Thermaltake Core V71 Full Tower Chassis Review
     Sun, Jul 20 2014 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today is a great day in the eTeknix office, as I’m very happy to have yet another high-end chassis from the legendary Thermaltake. The Core V71 was first seen earlier this year at CES 2014 and we saw it again at Computex in Taipei a couple of months ago, now we’re finally able to get hands on with this beast and put it to the test. The Thermaltake Core V71 has been designed with customisation in mind, its capable of handing extreme gaming rigs that have been built around extreme levels of air or water cooling. It features extensive radiator support and comes equipped with three powerful 200mm fans as standard, which already sets it apart from many competing brands in terms of air cooling. Of course all the support included for high-end builds will come at a premium, as you can expect to pay in the region of £120 for this beast, but when it comes to premium grade system builds, that really is only a drop in the ocean compared to the cost of your other components such as graphics cards and a CPU. Either way, it will be interesting to see just how much return on investment you can get for paying a premium on your chassis and compared to products of a similar spec from the likes of Corsair and Fractal, it’s still competitively priced.

Thermaltake ToughPower Grand TPG-0750M 750W Power Supply Unit Review
     Sat, Jul 19 2014 | 7:45P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Whenever my road brings me close to an electronics store i almost always go inside not only because i want to see if there`s something new in the market that I?ve missed but also because i enjoy listening (curiosity i guess) to what consumers ask from the sales people. That of course has led me to realize that not all sales people have the necessary knowledge needed in order to guide consumers to the right choice (not their fault really, not in the times we live in). For example just two weeks ago i overheard a sales person recommend a 600W PSU to someone who had just bought a brand new MSI NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 for his Core i7 system. True an 600W can easily handle that card (since it has a max power consumption of less than 300W) but the total power draw of the system obviously depends on the rest of the components so when the only thing you know is that the consumer owns an Intel Core i7 4790 then you shouldn`t take any chances. In the end it seems that the consumer knew his way a lot better than the sales person so he left with an 750W power supply unit instead a model by Thermaltake which coincidentally i had yet to get my hands on. Today we`ll be taking a look at the new ToughPower Grand TPG-0750M (or ToughPower Grand Gold Fully Modular as some call it) by Thermaltake which finally found its way over."

air Obsidian Series 450D Mid-Tower PC Case Review
     Sat, Jul 19 2014 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Remember when Volvo was "Boxy but safe?" While Corsair's new Obsidian 450D may not hit that point exactly, it does pretty darn well in the "Boxy but with a roomy interior that's optimized for airflow." The 450D has all the features you want for a new cool build whether it be air or water cooled with tons of components.

Intel SSD DC P3700 Review (800GB) NVMe for Enterpriseand Enthusiasts?
     Sat, Jul 19 2014 | 10:41A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the release of the SSD DC P3700, Intel has delivered on the most anticipated piece of storage technology in recent memory. This release is all about NVMe. We have been hearing about NVMe for years, but an end product always seemed just out of reach. We also expected the first devices to be exorbitantly priced enterprise SSDs. While not the first to market, the Intel solution will be available to the masses and it will be priced to move. This is not something you can always count on for an enterprise product."

LUXA2 GroovyW Bluetooth Speaker with Wireless Charging Station Review
     Sat, Jul 19 2014 | 10:36A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When i first heard that scientists had taken the first steps for wireless charging od devices a few back i was very intrigued since i do think that the future holds complete wireless freedom for everything in the electronics industry. Unfortunately to this day the consumer oriented devices that feature wireless charging are far from what i had hoped to see back then so in order to use wireless charging you need to place your smartphone on special Qi pads which only work with Qi compatible devices (since factory-ready Qi devices are quite rare Qi cards exist that add compatibility). Of course i expect full wireless charging in the coming years without such limitations but for now Qi is one of the hottest technologies around although it`s not really as popular as one would think. Still it`s popular enough for many manufacturers to implement it into their latest products to hit the market and one of those is the GroovyW Bluetooth Speaker by LUXA2."

Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 Review
     Sat, Jul 19 2014 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of Samsung's goals with its latest Galaxy Tab 4 tablets was to create a family of products that offered good value and versatility to a wide range of potential consumers. The new Galaxy Tab 4 family is available in three sizes: 7-, 8-, and 10.1-inches and the tablets feature lightweight materials, thin bezels, and HD displays. In March, we took a look at Samsung’s Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1. If the flagship Pro series is too much for you in terms of features or price, the Galaxy Tab 4 series may be a better option. Today, we’re going to take a closer look at the Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 which is available in black or white with an MSRP of $269.99. LTE versions of the Galaxy Tab 4 are also available through wireless carriers in the US...

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.
