Gigabyte eSport LAN Wrap Up Coverage
     Tue, Jul 03 2012 | 2:08P | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last weekend we attended Gigabytes first ever eSports LAN Tournament. This gathering was designed to be a massive PC gaming event that features eight of the worlds best eSports teams going head to head in Riots League of Legends and a 24 player StarCraft 2 invitational tournament. The event was held over a three day period on the campus of California Polytechnic University of Pomona and hosted by Gigabyte (of course!) with appearances by some top pro-gamers. The event also hosted the LANFest sponsor the Bring Your Own Case where enthusiasts participated in mini-tournaments with tons of prizes. And when we say tons, it seemed like they were giving stuff away every hour in both the LANFest pavilion and Tournament area."

Kensington Absolute Power Dual USB Wall Charger Review
     Tue, Jul 03 2012 | 12:58P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Summer is perhaps the only time of the year when pretty much everyone goes on vacations and if you are like me and have more than just one cell phone, MP3/4 player, Bluetooth headset that means taking along with you a large number of AC power chargers and chances are that you will probably forget at least one of those in the process (i know i have in more than just one occasion). Kensington is a well-known brand name mainly because of the countless number of devices out there (including notebooks, LCD screens, NAS devices, HDD enclosures etc.) that feature their security slot but their product line is actually very long and also includes several gadgets that can help make your life a lot easier. One of those gadgets is their Absolute Power Dual USB Wall Charger which we have here with us today.

G1.Sniper M3 was designed into a micro ATX
     Tue, Jul 03 2012 | 12:58P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The G1.Sniper M3 was designed into a micro ATX form factor that sports Intel's latest Z77 Express chipset and supports the third generation of Intel's LGA 1155 "Ivy Bridge" processors. It is challenging to pack enough performance features and overclocking options onto a micro ATX footprint, but Gigabyte's G1.Sniper M3 has broken the code in this department. This $180 board includes a digital power phase design with auto voltage compensation, dual UEFI BIOS, and an onboard Creative Sound Core3D quad-core audio processor for rich, high-definition audio.

PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
