Fractal Design Node 605 HTPC Case Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Thu, May 30 2013 | 10:14A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Not that long ago we took a look at Fractal Designs Node 304 case. This small form factor case was made for mini-ITX motherboards. Today we have the Node 304s big brother the Node 605. This case is designed the be a home theater PC case. It supports full ATX motherboards, which is great as many people repurpose old systems into home theater PCs. The front of the case has a nice brushed aluminum finish and inside you have room for up to 4 hard drives. Other features include USB 3.0 support, a card reader and two 120mm fans included. Is this the case for your next HTPC build?"

Fractal Design Node 605 Silent HTPC Case Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, May 30 2013 | 10:14A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Fractal Design really did a great job with the Node 605. The face of the case is a beautiful black aluminum design, which also has a way to keep the front I/O ports hidden in style. The whole HTPC concept may be questionable by some, but others (like myself) see the value and luxury behind it. The Node 605 really will look gorgeous beside your other HTPC components, and it certainly fits in with mine..."

HIS HD 7850 IceQ X Review @ Vortez
     Thu, May 30 2013 | 10:14A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HD7850 is perhaps the enthusiasts entry level model in the AMD lineup of current graphics cards. The 7700 series simply did not have the power to play at today`s most popular resolutions. With today`s sample priced at a very reasonable 155 and with free games thanks to AMD`s current promotion, the HD7850 is considered to be somewhat of a bargain."

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Video Card Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, May 30 2013 | 9:20A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The performance decrease that we expected to see from Titan was present, but not nearly as bad as we expected. For example in Metro: Last Light at 5760x1080 the GeForce GTX 780 was just 9% slower than the GeForce GTX Titan. At 2560x1600 and 1920x1080 screen resolutions that performance gap narrowed to just 4-6 percent, which is on the borderline of being significant. Our testing in Battlefield 3, Bioshock Infinite, Far Cry 3, Hitman: Absolution and Tomb Raider all showed similar results. Just for fun we also benchmarked the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 video card that came out in November 2010 and found that the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 nearly doubles the performance of that card. If you happen to have one of those cards and are looking for a significant performance jump before you update, you finally have a good option and it no longer costs $999..."

Vantec NexStar WiFi Hard Drive Dock Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, May 30 2013 | 9:20A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Using the Vantec NexStar WiFi dock is not much different than any other external dock when wired. Simply plug it into the USB 3.0 connector and the drive shows up just like a flash drive would. Access speeds through USB 3.0 is bottle-necked by the USB interface but still speedy as compared to USB 2.0. We used a 3Gbps Crucial M500 SSD in our test to make sure the drive wasn`t the limiting factor. We hit 422MB/s read and 402MB/s write speeds with this docking station and SSD combination. Wireless performance will vary widely depending on the connection type, signal strength and paired hardware..."

REVIEW: In Win Commander III 600W @ PureOverclock
     Wed, May 29 2013 | 4:27P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The In Win Commander III 600W comes with a unique military-themed design named for the famous Desert Fox moniker that started in WW2 attributed to German Field Marshal Erwin Rommel and then again resurfaced decades later during the Iraqi war in the late 1990s. While this unit isnt a behemoth like some weve seen of late, the Commander III 600W is 80PLUS Gold certified and comes with a price of $105. Seems pretty good so far, so let s take a closer look at this In Win power supply and see how it fares."

Eagle Tech Neptor Foldable Portable Bluetooth Keyboard Review @ TestFreaks
     Wed, May 29 2013 | 4:20P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I know many people still hate the on-screen keyboard on their devices, with tablets it has become easier but it still isnt the same as a regular hardware keyboard thats for sure. Many companies have come out with solutions to this problem and Eagle Tech is one of them with their recent launch of the Neptor ET-KB300BF-WH foldable Bluetooth portable keyboard which I have for review today. This keyboard is very stylish with leather inlays on the back of it, and of course it folds up to a small and portable size so you can just put it in your case or bag to take with you as needed. The keyboard is Bluetooth and Ive found it works with most devices, it has built-in rechargeable battery that should give you up to thirty hours of use on a single charge. When folded its about six inches long and then doubled when unfolded, so its not exactly tiny like other keyboards of this type on the market today, which is one of the things I like about it, its a nice big keyboard for usability purposes but not too big as to be overly bulky. So read on to learn more "

Enermax Triathlor FC 700W Power Supply Unit
     Wed, May 29 2013 | 4:20P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Summer may be the most exciting season for the majority of people around the world (i prefer winter slightly more) since it represents vacation time and of course endless dives in the deep blue sea (for some people anyways) but due to the extreme heat waves it`s also without doubt the worst season when it comes to pretty much everything electronic and mechanical from TVs, refrigerators and PC hardware up to heavy industrial, car and bike engines. The Summer period is also one of the main reasons as to why we always recommend high quality and performance CPU Coolers and power supply units to people and since June is almost upon us we decided to spend a little bit more time over some of the latest power supply units to hit the market such as the Triathlor FC 700W by Enermax."
