Move Aside GTX 680: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 Review @ Techgage
     Tue, Jun 04 2013 | 12:14P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Though it might seem a bit unusual to see NVIDIA let loose its GTX 770 a mere week after its 780 launch, heres something to clear things up: $399. Built on GK104 (not GK110, like the 780), the GTX 770 is in effect a beefed-up GTX 680. It boasts 700 series features, NVIDIAs latest cooler, and of course, a savings of about $100."

Case Mod Friday: ViRoiD @ ThinkComputers.org
     Tue, Jun 04 2013 | 11:35A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have Bens ViRoiD build. Here is what he had to say about it: Pictures speak louder than words. Getting a 690 to fit in a prodigy is not a big deal until you start thinking about watercooling it, and a cpu, and ram. I wanted a color that matched the p8z77-i, and blue was the ticket. The orange case was chosen because of its location opposite of blue on the color wheel. Modding the front of the case to fit the 200mm rad was fun, plus it gave me some extra materials to make some psu covers with."

SanDisk Extreme II 240GB SSD Review
     Tue, Jun 04 2013 | 10:31A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 256GB capacity class is the sweet spot for enthusiasts. This size maximizes the price, capacity and performance ratio. SanDisk has high hopes for Extreme II, but in order to sell these drives in big numbers, it has to do well here."

WD Se 4TB Enterprise Hard Drive Review @ Techgage

Posted by: STAFF
With its Se series of enterprise hard drives, WD is targeting those in need of bulk storage, whether it be in a datacenter or NAS.

Posted by: STAFF
Hot on the heels of the GTX Titan comes the new GTX780 that uses the same type of GPU as we see in the GTX Titan. Zotac of course is one of the companies coming out with their own GTX780 card and we have taken it for a spin to see how it fares compared to the GTX 680 as well as the Zotac GTX Titan AMP! Edition that we tested earlier this month."

[Tech ARP] BIOS Option Of The Week - Hardware Prefetcher
     Tue, Jun 04 2013 | 10:14A | BIOS | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meager beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition. Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend. This week, we will be taking a look at the *Hardware Prefetcher** *setting."

Intel Haswell i7-4770K & i5-4670K Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Tue, Jun 04 2013 | 9:31A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After more than two years of speculation Intel`s Haswell is finally here.  This new architecture incorporates several new and potentially game-changing features into a 22nm die that consumes substantially less power than Ivy Bridge.  In this review we take a look at two processors:  the i7 4770K and the i5 4670K."

Haswell: Core i7 4770K and Core i5 4670K @ Ocaholic
     Tue, Jun 04 2013 | 9:22A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Haswell, this is the codename of Intels latest CPU generation which is based on an overworked Ivy Bridge microarchitecture. We had the chance to test two new CPUs, namely the Core i7-4770K and the Core i5-4670K. Intel claims that the new quad core processors are faster than the previous generation of Core i7-3XXX as well as Core i5-3XXX CPUs. The new processors, like the predecessor, features 22 nanometer transistors. This time we should find the biggest improvements with the integrated graphics unit and we`re really curious to find out how well a job Intel did."

Rosewill T600N Wireless Router Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Tue, Jun 04 2013 | 8:21A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In this modern area of wireless networking, the market is flooded with devices with advanced feature sets, sometimes not performing as well as others. This trade-off can be frustrating. Sometimes, the basic features are all one really needs in a WiFi router, and the Rosewill T600N fills that gap. Its an 802.11a/b/g/n router that can do 300 Mbps per frequency and even features standard replaceable antennas for its 2.4 GHz radio. ThinkComputers takes a look at this sub $60 unit that frequently can be found online for under $50!"

Adaptec (by PMC) ASR-72405 RAID Controller (X2) Review - 1M IOPS & 12GB/s Thru 24 SMART Optimus SSDs
     Tue, Jun 04 2013 | 8:02A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we first caught wind of the Adaptec Series 7 RAID adapters late last year, we were itching for the chance to get it in our test bench. But, in order to do the review justice, we needed SSDs. We needed a LOT of SSDs. We needed 24 SSDs. Unfortunately, sampling even 4 or 8 SSDs at one time is often difficult. That is why we jumped at the chance to test out the Adaptec ASR-72405 with 24 x SMART Optimus 200GB SAS SSDs."

Samsung MV900F Wi-Fi 16.3MP Digital Camera Review @ ModSynergy.com
     Mon, Jun 03 2013 | 4:27P | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Call this the last hurrah, or the last stand of the digital camera if you want, but, if I were to review a digital camera on this website, it had better be one that is refreshingly innovative and different from ones everyone has already seen. That is precisely the case with today`s review of the new Samsung MultiView MV900F Smart Wi-Fi 16.3MP Digital Camera."

MSI Z87-GD65 GAMING (LGA 1150) @ techPowerUp

Posted by: STAFF
Man the ramparts! A dragon is approaching! It`s coming to eat our pretty Haswells! Clad in black and red like its older brother, MSI`s Z87-GD65 GAMING was genetically engineered from the base DNA the Z77-GD65 GAMING used, but don`t be fooled, the Z87-GD65 GAMING has a few unique abilities."

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.
