Cougar CMX V.3 850W Power Supply Unit
     Tue, Jan 14 2014 | 9:01A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the things every single one of us likes about the computer industry in its entirety is that as time goes by once expensive enthusiast grade hardware eventually always becomes mainstream and I’m not only talking about old products. Take SSDs for example, 3-4 years ago only enthusiasts and professionals could afford them while now you can find incredibly fast models for as low as USD80/80Euros not to mention that most PC systems (desktop and notebook) come with at least one pre-installed. The same also applies for power supply units so although a while back you needed to invest quite a bit on a good model now you can find very good ones for a lot less. Cougar may not be one of the most well-known PSU manufacturers (still it’s a sister company to the very well-known HEC/Compucase brand) but in the somewhat short time they've been around their products have managed to secure many awards by media around the world and for good reason since they offer both performance and quality. Today’s review is about one of their latest PSUs to hit the market the CMX V.3 850W model.

AMD A10-7850K Kaveri: The Linux Introduction
     Tue, Jan 14 2014 | 8:55A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This morning AMD is releasing the first APUs in their Kaveri family, their most advanced APU ever with up to 12 compute cores and is a big push forward with their overall HSA architecture. We managed to get our hands on a Kaveri system with A10-7850K APU and in the days/weeks ahead there will be many Linux benchmarks looking at the next-generation AMD APU. Here`s what Linux users need to know right now about AMD Kaveri APU Linux support."

EVGA Hadron Air Mini ITX Case Review
     Tue, Jan 14 2014 | 8:31A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Those couple of issues aside, working inside the EVGA Hadron Air case was fairly straight forward and we were very happy with the results. A clean and incredibly powerful system can be put into a small case design if you are willing to invest the time and money into your rig. The EVGA Hadron Air is currently selling for $179 with a small mail-in rebate. That definitely doesn`t qualify as a budget case for any PC but as with the notebook world, you pay more for smaller and more compact designs."

AMD A8-7600 Kaveri APU Review - HSA Arrives
     Tue, Jan 14 2014 | 8:16A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
GPU performance will also lead to advantages in other application areas that utilize those compute cores effectively. OpenCL is one such area and software developers continue to adapt and create software using it (including major vendors like Adobe and Microsoft). Our PCMark 8 v2.0 and Basemark CL results attempt to measure the capabilities of these processors and the results show that the GPU advantage AMD enjoys pays big dividends."

AMD`s next-generation APU packs in a ton of innovation, including updated Steamroller CPU cores, GCN graphics, and advanced HSA features. But is it enough to restore AMD`s competitiveness in desktop processors?"

AMD A10-7850K (Kaveri) APU Review featuring GIGABYTE G1.Sniper A88X @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Tue, Jan 14 2014 | 8:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
New GPU tech, new audio tech, more programmable, higher performance and better efficiency... just some of the main claims AMD make about Kaveri. Today we find out how it compares to the direct competition from Intel in real world media tests, some of the latest games (such as Call of Duty: Ghosts and DOTA 2) and also dipping into a few key synthetic benchmarks."

AMD A8 7600 Kaveri APU review
     Tue, Jan 14 2014 | 7:59A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,We review the new Kaveri APU from AMD. Today`s released A8 and A10 APUs are now 100% heterogeneous, meaning that all segments in the APU like the processor, cache and GPU have truly merged. Next to that the IGP inside the APU has been upgraded towards GCN architecture. In this first article we`ll look at the A8-7600 APU from AMD. Kaveri will aim at several segments in the processor business like notebooks, desktops, embedded and even server solutions. Armed bit a good 2.41 Billion transistors and based on a 28nm fabrication process, let`s have a look at what Kaveri can do."

AMD Kaveri A10 7850K & A8 7600 Review @ Hardware Canucks

Posted by: STAFF
AMD`s Kaveri is finally here and we look at the A10-7850K & A8-7600. With IPC improvements, Steamroller x86 cores and a GCN-based graphics processor, this may be the one we`ve been waiting for. "

Phanteks Enthoo Primo Review
     Mon, Jan 13 2014 | 11:59P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The list of features of the Enthoo Primo is impressive. The PWM fan hub allows PWM control over your case fans from a single PWM fan header on your motherboard. The blue LEDs of the front fans and front and top LED light strips add a touch of elegance to the case, and can be turned on or off with the touch of a button. The included pump mounting base, reservoir mounts, and multiple radiator locations simplify your water cooling build. Phanteks put a lot of time into this case and it shows."

Humble Indie Bundle X Review
     Mon, Jan 13 2014 | 11:53P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Playing Surgeon Simulator yourself could be decidedly frustrating when things stop behaving the way you want them to. Sometimes an organ will not cut when we want it to; we will get a bad grip on a tool, making it almost impossible to use the way we want to; or something will fall to the floor where it is lost forever. The only good news I can share with you about any of that is everyone who has played the game shares your pain and that restarting an operation is quick, easy, and painless (for you; not the patient)."

Zotax Zbox Nano AQ01 Plus
     Mon, Jan 13 2014 | 4:03P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While Zotac maybe is most knows for their graphics cards they also are specialized on small motherboards and small desktop systems. Today we are reviewing one of those tiny small desktop PC’s: the Zotax Zbox Nano AQ01 Plus. This is a very small PC that even comes with a VESA-mount so it can be attached to a TV ore monitor and be out of sight. It has a Quad-core AMD “Kabini” APU, the A4-5000 while a Radeon HD 8330 provides us with the graphics muscles. This is not a gaming machine, even though the GPU should benefit from the Mantle API, but promises to work well as either a media PC, a kitchen PC or even a bedroom PC. Does it have what it takes to compete with tables and other tiny PC’s?

SSD Form Factors: Everything You Need to Know
     Mon, Jan 13 2014 | 4:01P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When solid state drives first started replacing HDDs, they had to fit into computer chassis or laptop drive bays built for HDDs, so they had to conform to HDD dimensions. However, there's no requirement for the SSD to match the shape of a typical HDD as it's more evident today.

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