     Sun, Nov 20 2011 | 11:44P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The M17x offers excellent performance in an attractive chassis, and the flair provided by the customizable LED lighting is just icing on the cake. The only real flaw is the touchpad - but I?ve yet to come across a large gaming laptop that gets the touchpad right. If you have the itch for high-performance gaming laptop, the M17x R3 can help you scratch it."

     Sun, Nov 20 2011 | 6:41P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Finally we come to the big daddy of them all. The Crosshair V is without question the most impressive AM3+ board I have worked with to date. Installation was flawless, BIOS support was mature and quick, and the overwhelming amount of features integrated into this board is staggering. Not only are there a lot of features, but the design is so well thought out and implemented that there is no performance or stability degradation with all of the bells and whistles enabled and running."

Puget Systems Serenity Core i5 HTPC Review - Essentially Silent
     Sun, Nov 20 2011 | 8:35A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
To be honest with you, we had a hard time even noticing that the system was on, let alone running under a full load! The ambient room sound level was 31 dB even! Again, just as we saw in our previous Serenity review, the key selling point here is a silent running machine and for picky users like those that are interested in upgrade their home theater, that is a must have!"

SilverStone Strider Gold 1200W Power Supply Review
     Sun, Nov 20 2011 | 3:32A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The SilverStone Strider Gold 1200W power supply delivers good efficiency with clean DC outputs and good voltage regulation. Under normal operating conditions the power supply is very quiet. The Strider Gold 1200W comes with a very good assortment of all-modular cables that can support the latest CPUs and multiple, high-end video cards along with active PFC and universal AC input. My only minor complaint is the 3-year warranty period."

Mobile GPU Comparison: GeForce GTX 580M and Radeon HD 6990M
     Sat, Nov 19 2011 | 10:29P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I do think the GTX 580M provides the best overall user experience with support for Optimus switchable graphics as well the potential future-looking graphics performance seen in our Ultra quality settings test of Battlefield 3. The NVIDIA Verde driver program is also a benefit over what AMD has traditionally done in the mobile market. The NVIDIA driver team has been releasing mobile-compatible driver updates on a much more regular basis than AMD has been and in most cases are running version-for-version with the desktop parts."

PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
