GIGABYTE G1.Sniper
     Fri, Mar 11 2011 | 5:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At CES 2011, GIGABYTE announced the release of a completely new series of motherboards: the G1.Killer series. The series consists of three different variants: the G1.Assasin, the G1.Sniper, and the G1.Guerilla, all of which utilize the old X58 chipset, while bringing in a set of new features that are not observed in any other modern motherboard. The G1 series motherboards have been designed to deliver maximum performance without depriving the user of the room for creativity. The most definitive features of these motherboards are the built-in high quality audio utilzing the Creative 20K2 chip and the Bigfoot Killer E2100 Network Processing Unit. These features are geared towards the gaming audience, but are not limited to one particular group of users. Without the need to use expansion slots for audio or LAN hardware, users are able to make full use of the provided PCI-E bandwidth to either stock up on GPUs or add additional cards to their liking.

AMD E-350 Accelerated Processor
     Fri, Mar 11 2011 | 12:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Those who thought the Brazos platform would be revolutionary might be disappointed because it's not. The new solution is, without a doubt, slightly faster than Pine Trail, but it belongs to the same class in terms of processor performance. Neither solution can compete with three-year-old low-end desktop processors."

Belkin Conserve Insight and Conserve Socket (Energy Conservation)
     Fri, Mar 11 2011 | 12:01P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"A few years removed from the start of the economic crisis, people are still experiencing the effects to this day, but thankfully things are starting to slowly improve. When something of this extent hits, people come to realize that they need to alter their lifestyles in order to adapt to the economic crisis. What this means varies from person to person, although it could mean saving a little money by denying yourself that Starbucks coffee or Tim Horton’s donut, which is a blessing in disguise (health wise). Or perhaps it’s even more drastic than that, by forgoing your monthly cable or satellite TV bill, in exchange for going with OTA (over-the-air) HD instead, something that ModSynergy.com has covered in the past with reviews pertaining to HDTV antennas and giving you information on the digital ATSC standard. Simply put, people are becoming money conscious as they know the state of their economy. Saving money can be motivating and fun too, almost making it such as a game to play. This review will introduce you a product that gives this impression. Today I review the Belkin Insight Energy Use Monitor and the Belkin Conserve Socket Power Timer."

OCZ ZX Series 850W power supply review
     Fri, Mar 11 2011 | 12:00P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Until someone can effectively convince me otherwise, I am not an environmentalist. Let me clarify before we begin that the probability of convincing me otherwise is zero, so please do not even try. And no, egging my house will not change my mind. I can assure you I will promptly dial 911. On the other hand, don't take me wrong and label me as someone who don't care about the environment -- I do and will continue to do my part in recycling and the such. It is just I am not about to go out of my way just to 'go green'. Admittedly, I drive an 8th generation Honda Civic, and routinely get over 40 US MPG on average with some hypermiling techniques. But I do that not because I want to protect the environment per se. I just happen to really like my wallet. You know, using less gas saves me money. I like that. And let's be honest here -- do you think companies actually reduce their product packaging out of the goodness of their own hearts to save the earth? No, they're just saving money on reduced packaging so they can make more money; at the same time advertise they are being green. Therefore, let's deal with it: This is called killing two birds with one stone. At this point, you may be wondering what my whole little rant on being environmental has to do with our OCZ ZX Series 850W article today. In fact, this has everything to do with it. The latest flagship in OCZ's line of computer power supplies is unsurprisingly another 80 Plus Gold certified unit, meaning it is at least 87%, 90%, 87% efficient at 20%, 50%, and 100% load, respectively. In fact, every power supply we have looked at since August last year were Gold certified. Other than saying this is a very 'green' power supply, for most computer enthusiasts, this means it is yet another high performance PSU built with top notch components inside. Being efficient also means less heat is generated for a quieter operation in conjunction with improved thermal management inside your chassis. Oh yeah, you get to save some electricity and reduce your next utility bill. The best of both worlds? Sounds like a winner to me. So whether you are someone who cares about the environment or want maximum performance, we opened up an OCZ ZX Series 850W power supply for our report today. Read on to see what we have found!

Patriot Torqx XRB 64GB SSD Review
     Fri, Mar 11 2011 | 9:03A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"One problem plaguing those that want an SSD at the moment is that there really isn't an option for those without deep pockets. There's no way getting round it, SSDs are expensive. However, you can help alleviate this wallet pressure by getting one without too much storage space. Today we look at one of the smallest available SSD sizes, a 64GB from Patriot known as the Torqx TRB. Let's see how it holds up against the bigger boys. "

MSI R6950 Twin Frozr III Power Edition Review
     Fri, Mar 11 2011 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The product we’ll be looking at today is the MSI R6950 Twin Frozr III. As its name suggests, the R6950 Twin Frozr III is powered by AMD’s Radeon HD 6950 GPU and the card sports MSI’s third-generation Twin Frozr cooler. MSI did more with the R6950 Twin Frozr III than swap the reference cooler with one of their own design, however. The R6950 Twin Frozr III is outfitted with a custom PCB and has a couple of other interesting additions as well. Check out the specs and then we’ll move on to some of the more juicy details, benchmarks, and some overclocking action...

Kingston 64GB SSD (ssdNOW V Series) Review
     Fri, Mar 11 2011 | 9:00A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are going to be taking a look at the Kingston 64gb SSD. It doesn't come with the blazing new Sand Force controller or a huge storage capacity but we are going to dig until we find SOMETHING the drive can go home and brag about. This drive has been on the market for over a year, with packaging in many different disguises. But other than some exterior changes, are we getting anything new compared to a year ago? Are we getting the same ol' stuttering JMicron controller or did Kingston really upgrade the controller for real world use? Let's just see, shall we?

Patriot Xporter XT 32gb pen drive

Posted by: STAFF
"Having just fired out a review of their SSD, today I'm picking up the mantle of another Patriot review. This one's the 32Gb variant of their Xporter line of pen drives. It's only USB 2.0 so I'm not expecting mind blowing performance, but Patriot have said that this one has "200x performance speed", so it's gotta be fast, right?"

Toshiba NB550D AMD Fusion Netbook w/ Harman Kardon Speakers Review
     Thu, Mar 10 2011 | 4:02P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Toshiba NB550D comes with a 10.1-inch glossy display, but instead of running an Intel Atom CPU, like a typical netbook, the NB550D is based on the AMD C-50 CPU (1GHz) with ATI Radeon HD 6250 graphics. It also comes with a 250GB HDD & 1GB of RAM (it supports up to 4GB, but you'll have up upgrade to a 64-bit OS). The Toshiba NB550D featuring Harman Kardon speakers makes a good first impression with its soft rubberized finish and sound quality unlike any other netbook. This 2.6-pound device sports an EasyGrip finish on the lid that's available in lime, metallic brown, turquoise and blue."

PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
