Acid Rain Custom Sleeved Extensions Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Wed, Jul 24 2013 | 10:08A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to building computers, one of the last skills that you learn is cable management. For most beginners its accomplishment enough to simply put a rig together and have it post. Eventually though you will want to learn to control and organize all those wires powering and connecting your precious components. For some though, simply organizing and hiding their wiring isnt enough. And for those with the drive for a perfect looking rig, nothing compares with custom sleeving for your wires. This can be an expensive, time consuming, and sometimes an aggravating task. Luckily there are options! One of these is to have a set of custom sleeved extensions made for your build. Today we will be taking a look at a full set of custom extensions made by Acid Rain Sleeving and Modding."

Silicon Power Blaze B20 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive
     Wed, Jul 24 2013 | 10:08A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I remember a time when in the market you could only find USB flash drives by a handful of companies (the well-established ones) so it didn`t really take more than just a few minutes for you to pick the one you liked the most especially since all their performance levels were nearly identical (and if by some miracle a really faster model got released well you immediately knew which one it was). Today things have changed massively and so if you walk to the USB flash drive section of pretty much any store you will find a large number of models from an equally large number of manufacturers making it quite hard to pick the right one for the job (providing of course you don`t just care about the size or looks). That being said the sheer number of USB flash drive models currently in the market makes it impossible for us to test all of them in order to make it easier for all of you to know what it is that you are really getting with your hard earned money but giving up is not in our vocabulary so today we will be taking yet another thorough look at one such device the Blaze B20 32GB USB 3.0 flash drive by Silicon Power."

Thermaltake Urban S21 Elegant Mid Tower Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Wed, Jul 24 2013 | 9:17A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Once we got the call from John at Fractal Design about starting a review partnership, one of the first things I did was run over to their website and took a look at their entire lineup. Next was a big fat YES, we would love to review some Fractal Design gear. Take a look at their products yourself. You will see nothing but style, sleekness, classy and simplistic cases. So, jumping into the first product, we will bring to you will be the new Arc Midi R2. This particular case is an improvement over of an older R2 case or a revision it. The mid tower is geared for individuals looking for style on the outside but able to build the essence of a gamer rig on the inside. Designed with unparalleled cooling, space and various other aspects, we have a feeling that the Arc Midi could be one of the best cases out today."

We previously evaluated the Antec HCG-750M, and it left us with a good impression. We will now review its bigger brother, the HCG-850M. Sharing the same features with the aforementioned unit and having been made by the same OEM, Seasonic, we have pretty high expectations, too."

CM Storm QuickFire Stealth (Cherry MX Blue) Keyboard Review @ HiTech Legion
     Tue, Jul 23 2013 | 11:23A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The CM Storm QuickFire Stealth is a compact mechanical keyboard. The QuickFire Stealth gets its small size by eliminating the often unused number pad. CM Storm uses high quality Cherry MX switches providing for a lifespan of 50 million keystrokes. One of the features that are unique about the QuickFire Stealth is that the keycaps do not have the characters printed on the top of them instead they are printed on the front of the keycaps. The keyboard board is coated with rubber and features a steel plate to add even more durability to the keyboard. You can remove the braided cable off of the keyboard for easy transport, plus there are keyboard shortcuts for turning off the windows key and Multimedia controls./"

Thermaltake Urban S21 Elegant Mid Tower Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Tue, Jul 23 2013 | 9:17A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Chances are we will not be able to get all the things on the list but we were able to get one. That one product would be the Thermaltake Urban S21 chassis, which is a smaller version of the S71 and is another item on our list. Are you curious to know what either of these cases has to offer? Well, we are going to talk about the Urban S21 today and just imagine a larger version with more features when wondering about the S71. We have studied many cases from Thermaltake in the past and a large majority of them have been all out gaming cases. A couple has been what many would consider simplistic enclosures. But none could really be considered elegant. A word that is often associated with a few other manufacturers. One major difference is this one case is affordable. The Thermaltake Urban S21 is a very elegant case that would definitely fit the needs of many from a gamer to a typical office worker and everything in between."

Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 Cube Case Review @ HiTech Legion
     Tue, Jul 23 2013 | 6:19A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Corsair Carbide Series Air 540 is a mid-tower case which is designed to provide maximum airflow across your mainboard components. The Air 540`s dimensions are 415mm x 332mm x 458mm which actually make the case cube shaped. The Corsair Air 540`s two compartments are separated by a motherboard tray. The left side which is used to house all the components that attach to your motherboard as well as three pre-installed 140mm fans (two for intake and one for exhaust) and two Hot Swappable bottom mounted 3.5/2.5HDD/SSD caddies. The right side behind the motherboard tray has plenty of room for cable management it will also accommodate up to a 200mm Power Supply has a removable 4 bay SSD tray and will hold up to 2 5.25 drives. This is not where the versatility ends by removing the front 140mm fans the Carbide Series Air 540 can hold up to a 360mm radiator as well as a 240mm radiator at the top. The Air 540 is constructed of steel and plastic and much to our surprise it was not very heavy even with a full build./"

Antec GX700 @ techPowerUp
     Mon, Jul 22 2013 | 4:07P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Antec GX700 is the first of the new series aiming to offer a stylish chassis with a few very cool visual- and functional details at an affordable price point. Clearly going for a military theme, we will see if this chassis can defend itself in the $50 case category or if it shoots nothing but blanks at the competition."

     Mon, Jul 22 2013 | 11:55A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Yesterday I shared open-source Linux graphics benchmarks showing the Intel Ivy Bridge performance improving on Mesa 9.2 over the earlier releases of this important open-source Linux graphics driver component. However, for the latest-generation Intel Haswell graphics, Mesa 9.2 is an even more important upgrade.
