ASUS EN9600GT Top Video Card
     Wed, Apr 16 2008 | 6:15P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Today we are checking out another overclocked 9600 GT. This card is the ASUS EN9600GT Top. ASUS promises a 10% overclock right out of the box and provides applications to let you overclock even more. The only real sore point for me with the ASUS EN9600GT Top is that the custom heatsink makes the card very thick. You can still run the ASUS EN9600GT Top in SLI mode, but you are likely going to give up the slot right below where you put the ASUS EN9600GT Top."

Antec Sonata 550 Plus
     Tue, Mar 18 2008 | 3:15P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Antec is back again with their Sonata casing, this time coupled with their fabulous NeoPower 550watts power supply. They packed it altogether in one box and called it the Sonata Plus 550. Another Sonata case, that at first sight looks a bit dull but if you look closer you'll be amazed by what this case has to offer."

Intel Core 2 Quad system
     Wed, Mar 05 2008 | 5:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Quad CrossFireX is appealing from a technical hardware enthusiast standpoint. However, it doesn't exactly produce the gameplay experience advantages needed to live up to the price tag required. The one game that really needs it, doesn't utilize it very efficiently yet, and the other games that do already have a great gaming experience on just one Radeon HD 3870 X2."

Silverstone Kublai Series KL01B Mid-Tower ATX Case
     Wed, Sep 26 2007 | 11:47P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Mid-tower ATX cases have come a long way from their early beginnings as plain, beige boxes that collected dust under office desks. Most enthusiasts want to show them off and some make them the centerpiece of their workstations. One case that recently hit store shelves is the KL01 from Silverstone. The KL01 is a hybrid consisting of a steel chassis and aluminum panels, but it’s design is very unique and should appeal to classier and sophisticated users.

Frostytech Test the new Akasa AK-975Cu Intel 2U Heatsink
     Sun, Jul 15 2007 | 3:22A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
PCSTATS.com Frostytech have a new heatsink review for us today - have a look at the Akasa AK-975Cu cooler.

"The Akasa AK-975Cu is a compact little Intel socket 775 heatsink that stands no more than 77mm tall. It comes with a 70mm PWM fan that varies in speed from 1000-3500RPM, and a convenient patch of pre-applied thermal compound on its base. The cooler is based on a copper block with aluminum fins and a pair of copper heatpipes to help distribute the heat to stubby cooling fins. All joints are soldered to lower thermal resistance.

The heatsink is compatible with socket 775 Intel Pentium D/4 and Core 2 Duo CPUs, specifically in a 2U rack mountable chassis environment. If you recall, servers and other rack mounted enclosures are packaged in boxes that conform to the 1U, 2U, 3U etc. sizes. Each Unit of space is equivalent to 1.75" (44mm)."

Foxconn WinFast 6100K8MB-RS Motherboard Review
     Tue, Feb 07 2006 | 12:53P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Foxconn, a traditional OEM manufacturer, is now in the retail market with its own motherboard line, using its own brand. For AMD platform, it is using WinFast brand, which was licensed from Leadtek. Foxconn WinFast 6100K8MB-RS is a socket 754 motherboard based on the latest nVidia chipset with integrated graphics (a.k.a. on-board video): GeForce 6100. We were very curious to measure GeForce 6100 performance and compare it to commercial entry-level video cards, like GeForce 6200. That's what we've done in this review, and also compared its performance to other chipsets with on-board graphics: VIA K8M800 and SiS 760 GX."

Hiper Type-R Series Modular 580W PSU Review
     Sun, Sep 18 2005 | 10:37P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"There is no doubting that system builders are fiercely dedicated to their chosen power supply company. Whether their own experience has caused them to favor one company over the others or they have been influenced by other sources, these opinions can be very hard to sway. Even the people who are not as dedicated to just one brand often have chosen three or four companies and hold their power supplies above the rest. Though this situation has not completely barred new companies from entering the PSU market it has caused hesitancy on the part of the companies and a good deal of consumer reluctance.This review will be taking a look at the Hiper Type-R Series 580W Modular Power Supply. Though Hiper has yet to make much progress in the US market they have been making a name for themselves with their Type-R series power supply."

Intel Spring IDF News
     Thu, Feb 19 2004 | 4:06P | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I'm not sure why Intel are calling this IDF Spring, but anyway the news has been flowing from San Jose these past few days. Bit-tech have their first article on the show here, and other sites like hardwarezone, and hexus day 1 ,day 2, day 0, have coverage as well.

Intel use IDF to launch their new technologies, and so it is no surprise to find a few Prescott reviews floating around the web today as well from; hardwareanalysis, Teamhardware, hardwarezone, accelenation, motherboards, and ohls-place. Motherboards also take the time to test out AMD's Athlon 64 3400+ CPU.

In other news, Bit-tech play around with the Enermax Noisetaker 475W PSU while overclockercafe review the Albatron PX 875P Pro motherboard. Lastly, the boys at Extreme Overclocking have just posted a review on the Samsung SyncMaster 192T 19" LCD Flat Panel Display.

immersive 2.1 channel gaming speakers
     Tue, Dec 30 2003 | 1:01A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Listening to the Sicuro 2.1 Gaming Speakers with my eyes closed, it is difficult to pinpoint where the satellites are placed, just like it's hard to tell where a subwoofer is in a room. This is due to the omni- directional design of the speakers. It's not a full surround-sound effect (like it's coming from behind you), but the sound is much wider than regular unidirectional speakers. This gives you an immersion that regular 2.1 speakers cannot provide."

VisionTek 48x12x48 CD-RW
     Wed, Jun 26 2002 | 10:32A | Optical Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
GotApex? looks at a different kind of VisionTek product... They're looking at the 48x12x48 VisionTek CD-RW! Here's the article.

Surprising just about everyone, Visiontek will have a new product line appearing in stores today - the Xtasy 40x and 48x speed CD-RW drives. Naturally, being a geek in love with burning, I was more than a little curious. The press release that first announced the new drives lacked the information I wanted - were these drives based on Ricoh, Plextor, or Lite On tech? Or did Visiontek develop their own drive to compete with the big boys?

eVGA GeForce4 MX440 Review
     Mon, Mar 11 2002 | 10:30A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I am Not a Geek takes a look at the eVGA GeForce4 MX440 videocard. Ahh, it's a value card... Yeah that's right! =)

The large sticker you see on the back of the video card contains both the model and serial number. You can actually see this information while the is sealed in the retail box. This is because eVGA has put a window on the back of the box so that you can see your getting a legit eVGA card without opening the package.
