[Sep-04-14] (0 Comments)

Yesterday we had to turn on both air conditioners to keep thetemperature in our lab at 23 degrees in order to wrap up some tests sinceaccording to our Oregon Scientific weather station temperature outside wasroughly 33 degrees Celsius. Summer is (almost) over however and so i expecttemperatures to drop rapidly by the end of September which is good news forus since that will allow us to do our jobs easier. Now as most of you knowIntel announced their X99 mainboard chipset a few days back along with theirnew 59xx line of Core i7 CPUs and although we will not be reviewing either(well we may just review the mainboard model we will be using) we plan onreplacing our Core i7-920 system with a brand new Core i7-5930x one whichwill of course become our primary test rig and move our Core i7-3930x one insecond place. Until that happens however we will continue to test productswith our Core i7-3930x rig and today strapped on it we have the latestGradis XE1239 CPU Cooler by SilentiumPC.

[Aug-10-14] (0 Comments)

With the introduction of the first 120mm AIO (All In One)Liquid CPU Coolers a few years back regular users/consumers could now enterthe water cooling world without the extra cost and work required whenpurchasing a custom kit. Of course it may have all started with the two mostwell-known AIO manufacturers in the world (namely Asetek and CoolIT) whichin turn rebranded their solutions for a number of companies like Antec,Thermaltake and Corsair but now even more have joined up making the battlemuch fiercer than what it used to be. Competition is always a good thinghowever and so aside lower prices this has also brought forth theintroduction of 240mm and 360mm AIO liquid CPU coolers which in some caseseven offer performance comparable to custom water cooling kits. Thermaltakejust released the Water 3.0 Ultimate a massive 360mm AIO liquid CPU Coolerbut until that makes it here we decided to check their Water 3.0 Extreme240mm AIO liquid CPU cooling solution.

Crucial MX100 512GB SSD @ nikktech.com
[Jun-28-14] (0 Comments)

As technology progresses prices for current and previousgeneration devices keep falling and that has allowed solid state drives(SSDs) to become mainstream quite faster than many of us had hoped for whenwe first started to receive the very first ones to appear in the marketroughly 6 years ago. Of course compared to regular mechanical hard diskdrives (HDDs) the difference in price/capacity ratio is still somewhat largebut at least now one can get an high performance 256GB SSD model for lessthan 0.7$ per GB. Price however is not the only thing that has improved thestanding of SSDs in the market since with the appearance of 1TB models andthe recent announcement of 2TB ones professionals can now have superior read& write speeds at very large capacities (always compared to the past).Crucial just recently announced their own offering for such audiences themid-end MX100 SSD model which is currently available in 128,256 and 512GBcapacities (with us we have the 512GB model).

Be Quiet! Pure Power L8 700W Power Supply Unit @ nikktech.com
[Jun-24-14] (0 Comments)

With the rather recent appearance of 80 Plus Titaniumcertified power supply units in the market (some of which rated up to 1500W)hardcore overclockers and enthusiasts alike have found yet another reason toreach deep down their pockets for a brand new and rather costly upgrade. Forgood or bad the ultra-high-end power supplies cost quite a bit and in theend are mostly suited for use with really power hungry systems so casualconsumers have really almost no need for something like that. On the otherhand 80 Plus Bronze and Silver power supplies are far more affordable,feature quality components, come in both low and high power outputs andoffer very good performance levels. For the past 2 days one such solutionhas been lying on our test bench, the Pure Power L8 700W (L8-700W) PSU by bequiet!

Patriot SuperSonic Rage XT 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive @ nikktech.com
[Jun-20-14] (0 Comments)

Storage capacity needs increase on a daily basis and with themso does demand and thus in the end those two result in more competitionbetween companies and lower prices (at least most of the time). Think aboutit, just two years ago i was running around carrying an 16GB USB flash drivewith my keychain while now i have attached a permanent 32GB one which isometimes replace with an 128GB one if i need to carry way too much datawith me. The good news is that unlike a year ago today there are plenty ofUSB 3.0 compatible 128GB flash drives for one to choose from in the marketand so we took it upon ourselves to get our hands on as many as we can tocheck and see what you can expect in terms of read & write performance.Today on our test bench we actually have a familiar drive and morespecifically the highest capacity model from the SuperSonic Rage XT line byPatriot Memory.

QNAP SilentNAS HS-210 NAS Server @ nikktech.com
[May-22-14] (0 Comments)

Judging by sales numbers around the globe it seems that NASservers have finally managed to replace full computer systems in some areasdue to their size, low power consumption and easy to use menus andfunctions. This of course applies mostly to large enterprise environmentswhere several such devices get used and thus the benefits from the mentionedfeatures are even greater. Small business and home users also turn towardsNAS servers to cover their needs (mostly for office use) but to my knowledgeat least not many people actually choose to use NAS servers purely for theirmedia sharing capabilities and the ones that do never really place theminside their bedrooms to avoid getting disturbed by their noise levels (evenjust 20dBA is quite audible at night). QNAP is the first NAS manufacturer toaddress that issue by releasing the first dual bay model of the SilentNASseries called the HS-210.

A bare-bones system with no software installed located Crysis 3 on a Cloud gaming server, and within moments the player was earning frags (actually, he was desperately trying). On the surface this concept may not sound terribly interesting, but it stands to disrupt how we obtain and play video games and graphical design software. For desktop and mobile users software no longer is downloaded or installed; games and applications are essentially a click away.

Finishing up a run of new cases based on the Prodigy, BitFenix has started shipping their Colossus M. Taking its name from one of BitFenix’s first full-tower enclosures, the Colossus M inherits the original’s distinctive lighting and combines it with the familiar internals of the micro-ATX Prodigy M.

The RV04 forgoes the vertical orientation of the motherboard in previous Ravens and instead rotates it yet another 90 degrees. Utilizing a cooling design inspired by the impressive micro-ATX TJ-08E, the ATX Raven RV04 uses two 180mm AP fans in a slightly more traditional format ‚Äď well, as traditional as a Raven case can be‚Ķ

[Jan-08-14] (0 Comments)

The QNAP TS-470 Turbo NAS is part of a new model line that brings a higher level of performance to the small tower-based format. The TS-x70U rack mount series which launched earlier this year served up the basic technology package that’s been slimmed down here, in order to fit into the smaller form factor. The new TS-x70 towers are being promoted as business-class NAS servers, based on their high performance and networking package, but QNAP includes an HDMI port and IR receiver for good measure. Also included in the base package is a 2-port GbE NIC, installed in the PCIe expansion slot. Most business users will be able to increase the network throughput of this NAS with Port Trunking, thereby making effective use of all four GbE ports on the rear panel. Those who need more bandwidth can just replace the 2-port NIC with a 10GbE model.

Benchmark Reviews will find out if the Nepton 280L can handle an overclocked FX platform and see how it stacks up against the competition.

