SilverStone ST45SF-G 450W SFX Form Factor PSU Review
     Tue, Nov 06 2012 | 11:28A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The SilverStone ST45SF-G is a good SFX form factor power supply. It has many of the features that you would expect from larger ATX enthusiast PSUs like a painted chassis and modular, sleeved cables. The power supply delivered very good voltage regulation with good efficiency and maintained relatively clean outputs across a wide range of loads. The ST45SF-G also comes with both EPS12V and PCI-E connectors, which typically aren`t found on a small SFX form factor PSU."

Lenovo IdeaTab S2110 Tablet Review
     Tue, Nov 06 2012 | 9:03A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although Nvidia's Tegra 3 has been taking tablets and smartphones by storm, there are other noteworthy mobile processors out there, including Qualcomm's dual-core, 1.5GHz 8060A. The Snapdragon S4 SoC appears in the Lenovo IdeaTab S2110, which is a 10.1-inch tablet that runs Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0. That's not a bad setup for a tablet, particularly if you're shopping on a tighter budget. Lenovo took a different approach with the IdeaTab S2110’s display than we usually see. Whereas other tablet makers are gunning for the highest resolution displays, Lenovo opted for a 10.1-inch screen with 1280 x 800 resolution and a 16:10 ratio. That means 1080p is out of the question, but the screen has upsides to consider, including 420-nit brightness built in IPS technology with 178-degree viewing angles...

Warfighter Tested, Benchmarked
     Tue, Nov 06 2012 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Medal of Honor: Warfighter calls for no less than a 3GHz quad-core processor paired with a GeForce GTX 560 or Radeon HD 6950. Given those upper-end requirements, we expect the title to be fairly demanding with its visuals maxed out, and we'll be putting a ton of past and present-gen cards through their paces. It's worth noting that unlike 2010's Medal of Honor which used separate engines for single player and multiplayer, Warfighter uses DICE's Frostbite 2 engine -- the same software that powers Battlefield 3. We'll be testing 29 DirectX 11 graphics card configurations from AMD and Nvidia across all price ranges with their respective latest beta drivers that claim to improve performance.

Windows media centre is gone and no more support for Office 2003

[Tech ARP] Satellite TV Going Bonkers? Blame Your DECT Phone!
     Tue, Nov 06 2012 | 8:46A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are having problems watching certain channels on your satellite TV, don`t blame your service provider just yet. It is very possible that the culprit is actually the DECT (Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications) phone you recently installed. This is actually an old problem, but one that not many people realize until they install a DECT phone, or subscribe to a satellite TV service, or both. In this article, we are going to explain to you why DECT phones interfere with satellite TV services, how to determine if they are the cause, and how to fix the problem. If you find this guide useful, be sure to share it with your family and friends so they won`t get frustated at their satellite TV provider for the wrong reason. We all have plenty of other reasons to complain to them about anyway!"

Samsung Galaxy Note 2 (16GB Sprint) Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Tue, Nov 06 2012 | 8:29A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With a fast quad-core processor, a big, gorgeous display, and features galore, the Samsung Galaxy Note II delivers everything a huge-screen smartphone should, but Sprint really needs to build out its LTE network. If you think other phones are too small, and prefer something big enough to double as a miniature tablet that (barely) fits in your pocket, the Galaxy Note II reigns supreme."

Corsair Obsidian Series 550D Case Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Tue, Nov 06 2012 | 8:29A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few years ago when I sat at Corsairs press conference where they announced they were going to be making more than just memory I was a little skeptical. Many companies did the same thing, just rebranding OEM products. Corsair was different, all of their products were original and they said they wanted to be in the top 3 of each product category. They definitely surprised many people and have some of the best cases, cooling solutions and gaming gear. Today I am taking a look at the 550D Mid Tower Case that is part of Corsairs Obsidian Series. The 550D is made for noise reduction and sound isolation. It features front and side panels that are fully lined with sound-damping material, top and side panels that have their own sound-insulated vent covers, three included 120mm cooling fans, USB 3.0 support and much more. Read on as we check out the Obsidian Series 550D case from Corsair!"

Thermaltake Overseer RX-I Chassis @ Bjorn3D
     Tue, Nov 06 2012 | 8:07A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to picking a great gaming chassis, its not always about looks. Aesthetics can be a major part of your decision making, but there is a lot more to consider, including great air circulation, plenty of cable management holes, the absence of low quality parts, and features that other chassis may not offer. Check out what the Thermaltake Overseer RX-I can offer you."

This card - as it`s name stand for - is powered by MSI`s Twin Forzr III cooler and features a factory overclocking. Let`s see what she can do!"
