TP-LINK AC1750 Wi-Fi Range Extender
     Sun, May 22 2016 | 4:00P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"If placed in the right position, RE450 Range Extender from TP-LINK can help you cover dead Wi-Fi spots inside your office or apartment by retransmitting the received signal via wired connection but can also create additional networks so the laptop/desktop/smartphone or other devices you are using will get full signal. The product is easy to relocate because it also includes the power adapter so we only have to plug it in and adjust the antennas in a position of our choice. RE450 also supports the latest 1300Mbps AC standard on the 5GHz band so we have obtained much better results in the tests compared to the previous generations."

     Sun, May 22 2016 | 9:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Boutique gaming PC system builders are a flourishing breed these days with new brands popping up on the scene regularly it seems. It's a testament to the fact that PC gaming, and the hardware the fuels it, is not only alive and well but kicking some major butt.

The question that remains now is, what kind of hardware do you require to enjoy those glory kills in all of their gory glory?

Posted by: STAFF
Founded in 2012, Gamdias, the God of gaming, is a gaming brand based on Greek mythology.

AMD FX-8350 Black Edition
     Sat, May 21 2016 | 4:02P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Going from a cooler on a 70x90mm base with a 70mm fan to a 90x100mm base with a 90mm fan is an excellent step up for AMD. It helps to allow the multi-core processor to more easily take advantage of the new graphics API in DirectX 12 set to be leveraged in new games (and VR headsets) while reducing the chances of thermal throttling."

     Sat, May 21 2016 | 4:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
KitGuru has seen a lot of evidence that new HEDT CPUs from Intel could be around the corner, under the name of Broadwell-E, including leaked benchmark results and a fumble from motherboard vendor ASRock. ASUS seems to be preparing for the launch of this new Intel CPU by refreshing its X99 motherboard range and we have one of those new ASUS motherboards in for testing. The ROG STRIX X99 Gaming is the motherboard in question and, interestingly, is the first ASUS product to combine the STRIX and Republic of Gamers branding.

ADATA SP550 240GB SATA SSD Review: $0.25-per-GB Reality
     Sat, May 21 2016 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With current storage controllers having no problem saturating the SATA interface, a different kind of race emerges; one that is unusually focused towards the bottom with an eye on delivering the lowest per GB cost. The previously reviewed ADATA SX930 with its 4-channel JMicron JMF670H controller paired with 16nm Micron MLC NAND is fairly affordable already at $0.33-per-GB, but using.

     Fri, May 20 2016 | 4:03P | Cases | PermaLink

The Mercury S8S from Case Labs is basically a short version of the S8. As with all enclosures from Case Labs also this one is individually configurable in their shop and therefore the possibilities of what kind of build you'd like to realize are sheer endless.

PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
