SanDisk Clip Sport MP3 Player Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, Apr 27 2014 | 4:50P | MP3 Players | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the first part of February SanDisk announced the new SanDisk Clip Sport MP3 player that was aimed at athletes and fitness enthusiasts, and they were nice and sent us one. Now you are thinking ?Why do I need a dedicated MP3 player? I have a smart phone?. Well running or working out with a large phone like my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 sucks. It?s a massive phone, and it bouncing around in my pocket while running is not only hard on my leg, but the phone too.The SanDisk Clip Sport is small, light, and with 4GB or 8GB internal storage more than enough for a couple hours in the gym."

GIGABYTE GTX 750 Ti OC Review @ Vortez
     Sun, Apr 27 2014 | 4:24P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With an impressive factory overclock, we see that GIGABYTE have indeed increased the clockspeed from 1020MHz to a very healthy 1215MHz. The standard OC version rates at a mild 1033MHz so the overclock applied to this model is insane in comparison! The memory clockspeed remains the same however at 1350MHz so we expect further overclocks to be attained from at least the memory but also hopefully the core too. With the additional cooling provided by the now renowned Windforce design and a little extra power available, we expect this card to be quite a pocket rocket."

AMD Mantle Patch for THIEF on Intel 3570K CPU @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, Apr 27 2014 | 11:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

EVGA SuperNOVA 750G2 and 850G2 Gold Power Supply Review
     Sun, Apr 27 2014 | 2:03A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Both the SuperNOVA 850 G2 and 750 G2 power supplies exhibited outstanding voltage regulation with low AC ripple, even at full load. The power supplies feature all modular cables and deliver very good efficiency, easily meeting the 80Plus Gold criteria. The 850 G2 and 750 G2 PSUs incorporate EVGAs ECO Intelligent Thermal Control System, which allows the power supplies to operate in silent, fan-less mode at low to mid power levels. And last but not least, the two new G2 power supplies are backed by a 10-year warranty (with registration) and are very aggressively priced. Our only minor disappointment was the 850 G2 and 750 G2 power supplies do not support EVGAs SuperNOVA hardware monitoring and control software."

Gigabyte BRIX Pro Mini-PC Review @ Madshrimps
     Sat, Apr 26 2014 | 3:11A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Does size really matter? On some human levels it might though a different trend has been observed in the PC market over the last year. Compact is the key word featuring mITX sized motherboards and idem ditto enclosures. These compact PCs are playing a more and more important role in every manufacturers` lineup: Mini PCs NUCs they are all amongst us now.
