Today, we will be taking a good long look at some memory from their HyperX line. The ram official title is KHX1866C9D3K4/16GX but many will know it better by HyperX Genesis. We were handed 16GB of DDR3 1866 in four sticks. This kit is geared towards the motherboards featuring the Intel X79 chipset but can be used in many others."

Cygnett GrooveTrip II Mini FM Transmitter Review @ TestFreaks
     Fri, Jun 01 2012 | 2:31A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today Ive got a quick review for you of what I consider a useful product. I prefer to take my music with me in my MP3 player as I find it easier than dealing with CDs. In my car, which is newer I do have an audio input jack but most older cars dont so youve got to find another way to get your music to your radio. One way of doing this is to use an FM Transmitter and thats what I have for review today the Cygnett GrooveTrip II Mini FM Transmitter that our friends at Mobile Fun sent over to me "

Netgear Universal WiFi Range Extender WN3000RP Review @MissingRemote
     Fri, Jun 01 2012 | 1:47A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
That is where wireless repeaters or range extenders come into play, they allow you to extend your wireless coverage to distances greater than your access point at home can do on it`s own. Lately the trend from many consumer network manufactures is bringing to market these range extenders. Today we were able to review one of the new 802.11N range extenders from Netgear, the Netgear Universal WiFi Range Extender WN3000RP. *"

Mass Effect 3 is the third, and final installment (so they say) of the Mass Effect trilogy. The first chapter of the franchise, Mass Effect, was released back in November 2007 by developer Bioware under Microsoft Studios for the Xbox 360, and PC.

CM Storm Quick Fire Rapid
     Thu, May 31 2012 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the past few months we have reviewed a number of Cooler Master’s gaming division CM Storm’s gaming peripherals, and so far we have been pretty please with the time we spent with them. Today we get the chance to try out another CM Storm product, I guess Cooler Master likes us….they really like us : ), the Quick Fire Rapid Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. This keyboard, as with almost all of the CM Storm products, is centered on gaming and is using mechanical Cherry Blue switches to give users that quick response, and close to zero lag which comes with using mechanical switch vs. membrane switch based keyboards. The Quick Fire is also said to have anti ghosting, and 1000mhz/1ms response time along with more cosmetic extras like rubber coated keyboard surface, and laser mark keyscapes. So lets get into our review, and see if CM Storm still likes us after we say what we have to say about the Quick Fire.

BIOS Option Of The Week - Asynclat
     Thu, May 31 2012 | 4:00P | BIOS | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meager beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition. Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend.

Cooler Master Notepal ErgoStand Basic
     Thu, May 31 2012 | 12:03P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Cooler Master was one of the leading pioneers in the notebook cooling market. They saw a need and filled it with numerous notebook cooling solutions for everyone from the hardcore gamer to the person on the go. I have had the privilege to review many of these notebook cooling solutions. The CM Storm SF-19 made even the hottest of laptops feel like ice cubes; the CM Infinite EVO and LapAir proved that notebook cooling could be done effectively on a budget. This brings me to the newest member of the Cooler Master notebook cooling lineup: the Notepal ErgoStand Basic. In late 2010, Cooler Master released the Notepal ErgoStand which had a four port USB hub and adjustable fan controller. The ErgoStand Basic does away with these so, consider It the little brother of the original ErgoStand. Now that we have some context, let’s check out the Cooler Master Notepal ErgoStand Basic."

Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus 16GB
     Thu, May 31 2012 | 12:02P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For those of you that are Android fanboys and fangirls, the Samsung Galaxy Tablet runs Honeycomb 3.2. We have the 16GB version on our bench, but if you need more you can insert a microSD card as it has a slot for that on the side. The tablet claims up to 8 hrs of battery usage - mind you the more you use it the less battery life (and intense applications and games will make it drain faster). . .

Thermaltake Armor Revo Snow Edition Full Tower Case Review
     Thu, May 31 2012 | 12:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Thermaltake Armor Revo Snow Edition has taken that formula from the Chaser MK-I and made it better. The Armor Revo Snow Edition provides both slick looks and ultimate functionality. The first thing that you will notice with Snow Edition is the white color and the moving armor panels that border the front bezel. Next, you will see the top I/O panel that contains 2 USB 3.0 ports, 2 USB 2.0 ports, 1 e-SATA port, 3.5mm jacks, a high/low fan controller, fan LED toggle switch, power/reset buttons, and a HDD docking station. If you turn to the left side panel, there is the headphone hanger (as seen on the Level 10GT and Chaser Mk-I), a big transparent window. Inside, there is room for 4 5.25" ODD drives and 6 3.5"/2.5" drives."

Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB and SSDNow V+200 240GB Review
     Thu, May 31 2012 | 12:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After the success of its SF-1200 (1222) controller, virtually every SSD maker was eager to climb aboard the SandForce express. That bandwagon continued trucking through last year, as the second-gen SF-2200 (2281) powered many of 2011's noteworthy flash drives -- OCZ's Vertex 3 among them. Even Kingston, which previously used Toshiba chips, adopted SandForce's SF-2200 starting with last year's HyperX line. It's unclear when SandForce's next controllers will arrive, but in the meantime, companies seem to be making the most of its second-gen chips. Kingston, for instance, has released a pair of new SF-2281-based drives said to emphasize speed and affordability: the HyperX 3K and the SSDNow V+200. The former is aimed at enthusuasts and uses synchronous memory, while the latter uses cheaper asynchronous memory.

Posted by: STAFF
PowerColor`s HD 7850 PCS+ is the highest clocked HD 7850 card you can buy at this time. Thanks to its GPU clock speed of 1 GHz it provides excellent performance and the PCS+ cooler keeps everything cool and quiet. With just $20 over the AMD reference design, the price increase is also reasonable."

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 the platinum side of 80PLUS with two Antec power supplies ... * * *Antec Earthwatts 650 Platinum and High Current Pro HCP-1000 Platinum Power Supplies Reviewed* * * An 80PLUS certified PSU ensures that the system runs as lean and efficient as possible resulting in lower power consumption. This helps lower power bills, especially if you run multiple systems. Its sad that HP, Gateway or Dell branded desktop computers dont use them, making them all quite wasteful. However, enthusiasts who build or order custom systems can really benefit from an 80PLUS. Thats why weve got two 80PLUS Platinum level power supplies to play with today. *"

Kingston DataTraveler Elite 3.0 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review @ TestFreaks
     Thu, May 31 2012 | 8:45A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The DataTraveler Elite 3.0 is a capless drive, which means folks like myself who invariably lose their caps can rest easy. With USB 3.0 speeds of 70MB/s read, 30MB/s write it should be fast enough for most users. "

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
