[Tech ARP] BIOS Option Of The Week - DRAM Burst Length 8QW
     Sat, Dec 08 2012 | 9:59A | BIOS | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meager beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition. Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend. This week, we will be taking a look at the *DRAM Burst Length 8QW* setting."

Corsair Dominator Platinum 4x4 2133mhz @ Techreaction.net
     Fri, Dec 07 2012 | 10:11P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to memory performance Corsair has always been fond of having the most coveted sticks available. Given the name Dominator the popular Dominator GT sticks were highly prized among overclocking enthusiasts not only for their excellent stock timings, performance and appearance, but for their head room should the user wish to get dirty and push the sticks to new heights. Corsair screens the ICs for optimal performance and overclocking before they get added to the Dominator lineup according to their website. That promise of overclocking headroom comes with a heavy but effective heat spreader cooling system. Dubbed DHX for Direct Heat Exchange, it uses conductive and convective cooling technologies not only to provide the ICs with a sustainable operating temperature, but also the PCB, something most companies do not address."

A Futurelooks News Flash - My Ultrabook Buying Experience Taking the Road Less Travelled
     Fri, Dec 07 2012 | 6:59P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Were doing something a little bit different today. Instead of doing a more conventional review of my recently purchased ultrabook, I thought it might be worthwhile to describe my buying experience and my journey to make that decision. The laptop that I ultimately chose is a little off the beaten path and Im glad I took the road less travelled, but Im hoping that this rough shopping guide might aid in your future PC-buying adventures too. *"

Cutting the Cord Part 3: Building your HTPC - OS Install and Tuning
     Fri, Dec 07 2012 | 1:22P | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As I mentioned before, I originally was planning to do this build with Windows 8 Professional and the Windows 8 Media Center pack, but theres a few things that Microsoft has removed from Media Center in the new version that make using it for a Media Center a non-starter in my opinion. Not being able to boot directly into Media Center and having to boot into Metro and then launch Media Center is a deal breaker for me so I fell back to whats been working great for me these past few years, Windows 7 Home Premium."

Corsair AX760 Power Supply Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Fri, Dec 07 2012 | 12:55P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Recently, Corsair added four new models to its AX power supply series: AX760, AX860, AX760i, and AX860i. The i models use a digital signal processor (DSP) and are the most unique PC power supplies ever released. We`ve already reviewed the AX760i, which proved to be the best power supply we`ve ever reviewed. Now it is time for us to take a look at the version of this power supply that doesn`t use a digital signal processor. Let`s check it out."

Thermaltake Level 10 Mouse @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Dec 07 2012 | 12:34P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Every time that I think they have done everything to a mouse, someone surprises me with something completely different or off the wall. Last year when we took a tour of Thermaltakes US offices, they hinted that we would see a new exciting mouse that was a collaboration with BMW DesignworksUSA, much like the Level 10 case. A little over a year later, here I am finally getting a chance to take a look at that mouse, the Thermaltake Level 10 M. Being nothing like other mice that we have taken a look at, Im not sure what to expect from the Level 10 M or its Avago ADNS-9800 sensor."

ADATA Premier Pro SP600 128GB SSD Review - BCCHardware
     Fri, Dec 07 2012 | 12:21P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Value is the big question. The overall price of the drive is not bad all by itself, but the performance for the price is a little bit lacking - at the MSRP. When you consider the software bundle, it makes it a tough call. Not everyone will need or even use the software, so for many people this value isn`t recognized. If you need software though, this becomes a great deal. With the price of the software listing around $40 - and with the drive hitting shelves for $80-$90 on a promotional price, you actually are paying $40-$50 for the drive itself. . ."

Club 3D HD 7870 jokerCard Tahiti LE 2 GB @ techPowerUp
     Fri, Dec 07 2012 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Club3D is first to release a Tahiti LE based HD 7870. Their jokerCard runs 1536 shaders with very decent clock speeds, which results in an 8% performance improvement over HD 7870, just 2% shy of matching HD 7950. This performance increase does come at the cost of increased power draw though."

Samsung Flip Cover for Galaxy S III and Note II Review @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Dec 07 2012 | 10:58A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After you use the Samsung Flip Covers for several days you quickly used to them and flipping the cover open, so it wasn`t annoying or a major nuisance. The best part about the Samsung Flip Covers is that you do not have to worry about scratches when you slip the phone into your pocket and it adds very little thickness to the phone. The worst part of the covers is that it does pretty much nothing in terms of drop protection..."

Silicon Power Armor A80 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive Review
     Fri, Dec 07 2012 | 10:27A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
VDSL (Very-high-bit-rate digital subscriber line) finally landed where i live and although it will take quite some time before we can all enjoy the amazing speeds it offers (although we still don`t know what the end result will be) such speeds are bound to change things especially in everything related to storage media. We are well aware that VDSL is nothing new in several parts of the world but the majority of people hardly have DSL lines currently so you can imagine how rapidly things will change when everyone on the face of the planet jumps from regular DSL 24Mbit/s speeds to the 50-100Mbit/s offered by VDSL and VDSL2. This is also one of the reasons as to why we`ve focused in testing portable hard disk drives lately (we need to be ready for the change) and today we have yet another one, the Armor A80 1TB 2.5 USB 3.0 PHD from Silicon Power."

SilverStone SUGO SST-SG09 MicroATX Chassis @ Benchmark Reviews
     Thu, Dec 06 2012 | 11:48P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As more enthusiasts discover that they really don`t need seven or eight slots in a standard ATX motherboard, the popularity of Micro ATX and Mini ITX rigs is exploding. Formerly constrained to HTPC or light home server duty, small form factor systems are now becoming the province of enthusiasts, aided by motherboards and cases designed to support the power and air flow required to house the higher-end components such systems require. The latest performance-oriented Micro ATX case is Silverstone`s new SUGO SG09B, and since it`s from Silverstone, you might expect that it has some unique design features. You`d be right."

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.
