NVIDIA Geforce GTX 690 DirectX 11 Video Card Review @Hi Tech Legion
     Thu, May 03 2012 | 8:59A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the last few years there have been many contenders, unfortunately none has had the absolute prowess to take the crown. They all battled well in the trenches but after the battle was said and done at best it was a split decision. Other than price performance, the contenders lacked power efficiency, had issues with increased fan noise and ran much warmer than their baby brothers. A new contender has come forward with the promise of not only being the most powerful but the most efficient. This contender is the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 690./"

CM Storm Trigger Keyboard Review
     Thu, May 03 2012 | 8:11A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall I`m quite impressed with the CM Trigger mechanical keyboard. I will be honest and say I couldn`t really handle the clickly clacky noise after a week and promptly bought some O-rings to quiet it down. This is something any of you who can`t stand the noise can do to reduce that while still getting the great feel of a mechanical keyboard. With or without the O-rings the keyboard is still worth getting your hands on. The price is a little high, but it is something I would fork the change over to have."

Indilinx Everest 2 SSD Controller Platform Overview
     Thu, May 03 2012 | 7:28A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we`re going to walk you through what we know about the new controller, what we don`t know about the controller and touch on some OCZ distributed benchmarks. A full review of the new OCZ Vertex 4 256GB and 512GB SSDs (which use this very controller) will make it to the site at the same time as this article is published. Indilinx`s first Everest platform came and went without too much fuss. OCZ debuted Indilinx`s first SATA 6Gbps controller on the Octane series of products, but Everest didn`t quite make it in the world of high-performance SSDs currently dominated by low-cost Team SandForce products. OCZ instead used Octane as a building block and to fill a small gap that existed between Agility 3 with asynchronous flash and Vertex 3 with synchronous flash."

SSD NEWS: Plextor M3P 256GB SATA 3 SSD Review - Absolutely Marvell-ous Performance
     Wed, May 02 2012 | 11:40P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are going to be reporting on the Plextor M3P 256GB SATA 3 SSD. Pairing Marvell`s venerable 88SS9174 controller with the latest Toshiba 24nm Toggle Mode NAND, the Pro is not much different from the Plextor M3 SSD that we reviewed a short time ago. Aside from the new thinner 7mm chassis, the only difference you`ll find between the regular M3 Standard and the M3 Pro is the custom Plextor firmware being employed. That might just be enough to put it over the top."

Thermaltake Element Q Small Form Factor Chassis @ TechwareLabs
     Wed, May 02 2012 | 3:29P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Small form factor PC`s can often be a fun endeavour but they can also be an essential part of a network. Their leading applications include HTPCs and wordprocessors/internet browsers but the limitations only exist with software. Some Mini-ITX cases come with all the bells and whistles and start at a small fortune. But what if you`re looking for a chassis without breaking the bank? Here to hold that position in the market is the Thermaltake Element Q Small Form Factor Chassis. Lets take a look at how Thermaltake advertises this case:"

SSD NEWS: Intel 910 400/800GB PCIe SSD Quick Preview - On The Bench and Pushing Out 1.9GB/s Performance
     Wed, May 02 2012 | 3:29P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel 910 PCIe SSD is finally in our hands and we thought we might offer a quick glimpse before our full report next week. To add to that glimpse, we thought we might also tease our readers with a few preliminary benchmarks as well. Make no mistake though as this is not a consumer item and is intended for datacenters. We thought our fellow enthusiasts might enjoy a quick look into the high performance datacenter realm. Enjoy!"

Samsung Green DDR3L 1600 2x4GB Review
     Wed, May 02 2012 | 3:29P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Another big pro for me, which should have been stated a 100 times over already, is the fact that it is low profile. A lot of CPU coolers on the market today are seemingly increasing in size. I know my Noctua NH-U12P cooler has to lift a fan to accommodate my Redline kit. Fortunately my cooler allows for this; however, if you have physical fins on the overhang there isn`t much you can do about it -- other than buy some low profile RAM. If you have a beast of a cooler, or want to get that beast of a cooler, now you can. Just throw this low profile RAM in there and clearance won`t be your problem anymore. For the great price, nice overclocking capabilities and advantages of being low profile and low voltage -- this might be something well worth your time."

Zalman CNPS10X Optima Heatsink Review
     Wed, May 02 2012 | 3:01P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com
"Zalman's CNPS10X Optima heatsink is a fairly standard tower cooler in most respects; it offers pretty good thermal performance, accomodates a front and rear fan and has an exposed copper heatpipe base. The CNPS10X Optima CPU cooler stands 153mm tall so it should fit into most mid tower chassis and weighs in at moderate 630 grams. The CNPS10X Optima's raw aluminum fins are punctuated by the four copper heatpipes which intersect the fins in the region receiving the highest airflow from the fan. Like many tower heatsinks, Zalman have conspicuously staggered the heatpipes where they intersect the cooling fins to ensure heat conduction is over a broader area of fin."

The Gateway NV57H54u is a 15.6-inch powerhouse laptop that offers great performance, a comfortable keyboard and long battery life all without a high price. It does suffer from a mildly dim display and some touchpad issues, but other than that, it`s a solid buy."

GTX680 Quad SLI vs HD7970 Quad CrossfireX Review @ Vortez
     Wed, May 02 2012 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Like most enthusiasts, especially those that either bench or game at the high end, what we all want to know is `who is best`? In years gone by it was a simple affair of pitching one card against another however with multiple GPU setups now common place there is more to evaluating a graphics cards performance. No longer is it mano-a-mano, 1 vs. 1 because to truly examine the performance of a high end graphics card you also have to look at how it performs when in tandem with another. SLI and CrossfireX are critically important when faced with the decision of what to buy because it`s all very well buying the fastest single card, if it scales poorly in multi-GPU configuration you could be disappointed if you wish to expand on your GPU setup."

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.
