP, and OTP. As part of the refresh of the TX series, the TX750V2 has gained some efficiency over its predecessor and is now 80Plus Bronze rated. The unit boasts ATX V2.3 support and is also rated for 100% continuous output at 50C."

Seagate GoFlex Slim 320GB
     Thu, Apr 14 2011 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Seagate GoFlex Slim 320GB portable drive caught us a little off guard when it arrived. We weren't sure what to expect, but in the end we found ourselves pleasantly surprised to find a portable drive that was fast, lightweight, small and looked good. Usually, you can't find a way to blend all those features together without making sacrifices along the way, but that doesn't appear to be the situation we have here today. In order to take full advantage of this drive you really need to have a USB 3.0 interface! With CrystalDiskMark we saw the GoFlex Slim 320GB drive peak at ~120MB/s read and ~118MB/s write, so if you've been using a USB 2.0 drive and are stuck at ~31MB/s write speeds you'll see nice performance gains!"

Kingston HyperX T1 DDR3-1600 CL9 Review
     Thu, Apr 14 2011 | 9:02A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This review is going to explore the capabilities of the Kingston Hyper X T1 Performance series of RAM. This specific kit was designed to match the Gigabyte G1 Killer Series motherboard, however, its design, color and performance makes it a great grab for any enthusiast and a great addition to any motherboard. This kit is 12GB in size and runs at timings of 9-9-9-27, however, one can definitely obtain some great results by pushing the timings lower through overclocking. Aside from the abundance of RAM capacity, these modules are very aesthetically pleasing with larger heat spreaders that serve the purpose of functionality as much they do appearance.

ASUS GTX 590 Review
     Thu, Apr 14 2011 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the GTX 590 ASUS also has the NVIDIA dual GPU flagship in its portfolio. This card is based on the reference design except that ASUS marginally increased GPU and memory frequencies to get a very small advatage over their competitors. Never the less we're curious how this thing will perform in our benchmark parcours.

Configure Backup and Restore in Windows 7
     Thu, Apr 14 2011 | 9:00A | Beginners Guides | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In a previous article here on C.O.D. (Essential Windows 7 Tweaks: Part 1), I mentioned it's my opinion that users should disable the system restore features in Windows 7. Outside of the resources associated with running the task, I feel as though it provides a false sense of security for Windows Users and does nothing for users plagued by things worse than failed updates. So what is the answer? Windows 7 comes with Backup and Restore...

Cooler Master Storm Enforcer Gaming Tower
     Wed, Apr 13 2011 | 10:29P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new Enforcer has a look that would remind you of a futuristic Iron Man mask. More on the appearance later as I tend to run on at the mouth in these introductions. But the case does offer several features that I feel will benefit not only those on a budget but those short on space or just looking for a good case. Water-cooling, support for very long video cards and semi tool-less assembly is just the half of it.

Corsair SP2200 2.1 PC Speaker Review
     Wed, Apr 13 2011 | 10:28P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Overall, I really liked the SP2200 system. It was definitely designed for gamers! Bass Response on the SP2200 is definitely a shining moment for these speakers. Without a doubt they sound much better than most other "Gaming" or "PC" systems as Corsair has bass sent to the sub and it only handles the low end of the sound spectrum..."

Internet Explorer 10 - THE VERY FIRST LOOK
     Wed, Apr 13 2011 | 10:18P | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Yesterday Microsoft released the first platform preview for the upcoming Internet Explorer 10. The new version 10 preview, as with the Platform Previews for version 9, sports none of the browser's "chrome," or interface elements—just an underlying Web rendering engine. This preview allows users to look at how IE10 will render the much-newer HTML5 and CSS3 code.”

Lenovo IdeaCentre K330-11691AU
     Wed, Apr 13 2011 | 10:06P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Lenovo IdeaCentre K330-11691AU, an entry-level/mid-range general-purpose desktop, has the power to do some light multimedia work, including editing photos, transcoding the occasional video, and posting multimedia onto your blog site. It has all the right components to keep a family happy for the usual 5 to 7 years that they hold on to a PC, and it's not likely to "feel slow" until the tail end of its life.”

"Thermaltake is no stranger to cooling, it's what they do. Besides making world class CPU coolers, cases and power supplies, they also make some of the best notebook coolers on the market.

Radeon HD 4850 in CrossFire vs one Radeon

We’ve gone through all the advantages and disadvantages of SLI and Crossfire modes many times by now. We’ve even had an article on the Hydra chip present on MSI motherboards, which enables AMD and NVIDIA graphics to work in conjunction with more or less tangible results…

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.
