latest Corsair Dominator GT Kit
     Wed, Apr 04 2012 | 9:27P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ile last year was the push for higher frequencies netting us outrageous 2600 MHz kits, this year is primed to be the year of capacity. As the standard capacity of any gaming or enthusiast platform increases from 8GB to 16GB and larger, we will start to see even higher density kits released. Today we look at one such kit, the Corsair Dominator GT 32GB Kit.

Thermaltake Overseer RX-I Midi Tower Review
     Wed, Apr 04 2012 | 9:27P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Yesterday i uploaded a review surrounding the latest PC Case manufactured by NEXUS, one of the latest players in the market, called the Prominent R which may not have the most radical design in the market but it does carry a large number of features making it a very good overall solution in the midi tower segment of the market. However since the design of the case may not appeal to everyone out there today i decided to take things a bit further (more like at the opposite side) and bring you a review about one of the latest midi tower offerings by Thermaltake called the Overseer RX-I (VN700M1W2N) which also happens to have a large number of features but this time over the design part of the unit has nothing simple about it (you can tell for yourself just by looking at the intro image).

Intel is ready to officially announce its latest 7 series chipsets with native s
     Wed, Apr 04 2012 | 9:26P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Diablo III is the sequel to one of the most popular games of all time; its launch on May 15 could cripple college graduation rates, triple the number of insomniacs worldwide, and slash national productivity. Believe us--we know. We've spent about six weeks with the beta and have just recently escaped from Khanduras to detail our findings. This time, there's a twist, however. Our preview is written in two parts; a big-picture examination of the game and a fine-grained, behind-the-scenes look at how Diablo 3 deals with some of the problems and design flaws endemic to its predecessor.

"The original Phantom was a very eye-catching case with truly unique looks and also some funky color options and the Phantom 410 is supposed to be a very close relative to the original case. Now lets find what the fuzz is all about! "

I am often surprised when I get together with friends to see the power supplies driving their otherwise high end PC builds. The same, otherwise sane, friends will often spend hundreds on video cards and high end CPUs but skimp on building a solid foundation, a proper power supply.

ASRock Fatal1ty 990FX Professional Motherboard - BCCHardware
     Wed, Apr 04 2012 | 10:55A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We?ve reviewed quite a few ASRock motherboards over the years and one thing we?ve found is that when they put the ?Professional or Extreme? tag onto the name of any of their products they usually have the features to back it up. This motherboard has so many features that even after over a month of it being on my test bench I was still finding features that I hadn?t had a chance to play with yet. This isn?t your average workstation board, this board is built for the person who wants to tweak every last bit of performance out of their PC. . ."

OCZ Vertex 4 SSD 256GB and 512GB review
     Wed, Apr 04 2012 | 10:35A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the OCZ Vertex 4 256 and 512GB SSD. Armed with a new Indilinx Everest 2 controller this SSD is advertised as one of the fastest on the block with screaming IOPs performance. Obviously it will pack a 6Gbps SATA interface and big NAND Flash memory partitions. This SATA3 version as such can deliver speeds of up to 535MB/s of bandwidth and 85K 4KB IOPS. Lets have a look"

OCZ Vertex 4 512GB SSD Initial Review - Vertex Returns to its Indilinx Roots (Firmware Progression Testing)
     Wed, Apr 04 2012 | 10:25A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I`ve entitled this section `Thoughts` because I won`t consider the Vertex 4 `Final` until it sees a second shipping firmware revision. The Vertex 4 is an exciting product with a very capable Indilinx controller, and while I can understand OCZs desire to bring it to market as quickly as possible, I can`t help but think their hardware team beat their firmware team to the punch."

OCZ Technology Vertex 4 (Indilinx Everest 2) 256GB and 512GB SSD Review
     Wed, Apr 04 2012 | 9:17A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I find OCZ`s current situation similar to the early 1990`s 49ers. OCZ had a very good run with SandForce, winning best consumer SSD awards with both the Vertex 2 and a year later with Vertex 3. Just like Joe, the SandForce SF-2000 series is starting to look a little older and the young competition from other makers is starting to catch up. SandForce might offer the fastest controller to date, but that might not be the case starting next season. Before Steve Young was traded to the 49ers he played in Tampa Bay. There he had two horrible seasons, but everyone could see the talent including 49ers head coach Bill Walsh. Indilinx, in their later years as a separate company was not competitive with controllers from Intel and Samsung. In a sense OCZ traded to pick up Indilinx, mainly their RAM and peripherals product lines (they were actually just dropped). In their yearly product cycle OCZ was ready to release something new, something fresh, but their star quarterback SandForce was injured. OCZ had already released an impressive top to bottom lineup of products based on the SandForce technology so there weren`t any gaps to fill with SandForce based products."

OCZ Vertex 4 256 GB with Indilinx Controller @ ocaholic
     Wed, Apr 04 2012 | 9:07A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since OCZ has bought Indilinx, the manufacturer presented - with the Octane - an entry level SSD which offers an attractive price point. With the Vertex 4 OCZ releases their new performance SSD, which is based on the latest Indilinx IDX400M00-BC Controller. This is reason enough for us to be curious about how this thing is going to perform in our benchmark parcours. In this review we`re going to take a closer look at the 256 Gigabyte model which should good performance and at an attractive price point."

Corsair Vengeance M60
     Wed, Apr 04 2012 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the last few years Corsair has been rapidly expanding their reach into the enthusiast PC market from their roots as a simple memory manufacturer, getting into everything from cases and cooling to power supplies and speakers. Now, Corsair is flexing its retail muscles once again to go after the bread and butter of industry heavyweights Logitech and Razer, attacking them head-on with a new line of Vengeance gaming peripherals. I've already taken a look at Corsair's Vengeance 1500 headset and particularly enjoyed it, but how will their mice and keyboards stack up as first-generation products with fledgling drivers? To find out, I took an in-depth look at the Vengeance M60 and M90 mouse, two wildly different mice that cater to the FPS and MMO crowds with various differences and yet many similarities. Grab a soda and get comfortable; this review is rather long.

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.
