REVIEW: Enermax DreamBass Genie @ PureOverclock
     Thu, Mar 29 2012 | 11:12P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The DreamBass Genie Audio Amplifier is designed to improve your audio experience for people on the go, or something small and inexpensive. It`s a simple USB plug-in, and enhances bass and full surround support. It`s certainly very tiny and affordable, so let`s take a quick look at the DreamBass Genie."

     Thu, Mar 29 2012 | 11:07P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Six months ago, VisionTek took on an ambitious task of trying to tap into this arena. The first introduction of their Ultimate Performance Memory Modules went very smoothly and we were very impressed with the performance and ability. Today, VisionTek presents their new Ultimate Performance 16GB 1866MHz CL10 Quad Channel Memory Kit, and we have them in our lab for testing."

     Thu, Mar 29 2012 | 10:47P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Corsair releases a new product line, it`s never for a me too reason. Instead, the company clearly strives to deliver interesting products that people, especially gamers, crave. The Vengeance line-up of keyboards and mice is no exception, and we`re kicking off our coverage of them with the K60 mechanical keyboard."

Cooler Master NotePal X3 Silent Laptop Cooling Pad Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Thu, Mar 29 2012 | 9:39P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Cooler Master NotePal X3 combines performance, elegance, and silence in a laptop cooling pad. The NotePal X3 features a large 200mm fan with a blue LED. The LED can be toggled on/off and the 200mm fan has adjustable speed. The X3 uses an aerodynamic design that can enhance cooling performance up to 20%. Cooler Master built the X3 with a front vent that directs exhausted air under the wrists to keep hands cool and dry. There are also retractable feet to enhance the height for a better ergonomic design.///"

HIS Radeon HD 7750 1GB Video Card Review
     Thu, Mar 29 2012 | 4:25P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we`re looking at the HIS HD 7750 which comes in at $109.99 putting it in that lower mid-range sector. As time has gone on, though, we`ve seen these cheaper cards offer us quite strong performance. We felt a little disappointed with how AMD launched the new series, though, and the HD 7770 on a whole due to the price point. We wonder if the cheaper HD 7750 can stand as it hits this lower price point. Before we find out what kind of performance we`re able to get out of the new model, the first thing we need to do is take a look at the package. From there we`ll move into checking out the card and then we`ll take a closer look at the specifications and see how the model compares to its big brother, the HD 7770."

GIGABYTE X79-UD5 Motherboard Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Thu, Mar 29 2012 | 4:10P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Unlike some of the ultra-pricey X79 motherboards that we have reviewed so far, the GIGABYTE X79-UD5 carries a fairly reasonable price tag, yet still has an exhaustive specs list. Does it come short in any area? We find out in this review. "

Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 LGA 2011 EATX Motherboard Review
     Thu, Mar 29 2012 | 4:09P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This is the second X79-based motherboard I`ve evaluated, and this platform continues to impress me with solid gaming and overall performance results. The upgraded 3D BIOS was a pleasure to use after I played with the UEFI a bit to find out where all the overclocking options were located. I also had to learn to use the roll-over functions on the main 3D BIOS screen because I didn`t notice how they worked when I initially entered the BIOS."

Gaming Friday: Getting to Level 20 in Realm of the Mad God @ ThinkComputers.org
     Thu, Mar 29 2012 | 4:07P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just a few weeks ago we talked about Realm of the Mad God, the ?co-op fantasy mmo shooter? from Wild Shadow Studios. Even since then a lot of us here at ThinkComputers have been playing the game. I myself have unlocked all of the character classes, had many level 20 characters, explored many of the dungeons and even defeated Oryx a few times. Even though I?ve had some awesome characters with great gear I ended up dying and when you die in the game you are permanently dead. This is a real bummer, but it does keep the game interested. When you start a new character the first thing you want to do is get back up to level 20 so in this Gaming Friday I will be going over some of the easiest way to reach level 20."

G.Skill RipjawsZ DDR3-2133 16GB Quad Channel Memory Kit Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Thu, Mar 29 2012 | 4:05P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With Intel?s X79 chipset we started to see quad channel DDR3 memory. It is crazy to think that in just a short period of time we have gone from dual channel to quad channel memory. Not long after Intel released the X79 platform we started to see quad channel kits designed and certified specifically for the platform. Today we are taking a look at one such kit, the G.Skill RipjawsZ DDR3-2133 16GB quad channel kit (F3-17000CL9Q-16GBZH). This kit features four 4GB modules that run at 2133MHz with timings of 9-11-10-28. Read on as we take a look at our first quad channel memory kit."

FSP Aurum Pro 850 W Power Supply Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Thu, Mar 29 2012 | 4:04P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Aurum Pro is the latest 80 Plus Gold power supply series from FSP, available in 850 W, 1,000 W, and 1,200 W versions. For these higher-wattage models, FSP decided to use a completely new design. Instead of using the cheaper active clamp reset forward design they used on their Aurum Gold and Aurum CM Gold series, they decided to go with a resonant design using two transformers. Let`s see if the 850 W model is worth our recommendation."

Corsair Vengeance K90 Performance MMO Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review
     Thu, Mar 29 2012 | 4:03P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
That was my way of thinking, at least until I actually got to play around with and enjoy playing around with one of the two keyboards that Corsair just sent me. I spent quite a bit of time playing with the keyboards and mice at CES, but you just got the essence of what these boards were all about. They were fully functional at that time, but ten to fifteen minutes of play time does not give you the full feel of this product. Not only did Corsair steeping up to offer a reasonable priced solution to ponder in the mechanical keyboard segment, this keyboard seems to feel better every time I use it and that is something my fingers will say never happened on any of my rubber dome switch keyboards. In reality, with prolonged use of prior boards, my fingers did feel the brunt of the exchange between key and finger. The Vengeance keyboard we will be looking at today is the K90 Performance MMO mechanical gaming keyboard. Don`t let the long title fool you, this keyboard can and is used by many people who aren`t currently into any MMO`s, like me who is waiting for Guild Wars 2 before I get back into MMO gaming. That doesn`t make this product any less appealing, just that it has potential to grow to my gaming habits once GW2 releases."

Cooler Master Silent Pro Hybrid 1300 Watt Modular Power Supply Review @Hi Tech Legion
     Thu, Mar 29 2012 | 1:10P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Silent Pro Hybrid 1300 Watt PSU, Cooler Master has actually added usability features to a category typically limited to simply watts and amps. The Cooler Master Silent Pro Hybrid 1300 Watt PSU goes beyond being an 80+ Gold, 105A single 12V rail behemoth, and incorporates a 7V chassis fan rail along with a 5.25 Dual Fan Control Module. After all, if you have need for 1300 watts of power, odds are good you are going to have more than a fan or two running in your case, and what better place to power and control them from than directly from the PSU? In addition to a single-channel, continuously variable controller for up to three chassis fans, the fan control module offers PSU fan control in addition to PSU Fanless Mode./"

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.
