Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H Socket 1155 Motherboard @ Pro-Clockers
     Mon, Aug 27 2012 | 9:20A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Granted, we love the UD3H and all its features but we would be a fool to pass up the chance to take a look at one of the higher models. The Z77X-UD5H comes in two different favors one being the `regular` one and the other is a Wi-Fi models, we will be look at the `regular` model. The UD5H is aimed at the enthusiast as well as the overclockers and offers a few more features than that of the UD3H. There are more SATA and USB ports, more cooling, firewire and a host of other features that we will get into as we review the motherboard more in detail. Tony Walker Owner/Operator of Pro-Clockers

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti Round-Up: ZOTAC
     Sun, Aug 26 2012 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA continues to flesh out their desktop GPU line-up today, with yet another high-performance graphics card based on the Kepler microarchitecture. To date, we’ve seen the GeForce GTX 670, GTX 680, and monstrous GTX 690 come to market, all sporting GK104 GPUs in one form or another. The new GeForce GTX 660 Ti we’ll be showing you here, although more affordable than its higher-end counterparts, continues the trend and also sports a GK104. As you probably expect though, certain portions of the GPU on the GeForce GTX 660 Ti are disabled or non-functional, so it’s not quite as capable as its more powerful brethren in the performance department. Its feature set, however, is identical...

GCN offerings of AMD
     Sun, Aug 26 2012 | 12:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nvidia's Kepler, although much later to the 28nm game, has proven itself to be a credible competitor to the GCN offerings of AMD, excelling in mainstream gaming performance and energy efficiencies. What happens if you take the already cut-down 7 SMX GK104 die of the GTX 670 and curtail its memory bandwidth? Well, we get a still surprisingly strong GTX 660Ti that can take on the big boys when overclocked.

Kingston HyperX T1 2x8GB DDR3-2133 MHz CL11 @ Ocaholic
     Sun, Aug 26 2012 | 10:39A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Very recently, we discovered that despite their enormous capacity, 8GB DDR3 modules can also provide a pleasant overclocking experience. This fact had opened the floodgates for manufacturers moving into the high-density segment trying to grab their piece of the pie."

     Sun, Aug 26 2012 | 9:20A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So lets say you`re an enthusiast. Lets say you want to push your rig to the max. You always have the fastest processor and the highest video card(s). However your RAM is a measly 1600MHz or 1866MHz. Lets look at maxing that out with a 2400MHz kit. G.Skill has released a Dual Channel 2400MHz kit which is what we`re taking a look at today. The 2400MHz RAM is often only meant for the enthusiast market (and often with an enthusiast price tag) however this 8GB kit comes in under $100. Lets move on to see if this kit is worthy of your enthusiast rig."

Xigmatek Gigas mATX Case Review
     Sat, Aug 25 2012 | 2:43P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With all opinions aside, and looking at the numbers themselves, the case does well. Despite the seemingly lack of air holes for airflow the case actually cools quite well; after all it is a massive heatsink itself and I have the feeling the small size makes it somewhat of a wind tunnel inside. The case is built rather well, and as long as you can puzzle the pieces back together it holds up to a rather decent build; a silver for the silver."

The new ARMv8 architecture
     Sat, Aug 25 2012 | 12:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink

The new ARMv8 architecture is classically British; a clean and elegant 64-bit instruction set, with compatibility for 32-bit software. The 64-bit mode eliminates many complicated and awkward features and will foster a larger and more diverse ARM ecosystem with new licensees and applications. Our new article examines the changes in ARMv8 in detail:

Plextor M5 Pro 128GB review: fastest SSD currently around
     Sat, Aug 25 2012 | 12:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Plextor M5 Pro 128GB is the fastest 120/128 GB SSD that we've ever tested. It set new records in PCMark Vantage, PCMark7 and AS SSD. Generally speaking, this SSD is faster than any SandForce-based models, faster than any Marvell 88SS9174-based models, faster than the Samsung SSD 830 and even a bit faster than the OCZ Vertex 4 128 GB which is built around the same chip. Add to that five years of warranty and a fitting package (bracket and data migration software) and we can easily conclude that the Plextor M5 Pro is the ultimate SSD currently on the market.

Posted by: STAFF
If you're looking for a NAS with room for plenty of disks that's also fast and user-friendly, then the new Synology DS-1512+ and DS-1812+ are two models that should be on your wish list. They come equipped with the very comprehensive DSM 4.0 firmware, with space for either five or eight hard disks. You do have to reach pretty deep into your wallet for these NAS devices.

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.
