Gigabyte`s HD 7770 OC is the cheapest factory overclocked HD 7770 available. It strikes a good balance of price and performance. We put the card to the test and also pair it up with XFX HD 7770 to assess its CrossFire performance."

MSI Radeon HD 7970 Lightning review
     Fri, Mar 30 2012 | 5:48A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the MSI Radeon HD 7970 Lightning. What a product to look at, the R7970 lightning has a very rare design, comes with only the best components, has voltage monitoring headers, comes pre-overclocked (extensively at 1070 MHz) and allows to be voltage tweaked at many levels. To pursue Eyefinity they have made the card Eyefinity6 compatible, by use of four DisplayPort connectors and two single link DVI connectors you can get six monitors running. Though realistically nobody does that as you have that ugly bezel from left to right smack down in the middle of you field of view. There`s another feature though, to give the product a little more `niche` MSI implemented a small add-on board that is called a GPU-reactor which functions as a power supply module which, when installed on the back of the GPU.

Logitech K800 Wireless Illuminated Keyboard Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Fri, Mar 30 2012 | 3:34A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When you find a keyboard you like you never want to change, my keyboard is the one component of my main system that has not changed since 2007! Logitech released the diNovo Edge keyboard back in 2007 and even since it has been my main keyboard. Surprisingly enough logitech still makes it and it sells for just about the same price. I think after 5 years it is time to move on to a new keyboard and I think the K800 wireless keyboard may just be the right keyboard. It has some of the same features of the diNovo Edge as well as some new ones. Read on and see if the K800 can make me let go of my 5 year old diNovo Edge."

Intel X79 Motherboard Overclocking Guide @ Benchmark Reviews
     Fri, Mar 30 2012 | 12:20A | Overclocking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This Intel X79 Motherboard Overclocking Guide is meant to assist and outline aspects of overclocking parameters as well as the experience of overclocking on the ASUS X79 series of motherboards. I have detailed our recommendations to maximize the overclocking potential / scaling on ASUS` X79 series of motherboards. This guide has been developed after extensive internal testing across multiple boards, multiple UEFI builds and a high sampling rate of C0 CPUs and limited sampling of C1 stepping CPUs. While this guide is not definitive and will not contain every possible overclocking combination or guarantee results, the information detailed has been consistently duplicated and yielded repeatable results in our testing. Of course the quality of the CPU and cooling is very important but overall we think the results on our boards should exceed those of others at like settings."

[Tech ARP] Intel Ivy Bridge June 2012 Details Leaked!
     Fri, Mar 30 2012 | 12:12A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, we will be taking a look at the next slew of processors, which Intel will release on June 3rd, 2012. This was supposed to mark the launch of the Intel Core i3 Ivy Bridge processors. However, it now appears Intel has delayed the Core i3 processor launch until Q4 2012. In fact, they also shifted 8 of the processors originally slated for the April launch to June. Apparently, they still have considerable stock of Sandy Bridge processors and would naturally prefer to trim that down before launching more Ivy Bridge processors. Let`s take a look at the details..."

G.Skill Ripjaws X F3 2133C9Q-32GXH Review
     Thu, Mar 29 2012 | 11:22P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The X Series heat shields do an excellent job of dissipating the thermal load of these modules. Not that there is a significant thermal load when running at 1.6v, but they are there for the times you want to get a bit adventurous with the voltages and overclocking. Overclocking margins are not what I was looking for, but nevertheless, I was able to pull an extra 100+ MHz or 5.5% out of the modules that generated a nice boost in performance across the test suite. The modules look great and will fit into just about any build."

HIS Radeon HD 7750 1GB Video Card Review
     Thu, Mar 29 2012 | 4:25P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we`re looking at the HIS HD 7750 which comes in at $109.99 putting it in that lower mid-range sector. As time has gone on, though, we`ve seen these cheaper cards offer us quite strong performance. We felt a little disappointed with how AMD launched the new series, though, and the HD 7770 on a whole due to the price point. We wonder if the cheaper HD 7750 can stand as it hits this lower price point. Before we find out what kind of performance we`re able to get out of the new model, the first thing we need to do is take a look at the package. From there we`ll move into checking out the card and then we`ll take a closer look at the specifications and see how the model compares to its big brother, the HD 7770."

GIGABYTE X79-UD5 Motherboard Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Thu, Mar 29 2012 | 4:10P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Unlike some of the ultra-pricey X79 motherboards that we have reviewed so far, the GIGABYTE X79-UD5 carries a fairly reasonable price tag, yet still has an exhaustive specs list. Does it come short in any area? We find out in this review. "

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.
