Posted by: STAFF
"Its on folks, after a few years of being stonewalled, XSR is back working with OCZ; and what a good way to get back into the swing of things. Today it’s the OCZ Vertex 2 120GB SSD that we’re looking into; hopefully it’s not the last one we’ll do either, so I better do I good job; though I can’t give them an easy time either, what a dilemna."

Thermaltake Max 5G 3.5 Hard Drive Enclosure
     Tue, May 17 2011 | 6:16P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Have you ever woken up in the morning and wished for a breakfast in bed? I am certain a few of you individuals have experienced this craving, and let me be the first to tell you that the Thermaltake Max 5G is exactly that craving taunter. Now, many of you are probably wondering what I am trying to get at here, so let me clarify -- bacon. Simply put, this hard drive enclosure smells like bacon in my opinion. Thermaltake must have some kind of telekinesis power, because who would make a HDD enclosure that smells like bacon? Let us not get too carried away with the "bacony" goodness of the Max 5G. Many would have expected this "meaty" enclosure to make a lot of noise, considering it incorporates two fans. With two fans, one would at least expect to hear much of the fan noise. However, after turning it on for quite some time, it was actually not too bad. Continuing on with my daily chores, it almost made me think the fans were not even on, but the stylish blue LEDs convinced me otherwise. I am not sure what is with all the blue LED fans that manufactures keep using on almost all the electronics I use, but it is almost getting to the point where my computer is now a glowing blue monster in the middle of the night. Thermaltake sure seems to be messing around my head when it comes to this enclosure. Read on to find out why!

Axle3D GT430 Classic
     Tue, May 17 2011 | 6:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"At 1080p, the Axle3D GT 430 posts a just about playable 29.1 FPS, whilst the Inno3D GT 430 posts more than 2FPS higher. This is disappointing for Axle3D - a name I wasn't familiar with prior to this review. I would have hoped for this card to be better than the competition"

Corsair Obsidian 650D Review
     Tue, May 17 2011 | 5:46P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Having two full tower cases within the range has certainly satisfied the high-end market but what about mid-range? Well today we will be looking at the new 650D. This is a mid-tower case, offering all the features of the 800D but in a smaller shell. Not everyone favours a full tower case, many have been waiting for this 650D – the smaller brother to the 800D.

HP Pavilion dm1z Fusion Ultralight Notebook Review
     Tue, May 17 2011 | 4:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
What began as a trickle -- as AMD finally introduced a shipping version of the long-awaited Fusion platform -- has turned into a steady stream, and we're definitely excited to see APUs, as AMD calls the product, finally making an impact. AMD had played up the idea of an Accelerated Processing Unit for years, and now, it's clearly a reality. Lenovo's ThinkPad X120e, which we reviewed a few months ago, instantly became one of our favorite ultraportables, and now HP has what appears to be a rival machine, of sorts. The Pavilion dm1z is an 11.6" machine, that is a touch larger than the myriad 10" netbooks already on the market, and honestly, we're struggling with what to classify this machine as. Is is a netbook? Is it an ultraportable? In reality, it's probably a hybrid of the two. You're getting the portability and longevity of a netbook, but the power and price of a nicer ultraportable.

Silverstone Raven RV03 Enthusiast Tower
     Tue, May 17 2011 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Now SilverStone has released a new case to the market, the Raven RV03, which sticks with its predecessors 90° motherboard mounting and advancements in design. With the RV03 SilverStone retained much of the styling from the RV02, but made it to be not as long, which eliminates some problems of its older brethren. Most notably would be the issue of where to stick it, since the length of the -01 and -02 models made it stick out from under your desk if on the floor, or hang over the edge if put on top of the desk. So without further adieu, lets get this show started!

MSI R6970 Lightning 2GB
     Tue, May 17 2011 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Three voltage check points for the GPU, Memory and PLL (PCI-Express interface) are present on the edge of the card, and as mentioned earlier, MSI include a set of cables that you can attach easily to your multimeter (not provided) for accurate voltage monitoring while benchmarking or volt-modding. In addition to those voltage check points, MSI include their own dual-BIOS technology as originally seen with reference HD 6970's, but this time they've included their own second BIOS setting that increases the PowerTune range (2.5x) and maximised the Catalyst Control Centre overclocking limit with a click of a button.

SandForce SF-2000 Series Client Launch
     Tue, May 17 2011 | 9:03A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"2010 was not only SandForce's break out year, but the year in which SandForce became an industry leader. In order to do that, SandForce needed to engineer a product that was innovative and offer a significant increase in performance to the competitions products, while doing so at a lower cost. That is exactly what SandForce managed to do. Today SandForce is launching two new consumer products designed to build upon the success of the SF-1200. The SF-2200 will be the successor for the high end enthusiast market, and the new SF-2100 will occupy the quickly emerging mainstream SSD market. We have a lot of information to share with you today, so let's get started."
