Sapphire Edge-HD Mini PC
     Wed, Feb 16 2011 | 12:00P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Housing an entire system in what is the smallest package we've ever seen, the Sapphire Edge-HD Mini PC appears to be a very capable little machine for consumers on a tight budget that don't have need of the cost or horsepower of a full-sized desktop system. But does smaller mean less, or do good things really come in small packages? Let's find out.”

Mionix Propus 380 mouse mat
     Wed, Feb 16 2011 | 9:03A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"While there are several companies that produce wide ranges of strong gaming peripherals, everyone tends to have a bit of a speciality. Razer for their mice, Speedlink for their headsets, Steelseries for their keyboards and personally I'd throw one more in there, Mionix for their mouse pads. Today I'm looking at the latest from some of the best cloth pad creators in the world. Propus is it's name, let's see if it stands up to the strong reputation of its predecessors. "

Lian Li PC-V354 MicroATX Mini Tower Case
     Wed, Feb 16 2011 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Lian Li PCV-354 is a larger version of the PC-Q08 with a few minor differences. The PC-V354 adds microATX support, an extra hard drive mount, two additional fans, and ships with a built-in memory card reader and fan speed controller. We take it for a ride in our anechoic chamber with some hot chic... uh, components.

Posted by: STAFF
"The ASRock P67 Pro3 is one of the most inexpensive socket 1155 motherboards based on the P67 chipset available on the market today. Let's see if it is a good option if you are building a PC based on the new "Sandy Bridge" processors and are trying to save money."

Posted by: STAFF
"Today in the latest of our Sandy Bridge articles we take a look at another aspect, performance when overclocked in a selection of synthetic and real world tests. To do this we will be using the MSI P67A-GD65 which has an excellent one touch overclock feature. Ideal for novice overclockers who want some extra performance and value from their system."

Posted by: STAFF
Although the Cooler Master GX 750W power supply unit comes nowhere close to being whisper quiet during use still its good rail stability and adequate electrical efficiency combined with a very attractive price tag and a 5 year warranty make for a fine choice.

RunCore Pro V 120GB Solid-State Drive Review
     Tue, Feb 15 2011 | 6:30P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The RunCore Pro V 120 SSD is one of the few drives to come with the ability to connect to a USB port which is nice for data migration. They make it easy to do. The SATA II to USB connector just needs to be attached and fitted into the chrome piece and then the entire enclosure screws together. Performance will be severely hampered because of the limited bandwidth of USB 2.0 so nix any ideas of using it as an external USB drive ongoing - it would just be a waste of a good drive. Outside of the enclosure, the drive is very attractive. If you are into bling, the engraved brushed aluminum shell may ring your bell. As far as the SATA II performance goes, we saw greater performance than the 260MB/s read/write specifications RunCore lists in their specifications. In the ATTO benchmark, we saw closer to 275MB/s writes and 285MB/s reads. Overall, its well on par with the other SandForce drives we've tested as we anticipated as the drives push the SATA II bandwidth limits already so its nearly impossible to do any better..."

Thermaltake BlacX 5G Hard Drive Docking Station Review
     Tue, Feb 15 2011 | 6:15P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Thermaltake BlacX 5G Hard Drive Docking Station is a dream come true for folks that want to set up a rotating drive backup scheme. You could backup to a drive for two weeks and then swap out the drive with a second drive while placing the first drive in a secure place. This would allow you to easily set up a disaster recovery plan for a home server without having to use a cloud based service if you so desired..."

MSI P67A-GD65 Intel Socket 1155 Motherboard Performance Review
     Tue, Feb 15 2011 | 6:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Whether you are an experienced overclocker or just getting into overclocking, the MSI P67A-GD65 should satisfy your urges for speed. Starting out with the OC Genie, which will overclock your system in only one second, we had a system that was overclocked to 4.2GHz, and was rock solid. Nothing like a little free performance with zero work. When I first started overclocking manually I was running an older version of the BIOS. With this version I was able to hit the same overclock with the Intel Core I5 2500K as we were able to previously in the ASUS P8P67 Deluxe article. Our previous best was 4824MHz on both of the ASUS boards that we have tested. Since then a new feature has been added within the BIOS for both the ASUS boards as well as for the MSI P67A-GD65. You can now have the Internal PLL Voltage either enabled or disabled. Once we enabled it within the MSI P67A-GD65 BIOS, things started to get just a little more interesting..."

