Kingston HyperX Genesis 16GB 2133MHz Quad Channel Kit
     Thu, Apr 05 2012 | 12:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Many of you know that up until 5-6 months ago my favorite testing platform was the LGA1366 by Intel which was also the only platform with triple channel DDR3 support, something that played a huge part in my choice. Besides that's also why 3 out of my 4 test rigs featured Intel Core i7-920 (Bloomfield) CPUs each paired with 12GB of RAM (3x4GB). However all things come to an end eventually, especially when it comes to all things related with technology and so the launch of the latest Intel LGA2011 platform signified the upgrade of my primary test system. It did take a while until i finally managed to get the 2nd revision of the Core i7-3930k (Sandy Bridge-E) CPU to build the system but since that happened I’ve been putting all the latest Quad channel memory kits to hit the market through various tests to see just how good the new platform really is. So the very first Quad Channel DDR3 kit review to upload is about the latest and fastest Quad Kit manufactured by Kingston currently, the HyperX Genesis 16GB Kit running at 2133MHz with a CAS Latency of 11 (khx2133c11d3k4/16gx).

OCZ Vertex 4 SATA 3 SSD Review
     Thu, Apr 05 2012 | 9:03A | Hardware | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our SSD analysis today is going to be on both the 256GB and 512GB versions of the OCZ Vertex 4 SATA 3 SSD and you are going to need to take a seat for this. We guarantee that there has never been an SSD capable of creating such a stir in the SSD world and will not be at any time in the near future. In fact, I will guarantee that you will look at solid state drives in an entirely new light by the time you’re finished reading this report. After all, the Vertex 4 is truly the first of its kind.

Noctua NH-D14 SE2011 CPU Cooler Review

Posted by: STAFF
Today we're reviewing a mammoth of a CPU cooler that was designed to do one thing specifically: to silently cool and overclocked LGA2011 CPU. As you know, these CPUs can get very hot, so the Noctua requires a lot of hardware to cool it - it weighs in at over 2.6 lbs, and is 16cm tall.

NEXUS Prominent R Midi Tower Review
     Wed, Apr 04 2012 | 9:28P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It's been far too long since i last reviewed a PC Case and since there has been quite a large number of new ones released in the market lately (many of which are already here) i think it's time i got back on track. Now as some of you know I’ve always liked full sized towers more than midi ones since installing lots of hardware in tight spaces is not really my thing, not to mention about other things such as airflow levels. However lately i have actually seen quite a few feature rich midi towers which i would actually consider using for my own test rigs (and i have if you are following our FB page) instead of full sized ones and the Prominent R by NEXUS which we have here today is such a midi tower PC Case.

latest Corsair Dominator GT Kit
     Wed, Apr 04 2012 | 9:27P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ile last year was the push for higher frequencies netting us outrageous 2600 MHz kits, this year is primed to be the year of capacity. As the standard capacity of any gaming or enthusiast platform increases from 8GB to 16GB and larger, we will start to see even higher density kits released. Today we look at one such kit, the Corsair Dominator GT 32GB Kit.

Thermaltake Overseer RX-I Midi Tower Review
     Wed, Apr 04 2012 | 9:27P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Yesterday i uploaded a review surrounding the latest PC Case manufactured by NEXUS, one of the latest players in the market, called the Prominent R which may not have the most radical design in the market but it does carry a large number of features making it a very good overall solution in the midi tower segment of the market. However since the design of the case may not appeal to everyone out there today i decided to take things a bit further (more like at the opposite side) and bring you a review about one of the latest midi tower offerings by Thermaltake called the Overseer RX-I (VN700M1W2N) which also happens to have a large number of features but this time over the design part of the unit has nothing simple about it (you can tell for yourself just by looking at the intro image).

Intel is ready to officially announce its latest 7 series chipsets with native s
     Wed, Apr 04 2012 | 9:26P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Diablo III is the sequel to one of the most popular games of all time; its launch on May 15 could cripple college graduation rates, triple the number of insomniacs worldwide, and slash national productivity. Believe us--we know. We've spent about six weeks with the beta and have just recently escaped from Khanduras to detail our findings. This time, there's a twist, however. Our preview is written in two parts; a big-picture examination of the game and a fine-grained, behind-the-scenes look at how Diablo 3 deals with some of the problems and design flaws endemic to its predecessor.

Posted by: STAFF
I am often surprised when I get together with friends to see the power supplies driving their otherwise high end PC builds. The same, otherwise sane, friends will often spend hundreds on video cards and high end CPUs but skimp on building a solid foundation, a proper power supply.

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.
