Core i7-3770K and Core i7-2600K Radeon HD 7970 Gaming-Performance-Difference @ ocaholic
     Mon, May 07 2012 | 8:11A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In this article we`re going to check gaming performance of Intels high-end LGA 1155 Ivy Bridge and Sandy Bridge CPUs when they`re being supported by a Radeon HD 7970 graphics card from XFX. We`re curious if there will be a measurable performance gap between these two CPUs regarding modern games or if the 100 MHz more clock speed and the architecutral changes don`t even have an influence on gaming performance."

ROCCAT Kave 5.1 Surround Gaming Headset Review @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, May 07 2012 | 6:00A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After being impressed by another of ROCCAT`s products, the Kone gaming mouse, we were excited to see what sort of gamer-focused experience ROCCAT would produce with its Kave 5.1 gaming headset. After using this headset for many hours, it is clear to us that ROCCAT designed this headset with 5.1 channel gaming in mind, and they successfully did so..."

Western Digital VelociRaptor 1TB (WD1000DHTZ) Review @ TechwareLabs
     Sun, May 06 2012 | 5:21P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The one storage drive line that has bucked the trend over the years and managed to create noticeable separation between itself and its contenders/pretenders, and that is Western Digitals VelociRaptor line. Prior to SSDs hitting mainstream, the VelociRaptor line, with its 10,000 RPM spindle speed, was the pinnacle of performance and was the defacto choice for anyone that put performance before price. Fast forward to present day, where widespread competition is making SSD drives more and more affordable the VelociRaptor line isnt enjoying the same V.I.P treatment from enthusiasts it once used too. Today we take a look at the new Velociraptor"

Zalman Z11 Plus Mid Tower Case Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Sun, May 06 2012 | 5:21P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Zalman?s Z11 Plus MId Tower is their upgrade to the Z9 Plus, which we took a look at about a year ago. Zalman takes some of the features of the Z9 Plus and adds to it and gives it a little bit of a make over. The new Z11 plus features a futuristic look, 5 included fans with room for up to 7, USB 3.0 support, and support for 2.5-inch hard drives. The case is selling for only $84.99, so is it a steal? Will this case put Zalman back on the map when it comes to PC cases? Read on to find out!"

Galaxy GeForce GTX 680 2GB Graphics Card Review
     Sun, May 06 2012 | 4:12P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Interestingly, Galaxy was the only company to push forward on display outputs with Fermi, as we saw in our looks at the various Galaxy MDT graphics cards (GTX 570 and GT 520). While we gave the company lots of credit for stepping outside the box and helping to push the NVIDIA market ahead, all of that work is likely lost now that NVIDIA has introduced the ability to natively support four displays."

Silverstone TJ04-E Evolution Case Review
     Sun, May 06 2012 | 12:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the first Silverstone cases we ever reviewed was the Temjin TJ04 and felt it was one of the cleanest looking cases you could buy. In that review we also discovered that while it did look amazing the case was plagued with a few cooling issues that were easily solved with a few modifications. In this review we will be looking at the TJ04-E Evolution chassis. The case is based on the original TJ04 design but with a few significant upgrades.

Intel Ivy Bridge Processor Overclocking Proves Challenging For Some Motherboard Makers @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, May 06 2012 | 11:53A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you plan on buying an Intel Ivy Bridge processor we have an article that you have to read today! We have discovered an issue on Gigabyte motherboards that use the Intel 6-series of chipsets that is going to cause overclockers to cringe. Basically, the Gigabyte Z68 and P67 motherboards can`t overclock Ivy Bridge processors as the CPU multiplier is locked due to BIOS limitations. This means that Intel `k` sku processors like the Intel Core i7-3770K processor are stuck at a multiplier of 39 on these boards!"

Kingston HyperX T1 2800MHz DDR3 Memory Review on Ivy Bridge @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, May 06 2012 | 11:53A | Overclocking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Kingston Hyper T1 4GB 2800MHz memory kit that we looked at here today did a superb job on our motherboard that features the Intel Z77 Express chipset and the Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge processor. We ran this kit from 800MHZ with CL6 timings all they way up to 2800MHz with CL12 timings. It is pretty wild to see a 2000MHz spread with a memory kit, but this kit was up for the task..."

Lian Li PC-V353A Aluminum Silent PC Case Review
     Sun, May 06 2012 | 11:53A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Looking back less than 5 years ago i really can`t remember of anyone who owned an HTPC system and i can`t really say that i remember that many HTPC enclosure solutions either. Today things have obviously changed and so many people choose to have a single HTPC system to use both as a normal Desktop system and as a Hardware Media Player while at the same time skipping the cost of an LCD screen which would in most cases be a lot smaller than their main TV (naturally). Up until today i have to admit that although i do have an small HTPC system i never did like them much mainly because of the tiny interior space which doesn`t really allow you to install large and many components. Lian Li has been amongst the very few PC Case manufacturers who have actually designed and manufactured medium-sized HTPC enclosures and their latest PC-V353A might just be one of their best ones to date."

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.
