Corsair Dominator Platinum
     Fri, Oct 12 2012 | 4:02P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Corsair Dominator Platinum series of memory kits delivers visual appeal with its stylish heatsinks and built-in lighting that's actually used for subtle effect. Naturally it promises heavy duty performance which can be enabled through XMP profiles, so that's what we plan to look for in our review of the 16GB DDR3-1866 quad-channel kit.

CM Storm Ceres 400 Gaming Headset
     Fri, Oct 12 2012 | 4:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"At $49.99 MSRP, the Ceres-400 is the lowest priced headset offered under the CM Storm brand and comes in about $50 less than the top-of-the-line CM Storm Sirius 5.1 gaming headset that we reviewed previously. It lacks many of the features of high-end gaming headsets such as 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound support, but promises to provide high-class sound quality, a sturdy swivel microphone and a comfortable fit. Will this lower priced alternative bring enough firepower to compete, or will it be outgunned by its higher priced rivals?"

Xigmatek Dark Knight SD1283 Night Hawk Ed. Heatsink
     Fri, Oct 12 2012 | 3:15P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Here's what Frostytech has been able to find out. The black 'ceramic coating' on the Xigmatek Dark Knight SD1283 Night Hawk Ed. heatsink is described as "high thermal conductivity metal surface treatment" by its manufacturer; SAU Applied Materials . SAU Applied Materials is a Taiwan-based company which primarily focuses on LED related thermal products, for example the coating on thisLED MR16 light. About all we can say with certainty is that a rough black surface coating increases surface area somewhat and radiates heat more efficiently than a shiny aluminum surface.

REVIEW: ASUS GTX 650 Ti DirectCU II TOP @ PureOverclock
     Fri, Oct 12 2012 | 1:51P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti is the latest in the Kepler lineup, and while it may share a similar naming scheme as the GTX 660 Ti, it has some very distinct differences, not the least of which is a considerably lower price tag. Beyond the reference design card, however, some manufacturers are taking what appears to already be an impressive product and pushing things further, with improved power distribution, custom heatsinks for lower temperatures, factory overclocked settings, and even voltage tweaking capabilities for enthusiasts who want to extract the most out of their graphics card. ASUS is bringing all of these to consumers with the GTX 650 Ti DirectCU II TOP.?"

AMD 2nd Generation A10 5800 & A8 5600 Desktop APU Review
     Fri, Oct 12 2012 | 9:09A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The A85X chipset is equally impressive with its range of features and possibilities with eight SATA 6Gb/s ports, the ability to drive three monitors from the motherboard using the integrated graphics, the ability to double your graphics power with a $50-$80 discrete card to work in tandem with the on-die graphics and the list goes on. The CPU half of the die has been improved but is not going to set the world on fire and against Intel it is on par with the i3s. It leaves me wondering why the L3 is missing in Trinity, and what the 8MB of L3 will mean to Vishera."

The Cooler Master Storm Scout 2 chassis is another prime example of how a mid-tower chassis is supposed to be designed.

Corsair Neutron GTX 240GB SSD
     Fri, Oct 12 2012 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
" What I do really like about the Corsair Neutron GTX is that its performance is always predictable. There is no need to worry if the SSD will slow down when faced with writing incompressible data, it simply won’t. In fact, I’m quite sure that is the reason that the Corsair Neutron GTX and the OCZ Vertex 4 stand head and shoulders above the other SSDs in this article "

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.
