SilentiumPC Gradis XE1236 CPU Cooler @ nikktech.com
[Sep-04-14] (0 Comments)

Yesterday we had to turn on both air conditioners to keep thetemperature in our lab at 23 degrees in order to wrap up some tests sinceaccording to our Oregon Scientific weather station temperature outside wasroughly 33 degrees Celsius. Summer is (almost) over however and so i expecttemperatures to drop rapidly by the end of September which is good news forus since that will allow us to do our jobs easier. Now as most of you knowIntel announced their X99 mainboard chipset a few days back along with theirnew 59xx line of Core i7 CPUs and although we will not be reviewing either(well we may just review the mainboard model we will be using) we plan onreplacing our Core i7-920 system with a brand new Core i7-5930x one whichwill of course become our primary test rig and move our Core i7-3930x one insecond place. Until that happens however we will continue to test productswith our Core i7-3930x rig and today strapped on it we have the latestGradis XE1239 CPU Cooler by SilentiumPC.

Thermaltake Water 3.0 Extreme Liquid CPU Cooler @ nikktech.com
[Aug-10-14] (0 Comments)

With the introduction of the first 120mm AIO (All In One)Liquid CPU Coolers a few years back regular users/consumers could now enterthe water cooling world without the extra cost and work required whenpurchasing a custom kit. Of course it may have all started with the two mostwell-known AIO manufacturers in the world (namely Asetek and CoolIT) whichin turn rebranded their solutions for a number of companies like Antec,Thermaltake and Corsair but now even more have joined up making the battlemuch fiercer than what it used to be. Competition is always a good thinghowever and so aside lower prices this has also brought forth theintroduction of 240mm and 360mm AIO liquid CPU coolers which in some caseseven offer performance comparable to custom water cooling kits. Thermaltakejust released the Water 3.0 Ultimate a massive 360mm AIO liquid CPU Coolerbut until that makes it here we decided to check their Water 3.0 Extreme240mm AIO liquid CPU cooling solution.

BitFenix Flo Premium PC Headset @ nikktech.com
[Aug-09-14] (0 Comments)

Back in the old days the only people i knew who used fullsized closed headphones were either in the music/radio industry or they wereaudiophiles who just wanted to listen to their favorite tunes without havingto worry about what people around them would say (yes usually at very highvolume levels). Now well things have changed a lot since people useheadphones and headsets for all sorts of things from listening to musicwhile at home or on the road and answering and making calls from theirsmartphones up to watching movies and playing their favorite games. As amatter of fact the market for headphones and headsets is so large right nowthat even several PC case manufacturers have decided that they too want apiece of it. One of them is BitFenix and since their PC cases always seem tohit the bulls eye between price and features i hope the same applies fortheir latest Flo Premium PC Headset.

Unfortunately to this day the consumer orienteddevices that feature wireless charging are far from what i had hoped to seeback then so in order to use wireless charging you need to place yoursmartphone on special Qi pads which only work with Qi compatible devices(since factory-ready Qi devices are quite rare Qi cards exist that addcompatibility).

Crucial MX100 512GB SSD @ nikktech.com
[Jun-28-14] (0 Comments)

As technology progresses prices for current and previousgeneration devices keep falling and that has allowed solid state drives(SSDs) to become mainstream quite faster than many of us had hoped for whenwe first started to receive the very first ones to appear in the marketroughly 6 years ago. Of course compared to regular mechanical hard diskdrives (HDDs) the difference in price/capacity ratio is still somewhat largebut at least now one can get an high performance 256GB SSD model for lessthan 0.7$ per GB. Price however is not the only thing that has improved thestanding of SSDs in the market since with the appearance of 1TB models andthe recent announcement of 2TB ones professionals can now have superior read& write speeds at very large capacities (always compared to the past).Crucial just recently announced their own offering for such audiences themid-end MX100 SSD model which is currently available in 128,256 and 512GBcapacities (with us we have the 512GB model).

Be Quiet! Pure Power L8 700W Power Supply Unit @ nikktech.com
[Jun-24-14] (0 Comments)

With the rather recent appearance of 80 Plus Titaniumcertified power supply units in the market (some of which rated up to 1500W)hardcore overclockers and enthusiasts alike have found yet another reason toreach deep down their pockets for a brand new and rather costly upgrade. Forgood or bad the ultra-high-end power supplies cost quite a bit and in theend are mostly suited for use with really power hungry systems so casualconsumers have really almost no need for something like that. On the otherhand 80 Plus Bronze and Silver power supplies are far more affordable,feature quality components, come in both low and high power outputs andoffer very good performance levels. For the past 2 days one such solutionhas been lying on our test bench, the Pure Power L8 700W (L8-700W) PSU by bequiet!

