PowerColor HD 6970 Devil 13 2 GB @ techPowerUp
     Thu, Nov 24 2011 | 4:05A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
PowerColor`s HD 6970 Devil 13 is a brand-new premium class Radeon HD 6970 which comes with the highest clocks available on any HD 6970 card. The Devil 13 also includes voltage monitoring points for voltmodders and a high quality power conversion system. But is that enough to justify a price of $549?"

Patriot Torqx 2 128GB SATA II SSD Review @Hi Tech Legion
     Wed, Nov 23 2011 | 11:18P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Well known and respected memory manufacturer Patriot has released a new generation to their SSD lineup with the Torqx 2 128GB SSD front and center. The Patriot Torqx 2 128GB SSD follows the traditional 2.5 form factor, but bucks tradition in many other ways going straight for the cutting edge while keeping pricing in the mainstream. 128GB is often considered the price/size sweet spot for SSD drives, allowing ample room for OS and applications which will take advantage of the speed of the drive."

Posted by: STAFF
The CM Storm Trooper aims to take the gaming crowd by storm and position itself as the elite chassis for LAN Party goers, as it offers a long list of unique and useful features. We take the chassis hostage and stuff it full of hardware to see if it buckles or manages to strike back like a trooper."

Icy Dock MB882HX-1SB SATA II SSD Xpander Hybrid Adapter Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Wed, Nov 23 2011 | 7:31P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Icy Dock MB882HX-1SB 2.5? SATA SSD Xpander Hybrid Adapter can bring new life to your previous generation SSDs. The MB882HX-1SB 2.5? SATA SSD Xpander Hybrid Adapter can double the sequential transfer rate of the HDD in the hybrid partition when paired with a moderate or 2nd generation 2.5? SSD. Once installed, the MB882HX-1SB Xpander Hybrid automatically creates two partitions: an SSD Hybrid partition equal to twice the size of the SSD inside the adapter and a useable storage partition equal to the size of the HDD minus the SSD Hybrid partition. The MB882HX-1SB Xpander Hybrid works with any 2.5? SSD drive but for optimal performance, a 2nd generation or older SATA II SSD with a transfer rate of around 250MB/s paired with a 7200rpm HDD should be used."

Thermaltake Level 10 GT @ techPowerUp
     Wed, Nov 23 2011 | 6:21P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Thermaltake`s initial release of the Level 10 was co-designed with luxury car manufacturer BMW. The second iteration is a boiled down and condensed version that maximizes all the enthusiast wants while reducing the price considerably. The Level 10 GT just might be the best gaming case on the market."

OCZ Vertex 3 2.5 SSD
     Wed, Nov 23 2011 | 5:57P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Meet the Vertex 3. The Vertex 3 is OCZ`s latest release in the Vertex lineup. The Vertex 3 almost doubles the performance of the Vertex 2 in every way; read performance, write performance and maximum IOPS. I have a Vertex 3 on the test bench today and can`t wait to put it head-to-head with the Vertex 2 and see how well those numbers stack up in terms of real-world performance (after all, that`s what we really want from a drive, right?)."

Seasonic Platinum-1000 1000 W @ techPowerUp
     Wed, Nov 23 2011 | 1:29P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Seasonic entered the Platinum party late since they wanted to make a big and well planned entrance. After many rumors, spy photos and lots of unconfirmed data Seasonic`s Platinum series is finally released and is ready to fight for the crown. The stronger of the two fresh units, the Platinum-1000W, will be the test subject of today`s review."

NZXT Sentry Mesh Fan Controller @ TechwareLabs
     Wed, Nov 23 2011 | 12:01P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NZXT`s newest fan controller eschews touchscreens, blinking lights, and complexity for five sliders - linear potentiometers. Both elegant and simple, the Sentry Mesh fits in without standing out - especially on the many cases with steel mesh front panels."

SilverStone Strider Gold 750W Power Supply Review at Overclockers Online
     Wed, Nov 23 2011 | 10:18A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Strider Gold 750W does have a quite a bit of good points going for it and a few excellent ones, namely: efficiency and some pretty decent line regulation on the 12V rail (which reasonably, we care quite a bit more for than the 5V rail). The unit is also built extraordinarily well, inside and out. Still, while we can hardly discount the fact that the Strider Gold 750W is priced just a wee bit higher than it should, that decision is for the individual and despite priced a tad higher than other units, the Strider Gold is still a solid power supply."

The new P280 from Antec is a mid-tower case (or super mid-tower, as the manufacturer calls it) with nine expansion slots, allowing you to install XL-ATX motherboards and four dual-slot video cards. It is part of the Antec Performance One series, which brings several features to reduce the noise produced by the PC.

Silverstone Precision PS06 @ techPowerUp
     Wed, Nov 23 2011 | 8:36A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Stuffed with some cool features, like the hot-swap bay in the front, or the Air Penetrator fan in the top, the Precision PS06 offers many aspects while staying under that oh so important 100 USD barrier. We take the spacey looking chassis for a spin and test the usability of its long list of features."

Sandy Bridge-E now expected to launch in November X79 chipset getting further feature cuts
     Wed, Nov 23 2011 | 7:11A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We don`t like to be the bringers of bad news, but it`s come to our attention that Intel has decided to change its high-end consumer Waimea Bay platform one more time before it launches. The only good news is that we`ve managed to pin-point which month the platform is expected to launch and that is November and there are several reasons behind this choice."

NZXT HALE82-850-M 850 W @ techPowerUp
     Wed, Nov 23 2011 | 3:44A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Till now NZXT had only one PSU series, HALE90, which included only Gold efficiency PSUs. However since Gold efficiency leads to higher prices, NZXT decided to release a new line of PSUs with lower efficiency and more affordable prices, targeting a wider range of users. The name of the new series is HALE82 and all of its members are 80 PLUS Bronze certified and feature a semi modular cabling design."

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.
