Posted by: STAFF
Fractal Design has enlarged the Define R3 to a full tower with additional features, calling it the Define XL. We tear it apart, fill it with hardware and see if we still have room to breath or if it is all nothing but wasted space

     Mon, Feb 21 2011 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When MSI unveiled the new GT680R gaming laptop at CES this year, the company touted it as one of the "fastest, most powerful gaming notebooks in the world."

Under the hood, you'll find NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M graphics with 1.5GB of video memory, 8GB of DDR3 system memory, and two 500GB 7,200rpm hard drives...

Cooler Master Elite Power 350 W Power Supply Review
     Sun, Feb 20 2011 | 4:03P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"We also like to review low-end products from time to time so people with a serious budget restriction can have an idea whether it is worthwhile to buy cheap products or not. Today we are going to take an in-depth look at the Elite Power 350 W (RS-350-PSAR-I3) from Cooler Master. Can it really deliver its rated power? Is it worthwhile giving it a shot if you don't have a lot of money to spend on a power supply? Let's see."

Radeon HD 6950 1GB vs GeForce GTX 560 Ti review
     Sun, Feb 20 2011 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When the GeForce GTX 560 Ti was released shortly ago, one things was clear - the price versus performance ratio would be great. Especially with the extensive factory overclocked models in mind these cards perform really well. So a couple of weeks ago AMD decided to sort of 'Ambush' NVIDIA, by releasing a 1 GB version of the Radeon HD 6950, a product with the very same features and specifications as it's big brother the 2 GB version has yet priced way below we all expected it to be.

KFA2 GeForce GTX 560 White edition and Anarchy review
     Sun, Feb 20 2011 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
KFA2 submitted two cards, one focused at pure silence is the Galaxy GTX 560 Ti GC / KFA2 GeForce GTX 560 EX OC ANARCHY. The second card tested today is the GeForce GTX 560 White Edition aka KFA2 GeForce GTX 560 LTD OC White edition. The KFA2 GeForce GTX 560 EX OC ANARCHYcomes with a “TwinBlade” dual 90mm silent fan cooler which offers 1.8x more cooling fin than the reference cooler. A cooling solution that is much more silent than the reference products and comes with a detachable design. The second card tested today is the GeForce GTX 560 White Edition aka KFA2 GeForce GTX 560 LTD OC White edition. It comes factory clocked at 950 MHz on the primary GPU core and 4400 MHz on the memory at default.

ASRock Fatal1ty P67 Professional Socket 1155 Motherboard
     Sun, Feb 20 2011 | 12:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Yes, the ASRock Fatal1ty P67 Professional has a lot of features that we have not seen in a motherboard before, the most unique of which would be the Fatal1ty Mouse Port. What it does is allow you to adjust the designated USB port to whatever polling rate you wish, from 125 Hz to 1000Hz, which means you could even use the same polling of 500Hz that Fatal1ty uses. As this is just one of the many aspects of the motherboard, follow along and we will give you the full skinny on this new and exciting ASRock review.

SilverStone Precision PS05 Computer Case Review
     Sun, Feb 20 2011 | 12:02P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the past few weeks here at APH Networks, there has been quite a few articles on SilverStone products. Many users who have followed along would have noticed we had gone through two separate articles on SilverStone products alone over the past month or so. Today, we are finally on our the last of our trio, and plan to go out with a bang. (Not literally. We're not blowing anything up.) We chose the biggest object to review out of the three, just to give it the incremental quality -- or at least quantity -- vibe. SilverStone is well known for their excellence in the computing field, with products ranging from fans such as the SilverStone Air Penetrator SST-AP121-L, power supplies such as the SilverStone Strider Gold ST75F-G 750W, as well as cases such as the Precision PS05 we are reviewing today. Just imagine how many articles we could go through in a year. Anywho, for our final part of the SilverStone trio of articles, we chose to end it off with a case. The SilverStone Precision PS05 is the newest revision of the Precision series. Although it is the value line for SilverStone, even the value series promises "thoughtful details from high-end chassis designs", according to the manufacturer. That is one bold statement to make for such a product in its intended market, but we trust SilverStone knows what they are talking about, since they are known for making excellent stuff in this area. So let us dive right into this review, and see how well this case implements "details from high-end chassis designs".

MSI Radeon HD 6870 1GB HAWK Overclocked Video Card Review
     Sun, Feb 20 2011 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The HAWK series is one of my favorite, and that's mainly because it sits towards the top of the chart when it comes to what you can do with a card. At the bottom of the stack you've got your reference card. From there we introduce an overclock and over that you can start to look at custom cooling. Once you get out of that area, you're into cards like the HAWK and Lightning which utilize custom PCBs. That introduces the ability to gain an even higher overclock than other models, and when combined with MSIs own overclocking software, Afterburner, we can really reach for the skies. Unlike the Lightning series, though, the HAWK series name is more aimed around the midrange market with one of our most recent favorites being the GTX 470 HAWK. With the release of the GTX 560 Ti, though, a lot of pressure has been applied to the mid-range AMD models and today we intend to find out what the HD 6870 HAWK can bring to the party. Before we look at the performance, though, we'll quickly look at the package and then the card itself. Once that's done we'll look at the default specifications along with what we overclocked the card to. After that the fun stuff begins and we pit the model up against a number of others to see what kind of performance we're able to achieve."

Lian Li is well known for their high qualitiy aluminium comptuer cases but despite this the PC-V2120 is something special. It almost doesn't matter to which other case you compare this one to the PC-V2120 has almost no competition. Therefore we're really curious what's awaiting with this excellent looking case.

NVIDIA ForceWare 266.58 Performance Analysis
     Sun, Feb 20 2011 | 9:02A | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"NVIDIA release a heap of drivers. It seems there's one coming out every week lately. Unlike AMD, NVIDIAs betas are really pushed throughout the enthusiast community. If we did the same kind of thing with the NVIDIA ForceWare drivers as we do with AMD and its Catalyst drivers, I would be testing ForceWare drivers 24 / 7. The ForceWare 266.58 driver set is more important, because unlike a lot of other drivers this is a WHQL one; which for people who prefer to only upgrade when WHQL ones make their way to the market, it could well be time for an upgrade. With a whole lot of new models recently as well, there's finally a chance to get off those betas and get on some proper WHQL ones. So what are the performance improvements? Let's take a quick look at what's in the release notes before we get stuck into the benchmarks."
