Intel 335 Series 240GB SSD Review
     Mon, Aug 12 2013 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Intel 335 Series SSD 240GB arrived Technic3D. Available in 80GB, 180GB, and 240GB configurations. Results in extreme performance with up to 500 MB/s sequential read and 450 MB/s sequential write speeds? We will check this and more against the SSDs from Corsair, OCZ, ADATA and G.Skill."

Leetgion Hellion
     Mon, Aug 12 2013 | 4:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With a good set of features that work well with no glitching at all, the Hellion is a pain-free experience which is a great start. Combine this with great build quality and well known parts, we see the Hellion being a great addition to the Legion arsenal and will cop many hours of gameplay in SCII. A little disappointing was the restriction to customising the LED’s to taillight only, and the Protoss yellow colour comes across on the right side a little darker than the left. Really, this is getting quite picky and are ‘non-issues’.

MSI N760 HAWK Video Card Review @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Aug 12 2013 | 2:17P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The MSI N760 HAWK is hands down the fastest NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 video card that we have yet to test. MSI designed this card from the ground up for overclockers and it looks like they did it right. The performance of this card was stellar and it overclocked faster than any other GeForce GTX 760 that we have tested before. Reaching nearly 1400MHz on the NVIDIA GK104 Kepler GPU is impressive and the MSI N760 HAWK was able to easily keep up with a GeForce GTX 680 reference card when manually overclocked..."

Corsair Raptor M40 Review @ Ocaholic
     Mon, Aug 12 2013 | 10:08A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last year, Corsair acquired Raptor Gaming, a maker of high performance PC gaming peripherals. Raptor Gaming is a well know brand which has an especially strong retail presence in Germany. Today we will analyze the new Raptor M40, equipped with an Avago ADNS-3090 sensor that features 4000 DPI resolution and the mouse itself costs a reasonable 59 US-Dollar."

Kingston MobileLite Wireless Review @ TestFreaks
     Mon, Aug 12 2013 | 9:50A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Kingstons follow-up to the Wi-Drive, their portable wireless storage device is the MobileLite Wireless which incorporates wireless media streaming but in a slightly different fashion than its predecessor. The MobileLite Wireless is a BYOS (bring your own storage devices) as it works with both SD cards and USB devices but has no built in storage. This device is able to read and write to attached cards and drives streaming them over Wi-Fi. In addition the MobileLite Wireless functions as a mobile device charger with a built in 1800 mg lithium-ion battery."

big.LITTLE: ARM's Strategy For Efficient Computing
     Mon, Aug 12 2013 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
big.LITTLE is ARM's solution to a particularly nasty problem: New process nodes no longer deliver the kind of overall power consumption improvements that they did prior to 2005. Prior to 90nm, semiconductor firms could count on new chips being smaller, faster, and drawing less power at a given frequency. Eight years ago, that stopped being true. New nodes still pack more transistors per square millimeter, but the improvements to power consumption and maximum frequency have been falling every single node. Rising defect densities have already created a situation where -- for the first time ever -- 20nm chips won't be cheaper than the 28nm processors they're supposed to replace. This is a critical problem for mobile, where low power consumption is absolutely vital. big.LITTLE is ARM's answer to this problem...

Samsung Series 5 NP540U3C Ultrabook
     Mon, Aug 12 2013 | 9:02A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This bad boy comes equipped standard with 8GB of system memory, a lightning fast Samsung SSD, a powerhouse Core i5 dual core, multi-threaded, integrated graphics processor and a touch screen to boot! It's hard to think all of that processing power is housed within the unit's tiny chassis. Coming in at just under $800, this Ultrabook is not for someone on a budget, but offers some great features for the cost. Here you are, the Samsung Series 5 Ultra Touch 13.5” NP540U3C Ultrabook.

SilverStone ST55F-G 550W Power Supply Unit
     Mon, Aug 12 2013 | 9:01A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Every computer needs a power supply to run. But a power supply is not just a power supply. There are many factors that come into play, such as 12 volt rails, available amps, modular / non modular cables and 80 Plus certification. In this review we look at the new 750W SilverStone ST55F-G 550W Power Supply Unit with modular cables and a 80 Plus Gold certification.

In Win GT1 Mid Tower Case Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, Aug 12 2013 | 6:19A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the years In Win has always been able to create very attractive cases that we have really enjoyed. The thing about the cases is that they would always seem to be able to keep the price down. This is again the case with the GT1. A mid tower case that has great looks, support for long video cards, 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch hard drives, a hard drive dock and USB 3.0. All of those features come at a price of $64.99, which seems like a steal. Read on and see if it really is a steal of if this case turns out to be a disappointment."

Windows Phone at its best, but is it enough?
     Sun, Aug 11 2013 | 4:00P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Enter the Lumia 925, Nokia’s latest flagship Windows Phone and answer to complaints regarding its predecessors' design. It ditches the thick polycarbonate shell, hefty slab of glass and space-consuming LCD display for a mostly aluminum body with an AMOLED screen. In the process, the new Lumia has shed some weight, dropping to 139 grams and 8.5mm thick, giving it an all new breath of life. But are the changes too late? Is this the Lumia we should have had at the launch of Windows Phone 8?

MSI GTX 760 Hawk @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Aug 11 2013 | 2:17P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As impressive as reference cards can be when they are introduced, its always impressive to see what all of the manufactures do with them when they have a little time to toy with the overclocks and fit their aftermarket cooling designs. A good example would be the card Im going to take a look at today. The MSI GTX 760 Hawk looks similar to the GTX 780 Gaming that I recently took a look at, but with a yellow theme that would go perfectly with their new Z87 M Power motherboard. I wonder how it will perform compared to the reference GTX 760 as well as the aftermarket cards. They set the mark high, so MSI is going to have their work cut out for them."

ASRock Z87 Extreme6/ac (Intel LGA 1150) @ techPowerUp

I take my first look at ASRock`s Z87 products with the Z87 Extreme6/ac. Packed full of connectivity options, it definitely has Extreme connectivity, but is it perhaps also an Extreme disappointment?"

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.