Patriot SuperSonic Rage XT 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive @ nikktech.com
[Jun-20-14] (0 Comments)

Storage capacity needs increase on a daily basis and with themso does demand and thus in the end those two result in more competitionbetween companies and lower prices (at least most of the time). Think aboutit, just two years ago i was running around carrying an 16GB USB flash drivewith my keychain while now i have attached a permanent 32GB one which isometimes replace with an 128GB one if i need to carry way too much datawith me. The good news is that unlike a year ago today there are plenty ofUSB 3.0 compatible 128GB flash drives for one to choose from in the marketand so we took it upon ourselves to get our hands on as many as we can tocheck and see what you can expect in terms of read & write performance.Today on our test bench we actually have a familiar drive and morespecifically the highest capacity model from the SuperSonic Rage XT line byPatriot Memory.

Thanks to both Chris Robertsand David Braben these two space sim titles alone may be more than enough tocause a serious ripple effect in the gaming industry not only because bothare solely funded via crowd funding and thus many more will most likelyfollow in the near future but also because fans of both legends will bewilling to spend quite a bit in order to play these games at maximumgraphics (trust me when i say they are more than just worth the investment).Of course joysticks, gaming keyboards and mice will be the primaryperipherals people will look to get and so today we are taking a look at onesuch peripheral the latest RIVAL Optical Gaming Mouse by SteelSeries.

Seagate Enterprise Capacity 3.5 V4 6TB SATA III HDD @ nikktech.com
[May-24-14] (0 Comments)

Last night while i was discussing the future of hard diskdrives with my cousin it just occurred to us that just roughly 5 years agostorage capacities at around the 3.2GB mark were considered as quite largeand not everyone could afford even just that. Fast forward to today andthings have changed in an massive degree due to the advancement oftechnology and the continuous price drops since most people own at least asingle 2TB (2000GB) drive while others even use several 4TB (4000GB) drivesto cover their needs. Of course ultra-high capacities like the secondexample are primarily useful for people who obviously have huge storageneeds (namely professionals) and so casual users are not really included.However for people who do have huge storage needs even 4TB HDDs are notnearly enough to cover those needs and so the recent appearance of 6TB HDDsis without doubt great news. Today we will be taking a look at 3 of thelatest Enterprise Capacity 3.5 v4 6TB SATA III hard disk drives by Seagatein both single and RAID0 tests.

QNAP SilentNAS HS-210 NAS Server @ nikktech.com
[May-22-14] (0 Comments)

Judging by sales numbers around the globe it seems that NASservers have finally managed to replace full computer systems in some areasdue to their size, low power consumption and easy to use menus andfunctions. This of course applies mostly to large enterprise environmentswhere several such devices get used and thus the benefits from the mentionedfeatures are even greater. Small business and home users also turn towardsNAS servers to cover their needs (mostly for office use) but to my knowledgeat least not many people actually choose to use NAS servers purely for theirmedia sharing capabilities and the ones that do never really place theminside their bedrooms to avoid getting disturbed by their noise levels (evenjust 20dBA is quite audible at night). QNAP is the first NAS manufacturer toaddress that issue by releasing the first dual bay model of the SilentNASseries called the HS-210.

QNAP TS-470 NAS Server @ benchmarkreviews.com
[Jan-08-14] (0 Comments)

The QNAP TS-470 Turbo NAS is part of a new model line that brings a higher level of performance to the small tower-based format. The TS-x70U rack mount series which launched earlier this year served up the basic technology package that’s been slimmed down here, in order to fit into the smaller form factor. The new TS-x70 towers are being promoted as business-class NAS servers, based on their high performance and networking package, but QNAP includes an HDMI port and IR receiver for good measure. Also included in the base package is a 2-port GbE NIC, installed in the PCIe expansion slot. Most business users will be able to increase the network throughput of this NAS with Port Trunking, thereby making effective use of all four GbE ports on the rear panel. Those who need more bandwidth can just replace the 2-port NIC with a 10GbE model.

There are so many keyboard manufactur ers out there, that there is a venerable cornucopia of keyboard options ava ilable to consumers today. In an attempt to win the consumer over there com petitors iteration of the gaming keyboard, they have become more functional and fashionable. Unfortunately, as we have seen to many times here at Tech wareLabs, fashion and function dont always mix. The trend of sleek and styl ish hit the keyboard market some time ago, and the market was flooded with membrane or chiclet style keyboards that looked great, but as time passed, failed to hold up to the heavy use and performance scrutiny of serious game rs. So, were seeing a reemergence of old style mechanical keyboards in the gaming keyboard market.

When the BitFenix Prodigy was released last year, it expanded on the idea of how much performance could fit in a small case. There were some users (me included) that felt the original Prodigy was just a little too big for an ITX box ‚Äď responding to customer feedback, BitFenix wanted to provide a more streamlined option for those users that wanted all that the Prodigy had to offer in a more compact package. With essentially the same internal layout as the original Prodigy, the new BitFenix Phenom (model BFC-PHE-300-WWXKK-RP) caters to those that want something a little more minimalistic with airflow taking a backseat to looks and finesse. Benchmark Reviews is ready to look inside and see how much of the Prodigy legacy stays intact with the BitFenix Phenom ITX case.

