Cooler Master CM Storm Enforcer Case Review
     Mon, May 23 2011 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Cooler Master’s CM Storm line is geared towards gamers and rightfully so. The line is made up of cases, gaming peripherals, gaming surfaces, and notebook coolers. For some reason we here at ThinkComputers have not had a chance to take a look at any of the CM Storm cases. Today however we will get that chance with the recently released CM Storm Enforcer case. This case has a mean look to it hence the name Enforcer. It also features USB 3.0 connectivity, room for 2.5-inch drives and great cable management. Let’s check it out!"

Thermaltake Level 10 GT Full Tower Case Review
     Sun, May 22 2011 | 8:27P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Futurelooks checks out the little brother to the legendary Level 10 chassis ... Thermaltake Level 10 GT Full Tower Case Review If you?re a computer enthusiast, then you?ve probably heard about Thermaltake?s Level 10 computer case, which was designed in conjunction with BMW Designers. You probably dreamed about owning the sizeable aluminum case and where the $800 USD needed to buy one, will come from. The reality for most of us is that we just aren?t able to afford one. But, that doesn?t mean we?re completely out of luck."

In Win BUC Gaming Computer Chassis
     Sun, May 22 2011 | 4:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In Win shows no signs of stopping either, as they have recently released another gaming case. The new BUC has very little similarity in terms of the looks of the two Dragon models mentioned, but nevertheless a look we feel a lot of gamers and enthusiasts will be drawn to. Being bigger than the Slayer but smaller than the Rider, the BUC offers several tool-less features and plenty room to build a nice gaming rig within.

Seagate Barracuda ST3500418AS 7200.12 SATA
     Sun, May 22 2011 | 4:02P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I’ve got another hard drive for review today; it’s another Seagate model 7200.12 but it’s a slim style drive, it’s only one inch thick. The drive runs quiet and cool and it’s a decent performer, it would be great for an HTPC, or anywhere a smaller drive is needed. "

ECS P67H2-A2 @ Phoronix
     Sun, May 22 2011 | 12:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Now that the initial Intel Cougar Point chipset problems have been resolved, there is a plethora of motherboards on the market that support the latest Sandy Bridge processors. For enthusiasts, the current high-end SNB-supportive chipset is the Intel P67, of which there are also many different motherboards from various vendors. One of the P67 motherboards that attempts to provide some of the high-end features while at a mainstream price-point is the ECS P67H2-A2. This Elitegroup motherboard retails for less than $200 USD while it ships with two PCI Express x16 slots, USB 3.0, Serial ATA 3.0, and ECS overclocking features."

Noctua NH-C14

Posted by: STAFF
Currently tower-type coolers are known offer the best cooling performance, so it surprised us a bit to see a new top-flow CPU cooler from Noctua. We were even more surprised by the performance delivered which is better than any other cooler we tested before, including tower-type models.

[Tech ARP] BIOS Option Of The Week - SDRAM Active to Precharge Delay
     Sun, May 22 2011 | 11:07A | 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 Active to Precharge Delay BIOS setting."

After making friends with the development version of ASUS’ Transformer tablet, you may rest assured that you won’t miss it easily. Its excellent production quality and a seamless match of its two sections, as well as a stunning user interface (Android 3.0) and extraordinary concept, all make for something to capture your attention for an extended period of time…

ASUS P8P67 Motherboard Review
     Sun, May 22 2011 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With Intel finally launching Sandy Bridge we can now reveal the performance aspect of the much anticipated ASUS P8P67 motherboard that will operate within the mainstream segment of the LGA1155 lineup. Some weeks ago now we gave readers a preview of the ASUS P8P67 and we were forced to withhold any performance related results until now. Yesterday we published the current range of Intel 6 Series / Sandy Bridge processors 2300, 2400 & 2500K Review. That article revealed some rather significant results, showing that the 2500K chip in particular is a 'diamond in the rough'. Those tests were made possible by the ASUS P8P67 which we will be looking at today. It's great that we have a comparison to analysis with regards to the processors, but the real question now is - how does this P8P67 compare against other P67 motherboards?"

Lian Li WB-01 Metal Wheel Kit Review
     Sun, May 22 2011 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Everytime I go to a LAN party, I get asked the same question: "Where did you get wheels for your case?". You see, my favorite case is one I've had for several years, the Lian Li V-1000 (click to see a shot of this wheeled case), which comes with great-looking aluminum metal casters. My response is that these wheels came with the case. Now I've found that you can buy these Lian Li WB-01 Metal Case wheels seperately, and install them onto any PC case. The WB-01 wheel kit comes with a front and back set of wheels, rubber wheel covers (aka "tires"), and a bag of screws and nuts. The two wheel sets are secured to a mounting base with a full-length axle, and the base has four pre-drilled screw holes. The back set of wheels has a pull-out brake lever which prevents a square peg at the center of the axle from moving, thus preventing movement. The lever is designed to move the square peg if not already in proper alignment, which prevents any possible jamming.

MSI P67A-GD80 Socket 1155 Motherboard
     Sun, May 22 2011 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Intel's Sandy Bridge platform got off to a strong start at the 2011 CES earlier this year before an issue with the P67 chipset sidelined motherboard production for several weeks. The chipset design error wasn't catastrophic by any means and likely wouldn't cause any issues for years to come, but it certainly needed to be corrected regardless. Board manufacturers worked with Intel to replace "bad" boards with those featuring the revised B3 chipset and business is pretty much back to normal at this point."

ASUS Radeon HD6970 2 GB DirectCU II
     Sat, May 21 2011 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It was some time ago that we first got the idea of making a comparative test of two cards that are in high demand among hardware enthusiasts. The chance arose when two almost identical cards got to our offices, courtesy of ASUS. Situations such as these, where you have the chance to compare graphics cards with entirely different GPUs under the same conditions, are rare to say in the least. Even if performance is comparable, cooling systems are usually not. Furthermore, every manufacturer has its own PCBs, layouts etc. However, this is one such situation, since ASUS provided us with cards from their DirectCU II series. We’ve already explained countless times how this series first got its name, so no need to repeat all the “theory” again. Suffice to say - an even-handed melee between Radeon HD 6970 and GeForce GTX 570. If this phrase is enough to get you going, you’re the proper audience for such a showdown, so sit back and enjoy the following lines…
