     Mon, Sep 09 2013 | 3:41P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Cooler Master V850 sets some very high standards for itself in its spec and feature sheet alone. The Cooler Master V850 boasts an 840 watt single 12V rail, 80 PLUS Gold certification and all modular cables featuring six 6+2 PCIe connectors right off the bat.

Logitech G602 Wireless Gaming Mouse
     Mon, Sep 09 2013 | 1:10P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although Ive used and tested over 60 different mice models from most manufacturers around so far i can`t say that there have been many wireless ones that i would ever consider playing games with. As a matter of fact aside the very good R.A.T.9 by Mad Catz and the Ouroboros by Razer (which shares quite a few characteristics with the R.A.T.9) i don`t think there`s a chance Id ever use another wireless gaming mouse with one of my desktop systems since yes i do like to play games whenever i find the time. Logitech has also launched a few wireless gaming mice in the market with very good performance levels but so far none felt exactly at home when playing fast passed FPS and MMOs something which is naturally considered as an issue especially for gamers. Well it seems that Logitech is not giving up on gamers and so just recently they announced their latest G602 Wireless Gaming mouse which has been on our test bench for just over a week now."

External Storage Roundup: LaCie, Toshiba, and WD
     Mon, Sep 09 2013 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
You have to appreciate a good external hard drive that faithfully ferries important data from one place to another, while safely stashed on a drive that's wrapped inside a slick-looking, durable chassis. These days, the storage capacity on a typical and relatively inexpensive external hard drive is large; 1TB is a standard size, and it isn't at all uncommon to see 2TB drives, too. We looked at a few external hard drives from Toshiba, WD, and LaCie, all with similar specs to see how they stacked up against one another. All three of the units in our test bank employ a speedy USB 3.0 interface with capacities that range from 750GB to 1TB in size and, as it happens, all three are compact and highly portable...

MSI GTX 780 N780 Lightning Video Card Review @ HiTech Legion
     Mon, Sep 09 2013 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The MSI GTX 780 Lightning graphics card is the newest offering, targeted at achieving the highest overclocks possible. The MSI GTX 780 Lightning offers a graphics card with the GK110 GPU at its core, with MSI`s TriFrozr Thermal design. The TriFrozr design offers a cooling solution with three PWM fans that can be independently controlled. The architecture also includes an all-digital PWM control and triple level signals to show load using different colors. The overclocking features don`t stop there. Two separate BIOS chips are present on the 10 layer PCB. One is tuned for gaming performance out of the box, while the other is specifically tuned and unlocked for LN2 overclocking. In addition the card has 16 GPU phases of power and three memory phases, and the ability to add a GPU Reactor behind the GPU for more overclocking stability. The GPU reactor is designed to offer up to 300% more power capacity and to stabilize power noise. The Lightning card doesn`t skimp on quality either utilizing MSI`s Military class 4 components, consisting of DrMOS 4, CopperMOS, Hi-c CAP, Super Ferrite Core, and Dark Solid Caps./"

Vizio CT15T-B0 Review @ TechReviewSource.com

Posted by: STAFF
Vizio, while typically known for their HDTVs, has continued their reach into the laptop market with the new CT15T-B0. It has an extremely thin design, good battery life and an absolutely beautiful 1080p HD display. But it is quite expensive, has a limited solid-state drive and limited ports."

     Sun, Sep 08 2013 | 6:46P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This keyboard is very solidly built without being overly heavy. It feels durable enough to withstand several years of heavy use. If you come to the conclusion that you are in the market for a mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX Brown switches, the Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Stealth 2013 edition is one to consider. By extension the Razer BlackWidow 2013 edition with its Cherry MX Blue switches is well worth a good long look if thats the switch type you decide on."

Cooler Master CM 690 III Review @ Ocaholic
     Sun, Sep 08 2013 | 3:41P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cooler Master has officially unveiled their new CM 690 III, the successor to one of the most popular midtower cases. Compared to the previous version, there are quite a few changes, especially, when taking a closer look at the HDD/SSD compartment. Other than that there is space for a dual radiator in the top as well as in the front of the case. In the end, all of this should even come at a decent price point. Overall this sound interesting, doesn`t it?"

Palit GeForce GTX 780 Super JetStream Graphics Card Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Sun, Sep 08 2013 | 10:08A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When deciding on a high end GPU there are two obvious options in the market at the moment, the GTX 770 and Radeon 7970 GHz Edition. Both offer a level of performance which will suit a decent budget but there is always that bit of doubt around what that bit of extra cash might get us. Today we look to answer that as we take an overclocked GTX 770 and 7970 GHz for a spin and compare them to an overclocked GTX 780 Super JetStream from Palit. Does that step up give us enough reason to stretch the budget and what will the GTX 780 give us in some of the latest games like Crysis 3, Grid 2 and Bioshock Infinite?"

Patriot Viper 3 Black Mamba 2x4GB DDR3-1866 CL9 1.5V Review @ Ocaholic
     Sun, Sep 08 2013 | 10:08A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Even though Patriot are absent in the high-end part of the memory market, they are definitely no strangers to our test lab. Since the last summer, we have met four times and not once did their products fail to deliver. To see if this tradition can stand against another challenge, today we are going to proceed with our coverage of the recent Viper 3 lineup."

PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
