     Tue, Feb 11 2014 | 8:31A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Small computer cases for mini-ITX motherboards have been extremely popular the last few years. Once these types of systems could only house components with little power but these days you can build pretty competent and powerful systems regardless of the size of the case. The Lian li Q27 is such a case offering support both regular ATX power supplies as well as video cards up to 195 mm and cpu coolers up to 70 mm height."

But the H440 hides several innovations under its painted steel skin, one of which will be controversial."

OCZ Vertex 460 SSD Review (240GB) Enterprise Performance With an Amazing Price
     Mon, Feb 10 2014 | 12:28P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Only hours after the OCZ Storage Solutions has been announced as the newest member of the Toshiba Group Company, , OCZ is releasing a brand new 460 Series SSD, relying on new partnerships and Toshiba NAND flash memory. If anything, the OCZ story is sure to make an interesting novel one day but, the release of this SSD shows us that the OCZ team has become very good at staying on the right track and deflecting what some might consider serious diversions. Their possession of what might be one of the worlds top SSD controllers, the Barefoot 3, might have a great deal to do with that."

SilverStone ML04 Milo HTPC mATX Case Review
     Mon, Feb 10 2014 | 11:36A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Benchmark Reviews was recently given the chance to sample the Milo ML04 HTPC micro-ATX case from SilverStone. Possibly an under-appreciated corner of the PC case market, a good home theater case can provide a subtle home for some powerful components. With computers making a gradual shift from the office to the living room and form factors steadily decreasing in size, HTPC cases can offer a home for an older, re-purposed office machine or a sophisticated enclosure for a dedicated media box. Part of the entry-level Milo series designed to offer the full size features of the Grandia series in a smaller size, will SilverStone?s SST-ML04B fulfill the special requirements of an HTPC platform? Why not just use any old computer case and set it in the living room? Let?s take a look and find out if the ML04 is a better option."

ASRock Z87 Extreme11/ac Motherboard SSD Storage Overview
     Mon, Feb 10 2014 | 10:17A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Its no secret that SSDs have been a major force in tech advance and the force in which theyve impacted could never be covered in a single report. Eyeing the enthusiast or home user alone, SSDs are now a main staple of any PC build. They enable quicker PC start times, increase system performance and reduce scene transition times when gaming. Add to that characteristics such as less heat, less noise, better data protection as well as better battery life for laptop and ultra users.Motherboard manufacturers have been relatively slow to adapt, and their reasoning that SSD progression just hasnt slowed enough yet to grab hold, is valid. In just a few years we have seen consumer SSDs progress from the 3.5 desktop standard, to notebook, mSATA, PCIe and now we are about to experience the smallest form factor yet with the newest M.2 standard. Quite frankly, motherboard manufacturers find that just as they have been able to successfully incorporate one standard, the next appears. The fact that we were formerly limited to two Intel ports for full 500+ MB/s SSD performance didnt help."

LG Nexus 5 Review @ ocaholic
     Mon, Feb 10 2014 | 8:31A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the past years LG have had the rare chance to gather experience building Google Nexus Smartphones. The Korean company are the makers of the Nexus 4, but sharp tongues would claim that it was just a cut-down version of the Optiumus G. It might be that they were right, since LG have now made the Nexus 5, a high-end smartphone that sports a surprisingly reasonable price tag."
