OCZ Vertex 4 with Firmware 1.4 @ Ocaholic
     Sun, Jun 17 2012 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since OCZ launched their latest Vertex 4 several weeks have passed. Meanwhile they`ve released new revision of their firmware. According to the manufacturer version 1.4 should be able to give a 20 percent improvement on sequential writes with a 256 Vertex 4. We`re really curious if there really is such a significant improvement."

Origin EON17-S Gaming Notebook Review: Opening A Can Of RAID
     Sun, Jun 17 2012 | 9:02A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Origin EON17-S is, from a performance standpoint, one hell of a piece of kit. What sets the laptop apart is not the Extreme Edition processor or even the GTX 675M (which is fast, but also obtainable elsewhere). No, the real honors should be given to the pair of Corsair hard drives. Its incredible how quickly software loads on this machine. Of course, most other companies will let you configure solid state drives in RAID 0, as well. But they usually dont let you replace the optical drive with a mechanical hard drive or offer a third hard drive option. Thats where the EON17-S stands out. You can enjoy insane speeds and still have plenty of room for your files."

CM Storm Trigger Review @ Vortez
     Sat, Jun 16 2012 | 11:06A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Mechanical keyboards have evolved from subtle plain black affairs with few features other than mechanical switches to full blown, back lit LED swathed, multimedia and macro enabled gaming devices. On paper at least, the CM Trigger fits the latter description and should do well with its pro gamer preferred Cherry MX black switches along with a host of extra features and the robust build quality we have come to know and love from Cooler Master."

MSI Ravager Case @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Jun 16 2012 | 10:43A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It seems every time you turn around, a new case has hit the market. This is actually a good thing as it means with a little bit of looking you should be able to find one to suit your needs and tastes. MSI is a well-known brand in the graphics and mainboard market, but certainly isnt my first thought when it comes to cases. We have seen one other offering from MSI this year in terms of a budget case the Raptor. It reviewed fairly well, which makes us a bit curious as to what a mid-level offering will bring."

Up for review today I have another case from MSI, this time its the Stealth ATX Mid Tower chassis that features tool-less installation, a VGA stabilization system and a nice stealthy and stylish black look. The Stealth case also features advanced thermal airflow for excellent cooling with two pre-installed fans and space for five more additional fans for even more cooling ability if need be.

NEWS: The Ultimate Booth Babe Collection Final Cut - Computex 2012 Update
     Sat, Jun 16 2012 | 10:43A | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It is an early Saturday morning, expected high of 95DegF here in Taipei and Computex has come to a close once again. While doing a final walk through of Computex buildings yesterday, it came to our attention that we may have missed one or two photo opportunities and a few shots were taken that then increased to a few more and so on and so on. I hope all don`t mind but we thought we might throw in a final showing of the beauty of Computex and Taipei."

In Win BUC 101 Midi Tower Review
     Sat, Jun 16 2012 | 9:10A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The market may be filled with all sorts of PC cases ment to cover pretty much the taste of every user out there but for good or bad we haven`t really seen many new PC Cases lately (somewhat weird considering that Computex is just around the corner) and the few that have been released have yet to attract (for reasons unknown to me) the media spotlights most do. So it really goes without saying that we decided to gather as many of these newly released PC cases we could in order to bring them to your attention. In-Win may not be the most familiar brand name around but thanks to their high quality and quite innovative products they have managed to win a large market share in a very small period of time which is not a small feat. Today with us we have one of their latest midi towers, the BUC 101."

Sapphire HD 7770 Vapor-X 1 GB @ techPowerUp
     Sat, Jun 16 2012 | 9:05A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sapphire`s HD 7770 Vapor-X uses the company`s exclusive cooling solution paired with a large overclock out of the box. As result the card is whisper quiet in both idle and load, yet temperatures are comfortably low too. The card also comes at reasonable pricing of $150, an HDMI cable is included, too."

EVGA Taiwan Office Visit 2012
     Sat, Jun 16 2012 | 9:03A | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As hardware enthusiasts we strive to complete our "collection". Sometimes that collection leads to a closet full of old hardware while for others that is simply the perfect combo of components to build a monster machine. EVGA enthusiasts tend to exploit the second of these as can be seen within the EVGA community.

Sandy Bridge for servers: Intel Xeon E5-2600 review
     Sat, Jun 16 2012 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With a maximum of eight cores, 256-bit AVX instructions, quad-channel memory and integrated PCI-Express 3.0 I/O connections, Intel has significantly improved its dual-socket server platform. Whether workloads benefit more from pure processing power, fast memory communication or faster I/O, the new Sandy Bridge architecture has clear advantages in all areas compared to Intel's previous server platform. This is reflected by the test results. For example, with HPC applications we saw performance gains of a couple dozen percent. The database benchmark showed an improvement of 36 percent compared to the previous generation. The performance-per-watt has also increased according to the results, both in tests focusing on pure CPU power and the database benchmarks that take advantage more of memory bandwidth.

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.
