How To Get More Graphics Performance From The Intel NUC @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Feb 27 2014 | 8:33A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There is a fine line that all manufacturers must be watch when it comes to having the right balance between energy-efficiency and performance. Intel?s motherboards have always been conservative when it comes to overclocking or pushing a system beyond its originally designed plans. We recently ran across a BIOS setting on the Intel NUC that allows you to unlock the graphics performance of this platform. It isn?t every day that you find a BIOS setting that allows you to boost performance by over 30% and it got us excited and wanted to share it with out readers. "

PowerColor PCS+ R9 270X @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, Feb 27 2014 | 8:31A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the past few years, there is one video card company that had really caught my eye with a couple unique products. PowerColor introduced the Devil 12 and has followed up with various Devil cards that have been really sharp. Its always exciting to see a video card manufacture really step up. When PowerColor offered to send over their new R9 270X I jumped at the chance, excited to see what their PCS+ cooling is all about."

Banished @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Feb 26 2014 | 9:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Full disclosure, I typically loath doing game reviews. Testing hardware typically can be done along side of me working on something else, for example I can test the comfort of a headset while benchmarking a video card, while also writing when tests are running. Games on the other hand require days and sometimes weeks of gameplay for testing. I know some of you might think I`m crazy, because playing games and getting to call it work sounds amazing. But when we have to publish multiple articles a week, it`s just impossible. That being said, a new game called Banished launched just a few days ago and has so far had been extremely popular on steam (it is as I write this the top selling game over a half priced Call of Duty: Ghosts and a whole bunch of games that are 75% off from Ubisoft) and Reddit. I have been playing it non-stop and a lot of people hit me up on Facebook and on steam asking for my thoughts on the game. Why not put it all together for everyone to see!"

Cooler Master ROC Tablet & Notebook Stand Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Wed, Feb 26 2014 | 9:01P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Rocks. Chances are everyone has thrown a rock at least once. When I think of a rock, the adjectives, strong, stable, and heavy, come to mind. Cooler Masters ROC is no different, and it is highly likely that the name ROC is inspired by real rocks. While ROC is strong, stable and heavy, it is not something you throw. ROC is a stand for Apples highly stylized MacBook Pro and iPad devices."

Vantec IDE/SATA and NexStar eSATA to USB 3.0 Adapters Review @HiTech Legion
     Wed, Feb 26 2014 | 4:20P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Vantec has offered some help: their IDE/SATA to USB 3.0 Adatper and its sibling the NexStar eSATA to USB 3.0 adapter. The IDE/SATA adapter will connect to any standard hard drive that uses an IDE(PATA) interface of either the 3.5 or 2.5 laptop variant and also with any SATA drive supporting speeds up to SATA III. It also has a power adapter for getting juice to the drives. Its sibling, the NexStar eSATA to USB 3.0 adapter, does just that. It lets you connect an eSATA drive again with speeds up to SATA III, via USB 3.0."

Raidmax Cobra Mid-Tower Case Review
     Wed, Feb 26 2014 | 3:39P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Raidmax Cobra comes in a variety of different colors: Black, Red, Blue, White, and Titanium. We will be looking at the black one for this review. The Raidmax Cobra Black Steel Mid-Tower ATX Case will fit the bill of many consumers on a tight budget. Without spending a whole lot of money, the Raidmax Cobra offers many features that only some of the bigger and more expensive cases have. It provides tool-less drive bays, adequate space for cable management thanks to its wide body design, and four internal 2.5? drive bays for laptop hard drives and even SSD?s, which is crazy for a case in this price range. The Raidmax Cobra also provides great airflow for high performance air cooling along with the option for a custom water cooling system. Thanks to two water cooling retention holes at the back of the case, a custom water cooling system can be installed into this case. With so many high-end features, this makes the Raidmax Cobra a very c! ompetitive case due to its aggressive pricing."

Bitfenix Phenon Mini-ITX case Review! @ Bjorn3D
     Wed, Feb 26 2014 | 9:07A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the more dominant trends over the last year or so when it comes to computer cases is that more and more companies bring out small computer cases meant for mini-ITX motherboards that still can handle more powerful components. No longer do we have to settle with on-board graphics and a slow CPU. No, these computer cases are meant to work well even for the serious gamer. The case we are reviewing today is a perfect example of that: the Bitfenix Phenom Mini-ITX case. This case is available in both mini-ITX and micro-ATX format although they actually share the same dimensions on the outside. On the inside the Phenom mini-ITX-case shares a lot of similarities with another of Bitfenix small cases, the Prodigy. One proof that this case should be able to house some serious hardware is that for example Webhallen.com used it for their Steam-machine on CES 2014. Read on to learn what makes us really like this case. "
