Cooler Master Silencio PURE Review @ Vortez
     Fri, Jul 19 2013 | 6:19A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Silencio 650 PURE is based upon the original 650. It has the same slender design which brings with it professionalism and functionality. But gone are two noteworthy aspects which you will have to read further on to discover. These cut-backs have paved the way for a lower cost end-product which Cooler Master are hoping will help encourage avid system builders with a flair for silence. So join us as we take a close look at this new PURE variant."

The History Of The Hard Drive @ ThinkComputers.org
     Thu, Jul 18 2013 | 9:17A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In 1953, engineers in IBMs California-based laboratory invented the very first hard drive. Since that first disk drive, technological advances have been made at an astonishing rate, with data capacity increasing and size and price decreasing exponentially, year on year. 60 years on, the hard drives of today are unrecognizable from the first models, which took up an entire room. Hard drives today are measured in terms of gigabytes and terabytes, rather than megabytes-an amount of data that would have been almost unimaginable in the early history of computers. Here we take a look back at the evolution of the hard drive as it grew from 5MB to 4TB."

Asus P8Z77-V LE PLUS Mainboard Review
     Thu, Jul 18 2013 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This mainboard occupies an intermediate position between the high-end and entry-level mainboards from Asus based on Intel Z77 Express chipset. It has richer functionality than the entry-level models, boasts more powerful voltage regulator, supports USB BIOS Flashback technology. At the same time, it is not as energy-efficient as the entry-level products.

     Thu, Jul 18 2013 | 8:30A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the last month or so we have covered Intel`s latest generation of CPUs in a number of ways from the initial CPU article, through system reviews and motherboard comparisons. In that last category we looked at MSI`s Z77-G45 Gaming board and it scored well against a slightly cheaper offering from another manufacturer. Having seen that MSI felt they could compete really well with their G43 board so today we have that very product on our test bench to see how it compares."

48 desktop and 66 mobile processors
     Wed, Jul 17 2013 | 6:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For this article we used only a single benchmark, but we can still draw some general conclusions. It's clear that the laptop and desktop processors of the same name aren't very close in terms of performance. For example, some mobile Core i5s were slower than desktop Core i3s.

Thermaltake Urban S71
     Wed, Jul 17 2013 | 6:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At similar pricing to the more basic Cooler Master HAF units, the Urban S71 unit weighs in quite nicely with some additional features. When comparing with the high-end HAF X for around $200 US, it seems you are trading an extra $60 US for one extra hot-swap bay and different styling. The Fractal XL R2 full tower is a silent case design with very similar features to the S71, the main drawbacks being the lack of hot-swap bays, an additional 6kg and the design pushing minimalistic approach a little too far.
