SilverStone PS08: A Decent Ultra Low-Cost Micro-ATX Case
     Tue, Mar 04 2014 | 4:51P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With being in the process of assembling a new automated test farm for Phoronix Test Suite / OpenBenchmarking.org / Phoromatic test purposes, when it came to finding new computer cases I ended up finding a decent choice with SilverStone. While SilverStone is known for their very expensive and high-end cases, the Precision PS08 is less luxurious but sells at a very nice price."

Rosewill Legacy V3 Plus-B ITX Case - BCCHardware
     Tue, Mar 04 2014 | 4:04P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Legacy V3 Plus-B is a solid product as it is the perfect middle-ground between size and function. With that in mind, there are a couple of drawbacks. The fanless design of the case is wonderful and the aluminum case helps dissipate heat, but if you have a graphics card and intend on using it for many long hours of gaming, you`ll need to make sure your PSU can handle the heat-load and if it will be able to provide adequate ventilation to the system."

MSI R9 270X Gaming 4G @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Mar 04 2014 | 9:48A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
To date I have had the chance to take a look at a few different R9 270Xs. All of the cards have been extremely similar for the most part with most of the differences coming from small overclocks and their different cooling designs. Today I have a completely unique card that stands out from the others. You see the other cards all have 4 gigs of memory where the MSI R9 270X Gaming 4G has 4 gigs of memory. Today I`m going to see how the difference in memory affects the performance in our benchmark suite."

Just Cause 2 4-Years Later Reviewed
     Tue, Mar 04 2014 | 9:07A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Is Just Cause 2 a game to remember and return to, or should we let it disappear like an exploded fuel tank? In my opinion this is a game to remember. The chaotic, open-world design can supply you with dozens of hours of fun, before and after finishing the final mission. The graphics stand up very well and the performance is excellent. It may have some shortcomings, but nothing to keep me from recommending it. If you like open-world games and making a game into your playground, Just Cause 2 is an easy game to recommend to you. You can also check out its many mods (there are more than the multiplayer mod) and its DLC. The DLC, by the way, only add weapons and vehicles for purchase in the Black Market. They can still be a lot of fun, especially as the items come fully upgraded, but do not add any greater content to the game."

A brand that needs more recognition in the PC gaming peripheral market is Shogun Bros.

Insane Crypto-Currency Mining Rigs @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, Mar 03 2014 | 9:07A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Crypto-Currency mining has really taken off over the past year or so. So much so that we have seen a shortage of AMD graphics cards that are used for mining this currency. There are even motherboards and PC cases made specifically for mining. While many people mining are just using 1-2 graphics cards there some pretty insane setups. Read on to see what I am talking about"

Rollei S-50 Wi-Fi Nitro Circus Live Limited Edition Action Camera
     Mon, Mar 03 2014 | 8:31A | Imaging | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
People have always liked to take impressive risks in order to feel alive and just by looking at some of the most popular extreme sports like parachuting (plane jumping), skiing, snowboarding, Cyaking, deep diving and surfing that`s not really hard to figure out. However why do something so extreme if you can`t keep a visual record of it not only as proof that you actually did it but also to help you improve. Up until a few years ago there was simply no easy way for people to record video while taking part in outdoor activities something which changed with the arrival of tiny cameras that could be easily mounted pretty much everywhere. We are of course talking about Action Cameras and today we will be checking out the brand new S-50 Wi-Fi Nitro Circus Live Limited Edition model by Rollei."
