CM Storm Recon Gaming Mouse Review - BCCHardware
     Fri, Nov 23 2012 | 2:15A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Recon Optical mouse with its new Avago Sensor was a pleasure to use. I had no problems with it being jerky or skipping around regardless of what surface I was using it on. It is constructed well from high quality components and the Teflon feet did not show any noticeable sign of wear after a months use. The Teflon feet did a great job of being smooth on any surface I tried it on. . ."

Let`s have a closer look at what they came up with!"

Asus P8Z77-V DELUXE Review
     Thu, Nov 22 2012 | 4:07P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OK let`s start with the obvious here. Performance wise the delta`s between all of the boards in this comparison are going to be pretty slim for the most part. Intel`s socket 1155 Second and Third Generation Core series processors with their integrated memory controller and core overclocking consistency have made it so that just about any board will give you a decent overclock and deliver comparable performance when you pop the same parts into it. To look at this even closer to home ASUS builds its boards to deliver the same overclocking experience in its Z77-based product stack from the lower end all the way up to the ROG Maximus V Extreme. Where the differences occur is in the feature set each board is equipped with so that just about every price point from the bottom to the top is covered. Kind of a modular approach when you look at it."

Plextor M5 Pro and M5S vs. Plextor M3 Pro and M3 Review
     Thu, Nov 22 2012 | 4:02P | Optical Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Plextor has recently refreshed their SSD lineup by replacing the good old M3 Pro and M3 models with the new promising Plextor M5 Pro and M5S. We decided to compare all four products against one another and also against the new products from the competitors available in the today’s market. http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/storage/display/plextor-m5-pro-m5s.html

ADATA XPG Xtreme Series 2x8GB DDR3-2133MHz CL10
     Thu, Nov 22 2012 | 4:01P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It's been quite some time since out last memory review. Today we are having a look at one 16 GB dual channel kit from ADATA. This kit belongs to their XPG Xtreme Series and offers large capacity without cutting performance. Running at DDR3-2133 MHz, it isn't the fastest high capacity kit around. But ADATA is known for their quality better than oustanding high speed that you can't reach, so let's see what they came up with!

frames per second is not sufficient
     Thu, Nov 22 2012 | 4:00P | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I spent literally hundreds of hours testing this, and I think the results are the first conclusive performance comparisons between Windows 8 and Windows 7, especially in gaming. I wanted to make sure that I didn't run any tests that were hardware limited.

For gaming performance, frames per second is not sufficient to portray actual gaming performance. This article looks at frame delivery times, in milliseconds, and shows pretty significant results depending on system configuration. For office applications, trace based benchmarks were used to show overall responsiveness using real workloads and real data."

Corsair AX860i Power Supply review
     Thu, Nov 22 2012 | 12:03P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For this article we review the Corsair AX860i PSU. The 860 Watt Power Supply is grand in performance, the one massive 72A 12-volts says it all really. Excellent for multi-GPU solutions and hardcore overclockers. Similar to the premium model Corsair also embeds their LINK technology into the PSU. That means you can monitor the PSU with the help of software, things like PSU efficiency, power usage or simply to adjust the fan RPM. We'll show you that in the review though.

Crucial shows off new Ballistix Sports VLP modules
     Thu, Nov 22 2012 | 12:02P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
According to Crucial, these modules have the lowest profile currently available in the market. Hardware.Info UK was able to sneak a peek through the picture displayed. As you can see the modules are rated as DDR3-1600, using 9-9-9-24 timings and 1.35 volts.

     Thu, Nov 22 2012 | 12:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After many hours of benchmarking, we can finally and convincingly settle the debate about whether gaming in Windows 8 is better or worse than in Windows 7. And the answer is: it's the same!

Mini-ITX motherboards review - Part 2: AMD Socket FM1
     Thu, Nov 22 2012 | 12:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS P8Z77I-Deluxe is perhaps the most comprehensive mini-ITX board that we've seen. Features include PCI-Express x16, 2x DDR3, 2x SATA600, 2x SATA300, 2x eSATA, Intel-based Gigabit LAN and a Realtek ALC898 audio codec. The mini-PCIe slot is filled with a combined 802.11n WLAN and Bluetooth adapter. What's different about this board is that ASUS put the CPU power supply on a separate PCB, which made room for eight phases and improves overclockability and energy-efficiency.

Olympus SP-620UZ Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Thu, Nov 22 2012 | 11:23A | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Olympus SP-620UZ is an affordable, compact (but not pocket size) superzoom camera with a 21x zoom lens. It`s affordably priced, but not as refined as its pricier competition. It offers strong performance to go with that 21x zoom lens but the LCD is low-res and video recording is limited to 720p."

Kingwin Power Force 850W Power Supply Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Thu, Nov 22 2012 | 11:16A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Kingwin has some really great power supplies in their Lazer Gold and Lazer Platinum series, but at the end of the day not everyone wants to dish out the cash for an 80PLUS Platinum certified power supply. Dont worry though Kingwin has the mainstream covered as well. Today we are going to be taking a look at the Kingwin Power Force PF-850 850W power supply which features an 80PLUS Bronze certification, modular cables and a 5 year warranty. Read on as we take a look! Happy Thanksgiving!"

AMDs New Catalyst Linux Driver Isnt Too Good
     Thu, Nov 22 2012 | 9:57A | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last week marked the release of a new AMD Catalyst Linux driver beta that was intended to improve the AMD Radeon OpenGL performance. AMD said this updated closed-source Linux graphics driver would bring significant performance improvements for Valve`s recently ported Left 4 Dead 2 Linux game. Curious about AMD Linux OpenGL performance improvements elsewhere, I ran some benchmarks of this new driver on several different graphics cards. Unfortunately, the performance improvements aren`t too widespread and there`s other problems making this beta driver not appealing."

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.

Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 Intel X79 LGA2011 Motherboard In-Depth Review
Jul 27 | Motherboards
Rating:
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.