When it comes to high-end full-tower cases, a few models immediately come to mind:Corsair’s 900D, Thermaltake’s Level 10 GT, Cooler Master’s HAF-X, and a couple others. There isn’t nearly as much variety for E-ATX compatible cases as there is for cases that support ATX and Micro-ATX motherboards. Perhaps this why Phanteks was keen to release their first case into this category. Enter the Enthoo Primo, A premium full-tower aluminum body case with numerous new features and great compatibility for water-cooling hardware. Phanteks is among the best manufacturers of computer case fans and CPU heatsinks, so one would expect that their genius in cooling innovation would carry over to the Enthoo Primo. It is quite clear that Phankteks aims to make a statement with this new case; It will be competing head on with the already established high-end full-tower cases. Benchmark reviews will take a closer look at the Enthoo Primo (model PH-ES813P) to see whether or not Phan!

SilverStone Kublai KL04 Mid-Tower ATX Chassis @ benchmarkreviews.com
[Nov-14-13] (0 Comments)

The Kublai series of cases fits right in between the Precision and Temijin lines of enclosures by SilverStone. Losing some of the Temjin‚Äôs aluminum construction but retaining most of the innovative features of the more expensive line of towers, the KL04 is the fourth iteration of a chassis that began in 2007 and was notable for its storage capacity in a mid tower form factor. Looking to continue the tradition, the SilverStone Kublai KL04 uses a slightly different cooling arrangement and understated design to offer space for nine 3.5‚Ä≥ drives, along with four external 5.25‚Ä≥ bays and room for six 2.5‚Ä≥ drives. That‚Äôs a lot of storage in a mid tower ‚Äď can it keep everything cool? Benchmark Reviews is ready to find out!

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Video Card @ benchmarkreviews.com
[Nov-07-13] (0 Comments)

NVIDIA tends to dominate the field when it comes to graphics processing power, leaving AMD scrambling to remain competitive by reducing prices on their products to add value for an aging technology. Recently the AMD Radeon R9 290X was revealed as the brand’s flagship graphics card, virtually occupying future shelf space for around $599 and expected to compete against NVIDIA’s less-expensive GeForce GTX 780 that has been available since May (2013). Not one to allow competition into their high-end territory, NVIDIA pushes back with the introduction of GeForce GTX 780 Ti. Capable of producing the fastest and most efficient graphics power ever available, GeForce GTX 780 Ti offers 25% more processing cores than GTX 780 while leaving room to deliver record-level 336 GB/sec GDDR5 memory bandwidth so to leave no doubt who controls the top-end of discreet graphics.

To get the most out of the CrossFade M-100 Headphones you will be wise to also invest in a headphone amplifier. The sound output from today’s smartphones might be enough to crap out your average best buy $10 headphones, but it just isn’t enough to get a truly satisfactory experience on a higher quality set of headphones let alone the CrossFade M100′s. A lot of attention has quite rightly been given to sound quality and performance with equal attention also given to build quality and style. Don’t get me wrong, the experience is not disappointing by any means, I just need to point out that the dual-diaphragm 50mm drivers inside the CrossFade M-100 Headphones are so much more capable than you may think.

I’ve never been a big fan of headsets. Instead, I’ve always tried to use a speaker system whenever possible. After my fourth kid was born a few months ago, however, my home office was converted into a nursery. That meant that my trusty 5.1 surround speaker system that had traveled to Iraq and back with me, was now a set of paperweights. Since then, I’ve become somewhat of an audiophile, seeking the most comfortable headset that produces the highest quality sound for the best price. Recently, Benchmark Reviews received the CM Storm Pulse-R Aluminum Gaming Headset SGH-4330-KATA1 for testing. In this article, I will outline my experience with the CM Storm Pulse-R and show you where it fits in the gaming headset niche.

[Sep-16-13] (0 Comments)

The ASUS PCE-AC66 802.11ac wireless PCIe adapter is currently the only wireless adapter I know of, that allows you to experience the wonders of 3-Stream IEEE 802.11ac Wi-Fi. It won’t be the last, for sure, because the gains in wireless throughput are too good to pass up. There are several significant changes in the new 802.11ac standard, and upping the maximum allowable number of spatial streams is one of them. Theoretically, eight individual streams are supported by 802.11ac, but the new chips from Broadcom top out at three streams on a single IC. That’s enough to push 1.3Gbps across the airwaves on the 5GHz Wi-Fi band, which is probably where the consumer devices will stay. There are several wireless adapters on the market that are capable of handling two streams, but right now the PCE-AC66 is alone at the top of the 802.11ac heap, with three streams and the data rates to match.

