REVIEW: BitFenix Ghost Chassis @ PureOverclock
     Wed, Dec 19 2012 | 12:24A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we have the chance to share our experience with BitFenix`s new Ghost Chassis. The BitFenix Ghost is a chassis that was designed to be a silent computing tower but not sacrifice the cooling capabilities of modern systems and accessories. The sleek, smooth and glossy exterior finish has a simple yet elegant design that really stands out from the designs we typically see. While there are few fancy bells and whistles with the exterior aesthetics, the Ghost has features that will surprise even the most avid users today."

ROCCAT Lua Gaming Mouse Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Tue, Dec 18 2012 | 11:59P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ROCCAT Lua optical gaming mouse is designed with budget gamers in mind. The ROCCAT Lua`s buttons all use high quality Omron switches to ensure durability. It has an ambidextrous V-Shaped mouse that is ideal for palm-grip users, although it could be used with any grip. The R2 Pro Optic sensor provides seven dpi modes, ranging from 250dpi to 2000dpi, that are easily switched, offering an excellent range of speed settings to suit any play style. The scroll wheel has tactile feedback for accurate scrolling and gameplay. The ROCCAT Logo on the mouse is lit by a switchable LED, allowing it to be on, off, or a breathing pattern. The LED setting can be switched using the included driver/software, along with the ability to customize the sensitivity and what each button does."

Samsung Galaxy Note II Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Tue, Dec 18 2012 | 10:55P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung`s Galaxy Note II melds several great ideas into a single design. A massive 5.5 screen interacts perfectly with a highly responsive stylus and there is processing power aplenty from its quad core processor. This is all wrapped up into a compact design but does the Note II truly represent the next step in mobile evolution?"

Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review
     Tue, Dec 18 2012 | 7:57P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It really seems that no matter how many PC gaming peripherals we get to test in these pages there are always more around and with Christmas just around the corner we don`t have that much left time to publish each and every single one of those reviews, at least not prior to entering 2013. The good thing however when testing gaming peripherals is that you can actually test more than just one at a time (for example a keyboard, a mouse, a mouse pad and a headset) and so with the recent release of several game titles such as Far Cry 3, Assassins Creed 3, Planetside 2 and Hitman absolution we had just the right material/tools with which to perform all our tests. So today we will be taking a rather thorough look on the BlackWidow Ultimate Mechanical Gaming Keyboard by Razer."

Posted by: STAFF
Today we are taking a quick look at the HP Z1 Workstation, a unique workstation in that it resides in the shell of an all-in-one computer. But not just your normal AIO - this is a 27-in 2560x1400 display with a chassis that opens up for easy access to components inside.

Crucial Ballistix Tactical LP 16GB 1600MHz DDR3 Memory Kit
     Tue, Dec 18 2012 | 4:58P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Crucial Ballistix Tactical LP 16GB 1600MHz DDR3 Memory Kit performs similarly to the Crucial Ballistix Elite 8GB 1600MHz DDR3 kit we tested previously. Overclocking attempts netted up to 15% performance gains in some of our benchmarks. Overall we found the Tactical LP kit was capable of running stable at 1866MHz with slightly relaxed timings (9-9-9-24) at 1.5v.

ASUS Maximus V Formula Review
     Tue, Dec 18 2012 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After taking some time with this board, it really met and exceeded the expectations I had for it in terms of performance and the unique feature set that this ROG board is equipped with. If you want a board that offers it all, while not totally breaking the bank, the Maximus V Formula should easily be in the running for your performance and gaming dollar. Awesome overclocking, excellent cooling, Supreme FX IV sound, gaming enhancements, software tools galore, and the great looks ASUS ROG series are known for it`s got it all."

Be Quiet! Dark Power Pro 10 650W PSU Review @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Dec 18 2012 | 9:02A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Be Quiet! is planning what many European companies have tried in the past, to infiltrate the north American consumer market; a quite bold move, considering that most companies before them have failed to reach fruitful results. Be Quiet! however is not fooling around; the company already has a strong lineup of high quality and interesting products, as well as a good base market in Europe and Asia, therefore their odds of success are not bad. Today we had a look at their high performance power supply series and we have to admit that we found the craftsmanship and design superior to that of most comparable products available today..."

BitFenix Prodigy Mini-ITX PC Case Review
     Tue, Dec 18 2012 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I`ve never been fond of HTPC (mini-ITX) systems mainly because they offer very little in terms of performance so especially for someone in my line of work that`s extremely important. Now as some of you know i do own a basic HTPC system (Intel ATOM/Nvidia ION) which i rarely use but the small enclosure it`s housed in (Antec ISK3100-150) doesn`t leave much space for anything else aside the mainboard, memory modules, an slim optical drive and a 2.5 hard disk drive. Of course there are quite a few larger HTPC cases in the market (such as the V353 by Lian-Li) that offer superior build quality and a more spacious interior for enthusiasts but the end result is not really that different mainly due to the design of the interior. Well Bitfenix seems to be aware of that issue and so just recently they launched their own HTPC (mini-ITX) solution, the quite impressive Prodigy."

TECH NEWS: Google Nexus 7 Tablet Review (16GB Wi-Fi Only)
     Mon, Dec 17 2012 | 10:31P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After Google`s foray into the consumer hardware space in 2008 with the G1, Android products have improved drastically. In 2012, it made sense to join the tablet scene, and in July, Google introduced the Nexus 7. This followed with the announcement of the 32 GB Nexus 7 in November and, with a price decrease for the 16 GB model to $199, they hit the sweet spot for tablet pricing. Priced the same as the Amazon Kindle Fire HD, and $30 cheaper than the Barnes & Nobel Nook HD in a similar 16 GB configuration, things now to seem no more than a personal preference."

The HD 8800, HD 8700, HD 8600 and HD 8500 may not be the flagship parts some were hoping for but they use AMD`s refreshed GCN architecture."

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.
