GTA V PC Performance, 4K And 3 GeForces
     Thu, May 21 2015 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto series has been wildly successful for many years now, offering some of the edgiest story lines, game play tactics and objectives the gaming industry has ever seen. With psychopathic main characters, you are left in the depraved communities of Los Santos and Blaine County, to walk a path few would dare choose in real life, committing nefarious acts, robbing and pillaging to complete your objectives.

Fractal Design Core 2500 Case Review
     Thu, May 21 2015 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Thirdly and probably most importantly is the “Bang for the Buck” aspect of the Fractal Design Line of computer cases. They exceed standards that other companies have almost ignored and throughout this new direction of a better global price equilibrium for a more growing world market, Fractal Design has done just that without sacrificing material quality and superior design and gives what you more than a buyer would expect out of any of the cases that Fractal Design makes. In essence Fractal Design cases are not engineered to brake your pocket or kill a credit card limit but instead to give the buyer a quality and excellence that actually exceeds the monetary value of the case itself. With these factors in mind, I would like to get on with this review of Fractal Designs newest entries into the Econo-Class market, The CORE 2500; and later the Fractal Design CORE 1500 review coming soon."

Philips Brilliance BDM4065UC
     Thu, May 21 2015 | 9:02A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The BDM4065UC is possibly the largest 4K PC display on the market, with a whopping 40-inch diagonal screen size. It’s absolutely huge, resembling the size of many living-room family televisions. It uses a VA LCD panel with a typical W-LED backlight. With standard 8-bit colour, along with a 3ms SmartResponse G2G pixel latency, it’s more for general-purpose use and gaming than for colour-accurate graphic design work.

     Wed, May 20 2015 | 12:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink

ASRock X99E-ITX/ac (Intel SKT 2011-3)
     Wed, May 20 2015 | 12:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
What do you do when you want a PC with a small footprint, but a powerful CPU? You buy an mITX motherboard. But what if you want EIGHTEEN CORES and THIRTY-SIX threads? You buy the ASRock X99E-ITX/ac. Doing the unexpected by bringing Intel's X99 Express to the mITX form-factor, the ASRock X99E-ITX/ac can push those 18-core Xeon chips and has an X-OC socket to push Intel's standard unlocked chips to the limit. And USB 3.1. And a CPU cooler is in the box.

Antec ISK 110 90w Mini-ITX VESA Compatible Chassis Review
     Wed, May 20 2015 | 12:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Antec ISK series has long been a favorite of mine. Sure we sometimes need high-end full towers, capable of housing epic gaming systems, but there’s a high demand for compact and efficient systems in the home and the office; something the ISK series is well suited to. The model we’re looking at today certainly is targeted more at the professional market, with many applications from digital signage and office systems, but there’s certainly no reason why you wouldn’t find a use for a chassis like this as a HTPC, space-saving system or more.

Posted by: STAFF
ASUSTOR has been hard at work. Not only have they been releasing some very impressive NAS lately, but they are also hard at work in the development labs to try and make ADM (ASUSTOR Data Master) the best operating system they can. ADM is intuitive, impressive, and fast.

Intel 750 Series PCIe SSD Review
     Wed, May 20 2015 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Don't be fooled into thinking the new Intel 750 PCIe solid state drive is a brand new drive. It is not. It's essentially a tweaked version of the P3700 Enterprise card but his time for consumers. The device currently comes in two sizes: 400GB & 1.2TB.

Ozone Argon Advanced Pro Laser Gaming Mouse Review
     Wed, May 20 2015 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ozone are one of my all time favourite gaming brands. Time and time again they’ve shown us that they can make a great gaming peripheral, so I’m really eager to see what the Argon has to offer. A great gaming mouse may not actually make you a better gamer, but it can certainly enhance the experience and given Ozone have a solid track history, I think we’ll be in for a real treat today.

XFX R9 280 Double Dissipation Review
     Tue, May 19 2015 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The XFX R9 280 DD offers a price-to-performance ratio that rivals even the latest cards on the market. It can run all of the latest games, and does so while staying cool and relatively quiet. On top of that, you get XFX’s excellent Double Lifetime warranty, which is currently unmatched by any other vendor, and of course their excellent customer service, which we’ve experienced first hand over the years when dealing with their products.

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
