Silverstone Fortress FT04 Review: Improving the Formula
     Sun, Oct 13 2013 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Silverstone cases are often praised by enthusiasts and HTPC builders alike, and with good reason. We last checked the Fortress FT03 which deserved TechSpot's Outstanding award and now two years later, the much anticipated Fortress FT04 has made it to market. Upon first glance this latest version looks a lot like the FT01 that was released back in 2008. The FT04 shares similar dimensions to the FT01, with a slight increase in size that we assume simply means it can fit drives and longer graphics cards more comfortably.

Silverstone Argon AR01 Heatsink Review
     Sun, Oct 13 2013 | 9:00A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"We're throwing the new 200W Frostytech Mrk.III Intel LGA2011 test platform thermal test platform into the mix today! Silverstone's Argon AR01 is constructed around three beefy 8mm diameter copper heatpipes which are exposed at the base of the cooler. Putting the heatpipes in direct contact with the top of the processor makes for a very thermally efficient path with a minimum of thermal joint resistance."

ASRock Fatal1ty Z87 Professional Review @ Ocaholic
     Sun, Oct 13 2013 | 8:49A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With their Fatal1ty Z87 Professional ASRock have a Z87 based gaming motherboard in their portfolio which comes with a really decent feature mix and these days this board also boasts a highly competitive price tag. For a bit more than 100 Euro you get a motherboard, that is actually worth quite a bit more. So it looks like this thing could be quite a bargain."

Creative Airwave Review @ Vortez
     Sat, Oct 12 2013 | 9:02P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Wireless speakers are quickly becoming popular and Creative have seized the opportunity to create a portable yet powerful implementation that promises simplicity and ease of use, that is, the Creative Airwave. Available in four colours (Blue, Green, Pink, Graphite) for the standard version or in red and black for the HD version, so there is a good choice to suit most preferences.

Cougar PowerX 550 W Power Supply Unit Review
     Sat, Oct 12 2013 | 4:01P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OUGAR was established in 2007 by a group of PC hardware enthusiasts in Germany, who wanted more than the typical PC cases and PSUs that had the same boring looks for umpteen years and internal layouts with endlessly uncreative cosmetic variations and poor quality. So COUGAR was formed to provide gamers more stylish product concepts with the strictest quality requirements. Today, we are going to take a look at the COUGAR PowerX 80 PLUS Bronze power supply. It comes in two models - with power outputs of 700 W and 550 W. We will be looking at the 550 W model specifically. Here are its key features :

Thermaltake MEKA G-Unit Mechanical Keyboard Review
     Sat, Oct 12 2013 | 2:09P | Overclocking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall the MEKA G-Unit Red Switch Edition Mechanical Keyboard from Thermaltake`s branch of ESPORTS gear was not too bad. I won`t say it was one of my favorite keyboards that I`ve used but honestly that goes back to the fact that I hate Reds. This keyboard was designed specifically to cater to those of you who love the Cherry MX Reds - and that`s just not me. That doesn`t change the fact that this keyboard is built quite well and could kill a zombie in your gaming room without a struggle. It also doesn`t change the unique gaming lighting patterns available - providing some lighting rather than none at all."

Palit GTX 780 SUPER JETSTREAM videocard @ Hardwareoverclock.com
     Sat, Oct 12 2013 | 1:41P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hardwareoverclock.com has just posted another review. Last week we have tested the Palit GTX 780 SUPER JETSTREAM video card. The Super Stream has a better cooler and a higher clock. A Triple Fan design offers triple the cooling performance, and combined with the 8CM-9CM-8CM Smart Fans, heat is effectively drawn away from hot spots. The Base Clock is 980MHz, the Boost Clock 1033MHz. Also the memory clock is a little bit higher, 3100 MHz. Title: Palit GTX 780 SUPER JETSTREAM videocard @ Hardwareoverclock.com"

nVidia Driver Charts - 327.23 WHQL Tested @ Ocaholic
     Sat, Oct 12 2013 | 1:17P | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For manufacturers of graphics cards, it`s not only important to have a highly complex chip, their actual drivers need to be optimized to the last bit. Therefore it`s a small wonder that GPU manufacturers release lots of driver updates during the year, making sure, there are no compatbility issues as well as increasing performance. In theses charts we tested 17 different drivers, and we will keep adding newer versions in future."

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.
