Posted by: STAFF
a post to your own news section would totally be appreciated. If we`re sending our news to the wrong place, we apologize. Just send us a message with the correct address to the address below. Don`t forget that,Futurelooks checks out OCZ`s universal answer to SSD caching on any system ... *OCZ Technology?s Synapse Cache 64GB SSD Reviewed** * For those that don?t know, SSD caching (Intel Smart Response) is a feature built in to Intel Z68 Sandy Bridge motherboards where you can add a smaller volume SSD to your existing platter based hard drive to increase overall system performance. Users often experience a quicker more responsive system after doing this. That?s great if you have a Z68 system and don?t want to spend $200 on a new SSD to speed things up. But, what about users who don?t have an Intel Z68 based system? * * *"

C. TX750M PSU Review @ Vortez
     Thu, Dec 15 2011 | 4:01P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Corsair TX750M as the `M` suggests, is a modular unit by design utilising a single 12v rail and brags an 80 PLUS Bronze certification. Corsair`s RMA procedure is second to none and thus this PSU also grants piece of mind thanks to the 5 year warranty should you have the misfortune to encounter difficulties with this unit."

C. Vengeance 1500 Gaming Headset Review
     Thu, Dec 15 2011 | 4:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At first glance the overall feel of the fit and finish is really nice to hold and wear which is very important for a headset. With good quality plastic and a large padded headband, it`s also clear straight away that the ear cups are going to be comfortable and that the padding is more than enough. Interestingly, the 1500 features the soft fabric ear pads we prefer, while the `lower end` model, the 1300 does not; instead using the faux leather stuff seen everywhere these days. The Vengeance 1500 also features software support including Dolby Headphone which is fantastic. The interface is slick and fast with some nice graphics also being used to give everything a very up to date feel. This software is really the heart of the this package and should be the main selling point given how well it works, yet Corsair do not seem that excited about it for some reason. But to any potential buyer of this headset, just try listening without the software installed and you will see how well it works and frankly is needed to make this a recommended product."

Thortech Thunderbolt Plus 1000W PSU Review
     Thu, Dec 15 2011 | 11:19A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Very few of our readers are going to be familiar with the Thortech name as it hasn`t been around very long at all. A few may recognize the name as showing up while poking around a few of the online stores, but probably didn`t give them much of a thought. What most of you will be surprised to know is that Thortech is a subsidiary of GeIL. GeIL announced in 2010 that it would start offering power supplies under the Thortech brand. Since then, the company has offered two lines of power supplies - the Thunderbolt series and Thunderbolt Plus series. Today we are going to be taking a look at the Thunderbolt Plus 1000W power supply. It`s packed full of features that place it square in the eyes of many enthusiasts and looks very good on paper. One of the key features of the Thunderbolt Plus series is that it offers an interactive 5.25 display that will tell you just about everything you`d like to know about the power supply such as load, efficiency, fan speed, temperature and more. Keep reading on to find out if GeIL`s latest and greatest is all bark and no bite or if it lives up to what it says it can do."

HP Omni 220-1080qd Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Thu, Dec 15 2011 | 9:03A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The HP Omni 220-1080qd is one of the few all-in-one desktop PCs that doesn`t come equipped with a capacitive touch screen. Rather, HP has designed a desktop with a better Core i7 CPU, discrete GPU, and USB 3.0 interfaces?which is more than most all-in-one PCs have to offer at this price point. That said, the system isn`t perfect, but it`s not too far away either.?"
