Arctic MC001-BD Media Center @ techPowerUp
     Thu, Nov 24 2011 | 2:57P | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Arctic has been diversifying their product range greatly in recent years. While their foray into some things like toys or gaming consoles may be a bit too far fetched for some, the MC001-BD Media Center takes the company back to the roots. The Home Theater PC offers all the bells & whistles like Blu-Ray, USB 3.0, Intel Atom in combination with Radeon Mobility graphics and much, much more, while managing to cool the entire system passively. We take a look at the new, compact system along with a few accessories to see if it can take center stage and shine."

Antec 1100 Chassis Review
     Thu, Nov 24 2011 | 2:54P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Taking a look at the sides, I`m quite happy. Personally, I love chassis with large windows - I like to show off my running hardware, even when it isn`t all that impressive. On the Eleven Hundred, the window takes up over half the side panel in width and nearly the full size in height. It also includes two pre-drilled 120 mm fan spots for the addition of your own fans and aid cooling without hampering the view too much. The other panel behind the motherboard tray has a single 120 mm fan location for cooling from the back. This is perhaps one feature that most chassis still don`t provide today. It`s a simple addition and placing a fan here should bring your temps down even more."

X79 / Z68 / 990FX CrossFireX HD 6970 x3 Performance Analysis
     Thu, Nov 24 2011 | 2:52P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The bottom line all along has been that you`re not going to see any improvement in video card performance unless you`re hitting a CPU limitation. With how intensive games are these days, hitting a CPU limitation becomes harder and harder - even more so when you start to throw ultra-high resolutions into the mix. Today we`ll be looking at the performance of our X79 platform with the three Sapphire HD 6970s on hand. Because there`s not a lot more that needs to be said, we can really just get into the testbed side of things and cover that quickly before we get into the performance side then wrap everything up."

Overclockers.com - ASUS Rampage IV Extreme Review
     Thu, Nov 24 2011 | 2:49P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The last ASUS board we looked at was for AMD?s new Bulldozer platform, the Crosshair V Formula. It is currently their top of the line AMD board, but it isn?t top of the line like an ?Extreme? ASUS board. Today we?re looking at the Rampage IV Extreme, and let me tell you, top of the line may not be strong enough."

Rosewill Blackhawk Ultra Super Tower Case Review @Hi Tech Legion
     Thu, Nov 24 2011 | 2:47P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Rosewill continues on with the Blackhawk series of chassis, with the introduction of the Blackhawk Ultra Super Tower. The Blackhawk Ultra comes at a price point of $220 US and slides into what we consider the enthusiast segment of the market. This super tower boasts quite a feature set like dual PSU bays top and bottom mounted, it supports everything from ATX to HPTX motherboards. The cooling potential is phenomenal and includes 5 X 140mm fans and 3 X 230mm fans with plenty of room to add a lot more. There are 4 external 5 ¼ optical drive bays, 10 internal 2 ½ / 3 ½ HDD bays and the list of endless features seem to go on. /"

Posted by: STAFF
As part of the Sandy Bridge Extreme CPU launch, Benchmark Reviews received several new X79 Express motherboards to test. Each motherboard`s aimed at a different audience and has different features. In this article I`ll compare the stock and overclocked performance of each motherboard to see if there are any significant differences."

REVIEW: Sapphire 6670 1GB Single Slot @ PureOverclock
     Thu, Nov 24 2011 | 2:42P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Sapphire Radeon 6670 (Single Slot) is a modest card: low-power, passively cooled, and marketed to consumers who may be interested in something for their HTPC or the occasional foray into some light gaming. It packs a bit of horsepower, but runs quiet and power frugal, and it`s the only single slot version out there; no other company has one of these except Sapphire, so we have a rather interesting combination to offer here to consumers. Let`s take a closer look at the Sapphire Radeon 6670 1GB single slot card and see how it fares."

TiVECO TVPS450 Power Supply Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Thu, Nov 24 2011 | 2:40P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
From time to time, we like to buy power supplies below USD 30 to see how they stack up against more expensive models from better-known companies. The TiVECO TVPS450, which is also sold in the US as ePower TVPS450, is a 450 W power supply that costs only USD 20, with the manufacturer promising that it can deliver its labeled wattage at 50º C and 80% minimum efficiency. Is that really true? Let`s find out."

The Inside Perspective: Antec s Jessie Lawrence New Cases and Future of Antec
     Thu, Nov 24 2011 | 2:37P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the release of the new P280 and Eleven Hundred cases though (the former of which we have already reviewed) Antec is hoping to make a resurgence into the enthusiast market. And while I definitely was impressed with the P280 there is still some work to do and, luckily, Antec knows it and is moving forward in the right direction. Recently, Antec`s Communications Manager Jessie Lawrence stopped by the office and we sat down for a small interview to ask him about the new case designs, what he likes about working in this cut throat industry and how Antec plans to stem the tides against the competition."

PC Power & Cooling Silencer MK III 600 W @ techPowerUp
     Thu, Nov 24 2011 | 2:00P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As technology advances necessarily some old designs and beliefs are left behind. Without any doubt in today?s highly competitive market only the companies who decide to adapt to the current user demands and needs will see their sales increasing. Apparently this is what PC Power & Cooling did with their new Silencer MK III PSUs in which the abandoned the non modular design and adopted a semi modular one."

BitFenix Raider @ techPowerUp
     Thu, Nov 24 2011 | 1:49P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The latest chassis from BitFenix aims to offer relentless performance. It offers a cool looking design, three retail Spectre cooling fans connected to a fan controller and a whooping four USB 3.0 ports. But will the Raider manage to flex its muscles and withstand our bombardment or will it fail to defend itself?"

Cooler Master Notepal U Stand @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, Nov 24 2011 | 9:44A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are going to take a look at Cooler Masters new Notepal U Stand. It?s similar in design to a few of their previous models, but with the stand functionality paired up with the Notepal?s adjustability it has the potential to be great product. Rather than do the same-ol laptop cooler review, our new writer JD will be taking a look at the Notepal U Stand. JD will be covering the Notepal U Stand from a consumer point of view rather our typical technical perspective. Combined with the Notepal U Stand?s features it should make for a good read, click to find out how it turned out."

Bitfenix Outlaw Case Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Thu, Nov 24 2011 | 9:19A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Bitfenix Outlaw is a budget mid-tower case, coming with a unique feature: its motherboard tray is located against the right-side panel of the case, instead of against the left-side panel as it is usually. This way, you have to remove its right-side panel and not its left-side panel in order to open it. Costing only USD 50, let`s see if it is a good option for users who are looking for a nice and yet inexpensive case."

Posted by: STAFF
The Kingston Wi-Drive 32GB wireless flash storage device is a very cool little gadget that could make using your iPod, iPad, or just about any other Wi-Fi enabled device much more enjoyable. You can effortlessly expand your capacity for movies, music, photos, and other files, and you also have the option of sharing your content with a few friends, too."

Corsair Carbide 500R @ techPowerUp
     Thu, Nov 24 2011 | 8:57A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Carbide 500R is the high-performance version of the 400R with additional cooling and an edgier design. Will these be enough to justify the higher price tag and will it leave us as impressed as with the more affordable brethren?"

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.

Rating:
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.
