ASUS Maximus VI Impact review: extreme Mini-ITX board
     Sun, Nov 03 2013 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Implementing all of the extra features that belong on an RoG board on a compact Mini ITX board was a challenge, and ASUS had to come up with some clever solutions. The components for the CPU power supply, for example, have been put on a vertical PCB, and the SupremeFX sound card is also located on a separate PCB (which benefited the audio quality). Extra features such as a debug HEX display were also put on an extra little PCB between the I/O connectors. ASUS definitely achieved squeezing a large amount of features onto very little surface area.

Cooler Master Cosmos SE
     Sun, Nov 03 2013 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Cooler Master Cosmos and Cosmos II are some of the best cases on the market as far as features and options go. They are also renowned for their sheer size as well; however, Cooler Master has gone and shrunk the venerable Cosmos just a tad and made a few other tweaks. The result is called the Cosmos SE and it might just be awesome. The Cosmos SE has a boatload of features I’m just dying to tell you about right now. Luckily for you, Cooler Master sent me over a Cosmos SE to check out, so let’s test it and find out if it’s as amazing as I suspect it will be.”

Posted by: STAFF
The product we are looking at here, is the Synology DiskStation DS414. It's a 4-bay NAS box with a lot of options.

The NAS box also uses their popular DiskStation Manager 2.0 software, but let us see how it performs.

Apple 27-Inch iMac (Late 2013) Review, Haswell Inside
     Sun, Nov 03 2013 | 12:02P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It's hard to believe there's a full fledged system packed inside Apple's slim and sexy iMac chassis. It was roughly a year ago when Apple revamped its all-in-one line, tasking the company's engineers to flatten the design as much as possible without sacrificing performance. What emerged was a sleek display measuring just 5mm at its edge with up to 40 percent less volume than the previous generation. It was such a radical design change that Apple had to abandon traditional welding methods in favor of a process called friction-stir welding, which combines friction-generated heat and pressure to force molecules from two separate aluminum surfaces to mingle with one another.

Nvidia G-Sync in action
     Sun, Nov 03 2013 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The G-Sync demonstration was very impressive, and it could very well have a very positive impact on PC graphics. For a final verdict it's of course too early. It will have to be thoroughly tested with a variety of hardware configurations and games. It’s a shame that consumers are forced to choose between this and AMD’s equally impressive Mantle and TrueAudio technology.

Crucial M4 SSD 128GB Review
     Sun, Nov 03 2013 | 12:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nothing gets my cooling fans going like a new hard drive! With that, I have yet to hop on the SSD wagon, until now. I have resisted as long as possible because even though the benchmarks were there, the prices just were not. Crucial thinks they can make me a believer and is trying to butter my biscuit with the M4 SSD…

     Sun, Nov 03 2013 | 11:08A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Thor Quad FHD tablet from iconBIT is quite balanced, featuring a Rockchip RK3188 Quad Core CPU at 1.6GHz, Mali MP-400 MP4 GPU, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of NAND Flash. Of course, we also have a microSDHC card slot for expanding the storage (supports up to 32GB cards).

Corsair Obsidian 750D Full Tower Case Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, Nov 03 2013 | 9:29A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Corsair Obsidian 750D case was recently released into the wild, unleashing its Full Tower goodness. This case is a smaller sibling to the Obsidian 900D and also takes on a lot of design queue from its smaller brother yet, the 350D. The first Obsidian case, the 800D was released late 2009, and has evolved to what you?re about to see today."

Lenovo IdeaCentre Erazer X700 Gaming PC Review
     Sun, Nov 03 2013 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If we asked you to name five gaming PC manufacturers, Lenovo probably wouldn't make the list. No other company in the world ships more PCs than Lenovo, but of those machines, relatively few are dedicated gaming boxes. Traditionally, Lenovo has focused its efforts on business class desktops and laptops, though the company is known to play in performance waters on occasion, most notably with its IdeaCentre K Series of high-end towers. These aren't hardcore gaming boxes like the boutique builders offer, however, so there's room in Lenovo's lineup to add a dedicated line of systems built exclusively for gamers, and that's what we have with the IdeaCentre Erazer X700...

"The Lian Li PC-A79 Full Tower Case is all aluminum, comes has lots of drive bays, fans, dust filters, USB3 ports, plenty of space to work, full size removable motherboard tray, cable management holes & is water cooling ready. The styling is simple, but elegant and the build quality is exceptional.

The VisionTek Radeon R9 280X is an excellent card in terms of performance. I threw it up against an SLI setup and in most cases it was able to out perform it and at a cheaper price too.

ASRock Z87 Killer and Z87 Extreme11/ac motherboards
     Sat, Nov 02 2013 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The most striking aspect of the Z87 Extreme11/ac is its 22 SATA ports. 16 of them can be used for professional SAS drives and are provided by LSI SAS3008 controllers. Two of the 22 ports are combined with two mSATA ports, located between the PCI-Express slots. Thanks to a PLX 8747 chip the board is suitable for both 4-way Crossfire and 4-way SLI. Other special features include two Intel Thunderbolt ports.
