     Sun, May 06 2012 | 11:53A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you plan on buying an Intel Ivy Bridge processor we have an article that you have to read today! We have discovered an issue on Gigabyte motherboards that use the Intel 6-series of chipsets that is going to cause overclockers to cringe. Basically, the Gigabyte Z68 and P67 motherboards can`t overclock Ivy Bridge processors as the CPU multiplier is locked due to BIOS limitations. This means that Intel `k` sku processors like the Intel Core i7-3770K processor are stuck at a multiplier of 39 on these boards!"

Kingston HyperX T1 2800MHz DDR3 Memory Review on Ivy Bridge @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, May 06 2012 | 11:53A | Overclocking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Kingston Hyper T1 4GB 2800MHz memory kit that we looked at here today did a superb job on our motherboard that features the Intel Z77 Express chipset and the Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge processor. We ran this kit from 800MHZ with CL6 timings all they way up to 2800MHz with CL12 timings. It is pretty wild to see a 2000MHz spread with a memory kit, but this kit was up for the task..."

Intel SSD 330 120GB / 180GB review
     Sun, May 06 2012 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After the introduction of Intel's initially expensive SSD 520 Series, SSDs which were later reduced in price, the manufacturer now releases an even more affordable version in the shape of the SSD 330 series. With this move Intel joins a trend of steadily decreasing prices for solid state storage. This is a great development for consumers that also would like to enjoy the lightning fast speeds that SSDs provide, but have been hesitant thus far due to the high prices. So how does the Intel SSD 330 measure up to the SSD 520 and the rest of the SSD market? Hardware.Info reviews and compares the new arrival with the other current solid state drives.

Posted by: STAFF
We review the ASUS Maximus V GENE Z77 Motherboard. a smaller motherboard (mATX) yet a product that just oozes with dandy features and overclock potential. Next to the tweaking possibilities this is a ROG (Republic of Gamers) motherboard, and means extra enthusiast features alright.

     Sun, May 06 2012 | 6:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we`re looking at another Radeon monster card: the HIS 7950 IceQ Turbo. We call it a monster, not just because of its size (it is substantial), nor because of its low temperatures (they are cool), but also because it does provide gamers some serious horsepower under the hood at a respectable price. Gotta love that. Let`s take a closer look at the HIS 7950 IceQ Turbo and find out how well it stacks up against the current crop of contenders."

GIGABYTE HD7850 OC Review @ Vortez
     Sat, May 05 2012 | 4:19P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We`ve had a few WindForce cooling designs through our doors at Vortez and each one has impressed both with their attractive design but more importantly their performance. They ran very quietly and they kept the graphics card cool, even when overclocked. Today, we will be looking to see how it performs on an already cool running card, the HD7850. Is such a cooler needed on a cool running card you might ask. Well GIGABYTE have seen fit to overclock the GPU core on the HD7850 from 860MHz to 975Mhz which will add to the heat but will it be enough to justify the cooling ability of the WindForce design?"
