Two High-Quality LGA 1155 Mainboards from Gigabyte
     Tue, Aug 21 2012 | 4:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
These two mainboards are quite different, because they belong to the entry and the top segment of the Intel Z77 Express based series from Gigabyte. Yet, they both boast convenient layout, rich functionality, good overclocking potential and a number of proprietary technologies such as 3D Power, 3D BIOS and Ultra Durable 4.

HP Deskjet 3070A review: simple, small yet effective
     Tue, Aug 21 2012 | 4:01P | Printers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HP Deskjet 3070A is a very good all-in-one for what you pay for it. There are not many all-in-ones that can equal this type of performance at this price level. Granted, it doesn't come with a lot of features, the display is very limited, and the build quality is perhaps not of the highest quality either. All-in-all the 3070A is not a bad buy, but there is room for improvement.

Test: Is your Intel Core 2 Duo still up to date? - Gaming Performance HD 7970 @ ocaholic
     Tue, Aug 21 2012 | 2:43P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
That is the question, Intel`s Core2Duo was very popular back in the days and still is. Furthermore according to Steam`s survey half of steam gamers are still using a machine powered by a dual core processor. Fair enough, let`s see how the Core2Duo E8400 clocked at 3 GHz will perform against today`s processors like the i7 3770K and FX-8150 under heavy 3D workloads conditions such as Benchmarks and recent Games with highest graphics settings possible at a resolution of 1920x1080. Let`s get it started!"

Cooler Master USNA 120 AC/DC Power Adapter @ Pro-Clockers
     Tue, Aug 21 2012 | 10:39A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Having a nice universal AC/DC adapter around is a good thing. In my case I have had some go bad an having an extra around eliminated all the pain and hassle going out and having to look for a new one. Another reason I keep an extra around is to keep having to unplug and re-plug when I take my laptop around the house. Yes, I am just that lazy. And plus what if you lose one? Whatever the reason for you to need a new adapter, Cooler Master has one for you to consider. The USNA 120 is the highest wattage model they now produce. Able to product an output voltage up to 20 Vda and 5.79v, the unit should be able to power up almost any small portable device you have. And"

Acer Aspire TimelineU M5 Review
     Mon, Aug 20 2012 | 4:02P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
More than last year, 2012's ultrabooks have been and will continue to be about tradeoffs: low-res screens vs. high-res, TN panels vs. IPS, snappy SSDs vs. capacious HDDs, dual-core CPUs vs. quad-core, 2GB vs. 8GB, power-sipping IGPs vs. muscle-bound GPUs, mainstream vs. premium pricing, and so on. In other words, shopping for an ultrabook is eerily similar to shopping for any other notebook, which raises concerns about the long-term marketing potential of ultrabooks as a special sub-classification of premium laptops. Acer's new TimelineU makes its own compromises. Our review unit touts a full-size backlit keyboard, 500GB of storage, a GeForce GT 640M LE GPU, an optical drive, an eight-hour battery life and an attractive $830 price tag. Naturally, the question is: what's the catch? Let's get to the bottom of that.

Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP5 TH Z77 motherboard review: dual Thunderbolt
     Mon, Aug 20 2012 | 4:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
he GA-Z77X-UP5 TH has another selling point, and that's the inclusion of two Intel Thunderbolt connectors. Since one of the key features of Thunderbolt is the ability to daisy chain multiple devices, a second connector seems superfluous at first. However, Intel also has a cheaper Thunderbolt chip for peripheral devices that do not have the daisy chaining feature. It's likely that more and more Thunderbolt devices will hit the market that cannot be daisy chained, so the presence of a second Thunderbolt adapter is a good way of future-proofing your PC.

Test: Crucial Ballistix Elite 4x4GB 2000 MHz CL9 revisited on Ivy Bridge @ ocaholic
     Mon, Aug 20 2012 | 2:43P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Very recently, we posted a trilogy featuring memory from Crucials recently refreshed Ballistix series. Before Crucial have massively switched to Micron D9PFJ, they had to resort to other IC makers in order to produce their fast memory. Tonight, we will take a second look at some of their older stuff to judge if going Micron made things any better."
