Gigabyte Radeon HD 7770 OC Video Card Review @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Mar 13 2012 | 9:25A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After spending a couple weeks using the Gigabyte Radeon HD 7770 OC 1GB GDDR5 video card (part number GV-R777OC-1GD) we found it to be a great little video card. We like that it is faster, quieter and cooler than the AMD Radeon HD 7770 reference card. The fact that it is also about half an inch shorter is also a plus. At the end of the day there is nothing we could find wrong with this card.."

HP Omni 27 Quad Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Tue, Mar 13 2012 | 9:25A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HP Omni 27 Quad offers a huge 27-inch 1080p HD display that makes it the largest Windows-based all-in-one available. The display looks really great as well as the design, but with Windows 8 on the horizon, you might want to wait on purchasing a computer like this one."

Incipio f38 Headset @ Techreaction.net
     Tue, Mar 13 2012 | 9:25A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Incipio has sent us their first take on headsets as they break into the audio market. The f38`s come with a standard 3.5mm audio jack which also has a ¼? adapter to allow you to use your f38 headphones on almost anything that?s hot on the market now. The Incipio f38`s are powered by a 38mm neodymium driver. The f38`s come with synthetic leather ear cups and headband that should help with comfort during prolonged use. The f38`s also come with an adjustable steel wire headband to fit almost everyone. However, after we buttered you up with the intro, we still need to test and see if this headset is worth the synthetic leather used on it, read on ?"

Logitech Wireless Headset F540 Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Tue, Mar 13 2012 | 9:25A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Logitech is a brand that virtually every computer user and PC gamer knows and associates with quality products. While Logitech has a stronghold in the PC gaming market, their share in the console world is a bit smaller. The Wireless Headset F540 is ready to change that. The F540 is equipped to deliver game and voice audio wirelessly for both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Featuring independent volume controls, 40mm laser-tuned drivers, audio inputs for up to three sources, a rechargeable battery, and great sound, the F540 aims to give console gamers a taste of what Logitech has provided PC gamers with for years."

OWC Mercury Elite-AL Pro Dual Mini RAID Data Storage
     Tue, Mar 13 2012 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OWC has a great range of external storage solutions for both Mac and PC users. With the Elite Pro offerings addressing the desktop solutions, in quad, dual and single Bay formats, there is a need for that “portable” offering that can come in so handy for users on-the-go. This is the slot that the Mercury Elite Pro Mini looks to fill and, with room for 2 HDDs or SSDs, it certainly makes for an interesting enclosure.

MSI Big Bang XPower II Motherboard Review
     Tue, Mar 13 2012 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I'm sure you're all familiar with the theory of the Big Bang. The whole creation of the universe theory. Anything that uses the Big Bang name sure has a lot to live up to! MSI has released their second revision of the Big Bang XPower. The first XPower was the Intel X58 chipset, the MSI Big Bang XPower II is built around the latest and greatest Intel X79 chipset. Today we are going to take an in-depth look at the MSI Big Bang XPower II and put it through the paces. With any luck the MSI Big Bang XPower II will make a big bang in our tests and not just a little pop! Quote: "With the Big Bang moniker the MSI Big Bang XPower II has a lot to live up to, after all that is (arguably) how the universe was created. Since the XPower II is from MSI we expected nothing but the best, and they have delivered today! "

PowerColor LCS HD7970 3GB
     Tue, Mar 13 2012 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The overall combined numbers of 1235MHz on the GPU core and 1730MHz on the GDDR5 memory offered the highest marks on both clock speeds combined. To reach the maximum clock speeds, I used MSI's Afterburner Utility with unofficial overclocking enabled so the clock speeds could be adjusted past the limits in the Catalyst Control Center. Since the PowerColor LCS HD 7970 is liquid-cooled, I cranked the voltage up to 1300mv and let it rip. Any lower and the clock speeds would suffer. The higher voltage and frequency only impacted the load temperatures by 2 ºC, coming in at 44 ºC, validating PowerColor's claim to less than a 50 ºC load temperature. By overclocking, there were significant gains to be had in performance in all the games tested, making it a worthwhile endeavor. The clock speed gain over the class leading 1050MHz was 185MHz, or +18%, on the Tahiti core, and 305MHz, or just over +21%, on the GDDR5 memory. This led to improvements in gaming at 5760x1080 of close to 20%; again, well worth the effort. This card was meant to be overclocked and it does quite well."

Diamond Radeon HD 7970 3GB Video Card tested with Catalyst 12.2
     Tue, Mar 13 2012 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Since we knew that the Catalyst 12.2 drivers weren't far away we figured it was a good chance to look at the driver in a bit more detail than just our typical Catalyst benchmark line up, so that's exactly what we'll be doing today as we see how the Diamond HD 7970 with the series' first WHQL driver goes against the original launch driver we used. Of course there are a few things we need to do before we get into the performance side of things and we see exactly what's going on with the latest AMD driver. Since we haven't looked at the Diamond HD 7970, the first thing we need to do is take a closer look at the bundle to see exactly what's going on."

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.
