Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 3GB OC Edition Video Card Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, Mar 04 2012 | 8:33A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to overclocking the SAPPHIRE HD 7950 OC Edition was a joy to overclock. The AMD `Tahiti` core is built on the 28nm manufacturing process and we have found the new Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture very overclocking friendly. Utilizing the SAPPHIRE TriXX overclocking utility we were able to hit 1185MHz on the core and 1600MHz on the memory. This is a 48% clock frequency increase on the core clock and the GDDR5 memory was blazing along at 6400MHz (effective)..."

REVIEW: Kingston SSDNow V+ 200 RAID 0 @ PureOverclock
     Sat, Mar 03 2012 | 1:20P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we recently looked at a cost effective drive offering from Kingston, the SSDNow V+200 120GB SATA III drive, we came away impressed. Kingston`s choice of asynchronous (Async) NAND flash memory provided an excellent balance of performance and price. Today we`re looking at a pair of these Kingston drives in RAID 0. Think one is fast? Wait until you see two. Strap in for some serious speed."

'ineo Protection Box - I-NC05'
     Sat, Mar 03 2012 | 12:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sometimes the simplest products are actually great products. If you remember the good old days when people played tapes instead of CD's, you would remember the Cassette boxes they came in. The idea was simple, use the box if you didn't want to damage your cassette. These boxes weren't the “be all, end all” for protection, but they did an adequate job of protecting your tapes from accidental splashes and dust. In addition to that, they made organizing your collection easy because they were uniformly shaped even though our cassettes were oddly shaped. Hard drives are no different. They should get the same kind of love and attention that our beloved cassette tapes did in the 80's, but instead they are stacked on our shelves naked and lonely waiting for dust and coffee to find them. Fear not solution seekers, there is an answer! ineo (yes, that is a lowercase "i") has produced a simple hard drive protection box, but does it cut the mustard... or the cheese?

Antec VP550P 550W PSU Review
     Sat, Mar 03 2012 | 12:01P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Antec have recently released a new range of lower end basic modal power supplies so they are not just targeting high end gamers anymore, but the “average Joe”. The VP550P is a brilliant little model that you might want to think about getting your hands on if you possibly have a small HTCP system running. With a top processor and a highly respectable graphics card the VP550P runs at very high efficiency levels on idle and load. The power supply runs at the same efficiency as a certified 80PLUS product. Brilliant for any “average Joe”. Take a look...

HDD Pricewatch: Three Months Into the Thai Floods
     Sat, Mar 03 2012 | 12:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The hard disk drive supply chain was hit hard late last year when a series of floods struck Thailand. The Asian country accounts for about a quarter of the world's hard drive production. All this resulted in hard drive prices shooting through the roof around the end of October as production became more expensive and limited. With the help of price tracking site Camelegg we've checked on a number of mobile and desktop HDDs to get a better overview of how the situation has developed in the last three months.

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.
