XFX Double Dissipation R7750 Review
     Fri, Jun 29 2012 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overclocking an AMD GPU is about as simple as it can get. I simply used Catalyst Control Center to raise the GPU and memory clock speeds using the sliders. As with any overclocking using CCC, the PowerTune slider was slammed all the way to the maximum of +20%. With such high stock clocks, it wasn`t easy to push the card much further - maxing out the sliders was definitely not as good an option as you might do with lower factory-clocked cards. It was pretty easy to push the card up to 1000/1250 and run fully stable."

Mixing Drives and Interfaces on an Intel Raid Controller @ Techreaction.net
     Fri, Jun 29 2012 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So mixing and matching is doable on modern non proprietary controllers and though this is an Intel controller I have done much the same on AMD controllers. The manuals even say you can do it but yes it is recommended to use the same size and interface but that is recommended it does not mean it is a rule. Yes it is best to match sizes and speeds but it is not an absolute."

EVGA Z77 FTW Motherboard Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Fri, Jun 29 2012 | 2:08P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The EVGA Z77 FTW motherboard is compatible with the latest 28nm Ivy Bridge processors and is designed with overclockers in mind. The EVGA Z77 FTW has been packed with features in a slightly slimmer than EATX form factor at 10.3 wide. Onboard buttons, dual CMOS reset buttons, triple BIOS support, DEBUG LED, and extra CPU as well as PCI-E power connectors are just some of the conveniences available for performance tuners. Five PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots are available for some Quad-SLI action, utilizing a PLX PEX8747 bridge to circumvent the PCI-E graphics 16-lane limit of Ivy Bridge processors. A pair of extra SATA3 6Gbps ports via a Marvell 9182 controller as well as a pair of USB 3.0 ports via an ASMedia ASM1042 controller is available onboard for additional high-speed storage options. /////"

AMD Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition Video Card Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Fri, Jun 29 2012 | 12:04P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it was released last December, the Radeon HD 7970 was the fastest single-GPU video card available on the market. However, the GeForce GTX 680, released in April, proved to be faster. To counter the faster GPU from NVIDIA, AMD first dropped the price of the Radeon HD 7970, and now is releasing a second version of the Radeon HD 7970, dubbed GHz Edition, with higher clock rates. Was the increase of the clock rates enough to take the crown away from the GeForce GTX 680? Let`s check it out."

Sapphire Radeon 7870 FleX @ PureOverclock
     Fri, Jun 29 2012 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“What's so special about a FleX graphics card? Well, FleX is unique to Sapphire and it supports Eyefinity out of the box with no need for expensive DisplayPort screens or adapters. The tech is built directly into the card itself, independent of the monitors being used. The Sapphire 7870 FleX continues what we’ve seen on other models, and while it’s great tech, can this card bring enough horsepower to support great Eyefinity gaming at extreme resolutions?”

Sapphire HD 7870 FleX Dual-X 2GB
     Fri, Jun 29 2012 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The memory clock was bumped up 25MHz at a time until things became unstable, then backed off 5MHz at a time till it would pass 30 minutes of Unigine Heaven 3.0. The core clocks were raised similarly. After a few rounds of testing the rock-solid clock rates were 1240MHz core (a 24% increase) and 1290MHz memory (a 7.5% increase). The core clock is one of the highest seen here at OCC and the memory is roughly what is expected considering the modules themselves were only rated for 1250MHz."

* In a market with over a billion (give or take a couple) different chassis for under $100, finding the right one is easier said than done. Fortunately, there are some vendors where you pretty-well know by default that their product won`t let you down. Corsair is one of those, and we`re here to see if its Carbide 300R lives up to those high expectations."

AMD Radeon HD 7970 3GB GHz Edition Review - Taking on the GTX 680
     Fri, Jun 29 2012 | 9:21A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD enjoyed that crowned location on the GPU front all the way until the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 launched in March. In a display of technology that most reviewers never thought possible, NVIDIA had a product that was faster, more power efficient and matched or exceeded just about every feature of the AMD Radeon HD 7000 cards. Availability problems plagued NVIDIA for several months (and we just now seeing the end of the shortage) and even caused us to do nearly-weekly stock checks to update readers. Prices on the HD 7900 cards have slowly crept down to find a place where they are relevant in the market, but AMD appears to not really want to take a back seat to NVIDIA again."

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.
