NZXT Avatar S Gaming Mouse Review @ OCIA.net
     Thu, Nov 24 2011 | 3:29P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?Back in 2008 NZXT released their first gaming mouse, dubbed the Avatar. Other than driver updates to accommodate newer games and provide bug fixes, NZXT has seemed content to leave it at that. You might ask then how NZXT could improve upon the Avatar`s success enough to warrant a new product designation. Well you could start by replacing the 2600 DPI optical sensor with a 1600 DPI laser for better tracking on all surfaces. Then you eliminate two customizable buttons that the majority of users will probably never miss. Continue by reducing the switchable DPI selections from four down to three, throw in 16Kb of memory for storing of settings and profiles, and allow users to customize the LED lighting. Finally freshen up the aesthetics and slap an S model designation on it. Oh yeah, and cut the price almost in half.?"

OCZ Octane 512GB SSD Full Review - Indilinx Has Returned With Everest
     Thu, Nov 24 2011 | 3:11P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Indilinx Everest had a very good showing in OCZ`s Octane SSD. Sequential read and write performance was right at the top of the charts, and the new unit turned in some of the lowest latency and highest IOPS figures we`d seen from a SATA SSD to date, sticking it to Intel and SandForce in nearly all areas. Combine that high performance with some very low cost/GB figures and choosing the Octane almost becomes a no-brainer."

Intel Core i7 3930K (LGA 2011) CPU Review
     Thu, Nov 24 2011 | 3:06P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new Sandy Bridge-E platform from Intel really is a different kind of beast. When you throw it through those CPU intensive benchmarks, the performance of the new i7 3960X is amazing with performance at stock being better at times than when our 2600k is running at 5.2GHz. The issue with the 3960X isn`t the performance, though; it`s the price. At $1,049 US, there`s nothing cheap about the new 3960X and when you start to throw in a new X79 performance motherboard and a Quad Channel RAM kit, the price of a new Sandy Bridge-E system becomes really expensive. In steps the 3930K, 100MHz lower on both the Base and Turbo clocks and 3MB less Cache are only minor differences. Six cores and Twelve threads means that it lines up with the 3960X alongside the Quad Channel 1600MHz DDR3 RAM support and 130W TDP. There`s one big difference between the 3960X and the 3930K, though; the price. At $599 US the 3930K comes in at considerably less than the 3960X, and really, you can see we`ve otherwise got little difference between the two models."

Arctic MC001-BD Media Center @ techPowerUp
     Thu, Nov 24 2011 | 2:57P | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Arctic has been diversifying their product range greatly in recent years. While their foray into some things like toys or gaming consoles may be a bit too far fetched for some, the MC001-BD Media Center takes the company back to the roots. The Home Theater PC offers all the bells & whistles like Blu-Ray, USB 3.0, Intel Atom in combination with Radeon Mobility graphics and much, much more, while managing to cool the entire system passively. We take a look at the new, compact system along with a few accessories to see if it can take center stage and shine."

Antec 1100 Chassis Review
     Thu, Nov 24 2011 | 2:54P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Taking a look at the sides, I`m quite happy. Personally, I love chassis with large windows - I like to show off my running hardware, even when it isn`t all that impressive. On the Eleven Hundred, the window takes up over half the side panel in width and nearly the full size in height. It also includes two pre-drilled 120 mm fan spots for the addition of your own fans and aid cooling without hampering the view too much. The other panel behind the motherboard tray has a single 120 mm fan location for cooling from the back. This is perhaps one feature that most chassis still don`t provide today. It`s a simple addition and placing a fan here should bring your temps down even more."

X79 / Z68 / 990FX CrossFireX HD 6970 x3 Performance Analysis
     Thu, Nov 24 2011 | 2:52P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The bottom line all along has been that you`re not going to see any improvement in video card performance unless you`re hitting a CPU limitation. With how intensive games are these days, hitting a CPU limitation becomes harder and harder - even more so when you start to throw ultra-high resolutions into the mix. Today we`ll be looking at the performance of our X79 platform with the three Sapphire HD 6970s on hand. Because there`s not a lot more that needs to be said, we can really just get into the testbed side of things and cover that quickly before we get into the performance side then wrap everything up."

The last ASUS board we looked at was for AMD?s new Bulldozer platform, the Crosshair V Formula. It is currently their top of the line AMD board, but it isn?t top of the line like an ?Extreme? ASUS board. Today we?re looking at the Rampage IV Extreme, and let me tell you, top of the line may not be strong enough."

Posted by: STAFF
Rosewill continues on with the Blackhawk series of chassis, with the introduction of the Blackhawk Ultra Super Tower. The Blackhawk Ultra comes at a price point of $220 US and slides into what we consider the enthusiast segment of the market.

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
