BeQuiet! Shadow Rock Topflow @ ocaholic
     Wed, Oct 17 2012 | 9:09A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Shadow Rock, BeQuiet! has a topflow cooler in its portfolio which is capable of removing up to 160 Watts of heat at adequate temperatures. The company also emphasized on the design aspects of this cooler. Therefore you`ll not only find nickel plated heatpipes but also a nickel plated base."

Posted by: STAFF
Meanwhile Biostar has quite a few motherboards in its product catalogue when it comes to Intels Z77 chipset. Now the manufacturer adds another model which is targeted at audiphiles. The board convinced us about the layout and design perspective in the previous preview, let`s see what this board has to offer from a performance point of view."

Borderlands 2 (Sleepless) Review
     Wed, Oct 17 2012 | 9:09A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I will even go a step further in my recommendation of Borderlands 2 by adding this. Despite playing for 29 hours and 40 minutes, with breaks only for food, water, and restroom visits (no coffee, yuck), I do not feel burned out by the game at all. I look forward to getting back in there and making my Zero as overpowered as possible, as well as getting another character or three started. After all, I`ve got a bunch of side quests still to finish, and can`t leave those sitting in the queue! Also the True Vault Hunter mode beckons me."

Canon Selphy CP900 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Wed, Oct 17 2012 | 9:09A | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Dedicated photo printers like the Canon Selphy CP900 have become something of a niche product. If you need a portable, dedicated 4x6 photo printer, that makes the CP900 one of your few options. Fortunately, it`s capable enough that it would probably be one of the better choices even if there were more competition."

iBuyPower Valkyrie CZ-17 Gaming Notebook Review
     Wed, Oct 17 2012 | 9:03A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Given all the frenzy around ultrabooks, Microsoft's Surface, and the low power potential of future chips like Haswell, you might think that desktop replacement-class laptops had fallen out of favor with modern laptop manufacturers. iBuyPower's CZ-17 "Valkyrie" is proof that they haven't -- and while its size and weight won't appeal to road warriors or anyone who needs a svelte portable, it packs a number of significant features into its chassis, at a price that won't break the bank...

Western Digital RAID Edition line
     Wed, Oct 17 2012 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"After perhaps a longer than expected wait, Western Digital has released a 4TB hard disk in the form of its new RE series. RE drives have always carried a 'faster' track geometry than their consumer units, and this same case applies here. A heavier head pack resulted in slightly higher seek times, but our sample was able to keep random access performance in check and turn in some of the best file copy performance numbers we've seen from a spinning disk to date. Here's hoping we see the 4TB capacity point trickle down to the Red and Green lines soon!"

GIGABYTE GA-A75-D3H FM1 Motherboard Review
     Wed, Oct 17 2012 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I'm still a fan of the AMD FM1 APU platform, and with the recent launch of the second generation APU 'Trinity' the FM1 platform is a very strong budget play. We could easily pair the GIGABYTE A75-D3H with the AMD A8-3870K APU and 8Gb of Corsair Vengeance memory for under $250 shipped to our door. Toss in a Kington HyperX 3K 120Gb SSD for only $64.99 and you can have yourself a fast system for about the price of the Intel Core i7 3770K processor alone..."

REVIEW: MSI Z77 MPOWER @ PureOverclock
     Tue, Oct 16 2012 | 11:17P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last June, we reviewed MSI`s Z77-GD65 and Z77-GD55. Both motherboards shined in performance, overclocking and value, showing they can hang with the big boys. Both motherboards overclocked as well as, if not better, than any of the higher-end boards. Today, we have another MSI Z77 offering in the lab named the Z77 MPower. The MPower sports MSI`s Military Class components, so we ask, Will the MSI Z77 Power live up to its Z77 cousin`s prowess? There is only one way to find out. Let`s get the Z77 MPower on the test bench and see it in action."

Cooler Master QuickFire Rapid & QuickFire Pro gaming keyboards
     Tue, Oct 16 2012 | 5:21P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cooler Master's QuickFire Rapid and QuickFire Pro target two completely different areas of the keyboard market. The Rapid is a sleek portable gaming device which can be carried just about anywhere while the Pro is geared directly towards enthusiasts that want a no frills peripheral at a great price. There is however have one similarity: both are equipped with high end Cherry key switches.

AMD Piledriver/Trinity A10-5800K Compiler Tuning @ Phoronix
     Tue, Oct 16 2012 | 5:18P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With the initial Linux results for the AMD A10-5800K Trinity APU now out of the way along with the Radeon HD 7660D graphics performance, in this article are some benchmarks looking at the impact of compiler tuning for the Piledriver cores using the common GCC compiler and testing different CPU micro-architecture targets."

Xclio Touch 787 Full Tower Case Review
     Tue, Oct 16 2012 | 4:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
" Holy fans Batman! That’s the first thing I thought when I opened the box and started to examine the case I have for review today. The Xclio Touch 787 Full Tower Chassis features ten, yes that’s 10, 120mm fans pre-installed for you. I’m thinking that’s more than enough to keep any system running cool no matter how many video cards and hard drives and whatever else you’ve got inside. The amount of fans could be considered a feature yes, but the Touch 787 also has a built-in touch panel for controlling all of those fans which is great because ten fans can get kind of loud. The Touch 787 also has a very unique hard drive mounting system, and plenty of room inside for even the largest video cards."

Windows 8 Device Onslaught
     Tue, Oct 16 2012 | 4:01P | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Microsoft has high hopes for Windows 8, its next generation operating system that represents perhaps the biggest change to the Windows ecosystem since Windows 95. Intel would call this release a "tock"; Microsoft calls it the future of computing, one in which mobile and stationary products are unified with a touch-friendly front-end that's supposed to be easy to navigate and easy on the eyes with a modernized look and feel. Alas, software is only half of the equation. It takes hardware to push a platform to its full potential, and there will be no shortage of Windows 8 devices when the OS drops in a couple of weeks...

Transcend SSD320 256GB SSD Review
     Tue, Oct 16 2012 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Today Chris follows up the Transcend SSD720 review with the mainstream model, the SSD320. The SSD320 pairs asynchronous flash with the same SandForce controller found in the flagship 720 model. This combination reduces the total cost, but does it also significantly reduce performance?"

REVIEW: Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti @ PureOverclock
     Tue, Oct 16 2012 | 1:51P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti is the latest in the Kepler lineup, and while it may share a similar naming scheme as the GTX 660 Ti, it has some very distinct differences, not the least of which is a considerably lower price tag. Costing about $149 for the reference design (and about $10 to $20 more for most partner cards), this creates a very interesting scenario, as it sits just above the Radeon 7770 in terms of price, so the question is whether this new Kepler card has the horsepower to compete in areas other than simply price. Nvidia has been extremely successful with the Kepler products, so will this card measure up? Can it beat the competing Radeon cards? Let`s dive in and answer those questions and more.? "

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.
