Kingwin Stryker STR-500 500W Fanless Power Supply Review
     Fri, Nov 25 2011 | 12:29A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the best parts of covering hardware for computer enthusiasts is that there are so many different needs for enthusiasts. Usually when someone thinks of someone as being an enthusiast, they relate them with someone who has the fastest or most powerful equipment available. This isn`t necessarily the case, especially with what we are looking at today. HTPC enthusiasts often look for something that is small and unobtrusive, or something that is silent yet powerful. Silent and powerful is something that is hard to come by with a HTPC, especially since fanless power supplies are few and far between. Thankfully we now have another option thanks to Kingwin launching their Stryker Fanless series. Today we are going to take a look at the 500W model. It boasts quite a few features that will allow it to fulfill a variety of roles and should also appeal to a wide customer base. Not only is the Stryker series a fanless power supply, but it also comes with enough connectors to power multi-GPU systems and has an 80Plus Platinum efficiency rating. Keep reading to find out more about Kingwin`s latest."

HTL Tests out New YouTube 3D Vision Playback Capability @Hi Tech Legion
     Thu, Nov 24 2011 | 10:18P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA 3D Vision playback in YouTube is made possible through HTML5 implementation. NVIDIA 3D Vision playback on 3D Vision Live is different in that it uses a Microsoft Silverlight plug-in to stream stereoscopic 3D content. With an HTML5 compliant browser and an NVIDIA GPU with the latest GeForce drivers (version 275 or higher), users can now share 3D content and enjoy over 6,000 stereoscopic 3D videos on the world`s most popular user-generated video website. Through NVIDIA 3DTV Play software, users can also now enjoy fullscreen 3D videos in the comfort of their living room in front of a big screen 3DTV or their 3D-capable home theater projector."

NVIDIA GeForce LAN 6 October 14-16 2011 Coverage @ Hi Tech Legion

Posted by: STAFF
DIA resurrected their GeForce LAN event recently to much success. With hundreds of gamers gathered aboard the USS Hornet, NVIDIA as well as some of other major players in the hardware industry organized a 3-days of fun and hard core gaming. DICE was also on deck to show off the biggest game title release this year: Battlefield 3. Lucky players not only got to play the game, but also participate in a LAN tournament as well for some sweet, sweet prizes. Attending the event, is our very own Editor-in-Chief Paul Marini Jr. who, armed with an HD camera, covered all things that were important: games, hardware and of course...booth babes!"

Silverstone Strider Essential Series (ST70F-ES)
     Thu, Nov 24 2011 | 5:57P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Until recently, the Strider Essential Series came in sizes up to 600 watts. This made it a great upgrade for your typical home system and mid end gaming system, but put it out of reach of higher end systems running multiple high end graphics cards, RAID arrays, etc. Looking to put the Strider Essential Series into the hands of those building high end systems, a 700W model is now available, and here on my test bench today."

A Futurelooks News Flash - Dell Inspiron 14z Notebook PC Review
     Thu, Nov 24 2011 | 5:42P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
a post to your own news section would totally be appreciated. If we`re sending our news to the wrong place, we apologize. Just send us a message with the correct address to the address below. Don`t forget that,Futurelooks has a DELL. And Dude, we`re checkin` it out... *Dell Inspiron 14z Notebook PC Review** * Dell has always been a pretty consistent name when it comes to the consumer computing end of the spectrum. They may not necessarily have the most powerful machines or the sexiest products, but they?ve done a good job at keeping the prices reasonable while still offering you a decent package. And that same fundamental philosophy is continuing with the Dell Inspiron 14z. It?s a step above the most entry-level range of laptops, giving you a ?thin and light? laptop that?s still ?packed with power.? * * *"

Posted by: STAFF
Some of us prefer small computers over the traditional sized ones and Micro-ATX is the answer to those preferences. Unfortunately good looking, high quality, micro-atx cases are hard to come by. Antec provided us with the little brother of the many times awarded P182 case, called P180 Mini. Let?s take a closer look at it and see how good it actually is!"

Gigabyte E350N-USB3 @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, Nov 24 2011 | 4:22P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to putting together a small functional PC for your parents or an HTPC for your living room there is a lot more to take into account than normal. In these situations noise, power usage, video performance, and cost also need to be considered. That?s what AMD had in mind when introducing their E350 with AMD Fusion Technology earlier this year. There are multiple manufactures that make and sell versions of this motherboard, but many of them don?t have Gigabytes features. Today we are going to take a closer look at the Gigabyte E350N-USB3 and hopefully show that it is capable of doing quite a lot."

NZXT Avatar S Gaming Mouse Review @ OCIA.net
     Thu, Nov 24 2011 | 3:29P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?Back in 2008 NZXT released their first gaming mouse, dubbed the Avatar. Other than driver updates to accommodate newer games and provide bug fixes, NZXT has seemed content to leave it at that. You might ask then how NZXT could improve upon the Avatar`s success enough to warrant a new product designation. Well you could start by replacing the 2600 DPI optical sensor with a 1600 DPI laser for better tracking on all surfaces. Then you eliminate two customizable buttons that the majority of users will probably never miss. Continue by reducing the switchable DPI selections from four down to three, throw in 16Kb of memory for storing of settings and profiles, and allow users to customize the LED lighting. Finally freshen up the aesthetics and slap an S model designation on it. Oh yeah, and cut the price almost in half.?"

OCZ Octane 512GB SSD Full Review - Indilinx Has Returned With Everest
     Thu, Nov 24 2011 | 3:11P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Indilinx Everest had a very good showing in OCZ`s Octane SSD. Sequential read and write performance was right at the top of the charts, and the new unit turned in some of the lowest latency and highest IOPS figures we`d seen from a SATA SSD to date, sticking it to Intel and SandForce in nearly all areas. Combine that high performance with some very low cost/GB figures and choosing the Octane almost becomes a no-brainer."

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.
