Pivos aios HD Media Center Review
     Thu, May 10 2012 | 3:51P | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So far 2012 is the only year inside which I`ve seen so many manufacturers release and announce both network/hdd media players and HTPC solutions which brings about the question which is the best solution for people. Honestly that`s not something one can answer mainly because each of us has a different set of needs and requirements so whereas some people just want to watch a movie in which case a network/hdd media player would be the obvious choice others may want to also play games, surf the web, use social sites and a lot more so an HTPC would be a far more suitable solution. Personally i like to have several different devices each ment for a different purpose so naturally I`ll always prefer an good network/hdd media player and an desktop system over an single HTPC (unless of course i couldn`t afford both). Today however we will be testing one of the entry-level media players in the market, the aios HD media center by Pivos Technology Group."

DeepCool Ice Wind Pro Heatsink Review
     Thu, May 10 2012 | 1:40P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Deepcool's Ice Wind Pro heatsink is a rather novel CPU cooler for two unique qualities; 1) its heatpipe-to-fin arrangement and 2) the geometry of its leading and trailing fin edges. First off, rather than clusters of heatpipes at the left and right sides of the aluminum fin tower, the eight ends of the heatpipes are lined up straight in a row, 10mm apart, right down the middle of the heatsink. Secondly, the leading/trailing edges of the aluminum fin stack have five large, slightly arc'd diamond cut-outs parallel to the direction of the fins that break up the otherwise monolithic wall."

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.
