Ivy Bridge Overclocking Guide - Air Water LN2 @ ocaholic
     Tue, May 08 2012 | 1:21P | Overclocking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ivy Bridge overclocking is almost identical to Sandy Bridge overclocking in that it is basically a CPU which is meant to be overclocked through the multiplier and not the base clock (BCLK). Sandy Bridge overclocking brought a whole new level of simplicity to the overclocking realm, a user only needed to change a few voltages, and change some ratios and they were easily granted a huge performance increase."

CM Storm Trigger Gaming Keyboard Review
     Tue, May 08 2012 | 12:03P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After taking a look at Cooler Master's QuickFire Pro keyboard last month, we walked away knowing that the company knows how to make a quality mechanical offering. Will the Trigger reaffirm that belief? It adds macro support, a palmrest and expands the backlighting to the entire keyboard - so it has a good chance.

VisionTek 7850 and 7870
     Tue, May 08 2012 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Until Nvidia's mid-range Kepler cards hit the market, it looks as though AMD is racking up the marketshare in this consumer segment, as cards in this $250 - $350 price range generally hit a sweet spot for gamers; frankly, it can be a lucrative market. VisionTek is an AMD partner that typically produces reference designs, but these new cards have been tweaked, looking to produce better temperatures in a sleekly-styled package. Performance is one thing, but we're suckers for great value as well, so let's take a closer look at these graphics cards and find out if they can meet our expectations.”

Current SSD Projects On The Go

Posted by: STAFF
Every now and then it’s nice to let out a bit of a heads up what we are working on behind the scenes at The SSD Review. It just might give a bit of an indication as to what could be published as front page coverage soon enough. Take a look here to see a great disassembled Intel 910 PCIe SSD shot, one of the OWC Accelsior PCIe SSD and a great shot of 32 Intel 520 SSDs and 5 Intel RAID Cards. The best is yet to come!

Exclusive First Look Of The Leetgion ElDruin Gaming Mouse
     Tue, May 08 2012 | 10:43A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Leetgion surprised pretty much everybody with their latest StarCraft II optimized Hellion gaming mouse but they also have another gaming mouse in the works optimized for the much awaited Diablo III game called El`Druin. So far only 3D Rendered pictures have been circulating the world but as always we got the first exclusive look at their product which features an even more impressive and at the same time radical design than the Hellion. Design aside the El`Druin features the same 5000DPI AVAGO 9500 Laser Sensor as the Hellion, Omron micro-switches and much more (specifications listed above). So take a look and tell us what you think."

CPU shoot-out: Intel Atom D2700 vs. AMD E-450
     Tue, May 08 2012 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel released a new generation of Atom processors based on 32nm transistors. The Atom D2500 and D2700 are intended for cheap mini- or all-in-one PCs. Atom processors with model numbers starting with N are used in netbooks, a product category that has been losing market share since the arrival of tablets. A logical use for Atom processors will of course be the upcoming Windows 8 x86 tablets. Thus far the Atom processors have not impressed very much. The energy efficiency sacrificed too much performance, and compared to the ARM competitors they weren't even that efficient. AMD's Fusion counterpart with its powerful integrated GPU was more interesting for light-weight computers. Does the new generation Atoms change our perception? Hardware.Info examined the new top model Atom, the D2700.

Antec Three Hundred Two review: high-end entry-level chassis?
     Tue, May 08 2012 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Three Hundred Two is a chassis that seems to have been created with two goals in mind: to make the case as affordable as possible while also maintaining the features for a high-end system. This requires compromises to be made, which in this case has translated to a somewhat higher price combined with more internal space and superior cooling compared to the predecessor. There is plenty of space for components, even if some choices are unusual (SSD behind the motherboard plate) or mounting techniques that are a bit roundabout (external securing of cards). On the other hand, the Three Hundred Two cools very well, especially for a chassis with just two fans.

Crucial Ballistix Elite 16GB DDR3-1866
     Tue, May 08 2012 | 9:00A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
DDR3 memory modules are getting faster, bigger and more inexpensive. This is especially very interesting, when these three factors are included in one DDR3 RAM kit, to meet also the highest requirements. We are talking about the brand-new Crucial Ballistix Elite PC3-14900 CL9 16GB DDR3 kit, which consists of 2x 8GB modules and which should reach the DDR3-1866 of the XMP profile with low 1.5V. Of course we have tested this with an Intel system from ASRock and additionally we overclocked this DDR3 kit up to the limit on an AMD system to find out if this kit is really the Elite. All overclocking results can be compared with several previously tested DDR3 memory.

Crucial Adrenaline 50GB Solid State Cache Review @ circuitREMIX
     Tue, May 08 2012 | 8:11A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While SSDs make for extremely attractive purchases from a performance point of view, they can be relatively pricy, especially when compared to the cost-per-gigabyte of traditional hard drives. The capacity of entry level SSDs in the lower price range are also mostly made up of 60-64GB, which are too small to use as an application and OS drive for many users. So while we`re in this transitional phase, a new class of interim devices have cropped up in the market, solid state cache drives. These solutions pair up small solid state drives with caching software, and provides users with the performance benefit of an SSD while maintaining the capacity of a hard drive. Today, we`re looking at Crucial`s solid state cache drive, the Adrenaline. It combines a 50GB Crucial m4 drive with NVELO`s Dataplex caching software in a package that comes in at under $100."

Corsair Hydro H80 Watercooling System Tested on Frostytech
     Tue, May 08 2012 | 12:37A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Corsair Hydro H80 self contained watercooling system is about the 700th thermal solution review we've undertaken at Frostytech.com. Based on 13 years hands on experience testing hundreds of heatsinks, I think you can take stock in our comments when we criticize the H80's few deficiencies as equally as when we laud its attributes. For while the Corsair Hydro H80 does perform exceptionally well, it ain't perfect.
www.pcstats.com
Corsair's Hydro H80 is a no fuss, no mess CPU liquid cooling solution that installs with ease onto Intel socket LGA2011/1366/1155/1156/775 and AMD socket AM3/AM2/FM1 processors. The unit consists of two parts, a 12v DC pump head with integrated reservoir and thin skived copper waterblock, and the fluid-to-air aluminum heat exchanger.

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.
