[Tech ARP] BIOS Option Of The Week - SDRAM Burst Length
     Sun, Apr 24 2011 | 9:05A | BIOS | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meager beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition. Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend. This week, we will be taking a look at the SDRAM Burst Length BIOS setting."

ASUS N53’s (N53SV-A1) exterior
     Sat, Apr 23 2011 | 4:00P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"There are a few rough edges. The display of the N53 is quite poor for a laptop of this price, and the squishy keyboard is a nasty oversight in a laptop with an otherwise luxurious finish. However, these problems are tolerable considering this laptop’s performance. The ASUS N53 is a hardware powerhouse; indeed, it’s a testament to the fact that computer processors – quick though they may be – still have significant room for improvement in the future, and those improvements will positively impact the quality of the computer you receive for your money."

Cooler Master Storm Enforcer Computer Case
     Sat, Apr 23 2011 | 12:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Let me start off by asking you this question: What did you want to be when you were growing up as a child? I have heard many answers from various different people. Some wanted to be teachers, others wanted to be policemen, and still others wanted to be programmers working for Microsoft. Being slightly stereotypical here, but by far the most common includes musician, doctor, lawyer, engineer, and other "Asian" responses along these lines (No offense to anyone, being Chinese myself, haha). For myself, I have always wanted the best of all of these, but of course, it was near impossible to be all of them at the same time. As I grew older, having the dream of being the best in the world faded out as reality came into view. As an engineer would put it, these two factors are inversely related. One of my very first choices, and it still holds today, is dreaming to be a policeman. Yes, being in an Asian family, this is certainly not high up on the list, or at least, in my family anyways. But of course, you always had to choose one out of the many, and at that time, I still wasn't sure what I wanted to be, so I chose computer science and anything related to IT. Let's be realistic here, who doesn't need an IT guy in this day and age? With the growing interest in both the police force and the field of technology, I recently came across something that seems to combine the best of both worlds. With the NDA lifting today, Cooler Master unveils the Storm Enforcer to the world. Implementing a very police-like theme in the case -- or at least in its packaging -- it offers an aggressive gaming design that is restrained to a clean model all the same time. Is this one product that would at last turn my dreams to reality? Well, you will have to read on to find out!

Thermaltake V9 BlacX Edition Mid Tower Chassis
     Sat, Apr 23 2011 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Lately the market has finally opened up, and in mid tower designs these days we can find cases that aren't going to break the bank and come very well equipped. It used to be that $100 might get you an Antec 900 case, and with that you got some cool hard drive cages and a bunch of airflow. The internal layout was very simplistic, wasn't painted, and your ears took a hammering from the noise level that come from inside the case. I really like the fact that manufacturers are realizing that buyers don't have a ton of expendable cash, and are actually trying to offer us some lower dollar products that still offer variations on things found in the much more expensive cases on the market. Whether you are in the need for a LAN case that isn't going to take up a bunch of room, or if you just don't need all the room a full tower offers in your office, we already know Thermaltake made big waves with the earlier releases in the Element series of cases. This is sort of a cross between an Antec 900 and all the finer points found in the various Element cases. Thermaltake just didn't stop there with this chassis, though. Not only does this new design carry USB 3.0 connectivity and a lot of tool -less features, it is fully painted inside and out, designed well, and offers a huge bonus."
