Posted by: STAFF
The Asus PB278Q 27-inch HD monitor utilizes the relatively new PLS panel technology which results in excellent color quality and wide viewing angles. While it is quite pricy and has no automatic pivot function, it`s still a decent monitor that provides a good quality image."

Crucial Ballistix Tactical Low Profile DDR3-1600 16GB Memory Kit Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Tue, Nov 20 2012 | 8:29A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to performance memory there are quite a few choices. The one thing you always want to consider is the actual height of the modules. Many aftermarket CPU coolers actually may cover the memory slots on your motherboard. This means you could be limited to what memory you can use. This has actually been a problem for quite a while now. The only real solution was to go with a watercooling setup, but many people do not want to deal with that. Crucial has finally solved the problem by releasing Low Profile versions of both their Ballistix Tactical and Ballistix Sport memory. Today we are taking a look at the Ballistix Tactical LP memory, more specifically the BLT2K8G3D1608ET3LX0 kit. It is a 16GB kit running at 1600MHz with timings of 8-8-8-24 at 1.35v. Lets take a look!"

     Tue, Nov 20 2012 | 7:28A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are so many CPU models that it has become quite impossible to keep up with the different models or even remember their specifications. Therefore, we decided to compile this guide to provide an easy reference for those who are interested in comparing the specifications of the various desktop CPUs in the market, as well as those already obsolescent or obsolete. Currently covering *872 desktop CPUs*, this comprehensive comparison will allow you to easily compare *up to 19 different specifications* for each and every CPU. Here`s the latest update in Revision 12.7 : *- Added the Intel Core i7-3970X Extreme Edition 6-core processor. - Added the Intel Pentium G2120 dual-core processor. - Added the Intel Pentium G2100T dual-core processor. - Added the Intel Pentium G645 dual-core processor. - Added the Intel Pentium G645T dual-core processor. - Added the Intel Celeron G555 dual-core processor. - Added the Intel Celeron G550T dual-core processor. - Added the Intel Celeron G465 dual-core processor.*"

Silicon Power Firma F80 32GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Review
     Tue, Nov 20 2012 | 6:13A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Well it`s finally official, Chris Roberts and his team managed to gather over $6.000.000 for his next state of the art space-simulator called Squadron 42/Star Citizen via crowd-funding so all that`s left is to see which of our favorite WC (Wing Commander) actor or actors will come back to give their voice to the game (Mark Hamill, Malcolm MacDowell or Tom Wilson? Hopefully all three) and to wait patiently for a full year until the launch of the first Alpha test version (easier said than done). In any case until that day comes we will follow our regular routine (because let`s face it, when that day comes we may see several update blackouts around here) and so today we are taking an in-depth look at the latest (and quite small) Firma F80 32GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive by Silicon Power."

Dell XPS One 27 All-in-One System Review: Big Screen One Wire
     Mon, Nov 19 2012 | 4:47P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The overall design of the XPS 27 is very reminiscent of the Apple 27 products that we have seen in the past. Dell tweaks a few of the characteristics so that it easy to distinguish itself from the Apple product. I personally find it an attractive and wholly functional unit, but it of course lacks any kind of upgrade ability. As the years go by, users could find that the 3D performance is simply not enough to keep up with even casual games that do require 3D acceleration of some kind. That is a few years down the road, but when dealing with a monitor that features the 2560x1440 resolution it is certainly a consideration."

[Tech ARP] BIOS Option Of The Week - ISA Enable Bit
     Mon, Nov 19 2012 | 4:07P | 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 *ISA Enable Bit* setting."

[Tech ARP] Thomson / Technicolor TG784n Port Forwarding Guide Rev. 2.0
     Mon, Nov 19 2012 | 4:07P | Beginners Guides | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Port forwarding is important if you have applications or games that require an unobstructed connection from a computer on your local network to a remote service or server. What it basically does is open a port in your firewall and direct all traffic that is sent to that port to a specific computer on your network. Think of it as opening a secret entrance in your city wall and then routing all traffic that goes through it to a specific house. If you do not set up port forwarding for your application, it may not be able to connect to the service or you may have to live with reduced performance. This port forwarding guide is for those who are using the *older Thomson TG784n* router, or the *newer Technicolor TG784n v3* router. Although the example uses the latest Technicolor TG784n v3 router, the steps are the same for the older Thomson TG784n router. Let`s get right down to it! *In this update, we made various improvements and corrections to the guide. We also added some information on the default MAC address selection.*"
