SSD NEWS: Examining The SSD Industry - Researching The Controller or Processor With Wayne Eisenberg
     Tue, Feb 28 2012 | 4:11P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Examining The SSD Industry - Researching The Controller or Processor is our third submission of several which examines the SSD industry from the ground up and provides some thought provoking ideals through the mind of Wayne Eisenberg, former VP of Worldwide Sales at SMART Modular. Within the series, topics will explore such things as the benefit of proprietary NAND in SSDs, the importance of the controller, firmware, warranties, as well as the changing face of the SSD arena as we see it. All reports are the thoughts and opinions of Wayne himself, a man who many would agree is probably one of the most versed in the industry, and has kindly agreed to open up the forum to discussion and questions by way of article comments."

SteelSeries DESMO Snow by GUNNAR Optiks Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Tue, Feb 28 2012 | 4:11P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SteelSeries DESMO Snow by GUNNAR Optiks Review @ HardwareHeaven.com To many the thought of gaming eyewear may sound like a gimmick, causing an eyebrow or two to be raised. Especially so when See Better, Play Better is found on the box with claims that are nothing short of spectacular. However looking a little closer the product brief explains the eyewears technology will increase contrast, enhance detail, help reduce glare, improve endurance, decrease eye fatigue and dry eyes... Interesting and in theory not entirely unreasonable."

TECH NEWS: LSI Releases Code To Manufacturers - New Increased Capacity SandForce Driven SSDs Hit The Streets
     Tue, Feb 28 2012 | 4:11P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Those who have wondered why SandForce based SSDs seem to have a shorter storage capacity than all others (ie 240/256GB) need not worry further. LSI has recently released code to maufacturers which allows them to remove that 7% over provisioning that Sandforce drives are famous for without a performance kick, providing the consumer with 7% more storage on each new SSD."

Building The SHIFT, Maingear's DIY Kit Explored
     Tue, Feb 28 2012 | 4:02P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Maingear computers first stepped out with their high-end SHIFT line of gaming and workstation PCs, we took note and were genuinely impressed; a bit of rarefied air if you will. It wasn't so much the component selection that stood out, but it was the excellent build quality and the SHIFT's 90-degree rotated layout that caused our double-take, and ultimately put Maingear on the map as a major player in the space. Maingear's products may not be the low price watermark, but they definitely set the high quality bar up a notch or three. Recently Maingear announced that they'd be offering a DIY SHIFT chassis and cooling system kit for a limited time, to folks that might want to try their hand at building a SHIFT-infused PC for themselves. We tried our hand at building our very own SHIFT and will step through the process with you here...

Radeon HD 7770 Black Super Overclocked
     Tue, Feb 28 2012 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Radeon HD 7770 Black Super Overclocked Edition Double Dissipation is a video card from XFX featuring the new "Cape Verde" mainstream GPU. The card is cooled by the new dual fan cooling system from the same manufacturer, which is both efficient and silent, the GPU reaching no more than 65 degrees after 15 minutes of stress testing in Furmark. The card comes pre-overclocked and still has some headroom left without the need of raising the stock voltage.

Intel Sandy Bridge RC6 Is Good To Go
     Tue, Feb 28 2012 | 3:33P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It looks like the debacle concerning RC6 power-savings support for Intel Sandy Bridge hardware is finally behind us. Intel thinks everything is worked out and ready to be enabled upstream (again) with the next Linux 3.4 kernel cycle and Canonical has enabled RC6 by default in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. Here are some tests showing the performance benefits and power-saving abilities of using the RC6 hardware feature on Sandy Bridge processors."

Extreme Memory Overclocking on Llano (World Records!) @ ocaholic
     Tue, Feb 28 2012 | 2:45P | Overclocking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Four weeks ago I (Christian Ney) was participating at the Llano Overclocking competition at hwbot.org. My processor appeared to be quite good for memory overclocking paired with memory kits powered by Hynix H9C memory chips. I managed some very good results but I wanted to get more out of this setup. So this is what I came up with."

EPIC GEAR Meduza HDST Gaming Mouse and Hybrid Pad Review
     Tue, Feb 28 2012 | 2:21P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Let me start by introducing you to Epic Gear. From what I can gather, it looks like the company just started at the end of last year and is now in the position to offer products in masses to the public. In reality they are a part of a much larger organization, Golden Empire International Limited, or as we know them GeIL, the memory company. If you were to go and check out their page on the web, you would find that I am about to show you the only two products that Epic Gear are currently offering. On that same site you can also see that they have a keyboard on the way soon and for those on the go, a bag to tote your laptop in. Back to the products on hand, this mouse offers something that has likely been thought of to some extent, but is something I have never seen. This product uses a plethora of technology built into the mouse to deliver every user a mouse that will suit their needs. By using an ARM processor to do all of the thinking and transmitting, the mouse in combination with the 128KB of onboard memory can be programmed for macros, various profiles and the ability to switch out three sensor modes. That`s right; with this mouse you can either use the optical sensor, the laser sensor or a combination of them using Hybrid Dual Sensor technology (HDST)."

Epic Gear Meduza Gaming Mouse and Hybrid Pad @ Benchmark Reviews
     Tue, Feb 28 2012 | 1:57P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
What features make the best gaming mouse? Laser or Optical? High or low sensitivity? Epic Gear has released a new technology to make it so you don`t have to choose. The new Meduza Gaming Mouse uses Hybrid Dual Sensor Technology (HDST) to combine the best of both paradigms. Along with their Hybrid Mouse pad they have benchmarked high mouse performance. In this article, Benchmark Reviews evaluates the Meduza (model EGMA1H-OB) and Hybrid Pad (model EGHP1-OB-M) in preparation for their upcoming release."

Corsair Vengeance K60 Review - XSReviews
     Tue, Feb 28 2012 | 1:33P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We liked the Corsair Vengeance K90 mechanical gaming keyboard, but many gamers won`t want to spend the extra dosh on backlighting and 18 macro keys. For them, the Corsair Vengeance K60 may be a good bet -- at £80, it`s a fair amount cheaper than the K90, but offers the same hearty helping of Cherry MX Red mechanical switches and unique aluminium design. Let`s have a look at how this FPS-focused keyboard measures up to its bigger brother."

Core i7-3820K and Core i7-3930K Radeon HD 7970 Gaming Performance @ ocaholic
     Tue, Feb 28 2012 | 1:08P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This time we`re going to check gaming performance of two LGA 2011 processors. The first CPU is a quad core i7-3820 which runs at 3.60 GHz default and comes with ten megabyte L3 cache. The second CPU is a core i7-3930K which does 3.2 GHz and features twelve megabyte L3 cache. At this point we`re quite curious what might be the difference in gaming performance between these quite different CPUs."

REVIEW: Kingston SSDNow V+ 200 @ PureOverclock
     Tue, Feb 28 2012 | 1:01P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we will be taking a close look at a cost effective drive offering from Kingston, the SSDNow V+200 120GB SATA III drive. The primary reason for the lower cost is Kingston`s choice of asynchronous (Async) NAND flash memory. Async SSDs can provide as much as $100 in savings verses a SSD that uses synchronous (Sync) NAND of the same capacity. The trade-off for value is performance, Sync SSDs do provide faster transfer rates as well as reads with incompressible data. Does this matter? Yes and No, as we will see in the today`s review."

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.
