MSI Z97 XPOWER AC - Extreme Overclocking for the new Haswell - Bjorn3d.com
     Thu, Aug 14 2014 | 7:43A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Oh Overclocking, it seems to be whats makes the world go round some days and something that many motherboard manufacturers have really started to embrace as easier ways were found to do it. It used to be back in the old days (not that long ago but it makes it feel more special to reference as so) that overclocking required a ton of work, modding and hacking away at things to make it happen. Now days overclocking is simple, they even have buttons to do overclocks for you. And with recent chipset and CPU revisions it has become a game of binning chips to find a good one rather than tuning all night and days on end with a QX9650 because you know theres more in it, or getting a specific board because it tends to clock better. At least for now those days are gone and its all very heavily based on the quality of the chip to control just how far your overclocking journey will go. The board we have in front of us today, the MSI Z97 XPOWER AC, is designed to ensure you can squeeze every ounce of performance out of your CPU and should you get a awesome gem of a CPU it has all of the necessary parts in place to ensure that you can freeze it and tear through the perceived limits toward world record glory.

AMD A10-7800 and A6-7400K Review: AMD Rounds Out the Kaveri Line
     Thu, Aug 14 2014 | 2:51A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD is still in the fight. Even though AMD and Intel hardly view each other as their primary target, they still exist in the same space together fighting for marketshare. AMD brings a lot of features to the table while Intel brings excellent power consumption and IPC. Users need to have a very good idea where they want to spend their hard earned dollars, as each competitor has advantages over the other. AMD does have an advantage in overall cost, typically because the motherboards for the FM2+ socket infrastructure are significantly cheaper than the competing Intel boards based on features."

JBL Synchros S700 Headphones Review @ TestFreaks
     Thu, Aug 14 2014 | 1:56A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Its been a long time since Ive been treated to a real nice set of cans, my last pair being from House of Marley are nice enough and suit my style but have some limitations in the sound department. JBL are well known for producing quality sound gear so the Synchros S700 were a natural progression for me in search of the ultimate headphones. They are available in both black and white, Im glad I got the one to match perfectly my Galaxy S4 which Ill be using for most of my listening. I wanted something that not only sounded amazing, they looked cool too. But I didnt want what everyone else had. At around $300 they wont break the bank either. "

Luxa2 GroovyT Magic Boom Box - BCCHardware
     Wed, Aug 13 2014 | 3:53P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The GroovyT possesses supernatural powers that can amaze and leave you in audio awe. That, at least is what the marketing department for Luxa2 claims. The reality is a little bit different. While the setup and connecting the device to your phone is simple, the audio quality can be a little off. There is an Android App that helps you tune your phone so that the sound is much better than your stock music player may produce. For the GroovyT, this App is basically an equalizer that will let you turn down your bass..."

Asus MeMO Pad 7 (2014) Review
     Wed, Aug 13 2014 | 12:03P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The small form factor tablet market has gotten pretty crowded, particularly when it comes to budget models, and while the generally fantastic Google Nexus 7 can be had for around $215 nowadays, going below that usually involves some compromises. Today, I’m checking out Asus' attempt at a low-cost Android tablet and whether it’s worth your cash.

AMD A10-7800 Kaveri APU Review
     Wed, Aug 13 2014 | 12:02P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD promised many new APUs when unveiling its Kaveri architecture in January but until now was only able to deliver two, the $160 A10-7700K and $170 A10-7850K. It's a little confusing to see the company pitching an updated version of a product range that was never properly launched but on the bright side, AMD's Kaveri update seems a little more substantial than Intel's recent Haswell refresh. Today we'll be looking at the $155 A10-7800, which comes in 45W or 65W TDP modes and has a full-blown R7 GPU featuring 8 CUs with 512 SPUs and 32 TAUs like the unlocked A10-7850K.

Intel Pentium Anniversary Edition Review & Overclocking Build Guide
     Wed, Aug 13 2014 | 12:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For more than a decade tech-savvy users on a budget would commonly buy a sub-$100 CPU and achieve performance comparable to $200-$300 chips by overclocking. These days Intel locks down its lower end parts, but to mark the 20th anniversary of its Pentium brand, they've released a fully unlocked dual-core Pentium G3258 for $72 -- just what the overclocking community has been waiting for. We'll put it through its paces in a couple of builds of our own.