Phanteks Enthoo Primo Case @ benchmarkreviews.com
[Nov-20-13] (0 Comments)

When it comes to high-end full-tower cases, a few models immediately come to mind:Corsair’s 900D, Thermaltake’s Level 10 GT, Cooler Master’s HAF-X, and a couple others. There isn’t nearly as much variety for E-ATX compatible cases as there is for cases that support ATX and Micro-ATX motherboards. Perhaps this why Phanteks was keen to release their first case into this category. Enter the Enthoo Primo, A premium full-tower aluminum body case with numerous new features and great compatibility for water-cooling hardware. Phanteks is among the best manufacturers of computer case fans and CPU heatsinks, so one would expect that their genius in cooling innovation would carry over to the Enthoo Primo. It is quite clear that Phankteks aims to make a statement with this new case; It will be competing head on with the already established high-end full-tower cases. Benchmark reviews will take a closer look at the Enthoo Primo (model PH-ES813P) to see whether or not Phan!

[Nov-18-13] (0 Comments)

A very special new piece of hardware technology has recently been released at a conference in Montreal on October 22, 2013. The new technology is called G-SYNC, by NVIDIA.

The Kublai series of cases fits right in between the Precision and Temijin lines of enclosures by SilverStone. Losing some of the Temjin‚Äôs aluminum construction but retaining most of the innovative features of the more expensive line of towers, the KL04 is the fourth iteration of a chassis that began in 2007 and was notable for its storage capacity in a mid tower form factor. Looking to continue the tradition, the SilverStone Kublai KL04 uses a slightly different cooling arrangement and understated design to offer space for nine 3.5‚Ä≥ drives, along with four external 5.25‚Ä≥ bays and room for six 2.5‚Ä≥ drives. That‚Äôs a lot of storage in a mid tower ‚Äď can it keep everything cool? Benchmark Reviews is ready to find out!

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Video Card @ benchmarkreviews.com
[Nov-07-13] (0 Comments)

NVIDIA tends to dominate the field when it comes to graphics processing power, leaving AMD scrambling to remain competitive by reducing prices on their products to add value for an aging technology. Recently the AMD Radeon R9 290X was revealed as the brand’s flagship graphics card, virtually occupying future shelf space for around $599 and expected to compete against NVIDIA’s less-expensive GeForce GTX 780 that has been available since May (2013). Not one to allow competition into their high-end territory, NVIDIA pushes back with the introduction of GeForce GTX 780 Ti. Capable of producing the fastest and most efficient graphics power ever available, GeForce GTX 780 Ti offers 25% more processing cores than GTX 780 while leaving room to deliver record-level 336 GB/sec GDDR5 memory bandwidth so to leave no doubt who controls the top-end of discreet graphics.

[Oct-18-13] (0 Comments)

To get the most out of the CrossFade M-100 Headphones you will be wise to also invest in a headphone amplifier. The sound output from today’s smartphones might be enough to crap out your average best buy $10 headphones, but it just isn’t enough to get a truly satisfactory experience on a higher quality set of headphones let alone the CrossFade M100′s. A lot of attention has quite rightly been given to sound quality and performance with equal attention also given to build quality and style. Don’t get me wrong, the experience is not disappointing by any means, I just need to point out that the dual-diaphragm 50mm drivers inside the CrossFade M-100 Headphones are so much more capable than you may think.

I’ve never been a big fan of headsets. Instead, I’ve always tried to use a speaker system whenever possible. After my fourth kid was born a few months ago, however, my home office was converted into a nursery. That meant that my trusty 5.1 surround speaker system that had traveled to Iraq and back with me, was now a set of paperweights. Since then, I’ve become somewhat of an audiophile, seeking the most comfortable headset that produces the highest quality sound for the best price. Recently, Benchmark Reviews received the CM Storm Pulse-R Aluminum Gaming Headset SGH-4330-KATA1 for testing.

[Sep-26-13] (0 Comments)

Some of the most difficult to answer questions in the enthusiast and high-end gaming PC world have to do with RAM, and more specifically with RAM clock speeds, latency, and timings. What differences do all of these make when it comes to better performance and higher frame rates in games? Typically, the answer is that they do very little when it comes to games. AMD has sought to change that answer with the release of their Richland series APUs, which are designed to take even more advantage of RAM speeds and support up to 2133MHz clock speeds. Intel’s Haswell now supports speeds of up to 1600MHz. Now that more is being done to increase the performance gain from higher RAM speeds, let’s take a look at the results.

Some of the most difficult to answer questions in the enthusiast and high-end gaming PC world have to do with RAM, and more specifically with RAM clock speeds, latency, and timings. What differences do all of these make when it comes to better performance and higher frame rates in games? Typically, the answer is that they do very little when it comes to games. AMD has sought to change that answer with the release of their Richland series APUs, which are designed to take even more advantage of RAM speeds and support up to 2133MHz clock speeds. Intel’s Haswell now supports speeds of up to 1600MHz. Now that more is being done to increase the performance gain from higher RAM speeds, let’s take a look at the results. Here at Benchmark Reviews, we have a couple of new high-speed RAM kits to review. In this article, we will be taking a look at the Kingston HyperX 8GBx2 DDR3-2133 KHX21C11T3K2/16X kit.

ASUS PCE-AC66 Wi-Fi AC1750 PCIe Wireless Adapter @ benchmarkreviews.com
[Sep-16-13] (0 Comments)

The ASUS PCE-AC66 802.11ac wireless PCIe adapter is currently the only wireless adapter I know of, that allows you to experience the wonders of 3-Stream IEEE 802.11ac Wi-Fi. It won’t be the last, for sure, because the gains in wireless throughput are too good to pass up. There are several significant changes in the new 802.11ac standard, and upping the maximum allowable number of spatial streams is one of them. Theoretically, eight individual streams are supported by 802.11ac, but the new chips from Broadcom top out at three streams on a single IC. That’s enough to push 1.3Gbps across the airwaves on the 5GHz Wi-Fi band, which is probably where the consumer devices will stay. There are several wireless adapters on the market that are capable of handling two streams, but right now the PCE-AC66 is alone at the top of the 802.11ac heap, with three streams and the data rates to match.

[Sep-13-13] (0 Comments)

Since this is my first venture into building a system inside an M-ITX PC case I didn’t know exactly what to expect when I started out. I had certain expectations of the Lian Li PC-Q28; I knew it would take a full size ATX PSU (up to 17cm) and double slot video cards (up to 29cm long). The Lian Li PC-Q28 PC case, while small, has a large internal volume and will make for an excellent enthusiast M-ITX case with a few tweaks and mods. In this article Benchmark Reviews will hopefully provide answers to all of the questions you may have regarding the capabilities of the Lian-Li PC-Q28 Aluminum Mini-ITX Tower PC Case (model PC-Q28B), and more that you may have not considered.

