Phanteks Enthoo Primo Case Review
     Tue, Dec 03 2013 | 3:07P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to high-end full-tower cases a few models immediately come to mind: Corsair?s 900D Thermaltake?s Level 10 GT Cooler Master?s HAF-X and a couple others. There isn?t nearly as much variety for E-ATX compatible cases as there is for cases that support ATX and Micro-ATX motherboards. Perhaps this why Phanteks was keen to release their first case into this category. Enter the Enthoo Primo A premium full-tower aluminum body case with numerous new features and great compatibility for water-cooling hardware. Phanteks is among the best manufacturers of computer case fans and CPU heatsinks so one would expect that their genius in cooling innovation would carry over to the Enthoo Primo. It is quite clear that Phankteks aims to make a statement with this new case; It will be competing head on with the already established high-end full-tower cases. Benchmark reviews will take a closer look at the Enthoo Primo (mo! del PH-ES813P) to see whether or not Phantek?s first chassis deserves a place among the very best."

Xigmatek Vector P700 80-PLUS Platinum 700 Watt Power Supply Review @HiTech Legion
     Tue, Dec 03 2013 | 11:21A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Xigmatek`s new Vector P700 PSU combines distinctive styling with 80PLUS Platinum efficiency and a couple of new cooling twists. The Xigmatek Vector P700 uses new Reverse Thrust to actually run the fan backwards at startup to blow out any accumulated dust. After this initial 30 seconds, the 135mm Xigmatek fan goes into normal rotation with temperature controlled speeds for optimal quiet and cooling./"

Cooler Master GXII 550W Power Supply Review @HiTech Legion
     Tue, Dec 03 2013 | 10:29A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cooler Master`s GX II 550 Watt power supply is an 80 Plus Bronze rated PSU. The GX II 550 has been designed to support the power saving features of Intel`s Haswell CPUs and will provide USB power to charge mobile devices while the computer`s off. Feeding power to the components, there`s the standard 24-pin connector to the motherboard, a 4+4-pin 12V supply for the CPU, a pair of 6+2 pin PCI-e connectors, two cables with three SATA power connectors each, and one cable with three 4-pin Molex connectors and a floppy drive power connector.///"

HIS R9 270X IceQ X Turbo Boost 2 GB @ techPowerUp
     Tue, Dec 03 2013 | 9:15A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HIS R9 270X IceQ X Turbo Boost comes at reference design pricing of $200, which makes it the cheapest, highest-clocked R9 270X available at this time. In addition to the free overclock out of the box, you also get a better cooler that provides very low temperatures, but ends up slightly noisy."

Biostar Z87X 3D Motherboard Review @ Bjorn3D
     Tue, Dec 03 2013 | 5:21A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Biostar is one of those names you hear about but not as common as the bigger players in the component game but regardless of this they have a decent share in the more cost conscious market which is actually a very large segment to live in. Also on previous mainstream enthusiasts boards I have been rather impressed with the performance/price ratio the Biostar boards are able to pull in comparison to some of the higher priced competitors. Today we have Biostars top Z87 model which integrates their HiFi audio solution for a great audio experience should you use this for a multimedia or gaming board this one should be up for the task. The one thing that did surprise me is the lack of SLI support which means your talking single Nvidia card or crossfire depending upon your needs, but from what i have seen many users utilize a single card setup anyways especially budget builds so this may be a great low cost solution for a low cost gamer.

Tranquil PC D33217GKE NUC Case @ techPowerUp

Posted by: STAFF
Though Intel sells their NUC motherboards separately, few manufacturers offer passive NUC cases. One of the first was Tranquil PC. We take a look at their compact, passive chassis for the Gigabit i3-based NUC board to see if it manages to offer better thermal performance without a fan."

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.
