In Win Dragon Rider Full Tower
     Thu, Jun 02 2011 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Building on the success and styling of the Dragon Slayer mATX case, In Win has manufactured the Dragon Rider. Coming in at a much larger size than the Slayer, the Dragon Rider is a full size tower case which, once again, is aimed at gamers. Specifically, it is for any gamers that are looking to build a power multi-GPU, or even water-cooled setup. The "dragon armor" look may appeal to many of you (us included), but it was the long list of feature that really won us over. Jam packed with fans, tool-less options and a warehouse worth of space, the Dragon Rider is right there with the HAF Series from Coolermaster or Antec's Dark Fleet.

Creative Labs' Pure Wireless Modularity Event Coverage
     Thu, Jun 02 2011 | 3:20P | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"On the 1st of June we flew north to Sydney for the second year running, in order to cover Creative Labs' very latest product launch at the Hilton Hotel. Last year we thought the Zii Sound D5 to be a fantastic wireless solution and were very interested to see how they had built on its strengths over the last twelve months. The event took place in a slightly different room at the same hotel this time around. The internal layout looked to be much the same, however, with a nice projector screen set up in the background and a few rows of chairs along with the latest products adorning the side walls. Once some picture opportunities were taken, we all sat down and began the presentation about how exactly the wireless technology showcased to us last year had improved and expanded and where exactly they had plans on taking this new product line to."

"While talking up the new 900-series of chipset and the branding for the upcoming AMD Llano APU launch, AMD did surprise us by showing off a bit more of the future than typical. Rick Bergman, general manager of the AMD Product Group, pulled a Trinity-based APU out of his pocket to demonstrate the conviction of staying on a "one-APU-per-year" cycle in the years to come."

MSI shows Gen3 PCIe, X79 Motherboard, LGA2011 socket
     Thu, Jun 02 2011 | 2:53P | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink

www.pcstats.com
"Even further out into the future, we saw a glimpse of an MSI engineering sample for the pending Socket 2011 processors from Intel, the MSI X79A-GD65. Supporting the upcoming Sandy Bridge-E processor family and a new quad-channel memory controller, you can clearly see the 2011 socket is HUGE and requires the memory slots to be divided up on either side of it. A lot will change more than likely between now and this boards release but it is cool to see a preview of what is in store for us!"

Auras Shagon ARC-118 Heatsink Review on Frostytech.com
     Thu, Jun 02 2011 | 2:48A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Been searching for a sub-145mm tall heatsink? If so, you'll want to pay close attention as Frostytech tests the Auras Shagon ARC-118 tower heatsink - it stands just 139mm tall!
www.frostytech.com
In the era of +160mm tall tower heatsinks, it's getting harder and harder to find a CPU cooler suitable for compact PC chassis.The Auras Shagon ARC-118 heatsink is built around four 6mm diameter copper heatpipes and a 50x100mm aluminum fin stack. The heatsink features an exposed heatpipe base and utilizes a single 2400-1000RPM 92mm PWM fan for all its cooling needs. Since this heatsink is equipped with a 92mm fan, noise levels tend to be moderate at stock speeds and whisper quiet at minimum RPM. Total heatsink foot print is 101x88mm, its weight is 460 grams.

Thermaltake Jing Heatsink Review on Frostytech.com
     Thu, Jun 02 2011 | 1:40A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.frostytech.com
www.frostytech.com

"Thermaltake's Jing heatsink is a dual fan tower style cooler that comes in a bright shade of nuclear green. The heatsinks' twin 128mm fans spin at 800-1300RPM in a push-pull orientation and create a modest amount of noise according to our real world sound measurements. Weighing a hefty 920 grams, the Thermaltake Jing stands 161mm tall and installs onto Intel socket 775/1155/1156/1366 and AMD socket AM2/AM3+ processors. While the Thermaltake Jing heatsink performed quite well on both the Intel and AMD reference charts at stock fan speed, the heatsink is best run with its front and rear fans rotating at 800RPM."

Jetway HI08 P67 motherboard review
     Wed, Jun 01 2011 | 5:21P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Amongst a long line of reviews on motherboards based on this chipset we have checked out premium brands mostly. There's always more in the market, Jetway for example ... a company making a lot of OEM products for other businesses, but they do have their own retail production line. Though hard to find in the stores these product promise good quality, features and often an excellent price, yep allow me to repeat that -- always an excellent price.

Icy Dock MB991IK-B Mobile HDD Rack
     Wed, Jun 01 2011 | 5:21P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"If Icy Dock MB994SP-4S is offering more than what you require then Icy Dock MB991IK-B is another alternative solution for you. In short Icy Dock MB991IK-B could be considered as a simplified version of Icy Dock MB994SP-4S which is only able to support a single 2.5" drive bay in 3.5" form factor instead of quad drive bays supportability in 5.25" form factor."

Posted by: STAFF
When you think of Sapphire you think of video cards and more recently motherboards. Along with expanding into the motherboard market, today, Sapphire introduced its newest product the Edge-HD Mini PC. With a dual core Intel Atom D510 and a Nvidia ION 2 GPU the Edge HD could be a perfect HTPC or PC for light use. The Edge HD gets its name from its thin size; everything is packed in a form factor that is smaller than the average home router. Considering its contents, the size is very impressive!

Arctic Cooling has also has a solution for your mobile computing companion, and today we sit down with the notebook cooler to put it to the gamer's test.

Posted by: STAFF
DirectX 11 API is already quite a mature piece of software that has been with us for a couple of years. Unfortunately for end-users its actual implementation in real life applications has been slow. But recently Blizzard has officially released its World of Warcraft: Cataclysm 4.1 Patch, which should attract just that bit more attention to this. Read on to find out why.

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.