Lian Li PC-Q28 Aluminum Mini-ITX Tower PC Case @ benchmarkreviews.com
[Sep-13-13] (0 Comments)

Since this is my first venture into building a system inside an M-ITX PC case I didn’t know exactly what to expect when I started out. I had certain expectations of the Lian Li PC-Q28; I knew it would take a full size ATX PSU (up to 17cm) and double slot video cards (up to 29cm long). The Lian Li PC-Q28 PC case, while small, has a large internal volume and will make for an excellent enthusiast M-ITX case with a few tweaks and mods. In this article Benchmark Reviews will hopefully provide answers to all of the questions you may have regarding the capabilities of the Lian-Li PC-Q28 Aluminum Mini-ITX Tower PC Case (model PC-Q28B), and more that you may have not considered.

As a company, they‚Äôve brought forward many innovations and unique, successful approaches to the ATX case standard with their AP series fans and rotated motherboard enclosures. It‚Äôs not that SilverStone is a stranger to CPU cooling ‚Äď there were the Nitrogen special-application series before the new Argon series, as well as the Heligon high-performance line of heat-sinks. The Argon AR01, AR02, and AR03 are all designed to be more accessible alternatives for enthusiasts, with each model fulfilling a specific purpose.

[Sep-02-13] (0 Comments)

Most people do not consider changing their computer monitor stand when it comes time to upgrading their system. This is understandable, as the device which supports your monitor is truly a behind the scenes system component. But depending on your setup, having the ability to pull your monitor closer to you, or float the display entirely off the desk is quite a useful feature. Wacom touchscreen owners have long realized the benefits of a flexible arm for precise ergonomic use of their touchscreen display. With the advent of Windows 8 and the trend towards touch enabled screens, having a flexible monitor arm suddenly becomes an important component in a desktop computer system.

When Intel sends out press samples of their new CPUs, they generally provide the top-end desktop products like the Core i7-4470K. And it’s fun to have the latest new super-fast processor to play with. But most people don’t need this level of power, and indeed in many cases even enthusiasts won’t make full use of the capabilities of a high-end part. Given that, might a less expensive, mid-range CPU be a better choice? Benchmark Reviews tests the mid-range Intel Core i5-4430 CPU, desktop processor model BX80646I54430, to find out.

Thermaltake Chaser A71 VP400M1W2N Computer Case @ benchmarkreviews.com
[Aug-21-13] (0 Comments)

As I am sure you are all well aware, the Thermaltake Chaser A71 is not the first chassis in the Chaser Series. Its direct predecessor, the A41, was a mid-tower addition to the Chaser Series that boasted some of the same features that are prevalent in the A71, such as great cooling, tool-less drive bays, and great cable management. And, it is not the first full-tower design in the Chaser Series. That distinction goes to the Chaser MK-1, which shares the same dimensions and has very similar features to the A71, including a top-mounted HDD hot-swap bay. Now, let’s move forward and take a closer look at the Thermaltake Chaser A71.

Have you ever felt that data stored on your external hard drives is unsafe due to the risk of dropping it, or getting it wet? Fear no more, ADATA has provided a solution in the form of their waterproof, shockproof HD710 portable HDD. Although it won’t protect your data if dropped from a rooftop or into a lake, you can rest assured that your data will be safe after minor drops and coffee spills. Following suit, ADATA has used an USB 3 interface to ensure speedy transfers with compatible machines. The HD710 is a little more expensive than other portable hard drives of the same storage capacity, it is therefore up to the consumer to decide whether or not the extra protection is worth the added cost.

Shooting Target Impact Signal System Bullet Hit Sensor @ benchmarkreviews.com
[Aug-16-13] (0 Comments)

In this article we field test the Target Impact Signal System III, model DK8-001-III, at ranges beyond 1500 yards. Firing a bullet out to extreme distances with precision accuracy has been the primary goal for sharpshooters since the rifle was first introduced. Modern military training produces lethal snipers skilled with deadly aim that can hit key targets located so far away the shot goes unheard. Long-range shooting requires sharp skills and a high degree of understand to be proficient, but it requires repetitive target practice to ever become effective. To become well practiced it’s necessary to know if a shot hits its target, at distances where sight and sound of bullet impact fail to register. This is where the Target Impact Signal System aids shooters by flashing a strobe signal back to the shooter whenever a bullet hits its mark.

Their second release featured backlit keys and macro keys but still had a mix of mechanical and rubber dome keys. Now we meet in the middle ‚Äď we have a full set of illuminated mechanical keys with per-key illumination, and there is a choice between red, blue and brown Cherry MX switches to boot.

