Posted by: STAFF
Regardless of whether you`re an Apple fan or not, by now you`ve likely heard the information about Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion that began making its rounds on the Internet since last week. But how`s the performance of Mac OS X 10.8 and how will it compare to the competition on the Linux side, namely Ubuntu 12.04 LTS?

     Thu, Feb 23 2012 | 4:47P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Other World Computing or OWC as most people call them is a company you may or may not have heard of. They have been around since 1988 and are one of the premier brands of upgrade and enhancement products for Apple devices. They started out with memory and like most memory companies they have started producing solid state drives. Today we are going to be checking out their Mercury Extreme Pro 6G Solid State drive. By the name you can guess this is a solid state drive and it boasts speeds of 559MB/s read and 527MB/s write. Let?s see how it stands up to the other big names in the SSD market."

Azza Fusion 3000 Full Tower Chassis Review @ OCIA.net
     Thu, Feb 23 2012 | 1:21P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The PC case market is one that is hard to stand out in but of course that doesn`t stop manufacturers from trying. We have only reviewed one other Azza case before, the Solano 1000 way back in 2009, but we generally came away impressed with it. In reading up on their history, I discovered that at one time Azza offered mainboards in addition to their PSU line. They aren?t in the mainboard market anymore but have a variety of chassis and PSU offerings such as the Fusion 3000 that we will be taking a look at here today.?"

BIOSTAR TPower X79 Motherboard Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Feb 23 2012 | 11:17A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As I just mentioned the BIOSTAR TPower X79 is the lowest cost motherboard that we have looked at for the Intel X79 chipset. We were comparing the BIOSTAR TPower X79 to boards like the ASUS Rampage IV Extreme, GIGABYTE GA-X79-UD7 and the ASRock X79 Extreme9 that we looked at last week. Each of these boards is at least 150% the cost of the BIOSTAR TPower X79 motherboard. Sure, the performance of the BIOSTAR TPower X79 was a little lower compared to these more expensive boards, but not enough that you would a difference in the day to day operation of your system..."

Core i7-2600K and Core i5-2500K Radeon HD 7970 Gaming-Performance-Difference @ ocaholic
     Thu, Feb 23 2012 | 11:17A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In this article we`re going to check gaming performance of Intels LGA 1155 Sandy Brdige CPUs when they`re being supported by a Radeon HD 7970 graphics card from XFX. We`re curious if there will be a measurable performance gap between these two CPUs regarding modern games or if the 100 MHz and the absence of hyperthreading on the Core i5-2500K don`t even have an influence on gaming performance."

Dell Vostro V131 Notebook Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Thu, Feb 23 2012 | 11:17A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
* *Dell has been angling most of their product stack towards value oriented market segments and the newest addition to the Vostro lineup ?the V131- seems to follow this same path but with some interesting twists along the way. As with many of Dell?s notebooks, it is available in a number of flavors ranging in price from just $399 to $900. Unfortunately, Dell`s website has it is tucked away from the prying eyes of most end users. * *"

Enermax Platimax 1000-watt Power Supply Review
     Thu, Feb 23 2012 | 11:17A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This time around it is for their Platimax series of power supplies which offer superb performance at Platinum rated efficiency. We took an early look at the Platimax series late last year when the only PSU we could get our hands on at the time was the 600W model. We wanted to follow up and see if their high wattage offerings were of the same quality as we were sure our readers would be interested in Platinum efficiency in an enthusiasts quality power supply."

RunCore Pro V Max 120GB SATA III SSD Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Feb 23 2012 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
RunCore is not one of the companies that immediately comes to mind when thinking of SSD manufacturers but they have been churning out drives since 2007. We`ve even featured the SATA II version of the Pro V awhile back. The SF-1200 controlled, SATA II drive proved to be a good performer although at the time the pricing was a little above the competition. Back to present day, the Pro V line has been upgraded to the newest SandForce SF-2281 controller and along with that, the interface has been upped to 6Gbps SATA III. They sent us over the Pro V Max 120GB version for evaluation so we`ll get started by telling a little bit about it..."

Cooler Master Cosmos II Ultra Tower Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Thu, Feb 23 2012 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Cooler Master released the Cosmos case a few years ago it was truly something new and revolutionary. They followed it up with the Cosmos S, which gave it a more streamlined look and took away the front door. Our own staff member Colin Dean still uses that case to this day. Back in 2011 at CES we saw a prototype of the new Cosmos that Cooler Master was going to release later in the year. We were excited, but we had no clue when it was going to be released. Right before CES this year Cooler Master announced the Cosmos II. A massive case with support for up to 13 hard drives, 5 included fans with support for up to 10 fans, 2 hot swap hard drive bays, and it can fit motherboards up to XL-ATX. Read on as we check this beast out!"

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.
