Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB and SSDNow V+200 240GB Review
     Thu, May 31 2012 | 12:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After the success of its SF-1200 (1222) controller, virtually every SSD maker was eager to climb aboard the SandForce express. That bandwagon continued trucking through last year, as the second-gen SF-2200 (2281) powered many of 2011's noteworthy flash drives -- OCZ's Vertex 3 among them. Even Kingston, which previously used Toshiba chips, adopted SandForce's SF-2200 starting with last year's HyperX line. It's unclear when SandForce's next controllers will arrive, but in the meantime, companies seem to be making the most of its second-gen chips. Kingston, for instance, has released a pair of new SF-2281-based drives said to emphasize speed and affordability: the HyperX 3K and the SSDNow V+200. The former is aimed at enthusuasts and uses synchronous memory, while the latter uses cheaper asynchronous memory.

PowerColor HD 7850 PCS+ 2 GB @ techPowerUp
     Thu, May 31 2012 | 10:58A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
PowerColor`s HD 7850 PCS+ is the highest clocked HD 7850 card you can buy at this time. Thanks to its GPU clock speed of 1 GHz it provides excellent performance and the PCS+ cooler keeps everything cool and quiet. With just $20 over the AMD reference design, the price increase is also reasonable."

A Futurelooks News Flash - Antec Earthwatts 650 Platinum and High Current Pro HCP-1000 Platinum Power Supplies Reviewed
     Thu, May 31 2012 | 9:01A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
a post to your own news section would totally be appreciated. If we`re sending our news to the wrong place, we apologize. Just send us a message with the correct address to the address below. Don`t forget that,Futurelooks checks out the platinum side of 80PLUS with two Antec power supplies ... * * *Antec Earthwatts 650 Platinum and High Current Pro HCP-1000 Platinum Power Supplies Reviewed* * * An 80PLUS certified PSU ensures that the system runs as lean and efficient as possible resulting in lower power consumption. This helps lower power bills, especially if you run multiple systems. Its sad that HP, Gateway or Dell branded desktop computers dont use them, making them all quite wasteful. However, enthusiasts who build or order custom systems can really benefit from an 80PLUS. Thats why weve got two 80PLUS Platinum level power supplies to play with today. *"

Kingston DataTraveler Elite 3.0 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review @ TestFreaks
     Thu, May 31 2012 | 8:45A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The DataTraveler Elite 3.0 is a capless drive, which means folks like myself who invariably lose their caps can rest easy. With USB 3.0 speeds of 70MB/s read, 30MB/s write it should be fast enough for most users. "

Super Flower Golden Silent 500w Review - XSReviews
     Thu, May 31 2012 | 7:34A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Power Supplies are the cornerstone of an enthusiast`s system. It provides the backbone that everything else works off of, so it`s important to get a good one; an efficient one; a stable one. If you don`t like the whirring of fans too, it might not be a bad plan to get a silent one. What`s the best way to keep your PSU quiet? Get one that features passive cooling. That`s what I`m looking at today, the Super Flower Golden Silent 500w, passively cooled PSU. A link to the article would be much appreciated."

Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

The AMD 990FX chipset has been out for a while now, yet Biostar's TA990FXE motherboard still gets you in the game with plenty of PCI Express lanes for Crossfire/SLI, and more SATA III connectivity than rival Intel's Z77 platform. What's not to like about all that? Let's dive in, take a close look at the Biostar TA990FXE board, overclock it and run a few pages worth of benchmarks through it's copper traces so you know what to expect.

Cooler Master Cosmos II Ultra Tower Chassis Review @ OCIA.net
     Thu, May 31 2012 | 2:31A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?Unless you?ve been living under a rock for the past several months, you?ve no doubt seen this chassis online or perhaps even at your local hardware retailer or LAN party (although I pity the person responsible for lugging this heavyweight anywhere outside of their house). Cooler Master showcased what they call the Ultra Tower at CES and it goes without saying that it was the most impressive computer case I saw during my week in Las Vegas. We`ve been anxious to get this chassis on the test bench to see if it lives up to the hype.?"

Binatone ReadMe Colour eReader
     Wed, May 30 2012 | 6:27P | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Binatone have been around for year upon years now, supplying house telephones, budget mobile phones, sat-navs, and even were the creator of one of the first ever game consoles. Now, Binatone have set their sights on the more updated and popular market in the technology industry, eReaders. Binatone’s latest addition to their eReader range is the Binatone ReadMe Colour, a full colour, manually button controlled 7” eReader. The question to ask is obviously: Can it compete with the other top of the market and favourite eReader, in price and performance?...

Today we test two 60GB SSDs in a RAID 0 array. Recently we tested one Mach Xtreme Technology MX-DS Fusion 60GB SATA3 SSD, which could not reach the top performance of the so far on ocinside.de tested SSDs. Now we will test two of these SSDs in RAID 0 at a SATA3 controller to compare the Solid State Drive Striping against the previously tested SSDs.

Corsair Force 3 120GB SSD Review
     Wed, May 30 2012 | 6:26P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today am looking at the Corsair Force Series 3 120GB SSD or Solid State Drive. If you haven’t got one yet then you might be willing to think about it after this review. Now the funny thing is that both the Corsair CSSD-F120GB3-BK and the Corsair CSSD-F120GB3A are the same but apart from the “A” having a newer firmware it’s price is lower as well. The CSSD-F120GB3-BK (which includes a drive bay bracket) goes for about a 122 euro’s here in The Netherlands whereas the Corsair CSSD-F120GB3A would set you back a mere 109 euro’s.

OCZ Vertex 4 256 GB and 512 GB Solid State Drives Review
     Wed, May 30 2012 | 6:26P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
About a month ago OCZ launched a completely new family of high-performance SSDs based around the proprietary Indilinx Everest 2 controller, and very recently they released new firmware version 1.4 for it, which was supposed to increase its speed even more. Will this make Vertex 4 the fastest consumer grade SSD with SATA 6 Gbps interface? Let’s find out!

Toshiba Excite 10 LE: The World's Thinnest 10" Tablet
     Wed, May 30 2012 | 6:25P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Toshiba is claiming to have the world's thinnest 10-inch tablet with its Excite 10 LE. This Android 4.0-powered tablet is indeed thin and lightweight, measuring 0.3 inches thick and weighing about 1.18 pounds. In addition to its thin design, the Excite 10 LE also offers a number of ports and expansion slots. With its size, ports, and good-looking magnesium alloy surface, the Excite 10 LE is certainly eye catching. Although thin and light are definitely key features for any tablet, we also demand performance. Toshiba understands this, and has included a 1.2 GHz Dual-Core Texas Instruments OMAP 4430 processor as well as 1GB of DDR2 RAM...

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.
