Sapphire Pure Black X58 LGA1366 motherboard
     Thu, Mar 24 2011 | 4:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Around here, we usually see motherboards from the like of ASUS, Gigabyte and MSI. Even EVGA makes an appearance every now and then but there is one other company which is trying to break into this market once again: Sapphire. With their new Pure Black X58, they hope to once again make an entry into enthusiast circles but is this board too little, too late? We’re going to find out.

P67 Motherboard Roundup
     Thu, Mar 24 2011 | 4:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The overclocking on the Pro gives you many options as to how you would like to go about it. There are software based options, BIOS based automatic options and manual BIOS options to choose from. We chose the manual BIOS based option to fine tune the overclock for our tests. The i7 2600K in the ASUS Pro overclocked with relative ease to a mind bending 4.951 Ghz clock speed with a controllable heat output. The vcore voltage was elevated to 1.48v in the BIOS and the core temperatures never exceeded the low 60's during the testing. This is quite remarkable seeing as how the last generation of Intel processors were known for their enormous heat output that required high-end cooling solutions when overclocking, not even to their maximum potential."

Samsung SyncMaster FX2490HD
     Thu, Mar 24 2011 | 4:01P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Part desktop display and part HDTV, the Samsung SyncMaster FX2490HD is an attractive 24-inch hybrid monitor that won't break the bank. Geared towards users with space constraints, it delivers good HD imagery and sharp text, but it has tinting and uniformity issues.”

Gigabyte E350N-USB3
     Thu, Mar 24 2011 | 4:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Gigabyte E350N-USB3 was very strong in terms of performance, beating the Asus E35 M1-M Pro at almost every turn. Furthermore the overclocking performance was also very good, as it is possible to push the processor as high as 1.92GHz providing you have sufficient case cooling.

Viewsonic ViewPad 10s tablet
     Thu, Mar 24 2011 | 12:03P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We received an unpolished version of Viewsonic’s ViewPad 10s a week ago or so. This isn’t the first ViewSonic tablet that we’ve had the chance to encounter, but no less interesting for that. The device is based on NVIDIA’s 1 GHz Tegra 2 chip, which makes this tablet much more powerful than many PCs that we keep in our homes. This is no longer a typical tablet - a small handy device that can play a YouTube video or surf the internet - this ViewPad plays serious films and runs serious games. Our sample had 4 GB of internal memory, which may be increased to 16 GB in the final revision. If that proves to be insufficient, you can always extend the capacity with a microSD card, with a capacity of up to 32 GB, forming a serious storage device…

EK Waterblocks full cover block for the Asus Rampage III Extreme
     Thu, Mar 24 2011 | 12:02P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ever tried to keep your X58 motherboards IOH and ICH temps at a reasonable operating temperatures ? To be honest most of the stock heatsinks really need some help as they are underdimensioned and/or lack an active fan. Temperatures over 65°C are very comon. Many watercooling companies jumped on the wagon to manufacture a all in one cooling solution for all the hot parts of the mainboard. No seperate waterblocks for the IOH and ICH chipset or PWM area. One block that cools down the hottest parts of your favoruite motherboard. EK Waterblocks was so kind to send us their clear nickel plated version for the Asus Rampage 3 Extreme

Bitfenix Survivor Core Midi tower case review

Posted by: STAFF
Caseking send us another mid-tower sized case to have a look at. Today's star is the Bitfenix Survivor Core case. At first glance it might look a bit dull and simplistic, but the Survivor Core case's looks can deceive. On the inside is where the real fun is at ! In the mood for something different ? Something more spacey looking ? Tired of square or rectangular angled cases ? This one is made for you then...

Asus Rampage III Extreme Motherboard Review

We know several overclockers that swear by Asus products and turn their noses up at even considering a different motherboard brand. After having used the Rampage III Extreme for what it was intended we can see where this comes from.

BIOSTAR TP67XE Intel LGA 1155 Sandy Bridge Motherboard Review
     Thu, Mar 24 2011 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"BIOSTAR isn't one of the big names in motherboards today, frankly that's a shame. Throughout our testing today, the BIOSTAR TP67XE motherboard has kept me happy. It may not have been top performing board across all of our tests today. It did however, do a great job overall. What did impressed me the most was the overclocking ability of the BIOSTAR TP67XE. As we saw on the overclocking page we were able to overclock our Intel Core i5 2500K to 5GHz on this motherboard...:

Intel 510 Series 250GB SSDs Reviewed in RAID 0
     Thu, Mar 24 2011 | 9:02A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"So how did Intel do this round? Very good actually. Having used a few of the Marvell controlled drives before, we had an idea of what to expect although we knew that Intel was bringing their own firmware. Obviously, they brought their 'A' game when they designed the firmware because their 510 Series performed better than any Marvell drive we have tested. If this is just a mid-level product until their own high-end controller is ready for action, we can't wait to see what that's going to give us in terms of performance..."

Plextor M2 Series 128GB SATA 6Gbps Marvell SSD Review
     Thu, Mar 24 2011 | 9:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Plextor is probably best known for their optical drives so it may come as a surprise to some that they also offer SSDs in their product line. Their most recent line is the M2 series which features a Marvell controller and a 6Gbps interface. We've got our hands on the 128GB version and we'll see how it stacks up against the other drives we have tested. At first blush, the specifications for read and write, 420 MB/s and 210 MB/s respectively, don't seem all that amazing compared to the newest SandForce drives emerging that hit above 500 MB/s on both fronts. However, as we have seen with SandForce controllers, they rely on data compression to boost speed so depending on the type of data being transferred, the data rate may vary dramatically. The benchmarks will paint this picture a little better..."

ECO Sound Engineering V268 Wireless Bluetooth Headset
     Thu, Mar 24 2011 | 9:00A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"What can you get for $10 these days? Not much really, but if you check over at Wireless Ground you can get a Bluetooth headset for $9.95! is it worth it? Well maybe it is, that is if you’re looking for a throwaway type headset and not too worried about sound quality and comfort. The product is the ECO Sound Engineering V268 Wireless Bluetooth Headset. I’ve never heard of Eco Sound before until now, and at $10 I wasn’t expecting much, but for the price it’s not that bad. "

Zotac Geforce GTX 570 Review
     Wed, Mar 23 2011 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Zotac's Geforce GTX 570 does prove that is a direct competitor with any reference based HD 6970 at this given time. Through benchmarking and testing, both videocards won and lost during certain benchmarks and in the end, I can't and will not say one is better than the other. Regardless, Zotac's reference based version of the GTX 570 proved to be a great videocard and proved to work flawlessly right out of the box. The only hindrance would have to be the reference cooler which doesn't seem to be up to the task if you would like to overclock AND keeps things quiet and cool."

ASUS E35 M1-M PRO Atom based and Gigabyte
     Wed, Mar 23 2011 | 4:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It’s the factual state of affairs that integration is our imminent future, reinforced every day through announcements and presentation of various new technologies. The lack of upgrade options is something that we seem to be willing to renounce in order to get complete and efficient solutions. Intel’s latest CPU series has reduced overclocking to a lower level, thus announcing the direction that new products and technologies are about to take. Consequently, the hotly anticipated AMD Fusion, the first in the line of entirely integrated solutions, has finally reached us, in the form of ASUS E35 M1-M PRO model, carrying the currently strongest Zacate APU...
