Triple SLI: Window opened vs. Window closed - Performance comparison @ ocaholic
     Sun, Jan 01 2012 | 9:04P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Many overclockers desperatly wait for winter time. There are several reasons: one might be that they get hardware as christmas present, but much more imoprtant is the fact that it`s cold outside! This means opening the window give your overclocking rig quite a performance boost and a lot more overclocking headroom. Today were going to check what`s possible when outside temperature is zero degree celcius and you open a window one by one meter in size. For this purpose we use our triple SLI test rig which mistreated quite a few times in the past weeks. And honestly, if we wouldn`t answer this questions, the world would instantly stop turing!"

Kingston HyperX 3.0 64GB Flash Drive Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, Jan 01 2012 | 9:02P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We`ve literally benchmarked and used hundreds of USB Flash drives over the years and we can say without a doubt that the Kingston DataTraveler 3.0 Flash Drive is the fastest that we have ever used. This drive is blazing fast and is certainly worthy of being part of the HyperX brand. Our testing showed that the Kingston DataTraveler HyperX 3.0 64GB Flash Drive was able to run at 246MB/s read and 161MB/s write in ATTO, which is well beyond the 225MB/s read and 135MB/s write speed ratings given by Kingston..."

The Other Best Video Games of 2011
     Sun, Jan 01 2012 | 9:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MEGATechNews remembers some of the least recognized games of 2011 ... MEGATech Showcase: The Other Best Video Games of 2011 It?s the end of the year and the Internet has been flooded with countless ?best of? lists. And frankly, I?m here to bring you more. As a frequent player of videogames (who isn?t crazy about the term ?gamer?), I?ve already read several lists of what people consider to be the best games of 2011. Not surprisingly, Skyrim tops them all. As someone who?s only a minor fan of Oblivion, I agree that Skyrim is far and wide the best game of 2011. I?ve also seen Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Uncharted 3, and The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword on many lists, and they?re all great games. In fact, I don?t think I?ve seen a single game listed that I thought didn?t deserve to be recognized."

Buffalo CloudStor Pro (2TB) Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Sun, Jan 01 2012 | 11:40A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The Buffalo CloudStor Pro (2TB) is an easy-to-setup networked attached storage (NAS) device that allows you to remotely access your files from any networked computer and from a remote location via computer or supported wireless device. It works quite well, but it does lack in security features and speed.?"

Cooler Master Storm Sentinel Z3R0 G Mouse Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Sun, Jan 01 2012 | 9:20A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cooler Master`s original Storm Sentinel gaming mouse was a popular choice among gamers but some encountered problems with its Twin Eye sensor. A new mouse has now been released which takes the Sentinel`s body, adds some minor cosmetic changes and supposedly fixes the Twin Eye issues. Called the Sentinel Z3RO-G, this peripheral is packed with features but you`d be hard pressed to find many differences between it and its older sibling."

After yesterday`s article about the Grinch that stole the Radeon Gallium3D performance, here`s three offending commits since Mesa 7.10 that are causing the open-source Radeon Gallium3D driver to run slower than it should."

ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z @ PureOverclock
     Sat, Dec 31 2011 | 11:42P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z may be a micro-ATX form factor, but there`s nothing small about the features or performance on this board. It`s a sleeping giant, waiting to unleash the power of an unlocked Core i7 CPU. Frankly, it`s a wolf in sheep`s clothing. And coming wtih a price tag of only $170, this may be one of the best values out there right now for any platform. ASUS Republic of Gamer products are known to be elite, but affordable? That`s a new one. And that`s just what we`ve got on the bench today, so let`s see what this little powerhouse motherboard has in store. As you`ll see, Christmas has indeed come early."

Logitech G300 Gaming Mouse Review @ Techgage
     Sat, Dec 31 2011 | 11:12P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are many gaming mice on the market that sell for well over $60, but Logitech delivers an option at a mere $40 that it believes will cater to a huge number of gamers out there. It features a small, light design, a total of nine completely configurable buttons, a 2500 DPI sensor, comprehensive support for macros and more."

MSI 990FXA-GD80 Motherboard
     Sat, Dec 31 2011 | 2:27P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI 990FXA-GD80 is currently the highest-end in company`s Socket AM3+ series. As such it has and supports everything MSI can offer today. Still, the motherboard is practical and reasonable enough nonetheless, without features you could classify as marketing padding, and will attract those who need the best in technology."

LG Infinia 47LW5600 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Sat, Dec 31 2011 | 11:40A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?This 47-inch LED-backlit set employs passive 3D technology to deliver outstanding 3D imagery with the use of lightweight, inexpensive glasses that can be worn comfortably for hours. But that`s only part of the story: inky blacks, excellent color quality, low power usage, and a robust feature set all help to make the 47LW5600 our latest Editors` Choice 3D TV.?"

Batman Arkham City 3D Vision Game Review @ Benchmark Reviews
     Sat, Dec 31 2011 | 9:20A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Of all the superheroes, Batman is one of the few who does not possess any super-human power. Perhaps that is why so many people cheer for The Great Detective, and why so many gamers seek to wear his utility belt. Although the upcoming movie The Dark Knight Rises depicts the same character played in the Batman: Arkham City video game, both also share 3D special effects that offer a glimpse from behind Batman`s cowl. Super-villain Joker always gets the last laugh, and uses dozens of other arch enemies to help make his punch line. In this article, Benchmark Reviews guides you through the criminal masterminds that inhabit Batman: Arkham City in this NVIDIA 3D Vision game review."

Thrustmaster Ferrari F1 Wheel T500 Review @ Vortez
     Sat, Dec 31 2011 | 9:05A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A gaming wheel isn`t all about the looks though - performance is a massive talking point too, and this wheel certainly doesn`t disappoint. With the back end and pedals taken from the highly rated T500RS, it should have all the tricks of the trade required to keep even the most avid racing fans satisfied."

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.
