Lian li PC-Q25 ITX Case Review - XSReviews
     Fri, Nov 09 2012 | 11:23A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Lian Li was founded in 1983, they are one of the world`s largest and most reputable manufacturers of aluminium PCcases in Taiwan. They also have over twenty years of experience in the computer products field. Today I`m looking at the PC --Q25, it`s a Mini-ITX case and it`s made entirely of Aluminium. Being a Mini-ITX case it`s likely that some hardware won`t fit in the case, we take a look at the options. A link to the article would be much appreciated."

ROCCAT Savu Optical Gaming Mouse Review @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Nov 09 2012 | 9:43A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
All in all this is one of the best mice Ive ever used. I would put it up against any of the famous big-name mice and bet money on it. Of course, a mouse is a very personal item as well so if you dont like it, dont blame me. If you need your mouse to do a few extra things without adding a slew of buttons you cant reach then look no further. Its at home in a game with highly complex and timed macros as much as it lets you gain some convenience in Office or any other desktop app including Windows."

Mach Xtreme MX-ES 32 GB USB 3.0 @ techPowerUp
     Fri, Nov 09 2012 | 9:07A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The MX-ES can be mistaken for a cheap run-of-the-mill USB 2.0 drive, but its generic housing holds an SLC-flash-based heart. Mach Xtreme got us drooling with advertised speeds of 170/185 MB/s read/write. The drive did not quite hit those numbers, but managed to get our nod of approval."

Lenovo IdeaCentre A720 Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Fri, Nov 09 2012 | 8:30A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Using a touchscreen is something we are used to with our mobile phones and tablets but it really has not translated to the desktop all that well. Yes there have been all-in-one touchscreen systems, but for the most part they have been clunky and Windows 7 really is not made for a touchscreen. This all changes with Windows 8. The Metro interface in Windows 8 is more or less designed to be used with a touchscreen device. Today we are checking out Lenovos flagship all-in-one and their largest as well with a 27-inch touchscreen display. The IdeaCentre A720 features a very sleek and thin design, NVIDIA GeForce Graphics, a TV tuner, HDMI in and out, WiFi, Bluetooth and much more. Read on as we have some fun and check out this system."

QNAP TS-869 Pro 8-Bay NAS Review
     Fri, Nov 09 2012 | 6:34A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When QNAP went high-end last year with 10GbE capability, they left an opening for lower cost units designed for true small office environments. The x69 Series fills that gap while still offering high drive count NAS products, but reduces some of the enterprise features only used in large office environments."

Power Supply Units with 800-860 W Capacity
     Fri, Nov 09 2012 | 3:09A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Power supply units with about 800 W capacity are an optimal choice for pretty powerful gaming rigs these days. They can easily power a couple of high-end graphics accelerators and a fast CPU (even at non-nominal frequencies), but their price is not too high at the same time. Today we will talk about four great products like that from Chieftec, Cooler Master, Corsair and Seasonic.

Posted by: STAFF
Foxconn Electronics (Hon Hai Precision Industry) reportedly plans to establish manufacturing plants in the US and is currently conducting evaluations in cities such as Detroit and Los Angeles, according to market watchers.

Digital Storm Bolt Small Form Factor Gaming PC Review
     Fri, Nov 09 2012 | 2:38A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gaming PCs come in all shapes and sizes, but the small form factor gaming rig is not one that you see all that often. When it comes to tablets, notebooks and small form factor PCs, “thin and light” may indicate the latest and greatest in design and mobile components, but when it comes to gaming, a lithe chassis can be indicative of deep compromises on the performance inside. Digital Storm has tackled the task of building a system that offers both high-performance parts and a small chassis with the Bolt series of custom PCs. Indeed, they nailed it on the compact size; the Bolt’s case measures just 3.6"(W) x 14"(H) x 15"(D), and while the components inside the Bolt we tested aren't the highest-end parts that money can buy, they're still fairly impressive.

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.
