Corsair recently updated their modular enthusiast TX PSU series and presented the TX V2.

Intel to release Z68 chipsets in first half of May
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 3:34P | Chipset | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel will release its Z68 chipsets in the first half of May, with Gigabyte Technology likely to be the first major motherboard maker to launch Z68-based products as soon as its embargo expires. Gigabyte's offerings will include its top-end GA-Z68X-UD7-B3 model.

Motherboard makers have also reportedly been informed that Intel will focus more on its Z- and H-series chipsets.

The share of P67-series motherboards will begin dropping once the Z68 is launched and the segment will gradually be phased out, with the P-series not being included in Intel's next generation chipsets.

MSI P67A-GD65 Socket 1155 Motherboard
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 3:34P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI’s mainstream offering to the P67 family is the P67A-GD65. According to the packaging the motherboard comes in it offers quite a bit in the form of overclocking, high quality on-board components as well as USB 3.0 and SATA III support. All the right things that a consumer are looking for. The packaging can say one thing but will its time on the test bench say the same? We will see.

HP Proliant MicroServer
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 12:03P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The MicroServer is a unique SFF server in the HP Proliant line that looks more like a small PC or multi-HDD NAS box. Powered not by Atom but a more powerful dual-core, 12W TDP AMD Athlon II, it is the smallest server we've ever seen. We gave our sample the complete SPCR treatment.

Jetway Mini-ITX NC98-525E-LF Motherboard MultiMedia
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 9:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Jetway is well know for their Mini-ITX motherboards. Based on the Intel Atom is this a perfect base for a small energy saving and environmental friendly HTPC or Home server system. Jetway provided us a D525 CPU and GT218 gpu motherboard and we will take it through a series of multimedia tests. Already served well in a previous review for Home Server we will only focus on the HTPC part.

Cooler Master Storm Spawn Gaming Mouse
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 9:00A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The CM Storm Spawn gaming mouse retails at $49, and it’s one of the few mice available today which is designed for those users who prefer a “claw” style grip while gaming. It’s loaded with a 3500 DPI optical sensor utilizing an anti-drifting feature and 32kb of onboard memory, but how does it stack up in the crowded market of aftermarket gaming peripherals?"

OWC Mercury Extreme Pro 6G 120GB Solid State Drive Review
     Tue, Apr 19 2011 | 4:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"In 2010 we were introduced to Other World Computing (http://www.macsales.com), a reseller specializing in Macintosh products. At the time OWC was moving beyond that of a simple retail / e-tail outlet and venturing into manufacturing their own solid state product line. Over the last few years we've seen many companies manufacture their own SSDs; some have been established in the SSD market and others have been a one product wonder. You would think those with history in the SSD marketplace would be the first to market when a new controller becomes available, but OWC proved that theory wrong when they released the SandForce SF-1200 based Mercury Extreme right at the beginning of the product cycle. To show that OWC was serious about their solid state product line, they also priced the Mercury Extreme at a competitive point and even held the crown on and off in 2010 as the lowest priced SandForce SSD on the market.

Intel Core i3 2100
     Tue, Apr 19 2011 | 4:02P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel designed the Sandy Bridge to replace the mainstream processors, so it is natural that the company has unleashed processors that range from the $100 all the way to $300. We have already reviewed the Core i7-2600K and the Core i5-2500K for the enthusiast and mainstream markets. Today, we are going to look at the other side of the spectrum--the $124 Core i3-2100, which is the cheapest Sandy Bridge processor available at the moment.

What you get from NZXT is a two meter long string of LED lights with a controller and mounting hardware that lets you customize the lighting effect seen through a case's side window. Available in lengths of either one or two meters - and with color choices of blue, green, orange, red, or white - there is bound to be a combination to suit just about any system.

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.
