LIAN LI PC-Q05 Thin Mini-ITX Chassis Review @MissingRemote
     Fri, Jun 08 2012 | 3:55P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Intel introduced the Thin Mini-ITX form factor with the DH61AG board, we were impressed with the performance and potential of the platform; however, the innovative form factor lacked any accompanying chassis to take advantage of the extra thin profile. Fortunately, that situation is changing with the introduction of LIAN LIs PC-Q05 which supports the new Thin Mini-ITX form factor. *"

Rosewill RK-8100 Gaming Keyboard Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Fri, Jun 08 2012 | 9:23A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
What is a gaming keyboard? What specific requirements does a keyboard have before its considered in the gaming category? There is only one thing. Yeah, a lot of people will tell you different things like, a specific number of anti-ghosting key suppression (roll over), or the fact that it features mechanical key switches, or that the keys themselves light up, but none of these things are correct. Marketing is the only thing that defines a device as a gaming keyboard. Marketing and marketing alone is the only requirement for a regular keyboard to make the jump from standard desktop keyboard to a gaming one. In steps the Rosewill RK-8100. Rosewills claim to the best bang for buck when it comes to gaming keyboards."

NewerTech NuGreen Energy Efficient Flexible Neck LED Desk Lamp Review
     Fri, Jun 08 2012 | 9:05A | Web News | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Working at nights (just like now) is something i do a lot mainly because there`s far less ambient noise around (and also less distractions) allowing me to perform noise level tests far more accurately than during the day. However what`s really hard is sitting in front of a 30 LCD screen and typing without any other light source in the room (amBX lights are not strong enough) something which basically means strong and frequent headaches. To avoid that you must put less strain to your eyes and for that you always need to have a light turned on in the same room which is something i don`t really like especially since the ones I have in this room are very powerful for night use. Well Newertech may have the answer for me since they just released the NuGreen Energy Efficient Flexible Neck LED Desk Lamp."

The ASUS P8Z77-M Pro is the micro-ATX board for the user looking for top end punch. Size may be smaller on the P8Z77-M Pro, but performance and quality are not.

HP Pavilion p7-1225 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Thu, Jun 07 2012 | 3:55P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HP Pavilion p7-1225 is one of those desktop systems that`s just a bit over the $500 entry-level price point, but also gives you a little more for your money. It has DX11-compatible 3D graphics on its AMD A8-3820 APU (accelerated processing unit, or a CPU with integrated graphics in AMD-speak). It`s basic, but capable of playing light to moderate 3D games right out of the box."

Antec One Gamer Series Mid-Tower Case Review @ circuitREMIX
     Thu, Jun 07 2012 | 11:06A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we`re taking a look at one of their new cases, the One. The One is different compared to the other Antec cases we`ve worked on, as it`s one of their value oriented offerings. Most of the other cases we`ve reviewed were from the Performance One series, which are generally very feature rich, but come in at higher price points. The One on the other hand is Antec`s lowest priced case in the Gamer series."

Virtu Universal MVP Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Thu, Jun 07 2012 | 9:11A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Updated 06/01/2012: We had originally published this review one month ago, and our results showed no performance improvement by using the Virtu MVP technology with video cards using graphics processors from AMD. Lucid, the developer of the Virtu technology, contacted us saying that the 2.1.110 driver we used (which came on the motherboard`s CD) had a bug and didn`t work correctly with AMD`s Catalyst 12.4 driver. They provided us with a new driver, 2.1.113, which presumably corrects the bug. Therefore, we redid all our tests with this new driver version. Let`s see if it really corrected the problem."

DV Nation RAMRod PC Review - A Storage Powerhouse
     Thu, Jun 07 2012 | 9:10A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The most obvious positive is the storage system - DV Nation takes all the questions out of the construction of the ultimate storage system for a buyer and ships the RAMRod ready to rock right out of the box. If you have a workload that can utilize intense and amazing storage speeds, then by all means you need to take a look at this PC. Gamers may fall in love with it, but truly, you don`t need this kind of storage config to get the most out of your experience. "
