CM Storm Scout 2 @ Techreaction.net
     Thu, Oct 18 2012 | 9:09A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The highly anticipated recreation of the benchmark in LAN gamer cases, Scout 2 offers refinements on its predecessors design. These refinements are bolstered by improved steel reinforced carrying handles, bolted to the core structure. Front console connections have been updated to USB 3.0 while offering protection from adverse travel conditions with hidden sliding cover. Support for current high-end hardware is greatly increased by a removable HDD cage that supports the massive VGAs in todays market. Now lets throw it up on our review table and see how well it does.

Cooler Master NotePal I300 Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Thu, Oct 18 2012 | 9:09A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We all know that Cooler Master has no shortage of products meant to aid in the cooling of your favorite laptop. We have reviewed many over the years and today we will be adding another one to the collection. The new NotePal I300 is a simple but well refined cooler that is thin and very lightweight. The 160mm fan sitting in the middle is what will separate this cooler from the many in the same class or price range."

EVGA SuperNOVA NEX1500 Classified 1500W Power Supply Review
     Thu, Oct 18 2012 | 9:05A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The EVGA SuperNOVA NEX1500 Classified 1500W PSU delivered very good voltage regulation, clean outputs on the three primary rails, and 80 Plus Gold efficiency while delivering up to 1650W. The NEX1500 uses all modular cables, which are color coded and sleeved. Note: Each individual wire is sleeved, not just the cables. And speaking of cables, the NEX1500 comes with eight dedicated PCI-E cables, each fitted with two 6+2 Pin PCI-E connectors. And there are three more 6 pin PCI-E connectors for a grand total of 19! The heavy duty power cord uses 12AWG wire. And lets not forget the industrial grade handle and a 10-Year warranty."

REVIEW: ROCCAT Savu Gaming Mouse @ PureOverclock
     Wed, Oct 17 2012 | 11:17P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ROCCAT Savu looks to continue the innovative features such as EasyShift[+] that we`ve previously seen, and if the past is any indication, then we expect big things from ROCCAT here with the Savu. And while ROCCAT may not be quite as well known in North America as some established industry heavyweights, they`ve made quite a splash in Europe, and seem to be looking to expand on this side of the pond, complete with a healthy pedigree to back up their gaming lineup. With a price tag of about $70, can the ROCCAT Savu stack up well in a competitive market? Let`s take a closer look and find out."

ROCCAT Savu Gaming Mouse Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Wed, Oct 17 2012 | 1:51P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Here we are back with another gaming device from ROCCAT. Over the past few months we have taken a look at a selection of their mice, keyboards and headsets. For being the new kid on the block they really mean business and are not some gaming brand that is going to here and gone in a year. On the review block today is a Savu Gaming Mouse. This mouse features a 4000 dpi optical sensor opposed to laser sensors that weve seen on many of the latest mice. The mid-size gaming mouse only has 4 major buttons plus a scroll wheel, you can double those buttons with ROCCATs Easy-Shift[+] functionality. The Savu also features no sweat grips and a rear light bar that can be customized to any color you wish. Is this the gaming mouse for you? Read on to find out!"

Calxeda EnergyCore ECX-1000 ARM Server
     Wed, Oct 17 2012 | 11:44A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this month I was down in Texas visiting the Calxeda office where for the past four years they have been busy trying to revolutionize the server market through ultra-low power ARM-based servers. This morning one of their partners, Boston Limited, is formally launching their energy-efficient Viridis server built around Calxeda`s EnergyCore ECX-1000 hardware. In this article are the first of some public Calxeda ARM benchmarks on Ubuntu Linux while more results will be out in the coming days."

AMD Catalyst 12.9 Beta - HD 7970 CrossFire Gaming Performance @ Ocaholic
     Wed, Oct 17 2012 | 9:42A | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It`s been a while since we last benched AMD Catalyst drivers in CrossFire which is our fault and not AMD`s, lack of time... Anyway AMD repleased the Catalyst 12.9 Beta three weeks ago and we tested the performance of this driver package last week using one single card. Here we are going to check what`s about a dual graphics card CrossFire setup and compare it with some previous Catalyst drivers."

Borderlands 2 (Sleepless) Review
     Wed, Oct 17 2012 | 9:09A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I will even go a step further in my recommendation of Borderlands 2 by adding this. Despite playing for 29 hours and 40 minutes, with breaks only for food, water, and restroom visits (no coffee, yuck), I do not feel burned out by the game at all. I look forward to getting back in there and making my Zero as overpowered as possible, as well as getting another character or three started. After all, I`ve got a bunch of side quests still to finish, and can`t leave those sitting in the queue! Also the True Vault Hunter mode beckons me."

Canon Selphy CP900 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Wed, Oct 17 2012 | 9:09A | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Dedicated photo printers like the Canon Selphy CP900 have become something of a niche product. If you need a portable, dedicated 4x6 photo printer, that makes the CP900 one of your few options. Fortunately, it`s capable enough that it would probably be one of the better choices even if there were more competition."

CM Storm Ceres-400 Headset Review
     Wed, Oct 17 2012 | 9:09A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The most important part of any headset is really how it sounds as well and in that case this headset is a bit of a mixed bag. If you`re looking for top-notch musical production you`re probably better off spending a bit more and buying something designed for that. However, for most of us, pretty good sound quality combined with excellent comfort and design is a winning combination. That, my friends, this headset has in spades. The overall sound is a little on the heavier and darker side, which is something that actually tends to help with long-term listening comfort. The heavy bass response will keep bassheads happy without annoying audiophiles and the strong midbass keeps the sound very warm. For gaming and movies this headset will not disappoint unless you try to blow your ears off; in which case the slight distortion when maxing them out won`t matter for long as you`ll damage your hearing with the massive output you can generate with them even with onboard sound."

PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
