Thermaltake New Soprano Case Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Tue, Feb 19 2013 | 1:45A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Thermaltake`s New Soprano mid-tower case is intended for quiet computing use. As with previous Soprano cases, the New Soprano chassis features a curved front door design but with a more modest look, compared to the aggressive style of Thermaltake cases. The New Soprano mid-tower case has a pair of USB 3.0 and a pair of USB 2.0 on the front I/O, as well as a covered SATA docking station on top for 2.5 or 3.5 inch drives. Both side panels of the New Soprano case are lined with sound-dampening foam and the 120mm and 200mm pre-installed fans are mounted with rubber inserts to further reduce vibrations and noise. The Thermaltake New Soprano comes in both standard all-black mid-tower with aluminum door cover as well as a snow edition with a contrasting all-black interior."

     Mon, Feb 18 2013 | 4:23P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So we know the concept of a tablet with keyboard dock has potential but mobile operating systems are not necessarily the perfect solution. Well, until Windows 8 and Windows RT began offering a different experience with the release of the Microsoft Surface recently. Now Dell are looking to take on the Surface, and existing tablets with the XPS 10 running Windows RT and we have one to test today."

How to Install Google Chrome on the Amazon Kindle Fire HD @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, Feb 18 2013 | 9:30A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As you may know I have recently added a Kindle Fire HD to my gadget list. I actually really like the device. You can read my lengthy review on it here. Amazon tries to keep you in their ecosystem with the Kindle Fire HD. As such you can only download apps that are in Amazons App store. This really does limit you. Amazons silk browser is alright, but there are plenty of better browsers available for Android. Amazon blocks them from their app store, but you are still able to install them. In this guide we will show you how to easily install Google Chrome on your Amazon Kindle Fire HD. This process shouldnt take that long and the best part you do not even have to root your Kindle Fire HD! Lets get started!"

Crucial Ballistix Tactical LP & Sport VLP 1600MHz DDR3 Memory Kit Review @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Feb 18 2013 | 9:04A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Crucial Ballistic Sport VLP module stands just 18.75mm tall and the Crucial Ballistix Tatical LP is 25.50mm in height. A normal DDR3 memory module module with a heatspreader on it is around 32mm in height, so these are substantially lower. Super high-end performance memory like the Kingston HyperX T1 module stands 60.95mm tall, but the Corsair Dominator GTX module tops them all at 64.30mm tall!"

Posted by: STAFF
Small form factor systems are getting increasingly popular. With the amount of power in and features in new micro ATX and smaller motherboards means many people are opting for them over the traditional ATX motherboards. They not only cost less but allow you to build a system that is not a pain in the you know what to take to LAN parties.

NVIDIA Free-to-Play Review
     Sun, Feb 17 2013 | 8:08P | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As I said earlier, all three of these games are enjoyable and fun because they are. They`re also different games, so naturally they are enjoyable and fun in different ways and for different reasons. PlanetSide 2 I feel is fun and enjoyable in what I feel are the most important ways, of these three. World of Tanks is also fun and enjoyable, but is lacking in design elements that I believe are important for the experience of any game. Hawken seems to exist as a manifestation of our desires for big things and big explosions, which does make it fun and enjoyable, but almost relies on that instead of a solid gameplay experience, like what you get with the other two games."

GIGABYTE Z77X-UP7 Intel Z77 Motherboard Review @ Legit Reviews

All in all I have to say that the GIGABYTE Z77X-UP7 is a great board and it`s been a pleasure to work with over the past couple of weeks. Despite having the rather high price tag of $399.99 I would easily recommend the Z77X-UP7 to anyone looking for a top of the line motherboard..."

AZZA Silentium 920 Quiet Case Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Sun, Feb 17 2013 | 12:26P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AZZA has a new remedy for this in the form of the Silentium 920. The brand new Silentium 920 is equipped with sound dampening material all around the interior of the case and throw in some low quiet spinning fans, you have the makings of a system that could be used in any room in the house. And to throw another twist into the formula, the Silentium looks nothing like AZZA`s other cases."
