Case Mod Friday: Pipe Fusion @ ThinkComputers.org
     Sat, Jul 20 2013 | 11:23A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have Gonzalo Galvan`s Pipe Fusion build. Here is what he had to say about it: It`s my second project, but the first with such dedication, at first were some simple changes but slowly began to appear new ideas that led me to change the entire interior to adapt to the watercooling. I am very happy with the mod to be better than I expected."

The SSD Review has Posted a New Article!
     Sat, Jul 20 2013 | 9:17A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Perhaps the most respect an SSD review site can gain is to be trusted to report on SSDs that carry with them a great deal of confidentiality and secrecy in their purpose and design. Being consistently chosen as the first and one of the very limited evaluators is icing on the cake. Such is the case between The SSD Review and TCS and has been for some time as we have previously published reports for the TCS Galatea and TCS Proteus SSDs. Our report today is rather special as we are looking at an entirely new design from TCS, one that has been aptly named the TCS BGADrive. The TCS BGADrive was released in January 2013 and one can`t imagine the work it takes to get from a simple conversation to final hands-on analysis and report of such equipment. This has been months in the making and much more cooperation than we have ever seen for a review prior. As much as cannot be spoken of or shown, we think our end report will grab and hold your attention as the TCS BGADrive is definitely something we don`t get our hands on every day. Two things stand out when we speak of TCS products, and these are MIL-STD-810 and the fact that these SSDs are created and trusted for `mission critical applications`. Defined, a mission critical application is one in which the failure of the device could result, directly or indirectly, in personal injury or death. These applications demand equipment that can stand well above the norm in pressure, shock and weather conditions, and that is what MIL-STD-810 is intended for."

ASRock 990FX Extreme9 review
     Sat, Jul 20 2013 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When you compare the ASRock 990FX Extreme9 to previously tested AMD 990FX boards, you can see that the new ASRock board is one of the most comprehensive boards on the market. Whether you will actually use eight USB 3.0 and eight Serial ATA 600 on an AMD board is another question, but if you're in need of high-end Socket AM3+ board, this 990FX Extreme9 is a great option.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 780: ASUS vs. EVGA vs. Inno3D vs. MSI
     Sat, Jul 20 2013 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Late May Nvidia introduced the GeForce GTX 780 which we called the 'Titan light' since it was based on the same high-end GK110 GPU used in the very expensive GeForce GTX Titan. You can find that original review here. Tests indicated that it was an average of 8 percent slower than the GTX Titan, not bad for a card that costs £548 compared to the £900 Titan. The GTX 780 gives you really good value for your money in the high-end segment.

Logitech H650e and H820e Enterprise Headsets Review
     Sat, Jul 20 2013 | 9:00A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Logitech has a long history of developing products for consumers, who traditionally have valued style and comfort, perhaps more so than corporate purchasers. Its business components are stylish, too, and are designed to match durability with comfort. To give us a feel for what Logitech can do for business users, the company sent us two of its headsets: We took the USB-powered Logitech H650e ($89.99) and the wireless H820e ($199.99) for a spin and have our thoughts posted here...

In our search to find a Crucial M500 960GB for sale, we stumbled across a new high-capacity SSD. The MyDigitalSSD BP4 is a solid product, we`ve already tested the other capacity sizes, but today we see if the large capacity model does as well as the smaller versions."

Cooler Master Storm Havoc Gaming Mouse Review @ Techgage
     Sat, Jul 20 2013 | 6:19A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In our review of CMs Sentinel Advance II gaming mouse last year, we found it to be a feature-filled product that was also comfortable to use, but it fell short of earning our wholehearted recommendation. This time around, we`ve got the SA IIs direct replacement, Havoc. Will the new kid on the block surpass its predecessor?"

Hauppauge HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition Plus Review @ Vortez
     Fri, Jul 19 2013 | 3:59P | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Compared to the original HD PVR Gaming Edition the HD PVR2 GE+ most prominently adds HDMI input, output and 1080p recording capabilities, with this update from the non-Plus model also enabling capture of 5.1 audio over S/PDIF and Optical inputs. Unlike the non-gaming edition HD PVR2 it comes equipped with component capture cables for the XBOX360 and PS3 as well as a single HDMI cable, making it a good self-contained package for getting set up with HD recording."

Western Digital My Net AC1300 Router @ TestFreaks
     Fri, Jul 19 2013 | 11:33A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the introduction of the 802.11ac standard, Western Digital has brought the My Net AC1300 to the market. This protocol is designed to transmit 450 Mbps on the 2.4 GHz band and 1300 Mbps on the 5 GHz band providing wired speeds wirelessly. While this standard is not yet commonplace and hardware that takes advantage of these speeds are still scarce it will soon gain a foothold as Apple has released its latest MacBook Airs with 802.11ac capability. Western Digital also sells the My Net AC Bridge to provide these speeds to areas that are not hardwired such as entertainment centers."

Case Mod Friday: monsterITX @ ThinkComputers.org
     Fri, Jul 19 2013 | 11:23A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have Tim Stokes monsterITX build. Here is what he had to say about it: I`ve built several ATX systems and decided this time around, I wanted to go mITX. I chose the Case Labs Mercury S3 case because I knew I wanted it to be a little monster. The focus for this case was to do subtle mods that kept the case looking for the most part stock, but adding touches that finished it 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.
