EVGA GeForce GTX 660 Ti SC review
     Fri, Aug 31 2012 | 9:14A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have another GeForce GTX 660 Ti review for you today as we`ll put the GeForce GTX 660 Ti from EVGA to the test, it`s their factory clocked version, the GeForce GTX 660 Ti SuperClocked (SC) version. So it isn`t hard to understand that the factory overclocked GeForce 660 Ti SKUs will run fairly close to the GeForce GTX 670 (reference clocked) and maybe Let`s have a peek. "

Test: What about your Intel Core 2 Quad? - Gaming Performance HD 7970 @ Ocaholic
     Thu, Aug 30 2012 | 4:10P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Here we go, a lot of people asked me to test an Intel Core 2 Quad under recent 3D games with an HD 7970 so here is what I did. Like for the Core2Duo test we published last week, I chose the most popular processor which in this case is the Intel C2Q Q6600. However this time we did not simply test it at stock frequency, we overclocked it to 3.0 GHz. Why 3.0 GHz only one would ask, well that way I was able to use exactly the same BIOS settings I did use for the C2D E8400. Just kidding, the main reason is that to run this processor fully stable at 3.0 GHz you don`t need any voltage increase and you can use a default bus speed which is 333 MHz FSB in this case. Enough talking, let`s see how the Core2Quad Q6600 clocked at 3 GHz will perform against today`s processors like the i7 3770K and FX-8150 under heavy 3D workloads conditions such as Benchmarks and recent Games with highest graphics settings possible at a resolution of 1920x1080. Let`s get it started!"

Plantronics BackBeat Go review – musical cord
     Thu, Aug 30 2012 | 4:03P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The sound quality of the Plantronics BackBeat Go isn't great. The highs and mids are good, but the lack of a low-end is poorer than even affordable wired headsets. That doesn't mean there isn't a market for these. The avid runner won't mind a slight sacrifice in sound quality for stable and light headphones. The Bluetooth implementation of the BackBeat Go, including the controls, is very good. Despite the limitations of the sound quality, we can recommend this headset for that particular target audience.

OS X 10.8 vs. Ubuntu Linux: A Battle With No Clear Winner
     Thu, Aug 30 2012 | 4:03P | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since Apple released OX X 10.8 Mountain Lion last month, there have been tests going on at Phoronix of this latest Apple operating system not only on the Retina MacBook Pro, but other Mac hardware as well. In this article is a comparison of OS X 10.8 versus Ubuntu Linux -- when trying out both Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and the latest Ubuntu 12.10 development version."

D-Link ShareCenter Quattro DNS-345
     Thu, Aug 30 2012 | 4:02P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Do you want a four-bay NAS without spending an arm and a leg? Do you need to be able to access it through the internet? Are you looking for some features such as DLNA but don't need the extensive (and expensive) array of features from QNAP and Synology? Then the D-Link DNS-345 ShareCenter Quattro is not a bad choice. It has a sturdy case, and is equipped with a display with a number of features. You do have to accept some peculiarities of this brand, such as how to configure the network ports and sharing folders. Since you can find it for as low as £199, for that kind of money this is a decent quality NAS.

Patriot Viper 3 DDR3-1866 & Viper 3 Intel Extreme
     Thu, Aug 30 2012 | 4:01P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new Patriot Viper 3 series offered a surprising amount of overclocking headroom, though despite this we found little room for improvement when it came to the memory timings. The timings of the Viper 3 series are fairly standard, as you will find most DDR3-1866 memory supports CL 9-10-9-27. The same can be said about the Viper 3 Intel Extreme Masters kit, as most DDR3-2133 memory works at CL 11-11-11-27 timings.

Posted by: STAFF
Lenovo continues to make strides in the slim desktop PC category with the IdeaCentre H520s. It combines a slim space-saving design with ease of use and a range of entertainment features. It features an Intel Core i5 CPU, 6GB of RAM, built-in wireless connectivity and a 1TB hard drive. The slim design does limit future expansion, but it comes with everything most users will need."

Sony Xperia P review: brighter than the sun
     Thu, Aug 30 2012 | 4:00P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Xperia P is an attractive phone. The sleek front, the transparent edge and the aluminium back side give it a very classy look. The performance is very reasonable, and while the dual-core processor can't be compared to current high-end hardware, it's more than good enough for normal use. The white subpixels make the display brighter than any other phone we've seen, and it's perfect for outdoor use, even in direct sunlight.

GALAXY GTX 660 Ti GC OC vs. OC GTX 670 & HD 7950

HArdOCP take the GALAXY GeForce GTX 660 Ti GC 3GB video card, overclock it to its maximum potential and compare it to an overclocked GTX 670 and overclocked HD 7950, both of which represent high-end overclocks. Will the GTX 660 Ti crumble, or will it stand up to an overclocked GTX 670 and HD 7950?

Adata XPG SX910 256GB SSD review: SandForce SSD with 256GB
     Thu, Aug 30 2012 | 12:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In terms of performance the Adata XPG SX910 256GB is mostly a dime-a-dozen SandForce-based SSD. We applaud Adata's decision to disable RAISE and thereby making the full 256 GB available instead of the usual 240 GB. You also get a complete package with the SX910, including a long warranty, 3.5-inch installation bracket and Acronis data migration software.

[Tech ARP] BIOS Option Of The Week - PCI Master Bus TimeOut Control
     Thu, Aug 30 2012 | 11:59A | BIOS | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meager beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition. Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend. This week, we will be taking a look at the *PCI Master Bus TimeOut Control * setting."

Sony KDL-55HX750 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Thu, Aug 30 2012 | 11:58A | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Sony KDL-55HX750 It isn`t nearly as sleek looking as its more expensive sibling, it uses more power, and its black levels and 3D performance fall short. On the plus side, this 55-inch LED-backlit model comes at a much lower price, and still delivers a crisp 2D picture with accurate colors."

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.
