ASRock X99 OC Formula Motherboard Review Designed For Overclocking
     Fri, Dec 19 2014 | 1:44P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the past, overclocking has been seen as sort of hacking your hardware to run outside of the manufacturers specifications. This type of behavior would have been against the manufacturers wishes and likely void your warranty. However, today we live in a world of overclocking competitions and world records. Many of the very same companies that would have forbidden it in the past, now not only endorse it by sponsoring competitive teams, but design hardware tailored specifically to overclocking enthusiasts. This brings us to this reports subject, the ASRock X99 OC Formula; a motherboard designed by top overclocker Nick Shih, who currently holds the world record for overclocking the Intel Core i7 5960X to a previously unheard of 6620.73 MHz, on this very motherboard."

AOC U2868PQU 4K UHD 28 inch LCD Monitor Review
     Fri, Dec 19 2014 | 9:03A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ever since i got my first "serious" computer system back in 1990 (based on the Intel 80286 CPU) and my first serious gaming only system (the Commodore Amiga 500) roughly a year earlier (which i then upgraded to the 500 Plus model) Iíve always loved playing my favorite games on the largest screen possible. Of course until the late 90's a 17 inch EIZO CRT monitor was pretty much all i could afford but all that changed with the arrival of TFT monitors since by 2005 i was enjoying games on a 21.5 inch Super-IPS model by Samsung. Well after that things progressed much faster thanks to the arrival of the Full HD resolution (1920x1080) era so by 2009 i was using a 26 inch IPS monitor by NEC for gaming and an 55 inch LCD screen by SONY for watching movies. Now 4k Ultra HD resolution (3840x2160) has arrived and with it so have several compatible monitors and TV screens but is it as tempting and impressive as Full HD was over 5 years ago? Well in an effort to find out today we're testing the first 4k Ultra HD compatible monitor by AOC the U2868PQU.

SilverStone SX600-G SFX 600W Power Supply Review
     Fri, Dec 19 2014 | 4:49A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While the overall build quality and performance are good, the SX600-G doesnt stand out in any particular area (other than size!) when compared to other enthusiast-grade 600W ATX power supplies. It normally would not bring home a PCPerspective Gold Award (especially with a 3-year warranty) except that the SX600-G is unique and occupies a very specific niche market. We have enjoyed our time with the SX600-G and have come to appreciate the advantages of a relatively high power small form factor PSU for use in compact, cramped chassis; even when they are designed to accommodate a full size ATX PSU. The SX600-G does an excellent job of delivering on its design goals and deserves to be recognized."

Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB 2800MHz DDR4 Review
     Thu, Dec 18 2014 | 10:53P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Packed full of promise, the latest modules in the Vengeance series of Corsair`s DDR4 memory lineup deliver excellent performance when tweaked to get the tightest timings. Out of the box they come with 16-18-18-36 primary timings using just 1.2v to run the modules. By tweaking the applied voltage a little bit you can get the timings much tighter at the rated speed and even when running at my max overclock of 3200MHz. At this speed I was able to run the timings at 15-15-15-28 2T using over 1.4v applied to the modules. The modules were not 100% stable at that speed, but were good for benchmarks all day long, delivering some substantial performance gains when run with a heavily overclocked Core i7 5960X. Full stability was gained at 16-16-16-30, but could be run tighter if you want to drop the module`s speed or increase the voltage a bit higher. Although for this test I stuck with 1.45v as my max voltage in the absence of more robust cooling methods."

Core i7-5960X vs. Core i7-5820K - Content Creation performance analysis @ ocaholic
     Thu, Dec 18 2014 | 9:24P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There is a variety of customer groups, which demand as much power as possible from their computers in order to accelerate processes in order to become more efficient and in the end increase revenue or add additional value to their projects. Especially in the field of content creation, which includes editing pictures and videos or even rendering a complex scenery with beautiful effects, will benefit largely from fast processors as well as a powerful underlying system architecture. With this series of articles we`re going to compare two processors with every single article. The CPUs tested are being run at stock clocks as well as overclocked and apart from that we will also vary the memory frequency. It is our goal to show in depth which CPU is how much faster or slower than another one."

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.
