Gigabyte X79-UD3 Intel X79 Motherboard Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Thu, Mar 15 2012 | 8:56A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gigabyte?s lineup of Intel X79 or Sandy Bridge-E motherboards is only made up of four boards. For gamers there is the G1 Assassin 2, X79-UD7-OC for overclockers, and X79-UD5 for enthusiasts. This brings us to the X79-UD3 which is Gigabyte?s entry-level and least expensive Intel X79 motherboard coming it at $249. Sandy Bridge-E is Intel?s high-end platform and the X79 chipset is much improved over its P67/Z68 counterparts. You now have 40 PCI-Express 3.0 lanes and quad-channel memory. That means with this board you can easily throw in up to 32GB of DDR3 and run 4-way Crossfire or SLI right out of the box. Also this is the first time we will see Gigabyte?s 3D BIOS. Read on as we inspect the X79-UD3 Motherboard."

HP dm4t Beats Edition Notebook Review: Branding Gone Wild
     Thu, Mar 15 2012 | 8:56A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If performance was our only consideration this would be a positive review. Unfortunately for the dm4t it?s not, so this isn?t. The dm4t?s roots as an inexpensive consumer laptop are evident in the design and build quality. That?s not to say that either is bad ? in fact, both are good for a laptop that starts at $579, which is the base price of the normal dm4t. But our review unit isn?t priced at $579."

Intel Xeon E5-2600 Sany Bridge-EP Server Processors @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Mar 15 2012 | 8:56A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since each of the Intel Xeon E5-2660 processors has eight cores plus hyper-threading, the Intel Grizzly Pass server has a total of 32 threads of processing power. When the Windows task manager was opened up for the first time, we couldn`t help being impressed by the look of 32 threads. It`s hard to imagine that just a few short years ago we were oohing and aahing over dual core processors..."

2600 MHz with G.Skill 64 Gigabyte Quad-Channel by Hiwa at CeBIT 2012 @ ocaholic
     Wed, Mar 14 2012 | 4:43P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
During this year CeBIT, which has taken place last week, our overclocker Hiwa managed to reach astonishingly high memory frequencies using G.Skill memory modules. This time he put his hands on a 64 Gigabyte, 32 Gigabyte and 16 Gigabyte quad channel memory kits and overclocked them way above 2`700 MHz."

AMD Radeon HD 7750 1GB Reference Video Cards in CrossFire
     Wed, Mar 14 2012 | 4:43P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
3DMark 11 fired up and froze straight away. All of a sudden I found myself with something that was going to become real boring, real quickly. Of course it then clicked that just because we don`t have a CrossFire connector it doesn`t mean CrossFire can`t be used. Looking at the AMD website for the HD 7750 you`ll find that CrossFire is of course supported on the model and I figured why not pair it up with our HIS HD 7750 we looked at and see what kind of performance we can get. It would be interesting to see what would go down with CrossFire scaling on this lower end model which carried with it no CrossFire bridge."

ASUS RT-N66U Wireless-N900 Gigabit Router @ Benchmark Reviews
     Wed, Mar 14 2012 | 4:43P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Building on the success of the RT-N56 Dual Band WiFi router, ASUS has been hard at work trying to create the next `next-best` wireless router. Today, Benchmark Reviews brings you the ASUS RT-N66U Dual Band Wireless-N900 Gigabit Router. As you will see in the images that follow, the ASUS RT-N66U certainly looks the part and is different in that way from 99% of routers on offer today. The RT-N66U has three high power external antenna to allow simultaneous 2.4GHz and 5GHz signals to run at up to 450Mb/s concurrently, this allows you to stream HD content to your media devices (5GHz) while you enjoy uninterrupted wireless internet (2.4GHz). On the box ASUS claim that the RT-N66U has Leading giga-level throughput over 900Mb/s but as with most claims this doesn`t always come true, our testing threw out some good numbers but nowhere near ASUS` claims. The ASUS RT-N66U has two built in USB 2.0 ports that allow you to share printers and USB storage over LAN and WAN, and also allows you to share a 3G/4G internet connection."

