Galaxis Ares Mid-Tower Case
     Tue, Feb 08 2011 | 4:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"We recently took a look at a case from Galaxis called the Atlus. The Atlus was the first case we have worked with from Galaxis and we were left wanting a bit more from the maiden offering. Today we are taking a look at an additional offering from Galaxis called the Ares. According to the box, the case is available in two color schemes: Black / Blue and Black / Red. Galaxis sent their blue variation, but it is nice to see more than just the typical blue being offered."

In Win IronClad Case Review
     Tue, Feb 08 2011 | 4:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"In Win's IronClad chassis has a lot to recommend it. The excellent cooling performance is probably its greatest asset, and the fact that this cooling comes at a relatively low noise penalty is just icing on the cake. A roomy interior that will mount just about any hardware you would want to throw at it is a big plus as well."

ASUS GTX 570
     Tue, Feb 08 2011 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The ASUS GTX 570 is a factory overclocked card, so I had high hopes for the clock speeds that this one would reach. NVIDIA's reference GTX 570 was able to reach clock speeds of 785MHz. Seeing as the ASUS GTX 570 was clocked just 43MHz below this, I knew it was going to surpass the reference overclock. In the end, we were able to up the core clock to an impressive 933MHz. Unfortunately we weren't able to get as large of an increase out of the memory clocks. We were however, able to up the memory speeds to 1092MHz. Last but not least, the shader clocks. The factory overclock put the ASUS GTX 570's shader clock at 1484MHz. We of course wanted to see a large increase in clock speeds, and that's just what we got. We were able to increase the shader clock speeds to 1866MHz."

Silverstone Raven 2 Evolution (RV02-E) ATX Case Review
     Tue, Feb 08 2011 | 12:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Released in late 2008, the original Silverstone Raven RV01 quickly caught my attention because of its strange orientation that pointed the motherboard upward at a 90-degree angle, so the "rear" I/O panel was placed on top of the enclosure instead of behind. Indeed, the RV01 was quite unique but it didn't execute the design as well as it could have, among the most common complaints: PSU placement and massive size. Silverstone was thus forced to be more creative with their next-generation Raven. The Raven 2 Evolution has a more efficient design, it is 24% skinner and 18% shorter than the RV01. The smaller dimensions have also allowed Silverstone to shed 17% of the overall weight. The new changes make for a very interesting computer case that maintains the unorthodox orientation, let's dive in for a closer look...

Sapphire Radeon HD 6950 2GB Unlocked to HD 6970
     Tue, Feb 08 2011 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Just recently we were given some exciting news. We found out that it was possible to flash the HD 6950 with a HD 6970 BIOS and in turn make your $299 HD 6950 a $369 HD 6970, and really we don't have to tell you how cool that would be. So we grabbed our closest HD 6950 to us which was a Sapphire and proceeded to flash it with a Sapphire HD 6970 BIOS. Thanks to our friends at TechPowerUp, we used WINFLASH, a Windows based program that gives you the ability to flash and save the BIOS of supported video cards."

Lenovo's exciting IdeaPad U1
     Tue, Feb 08 2011 | 9:03A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This afternoon's preview show event at CES2010 was deluged with journalists surging from one overcrowded display to another. One of the hottest tables was where Lenovo was showing a sample of its IdeaPad U1, an Intel driven Windows 7 mini-laptop with nicely curved corners whose screen detaches effortlessly into an Android-based iPad look-alike. Full details will be released tomorrow, and company reps could only provide pricing in China, where it is set at 3500CNY (US$530) for the tablet alone, and ~8000CNY(US$1200) for the combo. An earlier version was shown at CES 2010, with the tablet running Linux when undocked. The new version looks slick, fully functional, and could be a real crowd pleaser for those who want both a tablet and a notebook.

ASUS Eee Slate video demo from CES 2011

Posted by: STAFF
That tablets would pop up all over CES 2011 like daisies in the spring was no surprise to anyone aware of the iPad. The tablet market is expected to reach 50 million units this year, and virtually every major electronics/computer brand has at least one to vye for a piece of the pie. Industry giant Asus has three and possibly the most compelling of them for the "serious" computer user who wants one is the Eee Slate EP121-1A010M 12.1-Inch Tablet PC. As of yesterday, it was the most highly viewed computer accessory product in Amazon's catalog over the past few days. Read more to view our demo video of the Asus Eee Slate from CES.

In our first piece on Sandy Bridge aka LGA1155, we examine Intel's new high-end integrated graphics chip (if there is such a thing), GMA HD 3000. It has inherent advantages from residing on the same die as the CPU, and it also has a clever dynamic clock generator

3RSystem T.Rex L-1100 Cool Case
     Mon, Feb 07 2011 | 4:16P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Our first introduction to 3RSystems here at DreamWare Computers was our review of their iCEAGE 120 Prima Boss 2 HQ CPUcooler a few months back. This ended up being a great cooler - not only did it have exceptional heat dissipation capabilities, but also was silent in doing its job. Looking to succeed in the same way with their cases, today we will be featuring 3RSystem's T.Rex L-1100 Cool case. Will we have the same surprise we did as with the cooler, or will there be disappointment after seeing such a good product from them before? Read on to find out."
