Asus Radeon HD 6950 & 6970
     Wed, Mar 16 2011 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink

Mitsuba DC500T 5MP Digital Camera
     Wed, Mar 16 2011 | 9:03A | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Mitsuba has chosen to label this camera as being 12MP on several places on the box. While the true optical resolution of the DC500T is only 5MP, the 12MP figure is obtained through interpolation. Since the Mitsuba does this interpolation in the camera I suppose the 12MP figure is technically correct, but its use here is obviously meant to mislead the user into thinking they are getting a much higher end camera."

Corsair Vengeance 8GB Dual Channel DDR3 Memory
     Wed, Mar 16 2011 | 9:01A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Corsair Vengeance is priced at the lower end of the market attracting educated buyers to pick a brand they know they can trust. Corsair doesn’t blindside them with an inferior product, instead they have themselves a great gem here. Corsair Vengeance 8GB PC3-12800 CAS 9 Vengeance let’s you run all of those memory intensive programs where a 2X2GB kit wouldn’t cut it.

SilverStone RAVEN RV02-E Case Review
     Wed, Mar 16 2011 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes down to looking for a high end case with ample cooling and expansion options, the SilverStone RAVEN RV02-E is one route to definitely consider. The case looks seemingly simple from the outside but it’s a work of art inside and out. The 90° rotated motherboard with three 180mm Air Penetrator brings cooling performance I’ve never seen in a case before.

Dragon Age II GPU & CPU Performance Test
     Tue, Mar 15 2011 | 5:29P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Fans of the original game are no doubt excited about the recent release of Dragon Age II. A spiritual successor to the Baldur's Gate series, Dragon Age: Origins was the first game of its franchise. Unlike many others, BioWare was wildly successful in bringing this role-playing game to realization as a true multi-platform endeavor, spanning releases on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Mac, and of course, the PC. Given our ability to fit out PCs with vastly superior hardware, it pays off when playing Dragon Age II. Right off the bat BioWare released a free high-resolution texture pack download designed exclusively for the PC version. Just as important, the game exclusively supports DirectX 11 on the PC providing cutting edge rendering features such as tessellation, additional dynamic lighting, depth of field and ambient occlusion (SSAO). When compared to DX9 we can confirm that Dragon Age II looks considerably better using the more advanced renderer. With this in mind, we'll solely focus on DirectX 11 performance using over a dozen graphics cards capable of rendering Dragon Age II on all its visual glory. As usual we'll also be looking at CPU performance to see what kind of processor gamers are going to require to take full advantage of Dragon Age II.

Corsair AX1200 1200W Power Supply Review
     Tue, Mar 15 2011 | 5:29P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Six years ago, loading a true enthusiast machine down with all the hardware you could muster meant that you were pulling no more than 600W-700W, and finding a power supply to handle that kind of load was nearly impossible. Since then we've seen a huge change in the hardware that enthusiasts utilize in their rigs. SLI brought about multi-GPU systems that required more power than ever. While you have your selection of vendors for motherboards, memory, storage, and more, finding a power supply to fit the bill of such a machine produces few options. The last 12-18 months have brought some more selections, such as the Corsair Professional Series AX1200 that we are taking a look at today. The AX1200 is Corsair's flagship power supply. It is the biggest, meanest beast that they offer."

Corsair SP2200 2.1 PC Speaker System Review
     Tue, Mar 15 2011 | 5:28P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"We have looked at the high end SP2500 model previously and today we follow that up with a detailed evaluation of the mid-range SP2200 2.1 desktop speaker system. Rated for a constant 46 Watts RMS, featuring a compact subwoofer and priced at a level that is sure to draw in consumers it should make for a very interesting product."

Cooler Master Centurion 5 II Black and Red Edition: First Look
     Tue, Mar 15 2011 | 2:05P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So what is so special about this new Centurion case? To start with, the inside is not only black but red as well. Yep, this new Centurion sports a very bad-ass matte combo of black paint and red accented interior theme, which has been the basis of many a build and mods. Why isn't Cooler Master going to offer this case in the U.S.? We actually have no idea, but will have a ball reviewing it! (Which one never knows... if you show enough interest, we can forward CM the page-view count and maybe we'll see it released here after all!)

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti Tech Report
     Tue, Mar 15 2011 | 2:05P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, NVIDIA officially announces the launch of the new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti graphics card. This is part of their "reloading" programme. Back in 2010, they released the GeForce GTX 480 and GeForce GTX 460 graphics cards (remember the Tank and the Sniper?). This year, they replaced those two cards with the GeForce GTX 580 and GeForce GTX 560 Ti. Now, it’s time to "reload" the GeForce GTS 450...

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.
