MSI GeForce GTX 980 Gaming 4G Review @ ocaholic
     Tue, Nov 11 2014 | 9:12A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the GTX 980 Gaming 4G, MSI has a Maxwell based graphics card in their portfolio, which features a rather high factory overclocking and apart from that there is the brand new Twin Frozr V cooler. MSI is combining a custom PCB with a custom cooler in order to allow for great overclocking potential and we`re really curious to find out what this beast can do. "

GALAX GeForce GTX 970 EXOC Black Edition review
     Sat, Nov 08 2014 | 10:07A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,GALAX is at it again, this time we review their GeForce GTX 970 EXOC edition as in Extreme Overclocked. The product comes factory overclocked with a boost clock of 1317 MHz (!). The product has a custom and relatively small PCB, it`s the cooler that makes it lengthy in a more regular fashion. Talking about that cooler, GALAX had a mission, it was to make the card both silent whilst offering temps in the 60 Degrees C range, and hey they certainly achieved. The card has 4 GB graphics memory, is energy efficient and comes factory overclocked for you. Let`s check it out shall well?"

Diamond Boost Radeon R9 270X Review
     Fri, Nov 07 2014 | 9:12A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overclocking Diamond`s R9 270X was about as straight forward as it gets. With a lack of voltage control the only means of improving current flow to the core was by increasing the power limit settings. By maxing this setting out at +20%, I was able to boost the core clock speed on the Pitcairn-based core to 1190MHz - a 140MHz boost in clock speed over the default 1050MHz. Having worked with a couple R9 270X cards already, I had a good idea of where the core clock speed would end up, but each and every sample is different. Sometimes you get a (pardon the pun) Diamond in the rough. Memory overclocking also fell into the expected range. Based on the SK Hynix GDDR5 memory ICs used, around 1600MHz is a reasonable clock speed for the memory on this card from Diamond. This card was able deliver a 200MHz increase in the GDDR5 memory speeds over the as delivered 1400MHz. The boost of the memory clock speed to 1600MHz delivers a 6400MHz data rate versus the stock 5600MHz data rate for some help when the memory is your bottleneck. Keeping the card cool is paramount to getting stable clock speeds at higher than the rated capabilities of the hardware. Bumping the fan speed up to 100% helps cool the R9 270X down enough to bring stability at the clock speeds tested."

ASUS STRIX GTX 980 OC 4 GB @ techPowerUp

Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS GTX 980 STRIX OC is the company`s latest flagship, featuring completely passive operation in idle and light load, and an extremely quiet cooler during full-on gaming. The GTX 980 STRIX also impresses with its power consumption, which is lower than the NVIDIA reference card, while still delivering more performance."

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 970 G1 Gaming Graphics Card Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Sat, Nov 01 2014 | 5:52P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIAs GeForce 900 Series has been a long time coming and gamers have anxiously awaited it. NVIDIA has been using the Kepler architecture for quite sometime and when Maxwell was introduced last year we only saw the entry-level and budget friendly cards. When we finally got word that we would be seeing performance segment Maxwell cards lets just say we got excited. Today we will be looking at our first review of a GeForce 900 series card and it comes in the form of the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 970 G1 Gaming. For starters the GeForce GTX 970 has 1664 CUDA cores, 104 texture units, 64 ROPs and packs 4GB of GDDR5 memory. Normally this card would have speeds of 1050 MHz core and 1178 MHz boost, but Gigabyte has overclocked their version to speeds of 1178 MHz core and 1329 MHz boost. On top of that Gigabyte has implemented their latest WindForce 3X cooler on the card to give you the best cooling possible. Lets get this card on the bench and see what it can do!"

ASUS STRIX GeForce GTX 970 4GB Graphics Card Review
     Fri, Oct 24 2014 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In May of this year ASUS decided to introduce a new product series into its graphics card line up, the STRIX line. STRIX first showed up on two ASUS graphics cards sporting the AMD R9 280 and the Nvidia GTX 780 GPUs. The headline feature was a 0dB fan operation mode below 65 degrees celsius operation. Shortly after those releases ASUS expanded the STRIX moniker to a range of gaming peripherals to try and create a comprehensive brand for gaming needs. In the graphics card space the STRIX series has phased out the primacy of the ASUS DirectCU series of graphics cards. Although, the term phased out should be used loosely since ASUS effectively market the STRIX GTX 900 series graphics cards as STRIX and DirectCU products at the same time. While confusing, the duality of the naming pattern allows clear recognition of what these STRIX GTX 900 series cards offer. They offer DirectCU II cooling solutions but also the STRIX 0dB fan mode.

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.
