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."
