Noctua NF-F12 PWM Fan Review Update @Hi Tech Legion
     Fri, Mar 23 2012 | 12:03P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With our original review of the Noctua NF-F12 PWM fans complete, we came away not surprised but very impressed with what Noctua had done. We were curious to find out for ourselves how big of a difference there would be between Noctua's NF-F12 PWM fans and Cooler Masters Sickle Flows on a water cooled rig. Noctua was more than gracious, and sent us another three of their NF-F12 PWM controlled fans for our little experiment."

Sapphire Radeon 7750 Ultimate @ PureOverclock
     Fri, Mar 23 2012 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“We've seen several graphics cards from Sapphire, and have noted their ability to provide great products at affordable prices. We've also seen several innovative products from Sapphire that no other manufacturer can claim. And today is a bit of a continuation of that trend, as we're looking at the Radeon 7750 Ultimate. What's so unique about the Ultimate? Well, it's a passively cooled card. That's not new, quite true, but Sapphire is one of the only companies that still has a strong commitment to the niche HTPC market, especially for lower-priced cards, by bringing unique features to a market segment that lacks the hype of the flagship gaming cards.”

SAPPHIRE HD 7750 ULTIMATE
     Fri, Mar 23 2012 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Performance wise...well, you're getting what you pay for. You can't expect to pay $129 and get a top notch, current gen, GPU. However, the HD 7750 is perfectly capable of playing most any game currently out with fairly decent settings. Not only that, but I did run a few eyefinity benchmarks and, if you turn the settings down a bit, the card delivers borderline playable framerates, spread across three 1920x1080 screens. So in reality, this card is capable of turning your HTPC into a light and silent gaming machine!"

The new Apple iPad (2012) Preview

Posted by: STAFF
"Wait! What's that? A reviewer who isn't going to get down on his knees and pray to the God that is Apple? Yes. That's me. Let's break the trend here, folks. I'm going to come out and say it: the new iPad, is, ok. It's not mind-blowing, it's not revolutionary...it's a simple step toward (in my opinion) a future product that will surely shake things up, like the original iPhone did."

OCZ RevoDrive Hybrid Solid State Drive
     Fri, Mar 23 2012 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have already seen one hybrid solid state drive solution in the Synapse Cache drive from OCZ. You pair it with your normal hard drive and it acts as a cache drive doing most of the work to speed things up. If you are familiar with OCZ’s RevoDrive series of drives you know they offer some of the fastest transfer speeds available on the consumer level when it comes to solid state drives. OCZ has decided to take this incredible speed put it together with their caching technology and brings us the RevoDrive Hybrid. It is a PCI-Express card that has a normal 1TB drive on it for storage and 128GB of solid state flash to do the caching. The drive has rated speeds of up to 910MB/s read and 810MB/s write. Read on as we take a look…"

At the launch of the new HD 7950 we checked out a pair of pre-overclocked Sapphire cards in CrossFire. Today we check out the other HD 7950 the company is offering and see how it goes with the latest WHQL driver from AMD which is the first official driver for the HD 7900 series. Outside of our normal Catalyst article we expanded upon our testing when we looked at the Diamond HD 7970 where we tested our complete benchmark line up on the latest driver and found some nice improvements."

REVIEW: Nvidia GeForce GTX 680 @ PureOverclock
     Fri, Mar 23 2012 | 2:29A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today marks the highly anticipated launch of Nvidia`s Kepler lineup, with the GeForce GTX 680 being the first out of the gate as the company`s flagship desktop card. We, like many others, expect big things from Kepler. Is the GeForce GTX 680 fast? It certainly is, but that`s not really unexpected. So what`s really intresting and impressive? How about providing twice the performance per Watt? What about dynamically adjusting clock speeds, voltages, and power consumption hard-wired into the card? What about Base Clocks and Boost Clocks, and automatic overclocking out of the box? Oh, now those are the things that should really excite you. But just how much does all this juicy goodness cost? Only $499."

NVIDIA GTX 680 Review
     Thu, Mar 22 2012 | 11:46P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A good bit of negative feedback is present on the Internet about how the Kepler cards overclock. Even I was worried, but after realizing that the level to which the power target can be set can not possibly cause the card to decrease its clocks, those worries went away. As soon as I saw my set clock speed steady for every benchmark, I felt loads better. So, to put this to rest, your overclocking potential is not going to be limited AT ALL! So, looping Unigine 3.0 while I was overclocking, I was able to reach 1305MHz on the core and 1628MHz (6500MHz effective) on the memory. That`s nearly a 30% increase on the core and just under 10% on the memory. I was hoping for 7GHz memory here, but it couldn`t quite make it. Even while pushing the card past its limit and having the overclock fail, the system never crashed. Only the graphics card driver fails, but successfully recovers. It is certainly the most painless overclocking I`ve had for sure; the system never locked up!"

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.
