 [LATEST]  Crucial Ballistix Sport LT DDR4 2400MHz Review
     Sat, Apr 18 2015 | 9:03A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Ballistix performance series memory has proven popular for their stock performance, overclock-ability, quality and the ever changing style employed by Crucial. We are looking at the latest addition to the Ballistix family, the Ballistix Sport LT. These should land right between the Sport models and the higher end Elite kits, hopefully netting us the best of both worlds, tighter timings and high clocks.”

 [LATEST]  Grand Theft Auto IV 7-Years Later
     Sat, Apr 18 2015 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The story is, separate from the narrative, nothing too special, but when you consider the actual storytelling, GTA IV does it exceptionally well. You get a real feel for the world and characters, even if they do end up betraying you, or you end up killing them. Plus the voice work actually seems natural, without pauses when switching speakers. The gameplay, too, is a lot of fun, but there are definitely some issues to it. Sure, these issues in a way come from the game trying to be a simulator, but sometimes you should embrace a game for being a game and bend the rules of reality some. (I am mostly thinking of the vehicle management here.) The graphics are dated and clearly ported from the consoles, which is not something in the game's favor, but you can get through it. It may be old, but something worth returning to, if you are interested in it.”

 [LATEST]  Blackview Breeze Smartphone Review
     Sat, Apr 18 2015 | 9:00A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This model was mainly built for people with lower budgets, which do not have enough cash to invest in higher-specced models and Blackview has picked one of the mainstream SoCs (MT6582) of 2013 to equip it, which now also has sources for building Android 5.0 distributions.

Crucial MX200 1TB & BX100 500GB Series SSD Review
     Fri, Apr 17 2015 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Crucial's SSDs have been among the most reliable and best performing on the market, with last summer's MX100 being the company's greatest hit. Despite offering solid performance even by today's standards, its 'MX200' sucessor arrived only six month later and along with it Crucial also introduced the even more affordable BX100 series and a new SSD toolbox software. On today's menu is the beefy 1TB MX200 ($470) along with the 500GB BX100 ($190).

Phanteks PH-TC12LS Low Profile Heatsink Review
     Thu, Apr 16 2015 | 11:30A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

Frostytech is testing the Phanteks PH-TC12LS heatsink, a top-down low profile heatsink that stands 74mm tall and weighs in at 500grams. The PH-TC12LS has a footprint about the size of the 120mm PWM fan that rests atop its black-painted aluminum fins. The cooler itself is built around six 6mm diameter nickel plated copper heatpipes which run the length of the fin stack, take a 180 degree turn and terminate in a thick copper heatspreader at the base - no exposed heatpipes here. The fan is mounted on little rubber pads to cut down on errant vibrational noises and it spins at 1800-500RPM, moving 53CFM at 1.72mmH2O according to manufacturer specs. Phanteks' PH-TC12LS heatsink installs onto AMD socket AM2/AM3/FM1/FM2 and Intel LGA2011/1366/115x/775 processors. Retail price is estimated at $49USD/CDN through the usual computer stores.

AeroCool GT-A Chassis Review
     Thu, Apr 16 2015 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
First appearances matter, and the styling of the Aerocool GT-A will easily distract you from the fact that this is a budget ATX case. The appearance of this white version with a blue LED fan at the front is eye-catching with its flared wheel arch thing at the front and the louvred top cover that sits above two empty 120mm fan housings. In front of that top cover there is a discreet sliding cover that conceals a SATA dock and when you look at the front panel you’ll find a pair of rotary fan controllers.

Phanteks PH-TC14S Slim Tower Heatsink Review
     Thu, Apr 16 2015 | 9:00A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The whole premise behind the slim-tower Phanteks PH-TC14S heatsink is not overhanging memory slots - if you've built an Intel X99 based computer recently, you're undoubtedly aware that the memory slots straddle either side of the LGA2011-3 CPU socket with a little less than 20mm to spare."

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.
