REVIEW: HIS 7750 IceQ X Turbo @ PureOverclock
     Sat, Nov 24 2012 | 9:11A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We`ve also seen several cards from HIS, and have noted their ability to provide good products at affordable prices. The 7750 IceQ X Turbo is the latest value-oriented card in the HIS lineup, and it sports some great styling and an aggressive factory oveclock out of the box. Retailing for about $120, this card is rather affordable, and while we don`t expect it to be a gaming powerhouse, it could prove very enticing to gamers on a modest budget. Let`s take a closer look at the HIS 7750 IceQ X Turbo and see how it fares."

Rosewill RK-9100 Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sat, Nov 24 2012 | 9:11A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The individually backlit keys are very nicely done and the Cherry MX Blue switches make fun clicky sounds as you type away. Typing accuracy was very good on the RK-9100 and after some use you get used to the way the keys work. For example you don`t have to press them all the way down, so once you learn how the switch works you can really fly along. In games the keyboard was great and we loved the gaming mode that disabled the Windows and Application keys! Rosewill has done a very good job with the RK-9100 in terms of modes and we can`t wait to see what the next version will be able to do..."

Beginners Guides: Hard Drive Data Recovery
     Fri, Nov 23 2012 | 9:16P | Beginners Guides | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Killed a hard drive without backing up? Deleted your babies first photo and already emptied the recycling bin? Not to worry, you can probably recover your data with the help of this guide from PCSTATS.

"The loss of factory hard drive capacity seems to be an increasingly common occurrence with very large capacity (ie. 1TB) hard drives, but it's not specific to any one hard drive manufacturer. It can happen to brand new drives or existing hard drives full of data. In either case the data portion of the drive isn't generally affected. If a new or existing hard drive in your computer suddenly pops up with a capacity of 32MB, or another value equally small compared to the true drive size, don't freak out, the data should still be there."

Beginners Guides: How To Install/Remove AMD Socket FM1 CPU and Heatsink
     Fri, Nov 23 2012 | 9:15P | Beginners Guides | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com
AMD made several noteworthy accomplishments with its socket FM1 'Llano' processor, the most important being the integration of a graphics core directly onto a CPU die which substantially reduced motherboard complexity. Major architectural changes were also brought forth by AMD's Fusion family of processors, yet like the socket AM2/AM2+/AM3 processors that preceded it AMD kept the socket and heatsink mounting system totally compatible. Installing a socket FM1 AMD A8-series processor into a motherboard is not too difficult, unless you've never done anything like this before and in that case a little guidance is called for.

News: Why CS:GO is the best multiplayer shooter out there
     Fri, Nov 23 2012 | 10:42A | Gossip | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I picked up Counter-Strike: Global Offensive last week. I don`t know why it took me so longthe game came out in August, after all, and it costs only $15. Anyway, I was playing Battlefield 3 with a buddy of mine, and we were both getting slaughtered by a whole team`s worth of veteransyou know, those folks with the golden eagles next to their names and every unlock in their arsenals. I mentioned CS:GO in passing, and my friend asked, Why aren`t we playing that right now? So we did. We logged out, opened up Steam, bought CS:GO, waited for the download to finish, and jumped in. After a few hours, I rediscovered why CS is such a good gameand why other multiplayer shooters still pale in comparison."

News: Review: Intels Next Unit of Computing
     Fri, Nov 23 2012 | 9:24A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel has crammed a pretty capable PC into a box that will fit into the palm of your hand and dubbed it the Next Unit of Computing. With its Ultrabook guts, we think it should`ve been called the Ultrabox. Whatever you call it, though, the NUC offers a possible glimpse at the future of desktop PCs."

NZXT Phantom 820 Case Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Fri, Nov 23 2012 | 9:24A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NZXTs Phantom case really brought NZXT into the spotlight. The case was just awesome, a unique design, built in fan controller and much more. The case became so popular we saw many custom PC makers using it and component companies using it to demo their products. Since its release it is now available in red and even pink and NZXT released a value version of the case (Phanton 410). The big surprise from NZXT this year was the Switch 810. Another full tower case that again became a leader in the case market. Now just in time for the holidays we have what would happen if you took the best features from the Switch 810 and Phantom and put them into one case. The case is the Phantom 820 and it features 4 included cooling fans, integrated HUE lighting system, 4 channel digital fan controller, removable hard drive cages, USB 3.0 support and much more. Read on as we take a look at this case!"

Plantronics Voyager Legend Bluetooth Headset Review
     Fri, Nov 23 2012 | 9:24A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While Im typing these lines the upcoming Wing Commander/Freelancer/Privateer/Starlancer type Squadron 42/Star Citizen crowd-funded game has now officially breached the $4.500.000 line and is heading towards $5.000.000 at full speed so i really think that congratulations are in order for Chris Roberts, his crew and of course each and every single person out there who supported this game from even before the launch date (and of course everyone after that), whether it is just by spreading the word or by pledging either in the RS page or on KS (my thanks go to all regardless). This review however does not revolve around games or anything related with games since for the past month or so quite a few people have asked for a review of the latest Bluetooth wireless headset by Plantronics to hit the market called the Voyager Legend and of course we obliged."

Review: Corsair Dominator Platinum 4x4GB DDR3-2666 MHz CL10 @ Ocaholic
     Fri, Nov 23 2012 | 9:24A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we`re going to have a closer look to the next memory kit. This time it`s not two 8GB sticks but four 4GB modules from Corsair. The Dominator Platinum series is Corsair`s new ultra-high-performance DDR3 memory. They feature a new heatsink design, LED lighting with special effects as well as cherry-picked ICs. The one we are reviewing today is the second fastest of the line clocked at DDR3-2666 MHz and Corsair does this at CL10 timings. Spoiler: They can easily do DDR3-2800 MHz CL10."
