Test: What about your Intel Core 2 Quad? - Gaming Performance HD 7970 @ ocaholic
     Wed, Aug 15 2012 | 3:50A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Here we go, a lot of people asked me to test an Intel Core 2 Quad under recent 3D games with an HD 7970 so here is what I did. Like for the Core2Duo test we published last week, I chose the most popular processor which in this case is the Intel C2Q Q6600. However this time we did not simply test it at stock frequency, we overclocked it to 3.0 GHz. Why 3.0 GHz only one would ask, well that way I was able to use exactly the same BIOS settings I did use for the C2D E8400. Just kidding, the main reason is that to run this processor fully stable at 3.0 GHz you don`t need any voltage increase and you can use a default bus speed which is 333 MHz FSB in this case. Enough talking, let`s see how the Core2Quad Q6600 clocked at 3 GHz will perform against today`s processors like the i7 3770K and FX-8150 under heavy 3D workloads conditions such as Benchmarks and recent Games with highest graphics settings possible at a resolution of 1920x1080. Let`s get it started!"

Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H Warhorse to Workhorse! @ Techreaction.net
     Tue, Aug 14 2012 | 8:25P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Gigabyte UD5 moves well past the level of standard low end boards and is solidly embedded in the mid ranges area. Though it is the same price as the recently reviewed G1.Sniper M3 its functionality is very different and that is where we are going to go with this review; functionality. We are going to look at getting the job done as that is more important to most users than overclocking, getting gold medals at HWBot or setting records. We want this board to sweat! We will be moving beyond the CPU, GPU and memory tests alone. We will not consider the transfer rate of one drive or the performance of one raid. We will focus on no single item here. We will try to focus on all things at one time to find out if Gigabyte can deliver up some motherboard multitasking? But how does the motherboard have anything to do with multitasking? We will get there; but first the basics."

Galaxy GeForce GTX 670 GC 4GB Graphics Card Review
     Tue, Aug 14 2012 | 5:43P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Galaxy has really put together a great graphics card with a custom cooler with understated looks and touches like the blue illuminated GTX 600 logo and the kepler script on the bottom in addition to providing better cooling capability and low noise. The overclocked speeds and 4GB of GDDR5 memory running at 6.0 GHz give the Galaxy GTX 670 GC 4GB a lot of bragging rights for gamers while also offering performance advantages for ultra-high resolution gaming at a cost lower than the cheapest GTX 680s."

Vizio Thin+Light CT14 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Tue, Aug 14 2012 | 4:09P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As Vizio`s first venture into the laptop market, the 14-inch Thin+Light CT14 is a decent first try as it has a very portable, attractive design but it still feels like a first-gen product. It lacks some basic features, like a backlit keyboard and a media card slot in addition to disappointing battery life."

The Best Sub-$100 Intel Z77 Motherboard?
     Tue, Aug 14 2012 | 4:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"We are going to be looking at three Intel Z77 motherboards that can all be purchased for under $100 before shipping. The three boards today will include the ASRock Z77 Pro3, BIOSTAR TZ77B, and the GIGABYTE Z77-DS3H. All three of the motherboards are considered full ATX though their dimensions are slightly under the full ATX measurement of 305mm x 244mm (12in x 9.6in). By keeping the PCB smaller, the companies are able to save some money on the production costs of each of the boards and pass the savings along to the end user. They may be losing some precious real estate on the motherboard, but they aren't trying to pack as many 'extras' on to the board..."

MSI N680GTX Lightning review: best GTX 680 overclocking card
     Tue, Aug 14 2012 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI did it again. With the N680GTX Lightning they have created the best GeForce GTX 680 graphics card for overclockers, but more than ever it's best suited for seasoned overclockers. Thanks to Nvidia's strange decision, the standard BIOS limits this card to performance you can achieve with standard and cheaper GTX 680s. Only when you download the older BIOS from the internet are you free to explore the overclocking potential of the MSI Lightning.

How do you organize the cables and networking equipment from your computer? @ Hardware Secrets
     Tue, Aug 14 2012 | 1:09P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I was really annoyed with the amount of cables and networking equipment lyingon the floor: a modem for the computer, another modem for the telephone, a router, a Gigabit Ethernet switch, and their power supplies. Finally, I decided to organize things around here. See the end result in the picture below. I installed everything on the inner panel of my desk. At least now I can vacuum the floor. How about you? Do you leave everything on the floor collecting dust, or do you organize it in any way?"

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.
