Linux Is A Lemon On The Retina MacBook Pro
     Thu, Aug 16 2012 | 12:59P | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are planning to buy one of the new Apple MacBook Pro notebooks with a Retina Display for use under Linux, hold off on your purchase. Running the Retina MacBook Pro with Linux isn`t a trouble-free experience and after using even the latest development code and jumping through various hoops, Linux on the latest Apple hardware is still less than an ideal experience. Linux support will improve for the Retina MacBook Pro in the coming months, but it`s not likely to see any proper out of the box experience until next year."

Phiaton PS 20 Bluetooth Stereo Earphones Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Aug 16 2012 | 10:08A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are looking to cut the cord between your smartphone or laptop then you should certainly give a pair of Bluetooth wireless earbuds a chance. We were shocked how well the Phiaton PS 20 BT earbuds sounded, but then again these were designed from the ground up for music. The bass quality stands out as being exceptional, but you can thank the large 14.3mm drivers for that..."

Super Flower GOLDEN KING 1000W Power Supply Unit Review
     Thu, Aug 16 2012 | 10:08A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Up until a couple of months ago owning an 80 Plus Platinum power supply was not the easiest for many people thing mainly due to their high price tags but now things have begun to settle and so there are quite a few wallet-friendly 80 Plus Platinum certified power supplies out there for every enthusiast/gamer ranging from 500W and up to 1000W. Super Flower may not be the worlds most well-known brand but theyve been an OEM manufacturer for many of the leading companies in the field (NZXT and Kingwin are just two of those) for quite some time and now they are pointing the right way (in terms of pricing) with their latest Golden King 1000W 80 Plus Platinum certified PSU."

What Is The Best Sub-$100 Intel Z77 Motherboard? Find Out In Our Roundup! @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Aug 16 2012 | 10:08A | 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..."

XFX Radeon HD 7870 2GB GDDR5 Video Card Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Aug 16 2012 | 10:08A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overclocking the XFX Radeon HD 7870 was enjoyable to say the least. We were able to get an impressive 24% overclock out of our sample card with just a small amount of voltage tweaking. For those of you who don`t want to deal with voltage control, we were able to get a 13% overclock on stock volts. In game there was a noticeable difference in performance, which scaled well with our overclocked settings..."

Review: ASUS Maximus V Formula @ ocaholic

Posted by: STAFF
Next to the Maximus V Extreme ASUS has a second ROG motherboard in their recent Z77 line-up ROG (Republic of Gamers) line-up. What we`re talking about is the Maximus V Formula which comes with a few less features but therefore also a lower price tag. We`re really curious to see wether this board can keep up with the Extreme monster of if it has to stand in the shadow of the big brother."

Review: Crucial Ballistix Tactical 2x4GB DDR3-1600MHz CL8 @ ocaholic
     Thu, Aug 16 2012 | 9:39A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Not that long ago, we reviewed a trio of Crucials fresh DDR3-1866 memory kits and established that all of them share the same, highly overclockable Micron ICs. This got us thinking whether it is possible to have a similar experience using any of the lower-rated Ballistix models as well."

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti Video Card Review w/ ASUS EVGA & MSI @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Aug 16 2012 | 9:30A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The lowest cost NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 on Newegg is the MSI N670GTX-PM2D2GD5/OC, which is $374 shipped after a $25 rebate. This GeForce GTX670 card is factory overclocked with a base clock of 965MHz and a boost clock of 1045MHz. Not a bad deal for a GeForce GTX 670, but the GeForce GTX660 Ti is a game changer. The NVIDIA SRP on the GeForce GTX 660 Ti is $300, so it is $74 less than the least costly GeForce GTX 670 video card. This makes the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti roughly 20% less and as you saw in the performance benchmarks it is a often beats the GeForce GTX 670 at a screen resolution of 1920x1080..."

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.
