Cooler Master Storm Stryker Gaming Case @ Pro-Clockers
     Sun, Aug 19 2012 | 3:39P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, we will be taking a look at another white case this week. This time it is from Cooler Master and is called the Stryker. If you look past the white color, this case may look familiar to you. If it does the case that should come to mind is the Trooper. Reproducing your best-selling cases in white is a good idea as we have seen white becoming what black was to beige. A trend that quickly spread through the masses. Tony Walker Owner/Operator of Pro-Clockers www.Pro-Clockers.com TDub@pro-clockers.com MSN =

NETGEAR ReadyNAS NV+ v2 Network Storage @ Benchmark Reviews
     Sun, Aug 19 2012 | 11:01A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The NETGEAR ReadyNAS NV+ v2 is aimed right at the typical small business owner or advanced home user, by virtue of its size and form factor. It benefits from a recent tech refresh of its hardware and software, becoming the v2 model in the process. With four bays you can have both capacity and redundancy with RAID 5 on a three or four disk array. RAID expansion and migration are easy, with X-RAID2 software that manages all the hard work of expanding and migrating from a single disk to RAID 1, and then to RAID 5. The NV+ v2 uses a Marvell 6282 CPU, running at 1.6GHz and 256MB of DDR3 system memory. A single GbE network port is standard, as are two USB 3.0 ports on the back panel. Benchmark Reviews has tested several NAS products lately, ranging from simple two bay units, up to an 8-Bay NAS for the storage needs of large businesses. Let`s see how this 4-bay device compares to its competitors."

Lepa G650 650W Power Supply @ Pro-Clockers
     Sun, Aug 19 2012 | 10:05A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, we get the opportunity to look at another power supply from Lepa. The G650 is a value way of being able to own a Gold certified power supply without breaking the bank. At 650 watts, the G650 is just one of three units in this mid-range class. The two other models are 750W and 850W. Because the G650 goes for about $109 doesn`t means the quality is cheap. Lets take a look at the G650 now. Tony Walker Owner/Operator of Pro-Clockers www.Pro-Clockers.com TDub@pro-clockers.com MSN = tawalk"

[Tech ARP] Western Digital VelociRaptors Vs. Solid State Drives
     Sat, Aug 18 2012 | 4:09P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We recently reviewed both the latest *Western Digital VelociRaptor * and the *Intel 520 Series Solid State Drive *, and it got us thinking about a direct comparison. Both drives may be fundamentally different in the way they work but they actually target the same market - the hardware performance enthusiast! With graphics cards and processors so powerful these days and DDR3 SDRAM so cheap, the only thing holding back a system is often the storage subsystem. Hence, there is an increase emphasis on the performance of the hard disk drive, or its rival, the solid state drive. Many have said that the days of the hard disk drive is waning, and the age of the solid state drive has begun. But is the hard disk drive really on the way out? That is what this small comparison is about."

ASUS T-Topology Explained - Higher Memory Overclocking @ ocaholic
     Sat, Aug 18 2012 | 3:39P | Overclocking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Crosshair V Formula-Z and the Sabertooth 990FX R2.0, ASUS is going to release two new premium AMD motherboards, one for the TUF and the other for the ROG series. You can expect some changes and also some new features for AMDs latest FX Bulldozer CPUs as well as AMDs upcoming Piledriver processors.

Sharkfin Self-Molding Earbuds Review - XSReviews
     Sat, Aug 18 2012 | 10:38A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Like it or not, the headphone brands from big-name artists like Dr Dre, 50 Cent and Ludacris, have opened up a new market for quality sound in headphones and earbuds. However while style and substance are there in varying quantities and they`re great for everyday use or while in a relaxed state, often the bulky designs aren`t perfect for working out with. Even the best earbuds will occasionally fall out, or they`ll get sweaty and slide around; what`s the solution? Apparently it`s this sort of thing: Sharkfin Self-molding Ear Buds. They fit around the earphones and mold to the shape of your ear, holding them in place while resisting sweat and movement. Let`s put these claims to the test. A link to the article would be much appreciated."

[Tech ARP] BIOS Option Of The Week - NVIDIA GPU Ex
     Sat, Aug 18 2012 | 10:08A | BIOS | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meager beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition. Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend. This week, we will be taking a look at the *NVIDIA GPU Ex *setting."

Posted by: STAFF
The HP Envy 4-1030us is a new Ultrabook that caught our eye because of its sleek design, Beats Audio and strong set of internal components. While we were impressed with most of what this new comer had to offer, we were disappointed at a strange design flaw and a poor display."
