PowerColor HD6950 PCS+
     Fri, May 27 2011 | 9:05P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Speaking of overclocking, that is another aspect that the PowerColor HD6950 PCS+ was able to shine in, the GPU clock speed. While it was unable to break the 1GHz clock speed, it did come damn close, ending up at 970MHz. While the GPU clock speed was able to get quite high, I was unable to push the memory speeds any further than 1330MHz, but when you look at a reference design HD6950, you are going to find 800MHz and 1250MHz as the stock speeds. Which means that over a reference design card, I actually ended up with a 21% overclock on the GPU and a 6% overclock on the memory, not too shabby.

ECS H67H2-M Black Deluxe review
     Fri, May 27 2011 | 8:50P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the ECS H67H2-M Black Deluxe. This Micro-ATX based motherboard is 244mm x 244mm, you just pop in a Core i7 2600 and you'll have one of the fastest systems your money can get you (baseline performance that is), as such we have tested this product with much satisfaction.

Cooler Master Elite 371 Midtower Case
     Fri, May 27 2011 | 8:35P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Today we are going to take a look at another case that was introduced at CES 2011. The Cooler Master Elite 371 was on display at Cooler Master's suite at the Bellagio, so we had a chance to preview this one a few months back. My impression at the time was that it looked like a solid budget case but now we will get to put it through the paces for a full evaluation."

Gigabyte Z68X-UD3H-B3 Motherboard
     Fri, May 27 2011 | 8:05P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Gigabyte released 11 motherboard models based on the new Intel Z68 chipset. With prices ranging from USD 120 to USD 350, there is a model for any kind of user. We've already seen one of the most expensive models, the Z68X-UD5-B3. Today we are taking a look at one of the mid-range models, the Z68X-UD3H-B3, which supports the Virtu technology."

GIGABYTE Z68X-UD3H-B3 (Intel Z68) Motherboard Review
     Fri, May 27 2011 | 7:50P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Just before the launch of the Intel Z68 chipset, we had the opportunity to preview the Z68X-UD7-B3 and Z68X-UD3H-B3 Motherboards in Taiwan. Earlier this week we did a full review on the GIGABYTE Z68X-UD7-B3 Motherboard and if you're interested in a really top end Z68 board, I'd highly recommend checking that review out, especially if you're interested in a multi GPU setup. The extremely feature packed Z68X-UD7-B3 does come at a cost, though, that's higher than other Z68 boards on the market currently and if you don't need all the bells and whistles that are associated with the model, then we might have exactly what you need today."

Logisys PS350MA Power Supply Review
     Fri, May 27 2011 | 7:05P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Logisys PS350MA, targeted to small form factor (SFF) computers, measures only 4.9 x 2.5 x 3.9 inches (125 x 63.5 x 100 mm) (W x H x D). This unit raises several red flags as being a really bad product. First, it uses the SFX12V form factor, but the manufacturer is not aware of that, calling it a "Micro ATX" power supply. Second, it is sold as being a 350 W unit; however, the power supply label says that 350 W is the peak wattage, and the "average output" is 250 W. And, third, the label and product specification found online says the product only works at 220 V/50 Hz, but the unit clearly has a 110 V/220 V switch. Let's see if our suspicions hold true or if this unit will surprise us."

Performance Test with Intel Sandy Bridge Graphics Driver
     Fri, May 27 2011 | 6:50P | Chipset | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With Sandy Bridge Intel managed to catch up to the AMD and NVIDIA entry level graphic performance. With this step comes a new challenge for the driver programmers to catch up, patching for new and old games and keep the compatibility up, what was quite an issue in the past. With Intel promising improvement in this area, HT4U.ne takes a look at driver version 15.22.1.64.2361.

