Kingmax Hercules PC3-17600 (2200MHz) 4GB Kit
     Mon, Oct 18 2010 | 6:26A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"A while back we saw Kingmax launch the new Hercules series of memory. It seemed to be a step forward in bringing the Kingmax name into the mouths of overclockers again. While the kit didn’t perform bad at all, the memory market is extremely competitive and it seemed like the kit never really got any legs. Today Kingmax intend to throw another kit at us carrying the same Hercules name. The kit carries with it also the same speed; 2200MHz DDR, which while not the highest we’ve seen, is sitting at the top of the pile and ready to take a whizz through our test regime today."

Internet Explorer 9 Beta Features and Benchmarks
     Thu, Sep 16 2010 | 12:05A | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

"In case you are living under a rock, IE9 Beta was released today. This browser is a major update to the previous version IE8. It is also supposed to give Firefox/Chrome a run for its money. How did it turn out? Read below to find out.

www.pcstats.com

So what are the best features of IE9? Lets give it a quick run-through then we are going to look at a few key features and a benchmark (note the benchmark is against a beta – so things may change).

Hardware accelerated HTML5 Support : This is absolutely the biggest reason to upgrade to IE9. This includes the new H264 Video Support, SVG and CSS3.
Brand new JavaScript Engine: Called Chakra. This will run on a separate core and allow you to render JavaScript faster.
DirectX Video Acceleration – This will use less of the CPU to render video. So far it has smoked Google Chrome while playing 2 720p videos at once.
Developers Tools added. Just hit F12 to access the tools.

What sucks? It's only supported in Windows Vista [SP2] and Windows 7."

DeepCool Gamer Storm Heatsink Reviewed on Frostytech.com
     Wed, Sep 08 2010 | 4:09A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.frostytech.com

The Deepcool Gamer Storm heatsink is a tower cooler standing over 155mm tall and weighing upwards of 1189 grams. At its heart are no fewer than six, 6mm diameter copper heatpipes and 48 aluminum fins. This is a hefty CPU cooler geared towards tackling thermal loads of up to 150W, with the minimum noise output its Beijing-based manufacturer can muster. As with DeepCool's other recent heatsinks, the Gamer Storm ships with a novel new fan that skips the whole rubber-fan-post fad and instead comes clad in a resilient layer of rubber.

Sapphire Radeon HD 5550 512MB GDDR5 OC Video Card
     Sun, Aug 29 2010 | 2:06A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Another HD 5550 utilizing GDDR5 memory has arrived and we'll be honest when we say it'll probably be one of the last unless someone does something that stands out with the model. We tend to only have a look at one or two of these low end models because we tend to find companies don't mix it up too much. Sapphire today have not only slapped a half decent cooler on the card, but also taken the time to overclock it. I didn't actually look at the specifications before checking out GPU-Z and I wondered if the OC was going to be the 20MHz or so we saw from GIGABYTE on the HD 5670 recently, or if it was going to be more. And if it was more, what would it actually do for performance? So often we find these low end cards with an overclock to be quite pointless. Let's find out what Sapphire has done, though, and what it means for you."

Lite-On iHBS112 12X Blu-ray Disc Writer Review
     Fri, Aug 27 2010 | 2:46A | Optical Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At time of writing, the Liteon iHBS112 is the lowest cost 12x Blu-ray burner on the market. With an MSRP of $150, it is nearly 50 bucks less than the Plextor PX-B940SA I recently reviewed. The iHBS112 provides the same level of performance, 12x BD-R write, 8x BD-R Read, 16x DVD±R read and write and 48x CD-R read and write, and comes bundled with a great piece of CyberLink software to help create movies, data discs and enjoy movies in both 2D and 3D. If you’re in the market for a Blu-ray burner today, this is definitely the hardware to consider.

     Fri, Aug 27 2010 | 2:46A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since AMD launched the Radeon HD 5770 graphics cards, a dual slot cooling system was the usual way OEMs equipped their products. Less than a year later, XFX goes a different way and reduces the size to a single slot.

Corsair now pushes the price down, without giving up the controller advantage. The Corsair Force F40 has to show, if it can compete with more expensive drives.

GeIL EVO TWO 4GB DDR3-1600 CL7
     Wed, Aug 25 2010 | 2:37A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“We're looking at a set of GeIL EVO TWO 4GB DDR3-1600 CL7 memory modules that may just be one of the best looking we've ever laid eyes on. Beefy, sleek, modern - the EVO TWOs look gorgeous. So, is beauty only skin deep, or in the case of these memory modules, metal deep? Or is there something more under the hood that will drive the performance to match the outward appearance?”

Icy Dock MB882SP-1S-1B 2.5" SATA SDD/HDD to 3.5" Converter Review
     Wed, Aug 25 2010 | 2:37A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Icy Dock MB882SP-1S-1B's function is simple, it converts any standard 2.5" HDD or SSD into a 3.5" drive. The MB882SP-1S-1B was also designed to fit the 3.5" form factor and emulate an actual 3.5" drive including rear connector and mounting hole alignment. This means that the MB882SP-1S-1B can be placed inside a another enclosure or a network attached storage or any hot swap bays that accept a standard 3.5"HDD. This unique flexibility in application separates it from other enclosures in the market."

Glacialtech Igloo 5751 PWM Heatsink
     Mon, Aug 16 2010 | 4:21A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.frostytech.com

The Glacialtech Igloo 5751 PWM heatsink is identical to its namesake in all ways except for the fans. Where the original Igloo 5750 PWM cooler had a matched set of 20mm thick 92mm fans running in balance with respect to airflow, the Igloo 5751 PWM Frostytech is testing today approaches things differently.
