A Futurelooks News Flash - Cooler Master HAF XM Mid-Tower Enclosure Review
     Wed, May 02 2012 | 8:11A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since Coolermaster excels at making enclosures for the enthusiasts, it was only a matter of time before we saw a mid-tower version of the NVIDIA certified full tower HAF X. Originally seen at CES 2012 this year, it?s much like the HAF X minus a couple 5.25? bays. It?s also designed for standard ATX sized motherboards as opposed to larger XL-ATX ones like the original HAF X and there are some updates that give it great cooling potential but still accommodates those new massive new graphics cards. Let?s see how it does! *"

Kingston HyperX 3K 120GB SSD Review @ Vortez
     Tue, May 01 2012 | 10:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So the HyperX 3K SSD is available in four different size capacities - 90GB, 120GB, 240GB and 480GB. Both using the Sandforce SF-2281 Controller, something used in an assortment of popular SSDs such as the OCZ Vertex 3, Patriot Pyro and Corsair Force 3 series.

ASUS P8Z77-V Deluxe Benchmark Performance @ Benchmark Reviews
     Tue, May 01 2012 | 4:19P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The introduction of the first member of the new Cougar Point chipset family, the Z77 Express, happened several weeks before the availability of the Sandy BridgeCPUs they were designed for. This led to review sites having to test new chipsets with older Sandy Bridge processors. While Z77 motherboards are perfectly capable of running Sandy Bridge CPUs, they`re really designed to showcase Ivy Bridge. Now that Benchmark Reviews actually has a Core i7-3770K CPU in hand, we can show you how it performs in ASUS` new P8Z77-V Deluxe motherboard, a top-of-the-line product with so many features it`s hard to keep track of them all."

CM QuickFire Pro Mechanical Keyboard Review
     Tue, May 01 2012 | 4:19P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I tend to prefer discrete media keys where I can reach up with one hand to control volume, next, stop, pause, mute, etc. I like lighting as long as it is done well. The indicator lights are a bit on the fail side of things but not a major complaint. I`d like to have a full set of keys lit up but again, some over none is better than nothing. As a BluePanda, I clearly prefer a change in color as well but red seems to be the new hot thing. I enjoyed the keyboard overall and the overall feel keeps me happy. It`s one well worth getting at your fingertips for a spin, especially if you`ve still been waiting to try out the mechanical feel."

Corsair Vengeance 1500 Gaming Headset Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Tue, May 01 2012 | 4:19P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair is well-known for making exceptional computer memory. Although, as we frequently see in today?s market, companies are expanding their product lines. Corsair has created the Vengeance gaming line which encompasses headsets, keyboards, mice, memory, and cases. We?ve taken a look at the Vengeance K60 Gaming Keyboard, and the Vengeance M60 Gaming Mouse. Finally we?re checking out the Vegeance 1500 headset. It is a USB stereo headset that uses Dolby Headphone to create a virtual surround environment up to 7.1 channels. With 50mm drivers it?s sure to deliver big sound, and be comfortable at the same time with memory foam behind each earcup. But the key is how well it performs. Check out the review to find out."

Cooler Master Quick Fire Rapid Review - XSReviews
     Tue, May 01 2012 | 4:19P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Mechanical keyboards have become increasingly popular over the last year, particularly as peripheral manufacturers sponsor pro-gaming teams, and today we`ve got one more: The somewhat redundantly titled Cooler Master Quick Fire Rapid, a tenkeyless mechanical keyboard available with your choice of Cherry MX Blue, Brown, Red and Black switches. Like many other manufacturers, Cooler Master started out in a specialised area (cooling) but has since branched out into a number of different areas, including peripherals. Corsair has followed a similar path and impressed me with their Corsair Vengeance suite of mechanical keyboards and gaming mice; can Cooler Master do the same? A link to the article would be much appreciated."

Intel Core i7-3770 Ivy Bridge CPU
     Tue, May 01 2012 | 2:26P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The update to Sandy Bridge brings 22nm fabrication technology, a souped up integrated graphics chip, and a host of minor improvements to LGA1155. Best of all, Ivy Bridge is backwards compatible with series 6 motherboards and doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

Ascend GPU & CPU Performance Test
     Tue, May 01 2012 | 2:25P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Most of our game performance reviews feature triple-A blockbusters, but we're changing pace for this write-up as we examine Tribes: Ascend, a free-to-play shooter released by Hi-Rez Studios on April 12. The Tribes franchise has deep roots in multiplayer shooter history. Considered a successor to Tribes 2, Tribes: Ascend embraces its heritage by incorporating the same fast-paced combat, tons of maps, weapons, vehicles and unique traversal mechanics. The game is built on a modified Unreal Engine 3 and only supports DirectX 9 graphics, but the recommended specs are relatively high, calling for a GeForce GTX 560 or Radeon HD 6950 with a quad-core processor. Considering those requirements, we're hoping the game gives our test hardware a nice workout.

Asus Sabertooth X79 Mainboard Review
     Tue, May 01 2012 | 2:24P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A mainboard with rich accessories bundle, convenient layout, extensive functionality and 5-year warranty cannot be bad by definition. However, it is only a few small steps away from being named an absolute ideal.

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.
