Guru3D Rig of the Month - January 2014
     Sun, Feb 09 2014 | 3:59A | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,We kick off a new year for the Rig Of The Month. The Guru3D Rig of the Month January 2014 was made by Luciel Campbell, in the past he already won a prize and that drove him towards his latest creation, called APASF. He has made a LAN box beyond believe with a modest steam-punk style. Actually, come to think of it, it maybe a little weird to look at really but it certainly is something unusual and beautiful, his rig called APASF aka Campus Party Europe 2013 London Edition we feel is a hit in design and customization. And that makes it an awesome Rig of the Month here at Guru3D.com"

Posted by: STAFF
Legit Reviews is checking out the new OCZ Storage Solutions Vertex 460 SSD today! We received a 240GB version this time around for evaluation which is pretty much the typical size of a review sample anymore. The Vertex 460 carries the same Barefoot 3 M10 controller we saw in the Vertex 450 and is now paired with 19nm Toshiba MLC NAND. The performance specifications are impressive for what is essentially an entry-level ?performance? drive with reads hitting 545MB/s max and 525MB/s writes max. Read on to see how it performs!"

Today we`re having a close look at the differences between the Radeon HD 6970 and the R9 280X."

Intel Next Unit of Computing (NUC) D54250WYKH - H is for 2.5 HDD Mount Review @MissingRemote
     Sat, Feb 08 2014 | 10:07A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Intel brought out their Haswell Next Unit of Computing (NUC), inclusion of features like SATA made it clear that they had bigger things in store for the little system. They were honest that some of this promise will require 3rd party case OEMs to fully realize, but Intel quickly announced that they would be creating their own chassis with 2.5 drive support a bit later. Providing this feature is interesting to two groups of users: those who have, or want to leverage a 2.5 SSD instead of mSATA or anyone who wants local, rotating, storage in the NUC. As it happens, now is the time, and when I sat down with Intel at CES to talk NUC they had one of the new 116.6mm x 112mm x 51.5mm enclosures for me to take back and run through the paces. *"

Angelbird SSD2Go Pro Mobile SSD Review (640GB)
     Sat, Feb 08 2014 | 9:56A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As a bit of a personal example, we reviewed the Angelbird SSD2Go USB 3.0 External SSD last June and that SSD has since been around the world and back, and then some. Wherever my camera equipment goes, it goes. The first gen Angelbird SSD2Go wreaks of performance, great capacity, an amazing look and a build that is matched by very few products in the world today, as can be seen by the above shots. Having the newest Angelbird Pro SSD 2 Go in hand, we have to wonder if Angelbird can match their release of the SSD2Go. By specs alone, their seems to be enough change to make a step in that direction in any case."

ECS GANK DRONE Z87H3-A3X Motherboard Review
     Sat, Feb 08 2014 | 9:06A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Z87H3-A3X is an interesting experiment by ECS where they successfully developed a value-priced motherboard without sacrificing on performance or feature set. Somehow, ECS was even able to package in an Intel Z87 chipset. The Z87H3-A3X motherboard does not have the sleek looks of its big brother, the Z87H3-A2X Extreme, but does have some nice features that differentiate the board besides its price."

NZXT Phantom 530 Full-Tower - BCCHardware
     Sat, Feb 08 2014 | 6:26A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Phantom 530 has a great setup for hard drives. It has six standard 3.5-inch slide out trays that can support normal hard drives or 2.5-inch SSD`s. These are broke into three cages that can be configured into a multitude of positions depending on your space requirements. Whether you have large video cards that need extra room, or you want to mount radiators on the bottom, NZXT definitely put some thought into flexibility."

WildStar: DevSpeak and Customisations with Kaeyi Dream @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Sat, Feb 08 2014 | 5:50A | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As an MMO veteran I feel customisation is everything. Whether its character, gear, class or housing; I just love it! I can`t get enough. I like the idea that I as a player can put my personal touch on something I potentially will invest hundreds of hours on. MMO`s (especially RPG`s) count on the player having a very close relationship with their playable character, a bond that keeps them coming back for more and more. That bond wouldn`t be as prevalent if we all were forced to use the same character, look the same, play the same class and live in the same house."

Open-Source NVIDIA Driver Is Still Sour For Some GPUs
     Fri, Feb 07 2014 | 11:36A | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nouveau, the reverse-engineered open-source NVIDIA Linux graphics driver that`s been in development now for the better part of a decade, is working brilliantly for some NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards while for other NVIDIA GPUs the experience is a sloppy mess. Using the Linux 3.13 kernel and Mesa 10.1-devel Gallium3D driver code installed on top of Ubuntu 13.10, here`s what the experience is like when trying a number of GeForce graphics cards with this latest open-source driver code."
