DXRacer K Series Office Chair @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Jan 24 2015 | 4:02P | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
You might know the saying “for every butt there is a seat” well I get the feeling DXRacer recognizes this with their wide selection of seating options. I have taken a look at a few of their chairs in the past and after visiting their US office I can say for sure that they have a wide selection of seats. They have seven different chair series as well as a ton of colors in each series. When it was time to upgrade my wife’s office chair I decided to go with DXRacer’s latest line, the K Series. The high weight capacity wasn’t needed for her but the large size is great for when she sits in her chair Indian style. On top of that, the high weight capacity means when we have people over for small LANs we won’t have to worry about big buys like me breaking the chair.

Asus X99 Deluxe @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Jan 24 2015 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We can’t very well look at the i7-5960X from Intel and not do a motherboard along with it right? As the first of what expect to me a list of X99 motherboards I will be covering, I wanted to put the Asus to use first simply because they are always reliable and the software is perfect for keeping an eye on things when benchmarking the CPU. After I was done digging into the CPU I circled back around to take a closer look at the Asus X99 Deluxe. The name is simpler than a lot of the board I have tested recently and Asus went a little ham and changed up a lot with the new design. Let’s see what all changed, beyond the new white styling.

Intel i7-5960X Haswell-E @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Jan 24 2015 | 4:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If it feels like we were just right here not to long ago talking about Intel’s latest CPU it is because we were. They launched their Devils Canyon CPUs about two and a half months ago and here we are again. The thing is, today’s launch is designed to be sold alongside of the I7-4790K. This is because officially the 4790K and everything else on the 1150 socket are considered mainstream products. The i7-5960X Haswell-E CPU I will be looking at is an enthusiast product. That means there aren’t limitations like the limited number of PCIe Lanes that the mainstream line runs into all of the time. On top of that we have twice as many cores, twice the ram, DDR4, and a big price tag like all of the other flagship CPUs. The 5960X will certainly not be for the light hearted or budget builds, but I’m excited to see how it performs compared to the model before it and the extremely fast mainstream chips that sell beside it. While I’m at it I’m going to see what king of room you might have left when it comes time to overclock as well.

Fractal Design Core 3300
     Sat, Jan 24 2015 | 12:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"To conclude, Fractal Design has made another chassis that holds its own in many ways. Even with a few set backs, I would recommend this chassis to anyone who is looking to get a few features that may be only available in a high tier / price range. For the rest, who aren't completely sold on the Core series, Fractal Design does offer the XL I reviewed last year along with the other chassis at similar prices.”

Thermaltake Urban T81
     Sat, Jan 24 2015 | 12:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Urban T81 has a ton of great features and reasons that this chassis is worth every penny. I don't have time to write out each in detail or this would go on forever, so I'm just going to cover the things that make it stand out. First up, having support for nearly every aftermarket CPU cooler is a major advantage. I have time and time again given advice for purchasing a cooler, only to find out that a height limit is an issue. At 185mm and a good amount of surrounding space, there isn't much that will not fit. Going along with the CPU cooler; having space up to 360mm without removing a hard drive cage is insane! I also expect Quad X-Fire or SLI to not be a problem at all, considering the huge amount of airflow generously provided by two 200mm fans in front.”

NZXT S340
     Sat, Jan 24 2015 | 12:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The NZXT S340 is the best budget case to come along in years. It's a true bang-for-the-buck product that has features you'd expect from much more expensive cases. It looks outstanding, has plenty of room to work, excellent cable management, space for 120-280mm radiators, awesome cooling potential and so much more. " ~3dGameMan.com

Posted by: STAFF
Almost exactly four years ago the Swedish company Fractal Design presented with the Define R3 their first midi tower. Now they launched the Define R5 which should be the next step in evolution of their Define series cases. Like the previous model, the new R5 uses sound-absorbing material and a well thought tool-less system. The Define R5 is a case suitable for ATX motherboards and there are quite a interesting features to this case.

Cougar 600K Mechanical Keyboard
     Fri, Jan 23 2015 | 4:03P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since launching its first mechanical gaming keyboard, Cougar has continued releasing PC gaming devices ranging from the ultra affordable to the relatively expensive. On the upper end of things, Cougar's flagship 700K fetches $150, but for folks who can't quite justify the price Cougar has developed the 600K we have in house for review. Along for the ride is Cougar's 600M gaming mouse, which is surprisingly well-equipped for $60.

Acer XB270H, a 1920x1080 27-in monitor
     Fri, Jan 23 2015 | 4:00P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
But today we are looking at the new Acer XB270H, a 1920x1080 27-in monitor with G-Sync support and a 144 Hz refresh rate; a unique combination. In fact, there is no other 27-in 144 Hz 1080p monitor on the market that we are aware of after a quick search of Newegg.com and Amazon.com. But does this monitor offer the same kind of experience as the ASUS ROG Swift PG278Q or even the Acer XB280HK 4K G-Sync panels?

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.
