SSD NEWS: OWC Mercury Accelsior 480GB PCIe SSD Review - First Upgradeable PCIe SSD Hits The Streets
     Wed, May 09 2012 | 9:32A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It was only a matter of time before the idea of expandable storage was introduced into the world of PCIe SSDs and, although we have seen a few prototypes in the last year, none have quite made it to market just yet. Our analysis of the OWC Mercury Accelsior 480GB PCIe SSD not only opens the possibility of upgradeable capacity sizes, but also, it just so happens to be only the second consumer targeted PCIe SSD on the market right now and is both Mac and PC `plug and play` compatible."

Thermaltake Frio Extreme CPU Cooler
     Wed, May 09 2012 | 9:00A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Frio Extreme follows a trend that we are seeing around here regularly. And that is using two towers of fins to add to the overall surface of the cooler to better perform on an overclocked processor. Just recently we tested the Phanteks TC14PE which was an outstanding cooler but we really wanted to see if the Frio Extreme could take it down as one of the best coolers we have tested this year.

Nikon Coolpix P510 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Wed, May 09 2012 | 8:06A | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Nikon Coolpix P510 is the successor to the company`s popular 36x P500. The P510 ups the zoom factor to 42x, although it does so by sacrificing some coverage on the wide-angle side of things. The camera adds a built-in GPS and ups the resolution to 16 megapixels, but is otherwise similar to the P500."

NZXT Tempest 410 Elite Mid-Tower Case Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Wed, May 09 2012 | 1:31A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The NZXT Tempest 410 Elite Mid Tower adds a bit of intrigue into the gaming realm. The Tempest 410 Elite has some unique features that set it apart from many of the other cases. It is an identical twin to it`s brother, the Tempest 410, except the Elite comes with a full sized window to show off all of the goodies inside. Comparatively, the Elite still retains the two touch powered 120mm intake fans. These fans remove easily to expose a 8 front loading 3.5 HDD bays. The top of the Elite houses a hidden tray that has enough room to fit extra thumb drives or cables. The backend of the top is removable and exposes an area that can house up to two 140mm fans or a dual radiator liquid cooling setup. Also included is a rear 120mm fan. The Elite features a completely tool free rail design for both the 3.5 and 5.25 bays. GPU support is up to 315mm when the top HDD bays aren`t in use.///"

     Wed, May 09 2012 | 12:34A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nvidia has crammed two GK104 graphics chips together on a single card, which caused us to write a tremendous number of words, many of them explaining why we can`t really be sure our performance results are correct. Turns out to be more interesting than it sounds, really."

Posted by: STAFF
"Mobile devices are just as at risk. The phone creator gives you reduced permissions to attempt to prevent you from installing untrusted code. If you have ever heard of someone jailbreaking their phones then you know that there exists a process to remove admin privileges from the phone creator and give them to yourself. Jailbreakme.com allows you to seize permissions from your iOS device just by browsing a website -- imagine a different website which gave the permissions to someone other than you?"

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