HIS Radeon HD 6850 IceQ X Turbo 1GB Video Card Review
     Tue, Apr 19 2011 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Most of the AMD Radeon HD 6850 graphics cards that I have looked at recently have been based on the reference design of the card and tended to produce a bit of heat. The HIS Radeon HD 6850 Turbo (H685QNT1GD) is actually built on a shorter length PCB coupled with the IceQ cooler to try and combat heat and give the card a killer look. With a stock 820MHz GPU clock speed 1GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 4400MHz, the HIS Radeon HD 6850 Turbo is aimed squarely at the gaming market, and rightfully so because we as gamers demand awesome graphics, and we are only going to go out and spend our money on a high end card that we know is a proven winner and will let us squeeze every last frame rate we need and deserve out of a video card..."

Thermaltake Level 10 GT Full Tower PC Case Review
     Tue, Apr 19 2011 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With the Level 10 GT I didn’t find a whole lot I did not like. Most were just preference nit picking like the orientation for pre-made power cable for the hot swap bays. Only real issue I can think of the issue for those with long body power supplies. The install was very easy; running power cabling was a snap. I love the fact that the LED lighting can be turned off. I like this feature on all cases that have it mainly for the fact my desk is not far from where I sleep...."

Intel P67 Motherboard 5-Way Shootout
     Tue, Apr 19 2011 | 5:07A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Chipset delays aside, Sandy Bridge has been one of the most anticipated and impressive releases we've seen from Intel in recent years. The first wave of processors have demonstrated superior efficiency as they swept aside considerably more expensive processors of previous generations, while consuming even less power. The Core i5 2500K and Core i7 2600K models have also delivered effortless overclocking potential without going for excessive price premiums. For those building a new high-end rig from the ground up, the LGA1155 platform looks like the way to go and there are already quite a few exciting new P67 motherboards to choose from. Read on as we check out the Asrock P67 Extreme6, Asus P8P67 Deluxe, ECS P67H2-A2, Gigabyte P67A-UD7 and MSI P67A-GD55.

ASUS P8P76 WS Revolution motherboard
     Tue, Apr 19 2011 | 4:07A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Upper segment-motherboards have developed a tendency to look like space stations or Starcraft structures lately. If they don’t, the basic presumption is that they must be cheap. Therefore, it was with a great deal of relief that we received a top-notch motherboard that looks moderate, while being replete with features. ASUS’ WS series, which is shortened for Workstation, targets users who find quality and stability to be the key features to any PC, while enabling the same PC to use its performance to the max on said motherboard. As the new series of Sandy Bridge CPUs has recently been introduced, it was only logical to expect ASUS to send a new WS motherboard our way as well…

ASUS GeForce GTX 550 Ti DirectCU TOP Overclocked Video Card Review
     Tue, Apr 19 2011 | 2:07A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The mid-range market is really heating up and one of the best things about these mid-range cards is that companies get the chance to attack the models instantly unlike higher end models such as the new Dual GPU offerings from both NVIDIA and AMD. The latest mid-range card to greet us comes from ASUS and is part of the new NVIDIA GTX 550 Ti series. The model we're looking at today is part of both the DirectCU and TOP series and carries with it both a healthy overclock and upgraded cooling system."

Gigabyte GA-E350N-USB3 Mini ITX Motherboard
     Tue, Apr 19 2011 | 1:14A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"After being in development since 2006, AMD was finally able to debut their Fusion APU at the 2011 CES. If you haven’t been keeping up with processing technology as of late, APU stands for Accelerated Processing Unit and is AMD’s CPU + GPU combo chip. Today we are going to be taking a look at a motherboard / APU combo from Gigabyte, the GA-E350N-USB3. The E350N utilizes the Brazos platform and more specifically, the Zacate APU which features a dual-core Bobcat CPU operating at 1.6 GHz and AMD Radeon HD 6310 graphics."

Posted by: STAFF
"Consumers who like to upgrade their computer(s) often, or even upgrade once for that matter, have a need for a product like the one I'm about to show you here. Have you ever had a computer crash on you and you lost all your data? Sucks huh? There is nothing more gut-wrenching then losing a decade's worth of your irreplaceable children's pictures because you didn't take the few minutes once in a while to back them up."

Zotac Zbox HD Blu-Ray All-in-One Mini-PC
     Tue, Apr 19 2011 | 1:12A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Not everyone wants to build their own HTPC, and despite the relative small size of most HTPC cases compared to a full tower for example, they're still fairly large next to most other electronic devices in a home theater environment. The Zotac Zbox on the other hand, is a fully functional HTPC in a very slim size; about the same as the average netbook. Offering a choice of barebone or pre-configured hardware, the model we have for review today includes the Intel Atom D525 dual-core CPU, nVidia ION2 graphics, 250Gb hard drive, 2Gb of memory and a slot-loading Blu-Ray drive. Add to that Gigabit wired and 802.11n wireless networking, 6-in-1 card reader, HDMI, USB3 and eSATA, and you've got a huge amount of functionality packed into one tiny device."

Promise SmartStor NS4700
     Tue, Apr 19 2011 | 1:11A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“As an alternative to general purpose Windows or Linux servers, Promise SmartStor NSx7000 appliances have much to offer. They’re well built, quick and very configurable, with lots of options beyond simple network storage sharing. The NAS market, however, is highly competitive and when it comes to configuration and management the Promise solution comes in second best. It does what it’s supposed to, but others do it better and require far less technical expertise to fully exploit what NAS appliances like the SmartStor NSx700 have to offer.”

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.
