AMD Catalyst 12.9 Beta - HD 7970 Gaming Performance @ ocaholic
     Sat, Oct 13 2012 | 9:09A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It`s been a while since we last benched AMD Catalyst drivers which is our fault and not AMD`s. Anyway AMD repleased the Catalyst 12.9 Beta two weeks ago on the 26th of September so we are going to test it and compare it with no less that 12 previous Catalyst drivers. Spoiler Alert: As soon as we started to test the 12.9 Beta we noticed a performance increase over the previous 12.8 WHQL which is always a good sign."

CM Storm Ceres 400 Gaming Headset
     Fri, Oct 12 2012 | 4:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"At $49.99 MSRP, the Ceres-400 is the lowest priced headset offered under the CM Storm brand and comes in about $50 less than the top-of-the-line CM Storm Sirius 5.1 gaming headset that we reviewed previously. It lacks many of the features of high-end gaming headsets such as 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound support, but promises to provide high-class sound quality, a sturdy swivel microphone and a comfortable fit. Will this lower priced alternative bring enough firepower to compete, or will it be outgunned by its higher priced rivals?"

Xigmatek Dark Knight SD1283 Night Hawk Ed. Heatsink
     Fri, Oct 12 2012 | 3:15P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Here's what Frostytech has been able to find out. The black 'ceramic coating' on the Xigmatek Dark Knight SD1283 Night Hawk Ed. heatsink is described as "high thermal conductivity metal surface treatment" by its manufacturer; SAU Applied Materials . SAU Applied Materials is a Taiwan-based company which primarily focuses on LED related thermal products, for example the coating on thisLED MR16 light. About all we can say with certainty is that a rough black surface coating increases surface area somewhat and radiates heat more efficiently than a shiny aluminum surface.

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