Components of an SSD and basic Relations @ Ocaholic
     Fri, Apr 20 2012 | 4:29P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This might sound like a very trivial question but it seems that many people don`t know for example that there is not a single company that manufactures SSD completely themselves. At least this is what the latest findings suggest. At this point we refer to the fact that it`s being discussed quite controversially that OCZ uses Marvell controllers for their latest Vertex 4 SSDs. What we`re going to do in the following article is, we will explain which components are needed to build an SSD and where the biggest differences are from a performance and endurance point of view."

MSI Z77A-GD65 ATX Motherboard Review With Sandy Bridge
     Fri, Apr 20 2012 | 4:12P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
a post to your own news section would totally be appreciated. If we`re sending our news to the wrong place, we apologize. Just send us a message with the correct address to the address below. Don`t forget that,Futurelooks starts the Z77 onslaught with this ... * * *MSI Z77A-GD65 ATX Motherboard Review With Sandy Bridge* * * What is Z77 and what does it do? It?s Intel?s latest motherboard chipset (codenamed Panther Point) that supports Intel?s 2nd Generation Sandy Bridge processors, but was actually designed for their new Ivy Bridge LGA1155 3rd Generation parts, which we?ll touch on a bit later. For now, our focus is on MSI?s entry to the Z77 arena, the Z77A-GD65 Military Class III motherboard which sports a new UEFI BIOS and updated desktop software. *"

Biostar TPower X79 @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Apr 20 2012 | 4:11P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I entered the world of computer gaming with a well-justified custom laptop my freshman year of college. The urge to build my own PC inevitably began to grow as I traveled to LAN parties and saw the creation of others. My first board was a hand-me-down Biostar with a lot of life yet to give. Five years later, it?s fitting that my first build with Sandy Bridge-E is from that company?s first socket 2011 board, the TPower X79. The TPower X79 is one of Biostars first attempts to branch out beyond the budget boards they are known for. I am excited to see what direction they will do and how it will perform."

[DreamWare Computers] Raidmax RX-600AF Power Supply
     Fri, Apr 20 2012 | 4:05P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The RX-600AF is a 600W, non-modular power supply that will only cost you about $59.99 CDN. A price point like this puts the RX-600AF on a teetering point between being a high end entry level unit or a lower end mainstream unit. The RX-600AF may lack some features associated with higher end supplies, but for the PC builder on a budget or who doesn`t want to pay for unnecessary features, this may end up being a great supply to consider."

NZXT Switch 810 Full Tower Case Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Fri, Apr 20 2012 | 12:13P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have seen so many full tower cases. This is to accommodate the larger XL-ATX motherboards that we have been seeing lately and just to have the extra room for large liquid cooling setups. One of the most impressive cases we saw this year at CES was the Switch 810 from NZXT. NZXT really took their time designing this case to give you so many different cooling options as well as adding features that are just not on other cases. The case comes equipped with four 140mm cooling fans, room for up to 7 hard drives, support for XL-ATX motherboards, USB 3.0 support and much more. So let?s just jump right in and take a look."

It`s finally here! We can finally talk a little bit about what is coming next for the mainstream desktop.

Western Digital VelociRaptor 1TB Hard Drive Review @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Apr 20 2012 | 8:56A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Users can expect a 25% increase (according to WD) in performance and we saw sequential read/write scores that exceeded the rated specifications of 200MB/s. This is supported by a large 64MB cache to help buffer data. Overall, for a spinning platter drive, performance was very good and it`s a bit amazing that they`ve been able to get so much capacity in a drive with the platters rotating at 10,000 RPM. With such speeds, you`d expect the drive to be noisy but even on our open test bed, the noise was..."

Sapphire Pure Black X79N @ PureOverclock

Posted by: STAFF
Recently, Sapphire has raised a few eyebrows with their Pure Platinum and Pure Black Series in both Intel and AMD Platforms. Today, we have our hands on Sapphire`s newest release, the Pure Black X79N. With some exciting added features, we didn`t waste any time to check out this bold new motherboard. But it comes with a very expensive price tag, so can it measure up?"

Gigabyte's latest Intel X79 motherboard
     Thu, Apr 19 2012 | 6:34P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

While setting up Gigabyte's latest Intel X79 motherboard on the PCSTATS test bench a few week ago, we found ourselves wondering; "what's the ideal amount of memory to use in a Intel Core i7 3820 'Sandy Bridge-E' platform these days?" Obviously, with a 32-bit Windows 7 OS we'd be limited to 4GB of system memory, but what's the magic number for Windows 7 64-bit?

Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H Intel Z77 Motherboard Review
     Thu, Apr 19 2012 | 5:49P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There's nothing finer than a new chipset to kick the summer off, this year it's the Intel Z77 Express. In this review PCSTATS will put the performance oriented Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H motherboard, which is built on Intel's shiny new Z77 Express chipset, through its paces with the exceptionally popular 32nm 2nd Gen. Intel Core i3/i5/i7 'Sandy Bridge' processor. The main difference between the Intel Z77 chipset and the previous Intel Z68 is the addition of native USB 3.0.

Intel staggered the release of its Z77 chipset and upcoming 22nm 3rd Gen. Intel Core i3/i5/i7 'Ivy Bridge' socket LGA1155 processors to let each technology stand on its own two feet, but in reality the two are so complimentary you can't have one without the other.

SSD News: Micron RealSSD C400 128GB mSATA SSD Review - Amazing Performance and Capacity At Under 10 Grams
     Thu, Apr 19 2012 | 5:12P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It wasn`t so long ago that we had a sit down with Crucial/Micron at Storage Visions 2012 and they spoke of their SSD plans for the year, the Adrenaline Caching SSD and production of a mSATA SSD being high priorities on the list. Shortly after that venture, we reviewed the Adrenaline and here we are back once again with announcement, and full review, of the new Micron C400 SATA 3 Client mSATA SSD. The C400 is not a retail item, however, fret not as we are sure that release of the M4 mSATA can`t be far behind."

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.
