AMD Radeon HD 7870 2GB Reference Video Cards in CrossFire
     Wed, Mar 07 2012 | 1:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Already really impressed with what the new HD 7800 series can offer, it`s time to throw a second HD 7870 into the mix and see what kind of performance this $700 CrossFire setup brings to that table. If previous HD 7000 series cards are anything to go by, though, we should get some great performance with impressive scaling. If you haven`t looked at our individual reviews of the new HD 7800 series cards I highly recommend you head on over and check out our thoughts on the new $249 HD 7850 and more expensive $349 HD 7870."

Android App Pick - TuneIn Radio Pro - BCCHardware
     Wed, Mar 07 2012 | 1:03P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have just posted up our 22th App Pick of the Week and this time we get our groove on with TuneIn Radio Pro.  If you missed the $0.10 App Week, this app will set you back $0.99, but it`s totally worth it.  The Pro version adds a bunch of great features including rewinding, recording, pausing and more.  Check it out and if you can`t afford the Pro version, there is an ad-based version available as well - with less features."

A Futurelooks News Flash - GIGABYTE Motherboards ? Reviewing Beyond the Hardware Experience

Posted by: STAFF
a post to your own news section would totally be appreciated. If we`re sending our news to the wrong place, we apologize. Just send us a message with the correct address to the address below. Don`t forget that,Futurelooks reviews the things that we normally toss in a hardware review and we`re sort of glad we did! * * *GIGABYTE Motherboards ? Reviewing Beyond the Hardware Experience* * * As reviewers, we?re all guilty of grabbing the new hardware, tossing the box and contents aside, and heading straight for the benchmarking machine. This often leaves us completely oblivious to the effort put into things like packaging, manuals, software, and the extras that create the overall user experience of that product. While this may not be as important for benchmarkers or for very experienced users, this may make or break the experience for everyone else. Especially people new to building their own machines or who aren?t familiar with a particular product or brand. *"

AMD Radeon HD 7850 and 7870 review
     Wed, Mar 07 2012 | 9:43A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the AMD Radeon HD 7850 and 7870. These two new mid-range cards are going to shift the dynamics in the graphics arena alright, as the entire package including performance is very impressive for the 7800 series. A product series that is to replace the 6800-series performance-wise, it is based on AMD`s 28nm process and of course the latest Graphics Core Next GPU architecture. AMD is going to fill the 250 to 250 USD segment with two products perfectly capable of battling with the GeForce GTX 570 and GTX 580. Read our review right here"

RunCore Pro V Max 240GB SSD Review @ circuitREMIX
     Mon, Mar 05 2012 | 5:14P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we`ll be looking at a drive from RunCore`s brand new flag ship series, Pro V Max, which is replacing the Pro V series as RunCore`s fastest consumer level drives. The main point of evolution between the original Pro V and the Max is referred to as a Golden Firmware. Comparing the specifications of the two drives, the two differing details surround the read speeds of the drives. The Max increases the maximum read speed by 10MB/s to 560MB/s, and 4K IOPS read from 40000 to 50000. We`ll see if this Golden Firmware is as good as its name implies."

Arctic Cooling Alpine 64 Plus Heatsink Review
     Mon, Mar 05 2012 | 4:30P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

With the release of AMD's socket FM1 Fusion A8-3850 processors late last year there's been a growing need for inexpensive yet relatively quiet CPU coolers of moderate power. The 'Llano' processor only has a 100W TDP and costs just over $120 bucks, so expensive tower heatpipe coolers can be a little bit of an overkill. Arctic Cooling's Alpine 64 Plus heatsink is one economical option to consider; it's rated for 100W and stands 70mm tall so it fits in most media PC cases with ease.

[DreamWare Computers] Silverstone FP58 5.25 SSD/Slim ODD Bay Mount
     Mon, Mar 05 2012 | 4:10P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Silverstone has released a fair number of products over the last year aimed at the SSD market - many of which are two-in-one bay components which hold one or more SSD`s in addition to their primary function. Recently putting another one of these accessories on the market, Silverstone has released the FP58. The FP58 will hold one slot-loading slim optical drive and four SSD`s in a single 5.25 drive bay. An accessory like this makes it easy to expand on the number of SSD`s (or 2.5 drives) in your system without needing to find creative places to put them all (most new cases still only have one or two SSD mounts)."

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.
