G.Skill Ripjaws Series PC3-16000 8GB Kit
     Wed, Feb 16 2011 | 6:52P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Today we're looking at another kit of RAM from G.Skill and this one doesn't carry the new "X" tag at the end of the "Ripjaws" name, which means it isn't quite as hard core as the previous 2133MHz DDR kit we looked at. Instead, this kit carries with it a 2000MHz DDR clock, but is twice as large with the two modules coming in at 4GB each. This isn't the first time we've looked at a 2000MHz DDR kit on our new P67 platform; we recently looked at an OCZ kit and while the kit is indeed good, the divider options on the P67 mean that 2000MHz DDR can't be set without the BCLK moving. Of course, the P67 has also brought with it very limited adjustment when it comes to the BCLK, which on a whole has made overclocking a little different for most."

AMD Fusion Hits Retail: Zotac and Gigabyte E-350s Tested
     Wed, Feb 16 2011 | 6:52P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Recently, a smattering of products based on Zacate and its lower-power cousin, Ontario, have since begun trickling out to retail and we’ve gotten our hands on two of them for some in-house testing. Although they are based on the same AMD E-350 APU (Accelerated Processing Unit), the Gigabyte E350N-USB3 and Zotac Zbox Blu-Ray AD03 Plus are two very different products. The Gigabyte E350N-USB3 is a mini-ITX mobo featuring an E-350 APU targeting the DIY crowd, while the Zotac Zbox is a sleek, highly-integrated, full-featured HTPC...

Intel Demos Sandy Bridge Virtualization
     Wed, Feb 16 2011 | 6:51P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel took the wraps off their Sandy Bridge desktop and mobile platform back in January and with new technologies like an improved integrated HD Graphics engine, Quick Sync video encoding and Turbo Boost 2.0 dynamic overclocking, it was obvious that Intel was shooting for more than just a performance kick. Also, though perhaps a bit more low-key than some of the consumer-targeted bells and whistles, Intel also baked in a few key enhancements in the area of enterprise management and security. Intel's vPro badge has adorned notebooks and desktops in previous generation Core processor platforms and with Intel's latest incarnation, Sandy Bridge takes vPro capabilities to the next level.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti Overclocking Guide
     Wed, Feb 16 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. While the 1000MHz might not be obtainable with all GeForce GTX 560 Ti graphics cards, we are confident that almost all will handle 950MHz without a problem. In either case, gamers can enjoy performance gains as high as 15–20%.

ASUS HD 6970 DirectCU II - Triple Slot Monster Review
     Wed, Feb 16 2011 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With their DirectCU II version AMD shows its first high end AMD graphics card with a triple slot cooler. Until today only Gainward with their GLH series (Goes Like Hell) was known for their huge triple slot coolers but now also ASUS has such a monster in its portfolio. But overworking only the cooler would have been too easy. ASUS provided this card also with their own power design which is an indicator for good overclockability.

Patriot Division 2 Viper Xtreme PC3 15000 Memory Review

Posted by: STAFF
As a general rule of thumb you will see a significant performance increase whenever you can run your memory clock above the default 13.33x multiplier setting and that is what you will get from these modules. While the Patriot Division 2 Viper Xtreme modules may not have the best timings their overall performance is perfect for gaming and general purpose computing.

With the Sabertooth P67, ASUS has an Intel-P67 based motherboard in its portfolio that comes with some interesting features. Therefore very suspicious is the so called thermal shield. This plastic cover should allow an optimized airflow over the boards core components.

Sapphire Edge Mini PC
     Wed, Feb 16 2011 | 12:01P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I truly believe that Sapphire has found a sweet spot for media pc's. The Edge Mini PC really impressed me with it's design, performance and feature set. All my life computers have been getting smaller and smaller; but all of that didn't prepare me for the Edge. An enclosure the size of a paperback book containing a more-than-capable media PC was somewhat alien to me. Despite its tiny proportions, the design really catches your eye. Sleek curves and the wavy stand ensure it will fit in with any entertainment center. Connectivity, however, was sort of a mixed-bag. Though you're supplied with 4 USB 2.0 ports, HDMI and built in Wireless-N the lack of a camera card reader was quite surprising."

Sapphire Edge-HD Mini PC

Posted by: STAFF
“Housing an entire system in what is the smallest package we've ever seen, the Sapphire Edge-HD Mini PC appears to be a very capable little machine for consumers on a tight budget that don't have need of the cost or horsepower of a full-sized desktop system. But does smaller mean less, or do good things really come in small packages? Let's find out.”

Posted by: STAFF
"While there are several companies that produce wide ranges of strong gaming peripherals, everyone tends to have a bit of a speciality. Razer for their mice, Speedlink for their headsets, Steelseries for their keyboards and personally I'd throw one more in there, Mionix for their mouse pads. Today I'm looking at the latest from some of the best cloth pad creators in the world. Propus is it's name, let's see if it stands up to the strong reputation of its predecessors. "

The Lian Li PCV-354 is a larger version of the PC-Q08 with a few minor differences. The PC-V354 adds microATX support, an extra hard drive mount, two additional fans, and ships with a built-in memory card reader and fan speed controller.
