Attitude One Tunguska 7.1 Virtual Surround USB Gaming Headset
     Thu, Nov 28 2013 | 2:53P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Well it seems that we`ve enjoyed more PC game titles inside November than the entire 2013 and so as mentioned a few weeks ago we decided to take advantage of that in order to test some of the game peripherals we have here. Now normally it takes us around a week to test a game related peripheral but that applies only when there aren`t really many games for us to play and so for example i usually mostly focus on Planetside 2 while the others play Metro Last Light and Fallout 3 along with all its expansions. This month however things are different since not only did i have time to finish Call Of Duty Ghosts, X-Com Enemy Within and Batman Origins but Im still playing Battlefield 4 and X: Rebirth (until the Alpha of Star Citizen/Squadron 42 by Chris Roberts gets available this is the best alternative) so Ive actually managed to use quite a few game peripherals. One of those is the latest Tunguska 7.1 Virtual Surround USB Gaming Headset by a rather new company called"

SilverStone Fortress FT04 Review @ Vortez
     Thu, Nov 28 2013 | 10:58A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Fortress FT04 looks very familiar indeed. Adopting the same chassis as Raven 4, this striking full-tower has some key advantages over its associate. SilverStone have furnished FT04 with premium aluminium front and top panels to deliver a luxury visual appearance and feel. Make no mistake, this case oozes style and finesse. SilverStone appear to have included almost every conceivable feature inside this exciting new case so it`s about time we begin our analysis."

HD 5870 vs HD 7970 - Should I upgrade? @ ocaholic
     Thu, Nov 28 2013 | 9:59A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The AMD Radeon HD 5870 is definitely still running in many gaming rigs and despite the fact that we are looking at a graphics card that is now three generations behind, it still holds its ground in many games, at least if you are not pushing UHD resolutions or ultra-high in game settings. Unfortunately, with latest batch of games, it definitely shows its age and when compared to the Radeon HD 7970, it becomes a rather unfair battle, making the HD 7970 a much better choice."

Intel Core i7-4770K vs 3770K vs 2600K Gaming-Performance @ ocaholic
     Thu, Nov 28 2013 | 4:53A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When scrolling through the comments regarding our CPU gaming performance articles, quite a few of you guys were asking if for once, we could compare not only two but three generations. Today we`re giving this a shot but it turned out that especially the conclusion was quite a bit tougher than when comparing two CPUs. Nevertheless we`re hoping this article is also going to be an interesting read. We believe that quite a few gamer out there might be interested in seeing Sandy Bridge, Ivy Bridge and Haswell quad core parts with hyper threading in a gaming performance article."

PC vs. PS4 vs. Xbox One Hardware Comparison: Building a Competing Gaming PC
     Thu, Nov 28 2013 | 4:21A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Each has their strengths and weaknesses, but the user/consumer needs to know their expectations for each platform. Education and hard work will reward those who build their own PCs, but not every bit of open source software will achieve the results that the tight integration of the Xbox One will offer casual users who are not interested in getting their hands dirty. The PC might not match the price/performance of the PS4 and the expectation is that Sony will improve the platform over the years with updates to more adequately match the Xbox in terms of media serving capabilities."

WD My Cloud EX4 8TB Personal Cloud Storage NAS Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Nov 28 2013 | 4:14A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Western Digital?s My Cloud network-attached storage devices are great for storing your data, but they are single-bay devices that can?t offer capacity benefits or mind assuring redundancy of having a RAID array for your data. Millions of people around the world have relied on single-bay or single-drive devices to backup their data. WD has noticed that there has been a major shift to multi-bay network attached storage (NAS) devices this year and market research shows that trend will continue in the years to come. WD realized that they did not offer any multi-bay NAS devices for the consumer market, so they decided to come up with one. WD?s announcement of the My Cloud EX4 today is the answer to this market shift and hopefully the continued growth of the WD brand."

ROCCAT Ryos MK Review @ Vortez
     Wed, Nov 27 2013 | 4:34P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Ryos MK range includes three different entrants at price points and with feature sets satisfying as many end-users as possible. Our review today focuses on the entry-level member - Ryos MK - which emphasises functionality over aesthetics to keep unwarranted costs down, but ROCCAT are keen to offer more to the discerning gamer higher up the market. The ROCCAT Ryos MK Glow will add LED illumination to the mix for a more rounded product at a commensurately higher price, whilst the Ryos MK Pro is the no-holds barred offering for the most demanding users. Each of these products also offer a choice of Cherry MX key switches, whilst for now the vanilla MK concentrates on performance with one type."

Posted by: STAFF
Today we are back with another AIO water cooling solution this time from Corsairs award-winning Hydro series. While Corsair has certainly been the king of the mountain for a while in the AIO market competitors have recently made some quite impressive challenges to the throne. The H80i promises high performance cooling and unparalleled control via its built-in Corsair Link controller in a package fitting the Corsair name. With integrated Corsair Link functionality and a push-pull fan configuration where will the H80i land on our charts? Read on to find out."

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.
