Posted by: STAFF
Since Hardware Secrets made us all look a little silly a few years ago, without access to the full test setups that the big sites and PSU manufacturers have, XSR has backed off its PSU reviews to instead make them unboxing-previews.

AZZA Toledo 301
     Thu, Jun 16 2011 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Azza Toledo 301 brings a lot of neat features to the table. It supports a 240mm radiator, so if water cooling is in your area of interest, than this is definitely an option to consider. It also features great tool-less solutions for the hard drives and optical drives. Sure, the wire management could have been better, due to the poor placement of the hard drive connectors, but in the long run it didn't impact performance - just aesthetics. The case is very upgrade-able, also being able to take on up to six additional fans."

Cooler Master Centurion 5 II
     Thu, Jun 16 2011 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"While looking at the back, one notices the red interior color, which is also present on the rear around the Motherboard I/O and expansion slots. Like many case manufacturers are doing now, CoolerMaster also chose to mount the PSU at the bottom of the case. The top panel of the case features the ability to accept either a 120mm or 140mm fan. The bottom of the case includes a fan hole if you choose to mount your PSU so the fan is facing downward and the case does include a fan filter for this application. The bottom also features round rubber feet to resist slipping.

Installing a Server OS in Intel Media Series Motherboards Guide
     Thu, Jun 16 2011 | 12:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Having seen Missing Remote’s reviews of the Intel Media Series motherboards it should be clear that they provide a solid foundation for a home theater PC (HTPC) build, but because they also include Intel NICs (network interface controller) there is a strong case to use one for your next server build as well. Unfortunately, Intel does not support server operating systems (OS) like Windows 2008 R2 (W2K8R2), which provides the foundation for Windows Home Server 2011 (WHS), so the installation process is more involved than it should be.

Revised GeForce GTX 590 Cards In June
     Thu, Jun 16 2011 | 7:11A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Remember the horror of GeForce GTX 590 going up in smoke while benching? Well, apparently NVIDIA has found a way to solve this issue completely without doing a quick fix through the drivers. The solution : a much needed hardware fix where the new inductors are added to the card. However, the new inductors are larger in size therefore a change to the baseplate is needed."

Gigabyte GTX 560 OC
     Wed, Jun 15 2011 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The only con for this card would be the overclocking capability in comparison to the cooling. The card had plenty of overclocking room thermally but was held back by a lack of voltage. Overclocking is a gamble and this note shouldn't be held against the card considering it did decently. The card itself wasn't at fault as it was designed for quiet stability and not designed for hardcore overclocking. The overclock results were approximately 11% gain on the core and 12% on the memory."

Corsair TX750 V2 750W & TX850 V2 850W Power Supplies
     Wed, Jun 15 2011 | 4:02P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The printed circuit boards on both power supplies look identical but there are some differences. The values of two main smoothing capacitors in the top left hand corner are different on both boards and there are differences on the secondary side on the right hand side. These differences are good to see because it shows the board has actually been upgraded to cater for the higher power. The capacitors are all good quality Japanese branded components of the more welcome 105°C working temperature rating."

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.
