Sapphire Pure Platinum A75 Motherboard Review @Hi Tech Legion
     Wed, Dec 14 2011 | 2:18A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sapphire has just released their venture into Llano with the Sapphire Pure Platinum A75 Motherboard. The Platinum A75 offers all of the premium niceties that can be found with AMD`s Lynx platform. First, there is the top tier A75 Hudson-D3 FCH chipset. This has an FM1 socket for the latest Llano APU chips. There is support for up to 16GB of 800/1033/1333/1600/1866 MHz speed DDR3 memory. This chipset offers exceptional connectivity as you get five SATA3 ports, one 16x PCI-E, two 1x PCI-E, one 4x PCI-E, two 32-bit PCI, and four USB 3.0 ports. Because the APU is a CPU/GPU combination, for video connectivity, there is an HDMI, DVI, and DisplayPort available."

CrystalView E-Pad Touch 7 720MHz Android Tablet @ Review the Tech
     Tue, Dec 13 2011 | 9:38P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Android tablets have become kind of joke really there are many cheap ones out there and they?re giving the decent ones a bad name. I feel if you?re going to devote time and resources to something, then your should build a quality product, get the correct licensing etc and make it something that people will actually want to own. The inexpensive on the market today are more just toys, they?re running old versions of Android and have limited functionality. Are the cheap ones even worth it? They can be worthwhile I think, something for kids to play with and enjoy. They?re basically just something to browse the internet and play games with. Today for review I?ve got the Crystalview E-Pad Touch 7? Android tablet. This tablet has a 720Mhz CPU in it and is running Android 2.1. Honestly it?s pretty bad, even for the low price that it?s selling for. Review Picture(200x150): http://reviewthetech.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/epad1_thumb.jpg"

TechwareLabs Review: Cubitek Tattoo Pro Case
     Tue, Dec 13 2011 | 4:54P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Though most of the internals of a PC are heavily standardized, the case that houses them is one area where manufacturers have room to innovate. This, combined with the fairly undemanding requirements of the ATX specification, makes computer cases one of the most populous fields in DIY PC hardware. Cubitek, which got its start in OEM parts, has branched out into the consumer space with several cases. Today we`ll be looking at the Tattoo Pro, which is aimed at the budget enthusiast sector."

In this article is a comprehensive look at the Intel Core i7 3960X performance under Ubuntu Linux."

PC Power & Cooling Silencer Mk III 600W Power Supply Review
     Tue, Dec 13 2011 | 4:20P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Most of our readers are very familiar with PC Power & Cooling, so we will skip right to the chase with their latest product. PC Power & Cooling has yet again revamped the Silencer series of power supplies that has become almost infamous for their performance, reliability and low cost. One of the first things that you will notice is that this unit only has a single 46A 12V rail. It is becoming rare to find a power supply that isn`t capable for outputting 99% or more of its power on the 12V rail, but here we have one. What it lacks in 12V output, it makes up for on the minor rails. Both the 3.3V and 12V rails are capable of 24A each with a combined maximum output of 130W. This is more juice on the minor rails than even the recently reviewed XFX ProSeries 1000W PSU. Total combined continuous output is 600W."

Raidmax Seiran Mid-Tower Computer Case @ Benchmark Reviews
     Tue, Dec 13 2011 | 4:20P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In October, I wrote a review of the Raidmax Blade mid tower ultra budget case. Although it was a functional case and quite inexpensive, there were things left to desire, which is just the nature of ultra budget cases. Today at Benchmark Reviews, we have another offering in the Raidmax mid tower line-up, the Seiran. The Seiran is Raidmax`s newest mid tower entry, and pricewise, clearly not a budget case. I`m interested in seeing what Raidmax`s higher end mid tower case has to offer that budget mid tower`s don`t, and how it stacks up against other mid towers in its price range. So with that short intro, let`s get started!"

REVIEW: Patriot Pyro SE 240GB @ PureOverclock
     Tue, Dec 13 2011 | 4:20P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we`re looking at a mid-range drive from Patriot, the Pyro SE 240GB SATA 3. This drive falls between Patriot`s top drive, the Wildfire (with toggle NAND), and their original Pyro, which features more cost effective asynchronous NAND internals. Specifications list the 240GB as having 550MB/s read and 520MB/s write with 85,000 IOPS at 4k random write aligned disk access. The Patriot Pyro SE is TRIM-compatible, as well as backward compatible to SATA 2. It also comes with a respectable 3 year warranty, so it looks very competitive on paper. Let`s jump in and see how the Patriot Pyro SE performs."

Ergotron LX Triple Display Lift Stand @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Dec 13 2011 | 2:28P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Technology is rapidly evolving both in the gaming computer arena, as well as in many workstations. This evolution has created a slowly increasing demand for multiple monitor support. For those of you who have been running multiple monitors, like me, one of the biggest challenges is fitting them all on my desk. Another issue that is just as important is running multiple monitors without cluttering up your work area. The only way to do that is to do it with a multi monitor stand. Our friends over at Ergotron have been great to us and our friends with support for LANs. Today we have a chance to take a closer look at one of their stands to see what it?s all about, the LX Triple Display Lift Stand."

Icy Dock MB662USEB-2S-1 3.5 SATA Dual Bay Raid HDD Enclosure Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Tue, Dec 13 2011 | 2:28P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Icy Dock MB662USEB-2S-1 is just one of their hard drive enclosures that not only can house two hard drives, but it can set your drives up in a RAID for some added peace of mind. The MB662USEB-2S-1 isn?t much larger than a 3 ½? hard drive, so it can be considered portable as well. Icy Dock`s MB662USEB-2S-1 features 1394b fire wire, e-SATA and USB 2.0 connectivity, and it supports up to 3TB HDD for a total of 6 Terabytes of storage on the go. The MB662USEB-2S-1 is constructed of solid aluminum for added portability, strength, and protection."

NF-F12 consumes more than 50% less than many fans
     Tue, Dec 13 2011 | 12:00P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the most dramatic shifts in portable gaming history has been the surge in popularity of smartphones and tablets in the past two years. In 2009, Android and iOS devices accounted for ~19 percent of game revenue. In 2010, their combined share nearly doubled, while estimates are that the two platforms will account for 58 percent of gaming revenue in 2011. This shift, combined with the rising popularity of "freemium" distribution models in which much or all of a game's content is provided free of charge, while a subset of top-tier content is available for a nominal fee, has been hailed in some quarters as a sea change that'll ultimately rock the entire gaming industry and transform the way we play. We decided to round up a hefty batch of tablet games on the Toshiba Thrive Android slate that we reviewed earlier this year and see where they led us. Are fingers the future of gaming?

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.
