[Tech ARP] BIOS Option Of The Week - CPU Differential Amplitude
     Mon, Jul 09 2012 | 9:10A | 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 *CPU Differential Amplitude*setting."

Samsung HMX-QF20 Wi-Fi Enabled HD Camcorder - BCCHardware
     Mon, Jul 09 2012 | 9:03A | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
How do you do a camcorder right these days? You either have to have some insane quality that you can`t get in a smaller device, or you have to offer great functionality and convenience. Samsung HMX-QF20 tries to capitalize on quality, performance, convenience and features - all with an attractive price tag. They do this by using flash storage for your video (SD, SDHC or SDXC) and putting WiFi in the camera for backup, sharing and viewing convenience. . ."

REVIEW: MSI Z77-GD55 @ PureOverclock
     Sun, Jul 08 2012 | 1:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Prior to Ivy Bridge, MSI released their Z77A-GD65 motherboard and we had nothing but great things to say about the GD65. It performed as good as any product we tested and hit 5.2GHz on our Sandy Bridge 2600K. The motherboard boasted enthusiast features at lower price tier so we saw a phenomenal bang for the buck but since Ivy Bridge had not hit our lab at that point, we did not have the opportunity to see the beast unleashed. That was then and this is now, as we have a very similar board, the MSI Z77A-GD55 in our lab, and we also have the chance to compare Sandy Bridge with Ivy Bridge this time around. Can the GD55 match the prowess we saw in the GD65? Let`s get the Z77A-GD55 on the test bench and find out."

Cooler Master Storm Sentinel Advance II @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Jul 08 2012 | 12:04P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Most of you who have read any of my past mice reviews will know that I am very particular about them and have a strong hate of the Phillips Twin eye sensor that a good portion of the market has been using for a few years now due to a few of the sensors quirks. When I was introduced to Cooler Masters Gaming Accessories Product Manager, Carter Salley, he and I had one of the geekiest conversations about mouse sensors and our dislike of the Twin Eye sensor. When it was all said and done I was left very excited to see what Cooler Master would be coming out with in the future with someone like Carter as the wheel. Today I have in my hands their Sentinel Advance II, a revamped version of the Twin Eye equipped original, but without the god awful sensor. With a proper sensor onboard, it might very well be a mouse to consider."

Be Quiet! Dark Power Pro 10 750W Power Supply Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Sun, Jul 08 2012 | 9:52A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Be Quiet! Dark Power Pro 10 750W power supply is an 80 plus gold rated unit designed for high-end silent performance. The Dark Power Pro 10 750W power supply uses Be Quiet!`s own 135mm fluid dynamic bearing SilentWings 2 fan, optimized for low dB and long life performance. Surrounding the Dark Power Pro 10 power supply unit is a rubberized sleeve to further isolate the power supply from the vibrations caused by the chassis. Four additional case fan headers can be plugged into the Dark Power Pro 10 unit itself for lowering the ambient operating temperatures inside the chassis. To optimize case airflow even further, the Dark Power Pro 10 uses modular cables and provides a flexible wiring solution for all manner of high-end hardware combinations.///"

XPAND YOUniversal Electronic 3D Eyewear Review @MissingRemote
     Sun, Jul 08 2012 | 9:10A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We last visited the topic of universal active 3D glasses technology with our XPAND X103 review. With the introduction of the Full HD 3D Glasses standard in 2012 stereoscopic 3D products, the display and eyewear industry have matured away from the mish-mash of proprietary communication mechanisms. Standard-compliant products can utilize radio frequency (RF) and/or infrared (IR) for the communication link between displays and glasses. In theory, any vendors glasses complying with the standard will work with any standard-compliant display (so long as each product has the same logo, e.g. Full HD 3D RF or Full HD 3D IR). *"

Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SSD Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Sun, Jul 08 2012 | 9:10A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Kingston`s new HyperX 3K 240GB has been fighting an uphill battle from the day it was first introduced. Drives sporting its integral SandForce SF 2281 have been on the market for the better part of a year and many are well established while selling at lower price points. But Kingston does have some tricks up their collective sleeves which may allow yet another cookie-cutter drive stand apart from the competition.* *"

Patriot PBO Alpine Android 2.2 Media Player Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Sat, Jul 07 2012 | 4:25P | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the PBO Alpine, Patriot is taking a 1080p HD Media Player and adding in the flexibility and stability of the Android 2.2 OS teamed with an ARM926 processor. The Android OS takes the PBO Alpine to levels we have not seen in a simple, stand-alone media player, adding the capability to side load thousands of apps to tailor the experience to exactly your liking. Straight out of the box, the PBO Alpine offers a rich and powerful set of features, and keeps it all contained into a very simple installation and interface. The unit itself is very uncluttered, with HDMI, and optical and stereo mini audio outputs, as well as two USB 2.0, Ethernet and optional WiFi (through USB) to connect directly to USB media and your network. An SD card slot is onboard for additional storage for apps and media, and can also be used as a media input should you wish to pull a card directly from your camera/video recorder and view instantly.///"

Posted by: STAFF
Corsair GS800 Gaming Series Power Supply Review @ HardwareHeaven.com A little over a year ago we took a look at Corsair`s latest mid-range PSU. Based on a CWT design and aimed at gamers the GS800 offered a nice balance of price and performance mixed with a design standing out a little. Time and the market move on though and now Corsair are back with a revised GS800 featuring new chassis, internal design and in theory, improved performance."
