AMD FX-8350 CPU: Piledriver Arrives
     Sat, Nov 24 2012 | 12:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD's new flagship processor offers a decent boost in speed over its predecessors but without significantly improved energy efficiency or pricing, it fails to alter the desktop CPU landscape.

ASUS PadFone 2, Second to none
     Sat, Nov 24 2012 | 12:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The first PadFone showed a clear direction as to what PadFone 2 could be, and we’ve noticed that some of our wishes have been granted as soon as we’ve opened the box. The PadFone 2 Station, i.e. the tablet part of this symbiosis has become a much more beautiful and elegant device.

REVIEW: HIS 7750 IceQ X Turbo @ PureOverclock
     Sat, Nov 24 2012 | 9:11A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We`ve also seen several cards from HIS, and have noted their ability to provide good products at affordable prices. The 7750 IceQ X Turbo is the latest value-oriented card in the HIS lineup, and it sports some great styling and an aggressive factory oveclock out of the box. Retailing for about $120, this card is rather affordable, and while we don`t expect it to be a gaming powerhouse, it could prove very enticing to gamers on a modest budget. Let`s take a closer look at the HIS 7750 IceQ X Turbo and see how it fares."

Rosewill RK-9100 Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sat, Nov 24 2012 | 9:11A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The individually backlit keys are very nicely done and the Cherry MX Blue switches make fun clicky sounds as you type away. Typing accuracy was very good on the RK-9100 and after some use you get used to the way the keys work. For example you don`t have to press them all the way down, so once you learn how the switch works you can really fly along. In games the keyboard was great and we loved the gaming mode that disabled the Windows and Application keys! Rosewill has done a very good job with the RK-9100 in terms of modes and we can`t wait to see what the next version will be able to do..."

OCZ Vertex 3 240GB SSD VTX3-25SAT3-240G Review
     Sat, Nov 24 2012 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"On the test bench today is a speedy little black box called the OCZ Vertex 3. If you haven't spoiled your computer yet with a Solid State Drive (SSD) yet, now's the time -- SSDs have never been more affordable! The Vertex 3 is a great little 240GB SSD and just the right capacity to install Windows 7 along with a bunch of programs onto, without worrying for drive space. Since this SSD is rated for 6Gb/s SATA III, you'll find it quicker than first generation SATA II drives and light years faster than a standard mechanical hard drive when it comes to booting up or launching programs."

Beginners Guides: Hard Drive Data Recovery
     Fri, Nov 23 2012 | 9:16P | Beginners Guides | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Killed a hard drive without backing up? Deleted your babies first photo and already emptied the recycling bin? Not to worry, you can probably recover your data with the help of this guide from PCSTATS.

"The loss of factory hard drive capacity seems to be an increasingly common occurrence with very large capacity (ie. 1TB) hard drives, but it's not specific to any one hard drive manufacturer. It can happen to brand new drives or existing hard drives full of data. In either case the data portion of the drive isn't generally affected. If a new or existing hard drive in your computer suddenly pops up with a capacity of 32MB, or another value equally small compared to the true drive size, don't freak out, the data should still be there."

Beginners Guides: How To Install/Remove AMD Socket FM1 CPU and Heatsink
     Fri, Nov 23 2012 | 9:15P | Beginners Guides | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com
AMD made several noteworthy accomplishments with its socket FM1 'Llano' processor, the most important being the integration of a graphics core directly onto a CPU die which substantially reduced motherboard complexity. Major architectural changes were also brought forth by AMD's Fusion family of processors, yet like the socket AM2/AM2+/AM3 processors that preceded it AMD kept the socket and heatsink mounting system totally compatible. Installing a socket FM1 AMD A8-series processor into a motherboard is not too difficult, unless you've never done anything like this before and in that case a little guidance is called for.

Logitech UE Mobile Boombox review: temple of boom?
     Fri, Nov 23 2012 | 6:22P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Quote: For its small size the Mobile Boombox sounds very good, even with the volume maxed out the sound doesn't distort. The volume doesn't go very high, however, and the sound is very directional. Like most Bluetooth speakers, the Boombox sounds better when you hook it up with the 3.5 mm jack instead of Bluetooth.

Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 13 Ultrabook Review
     Fri, Nov 23 2012 | 6:22P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Lenovo's IdeaPad Yoga 13 ultrabook is designed to give users flexibility in a way other ultrabooks don't: This ultrabook features a unique, dual-articulating hinge that lets the Yoga 13's touchscreen fold 360 degrees, converting the machine from notebook mode to tablet mode. Thanks to its special hinge design, the Yoga 13 can also be used in "stand" or "tent" modes as well. The IdeaPad Yoga 13 runs Windows 8. And when used in notebook mode, the Yoga 13 gives you the full desktop experience of Windows 8 with the added benefit of a touchscreen. In tablet, tent, or stand modes though, you'll appreciate all of the touch-friendly controls and features found within Windows 8...

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.
