Gigabyte Radeon HD 7970 Super OverClock Review
     Sun, Jul 29 2012 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Celebrating Tahiti's "half birthday" last month, AMD relaunched its Radeon HD 7970 with a "GHz Edition" that increased the reference design's core clock speed from 925MHz to 1GHz with the intention of allowing the company to claim it offered the world's fastest GPU. But the festivities were short-lived for several reasons. Now Gigabyte has taken matters into its own hands with what seems to be a far more interesting solution. Armed with five fans, nine heatpipes and a huge vapor chamber, one might consider the HD 7970 SOC to be overkill, and to that we say "hell yes!" Our inner enthusiast has a penchant for all things impractical -- even if they're tough to recommend from a value perspective. Read on to find out what Gigabyte's premium offering brings to the table.

CM Storm Trigger Keyboard Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Sun, Jul 29 2012 | 9:03A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we tested the CM Storm QuickFire Pro keyboard, we pointed out that it was a simple model, with neither extra USB ports nor programmable functions, and it had only a few illuminated keys. Now the company is releasing the Trigger, which is basically a more advanced version of the QuickFire Pro, with everything that was missing previously. Let`s describe the product and then evaluate the new features."

Cooler Master HAF XM mid-tower Case Review
     Sun, Jul 29 2012 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cooler Master, one of the leading case manufacturers, has recently launched their latest addition to the HAF series, the HAF XM. The HAF range targets gamers, wanting functionality, maximum hardware compatibility and excellent cooling under any circumstances. Modern high end gaming setups usually comprise multi GPU setups, big CPU coolers and likewise power supplies. Case designs have to be constantly adapted to suit the needs of its end users. Easiest solution is to opt straight for a big tower case. Having more than adequate space, ready to being stuffed with the biggest and baddest hardware available. However the size of these cases can be way out of proportion to fit under your desk. A pain in the butt to transport as they mostly weigh a ton or they are just too expensive. With the mid tower HAF series Cooler Master has addressed most of the aforementioned statements. Time to explore what the new HAF XM has to offer.

FSP Aurum Xilenser 500W Fanless PSU review
     Sun, Jul 29 2012 | 9:00A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The FSP Aurum Xilenser 500W has no fan whatsoever, and the housing consists mostly of empty space. The power supply is therefore able to take advantage of the naturally created airflow. Even the heatsinks are quite modest. FSP has tried to make the design so efficient that it creates almost no heat that needs to be dissipated.

Intel 910 Series 800GB PCI-E SSD Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Sat, Jul 28 2012 | 10:29A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel`s new 910 Series enterprise-class SSDs are meant to dominate an emerging market before their competition can even get off the ground. Boasting transfer speeds of up to 2GB/s, a PCI-E interface for ultra quick communication, class leading longevity and multiple performance modes, this is very much the storage market`s technological bleeding edge."

[Tech ARP] [ Tech ARP] BIOS Option Of The Week - CPU to PCI Post Write
     Sat, Jul 28 2012 | 9:37A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meager beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition. Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend. This week, we will be taking a look at the *CPU to PCI Post Write* setting."

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.