Most people do not consider changing their computer monitor stand when it comes time to upgrading their system. This is understandable, as the device which supports your monitor is truly a behind the scenes system component. But depending on your setup, having the ability to pull your monitor closer to you, or float the display entirely off the desk is quite a useful feature. Wacom touchscreen owners have long realized the benefits of a flexible arm for precise ergonomic use of their touchscreen display. With the advent of Windows 8 and the trend towards touch enabled screens, having a flexible monitor arm suddenly becomes an important component in a desktop computer system.

When Intel sends out press samples of their new CPUs, they generally provide the top-end desktop products like the Core i7-4470K. And it’s fun to have the latest new super-fast processor to play with. But most people don’t need this level of power, and indeed in many cases even enthusiasts won’t make full use of the capabilities of a high-end part. Given that, might a less expensive, mid-range CPU be a better choice? Benchmark Reviews tests the mid-range Intel Core i5-4430 CPU, desktop processor model BX80646I54430, to find out.

Thermaltake Chaser A71 VP400M1W2N Computer Case @ benchmarkreviews.com
[Aug-21-13] (0 Comments)

As I am sure you are all well aware, the Thermaltake Chaser A71 is not the first chassis in the Chaser Series. Its direct predecessor, the A41, was a mid-tower addition to the Chaser Series that boasted some of the same features that are prevalent in the A71, such as great cooling, tool-less drive bays, and great cable management. And, it is not the first full-tower design in the Chaser Series. That distinction goes to the Chaser MK-1, which shares the same dimensions and has very similar features to the A71, including a top-mounted HDD hot-swap bay. Now, let’s move forward and take a closer look at the Thermaltake Chaser A71.

Have you ever felt that data stored on your external hard drives is unsafe due to the risk of dropping it, or getting it wet? Fear no more, ADATA has provided a solution in the form of their waterproof, shockproof HD710 portable HDD. Although it won’t protect your data if dropped from a rooftop or into a lake, you can rest assured that your data will be safe after minor drops and coffee spills. Following suit, ADATA has used an USB 3 interface to ensure speedy transfers with compatible machines. The HD710 is a little more expensive than other portable hard drives of the same storage capacity, it is therefore up to the consumer to decide whether or not the extra protection is worth the added cost.

Shooting Target Impact Signal System Bullet Hit Sensor @ benchmarkreviews.com
[Aug-16-13] (0 Comments)

In this article we field test the Target Impact Signal System III, model DK8-001-III, at ranges beyond 1500 yards. Firing a bullet out to extreme distances with precision accuracy has been the primary goal for sharpshooters since the rifle was first introduced. Modern military training produces lethal snipers skilled with deadly aim that can hit key targets located so far away the shot goes unheard. Long-range shooting requires sharp skills and a high degree of understand to be proficient, but it requires repetitive target practice to ever become effective. To become well practiced it’s necessary to know if a shot hits its target, at distances where sight and sound of bullet impact fail to register. This is where the Target Impact Signal System aids shooters by flashing a strobe signal back to the shooter whenever a bullet hits its mark.

With the summer period already opening its arms to welcome u s more and more people are looking to buy wireless Bluetooth headsets for u se while in the house, on the go or while working out. Now although Jabra r ecently released the quite remarkable REVO wireless Bluetooth headset the m arket is not really filled with such solutions, at least not powerful enoug h solutions for people who really want to listen to their tunes without vol ume restrictions. Granted the REVO is perhaps the best Bluetooth wireless h eadset out there but its rather high price tag makes it very hard for peopl e on a tight budget to look at it as a valid solution so we searched around to find a Bluetooth wireless headset that shares most of the features foun d in the REVO but at half its price tag, if not less.

In this HD world we live in, having the latest and greatest display in which to fully enjoy this media has become the norm. With every release of a new device, it seems the display is the biggest improvement, with hig her resolutions and more pixels per inch being the specs that consumers cli ng to when deciding one versus another. With such an emphasis on visuals, w e cant afford to overlook the need for high quality speakers to fully enjoy the experience. There are numerous choices out there, and most are X.1 set ups. This is generally some number (i.e. X) of satellite speakers and a sub woofer (aka .1). The traditional 2.0 (no separate subwoofer) market has his torically been saturated with cheap speakersunfortunately that hasnt change d much with the emphasis on X.1 setups. So can a 2.0 speaker system cut it in todays market where so much emphasis is being placed on getting the most out of the HD media and high quality audio that is so readily available th ese days? Palo Alto seems to think so, and with their Cubik speakers they a re here to try and dispel multiple myths. Essentially, bigger isnt always b etter, and more speakers does not mean better sound.

  When i first start ed testing and reviewing hardware media players roughly 5 year ago Plasma a nd LCD screens were quite simple (just taking their first steps actually) w ithout the plethora of features one can find now even at mid-end, low cost models. Amongst those features are built in hardware media players which i was surprised to see that they are not that bad in reproducing Full HD 1080 p media content with quite good image quality. Of course as always the key players/manufacturers in the industry keep introducing new features so they can make their products more appealing to consumers but we always need to remember that one of their main goals is always to reduce the cost of their products (to increase profit) and so one can never really compare one of t hese low cost internal hardware media players with a retail model like the XIOS DS Media Play! by Pivos which we have here with us today since the dif ferences in specs are quite honestly somewhat vast.=0A =0A  =0AArticl e Link:   http://www.nikktech.com/main/articles/media-players/741-pivos-xios-ds-media -play-network-media-player=0A   =0AImage Link:  http://www.nikktech.com/main/images/pics/reviews/pivos/xios_ds/xi os_dsa.jpg=0A =0AA News Post Would Be A ppreciated.Thanks In Advance.=0ASincerelyNik Ka strantas=0ARemember To Send Us Your News At:news@nikktech.comContact Me Personally At:nikk@nikktech.c om(If you are sending us your news and they are not published p lease check with me)=0AThank you all for your support.=0A

Earlier on today we were invited to the GIGABYTE headquarters here in Taipei where we were told we would see the Taiwanese motherboard maker and its in-house professional overclocker HiCookie try to set a new world record for the Intel Core i7 3770K processor.Overclocking was done on the upcoming GA-Z77X-UP7 motherboard that is due to be released this coming Monday - GIGABYTE at the time of writing were not prepared to comment on pricing as it is yet to be 100% confirmed. However, you can expect the price to be fairly high as this is a board designed for overclockers and it has plenty of top notch features to help overclockers around the world set new performance records. In the video above I mentioned that the Z77X-UP7 is much like a Formula One car in its design theory.

With its wide availability, you may find yourself at some point contemplating taking the plunge and configuring a RAID setup on your own system.

Made For Call of Duty Gaming Keyboard @ tweaktown.com

Switching over to the keyboard we are about to be looking at should really be like changing the color of my T-shirt. By this I mean the feel of the keys, the layout and the keyboards functionality are all something I am fully aware of and used to using. This is not to say they are exactly the same, as there are distinct differences between this new sample and the G110 I have been wearing out over the past year with all of these reviews. With most samples there is a bit of a learning curve to get used to the product, or learn the nuances of the software, but since I have used Logitech products of all sorts over the years, the software side is nothing new to me either.Today we are going to be looking at the G105:Made for Call of Duty gaming keyboard. This means that you of course are getting all the basic functionality that the G105 offers as well as having a few cool additions. With my G110 the LED coloration is limited to red, blue and various shades of purple to illuminate the keys. With the COD MW3 version, everything is glowing green to resemble night vision technology, helping to immerse you into the gameplay. There are also two sets of grey keys to help guide your fingers in the dark to the WASD and arrow keys.

