A.M.P Pulse Wireless Mobile Headphones
     Fri, Jan 10 2014 | 12:40P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In a market where you can find headphones from incredibly low prices and up to a few thousands of dollars/Euros it`s obviously not easy to choose the best model for your needs and that applies even more for people who are actually looking to get something special. Personally although Ive used countless models from a large number of manufacturers i still can`t say that Ive found the holy grail of headphones and to be honest with all of you i don`t really know if i ever will since naturally i can`t use/test every single model out there. Of course the really good thing about headphones and headsets is that you can wear them pretty much everywhere so although proper testing may take time it`s not really that hard (for example even while Im typing these lines Im also listening to my favorite songs) which means that we can squeeze in more models for testing. So today we will be taking a look at the latest offering by A.M.P (Antec Mobile Products) the Pulse"

QNAP TS-470 NAS Server Review
     Fri, Jan 10 2014 | 10:28A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The QNAP TS-470 Turbo NAS is part of a new model line that brings a higher level of performance to the small tower-based format. The TS-x70U rack mount series which launched earlier this year served up the basic technology package that?s been slimmed down here, in order to fit into the smaller form factor. The new TS-x70 towers are being promoted as business-class NAS servers, based on their high performance and networking package, but QNAP includes an HDMI port and IR receiver for good measure. Also included in the base package is a 2-port GbE NIC, installed in the PCIe expansion slot. Most business users will be able to increase the network throughput of this NAS with Port Trunking, thereby making effective use of all four GbE ports on the rear panel. Those who need more bandwidth can just replace the 2-port NIC with a 10GbE model."

Just in time for Christmas we have a mid-tower for you, this time from Cougar.

Lets see if they can continue to impress us."

ASUS M5A99FX Pro R2.0 Motherboard Review
     Thu, Jan 09 2014 | 3:33P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overclocking with the ASUS M5A99FX Pro R2.0 was relatively straightforward. I followed the usual method of disabling any power-saving options, locked in frequencies manually, and set about my way cranking up the speed. To make things move more quickly, after setting the basics in the BIOS, I fired up ASUS AI Suite to start iterating on my settings. After a few rounds through setting and testing I was sitting fat and happy at a very much thermally limited 4715 MHz at 1.43 volts. Any lower on the voltage would yield a failure on core #5 (which was the first one to fail in every single test) and any higher on either the voltage or clocks pushed the CPU into thermal throttling after a few minutes of Prime95. The final settings ended up being 200x23.5, 1.43 volts vcore, and 1.225 volts to the memory controller. All of my testing was done with the H100i cranked up to the unbearable maximum of its two 120mm screamers, but there just wasn`t any more headroom to keep it cool under load; the 8350 is not a cool chip when cranked this high. The last 15 MHz came from the board slightly overclocking the FSB even though I locked it in at 200 MHz."

OCZ Vertex 450 Review
     Thu, Jan 09 2014 | 10:28A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As far as drive performance goes. the Vertex 450 delivers good performance across the spectrum, especially when you look at read performance where as a single drive it easily meets the read/write rating for the drive of up to 525MB/s sequential read and 290MB/s sequential write in my testing. Adding a second drive to the mix in a RAID 0 configuration drives performance up and over the rated speeds of the 256GB and 512GB Vertex 450 drives. Really that is something you can expect, but then you start thinking of the costs of a pair of 128GB solid state drives. As of the date of this article you can pick up a pair of OCZ Vertex 450 128GB drives for less than $220 with free shipping from select e-tailers. At that price it is hard to overlook the performance generated by a pair of the Vertex 450 drives."

BitFenix Phenom mITX Case Review
     Thu, Jan 09 2014 | 8:59A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When the BitFenix Prodigy was released last year, it expanded on the idea of how much performance could fit in a small case. There were some users (me included) that felt the original Prodigy was just a little too big for an ITX box ? responding to customer feedback, BitFenix wanted to provide a more streamlined option for those users that wanted all that the Prodigy had to offer in a more compact package. With essentially the same internal layout as the original Prodigy, the new BitFenix Phenom (model BFC-PHE-300-WWXKK-RP) caters to those that want something a little more minimalistic with airflow taking a backseat to looks and finesse. Benchmark Reviews is ready to look inside and see how much of the Prodigy legacy stays intact with the BitFenix Phenom ITX case."
