Valve's SteamOS and AMD's Mantle API
     Fri, Oct 11 2013 | 1:55P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Valve's SteamOS and AMD's Mantle API have the potential to do great things for PC gaming. However, they also threaten to fragment the platform at a critical time, when next-gen consoles are about to reduce the PC's performance and image quality lead by a long shot.

OZONE Gaming Worldwide Joint Giveaway
     Fri, Oct 11 2013 | 1:41P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A good friend of mine always says that game companies always wait until the worst time of the year to release games and what worse time than when the schools get re-opened after the summer holidays? Well it seems to be true since during the last month weve seen quite a few of the most anticipated game titles hit the market including Shadow Warrior, Flashback, Alien Rage, NBA 2k14 and of course the F1 2013. Because of this we joined hands with our good friends from OZONE Gaming to offer not one but a total of 4 great prizes for 3 very lucky winners."

Posted by: STAFF
The HAWK series from MSI is known to have seen its ups and downs. With the GeForce GTX 760 HAWK, MSI hope to repair the series` reputation going all out. On paper the HAWK looks tasty and seems to be beefed up almost to the level of a Lightning. Lets see what`s up in the real world!"

Sony VAIO Pro 13 Touch Ultrabook Review Pre-Configured SATA PCIe SSD Far From Ideal
     Fri, Oct 11 2013 | 12:52P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Something not many people are aware of is that there are actually two physically different Sony VAIO Pro 13 ultrabook configurations being distributed, those that have been constructed for pre-configured sales and those for custom build. Pre-configured configurations may use a SATA based PCIe SSD, while all custom builds use a much higher performing native PCIe SSD. We were a bit confused as Sony was clearly advertising PCIe solid state drive in its configurations worldwide, and even stating that the PCIe booted-up faster, launched apps at lightning speeds and enjoy snappier overall performance capabilities versus a traditional mSATA SSD drive In the case of pre-configured SATA PCIe SSD systems, this marketing is incorrect."

ASRock Z87 Extreme4 Intel LGA 1150 motherboard
     Fri, Oct 11 2013 | 12:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we test the new ASRock Z87 Extreme4 Intel LGA 1150 motherboard at OCinside.de. It is based on the Intel Z87 chipset and offers a high-quality solution for current 1150-pin Haswell processors like the Intel Core i7-4770K, Intel Core i5-4570 or the Intel Core i5-4670K, which we have used to test and overclock this motherboard. Surely only a few motherboards can compete with the recently tested ASRock Z87M OC Formula when overclocking, but the basic equipment of the ASRock Extreme series sets definitely new standards. The ASRock Z87 Extreme4 offers for example a total of five PCI Express slots, up to nine USB3.0 ports, eight SATA3 ports, eSATA3, DisplayPort, 15-pin D-Sub, DVI-D, HDMI out, HDMI in and purity sound with digital sound output over an optical S/PDIF output. We may be curious to see all results of the ASRock Z87 Extreme4 in the following review.

Patriot Viper III 2400MHz Black Mamba
     Fri, Oct 11 2013 | 11:45A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Patriot has been in the market for a long time but it is the lesser known little brother in the memory game. However this has not kept them from making some very cool memory models among other devices such as USB flash drives, mobile wireless storage and even a Android powered set top box and im sure many more things I cannot even think of right now. But without getting too crazy off topic what we are looking at today is their model from the Viper III series labeled Black Mamba which is very nice looking sticks with aggressive heatspreaders and a very aggressive speed/timing configuration. Being named Black Mamba I could only assume means to assert the aggressive and deadly power these sticks hold within."

Cooler Master Cosmos SE Full Tower Case Review @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Oct 11 2013 | 10:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cooler Master has been known for making some great computer hardware, and cases are no exception. Back in 2007, Cooler Master came out with the first iteration of the Cosmos case, named the Cosmos 1000. This case was well received by enthusiasts, and even I myself purchased one because I loved the design, features, and size. Over time, Cooler Master came out with different versions to add new features or even just minor updates to the original Cosmos 1000 case under the Cosmos 1010 name. Today we?re going to take a look at another version of the Cosmos, the freshly available Cosmos SE. The Cosmos SE is significantly smaller than its siblings, so let?s take a look and see what the Cosmos SE has to offer inside a smaller package!"

Rosewill RHMS-13002 Dual Swing Arm Monitor Mount Review
     Fri, Oct 11 2013 | 9:03A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are in the hunt for a 24? or below dual monitor desktop mount you are in luck as they have always been pretty easy to find. Such has not been the case for dual 27? monitors where, although one or two have been available, there has always been concerns with respect to appearance or construction, much less price if you approached high end solutions. Rosewill has changed all that with their new RHMS-13002 Dual Swing Arm Monitor mount and just in time for the arrival of our two Korean 2560×1440 QNIX display monitors which we will have a separate review up for very shortly.

OCZ Vertex 450 256GB SSD @ Custom PC Review
     Fri, Oct 11 2013 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"This of course leads us OCZ’s latest offering, the OCZ Vertex 450, which we’ll be reviewing today. The OCZ Vertex 450 is the newest SSD in OCZ’s lineup and for the most part is an update of sorts to the already successful Vertex 4. On the controller side, OCZ has moved away from their short lived time with the Marvell hardware based Indilinx Everest 2 controller in favor of the completely in house designed Indilinx Barefoot 3 controller..."

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.
