Review: Corsair CX430 @ Ocaholic
     Thu, Nov 15 2012 | 2:51A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we`re going to have a look at a product, which is actually not aiming at high-end or enthusiast users. But still, at a first glance it looks like Corsair did a good job with creating their CX430 power supply. It could very well be that this little fellow is a perfect companion for a BitFenix Prodigy build for example."

     Thu, Nov 15 2012 | 2:47A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Following yesterday`s ADATA review we will have a look at another 16GB memory kit today. The kit belongs to GeIL`s new Evo Veloce series and consits of two 8GB modules running at DDR3-1866 MHz CL10-10-10-32 with 1.5v. Nothing really special on the paper but once we started to play around with this kit we have been surprised. In good or bad? You will find out in the following pages!"

CM Storm Scout II Mid-tower Case Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Wed, Nov 14 2012 | 11:25P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The CM Storm Scout II is the latest chassis from Cooler Master`s gaming line and improves upon its popular predecessor. The new CM Storm Scout II retains the signature pair of side carrying handles but now features a third rubber lined-steel reinforced handle in the middle for portability. Internally, the CM Storm Scout II supports a 240mm radiator on top, video cards up to 287mm/11.3 inches long (399mm/15.7 inches without the HDD cage), and CPU coolers up to 162mm/6.4 inches tall. A recessed front-panel I/O houses a pair of USB 2.0 ports, a microphone and headphone jack as well as a pair of USB 3.0 ports. There is only one pre-installed 120mm LED fan in the rear but additional fans can be installed at the top (120mmx2), front (120mmx2 or 140mmx1), bottom (120mm x1), left side panel (120mm x 2) or HDD cage (120mm x1).

A Futurelooks News Flash - Fractal Designs Define R4 ATX Computer Enclosure Reviewed
     Wed, Nov 14 2012 | 11:16P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Based in Sweden, Fractal Design has been designing cases and marketing them in the UK since 2007. Over the last couple years, theyve continued to carve a swathe out in the American market thanks to their immaculate and contemporary designs. Once upon a time Antec offered similar style, but has since stopped, leaving a void amongst the DIY users who are looking just for what Fractal has to offer. Their vision is one of close attention to detail, balanced features, and a clean less is more image. Those concepts are found in many computer enclosures including the one were reviewing today. *"

NZXT Phantom 820 Full-Tower Chassis - BCCHardware
     Wed, Nov 14 2012 | 11:04P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Once I had everything ready to go I fired this bad boy up. Immediately I wanted to play with the LEDs. This case looked cool out of the box, but the LEDs are the icing on the cake. The top and front are accented with LED lit fiber-optic bars that match the inside LED lighting. The controls for the LED system are simple as well. There is a rotary selector that allows you to cycle thru any color in the RGB spectrum. . ."

Corsair Carbide Series 200R Case Review
     Wed, Nov 14 2012 | 10:45P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are times when new cases come to me and I have no real strong feelings one way or the other about them. Those cases are usually average in performance and features at a given price point. I`m pleased to say that not only is this not one of those cases but also that this chassis really is outstanding in many ways. The asking price of $59.99 is extremely low when you look at the overall package that you get for that small amount of money. The Corsair Carbide Series 200R is roomy on the inside with plenty of room to route your wiring however your heart desires. There`s ample room for long GPUs without obstructing the use of the 2.5 and 3.5 drive bays. The 5.25 external bays are tool-less as are the 2.5 and 3.5 drive bays. There are mounting points for an additional five 120mm or 140mm fans and there is ample room for a self-contained water cooling system or even a custom loop if you`re feeling creative."

TRENDnet TPL-406E 500Mbps Compact Powerline AV Adapter Review
     Wed, Nov 14 2012 | 1:51P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Many people seem to have a hard time leaving the convenience of their local Wi-Fi network although they all know that it can`t actually reach the throughput data transfer speed of a wired connection. Wiring a brand new house with Ethernet (CAT5/6) cables may not be quite easy but it`s also the most ideal solution if you want the best possible performance for your local network (although it can get somewhat expensive). However for old houses/structures that is not really possible (unless you don`t care having them around) and so in such cases you can either rely on a Wi-Fi connection or on Powerline adapters. Of course since Powerline adapters practically use the electrical wirings of the structure their performance is directly affected by their quality/age. Still even so Powerline adapters are quite faster than most Wi-Fi connections (especially when the modem/router is not near) something which we`ve proven time and again through our reviews. This time however in our lab we have the smallest Powerline adapter in the market to date, the TPL-406E 500Mbps compact powerline AV adapter by TRENDnet."

3-D Tools: Amazing Programs for Product Design at TechwareLabs
     Wed, Nov 14 2012 | 12:44P | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Every product used today was first brought to life by industrial designers. Designers are the people behind the scenes designing and perfecting our everyday luxuries: Cars, phones, watches and kitchen appliances. They also develop the packaging for food, beverages and candy. Recently the Hershey Company partnered up with the Academy of Art University, asking graphic design students to design packaging for the delicious chocolates for Valentine`s Day packaging, which will debut in January 2013."

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
