ASUS GTX 670 DirectCU Mini OC Review @ Ocaholic
     Thu, May 16 2013 | 9:56A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
These day everybody wants to build a small form factor gaming rig. Since, the BitFenix Prodigy case came along we`re all crazy about these setups. When you actually start hunting for components for such a setup you find miniITX boards, nice cooler, obviously nice cases but when it comes to a gaming VGA, they are all way too long and disproportionate for miniITX boards. With the GTX 670 DirectCU Mini ASUS squeezed a fully fledged GTX 670 onto a PCB which is as short as a miniITX board but still the card offers a great cooler and good performance."

Ineo Alien Vibes W601 Speaker System Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Thu, May 16 2013 | 9:26A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to getting speakers sadly many people just simply go to the store and pick up what they have there and do not do any research at all. Speakers allow you to take the headphones off and share the music you are listening to. Today we are taking a look at an interesting 2.2-channel speaker system from a new company called Alien Vibes. The Alien Vibes W601 features a large dual subwoofer, dual 15-watt satellites, wooden construction and a built in card reader and USB port that you can use to play music from different devices. Will the W601 impress? Read on to find out."

Eagle Tech ET-ARHP300FS-BK Urban Zen Headphones
     Thu, May 16 2013 | 9:11A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As far back as i can remember i always watched movies (who can forget the Beverly Hills Cop, Baywatch and many other blockbusters of the 80`s) with gorgeous women running at the beach in their tight gym outfits or bathing suits while listening to their favorite music using the quite famous back then SONY Walkman cassette players. In real life however and more particularly where i live (can`t really speak about other places) that trend took almost 3 full decades to get here and so it wasn`t until 3-4 years ago that i started seeing people do the same this time however the then classic Walkman has naturally been replaced with smartphones and MP3/4 players. No matter however how many new headsets we see get introduced into the market each day we don`t really see anything unique in terms of design and for people who actually want to feel well with themselves while wearing them out in the open design and appearance does play a significant role. So to cater to those needs today we will be taking a closer look at the ET-ARHP300FS-BK Urban Zen Headphones by Eagle Tech."

Cooler Master N200 @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, May 16 2013 | 8:55A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the biggest down falls to having a smaller form factor case and motherboard has always been lack of room for aftermarket cooling solutions, namely water cooling. Cooler master has released the N series brand of cases, a new line that hopes to tackle the water cooling conundrum that many small form factor users are faced with. The N series is touted as a mainstream computer case aimed at the masses, a simple, cheap solution that will house all of the gaming essentials. And as an enthusiast, it might not be your next rig, but it could very well be a candidate for your next LAN rig or for a budding gamer friend."

Thermaltake Knucker Plunger Gaming Keyboard @ Benchmark Reviews
     Thu, May 16 2013 | 7:19A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In today`s throw away culture it seems that nothing is sacred anymore, spending ~$100 on a keyboard seems like nothing to some folks with seamlessly disposable income, but not all of us have that luxury. To this end Thermaltake`s Tt eSPORTS division have created the Knucker Plunger Gaming Keyboard (model: KB-KNK008). The Knucker Gaming Keyboard was designed and priced to sit part way between a regular rubber dome keyboard and a mechanical switch keyboard. The end result is what Thermaltake call `Plunger switch technology`, a semi-mechanical rubber dome setup that gives tactile feel of mechanical switches at a much lower cost. Here at Benchmark Reviews we aim to give you the information you want without all the hype, so you can make an educated decision for yourself. Read on to find out if the Knucker Keyboard is all that it promises to be."

[Tech ARP] BIOS Option Of The Week - Passive Release
     Thu, May 16 2013 | 6:56A | BIOS | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meager beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition. Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend. This week, we will be taking a look at the *Passive Release *setting."

Lenovo IdeaPad Z400 Touch Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Thu, May 16 2013 | 6:29A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Lenovo IdeaPad Z400 is a desktop replacement that hopes to bring some of the touch-friendly features of today`s smaller Ultrabooks along with it. It has a 14-inch touch display, an optical drive and strong performance, but the keyboard could be better and the battery isn`t removable."

Seagate Thin SSHD 500GB Full Review - Third Generation Hybrid
     Thu, May 16 2013 | 5:12A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Seagate appears to be leading the way in the mobile Hybrid drive market. Each and every generation has pushed the envelope further and come closer to native SSD speeds. The catch is those speeds are only attained for data that is in the cache, and the meager 8GB of flash seems to be holding these devices back when in the hands of more demanding power users with heavier workloads."

Ozone Blade Review @ Vortez
     Thu, May 16 2013 | 1:07A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In our second Ozone keyboard review we`re taking a look at the Blade. Designed with a membrane switch mechanism rather than the mechanical Strike, the more modestly priced Blade brings with it multiple profile support, macro keys and illumination for a more broadly rounded package suitable for gamers seeking to make their money go as far as possible."

Mad Catz M.O.U.S.9 Wireless Mouse
     Wed, May 15 2013 | 5:45P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A nice looking, feature rich and wireless compact mouse is one of the things i always wanted to marry with my notebook but to date i haven`t been able to find the ideal one. Microsoft and Logitech have released quite a few (some of which with good specifications) but none of those actually peaked my interest (nor caught my eye for that matter), at least not enough for me to actually pack one of them with my primary Toshiba Qosmio notebook. I did consider using the excellent wireless R.A.T.9 by Mad Catz a while ago but its size along with the external battery charging bay were a bit too much for use with a notebook. Well it seems that Mad Catz also thinks the same way as i and so they just launched the M.O.U.S.9 Wireless Bluetooth Mouse which looks a lot like the R.A.T.9 but takes less space, is more battery efficient and is much lighter."

Thecus N5550 Review @ Vortez
     Wed, May 15 2013 | 5:17P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Thecus, who were founded in 2004, had the vision of becoming industry leaders in digital storage technology. Fast forward to today and Thecus are exactly that. In a sector with huge names that dominate the market, Thecus can be proud of what they have achieved over the past 9-10 years. One model in particular has caught the eye which has tons of features, oozes style and screams quality, but how will it do in our tests?"
