MSI Nightblade Z97 @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Oct 12 2014 | 8:34A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Every time I cover something Mini-ITX I talk about how great it is that we can build these monster PCs in such a small form factor. Even so, considering how sensitive they are to heat and bad wire management its not for everyone. If you dont know about every single part on the market it can be a little harder to pick out your components for a LAN rig as well. You dont know what will fit with what, larger builds are a lot more forgiving on all of these things. Well MSI might just have the answer to all of those issues. They have put together a Mini ITX barebones for gamers who know they want a small easy to carry rig. Their Nightblade comes with a variation on their Z97i Gaming AC motherboard that I recently reviewed, a case, slim DVD drive, and 600 watt power supply. You just need to bring your SSD/Hard drive, CPU, heatsink, and video card. The question is, does the Nightblade make things easier and also how well does it perform. Today Im going to take a closer look and put it through a few tests to see what its all about."

Cooltek Antiphon Airflow Review @ ocaholic
     Sun, Oct 12 2014 | 6:14A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Antiphon Airflow is the last Cooltek`s mid-tower, which offers plenty of interior space for standard ATX systems and apart from that it`s been equipped with sound absorbing material. Like the name suggest, this case provides a very good airflow thanks to the big mesh on the front. Not to forget: pricing is also very competitive."

NVIDIA GAME24 Coverage
     Sat, Oct 11 2014 | 4:51P | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
GAME24 is a 24 hour PC gaming event aimed at bringing gamers together to connect and share the experience of gaming. You could directly participate in the interactive livestream by judging competitions, chatting with developers and celebrities, or uploading your own content. Or better yet, you could attend one of the events in person.

There was definitely a lot of energy in the air and plenty of activity between gaming, watching the NVIDIA streaming feed, or talking to the NVIDIA staff."

Cooler Master Elite 130 Case Review
     Sat, Oct 11 2014 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Cooler Master Elite 130 is an inexpensive SFF (Small Form Factor) case for Mini-ITX motherboards, with one 5.25" external bay, two 3.5"/2.5" internal bays plus one 2.5" internal bay. The highlights of this product include the support for standard-sized ATX power supplies and dual-slot video cards and, therefore, targeted to users who want to build a compact gaming machine but don't want to spend a lot on a case. Let's see if it is worth picking this USD 50 case."

ASUS GeForce GTX 980 Strix review
     Sat, Oct 11 2014 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review and test the ASUS GeForce GTX 980 Strix. Armed with that h00t of a cooler, a custom PCB, quality components and a factory overclock this product is bound to perform, whilst staying very silent. Heck, the DirectCU II based cooler won't even spin with GPU temperatures up-to roughly 67 Degrees C. The card has 4 GB graphics memory, is energy efficient and factory overclocked for you. Oh and hey, it overclocks nicely as well to almost 1500 MHz on the GPU boost frequency.

Enermax ETS-N30
     Sat, Oct 11 2014 | 12:01P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ETS-N30 from Enermax might not blow you away with top-tier performance, but its affordable price will certainly be easy on your wallet. It even offers up lower noise levels and better performance compared to the stock heatsink bundled with today's processors. If you want lower noise levels with a bit more cooling power, the ETS-N30 might be just what you need.

"A small package that packs a punch! If I had to summarize the Biostar A68N-5000 mini ITX motherboard, that would be it. With the integrated AMD A4 Fusion Quad Core processor and ATI Radeon HD8330 Graphics, this motherboard at the heart of your HTPC (home theater personal computer), or as your everyday task machine, does an exceptional job just as it is intended."

ASUS Maximus VII Formula Z97 Motherboard Review
     Sat, Oct 11 2014 | 11:23A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Maximux VII Formula appears to be another feather in ASUS hat, continuing the performance tradition of their Formula board line. From outward appearances, there is not too many obvious differences between the Maximus VI Formula and Maximus VII Formula. ASUS did such a fine job with the VIs design that they really only had to make a few tweaks at the surface level. The biggest non under-the-hood change was the update to the CrossChill VRM cooler."

ICY DOCK ICYCube MB561U3S-4S 4 Bay External HDD Enclosure Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Sat, Oct 11 2014 | 9:05A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Storage, it always seems like we need more of it, especially with file sizes increasing for media and more importantly games. While some of you may have cases that give you ample space to load them up with hard drives there are others who have small form factor system or even work from a laptop where storage space is limited. There is where external hard drive enclosures come into place. Today we are taking a look at a pretty awesome 4-bay external hard drive enclosure that supports 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch SATA hard drives and has both USB 3.0 and eSATA connections. The enclosure I am talking about is ICY DOCKs ICYCube MB561U3S-4S. Lets load it up with drives and see what we can do with it."
