The Illusion of Overclocking Support
     Sun, Jun 08 2014 | 12:02P | Overclocking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The way I see it if something is worth doing, it is worth doing well. When it comes to enthusiast hardware, either overclocking or gaming, hardware makers need to reach beyond the target communities and spend some effort advertising their hardware and events.

DimasTech Test/Bench Table Review @ HardwareHeaven.com For anyone, like enthusiast overclockers or reviewers... really any people who need to regularly and quickly change components DimasTech have created a selection of test benches. Essentially a replacement for a traditional chassis they allow easy access to all the key components while also providing an area for the more static items and wiring. Today we take a look at their EasyXL Test/Bench table."

Gigabyte CDRomland OC Workshop
     Wed, Apr 16 2014 | 4:19P | Overclocking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After a first successful outing of the Hardware.Info Pro OC team, it was time to head to a new location. Bundling forces with Gigabyte, Intel and the CDRomLand store the stage was set for another OC workshop. Since the Hardware.Info team is involved in HWBOT's Pro OC Cup some scores had to be improved to remain within the top 10, a tedious task as overclocking with a curious crowd adds constantly asking questions adds up to the challenge. Time to head over to the lovely city of Breda to the CDRomLand shop.

AMD Kaveri A10-7850K Overclocking – Unleashing GCN’s Potential
     Tue, Apr 15 2014 | 3:51P | Overclocking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD’s Kaveri K Series APUs have a wealth of untapped performance potential: out of the box they come with a modest 720MHz GPU core clock speed, yet anyone who has toyed with AMD APUs in the past knows there’s going to be a lot of overclocking headroom. Before we progress any further I’m going to make my intentions with this article clear – AMD’s Kaveri APU is about the GPU and that’s where our focus lays today. Sure you can overclock the CPU, but because the CPU and GPU are combined, overclocking the CPU reduces the thermal and power headroom of the GPU, and vice versa. Not to mention that the GPU offers the most potential for performance scaling whereas the CPU doesn’t offer anywhere near as much – so picking the CPU over the GPU will leave you with less performance than if you’d have picked the GPU. Picking only the GPU for overclocking also makes sense as the A10-7850K is primarily designed to be a gaming chip, and a chip that takes advantage of GPU acceleration, so overclocking the CPU with detriment to the GPU makes no sense at all. How does the CPU have the potential to detriment the GPU you might ask? Well it is quite simple – the CPU produces more heat and uses more power than the GPU so overclocking it is likely to lead to thermal throttling of the entire APU package. With regards to TDP/power-based throttling you can get around this by disabling AMD’s APM (Application Power Management) but you still have the heat issue to contend with. Therefore for the purposes of this article we’re going with a GPU overclock only. For those interested in overclocking the CPU you’re better off waiting for the standalone Steamroller based Athlon CPUs to hit the FM2+ socket, or going with existing FX and Athlon series AMD CPUs.

MSI/Informatique OC Academy featuring HWinfo Pro OC Team
     Mon, Apr 14 2014 | 12:01P | Overclocking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sponsored OC venues are getting more and more popular; Belgian shop Tones.be started this trend in the Low Lands in 2011 with the first OC Academy. The initial concept was to introduce people to the hobby of overclocking; via the knowledge of the MadShrimps crew, the attendees got initiated in the quest of more MHz Though it quickly expanded to the more extreme form of overclocking and even went international one time. Overclockers are still being used by the hardware manufacturers for highlighting the durability, quality of components and versatility of their products. Last weekend the brand new Hardware.Info Pro OC team was present at the huge shop of Informatique in the Netherlands; joining forces with MSI and Hardware.info this should be an ideal cocktail for new records.

VisionTek 26 Piece PC Tool Kit Review
     Sun, Mar 02 2014 | 9:01A | Overclocking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“When building a PC, any old average set of tools (as long as they contain at least a philips screwdriver) will do you in a pinch, but it’s best not to use Dad’s rusty-old screwdriver because it could get rust flakes and who knows what other kinds of dirt and grime all over your new PC hardware. Thankfully there are tool kits designed specifically with system building in mind, and VisionTek has a fairly comprehensive kit of their own, which we will review for you today. Their kit comes with 26 pieces of surprisingly versatile, yet simple tools.”

Posted by: STAFF
Last week-end, ocaholic hosted the Ocaholic Overclocking Competition Smash and Trash 13 in Regensdorf, close to Zrich Switzerland. In total there were ten well-known overclockers present and there were names like TaPaKaH from Latvia, der8auer from Germany, mat from Austria and Hiwa, splmann, Michel90 and Christian Ney from Switzerland. In cooperation with the sponsors ASUS, Cooler Master, Corsair, Intel, Samsung and Seasonic the five teams started turning 500 liters of liquid nitrogen into scores."

Ivy Bridge-E Overclocking With EVGA And Corsair
     Fri, Nov 08 2013 | 4:01P | Overclocking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It has been a while since I personally have setup a bench, rolled up my sleeves and built a test system with top-shelf components, a fresh OS install and some overclocking mojo. However, Intel's recent release of Ivy Bridge-E gave us a hankering to do just that. We've been testing a lot of tablets, smartphones and Ultrabooks but there's a satisfaction with building a high performance system from the ground up, that you just don't get from pre-built devices... EVGA recently took the wraps off a new high-end X79 motherboard dubbed the X79 Dark and its black PCB with red accents, as it turned out, matched quite nicely with Corsair's Vengeance Pro series memory and H90 water cooler. But we needed stable clean power too, so we enlisted an EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 G2 power supply to offer up the juice. All told, with an OCZ Vertex 3 Max IOPs SSD for storage, we ended up with quite a test platform to explore the out limits of clock speed with Intel's Core i7-4960X Ivy Bridge-E six-core processor.

Intel NUC Kit D54250WYK Overclocking @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Oct 15 2013 | 10:03A | Overclocking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We?ve spent pretty much all our free time this week using the Intel NUC Kit D54250WYK and if you couldn?t tell from our review, we love the new design and the Intel 4th Generation Core i5-4250U Haswell processor that powers it. In our review we showed you the general performance of the system running at stock speeds. The one question that we didn?t answer at that time is how it performs when overclocked. There aren?t too many things that you can overclock on the NUC since the CPU multiplier and bus speeds are locked down, but we can overclock the DDR3 memory. In the past overclocking the memory clock frequency has yielded some pretty good results for memory bandwidth limited applications and gaming benchmarks. Read on to see how the Intel NUC Kit D54250WYK performs with 1866MHz memory!"

Thermaltake MEKA G-Unit Mechanical Keyboard Review
     Sat, Oct 12 2013 | 2:09P | Overclocking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall the MEKA G-Unit Red Switch Edition Mechanical Keyboard from Thermaltake`s branch of ESPORTS gear was not too bad. I won`t say it was one of my favorite keyboards that I`ve used but honestly that goes back to the fact that I hate Reds. This keyboard was designed specifically to cater to those of you who love the Cherry MX Reds - and that`s just not me. That doesn`t change the fact that this keyboard is built quite well and could kill a zombie in your gaming room without a struggle. It also doesn`t change the unique gaming lighting patterns available - providing some lighting rather than none at all."

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.