The Leo demo showcases a real-time DirectX 11 based lighting pipeline that is designed to allow for rendering scenes made of arbitrarily complex materials (including transparencies), multiple lighting models, and minimal restrictions on the number of lights that can be used - all while supporting hardware MSAA and efficient memory usage. Specifically, this demo uses DirectCompute to cull and manage lights in a scene. The end result is a per-pixel or per-tile list of lights that forward-render based shaders use for lighting each pixel. This technique also allows for adding one bounce global illumination effects by spawning virtual point light sources where light strikes a surface.

There were some advancements in the product versus itspredecessor, PowerDVD 11 - most notably automatic refresh rate switching,but the best part was that they gave me a copy to bring back and test on avariety of systems to provide a preview of what PowerDVD 12 has to offer.As much as I would have liked to publish this earlier, they asked that wenot until today. This turned out to be a good thing though, because therewas time to create a few videos and take a much more thorough look at theproduct than would have been possible otherwise; just keep in mind that thecopy that was tested was not the final revision so some of the issues maynot be present in the real release and I was not able to get the APK fortheir DLNA application for my Kindle Fire so that aspect will only becovered briefly.*ARTICLE URL:* http://www.missingremote.com/review/cyberlink-powerdvd-12

[Affiliates News] NZXT Source 220 Computer Case @ aphnetworks.com
[Jan-30-12] (0 Comments)

I am always amazed at how the political and economic system works in the United States. While I am not suggesting Canada is leaps and bounds better, it is interesting how the United States government would even consider the SOPA and PIPA bills. On the technology side, blackouts were the main method of protesting, and in the end, it proved to be highly influential. Not only did it draw tons of support, but most importantly, it made many people aware of the issues and reduce the likelihood of similar future incidents from happening. With that in mind, probably completely unintentional, the NZXT Source 220 is like the blacked out version of the NZXT Source 210 Elite. Having a completely black theme without the option for a white variation, I guess the value budget consumer will have to lose out on customization. By having no other options, you might get the feeling of being forced to accept the chassis as it is; however, I am pretty certain that there will be significantly less controversy over the Source 220 than the previously mentioned bills. Today, I am not here to talk about either the SOPA or PIPA bills. Instead, we have ourselves a revision of the NZXT Source 210 Elite to discuss. Now of course, just like I would hope with any revisions to SOPA or PIPA, there should be some significant improvements over the previous version. One last note, I do not support SOPA or PIPA, and I am very thankful for the turn of events related to those bills.

Noctua NF-F12 120mm PWM Fan @ viperlair.com
[Dec-15-11] (0 Comments)

All in all, there is plenty on offer from the Noctua NF-F12 120mm P WM Fan and frankly their needs to be. At around £17 UK or $25 US it is a comparatively expensive item. Value is going to be subjective here though. The Noctua NF-F12 120mm PWM Fan is very quiet in operation, even at full sp eed and what little noise it does make is a slightly deeper tone than most other fans. Despite running at a low noise, it can still push a fair amount of air through restrictive items. You can further decrease the 1500 RPM to 1200 RPM via the included L.N.A. (Low Noise Adapter) and still maintain si milar performance. Also, Noctua have seen fit to give the NF-F12 120mm Fan a short 4 wire PWM power cable for CPU cooler use as well as a much larger sleeved extension cable. You also get regular fan screws and rubber bolts t o mount the Noctua NF-F12 120mm PWM Fan with.

Phanteks PH-TC14PE CPU Cooler @ tweaktown.com
[Dec-01-11] (0 Comments)

While the basic concept and design of this cooler is based heavily on the already famous D-14, there are no ties between it and what we are about to look at from Phanteks. Phanteks actually looked beyond the limits that Noctua set with the D-14 and into every possible way to improve on the basic concept.Today we are going to get up close and personal with one of the four PH-TC14PE coolers being sold. More specifically, we are going to test the PH-TC14PE_BL, or an electric blue colored version. Let me set the stage a bit here. Not only did I get the PH-TC14PE and its pair of included fans, Phanteks also sent along a third fan that matches the two supplied in the box, but in its own retail packaging. So right when you thought the D-14 made a motherboard disappear, just wait until you see the PH-TC14PE with three fans installed on my GIGABYTE later in the review!

Then again,purchasing two of the N580GTX Lightning Xtreme Edition cards will seta user back $1198 (give or take a few dollars). This card is not forthe faint of heart, or those light of wallet.

Speculation about latency between render and gameloops aside the implementation looks quite sound and allows users withon-processor graphics to not need to waste precious cycles (especiallyon GPUs that you would see on-processor) with antialiasing and insteaduse it more on raising other settings including resolution itselfwhile still avoiding jaggies.

However, that in itself is not quite strictly true as without a CPU cooler your processor will overheat within seconds but without a case fan you will struggle to remove any heat removed from the CPU and of course then no more heat can be removed. More simply put, it is essential to have good airflow through the case to remove the heat build-up else your CPU cooler wonít be able to operate.

OCZ Technology Agility 3 240GB @ tweaktown.com
[Jun-08-11] (0 Comments)

I started testing the OCZ Technology Agility 3 a couple of weeks ago, but before writing it up took a few weeks to reflect on my findings. While away, I saw one of the greatest finishes ever at the Indy 500 unfold right in front of me and my wife and I welcomed a new addition in our hearts. Even with all of these events going on around me, the Agility 3 was on the back of my mind.On the surface the OCZ Agility 3 looks like a great bargain, just like the Agility 2. You get a SandForce SF-2281 controller, the same used in the award winning Vertex 3 and the same great 3 year warranty. When the Vertex 2 and Agility 2 were launched over a year ago, the differences were in the programming and the Agility 2 was great value given that you got the same level of performance once the high IOPS burst of the Vertex 2 passed.

This past 12 months has seen a lot of new products for AMD in terms of processors, the Fusion platform and of course graphics cards. The HD 6870 has been a top seller for them since its initial launch and have kept a steady growth of sales even with higher end competitor cards being released. As with most graphics cards that are released, a reference design of sorts is used to show the performance and a custom design card follows on later down the line. The HD 6870 saw a massive boost in sales when custom coolers were strapped to the cards and with HIS branding their IceQ X fan and heatsink, it proves our point to the letter.

The magic amount used to be 4GB and it seems to be increasing to around 8-16GB especially with Microsoft pushing 64bit. Fortunately Crucial has put out a 8GB sport kit with surprising results.

