Posted by: STAFF
Futurelooks checks out a little Sandy Bridge powered board with some bite ... ECS Elitegroup H67H2-I LGA1155 Mini-ITX Sandy Bridge Motherboard Review Mini PCs are extremely enticing if you?re looking for something that can do most of what a full sized computer can do. This includes surfing the web and most productivity apps. While some are capable of HD playback, some aren?t as efficient when it comes to providing speedy video encoding, transcoding, and running many large applications at once. That means high performance gaming may not be an option. However, with the right platform, your own processor, memory, and video card of choice it?s possible to have it all and then some! Let?s have a look at the ECS Elitegroup H67H2-I motherboard and you?ll see how this is possible!"

Intel series 320 SSD review
     Mon, May 23 2011 | 12:02P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the Intel series 320 SSD. Armed with cheaper NAND flash memory this drive competes at the middle segment tagged with a decent price. But will it be enough to compete with the competition ? A product that offers performance somewhere in-between SATA 2 based Indilinx and SandForce 1200 based products, but at a more attractive price, at least that is the theory. The dynamic is interesting as the performance results today of the 320 series SSD will seem "so 2010", but it's an interesting concept as with cheaper memory, you can increase in volume size hence the review today is based on a dashing 300 GB SSD.

Mushkin Ridgeback 996991 PC3-16000 8GB
     Mon, May 23 2011 | 12:01P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"So, right out of the box I ran this Ridgeback set of memory at 133Mhz (2133MHz) higher than the rated specification with the same timings. To reach higher speeds than 2133MHz I had to use a combination of timings, voltage and blcock tuning to reach the final clock speed of 2252MHz or 252MHz over the rated frequency. For voltage, I had to push 1.69v through the modules to get 2252MHz stable. Tightening the CAS latency any more than 9 at this level resulted in the computer not posting. To reach a CAS latency of 8 with sane voltages. I had to drop to the 1866 multiplier and increase the bclock so that I could run just over 1900MHz at 8-9-8-27. CAS 7 took another reduction in frequency to to around 1684MHz at 7-8-7-24. Even when the CPU multiplier was increased to run the CPU at a higher speed to increase overall bandwidth, I did not see a significant increase in memory bandwidth from 3.4GHz to 4.7-4.8GHz in SiSoft Sandra 2011's memory bandwidth test. In the end, a 12.5% increase in clock speed offers up performance improvements but are tempered by the fact that the CPU is overclocked at the same time."

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.

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.
