Typical PC enthusiasts may spend more on their PCs than you might thinkand by the looks of it, their taste for high-end hardware isn`t just limited to core components. Those are two of the main takeaways from the TR Hardware Survey 2014, in which we invited readers to answer 26 questions about their PCs. Around 4,000 of you participated over a period of about a week and a half, and the results paint an enlightening picture of current trends in the hobbyist PC realm."

Giada D2308U Mini-PC Review @ Madshrimps
     Wed, Oct 15 2014 | 6:14A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The D2308U is a little PC monster from Giada, incorporating at its core one the Intel i7 4500U processor, 8GB of DDR3L SODIMM and, the main point of attraction, a fully-fledged Nvidia GeForce 750 with 2GB of GDDR5. As storage, the manufacturer has chosen to include on HGST 1TB 5400RPM which can be replaced with a speedier mechanical drive or a SSD, while on the back side we have one unused mSATA 6Gbps port for even more storage expansion possibilities."

Intel Pentium J2900 & Asrock Q2900-ITX Review
     Fri, Oct 10 2014 | 9:03A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In our budget CPU roundup earlier this year, AMD's Kabini Athlon 5350 squared off against Intel's Bay Trail-D Celeron J1900, showing itself to be better at gaming and encoding workloads. The new Asrock Q2900-ITX ships with a Pentium J2900 on a Mini-ITX board for $104 and is aimed straight against the same AMD offering. The Pentium chip is nearly identical to Intel's Celeron J1900 at first glance, but differs in raw clock speed.

Hands on with the ECS LIVA Mini PC Kit @ ThinkComputers.org
     Wed, Sep 03 2014 | 10:47A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At ECSs LIVA, LEAD, L337 press event this week in Silicon Valley we were able to go hands on with their LIVA Mini PC Kit. They are dubbing this kit the worlds smallest Windows based Mini PC Kit. The LIVA has actually been out for a little while now, but at the event ECS announced the 64 GBversion (white). The black version of the LIVA is the 32 GB version. The unit itself is only 118 x 70 x 56 mm and weighs in at 190g, so yes it is very small. The device only uses 15W of power at full load and 4W during standby so it uses no more power than a light bulb!"

Twelve desktop sets reviewed: buy cheaply, pay dearly
     Thu, Aug 28 2014 | 4:03P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
You can't avoid having to purchase a new keyboard or a new mouse every once in a while. Desktop sets which combine both are relatively inexpensive; that is what people seem to think, at least. We tested twelve sets ranging from approximately 20 to 90 euros, but were ultimately left unimpressed.

In Win 901 @ techPowerUp
     Thu, Aug 28 2014 | 8:53A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The In Win 901 is a smaller version of the 904, intended for use with a Mini-ITX board instead. Even so, it still offers enough space for an optical drive and a long GPU. Will the smaller brother impress us as much as the 904?"

Digital Storm Bolt II Small Form Factor PC Review
     Tue, Aug 26 2014 | 10:12A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the desktop PC market showing signs of faded interest over the past several years, Digital Storm is here to help spark interest to those who are gamers at heart. While at CES 2014, Digital Storm showed us their latest custom PC creation, the Bolt II. This hand crafted beauty is designed and built in the United States, which is a rare thing to find in manufacturing these days. The Bolt II was designed to be a Steam Machine or HTPC, but you absolutely aren’t forced to use it as such. Digital Storm meant for this small form factor PC to be extremely powerful, should you choose to pick out all of the high end goodness. The basic Level 1 system comes with an i5 4590, 8GB of RAM, and a GTX 760, whereas the Level 4 starts off with a 4790k, 16GB of RAM, and a GTX 780 Ti. With that said, you have a ton of customization below, in-between, and even above these specs. Read on to see how the Digital Storm Bolt II performs when we put it to the test.

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
