Intel Core i7 4960X Ivy Bridge E Review @ RWLabs
     Fri, Sep 06 2013 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ivy Bridge E is in many ways the same old same old we have seen from Intel over the last few launches. Ultimately we can chalk this up to a lack of competition from AMD, so what we get is a good processor that is only slightly better than the previous generation in terms of performance. Being an owner of an Intel 3960X myself I see no reason to upgrade from the previous generation, useless you are really concerned about the 20W difference in power consumption. From our experience most people that can afford a $1000 processor are not concerned about the power bill and with only marginal improvements on the performance front there is no reason to upgrade from Sandy Bridge E at this point.

4TB version of their Red series NAS hard drives
     Fri, Sep 06 2013 | 9:01A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We were already very much convinced about the qualities of the Red disks from Western Digital we tested earlier. The same holds for de 4TB model. The disk definitely isn't the fastest around, but that's not what is sets out to achieve in the first place. It does, however, consume very little energy, which is very important for disks in a NAS device, which may be on 24/7. Noise levels are also well within the margins of what we consider to be acceptable, even though other disks in the Red line-up were even quieter.

Intel Core i7 4960X / 4930K / 4820K Ivy Bridge-E review: high-end naar 22nm
     Fri, Sep 06 2013 | 9:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As you probably already know today Intel launched their new high-end processor series codenamed Ivy Bridge-E. We’ve tested all three new CPUs, the six-core Core i7 4960X, the six-core Core i7 4930K and the quad-core Core i7 4820K. We’ve compared the CPUs to 47 other Intel and AMD chips. The comparison between the 3970X and 4960X (old and new flagship) and the 4820K and 4770K (equally prices quad-cores in the Ivy Bridge-E and Haswell series) get special attention.

Logitech Zone Touch Mouse T400 Review @ Techgage
     Fri, Sep 06 2013 | 8:08A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Logitechs Zone Touch T400 may look weird for the lack of some features you expect in a modern mouse a scroll wheel, thumb buttons and it might be easy to dismiss since it doesnt boast a premium-level price point. But its revolutionary feature a touch zone that takes the place of the scroll wheel just might be right for you."

Patriot Viper 3 Series Black Mamba PC3-19200 16GB Review
     Thu, Sep 05 2013 | 10:22P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overclocking on Intel Haswell processors is quite a bit different from what we are used to in the last few generations, where the CPU clock speeds did not influence the clock speed the memory controller could handle. Entry to Haswell memory overclocking 101 shows that while the CPU may handle a nice overclock of up 4.7GHz to 5.0GHz on really impressive examples, the memory may not scale up past 1866MHz or 2133MHz at those CPU clock speeds, even though the memory modules are rated much higher. What I found on both of my CPUs was that anything greater than around 4250MHz on the CPU would not run the memory at 2600MHz or higher. The G.Skill Trident comparison modules would run just over 2600MHz at 4.4GHz, but the Black Mamba Viper 3 modules would cause a lockup at that speed. After plenty of trial and error, I was able to push the modules up to 2800MHz by relaxing the timings to 13-15-14-35 and letting the motherboard assign the rest of the parameters."

MSI Z87I Mini-ITX motherboard review
     Thu, Sep 05 2013 | 5:43P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,For this article we test and review the MSI Z87I series motherboard. You better grab a magnifying glass, as this is the smallest fully fetched Z87 motherboard you will ever see. Yep, the Z87I is made on a Mini-ITX form factor, that means you can seat a processor as powerful as the Core i7 4770K onto a motherboard that is 17x17 CM. Amazing really, especially when you will learn it still has a fully fetched PCIe x16 slot, Dual Gigabit Ethernet, WIFI, USB 3.0 and heck even four SATA 6 Gbps ports."

BIOS Option Of The Week - PCI IDE Busmaster.
     Thu, Sep 05 2013 | 12:02P | BIOS | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meager beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition. Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend.

Intel Ivy Bridge-E Core i7-4960X IPC and OCing Review
     Thu, Sep 05 2013 | 12:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We debut Intel's next $1000 Extreme Desktop processor, the Core i7-4960X, this time with Ivy Bridge architecture and a couple of extra cores thrown in for good measure. It is a beast of a CPU for those that can actually harness its power and bandwidth, but how much better is it than Sandy Bridge-E and Haswell at the same clocks?

The ASUS GTX 670 is a powerhouse in a small package. At just 6.7 inches it can easily it into the majority of small form factor cases, yet it has the power to run the most demanding games on the market such as Crysis 3 and Metro Last Light.

ASUS MAXIMUS VI EXTREME (Intel LGA 1150) @ techPowerUp

Posted by: STAFF
Not everyone needs a board built to push the limits of what is possible with up-to-date silicon, but I and many other enthusiasts most definitely do. Achieving records requires a special board, and ASUS`s MAXIMUS VI EXTREME is that board. Is it EXTREME?"

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.
