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!"

Roccat Isku Illuminated Gaming Keyboard - BCCHardware
     Mon, Aug 13 2012 | 7:44P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ROCCAT ISKU Illuminated Gaming Keyboard isnt mechanical and it almost reminds me of my Microsoft Gaming Keyboard it terms of overall feel. The keys are built pretty flat on this unit - but not quite laptop flat. It seems to be responsive with its anti-ghosting end of things and it all goes toward making it quicker and offering a better response time for typing and gaming. . ."

Tt eSPORTS DRACCO Review @ Vortez
     Mon, Aug 13 2012 | 4:09P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The DRACCO headset is one such accessory. The vibrant colours of the Chao range are sure to raise a few eyebrows as canary yellow matched with sky blue or vivid pink, such as our sample, are colours not normally associated with the PC headset market. Herein lays the crux of the matter. The Tt Dracco is not aimed solely at the PC market. Instead, Thermaltake are looking to capture a wider audience with the Chao range, one which will appreciate the vibrant colour scheme yet enjoy all of the technological benefits Thermaltake have gained from the PC market sector."

MSI Barricade Case @ LanOC Reviews
     Mon, Aug 13 2012 | 3:06P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We recently had a chance to take a look at the MSI Ravager case, a case that is marketed towards people who want something a little flashing. Today we are going to look at another offering from MSI called the Barricade. This time around the Barricade has more subtle styling for those who may not be looking for a case for your youngest cousin or baby brother. It has been interesting to see MSI branch out a bit into different areas such as cases and SSDs. It should be interesting to see how this case compares to the previous one and how it stands on its own."

Radeon Gallium3D Has Made Much Progress In Two Years
     Mon, Aug 13 2012 | 2:43P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the upcoming release of Mesa 8.1, here`s a look at how the AMD Radeon R600 Gallium3D driver performance has changed over the past two years. This article has benchmarks of each major Mesa release going back to Mesa 7.9 of 2010 back when the R600 classic DRI driver was still in early development but the only viable choice for using accelerated open-source graphics on AMD Radeon HD 2000 series graphics cards and newer. For the most part, the open-source Radeon Linux graphics performance has advanced greatly in terms of OpenGL performance over the past two years, but it`s not without some outstanding regressions."

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.
