 [LATEST]  OCZ Vector 150 120GB @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Jul 23 2014 | 10:36A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OCZ like most other manufactures cant just focus on just top of the line or budget products. Its important to cover a wide range of products to make sure you have something to meet all of your customers price and performance expectations. A good example of this was the Vector 150. They obviously also have the Vertex 450 that I reviewed previously. OCZ took the design that the Vertex 450 and original Vector both shared, kept the Barefoot 3 controller, and swapped out the NAND from 25nm IMFT MLC NAND to Toshiba`s 19nm MLC NAND. In other words the Vector 150 replaced the original Vector. OCZs Vector drives are their enthusiast focused drives while the Vertex drives are their top of the line mainstream drives. Lets dig in and see what sets them apart."

Thermaltake Urban T81 Full Tower Case Review
     Wed, Jul 23 2014 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Some desktop PC's were designed to push limits. Sometimes they push technological limits with the latest hardware overclocked to the bleeding edge while others tease the creative side such as building your system in an aquarium full of mineral oil, complete with bubbling diver and colorful fake coral.

How to Export all Excel Worksheets as CSV
     Tue, Jul 22 2014 | 4:02P | Beginners Guides | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I recently went on a hunt to try and figure out a way to export all my worksheets in an Excel document to CSV. The need arose simply out of frustration. Instead of copying cells and pasting as values into a new workbook then saving as CSV, I wanted a simple and logical approach that could save me time and frustration.

QNAP TS-470 Review
     Tue, Jul 22 2014 | 4:01P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
QNAP-TS-470 (12) If you are hunting around for your next NAS, you have plenty to pick from. With countless options, NAS makers are hard at work trying to ramp up their products and are jockeying for the number 1 spot on your short list. It seems like only yesterday that QNAP had introduced their X69(L) lineup and already we are being greeted by a more powerful X70 lineup. For the last few months, we have been putting QNAP's TS-470 to work in our office... the real question is, is it worth your dollar?

ASRock FM2A88X Extreme6+ Motherboard Review
     Tue, Jul 22 2014 | 4:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
FM2+ Motherboards sporting the A88X chipset started appearing in October 2013, but the improved functionality over the latest FM2 motherboards only became truly apparent with the release of the Kaveri line of APUs in January 2014. Add to that the recent release of AMD drivers supporting the Mantle API, and the FM2+ motherboards start to make sense. Benchmark Reviews has the AMD A10-7850K APU and a couple of FM2+ motherboards on hand. This article is dedicated to reviewing the ASRock FM2A88X Extreme6+ Motherboard to discover what sets it apart from the rest of the FM2+ crowd.

Intel SSD 2500 Pro 240GB Solid State Drive Review
     Tue, Jul 22 2014 | 2:37P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel’s solid state storage offerings are as diverse as they come. Although Intel started with only a single family of enthusiast-class drives a number of years ago, the company has since expanded its scope to include everything from ultra-high-end PCI Express-based offerings to small, entry-level SATA drives, meant to be used solely as a cache. The product we’ll be showing you here, the just-announced Intel SSD 2500 Pro, falls somewhere in the middle of Intel’s SSD line-up. The SSD 2500 Pro is the follow-up to last year’s SSD 1500 Pro series, which targets corporate and small-business clients. The drive shares much of its DNA with some of Intel’s consumer-class drives, but the Pro series cranks things up a few notches with support for advanced security and management features, low power states, and an extended management toolset.

Intel Pentium 20th Anniversary Edition G3258 CPU Review
     Tue, Jul 22 2014 | 2:37P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel announced earlier this year the Haswell refresh lineup together with the release of their latest mainstream chipset, the Z97. This refresh release was overshadowed by the eagerly awaited high end K SKU Devils Canyon and the low end 20th Anniversary Pentium processor; especially the latter is a very interesting product as it now sports a fully unlocked multiplier and retails at an insane low price. We have to thank the boys from Denmark Zzolio and Riska which allowed us to spend some time with their G3258 Pentium ES processor.

Posted by: STAFF

Intel Core i7-4790K Devil’s Canyon
     Tue, Jul 22 2014 | 2:36P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"When Intel announced their Haswell refresh some of us questioned where the “K-Series” unlocked processors were. We soon found out that Intel was working on two special processors made for enthusiasts codenamed “Devil’s Canyon”. These “Devil’s Canyon” processors would make up the K-Series of the Haswell refresh, but also have features that the other processors do not. Intel has addressed many issues that we saw on Ivy Bridge and Haswell processors in the past. Today we will be taking a look at the flagship Core i7-4790K quad-core processor. This is Intel’s first consumer processor to be clocked at 4.0 GHz and it actually boosts all the way up to 4.4 GHz! Let’s take a look…"

New Intel CEO outlines company product plans
     Tue, Jul 22 2014 | 2:36P | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
From datacenters to ultra-mobile devices such as tablets, phones and wearables, computing segments are undergoing exciting and even game-changing transitions, said new Intel CEO Brian Krzanich during the opening session of the Intel Developer Forum on September 10. Krzanich laid out Intel's vision and described how Intel is addressing each dynamic market segment - such as accelerating Intel's progress in ultra-mobile devices - with new products over the next year and beyond, including a new, lower-power product family.

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.
