22-Way Mousepad Comparison
     Mon, Jul 09 2012 | 5:09P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Most gamers and professionals who require both speed and accuracy always focus in getting the best available mouse money can buy but always or at least most of the time they don`t focus nearly as much in getting an equally good mousepad (glide surface). To be honest with you i used to be like that up until around 6 years ago when i first got two Razer ExactMat aluminum mousepads one of which is still alive and kicking (quite tough). Now for the past 5 or so months Ive been gathering pretty much every single gaming oriented mousepad i can find in the market in an effort to see which offers the best bang for your buck and today after all these months of testing i can finally release this comparison. The products as clearly stated on the title are quite many so before you head to the next page you may want to take a look at the available information for each of the participating companies."

ROCCAT Savu Review @ Vortez
     Mon, Jul 09 2012 | 1:01P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
High optical DPI is not the only trick the Savu has up its proverbial sleeve though, it also has a the full functionality of Easy Shift[+] and a fully customisable light-bar allowing you to set the mouse to any one of 16.9 million colours. It also happens to use the highest quality materials throughout the design so aesthetically at least, the Savu seem to have it all wrapped up. Some might however say the beauty is only skin deep so we will be giving the Savu a thorough evaluation."

Cooler Master Storm Trigger Gaming Keyboard Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Mon, Jul 09 2012 | 12:04P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cooler Master launched their Storm Trigger into a cluttered peripheral market.  However, with Cherry MX Brown switches, an adjustable backlight, intuitive software and a relatively inexpensive price, they may just have what it takes to capture the hearts of gaming enthusiasts. "

AMD Vishera and Beyond: New Design Philosophy Dictates a Faster Pace
     Mon, Jul 09 2012 | 11:50A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD is staying busy and nimble, but they are at the tender mercies of the foundries at this time. Vishera does look to be a good upgrade from the original Bulldozer, and it will improve its standing among manufacturers and consumers alike. While it will not match Intels Ivy Bridge in pure performance, it does look to close the gap and be a true successor to the popular Phenom II line from AMD. This may not drive enthusiasts back into AMDs corner, but it will certainly stop a lot of the negative press and the bleeding of die-hard AMD fans into the Intel camp. Vishera does look to be the last desktop based AM3+ part. Past Q3 of 2013, I believe that AMD will focus primarily on the APU for all desktop applications, and start pushing those products into the server market."

CM Storm Sentinel Advance II Gaming Mouse Review @ Techgage
     Mon, Jul 09 2012 | 9:52A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It`s been close to three years since we took a look at Cooler Master`s Sentinel Advance gaming mouse, and now, we have its successor to test out. We`re dealing with a much improved sensor, have more internal memory to fill, and finally get a Storm Tactics button to make use of, so let`s see if CM`s latest is worth your $60."

CM Storm Sonuz Gaming Headset Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, Jul 09 2012 | 9:16A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Yes, Cooler Masters CM Storm Sonuz headset is a beast. 53mm drivers, 97mm earpads, detachable microphone, and a 3.5mm headphone jack, set the stage for a headset that is ready to climb in the ring with the big boys. But instead of dazzling you with virtual surround, the Sonuz is just going to hit you with raw power. Is its raw power strong enough to deliver a knockout punch? Continue reading to find out"

[Tech ARP] BIOS Option Of The Week - CPU Differential Amplitude
     Mon, Jul 09 2012 | 9:10A | 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 *CPU Differential Amplitude*setting."

Samsung HMX-QF20 Wi-Fi Enabled HD Camcorder - BCCHardware
     Mon, Jul 09 2012 | 9:03A | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
How do you do a camcorder right these days? You either have to have some insane quality that you can`t get in a smaller device, or you have to offer great functionality and convenience. Samsung HMX-QF20 tries to capitalize on quality, performance, convenience and features - all with an attractive price tag. They do this by using flash storage for your video (SD, SDHC or SDXC) and putting WiFi in the camera for backup, sharing and viewing convenience. . ."

REVIEW: MSI Z77-GD55 @ PureOverclock
     Sun, Jul 08 2012 | 1:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Prior to Ivy Bridge, MSI released their Z77A-GD65 motherboard and we had nothing but great things to say about the GD65. It performed as good as any product we tested and hit 5.2GHz on our Sandy Bridge 2600K. The motherboard boasted enthusiast features at lower price tier so we saw a phenomenal bang for the buck but since Ivy Bridge had not hit our lab at that point, we did not have the opportunity to see the beast unleashed. That was then and this is now, as we have a very similar board, the MSI Z77A-GD55 in our lab, and we also have the chance to compare Sandy Bridge with Ivy Bridge this time around. Can the GD55 match the prowess we saw in the GD65? Let`s get the Z77A-GD55 on the test bench and find out."

Cooler Master Storm Sentinel Advance II @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Jul 08 2012 | 12:04P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Most of you who have read any of my past mice reviews will know that I am very particular about them and have a strong hate of the Phillips Twin eye sensor that a good portion of the market has been using for a few years now due to a few of the sensors quirks. When I was introduced to Cooler Masters Gaming Accessories Product Manager, Carter Salley, he and I had one of the geekiest conversations about mouse sensors and our dislike of the Twin Eye sensor. When it was all said and done I was left very excited to see what Cooler Master would be coming out with in the future with someone like Carter as the wheel. Today I have in my hands their Sentinel Advance II, a revamped version of the Twin Eye equipped original, but without the god awful sensor. With a proper sensor onboard, it might very well be a mouse to consider."

Be Quiet! Dark Power Pro 10 750W Power Supply Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Sun, Jul 08 2012 | 9:52A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Be Quiet! Dark Power Pro 10 750W power supply is an 80 plus gold rated unit designed for high-end silent performance. The Dark Power Pro 10 750W power supply uses Be Quiet!`s own 135mm fluid dynamic bearing SilentWings 2 fan, optimized for low dB and long life performance. Surrounding the Dark Power Pro 10 power supply unit is a rubberized sleeve to further isolate the power supply from the vibrations caused by the chassis. Four additional case fan headers can be plugged into the Dark Power Pro 10 unit itself for lowering the ambient operating temperatures inside the chassis. To optimize case airflow even further, the Dark Power Pro 10 uses modular cables and provides a flexible wiring solution for all manner of high-end hardware combinations.///"

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
