Silverstone Grandia GD10 HTPC Chassis Review
     Wed, Nov 12 2014 | 6:57P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Silverstone Grandia series is one of the corner stones of the HTPC market; they’ve long been one of the most popular choices for AV enthusiasts who want a PC integrated into their entertainment setup. The Grandia series has always balanced premium build quality, great aesthetics, competitive prices and more; Silverstone look set to continue that trend with the new Grandia GD10 HTPC chassis. The GD10 features many of the same style points and component capabilities of previous generation chassis from the Grandia series, which is no bad thing. The new model comes equipped with support for most major motherboard types, including SSI-CEB, ATX and Micro-ATX. As you can see from the specifications below, the GD10 comes with support for up to five hard drives, depending on their configuration. The chassis will also handle a range of 80 to 120mm fans; with three 120mm fans pre-installed. 12.2? graphics cards are also supported, which opens up possibilities for many of the high-end cards that are currently on the market.

Enermax Revolution XT 530W Semi-Modular Power Supply Review
     Wed, Nov 12 2014 | 6:57P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It has been a while since we’ve taken a look at a new Enermax power supply here at eTeknix. Despite that Enermax have been busy releasing new products left, right and centre under their own brand name and under their other power supply brand LEPA. Enermax have always targeted a fairly high end user with their power supplies which is probably what has gained them a long-term reputation as being trend-setters in the power supply industry. In this review we are checking out one of their units from the Revolution XT series and we are looking at the popular 530W wattage model. I remember from reviewing past Enermax PSUs that although their products were stellar quality they often lacked a little something special in the cable design and also in pricing: let’s hope this unit can reverse this trend. Straight away we can see Enermax listened to feedback on the cabling as they now offer all-black ribbon cables on the modular and hard-wired cables. The rest of the key features of the Revolution XT series include 80 Plus Gold efficiency, a semi-modular design, a DC to DC converter design, a 5 year warranty and the promise of “ultra silent” operation thanks to the high quality Enermax fan used. The Revolution XT series is geared for single and dual GPU systems depending on the voltage chosen, the Revolution XT 530W that we are testing is mainly geared for high performance single GPU systems running demanding graphics cards like AMD R9 290(X)s or Nvidia GTX 780(Ti)s.

LG G3 vs Samsung Galaxy S5
     Wed, Nov 12 2014 | 6:56P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Picking your new phone is a big decision; you are going to be stuck with it for the new few years. Because of that you don’t want to pick the first one you look at. This is especially difficult for people who have been in the Android ecosystem because there are such a wide variety of phones. Currently two of the most popular are the LG G3 and the Samsung Galaxy S5. Both have a lot of similarities and big followings. I’ve been using both phones for a good portion of the summer, today I’m going to look back and see how they compare to hopefully help a few of you decide on what phone is best for you.

Fractal Design Newton R3 1000W Semi-Modular Power Supply Review
     Wed, Nov 12 2014 | 6:55P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Fractal Design kicked off its brand by making a single type of product: computer cases. However, like many other computer hardware brands Fractal Design made the decision to expand its product portfolio to encompass other things. One of Fractal Design’s new product areas is power supplies and just like with their cases Fractal Design were adamant about making sure they reach the same high level of quality their brand is renowned for. On the topic of high quality it is time for the Newton R3 1000W power supply to enter. Fractal Design have pulled out all the stops with this new power supply model which features high quality 80 Plus Platinum capable internals, a modular design and a glossy white or black finish to match their computer cases. Fractal Design are also renowned for producing quiet cases; they were one of the first brands to mainstream the use of noise-dampening foam inside cases. Consequently it shouldn’t surprise you that the Newton R3 1000W power supply offers a hybrid fan mode that doesn’t spin up until the fan is needed. Even when the fan does spin up Fractal Design are claiming very low noise output as well as enhanced reliability for a ball-bearing based fan design. Other noteworthy selling points include the use of Japanese capacitors in this power supply’s construction and an impressive 5 year warranty.

Kingston HyperX Fury 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review
     Wed, Nov 12 2014 | 6:55P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
High capacity USB flash drives have become as essential to many people as wrist watches so it's not really strange that we keep getting many emails and FB messages by a large number of our readers asking for more such reviews. We have stated quite a few times in the past that we also support having such reviews online since we believe that USB flash drives are not really getting the same attention as other storage media (these things cost money too right?). Unfortunately although prices have dropped significantly we've yet to see affordable 256GB/512GB models and from what we can tell it may actually be quite a while until we do. Still since 64/128GB models are undoubtedly the most popular models right now in the market primarily because they combine respectable capacity at very tempting prices today we will be taking a look at the latest HyperX Fury 64GB USB 3.0 flash drive by Kingston.

CUDA core count of 1536
     Wed, Nov 12 2014 | 6:54P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When NVIDIA launched the GeForce GTX 980 and GTX 970 graphics cards last month, part of the discussion at our meetings also centered around the mobile variants of Maxwell. The NDA was a bit later though and Scott wrote up a short story announcing the release of the GTX 980M and the GTX 970M mobility GPUs. Both of these GPUs are based on the same GM204 design as the desktop cards, though as you should have come to expect by now, do so with lower specifications than the similarly-named desktop options. With a CUDA core count of 1536, the GTX 980M has 33% fewer shader cores than the desktop GTX 980, along with a slightly lower base clock speed. The result is a peak theoretical performance of 3.189 TFLOPs, compared to 4.6 TFLOPs on the GTX 980 desktop. In fact, that is only slightly higher than the GTX 880M based on Kepler, that clocks in with the same CUDA core count (1536) but a TFLOP capability of 2.9. Bear in mind that the GTX 880M is using a different architecture design than the GTX 980M; Maxwell's design advantages go beyond just CUDA core count and clock speed.

The Antec P100 is the compact mid-tower version of the P280, following the same interpretation of a high quality enthusiast chassis. We take the chassis for a spin to see whether it revs up just as nicely as its big brother or ends up being short on horse power."

Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury FPS Gaming Mouse Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Wed, Nov 12 2014 | 3:18P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When I first started getting into PC gaming one of the companies that really stood out for gaming mice was Logitech. It seemed everyone I knew was rocking a Logitech gaming mouse. With the popularity of PC Gaming and eSports there have been many gaming peripherals companies pop up like ROCCAT, Tt eSPORTS and Mad Catz. Its crazy to realize, but I havent used a Logitech mouse in years. Well they have sent me their brand new gaming mouse, the G402 Hyperion Fury. Logitech has coined this mouse as the worlds fastest gaming mouse and it is made for FPS gamers. Since I mainly play FPS games, this should be a good fit. The mouse features Logitechs Fusion Engine, 8 programmable buttons, 32-bit ARM processor, on the fly DPS switching and much more. Will this mouse make me think of Logitech as a gaming company again? Read on and find out!"
