     Fri, Feb 06 2015 | 1:37P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
DDR4 memory isn't exactly mainstream just yet, but that isn't keeping the memory makers from releasing hundreds of memory kits to the market. There are over 200 memory modules listed online at Newegg, so there isn't a shortage of DDR4 memory modules online. Next week Crucial will be introducing the Ballistix Elite DDR4 series of memory modules (product website), which is the premium line for Crucial.

be quiet! Silent Base 800 Case
     Fri, Feb 06 2015 | 1:28P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I start this review by simply noting the unique model number of BG001, because for be quiet!, the Silent Base 800 Computer Case is the very first case from be quiet! and the Orange flavor is the very first in the series of three cases from this German computer parts supplier. This new case has hit the ground running and we at Think Computers have been given a distinct privilege to review it, so it's a little historic for us to write on a case that is the very first in a total line of 3 cases as of this review. The BG001 is the Orange version, the BG002 is the Black version, and the BG003 is the Silver version. The accent colors of the case is really the only difference you find which gives you three different color combinations to choose from. The internal rubber colors are black, silver or orange as in the one that we are testing in this review."

Getting A Real Sense Of Dell's Venue 7 8000 Tablet
     Fri, Feb 06 2015 | 1:24P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Take everything you know and expect from an Android tablet, crumple it into a ball, and throw it away. Done? Good -- none of what you just purged from your brain will do you any good when looking at the Venue 8 7000 from Dell. It's not heavily modified and tied to an online shopping experience like Amazon's Fire tablets, nor does it take a barebones approach like the defunct Nexus 7 from Google. The Venue 8 7000 doesn't even flex an ARM processor. So now that you know what Dell's latest Android tablet doesn't have, let's spend a few moments talking about exactly what it is. For one, it's the world's thinnest tablet, measuring a mere 6 millimeters wide, or 0.24 inches and change if you're staunchly opposed to the metric system...

     Fri, Feb 06 2015 | 1:14P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF


Arguably the most critical mainstay behind the inter-connectivity of modern technology devices is the Universal Serial Bus, or USB for short. The connection provides opportunity for an almost limitless level of connectivity that has redefined the way in which we use computing devices. So what does it take to make something as well-defined as USB even better?

     Fri, Feb 06 2015 | 1:09P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This case, the Sentey Optimus Plus, features a large side panel window instead of fan mounts. Additional features include a fan controller, filtered intakes, a dedicated cooling fan for hard drives, and a SD card reader. These features come at an additional premium though when compared to other cases in the same price range. In this Benchmark Reviews article, I will discuss the Optimus Plus in depth and whether or not this is a good mid budget case for your next build.

Posted by: STAFF
"Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have Snef Computer Design's “Icy Blue Angel II” build.
