Humble Indie Bundle 12 Review
     Sun, Oct 26 2014 | 8:59A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the individual reviews covered, does the Humble Indie Bundle 12, as a whole, deserve to be purchased, and at what level? Two of the three base games, Gunpoint and Hammerwatch, are both titles I would recommend to anyone interested. The third game, SteamWorld Dig, has the issue of being a game for explorers, so if you are not one, you may not want to get it. If you are though, it is pretty easy to recommend. Of the BTA games, LUFTRAUSERS stands out the best, as its addicting gameplay is something I think many gamers would enjoy. Papers, Please is also a game I recommend picking up the bundle for, if you are ready for its style of gameplay. Gone Home left me undecided. It is a well-done, story-focused game, but it just never quite grabbed me, as some others have. Still it is well done, so if you do beat the average, it is worth checking out."

Return of the Athlon: AMD Brings Kabini to the desktop @ Bjorn3d
     Sat, Oct 25 2014 | 4:22P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Athlon brand holds a very special place in the tech industry, as it was the first processor to reach 1 GHz. Back in its days, the Athlon CPUs give the Intel Pentium processors some serious competitions. AMD has kept the Athlon brand for almost a decade where it has gone through a numerous of architectural changes, double and quadruple the core counts and gained 64-bit support. Eventually, the brand was replaced when AMD launched Phenom platform in 2010. The old is suddenly new again. Like the Volkswagen brought back the Beetle, the Athlon brand has risen back from retirement with the recent launch of the desktop Kabini. AMD hopes that the success it has enjoyed with the original Athlon can be repeated once again with its latest low power CPU. "

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 980 G1 Gaming Review @ ocaholic
     Sat, Oct 25 2014 | 8:59A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gigabyte is amongst the select NVIDIA board partners that offer new Maxwell based high-end graphics cards from day one. The GTX 980 G1 Gaming ships with Gigabyte`s latest Windforce cooler, which should be well capable of keeping the card cool at low temperatures. Apart from that there is a custom design PCB, so this pixel cannon looks like a really interesting contender."

NZXT Kraken G10 Review
     Thu, Oct 23 2014 | 4:22P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One word really sums it up for me - WOW! Now really, the glory goes to the X31 - after all, it did all the work. But NZXT hits the ball out of the park with the combination of the X31 and the G10. My GPU temps took a huge dive under the heaviest of loads. And for just an extra $29.99 over the cost of the X31, you have a serious weapon against the heat."

ASUS Strix GTX 970 OC 4 GB @ techPowerUp
     Thu, Oct 23 2014 | 9:34A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS has just released their GeForce Strix GTX 970 OC, an overclocked, custom-PCB version of the GTX 970. What is special about the STRIX technology is that it will shut off the fans completely during idle, media playback and light gaming, resulting in a completely noiseless experience."

LUXA2 GroovyR Micro Wireless Bluetooth Speaker
     Thu, Oct 23 2014 | 9:01A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I didn't expect to be impressed by the audio performance of such a compact, lightweight speaker. At 120mm in diameter by 32mm tall, and just 230g (much of which has to be battery), I didn't think it would have what it took to fill a room with accurately reproduced sound. I was wrong. While the bass from the GroovyR is definitely tame, it covers the full range of sounds very well and there is absolutely nothing tinny about what you hear.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 970 G1 Gaming review
     Thu, Oct 23 2014 | 8:59A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,Next to the flagship product we also test the more budget Gigabyte GeForce GTX 970 G1 SOC gaming graphics card. The product does not vary much from the 980 other than a chunk of performance. This card however has one 6 and one 8-pin power feed but then again, does come with that 600 Watt WindForce cooler. The G1 Gaming has 4 GB graphics memory, is energy efficient and factory overclocked for you. You will be surprised by how this card looks, how silent it is and how well it performs."

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.