Corsair Vengeance M60 and K60 Review
     Wed, Mar 14 2012 | 4:43P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
loved the weighted scroll wheel because it felt like I had better control; it didn`t feel cheap nor did it have the horrible grinding scroll sound when going through several pages of information. The sniper button was by far my favorite aspect of the entire mouse. I`m not much for sniping and getting many headshots because I never tend to lock-on. By allowing me to slow down my motions, the sniper button really helped me grab a lot more head shots than normal and enabled me to actually attempt to snipe things I normally wouldn`t have bothered to snipe. It felt a little like cheating, but I liked it!"

Dell M110 Projector Review @ Tech-Reviews.co.uk

A small, lightweight, high-definition multimedia projector that you can simply pop into your bag and take with you on the road? We`ll be very impressed if this is the case for the Dell M110 projector. Let`s run it through some tests and see how it performs.* ** * **"

CM Storm Quickfire Rapid Keyboard @ Benchmark Reviews
     Wed, Mar 14 2012 | 4:25P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although mechanical keyboards have been making a comeback in recent years many of the design are quite bulky in comparison to their rubber dome counter parts. Looking to fill this area of the market Cooler Master designed the Storm QuickFire Rapid mechanical keyboard using the venerable Cherry MX Blue switches, fit into a comfortable 14 x 5 design. This makes the QuickFire Rapid perfect for LAN parties or mobile workers who may want a better typing experience than their laptops are able to offer. Benchmark Reviews will evaluate if the Cooler Master QuickFire Rapid is the perfect pint size keyboard or if corners were cut in order to meet size and price goals."

24nm Flash SSD Faceoff - SanDisk Extreme Retake and Plextor M3 Pro
     Wed, Mar 14 2012 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
On February 28th we published our first review of the SanDisk Extreme 240GB, the first 24nm flash drive on the market with a SandForce flash processor unit. In the review we focused mainly on the low price point of the drive since the performance was still very close to the large number of Team SandForce drives using 25nm IMFT flash. What we didn`t know at the time was our test systems were compromised in some way. I would love to give an explanation, but I honestly don`t have one. It wasn`t just the primary test system, but both identical systems and even a fresh build system based on another chipset, the older P67 test rig. To make matters worse, even a brand new build based on another company`s Z68 board did the same thing. After spending 18 to 20 hours a day working on the issue Chad Sebring chimed in with an idea, look at the drivers. All of the systems were using the same chipset drivers, but we were trying different RST drivers. After downloading a different set of drivers from a different web page we had TRIM again. It`s safe to say that for the next couple of weeks I will hate computers. I HATE YOU COMPUTERS!!!"

A Futurelooks News Flash - The NZXT. Premium Cables Starter Kit Reviewed

Posted by: STAFF
a post to your own news section would totally be appreciated. If we`re sending our news to the wrong place, we apologize. Just send us a message with the correct address to the address below. Don`t forget that,Futurelooks checks out something that all lazy cable managers will want to use in their next build ... * * *The NZXT. Premium Cables Starter Kit Reviewed* * * In a nutshell, NZXT. has taken their most popular cables from their excellent sleeved cabling extension line and have bundled them into a kit that will get the main cabling trouble spots in a system taken care of. In this kit are high quality, individual sleeved, cable extensions for your 8-pin EPS, 24-pin ATX, and 6 and 6+2 pin VGA. All the cables are individually sleeved and finished and as a result, they bend easily and can be twisted in ways that regular power supply cables can?t. *"

The card is a beast as it is huge, look at the review right here"

Canon PowerShot A4000 IS Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Wed, Mar 14 2012 | 4:01P | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Under the right conditions, the Canon PowerShot A4000 IS is a camera capable of capturing some very nice photos, although you`ll quickly lose detail if you set its ISO too high. Its optically stabilized 8x zoom lens is impressive when you consider the under-$200 price, and the 16-megapixel camera can record video 720p30 HD video."

Samsung Galaxy Note Review @ Tech-Reviews.co.uk

Posted by: STAFF
We`ve got the Samsung Galaxy Note to review for you today. Samsung say that it`s the Ultimate on-the-go device and to say that it is powerful is probably the biggest understatement this year. The Galaxy Note sports a gigantic 5.3-inch HD Super AMOLED display, a 1.4GHz dual-core processor and takes stunning photos and video with its 8MP Full HD 1080p camera.* ** * **"

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.
