Mushkin Chronos Deluxe 240GB Solid
     Wed, Nov 14 2012 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"It has been a really long time since we have reviewed a product from Mushkin. Mushkin has mainly been known for memory products, but like most memory companies have moved into the storage realm with solid state drives. Today we are taking a look at their top tier SATA 6GB/s Chronos Deluxe Drive. The big difference between this drive and the normal Chronos is that it uses premium Toshiba toggle mode NAND memory and the Chronos uses asynchronous NAND memory. This is the new 7mm drive as well, so you will be able to use it as an upgrade for thin devices like your Ultrabook. Read on as we take a look at the Mushkin Chronos Deluxe 240GB Solid State Drive!"

Review: ADATA XPG Xtreme Series 2x8GB DDR3-2133MHz CL10 @ Ocaholic
     Wed, Nov 14 2012 | 4:02A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It`s been quite some time since out last memory review. Today we are having a look at one 16 GB dual channel kit from ADATA. This kit belongs to their XPG Xtreme Series and offers large capacity without cutting performance. Running at DDR3-2133 MHz, it isn`t the fastest high capacity kit around. But ADATA is known for their quality better than oustanding high speed that you can`t reach, so let`s see what they came up with!"

Silverstone Strider Gold ST55F-G Power Supply Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Tue, Nov 13 2012 | 11:56P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Silverstone Strider Gold ST55F-G is fully modular, including all MB and PCIe connections. Connections for one 6+2 pin and one 6 pin PCIe, eight SATA, three 4-pin molex and one floppy connector fit the expansion needs for almost any single GPU system. MB, 8-pin and PCIe connectors are a generous 550mm, while SATA and 4-pin connectors are slightly shorter at 500mm with all cables sleeved in black mesh. The depth of the ST55F-G comes in at a smaller than standard 120mm, making it a perfect choice for smaller form factor systems. A 120mm silent fan provides ample cooling for the ST55F-G. To keep things running safely, Silverstone has built seven way protection into the ST55F-G, including No Load Protection, which is a step rarely seen taken. Naturally, with 80 PLUS Gold Certification, the ST55F-G is going to provide its power with great efficiency"

Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H-WiFi Review
     Tue, Nov 13 2012 | 9:56P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Now when it came to overclocking, the Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H-WiFi will allow your processor and memory to scale almost effortlessly when manually tweaking the settings. Up to the limits of your hardware at least. I was able to pull a 1.2GHz overclock out of the CPU and run the 2133MHz rated memory at up to 2400MHz by adjusting the timings and tweaking the voltages a bit for stability. Manually tuning in the 3D BIOS is not the only avenue to increase the performance of your installed hardware. Using Easy Tune 6 you can overclock from within the operating system to see what works and what does not. The utility does not come by the Easy Tune name just the sake of calling it something. Using the Auto Tuning feature of the Tuner section of ET6 you can choose a few preset options to overclock your hardware from a mild 4.18GHz using a 102MHz bclock to a more aggressive 4.68GHz using a 104MHz bclock."

ASUS SABERTOOTH
     Tue, Nov 13 2012 | 12:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Recently, after several months of saving, I bought an ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0 Motherboard and an AMD FX-8350 Vishera CPU to go with it. As you probably would imagine if you are reading this, I felt like a kid on Christmas morning and was eager to get to using my new hardware. The problem is that (at this moment) there is not any (official) way to use a Piledriver CPU with this motherboard. You heard right. Not only does ASUS' latest motherboard the SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0, which features AMD's newest enthusiast chipset, not support this CPU out of the box there is currently not even a BIOS available from ASUS to support it, either."

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 690s
     Tue, Nov 13 2012 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Pricing aside, the ORIGIN Genesis is the fastest and most impressive PC we have tested at PC Perspective and we have seen our fair share of systems in our labs. If you want the ULTIMATE gaming experience then this machine will power it though I recommend (almost require) you invest in three monitors for a Surround experience if you are already shelling out $5000+ for a computer."

Intel Solid State Drive 335 Series SSD Review
     Tue, Nov 13 2012 | 12:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Intel SSD 335 is the company’s first solid state drive to ship with NAND flash memory produced using a 20nm process. Intel claims the drive “uses the smallest, most efficient multi-level cell NAND flash on the market”. The flash memory used on the Intel SSD 335 was jointly developed my Intel’s and Micron’s IM Flash Technologies (IMFT) and was announced last April, but is now ready for prime time in a drive targeting the sweet spot of the enthusiast and DIY market...

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.
