Mini-ITX Gaming HTPC: building the ultimate powerhouse - XSReviews
     Mon, Oct 08 2012 | 11:06A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
What`s good about a gaming rig is that it usually functions as a HTPC pretty much perfectly. The downside is the size, heat production and possibly noise issues of a gaming rig in comparison to an HTPC; so I set out on a journey to bring the best of both worlds together! Today we`re going to take a look at a great mini-ITX HTPC-gaming build. It took quite a while to find the right components, activate sponsors and get all the parts shipped and put together, but the end result is one of the finest mini PC`s you`ve ever seen! A link to the article would be much appreciated."

Sapphire HD 7970 6GB Vapor-X GHZ Edition Review
     Mon, Oct 08 2012 | 9:48A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Vapor-X cooling solution does allow for increased overclocking margins to a point where the core is only going to give up what it can. Voltage tuning helps, but you reach a point where voltage no longer helps drive a core clock speed increase. This particular HD 7970 6GB Vapor-X GHz Edition sample was able to reach in excess of 1200MHz on the core and 1700MHz+ in some tests but would fail at others. The final clock speeds of 1175MHz on the core and 1661MHz are the levels that would pass all of the test suite along with a series of gaming sessions without failing. The core speed increases of just over 17% on the core and just over 11% on the 6GB of GDDR5 memory are enough to drive measurable performance increases."

Ghost is designed for silence. The silent case category has proven to be a very popular undertaking, BitFenix not being a brand to sit back have brought to market their rendition of how a silent case should be. Ghost has been given silencing material and a stealthy look that promises to bode well for those demanding silence as the order of the day - water-cooling support, USB 3.0, hot swappable HDD and clearance for high-end hardware are just some of the features our case in question has to offer and we will be leaving no stone unturned today."

With all of nVidia`s launches it`s been a while since we have last seen a new Radeon HD 7970 graphics card. The Radeon HD 7970 Matrix Platinum from ASUS come just right to mess up the green team.

Biostar Hi-Fi Z77X Intel ATX Motherboard @ Benchmark Reviews
     Sat, Oct 06 2012 | 9:05A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The latest chipset from Intel, the Z77, has been around for a little while now and has certainly spurred a lot of interest by aftermarket motherboard manufacturers. Little actually changed between the Z68 chipset and the Z77 chipset. Z77 added Smart connect to let you receive emails while your computer is asleep and Rapid Start to speed up boot times. With so little changing, it is up to the manufacturers to pack their motherboards so full of features that they stand out above the rest of the competition. That is exactly what Biostar has done with the Hi-Fi Z77X."

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
