Intel i7 4770K Overclocking validations @ Ocaholic
     Mon, May 20 2013 | 9:11A | Overclocking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
New forum member Validator found some new interesting CPU-Z validations showing Intel`s Core i7 4770K overclocked at 4.8 GHz and 5.0 GHz with less than 1.0v (using latest CPU-Z version so voltage reading should be accurate). There is also one validation that shows 32GB of memory working at DDR3-2800 MHz. PS: We have double checked those screenshots by finding the validation links ourselves and they are real, no photoshop."

TRITTON XBOX 360 Detonator Stereo Headset Review
     Sun, May 19 2013 | 5:17P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although for the past 7 years or so i have used countless stereo, virtual surround and true surround headsets i have to confess that nothing beats an dedicated 5.1/6.1/7.1 surround sound set in terms of positioning audio, clarity, volume levels and comfort especially if you plan on spending many hours in front of the screen. Still i can`t deny that headsets can be extremely useful especially when you are using it with multiplayer games (mainly because it`s easier to speak with your teammates) or you just don`t want to intrude on the privacy of those around you and vice versa. I guess that`s also why most people i know own headsets that they use with their computers, however the same does not apply for people with gaming consoles such as the Microsoft XBOX 360 mainly because there aren`t as many fully compatible headsets out in the market which is also why today we will be taking a look at the Detonator Stereo Headset by TRITTON."

Cooler Master N200 Mini-Tower Case Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Sun, May 19 2013 | 11:53A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Cooler Master N200 case is a mini-tower budget solution that supports high-end component installation. The CM N200 can house a micro-ATX or a mini-ATX motherboard, CPU coolers up to 160mm tall and video cards up to 355mm long. The front intake has room for a pair of 120mm fans or a 240mm radiator with enough room for push pull configurations due to the movable HDD cage. Two versions of the Cooler Master N200 is available, a basic version with a pair of USB 2.0 ports and a single USB 3.0 port as well as an Advanced version with two USB 3.0 ports and a single USB 2.0 port in the front panel. The left side-panel of the N200 has a mounting area for a 120mm fan but there is a windowed side-panel version that lacks this feature. Out of the box, the Cooler master N200 is equipped with a pair of 120mm fans, one located in the front intake and one located in the rear exhaust. An optional 120mm or 140mm fan can be installed at the top of the CM N200 for additional exhaust as well."

ROCCAT Roundup: Mice Mousepad and Bungee
     Sun, May 19 2013 | 9:26A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ROCCAT Kone XTD was a bit of a flash back to the previous ROCCAT Kone and Kone[+], with near identical looks and features. Its added weight kit and 4-LED lighting scheme allowed for a rather personalized setup. Unfortunately the software was the ultimate fail in both the XTD and Pure mice. The installer crashing while it installs and crashing while writing to the mouse are two major no-no`s. That`s the last thing I need to happen when I`m just trying to customize my mouse. I could deal without the flashy imagery as long as the mouse works and the settings I want to change actually send to the mouse. Despite my anger with the software, I ultimately enjoyed the XTD."

Enermax TriAthlor 550W Power Supply Review
     Sun, May 19 2013 | 9:11A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Enermax TriAthlor 550W power supply delivers good voltage regulation with clean DC outputs (low AC ripple) and is housed in a compact chassis that is only 140mm (5.5) deep. The TriAthlor 550W power supply is eco-friendly by meeting the new ErP Lot 6 standby efficiency criteria but achieves only 80Plus Bronze level efficiency under load. Under light to medium loads the power supply is quiet, but at the higher loads fan noise becomes noticeable."

ECS GeForce GT 640 Review
     Sun, May 19 2013 | 8:55A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
To overclock the ECS GT 640 we will be using the EVGA Precision overclocking tool. The GT 640 proved to be a decent overclocker, being able to be pushed from an already non-reference frequency of 930MHz to 1101MHz. We will see, however, in the upcoming tests that the effect of this overclock is somewhat hampered by the cut down shader count, the use of slower DDR3, and a 128-bit bus. This proved to be all the frequency that the GT 640 had in it with additional voltage having no effect in the pursuit of a higher overclock."
