In this review Frostytech will be putting the Evercool Transformer 3 heatsink through its paces. The Transformer 3 is a tower-style heatsink which stands exactly 160mm tall. The cooler comes with a single 120mm PWM fan that operates at speeds of 2200RPM to 800RPM, though a second fan can added to the rear if desired. Four white vibration absorbing rubber posts are used to reduce vibrations from the fan motor to the heatsink, extra fan posts are supplied. The heatsink stands 160mm tall, is 130mm wide and 78mm deep with the single fan.

"HD content is here to stay and 3D is becoming the latest high end viewing feature to be hitting living rooms around the world.

Plantronics Gamecom X30 Xbox headset

Posted by: STAFF
"Having reviewed some of the higher end headsets from Platronics after meeting them at Gadget Show Live 2011, we better not neglect the lower end and vocally focused. With that in mind, today it’s the X30's turn. It’s still part of the Gamecom range, but it only handles the conversation you have with your team mates or opponents."

Xigmatek Gaia SD1283 Heatsink Review on Frostytech.com
     Mon, May 30 2011 | 4:08A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.frostytech.com
www.frostytech.com
Forged in the mountains by a one-eye'd master heatsink maker who learned the trade before the dawn of the first X86 integrated circuit, the Xigmatek SD1283 Gaia heatsink is... is... ...yet another tower heatsink built around the direct touch heatpipe technique. Weighing in at a moderate 460 grams, the Xigmatek SD1283 Gaia is compatible with socket 775/1155/1156/1366 Intel CPUs and socket 754/939/940/AM2/AM3 AMD processors. As is the case with most tower-style heatsinks, compact computer users might have a hard time fitting all 159mm's worth of the SD1283 Gaia into a slim computer case.

[Tech ARP] BIOS Option Of The Week - SDRAM Bank-to-Bank Delay
     Sun, May 29 2011 | 10:50A | 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 Bank-to-Bank Delay BIOS setting."

Creative Labs Sound Blaster Tactic 3D Sigma Headset Review
     Sat, May 28 2011 | 4:03P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"It seems that producing an algorithm based surround headset is becoming quite a trend of late with several already having made their way to us for testing over the last few months. Obviously producing a simple stereo headset with software driven surround sound capability is going to be a cheaper and probably more viable option for most large companies, as opposed to more complex designs. And this is possibly why we are seeing such a swing in this direction of late. Today we are looking at the Sound Blaster Tactic 3D Sigma, which most notably uses the company's famous Sound Blaster name in order to swing attention away from competition and towards this product. Nothing really exiting with regards to the specifications list except that Creative has chosen to use a large 50mm driver like much of the competition. This large driver allows for greater mid range extension and clarity while providing an overall bigger sound from the headset."

Western Digital My Passport Essential SE 1TB USB 3.0 HDD Review
     Sat, May 28 2011 | 4:02P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Consumers have a lot of choices when it comes to portable storage products. When shopping it is important to look for a drive that is easy to use, comes with an abundant amount of features and protects the drive inside very well. All of those features can be found in the Western Digital My Passport Series of products. You don't have to take my word for it; Western Digital currently holds the title as the number one seller of external hard drives by volume with their My Passport Series. The Western Digital My Passport Essential SE is the latest addition to the Series and brings a colourful entry to the normally boring world of portable storage. With four colour options available; blue, red, silver and black, you can choose what goes best with that new purse. The choices don't stop there; the My Passport Essential SE is also available in 1TB or 750GB capacity sizes."
