Asustek, Gigabyte push for annual motherboard shipment goal
     Mon, Sep 17 2012 | 3:27P | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Seeing the PC market is remaining weak in the third quarter, top-2 motherboard vendors Asustek Computer and Gigabyte Technology have both recently dropped their motherboard prices in Europe and China in the hopes to achieve their shipment goal for 2012, with Gigabyte estimated to ship 5.4 million units in the third quarter, only slightly behind Asustek's 5.8-6 million units.

PC Power & Cooling Silencer Mk III review
     Mon, Sep 17 2012 | 3:08P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The PC Power & Cooling Silencer Mk III is a very good power supply. Ironically, the main point of criticism we have for the Silencer is that it's not that silent. PC Power & Cooling wins in two areas: looks and price. The white housing and modular cables with XLR-like screw connectors are unique qualities of this PSU. And while the pricetag of £229 isn't cheap, it's still 10 percent more affordable than the competition.

Today NVIDIA launched their new GTX 660. Gigabyte has sent us their overclocked GTX 660 Windforce OC which also comes with a large dual-fan cooler that provides extremely low temperatures in both idle and load. The overclock out of the box helps to gain some performance on the HD 7870."

Review: OCZ Agility 4 256 GB @ Ocaholic
     Mon, Sep 17 2012 | 11:44A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Right after the Vertex 4, OCZ released the Agility 4. Traditionally the Agility series is a bit slower than the Vertex series but therefore they charge less for these drive. Never the less, at 410 Megabyte per second sequential write, 420 Megabyte per second sequential read as well as 48`000 IOPS randon read and 85`000 IOPS random write the drive is everything but slow."

EnGenius XtraRange ESR750H Dual-Band Wireless-N Router Review @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Sep 17 2012 | 10:28A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After using the EnGenius ESR750H router for a few weeks, I really fell in love with some aspects of this sub-$100 router namely, the size, power consumption and user interface. Because the ESR750H is outfitted with 2 external 5 dBi antennas, we really expected the router to have a larger range of service than that of the other routers we have in our arsenal with internal antennas..."

Cisco Linksys E4200 Maximum Performance Dual-Band N Router Review
     Mon, Sep 17 2012 | 9:23A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As we all know most internet providers supply their own DSL modems (and modem/routers) to their subscribers free of charge most of the time, however how many people care to check just how good that device really is and act on it? Well most people i know really don`t care and thus they remain with the same modem/routers for many years, at least until and if they switch ISP`s (Internet Service Providers) in which case they will most likely use the new model. Certainly something that someone gives you free of charge is always welcome in my book but we all need to know that every ISP out there takes offers from many DSL modem/router manufacturers around the globe and in the end what they care most about is the best offer which unfortunately at the same time usually means lesser quality materials and of course features/performance. Because of that many people (the ones who don`t have cable) choose to either pair a good modem with a good router (for more flexibility and features) or purchase an all in one modem/router device. So today we are taking a rather thorough look at one of the latest routers to hit the market by Linksys a subsidiary of Cisco, the E4200 Maximum Performance Dual-Band N Router."

ASUS GeForce GTX 660 DirectCU II Video Card Review

NVIDIA is launching the new GeForce GTX 660 GPU, codenamed GK106. We have a retail ASUS GeForce GTX 660 DirectCU II custom video card fully evaluated against a plethora of competition at this price point. This brand new GPU aims for a price point just under the GTX 660 Ti but still promises to deliver exceptional 1080p gaming with AA.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 660
     Mon, Sep 17 2012 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The GeForce GTX 660 provides a surprisingly high level of performance given the MSRP of just $230 making it roughly 23% cheaper than last month’s Ti version. The performance was unexpected for the simple reason that the GTX 660 was just 14% slower than the GTX 660 Ti at 1920x1200 which in turn meant that it was 10% faster than the Radeon HD 7850.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 Review
     Mon, Sep 17 2012 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last month, Nvidia shook up the enthusiast GPU market by launching its most affordable Kepler offering yet. At $299, the GK104-based GeForce GTX 660 Ti was $100 cheaper than the GTX 670, while being just 13% slower. Likewise, the GTX 660 Ti was 11% faster and more power efficient than the competing Radeon HD 7870 when testing at 1920x1200 on most games, despite matching it on price. Predictably, AMD neutralized that threat by slashing prices. This balanced things out, with products from both major GPU makers finding their rightful place in the market. As is often the case, Nvidia dominated the premium segment, while AMD had stronger footing in the mainstream.

ASUS GeForce GTX 560 Ti DirectCU II TOP Video Card Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, Sep 17 2012 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS has already made a name for themselves as the top motherboard manufacturer for quite some time now, but they are really making a name for themselves in the graphics card market as well. Their specialized cards use quality components, come with better cooling than the reference design and even sometimes are overclocked. The card we are looking at today is no different. ASUSs GeForce GTX 560 Ti DirectCU II TOP comes factory overclocked up to 900MHz, uses ASUSs own DirectCU II cooler and features a super alloy design on the power components. Lets take a look at this card and see what it can do!"

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.
