LGA 1155 motherboard
     Tue, Apr 05 2011 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"ECS really listened to gamers and the enthusiast community when they designed the P67H2-A. Users wanted the ability to use GPUs from AMD and NVIDIA together so they wouldn't have to buy new graphics cards for SLI or CrossfireX so ECS added Hydra Core technology. We proved the Lucid Hydra chip performed brilliantly in 3DMark Vantage and I'm sure it will work well with supported games too. The black PCB combined with the black and silver heatsinks really make this board look edgy and impressive."

ZALMAN ZM-F4 135mm Ultra Quiet Cooling Fan
     Mon, Apr 04 2011 | 4:03P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ZALMAN’s ZM-F4 cooling fan is a very unique product. For starters, it’s called a 135mm fan, but it’s actually able to mount into most 120mm spaces. That means that you can upsize pretty much any 120mm fan giving you the air flow of something a little larger. Check out the video review below for all you need to know…

Viking Modular SATADIMM 200GB SSD Review
     Mon, Apr 04 2011 | 4:00P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"There is no doubt that the most innovative SSD to come out of 2010 was the Viding Modular Solutions SATADIMM. Based on another 2010 standout, the SandForce SF-1000 Series controller, the SATADIMM is not only a great example of SSD technology revolutionizing the storage market, but also how thoughtful manufacturers can shape future standards. Viking Modular Solutions isn't a high volume manufacturer and you aren't going to find many of their products in the retail market. Viking is far from a one hit wonder, though. The company was started in 1988 and since their first product has been manufacturing high quality parts for the enterprise market space and for some of the world's largest OEM manufacturers. Vikings current product line-up consists of many memory products. You can find everything from standard 2.5" SSDs and memory DIMMs to the custom SATA Cube and SATADIMM. Today we are looking at the Viking Modular Solutions SATADIMM, a SandForce SF-1000 Series based SSD that is designed for the enterprise market, but is unlike the current crop of 2.5" SSDs that are in the channel now. To be more specific, the SATADIMM is a unique implementation that gives users the ability to run up to 400GB of capacity in a single DDR3 DIMM (memory) slot."

Today I will see how this USB 3.0 dock compares to a USB 2.0 dock. I am hopeful this dock will beat the older standard, and am somewhat excited to be dealing with this product – as it will be my first encounter with USB 3.0!"

Wesena ITX7 Mini-ITX HTPC Chassis Review
     Mon, Apr 04 2011 | 9:03A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Historically one of the hardest parts about going DYI (do it yourself) with a small form factor (SFF) home theater PC (HTPC) has been finding a nice mini-ITX case that actually looks like it belongs in the A/V stack. Until recently enthusiasts have had to choose between “the cube” and killing the pig for a benchmark chassis like the OrigenAE M10; fortunately Wesena is set to alter this dichotomy with their all aluminum ITX7 enclosure. Offering a sleek look, space for a slot loading optical drive and a built in infrared receiver we have the opportunity to take a look at the first revision of an interesting new entrant in this space.

Antec High Current Gamer HCG-750 Power Supply
     Mon, Apr 04 2011 | 9:02A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While Antec's new High Current Pro are certainly amazing units, if you don't necessarily need all that raw power, you may be asking: "So does Antec have anything other new PSUs worth investigating?" Oh, we're glad you asked! As it just so happens, they have also rolled out the High Current Gamer series as an alternative to the HCP models. These aren't a horribly de-tuned model either, as you still have multiple GPU support, the same high quality build and multiple 12v rails. On top of that, the looks of these Gamer models, is pretty dam attractive! So with that, we are pleased to bring you the HCG-750, or the 750W model from the new Antec High Current Gamer line.