While it’s not officially approved, it does appear to be stable, and there are products on the market already from all the serious players in wireless networking. While 802.11n was a step forward, and many of us have been appreciative of the additional legroom that the 5GHz band allows, there is still plenty of room for improvement in Wi-Fi performance. The ASUS RT-AC66U looks great sitting on the shelf, better than the majority of routers on offer today, but it’s the higher throughput and expanded signal coverage that’s going to win over most consumers.

With the summer period already opening its arms to welcome u s more and more people are looking to buy wireless Bluetooth headsets for u se while in the house, on the go or while working out. Now although Jabra r ecently released the quite remarkable REVO wireless Bluetooth headset the m arket is not really filled with such solutions, at least not powerful enoug h solutions for people who really want to listen to their tunes without vol ume restrictions. Granted the REVO is perhaps the best Bluetooth wireless h eadset out there but its rather high price tag makes it very hard for peopl e on a tight budget to look at it as a valid solution so we searched around to find a Bluetooth wireless headset that shares most of the features foun d in the REVO but at half its price tag, if not less.

In this HD world we live in, having the latest and greatest display in which to fully enjoy this media has become the norm. With every release of a new device, it seems the display is the biggest improvement, with hig her resolutions and more pixels per inch being the specs that consumers cli ng to when deciding one versus another. With such an emphasis on visuals, w e cant afford to overlook the need for high quality speakers to fully enjoy the experience. There are numerous choices out there, and most are X.1 set ups. This is generally some number (i.e. X) of satellite speakers and a sub woofer (aka .1). The traditional 2.0 (no separate subwoofer) market has his torically been saturated with cheap speakersunfortunately that hasnt change d much with the emphasis on X.1 setups. So can a 2.0 speaker system cut it in todays market where so much emphasis is being placed on getting the most out of the HD media and high quality audio that is so readily available th ese days? Palo Alto seems to think so, and with their Cubik speakers they a re here to try and dispel multiple myths. Essentially, bigger isnt always b etter, and more speakers does not mean better sound.

A year or so ago Mad Catz released the Cyborg R.A.T. series mice. These mice were the craziest looking computer peripheral that I=E2=80=99v e ever looked at till this point. What made the R.A.T. series great was th e facts that not only were they unique and cool to look at they were solid performers. Bob reviewed the M.M.O. 7 Mouse a while back and gave it grea t remarks. The Mad Catz Cyborg S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 Gaming Keyboard (S7) takes t he unique level of the R.A.T. series mouse and puts it to shame, the big q uestion is can it hold up to the level that the R.A.T. performed at?

Silicon Power Marvel M60 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive @ nikktech.com
[Oct-06-12] (0 Comments)

   With prices of SSD drives taking a serious dive in the past 6 months (so did the quality of some) USB flash drives are not doing much better and so pretty much everyone can now carry at least 32GB of data without worrying a bout the cost. However capacity is not the only single thing that defines a USB Flash Drive and so leaving out consumers who care more about the desig n and size of one such device there are also those who care mostly about pe rformance. Now performance (or speed) is perhaps the hardest thing to come by since most manufacturers nowadays pay more attention to size and design in an effort to keep cost to a minimum. So today our main goal is to find o ut whether or not the latest Marvel M60 USB 3.0 Flash Drive by Silicon Powe r is just all about looks like most similar devices in the market.=0A =0A  =0AArticle Link:   http://www.nikktech.com/main/articles/peripherals/846-silico n-power-marvel-m60-32gb-usb-3-0-flash-drive=0A&n bsp;=0AImage Link:  http://www.nikktech.com/main/images/p ics/reviews/silicon_power/m60_32gb/marvel_m60a.jpg=0A =0AA News Post Would Be Appreciated.Thanks In Advance.=0A SincerelyNik Kastrantas=0AR emember To Send Us Your News At:news@nikkte ch.comContact Me Personally At:nikk@nikktech.com(If you are sending us your news and they are not published please check with me)=0ASince this is an entirely new project this email database maybe off so if you do not wish to receive our updates or i f you receive them twice due to our error please let us know so we can fix it.

Of course as always the key players/manufacturers in the industry keep introducing new features so they can make their products more appealing to consumers but we always need to remember that one of their main goals is always to reduce the cost of their products (to increase profit) and so one can never really compare one of t hese low cost internal hardware media players with a retail model like the XIOS DS Media Play! by Pivos which we have here with us today since the dif ferences in specs are quite honestly somewhat vast.=0A =0A  =0AArticl e Link:   http://www.nikktech.com/main/articles/media-players/741-pivos-xios-ds-media -play-network-media-player=0A   =0AImage Link:  http://www.nikktech.com/main/images/pics/reviews/pivos/xios_ds/xi os_dsa.jpg=0A =0AA News Post Would Be A ppreciated.Thanks In Advance.=0ASincerelyNik Ka strantas=0ARemember To Send Us Your News At:news@nikktech.comContact Me Personally At:nikk@nikktech.c om(If you are sending us your news and they are not published p lease check with me)=0AThank you all for your support.=0A

