Acer Revo RL100-U20P Home Theater PC Review @MissingRemote
     Tue, May 01 2012 | 1:47A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Many home theater PC (HTPC) enthusiasts dream of a system that is as slim as other consumer electronic devices such as a dedicated Blu-ray player. It is also an expensive and difficult proposition for most; thus, when Acer introduced its newest Revo 100, many took notice. Not only is the Revo 100 only one inch high, it also has a unique slide-out keyboard/touchpad clearly designed as an input device for the ten-foot experience. With a sub-$600 retail price, the Aver Revo 100 which packs an AMD K325 CPU and NVIDIA ION GPU certainly deserves a closer look. *"

Intel DZ77GA-70K & Panther Point Chipset Preview @ LanOC Reviews
     Mon, Apr 30 2012 | 9:31P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel has officially announced their newest chipset for socket 1155, the Z77. With H61, H67, P67, and Z68 chipsets still on the market, it may seem bewildering that Intel would introduce yet another beast to the field. In addition, Z77 is one of six new chipsets introduced in Intel`s new 7 series chipset, Panther Point. What does the Panther have to offer that its predecessors did not? Though Intel may have just announced Z77, we`ve had our hands on sample boards for the past several weeks, putting them to the LanOC test, and we can finally share what we`ve found. We`ll start with Intel`s own Z77 board, the DZ77GA-70K as well as coverage of the Panther Point chipsets."

Frostytech tests the Noctua NH-L12 Low Profile Heatsink
     Mon, Apr 30 2012 | 4:32P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com
"The Noctua NH-L12 is a lower profile heatsink that stands 93mm tall and is a little over 130mm square. The heatsink comes with two fans; a 120mm NF-F12 PWM fan on top and a 92mm NF-B9 PWM fan tucked away beneath the fins. In a nod to being flexible, the top fan can be knocked off the NH-L12 to lower its height to 66mm for really compact computer cases if necessary. That's a far cry more compact than the typical 160mm tall tower heatsink!"

Thermaltake Smart M650w Review
     Mon, Apr 30 2012 | 4:30P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Power supply is a component that has become increasingly important in recent years as the wattage requirements for parts ramp up and customers become more aware of their system’s impact on the environment – and their wallet. Because of this many companies have begun producing PSUs, leading to a pretty convuluted marketplace, making it hard to decide which one to go for. While XSR doesn’t have the budget for a full power supply test run, we can do a couple of quick checks which will let you know whether you can put a unit on your maybe list, or strike it off altogether.

Asus Essentio CM6870 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Mon, Apr 30 2012 | 4:19P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Asus Essentio CM6870 is a great entry-level gaming desktop whose potent combination of a dual-core 3.4GHz Intel Core i7 processor and Nvidia GeForce GT 545 GPU packs plenty of Molotov into its cocktail while still maintaining affordability for those on a beer budget. Although it doesn`t come in a flashy package like high-end gaming desktops, its ability to nimbly outperform others in its class in multimedia-creation tasks makes it an able competitor."

AMD Versus Intel Integrated Graphics w/ Ivy Bridge @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Apr 30 2012 | 4:19P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As you can see from out test results today, Intel has managed to come really close to catching AMD in terms of integrated graphics performance. Intel Ivy Bridge processors with Intel HD 4000 graphics are able to compete with AMD`s Llano APU featuring the Radeon HD 6550D graphics engine. Intel was able to do this thanks to numerous architecture improvements, faster clock speeds and updates to their supported API`s..."

AMD A8-3870K Black Edition APU Review @ Madshrimps
     Mon, Apr 30 2012 | 4:18P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Black Edition A8-3870K APU from AMD is aimed at the mainstream market and offers enough performance for occasional gaming at lower resolutions, other multimedia activities or office work, this without the need to buy a dedicated video card. Thanks to the unlocked multiplier, overclocking becomes much easier than before and the performance gains after this operation are quite surprising."

AMD Trinity APU Preview: Evolution or Devolution?
     Mon, Apr 30 2012 | 11:53A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink

Intel Z77 Motherboard Round-up: Asrock, ECS, Gigabyte & Intel
     Mon, Apr 30 2012 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although Intel's die shrink of Sandy Bridge isn't due until next week (Monday, rumors say), the company has long shipped Ivy Bridge's accompanying chipsets. It might seem odd to jump the gun on "next-gen" motherboards, but 7-series platforms are backwards compatible with Sandy Bridge processors, so users have actually been able to buy a Z77 motherboard and use it for a few weeks without Ivy Bridge. After surveying Panther Point's spec sheet, we're itching to get a little more hands-on. Fortunately, we have four new Z77 motherboards in the shop and begging for attention, including the Asrock Z77 Extreme6, ECS Z77H2-AX, Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H-WB and Intel DZ77GA-70K.

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.
