Making A Easy-To-Setup $50 Linux Multi-Seat Computer
     Wed, May 16 2012 | 8:11A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While it`s improved a lot recently, in the past setting up a multi-seat computer has been a pain in the ass with a lot of manual configurations needed and other peculiar steps to get the hardware/software combination working right. What if the process were a lot simpler? What if new seats could be added to a computer at a very low cost and the setup was effectively out of the box to the point that it`s truly plug-and-play? Well, we are now effectively at that point on the Linux desktop and there is a new Kickstarter effort to help in that initiative."

Toshiba Qosmio X775-Q7170 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Wed, May 16 2012 | 5:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Toshiba Qosmio X775-Q7170 gaming laptop offers great sound and 30-fps gaming, but we wish it had more horsepower and higher resolution. That makes it a medium-priced option for users seeking medium-speed gaming and medium-high-definition (720p rather than 1080p) video viewing, and we`re only medium enthusiastic about it."

     Tue, May 15 2012 | 5:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The moment many of us have been waiting for the past decade is finally here and so Diablo III by Blizzard is has arrived in its retail form (the beta was good but not quite tweaked). In any case because this was an event unlike most (we did wait for almost a decade) i was hoping i could review something related with it today as i did yesterday with the SteelSeries Diablo III headset but unfortunately since there aren`t that many Diablo III branded peripherals out there yet this just wasn`t possible. Instead today we will be taking a look at one of the latest midi towers to hit the market by Antec, the GAME ONE."

Cooler Master HAF XM Mid Tower Case Review @ Bigbruin.com
     Tue, May 15 2012 | 5:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
From start to finish the design of the Cooler Master HAF XM is top notch. There are no sharp edges, everything fits well together, nothing in it feel flimsy, and every detail that I could think of has been thought of in its design. If you`re building a system with multiple video cards, hard drives, water cooling, and multiple optical drives, this case can handle it."

ECS Z77H2-AX Black Extreme Motherboard Review @ Madshrimps
     Tue, May 15 2012 | 5:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Z77H2-AX Motherboard from ECS has gold accents all over the place, comes with a clean design and the offered hardware bundle should be enough for most users; regarding the software which ships with it, most is in trial version mode and we would have preferred to see more which could have added value to the product like THX TruStudio Pro. The UEFI interface can be used with ease, except the RAM section, which is more difficult to use compared to the one found on ASRock motherboards."

GIGABYTE GTX680 Windforce 3x OC Review @ Vortez
     Tue, May 15 2012 | 5:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We`ve seen a few cards now with the Windforce cooler and each has impressed us with its cooling ability and acoustic reduction of reference designs. The 3x Windforce cooler on the GTX680 has been used before, notably on the AMD HD7950 where it performed extremely well so we are hoping for similar results with the GTX680 it is tasked with cooling this time around."

Intel DZ77GA-70K Motherboard Components @ Benchmark Reviews
     Tue, May 15 2012 | 5:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel always sends reviewers their top-end motherboards when new CPUs are introduced. Called Extreme Boards, these motherboards are designed for extreme performance and festooned with skulls. The past Intel Extreme Boards I`ve looked at came with early, buggy BIOSes; performed relatively poorly, and had very few additional features other than those provided by the CPU and chipset. So I wasn`t expecting much from the Intel DZ77GA-70K Z77 Express motherboard, but was amazed to find that this time, Intel might have a winner on its hands. Join me as Benchmark Reviews takes a look at Intel`s new Z77 Express standard bearer."

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.
