Cooler Master Silent Pro M2 1000W PSU Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Tue, Apr 09 2013 | 11:56A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cooler Master has been in the ranks of top tier PSU manufacturers for some time and are delivering their newest offering, the Silent Pro M2 1000W. The Silent Pro M2 1000W is an 80-Plus Silver certified PSU with plenty of power for even the most demanding of enthusiasts. The single 12v rail of the M2 is capable of delivering 960W and can be spread out to six 6-2 PCIe, two 4+4 CPU, twelve SATA and five 4-pin, with a floppy connector thrown in for legacy users on its modular cables. This combination can easily power tri-SLI and quad GPU setups, as well as dual CPU boards. To aid in cable routing, the M2 uses flat ribbon cables on the modular points which can also cut down on airflow resistance in case. Keeping things cool is a quiet HDB 135mm fan with speed control and an copper aluminum heatsink internally. Six way protection circuitry keeps the PSU and your system out of harm`s way, while Cooler Master backs the Silent Pro M2 1000W with a 5-Year warranty."

Cooler Master Storm Trigger w/Green Keyswitches @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Apr 09 2013 | 9:33A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Those of you who read our reviews often or know me personally know I have had a big interest in mechanical keyboards for years now. Most reviews spend time focusing on the keyboards features. When I heard that Cooler Master introduced their Storm Trigger with Cherry Green switches I had to get my hands on one. Not because of the keyboard, I already took a look at one in the past. But I was excited because everyone else sticks with the blue, brown, black, and red key switches and this time around we have a chance to check out something completely different."

WD My Passport 500GB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Tue, Apr 09 2013 | 9:19A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The WD My Passport drives have been around for quite sometime now. They provide fast and easy backup and storage whether you are on the go or at your desk. Just about two years ago we took a look at the My Passport Essential SE 1TB drive. WD is back with a new My Passport drive that offers a new enclosure design, backup and encryption software, 5 color choices and capacities up to 2TB. The My Passport Essential SE has been a fixture in my mobile computing setup, but will it soon be replaced by the newer My Passport? Read on as we take a look..."

Razer Ouroboros Elite Gaming Mouse @ Benchmark Reviews
     Tue, Apr 09 2013 | 9:05A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In 2009, Razer started working on a mouse with some ambitious goals. It would be a gaming-grade, wireless hybrid mouse. It would be ambidextrous, even adjustable - allowing the user to create that perfect fit. It would pack in the latest sensors and gaming technology, complete with a cloud-based driver solution. Three years later in late 2012, Razer finally released the Ouroboros. As soon as it was released, it quickly sold out of stock online and in stores and has since disappeared from regular channels. At Benchmark Reviews, I was lucky enough to get my hands on a Razer Ouroboros gaming mouse and take it for a spin..."

Everything You Need to know about Google Keep @ ThinkComputers.org
     Tue, Apr 09 2013 | 8:01A | Beginners Guides | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For many mobile users, note-taking apps and services are an indispensable tool to keep track of their schedule and tasks. In fact, Apple mobile users have long been enjoying the built-in Note feature on their devices for creating basic to-do list, while others refer to Evernote and Workflowy for more elaborate note-taking tasks. Fortunately, Google is jumping into the bandwagon. With what appears as a long overdue reply to Evernote and Apples built-in Note feature, Google has just unveiled its own note-taking service app called Keep, giving Android phone users a faster way to make and save reminders and notes."

[Tech ARP] BIOS Option Of The Week - SDRAM Page Hit Limit
     Tue, Apr 09 2013 | 12:01A | 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. This week, we will be taking a look at the *SDRAM Page Hit Limit *setting."

Windows 7 & Windows 8 vs. Ubuntu 13.04 & Fedora 18
     Mon, Apr 08 2013 | 11:24P | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last month Phoronix published Intel OpenGL benchmarks showing Windows 8 outperforming Ubuntu 13.04 with the latest Windows and Linux drivers from Intel. I also showed that even with the KDE and Xfce desktops rather than the default Unity/Compiz desktop to Ubuntu, Windows 8 still was faster on this Intel Ivy Bridge platform. The new benchmarks to share today from this Intel Ultrabook are the Windows 8 and Ubuntu 13.04 results but also with performance figures added in from Microsoft Windows 7 Professional Service Pack 1 x64 and Fedora 18."

SuperTalent USB 3.0 Express RC4 64GB Flash Drive Review
     Mon, Apr 08 2013 | 10:11P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back at ceBIT Germany 2013, SuperTalent was kind enough to provide an exclusive sample of their upcoming RC4 flash drive release and we conducted an impromptu review, discovering decent result for the form factor that it is. We were fortunate to bring that RC4 back to TSSDR and have had the opportunity to conduct a bit more detailed of an analysis. Not yet available for consumer purchase, we have to give you a heads up that this device is a release you might just want to watch for. The sheer beauty of the SuperTalent USB 3.0 Express RC4 flash drive is that it is one of the few devices that is Microsoft Windows To Go certified and is expected to come with a trial of MS `Windows To Go` on purchase. This means that you can plug the RC4 into any Windows machine and start right from the flash drive, running what is essentially a version of Windows 8. From there, you can then go to any other Windows system, boot the drive once again from the system bios and you are right back in your own OS environment once again."

OCZ Vertex 3.20 20nm 240GB SSD Review @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Apr 08 2013 | 7:45P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OCZ is certainly getting a lot of mileage from the Vertex moniker. First introduced way back in early 2009, it seems a lot longer than just four years ago. They have good reason to perpetuate the name as the Vertex drives have been one of if not the best selling line of SSDs ever. Back in 2011, we first had a look at the Vertex 3 drives featuring the then new SandForce SF-2281 controller. At the time, it featured 25nm -34nm (keep reading!) MLC NAND and set the bar for enthusiast level SSD performance. Fast forward to 2013 and OCZ has quietly released the latest Vertex 3 incarnation with a .20 mantissa tacked on to represent the 20nm MLC NAND contained within..."
