17 gaming monitors round-up
     Tue, Sep 18 2012 | 12:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Speed isn't everything of course. A monitor still needs to have decent colour rendering and be reasonably priced. The BenQ XL2420T is far from cheap, but you can adjust the height, rotate it, and it comes with many connectors and an integrated USB hub. In terms of response times, it scores the best. It has a 120 Hz refresh rate, and the other test results are also very good.

mSATA SSDs review: Adata XPG SX300 128GB vs Crucial
     Tue, Sep 18 2012 | 12:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We were kind of expecting it, but it's nice to see concrete proof that mSATA SSDs are as fast as their 2.5-inch counterparts, despite their small size. The Adata SX300 128GB scores almost exactly the same in every benchmark as the Adata SX900 128GB that is based on the same controller. The Crucial m4 256GB mSATA performs the same as the standard m4 256GB.

     Tue, Sep 18 2012 | 11:48A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For our readers in the field of IT, data recovery whether from a dying disk, virus infection, or a dying system is a common occurrence. While slave drive kits work, they can look messy. Thermaltakes solution to this is its line of BlacX vertical docking stations. Benchmark Reviews will be looking at the updated Thermaltake BlacX 5G docking station, which will give users SATA 6Gb/s and SuperSpeed USB-3.0 support allowing for the fastest possible transfer speeds. This review will be evaluating whether the Thermaltake BlacX 5G dock is something every IT department should have or if there are better solutions on the market."

REVIEW: Sapphire 7970 Vapor-X @ PureOverclock
     Tue, Sep 18 2012 | 11:44A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Sapphire 7970 Vapor-X comes with a custom cooler, and if history is any indication, we expect very big things from this Vapor-X technology, as Sapphire typically produces some of the coolest-running Radeon cards out there. Perhaps more importantly, however, the 7970 Vapor-X sports a factory overclock, to the tune of a 1GHz clock speed. This should provide enough of a speed boost for it to better competes against the competition`s offerings. Can the Sapphire 7970 Vapor-X live up to the expectations? Let`s find out."

GIGABYTE GTX 680 Super Overclock Review @ Vortez
     Tue, Sep 18 2012 | 9:53A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There has been quite the commotion caused by GIGABYTE over their Super Overclock GTX680, not because it is one of the fastest factory overclocked cards available, nor because it is also one of the most expensive single core GPUs available. The ruffling of many feather came when it was revealed in Taipei to have 5 fans. Yes, that`s right FIVE! Now, I will be the first to admit that when our news reporter first posted this news I assumed it to be some sort of concept that would never see the light of day. Surely GIGABYTE would be insane to release a card which uses 5 small fans to cool a triple slot heatsink, especially when their Windforce x3 card does it so efficiently. Nevertheless, they have released it. It`s available as I type and should you get to see and hold one in person you will appreciate that Super is just one of many adjectives that could be used by GIGABYTE to describe it. Super just doesn`t sit quite right for something so monolithic in appearance. I am relishing this card more than any other at present simply because it promises so much. Can it deliver on those promises though?"

Sapphire FleX HD 7770 GHz Edition @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Sep 18 2012 | 9:28A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sapphires selection of cards for the HD 7000 series has been impressive to say the least. On top of having stock and overclocked versions of every model, they also have a few different models like the Vapor-X and FleX, each serving a different purpose. The vapor-X models having ungraded cooling and their FLeX models have improved support for multiple monitors. We have taken a look at everything else from their HD 7770 lineup; its only natural that we take a look at the HD 7770 as well. We know that FleX cards can be great deals for people looking for a cheaper way to run multiple monitors without having to pick up active Displayport adapters or Displayport monitors, lets take a look at the HD 7770 FleX and see if it holds up to the FleX name."

Giada Mini PC i35G Review
     Tue, Sep 18 2012 | 9:01A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The i35G is a cute and small computer from Giada, that can be used for light Internet browsing, watching movies, or playing old games, this while keeping the power consumption to a low level. The chassis comes with active cooling, and the fan speed is being ramped up depending on the temperatures. A Media Center remote is also included inside the box for added value, along with a HDMI cable and a plastic transparent dock to place the computer into the optimal position.

Bruce Lee MIMOBOT 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Review @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Sep 18 2012 | 9:01A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Mimoco debuted the Legends of MIMOBOT series earlier this year and so far you can get Einstein or Bruce Lee character based storage drives. Bruce Lee was and still is the most influential martial artist of all time, so it only makes sense that he becomes part of the Legends of MIMOBOT series. The Bruce Lee MIMOBOT series is available in 8GB, 16GB, 32GB, & 64GB capacities with the prices being $19.99, $29.99, $39.99 and $69.99.

Intel's Game Changer, One Size Fits All Haswell
     Tue, Sep 18 2012 | 9:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel's next-generation CPU, codenamed Haswell, was the major star of IDF. One aspect of the chip we haven't talked about at length, however, is its emphasis on reduced power consumption. When Intel announced that its Ivy Bridge mobile products would target 17W for mainstream systems, it made headlines. Pushing Haswell down to 10W is an even greater achievement, but hitting these targets requires a great deal of collaboration and cooperation...

LEPA Cooling Fan Collection @ Pro-Clockers

Posted by: STAFF
And to add to this we are also asking them to look as good as they perform. At your local PC shop you can find fans of various color combinations, sizes and lighting effects. Our reasoning here today to take a look at some new blowers from LEPA, the Chopper, Casino and the Vortex are just a trio of new fans LEPA is excited about. So, lets take a brief look at the new additions."

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.
