     Thu, Oct 10 2013 | 9:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Step forward the ASUS GTX 760 DirectCU Mini OC. The latest card from ASUS has all of the power of a regular GTX 760, arrives factory overclocked and has ASUS` DirectCU custom cooler. Yet it measures just 17cm in length! Instead of attaching a cooler which makes the card look bigger than it actually is, ASUS have kept the reference PCB length and designed a cooler to the same size."

Raijintek Aidos Heatsink Review
     Thu, Oct 10 2013 | 4:01P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
" Driving air through the heatsinks' aluminum fins is a 92x25mm PWM fan which is held in place with rubber fan mounts. This is not a method we're not particularly fond of, wire fan clips stand the test of time. The fan spins at 2400-1000RPM and draws power from a standard 4-pin PWM connection. At full speed it pushes upwards of 53CFM air through the 55mm deep fin stack according to the manufacturer specs. Raijintek's Aidos heatsink installs onto Intel socket LGA2011/1366/1150/1155/1156/775 processors and the complete line up of AMD CPUs."

Radeon R9 270X and R7 260X Review
     Thu, Oct 10 2013 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD announced the next generation Volcanic Islands GPUs last month at their GPU14 Tech Day event in Hawaii. Previous years have seen the release of a new GPU generation every year which makes the Radeon HD 7000's shelf life surprising, even more so considering the majority of the new RX 200 series cards rebadges from existing HD 7000 products. The RX 200 series will consist of the Radeon R7 240, R7 250, R7 260X, R9 270X, R9 280X and later this month the R9 290 and R9 290X. Confused yet? Well let us try and clear a few things up.

AMD Radeon R7 260X, R9 270X, and R9 280X Tested
     Thu, Oct 10 2013 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A ton of AMD related news hit over the last couple of weeks, thanks in no small part to a multi-day event AMD held in Honolulu, Hawaii the company held to showcase all of its upcoming GPU technology. GPU14 Tech Day, as AMD called it, began with a quick talk from AMD's Corporate Vice President, Visual Computing Division Raja Koduri at Diamond Head state monument, in which Mr. Koduri dismissed much of the recent doom and gloom-directed at both AMD and the PC market in general-and claimed AMD was poised for a comeback in his opinion. He also said it was his goal to better intermingle AMD's hardware and software development teams to ultimately improve the company's products, both in terms of performance and user experience. But Koduri's early talk was just a precursor to much bigger news that broke at the event. During a live webcast, a number of AMD execs and partners were brought out on stage to reveal a myriad of new products and technologies, including the three graphics cards we'll be showing you here, the Radeon R9 280X, the Radeon R9 270X, and Radeon R7 260X...

Gskill F3-2666C11D-8GTXD 2666MHz Dual Channel
     Thu, Oct 10 2013 | 11:45A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gskill has been a popular memory provider for some time and their innovation along with work with high end overclockers helps push them to even more popularity as their memory can be seen at some tof the top benchmarks records in the world. Also the recent Computex show Gskill had a booth setup with overclocking pretty much the entire time with LN2 powered rigs all running Gskill memory just pushing for overclocking world records. The kit we have today is a TridentX model like we have seen before but this model is binned at 2666MHz at nice timings to make for a very capable kit for Z77 based platforms. However being that this kit will be tested on the new Haswell system we will see how it performs on this entirely new platform."
