Seasonic X Series 760W
     Thu, Feb 03 2011 | 12:00P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Seasonic X-Series 760W power supply comes well packaged with a great set of accessories. I don’t know why, but it just oozes quality when you pick it up and on further inspection the build quality is confirmed. I’m not a fan of fully modular power supplies, I can’t see the point of a modular motherboard cable for example, but it works here and works very well."

Kingwin DM-2356 Dockmaster II Review
     Thu, Feb 03 2011 | 9:03A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Consumers who like to upgrade their computer(s) often, or even upgrade once for that matter, have a need for a product like the one I'm about to show you here. Have you ever had a computer crash on you and you lost all your data? Sucks huh? There is nothing more gut-wrenching then losing a decade's worth of your irreplaceable children's pictures because you didn't take the few minutes once in a while to back them up. Backing up one's data is of the utmost importance for today's consumers. So much of our lives have gone digital, with pictures probably ranking first on the list for non-replaceable data. Sure you could burn a bunch of CD's or DVD's (or even blu-rays now), but that is not nearly as configurable as a hard drive of some sort."

There's also Internet connectivity with lots of applications to enhance your experience. However Samsung decided to leave out something that most others include: a pair of 3D glasses.”

ADATA HM-1200 1200W Power Supply
     Thu, Feb 03 2011 | 12:07A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"ADATA has always been a well known manufacturer of memory and storage products. In early 2010, the company announced that it was entering the power supply market with the introduction of the Horus series of power supplies. The HM series comes in five different flavors ranging from 500W all the way up to 1200W, providing something for just about everyone. Today we have their HM-1200 on the bench to see how their first entry into the power supply market performs. The ADATA HM-1200 promises to provide you with just about all the power you could ever use, even with dual processors and multiple GPU's in a single system. The 1200W of power is split between a pair of 12V rails and some seriously beefy 5V and 3.3V rails. To make full use of the 1200W, ADATA offers up a hefty amount of cables and connectors that will make sure you can power systems where cases are packed to the max with drives, GPU's and more."

: HyperX MAX 3.0 128gb Portable USB 3.0 SSD
     Thu, Feb 03 2011 | 12:07A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"One way to take advantage of this bus speed is to pair a speedy Solid State Drive (SSD) with an enclosure using USB 3.0. Kingston is one of the first to enter this market with the release of its HyperX MAX 3.0, their external SSD based USB 3.0 drive. This drive uses flash memory in place of a mechanic drive which provides advertised read speeds of up to 195MB/sec and writes up to 160MB/sec. Kingston offers the HyperX MAX 3.0 in three capacities – 64GB, 128GB and 256GB. "

Zalman Z9 Plus Case Review
     Thu, Feb 03 2011 | 12:06A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Previously known for offering only high-end and expensive products, recently Zalman decided to offer entry-level products as well, like the Z7 and Z9 case series. The Z9 series, which is the latest release from the South Korean company, comes with two models: Z9 (USD 50) and Z9 Plus (USD 70). Let's see if the Z9 Plus is a good option. Both Z9 and Z9 Plus are based on the same body, but the Z9 Plus comes with the following features that are not present on the standard Z9:"

Xigmatek Aegir SD128264 CPU Cooler
     Thu, Feb 03 2011 | 12:06A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It has been awhile since we last saw any Xigmatek products surface from the pages of Pro-Clockers, but that changed a few days ago when we received a hefty box from them. The first item is the biggest and baddest of those in the box, and what we will be bringing you today: the Aegir SD128264 (to make it easy, we'll just call it Aegir). This new cooler utilizes Xigmatek's latest update to the direct touch technology which they are calling Dual Layer H.D.T. The sheer size when combined with this new technology should make the Aegir one cooler not to be reckoned with. Lets take a look at this thing and see if it is lived up to our hype!

Lian Li Mini-Q PC-Q08 @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Feb 02 2011 | 12:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There's only one thing worse than having to pack up a 70-pound gaming rig to go to a LAN party: Packing two. Being married to a gaming girl is wonderful but it does have the downside that I have to pack up and transport two rigs for every LAN we travel to. After building a Shuttle for myself it was only a matter of time before I miniaturized her rig also. Looking for any excuse to upgrade her I contacted Lian Li about a Mini ITX case that they carried and went on with selecting the rest of her parts list. That case is the Lian Li Mini-Q PC-Q08, with Lian Li’s style and quality I have high hopes!

ASRock P67 Extreme4 & Fatal1ty Professional P67 Motherboards
     Wed, Feb 02 2011 | 12:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Today we have two of ASRock's P67 based boards on our test bench and will be putting them through a selection of real world and synthetic tests. To keep things interesting for those who have already seen a number of P67/Sandy Bridge articles, in this review we will put the ASRock systems up against the similarly priced X58 / Core i7-950 combination to see if these new products offer better performance and value for consumers than Intel's now ageing high end platform."

ASUS P8P67 WS Revolution Review

Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

With the P8P67 WS Revolution ASUS has a first workstation motherboard in its portfolio supporting Intel Sandy Bridge processors. The board itself should be very stable and there should also be an extensive delivery included. If even the performance is on a reasonable, good level that's what we will uncover on the following pages.

     Wed, Feb 02 2011 | 12:00P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At first glance a lot of people may not appreciate the usefulness of a hard drive dock, but when you have to access a friend or relatives drive to recover data they are a welcome piece of equipment. Thanks to the latest update to Thermaltake’s BlacX line, the BlacX 5G now utilizes USB 3.0 making it not only handy but fast as well.