Posted by: STAFF
"Right now, you can get the Patriot Box Office for under $80, and for a player that can play almost every format without a hiccup, it is well worth it if you are shopping for a set-top box. The newest firmware P61-R2 brings a totally new interface to the Box Office.

GIGABYTE E350N-USB3 Fusion Benched, Overclocked and Examined
     Tue, Feb 15 2011 | 5:37P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I'm going to be honest here when I say that I wasn't on the Fusion bandwagon from the start. I liked the idea behind it, but I wasn't sure if we would actually ever see it eventuate, or at least eventuate to a product that we would want to own. Fusion is here, though, and it's time to decide if this is something that's going to line AMDs pockets with money, or will be a good idea that hasn't been executed well. Our first look at Fusion is going to come in the form of a retail board which will be hitting shelves soon. The GIGABYTE E350N-USB3 is as you might've guessed a Fusion board based on the E Series of Fusion APU from AMD. They tell us that this is the "Value & Essential" series. We're going to get into all of that in just a few moments, though, as we take a look at the motherboard to see what's on offer. What we'll first do is check out the package that GIGABYTE has got going on. Once that's done we'll have a closer look at the board itself, the features it offers and get a bit more technical with what Fusion is and what AMD wants it to do."

Patriot Memory Supersonic USB 3.0 Flash Drive
     Tue, Feb 15 2011 | 5:17P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Companies are starting to come out of the wood work with USB 3.0 storage products, many of which were released at CES 2011. We've been testing USB 3.0 portable storage enclosures since November 2009 when we hosted the very first USB 3.0 product review online. Since then we've seen large and small devices, but the trend is leading to smaller and more compact storage that mates us to the 5G USB 3.0 protocol. In an effort to continue the progression of smaller, faster storage products, Patriot Memory has sourced the world's first native USB 3.0 to flash controller. By eliminating a bridge chip the new Patriot Supersonic is smaller than any other USB 3.0 thumb drive we've tested and offers less latency as well. Patriot claims the new Supersonic is able to achieve read speeds of up to 100MB/s and write speeds of up to 70MB/s. These numbers are much lower than the high end SSD based storage enclosures we've reviewed like the OCZ Technology Enyo, but the Supersonic is also much smaller and can be had at a much lower price point."

ZOTAC GeForce GTX 560 Ti AMP! Edition 1 GB
     Tue, Feb 15 2011 | 5:17P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ZOTAC's GeForce GTX 560 Ti AMP! Edition is the highest-clocked GTX 560 money can buy at the moment. Its blazing clocks of 950 MHz core and 1100 MHz memory give it a 12% real-life performance advantage over the reference design, which is quite impressive for the $279 it's coming at. With additional overclocking we could reach 998 MHz, and almost broke the 1 GHz barrier!

Antec is one of the best known brand names in computer hardware enthusiast circles. Many HardOCP editor's personally use its products and Antec is a "go-to" brand that remains on our suggested hardware list. Can even a quality company like Antec miss the mark? It does this time.

OCZ RevoDrive X2 PCIe Solid State Drive
     Tue, Feb 15 2011 | 5:14P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The RevoDrive X2 is essentially an original RevoDrive with a daughter card piggybacked on top. This daughter card adds two additional SandForce controllers and room for more memory chips, bringing the total controller count to four. A RAID0 configuration manages the four controllers and memory chips, resulting in what OCZ proclaims is a blazing fast PCIe SSD solution. We were pretty impressed with the original RevoDrive and can only wonder if the follow-up product is equally as impressive."
