Cyborg S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 Gaming Keyboard Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Sat, Oct 20 2012 | 7:59A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A year or so ago Mad Catz released the Cyborg R.A.T. series mice. These mice were the craziest looking computer peripheral that Ive ever looked at till this point. What made the R.A.T. series great was the facts that not only were they unique and cool to look at they were solid performers. Bob reviewed the M.M.O. 7 Mouse a while back and gave it great remarks. The Mad Catz Cyborg S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 Gaming Keyboard (S7) takes the unique level of the R.A.T. series mouse and puts it to shame, the big question is can it hold up to the level that the R.A.T. performed at?"

Review: ASUS HD 7970 Matrix Platinum @ Ocaholic
     Fri, Oct 19 2012 | 3:53P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Finally after having posponed the embargo date hundred times it is gone for real and we are allowed to publish our review. With all of nVidia`s launches it`s been a while since we have last seen a new Radeon HD 7970 graphics card. The Radeon HD 7970 Matrix Platinum from ASUS come just right to mess up the green team. But not only, with this card ASUS should be able to provide you with a very powerful Radeon HD 7970. Thanks to the fact that this card has been equipped with ASUS` very well performing and yet silent DirectCU II Triple slot cooler along with a strong custom PCB and a huge factory overclocking you might be able to guess where the journey goes."

Rosewill Capstone 750W Power Supply Review @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Oct 19 2012 | 1:51P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall, the performance of the Capstone 750W is unexpectedly good, considering it is one of the first high performance power supplies that Rosewill released and the fact that the company is usually aiming for maximum value instead of top performance. Aside from the high electrical efficiency, which we could expect from a power supply bearing the 80Plus Gold certification, the 750W version of the Capstone also delivers excellent electrical performance, with tight voltage regulation and excellent ripple suppression..."

CM Storm Ceres 400 Headset Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Fri, Oct 19 2012 | 11:23A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After releasing the stereo headset Sonuz (tested here), CM Storm put on the shelves another 2.0 model, the Ceres 400. The biggest differences between the two peripherals are the size of the drivers (53 mm for the Sonuz versus 40 mm for the Ceres) and the lightweight design of the newer model. Both the Sonuz and the Ceres 400 are budget-conscious choices for those who don`t care about 5.1 surround sound models that are usually more expensive. We`ll first describe the Ceres, and then put it through the test."

Xigmatek Pure Black Asgard Pro Case Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Fri, Oct 19 2012 | 11:13A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the reasons I am a fan of Xigmatek is because they think outside the box when it comes to their products. One of the first things that come to mind was the integration of the heat-pipe direct transfer technology or H.D.T. And then there was the black coating that was spread over their heat sinks like the Dark Knight. To top it off even with being one of the first to implement anything new they really don`t over-charge for their products. I guess you can say there is a good price-to-performance ratio when it comes to using anything from Xigmatek. Our next product on the table isn`t displaying any new break-thru technology but a lot of class at a great value. The all-blacked out Asgard Pro is a very simplistic case which I think demonstrates style and class that will not empty the old bank account."

Samsung PM840 SSD 256 Gigabyte - Behold the bringer of IOPS @ ocaholic
     Fri, Oct 19 2012 | 11:06A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When a manufacturer already has an SSD like the PM830 in its portfolio then a successor must be a highly capable drive to not disappoint users expectations. With the PM840 Samsung wants to offer a new drive which should not only be a worthy successor but also push the boundries a bit further. Reading the specs already is impressive: 540 Megabyte per second sequential read performance, 520 Megabyte per second sequential write and 100`000 IOPS when reading 4 Kilobyte blocks randomly."

ZOWIE GEAR EC1 eVo Black Gaming Mouse Review
     Fri, Oct 19 2012 | 9:48A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Largely thanks to what i do i get to attend quite a few lanparty/events around Europe (unfortunately time is very limited so i rarely get the chance to travel outside from the EU) most of which are sponsored by manufacturers of gaming related peripherals such as gaming mice, pads, keyboards and headsets. Personally i think it`s great that some manufacturers sponsor such events to showcase their products and at the same time support professional teams (at least the ones that have worthy members). I am mentioning all this because the EC1 eVo Gaming Mouse by ZOWIE GEAR we have here with us today was developed by HeatoN (Emil Christensen) a legendary Counter Strike professional player (used to participate in small tournaments up to 2002 myself)."

Apple iPod Nano (2012) Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Fri, Oct 19 2012 | 9:42A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With its latest model, Apple has finally fixed the iPod nano. The 5th- and 6th-generations were a radical rethink that didn`t work all that well. The 7th-generation nano fixes this problem with another full-scale redesign that includes a larger, sharper touch screen. It`s also feather light, yet sturdy feeling, has an improved interface, and comes with better-sounding Apple EarPods."

Corsair Dominator Platinum 2133Mhz 16GB Review
     Fri, Oct 19 2012 | 9:09A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
What Corsair has to offer with this set of modules is a kit that will run with the best kits out on the market at stock speeds yet offers the ability to really push the limits of your CPU`s memory controller when it comes time to overclock them for added performance margins. Top that off with a unique industrial look and the ability to use the light bar feature to customize the modules and you have a kit that delivers excellent performance while looking great. At 2133Mhz, the Dominator Platinum modules are by no means a slow kit. Overclocking yielded a 15% boost in clock speed to 2481Mhz using timings of 9-12-11-30 and 1.695v. A pretty decent boost all the while running Cas 9 at close to 2500Mhz."

Crucial Ballistix Tactical Tracer DDR3-1866 16GB Quad Channel Memory Kit Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Fri, Oct 19 2012 | 9:09A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Not that long ago we took a look at Crucials Ballistix Elite memory and new we are back with the Ballistix Tactical Tracer Memory. Crucials Ballistix Tactical memory sits in the middle of the Ballistix line between the Ballistix Sport and the Ballistix Elite. Geared towards gamers the Ballistix Tactical Tracer memory features a very cool heatspreader, activity-indicating LEDs on the top edge, ground-effect LEDs along the bottom and temperature sensors that you can monitor with Crucials M.O.D. software. The kit we are taking a look at today is made up of 4 BLT4G3D1869DT2TXOB 4GB modules. So that gives us a 16GB kit running at 1866Mhz with timings of 9-9-9-27 at 1.5v. Is this the kit you want in your gaming rig? Read on to find out!"

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.
