3D Printer Round-up: Cube 3D, Up!, and Solidoodle
     Sat, Dec 29 2012 | 12:01P | Printers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
3D printing is a fascinating new technology and an exploding new market. The process involved is pretty basic actually. Heat up some plastic, and sort of like that Play-Doh Fun Factory you were so fond of as a kid, you extrude the melted plastic out to create objects of magnificence -- because you built it yourself... It all started back in 2007 when the first RepRap machine was built. The idea behind RepRap was to design a machine that could build complex parts in three dimensions using extruded molten plastic and that machine could also "self-replicate" or build a copy of itself. Since then 3D printers of all types have emerged from the community, so we decided to reach out to a few of the more prominent names in 3D printing and do our usual round-up two step with them.

E3iO Snack Series SK02 Desktop PC Review
     Sat, Dec 29 2012 | 12:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While we still believe that the best system is the one you build yourself there are other options for those with the knowledge and knowhow but lack the time and dedication required to put together the perfect system. For situations like this we can turn to boutique builders like E3iO for a solution.

Assassins Creed 3 @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Dec 29 2012 | 11:55A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Innovation is a tough thing in the gaming industry. Not just coming up with something new and exciting that will get fans of all ages to line up to play, but once you have those fans you must innovate to keep them. This is something that the Assassins Creed franchise has had great success with. With the original release of Assassins Creed, it was something that gamers had never seen before and it was awesome. The gameplay got a bit repetitive and bland at times, but Ubisoft quickly improved on it with the next installment in the series giving gamers more things to do and a more in depth storyline. After that followed multiplayer and countless hours of online fun. I am extremely excited for this review of Assassins Creed 3 because it is set around the American Revolution, a time that has not been looked at before in the franchise and an interesting piece of history in my eyes. Sit back and grab your muskets because The British and coming, the British are coming!"

HE Mouse review: He-Man ergonomics?
     Sat, Dec 29 2012 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HE Mouse definitely demands that you hold your hand in a different position than with a normal mouse. Those familiar with the RSI symptoms will notice this right away and probably benefit from it. Unfortunately that doesn't mean we can recommend this mouse without reservations, because it is simply not accurate enough.

     Sat, Dec 29 2012 | 9:02A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Some people feel that overclocking is a highly complex matrix of voltages and timings but are quick to forget that overclocking is all around us and can be purchased thru any of the retail channels.

GPU benchmarks - Dirt: Showdown
     Sat, Dec 29 2012 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Dirt: Showdown runs great on three monitors, and AMD even gave it the EyeFinity Optimized stamp of approval. We have to admit that playing a racing game like this on three monitors definitely adds to the immersion. You also don't need a high-end graphics card to run this game on 5760x1080 and Medium settings. Both the Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 and the AMD Radeon HD 7870 are fast enough to achieve 60 fps. Even the Radeon HD 7850 gets close.

CM Storm Quick Fire TK Gaming Keyboard Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Sat, Dec 29 2012 | 5:47A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Mobility is one of the current buzzwords. If a gamer wants to be part of a championship or an LAN party, the worst peripheral to transport is the keyboard, especially the mechanical ones, which are heavier. With this player in mind, CM Storm releases the Quick Fire TK, a compact version of the Quick Fire Pro that fits in a backpack. The model is also indicated for those who don`t have a lot of desktop space. Although it is small, the product features a complete numpad, multimedia and illumination controls. The only things it doesn`t do are macro recording and key configuring. Let`s describe the Quick Fire TK and then evaluate it."

Club 3D Radeon HD 7870 jokerCard 2GB review
     Fri, Dec 28 2012 | 10:50P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
You probably think that you've already seen all there is to see about AMD Radeon HD 7870 graphics cards, but the Radeon HD 7870 jokerCard 2 GB that Club 3D recently launched is something special indeed. That's because this video card isn't based on the Pitcairn GPU like the other 7870 cards, but instead the Tahiti chip that's traditionally been used for the high-end Radeon HD 7950 and 7970. That makes the 7870 jokerCard faster but not more expensive than the standard HD 7870.

Posted by: STAFF

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.
