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.

     Fri, Dec 12 2014 | 10:46A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are going to look at the TRENDnet WiFi Baby Cam with nightvision (part number TV-IP743SIC). Gone are the days of the old walkie talkie baby monitors, now we have baby monitors with nightvision and recording capabilities that play soothing songs and can be viewed on four different devices simultaneously. Oh and did I mention that it has a microphone so that if your baby is crying you can try talking to him first through your monitor instead of having to rush in to turn on the lights and really wake him up? Let?s take a closer look at the TRENDnet WiFi baby cam with nightvision that you can find on Amazon for $67.99 shipped."

MSI GTX 980 Gaming 4G @ Bjorn3D.com

Posted by: STAFF
Very much on the heels of the Maxwell and GTX 980 launch was the partner cards and the first GTX 980 model we received much like the 970 we recently looked at is the MSI Gaming 4G edition. First of all the cooler for these cards simply look beastly but also if this card proves to be any shade as impressive as the 970 we saw before then gamers are in for a real treat. "

Raidmax Vampire Review @ ocaholic

The Vampire is on of the latest tower cases from Raidmax, which offers plenty of interior space in order to build high-end systems. Apart from that there are quite a few neat little features, like for example a small fan controller as well as a hot-swap bay and rather reasonable price."

G.SKILL Phoenix Blade 480GB PCIe SSD Review
     Fri, Dec 12 2014 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Based out of Taiwan and founded in 1989, G.SKILL is best known for their memory products and over the years they’ve sprinkled in some other related products as well. Though they haven’t been very prominent in the SSD market – especially as of late, G.SKILL has remained in the game with yet another Phoenix drive release. They’ve been using the ‘Phoenix’ appellation on their SSD product names for quite some time and to the best of my memory, the last one we tested was the Phoenix Pro way back in 2010. That particular drive featured the (pre-LSI owned) SandForce SF-1222 controller and operated on a SATA II interface. Now that newly minted SATA II SSDs are a thing of the past and SATA III drives are routinely hitting bandwidth thresholds, we’re seeing more and more PCIe based drives emerge which have plenty of ceiling left to grow. G.SKILL has surprisingly joined the growing PCIe crowd with the Phoenix Blade. The name is likely a reference to the drive’s shape, long and thin, and the fact that it carves up data with ease. This time around, they have a on board RAID 0 setup (à la OCZ RevoDrive 350) with four LSI SandForce SF-2281 controllers working in concert to pump out crazy performance like 2000MB/s reads/writes and IOPS of up to 90,000 reads and 245,000 writes.

Asus Maximus VII Impact @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Dec 12 2014 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to Mini-ITX motherboards people are going to have a wide range of feature requirements. For some, as long as it supports their CPU and it has a x16 PCIe slot they are good to go. Others want to have a lot of the features they would find in their full sized builds including wireless AC, different storage connection options, and even upgraded audio. Personally I have been on both sides. When I’m building a budget Mini-ITX build I can skip out on the features but when I’m building a crazy LAN rig like the build we put in the In Win D-Frame Mini only the best will do. Asus continues to impress me with their drive to pack anything and everything into their Impact boards. Well today I’m going to take a look at the latest one, the Maximus VII Impact. This is officially the second Impact board, based on the Z97 chipset. Is this the perfect LAN rig motherboard? Let’s find out.

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
