Biostar A88W Hi-Fi 3D ATX Motherboard Review
     Tue, Apr 08 2014 | 1:57P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“In the past several months, the push for Home Theater PC’s (HTPC’s for short) has started to grow wildly. The allure of a fully modular home theater machine that does more than just play your movies or music is simply too strong for many to resist, and rightfully so. While there are many choices out there of associated hardware, with more on the way, Biostar has one now that appeals directly to the audiophile: the A88W Hi-Fi 3D. Designed with both a high-end isolated audio solution and potential for tuning an unlocked APU, this motherboard looks to be a very sensible choice for those who want a little bit from every buffet of tech; the question is, “Does it deliver finely tuned notes for enthusiasts of all kinds, or does it fall flat?” We’re here to find out just that.”

ASUS Maximus VI Gene Motherboard Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Sat, Apr 05 2014 | 11:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUSs Republic of Gamers line is just what you think it is, a line of products specifically targeted at gamers. While many PC games have full tower rigs with multiple graphics card and intense watercooling others just have a simple setup. Being a PC gamer who attends multiple LAN parties a year I made the switch to a Micro-ATX system a long time ago to make it easier for me to bring my PC to events. ASUS of course catering to gamers actually has two motherboards in their Republic of Gamers Z87 stack, the Maximus VI Gene which is a Micro-ATX board and the even smaller Maximus VI Impact which is a Mini-ITX board. Today, our review will be focusing on the Maximus VI Gene, which has quite a lot of features for gamers and overclockers alike. Lets check it out!"

MSI Z87I Gaming AC (LGA 1150) Mini-ITX Motherboard
     Thu, Mar 20 2014 | 12:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The mini-ITX trend continues to gain ground in the desktop market as enthusiasts look to make cooler, sexier and more compact systems. To an extent the shift towards more compact form factors and designs is the desktop market’s response to the increasing pressure from popular mobile form factors like the tablet and the ultrabook. However, while that may be true to an extent, mini-ITX just makes sense for a number of a reasons. If you’re only going to use a single graphics card, a pair of memory modules and a handful of SATA devices then why bother with ATX or even micro-ATX. That is especially relevant these days when mini-ITX boards have absolutely everything you could need, and then a little more. That’s exactly what we have on offer today as we’re taking a look at MSI’s Z87I Gaming AC motherboard. This is MSI’s first mini-ITX “Gaming Series” branded motherboard and it has all the hallmarks of a gaming-orientated motherboard – a Killer NiC, high quality audio components and a boat-load of connectivity options. However, it also has all the hallmarks of a solid enthusiast/overclocking motherboard as we’ve come to expect from most company’s “Gaming” product lines. Despite its size there’s full support for overclocking Haswell K series CPUs, a 6 phase VRM, support for up to 3000MHz+ RAM, MSI’s OC Genie 4 and a fully decked out UEFI BIOS with lot’s of overclocking and tweaking options.

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.
