     Fri, Mar 30 2012 | 9:15A | Power Supply | PermaLink

Kingwin`s most recent Platinum PSU comes at only $99. Making it the most affordable choice out there if you want to power a typical system the green way, with little power wasted in the PSU. Thanks to a great component design we see record low power consumption, even at just 40W, which is important for systems that are lightly loaded all day."

HP TouchSmart Elite 7320 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Fri, Mar 30 2012 | 9:00A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HP TouchSmart Elite 7320 is an inexpensive all-in-one touchscreen PC that offers good performance thanks to the Intel Core i5 CPU and 4GB of RAM. It is a fairly standard 22-inch all-in-one PC, so there`s little that it offers to help it stand out from the rest of them on the market."

HIS Radeon HD 7870 IceQ Turbo Overclocked Video Card Review
     Fri, Mar 30 2012 | 8:46A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The latest card to get the IceQ treatment from the team over at HIS comes in the form of the HD 7870 IceQ Turbo. When it comes to HIS cards, this is a model that carries our two favorite words. IceQ that lets us know we`re dealing with a new cooler and Turbo which lets us know we`re dealing with a pre-overclocked card. While we`ll get into more details on the overclock soon, because the Turbo clock on offer from the HIS card was similar to that of the PowerColor PCS+ HD 7870 we`ve just looked at, we figured we`d fire up some overclocking software and see how the new HD 7870 goes in the overclocking department; an area we haven`t looked in yet."

HIS Radeon HD 7770 iCooler GHz Edition 1GB Video Card Review
     Fri, Mar 30 2012 | 8:31A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Firing up 3DMark 11 we ended up with a score of P3580 which is exactly what we`d expect from the HD 7770. It`s not a bad score, but our issue has always been compared to the HD 6870 which sits at a similar price point at the moment, the HD 7770 comes off looking quite overpriced. What was really nice though was the cooler which let the GPU sit at 35c when idle and still quite a cool 51c at load. More surprising, though, was the cooler which came in at 54.4dB at idle and 55.1dB at load. These are good numbers which see this as the second coolest running card and quietest active cooled card we`ve tested recently."

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."

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.
