AMD Vishera FX-6300 & FX-4300 Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Sun, Nov 04 2012 | 9:21A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While the FX-8350 may have hogged the lion`s share of AMD`s Vishera launch coverage, a number of more affordable processors were introduced alongside it. The six core FX-6300 and quad core FX-4300 are both priced under $140 and should provide some real competition for Intel`s i3 series Ivy Bridge CPUs."

[Tech ARP] BIOS Option Of The Week - FPU OPCODE Compatible Mode
     Sun, Nov 04 2012 | 8:44A | 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 *FPU OPCODE Compatible Mode* setting."

Gear4 Angry Birds Black Bird Mini Speaker Review @ TestFreaks
     Sat, Nov 03 2012 | 5:32P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So what I have for review today doesnt need much introduction I think, at least I think you all should know what Angry Birds are by now! What I have for review is what could be called a mobile phone speaker, but its much more than that as it can be used with any device that has a standard audio port on it. The product is the Gear4 Angry Birds Mini Speaker, and its the Black Bird version. There are other versions of the speakers available including the new Angry Birds Space themed ones. If you like Angry Birds and you need an external speaker, then you certainly need to read this review"

SSD NEWS: SMART Storage Systems CloudSpeed 500 6Gbps Server Grade SSD Review
     Sat, Nov 03 2012 | 1:59P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Many organizations implement a rip and replace model using cheaper consumer-grade SSDs, and when they inevitably meet their demise under intensive workloads, they`re simply removed and replaced with new drives, increasing the cost of storage. Instead of moving up to much pricier solid state storage options, simply burning though cheaper drives makes more financial sense. SMART Storage System`s new CloudSpeed 500 is aimed to fill that gap with a just right combination of 3x the endurance of consumer drives at an attractive price."

SteelSeries Guild Wars 2 Peripherals @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Nov 03 2012 | 1:51P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The licensing people over at SteelSeires must stay very busy. A quick glance over on the SteelSeries website shows a whopping 15 different games that they have peripherals on. This doesnt even count special models with pro gaming team logos on as well. The LanOC Guild Wars 2 Guild (LOL) will be very happy to hear that SteelSeries introduced a full set of Guild Wars 2 peripherals at the games launch. Well we may or may not have intercepted a whole box of Guild Wars 2 goodies. We are going to take a look at each as well as the group together. Are you going to have to pick up your Guild Wars 2 peripherals for your next game? Lets take a look and see what they are all about."

Intel DH77DF Media Series Mini ITX Motherboard and Core i7-3770S CPU Review @MissingRemote
     Sat, Nov 03 2012 | 11:23A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intels third generation Core integrated processor graphics (IPG) chip, aka Ivy Bridge (IVB), got off to a slow start for us with a set of high-end CPUs not really intended for the home theater PC (HTPC). We still do not have one of the low power Core i3/i5 with HD4000 graphics on hand; now that they are available, H77 based Mini ITX motherboards are much more interesting since the updated platform controller hub (PCH) is required to fully utilize new features like PCIe 3.0 and DDR3-1600. There are several options to choose from, but none include the HTPC specific features like Windows Media Center infrared and HDMI CEC support via specialized headers and third-party hardware like the Intel Media Series DH77DF paired today with 65W Intel Core i7-3770S and i5-2400S IPGs. Not content to differentiate only on those features, it also offers mSATA via a Mini PCIe slot and Firewire (IEEE1394a) and addresses a traditional shortcoming in Intels previous Mini ITX boards support for 95W TDP CPUs. *"

Posted by: STAFF
Inno3D GTX 680 iChill Black Edition and GTX 660 Ti iChill Graphics Card Review @ HardwareHeaven.com One company very much out to appeal to an enthusiast audience, whether they are on a mainstream or high end budget is Inno3D. With their iChill range of cards we get custom PCBs and proper enthusiast cooling; 3 fans on a 660 Ti and factory installed liquid cooling on a GTX 680 sounds great to us. Today we take a look at both models in a selection of real world gaming tests including Battlefield 3, F1 2012 and Borderlands 2."

Mionix Sargas 900 Deskpad Review - XSReviews
     Sat, Nov 03 2012 | 6:34A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Mionix Sargas 900 Deskpad is a mousepad for your whole desk. As I slid it out of the massive box and unrolled it across my photography table, I realised it was the largest thing I`ve ever photographed for a review -- wider than a PCtower, wider than my widest mechanical keyboard and in fact, much larger than my photography table. Join me as we have take a wide-angle look at this innovatively massive mousepad. A link to the article would be much appreciated."

[DreamWare Computers] Cougar Challenger Gaming Case
     Fri, Nov 02 2012 | 6:36P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cougar, who`s only been on the market a mere five years, has started to develop a strong lineup of gaming cases, power supplies, fans and accessories behind their name. Their products are innovate and they aren`t out there to litter the market with more generic gaming accessories. One of their latest releases was the Challenger gaming case. The Challenger has a radical design and comes in your choice of three colours (two of which are very vibrant!). The Challenger fits into the sub-$100 gaming case market with it`s sticker price of around $72 CDN. With many features rivaling $100+ gaming cases, I`m excited to see if the Challenger will be a worthy alternative for when you don`t want to break the bank."

BitFenix OUTLAW Midi Tower Review
     Fri, Nov 02 2012 | 6:16P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Whether we admit it or not the very first thing we all take into account just before we buy something is the appearance factor and so if we don`t like the way something looks in all likelihood we are going to skip it and try to find a more suitable/better looking candidate. However sometimes we need to prioritize the things we want most from a product and so especially when we`re on a tight budget it`s more likely that we will choose features and performance over appearance. Our friends over at Bitfenix are well aware of this and although they launched their brand name with two rather high end PC cases (Colossus/Survivor) for the past year they`ve been manufacturing low-cost yet feature-rich solutions without emphasizing on appearance. The Outlaw by BitFenix is one such PC Case and today we will be taking a closer look at it."
