Romex FancyCache Review – SSD Performance At 13GB/s and 765,000 IOPS
     Wed, Mar 14 2012 | 12:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Have you ever wondered what you could do with all of your high bandwidth, low latency RAM? Romex Software’s FancyCache has a suggestion for you: cache your drives. Caching has been all the rage lately in the SSD world. If there isn’t a caching solution to your liking now, chances are their will be soon enough although such options are the industries attempts to marry the low cost per GB of HDDs with the speed of SSDs. Our review today of Romex FancyCache is going to be something just a bit different!

The Ultimate CeBIT 2012 Booth Babe Collection
     Wed, Mar 14 2012 | 12:03P | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our first edition of the ‘Beauty of CeBIT 2012‘ went over with such success that we thought all might appreciate one more run through on the last day of the show for some last minute shots. You are going to have to trust me when I say this is not as easy of a task as it seems, simply for the fact that the last day of CeBIT is open to the public or ‘end users’ as many like to say and this place is packed. In a few Hangars, there were actually lines to get in as the Hangar was full. Is that even possible?

SilverStone TJ04-Evolution Mid-Tower
     Wed, Mar 14 2012 | 12:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"In SilverStone's own description, they bring to light that the original chassis concept was introduced in 2004 for this specific Temjin chassis. The original TJ04 looks like a relic at this stage in chassis design as well and is a great candidate to take everything out of the box that made is so past tense in today's market and introduce it as something much better equipped to battle with the massive amount of competition in the mid-tower segment. So, SilverStone did just that - they took one of the better selling cases of it's given era and redesigned just about everything, but left enough of the original design to remind you of the original design. On the outside there is plenty new going on, the face plate has been redesigned, but is where the new Temjin keeps the design elements of the original. There is a windowed version of this chassis and we will be seeing that version today. On the opposing panel there is a dual fan filter for a new way of introducing air into the Temjin. Speaking of filters, the top of the chassis also has a dual fan filter that is removable. Even the back of the case gets a bit of the redesign to offer things wanted in today's chassis. On the inside there is too much that has changed to go over it at this point, you will need to keep reading if you want to see just what the new evolution of the TJ04 offers there."

SSD Caching ? ?SSD but my friends call me cache? @ TechwareLabs
     Wed, Mar 14 2012 | 11:40A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For those users that want their cake and eat it too, how do we leverage the speed of SSD drives with the raw storage capacity of traditional spinning drives? The answer, SSD caching. Originally only available on higher end enterprise class storage, such as Adaptecs maxCache or LSIs CacheCade, this technology is beginning to show up in the consumer market. Essentially this allows a user to configure one (or more) SSD drives to be used for read or write cache for frequently accessed data residing on slower spinning HDD media. This frequently accessed data sitting on spinning HDD media will be served by the faster SSD drives, and the end result is SSD like performance with the raw capacity of traditional HDD media."

Seasonic SS-350M1U Modular 80Plus Gold Power Supply Review
     Wed, Mar 14 2012 | 9:00A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Seasonic SS-350M1U power supply made a very good showing. The PSU delivered good voltage regulation with very good efficiency and relatively clean outputs. And it comes with a good compliment of modular cables/connectors. If you are in the market for a rack mount, server style power supply with 350W output capacity, this would be a good one to consider."

GIGABYTE HD7950 Windforce x3 Review @ Vortez
     Tue, Mar 13 2012 | 4:50P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The AMD HD7950 has impressed us thus far with its fantastic performance so when GIGABYTE offered up their Windforce cooled HD7950 we were understandably excited. The Windforce cooler we first saw last year on their GTX560 was held in high acclaim thanks to it`s ability to keep heat at bay thereby allowing higher overclocks while not sounding like a jumbo jet mid take-off. The GIGABYTE HD7950 Windforce cooler however increases the twin fan setup on the heatsink to three. This may seem like overkill as the reference HD7950 is hardly a roasting hot graphics card so it remains to be seen if the custom cooled card from GIGABYTE can raise the benchmark and make use of that extreme cooling design with some extra ordinary overclocks."

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.