If you are white and you live in North America, chances are that you are not a part of the visible minority. That is, unless you are studying engineering here at the University of Calgary, or you are a computer power supply. While the Faculty of Engineering is dominated by Asians and most PSUs are black, a little over a year ago, NZXT decided to be brave and decided to be different -- they made a white power supply unit. The 80 Plus Gold certified NZXT HALE90 is certainly nothing short of impressive. It combines excellent performance, impeccable reliability, near silent operation, and top notch efficiency along with a sleek, unique appearance. So if the NZXT HALE90 is so distinguished from the competition, why did they resort to conformity and make the HALE82? As its name suggests, not only is it no longer over ninety percent efficient, it has also the same appearance as every other PSU. Hmm. So is distinguished excellence out, and blending in with the crowd back? Or is there more to the story? Read on to find out!

RAID, the final frontier. These are the voyages of...ah, who am I k idding? Choosing to implement RAID today isnt embarking on a mission to bol dly go where no one has gone before. This technology has literally been aro und for years, and today RAID support can be found within most operating sy stems, integrated on motherboards, or easily added to any system as a 3rd p arty controller for almost nothing (quick search on Amazon yields controlle rs for less than $30). With its wide availability, you may find yourself at some point contemplating taking the plunge and configuring a RAID setup on your own system. However, before doing so, there are some things you shoul d consider.

For those users that want their cake and eat it too, how do we leve rage the speed of SSD drives with the raw storage capacity of traditional s pinning drives? The answer, SSD caching. Originally only available on highe r end enterprise class storage, such as Adaptecs maxCache or LSIs CacheCade , this technology is beginning to show up in the consumer market. Essential ly this allows a user to configure one (or more) SSD drives to be used for read or write cache for frequently accessed data residing on slower spinnin g HDD media. This frequently accessed data sitting on spinning HDD media wi ll be served by the faster SSD drives, and the end result is SSD like perfo rmance with the raw capacity of traditional HDD media.

Switching over to the keyboard we are about to be looking at should really be like changing the color of my T-shirt. By this I mean the feel of the keys, the layout and the keyboards functionality are all something I am fully aware of and used to using. This is not to say they are exactly the same, as there are distinct differences between this new sample and the G110 I have been wearing out over the past year with all of these reviews. With most samples there is a bit of a learning curve to get used to the product, or learn the nuances of the software, but since I have used Logitech products of all sorts over the years, the software side is nothing new to me either.Today we are going to be looking at the G105:Made for Call of Duty gaming keyboard. This means that you of course are getting all the basic functionality that the G105 offers as well as having a few cool additions. With my G110 the LED coloration is limited to red, blue and various shades of purple to illuminate the keys. With the COD MW3 version, everything is glowing green to resemble night vision technology, helping to immerse you into the gameplay. There are also two sets of grey keys to help guide your fingers in the dark to the WASD and arrow keys.

* The Fractal Design Array R2 chassis instantly recalled forus the decidedly niche, but incredibly functional, cube-style cases populara few years ago. which were incredibly niche but very functional. The R2was flexible, silent and sleek in a very limited amount of space. The LianLi PC-Q25 chassis shares many of the same appealing traits, but goes for ataller design in a similar footprint. This allows it some interestingarrangements inside and allows for even more internal storage options. As asmall form factor case there are always trade-offs to be made, and theomission of an optical drive space is just one of them. With some veryattractive features in a small form factor cube-like chassis, the Lian LiPC-Q25 has a lot to offer a variety of consumers, which we will examinecloser.*ARTICLE URL:* http://www.missingremote.com/review/lian-li-pc-q25-chassis

The build quality and ability to overclock for all of thesecards is above average. The cooling ability combined with low noiseoperation is another big advantage for all of these cards. Asusoffers a very good warranty, and the included bundles are decent(though not necessarily outstanding). The prices for these cards isabove that of reference boards, but I do believe the unique designsand better cooling performance set these well apart from referencecards. They are certainly worth the extra price.

The ENGTX580 is in a bit of a bind. When viewed by itself oragainst other GTX 580 cards, it really proves its worth once coolingand overclocking abilities are considered. It is on the same level asthe MSI N580GTX Lightning, but it is a slightly larger card in that ittakes up three slots as compared to two. It does not match the MSIN580GTX XE, which is a 3GB card, but it is also significantly cheaper(and actually available) as compared to that other high end card.Where it stumbles is when being compared against the brand new AMD HD7970.

