SSD NEWS: BIWIN S836 Elite SATA 3 120GB SSD Review - Top Vantage Performance Achieved
     Sat, Apr 14 2012 | 1:20P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This report is an analysis of the newly released BIWIN S836 Elite SATA 3 120GB SSD and if you haven`t heard of BIWIN prior to this report, you wouldn`t be the first as we learned of them only a few weeks ago while at CeBIT 2012 in Germany. In fact, we had every intention of introducing BIWIN to North America as the `new kid on the block`, at least up until we learned that BIWIN had already shipped over one hundred million (100,000,000) flash storage devices worldwide as of the date of this report."

ASUS P9X79 Deluxe Review
     Sat, Apr 14 2012 | 11:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I have to say this board was just as much fun to overclock as the R4E. Thankfully, there are fewer settings to massage in the BIOS. Pushing the i7 3960X is fun in its own right, but after looking at what the Second Generation Core i7 3820 was capable of, I wanted to see if ASUS had indeed built up the component structure well enough to push this chip just as hard as the R4E. The result was a bench stable 5.1GHz from a partially locked chip. Any which way you go, the ASUS motherboards and Core i7 3960, 3820 CPU`s give you have a stout combination that can deliver all the performance potential of your CPU and memory."

GSkill RipjawsX 32GB 2133MHz DDR3 review
     Sat, Apr 14 2012 | 10:18A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the GSkill RipjawsX 32GB 2133MHz DDR3 memory kit. That`s right, a 32GB kit. This 4x 8GB kit can be set at 2133 MHz CAS9 with just the flick of an XMP switch in the BIOS. The end results will be very interesting, our test suite software will be run of the mill, we`ll simply take all standard PC configurations and processors and compare this memory seated on a Core i7 2600K / Z68 chipset setup and evaluate it to the baseline performance of other chipsets/processors and their respective reference baseline performance.

MSI HD 7870 Twin Frozr III 2 GB @ techPowerUp
     Sat, Apr 14 2012 | 9:43A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI`s HD 7870 TwinFrozr III improves on the AMD reference design by adding the company`s dual-fan cooling solution to the card. It also comes with increased clock speeds of 1050 MHz core and 1200 MHz memory out of the box. In our testing we saw great additional overclocking potential, well into the 1200 MHz range."

Qualcomm Calls To Kill All Proprietary Drivers For Good
     Sat, Apr 14 2012 | 8:11A | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Next week at the 6th annual Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit in San Francisco, two Qualcomm Atheros engineers will be speaking about their Linux device driver development experiences and will go as far as calling for all proprietary drivers to be killed for good. They talk not just about killing proprietary drivers for Linux, but for all operating systems. Can the plans they lay out to kill all proprietary drivers work or is this just a big pipe-dream?"

ROCCAT Kone Plus Max Customization Laser Gaming Mouse Review
     Fri, Apr 13 2012 | 4:34P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
What does this do for you? Well, it allows you to use the Easy Shift on the mouse to work the keyboard controls and the other way around as well. Not exactly a must have in mice, but if you are going to be taking the Easy Shift to keyboards as well, the ability to use either of them to help control the other is full of win in my book. The mouse in question we are going to look at today from ROCCAT is the Kone[+]. This right hand only mouse offers styling to the hilt, with some really cool lighting features that will allow this mouse to match with any decor or do things that will make all of your friends green with envy. Since I have the ability to jump ahead and check things out before I deliver the review to you, I can assure you that as long as you are a right hander, there isn`t a thing that can`t be changed or addressed in some fashion to completely customize the look, feel and functionality of the Kone[+] via the included driver and software you must download to get the full effect of what ROCCAT is trying to do here. That is simply to offer things in a way that haven`t been thought of and make the time you do spend with your peripherals as enjoyable as possible. I say we run the Kone[+] through the gamut of tests and see just how well they did this time."

Palit GeForce GTX 680 JetStream review
     Fri, Apr 13 2012 | 4:30P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the Palit GeForce GTX 680 JetStream edition graphics card. The end result is an impressive looking beast, the customized GTX 680 has a big three fan cooler applied to it. The card`s base clock frequency is set higher at default for you, at 1084 MHz with a dynamic turbo that clocks up-to 1150 MHz. And then the memory it runs stock at 6300 MHz meaning that both the GPU core and thus memory have been factory overclocked for you. Read the article here"

Open-Source NVIDIA Driver Approaches Stable State
     Fri, Apr 13 2012 | 4:27P | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nouveau, the reverse-engineered open-source graphics driver for NVIDIA`s entire range of graphics processors, is reaching a stable state where it`s exiting the staging area of the Linux 3.4 kernel and being considered part of the standard, stable kernel configuration. How though is the Nouveau driver working out compared to NVIDIA`s official, closed-source Linux graphics driver? Here are some new benchmarks from ten different graphics cards and other information on the state of Nouveau."

NZXT Switch 810 Hybrid Full-Tower Case Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Fri, Apr 13 2012 | 4:24P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The NZXT Switch 810 Full-tower case is a mainstream-level case. The Switch 810 from NZXT features a high-airflow design that can house up to ten 140mm/120mm fans, and can also hold a triple radiator, which should be more than enough to cool the current line-up of high-performance enthusiast class components. The four external 5.25 drive bays, as well as the six HDD bays inside the NZXT Switch 810, use tool-less locks for convenient installation. The NZXT Switch 810 can house long video cards, up to 375mm without the internal adjustable fan, and 350mm with the adjustable fan installed. Unruly power cables inside the Switch 810 can be tamed with a smart cable management routing system. For $169.99, the NZXT Switch 810 provides a full featured chassis that has substantial value and convenience that consumers should be looking for.///"

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
