The Lenovo IdeaCentre A720 is a stunning all-in-one desktop PC that sports a beautiful, Apple-like design and a multitouch 27-inch 1080p display. The design of the PC is definitely its strongest selling point, but the touchscreen and multimedia features add to it. It does lack in terms of performance and touch-based applications."

Antec EarthWatts EA-650 Platinum 650W Power Supply Review @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Aug 15 2012 | 9:54A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to performance, besides its high electrical efficiency which is expect from an 80Plus Platinum unit. The Earthwatts Platinum 650W PSU also excels in acoustics, with the unit running entirely silent across the entire nominal load range. The high efficiency also allows it to operate at fairly low temperatures as little energy is wasted as heat. Even though most hardcore enthusiasts would find this unit`s electrical performance mediocre, we believe that the ripple suppression and voltage regulation of the Earthwatts Platinum 650W unit is more than acceptable for a sub-$100 product..."

Corsair's Obsidian 550D
     Wed, Aug 15 2012 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair's Obsidian 550D has pretty much all the traits of its successful predecessors, but is also carefully engineered for noise reduction and sound isolation thanks to the use sound dampening pads on the sides and front panel of the chassis to actively absorb the noise being produced by the internal fans. Hit our review to see how much of difference they will make, and if there are any resulting side effects elsewhere.

Intel Core i7-3820 Processor Review (10M Cache 3.60 GHz) @ TechwareLabs
     Wed, Aug 15 2012 | 8:45A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 2XXX Second Generation of the Intel Core Processor Family took off this past year with many early adopters pleasantly surprised by the abundance of speed, updated technologies, and better graphics integration. Here at TechwareLabs we had the pleasure of reviewing the i5-2500K and i7-2600K last year with future prospect of greater economical choices to come in Q1 2012. The Sandy Bridge-E i7-3800 Desktop series takes on many of the 2nd Gen i7-2XXX series features with a boost in base clock speed, cache, and thermal specification."

Test: What about your Intel Core 2 Quad? - Gaming Performance HD 7970 @ ocaholic
     Wed, Aug 15 2012 | 3:50A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Here we go, a lot of people asked me to test an Intel Core 2 Quad under recent 3D games with an HD 7970 so here is what I did. Like for the Core2Duo test we published last week, I chose the most popular processor which in this case is the Intel C2Q Q6600. However this time we did not simply test it at stock frequency, we overclocked it to 3.0 GHz. Why 3.0 GHz only one would ask, well that way I was able to use exactly the same BIOS settings I did use for the C2D E8400. Just kidding, the main reason is that to run this processor fully stable at 3.0 GHz you don`t need any voltage increase and you can use a default bus speed which is 333 MHz FSB in this case. Enough talking, let`s see how the Core2Quad Q6600 clocked at 3 GHz will perform against today`s processors like the i7 3770K and FX-8150 under heavy 3D workloads conditions such as Benchmarks and recent Games with highest graphics settings possible at a resolution of 1920x1080. Let`s get it started!"

Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H Warhorse to Workhorse! @ Techreaction.net
     Tue, Aug 14 2012 | 8:25P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Gigabyte UD5 moves well past the level of standard low end boards and is solidly embedded in the mid ranges area. Though it is the same price as the recently reviewed G1.Sniper M3 its functionality is very different and that is where we are going to go with this review; functionality. We are going to look at getting the job done as that is more important to most users than overclocking, getting gold medals at HWBot or setting records. We want this board to sweat! We will be moving beyond the CPU, GPU and memory tests alone. We will not consider the transfer rate of one drive or the performance of one raid. We will focus on no single item here. We will try to focus on all things at one time to find out if Gigabyte can deliver up some motherboard multitasking? But how does the motherboard have anything to do with multitasking? We will get there; but first the basics."

Posted by: STAFF
This is the second Giada Mini PC I have had an opportunity to lay my hands on and I must say I am impressed. This unit, sporting the Intel ATOM D2500 dual core, has a solid feel and just enough ports to be useful without affecting its overall comeliness."
