CM Storm QuickFire Stealth Mechanical Keyboard Review
     Sun, Jun 23 2013 | 4:01P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the end, after using the CM Stealth for over a week, I`m still using it at my desk. Its predecessor, the Trigger, which held the longest term at my desk, is just waiting for its turn back at home. If you know me well, or at least have read a few keyboard reviews from me, then you know it is a pretty big deal for a numpad-less keyboard to still have a spot at my desk. I`m a big one to complain about not having my numbers, but something about this Stealthy board makes me happy. I love the look, especially without the red caps - just all blacked out. I do like how small it is; I can move it out of the way and use a much larger portion of my desk than I`m used to. It`s not Green switches - but knowing the option is out there keeps me happy and I am honestly considering buying one with Greens to be a full time unit at my desk."

Comparison List Update: All AMD FX Models @ Ocaholic
     Sun, Jun 23 2013 | 4:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over time CPU manufacturers like Intel and AMD release numerous processors and it is very likely to lose track of all the models out there. Furthermore it is difficult to find complete comparison tables where you find all CPUs and their features listed. Following you find such a list regarding AMD`s FX processors."

AMD A10-6800K and A4-4000 Richland APU Review
     Sun, Jun 23 2013 | 4:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Little over 6 months since launching Trinity on the desktop, AMD is updating their product lineup with a minor refresh. Codenamed Richland, these new APUs offer no substantial changes to either the CPU or GPU. Other than some clock speed improvements and better power management, everything is mostly the same. Leading the pack is the A10-6800K, which is stepping in to replace the A10-5800K. Both processors are identical with a few minor exceptions. The A10-6800K is clocked slightly higher and has an updated Radeon HD 8670D GPU. We're also taking a look at the bargain basement A4-4000 at the other end of the spectrum, which we suspect is going to be a slightly slower version of last year’s A4-5300.

SanDisk Extreme II SSD Review
     Sun, Jun 23 2013 | 12:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Odds are, if you've bought anything that uses flash memory in the last 20 years or so, you already own a small piece of SanDisk technology. The company has been a leader in flash memory storage since the late '80s and manufactures products used in everything from smartphones and portable media players to digital cameras and camcorders. With such a long history in the flash memory business, it's should be no surprise that SanDisk offers an array of solid state storage solutions for desktop and mobile PCs as well. In fact, SanDisk recently expanded their product stack with some new, high-performance SSDs that leverage the company's own NAND flash memory and Marvel's popular 88SSS9187 controller. The new drives are members of SanDisk's Extreme II family of products and target PC enthusiasts, gamers, and multi-media aficionados...

Dell's Haswell-Infused Alienware X51 R2 Small Form Factor Game PC Reviewed
     Sun, Jun 23 2013 | 12:00P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
...things aren't always what they appear to be, and so it is with Dell's Alienware X51 R2, a small form factor (SFF) gaming PC in console digs. It's shaped similar to Microsoft's Xbox 360 Slim, and though it's slightly larger than either a 360 or PlayStation 3, the X51 R2 would be right at home in a living room setting nestled next to a large screen TV. Indeed, it's adept at running Steam's Big Picture mode, and if your primary objective is to play games in the living room, go ahead and consider the X51 R2 a hybrid game console. We know from our autopsy that the X51 R2's internal organs are decidedly PC, just like the original X51 that Dell beamed into our lab last year. The R2 model we're dissecting here today is evolved with Haswell DNA, the codename for Intel's 4th Generation of Core processors. It also has 16GB of speedy DDR3 1600MHz memory, an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 graphics card, and a Micron RealSSD 256GB solid state drive (SSD) all working in tandem to, uh, serve man (or woman, as the case may be), only without a chilling plot twist. Here's a look at the full monty...

News: Intel removes modest free overclocking from standard Haswell CPUs
     Sun, Jun 23 2013 | 11:49A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge, standard Core i5 and i7 processors offer enough multiplier headroom for 400MHz overclocks. K-series chips are only required to push higher. Things are different for Haswell, which removes the multiplier allowance for standard CPUs, making multiplier-based overclocking exclusive to K-series processors."

Canon PowerShot Elph 130 IS Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Sun, Jun 23 2013 | 11:01A | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Canon PowerShot Elph 130 IS has an 8x optical zoom lens, a 16-megapixel CCD sensor and built-in Wi-Fi. It takes images of very good overall quality but has slow shooting speeds. High-definition video recording is also limited to only 720p resolution."

Canon PowerShot N Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Sun, Jun 23 2013 | 11:01A | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Canon PowerShot N has a square shape that is different from traditional point-and-shoots. It packs a unique control scheme that, while different, makes it awkward to hold and difficult to operate, and it can be set to apply a series of filters and crops to each photo you take-think of it like Instagram in your camera."

Posted by: STAFF
Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have a builders ReactorMod build. Here is what he had to say about it: Its a modded Chieftec BX-03 case. I wanted to make it look like its quite old and kinda shabby. I was thinking about this build for quite a long time, so I managed to collect some cool stuff that Ive found on a nearby scrap yard (e.g. switch or steel sheet that I used to make the radiator cover). I also used some spare parts that I had lying around."

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.
