nMedia HTPC 7000B SFF Chassis Review @MissingRemote
     Fri, Mar 09 2012 | 10:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
nMEDIAPC has made a name for itself in the home theater PC (HTPC) community for consistently delivering well-built, good-looking, and reasonably-priced chassis comfortable in the A/V stack. Offering a brushed aluminum front panel and a street price of $80, at first glance the HTPC 7000B seems to carry on this tradition. Coupled with two 120mm fans, we should expect excellent cooling from this full-height enclosure, but with a depth of just over twelve inches there are sure to be trade-offs where the form factor is both an asset and a liability; keep reading to find out how this case measures up. *"

Posted by: STAFF
"When we first heard about the best name ever for a tablet PC, or possibly any component, we had visions of a robotic looking blue and red case... sadly, well kind of, this proved not to be and instead Asus released a sleek looking update to the original Transformer that we reviewed last year. The Prime is one of the world's first Android tablets with a quad-core processor and is running Android 4.0 and today we have one on our test bench for review."

X79 Motherboard Roundup: ASRock, ASUS, Gigabyte
     Fri, Mar 09 2012 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel’s X58 chipset made for great platform performance, and even though the chip maker has unleashed many more chipsets since the X58 came out, there hasn’t been a true successor in the high-end of their product line-up (not even the Z68 chipset) until now. The X79 chipset looks to pick up the X58’s poll position, so we decided to bench test a few motherboards from ASRock, ASUS, and Gigabyte to see how Intel's new flagship performs.

Configuring a Windows 8 Virtual Machine
     Fri, Mar 09 2012 | 9:00A | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the launch of Windows 8's Consumer Preview, you're probably itching to spend some quality time with Microsoft's latest operating system. Although you may have already downloaded the ISO, we bet some of you haven't decided how you're going to install it. Fortunately, running Windows 8 in a virtual machine solves all that: it won't remove your current OS, you can access it anytime you want without rebooting and it doesn't require any extra hardware. What's more, the test OS can be deleted in only a few mouse clicks.

Lenovo IdeaPad A1 Review @ TechReviewSource.com

Posted by: STAFF
With the IdeaPad Tablet A1, Lenovo has attempted to make a fun and easy-to-use 7-inch tablet for the masses. Unfortunately for Lenovo, Amazon has already cornered that market with the Kindle Fire. The IdeaPad A1 is not only $50 more, but it offers up a subpar, lower-resolution screen, an aging OS, and middling performance."

MSI X79A-GD65 (8D) LGA 2011 ATX Motherboard Review
     Thu, Mar 08 2012 | 4:33P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There is always a steep price with upgrading to the newest processors and motherboards, and this is where the X79A-GD65 (8D) may have difficulties against other competitively-priced offerings from Gigabyte and ASUS. Users with deep pockets won`t blink an eye at dropping $300 on a motherboard, but combine that with purchasing quad-channel memory and an i7-3820 and the entire upgrade could cost close to $800 for only three components.

Antec VP350 Power Supply Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Thu, Mar 08 2012 | 4:25P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Basiq power supply series from Antec is targeted to users with serious budget restrictions. The new VP350 and VP450 models are the most entry-level power supplies offered by Antec, as they don`t have a PFC circuit or 80 Plus certification. We`ve already reviewed the VP450, which achieved terrific performance for its class. Now it is time for us to test the 350 W model."
