Posted by: STAFF
Apple announced a slew of new features to Apple?s upcoming operations system OS X 10.7 Lion at their recent World Wide Developers Conference. Apple actually showed off Lion last November, and the developer preview has been out since February, but that of course didn?t stop Apple from showing it off some more.

ASUS P9X79 Pro (Intel X79) Motherboard Review
     Mon, Dec 12 2011 | 2:42P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Out of the ASUS boards we`ve looked at which include the ASUS Rampage IV Extreme, the ASUS Sabertooth X79 along with the P9X79 Deluxe we linked to just above as well, the P9X79 Pro is actually the cheapest option out of the four boards we`ve checked out. What does the drop in price mean, though? We`ll find out about the performance soon enough, but the first thing we need to do is look at the package and while we`ve already checked out the box in our original preview, we didn`t get a chance to look at the contents of the box."

Enermax Platimax 1000W Super Overclock Edition Power Supply Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Mon, Dec 12 2011 | 2:42P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Enermax Platimax 1000W power supply is 80 plus platinum certified just like the rest of the Platimax lineup. The Enermax Platimax 1000W power supply, however, is unique to the rest of the series with its single 12V rail design.

The Platimax 1000W power supply is also ready for future technologies, capable of C6 and Hybrid states compatibility, as well as utilizing a 12P modular design for possibly upcoming CPUs and GPUs."

EVGA Z68 FTW Motherboard Review @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Dec 12 2011 | 2:13P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One area that we had a pleasure playing with was our overclocking experience with the EVGA Z68 FTW. With only a few minor tweaks in the UEFI BIOS of the EVGA Z68 FTW we were able to bring the Intel Core i7 2600K to a solid 4.8GHz overclock. That`s a solid 1.4 GHz over the stock clock speed of 3.4GHz that the Intel Core i7 2600K comes out of the box with. We were able to boot into Windows 7 64bit at 4.9GHz on the EVGA Z68 FTW but we started pushing the thermal limits on air cooling under full load..."

Gigabyte E350N-USB3 Fusion Mini ITX Motherboard Review
     Mon, Dec 12 2011 | 1:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I had high expectations for this E-350 motherboard, but the benchmark results didn`t give me what I was looking for from this board. The next Fusion APUs will provide better CPU performance as well as graphics and multimedia capabilities to help boost this platform into something consumers will drool over for their next home theater PC."

Getting Educated on the Status of PCI-E 3.0 @ Hardware Secrets
     Mon, Dec 12 2011 | 11:53A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Recently, motherboard manufacturers have been fighting their hardest to differentiate their products from one another in an effort to re-invigorate the stagnant PC business. A lot of this messaging has taken a very aggressive turn, where companies have blatantly called out or attacked competing products for not being the real deal or being up-to-speed."

Mac mini Computer Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Mon, Dec 12 2011 | 11:33A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The latest rendition of the Mac mini has the same stylish look as previous versions, but what`s under the hood has been revamped. Increased power and a new port have been added, while the CD/DVD drive and some software have been removed. We decided to take a look to determine whether this version is a move forward or a step back."

?The Samsung SH100 is a compact, point-and-shoot 14-megapixel digital camera that is cheap in price, but still offers good quality images. It has lots of shooting modes, wireless connectivity as well as a touchscreen display, but the lack of manual controls limits it use.?"

MSI X79A-GD65 (Intel X79) Motherboard Review
     Mon, Dec 12 2011 | 11:19A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The MSI X79A-GD65 isn`t all that new to us, as earlier in the month we did a full preview on it. Today, though, we get to dive a little deeper into the board and cover some of the stuff we couldn`t at the time, including the BIOS and the latest rendition of ClickBIOS II. There`s not a lot more to say about it all really. With our MSI X79A-GD65 in hand and our beloved new Intel i7 3960X, we can get into the performance of the new board fairly quickly. Before we do, though, we`ll just throw up all the pictures of the board from our original preview if you didn`t already look at that, or simply can`t be bothered now. We`ll also cover the few things we couldn`t at launch including the PCIe layout and of course, the BIOS."

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.
