Corsair Vengeance K60 & M60 FPS Keyboard & Mouse Review @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Jul 13 2012 | 9:16A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The time I spent with the Corsair Vengeance M60 and K60 has been very positive. They are both very comfortable and ergonomic. The wrist wrest on the K60 could stand to be longer, perhaps the full length of the keyboard. Its hard to adjust coming from a keyboard that has a wrist wrest and then going to the K60 which only provides a rest for the left arm on the WASD keys. I understand this though, with it being an FPS motivated keyboard. The 20 key rollover is extremely nice, but something that I personally will never fully utilize but Im sure that there are plenty of people out there who are more than capable of taking advantage of that..."

HP Omni 27 Quad All-In-One Review
     Fri, Jul 13 2012 | 9:01A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Omni 27 is HP's latest all-in-one that shares many aesthetic characteristics with the TouchSmart 520 we recently reviewed, despite being in a different class. Inside we find a third-generation Intel Core i5-3550S Ivy Bridge processor clocked at 3.0GHz, 8GB of DDR3 memory, a 2TB Hitachi hard drive spinning at 7,200 RPM, Radeon HD 6550A graphics and Beats Audio. There's also an HDMI-in port so you could use this display as an HDTV to watch cable programming from a set-top box or play console games. There's a 27-inch display tucked behind the edge-to-edge glass that admittedly looks much cleaner than what we saw on the 520. The difference here is that the Omni's 27-inch display isn't touch-sensitive, something a lot of people won't really miss in a pre-Windows 8 desktop system, or a desktop in general.

As such, we thought it would be a great time to round-up some of the hottest offerings to see how they compare to each other and to AMD’s latest, the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition, which hit the scene recently. We’ve got six cards on tap for you today, four GeForce GTX 680 and two GeForce GTX 670 cards, from companies like MSI, Asus, EVGA, ZOTAC, and Gigabyte...

Thermaltake Water2.0 Pro and Performer CPU Coolers Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Thu, Jul 12 2012 | 7:59P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The latest entry in the Self-Contained Liquid Cooling is the Thermaltake Water2.0 series. The initial offerings in the Thermaltake Water2.0 lineup are the base model Performer and the larger upgraded Pro models. Both the Water2.0 Performer and Pro share almost identical features and components, with the Pro upgrading the radiator (fin and coil array) to a thickness doubling the performer for greater heat dissipation for use in more heat intensive applications. Both pieces use a copper contact plate with circular pump to keep the liquid moving. Flexible rubber tubing is used between the pump and radiator, making installation quite a bit easier and adding flexibility to radiator placement options. Dual 120mm 1200-2000rpm fans are used in a push/pull configuration on the radiator, and are capable of over 81 CFMat a very quiet 27.36Dba. Fan speed control can be run from your BIOS or software of your choice for optimal cooling to noise ratio. Versatile mounting hardware adapts to Intel LGA775/1155/1156/1366/2011 as well as AMD AM2/3 and FM1.///"

PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
