GIGABYTE Aivia Osmium Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review
     Fri, Sep 07 2012 | 11:52A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

Sapphire Radeon HD 7750 Low Profile Review
     Fri, Sep 07 2012 | 11:48A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The limits for the board within TriXX are +50% on the power limit (which is quite high) and 1225 mV for the core voltage (which is well within reason). I cranked both sliders to the maximum values before starting my hunt for the highest core and memory frequencies. Because this card starts out with low frequencies I immediately started bumping up the clocks in quite large increments. After a few iterations of testing and tuning I ended up with an overclock of 440MHz on the core (+55%) and 315MHz on the memory (+28%). This is an absolutely massive overclock! The temperatures, as you`ll see later, leave a bit to be desired but aren`t terribly unreasonable for such a tiny card (though you`d likely want a larger cooler if you ran these clocks 24/7)."

Sentey Extreme Division GS-6050 II Halcon Black Case Review @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Sep 07 2012 | 10:39A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sentey happens to be one of the newer companies out there when it comes to manufacturing components. Sentey might be still an up and comer, but they currently make cases, power supplies, video cards, and case fans. One of their latest gaming case offerings is the Extreme Division GS-6050 II Halcon Black and that just happens to be what we are reviewing today. This case is an updated version of the original GS-6050 Halcon, so expect to see the addition of SuperSpeed USB 3.0, improved cooling and a new side panel..."

Damage Inc: Pacific Squadron WWII @ Benchmark Reviews
     Fri, Sep 07 2012 | 9:53A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Aerial warfare first became a major component of combat during the Second World War, amidst a transitional period in motorized flight that had only been created forty years prior. There had been mixed results in the previous World War, but the enormity of WWII pushed Nations to invest their best engineering into airborne combat operations. The fight was everywhere, but it was most efficient from the air above. Mad Catz captures this historical time in the flight simulation video game Damage Inc: Pacific Squadron WWII. Each collector`s edition kit includes the popular Saitek Pacific AV8R FlightStick, imposing realistic flight controls into action for either simulation or arcade modes."

Gigabyte Aivia Krypton Mouse Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Fri, Sep 07 2012 | 9:34A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Who would have thought that Krypton, the home planet of Superman, would be reduced to the tiny size of a gaming-grade mouse? Well, that`s the name of the new model from Gigabyte`s Aivia line. It features an innovation right out of the mind of Jor-El, the scientist father of the Man of Steel: two interchangeable under plates, each one with a different set of feet (Teflon and ceramic) that delivers a different sliding control. We`ll talk about this characteristic and other features after we describe the product."

The ASUS Zenbook Prime UX31A is a great laptop in theory. It offers excellent day-to-day performance (gaming excluded), a wonderful display and respectable battery life.

Antec High Current Gamer HCG-520M 520W Power Supply Review @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Sep 07 2012 | 9:23A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to performance, the Antec HCG-520M 520 Watt power supply leaves mixed feelings. Electrically, the HCG-520M excels over ripple suppression, displaying outstanding filtering and thus there is virtually no ripple at all, but the regulation on the minor lines is weak, allowing the lines to fluctuate by..."

SSD News: Kingston 64GB Wi-Drive Review - A PC Users Solution To Mac Storage
     Thu, Sep 06 2012 | 4:08P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
David Leong as part of Computex Taipei 2011 and he introduced a new product that Kingston was about to release called the Wi-Drive, an apparent Mac add-on. Being the consummate PC Guy and (at that time) very vocal anti-Mac proponent, I moved on to Kingston`s HyperX SSD news and afforded the Wi-Drive the standard article entry, not believing that we would ever cross paths again. Boy, was I wrong!"

LaCie 4big Rack Office review
     Thu, Sep 06 2012 | 4:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
LaCie recently added a new model to its line of Windows storage servers. The 4big Rack Office is positioned next to the 5big Office and the 5big Office+, and is made to fit in a rack like the name suggests. Most rack models are not exactly the most attractively designed products, but LaCie put some effort into this design like it does with all its products. The chassis is made entirely out of aluminium, and while it's intended for a 19-inch rack, it wouldn't look out of place on a table either.

REVIEW: OCZ Agility 4 256GB @ PureOverclock
     Thu, Sep 06 2012 | 4:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?It?s not always the enthusiasts (and well-heeled) that want blistering speeds, and certainly not just in the SSD arena. Anyone with an SSD can benefit from massive performance gains over a hard drive, from the most diehard to the budget-oriented consumer. So the OCZ Agility 4 targets the latter, incorporating the Everest 2 controller but offering an SSD package that?s very accessible to users on a modest budget. The interesting thing about the Agility 4 is the Everest controller looks to offer nearly enthusiast-classed performance, particularly in incompressible data, at a much lower price point than we typically see. Currently retailing for only $189 in the 256GB capacity ($100 for 128GB), that?s only $0.73 per GB and a very attractive deal. But how does the performance of the OCZ Agility 4 measure up? Is it worth the investment? Let?s find out.?"
