Dell Inspiron 14z (Mid-2012) Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Mon, Jun 25 2012 | 2:08P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The recently updated Dell Inspiron 14z is an ultrabook laptop that is conservatively priced yet includes a 3rd-gen Intel Ivy Bridge CPU, discrete graphics and impressive performance. It does lack in terms of battery life and has some design flaws, but other than that, it`s a new contender to the market that`s well worth a look."

HuntKey X-MAN 90W Universal Notebook Adapter Review
     Mon, Jun 25 2012 | 11:54A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Every single person out there has pretty much owned or at least used a notebook at least once in their lives so you all know how large their AC power adapter can be making it quite difficult to carry them around (even inside a notebook bag they take too much space). Size aside most of the time these are not only hard to find in the market but also quite expensive to replace when they die (if you decide to get a genuine one). Because of these two reasons it really comes as little surprise that many manufacturers have released their own 3rd party AC power adapters which are not only smaller and cheaper than the genuine ones but in some instances they also offer improved electrical efficiency. Huntkey is one such manufacturer and today we will be taking a rather quick look at their X-MAN 90W Universal Notebook Adapter."

BitFenix Prodigy @ techPowerUp
     Mon, Jun 25 2012 | 11:05A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
BitFenix`s latest case offering, by the name Prodigy, has already turned many heads at Computex. It combines the best of many worlds, with its included handles, ability to hold full size components to be used on an ITX board and the choice between potent air or liquid cooling. Is it really the wonder child we have been waiting for, or just a cheap imposter?"

Zalman Z11 Plus Black Case Review @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Jun 25 2012 | 9:59A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are going to be looking at one of the many Zalmans chassis: the Z11 Plus chassis. This particular chassis incorporates a unique feature that I have yet seen on other manufacturers chassis. And that being, an HDD cooling system incorporated into the chassis directly. Instead of just placing a fan on or near the HDDs, like other manufacturers do, Zalman specifically designed a powered venting system on this chassis that will help keep our HDDs cool during their usage, and not have that heated air circulate inside of the chassis."

Come To LANcouver 2012!
     Mon, Jun 25 2012 | 9:21A | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Before LANcouver 2011 last year, I didnt even know that anyone was trying to resurrect the glory of the multi-day LAN event in the Vancouver, Canada area. But a chance encounter at the Memory Express Duke Nukem LAN changed all that for the better. It was there that I ran into Spencer Whitney, the man behind the LANcouver movement, and together, we set the wheels in motion for a LAN renaissance in Western Canada. *"

Radeon HD 7970 GHz edition review
     Mon, Jun 25 2012 | 9:10A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the new Radeon HD 7970 GHz edition. The product is called GHz edition though even a little more. AMD now uses a Boost feature, exactly similar to what NVIDIA is doing on the 670/680 cards. The R7970 Ghz edition can `boost` from 1000 MHz towards 1050 MHz if it meets the right conditions. So the board power (maximum power draw) needs to allow it to do so, if not it drops to 1 GHz or whatever board power range is allowed. Not only have there been tweaks on the GPU, no the memory clocks got overhauled as well and have been increased from 5,5 Gbps towards 6 Gbps bringing the product a good chunk of additional memory bandwidth. Overall the new values should bring the product a nice 10 to 15% performance boost opposed to the regular model. Read the article here"

AMD OpenCL APP SDK Beats Intel s Own SDK On Ivy Bridge
     Sun, Jun 24 2012 | 4:08P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Here are some OpenCL benchmarks from the Intel Ivy Bridge CPU. Being compared though is AMD`s APP SDK, which does support running OpenCL on x86 CPUs, to Intel`s CPU-based OpenCL SDK for Linux. To some surprise, AMD`s Accelerated Parallel Processing SDK when using the Ivy Bridge CPU is actually faster than the Intel OpenCL SDK on the same hardware."

OCZ improves Vertex 4 with firmware 1.4
     Sun, Jun 24 2012 | 12:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new firmware really improves the performance of the Vertex 4 128 and causes a moderate improvement for the 256 GB version. Writing large files on the Vertex 128 GB now goes twice as fast, and 25 percent faster on the Vertex 4 256 GB. You will actually notice this increase when using the SSDs. In other areas the improvements are less drastic, which makes the average look less impressive. If you own a Vertex 4 128 GB or 256 GB then we definitely recommend installing the new firmware. Do remember to make a back-up first, for example with Ghost, otherwise you will lose all your data.

Samsung Series 9 15” NP900X4C Ivy Bridge Ultrabook
     Sun, Jun 24 2012 | 12:00P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The most confusing thing to me is why Samsung, a company that makes one of the top SSDs on the market, would venture elsewhere to supply SSDs for their own Ultrabook, an Ultra that is arguably the best on the market in many respects. Our report today will be an overview of the new Samsung Series 9 15? Ivy Bridge Ultrabook along with a more detailed analysis and very biased opinion with respect to where Samsung seems to be falling short in their quest for the perfect Ultra.

Corsair Vengeance 2000 Headset Review
     Sun, Jun 24 2012 | 11:54A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall, I`m very impressed with the Corsair Vengeance 2000 gaming headset. True to the Corsair name, they are solidly built, well thought out, and sound incredible. The fact that they are wireless only adds to the ability to enjoy them, since you will no longer have to miss out on in-game chat or movie dialog as you leave your computer to refill on gaming/movie refreshments. Although they are not intended to be used solely for listening to music, I cannot imagine anyone to be disappointed by the sound quality unless you have golden ears and are incredibly picky about your headphones."

SHOCK Ones competition is a headset we recently reviewed, Corsairs Vengeance 1500. Can the SHOCK One electrify its competition to utter dust? Keep reading to find out."

OCC E3 2012 Awards
     Sun, Jun 24 2012 | 9:10A | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Where do I begin? No release date? No pricing? Technical issues? Lackluster multi-platform titles? Well when I put it like that, it`s no wonder the Wii U is my biggest disappointment of E3, right? Nintendo is still shooting to release the Wii U by the end of the year, yet no mention of a price? That`s a problem! The other major problem? Framerate issues when using two GamePad controllers. At last year`s E3, Nintendo naively announced it would only support one GamePad. That has thankfully changed, but if the technical issues aren`t fixed, that could be a major problem. But going back to the lack of pricing again, we also don`t know what a system purchase will include - one GamePad or two?"

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.
Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 Intel X79 LGA2011 Motherboard In-Depth Review
Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 Intel X79 LGA2011 Motherboard In-Depth Review
Jul 27 | Motherboards
Rating:
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.
