Gigabyte Z87X-D3G LGA1150 Motherboard Review @ OCIA.net
     Sun, Sep 29 2013 | 6:21P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?With Intel`s 7-series chipset a little over a year old, the latest 8-series offers only a few minor improvements. There`s some power savings to be had, along with more built-in ports for USB 3.0 and 6Gb/s SATA. Other than that, there`s not much to distinguish from the previous 1155 socket generation. The motherboard we have for review today comes to us from Gigabyte in the form of their Z87X-D3H. They offer no less than fifteen different Z87 based chipset motherboards, everything from mini-ITX boards with onboard Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, to their top-of-the-line G1 Sniper gaming motherboards, and the D3H falls somewhere in the middle.?"

Frame Rating: Eyefinity vs Surround in Single and Multi-GPU Configurations
     Sun, Sep 29 2013 | 9:45A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As I mentioned on a previous page, AMD, as they have previously stated, is committed to fixing these CrossFire + Eyefinity problems for the upcoming generation of products and the current Radeon HD 7000-series of cards. Though much of the discussion is still going to be embargoed until further notice I have renewed confidence that the substantial Frame Rating issues with these configurations will be addressed, I just dont know exactly when. For gamers that have already invested in this ecosystem of multi-display, multi-GPU hardware that answer isnt going to appease them but it does make this information presented today easier to accept."

ASUS GeForce GTX 760 DirectCU Mini OC Review @ Ocaholic
     Sat, Sep 28 2013 | 10:26A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the DirectCU Mini, ASUS has the smallest GeForce GTX 760 on the market to target MiniITX enthusiasts. The concept first introduced with the GeForce GTX 670 Mini seems to have had its success since the manufacturer made a second card of the kind. However, we hope ASUS improved the two major downsides the Mini first of its name had, known as price and noise levels. Let`s see!"

Cougar PowerX 550-Watt 80 PLUS Bronze Power Supply Review

Posted by: STAFF
The Carbide 330R Quiet case can easily accommodate extended VGA adapters and offers four internal HDD/SSD mounting trays and three external 5.25? bays but does not have any built in 3.5?/2.5? HDD hot-swap options. Overall the build quality is good, the case is easy to work with, and it is has the potential to offer very good cooling with minimal noise. "

Toshiba mSATA Client SSD Review (256GB)
     Sat, Sep 28 2013 | 9:04A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It is no secret that the popularity of mSATA SSDs is being pushed around just a bit by M.2 PCIe design. M.2 SSDs may even tempt us with a great deal more power for the punch and capacity down the road. What M.2 doesnt have, as of yet, is just about every popular ultra book in the world in their pocket and that is where mSATA SSDs feel secure. It is kind of like the SATA 2 to SATA 3 move made in SSDs where, as much as SATA 3 is faster and makes sense, 99.8% of the population uses SATA 2. You can imagine that we were more than a bit surprised when our expected receipt of a 512GB Toshiba Client notebook SSD not only included a 256GB mSATA form factor as well, but also, we think this is the first official shot of their new Client M.2 PCIe SSD in the wild; it being 512GB as well. Although we are not to sure about placement of the notebook SSD variation article, we can guarantee that the M.2 SSD will be fully reviewed soon enough on our sister site, The SSD Review We are off on a flight half way around the world early tomorrow am and returning Friday so expect the M.2 posting on TSSDR early next week."

Lian Li PC-Q28 Aluminum Mini-ITX Tower PC Case Review
     Sat, Sep 28 2013 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since this is my first venture into building a system inside an M-ITX PC case I didn?t know exactly what to expect when I started out. I had certain expectations of the Lian Li PC-Q28; I knew it would take a full size ATX PSU (up to 17cm) and double slot video cards (up to 29cm long). The Lian Li PC-Q28 PC case, while small, has a large internal volume and will make for an excellent enthusiast M-ITX case with a few tweaks and mods. In this article Benchmark Reviews will hopefully provide answers to all of the questions you may have regarding the capabilities of the Lian-Li PC-Q28 Aluminum Mini-ITX Tower PC Case (model PC-Q28B), and more that you may have not considered."

Corsair Vengeance Pro DDR3 2666MHz 16GB Review
     Fri, Sep 27 2013 | 10:12A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overclocking the Vengeance Pro modules provided some added lift in the performance numbers while maintaining the stock timings of 11-13-13 with only an adjustment needed on the TRAS to 35 along with the prerequisite bump in voltage to 1.75v. Keeping the voltage static at 1.65v would not allow a boot even with looser timings, even up to 13-15-15-35 at 2800MHz, the next divider up from 2666MHz. The maximum clock speed I could pull out of these modules was just over 2900MHz using 1.75v and timings of 12-13-13-35. Any higher than that the performance drop off was not worth the effort for day to day use but would look great in screen shots."

LanOC V13 Recap @ LanOC Reviews

Posted by: STAFF
Its been a few days now and not only have I set all of the PCs around the house back up, I also took the time to do detail cleaning around my desk. Even after a few days I feel little tired, an impromptu nap that went until 3pm yesterday helped some but its going to be a little while before Im back to normal. All of it means we had another successful LAN. Of course the work doesnt stop on Sunday for me, but before I get too far into it I wanted to post up a little bit of a roundup. Read on to hear more about it."
