TechREACTION Review: Enermax Briskie
     Sat, Jan 21 2012 | 11:31A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For testing, we decided that there was no better way to test it than to install it and type this review with the keyboard/mouse combo. Since it is geared toward portability and ease of use, we did not do any serious gaming on it. We all know wireless is not always the best gaming solution. The keys were very responsive while typing this review and the mouse, while taking a little while to get used to, worked great as well. With the on-the-fly DPI changes, we were able to control the mouse speed and find the perfect movement speed that suited us. The mouse is very light and somewhat on the small side (or maybe we just have big hands), but it was comfortable despite being designed for use with either hand. We never lost the signal with either the mouse or keyboard while typing, which was good."

OCZ ZT Series 750w, 650w and 550w
     Fri, Jan 20 2012 | 12:01P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The OCZ ZT Series is very well priced and we were surprised to find the 550w model online for as little as $90. As tempting as that is, potential buyers could be even more tempted by the higher capacity units which are only a fraction more expensive. The 650w version for example costs just $10 more, while the 750w version is another $10 again.

This new series will reach the North American market next month; we were able to get a sample before its official release. Let`s see if the 650 W model is a good option."

Silverstone Strider Gold Evolution 1000 W @ techPowerUp

Posted by: STAFF
Silverstone recently updated their PSU offerings with a new series, called Strider Gold Evolution. Besides the various internal component upgrades, which provide a small boost to efficiency and offer better performance, the new Striders are equipped with Silverstone`s Air Penetrator fan which features increased cooling along with lower noise output."

[DreamWare Computers] Silverstone Strider Evolution ST75F-G Power Supply
     Thu, Jan 19 2012 | 9:22A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A little over a year ago the Strider Gold line was released - this was Silverstone`s first entry into the 80PLUS Gold certified market of power supplies. The Strider Gold were well made, high performing and quiet operating power supplies. I actually still use a Strider Gold in one of my systems today. Looking to keep the Strider Gold as their `king of power supplies`, Silverstone has recently released the Strider Gold Evolution. The Strider Gold Evolution is quite simply an `evolved` version of the original Strider Gold. Silverstone has upgraded a lot of the internal components and re-designed the cooling system to make the Strider Gold even quieter and higher performing than it was before. Today I`ll be putting the new 750 watt Strider Gold Evolution up against my original Strider Gold to see if these upgrades are worth it!"

[Affiliates News] Thermaltake SMART 730W Power Supply Review @ APH Networks
     Tue, Jan 17 2012 | 9:45A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A couple of days ago, I sold my old dSLR body and lens locally through a popular online classified ads website. For the veterans among us, you will know this is usually a straightforward procedure -- someone contacts you, agree on the price beforehand, set a time and location to meet up, show them the product, and cash exchanges hand. But with anything that involves humans, there are always exceptions, and this is what I want to talk about this morning. The person I sold my camera to came with her mom in a late model, fully loaded Nissan Pathfinder SUV with a fancy vanity plate. After checking out the camera, her mom tried to pull a fast one on me, and said she only has $300 on her, and told me to just accept it. Well, as someone who is born in Hong Kong, the land of haggling masters, and a guy who has been in and out of car dealerships ever so often since I was nine years old, obviously it did not work. I have haggling, and thus, anti-haggling skills, in my blood. To make a long story short, she magically found the missing $20 in her purse, and we both went our ways. The way I see it, she probably thinks this was a smart thing to do. After all, she could have saved $20, right? Saving money is smart; this is more or less common sense to people of all ages. In the computer world, it is no different. But as most of us came to realize that not all power supplies are created equally, Thermaltake has a new line of PSUs called the SMART series to take on a very simple concept: Budget price, no frills, and eco-friendly performance. That`s smart. But is it right? We cracked open a Thermaltake SMART 730W to see what`s inside the brain."

Super Flower GOLDEN GREEN 1000W Power Supply Review

Posted by: STAFF
If you can`t afford to jump onto the 80Plus Platinum wagon and purchase one of the few power supplies with that certification currently in the market then you should really consider taking a look at the Golden Green 1000W 80Plus Gold certified power supply by Super Flower since it really combines excellent performance at a very attractive price point."

Posted by: STAFF
Today we?ll be looking at one of the many new power supplies released by NZXT. The NZXT HALE82 750W Power Supply is one of many 80PLUS certified power supplies recently released. All of the HALE82 series are 80PLUS Bronze certified and while the more efficient HALE90 series are all 80PLUS GOLD certified, which is pretty impressive coming from a company that mainly manufactures cases."

Seasonic Platinum 1000W Power Supply Review @ APH Networks
     Wed, Jan 11 2012 | 11:40A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Tell you what -- first review of the year, and we got something good in our hands. Late last year, there were some particularly unique power supplies released into the market; such as the Seasonic Platinum and Cooler Master Silent Pro Hybrid. Obviously, as you can tell by my hyperlink, the latter was already covered by yours truly back in November 2011. What is unique about these power supplies boils down to the fact that both PSU`s internal cooling fan can be shut off completely under relatively light loads. As a quiet PC enthusiast, this is like a gift from God himself -- fusing together a compromise-free solution by combining both power and silence into one single package. Unfortunately, it seems Satan had a hand in the Silent Pro Hybrid, because there is one problem with it: The fan control system goes bazerk sometimes. That`s too bad. So what we have here at APH Networks this morning is yet another product of similar ideas, but claims to have superior execution. Firstly, the Seasonic Platinum, as its name suggests, is 80 Plus Platinum certified. Secondly, the fan can remain off until 30% load is reached, which translates to 300W for our 1000W unit. Considering how most PCs don`t suck down 300W even under moderate loads, this is a very impressive and crucial figure. Therefore, without further delay, is the Seasonic Platinum 1000W a power supply from Heaven, pure and unadulterated? Read on to find out!"

Seasonic X-1050 1050W Power Supply Review
     Wed, Jan 11 2012 | 4:11A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As most would expect from an enthusiast grade power supply and from Seasonic, the X-1050 has a full complement of features. All protections are there including over temperature protection. The unit is rated for 100% continuous output at 50C and carries an 80Plus Gold rating. Months ago there were rumors that the X-1050 would be Platinum rated, but it looks like they weren`t quite able to make it happen. The Seasonic X-1050 is available at numerous places and can currently be had for $219.99 plus shipping at Newegg. That puts it squarely in the middle of the range for price when looking at 1000W units and with some more attractive features than the competition. Seasonic backs the unit with a five year warranty."

PC Power & Cooling Silencer MKIII Power Supply
     Tue, Jan 10 2012 | 7:35A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hoping to improve a good name, PC Power & Cooling (owned by OCZ) have recently released the Silencer MKIII line. The MKIII is very similar to the MKII in regards to it`s high quality manufacturing and strong warranty, but it also improves on the MKII in a couple very important ways. First, the MKIII claims to be up to 90% quieter per watt, which should hopefully deal with my complaint of noise from it`s younger brother. Second, PC Power & Cooling has now opted to make the Silencer series modular and the MKIII is debuting as the first modular supply in this line. Also sporting a more competitive price than the previous Silencer series, the Silencer MKIII is looking like a very promising power supply."

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.
