SSD NEWS - OCZ Vertex 4 128GB SSD Review and 1.4RC FW Comparison - SSD Steroids for Your Vertex 4
     Thu, May 17 2012 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you thought the most exciting improvements with OCZ`s new Vertex 4 firmware were reserved for the 256GB and 512GB models, you`d be wrong. As it happens, the most interesting and substantial performance improvements are to be had with the 128GB Vertex 4. We happen to have a 128GB Vertex 4 on our bench in order to find out what makes it and the new Vertex 4 1.4 Release Candidate firmware worth a look."

SteelSeries Diablo III Headset Review
     Thu, May 17 2012 | 4:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We are literally counting the hours before Diablo III the much anticipated (for almost 11 years) RPG game title by Blizzard gets officially released (some may have it already) and so since i am quite certain that most of you are looking forward to it this title should easily break sales records around the world just like StarCraft 2 did just over year ago (perhaps even more). So having already reviewed the very good Diablo III mouse by SteelSeries i thought it would be appropriate to also review their Diablo III headset just hours before the official launch of the game."

Storage Perspective: A Google Drive Preview
     Thu, May 17 2012 | 4:00P | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So, is it worth checking out? Yes. Is it worth switching to? For paid-storage users: maybe, depending on what your current storage provider is currently offering you. But for free storage users: yes, but I would advise thinking of it less in terms of switching and more in terms of adding Google Drive to your backup regime, especially if you are only dealing with amounts of storage that falls within free tiers."

The GTX 670 and the Case of the Missing (and Returning) 4-Way SLI Support
     Thu, May 17 2012 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In our launch review of the GeForce GTX 670 2GB graphics card this week, we had initially mentioned that these $399 graphics cards would support SLI, 3-Way SLI and even 4-Way SLI configurations thanks to the pair of SLI connections on the PCB. We received an update from NVIDIA later on that day that in fact it would NOT support 4-Way SLI."

Virtu Universal MVP Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Thu, May 17 2012 | 3:51P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Virtu Universal MVP is a software-based technology that is available on most motherboards based on the latest Intel Z77 chipset. It allows you to combine the CPU integrated graphics processor to your regular video card, increasing gaming performance. This is similar to what occurs with the NVIDIA`s Hybrid SLI and AMD`s ATI Hybrid technologies, with the notable difference of not being limited to GPUs or CPUs of a specific manufacturer. In this review we will see if this technology really works and how much performance you will gain by using it. We will also take a look at the performance of the integrated graphics processor available on the Core i7-3770K (Ivy Bridge) CPU."

Zotac GeForce GTX680 2GB Review
     Thu, May 17 2012 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Zotac GeForce GTX680 2GB and the newer 4GB version, are the only NVIDIA-based models Zotac currently make in the 600 series. We have the 2GB version for review and we were very impressed with the results. The Zotac GeForce GTX680 2GB is definitely a card for enthusiast gamers. The GTX680 is on par with the ATI HD 7970, but are a much cheaper price...

Gigabyte GTX670 OC Video Card Review
     Thu, May 17 2012 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gigabyte GTX670 OC Video Card Review The Gigabyte GV-N670OC-GD2 has many things going for it starting with the new GTX 670 GPU. This may be a cut down version of the GTX 680 but it has plenty of power for most games and some to spare in others. Most of that power comes from the impressive decent factory overclock which was due, in part, to the custom designed PCB and Windforce thermal solution.

Patriot Viper Xtreme Division 4 DDR3-1866 16GB Quad Channel Memory Kit Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Thu, May 17 2012 | 11:01A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A little over a year ago we took a look at our first Patriot Viper Xtreme memory kit in their 6GB DDR3-2000 kit. These kits are just awesome! Each module in the kit features 6 grams of copper at its core paired with an extruded aircraft-grade aluminum outer shield, which not only is going to keep the modules cool, but makes for a pretty cool look. Today we are taking a look a the Division 4 kit of the Viper Xtreme Series, which is designed specifically for Intel?s X79 platform and 2nd generation Core? processors. We are checking out the PXQ316G1866ELQK kit, which is a 16GB kit running at 1866MHz with timings of 9-11-9-27 at 1.65V. Read on as we take these for a ride."

G.Skill Ares 16GB 1866Mhz DDR3 Memory Kit @ Benchmark Reviews
     Thu, May 17 2012 | 10:20A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Some people want or even need the most memory that they possibly can get into a system, for those users a simple 16GB of RAM may not be enough. Thankfully, due to rapidly dropping prices having as much RAM as servers of yesteryear is neither overly expensive, nor that unreasonable to have. Benchmark Reviews will be looking at the G.Skill Ares 1866MHz 2 x 8GB kit designed specifically with those people in mind. Named after the Greek god of war the G.Skill Ares kit looks like it is ready for war with its heat sinks glistening in the sun but is it really the warrior it claims to be or a just imposter with nice armor. Benchmark Reviews will evaluate the merit of the Ares name and determine if this kit is truly worth of the name it has been given."

     Thu, May 17 2012 | 9:38A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today`s latest graphics cards come with support for PCI-Express 3.0, which promises twice the bandwidth, while still being compatible with older motherboards and graphics cards. In our article we analyze differences in PCIe performance on Intel`s Ivy Bridge with GeForce GTX 680 and Radeon HD 7970, using 20 games at five resolutions, each at all three PCIe generations and x4, x8 and x16 link width."

Android to the Maxx DROID Razr Maxx @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, May 17 2012 | 9:17A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The list of different Android based phones available at any time is both overwhelming and frustrating. Its almost impossible to get good feedback from friends who have the same phone because of this. So its rare than you have any one phone that manages to stand out. Doing something different is the only way to do this normally, but most times this ends off coming off as gimmicky or just lame. When Motorola introduced the Droid Razr Maxx it caught my attention right away. This was just before our trip out to San Francisco for the GTX 680 Editors day, what a better way to put the Maxxs proposed batter life to the test!"

Antec 1000W HCP Platinum power supply review
     Thu, May 17 2012 | 9:17A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the Antec 1000W HCP Platinum power supply. Recently they submitted their all new HCP (High Current Pro) 1000W power supply. Their gold model has been selling for a year now but is replaced with this version. It was further improved and got a 80 plus Platinum certification, meaning the PSU can pimp and show off its most efficient power supply label available in this bizz. Read the review right here"

ASUS P8Z77-I Deluxe - mini ITX Madness! @ Ocaholic
     Thu, May 17 2012 | 9:17A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the P8Z77-I Deluxe, ASUS has a first mini-ITX motherboard in their portfolio which can also be used for overclocking. The most impressive thing about this board is the power design. You can find an VRM design that features eight phases, which is really impressive for such a small motherboard. Furthermore this is the Deluxe model, so there will also be plenty of features."

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.
