Palit GeForce GTX 760 Jetstream
     Sun, Aug 25 2013 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Palit’s Jetstream card improves almost everything about Nvidia's reference GeForce GTX 760. The upgraded cooler not only looks great but it also works extremely well, while the card's factory overclock offers about 8% more performance than the stock design, which was enough speed to outpace the Radeon HD 7950 in most of our tests.

GIGABYTE GTX 780 OC Windforce x3 (Rev 2.0) Review
     Sun, Aug 25 2013 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have seen GIGABYTE's fantastic Windforce cooler in many guises before, including the current Windforce x3 in our GTX 770 Windoforce x3 OC review so we know all too well how good the cooling design from GIGABYTE is. We have lauded over this cooler in the past but the competition just got sterner with other manufacturers employing similar techniques and designs making it harder for GIGABYTE to stand out from the crowd. It could be argued that you don't change what isn't broken however another popular proverb tells us that a rolling stone gathers no moss. Which category the GIGABYTE falls in we will examine throughout the review.

HP 2000-2b19wm Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Sun, Aug 25 2013 | 9:24A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you only have $300 to spend on a laptop, you don`t have to settle for a refurbished model or take your chances on eBay, but you will have to make some sacrifices. Case in point: With the HP 2000-2b19wm you get a brand new 15-inch notebook from a reputable retailer, but it`s not a very powerful notebook and its feature set is not what you`d call robust."

HP Z1 27-inch AIO Workstation Review:
     Sun, Aug 25 2013 | 9:02A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Mainstream All-In-One PCs have become increasingly more popular in recent years, but AIO workstations remain a rare breed. After all, workstations typically require more horsepower than your average AIO, and IT folks demand better access to a computer's internals than most ordinary AIOs allow. That makes HP's Z1 workstation all the more attractive perhaps: it's meant to give you the power and access of your big workstation box in a small footprint, with no (or few) compromises... That quad-core processor featured in the system is an Intel Xeon E3-1245v2... The CPU runs its four cores at 3.4GHz and has 8MB of cache. It supports error correction code (ECC) memory, which is ordinarily a tricky component to put in a slim computer, as ECC memory generally resides on full-height DIMMs. HP made room for the full-size memory in the Z1 series and installed 4GB DDR3-1600 ECC DIMMs into the system's four memory slots, for a total of 16GB of memory. Graphics are powered by NVIDIA's Quadro K3000M, which is designed specifically for AIO workstations. Hit the full review here for all the intricate details.

Google Chromecast Review: Yes, It's Worth Every Penny
     Sun, Aug 25 2013 | 9:01A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Google announced its Chromecast media streaming device last week and immediately caused quite a stir amongst technology enthusiasts. Not only was the Chromecast seemingly easy to use, but its low $35 price point made it attainable by virtually anyone. It didn't hurt that Google was throwing in a three month trial of Netflix with the device as well, but that deal was suspended almost as soon as it was announced due to overwhelmingly high demand. The Google Chromecast is a simple device to understand. It is basically a small HDMI dongle that physically plugs into an HDTV (or other display) and wirelessly connects to a local Wi-Fi network...

Borderlands 2: Tiny Tinas DLC Bunkers and Badasses Gameplay and Walkthrough @ TechwareLabs.com
     Sat, Aug 24 2013 | 5:43P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Welcome readers to another review of Gearboxes baby Borderlands 2. Today we get to see first hand at how Gearbox`s version of Dungeon and Dragons is and how well they can incorporate a board game into an FPS. First and foremost, I used the software that I did my previous review on to get some of these shots and to actually film my video. I hope you enjoy the scenery of this DLC because I know I did. Their mix of spooky and medieval definitely gave a brand new feel to an already amazing game."

Corsair Raptor M30 Review
     Sat, Aug 24 2013 | 4:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Raptor M30 is the new entry level gaming mouse from Corsair. It uses an optical sensor Avago ADNS-3090 with up to 4000 DPI, the same you usually find on higher end models like the M40 from the same manufacturer. The Raptor M30 also features a competitive price tag, which is reason enough for us to find out wether the rest is also convincing or not.

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