ADATA HM-1200 1200W Power Supply
     Thu, Feb 03 2011 | 12:07A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"ADATA has always been a well known manufacturer of memory and storage products. In early 2010, the company announced that it was entering the power supply market with the introduction of the Horus series of power supplies. The HM series comes in five different flavors ranging from 500W all the way up to 1200W, providing something for just about everyone. Today we have their HM-1200 on the bench to see how their first entry into the power supply market performs. The ADATA HM-1200 promises to provide you with just about all the power you could ever use, even with dual processors and multiple GPU's in a single system. The 1200W of power is split between a pair of 12V rails and some seriously beefy 5V and 3.3V rails. To make full use of the 1200W, ADATA offers up a hefty amount of cables and connectors that will make sure you can power systems where cases are packed to the max with drives, GPU's and more."

: HyperX MAX 3.0 128gb Portable USB 3.0 SSD
     Thu, Feb 03 2011 | 12:07A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"One way to take advantage of this bus speed is to pair a speedy Solid State Drive (SSD) with an enclosure using USB 3.0. Kingston is one of the first to enter this market with the release of its HyperX MAX 3.0, their external SSD based USB 3.0 drive. This drive uses flash memory in place of a mechanic drive which provides advertised read speeds of up to 195MB/sec and writes up to 160MB/sec. Kingston offers the HyperX MAX 3.0 in three capacities – 64GB, 128GB and 256GB. "

Zalman Z9 Plus Case Review
     Thu, Feb 03 2011 | 12:06A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Previously known for offering only high-end and expensive products, recently Zalman decided to offer entry-level products as well, like the Z7 and Z9 case series. The Z9 series, which is the latest release from the South Korean company, comes with two models: Z9 (USD 50) and Z9 Plus (USD 70). Let's see if the Z9 Plus is a good option. Both Z9 and Z9 Plus are based on the same body, but the Z9 Plus comes with the following features that are not present on the standard Z9:"

Xigmatek Aegir SD128264 CPU Cooler
     Thu, Feb 03 2011 | 12:06A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It has been awhile since we last saw any Xigmatek products surface from the pages of Pro-Clockers, but that changed a few days ago when we received a hefty box from them. The first item is the biggest and baddest of those in the box, and what we will be bringing you today: the Aegir SD128264 (to make it easy, we'll just call it Aegir). This new cooler utilizes Xigmatek's latest update to the direct touch technology which they are calling Dual Layer H.D.T. The sheer size when combined with this new technology should make the Aegir one cooler not to be reckoned with. Lets take a look at this thing and see if it is lived up to our hype!

Lian Li Mini-Q PC-Q08 @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Feb 02 2011 | 12:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There's only one thing worse than having to pack up a 70-pound gaming rig to go to a LAN party: Packing two. Being married to a gaming girl is wonderful but it does have the downside that I have to pack up and transport two rigs for every LAN we travel to. After building a Shuttle for myself it was only a matter of time before I miniaturized her rig also. Looking for any excuse to upgrade her I contacted Lian Li about a Mini ITX case that they carried and went on with selecting the rest of her parts list. That case is the Lian Li Mini-Q PC-Q08, with Lian Li’s style and quality I have high hopes!

Posted by: STAFF
"Today we have two of ASRock's P67 based boards on our test bench and will be putting them through a selection of real world and synthetic tests. To keep things interesting for those who have already seen a number of P67/Sandy Bridge articles, in this review we will put the ASRock systems up against the similarly priced X58 / Core i7-950 combination to see if these new products offer better performance and value for consumers than Intel's now ageing high end platform."

Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

With the P8P67 WS Revolution ASUS has a first workstation motherboard in its portfolio supporting Intel Sandy Bridge processors. The board itself should be very stable and there should also be an extensive delivery included. If even the performance is on a reasonable, good level that's what we will uncover on the following pages.

Zalman ZM1000-HP Plus 1000W Power Supply
     Wed, Feb 02 2011 | 9:03A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Zalman quickly made a name for themselves in the quiet PC sector years ago and have been somewhat of a pioneer in quiet and efficient cooling. Shortly after grabbing a firm hold of the heatsink and fan market, Zalman went on to produce quiet power supplies and have been quite successful in doing so. Those who seek a quiet yet high powered PC will be interested in the unit on the test bench today, as it offers lots of power with little noise. The Zalman ZM1000-HP Plus is a quad 12V rail 1000W power supply. It offers up enough power and connectors to run up to three GPU's and some heavy overclocking. Zalman has incorporated their quiet cooling knowledge inside the ZM1000-HP Plus with a large 140mm fan and dual heat pipes inside to increase cooling and reduce noise when under load."

Customize the Firefox 4 Interface With These Simple Tweaks
     Wed, Feb 02 2011 | 9:02A | Beginners Guides | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Firefox 4 is expected to bring one of the most significant stylistic overhauls that the browser has undertaken since the initial transition from the old Mozilla suite. Although the final release is still a few weeks away, we’ve already had a taste of its look and feel thanks to the eight betas pushed out so far. Firefox 4's UI is simplistic and streamlined but it has also drawn criticism for dropping elements like page titles in the title bar or simply for being too “Chrome-like.” Of course Mozilla hasn't deviated from what's made Firefox the second most used browser in the world: flexibility. Here are some quick customization tricks you can use to help you tailor Mozilla’s browser closer to your needs.