HIS 6790 IceQ X Turbo Graphics Card @ viperlair.com
[May-16-11] (0 Comments)

This makes it a good base for the HIS 6790 IceQ X Turbo Graphics Ca rd which expands on this with uprated Core and Memory clocks. A default car d comes clocked at 840/1050 while the HIS 6790 IceQ X Turbo Graphics Card c omes out-of-the-box at 900/1100. We also managed to squeeze a little extra from the Core and took our sample to 920. Not a particularly large increase , but the memory jumped all the way to 1200MHz without issue. In games, the HIS 6790 IceQ X Turbo Graphics Card does very nicely, and would suit a sin gle 1080p monitor well. Despite this, the HIS 6790 IceQ X Turbo Graphics Ca rd does have all the ports and features needed for some Eyefinity action, a lthough I would expect to see a need to run at reduced detail settings for the higher resolution.

In the end, this is a simple 100 MHz increase in clockspeedfor AMD for their high end quad core processor. It is not all thatmuch faster than the previous X4 975, but at least it does not consumeall that much more power than the previous model. It is a goodall-around performer, and would make a solid foundation for aproductivity and gaming machine for most users. Invariably though,most eyes are drawn to the horizon and the promise of Llano andBulldozer. Hopefully for AMD these next generation processors willallow them to more adequately compete with Intel when it comes to rawperformance.

When the drive is powered a tiny white LED glows to show that the system is actually powered on.

Certainly AMD will not overtake Intel, but we asconsumers do need a strong and competitive AMD for the sake of our ownwallets.

In 1995, a Texas business man bought the rights for the DeLorean brand and all the inventory of the short-lived company. Through the DeLorean Motor Company you can buy an original 1982 DeLorean DMC-12,†buy a†brand new DeLorean,†built from scratch using new parts, or repair your used DMC-12. If this story wasn't amazing enough, a guy built a replica of the DeLorean used in the Back to the Future movies and is selling at eBay for USD 450,000. Yes, you read it right. According to the owner, it took him eight years to complete the project. The replica is really impressive (see video below), but c'mon†the original K.I.T.T. was sold for USD 30,000. PS:yes, if I had space to put them†I'd buy both KITT and a DMC-12.

Swiftech Polaris 120 High Performance CPU Cooler @ tweaktown.com
[Mar-28-11] (0 Comments)

It looks like a few things have changed over at Swiftech since the last time I visited their site and had the pleasure of testing, and still using to this day, the H20-320 kit they introduced back in November of last year. A couple of weeks ago I started getting correspondence of this new cooler in the works from Swiftech, and to my first surprise, it‚Äôs an air cooler. Now I‚Äôm not positive you all remember the MCX series of air coolers from a few years ago. While the idea was very different, and the thinking was outside of the box in its design, the cooler had limited success, and I don‚Äôt remember it being highly recommended as were the other leaders in that day of air cooling.Then came the second surprise! When I saw the cooler design I got a big grin on my face. There are quite a few tricks implemented in this design that I have seen make successful coolers before. To be honest, as I look at this cooler I am reminded of the Thermolab BARAM for the compact nature of the fin arrangement. Then again, I am reminded of coolers like the XtremeGear HP-1216 or SilenX variation of the same design. To say this new cooler ‚Äúcopies‚ÄĚ any of those is a bit of a stretch, but I can see the influence of many coolers of days gone by in this design, but that wasn‚Äôt good enough for Swiftech.

Personally I like the card. I was disappointed I could notmod it successfully to a HD 6970, but even in stock form the card isnot slow. I am doing some =93long term=94 testing on this particularmodel in my main machine, clocked at a much more mundane 900 MHz coreand 1350 MHz memory. This has provided a nice performance boost, allthe while producing less sound than the more aggressive overclock Idid while testing. So far the card has worked flawlessly at thisspeed, and it has handled every application I have thrown at it withaplomb.

I am glad to see AMD really embracing the overclocking mindsetin both its CPU and GPU divisions as well. AMD has been offeringunlocked processors for quite some time and with previous Radeonreleases and now the new HD 6990 offering, the engineering andmarketing teams continue to strive to beat out the competition inanyway they can. By installing a switch on the card that nowbasically overclocks the clock speeds and moves the power consumptionbeyond approved levels, AMD is enabling consumers that WANT to pushtheir hardware the option to do so, and for that, we at PC Perspectiveare very grateful.

AMD Responds to the Sandy Bridge Bug:Marketing ramps up... but new @ pcper.com
[Feb-19-11] (0 Comments)

The biggest potential win for AMD would have been a successfulAM3+ motherboard launch, but they still were not able to move up thatparticular product. If AMD had been able to come out swinging withthis new socket, and new motherboards designed around it, we couldvery well have seen a much more significant boost to AMD. While thereare no Bulldozer nor Llano based chips available, AM3+ boards dosupport current AM3 processors. Releasing the high end 990FX andbudget 970 boards, neither of which utilize the integrated graphics ofLlano, and populating them with current Phenom II and Athlon II CPUscould have provided a nice impetus to AMD and given the company amarketplace more prepared for the new CPUs to arrive later thisSpring.

Mitsuba DC500T 5MP Digital Camera @ monster-hardware.com
[Feb-14-11] (0 Comments)

Mitsuba has chosen to label this camera as being 12MP on several places on the box. While the true optical resolution of the DC500T is only 5MP, the 12MP figure is obtained through interpolation. Since the Mitsuba does this interpolation in the camera I suppose the 12MP figure is technically correct, but its use here is obviously meant to mislead the user into thinking they are getting a much higher end camera.

The Noctua NF-S12B FLX 120mm Fan is the latest release in a series of popular fans designed for the noise conscious system builder from the Austrian specialist company Noctua. A previously small niche company synonymous with low noise fans has recently grown to prominence due to their high performance NH-D14 dual radiator heatsink which took the market by storm. This single product has given the company exposure to the performance enthusiast market that Noctua was never really targeted in the past.

When I first started to hear about GPS software making its way to the App Store, I found myself excited. It was going to be nice to get rid of the TomTom I had in the car. Sure, I loved it, but it would battle with the iPhone for power. Also, after my car was broken into once because it had the holder for another TomTom I had, I never liked having the suction cup holder on the window.

Super Flower Golden Green SF-800P14XE 800W Power Supply @ tweaktown.com
[Feb-11-11] (0 Comments)

Most in the USA will not have heard of Super Flower before, but chances are that you have owned a power supply that was designed by or designed in conjunction with Super Flower. They are a huge OEM outside of the USA and, since their expansion in 2006, are becoming more prominent in the United States. Over the years they have manufactured and worked with numerous companies to produce power supplies such as TTGI, Kingwin, NZXT, and more.The Super Flower PSU that we are taking a look at today is the SF-800P14XE. This is the 800W model in the Golden Green lineup. The Kingwin Lazer series and NZXT HALE-90 series are derivatives of the Golden Green series of power supplies, so you should expect performance to be similar to the NZXT HALE-90 850W PSU that we reviewed.

