ASUS EAH 6990 Review
     Fri, Apr 29 2011 | 9:29P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the EAH 6990, ASUS presents its first AMD Radeon HD 6900 series graphics card featuring two GPUs. The successor of the already very powerful Radeon HD 5970 lets us all hope for another superb graphics card with excellent performance because it's a fully functionnal dual Cayman XT (aka Radeon HD 6970) with high clock speeds. We expect really good DX11 performance and we're going to show you if the Radeon HD 6990 performs as well as an HD 6970 CrossFire setup.

ASUS E35M1-I Deluxe Motherboard Review
     Fri, Apr 29 2011 | 9:28P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
That drive to produce excellence no matter what the product has helped them to secure an enviable reputation as one of the PC world's top manufacturers. Even the HTPC market is in their sights with ASUS aiming squarely at the compact home cinema market with their brand new E35M1-I Deluxe. Using the ultra compact ITX form factor the board packs a truck load of current features like USB 3.0, SATA 6.0Gbps (courtesy of AMD's Hudson M1 chipset) and AMD's low power Zacate E350 dual core processor.

Antec Six Hundred V2 Mid-Tower Gaming Case Review
     Fri, Apr 29 2011 | 9:26P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"One entry in the budget gaming category is the Antec Six Hundred V2 Mid-Tower Gaming Case. The Six Hundred V2 comes with all of the same features as the original Six Hundred, but with one minor change, there is a 2.5" HDD hot swap bay instead of a 3.5" hot swap bay. The Six Hundred has 3 external 5.25" drive bays and 6 internal 3.5" drive bays. The rear has 7 expansion slots. The Six Hundred has excellent cooling with a large 200mm TriCool blue LED fan on the top and one 120mm TriCool blue LED fan on the rear. HDDs can be front loaded with a removable panel that can also house 2 more 120mm fans, if needed."

Posted by: STAFF
The ISK-100 is the most compact Mini-ITX chassis from Antec, but still allows for two 2.5" drives to be installed along with your choice of Mini-ITX board. We fill the case with hardware to check if things are too close for comfort or if the small dimensions of the ISK-100 leave a good impression.

The 9265 & 8 Micron C300 SSDs
     Fri, Apr 29 2011 | 9:19P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Welcome to our follow up of the LSI 9265-8i MegaRAID Card, an eight-port PCI Express SATA+SAS RAID Controller that is configured for 6Gb/s devices. Our first LSI review concentrated on RAID 0 speed and performance and the response prompted our further testing of the LSI in a RAID 5 environment. Take a look as we explore the in-depth the performance of the 9265 as it tackles an array of 8 solid state drives. RAID 0 is the 'big dog' when it comes to flat out performance. In previous generation RAID cards, the maximum sequential throughput and random I/O would make it impossible to match the speed of RAID 0 with a RAID 5 setup. The stage is changing, however, as the dual core ROC LSI2208 of the the 9265 raises RAID 5 performance to new levels.

Crucial Unleashes the M4 SATA 3 SSD To The Public
     Fri, Apr 29 2011 | 9:19P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just a quick note to pass on that the Crucial M4 SSDs, as reviewed here, have been released to the public as of this morning and can be purchased from Crucial direct by following this link! Of particular interest just might be the pricing as we are seeing great prices for the 64GB, 128GB and 256GB at $129, $299 and $499 mark which seems to be a low for the new gen SATA 3 family. Prices have gone up a bit since their original estimate (shown below) but this SSD is still the lowest available for generation, performance and price. In fact, the Crucial M4 512GB SSD comes in at around $999 where its competition can be found at Newegg in the 480GB capacity for $1899.

If you're even half the nerd that I am you might eventually have wondered what's inside your notebook, where the irritating noise of a fan suddenly came from when watching Youtube vids, and very maybe you might have wondered why your notebook sometimes gets so hot! I'm a bit being sarcastic here as I perfectly know most of our readers indeed do understand what's going on inside the metal or plastic housing, yet still what's there to do when temps keep on rising? Notebook coolers to the rescue! Todays we'll be having a look at one of the more performant notebook coolers you'll stumble against upon your search for the perfect solution, or did we just find it four you? Read on!

Intel DH67BL MicroATX Motherboard Review
     Fri, Apr 29 2011 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Purchasing the Intel DH67BL MicroATX motherboard isn't a sacrifice in quality. The DH67BL has all the necessary features that a HTPC or anyone needing a small powerful computer would need. The DH67BL has the LGA1155 socket that supports the newest Intel Core i7/i5/i3 Sandy Bridge processors. There are four 240-pin DIMM slots that support DDR3 memory modules at 1333MHz and 1066MHz speeds. Maximum supported memory is 32GB. The Intel H67 Express Chipset has the Intel Rapid Storage Technology capability. This allows RAID 0,1,5, and 10 hard drive configurations. Onboard are DVI-I and HDMI connections to allow processors with Intel HD Graphics."

Patriot SuperSonic 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive
     Fri, Apr 29 2011 | 4:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The one thing that worried me is when bench testing using the Flash Memory Toolkit, the drive casing became quite hot, too hot to touch at one point. While this did not happen during regular use, if you are doing a large volume transfer there is a possibility that your drive will heat up so I would use caution. The fact that the casing is made of aluminum could be the reason for the higher external temperature since the drive does employ a quad channel design on the inside and the case is acting as a passive cooler for the chips."

XFX Pro Series Core Edition Power Supplies
     Fri, Apr 29 2011 | 12:03P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The XFX Pro Series Core Edition power supplies performed very well across the range. The DC voltage load regulation was excellent from 20% to 100% DC loading and in combination with very low AC ripple/noise levels means excellent DC quality on all rails on all three power supplies. The 3V3 and 5V0 rails dipped a little lower than I would have liked but they still remained well within the limits set down by the ATX12V V2.2 specification and won’t prove to be a problem when the biggest dip below ideal rail voltage was only 0.09V."

AXLE GT 430 Classic
     Fri, Apr 29 2011 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The AXLE GT 430 performed great. It didn't overclock past the ASUS variant, but it did run with a lower temperature while operating approximately as quiet as the CPU heat sink fans. The gaming potential is there somewhat, as long as graphics quality or frame rate isn't important — minimalism is key for gaming with this. High definition content handling is a great use for this card, as it is tailored to media workloads. This card also works great as a dedicated PhysX processor and can take the load off the CPU when decoding media content, while also completing the job faster!"

HIS HD 6870 IceQ X Turbo X Video Card
     Fri, Apr 29 2011 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
HIS HD 6870 Turbo cards are factory overclocked with a warranty. Now let me clarify something here. I said the HIS HD 6870 Turbo which is what we reviewed recently. HIS's Turbo X takes things to an entirely new level. The HD 6870 reference clock is 900MHz on the core and 4.2GHz on the memory. The HIS Turbo version of that card tweaks things to 920MHz on the core and 4.48GHz on the GDDR5 memory. With the IceQ X cooler, HIS takes things to the X level and jacks their card up to 975MHz on the core and 4.6GHz on the memory. That's quite a bump.
