Gigabyte X99 Gaming G1 WiFi (LGA 2011-3) Motherboard Review
     Sun, Dec 14 2014 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A trend that is observable with higher end “gaming” motherboards is that they tend to be geared primarily towards performance junkies, overclockers and all-round enthusiasts, rather than just pure gamers. Gaming motherboards based on Intel’s X99 chipset are a perfect example of this because the reality is that most gamers would get a better deal by opting for a Z97 motherboard and a Core i7 4790K. As a result a gaming X99 motherboard appeals to a specific type of gamer who has the need for a large amount of CPU horsepower and memory to assist with things like video editing, rendering and streaming. Today we have Gigabyte’s G1 Gaming WiFi motherboard which takes Gigabyte’s “gaming” feature-set of upgraded quality audio and Killer networking and pairs that up with the performance of the X99 platform and various tools for overclockers such as voltage read-off points and onboard buttons. There’s also a shed-load of connectivity such as dual-LAN, AC WiFi, SATA Express, M.2 and more USB ports than you can shake a stick at. In basic terms, the Gaming G1 WiFi is Gigabyte’s flagship motherboard for the X99 Gaming series, but the reality is that any Gigabyte X99 motherboard is going to be “high-end enough” for you to be contented.

Tesoro Tizona Elite Mechanical Gaming Keyboard & Numberpad Review
     Sun, Dec 14 2014 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Tesoro are one of my favourite keyboard manufacturers, as they offer up some unique aesthetics, class leading performance and great build quality; although I’m sure they’re the kind of features we can all get behind! Everything I’ve tested from Tesoro, both professionally and personally has always been impressive and a little bit different from everything else on the market; today’s review is no exception. At my disposal I have not one, but two Tesoro products; the Tizona Elite mechanical gaming keyboard, and the Tizona Numberpad.

Raidmax Vortex V3 Review
     Sun, Dec 14 2014 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Vortex V3, Raidmax has a very aggressively priced case in its portfolio, which features a well thought cooling concept as well as plenty of space for neat cable management. Keeping in mind this case only costs 35 Euro, Raidmax has an enclosure in its portfolio, which is definitely worth having a closer look.

COUGAR 600M Gaming Mouse Review
     Sat, Dec 13 2014 | 10:58A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just like most things related to PC systems (and not only) gaming peripherals are getting more advanced and innovative each day that goes by so currently we have numerous gaming keyboards, headsets and mice aimed at serious gamers and professionals alike that not only come with superior performance thanks to blazing fast laser, optical and LED sensors but also an abundance of features (some very useful while others not so much). Manufacturers don`t stop there however so aside performance and features many models follow really strange and sometimes ergonomic design lines to separate them from the rest of the crowd. However not every gamer out there seeks to get advanced gaming peripherals and this may surprise some people but many times the reason behind that has nothing to do with the cost of such devices but rather with simplicity. A few months back COUGAR announced their gaming line from which so far we`ve looked at the 700M Gaming Mouse which as many of you know at the end of the day left us with a very good overall opinion. Well today we`ll be taking a thorough look at its cousin the 600M Gaming Mouse."

     Sat, Dec 13 2014 | 10:04A | Peripherals | PermaLink

As if we did not already have enough to appreciate in terms of the number of quality gaming peripherals that ROCCAT has been making available to us recently, we can be thankful that this organization has also been placing focus on providing us with accessories to complement the aforementioned gaming peripherals.

NZXT H440 Razer Edition Case
     Sat, Dec 13 2014 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Computer cases of today are so much better and smarter than they were back when we first started modding and building computers of our own, but some of these new cases come along and stands out in the middle of the crowd and silently screams "look at me". One of those cases is the NZXT H440-Designed by Razer (CA-H440W-RA). Basically the Razer engineering team along with the already winning NZXT team got together and took what was already one of the most popular computer enthusiast cases around, the NZXT H440 and together they both collaborated to make it an even more superior gaming oriented NZXT H440 computer case."

Fractal Design's R4 enclosure
     Sat, Dec 13 2014 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"It's refreshing to look at an enclosure that delivers great performance and value like the Define R5. The case has an understated look, but is still very nice looking with clean lines and a quality finish. There is ample room for expansion and Fractal has not foregone support for optical drives for the many who still use them, and the door panel keeps things looking clean up front."

EVGA SuperNOVA P2 1600 Supply Review
     Fri, Dec 12 2014 | 7:07P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We aren’t messing around today. Up for analysis is the latest flagship power supply from enthusiast favourite EVGA. Their new SuperNova 1600 P2 Power supply is a monster product designed for power crazy SLI and Crossfire systems. It is 80 Plus Platinum certified, fully modular, and incorporates the highest grade Japanese capacitors inside. The EVGA SuperNOVA 1600 P2 is designed to deliver a staggering 1600 watts – which for 90% of our audience, will be completely overkill. This is not for the faint of heart, as the £275.99 inc vat asking price will testify.

the beefy Enthoo Prime
     Fri, Dec 12 2014 | 7:05P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Phanteks Enthoo Luxe is the smaller brother of the beefy Enthoo Prime, but still counts as a full-tower case while sporting many of the Prime's features. It serves to fill the gap between the Pro and Primo in Phanteks' case lineup. We have the Enthoo Luxe in a luxurious white color under the review spotlight today, and test to see if it will hit the sweet spot of pricing and performance.

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.
