Corsair CX600M PSU review
     Sun, Jul 28 2013 | 11:23A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,So you need a PSU that is not too expensive but comes from a reputable brand ? Well perhaps the Corsair CX600M PSU we review in this article is something you might find interesting. This 600 Watt Power Supply is grand in performance but even better in price. A product that is affordable, yet comes with the quality you can expect from a name like Corsair. Being the more `regular` non CX model these power supplies are a bit more affordable, yet remain high quality and high performance and 80 Plus Bronze certified. 80 Plus Bronze, semi-modular, and the fan doesn?t really spin up beyond its minimum speed until around 50% load. How does that sound ?"

SteelSeries FLUX In-Ear Pro Gaming Headset
     Sun, Jul 28 2013 | 10:08A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As far back as i can remember whenever i would find the time to attend a large LAN event i would see dozens of people wearing full sized closed type gaming headsets since these solutions obviously offered the best possible noise isolation along with good positioning audio (at least for most models). Personally i also use a closed type gaming headset with my primary test system to avoid intruding in other peoples privacy at night when playing online MMOs line Planetside 2 so this never really came as a surprise to me. However things seem to be changing and so lately many gaming peripherals manufacturers have begun to release in-ear headsets (i prefer the term earsets) featuring drivers with exceptional audio specifications making them ideal for gaming use. SteelSeries hardly needs any introductions and as it was expected they were the first manufacturer to join this new trend so follow us as we take their latest FLUX In-Ear Pro Headset and put it through rigorous testing with all the latest gaming titles, movies and of course our favorite new and old tunes."

ASUS GeForce GTX 760 DirectCU II OC review
     Sun, Jul 28 2013 | 10:08A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,In this article we review ASUS GeForce GTX 760 DirectCU II OC edition, this particular model comes with a dual-slot DirectCU II cooing solution. That boils down to a silent product versus and more than excellent cooling performance. The DirectCU heatsink uses a Vapor Chamber with flattened heatpipes.

Nvidia GTX 760 @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Jul 28 2013 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just this past week I was away on vacation, I came back to a stack of boxes with most of them being video cards. This time, most of them are a new model from Nvidia. Just like with other big launches, the Nvidia GTX 780 was quickly followed up by the GTX 770. To continue filling in gaps in their product line that the GTX 780 launch created Nvidia is launching the GTX 760 that will replace the GTX 660 Ti. Today we are going to take a look at the new GTX 760 and see what it is all about as well as seeing what it is capable in our test suite. The GTX 780 and GTX 770s were both impressive, I am very curious to see what they will be following them up with."

OCC E3 2013 Awards
     Sun, Jul 28 2013 | 8:30A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Is there any question? You only have to look at the small novel I wrote on the RPG category to see why The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is my Game of the Show. CD Projekt RED looks to be sending Geralt out on the highest note possible, with a massive world to explore, around 100 hours of quests (both main and side), and more things than you can shake a silver sword at. The Witcher 3 just looks like what I expect a next-gen game to be, and the best part is it`s still coming to the PC. I mean, what more can you ask for? OK, I know, more photos/videos of Geralt doing his Witcher`s stuff and probably (definitely) Triss Merigold, but give CDP time!"

Casio PROTREK PRG-240 Watch
     Sat, Jul 27 2013 | 4:07P | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ever wondered which are the 3 most well-known watch manufacturers according to most people and not just watch collectors and/or enthusiasts? Well i did and so last month i asked a total of 20 people (relatives, friends and FB fans) who surprisingly gave me similar answers. So the 5 most well-known watch manufacturers based on the answers of all of them are Rolex, Tag Heuer, Citizen, Seiko and Casio with Rolex and Casio taking the first two places since these were mentioned by pretty much everyone. Now although there`s not a single person that i know of that owns a genuine Rolex watch this brand is the equivalent of Rolls Royce (in watches) so it`s hardly a surprise that most people know of them. What i didn`t expect came later on when i asked all of them if they were aware of a specific model manufactured by one of those watch companies and the only one some of them knew was the G-SHOCK line by Casio. Casio however has many similar lines including the PROTREK one and today we got their latest PRG-240 model to review."

[Tech ARP] BIOS Option Of The Week - PCI 2.1 Compliance
     Sat, Jul 27 2013 | 11:33A | BIOS | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meager beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition. Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend. This week, we will be taking a look at the *PCI 2.1 Compliance** *setting."

Corsair Carbide Air 540 review
     Sat, Jul 27 2013 | 11:23A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,In this review we look at the all new Corsair Carbide Air 540. It has to be the most unusual product we have seen in a long time being cube shaped. But working our way through it we learned one thing, it is an absolutely innovative and impressive chassis. The main chamber of the Carbide Series Air 540 houses the motherboard and hot-swap 3.5? drives for drive cooling and quick swapping. The second chamber holds the power supply, SSDs, and 5.25? drives behind the motherboard tray. The separate compartments make building quite easy and provides excellent cable routing."

ASRock Z87 OC Formula Preview @ Ocaholic
     Sat, Jul 27 2013 | 10:08A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Z87 OC Formula is ASRocks new high-end motherboard regarding overclocking. Additionally there is a beefed up audio solution with a decent headphone amp, which makes this board more interesting for gamers too. There is even the possibility to integrate the chipset into a watercooling loop, which is certainly appealing to modder. Overall, it looks like ASRock is trying to kill several bird with one stone. Are they going to succeed?"

SteelSeries Apex [RAW] Review @ Vortez
     Sat, Jul 27 2013 | 10:08A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The core of the Apex design is a low-profile backlit membrane keyboard with a daunting number of macro keys. As with recent SteelSeries high-end gaming designs it comes in two flavours: a standard variant named simply the Apex and a core gamer variant denoted by the [RAW] SKU. Apex [RAW] is more affordable and limited in its functionality than the Apex, but still boasts seventeen (yes, 17!) macro keys and two layers of control."

NVIDIA GTX 760 2GB Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Sat, Jul 27 2013 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At just $250, NVIDIA`s GTX 760 is meant to compete against the HD 7950 Boost while costing $30 less and replace the GTX 660 Ti.  Those are some lofty goals but for the last 700-series GPU being released for the foreseeable future, its price may be perfect for budget-minded gamers."

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.
