Thermaltake's Frio Extreme Heatsink Tested on Frostytech.com
     Sun, May 20 2012 | 2:00A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.frostytech.com

It's hard to believe that heatsinks for Intel and AMD microprocessors could get any bigger, but that's exactly what's happening. 2012 marks the year of "the really big heatsink" and Thermaltake's Frio Extreme is the latest example of this trend. The heatsink is built around 6mm diameter heatpipes and is rated for heat loads of up to 250W. Retail price for the Thermaltake Frio Extreme heatsink is pegged at $95USD/CDN. It installs onto Intel socket LGA2011/1366/1155/1156/775 and AMD socket AM3/AM2/FM1 processors.

Bitfenix Raider Mid-Tower ATX Chassis Review @ OCIA.net
     Sat, May 19 2012 | 4:09P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?Bitfenix is a bit of the new guy on the block, yet this is the second case we have had the opportunity to review from them in the past year. Last July we took a look at their Shinobi case and at the time I said it was a nice departure from their original Colossus chassis ? which was a bit odd for my taste. They have quickly become known for not just their interesting designs, but the quality of their construction. Taking a look at the Raider which we have here today, my first impression is that it is a refinement of the previous Shinobi design.?"

We pit two cards from AMD and Nvidia against each other that are under $200 today. Using Scott Wasson's method of GPU benchmarking really opened our eyes to just how differently these cards can perform, even when the frames per second are similar! Check it out!

Corsair 550D Case
     Sat, May 19 2012 | 12:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"In all honesty the 550D performed just as well under load as any other midrange mid-tower chassis that has come through my hands. It truly is one of the quietest cases I’ve ever had. I’d use it for a home theater case if my setup allowed me to have an upright tower…it was so quiet I had to literally check to see if it was on, it just didn’t make enough noise. With all the sound-proofing and closed up holes, you would think it would be really hot, but somehow Corsair really won this one out. It’s relatively cool and sure as heck quiet; great performance overall."

MSI Radeon HD 7870 TwinFrozr III OC review
     Sat, May 19 2012 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI releases their Radeon HD 7870 TwinFrozer III OC series, a factory overclocked (50 MHz higher at 1050 MHz) Radeon HD 7870 solution with room for even higher tweaks. As its name implies the graphics card utilizes MSI’s proprietary TwinFrozr III cooling system that packs 8mm thick nickel-plated copper heatpipes to convey heat drawn directly from the GPU to a large aluminum fin array, ventilated by two 80 mm fans.

Samsung BD-D6500 3D Blu-Ray Player Review
     Sat, May 19 2012 | 12:00P | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The trend is continuing. Blu-ray player competition is getting fierce and we all will be reaping the rewards of cheaper players that will continue to do more with every generation. Samsung's BD-D6500 is a good example of a player that only last year has the features of a model that would have easily been US$100 more."

Mortal Kombat (PS Vita) Review
     Sat, May 19 2012 | 12:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Since the launch of the Vita things have been a little quiet on the release front but now we get one of the first big post release period games in the form of Mortal Kombat. Like MvsC this is an attempt to take an existing game for the home consoles and port it to Vita, with some added functionality so let's find out if it falls into the same camp as the excellent MvsC3 or is closer to the less than impressive Reality Fighters."

Intel Glamor Acceleration Compared To SNA, UXA
     Sat, May 19 2012 | 12:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Going back to last year there's been the "Glamor Acceleration" project out of Intel to accelerate the 2D operations within X using OpenGL on Mesa. This is similar to the Xorg state tracker approach and while it's not yet enabled by default, Intel OTC developers have been making much progress in recent months. In this article is a look at the recent Glamor update while comparing it to the stock Intel UXA acceleration as well as to the other experimental acceleration option: Intel SNA."

Crucial Adrenaline made me forget
     Sat, May 19 2012 | 12:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We would like to inform you about the latest review published on Myce.com. This time we reviewed the Crucial Adrenaline. This SSD uses Micron’s 25nm NAND technology, a Marvell controller and uses the SATA-3 protocol. Our editor was very happy with its performance. Here is a snippet of the conclusion: 'After a week of daily use, the Crucial Adrenaline made me forget that there was a mechanical drive installed. Starting with the impressive performance that you get, the simple installation of the software and the hardware, and after a week I have found something else that this solution was able to provide, a silent operation.'

Inno3D iChiLL GTX 670 HerculeZ 3000 Graphics Card Review
     Sat, May 19 2012 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"It seems each manufacturer is going to take its own unique approach to building a card around the GTX 670 GPU with some going for compact models and others heading for larger PCBs with significant cooling solutions and overclocks. Inno3D fall into the second category and it is their custom GTX 670 which we have on our test bench today."

Hard Drive Overdrive: Corsair's Accelerator SSD Cache Reviewed
     Sat, May 19 2012 | 12:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Solid State Drives s are a fabulous way to boost a system's performance, but for all their strong points, they aren't an easy upgrade for a lot of people. Performance can vary significantly between manufacturers, only the most expensive drives can replace the need for an HDD in an enthusiast / data-heavy system, and reinstalling a full suite of software from scratch is a major headache. Corsair's Accelerator Series family of SSDs is designed to reduce the barriers to the SSD option by offering a solution that's accessible without the need to wipe your existing HDD or create a storage plan that ensures you make the best possible use of a small SSD, while leaving the bulk of your data on a rotating platter ...

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.
