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)."

The Samsung ST96 is a great compact camera that sports an impressive 14.5-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor, and it can also capture extremely high-quality full HD images and videos. With online retailers selling the ST96 for as little as £130, this could be the perfect camera for those of you on a budget. Let`s take a closer look... **"

Patriot Pyro SE 120GB Solid State Drive Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, Mar 05 2012 | 4:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Patriot started to release their SATA 6GB/s solid state drives they started with 2 drives. The Wildfire that was more on the high-end with Toshiba toggle memory and the Pyro which was the more consumer-focused drive that used asynchronous flash memory. Now Patriot has the Pyro SE, which will be using Micron 25nm synchronous memory. Using synchronous memory we should see better performance when it comes to incompressible data. Today we will be taking the 120GB version through the paces, read on to see how the drive performs."

     Mon, Mar 05 2012 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink

MSI Z77A-GD65 Ivy Bridge Motherboard Review @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Mar 05 2012 | 3:59P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It`s going to be an interesting ride for the Intel Z77 chipset. It is looking like the only difference is the addition of the SuperSpeed USB 3.0. The problem with the Intel Z77 chipset is that it doesn`t feature anything really worth upgrading for over the Intel Z68 system. If your looking to build a new system with either a Sandy Bridge or Ivy Bridge processor, the Intel Z77 would be the way to go. If you`re on an existing `Sandy Bridge` system, there really isn`t a good reason to make the switch..."

Logitech G105: Made For Call of Duty Gaming Keyboard Review
     Mon, Mar 05 2012 | 2:04P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Switching over to the keyboard we are about to be looking at should really be like changing the color of my T-shirt. By this I mean the feel of the keys, the layout and the keyboards functionality are all something I am fully aware of and used to using. This is not to say they are exactly the same, as there are distinct differences between this new sample and the G110 I have been wearing out over the past year with all of these reviews. With most samples there is a bit of a learning curve to get used to the product, or learn the nuances of the software, but since I have used Logitech products of all sorts over the years, the software side is nothing new to me either. Today we are going to be looking at the G105: Made for Call of Duty gaming keyboard. This means that you of course are getting all the basic functionality that the G105 offers as well as having a few cool additions. With my G110 the LED coloration is limited to red, blue and various shades of purple to illuminate the keys. With the COD MW3 version, everything is glowing green to resemble night vision technology, helping to immerse you into the gameplay. There are also two sets of grey keys to help guide your fingers in the dark to the WASD and arrow keys."

As the market for DIY computer parts expands it`s becoming harder and harder to find a quality chassis for less than $100. Nearly all ATX cases have risen above the $100 mark but usually are worth the coin considering fans, space, features etc."

Installing Windows 8 Consumer Preview In A VirtualBox Virtual Machine
     Mon, Mar 05 2012 | 1:55P | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new virtual machine is all ready to use and powered by Windows 8. Depending on your hardware and how much memory and processing power you were able to allocate, the experience may nor many not be the smoothest. Nevertheless, it should give you a good idea of what the OS looks like and how it operates. Then, using that information, if you think the new beta operating system is for you, you can start planning a bare metal install on some physical hardware."

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.
