ASRock Fatal1ty x79 Professional Intel 2011 Motherboard @ TechwareLabs
     Fri, Apr 27 2012 | 8:11A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the release of Intels X79 chipset and new 2011 socket it was only a matter of time before we saw Motherboards aimed at the gamer.X79 brings Quad Channel memory architecture and PCI 3.0 supporting the RAM and Video Cards respectively. Finally we get to take a look at the infamous ASRock Fatal1ty Professional Motherboard with the new X79 Chipset. The new X79 chipset brings PCI3.0 and Quad Channel Ram onto the Intel market. PCI3.0 is aimed squarely at gamers because of its throughput for the latest high end GPUs and this board has 4x of them. Fatal1ty has always been aimed at the power-user and gamer and they have (seemingly) not disappointed at first glance.All of thisleaves us excited to get our hands on the board. ASRock has given us this boiled down spec sheet which leaveus drooling..."

Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Apr 27 2012 | 7:32A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Z77 boards come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and prices. Just about every manufacture has a whole lineup of boards covering the whole range to make sure you can find what you are looking for. Gigabyte is no different; they have a whole selection of boards that will fit your needs. Today we are taking a look at their Z77X-UD3H, one of their budget boards. It may not be a high end board but it is still packed with features. I am curious how it will perform now that the cat is out of the bag with Ivy Bridge. Let?s jump in and see what it?s all about."

[Affiliates News] Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridg e: Performance Preview and
     Fri, Apr 27 2012 | 7:20A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While we get our fair share of evaluation products on NDA here at APH Networks, we don`t usually do performance previews on the stuff we get -- either we get the review done on time, or, well, we release it at our own schedule, haha. But here`s the deal: With Intel`s latest Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge processor sitting in our labs for the last little while, I am as excited to share our experience with you as much as you are interested in finding out how it performs in the benchmarks. Being the `tick` part of Intel`s `tick-tock` release cycle, what does the 22nm die shrink bring to the table today? To find out, here is a set of quick and dirty benchmarks along with a preliminary overclocking result to go. We will have a full review ready in a few weeks from now (Having a series of Electrical Engineering exams in a row last week certainly did not help). But for now, let`s not waste any more time, and move straight into the meat!"

A smaller less opposing version of the R3 arrives from Fractal Designs. As the name insinuates the Define Mini is just that, the kid brother of the Define R3."

[Tech ARP] Hard Disk Drive Myths Debunked! Rev. 5.0
     Thu, Apr 26 2012 | 5:57P | Beginners Guides | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This guide was written in response to the numerous fallacies about the hard disk drive that are still being propagated in many forum discussions. As you read through this guide, you may think that some of these myths may have been made up. We wished that was true. We collected these myths from various discussions we heard or read over time. So, let?s get down to basics and examine some of these common fallacies or myths and debunk them! Here are the changes in this update : - Added Myth #53 on a computer`s weight when information is added to the hard disk drive. - Added Myth #54 on overclocking the hard disk drive. - Added Myth #55 on dust affecting the hard disk drive and why it must be kept inside a proper PC case. We now have 55 HDD myths in this article!"

Asus Rampage IV Extreme Motherboard Review
     Thu, Apr 26 2012 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ROG Motherboards are highly regarded in the enthusiast world due in part to the loyalty of their fans, included features and availability since it doesn't do much good to have a great motherboard if you can't acquire one. These things aside, we like them because each board is designed and tuned for the hardware it intends to support.

Thermaltake Massive23 GT Review
     Thu, Apr 26 2012 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although laptop technology has improved dramatically over the last decade heat continues to be a problem for many laptops to cope with. Heat build-up in a laptop (as in any device) Can degrade both performance of the device and longevity of its components, and in laptops and notebook form factors can seriously effect battery life and processor and GPU capabilities degrading speed of operation and physically damaging components."

Posted by: STAFF
We already know what Intel has planned for this year when it comes to its Thunderbolt chips, but VR-Zone has managed to get hold of an updated roadmap covering what to expect for 2013 and we'll even give you glimpse at what Intel has planned for 2014. Intel is set to continue its strategy with two different solutions, but the company has decided to add a few new features and we should be able to expect lower cost for Thunderbolt in the future as well.

SuperTooth HD Bluetooth Speakerphone @ TestFreaks
     Thu, Apr 26 2012 | 7:20A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Laws they be a changing, and fighting the laws is just a rather fruitless and frustrating adventure I think. I know in my state there?s a law that just went into effect that basically says you can?t use your phone at all except with a hands-free device and that can be with a headset or something like a speakerphone. Today for review I?ve got the SuperTooth HD which is a Bluetooth speakerphone, but it?s much more than that as it can actually be your very own personal assistant. The SuperTooth HD is probably the most sophisticated or most advanced Bluetooth accessory that I?ve ever seen really. This product is mostly controlled by voice command for true hands-free access and communication, so read on?"

OCZ Fatal1ty 1000w Power Supply
     Thu, Apr 26 2012 | 12:41A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Jonathan Wendel, aka legendary gamer `Fatal1ty`, has made a name for himself that extends far outside the professional gaming arena he`s used to competing in. Jonathan has partnerships with five PC component and accessory manufacturers to release a variety of gaming oriented products under the `Fatal1ty` branding. One of these companies is OCZ which has a line of signature Fatal1ty branded power supplies. I had an opportunity to test out the 750W Fatal1ty power supply a little over a year ago - a supply which left me very pleased with it`s performance and functionality for the price. Recently, OCZ has expanded upon this series to add an even higher power model - the 1000W Fatal1ty supply which I have here today."

DiRT Showdown Preview (PC) @ HardwareHeaven.com Being released on the new Codemasters Racing label, fun is what the focus of today`s preview is all about and in DiRT: Showdown we dispense with the normal time trials and rally gameplay associated with the franchise, moving to a much more arcade experience which focuses on destruction."

ASRock Z77 Extreme 6 with Ivy Bridge @ Ocaholic
     Wed, Apr 25 2012 | 4:37P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASRock is one of the brands that already have Z77 based motherboards in their product portfolio. First of all we take a closer look on of their high-end boards, the Extreme 6. This motherboard packs many features and a very nice design. Of course we`re also curious how this board will perform compared to the Z77 based competition."
