Corsair Vengeance K60 Performance FPS Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review
     Sat, Apr 07 2012 | 10:33A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In that review I stressed that just because the title said it wasn`t specifically geared towards those of us with headshots in an FPS title, it was still very useable for anyone, not just MMO and RTS players. With the latest submission from Corsair I now get why regular users and FPS gamers were left out! The mechanical keyboard I am looking at today is really a shrink of the original K90. By this I mean that it offers almost all of the same functionality, but two major components have been removed leaving a much smaller overall keyboard design once all of the G-keys are removed and of course the M-keys are gone as well. The second part to get the axe and what I miss the most is that super cool blue LED backlighting of the keys that would reflect off of the aluminum top for a visually tricked out appearance. Just because a couple of things have been removed doesn`t mean that that is the end of the story. Even though Corsair removed a couple of the tricks that is going to make the K90 one of the most successful selling mechanical keyboards this year, the little brother doesn`t hold back either, it just got looked at from a different approach during the design. If you liked what you read about the K90, want to save a bit of cash on the purchase and Macro keys and LEDS aren`t top of your list of must haves in a keyboard, then the latest submission is right up your alley. The Vengeance K60 Performance FPS mechanical gaming keyboard offers plenty of bang for the buck with the fact it keeps the Cherry MX red switches, the contoured wrist rest that even holds a surprise inside and lastly there is the material choices with aluminum winning out for the choice of materials to face this keyboard with."

MSI R7970 Lightning Radeon HD 7970 3GB Video Card Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sat, Apr 07 2012 | 10:11A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overclocking the MSI R7970 Lighting was a blast and the fact that we could take it from 1070 MHz on the core all the way up to 1275 MHz was impressive. AMD released the Radeon HD 7970 with a 925 MHz core clock, so this is a 350 MHz overclock on the core! This card was really fun to overclock on air, so we can only imagine what those with LN2 pots will be able to hit..."

Sapphire's HD 7850 OC Edition
     Sat, Apr 07 2012 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sapphire's HD 7850 OC Edition is faster and quieter than AMD's reference model we reviewed earlier, but it's also smaller to boot. It offers all this while keeping the same amazing feature-set and performance-per-watt of AMD's mid-range wonder. See how it stacks against similar cards in our review.

S Radeon HD 7870 IceQ Turbo
     Sat, Apr 07 2012 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HIS Radeon HD 7870 IceQ Turbo is a menacing looking graphics card thanks to that huge black fan shroud and thick copper heatpipes that loop out the side like some kind of robotic tentacles. There is no question that this is a bad ass graphics card that will undoubtedly turn a lot of heads, but is it as impressive as it looks?

OCZ Vertex 4 Indilinx Everest 2-Infused SSD Review
     Sat, Apr 07 2012 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OCZ Technology’s Vertex series of solid state drives have been consistently popular with enthusiasts since their initial arrival in 2009. OCZ has made significant changes with each successive generation of Vertex solid state drives, but generally speaking, each one has offered strong performance and was considered among the best overall values in the consumer SSD space. The original Vertex SSD was built around the Indilinx Barefoot controller, which was competitive when first released, but didn’t quite perform as well as some of the higher-end drives available at the time. The Vertex 2 and 3, however, featured SandForce controllers and both drives proved to be among the best performing SSDs of their generation. With the new Vertex 4 we’ll be showing you here today though, OCZ once again turns to Indilinx—now wholly owned by OCZ...

MSI R7970 Lightning Review: AMDs HD 7970 Gets the Treatment
     Sat, Apr 07 2012 | 8:09A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So am I in love with this card as much as the previous Lightnings? No. This is due to the simple experience that I had. It did not initially work as advertised, but it might simply be a less than stellar example of the design. MSI appears to have done a nice job on the design and functionality of the card. The cooling is outstanding, the ability to drive six monitors is a plus, and the idea behind the GPU Reactor is sound. This particular example just gave me fits right off the bat."

Cooler Master QuickFire Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard @ Pro-Clockers
     Fri, Apr 06 2012 | 10:40A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One thing the QuickFire was missing was the 10-key pad that many of us are so use to having. It also has the Cherry MX Red switches which I loved even with it click noise when pressing the keys in and the lower resistance when pressing keys. The new QuickFire Pro is a totally different keyboard as it employs brown switch which we will get into later and a plus a 10-key pad. My excitement is already building so lets get into this."

TechSpot PC Buying Guide
     Fri, Apr 06 2012 | 9:03A | Beginners Guides | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The TechSpot PC Buying Guide offers an in-depth list of today's best hardware, spanning four unique, yet typical budgets. Whether you are a first time builder seeking guidance or a seasoned enthusiast, we have you covered. We know that one of the biggest pitfalls of buying guides is that they expire shortly after publishing as prices change and components come and go. To avoid this, we are adding and updating new hardware to the mix as it's released. All four builds -- budget, entry-level, enthusiast, and luxury -- are updated on major product launches and we'll make a biweekly pass over the components and their prices to catch anything in-between. Check out our latest refresh.

Lenovo C325 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Fri, Apr 06 2012 | 8:09A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Lenovo C325 is a basic all-in-one desktop PC for those that would rather have a bigger screen than portability. Its energy-saving processor is sufficient for Web surfing duties, and the system`s utility is higher than the relatively modest price tag suggests. It is basic computing through and through, but it is certainly sufficient for regular users."

ideal amount of memory for Intel X79 Platform?
     Thu, Apr 05 2012 | 6:35P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"While setting up Gigabyte's latest Intel X79 motherboard on the PCSTATS test bench a few week ago, we found ourselves wondering; "what's the ideal amount of memory to use in a Intel Core i7 3820 'Sandy Bridge-E' platform these days?" Obviously, with a 32-bit Windows 7 OS we'd be limited to 4GB of system memory, but what's the magic number for Windows 7 64-bit?"

Sennheiser IE60 Earphones

Posted by: STAFF
"With plenty of praise from editorial reviewers and everyday audiophiles for their previous generation IE6 and IE8 in-ear headphone models, Sennheiser has a tall order to fill with their next-gen IE60 and IE80 in-ear headphones. After a few weeks of living with the IE60 as my main listening companion, how does it stack up to competitors in the $200+ price range? Read on to find out."

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.