AMD Leo DirectX 11 Demo Released @ ngohq.com
[Feb-01-12] (0 Comments)

The Leo demo showcases a real-time DirectX 11 based lighting pipeline that is designed to allow for rendering scenes made of arbitrarily complex materials (including transparencies), multiple lighting models, and minimal restrictions on the number of lights that can be used - all while supporting hardware MSAA and efficient memory usage. Specifically, this demo uses DirectCompute to cull and manage lights in a scene. The end result is a per-pixel or per-tile list of lights that forward-render based shaders use for lighting each pixel. This technique also allows for adding one bounce global illumination effects by spawning virtual point light sources where light strikes a surface.

There were some advancements in the product versus itspredecessor, PowerDVD 11 - most notably automatic refresh rate switching,but the best part was that they gave me a copy to bring back and test on avariety of systems to provide a preview of what PowerDVD 12 has to offer.As much as I would have liked to publish this earlier, they asked that wenot until today. This turned out to be a good thing though, because therewas time to create a few videos and take a much more thorough look at theproduct than would have been possible otherwise; just keep in mind that thecopy that was tested was not the final revision so some of the issues maynot be present in the real release and I was not able to get the APK fortheir DLNA application for my Kindle Fire so that aspect will only becovered briefly.*ARTICLE URL:* http://www.missingremote.com/review/cyberlink-powerdvd-12

[Affiliates News] NZXT Source 220 Computer Case @ aphnetworks.com
[Jan-30-12] (0 Comments)

I am always amazed at how the political and economic system works in the United States. While I am not suggesting Canada is leaps and bounds better, it is interesting how the United States government would even consider the SOPA and PIPA bills. On the technology side, blackouts were the main method of protesting, and in the end, it proved to be highly influential. Not only did it draw tons of support, but most importantly, it made many people aware of the issues and reduce the likelihood of similar future incidents from happening. With that in mind, probably completely unintentional, the NZXT Source 220 is like the blacked out version of the NZXT Source 210 Elite. Having a completely black theme without the option for a white variation, I guess the value budget consumer will have to lose out on customization. By having no other options, you might get the feeling of being forced to accept the chassis as it is; however, I am pretty certain that there will be significantly less controversy over the Source 220 than the previously mentioned bills. Today, I am not here to talk about either the SOPA or PIPA bills. Instead, we have ourselves a revision of the NZXT Source 210 Elite to discuss. Now of course, just like I would hope with any revisions to SOPA or PIPA, there should be some significant improvements over the previous version. One last note, I do not support SOPA or PIPA, and I am very thankful for the turn of events related to those bills.

Noctua NF-F12 120mm PWM Fan @ viperlair.com
[Dec-15-11] (0 Comments)

All in all, there is plenty on offer from the Noctua NF-F12 120mm P WM Fan and frankly their needs to be. At around £17 UK or $25 US it is a comparatively expensive item. Value is going to be subjective here though. The Noctua NF-F12 120mm PWM Fan is very quiet in operation, even at full sp eed and what little noise it does make is a slightly deeper tone than most other fans. Despite running at a low noise, it can still push a fair amount of air through restrictive items. You can further decrease the 1500 RPM to 1200 RPM via the included L.N.A. (Low Noise Adapter) and still maintain si milar performance. Also, Noctua have seen fit to give the NF-F12 120mm Fan a short 4 wire PWM power cable for CPU cooler use as well as a much larger sleeved extension cable. You also get regular fan screws and rubber bolts t o mount the Noctua NF-F12 120mm PWM Fan with.

The Five Stages of Griefing:Death of the Consoles @ pcper.com
[Dec-06-11] (0 Comments)

Whether you desire to play on your couch, you prefer acontroller, or you want support:the console is nothing special. Iargue that service from a reputable local small business computerstore will exceed service provided by the console vendors all withoutimpeding your ability to support yourself; still, failing a decentstore nearby, there will be plenty of larger companies such as Dell,MSI, and ASUS who will be on par at the least with the service theconsole vendors could provide. The console will certainly not provideany better experience if the PC flourishes.

[Dec-01-11] (0 Comments)

While the basic concept and design of this cooler is based heavily on the already famous D-14, there are no ties between it and what we are about to look at from Phanteks. Phanteks actually looked beyond the limits that Noctua set with the D-14 and into every possible way to improve on the basic concept.Today we are going to get up close and personal with one of the four PH-TC14PE coolers being sold. More specifically, we are going to test the PH-TC14PE_BL, or an electric blue colored version. Let me set the stage a bit here. Not only did I get the PH-TC14PE and its pair of included fans, Phanteks also sent along a third fan that matches the two supplied in the box, but in its own retail packaging. So right when you thought the D-14 made a motherboard disappear, just wait until you see the PH-TC14PE with three fans installed on my GIGABYTE later in the review!

Most of the time, especially in gamesthat we know are super GPU dependent like Battlefield 3, the 448-corevariant was reliably about 3-5% slower than the 480-core part.

