Roccat Kulo 7.1 Virtual Surround headset
     Wed, Jun 08 2011 | 9:01A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Roccat recently sent us over the Kulo 2.0 headset. It did alright, but there were some issues. Already though, the peripheral maker has released a second edition, or an alternative version; this one coming with a virtual 7.1 surround sound card. It’s USB powered and has a reasonable price tag, but will it improve over its predecessor? Let’s see."

Auras Shagon ARC-118 Heatsink Review
     Wed, Jun 08 2011 | 9:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Auras Shagon ARC-118 heatsink is built around four 6mm diameter copper heatpipes and a 50x100mm aluminum fin stack. The heatsink features an exposed heatpipe base and utilizes a single 2400-1000RPM 92mm PWM fan for all its cooling needs. Since this heatsink is equipped with a 92mm fan, noise levels tend to be moderate at stock speeds and whisper quiet at minimum RPM. Total heatsink foot print is 101x88mm, its weight is 460 grams."

Cooler Master Storm Enforcer Chassis - BCCHardware
     Tue, Jun 07 2011 | 4:56P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall the Cooler Master CM Storm Enforcer is a solid case. It sells for about $80 on Newegg and can be found on several other websites for about the same price. The tool-less optical drive mounting system is user friendly and easy to use. There are more than enough areas to mount HDDs or SSDs. The removable HDD cage is nice if you are using very large video cards. . ."

AMD Radeon HD 6790 Overclocking Guide
     Tue, Jun 07 2011 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overclocking your graphics card is a very quick and easy way to get a little extra performance out of your system. The overclock we used when testing our Radeon HD 6790 should be considered as a maximum air-cooled overclock for this particular card. That said, we expect that almost all cards will reach 950MHz, which is still an impressive 110MHz increase or 13% boost in frequency.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 590 (3072MB)
     Tue, Jun 07 2011 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Gigabyte version of the GeForce GTX 590 is a very impressive graphics card, even if it does follow the Nvidia reference design to a tee. However the inclusion of the Gigabyte M8000Xtreme gaming mouse is very nice, as is the package that it all comes in. Gigabyte has also included a Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort female cable adapter which allows those with a standard DisplayPort cable to use this feature

Logisys Blue LED Cooling Stand
     Mon, Jun 06 2011 | 5:17P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Logisys Blue LED Laptop cooling stand is a great little laptop cooler with 3 built in fans (one 120mm Blue LED fan, and two 70mm High efficiency fans). This cooler, rated for Laptops up to 15.4 inches, is great for standard business size laptops. With no required power cords (the cooler is powered from the laptop USB port), this is a perfect cooler for the user that does not want clutter on the desktop. The Hardware-Pacers staff found that this cooler worked perfectly for laptops of the recommended size. Hardware-pacers did not stop there, however, and placed a few 17 inch laptops on this stand. The stand did not work very well with laptops that were larger in size (the laptop would slide off the stand easily), so our staff recommends that this cooler is used only for the laptops that are 15.4 inches and smaller. For laptops of that meet the requirement size, this is a great little cooler."

Samsung SMX-F50 Camcorder
     Mon, Jun 06 2011 | 4:03P | Imaging | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"If you walk into an electronics store it won't take but ten minutes to see that high definition is now everywhere. You can only buy high definition TVs, high definition camcorders are over abundant, computer monitors are now taking on standard high definition resolutions, and even our tiny smartphones are going HD! Despite all this, there is still a small market of standard definition products to be found out there. Why? Older technology is cheap and can help you save a dime on a tight budget. Here today I have one of Samsung's latest standard definition camcorders, the SMX-F50."
