REVIEW: BitFenix Raider @ PureOverclock
     Sun, May 13 2012 | 4:19P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
From budget brawlers like the Merc that pack an undeniable bang for your buck, to full bodied and full strength towers like the Colossus full tower, and a fan favorite the Shinobi, BitFenix has had quite a successful run of late. But the mid-tower market is a very tough one to crack, and the Raider is the latest from BitFenix that looks to continue their successful trend in this mid-range market. Can the Raider live up to its siblings standard of excellence? Will it survive the Pure OC hardware grinder? We will find out soon enough."

Patriot Pyro SE 240GB SSD Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Sun, May 13 2012 | 4:19P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Patriot hasn`t been all that active in the SSD market lately but their new SandForce-based Pyro SE has taken the market by storm. In its 240GB form, it runs with some of the best drives on the market but costs substantially less than one may expect. * *"

ASRock aim to deliver this with their X79 Extreme9 and today it is on our test bench as we put it through a selection of real world and synthetic tests.

Digital Storm ODE Level 4 System Review
     Sun, May 13 2012 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
How do you make the experience of buying from a boutique system builder easier than it already is? If you're Digital Storm, you answer that question by offering a line of pre-configured machines that are fully loaded to meet your budget and ready to ship in 72 hours. Not only do you save the time and energy required to build your own system from scratch, you also skip the exercise in picking out each individual component and then crossing your fingers hoping you've made solid selections. Digital Storm opted to send us their top-of-the-line Level 4 configuration outfitted with an overclocked Intel Core i7 3930K processor cooled by a Corsair H100 liquid CPU cooler, 16GB of Corsair Vengeance DDR3-1600 memory, a 120GB Corsair Force GT solid state drive (flanked by a 1TB Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 drive for storage chores), two AMD Radeon HD 7970 graphics cards sitting pretty in Crossfire, a Blu-ray reader, and other odds and ends wrapped in an attractive Corsair Graphite Series 600T white mid-tower chassis with LED lighting...

11 computer cases tested, from £70 - £110
     Sun, May 13 2012 | 12:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Computer cases still get plenty of attention from both industry and consumers. Other PC product areas are steadily shrinking, but new brands of computer cases still regularly appear. The result is that you still see innovation in this area. Especially brands that cost a bit more truly give you your money’s worth. We tested 11 cases on build quality, noise production, and their ability to get rid of hot air.

LaCie 5big Office+ review: back-up for 25 PCs
     Sun, May 13 2012 | 12:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After reading this review you might wonder why you would need to buy a device like this. If you're looking for a NAS to quickly share files, there are other products that are better in terms of pure speed. The performance with the NAS Performance Tester is good, but the 5big Office+ didn't do as well with the more practically-oriented Intel NAS Performance Toolkit. Synology or QNAP have products that are better suited in that case. But if you need a good back-up solution for a small business with an Active Directory and up to 25 PCs, then this is a good solution. The fact that it also looks good, is an added bonus.

Cooler Master CM690 II Advanced Case Review
     Sun, May 13 2012 | 12:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today I’ll be taking a look at the Cooler Master CM690 Advanced 3.0 Case. This is not one of their latest cases but seeing its price tag (ranges from 80-90 euro) makes it a interesting buy. Looking at the specs, it offers everything you would expect from a decent case. Cooler Master has been around for a while now and they hit their 20th anniversary this year, the company has remained faithful to its mission, emerging as a world leader in products and services for companies dealing with devices where heat issues must be resolved. Their product line ranges beyond just cooling products, cases and power supplies and even gaming peripherals like keyboards and mouses is included in their line up.

HP Folio 13 @ ocaholic
     Sun, May 13 2012 | 9:38A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
HP is one of the latecomers in the ultrabook market. Nevertheless the worlds largest PC manufacturer has an interesting alternative to the competitors models in its portfolio. With 1.49 kilogramm it isn`t the lightest model but available but therefore it comes with a unique and decent design."

Gigabyte GA-7PESH1 powered by 2x Xeon E5 2690 under real World workloads @ ocaholic
     Sun, May 13 2012 | 9:15A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Instead of an enthusiast motherboard, this time we will look at a workstation motherboard. Meanwhile it is not a entry level motherboard, Gigabyte provided us with their latest high end motherboard which features up to 512 GB of DDR3 memory running at 1600 MHz, two 8 core / 16 threads processor, a high end LSI SAS controller and more. This time we will not only review the motherboard but also benchmark this dual Xeon Octocore setup under real world workloads/situations. Feel the power!"

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.
