DDR3-2400MHz On AMDs A10 Kaveri With Kingstons HyperX Beast
     Thu, Jan 30 2014 | 6:26A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier in the week I published benchmarks showing AMD Kaveri`s DDR3-800MHz through DDR3-2133MHz system memory performance. Those results showed this latest-generation AMD APU craving -- and being able to take advantage of -- high memory frequencies. Many were curious how DDR3-2400MHz would fair with Kaveri so here`s some benchmarks as we test out Kingston`s HyperX Beast 8GB DDR3-2400MHz memory kit."

Sapphire Radeon R7 260X OC Review @ TechwareLabs.com
     Wed, Jan 29 2014 | 4:17P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you haven`t been following AMD lately with their recent branding and product nomenclature changes at the end of last year, than you might not be aware that the bevy of products released recently are nothing more than existing products simply renamed and pricing adjusted. With that said, today we will be looking at the Sapphire Radeon R7 260X OC, which is essentially a renamed Radeon HD 7790 with TrueAudio support enabled, and higher GPU clock rate. Is there enough here to get excited with the new naming over? Let`s find out."

The Linux 3.13 Kernel Is A Must-Have For AMD RadeonSI Users
     Wed, Jan 29 2014 | 3:26P | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Linux 3.13 kernel that will be released in the very near future is very worth the upgrade if you are a RadeonSI user -- in particular, the Radeon HD 7000 series GPUs and newer on the Gallium3D Linux graphics driver -- but other open-source graphics driver users as well may also see nice improvements in the new kernel release. Here`s some benchmarks showing off the gains found with the Linux 3.13 kernel for Radeon HD and R9 graphics cards."

VisionTek Data Fusion PCIe SSD 240GB Review @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Jan 29 2014 | 12:40P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It?s been quite some time since we had a look at a PCIe based SSD. The PCIe trend is gaining steam, especially in enterprise applications, as the SATA III bandwidth gets maxed out. VisionTek, long known for their graphics cards, is using their PCIe expertise to get their footing in the SSD arena with their version of a PCIe SSD which is powered by a pair of SandForce SF-2281 controllers. They sent us over a 240GB version to scope out and we?re happy to do so. Although the product branding says Data Fusion drive, VisionTek let us know that the official drive name is simply called the VisionTek PCIe SSD so that?s how we?ll reference it in this article. Read on to see how it performs!"

Akasa Newton NUC Case @ techPowerUp
     Wed, Jan 29 2014 | 10:07A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel managed to turn some heads with the NUC, but with its active cooling solution, it leaves things to be desired in terms of noise. A few manufacturers have stepped up to offer passive cooling platforms, one of which is the Akasa Newton. Competitively priced and with a good feature set, it has all the right ingredients to make for an excellent silent solution."

Titan Master USB Fan Review
     Wed, Jan 29 2014 | 10:02A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For several years I have been using my wife`s old desk fan she got during band camp in the 1980`s. It was loud, bulky, and horribly inefficient - I am sure it resulted in several pounds of carbon being released into the atmosphere every time I turned it on. But the Titan Master USB Fan firmly plants me in this century. It is whisper quiet, uses little energy, and moves the right amount of air."

Icy Dock MB290SPB EZ-FIT Lite and MB343SP EZ-Fit Trio Hard drive & SSD Bracket Review @HiTech Legion
     Wed, Jan 29 2014 | 8:31A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Icy Dock has delivered many products designed to make the most out of given storage space, and the new Flex-Fit Trio and EZ-Fit Lite do exactly that. Both the Flex-Fit Trio (MB343SP) and EZ-Fit Lite (MB290SP-B) are designed to mount multiple smaller drives in the space of one standard larger drive. In the case of the Flex-Fit Trio, one 3.5 and two 2.5 drives can be mounted into the space of a single 5.25 optical drive. In addition, the Flex-Fit Trio can use the aforementioned 3.5 drive space for internal drives or for 3.5 drives such as floppies or card readers with full access from the front. The EZ-Fit Lite has mounting for two 2.5 drives which can be mounted into a single 3.5 drive bay. In addition, using both together gives you the option of mounting a total of four 2.5 drives into a single 5.25 optical bay."

Corsair CS Series Modular 650W Power Supply Review
     Wed, Jan 29 2014 | 6:26A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The CS Modular Series adds yet another new tier to Corsairs already formidable PC power supply offering. The CS650M test unit produced very good DC load regulation with very good efficiency (easily met 80Plus Gold certification criteria) across a full range of loads. And the unit was able to keep AC ripple and noise well under control, even at full load. The CS650M comes with a good assortment of fixed and flat ribbon-style cables. The main 24-pin ATX, 4+4-pin ATX/EPS, and PCI-E connector cables are nice and long (25-29). The only minor issues we could find to complain about are the 3-year warranty and use of a sleeve bearing fan."

Sapphire R9 290 Tri-X @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Jan 28 2014 | 4:17P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although all of the R9 270Xs and R9 280Xs that we have covered have been extremely exciting, especially the Toxic cards, to date we hadnt had a chance to take a look at the newest cards from AMD. Today we finally have that chance. Sapphire sent over their R9 290 Tri-X for us to put through our tests. The Toxic cards have dominated in our other reviews so I am extremely interested in how well the 290 Tri-X will perform with it sharing a very similar cooling design. With high expectations, lets jump into it and let the numbers do the talking."

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.
