SilverStone ARM22SC ARM Two Dual LCD Monitor Mount Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Sat, Jul 13 2013 | 9:17A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We mainly know SilverStone for their cases and for good reason, they are high quality and look great. What if SilverStone took that same quality and put it into a LCD monitor mount? Then you would have what we are reviewing today which is the ARM Two ARM22SC dual LCD Monitor Mount from SilverStone. LCD arms are a great addition to any computer setup, especially if you are using a multi-monitor system. The ARM22SC is constructed with robust aluminum alloy and steel so this is a heavy duty piece of hardware. It will support two displays with VESA mounts. Read on as we get this installed and see how it transforms our desk."

Asustek may fail to reach 2013 notebook shipment goal
     Sat, Jul 13 2013 | 9:02A | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Asustek Computer may have difficulty achieving its shipment goal of 20 million notebooks for 2013 and its tablet shipments may only reach 12 million units, at most, as its second-quarter notebook shipments have been weaker than expected, while visibility for third-quarter demand is also not strong, according to the company.

Toshiba KIRAbook High Resolution Ultrabook Review
     Sat, Jul 13 2013 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the KIRAbook 13 I7, Toshiba is flexing its muscles and taking on the likes of Apple, Asus, and Lenovo in the ultrabook arena. And you know what? Toshiba seems to be on the right track. With clean lines, a 2560 x 1440 resolution display and a slick magnesium alloy body, the KIRAbook is anything but a typical laptop. Hitting a home run in this market isn't easy, because a true ultrabook should be as much about form as it is function. It should be thinner than a laptop, and lighter too. It needs processing power as well as decent battery life. But small, powerful hardware usually comes at a steep price, and driving the price too high invites unfavorable comparisons to other solutions. There are areas where a certain level of compromise can be acceptable in a laptop, so long as the system is strong contender for it's particular target audience and use case. Ultrabooks, on the other hand, are expected to approach perfection. And (unlike more than a few ultrabooks) the Toshiba KIRAbook almost does...

MSI GTX 760 TwinFrozr Gaming 2 GB @ techPowerUp
     Sat, Jul 13 2013 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI`s GTX 760 TwinFrozr GAMING comes with the same powerful cooler that we`ve seen on their GTX 770. This means that the card is extremely quiet in both idle and load, yet doesn`t run hot at all. The card is also overclocked out of the box."

Crucial M500 480GB SSD Review
     Sat, Jul 13 2013 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Crucial's M500 offers the lowest price per gigabyte for an MLC SSD with enterprise-class features not seen on typical consumer SSD data drives. With new 128Gbit MLC NAND paired with the Marvell 9187 controller the M500 should deliver great performance at a historically low price point. Is the Crucial M500's performance up to par?

Gainward GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST 2GB GS
     Fri, Jul 12 2013 | 3:59P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the recent release of the GeForce series 7 graphics cards NVIDIA has once again taken the crown for the single most powerful graphics processing unit and although many of us hope that AMD can bring something to match them soon for the sake of competition (and in turn lower prices) things are not that easy. Regardless however although all three cards announced in the series 7 are quite remarkable not everyone has the ability to get one and so with series 6 prices naturally taking a significant hit this just might be the best time for people to invest on one of the previous generation models. Today on our test bench we have the last addition in the GeForce series 6 line by Gainward the 650 Ti BOOST 2GB Golden Edition."

Crucial Ballistix Sport XT 2x8GB DDR3-1866 CL10 1.5V Review @ Ocaholic
     Fri, Jul 12 2013 | 9:25A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After recent takeover of Elpida, Microns memory manufacturing division has finally shown a positive profit for the first time since 2011. Now that one of the giants is feeling healthy again, one should expect to see Micron memory ICs to spread even deeper in the lineups of various memory manufacturers. As a company owned by Micron, Crucial should be now exception. When we made a series of Crucial reviews last summer, we saw that there actually were very few different bins and the difference between the models came down to heatspreaders, naming and features. So, will it be any different this year?"

Seasonic X-Series SS-1250XM Review @ Ocaholic
     Fri, Jul 12 2013 | 9:17A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the SS-1250XM Seasonic has a high end power supply in its portfolio which offers 1250 Watt output power. When looking for an 80Plus certificate one can find a gold sticker on this PSU. Furthremore Seasonic is one of the very few power supply manufacturers, that actually own fabs. Therefore they don`t need to rely on OEM channels. We`re already really curious to see what this 200 Euro power supply is capable of."

IN WIN G7 Mid-Tower ATX Case Review
     Fri, Jul 12 2013 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have been using IN WIN cases here at HardOCP for as long as HardOCP has been in existence. Some of our first case mods were based on an IN WIN chassis. We have lost focus on IN WIN in the last decade or so because there are so many quality cases that hit the mark. Does the G7 case live up the nostalgia we have for the brand, for $56?
