Streacom FC8 Evo Fanless Chassis Review
     Sun, Jun 23 2013 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The FC8 Evo case from Streacom has a very clean, professional look and is ideal for people which want absolute silence when working at their PC. The installation instructions are explained with both photos and text and if we are patient, there should be no issues. Also, there are plenty of additional accessories that can be bought from them like the slot-loading optical drive, USB 3.0 cable or IR sensor + remote.

Sony NWZ-W273 review: waterproof Walkman
     Sun, Jun 23 2013 | 9:02A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sony can pride itself on being the inventor of portable audio devices, and it's still active in this segment. The NWZ-W273 is a Walkman designed for active people, and we tested it for a period while jogging. Not to get too much ahead of ourselves, but we're quite positive about Sony's latest compact and waterproof music player.

ASUSTOR AS-604T NAS Network Storage Server @ Benchmark Reviews
     Sun, Jun 23 2013 | 9:01A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Everybody needs a NAS, I`m convinced. Maybe if I described what the modern NAS has become - a Private Cloud, then everyone would agree. Years ago, when Benchmark Reviews started reviewing NAS servers, they were made to sit on your network as a sort of file server and you used proprietary, vendor supplied backup software. Today, as we all know, everything is wide open. Access anything, anywhere, with any application is not just a dream anymore. Hardware is still important, but the depth and breadth of the software is becoming more of a differentiator. The ASUSTOR AS-604T NAS Network Storage Server uses a familiar hardware platform - Intel Atom and a Linux distro, but the design team didn`t stop there. There are some fundamental improvements that were ready to be solved from a slightly different perspective. Join in, as we see how this new 4-bay device compares to its competitors."

Be Quiet! Dark Power Pro 10 850W Power Supply Review
     Sun, Jun 23 2013 | 9:01A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Be Quiet! has taken an already great power supply in the form of a Seasonic X-series unit, and made it even better. The enhancements made to the Dark Power Pro 10 850W power supply translates to legendary silence and cutting edge performance; just like Be Quiet! claims. The custom designed SilentWings fan is virtually silent at low to mid power levels. Voltage regulation is excellent, efficiency is excellent, the DC outputs are very clean, and the Dark Power Pro 10 850W PSU comes with an excellent assortment of modular cables and connectors. Add to that the ability to select either single or multi +12V rail operation, the ability to automatically control up to four case fans, Haswell CPU deep sleep state support, and rubberized end caps for noise and vibration isolation and you have a very interesting and competent new power supply."

BlackBerry Z10 @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Jun 23 2013 | 9:01A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Blackberry has a special place in my heart; my first smartphone was the original BlackBerry Storm. The Storm was their first full touch screen phone and frankly it was also a very hard phone to love. Being my first smartphone I really wanted to love it, but dealing with lockups, limitations, battery pulls, and bad battery life was just life with the Storm. After experiencing Android I never went back to BlackBerry, until they introduced their Z10. For the first time it seemed like BlackBerry had listed, so I made sure to get one in and today finally I will tell you how it went."

Diamond Radeon HD 7790
     Sun, Jun 23 2013 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Diamond Radeon 7790 comes with a shorter PCB design, custom cooler and a strong factory overclock that reaches well over 1GHz. What’s particularly enticing is this Diamond card also qualifies for the popular AMD promotional offer that tosses in three A+ gaming titles into the package for some outstanding bonus value. Looks like a great deal, so let’s take a closer look at the Diamond Radeon HD 7790 and see how it fares.”

Jabra SPEAK 510 Bluetooth And USB Speakerphone
     Sun, Jun 23 2013 | 7:50A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
How many times have you used Skype (or any video chat program for that matter) to communicate with your friends, distant relatives or immediate family only to find out that you can`t really rely on the built-in camera microphone to have a clear conversation with them? Things are even worse when we are talking about laptops since both the built-in microphone and speakers are average at best. The same of course happens quite often with VoIP calls and although most consumers are quite happy with what basic hardware offers at seemingly no extra cost the same does not apply for everyone out there especially people who also use the above for work purposes. Well to cover that segment of the market Jabra recently launched the SPEAK 510 Bluetooth and USB speakerphone so naturally we couldn`t just sit back and not get our hands on it."

Gigabyte GTX 650Ti BOOST 2GB OC Video Card @ HiTech Legion
     Sun, Jun 23 2013 | 3:56A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Gigabyte GTX 650 Ti Boost is a complete re-invention and re-build of what is already a proven performance platform. Using the GK106 based GTX 650 Ti Boost, Gigabyte took the rest into their shop, coming out with an all new PCB and Windforce 2X cooler to ensure that every aspect of the platform is done right. The enhanced Ultra Durable 2 PCB features a good rigid base, with low RDS MOSFETS, ferrite core chokes and solid Japanese capacitors delivering clean power, all while upping durability and longevity. A four heatpipe design Windforce cooler with two slim, silent fans keeps the GTX 650 Ti running cool with incredibly low noise. To boost performance, the Gigabyte GTX 650 Ti Boost receives a factory OC to 1032MHz with Boost set to 1098MHz, and 2GB of GDDR5 is clocked to 6008MHz. To help reel in the potential of the 650 Ti Boost, Gigabyte`s OC Genie II can tweak and monitor clock speeds, voltages and fan curves to get the most from your 650 Ti Boost. In addition, OC Genie II will check for driver and BIOS updates and can perform the updates directly through its interface.///"

News: AMD reveals base clock power rating for 5GHz CPU
     Sun, Jun 23 2013 | 3:52A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
On Tuesday, AMD introduced its new FX-9000-series processors. The company quoted their peak Turbo speeds (5GHz for the FX-9590, 4.7GHz for the FX-9370) and a rough time frame for availability (this summer), but it revealed little else. We were left wondering about base clocks, power envelopes, and potential retail availability. Well, today, AMD has finally answered our questions."
