Lian Li PC-Q07B Mini-ITX Case Review
     Thu, May 29 2014 | 4:05P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Lian-Li?s historical reputation is filled with some of the most innovative designs and ideas such as their ?reverse-ATX? models. To add to their history, their products are undeniably well built and host one of the highest levels of quality that is available today in the market, which we have really come to enjoy here at Benchmark Reviews. Even in their budget oriented cases, Lian-Li has managed to impress us in the past with their choice of designs and user friendly layouts. The Lian Li PC-Q07B ITX case is no exception, featuring a very appealing and extremely small minimalistic cube design, we found that this case is perfect for the current trend of mini-ITX systems that keeps growing due to the improved integration of motherboard chipsets."

KobraLan Extreme Review @ ocaholic
     Fri, Apr 18 2014 | 9:55A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
KobraLan Extreme is the new mini-monster from KobraPC, which is based on an ITX formfactor with high-end components. The system is Haswell based with an Intel Core i7-4770K in order to pump out high frame rates there is a MSI GTX 780 Ti Gaming graphics card. In addition, the system is pretty clean inside but this build is certainly not cheap. If you`re curious to see what KobraPC has been building, have look at the following review."

Last month we featured a post on some of the most insane Crypto-Currency Mining Rigs out there.

Posted by: STAFF
Crypto-Currency mining has really taken off over the past year or so. So much so that we have seen a shortage of AMD graphics cards that are used for mining this currency. There are even motherboards and PC cases made specifically for mining. While many people mining are just using 1-2 graphics cards there some pretty insane setups. Read on to see what I am talking about"

Zotax Zbox Nano AQ01 Plus
     Mon, Jan 13 2014 | 4:03P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While Zotac maybe is most knows for their graphics cards they also are specialized on small motherboards and small desktop systems. Today we are reviewing one of those tiny small desktop PC’s: the Zotax Zbox Nano AQ01 Plus. This is a very small PC that even comes with a VESA-mount so it can be attached to a TV ore monitor and be out of sight. It has a Quad-core AMD “Kabini” APU, the A4-5000 while a Radeon HD 8330 provides us with the graphics muscles. This is not a gaming machine, even though the GPU should benefit from the Mantle API, but promises to work well as either a media PC, a kitchen PC or even a bedroom PC. Does it have what it takes to compete with tables and other tiny PC’s?

MSI AG2712 Gaming All-in-One review
     Thu, Jan 02 2014 | 9:00A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
All-in-one PCs are an exciting concept, but in terms of performance they're usually not that interesting. They look cool and have a modern design with touch features, but for serious work or gaming a traditional desktop is still the better option. For every rule there's an exception, such as the high-end Apple iMac 27 and the powerful HP Workstation Z1 aimed at professionals. MSI wants to join that select group with the MSI AG2712, a gaming all-in-one.

Shuttle OmniNAS KD21 review: great design
     Fri, Dec 27 2013 | 4:02P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Shuttle OmniNAS KD21 made a positive impression, it performs well and the firmware is well-organised. The enclosure is a strong point of this NAS, feauturing a memory card reader and two USB 3.0 ports. The software features are limited to downloading torrents, the Sharebox and mobile apps. If that's all you need, then the Shuttle OmniNAS KD21 is a very good and affordable NAS device.

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.
