Crucial M4 / Micron C400 256GB SSD Review
     Sat, Apr 16 2011 | 12:01P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Crucial, best known for their memory products, was the first to put an SSD on the market with a 6Gbps interface way back in early 2010 with the C300 drive. Back then, we ran some tests and found it to be impressive when compared with what was on the market at the time. Since then, a lot has changed and there are a number of 6Gbps interface drives on the market now so competition is definitely stiffer this time around. Will it hit them mark using the same controller with firmware and NAND updates? Read on and see.

ROCCAT Kulo Stereo Gaming Headset Review
     Sat, Apr 16 2011 | 12:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The latest Stereo Gaming Headset from ROCCAT is named Kulo, is very light (suitable for LAN Parties), and comes with an unique feature: the Automatic Mic-Mute; also, the in-line volume control is very handy. Even if it is an on-ear model, it's confortable even after many hours of use.

Gigabyte G1.Sniper (Intel X58)
     Sat, Apr 16 2011 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The advantage of featuring these high quality embedded devices is that it frees up the expansion slots for 3-way CrossFireX or 3-way SLI configurations, which is ultimately what the G1.Sniper is all about. It means that gamers can install triple Radeon HD 6970 graphics cards for example and not have to worry about having no room left for their sound card, as it is already included onboard.

Thermaltake eSPORTS Shock One Gaming Headset
     Sat, Apr 16 2011 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Thermaltake eSPORTS Shock One headset features good all round sound and good directionality with its DTS Surround Sensation. While it might not have the best comfort or sound out of the box (until you swap it for the included velour pads), it has definitely become a real joy to use after a week of use. Using its potent set of 40mm drivers, the Shock One is definitely a contender in the sub $100 market, and has impressed me thus far. Definitely recommended for anyone who is looking for a good looking headset with great sounds.

Kingston 12GB HyperX T1 Black Edition Memory Kit
     Sat, Apr 16 2011 | 9:01A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While the HyperX T1 Series are not new to the market, and have previously been introduced in both dual- and triple-channel variants, with the release of the Black Edition, Kingston has expanded the maximum RAM to 24GB. The Kingston Hyper X T1 Black Edition is offered in three kits: 6GB, 12GB, and 24GB. The definitive feature of the newly introduced memory is the black heatsink. Aside from its looks the memory is made to support the performance of the Core i7 990x and is designed for a stock frequency of 1600 MHz with a latency of 9-9-9-27. However, the frequency can be overclocked in order to achieve maximum performance, which we intend to test in this review.

Lian Li PC-V2120
     Sat, Apr 16 2011 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The V2120 may be the largest chassis from Lian Li. It can not only hold a boatload of drives, but also the biggest enthusiast mainboard on the market: the EVGA SR2. With a hefty price tag we take a look at every aspect of the chassis with eagle eyes, to see if it is the ultimate computer case.

We'll be finding out whether it is the ideal solution for anyone looking at a high quality compact chassis and whether BitFenix have taken on some of the key learning's from Colossus."

AMD Radeon HD 6950 1GB
     Fri, Apr 15 2011 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD last week released a 1GB variant of its popular Radeon HD 6950 graphics card, and to see how the performance would be throttled with the GDDR cut, we benchmarked both versions with the latest Catalyst 11.1 driver. Does the 1GB card and its $20 savings prove too hard to ignore, or should the 2GB still be the one to scoop up?

AMD Brazos platform
     Fri, Apr 15 2011 | 4:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Also worth noting in my testing that even while running 3DMark Vantage, the Toshiba C655D has never gotten even remotely warm to the touch. Nor are there any loud fans running the whole time. The promises from AMD of a very cool computing environment with longer battery life that most Atom platforms seems to be met with this machine, even if the performance delta from Intel's options is less than I would have liked."

Acer Aspire AS7552G-6436
     Fri, Apr 15 2011 | 12:03P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Acer Aspire AS7552G-6436 is the kind of desktop replacement laptop that starts out strong and then tapers off at the finish line. For instance, storage is aplenty with a 640GB hard drive, while the 17-inch widescreen and powerful ATI Mobility Radeon HD 6650 chip are a boon for movie buffs and avid gamers.”

PowerColor HD 6870 PCS++ 1 GB
     Fri, Apr 15 2011 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
PowerColor's new HD 6870 PCS++ comes with massively increased clocks out of the box which makes it roughly as fast as GTX 560 Ti or HD 6950. With a reasonable price increase of only $10 over the reference design, the card does not break the bank either, it is actually a worthy opponent to NVIDIA's GTX 560 Ti considering price/performance.

Fractal Design R3 Case
     Fri, Apr 15 2011 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Quote: "Fractal Design is a relatively new case manufacturer compared to household names like Cooler Master and Lian Li, but with the R3 we feel the company has produced a product with sufficient quality to take on and beat the most established names in the business."
