EpicGear Blade and Hybrid Pad Review @ ocaholic
     Fri, Feb 21 2014 | 12:10P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Blade, EpicGear have a gaming mouse in their portfolio, that sports a rather aggressive price tag, which apparently comes at the cost of a low resolution sensor. In this case, there is an Avageo ADNS-3050 with 2000 DPI, with which the maker of this mouse won`t break any records. Apart from that we were testing this mouse on an EpicGear Hybrid Pad, which we will also have a quick look at on the following pages."

Seagate Desktop HDD 4 TB vs. Western Digital WD Black 4 TB Hard Drive Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Fri, Feb 21 2014 | 9:30A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While SSDs are the best choice in roles that need high speed (mostly boot drives for the home user), many people need large amounts of storage space, and traditional hard drives still give the best value per gigabyte. Four-terabyte drives are the biggest drives available today, and today we will test two of them: the Seagate Desktop HDD 4 TB and the Western Digital WD Black 4 TB."

NVIDIA G-Sync DIY Upgrade Kit Installation and Performance Review
     Fri, Feb 21 2014 | 8:31A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I`m extremely impressed with the build quality of the G-Sync installation kit, as well as the product and technology itself. The installation should be possible for any do-it-youselfer, and the included documentation took away all of the uncertainty venturing into unknown waters. My biggest gripe / hope is to see this technology applied to larger, more color-accurate panels. I`d pay good money for a 2560x1600 IPS G-Sync panel, even if the max refresh rate was 100 or even 85 Hz."

Hardwareoverclock.com has just posted another review. Last week we have taken a look at the Sapphire Radeon R9 Tri-X OC video card. This card has 3 temperature controlled fans, a big heatsink with thick heatpipes. But is that enough for quiet and efficient use? That and more you can find in our review."

AMD Radeon R9 290: Still Not Good For Linux Users
     Thu, Feb 20 2014 | 9:07A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When reviewing the AMD Radeon R9 290 under Linux back in November we found the Catalyst Linux performance to be quite poor for this high-end Hawaii graphics processor compared to the pleasurable performance reports under Windows and a strong showing against NVIDIA`s wares. Even with succeeding updates we still found the R9 290 Linux performance to be poor -- and that`s for the high-performance Catalyst driver over the open-source RadeonSI Gallium3D-based driver. In this article are fresh benchmarks of the high-end NVIDIA GeForce and AMD Radeon graphics cards from Ubuntu Linux using the latest beta graphics drivers."

Noctua NH-U14S Review
     Thu, Feb 20 2014 | 8:31A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At idle (stock and overclocked), the Noctua NH-U14S was able to deliver temperatures consistent with the highest performing air coolers in this comparison field, which contains coolers costing much more. Looking at the stock load results, the NH-U14S does a fine job of removing the thermal load generated by the hot-running Haswell processor and keeps the temps within two degrees of the liquid cooled AIO (All In One) Nepton 280L. When overclocked, it is only three degress higher than the 280L, and still well below the thermal danger zone. And it is close, very close, to the performance of the much larger D14."

MSI Z87M Gaming Motherboard Review
     Wed, Feb 19 2014 | 2:15P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,We review the the MSI Z87M Gaming Motherboard. The Z87M Gaming is made on a Micro-ATX form factor at 24.4 x 24.4 CM, that means you can seat a processor as powerful as the Core i7 4770K onto a motherboard this size. MSI has been going strong with their Gaming series motherboards alright, and props where props are due, they are excellent platforms for a modern and fast PC. Especially when you will learn it still has a fully fetched PCIe x16 slots, KillerNIC Gigabit Ethernet, USB 3.0 and heck even four SATA 6 Gbps ports."

Cougar CMX V.3 850W Power Supply Review @HiTech Legion
     Wed, Feb 19 2014 | 11:50A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Cougar CMX 850W PSU is an attractive PSU. The shell of the CMX 850W by Cougar is painted in a stylish black with red accents and are branded with the Cougar name and signature cat profile image, that make for a simple yet stylish change from the bricks I am used to. The CMX 850W is semi-modular which means users can use only the cables they need. Cougar has opted to use a double ball bearing 140mm fan in this PSU. The CMX PSUs are 80 plus Bronze rated (up to 89%), are protected by OCP, SCP, OVP, UVP, OPP. The main capacitor is a 105C Japanese capacitor for better reliability and durability. /"

AMD Radeon R7 265 2GB Video Card Review @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Feb 19 2014 | 9:07A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last week AMD beefed up their entry-level and mid-range graphics cards with the introduction of the AMD Radeon R7 250X and the Radeon R7 265. It appears that AMD did this to help fill in both the performance and price between the Radeon R7 260x and the Radeon R9 270 ahead of NVIDIA?s rumored GeForce GTX 750 Ti launch. AMD did not send us their Radeon R7 265 reference card, but instead shipped us the Sapphire Dual-X R7 265 2GB GDDR5 OC with Boost. Read on to see how this card performs!"

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.
