MSI Gaming R9 280X OC Edition Review
     Wed, Feb 05 2014 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the past few days we've published no less than three MSI Gaming Series graphics card reviews. Today we're having a closer look at MSI's R9 280X Gaming OC Edition graphics card and what it has to offer in details. A quick look reveals, there is a Twin Frozr IV cooler mounted on a reference PCB, which sounds like a combination that offers a very solid price/performance ratio.

SilverStone Raven RV04 Case Review
     Wed, Feb 05 2014 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today Benchmark Reviews will be looking at the lastest Raven enclosure from SilverStone, the Raven SST-RV04B-W. Since the RV01, the Raven series served as the ?experimental? arm of the SilverStone chassis lineup; testing out unique ideas like a 90-degree rotated motherboard orientation and exotic applications of materials in a line of enclosures that had the extreme looks (and performance) to match. The RV04 forgoes the vertical orientation of the motherboard in previous Ravens and instead rotates it yet another 90 degrees. Utilizing a cooling design inspired by the impressive micro-ATX TJ-08E, the ATX Raven RV04 uses two 180mm AP fans in a slightly more traditional format ? well, as traditional as a Raven case can be?"

T440s, Lenovo notebook
     Wed, Feb 05 2014 | 9:00A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Quote: "With the T440s, Lenovo has sent a clear message that this machine is about portability first, power second. Its low-voltage chipset, limited RAM expandability, and hyper-conservative thermal management (which provokes throttling under even moderate GPU load) precludes any possibility of the machine being leveraged for GPU-related work in any way. That’s not to take anything away from its speed; with high scores in PCMark 7 and subjectively snappy performance, the T440s is a winner in general usage."

MSI Invades Mini ITX Gaming @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Feb 05 2014 | 6:26A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As someone who tries to make it out to as many LAN events as possible, small but powerful LAN rigs have been saving my back for years. Even though to some the LAN scene has been shrinking, the industry has really started to take notice of the small LAN rigs recently. We have seen smaller console like builds from boutique builders and Valves recent interest in steam boxes has gotten everyone in a frenzy as well. Because of that, I was happy to see MSI dive into the Mini ITX gaming market with their new GTX 760 Gaming ITX video card and the ZZ87I Gaming AC motherboard. Given our previous experience with similar products, MSI sent over the motherboard and video card combo to see what we thought about the two. Lets see what they are all about."

Gigabyte Z87X-UD4H @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Feb 05 2014 | 3:59A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It seems nearly every motherboard manufacture took the change to change things up slightly when it came time for the Haswell launch. I didn`t have a chance to check out a board from Gigabyte at the launch but I did get one in recently, specifically their Z87X-UD4H. It`s not their highest end board, nor is it entry level. It should give us a good idea of what to expect from Gigabyte on the Z87 platform without breaking the bank. With its red styling, you can`t say it`s not a little eye catching, that`s for sure!"

AMD A10-7850K vs. Intel/AMD CPU/APU Comparison
     Tue, Feb 04 2014 | 4:17P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Two days ago AMD launched their Kaveri APUs to mixed reactions. On launch-day we provided a Linux overview of the AMD A10-7850K APU and followed that with an Ubuntu Linux vs. Windows 8.1 performance comparison for this top-end Kaveri APU. Yesterday was then the AMD Kaveri APU compared to discrete AMD/NVIDIA GPUs and now today we`ve finally had the time to finish the tests most people have been looking forward to: the A10-7850K comparison against various other AMD and Intel CPU/APUs. These Linux tests cover a range of both processor and graphics testing from Ubuntu 14.04 across a wide selection of Intel and AMD hardware."

ASUS Maximus VI Formula Motherboard Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Tue, Feb 04 2014 | 11:10A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When ASUS launched their Republic of Gamers Z87 motherboards there was one that was missing, the Maximus VI Formula. They had already launched the Maximus VI Extreme, Hero, GeneZ and Impact boards. After a little while ASUS went ahead and finally launched the Maximus VI Formula motherboard. So why is this motherboard so special? Two things that really stand out about it is that it features the same Thermal Armor that ASUS has used on its TUF series of motherboards and it is the first ASUS motherboard to use the CrossChill hybrid air and water-cooling technology to keep the VRMs nice and cool. Beyond that this is a Republic of Gamers board so you have Extreme Engine Digi+ III, SupremeFX Formula audio, Sonic Radar and a mPCIe Combo II with 802.11ac/Bluetooth 4.0. Does this board have it all? Read on as we find out!"

Devolo dLAN 500 AV Wireless+ Starter Kit
     Tue, Feb 04 2014 | 10:07A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although the majority of people out there seem to choose Wi-Fi as the primary way to share their internet connection there are some people who prefer wired connections for a number of rather obvious reasons (speed, security being the two most important ones). Powerline adapters were introduced in the market several years ago to help those who prefer wired connections save both time and effort by transferring the signal via the structures electrical wiring. The only downside with this technology is that in very old houses or in houses that have three-phase electrical wirings speed may get very low and in some rare cases they may not work at all. That being said most people i know always wanted powerline adapters to have one significant feature which is to broadcast the signal from the secondary adapter using Wi-Fi (quite useful for smartphones and tablets) and even though it took some time for manufacturers to do so there are such solutions available in the market as we speak. Today we will be taking a look at one such solution and more specifically the dLAN 500 AV Wireless+ Starter Kit by Devolo. "

Posted by: STAFF
Today we review the Aerocool GT-S Full tower case, which exists in two flavors. The model we received from the eTONIX crew is the white and blue model, however there is also a black and red themed version available. Taiwanese Aerocool Advanced Technology (AAT) was founded way back in 2001 and has settled as one of the leading names in the Do It Yourself Market. The GT-S case was designed for these DIY enthusiasts and also targeting heavy duty gamers, allowing maximum hardware compatibility, ease of installation and great out of the box cooling. Without further ado lets put Aerocool`s latest sibling to the test."
