A Futurelooks News Flash - Fractal Designs NODE 605 Home Theatre PC Enclosure Reviewed
     Tue, Nov 27 2012 | 7:55P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Recently, we took a very close look at Fractal Designs Define R4. It was a surprising experience, providing a combination of both innovative and simple tried-and-true design features. As we mentioned in that review, Fractal Design takes a less is more approach to what goes in to designing enclosures. However, two things home theatre PC (HTPC) enclosures must have is an overall smaller chassis and both functionality and a pleasing aesthetic. We wanted to know if the new NODE 605 HTPC enclosure offers everything that consumers want. Does it have the right features and is it good enough for your media cabinet? *"

Intels Broadwell Goes BGA Only: Implications for Future Desktops
     Tue, Nov 27 2012 | 5:32P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While I do not welcome a BGA only Broadwell, we do see that Intel is not entirely abandoning the LGA based desktop market and enthusiasts. Haswell will still be available in LGA and offer performance that matches Broadwell but with slightly higher TDPs. Consider that we still do not have Ivy Bridge with LGA 2011 based systems, as those still rely upon Sandy Bridge B parts. The next generation after Broadwell will be offered in LGA. This does look to be a grand experiment by Intel with very little risk overall to their bottom line."

Avexir Core Series DDR3-1600 16GB Memory Kit Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Tue, Nov 27 2012 | 4:29P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It is not often we see a new company enter the market in competitive segment like enthusiast memory, but it seems we have a new player here are they seem to me making a name for themselves. Enter Avexir, and their Core Series memory modules. Over the past few months that is all Ive been hearing about! Whether it was on Facebook or forums people were raving about this memory! So of course we had to get our hands on some. Avexir was nice enough to send us over a 16GB quad channel kit (AVD3U16000904G-4CI) of their Core Series memory running at 1600 MHz with timings of 9-9-9-24 at 1.5v. Did I mention this memory lights up and looks pretty damn sweet inside your case?! Lets take a look"

Acer Aspire S3-391-6046 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Tue, Nov 27 2012 | 3:52P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Acer Aspire S3-391-6046 proves that you don`t have to start at $899 to get a decent ultrabook. To keep the price down, it uses an older second-generation Intel Core i3 processor, but that CPU is still faster than the AMD E series APU, Intel Atom, or Celeron CPU in other inexpensive laptops. It`s also an inexpensive way to introduce your family to Windows 8 and that operating system`s radically new interface."

     Tue, Nov 27 2012 | 11:23A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are some limitations that you might want to consider including the inability to access network-based devices when using the pass through Internet capability the Gauntlet provides. Also, data transfer performance on the wireless connectivity that the Gauntlet provides seemed pretty low, even with the 802.11n support."

     Mon, Nov 26 2012 | 11:23A | Software | PermaLink

The Paragon Hard Disk Manger 12 Professional software is pretty much exactly that. It`s professional and works as advertised in everything we tried.
