Intel Core i7-3820 3.6GHz Processor Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Feb 09 2012 | 9:44A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel`s high-end LGA2011 platform has been out since November 2011 and since the platforms introduction there have only been two SNB-E processor choices available, the six-core Intel Core i7-3960X and Core i7-3930K. These hexa-core processors are costly as they run over $600 and that is more than most want to spend. All that changes this month with the introduction of the Intel Core i7-3820 that is priced at just $285. Read on to see how this processor performs!"

Asus DirectCU II Roundup: ENGTX560 ENGTX570 and ENGTX580 Review
     Thu, Feb 09 2012 | 9:39A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ENGTX580 is in a bit of a bind. When viewed by itself or against other GTX 580 cards, it really proves its worth once cooling and overclocking abilities are considered. It is on the same level as the MSI N580GTX Lightning, but it is a slightly larger card in that it takes up three slots as compared to two. It does not match the MSI N580GTX XE, which is a 3GB card, but it is also significantly cheaper (and actually available) as compared to that other high end card. Where it stumbles is when being compared against the brand new AMD HD 7970."

Antec P280 Super Mid Tower Case Review @ Bigbruin.com
     Thu, Feb 09 2012 | 9:21A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Antec`s newest chassis creation, the P280 Super Mid Tower Performance One Series Case, certainly doesn`t disappoint. What it doesn`t have in the bling category, like side windows and flashing lights, it more than makes up for in performance and quality. In many hours of testing over the last few weeks, it did what every silent case should do - it didn`t make a peep."

3D Monitor Shoot-Out: Acer HN274H and ViewSonic V3D245
     Thu, Feb 09 2012 | 9:03A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There's no question about it: 3D technology is HOT right now. Whether you're ready to hop on the bandwagon or just want to keep on top of what's out there, there are two new monitors that should be on your radar, the 27” Acer HN274H and 23.6” ViewSonic V3D245. Both of these 3D monitors feature embedded 3D emitters designed for NVIDIA's 3D Vision technology. They also share a number of similarities, but have some very obvious differences. Thanks to NVIDIA, Acer and ViewSonic, we were able to get our hands on both of these monitors so that we could give you a full hands-on look at what each one has to offer...

The Sequel We Always Wanted
     Thu, Feb 09 2012 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Eleven years ago, now-defunct developer Ion Storm released Deus Ex and made video game history. The original title cast players in the role of JC Denton, a nanotech-augmented agent with the United Nations Anti-Terrorist Coalition (UNATCO) circa 2052. The game's plot is a fusion of classic conspiracy theories and a referendum on what it means to be human. The problems of humanity in 2052—plague, environmental destruction, rampant terrorism—were far enough away in time to be comfortable, but close enough to be unsettling...

Asus Updates Eee Pad Transformer with Android 3.2, HH Fires It Up:
     Thu, Feb 09 2012 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If there's one thing a manufacturer like Asus understands, it's how to service their existing customer base with timely updates for things like firmware and drivers. With their lineage in motherboards, where BIOS updates can be critical for compatibility and performance, a company like Asus knows how to work closely with ecosystem partners in an effort to roll out product updates and enhancements quickly. And so it's no surprise they're one of the first manufacturers out of the gate with a drop of the latest Android Honeycomb OS version 3.2 for their darling 10.1-inch slate, the Eee Pad Transformer.

Hewlett Packard EliteBook 8560p Notebook Review:
     Thu, Feb 09 2012 | 9:00A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
HP emptied its entire bag of tricks on the EliteBook 8560p, the company's top-end business laptop that employs several features we wish other notebook vendors would adopt. HP tells HotHardware the 8560p is the result of lots of user feedback, sporting several subtle suggestions that combine to make this one of the most enjoyable non-gaming laptops we've ever played with. There are three pre-configured EliteBook 8560p models to choose from priced from $1,100 to $1,500. The one we have in-house is HP's $1,500 model with several pre-configured bells and whistles...

Fractal Design Core 1000 MicroATX HTPC Case @MissingRemote
     Wed, Feb 08 2012 | 4:01P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In our previous looks at Fractal Design (the Define R3 ATX chassis, the Define Mini Micro-ATX Chassis, and just recently the Core 3000) cases they have demonstrated a favor for solid, stylish chassis that consistently deliver without the flashing lights and other bling often found on other enclosures that offer the same space and flexibility. As we have seen, there are many different options offered by Fractal Design. The Fractal Design Core 1000 is the flavor of today?s review. The Core series brings together a combination of design, features, cooling performance, and value. Is this going to be your next HTPC case? The Fractal Design Core 1000 uses the micro ATX chassis very effectively with multiple cooling options. You have a case that give you maximum flow of air but keeps the size small to put beside your TV for a sleek and stylish look. *"

GIGABYTE GA-X79-UD7 Motherboard Review @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Feb 08 2012 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The GIGABYTE GA-X79-UD7 is built for those looking to push the envelope with the latest technology. The GIGABYTE X79-UD9 uses Intel`s second generation Core i7 processors in the LGA2011 package. The GIGABYTE GA-X79-UD7 isn`t priced for those looking to cut corners or save a few bucks, it steps up to the plate with a price tag of $369.99 plus shipping. It`s not the most expensive Intel X79 motherboard out there, nevertheless it isn`t for the faint of heart..."

MacBook Pro Solid State Drive Upgrade Guide and Performance Testing @ circuitREMIX
     Wed, Feb 08 2012 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In our past Solid State Drive Roundup, we found that the performance offered by SSDs is nothing short of phenominal. Apple, a company that prides itself in its focus of customer experience knows this, and as a result offers the availability of SSDs across it`s Mac computing product line. However when looking at its MacBook Pro line, the cost of configuring an Apple built-to-order SSD powered notebook is steep. Apple offers 128GB, 256GB and 512GB SSD storage upgrades at the prices of $200, $600 and $1200 respectively (as per the Apple Store in Canada). But the cost of getting an SSD in your MacBook Pro (or any other Mac) doesn`t have to be so high. This article is split up into two sections: the first showing you how easy it is to upgrade your hard drive based Mac to an SSD, and the second helping you pick which SSD to buy. The drives that will be compared are Crucial`s m4, Kingston`s HyperX, OCZ`s Vertex 3 and OWC`s Mercury Electra 6G. They will also be compared to Apple`s 5400rpm and 7200rpm hard drives."

Meet Intels Cherryville: 520 Series 240GB SSD Review @ Techgage
     Wed, Feb 08 2012 | 3:17P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SandForce is back in town and it`s here to stay. Intel`s 520 Series is a full replacement for the 510 Series, but utilize the SF-2281 controller and custom Intel firmware to deliver one of the best SSDs we seen to date. If you already want an Intel SSD but don`t know which to get, we can answer that. Oh, and did we mention the 5 year warranty?"

NZXT Switch 810 Case Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Wed, Feb 08 2012 | 3:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NZXT`s Switch 810 is one of the few cases on the market that can be considered truly unique. While its piano black finish looks great, what makes the 810 stand out from the pack lies behind its facade and for a price of under $175, this may be one of the best bang for buck enclosures around. "

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.