Corsair SP2500 2.1 Speaker - Corsair enters another market @ pcper.com
[Feb-10-11] (0 Comments)

This is something of a niche system. Most users will balk atpaying $250 for a set of 2.1 speakers. Then again, there are thosewho do take audio much more seriously than others. While $250 is alot of money, I feel that Corsair delivers a product worth every cent. I have been following computer audio since the days of those tiny,tinny 2.0 speakers that were battery powered. The jump to the AltecLansing ACS-31s was massive from those terrible speakers. Now as weenter 2011, I can honestly say that these are the most accurate, wellrounded, and best engineered desktop speakers that I have yet heard.

NZXT Bunker USB Locking Device @ tweaktown.com
[Feb-03-11] (0 Comments)

Since NZXT has made just about every case style imaginable, they, like many other companies, are doing quite well with case accessories. They have already offered the Sleeved LED kits, and I seem to see them in quite a few case mods these days. Whether under the motherboard or around the open side of the chassis as case lighting, they have been a great success. There was also the IU01 USB Expansion device that offers connections for up to three more USB connections from the front panel, but also added a pair of USB 2.0 connections on the end. The idea was to add a power line to dedicate more power to drive all the devices we tend to hook up to our computers these days.Speaking of USB connectivity, that brings me to the product we are taking a closer look at today; the Bunker from NZXT. This device not only will add four USB 2.0 connections to the front of any chassis via the use of a 5.25

SRAA targets deferred-shading renderers, which cannot use multisample antialiasing. SRAA operates as a post-process on a rendered image with superresolution depth and normal buffers, so it can be incorporated into an existing renderer without modifying the shaders.

In fact, with Cool n Quiet enabled the fan is eerily silent and easily able to handle the Phenom II overclocked to 3.8GHz @1.5 Vcore on all four cores. Combine that with the excellent new design, proven reliability from Arctics previous products and a retail price below £25 - the Freezer13 truly is the bang for buck king!

The intention is to help users get the maximum visual benefit of Tessellation, while minimizing the impact on performance. Currently no applications have been profiled, so the “AMD Optimized” setting will be non-operational until further notice.

Service Pack 1 (SP1) for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 includes previously released updates and delivers a number of powerful new features for Windows Server 2008 R2 for virtualization and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI). New techniques in memory management with the addition of Dynamic Memory functionality, as well as the ability to deliver full-fidelity graphic experiences in remote and virtualized environments with RemoteFX, enable organizations to realize the greatest possible potential from their infrastructure. Microsoft continuously collects feedback on Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 operating systems from its customers and partners. This feedback results in enhancements that help improve compatibility, reliability, performance, and user experience. These enhancements are typically made available in the form of regular updates delivered via Windows Update and, in some cases, the Microsoft Download Center.

Asus Crosshair IV Extreme:More Lucid for AMD @ pcper.com
[Jan-01-11] (0 Comments)

Asus makes a pretty mean board, and by using the Hydracontroller it is allowing multi-GPU with NVIDIA cards on the AMDplatform to continue. Eventually the older NVIDIA 980 and 750 SLIchipsets will go away, and when that happens then it is unlikely thatNVIDIA will grant AMD a SLI license for their chipsets. Asus and MSIare both investing a lot into Hydra, and with an entity the size ofAsus on board, we can expect to see much better driver support andimproved performance over the next several months. We have alreadyseen Lucid increase its driver release rate in the past six monthswith all of the support (and pushing) they are likely getting fromthese large manufacturers.

Over the past couple of years we have tested our fair share of ASRock nettop systems. You may remember them as they have developed over time. The small black or white rectangle boxes with loads of goodies packed inside a small box. We started with the ION 330 which was more or less a basic system with the home theater capability, then we moved onto the ION 330HT which was designed more for the home theater user in mind and then this year the Core 100HT-BD which again saw new HTPC improvements and faster performance.Fast forward a little and we see the release of the ION 3D Series from ASRock. Don’t let looks deceive you; it looks pretty similar to all previous nettop systems from ASRock, but what is going on inside the attractive and small case is what is important. As the name implies, the ION 3D comes with 3D playback support. This is thanks to the inclusion of the NVIDIA GT218-ION graphics chip that is NVIDIA 3DTV Play capable.

Antec High Current Gamer 900W Power Supply @ pcper.com
[Nov-17-10] (0 Comments)

Overall the HCG-900 900W PSU proved to be a good performerdelivering excellent AC ripple suppression, quiet operation and goodefficiency at an affordable price. I was a little surprised to findonly one 8-pin EPS12V connector instead of two and only four PCI-Econnectors instead of six on a 900W PSU. I suppose most gamers willmost likely be interested in powering a single CPU system with dualhigh-end graphic adapters so supplying the extra cables might beconsidered overkill. This also helps differentiate the High CurrentGamer series from the High Current Pro series, which does offer morecables/connectors.

[Nov-11-10] (0 Comments)

Zacate is the full 18 watt TDP part, and it will run at 1.6GHz for the core CPU speed, and 500 MHz for the DX11 GPU portion.That graphics portion is made up of 2 x 80 unit SIMDs, so it has agrand total of 160 stream processors. If these follow the standardlayout, each SIMD unit will also have 4 x texture units attached, soessentially double the texturing power as a AMD 880G integratedchipset, and four times the stream count. It is quite anaccomplishment to have this much stuff, running at those clockspeeds,yet still only have an 18 watt TDP. Ontario has the same basicmakeup, but is rated at 9 watts.

AMD was likely losing ground in the $200 segment and becauseof that felt the need to get a reply out sooner than its originalschedule had intended. That is good news for gamers:now we havebetter, lower cost options from AMD and also a forced hand from NVIDIAthat caused a price drop on the GTX 460 lineup. If I was given a $220budget today and asked to pick between the AMD or NVIDIA options, Iwould probably lean towards the AMD HD 6870 if only for the triplemonitor support; other users might value the ability to run some sortof 3D Vision gaming and PhysX titles better on the NVIDIA cards. Itis a cop-out, but all of these cards are good options.

The DXG-595V is somewhat picky about SD/SDHC support. When I first got the DXG-595V I had so many problems with spotty card usage that I actually tried to contact DXG customer service to see if there was a firmware update or at least a SD/SDHC compatibility list available. After several weeks DXG never bothered to respond to my inquiries but between Geeks and myself we determined that the DXG-595V requires SD/SDHC Class 6 media to operate. This means that those of you with older SD/SDHC Class 2, or 4 media laying around may be out of luck and have to purchase newer SD/SDHC Class 6 media.

