EVGA SuperNova NEX1500W Power Supply Review @Hi Tech Legion
     Sun, Sep 23 2012 | 9:10A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As simple an item as a PSU seems, there are times when one really sticks out, like the EVGA SuperNova NEX1500 Classified. At 1500 watts, the EVGA NEX1500 is certainly capable of massive power, but it`s the features that will get your eyebrows to raise. For starters, the NEX1500 is selectable single or multi-rail in its 12V operation, and can be Overclocked up to an impressive 1650 watts (just in case 1500 watts wasn`t impressive enough, already) with these ratings being continuous power. Not spikes or peaks, 100% continuous. Both the rail configuration and OC mode can be controlled by the included software which monitors and adjusts the PSU by way of USB header hookup."

Kingston HyperX X2 Grey Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 2133Mhz KHX2133C9AD3X2K2/4GX Desktop Memory @ TestFreaks
     Sat, Sep 22 2012 | 12:11P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If youve been involved with computers for a while youd know that all ram is not created equal. If you consider yourself an enthusiast you owe it to yourself to use good quality ram from a reputable company. Kingston is one such company and their Hyper X line is the epitome of enthusiast performance and quality. Even if you aren`t an enthusiast though your system can surely benefit from high performance ram with great timings and fast speeds as virtually everything is dependant on it in one way or another. Today for review Ive got a 4gb set of Kingston Hyper X X2 Grey Series DDR3 ram and from my testing its not bad at all."

Asrock X79 Extreme11 @ Pro-Clockers
     Sat, Sep 22 2012 | 11:09A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
But just when we thought they would not be able to top the feature rich X79 Extreme9 they up the ante with the granddaddy of them all with the Extreme11 featuring the same X79 chipset from Intel. The Extreme11 comes in at a very hefty price tag of $649 but ASRock did not hold out when it came down to packing the board with everything they had and more. Granted I could not fork over the money to obtain one of those off the shelf but there are many that can. So, is if worth it even to them? Let us check it out first."

Asus ROG Xonar Phoebus @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Sep 22 2012 | 11:09A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
 In the PC audio world, there is a major divide as far as people who find onboard audio more than enough and users who absolutely must run a sound card. In recent years, onboard sound has improved considerably. But no matter how much they improve it, it main flaw is being on the motherboard itself and not a separate circuit. When it comes to sound cards, there are just a few top manufactures with Asus being one. Asus recently introduced a new sound card focused on the gaming market under their ROG (Republic of Gaming) line called the ROG Xonar Phoebus. I?ve had it running in my gaming system, today we will talk about my experience thus far."

BIOSTAR Hi-Fi Z77X Intel Z77 Motherboard Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sat, Sep 22 2012 | 11:09A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The BIOSTAR Hi-Fi Z77X is certainly a motherboard for designed for audiophiles. We like that BIOSTAR was able to isolate the audio chip from the rest of the board and use an EMI shield along with high-quality components to improve onboard sound. Audio testing is very tough and while we were able to see some differences in RightMark Audio Analyzer, it was hard to..."

SteelSeries Sensei MLG Pro Grade Laser Mouse Review
     Sat, Sep 22 2012 | 9:28A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Whether we`re talking about car manufacturers, software developers or in our case electronics and PC hardware/peripherals manufacturers there have been plenty of times when we`ve seen many of them release the same product they had in the past with just minor improvements (facelifts and slightly improved specs for cars for example) which most of the time are not really that crucial to warrant the introduction of a brand new product/model. Personally i never liked that kind of business since in a way means that the previous owners of the same pretty much product paid the same amount of money to get something inferior (even if just by little) than what others have now. I am fine however when sometimes (although not very often) we get to see the introduction of an improved product version which sits on top of a particular line (such as factory OCed cards and fast car editions) and the latest gaming mouse by SteelSeries called the Sensei MLG (Major League Gaming) is exactly that."

Corsair Vengeance 2000 Wireless 7.1 Gaming Headset Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Sat, Sep 22 2012 | 9:01A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair`s Vengeance 2000 seems to combine everything a gamer could possibly want in a headset: virtual 7.1 surround sound capabilities, long distance wireless operation and lightweight construction. But in a market filled with competing solutions (some of which are Corsair`s own), will its $150 price turn some people away?* *"

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.
