CM Storm QuickFire Pro Gaming Keyboard Review @ Techgage
     Wed, Apr 18 2012 | 9:37A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As we discovered in our review, Cooler Master`s QuickFire Rapid mechanical keyboard is a good one. But, it lacked a couple of things that some gamers (like me) demand. Such things include backlighting, a numpad, and in rarer cases, N-key rollover support. All of these things can be found on the QuickFire Pro, so let`s check it out."

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 Surround Gaming Tested @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Apr 18 2012 | 9:15A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After running 2D Surround on the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 for the past week we must say that we were pleasantly surprised with the user experience that we had. It has become clear to us that multi-monitor gaming has matured to the point that it is ready for mainstream adaptation. Before it took running more than one card and the Windows experience with the drivers wasn`t that great. NVIDIA changed all that with the new features that are included with the latest GeForce drivers and now you can run both 2D and 3D Surround with a single GeForce 600 `Kepler` series card..."

IcyDock MB994SP-4SB-1 Four-bay 2.5-inch SATA Hard Drive Rack
     Tue, Apr 17 2012 | 5:09P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

The IcyDock MB994SP-4SB-1 is just such a unit - it packs (4) 2.5" HDD/SSD drives into the space of a single 5.25" drive bay and provides unified power and SATA hook ups at the rear. On top of its high density convenience, all four SATA drive bays are hot swappable without the need to pop off a side panel or disconnect cables.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX10V Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Tue, Apr 17 2012 | 4:59P | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX10V is an 18-megapixel digital camera with excellent image and video quality in a compact size. It has a strong zoom lens, but is slow due to in-camera processing. With a competitive price, it`s a strong contender for your next compact camera."

ASUS ZENBOOK UX31E Ultrabook Review @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Apr 17 2012 | 4:11P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After spending some time with the ASUS Zenbook we must saw that we are amazed with how responsive and fast this notebook feels and it looks gorgeous. ASUS has really stepped up the game when it comes to fit and finish of their products and the quality of the great workmanship is really starting to pay off. The ASUS Zenbook UX31E is amazingly thin and after traveling through the airport with one, it is hard to want to use anything besides an Ultrabook now..."

BitFenix Raider Mid-Tower Case - BCCHardware
     Tue, Apr 17 2012 | 4:11P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Bitfenix Raider has a lot of features. The built in fan controller is nice, but unfortunately only works with 3-pin fans. The four USB 3.0 ports are easily accessed and the tool-less optical drive mounting system is simple and easy to use. The Raider comes with three 120mm fans installed - one exhaust and two intake fans - giving the case positive pressure. I would install another exhaust in top to even air-flow out, but it does fine without it. . ."

Buffalo USB3 Addon cards + Kingston HyperX USB3 64GB @ Rbmods
     Tue, Apr 17 2012 | 4:11P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
USB has been the de facto connector for external computer peripherals in the past 15 years. Its newest generation, USB3, has been gaining popularity during the past year and now it?s time to take a look what it has to offer. We will take a look at two addon cards; one that fits desktop computers PCI-E slot and one that fits laptops PCCard slot. Along with them we will also review the Kingston Datatraveler HyperX 3.0 USB Stick and see how much better it performs than a traditional USB2.0 stick."

SSD NEWS: Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SATA III SSD Review - Better Value With Incredible Performance
     Tue, Apr 17 2012 | 4:04P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our SSD report today examines the Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SATA 3 SSD, `3k` signifying Kingston`s move to the more economical 3k PE (program/erase cycles) rated NAND for increased consumer value. For the typical consumer, this will mean little as their new HyperX 3k will still last years, however, interestingly enough, Kingston claims no performance loss for the better value and this is definitely encouraging."

Titan Fenrir Siberia TTC-NC55TZ(RB) Heatsink Review on Frostytech
     Tue, Apr 17 2012 | 1:13P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

"Top down cooling has its advantages, though tower cooling is usually the preferred method given its compact footprint. In this review Frostytech is testing out a heatsink from Titan that aims to satisfy both tower and top-top heatsink designs, in one. The Titan Fenrir Siberia Edition TTC-NC55TZRB heatsink is built around five 8mm diameter copper heatpipes which extend in two directions from a copper base block to independent fin stacks, essentially making one large CPU cooler from separate 'tower' and 'top-down' heatsinks."

A Futurelooks News Flash - Patriot Memory Pyro SE 240GB SATA III SSD Review
     Tue, Apr 17 2012 | 11:11A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
a post to your own news section would totally be appreciated. If we`re sending our news to the wrong place, we apologize. Just send us a message with the correct address to the address below. Don`t forget that, Patriot Memory?s Pyro SATA6Gb series are among the most affordable asynchronous SSDs available. Their price is aimed at attracting early adopters and pro users looking to give their computers a much needed performance boost. They also offer the Wildfire synchronous series for enthusiasts who want the fastest overall performance money can buy. But it?s the consumers right in between that Patriot Memory is looking to reach with the new Pyro SE series. *"

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.
