SteelSeries Siberia V3 @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Nov 19 2014 | 6:28A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The tech geek in me loved hearing about the new SteelSeries Siberia V3 while the developing grumpy old man in me was a little concerned. I have learned over the years that sometimes a launch like this can be an amazing thing and other times companies change things just to change things and they end up messing up something that was great in the first place. You see, the original Siberia was good, but had many flaws. When SteelSeries introduced the Siberia V2 I was seriously amazed. They really stepped things up. Heck, Ive been using the V2 in both the office and also with my LAN rigs for a few years now. Now with the introduction of the Siberia V3, will this model be a requirement in the office as well? Lets take a look to see what has changed to determine that!"

Cougar 700M Gaming Mouse and Speed Large Mouse Pad @ Bigbruin.com
     Tue, Nov 18 2014 | 7:20P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For this review, Cougar has sent over a new mouse, the rather futuristic looking 700M gaming mouse. The 700M does not have the look of a traditional mouse, and it looks as if it is poised to transform at any moment to join Optimus Prime in battle. We will find that while this design may look like it is from another galaxy, it offers features that make it very appealing for every day use (here on Earth)."

Tesoro Lobera Full Color @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Nov 18 2014 | 1:07P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For the past few years the only thing that membrane keyboards still had over mechanical keyboards has been the ability to run full RGB backlighting. Well this is no longer a problem, nearly everyone has their own RGB mechanical keyboards in the works or coming out now. A great example of this is the new Tesoro Lobera Full Color. Tesoro has had a few variations on their Lobera but up until now they all just had a single backlight color. Today Im going to see if going full RGB is worth it. Additionally this will be the first time I have had the chance to check out a Tesoro keyboard, we can see how they compare to the competition."

CS:GO & TF2 Extensively Tested On The Newest Open-Source Radeon Linux Driver
     Tue, Nov 18 2014 | 10:07A | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The latest massive set of Linux test data we have to share with Linux gamers and enthusiasts is a look at Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Team Fortress 2 when using the very newest open-source Radeon graphics driver code. The very latest open-source Radeon driver code tested with these popular Valve Linux games were the Linux 3.18 Git kernel, Mesa 10.4-devel, LLVM 3.6 SVN, and xf86-video-ati 7.5.99. With this bleeding edge code there were sixteen AMD Radeon graphics cards tested from low to high-end and spanning several generations. Beyond looking at the frame-rate results, there`s also power consumption, performance-per-Watt, GPU core temperature, and CPU usage to go along with all of these results. Enjoy!"

be quiet! Straight Power 10 CM 800W Semi-Modular Power Supply Review
     Tue, Nov 18 2014 | 9:02A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today be quiet! are expanding their Straight Power series of power supplies with a new range of models. The Straight Power series already has 400W to 700W models under the Straight Power E9 label but now they are adding 400-800W models to the mix under a new Straight Power 10 series. We are looking more specifically at their Straight Power 10 800W CM power supply which, like many existing products in the Straight Power series, features modular cables, a Silent Wings PWM fan and 80 Plus Gold certification. Given the wattage of this model, it also has multi-GPU support making it ideal for Crossfire or SLI based systems. With this new launch be quiet! are continuing their tradition of using FSP as the main OEM as they’ve had a long and successful partnership with FSP who make great power supply internals and be quiet know how to finish the product off with high quality fans, useful features and sharp presentation.

be quiet! SFX Power 2 300W Power Supply Review
     Tue, Nov 18 2014 | 9:00A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When a compact ATX power supply just isn’t compact enough you have to think outside the box, or use a new form factor. The SFX and TFX form factors are two of the most common small form factor power supplies aside from the standard ATX that is so common in desktops. The SFX form factor measures in at 100×125×63.5 mm compared to TFX at 146×83×64mm. SFX is short and stubby while TFX is long and thin. In that sense TFX is more server orientated when server racks tend to be long and thin. Conversely SFX is more orientated towards compact computer systems that are not so obscurely shaped. Very few power supply vendors produce SFX or TFX units for the consumer market due to the fact demand is so low. However, be quiet! being the smart company they are have seen the trend towards SFX and TFX power supplies in recent years as small form factor builds have become more fashionable.

Corsair Graphite 780T Review
     Mon, Nov 17 2014 | 7:20P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
To follow up, the Graphite 780T has many positive things making it well worth the asking price. I don`t have time to write out each in detail or this would go on forever, so I`m just going to cover the things that make it stand out. First up, having support for every aftermarket CPU cooler is a major advantage. When I say every single one, it`s because nothing has topped 200mm yet and that would just be purely insane. I have time and time again given advice for purchasing a cooler, only to find out that a height limit is an issue. At 200mm and a good amount of surrounding space, there isn`t much that will not fit. Going along with the CPU cooler, having space up to 355mm without removing a hard drive cage is insane! I also expect Quad CrossFireX or SLI to not be a problem at all, with a generous amount of airflow provided by two 140mm fans in front. To continue, a dedicated fan controller and long internal cables are almost a must within the high end chassis, as it can really make or break a setup. Given that generally companies don`t include all the potential fans, having extra connectors besides the motherboard is a great addition. The frame itself is well built and solid metal; this is great because all too often cheap metal means it will easily bend and dent from moving it around. I did not have this issue; in fact my back hurt a little after a few lifts because I wasn`t prepared for the weight."

ASUS Strix GeForce GTX 970 OC Review @ Vortez

Take a Maxwell Core, overclock it and then add arguably the best air cooling solution available and what do you get? The ASUS Strix GTX 970 OC. This card appears to have it all, the latest technology from NVIDIA, supreme cooling in the form of the ASUS Direct CU II and a subtle, yet significant factory overclock."

netTALK DUO WiFi VOIP Phone Review @ ModSynergy.com
     Mon, Nov 17 2014 | 3:18P | Imaging | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The savings to be had is incredible! Remember that I pay right now to the telecom company a little over $36 per month for a basic landline service with no extra features, this amounts to about $432 per year. Doing the math for the netTALK DUO WiFi, the first year would cost about $84.69, a savings of $347.31! That`s almost $400 I`m putting back into my own pockets! The savings are undeniable, but they won`t mean much if the netTALK DUO WiFi has issues and can`t perform reliably. Without further ado, lets jump into this review shall we?"
