AMD FX-8120 CPU Review @ Madshrimps
     Thu, Jul 05 2012 | 9:23A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 8-core FX-8120 CPU from AMD gets near the 2500K performances in heavy multithreaded apps and thanks to its unlocked features, we can overclock it near 50% (depending on the quality of the batch). Thanks to the latest price reductions and promotions, it gets into the area of mainstream CPUs, making it attractive for people that do not want to spend excessively on their new upgrade."

ASUS Maximus V Extreme @ ocaholic
     Thu, Jul 05 2012 | 9:23A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Maximus V Extreme, is ASUS` new flagship model regarding Intels latest Z77 chipset. The guys over there at ASUS ROG put a lot of new features on the board. On the paper it looks like they`ve moved their flagship ROG board to another level (yet again?). So it`s quite understandable that we can`t wait to have a close look at this product."

Antec Bias LED Lighting Kit @ Pro-Clockers
     Thu, Jul 05 2012 | 9:16A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Antec is known for making great cases and solid power supplies. Today we are taking a look at a new product from Antec that is meant to help reduce eyestrain and fatigue in low light settings. If you work on your computer at night and are getting headaches from staring at the bright screen then this might be the product for you. When this product came in to review I almost missed it in the shipping box. It came in an unassuming box that didn`t have any flashy designs or logos. "

Apple Tax Part II: iMac vs. Windows All-in-Ones
     Thu, Jul 05 2012 | 9:03A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Apple updated its notebook lineup earlier this month we were eager to find out how well the new MacBook Air stacked up next to a couple of Ultrabook alternatives. Turns out the so-called “Apple Tax” wasn’t as much of an issue as Apple detractors often claim. Now we’re taking a look at another area of the PC market that’s experiencing healthy growth in recent times, comparing Apple’s 27-inch iMac to all-in-one alternatives from the likes of Dell, HP and newcomer Vizio. As we’ve said before, we don’t expect this comparison to be representative of the entire Apple Tax argument, but it will help paint a better picture as we contrast it with our previous findings.

Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700 Review
     Thu, Jul 05 2012 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We recently stepped you through the details of Asus' lower cost Transformer Pad 300 and felt that it was a fine alternative for users looking to save a few pesos. But let's be honest, somebody has to compete with Apple's new iPad and its ultra-high resolution Retina display. Though the Transformer Prime's Super IPS+ display certainly competes in overall brightness and contrast, pixel density of the panel at its native 1280x800 resolution couldn't compete with Apple's super-tight 2048x1536 on the iPad. Alas the innovation and refinement beat goes on with Asus thankfully, and the all new Transformer Pad Infinity we'll be showcasing here today offers a new 1920x1200 full HD Super IPS+ display to rival the iPad, as well as some goosed-up internals like a faster NVIDIA Tegra 3 4+1 core SoC (System on a Chip), improved camera performance and a few other trimmings...

Thermaltake Armor Revo - Snow Edition @ Techreaction.net
     Wed, Jul 04 2012 | 4:05P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the lack of cases on the market that are not black or black with accents, it is refreshing to see that Thermaltake has stepped outside the norm and put out a Snow Edition Armor Revo chassis. The Revo sports a fan controller that supports up to 5 fans, two USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 connections. Thermaltake has also added an HDD docking station on the top of the Revo, which supports one 3.5 or 2.5 drive. To add to the aesthetics of the Revo, Thermaltake has also added wing shaped aluminum bezels on the front to help it stand out and give you the feel of actual armor.The Revo also boasts a massive air cooling system, along with the option to place a full water cooling setup inside. Now, if we have blown enough smoke your way, lets get to reviewing this case and see if it stands up to all the claims. Read on "

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
