Cooler Master Centurion 5 II Black and Red Edition: First Look
     Tue, Mar 15 2011 | 2:05P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So what is so special about this new Centurion case? To start with, the inside is not only black but red as well. Yep, this new Centurion sports a very bad-ass matte combo of black paint and red accented interior theme, which has been the basis of many a build and mods. Why isn't Cooler Master going to offer this case in the U.S.? We actually have no idea, but will have a ball reviewing it! (Which one never knows... if you show enough interest, we can forward CM the page-view count and maybe we'll see it released here after all!)

Posted by: STAFF
Today, NVIDIA officially announces the launch of the new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti graphics card. This is part of their "reloading" programme. Back in 2010, they released the GeForce GTX 480 and GeForce GTX 460 graphics cards (remember the Tank and the Sniper?). This year, they replaced those two cards with the GeForce GTX 580 and GeForce GTX 560 Ti. Now, it’s time to "reload" the GeForce GTS 450...

Nvidia GTX 550 Ti @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Mar 15 2011 | 2:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It seems like it was only a few weeks ago I was talking about Nvidia’s latest card the GTX560 Ti. Now here we are launching our review of the GTX550 Ti, the little brother to the GTX560 Ti. The GTX550 Ti fills the gap between the GTS 450 and the GTX 460, with its eye directly on AMD’s popular HD5770. With aggressive performance and pricing, Nvidia hopes to capture the budget market playing the same game AMD plays. How will it hold up against the aging HD5770, let’s take a look.

Gainward GeForce GTX 550 Ti 1GB Golden Sample Video Card
     Tue, Mar 15 2011 | 2:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Already impressed with what the GTX 550 Ti can do after looking at the MSI Cyclone II edition, it's now time to see what Gainward brings to the table with its highly popular Golden Sample series. This is a series that's been popular for years and in recent times we've seen them come out hard and fast offering strong cooling solutions, but more importantly fantastic out of the box overclocks that have resulted in excellent performance gains over other models. When Gainward has chosen to throw the OC tag on a model, especially the Golden Sample one, we know it means that the overclock is going to be strong verses other companies who have thrown the OC tag on and then offered us a small 10MHz core increase. Gainward today are offering us a core clock that gets into the quadruple digits and it will be interesting to see what that does for performance."

Seagate Barracuda Green 2TB & Momentus 750GB
     Tue, Mar 15 2011 | 1:49P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Barracuda Green 2TB is an attempt by Seagate to crack the low power consumption and excellent acoustics of low power desktop drives from WD and Samsung. The Momentus 750GB on the other hand doesn't have much to prove, coming from the same stock as the surprisingly quiet Momentus 7200.4 and XT.

With four Hybrid Synergy 12V rails, 105 °C Japanese made primary capacitors, MIA (Multiple Intelligence Ability) processor, active PFC (power factor correction), 80 Plus Gold certification (over 90% efficiency) and a five-year warranty the Aurum series of power supply units manufactured by the FSP Group maybe small in size but they are a force to be reckoned with.

6990 4GB dual Cayman GPU
     Tue, Mar 15 2011 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sure, AMD impressed everyone with the recent release of the Radeon HD 6990 4GB dual Cayman GPU graphics card, but we all know that NVIDIA is going to respond with the GTX 590 dual-GPU card at some point. But it looks like the gang at EVGA are tired of waiting as well and went ahead and built a combo-card that puts a pair of GeForce GTX 460 GPUs on a single PCB. Yes, 460s not 560s - obviously this a project that was made cheaper by using the widely available previous generation components.

Seagate 1TB Constellation.2 ST91000640NS Review
     Tue, Mar 15 2011 | 9:03A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 1TB Constellation.2 isn’t going to break any speed records with 115MB/s read and write but it brings to the table a unique set of features. Let’s start with the fact that by maintaining platter disks it makes these drives relatively affordable at just over $200 for a whopping 1TB enterprise quality space using SATA 6Gb/s interface. The 6Gb/s interface doesn’t boost the speed up too much but we do see small advantages over SATA 3Gb/s.