[Affiliates News] Arctic Cooling ARCTIC K381 Keyboard @ aphnetworks.com
[Sep-07-10] (0 Comments)

The world of technology has changed greatly within the last couple of decades -- from the good old video cassette player and monochromatic televisions, to the latest high definition LED backlit LCD flat panel televisions, Blu-ray players, and high performance surround sound systems -- it is so easy to overlook how far we have come. Many of us who are technology enthusiasts can relate to this, and I am no exception. I have dedicated myself more towards the line of computer hardware, and over the years, I have noticed many changes even to the standard QWERTY keyboard. From old school Microsoft units with big blocky keys to slim Razer keyboards with sleek backlit LED lights, I must admit, this humble but important computer peripheral which appears to be ever unchanging has experienced a significant degree of evolutionary development in recent times. And there are many types of keyboards. Some are made for professional gamers, and yet others are made for hardcore productivity users. Most of the time, I have a tough time deciding between a very nice looking keyboard or a more practical one that I could comfortably use every day. Well, Arctic Cooling gave me somewhat of a surprise when they came up with their K381 keyboard. At first sight, it is clear that this keyboard is a slim, sleek, low profile, and down to earth keyboard. Is this the same keyboard that both suits the

In many ways the GTX 480 is more inline with the Radeon HD 2800XT than the aforementioned GeForce FX 5800in terms of designing a part a little too aggressive considering theprocess technology at hand. But the significant difference betweenthe GTX 480 and those products is that it actually performs where itshould, and is a class leader in terms of features and functionality.

The H55M-ED55 is a great example of their commitment to qualityboards that are geared toward overclockers and gamers. We saw goodperformance results in both of these categories during testing and wereimpressed with how flexibilty and feature rich the BIOS was. The onlycomplaints we could make about it would be the lack of USB 3.0/SATA3.0support, but most boards at this price point and class do not have thesefeatures standard. The OC Genie button was a great addition and should beused frequently by novice PC builders looking to squeeze a few moremegahertz from their Intel processors.

So at the end of the day how do the cards fall? In this little comparison the Zotac GeForce GTX 470 video card walks away with the performance crown and with the promise of further extending this lead in the $350-$400 price segment. If you are willing to stomach the power bill and ignore the furnace burning away in your case the Zotac GeForce GTX 470 looks like a very attractive option. If you are a bit conscious about your power consumption though it may be worth paying a slight premium now for the ATI Radeon HD HD 5870 or purchasing the less expensive Radeon HD 5850. Keep in mind though how often you run your system loaded versus at idle. So in conclusion the Zotac GeForce GTX 470 video card is awesome albeit hot and a bit hungry...

[Jun-10-10] (0 Comments)

The MSI Big Bang XPower will support up to six single slot graphics cards for some hefty multi-monitor use. It also supports the latest Quad-SLI and CrossFireX technology from NVIDIA and ATI. If you are looking to do some extreme overclocking with the new Intel Core I7 980X you will need a board that can supply enough power. Under Extreme overclocking conditions the I7 980X can draw around 480 Watts, which is too much for a single 8pin cpu connector to supply. The MSI Big Bang XPower was designed for such a circumstance! The keen folks over at MSI added a second 8pin CPU connector to the Big Bang XPower! There should be no issues with power when pushing the latest processors to the maximum frequencies. They also decided to add a 6pin PCI-e which will aid when overclocking the graphics cards!

Some six months later, the green campfinally had a product fit for launch. The GTX 480 was just that.Unfortunately, whilst performance levels were reasonable, high powerconsumption, high temperatures, high pricing and a noisy stock coolerultimately cost Fermi and Nvidia.So the HD 5870, endorsed by Fermi’s poor showing, is many enthusiastsgraphics card of choice and as expected, the ATI vendors are quick torespond releasing factory overclocked and tweaked versions of theflagship card to heighten performance and lower noise levels andrunning temperatures.

[Affiliates News] Apex MW-107 mITX Computer Case @ aphnetworks.com
[Jun-01-10] (0 Comments)

I am not going to pretend I am an expert in the world of mini-ITX systems. Prior to writing and editing a good series of such reviews here at APH Networks for the past few weeks (And with many more to come), I certainly did not know there was so much I needed to learn! It is especially interesting to note how different reviewing is in the mITX realm, as compared to my usual role in evaluating desktop-standard performance components. This is still the case even when small things like power supplies are concerned: the Jetway NC96FL-510-LF motherboard I reviewed last week features a built in DC to DC converter to eliminate the need of an ATX or ATX compatible power supply -- it is especially useful to save room and reduce complexity. But there are also boards that take standard ATX power input for wider compatibility. Then it comes to the chassis in which you want to install the motherboard. We have the Lian-Li PC-Q07 that takes standard components at the expense of larger physical size, the Thermaltake Element Q which features a built in SFX power supply to save room, and ultra compact cases such as the Apex MW-107 we are reviewing today that uses an external power adapter with an internal DC to DC converter for users who want a really compact system with maximum compatibility. All of this sounds great -- but how well does the Apex MW-107 step up in real life? We took the liberty to find out all the answers for you today.

Danger Den NVIDIA GeForce GTX480 All Copper Water Block @ legitreviews.com
[May-22-10] (0 Comments)

Danger Denís DD-GTX480 all copper water block is one very nice addition to my EVGA GeForce GTX480 video card. Not only did it help cool the card better, but it also managed to eliminate the noise from the horridly loud stock fan. That in and of itself warrants the $135 price tag the all copper version we tested today carries. When it came to performance by water cooling the GeForce GTX 480 we were able to drop stock load temps from 92C to 49C, which is a drop of 47%. Reducing your temperatures by nearly half is amazing and anyone that is thinking about getting a GeForce GTX 480 should consider water cooling as an option as it really is nice. You get lower noise levels, possibly increase the longevity of the video card and are able to overclock it farther than you could on air for even better performance. Danger Den has done a great job on these blocks and you can tell from the second you pick the water block up that it you made a solid investment...

Kingston HyperX LoVo 1866MHz DDR3 4GB Memory Kit @ legitreviews.com
[May-06-10] (0 Comments)

The Kingston HyperX LoVo memory kit was great to review as we learned a number of things during testing the memory kit. The first is that not all motherboards have DDR3 (vDIMM) voltage settings that go low enough to support memory kits like this. This is an easy fix by motherboard manufactures, but it will require a BIOS update in order to support super low voltages like 1.25V. The second thing that we learned is that memory voltages and memory clock frequencies play a serious role in power consumption! To be honest we never looked that close at power consumption at various clock frequencies when keeping the vDIMM and memory timings constant. It was an eye opener to how big of a power consumption difference we were seeing at the wall when going from just 1333MHz with 1.24V to 1600MHz with 1.24V...

This patch isjustifiable since we believe if a user bought a GeForce card, heunquestionably deserves access to all its features.Now, it has come to our attention that EVGA is preventing users fromdiscussing the PhysX mod on their forums.

It doesallow AMD to be more competitive against the quad core i7 and i5 partsthough. The i7-930 is $295 and the i7-950 and i7-870 are over $550. Whencomparing price/performance, the 1090T is very competitive with the 930, andseriously wipes the floor with the 950 and 870 parts.

None of the specifications or performance results from the remainingnew Evergreen-based FirePro cards are going to set records but AMD is doingto this market what they did to NVIDIA on the desktop market - setsuper-aggressive price/performance targets that NVIDIA will have troubleeven coming close in matching. The new FirePro V5800 is a bargain at under$470 and the V3800 could set the professional world on fire selling for justabout $100.

