Complete Guide to PC Workstations
     Sun, May 24 2015 | 1:32P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As we explained in our introduction to this series, workstations are considerably more than just powerful PCs. Brute performance may be the basis of a system you intend to use for high-end desktop computing tasks like 3D animation, CAD/CAM, engineering and product design. But there is much more to a workstation than a high-end rig aimed at general work usage or gaming. There are many more variations within the Intel Xeon processor range than Core i7, and whilst the professional graphics cards have a family relationship with their consumer counterparts, the specification of these and driver accreditation make them very different beasts, too.

Aerocool Aero 1000 Chassis Review
     Sun, May 24 2015 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Aerocool has trodden a careful path with its new Aero-1000 ATX case. This steel chassis looks understated with its black and white mono colour scheme and it is clear that Aerocool has worked hard to appeal to enthusiasts while keeping the price low.

Silicon Power S80 480GB
     Sun, May 24 2015 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The market for SATA solid state drives has matured. Over the last couple of years, the price for the drives has been in a steady decline. If you have been keeping up with our SSD reviews, you would no doubt notice that there are many good budget SSDs on the market today. Many of the budget SSDs such as OCZ ARC 100, Crucial MX100, and Samsung 850 EVO, deliver excellent performance at affordable price. As technology advances, the reliability for the SSDs have also gotten much better. Thus, there is absolutely no reason that you would not want to install an SSD into your system as primary boot device.

Intel NUC5i7RYH With Iris Pro Graphics Mini-PC Review
     Sat, May 23 2015 | 12:03P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The low-power characteristics of Broadwell simply make it well suited to the tight spaces and constrained thermal envelopes of small form factor systems. But another side benefit of Broadwell is that it also allows manufacturers to cram higher performing parts into the same (or smaller) spaces than previous-gen, Haswell-based parts. Take the Intel NUC5i7RYH we’re going to show you here, for example. This mini-PC is packing a Core i7-5557U processor with Iris Pro graphics, which makes it the most powerful NUC released to date. Check out the full list of specifications below and then we’ll dive a little deeper on the pages ahead...

Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan X GPU Review
     Sat, May 23 2015 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan X comes with a massive full-fledged 12GB GDDR5 with 7Gbps effective memory bandwidth. It also has a massive price tag that suits the Titan X too. It should be interesting to see how good the card performs in all fronts in comparison with GTX 980 that was reviewed earlier.

SanDisk CloudSpeed Eco SSD Review (960GB)
     Sat, May 23 2015 | 12:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to enterprise SSD storage solutions SanDisk is one of the largest manufacturers out there with a broad range of product to cover the many needs of the this ever growing market. While recent reviews have touched on products that include the words PCIe, SAS, and NVMe, where they offer breath taking performance, there are still many tasks that don’t require bleeding edge speeds and can utilize standard SATA based products. For this segment SanDisk has a trio of SATA based products built for read-intensive workloads, the CloudSpeed SSD family and today we will be taking a closer look at the 960GB CloudSpeed Eco.

LUXA2 Lavi L Bluetooth Headphones
     Sat, May 23 2015 | 12:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"LUXA2’s Lavi headphone series is made up of the Lavi S, Lavi D, and Lavi L. We have already taken a look at the high-end Lavi D and the mid-range Lavi D, and now it is time to take a look at the entry level Lavi L. LUXA2’s tagline for this headset is “Wireless Music on the Go” and you can tell by the design that is what it is made for. Being the smallest headset in the Lavi series the Lavi L has a lay-flat and folding design that makes them easy to travel with, powerful 40mm drivers, controls on the earcups and more.

G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 3000MHz
     Sat, May 23 2015 | 9:03A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We recently looked at a kit of G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 2666MHz and they were screaming-good both in speed and overclocking, and had nice, tight timings as well. We went back to the G.SKILL well and pulled out a G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 3000MHz kit so we can get a direct comparison between 2666MHz and 3000MHz at the same timings! It’s not often that we get to review RAM with the same timings at different speeds, but we lucked out and have it for you to scope out. How much difference will we get with a 334MHz advantage on the faster G.SKILL Kit? Read on to find out.

Gigabyte X99-UD4P
     Sat, May 23 2015 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes time for us to upgrade our computer, one of the first things we need to ask ourselves is what are we going to be using our computer for? Am I going to be playing games, uploading videos to my favorite video-sharing website, using it as an office computer, or doing a little bit of everything? These days we can build our computers around a very specific job type or task it will be performing. But no matter what we are going to use our computer for, it will have to be fast enough to do our tasks effortlessly.

SilverStone Raven RV05B-W PC Case Review
     Sat, May 23 2015 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the years we've seen a very large number of PC Cases some big, some small, some tiny, some with just the basic features you find with low-cost models, some extra bells and whistles, some that offer weird positioning for the hardware, some casually looking and some looking like nothing else in the market. To date however not many manufacturers have managed to combine all of the above and if we had to choose some right off the top of our heads the first two would probably be Thermaltake and CoolerMaster. There are others however who take things just as seriously and in some cases even surpass the above two in terms of radical new ideas and SilverStone has brought quite a few in the market which have been embraced by many consumers over the years so naturally SilverStone did what was expected of them which was to continue using them and today we have the latest one to feature some of them the Raven RV05B-W.

Posted by: STAFF
Last night's live stream with David Kanter was a deliciously nerdy discussion of AMD's upcoming CPUs and graphics chips in light of the roadmap info and other revelations from this week's Analyst Day event. The video below is a replay of the whole enchilada. It's lengthy, but there was some good discussion in there once we got rolling.

Raidmax was founded back in 1988 and is know for their budget oriented gaming cases. Their history indicates that they were one of the first to mass produce gaming cases incorporating innovative designs coupled with excellent performance. The Raidmax Viper GX II is one of the current iterations, building on past styles to achieve a truly unique look.The prominent features that really stand out is a hot-swappable SSD bay on top accompanied by two USB 3.0 ports and ominous yet slick looking vents on the top shroud.

Intel NUC Kit NUC5i7RYH Review
     Fri, May 22 2015 | 12:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Intel Next Unit of Computing (NUC) was released in 2012 to little fanfare, but Legit Reviews quickly fell in love with the tiny little PC and thought that there was potential in the potent little systems after the first time we used one. Over the past several years Intel has devoted more time and resources to the NUC team and despite increasing sales and millions in profit, the Intel NUC was never blessed with the opportunity to house an Intel Core i7 processor. All that changed with the introduction of the Intel NUC Kit NUC5i7RYH that is powered by the Intel Core i7-5557U processor!

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.
