Corsair Accelerator 30GB SSD Cache Drive Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Fri, Oct 19 2012 | 9:09A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair`s Accelerator 30GB is being introduced into a market that`s found respect for once-lowly cache drives. Ringing in at just $60, this SSD isn`t meant as a stand alone solution since it is supposed to link up with your hard drive and provide increased system responsiveness."

Corsair Dominator Platinum 2133Mhz 16GB Review
     Fri, Oct 19 2012 | 9:09A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
What Corsair has to offer with this set of modules is a kit that will run with the best kits out on the market at stock speeds yet offers the ability to really push the limits of your CPU`s memory controller when it comes time to overclock them for added performance margins. Top that off with a unique industrial look and the ability to use the light bar feature to customize the modules and you have a kit that delivers excellent performance while looking great. At 2133Mhz, the Dominator Platinum modules are by no means a slow kit. Overclocking yielded a 15% boost in clock speed to 2481Mhz using timings of 9-12-11-30 and 1.695v. A pretty decent boost all the while running Cas 9 at close to 2500Mhz."

SanDisk Extreme 240GB SSD Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Thu, Oct 18 2012 | 11:17P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
* *In a market filled with high end SSD`s, it may at first look like SanDisk`s new Extreme 240GB would have a tough time of things. However, with a price of under $190 and performance that competes with some of the best drives currently available, it is sure to stand out for all of the right reasons.* *"

QNAP TS-869L @ techPowerUp

Posted by: STAFF
QNAP recently released their new TS-x69L series which, in essence, is the economical alternative to the Pro series, but with almost identical performance because the same hardware is used. In this review we will evaluate the TS-869L NAS, which can take up to eight HDDs for up to 32 TB of storage!"

ROCCAT Savu Mid-Size Hybrid Gaming Mouse Review
     Thu, Oct 18 2012 | 1:51P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although once upon a time (roughly 2 decades ago) most of us used OEM keyboards and mouse sets (and were quite content) nowadays there are more of those products in the market than one can count aimed mostly towards gamers and professionals who require the highest possible accuracy and speed. Still the sheer number of such solutions currently available in the market along with their specifications and designs make it quite impossible for anyone to make the right choice so personally i choose to trust just a handful of all the PC peripheral manufacturers out (namely the proven ones) there and naturally ROCCAT is amongst them. So for the past 2 weeks we`ve been rather thoroughly testing their latest Savu Gaming Mouse which although not the best in their gaming mouse line still it proved to be more than a decent solution for people who are not after the best possible performance."

Samsung 840 Pro 512GB SSD Full Review - Samsung Ups the Ante
     Thu, Oct 18 2012 | 11:06A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With a faster, more optimized ARM Cortex R4 controller and NAND flash pushing data at 400 Mbps per channel, the Samsung 840 Pro has risen the bar yet another notch even while the competition was still trying to catch up to the 830 Series. If pricing can achieve parity with other SSDs out there, Samsung is sure to have a winner on its hands. The non-pro variant of the 840 will utilize TLC flash, which should offer a decent reduction in cost/GB for a minor dip in performance and endurance, which promises to make some form of 840 available to anyone seeking performance in the 100,000 IOPS range."

Nanoxia Deep Silence One Chassis review
     Thu, Oct 18 2012 | 9:25A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,We review the Nanoxia Deep Silence 1 chassis. Nanoxia is a relatively new player in the chassis market, based in Germany they just released their Deep Silence 1, a very impressive chassis with some pretty terrific features. The DS1 comes in three models: Deep Silence 1 Silver, Deep Silence 1 Anthracite and Deep Silence 1 White. We test the standard black with its great looks and sound dampened version. As you`ll notice very little is actually regular about this chassis, is it true what they say about German build quality?"

CM Storm Scout 2 @ Techreaction.net
     Thu, Oct 18 2012 | 9:09A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The highly anticipated recreation of the benchmark in LAN gamer cases, Scout 2 offers refinements on its predecessors design. These refinements are bolstered by improved steel reinforced carrying handles, bolted to the core structure. Front console connections have been updated to USB 3.0 while offering protection from adverse travel conditions with hidden sliding cover. Support for current high-end hardware is greatly increased by a removable HDD cage that supports the massive VGAs in todays market. Now lets throw it up on our review table and see how well it does. Grab a beer and read on!"

Cooler Master NotePal I300 Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Thu, Oct 18 2012 | 9:09A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We all know that Cooler Master has no shortage of products meant to aid in the cooling of your favorite laptop. We have reviewed many over the years and today we will be adding another one to the collection. The new NotePal I300 is a simple but well refined cooler that is thin and very lightweight. The 160mm fan sitting in the middle is what will separate this cooler from the many in the same class or price range."

Posted by: STAFF
Cooler Master is well-known for their cases and CPU coolers, but they also offer some very high quality power supplies. We have taken a look at their Silent Pro Hybrid and Silent Pro Gold units in the past and today we are taking a look at the newer Silent Pro M2 series.

EVGA SuperNOVA NEX1500 Classified 1500W Power Supply Review
     Thu, Oct 18 2012 | 9:05A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The EVGA SuperNOVA NEX1500 Classified 1500W PSU delivered very good voltage regulation, clean outputs on the three primary rails, and 80 Plus Gold efficiency while delivering up to 1650W. The NEX1500 uses all modular cables, which are color coded and sleeved. Note: Each individual wire is sleeved, not just the cables. And speaking of cables, the NEX1500 comes with eight dedicated PCI-E cables, each fitted with two 6+2 Pin PCI-E connectors. And there are three more 6 pin PCI-E connectors for a grand total of 19! The heavy duty power cord uses 12AWG wire. And lets not forget the industrial grade handle and a 10-Year warranty."

REVIEW: ROCCAT Savu Gaming Mouse @ PureOverclock
     Wed, Oct 17 2012 | 11:17P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ROCCAT Savu looks to continue the innovative features such as EasyShift[+] that we`ve previously seen, and if the past is any indication, then we expect big things from ROCCAT here with the Savu. And while ROCCAT may not be quite as well known in North America as some established industry heavyweights, they`ve made quite a splash in Europe, and seem to be looking to expand on this side of the pond, complete with a healthy pedigree to back up their gaming lineup. With a price tag of about $70, can the ROCCAT Savu stack up well in a competitive market? Let`s take a closer look and find out."

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