Cooler Master ARC Macbook and iPad Stand @ Benchmark Reviews
     Fri, May 25 2012 | 9:46A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Most enthusiasts think of Cooler Master primarily as a case and CPU cooler vendor, although they`ve long since branched out into other product lines, like gaming peripherals and accessories for notebook computers and mobile devices. Benchmarch Reviews takes a look at one of their newest products, the Cooler Master ARC Macbook Pro and iPad stand."

Corsair Vengeance K60/M60 and K90/M90 Input Devices
     Fri, May 25 2012 | 9:03A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair is relatively new to the gaming peripherals market, and the company undoubtedly took its time refining these products before stepping up to compete. The mechanical keyboards are designed to enhance gamers’ performance, with the K60 tailored for First-Person Shooters and the K90 for RTS and MMO gaming, and they’re both built to withstand years of abuse, resist crud buildup under the keys, and look good too. The M60 and M90 mice are designed to complement the K60 and K90 keyboards, respectively. Although the mice have quite a bit in common, they have a few features that set them apart from one another and make them a bit more suited to one type of gaming over another...

Corsair Carbide 300R review: compact wind tunnel
     Fri, May 25 2012 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We were duly impressed by the Corsair Carbide 300R. For an average price of £63 this chassis has everything you need for an average all-round computer system. Even a relatively high-end system with two graphics cards and a serious CPU will fare well in this chassis. We like Corsair's decision to limit the number of hard drives spaces. In our opinion, most standard computer systems will never use more than four hard drives, and by limiting the hard disk rack they improved the amount of interior space and also the airflow, which in turn benefits the cooling performance. This is reflected by our test results. The Carbide 300R cools the best and keeps noise production to an acceptable level. Strictly speaking, the 300R performs slightly better than the Antec Three Hundred Two, particularly in terms of ease of use and features. In its price class the Corsair Carbide 300R is one of the best cases you can currently buy.

HIS Radeon HD 7950 IceQ Turbo
     Fri, May 25 2012 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Those willing to dabble with a little extra overclocking should be able to get HD 7970-like speed out of any HD 7950, but HIS's model made the task easier by coming partly overclocked. Its IceQ cooler also helped to keep the card's temperatures in check while making nary a peep.

Gigabyte A75M-D2H and A75-UD4H Motherboard Review
     Fri, May 25 2012 | 8:45A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I have to say that I sort of had certain expectations about the FM1 platform when these boards showed up on my doorstep. I do a lot of heavy content creation and intense gaming, pushing the graphics to the limit of what they offer. I feared that benchmarking this platform was going to be like watching molasses roll up hill in January. I was, however, very surprised with the user experience I had with these FM1 motherboards. While they are aimed at those who have general computing needs, they pack a bit more punch than one might think. Seeing the A-Series architecture instantly shift CPU and GPU resources to where they are needed is impressive to say the least."

Palit GeForce GTX 680 JetStream 2 GB @ techPowerUp
     Fri, May 25 2012 | 8:11A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Palit`s GeForce GTX 680 JetStream offers several enhancements compared the NVIDIA reference design, like a quiet triple fan cooler, overclock out of the box and reduced power consumption. The best improvement is certainly that it comes at no price increase compared to the reference design."

Cougar Solution PC Case Review @ TestFreaks
     Thu, May 24 2012 | 4:09P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today at TestFreaks we will be looking at another PC case from Cougar called the Solution. This is a budget mid-tower case that can accommodate Micro-ATX and ATX sized motherboards. With the ability to house up to eight fans this case should keep any PC build nice and cool. One drawback is the Solution only comes with one 120 mm fan, otherwise you?ll need to supply the rest of the cooling which adds to the cost of your PC build. "

Hacks Decimate Diablo III Debut
     Thu, May 24 2012 | 4:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Diablo 3 players don't need any more bad news. The game is already staggering from a debut marred by enormous lag spikes, dropped games, and auction house errors. Now, widespread allegations of hacking are taking further chunks out of Blizzard's hide. This time though, there's an added twist: A significant number of those hacked claimed to be using Blizzard Authenticators. This has led to counterclaims that the victims must be lying, as well as a great deal of confused discussion over whether or not such a thing is even possible. To that end, there's something all of you need to understand up front. The Authenticator that Blizzard sells is not guaranteed proof against having your account hacked...

Asus Z77 Roundup @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, May 24 2012 | 3:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When doing all of our Ivy Bridge launch prep we spent a LOT of time benchmarking and testing a whole collection of boards. You guys have seen our reviews of the Intel and Gigabyte boards. When it came time to write about the four different Asus Z77 boards I realized that most of you are not going to want to read through a lot of information that we would cover over and over on each review. We decided to roundup all four of the boards and cover them together. This way we can get to the point a little quicker, saving you time, as well as giving us a chance to talk more about the differences between the variety of boards that we tested."
