Max Keyboard Nighthawk X8
     Wed, May 30 2012 | 12:03P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“A fully backlit mechanical keyboard that sports a fabulously minimalist design and caters to discerning consumers who want something unique, the Max Keyboard Nighthawk X8 is not your average mechanical board. Are you looking for plenty of standalone macro keys? Pffft, try fully integrated ones here. Is 6-Key Rollover not good enough for you, maybe you want 20KRO? Bah, that's for chumps. Try FULL NKRO on the X8. While it may not look like anything particularly groundbreaking at first glance, there's something special lurking here. Let's delve a bit deeper and see if the X8 can stand out in a widening field of mechanical keyboards.”

MSI Radeon HD 7850 Power Edition OC review
     Wed, May 30 2012 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the MSI Radeon HD 7850 Power Edition OC with that all new TwinFrozr IV cooler. The updated cooler has much better looks and MSI’s proprietary TwinFrozr IV cooling system that packs 8mm thick nickel-plated copper heatpipes to convey heat drawn directly from the GPU to a large aluminum fin array, ventilated by two 80 mm fans. These fans are based on the new dust removal technology, which means that the 1st 30- seconds they'll spin backwards in an attempt to remove any residual dust that can build up over time.

IOSafe Rugged Portable @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, May 30 2012 | 8:45A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So you do the smart thing, you backup your data from your laptop and your home PC to an external or network drive and go on with life feeling confident that you have gone well and above what most people do. For the most part, you did. What about when you?re traveling, have you seen how much abuse a device can take when on the go? For some people, and I know I?m one of them, some of the data you carry with you while traveling is more important than the laptop or device that you actually carry it on. In that situation you need a way to not have to worry about your data, no matter the situation, and to have a guarantee to back it up as well. The folks over at IOSafe focus specifically on this crowd. Not only do they offer products that are according to them build to handle almost anything, but they back it up with data recovery if something does happen. Today we are going to take a look at that Rugged Portable hard drive to see what all of the fuss is about, without any more buildup, let?s dig in."

Today, we get a chance to look at Silverstone`s latest power supply. The power supply is the Strider Gold Evolution which comes in various wattages which would include: 750W, 850W, 1000W and 1200W. The model we were sent was the 850W unit which is plenty large enough for most. But for those that do need than Silverstone has you covered. The entire series is modular which I know everyone will love and very quiet."

450mbps routers reviewed: 14 of the fastest models
     Tue, May 29 2012 | 4:02P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While the Consumer Electronics Show in January of this year featured demonstrations of the next generation 802.11ac technology, we are still in the midst of a transition within the current 802.11n standard. After the 300 Mbps and 150 Mbps versions, manufacturers are now promoting '450N' models which promise a theoretical throughput of 450 Mbps. Obviously there is an element of marketing involved here, but even so it will be interesting to see how these product perform when compared to their elder 300N brethren. In order to get a good overview, we tried to get all currently available 450 Mbps routers into our lab to put these through our usual rigorous tests.

Posted by: STAFF
The product we have on review today is a continuation of this trend and ethos – the Kinzu V2 Pro Edition. Seasoned Vortez readers may recall back to the Steelseries Kinzu review posted way back in Jan 10, and that it was deemed worthy of the coveted Vortez Gold Award thanks to its simple, quality design and attractive price. A lot could have changed in 2 years, but the Kinzu V2 is aptly named as it sticks true to its roots. Read on to see why.

Roccat Isku Gaming Keyboard
     Tue, May 29 2012 | 4:00P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When was the last time you ventured to your local PC store to take a look at the keyboards they have to offer? I have and it is an adventure within itself. The shelves were filled with numerous choices there had to be at least forty keyboards to decide from. Basic, media, wireless, wired, mini, mechanical and gaming keyboard were part of the selection. Chances are many of you enter the store with what you want already in mind especially when it comes to gaming keyboards. And if your mind is open and want to take a look at a really killer keyboard you may want to walk yourself over to the Roccat Isku. You may walk out with one.

DIY Guide: Fujitsu Lifebook P770 Memory Upgrade
     Tue, May 29 2012 | 2:21P | Beginners Guides | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

There comes a point in every notebooks' lifespan when it's time to upgrade the memory. However, the more compact the notebook, the more challenging it becomes for manufacturers to place every expansion slot on the bottom of computer where they are easily accessible. With sub-notebooks in particular, this leads to expansion ports getting tucked away in areas the end user is never meant to see...

With a little guidance from a Service Manual and equal measure of care, it's possible to perform notebook surgery and upgrade, the inaccessible!

Thermaltake Frio Advanced Heatsink Review on Frostytech.com
     Tue, May 29 2012 | 2:19P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

Thermaltake's Frio Advanced heatsink stands 161mm tall and weighs upwards of 954 grams, it is rated to heat loads of 230 Watts by the manufacturer. The heatsink ships with two 130mm PWM fans arranged in a push-pull configuration that rotate at 2000-800RPM. Behind each fan shroud is a 110mm tall aluminum fin tower connected by five U-shaped, 6mm diameter copper heatpipes which are exposed at the base.

Phanteks PH-TC14PE Heatsink Review
     Tue, May 29 2012 | 2:18P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

The Phanteks PH-TC14PE itself is a pretty standard dual tower, five-8mm-heatpipe-packing heatsink that retails for about $90 bucks. It stands 168mm tall and has a wide 144x161mm footprint that may have clearance issues on some motherboards where RAM slots and VRM heatsinks are too tall, too near the CPU socket. The cooler weighs upwards of 1250 grams and ships with two 140mm PWM fans arranged in a push-pull configuration. The fans spin at 1200-900RPM and are anywhere from moderately audible to pretty quiet. On the plus side, the dual-fan set up does make this heatsink a good lower noise thermal solution, as you'll shortly see.

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
