G.Skill TridentX DDR3-2400 8GB Dual Channel Memory Kit Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Tue, Sep 25 2012 | 9:16A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This time around were taking a look at G.Skills TridentX series. Starting at 2133Mhz and going all the way up to 2800Mhz, the TridentX Series is brutally fast. A black and red theme well suited to ASUS ROG series or ASRocks Fatal1ty series, it looks awesome if youre the kind of person who likes oversized or extreme styling. The kit G.Skill have sent us is the middle of the spectrum; 2400Mhz, yet its only CAS 10 speeds, with high speeds with such low latency this kit promises to be a strong performer. Lets check it out!"

GeForce 9800 GT vs GeForce 660 GTX review
     Tue, Sep 25 2012 | 9:16A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,We place the GeForce 9800 GT vs GeForce 660 GTX in a quick four page article slash review. Demographics show that a lot of end-users who purchased their PC a couple of years ago very likely still have that GeForce 9800 GT. NVIDIA`s demographics show that the people that are still using that card (and apparently it is a lot of them) are bound to upgrade, and the most logical step is the GeForce TX 660. So why not have a quick peek at how these two cards performs -- the old versus the new. Read the article here."

Giada Mini PC A51 Review @ TestFreaks
     Tue, Sep 25 2012 | 9:16A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I always thought an HTPC had to be a big, basically full sized computer, or at least something with at least a microATX motherboard in it with a standard video card along with a decent CPU. My thoughts on that have changed recently since Ive got to spend some time with the product Ive got for review today which is the Giada Mini PC A51. This little PC is whats called a Nettop as its close to a Netbook really but its not portable. The A51 features an AMD T56N CPU with a Radeon HD 6320 integrated graphics chip which is capable of 1080P playback on your HDTV via the built-in HDMI connection. The A51 also has built-in wi-fi, Ethernet and Bluetooth so youve got connection choices as well, its also Windows 7 compatible and to top it off it only uses 30 watts of power. The A51 is very small, you can easily hide it among your other home theater components or even mount it to the back of a monitor if you want to use it as a regular PC for everyday use. So read on to learn about an inexpensive Mini PC that would make a great addition to any home theater setup or it could be used as a light duty computer for your everyday needs. "

Posted by: STAFF
1.html,We review one more Gigabyte GeForce GTX 660 it is the Windforce OC model The Gigabyte GeForce GTX 660 Windforce OC comes with a dual-slot Windforce cooler that is incredibly silent yet manages to keep the card at very cool temps, and it`s even factory overclocked for you. Have a peek as this card should be somewhere at the top of you list. Combined with Ulra Durable component selection you may expect something long-lasting and well performing. "

Hydra 31 HDMI Cable Switch Review @ TestFreaks
     Tue, Sep 25 2012 | 9:10A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
HDTVs and home theaters system are great, most of us have one and mostly everything these days is HDMI which is nice as its just one simple connection for everything. What isnt nice is the fact that you can quickly run out of HDMI connections on your TV, I know I did so I run a few through the home theater stereo system and I found thats still not enough for everything I have. I found myself having to manually unplug and then plug in the device I want to use at times or use an alternate connection method like composite for said devices. Up for review today I have the Sewell Hydra 31 HDMI Cable Switch that allow you to connect three HDMI devices to one HDMI connection on your HDTV or theater system. The Hydra consists of four cables, three input and one output with a very small push button switch in the middle and the best part is that it doesnt need an external power source. So read on to learn more "

Dell Inspiron 13z Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Mon, Sep 24 2012 | 4:30P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Dell Inspiron 13z is a stylish looking ultraportable, with a clear design identity and reasonable price. Though not quite an ultrabook thanks to a few unchecked boxes on Intel`s specification listit`s a tad too thick, and it lacks the flash cache needed for speedy boot timesit`s still a decent portable performer."

Dell has even included factory calibrated settings which allow it to attain near-perfection without any tweaking.  Sound too good to be true?  Well, it isn`t. "

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.
