Revised GeForce GTX 590 Cards In June
     Thu, Jun 16 2011 | 7:11A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Remember the horror of GeForce GTX 590 going up in smoke while benching? Well, apparently NVIDIA has found a way to solve this issue completely without doing a quick fix through the drivers. The solution : a much needed hardware fix where the new inductors are added to the card. However, the new inductors are larger in size therefore a change to the baseplate is needed."

Gigabyte GTX 560 OC
     Wed, Jun 15 2011 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The only con for this card would be the overclocking capability in comparison to the cooling. The card had plenty of overclocking room thermally but was held back by a lack of voltage. Overclocking is a gamble and this note shouldn't be held against the card considering it did decently. The card itself wasn't at fault as it was designed for quiet stability and not designed for hardcore overclocking. The overclock results were approximately 11% gain on the core and 12% on the memory."

Corsair TX750 V2 750W & TX850 V2 850W Power Supplies
     Wed, Jun 15 2011 | 4:02P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The printed circuit boards on both power supplies look identical but there are some differences. The values of two main smoothing capacitors in the top left hand corner are different on both boards and there are differences on the secondary side on the right hand side. These differences are good to see because it shows the board has actually been upgraded to cater for the higher power. The capacitors are all good quality Japanese branded components of the more welcome 105°C working temperature rating."

MSI Z68A-GD80
     Wed, Jun 15 2011 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Overclocking the MSI Z68A GD80 is in reality the same as overclocking the MSI P67A GD65. The same tools are used and in the end I came up with a slightly better overclock than I did on the P67A GD65 (by about 80MHz). To get to this level I worked exclusively in the Click BIOS and made adjustments to the CPU core voltage, memory voltage and for the most part, left the balance of the voltages on auto. When I did this though, I found that at the maximum clock speed the CPU would start throttling. By adjusting the "Long Duration power limit" from 95 to 110 I was able to eliminate the throttling. This gave me a good 4.96GHz clock speed that proves stable when the CPU is kept cool enough."

ECS H67H2-M & H67H2-I
     Wed, Jun 15 2011 | 4:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"In terms of performance, the H67 boards are going to offer a performance envelope that is almost identical from board to board when you have the same components installed. That was proved out by how close the performance was between the three boards in this comparison. When performance is the same across a platform then all that is left is the feature set and cost. In terms of price, the ECS Black Series H67H2-M comes in at the upper end of the pricing spectrum at $139. Not the highest price I have seen for an H67 board but at the upper end. For that $139 price point you get a full featured motherboard with many enthusiast level parts."

Kingston HyperX KHX1600C9D3X2K2/8GX 2x4GB DDR3 RAM
     Wed, Jun 15 2011 | 12:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Do you still remember the days when Intel's Pentium 4 was duking it out with AMD's Athlon 64, almost every enthusiast owned an ATI Radeon 9800 Pro, having 1GB of RAM was the gold standard, and 160GB hard drives were considered high end? As vivid as it could be in my mind, I still recall configuring my dream computer at my favorite online retailer -- clicking and adding things to the shopping cart, changing and subtracting components repeatedly -- on items I could only, well, dream of owning at the time. Those were also the days when there were only two brands of RAM you should consider if you wanted the best of the best: Kingston HyperX, and Corsair XMS. It wasn't until after that manufacturers like OCZ, G.SKILL, and Patriot took the enthusiast market by storm, and suddenly performance memory became everyone's object of desire. Fast forward to 2011, after owning dozens of kits from pretty much every major manufacturer you could name, somehow by chance no Kingston RAM has ever made it into any of my computers. But regardless of which, the HyperX brand has always held a special place in my heart as a signature of elite performance and quality. Is the original pioneer (Or at least, one of the first) of high performance enthusiast RAM really still the brand to buy? We plugged a Kingston HyperX Grey Series KHX1600C9D3X2K2/8GX 2x4GB dual channel kit into our labs, gave it a close look, and ran it through our standard series of tests to compose our review today. Read on to find out what we have found!

COMPUTEX 2011 Video Coverage – GIGABYTE Unveils New AMD 990FX
     Wed, Jun 15 2011 | 12:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD has been quiet for a little bit as INTEL rolled out their Z68 Series Boards. But now it’s time for AMD to make a little noise of their own. GIGABYTE’s Colin Brix takes us through their new AMD 990FX motherboards which supports all of Bulldozer’s 8-Cores on the new AM3+ socket. We talk specifically about their GA-990FXA-UD7 and the new GA-A75-UD4H Llano platform based on the L2 socket and A75 processor.

AZZA Toledo 301 Mid-Tower Case - BCCHardware
     Wed, Jun 15 2011 | 11:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I found the AZZA Toledo 301 to be constructed well. Its chassis is made of 1mm SECC steel. Although it has a lot of plastic on the front and top, it does not feel flimsy. The tool-less mounting system for HDD and optical drive was easy to use. It felt very secure. It has a Transformer?ish appearance that is very aggressive. The pre-installed fans are nice, but it could use at least 1x120mm fan in top to help with exhausting all the heat from the case. . ."

Sapphire Radeon HD6770 FleX
     Wed, Jun 15 2011 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The graphics card industry has undergone more than a few changes in the first half of 2011, including a branding shift within AMD itself. At the end of April, the manufacturer announced plans to introduce an updated version of their popular HD 5770 and HD5750. That upgrade has us today taking a look at the HD6770. In this case we will be taking a look at Sapphires FleX version of the card. Some of you may remember that we took a look at the HD5770 FleX last August, along with just about every other FleX model in between. The HD5770 FleX was given our Editors Choice; will its replacement do the same? In order to do that the HD6770 will still have to maintain a great price to performance ratio, something that may be hard to do with all of the great competition.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Ultralight Laptop Review
     Wed, Jun 15 2011 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new Thindpad X1 is a formidable system; it's generally being billed as Lenovo's champion of choice vs. the Macbook Air. That comparison makes sense based on the Air's visibility, but the X1 is set to compete across the entire spectrum, including new thin and light machines from Dell and HP. The specs for the machine we tested don't represent Lenovo's highest-end X1 configuration; the company sells two SSD-powered versions of the diminutive system as well...
