BIOSTAR NM70I-1037U Motherboard Review @ Madshrimps
     Sun, Nov 24 2013 | 3:07P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The BIOSTAR NM70I-1037U board features an improved CPU Ivy Bridge Celeron 1037 which is powerful enough to perform many tasks. In order to boost the 3D capabilities even further we can install a dedicated video card into the available PCI-Express x16 port so we would be even able to game with low to mainstream graphics levels."

Tt eSPORTS VOLOS MMORPG Gaming Mouse
     Sun, Nov 24 2013 | 12:45P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although i never was much into online MMO games i have tried most of them (out of curiosity mostly) and one of the things that was immediately clear to me from day one was that compared to normal FPS, platform, RTS, simulators and other game types online MMO games require a lot more buttons/keys both on the keyboard and on the mouse. That`s mainly because when playing online with dozens of people (or even with thousands in games like PlanetSide 2 one of the very few online games I do enjoy playing) you can`t afford to have the same speed/efficiency like you would with a single player game when faced against computer controlled opponents. Now back then it did take some time for gaming peripherals manufacturers to see that gap in the market and start producing gaming keyboards and mice with more buttons on them than usual but now several years later we see more and more such MMO oriented products get introduced quite frequently. The VOLOS MMORPG Gaming Mouse is the latest product designed and manufactured by our friends over at Tt eSPORTS and after roughly one week of testing today we can finally upload our opinion about it."

Phanteks Enthoo Primo Full Tower Case Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Sun, Nov 24 2013 | 11:21A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If there is one area of the PC world that is difficult to release something unique in, it would be cases. While it might seem that the possibilities are limitless, the truth is there are a very tight set of requirements to which builders must conform. These guidelines result in manufacturers churning out case after case that are essentially the same thing. Sure they may add this plastic bit here, or convert something else to be more tool less there, but at the core they are the same. This has had both positive and negative effects. The case mod scene comes from the desire for individuality in this sea of indistinguishable parts and has resulted in some impressive builds. However, many are left building their machines within the strict confines allowed by their cases. Fortunately for those of us looking for something unique and appropriate there are still some companies thinking outside the box. Today we will take a close look at the Phanteks Enthoo Primo full tower case and see if Phanteks is one of these companies."

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 780 Ti WindForce 3X OC review
     Sun, Nov 24 2013 | 10:17A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,Oh heck yeah, we review the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 780 Ti WindForce 3X OC, with a new 450W WindForce 3X cooler and a factory overclock this thing is fast ! NVIDIA unlocked the GPU completely meaning all 2880 Shader processors are available. That combined with increased core and memory clock frequencies and nice overclock potential will make this the top 699 USD flagship product to purchase for the Christmas holiday season. We test the product with the hottest games like Metro: Last light, Battlefield 4, Medal of Honor Warfighter, Hitman Absolution and many more."

AMD Radeon R9 270 review
     Sun, Nov 24 2013 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD has made the Radeon R9 270 very affordable. When you compare it to the GeForce GTX 660, the new AMD card is faster in the majority of benchmarks. The frame times are very similar. And if you are able to find an R9 270 for the official recommended price of £140, it's clear AMD offers the most value for your money. And if you also manage to find one with the Battlefield 4 coupon, then it's an amazing deal.

     Sun, Nov 24 2013 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Part of the problem for the retail cards appeared to be that fan speeds (measured by RPM rather than percentage) were different from card to card. This graph shows how (before today's driver) the press sample R9 290 card compared to the retail MSI R9 290 card we received today compared in fan RPM, out of the box. We also added in a "normalized" fan speed: increasing the fan speed percentage on the MSI card to 50% that closely matched what our press sample card was spinning at.

Corsair Graphite 230T review: great and affordable design
     Sun, Nov 24 2013 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the end, the only real distinguishing quality of the 230T is its attractive and unique design. The chassis cools well and is silent enough, and it's easy to assemble a system inside. However, there are better or more affordable alternatives on the market, including from Corsair. It's a good allround chassis, perfect for your first self-assembled system.

Sapphire Dual-X R9 270 Graphics Card Review @ HardwareHeaven.com Today we see AMD fill another gap in their current product stack with the launch of the R9 270 which sits between the R7 260X and R9 270. We have (one of) Sapphires R9 270s on our test bench today and will be looking at it against the GTX 660, the direct competition, in games like Battlefield 4 and Batman Arkham Origins."

     Sat, Nov 23 2013 | 4:34P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just as technology enjoys an ongoing evolution, OCZ Technology improves upon their design with each new solid state drive series.

In this article Benchmark Reviews tests the 240GB OCZ Vector 150 SSD, model VTR150-25SAT3-240G, against the leading competition."
