Lian Li PC-V600F @ techPowerUp
     Mon, Nov 21 2011 | 5:40P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The PC-V600F takes the successful V1020 series and shrinks it down for the mATX crowd. We will take the case for a spin to make sure it did not lose any of the important features on the way and to see if the chassis is really worth more than 200 bucks."

Cooler Master Silent Pro Hybr id 1050W Power Supply Review
     Mon, Nov 21 2011 | 3:50A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The meaning of words change over time, and so does the value of things. For example, let`s take a look at the word apologize. According to Merriam-Webster, the definition we usually go by is an admission of error or discourtesy accompanied by an expression of regret. However, if you lived a few hundred years ago, the same word probably meant the defense especially of one`s opinions, position, or actions instead. Now with regards to the value of things, did you know that aluminum was worth more than gold before the Hall-Héroult process was invented? In fact, it was reported that Napoleon III of France gave a banquet where only the most honored guests got aluminum utensils -- the rest had to do away with, well, `inferior` metals like gold. So how does this relate to our topic today? When we mention the word hybrid, the first thing that comes to your mind is probably a Toyota Prius. Now I don`t know about you, but when I was younger, when we mention the word `hybrid`, it really means a combination of the best of both worlds -- not a car that robs you of your passion for driving in the name of saving gas. In the same way, would you rather have gold, or a hybrid? With the former still in excess of $1700 per ounce at the time of press, choosing gold probably makes a lot more sense. However, it does not take much to change one definition. In the past, we have reviewed both the Cooler Master Silent Pro M 1000W and Silent Pro Gold 1000W. With the top-of-the-heap Silent Pro Hybrid 1050W in our labs today, is it the product that takes back the definition and value implied by the word `hybrid`? Read on to find out!"

SilverStone Strider Gold 1200W Power Supply Review
     Sun, Nov 20 2011 | 3:32A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The SilverStone Strider Gold 1200W power supply delivers good efficiency with clean DC outputs and good voltage regulation. Under normal operating conditions the power supply is very quiet. The Strider Gold 1200W comes with a very good assortment of all-modular cables that can support the latest CPUs and multiple, high-end video cards along with active PFC and universal AC input. My only minor complaint is the 3-year warranty period."

OCZ ZS Series 650 W @ techPowerUp
     Sat, Nov 19 2011 | 4:59P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OCZ is very busy lately releasing new PSU models. Today we have the chance to test the OCZ ZS 650W. The main difference compared to the bigger ZS 750W, besides capacity, is the reduced number of available PCIe connectors, only two. Like all ZS units it has 80 PLUS Bronze efficiency, its OEM is Sirfa and it uses a non-modular cabling design."

FSP Aurum CM Gold 750 W @ techPowerUp
     Sat, Nov 19 2011 | 12:07P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
FSP decided to enrich the successful Aurum series with three new models that feature more wattages and a semi modular cabling system. The latter will be of great interest to many, since nowadays more and more users seek a modular PSU in order to avoid the extra effort needed for cable management with non modular units."

Enermax NAXN 650W Power Supply Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Fri, Nov 18 2011 | 5:04P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Enermax NAXN 650W power supply is amongst their most recent releases. The NAXN 650W is geared towards the average users, or budget gamers, that want to maintain excellent quality, while keeping costs low. The NAXN 650W power supply features an 80 Plus Bronze rating, meaning that can keep a 82-88% efficiency at 20-100% load. The NAXN is ErP Lot 6 2010 ready. This is a specification that can keep power draw to < 1W when running in standby mode. Most non compliant systems will run at around 4W. Built in is what Enermax labels HeatGuard. This keeps the fan running 30-60 seconds past shut down to ensure total heat dissipation. The NAXN has a silent 12cm fan for air movement and an AirGuard design to reduce noisy turbulence. / /*"

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.
