Posted by: STAFF
It`s been a while since we treated you with a memory review, but not to fear, Ballistix is here. Crucial`s Ballistix series has been a well-known phenomenon for years now, with the Tracers lighting up like Christmas trees.

EVGA SuperNOVA NEX1500 Classified Power Supply Review
     Wed, Dec 12 2012 | 12:03P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
EVGA did not want to send us one of its 1500W PSU beasts to review, so we went out and bought the $450 behemoth so we could put it through the HardOCP PSU grinder. EVGA clearly states that NEX1500 PSU is all about "no compromises," but we suggest that compromises are exactly what you will be making; more than a few too.

ASUS MX279 review: 27-inch design monitor
     Wed, Dec 12 2012 | 12:02P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS announced its new 'Designo' monitors several months back, and we recently managed to get our hands on one of them. We tested the 27-inch MX279H, a monitor with a striking design. It has an elegant base and aluminium frame, and has several similarities with the recently tested and excellent LG IPS277L. It will be interesting to find out how the two compare.

Posted by: STAFF
Have you ever whipped out your smartphone to take a picture that you then post on Instagram or Facebook? And then you wished that you had a better camera to take that picture, only to realize that your standalone camera isn’t the most connected thing in the world? Trying to find a way to marry these two desires is the Google Android-powered Nikon COOLPIX S800c digital camera.

Samsung PN51E6500EF Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Wed, Dec 12 2012 | 10:13A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Contrary to popular belief, plasma HDTVs aren`t dead. They`re less energy efficient than their LED-backlit counterparts, but Samsung, Panasonic, and LG continue to make solid plasma screens. The 51-inch Samsung PN51E6500EF offers plenty of online services and apps, out-of-the-box 3D and most importantly, a great picture."

ASUS ROG Vulcan ANC Review @ Vortez
     Wed, Dec 12 2012 | 9:15A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It was no surprise when ASUS and the Republic of Gamers design team moved into other aspects of gaming life and a high end gaming headset is a natural place to start. Many gamers choose to use a headset and it is a market where many companies have managed to gain an established foot hold and with the Vulcan ANC, ASUS hope to stamp their mark amongst them. The simple yet elegant design bares only its roots by flying the ROG colours of black and red."

Corsair Vengeance K90 Illuminated Gaming Keyboard Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Wed, Dec 12 2012 | 9:14A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If I could pick one brand that made the biggest splash at ThinkComputers this year it would hands down be the Vengeance line of products from Corsair. I started reviewing Corsair non-component products a couple years ago with their speaker line. The transition to their input devices was smooth for me because I was already reviewing so many other input devices from other manufacturers. Every Corsair product Ive reviewed personally has left a lasting impression on me; So much so that the Corsair Vengeance K90 Illuminated Gaming Keyboard is a product that Ive been trying to get my hands on all year. On paper the K90 looks quite promising. I always make notion to other things that could be added or subtracted to various products and the K90 looks like it could be the porridge that Goldie Locks picks."

ASUS ROG Vulcan Pro ANC Gaming Headset @ techPowerUp
     Wed, Dec 12 2012 | 4:03A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS`s ROG Vulcan Pro headset features an active noise-cancellation system and folds up neatly in its carrying bag. ASUS even throws in a well-performing USB sound card. We put this well-featured headset to the test to see if active noise cancellation is the next must-have on gaming headsets."

Samsung 840 Pro SSD review
     Wed, Dec 12 2012 | 3:34A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,In this article we test, benchmark and review the Samsung 840 Pro SSD. What a stunning piece of technology this is. An SSD that is extremely fast and actually amongst the handful of fastest storage units we have ever tested. Samsung created a little monster with the 840 Pro series of SSDs, they are remarkably fast in pretty much any and all tests from our benchmark suite. Head on over into the review."

Arctic Dual USB Car Charger @ Benchmark Reviews
     Wed, Dec 12 2012 | 12:19A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
People love their portable electronics, and can`t get escape without their phone, tablet, and digital multimedia devices in tow. We take our ebook readers with us everywhere, carry a Bluetooth wireless headset for calls on the road, and occasionally find time to take pictures with the digital camera. All of these devices require power, and when you`re away from home it`s hard to keep batteries charged during long trips or after prolonged use. Every vehicle has a 12V cigarette lighter receptacle, but most lack USB power outlets. Arctic Cooling offers the Dual USB Car Charger (model PSAEQ-AC01901-BL) to keep your devices working while on the road, with two USB ports and the ability to fast-charge at up to 2.1 amps of power."

Hitman: Absolution (PC) Review @ Techgage
     Wed, Dec 12 2012 | 12:18A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Much has changed with the Hitman series since it took a hiatus six years ago, both in and out of game. Hitman: Absolution has been released through a new publisher, and has been developed with a new direction in the story. Do these changes bring us closer to hitting the mark of excellence, or should the series have stayed in purgatory?"

Fractal Design Node 605 HTPC Case @ Hi Tech Legion
     Tue, Dec 11 2012 | 11:59P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Fractal Design Node 605 certainly sets itself apart from other HTPC cases on the market. The Fractal Design Node 605 comes in looking for all the world like a piece of ultra-high end audio equipment more so than a small form factor computer case, with a sleek black brushed aluminum face and soft touch power button. Of course, there is more going on with the Node 605 than what you see from the outside. Down at the bottom is a very discreet flip down door that houses front audio, two USB 3.0, Firewire and a built in card reader, all that you would hope for in an entertainment unit. While fitting in with your high end audio, the internals of the Node 605 can house some serious computer components, including a full sized ATX motherboard. Not to be sold short on cooling, the Node 605 comes equipped with two 120mm R2 fans with room for one more 120mm and two 80mm. A side mounted three speed fan controller takes care of the stock fans plus one more optional fan."

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.
