Corsair Force Series GT 180GB Solid State Drive Review
     Tue, Apr 10 2012 | 2:42P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the last couple of weeks we`ve seen some pretty amazing SSDs. You know when you are doing one thing, but really want to work on something else? That is what I`ve been going through these last couple of weeks. The reason why is because Corsair has taken another approach in order to achieve modest performance improvements. We`ve seen the SandForce SF-2282 controller used on a retail consumer drive one other time, but it`s implementation was identical to the SF-2281 configuration. The SF-2282 is identical to the 2281 in every way except one, the number of byte lanes, moving from 8 to 16. We`ve speculated for some time that the SF-2282 was used on most if not all 480GB models, but we`ve yet to see one to confirm. Ironically we`ll have our first 480GB drive in the lab tomorrow."

Corsair Vengeance K90 & M90 MMO/RTS Keyboard and Mouse Review @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Apr 10 2012 | 2:02P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We really liked the looks of the K90 keyboard and the floating keys made clean out dust, dirt, and the random Doritos crumb a breeze. The backlighting is great with three levels of brightness and the ability to turn it off. Eighteen `G` keys to record on the fly or software driven macros with three memories for a total of 54 is what we would call overkill but nice if you are a macro fan. The Cherry MX Red keys on the K90 are top of the line with light activation and subtle audio click. Putting a 20KRO PCB in the K90 takes advantage of the maximum simultaneous key press USB can handle and should guarantee no key presses are missed in the heat of battle..."

Asrock Z77 Extreme6 Socket 1155 Motherboard Cooler @ Pro-Clockers
     Tue, Apr 10 2012 | 1:27P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Asrock wants to remain in the mouths of buyers after the successful release of the X79 Extreme9. And in order to do you they would have to put out another great board. And we do believe they have done so with the upcoming Z77 Extreme6. Looking at it for the first time all I could think about was the X79. A awesome looking motherboard with features galore. But with all the new motherboards being released is this a keeper? We will see."

Corsair Vengeance M90 Gaming Mouse Review @ TechwareLabs
     Tue, Apr 10 2012 | 1:21P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The M90 is a good first product geared toward MMO and RTS gaming. They also have a sister product the M60 geared toward FPS games. The M90 has an aluminum metal frame\base that gives it solid feel without a lot of weight. The brushed aluminum also is a nice contrast to the rugged black plastic. The mouse has a nice ergonomic shape that makes using the mouse for long periods of time comfortable."

Aperion Audio Zona Wireless Speaker System Review @MissingRemote
     Tue, Apr 10 2012 | 12:41P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The prospect of wiring surround or multi-zone loudspeakers is often fraught with difficulty and may be a job best left to someone who can open up walls, fish speaker wire and install a wallplate with wire terminals. Instead of hiring a costly contractor or spending several hours and dollars in parts, Aperion Audio presents the Zona Wireless Speaker System which promises to lift the burden of wires from us. After our positive experience with Aperion Audio?s Intimus 4T speakers, our interest in Aperion Audio?s wireless solution was piqued. *"

Posted by: STAFF
The Intel Z77 chipset will be released by the end of this month, but we had the privilege of getting the Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H for a first look article.

nMedia HTPC 7000B SFF Case Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Tue, Apr 10 2012 | 8:10A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The incorporation of better quality components into smaller enclosures has led nMedia to create the HTPC 7000B. As with most sub-ATX cases, it looks like it would be right at home sitting next to your amp or HDTV but in a move that bucks several trends from years past, it also focuses upon cooling those hot-running, high end GPUs and CPUs.* *"

[Tech ARP] BIOS Option Of The Week - Delay DRAM Read Latch
     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 4:51P | BIOS | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meager beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition. Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend. This week, we will be taking a look at the Delay DRAM Read Latch setting."

[DreamWare Computers] Silverstone KL04 Mid Tower Case
     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 4:49P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Looking to breathe new life into the old Kublai mid-end case series, Silverstone has recently released the KL04 case. The KL04 is actually based off the same chassis design as the more expensive TJ04-E - something we also saw them do with the TJ08-E and PS07 mATX cases. I have the KL04 here today and am excited to see what Silverstone has done with this series."

[DreamWare Computers] Samsung NX200 Compact System Camera
     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 4:48P | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Compact system cameras are still relatively new comers to the camera market. Although they`re been around for a few years they still haven`t been around long enough to gain the recognition of compact cameras and SLRs - which have been around quite a few decades compared to compact system cameras. Samsung has been in the compact system camera market for a few years now with their NX series. You may remember that a couple years ago I actually had the NX100 on my test bench. The latest compact system camera to emerge from Samsung is the NX200 - which has just arrived here today."

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
