Enermax Fulmo Mid-Tower @ Techreaction.net
     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 11:27A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, we have the smaller brother of the Enermax Fulmo GT, the Fulmo. It comes packed with features for a mid-tower which Enermax hopes will put it up at the top of everyone?s buying lists. The vertical HDD mounting brackets seem like a genius idea to help free up space and allow for more airflow. The top I/O area sports a USB 3.0 and 2.0 connections, as well as a hot-swap dock for use with your 2.5? and 3.5? drives. They have also included a velcro strap for your PSU to help give you some added security if you plan on moving around your case. Let?s move on and see what this Fulmo can really do in our testing ? Read on."

Cougar Evolution Full Tower PC Case @ TestFreaks
     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 11:24A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Up for review today I?ve got another PC case called the Evolution and it?s from a company called Cougar. This case is not exactly what I would call expensive coming in at around $100, but it?s got plenty of features that even enthusiast users can appreciate like room for large video cards, and SATA dock built-in and a removable hard drive cage. The case is all black, inside and out and it features a built-in fan controller for up to six fans to keep your system cool and quiet."

Corsair Vengeance M60 Gaming Mouse Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 11:23A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I?m no different. My ?gaming? mice journey started out with a Microsoft IntelliMouse Explorer; then a Logitech MX 1000; then the Logitech MX Revolution; then the Logitech Performance MX; and currently with the Logitech G700. If you look at all these mice you can see that other than the MX 1000 the layout and look do not differentiate from each other much. The G700 I possess I thought was by far the best mouse overall I?ve ever used. Other than the battery life, when in wireless mode sucks balls, the mouse was a perfect fit for me. The size, the speed, the button layout, the complete overall feel?it was amazing. So, when Bob asked me to review the Corsair Vengeance M60 Performance Gaming Mouse I was a bit hesitant. I don?t like reviewing products that I have a defined bias towards even before I open the box. I couldn?t see how anything could be as good as my G700. Well, I?ve been using the M60 for 3 weeks now and boy was I wrong."

Corsair Carbide 300R Case Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 11:22A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
*Regardless of their dominance within the case market, one area where Corsair hadn?t ventured into has been the entry level sub-$90 category. But that?s all about to change with the introduction of the new Carbide 300R. It boasts a good list of features and a relatively neutral design but will this be enough to overcome some fierce competition? * *"

Auna PS-7801 Wireless Speaker System Review - XSReviews
     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 11:19A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The idea behind the Auna PS-7801s is a sound one -- plug the transmitter into your hi-fi, MP3 player or PC, then use the speakers wirelessly up to 100 metres away. Admittedly at that range you`ll be in a bit of a fix if you want to change tracks, but whatever, we`ll go with it. With down-firing subwoofers, integrated handles and some very PC gamer blue LED lighting, the Auna PS-7801s could be a big hit if they live up to their promise of power and portability. Let`s have a closer look and find out. A link to the article would be much appreciated."

ASUS Sabertooth P67 Socket 1155 ATX Motherboard Review @ Bigbruin.com
     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 11:17A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS name has always been synonymous with quality and performance, and the Sabertooth P67 doesn`t disappoint. We actually got a better overclock from it than the Maximus IV Extreme we looked at previously. Not that we put all that much effort into either overclock, but getting an extra 1GHz out of the Sabertooth P67 with minimal effort was impressive."

     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 11:16A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
That one set of head phones would be the Vulcan ANC, the ANC standing for Active Noise Canceling. The Vulcan head set like many sets on the market want to give the purchaser great noise quality and comfort which is hard to find sometimes. We will be taking a look at the Vulcan and revealing just what we think of them. Are they only good for gaming or can you enjoy them listening to your favorite genre of music? We will find out shortly."

ASUS Radeon HD 7850 DirectCU II Top @ ocaholic
     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 11:13A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With its HD 7850 Direct CU II Top, ASUS shows a factory overclocked version of AMD`s latest mid-range GPU. Additionally this card got ASUS` powerful DirectCUII cooler as well as an attractive design. Theoretically this card even has the potential to outperform a Radeon HD 6950. Amongst other things this is what we`ll show in the following review."

AMD FX-6200 CPU Review: A Small Bulldozer Refresh
     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 11:11A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I do not hate this processor. Neither do I love it though. The Bulldozer concept looked great on paper. Implementing it is another story altogether. A popular theory behind why the processor acts as it does is that AMD simply does not have the manpower to hand tune large portions of the chip. There is extensive use of automatic place and route of transistors on the software side, but I have heard it said that this results in a design that is about 20% slower and about 20% larger than a largely hand tuned design. When we start thinking of these numbers, we can look at the size of Bulldozer cores vs. that of the Intel i7/i5 series of parts. The Intel parts are smaller and have a much higher IPC, yet are still clocked aggressively to be the fastest performers on the block."

Palit JetStream GeForce GTX 680 2GB Video Cards in SLI
     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 11:05A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The other day we had a chance to look at the first non-reference NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 from Palit in the form of the JetStream GTX 680. Impressed with what the company was doing so quickly out the gate we had to try and get the opportunity to get a second and see what was going on with SLI performance. This was going to give us the opportunity to try two things: the first was to see just how SLI is looking with the latest generation of NVIDIA cards. The second was to see just how the GTX 680 in SLI compares against its biggest competitor, the HD 7970 in CrossFire."

Devil May Cry HD Collection (XBOX 360) Game Review @ HardwareHeaven.com

Posted by: STAFF
Devil May Cry HD Collection (XBOX 360) Game Review @ HardwareHeaven.com With the release of DMC: Devil May Cry, a reimagined take on the game universe, fast approaching Capcom are giving those unfamiliar with the series a chance to head back over a decade to the original, then through two sequels. With a HD makeover and bonus content as well as the special edition of DMC3: Dante`s Awakening all on one disc, at a value price, this might just be the release to whittle away those Easter holiday hours."

Lucid Virtu MVP (HyperFormance) Tested with ASRock Z77 and Intel Ivy Bridge
     Mon, Apr 09 2012 | 9:48A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We first got the chance to check out the latest in Lucid technology a couple of weeks back at a motherboard manufacturers HQ. For a lot of us Lucid is a bit of a dirty word that reminds us of this almost useless kind of technology that let us combine NVIDIA and AMD video cards together for added performance. It never really kicked off for the most part and we haven`t heard heaps about them for a little bit. Lucid Virtu MVP, though, is the latest technology from the company and it`s something we`re starting to see motherboard manufacturers promote. Today we`re going to check out what it`s about while also see what it does on the performance side of things."

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.

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.
