Asrock Fatal1ty X79 Champion & Z77 Extreme9
     Thu, Jun 14 2012 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall we have been impressed by Asrockā€™s high-end offerings, as they really are top notch products. Asrock has continued to step up their game over the last few years and today we would have no problem purchasing one of their products over something from Asus or Gigabyte for example. The Fatal1ty X79 Champion and Z77 Extreme9 are more examples of why Asrock motherboards are worth checking out.

NZXT HALE82 N 650 W Power Supply Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Wed, Jun 13 2012 | 3:55P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NZXT is releasing today a new power supply series, the HALE82 N, comprised of three models: 550 W, 650 W, and 750 W all with the 80 Plus Bronze certification. The main external difference between the N and the regular HALE82 series is that the N line-up doesn`t have a modular cabling system. Internally, the original HALE82 uses a DC-DC design in its secondary, while the N version uses a regular design with Schottky rectifiers, which result in it costing less than the original HALE82."

G.SKILL ARES 2133MHz 16GB DDR3 Review @ Vortez
     Wed, Jun 13 2012 | 1:37P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Enter the ARES 16GB kit(F3-2133C9Q-16-GAB). With a blistering 2133MHz frequency this is the fastest kit we have tested to date. Couple this with relatively tight timings of 9-11-10-27 and the news just gets better. To run at this speed and latency, the DRAM voltage is increased from 1.5v to 1.65v but it is a small sacrifice to pay for one of the fastest 16GB kits available today."

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.
