Patriot Ignite 480GB
     Sat, May 30 2015 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Patriot has been silent on the SSD front for a while letting the older products fill the space until the next versions of its latest drive were ready for delivery. Diving into the lower cost segment, Patriot used the Phison S3110 controller to manage the asynchronous micron based MLC NAND. From a performance perspective, the Patriot Ignite delivered impressive results across the board with a few exceptions. The 480GB drive we received from Patriot easily reached or exceeded the performance ratings it is designed to meet, which is impressive from a lower cost drive. This does not add up to a perfect picture for the drive even though it is the highest performing drive in many of the tests. It's a great start, but does not present the full picture.”

Raidmax Hyperion
     Sat, May 30 2015 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Extremely compact, able to use 240 mm radiators and a 5.25" drive at the same time, all while holding five hard drives, a mATX board, and that high-end GPU: does it sound too good to be true? Well, the Raidmax Hyperion offers all that and can be had in four different colors and at an attractive price to boot.

Samsung Galaxy S6 & S6 Edge Review
     Fri, May 29 2015 | 4:03P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The launch of the Galaxy S6 is one of the most important for Samsung in a long time, and this time around there’s not just one flagship, but two: the company has released a curved-display Edge variant. Both come with a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED display with a top-end 1440p resolution, a brand new Exynos 7 Octa 7420 SoC, and a 16-megapixel optically stabilized camera. Unlike with the past three generations of Galaxy flagships, there’s no Qualcomm model in sight.

Nvidia Titan X @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, May 29 2015 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sometimes you can’t explain it but you need the biggest and best. When it comes to video cards from Nvidia the GTX 980 is a beast, hell I have GTX 980’s in both my main PC and my LAN rig, but with 4 giga of ram I don’t think you can really consider it to be the end all be all video card. This is where Nvidia comes in with their Titan cards. In the past they have had the original Titan as well as the Titan Z with its dual GPUs and the Titan Black. Well the latest Titan is the Titan X. Nvidia launched it this past March and we were a little slow to get one in but today I finally have one to run through our benchmark suite. Let’s find out if it really is godlike like the name implies.

Gigabyte Z97X-UD3H-BK Motherboard Review
     Fri, May 29 2015 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Intel Z97 chipset's life is getting ready to come to an end as the next generation of Intel processors are due for an update soon, which means a change in chipset and socket. That doesn’t mean that the Z97 motherboards and socket 1150 chips become useless, they’ll be available and popular for a few more years. There are so many different Z97 motherboards available, it can be confusing which one is the best option. Read on to see how the Gigabyte Z97X-UD3H-BK Motherboard performs for a $140 motherboard that is backed by a 5-year warranty.

Asus GTX980 20th Anniversary Gold Edition Gallery
     Fri, May 29 2015 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you blinked you may have missed it – but Asus recently released a one of a kind, strictly limited edition GTX980. This card hit the United Kingdom in very small quantities and according to our sources in ASUS they sold out before you could say ‘YES PLEASE!’. We managed to get our hands on the card for a short while – just to show you what you are missing. No time for benchmarks, but no doubt we will see a handful of these hitting ebay soon at prices to make grown men weep.

Dell Precision M3800 Mobile Workstation Review
     Fri, May 29 2015 | 9:00A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Before you even think about shopping for an Apple MacBook Pro for professional chores on the go, Dell wants you to give a long, hard look at its recently redesigned Precision M3800 Mobile Workstation. According to Dell, the M3800 is a superior product in several ways, and the OEM even put together an infographic showing more than half a dozen reasons why its 15.6-inch laptop is a better solution than Apple's...

600-650 watt power supply round-up
     Thu, May 28 2015 | 4:01P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although a 500W unit is actually capable of powering a pretty beefy system these days, choosing a 600-650W unit does offer a little more flexibility at only a modest price increase. Therefore, we tested 25 such power supplies, with prices ranging from $30 / £22 / €30 to $150 / £120 / €150. Based on our tests, we can once again conclude that there are no truly awful "branded" power supplies, just as was the case after our 500-550W power supply round-up. Furthermore, it's also clear that investing a little in a decent power supply is worthwhile: you really don't want to purchase budget models. Such power supplies are simply incapable of matching the quality standards that the rest of the market has established. So do yourself a favour, and don't try to save too much money on your power supply. A good system deserves a good power supply!

Samsung SM951 M.2 NVME SSD Review (256GB)
     Thu, May 28 2015 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Samsung SM951 is one of the fastest SSD solutions out for those with a need for speed. It offers speeds that put most SSDs to shame and does it in a small M.2 2280 form factor. Last week we took a look at the 512GB variant that utilizes the AHCI host controller interface. To say the least, performance was very impressive. In that review we mentioned that the NMVe variant is starting to show up and that we would publish a review on one as soon as we could and well, today is the day. If you are a storage nut as I just happen to be, please get comfy and continue reading as we take a closer look at the NVMe variant of the Samsung SM951 M.2 PCIe SSD!

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.
