Cooler Master HAF Stacker 935
     Thu, Oct 17 2013 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Today we are reviewing the Cooler Master HAF Stacker 935; however, by adding an additional 915 to the bottom (or top) of the case it transforms the Stacker 935 into the Ultra Tower (945). This means we could potentially have our main gaming rig, our server and our dedicated folding rig all in one case! The 935 is actually the combination of the 925 and the 915 cases. Factor in support for a bunch of different water cooling configurations, and we’ve got a very interesting “modular” case. Let’s take a closer look at the Cooler Master HAF Stacker 935.”

ASUS Radeon R9 270X DirectCU II Top Review @ Ocaholic
     Thu, Oct 17 2013 | 8:49A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Meanwhile the AMD Radeon R9 270X is more interesting than the R280X because its clocks are different than the Radeon HD 7870 that shares the same silicon. Yet AMD`s partners are launching custom designs only right from the beginning and in some cases didn`t even bother making a new card. The Radeon R9 270X from ASUS we are going to have a look at today, for example, is physically the same as their now one year and a half old Radeon HD 7870 DirectCU II Top V2."

AMD Radeon 7000 and Radeon R200 Series Mixed CrossFire Testing @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Oct 17 2013 | 8:04A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new AMD Radeon R7 and R9 series video cards went on sale this morning and a number of our readers have asked if they can enable AMD CrossFireX technology with their current AMD Radeon HD 7000 series card with them. The new AMD R-200 series is essentially a product re-brand, so the hardware is the same. AMD confirmed to use earlier this week that you would be able to run mixed CrossFire, but we wanted to try it out for ourselves and see how it works in the real world. Read on to see what worked and what did not!"

Coolermaster HAF Stacker Series Cases
     Wed, Oct 16 2013 | 4:04P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

Cooler Master, a leading creator, innovator and manufacturer of desktop components and more, today officially makes available to the world the first stackable computer case series, the HAF Stacker Series. Launching with three connectable and stackable models, HAF 915F, HAF 915R, and HAF 935.

Joining together two titans among Cooler Master case series, HAF Stacker takes the essence of the widely popular High Air Flow and Stacker series and elevates them to new heights as a single, cohesive line. The large drive storage and interior space of the Stacker series meets the Water and Air cooling design of the HAF series. The result is the first modular and expandable full tower with smaller companion cases that all stack together seamlessly.

www.pcstats.com

Available in three distinct models, the HAF Stacker series features a full tower HAF 935 configuration consisting of the HAF 915R and HAF 925, M-ITX HAF 915R, and M-ITX HAF 915F. Each base configuration offers unique features and benefits that stand out on their own merit while being stackable with other models in the series for expanded functionality. This is all made possible by a CM patent pending rail system that was inspired by a military picatinny rail to enable the attachment and removal of each stackable piece in 2 easy and secure steps.

HAF 915F
MITX supporting long graphics card (310mm), standard PSU and water cooling
Front mounted power supply for better cable management

MSI N660 Gaming Review: affordable and silent GeForce
     Wed, Oct 16 2013 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We reviewed the MSI N660 Gaming. We've tested GeForce GTX 660 cards before from MSI, and we especially liked the standard N660. It was affordable and had a very silent cooler, and it earned the Hardware.Info Silver Award at the time. We also tested the TwinFrozr version of the N660, which had a more deluxe cooler and better cooler performance. That one will now be replaced by the N660 Gaming.

Cooler Master HAF Stacker 935
     Wed, Oct 16 2013 | 4:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I think we have all thought at one time or another that if we could just build a case that we wanted it would bee so cool. Or not having to cram in all your hardware, water cooling setup, hard drives and all the wires and cables that go with it. Cooler Master must have been thinking the same thing and came up with a totally new idea for the computer case market. The Cooler Master HAF Stacker 935 is like nothing you have every seen before.

Toshiba Electronics Launches Miniature 600V Superjunction Power MOSFETs
     Wed, Oct 16 2013 | 3:59P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com
Toshiba Electronics Europe (TEE) has announced that its next-generation superjunction (SJ) DTMOS-IV power MOSFET technology is being made available for the first time in small outline, low-profile DFN packaging. New 600V DTMOS-IV MOSFETs in a DFN package will be ideal for high-speed switching in power supplies, lighting ballasts and other applications requiring a space-saving alternative to more conventional D2PAK and DPAK devices.

Offering current ratings from 9.7A to over 30A, the new devices in the TKxV60W family of 600V MOSFETs have ultra-low on resistance (RDS(ON)) ratings from 0.38? to just 0.098?. A leading RDS(ON)*Qg figure of merit ensures high-efficiency switching while a low output capacitance (Coss) supports optimised operation at light loads. Each device also incorporates an additional sense pin for direct driver connection.

Toshiba's DTMOS-IV process delivers MOSFETs that exhibit a better temperature coefficient of RDS(ON) than alternative devices. This allows efficiency benefits to be realised even during high-temperature operation. As with other devices in Toshiba's DTMOS-IV family, the new DFN MOSFETs have an optimised gate-drain capacitance (Cgd) that delivers improved dv/dt switching control. Support for lower dv/dt ratings also helps to reduce the tendency to ringing in high-speed switching circuitry.

At 8mm x 8mm the DFN package has an outline that is 20% smaller than a D2PAK package. A profile of only 0.85mm is almost three times lower than a traditional DPAK and over five times lower than a D2PAK.

Toshiba uses the deep trench process in its DTMOS-IV fourth generation single-epitaxial superjunction MOSFET. This allows closer trench pitch compared to the third-generation (multi-epitaxial) process, leading to a 30% better on-state resistance for a given die area.

Thermaltake Urban S31 Mid-Tower Case Review
     Wed, Oct 16 2013 | 3:55P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Thermaltake sets its sights on a part of the market that is looking for an excellent enthusiast case with a look that is not over the top, but rather more refined and sleek. Along with that Thermaltake promises "extreme silent performance" and "advanced ventilation" along with a helping of space for those water cooling users.

Kingston's Fastest Ever SSD? SSDNow V300 240GB Benchmarked
     Wed, Oct 16 2013 | 3:55P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Looking at the numbers, Kingston's SSDnow V300 SSD is spec'd for 4KB random reads at 85,000 IOPS and 4KB random writes at 43,000 IOPS. The SSDNow V300 drive supports SMART, NCQ, and TRIM. Peak power consumption is rated at 2.052W, idle is a scant 64mW; this puppy can certainly help extend notebook battery life if you're considering an SSD to replace a 2.5" HDD. The 1.0 million hours MTBF rating Kingston assign to the SSDnow V300 is lower than other SSDs PCSTATS have tested (average is 1.2M - 2M hrs MTBF). The drive is backed by a 3 year limited warranty."
