Asrock X79 Extreme11
     Tue, Aug 14 2012 | 9:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Those that require the ability to create a RAID array with up to eight 6Gb/s drives along with extreme multi-GPU setups will find the X79 Extreme11 actually fairs rather well in terms of value. For those that do not require these features the X79 Extreme11 is obviously overkill and Asrockā€™s less extreme motherboards will fit the bill better, and with the X79 Extreme9, 7, 6, 4 and 3 to choose from, all options are covered.

Lenovo IdeaPad U410 review: affordable and powerful Ultrabook
     Tue, Aug 14 2012 | 9:00A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For the price you get a pretty powerful and well-equipped Ultrabook. Most brands offer a Core i5 at this level, but Lenovo includes an energy-efficient Core i7 and 8 GB memory. And instead of the typical 500 GB hard drive you get a 1 TB version and even a dedicated graphics card by Nvidia. While it's just the GeForce 610, it's still a nice addition.

     Tue, Aug 14 2012 | 8:59A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Storm Stryker full tower chassis is large enough to handle just about any type of computer components we wish to use with it. It is also solidly built and portable, which is where having a chassis that is solidly built really starts to shine. "

Genius G-Shot HD575T Digital Camcorder Review @ TechwareLabs
     Tue, Aug 14 2012 | 8:41A | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In this technology rich world we live in, there is no shortage of ways to capture those spontaneous or special moments in your life. The reality is that many of us carry devices (smartphones, tablets, etc) capable of capturing still pictures and motion video at some level. Where these devices excel in being extremely portable, the quality, feature, and functionality of capturing these moments in your life is generally limited due to their inherent small form factor. So, the video camera market is still very much alive and kicking!"

Posted by: STAFF

You get all of this for under $70! Will this case be one of your choices for your next build? Read on to find out!"

MSI Radeon HD 7770 Power Edition review
     Tue, Aug 14 2012 | 4:04A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the MSI Radeon HD 7770 Power Edition. MSI recently released an updated Radeon HD 7770 1GHz edition with their own 1.1 GHz custom model. They use their own custom 4-layer PCB and equipped it with a dual cooling solution. I say dual here as you get an extra fan that you can pop onto the card for extra cooling. MSI also opened up the voltages for Aux, GPU and memory making the card very tweakable. Read the article here"

Posted by: STAFF
MDSSD and Phison have a new firmware ready for the S8 SATA III controller. Under normal circumstances we`d expect a small performance increase, but when the promise of a 4x increase was made, we knew we had to see for ourselves."

G-Cube iHL-500BK Luxury Dual-Mode Headset @ Benchmark Reviews
     Tue, Aug 14 2012 | 12:00A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the world of computer audio, G-CUBE is not one of those names that comes up often. There`s a valid reason for this: The company is still at the stage where it is trying to establish a place for itself amongst the crowd of contenders in this hotly-contested arena. Their new Luxy 500 Dynamic HiFi Headset (model number iHL-500BK) is the company`s latest entry into the market of sub-$100.00 headsets. Benchmark Reviews examines the Luxy 500 Dynamic HiFi Headset and tests it through a wide variety of usage scenarios. Read on to see how the iHL-500BK stacks up against everything we throw at it."

Lepa 120mm Vortex/Casino/Chopper Fan Review @Hi Tech Legion
     Mon, Aug 13 2012 | 10:28P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Lepa Vortex 120mm fan, Casino 120mm fan, and Chopper 120mm fan are designed to maximize cooling while maintaining silent operation. The Vortex is designed without LED lighting for those who want a simple fan. The Casino 120mm fan has 18 blue LEDs installed in it creating a spiral lighting effect with various modes including the ability to turn off the LEDs. The Chopper is a low speed fixed RPM fan that has 2 LEDs (in blue or red depending on model) to create a dynamic cycling lighting effect./"

REVIEW: Roccat Kone[+] and ISKU Keyboard @ PureOverclock
     Mon, Aug 13 2012 | 9:52P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Some things just go well together. Peanut butter and jam, Ferrari and beautiful women, and a keyboard and mouse. Of those examples, there`s one that tops the rest, but suffice it to say that at least in the computer realm, the keyboard and mouse are likely the most critical combinations possible for just about everyone using a desktop. The trick, then, is to not only find both a mouse and keyboard that work well for you, but ideally a pair that work well together. That can be a daunting task, with literally hundreds of these products on the market. And certainly for the gaming enthusiast crowd, who tend to be a particular and vocal bunch, the mouse and keyboard have to bring something interesting and compelling to the mix. Can the sleek styling and innovative features live up to gamers` performance expectations?"

ASUS Maximus V GENE @ PureOverclock
     Mon, Aug 13 2012 | 9:46P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS introduced their Z77 motherboards with the P8 series and we have to say, the P8Z77-V Deluxe and Pro we reviewed, are another example of ASUS staying on top of the industry. These boards have some of the most creative and innovative features we have seen in some time. At that time, ASUS did not have any Republic of Gamer (ROG) motherboards ready to rock for the enthusiasts. But, just when you thought things were cooling off, ASUS heats things back up with the Z77 Maximus series. The Maximus series is available in the Gene, Formula and Extreme varieties, giving ASUS a good / better / best product lineup of choices for the gaming enthusiast. Will it live up to The Republic of Gamers tradition? Let`s dive in and see. Click through for the full review."

[Affiliates News] Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H Motherboard Review @ APH Networks
     Mon, Aug 13 2012 | 7:45P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
According to Wikipedia, social determinants of health are the economic and social conditions - and their distribution among the population - that influence individual and group differences in health status. It probably is not terribly surprising to you if I said people in developed countries have dramatically longer life expectancy than those who live in developing nations, simply because the latter lack even the basic necessities for living, such as clean water and food. But for those who live in developed countries such as Canada and the United States, what determinants do we include when we benchmark these nations against each other? Many researchers propose factors such as income, housing, and employment. While this is nice and agreeable, in my personal opinion, they are all missing one very important aspect. If anyone wants to be healthy, what they truly need is a fast computer that starts every time and never crashes. At the end of the day, let`s admit it: We have all screamed and yelled when your computer crashes at just the wrong time, or at the very least, become frustrated at unbearably slow PCs. All these will cost a few years of your life in the long run. So for health related reasons... I think it is time for you to upgrade your desktop, haha. After all, you only live once. To give you a hand, what we have here at APH Networks this morning is a mainstream performance motherboard from Gigabyte. Promising excellent performance, top notch stability, and rock solid reliability that won`t break the bank, will the GA-Z77X-UD3H fit the bill? Read on to find out!"

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.
