Posted by: STAFF
The MSI Z77A-G45 Gaming motherboard is a standard ATX form factor board and supports the newest Ivy Bridge processors and Sandy Bridge. The Z77A-G45 Gaming board is targeted at people who are looking for high end features at a mainstream price point. MSI has included solid cap capacitors and super ferrite core chokes in the design and gives it a military class III rating. The higher quality components used to build the board allow it to achieve solid overclocks and resist deterioration. MSI designed the Z77A-G45 Gaming board to provide an excellent all around experience, there is extra space between the PCI-E 3.0 slots to provide airflow between video cards, DDR 3000 support, a Killer E2205 NIC card built in, as well as the Sound Blaster Cinema audio system.

REVIEW: Roccat ISKU Keyboard and Kone XTD Mouse @ PureOverclock
     Sun, Apr 28 2013 | 6:39A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Roccat Kone XTD and ISKU/FX bring some very cool features like the ROCCAT Easy-Shift[+] button. This allows you to have an unprecedented amount of macros as well as control over how you game and/or use your keyboard and mouse. The ROCCAT talk lets the Kone XTD and ISKU/FX talk between each other allowing them to function in unison, making your gaming experience more enjoyable. The Apuri is designed to help free up cable clutter and reduce mouse cable dragging lag. Its USB hub capabilities are gravy and allow it to serve as your peripherals` central hub. These three devices could make for a potent combination."

Buffalo MiniStation Thunderbolt SSD HD-PATU3 Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Sat, Apr 27 2013 | 4:27P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Buffalo MiniStation Thunderbolt SSD HD-PATU3 Review @ HardwareHeaven.com So it is always great when we see a portable drive that contains an SSD and uses USB 3.0, both of which should remove the USB 2.0 connector and mechanical drive bottlenecks which we regularly see. Thats where the MiniStaion SSD Edition enters, but Buffalo havent stopped there, they also provide a Thunderbolt interface for Mac users (and those who have an appropriate motherboard for PC)."

AZiO KB577U Levetron MECH5 Gaming Keyboard @ Benchmark Reviews
     Sat, Apr 27 2013 | 12:22P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nowadays, it seems that the term gaming is loosely associated with cheap, low quality, general-purpose peripherals. What then separates the notorious gaming-grade products from the rest? Most modern gaming keyboards feature mechanical keys in an attempt to prevent accidental key-presses and ghosting, issues that gamers are commonly faced with. Macro keys are also desired by gamers, especially those of the MMO genre. Fortunately, many of these features are more or less standard on today`s gaming keyboards; the manufacturers must now appeal to gamers` sense of look and feel instead. With the MECH5, Azio has done an amazing job incorporating many of the features required for today`s gamer. They go a step further by encasing it in a durable, very good-looking body, something that you can tell was intended for gaming by looks alone. In this article, Benchmark Reviews evaluates the AZiO KB577U MECH5 keyboard`s performance to determine if it deserves its gaming badge and is worth your hard earned money..."

REVIEW: MSI GTX 650 Ti Boost Twin Frozr OC @ PureOverclock
     Sat, Apr 27 2013 | 6:39A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we?re examining the MSI GTX 650 Ti Boost Twin Frozr OC model. Talk about a mouthful try saying that three times quickly. In any event, we?ve seen several Twin Frozr models from MSI in the past, and have always come away impressed by the excellent temperatures and low noise, not to mention overclocked goodness and resulting performance. Will today prove similar? Can the MSI GTX 650 Ti Boost Twin Frozr OC shove aside the Radeon 7790 and capture the minds and hearts of budget-conscious gamers? Maybe if we?re lucky, we?ll see some unicorns and mermaid tears in the process. Melodramatics aside, let?s dive in and see how things shake out.

SteelSeries Apex [RAW] Gaming Keyboard Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Fri, Apr 26 2013 | 11:45P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SteelSeries removed all the bells and whistles from the regular Apex keyboard and released a [RAW] version of the peripheral without the spare USB ports, cloth-wrapped cable, and selective illumination by zone, among other things. However, it kept the basics: 17 macro keys (that can store 34 macros), the excellent configuration software, and the stylish angled design. Let`s describe it first and then see how this less sophisticated Apex fared."

     Fri, Apr 26 2013 | 5:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When you buy a new video card that is different from your current video card, usually you have two options: sell the old video card or leave it collecting dust inside a closet. If your old video card uses an NVIDIA graphics processor, a third option is available: install and configure it as a dedicated PhysX processor. Let`s see how this is done."

Intel Chipset Codenames Cross-Reference Table @ Hardware Secrets
     Fri, Apr 26 2013 | 12:34P | Chipset | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Even for those of us that work daily in the high-tech industry it is hard to keep track of all the codenames Intel uses for their chipsets and then trying to remember what commercial name Intel gave each one. For the average user it is really complicated trying to understand exactly what product an article or review posted on an enthusiast-oriented media is talking about, especially when they are using the codename instead of the final product name. In order to help everybody out there (including ourselves), we decided to compile a series of quick cross-reference tables containing all the codenames Intel uses for their chipsets and the actual product name. Enjoy."

ASUS RAIDR 240 GB - Picture Madness @ Ocaholic
     Fri, Apr 26 2013 | 12:22P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the RAIDR ASUS has their first ever SSD in their portfolio. The company decided to develop this enthusiast product under their ROG brand and what you get is quite a decent little PCI Express SSD. There are two SandForce SF-2281 controllers and 240 Gigabyte of Toggle NAND from Toshiba, which should boast up to 830 MB/s sequential read and up to 810 MB/s sequential write speeds. Regarding random IOPS, ASUS claim the drive can hit up to 100`000 for both random read as well as random write. We didn`t want to waist any time and took a few pictures from this little baby."

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Ultrabook - BCCHardware
     Fri, Apr 26 2013 | 9:59A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Most Ultrabooks are a brushed aluminum, but the X1 Carbon has used the traditional ThinkPad matte black design. At first I wasn`t overly impressed as is wasn`t all shiny, but after a couple days of comparing it side by side with other Ultrabooks I began to really appreciate the fact that I wasn`t having to wipe fingerprints off of it every few minutes. . ."

REVIEW: Gigabyte Radeon HD 7790 @ PureOverclock
     Fri, Apr 26 2013 | 6:39A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“We’re examining the Gigabyte HD 7790. It comes with a sleek little cooler and a factory overclock. What’s particularly enticing is this Gigabyte card qualifies for an AMD promotional offer that tosses in an A+ gaming title in Bioshock Infinite worth $60 into the package. That sounds like a great deal, even if the performance isn’t terribly groundshaking as a more budget-oriented card. Let’s take a closer look at the Gigabyte HD 7790 and see how it fares.”

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.