Microlab SOLO6C Powered Stereo Speakers Review
     Fri, May 27 2011 | 6:35P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Microlab are a company operating out of China that we had simply never heard of up until now, which does seem strange because they are rather good at what they do. But more on that later. In the world of Hi-Fi audio small sized stereo speakers for a couple of hundred go by the dozen. In fact, there are so many options out there that it's nearly impossible to hear everything on offer when making a decision. Luckily, however, in the world of multimedia audio we do not have nearly the amount of confusion to deal with. In fact, we cannot think of any system we have tested to even compare the Microlab SOLO6C against."

Posted by: STAFF
PowerColor's HD 6670 uses a full-height dual-slot thermal solution to deliver outstanding idle and load temperatures. The reference clocked card with 1 GB of GDDR5 memory offers decent performance for the budget oriented gamer at resolutions up to 1680x1050.

Moneual MonCaso Sonamu G100 Case Review
     Fri, May 27 2011 | 5:50P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The MonCaso Sonamu G100 is a small form factor (SFF) case from Moneual, which comes with a 350 W power supply and promises zero consumption when in standby mode, thanks to a relay that completely removes the power supply from the power grid when the computer is turned off. Therefore, this case is sold as having an "environmental-friendly design." The problem, however, is that the manufacturer decided to use one of the worst power supplies available on the market, the Logisys PS350MA, which presents efficiency below 80%, thus creating a big contradiction. Read on."

Memory maker GeIL will be branching out
     Fri, May 27 2011 | 4:29P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Memory maker GeIL will be branching out into the gaming peripheral industry under the brand name EpicGear. Their first product will be, surprise surprise, a gaming mouse. According to EpicGear, this isn't just any other gaming mouse with lights and a gazillion buttons. The EpicGear MeduZa will be first in the world to incorporate Hybrid Dual Sensor Technology - marketing-speak for both optical and laser sensors. A switch on the underside will allow on-the-fly changing between optical, laser, and HDST (combined) sensor modes. According to them, HDST combines the speed of laser sensors and the stability of optical sensors to provide the best experience, reducing the problems of jitter, skip and drift.

Crucial m4 256GB SSD Review
     Fri, May 27 2011 | 4:29P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Crucial announced worldwide availability of its next-generation solid-state drive late last month. Known simply as the "m4," the company's latest entry is hailed as the successor to its award-winning RealSSD C300, promising to deliver more speed and higher capacities. Despite those claims, we can't help but feel the m4 has some big shoes to fill. On top of excelling at sequential throughput, the C300 provided strong random performance when working with files of all sizes, making it a well-rounded contender. However, it's been more than a year since the RealSSD C300 landed, and a lot has changed in that time. Above all, the latest SandForce SATA 6Gb/s controllers have been a real game changer. Considering its intended price point, we shouldn't expect the m4 to dethrone the OCZ Vertex 3 and perhaps not even Intel's SSD 510. Nonetheless, we could be in for a pleasant surprise if Crucial's newest contender delivers performance in excess of what the RealSSD C300 did in its heyday, so let's press on and find out what the m4's made of.

Radeon Gardenshed DRM + Gallium3D Benchmarks
     Fri, May 27 2011 | 4:28P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"It has been about a month since we last delivered ATI/AMD Radeon Linux benchmarks comparing the performance of the open-source driver against the high-performance proprietary driver. Since that point there's been various improvements to the Mesa/Gallium3D driver and there's also been the merge of the latest Radeon DRM code for the next kernel, which will likely be called the Linux 3.0 kernel, but in the DRM pull request was referred to as Gardenshed. Here are these benchmarks on several different Radeon graphics cards."

In-Win BUC PC Gaming Case Review
     Fri, May 27 2011 | 4:27P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The In Win BUC gaming chassis is a very well built steel computer case that has a simple layout and feel, yet the case still offers a variety of useful features normally found on more expensive cases. Having features like the "EZ-swap" or Hot-Swap storage drive bays with a lockable door, SuperSpeed USB 3.0, the convenient utility tray on top that gives you a place to easily connect headsets, cameras, smartphones and external storage drive or even the fantastic build quality is something you usually can't find in a case that is $89.99 after rebate. If you like the "shield" appearance of the BUC then..."

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.
