Silent Pro Gold 1000W power supply
     Wed, Feb 23 2011 | 4:32P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cooler Master already showed in our previous reviews, that they manufacture excellent power supply units and their Silent Pro Gold 1000W power supply underlines this impressively. The results are so impressive, that the Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold 1000W received the ocinside.de OverClocking Dream 02/2011 award. In the review we will examine, among other things, how high the current consumption is with this enormously high power of 1KW and if it is worth to buy such a PSU.

ASUS RT-N56U Dual Band Gigabit Wireless N Router Review
     Wed, Feb 23 2011 | 4:03P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The home networking market is one that is booming with technology, but is quite stagnant in terms of aesthetics. If you look things over you really are getting the same shell even if you get more features or more speed from your choice of router. It has gotten so bad lately that many people are not bothering to worry about "what it looks like" anymore. For us it has become like trying to describe cereal boxes. It is very difficult to find something new with each product we test. True, sometimes you get a flashy LCD screen, or different color lights, but that is about it. Enter the ASUS RT-N56U; this new product from ASUS is like no other networking product I have seen. In fact, at first glance you would never know it was a Gigabit, N-Spec, Dual Band wireless router with two USB 2.0 ports that can be used for networking, printing or to connect a USB HDD for network storage. It is also hard to believe that you get all of this for only $129.99 from Newegg.com. So now all we have to do is see if it performs as good as it looks. Here we go!"

     Wed, Feb 23 2011 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink

With the launch of NVIDIA's GTX 560 Ti, many thought that the GTX 460 1GB would go quietly into the night but that hasn't quite happened. This card has gained a new lease on life with a lower price point and products like MSI's Hawk Edition have continued to lead the way by offering high performance at a sub-$200 price point.

Icy Dock MB662USEB-2S
     Wed, Feb 23 2011 | 4:00P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Today we have an interesting brand landed on our doorstep; Icy Dock which a leading vendor for storage enclosures. If normal external storage is not able to fulfill your need and NAS is totally out of budget then you should probably take a look on MB662USEB-2S. This enclosure is a dual-bay 3.5" external HDD enclosure which supports RAID 0, 1 and JB"

OCZ Revo X2 240GB
     Wed, Feb 23 2011 | 12:03P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“OCZ is known for their SSD innovations, and the Revo X2 looks to be another in a long line, and the immediate successor to the original Revo, taking what was already a very fast drive and now putting it on nitrous. The Revo X2 acts like a bootable drive but looks like a card since it plugs directly into the motherboard, bringing a whole new level of speed into the mix. No worries about SATA restrictions here, folks.”

Posted by: STAFF
When it was originally released a few weeks ago, NVIDIA's GTX 560 Ti impressed us with its excellent performance coupled with a highly accessible price. NVIDIA's board partners have been quick to offer up some of their own custom overclocked versions and in this roundup we take a closer look at four such cards from ASUS, EVGA, Gigabyte and MSI.

Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex 500 GB Portable
     Wed, Feb 23 2011 | 9:01A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex family, you can opt for the Seagate GoFlex Desk 3.5" external drive if you want the large storage capacity possible and do not mind a larger form factor. If you prefer a portable drive, then you can go with either the Seagate GoFlex or Seagate GoFlex Pro 2.5" external drives. The difference between the two is that the Pro version has a dock and comes with premium backup and encryption software.

     Wed, Feb 23 2011 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
2011 is bound to be an exciting year for the graphics card market and it is already starting off in a big way with some heated competition between AMD and NVIDIA. Today AMD is officially launching their HD 6950 1GB which is supposed to compete with the new GTX 560 Ti at a highly competitive price point.

Intel Graphics On Linux Still Behind Windows
     Tue, Feb 22 2011 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Now that I finally have Sandy Bridge graphics working under Linux, thanks to another H67 motherboard and Core i5 2500K processor from Intel that don't exhibit the earlier problems, there's many Linux benchmarks available. Overall the Core i5 2500K graphics under Linux with the latest kernel / DDX / Mesa are fast, for being Intel integrated graphics and much improved over their previous generations of hardware. But how do these first-cut Intel Linux Sandy Bridge drivers compare to the drivers of the same age under Windows? In this article are benchmarks comparing the Intel Core i5 2500K graphics performance under Microsoft Windows 7 SP1 and Ubuntu 10.10."

Inno3D GTX570 1.25GB Review
     Tue, Feb 22 2011 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The GTX570 appears to be an amalgamation of several graphics cards in one on first impressions. Firstly, it features the tweaked GF110 core found in the GTX580. Like the GTX480, it has one stream multiprocessor disabled for a total of 480 CUDA cores and 60 texture units. And lastly, it sports the same memory bus and memory/ROP count of the GTX470, the latter feature being intrinsically to the memory. To compensate for the cut down core, the clock speeds have been increased to 732MHz on the core and 3800MHz on the memory. It is officially destined to be the spiritual successor to the GTX470, fitting in the same power envelope but from a performance standpoint, it is equivalent to the GTX480 without the drawbacks."

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.
