ASRock X79 Extreme9 (Intel X79) Motherboard Review
     Tue, Dec 27 2011 | 9:12A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We`ve absolutely powered through a bunch of ASRock motherboards recently. First we checked out the ASRock X79 Extreme4 which came in at an awesome price point. From there we checked out the mATX version, the ASRock X79 Extreme4-M. Today, though, it`s all about the new high end board from the guys at ASRock, the X79 Extreme9. Everything about the X79 Extreme9 seems to be big and the big box is where we`ll be starting today. Once we`ve done that we`ll move inside the box to see what ASRock is offering us with the X79 Extreme9 before we move onto the motherboard. Once we`ve done that we`ll get into the BIOS to see how that looks before we check out the testbed, cover overclocking potential and finally see the performance the X79 Extreme9 has to offer us."

Vizio E3D420VX Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Tue, Dec 27 2011 | 9:12A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The Vizio E3D420VX is a 42-inch HDTV that has some really great features, including 3D support and streaming, for a low cost. It has good color and picture quality, but not the best out there. The 3D image quality, on the other hand, is quite good and Vizio even includes two pairs of 3D glasses.?"

Sapphire HD 6670 Low Profile Review
     Tue, Dec 27 2011 | 9:05A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Sapphire HD 6670 provided a decent entry level gaming experience, while also being able to handle all office and media usage effortlessly. As long as maximum quality settings aren`t desired, then this card will game just fine. Operating noise was surprisingly low and the temperatures were great! Overclocking was consistent with full-sized 6670s, with a gain of about 8% core and 15% memory. The packaging was perfect and included all the main peripherals needed."

ARM Cortex-A9 PandaBoard ES Benchmarks
     Tue, Dec 27 2011 | 8:15A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The performance of the dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 OMAP4460 configuration as found on the PandaBoard ES is quite commendable and in this Phoronix review the dual-core 1.2GHz ARM system with PowerVR SGX540 graphics is being compared to several Intel Atom, Pentium M, and Core Duo configurations running Ubuntu Linux throughout. To spice things up, the pre-production OLPC XO-1.75 was also thrown into the testing mix with its single-core ARMv7 800MHz Sheeva processor."

Corsair Vengeance LP PC3-12800 16GB Kit Review
     Tue, Dec 27 2011 | 6:28A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A great option for people with those massive coolers, the Vengeance LP kit is a great little series from Corsair and today we`ll be checking out the PC3-12800 kit. If you`ve seen the Vengeance LP kit before in its Dual Channel form, you`re not going to see anything too different here. We`ve got a fairly basic heatsink on offer and that`s really to do with the fact that the kit is of course a Low Profile one. If you wanted a heatsink that looked a little fancier or larger, you`ve got the option with the typical non LP Vengeance RAM that we`ve looked at previously. Moving in closer, we get a better idea of what`s going on with each side of the RAM. One side has our Vengeance LP logo while the other a sticker on it that gives us the model number along with the main specifications of the RAM we`re dealing with. The timing side of things is probably one of the more impressive areas on the kit as we can see from the model number that we`re dealing with a CL8 kit. The exact timings coming in at 8-8-8-24-1T @ 1.5v and these are very strong timings."

The Kingston DataTraveler HyperX 3.0 is supposed to be Kingston`s fastest flash drive to date. We`ll compare it with a USB 3.0 flash drive they released a few months ago to see if it`s true."

[Affiliates News] Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3P Z68 Mo therboard Review @ APH
     Tue, Dec 27 2011 | 4:45A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are still relatively young -- and by young, I mean in your late teens to early 20s -- then you should still be somewhat steamed out from finals week that just occurred recently (Some of us not even a day ago from when I wrote this). Personally, I can attest to disliking the December finals week quite a bit more than the April finals week, because it seems to take a lot out of the Christmas holiday anticipation. Instead of earnestly awaiting the arrival of Santa, we find ourselves cramped up in our study halls up until the 21st without even eying the awaited presents that sit snugly under our tree. Snowfall becomes a nuisance, as city transit becomes delayed much more often than it should. Before we know it, it`s Thursday, December 22, 2011, 2:21AM, and I am still awake writing the Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD3P motherboard review introduction. Wait a second, did I just explain my situation? Well, unfortunately, yes. I am quite sure many of us have found ourselves in this position as well. And now that I think about it, Christmas Day is no more than 54 hours away, and I have yet to begin my shopping. Oh, but of course, the Gigabyte motherboard review comes first! If I had a moment`s time to breathe, I would simply go through all the amazing technological developments of 2011. However, since I do not have the luxury of such a physiological need, I will sum up the entire year with a few words, letters, and numbers. Sandy Bridge, H67, P67, and lastly, Z68. So without further adieu, let us plow through the last motherboard review of the year here at APH Networks!"

Thermaltake Chaser MK-1 Full-Tower Chassis Review @ Techgage
     Mon, Dec 26 2011 | 11:12P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Thermaltake has a large number of chassis lines, but it`s time to welcome another: Chaser. The first model, MK-1, features a bold, gamer-esque design and borrows many cues from the Level 10 GT. It features an HDD dock, a headphone holder, and tons of cooling capacity. At $150, is this a full-tower that should top your list?"

Corsair Performance Pro Series 256 GB Review
     Mon, Dec 26 2011 | 11:05P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Across the board, the Performance Pro 256 GB drive offers excellent performance. It easily reaches its rated speeds of up to 515 MB/s sequential read and 440 MB/s sequential write in the ATTO testing. What is more impressive, are its results in CrystalDiskMark and AS SSD, where the Performance Pro delivered the highest performance of any non-RAID drive I have looked at so far. In the IO Meter testing, the Performance Pro was easily the highest performing drive once again. Corsair and Marvell have put together a drive that just flat-out delivers. Priced competitively at $419, the 256 GB Corsair Performance Pro drive easily makes the short list. It`s priced right, delivers awesome performance, is built with high-end performance in mind, and comes with a 3 year warranty."

Thermaltake Overseer RX-I Computer Case @ Benchmark Reviews
     Mon, Dec 26 2011 | 9:38P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In this article Benchmark Reviews tests the Thermaltake Overseer RX-I, which demands a higher premium but at the same time packs in more goodies and features. In my previous article I asked what you want from a case and how much are you willing to spend, well today we have a case for those willing to splash a bit more cash in return for some great features. The Overseer has front panel USB 3.0, e-Sata, and a 2.5/3.5 HDD/SSD dock all conveniently located whether your case is on the floor or on your desk. Inside the case you have room for tall CPU coolers (up to 177mm) and long video cards (up to 344mm), cable routing is catered for and HDD installation will look neat too. When you have all of your gear installed there will still be room to spare, Thermaltake have once again made provisions for a 120.2 (240mm) watercooling radiator and you won`t be short of space to mount a pump and reservoir either."

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.
