Tesoro SHRIKE HL2 Laser Gaming Mouse Review
     Mon, Apr 15 2013 | 4:20P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As most of you know Game of Thrones Season 3 aired 2 days ago and so after watching the first episode i still can`t figure out why game developers have still to make an RTS based on the series. Sure it would take some time for someone to actually make a good RTS based on the series but since the storyline is already done and the landscape is also ready (based on the intro map) so why not? A 3rd person RPG based on the series was released last year and we did end up playing it but that`s an experience Id rather forget all together if possible (yes it was that bad). Luckily as things are now we have quite a few single and MMO FPS (First Person Shooter) games and since we are currently spending quite a few hours per day on some of them we decided to test the SHRIKE HL2 gaming mouse designed and manufactured by a brand new player on the block called Tesoro."

CM Storm Scout II Advanced Case Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Mon, Apr 15 2013 | 12:49P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The CM Storm Scout II Advanced is a mid-tower chassis that is part of Cooler Master`s gaming line. The CM Storm Scout II Advanced case further improves upon the initial Scout II offering with the addition of two more intake fans, an extra pair of tool-free HDD rails and one more SSD mounting bracket. Aside from the midnight black and gunmetal gray color versions of the initial Scout II case, the advanced version will also be available in a ghost white version, outfitted with white LED fans instead of red LED. While the CM Storm Scout II Advanced carries the same retail price of $99.99 as the original Scout II, the ghost white version will be available for $109.99 and all versions carry a two-year warranty."

Club3D Radeon HD 7790 13Series + CrossFire Review @ Ocaholic
     Mon, Apr 15 2013 | 9:59A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Club3D, VTX3D and PowerColor (TUL Corp. in fact) are the only brands who released a Radeon HD 7790 following AMD`s reference design. Therefore we wanted to have a look at one of those cards and see if they made a good choice releasing the reference design while no other manufacturer did. Our sample comes from Club3D and features a little factory overclocking on the core (+30 MHz). It is also the cheapest Radeon HD 7790 on the market. For good? ?"

Nvidia GTX 650 Ti Boost 2GB @ LanOC Reviews
     Mon, Apr 15 2013 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just a few days over one year ago today Nvidia launched their First Kepler card, the GTX 680. If you asked me then if I would be covering a new Kepler based card (other than a GK110 based card) I doubt I would have believed you. With AMD introducing their HD 7790 this weekend that filled in a gap in their product lineup Nvidia had a response right away with their GTX 650 Ti Boost. The GTX 650 Ti Boost falls between the GTX 650 Ti and the GTX 660, right in the middle of their Sweet Spot cards. These are cards that should play any game on the market at 1080p and a price point that most can afford. Lets look a little closer and see what it is all about."

Sony VAIO T14 Ultrabook Review - Out With Express Cache In With DataPlex For SandForce Driven Speed
     Sun, Apr 14 2013 | 10:07P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sony`s new VIAO touchscreen T14 arrived last week, complete with hybrid hard drive and Windows 8. Frequent readers of TSSDR understand my opinion of both, an opinion that was initially hard to contain with their teaming up in what appears to be an attractive ultra design. Swapping out the hard drive for an SSD was a given. Stepping outside the box, we believed the analysis and replacement of ExpressCache with NVELO Dataplex might be worth the effort and worthy of report. Could it be done? To date, we haven`t seen Samsung`s NVELO Dataplex in any ultra book or laptop design, yet it is unquestionably the highest performing caching software that we know of. Is there another that could actually see a hybrid ultra book design reach exceed data speeds above 500MB/s by twinning the performance of a caching SSD onto that of a hard drive?"

Crucial Ballistix 240-pin DIMM DDR3 PC3-12800 memory module @ Rbmods
     Sun, Apr 14 2013 | 5:02P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ever had a problem installing your brand new CPU cooler due to high memory heatsinks blocking the space around the socket? There is a solution for this issue! Crucial has released a low profile ram kit. The sticks are about half the height of normal ram sticks, but I have one question; how do they perform?"

Cougar PowerX 550W Power Supply Unit Review
     Sun, Apr 14 2013 | 3:50P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With many people already having purchased one of the latest GTX Titan graphics cards by NVIDIA (it was sold out after all) it really makes sense for us to focus on reviews about powerful and quite expensive 80Plus Platinum certified power supply units that can successfully feed that monster of a card with sufficient, clean and stable power (and we have). However since most people out there seem opt for either an GTX 660 or for one of the Radeon HD 7850 cards instead we also need to cater to their needs and so today we decided to bring you a review of one of the latest PSUs to hit the market, the reasonably priced 550W 80Plus Bronze Certified PowerX by Cougar."

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.
