ASUS T-Topology Explained - Higher Memory Overclocking @ ocaholic
     Sat, Aug 18 2012 | 3:39P | Overclocking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Crosshair V Formula-Z and the Sabertooth 990FX R2.0, ASUS is going to release two new premium AMD motherboards, one for the TUF and the other for the ROG series. You can expect some changes and also some new features for AMDs latest FX Bulldozer CPUs as well as AMDs upcoming Piledriver processors. The biggest improvement concerns the implementation of ASUS` T-Topology on AMD motherboards. The manufacturers latest Z77 motherboards already incorporate this new feature and ASUS promises that overclockers can reach higher memory frequencies, when placing four DIMMs. ASUS was also working on the power delivery to the DIMM slots which should also help reaching higher clock frequencies. In this article we`re going to explain what is special about ASUS` T-Topology technology and why it helps with overclocking."

Sharkfin Self-Molding Earbuds Review - XSReviews
     Sat, Aug 18 2012 | 10:38A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Like it or not, the headphone brands from big-name artists like Dr Dre, 50 Cent and Ludacris, have opened up a new market for quality sound in headphones and earbuds. However while style and substance are there in varying quantities and they`re great for everyday use or while in a relaxed state, often the bulky designs aren`t perfect for working out with. Even the best earbuds will occasionally fall out, or they`ll get sweaty and slide around; what`s the solution? Apparently it`s this sort of thing: Sharkfin Self-molding Ear Buds. They fit around the earphones and mold to the shape of your ear, holding them in place while resisting sweat and movement. Let`s put these claims to the test. A link to the article would be much appreciated."

[Tech ARP] BIOS Option Of The Week - NVIDIA GPU Ex
     Sat, Aug 18 2012 | 10:08A | BIOS | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meager beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition. Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend. This week, we will be taking a look at the *NVIDIA GPU Ex *setting."

RAIDON Hybrid Runner iH2420-2S-S2 Review
     Sat, Aug 18 2012 | 9:04A | Optical Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although casual users, gamers and enthusiasts have always been our primary focus group Ive also done my best to secure and test several devices targeted towards professionals and enterprise users in general during the past years. We all know that in many occasions professionals and enthusiasts are after the same high end performance parts but professionals and enterprise users alike also seek extra protection for their sensitive data and that`s mainly as to why they belong in an entirely different focus group. Now two days ago we tested a dual bay 3.5 USB 3.0 RAID 0/1 enclosure by Akitio but what about people who want fast performance and reliability in a far smaller package? Well RAIDON may just have the answer with their latest Hybrid Runner iH2420-2S-S2 2.5 SSD/HDD combo device."