Sincequite a few people were saying that Warband wasn’t much of a changeover the original game, I did my research into the series by playingaround ¾ of a year of Mount & Blade senior, checking out thedifferent features, learning the combat model and just getting a feelfor the franchise. Now I could go completely in depth with this reviewand describe every facet of Mount & Blade Warband and ispredecessor but that would take forever; really it’s a huge game. Soinstead I’ll focus on a few key points of the game, giving some prosand some cons and ultimately conclude it to see whether it’s worth itsprice tag.

Sapphire 5750 and 5750 Vapor X - XSs @ xsreviews.co.uk
[Apr-14-10] (0 Comments)

Stickingwith the Juniper core that we saw in the Radeon HD 5770,today’s review focuses on its little brother –the HD 5750. Just as the5770 was effectively half the 5870, the 5750 is half the 5850 utilisingthe RV840 core manufactured with a 40nm process. Essentially the ATIRadeon HD 5770 & HD 5750 models fill the mainstream segment of theDirectX 11 GPU market. Clearly nVidia’s launch of the GTX470 and GTX480cards is targeted at the high-end user and so ATI still rules the roostin terms of the mainstream and lower-end areas of the marketplace. So how will the 5750 compare to the 5770? We’ve got two versions to putthrough their paces both courtesy of Sapphire:the reference version ofthe card and a special overclocked Vapor-X model.

The inclusion of featureslike support for OpenGL 4.0 and DX11, not to mention support for up to fourdisplays in an Eyefinity configuration, really do make the V8800 stand outfrom the crowd of professional GPUs. I am sure we will be hearing more fromboth AMD and NVIDIA in the coming months when it comes to developer-basedgraphics solutions and software partnerships but for now, AMD has the strongadvantage.

When there was background noise, there was a light white noise sound that came through, but the call was crystal clear in a quiet setting. The white noise sound was definitely nothing that interfered with the ability to understand anyone, it was just a little observation made when critically listening at the call quality...

Remember when Bluetooth came out? No one bothered to care for a long time until an explosion happened a few years ago. We believe that Wireless USB is in the same boat. The technology solves a problem that people need; the ability to connect peripherals to their computer without a wire. It is just that we are suffering on the implementation and faced without market saturation, the Wireless USB field seems to be stagnating. There are glimmers of hope and Imation brings the first Wireless USB enclosure to the table.

A Deep Dive Into QNAP NAS Software @ tweaktown.com
[Mar-15-10] (0 Comments)

Testing NAS servers is a complicated and a time consuming task. For the most part modern NAS products are computers in their own right with some using Intel Core2 Duo processors and up to 4GB of RAM. When writing a NAS review itís easy to focus on the hardware and capabilities, but often the software, applications and setup functionality take a back seat even though these functions are just as important as the hardware.To help ease the strain on both the reader and the writer, today we are going to cover the latest firmware / software release from QNAP. Just weeks ago we ran a similar editorial on Thecusí software.

The nice thing about this fan is that it has mounting holes for both 140mm and 120mm, so it is backwards compatible.

The Imperator is a 3.5G laser mouse and is marketed as being the mouse for control, comfort and customization.Second up in the video is the Razer Vespula gaming mouse mat. For a long time Iíve been using a very large OCZ mouse pad that was given to me a while ago and itís been fine for basic Windows productivity. Itís been a while since Iíve used a proper gaming pad which includes the vast amount of features as the Vespula.

Intel Core i7-980X 32nm LGA-1366 Six Core CPU @ tweaktown.com
[Mar-11-10] (0 Comments)

In the current market our CPUs are multi-core. It is almost unheard of to have a CPU with a single core, unless you are buying a netbook or a very low-end system. Starting at the mainstream level the dual core is king. You find them in all shapes and sizes. Moving up, AMD has their tri cores. From there both AMD and Intel have quads and finally Intel has the quad with Hyper Threading; the 8 thread monster called the Core i7.Well, Intel is looking to add a new level at the very top. This is a 6 core, 12 thread behemoth called Gulftown. Once it hits the retail channels it will be the Core i7-980X. But Gulftown is more than just 6 cores on a CPU die. Intel has moved to 32nm and also stuffed in some new instructions (including AES encryption).

G.Skill PC3-18400 (2300MHz) PI Series 4GB Kit @ tweaktown.com
[Mar-10-10] (0 Comments)

When I think of memory companies that want nothing but speed, only a few really come to mind and one of them would have to be G.Skill. While so many companies these days produce high end memory, we only really see a few leading the pack and when I say that I mean we see the same few companies ahead of everyone with most other companies playing catch up when it comes to speed. While most companies are sitting around the PC3-17600 mark these days, G.Skill as always has kicked it up a notch with a PC3-19200 kit and a PC3-18400 one which we have on hand today. Like most high performance memory kits at the moment, the modules are aimed at P55 platforms due to them coming in dual-channel packets.

Since the board is passively cooled, you can pick other passively cooled or solid state components for a build that generates absolutely zero noise.

NAS File System Tests by Thecus Explored @ tweaktown.com
[Mar-04-10] (0 Comments)

A couple of weeks ago my curiosity turned a light working weekend into a full on charge in exploring the ins and outs of NAS server file systems. While testing the Crucial RealSSD C300, we moved away from the ASUS P6T7 WS SuperComputer motherboard that was used to test storage released products and started using the GIGABYTE X58A-UD7. This left me with a free system at a key time to start taking a deep dive into file systems on NAS servers.At first it started out as a harmless test with a single drive on a different file system to see what would happen to performance. Forty-eight hours later has evolved into a nonstop Bawls fueled obsession to see how much improvement we could find just by setting our NAS up differently.

Thermaltake is allowing me to have a look at another in the Element series of chassisí. If you remember from my last visit with one of the Element chassisí, the Element T, I was impressed with their work. That was a budget conscious chassis design, but still offered quite a bit of bang for the buck in the mid tower segment of the market.This time around we get to look at a full tower from the Element line that offers a bunch more room, a ton of features and much better airflow built in. Features include multi-colored LED lighting, a three fan controller built in and a somewhat tool-less interior just to name a few, but a key feature on this chassis we are about to look at is security.

Both the Gigabyte 890GPA-UD3H and ASUS M4A89GTD Pro/USB3 AMD 890GX-based motherboards that we looked at here today are both very solid motherboards and increase the level of performance that you can expect from an AMD motherboard. The faster and improved Radeon HD 4290 integrated graphics are more than enough to power your HTPC for Blu-ray playback and can even manage to do some light gaming on lower resolution. By adding in a Radeon HD 5870 graphics card like we did you find a very solid gaming platform that has all the latest features on the market, like SuperSpeed USB 3.0 and SATA 6Gbps. Our testing showed that USB 3.0 and SATA 6Gbps over significant performance improvements and should be considered for a system that you are building and planning on hanging onto for years to come...