Thortech Thunderbolt 1000W Modular Power Supply Unit @ eteknix.com
[Nov-09-11] (0 Comments)

Thortech is a brand that I’m sure no one has heard of beforeand for good reason. Until recently, the Thortech team has been partof GeIL and has handled the R&D for their PSUs for over 15 years,however it is only recently that GeIL has taken the decision to launcha new series of PSUs under the subsidiary of Thortech. I am expectingthis change in branding is a PR move that signifies a higher level ofperformance than what GeIL power supplies were offering. Being as thisis a brand new series of power supply being launched under a newbrand, we’re not quite sure what to expect from Thortech!

This makes a product very much futureproof and is quite frankly a brilliant idea. It also means you can useit with multiple computers using multiple interfaces, and not have toseparate drives for each computer.

* When selecting the perfect chassis for your home theater PC(HTPC) it can be difficult to strike the right balance between looks andcapability. With multiple tuners increasingly becoming available in smallerand varied packages at more competitive prices, the form factor revolutionin the client HTPC space made possible by no-compromise integrated processorgraphics (IPG) systems is now a tangible reality for the primary HTPC aswell. Wesena has aggressively pushed into this space with chassis like theMicro-ATX/Mini-ITX compatible all-aluminum E5, which with its CE visageoffers a near perfect look for the A/V stack. There is some compromisebecause of the ultra-low-profile form factor but with two hard drive mounts,space for a slim optical drive and enough expansion to provide a viableenclosure for your main HTPC, it warrants a detailed look.*ARTICLE URL*:http://www.missingremote.com/review/wesena-e5-ultra-low-profile-htpc-chassis

All-in-one water coolers have been worthy of some pretty big debates.

While these units are easy to install, easier to clean than an air cooler and do look really clean in any build, up to date, performance or noise levels at that performance were just not justified for the cost.

Speculation about latency between render and gameloops aside the implementation looks quite sound and allows users withon-processor graphics to not need to waste precious cycles (especiallyon GPUs that you would see on-processor) with antialiasing and insteaduse it more on raising other settings including resolution itselfwhile still avoiding jaggies.

However, that in itself is not quite strictly true as without a CPU cooler your processor will overheat within seconds but without a case fan you will struggle to remove any heat removed from the CPU and of course then no more heat can be removed. More simply put, it is essential to have good airflow through the case to remove the heat build-up else your CPU cooler wonít be able to operate.

Recently there have been lots of similar looking gaming style headsets released which quite frankly have all been the same. The headsets are either stereo headsets, or headsets pretending to offer 5.1 or even 7.1 surround sound. While all the companies producing these surround sound headsets will claim that they give you the full surround sound feel, it is at best, virtual and produced digitally. When you stop and think about it, does it seem possible for 5.1 surround sound to be played through 2 speakers? While it may not be truly possible they certainly give it a good go.

If we were 2-3 years in the future, when many moreapplications were written to fully utilize the capabilities of SIMDarrays like the one found on the Llano APU, the A8-3850 would be aneasy recommendation over the Core i3-2100. We are sorry to reportthough that it is still 2011 and the number of GPU-acceleratedapplications is still limited though not due to the push of NVIDIA andAMD. With the exceptions of some video processing apps and gaming,the GPU in the Llano will be under-utilized I fear and even in some ofthe areas AMD claims victories in (video playback, transcoding, etc),Intel is doing nearly as well or

Intel is still more CPU-centric, but we are starting to seethem taking a larger interest in this technology. The cancelledLarabee project may have been misguided in terms of addressing thegaming and graphics market, but the parallel computing ramificationsof this part and its extreme programmability hint at things to come.

While away, I saw one of the greatest finishes ever at the Indy 500 unfold right in front of me and my wife and I welcomed a new addition in our hearts. Even with all of these events going on around me, the Agility 3 was on the back of my mind.On the surface the OCZ Agility 3 looks like a great bargain, just like the Agility 2. You get a SandForce SF-2281 controller, the same used in the award winning Vertex 3 and the same great 3 year warranty. When the Vertex 2 and Agility 2 were launched over a year ago, the differences were in the programming and the Agility 2 was great value given that you got the same level of performance once the high IOPS burst of the Vertex 2 passed.

HIS Radeon HD 6870 IceQ X Turbo X Graphics Card @ eteknix.com
[May-25-11] (0 Comments)

This past 12 months has seen a lot of new products for AMD in terms of processors, the Fusion platform and of course graphics cards. The HD 6870 has been a top seller for them since its initial launch and have kept a steady growth of sales even with higher end competitor cards being released. As with most graphics cards that are released, a reference design of sorts is used to show the performance and a custom design card follows on later down the line. The HD 6870 saw a massive boost in sales when custom coolers were strapped to the cards and with HIS branding their IceQ X fan and heatsink, it proves our point to the letter.

It has a good overclock rightout of the box, and the Twin Frozr III cooler is a marvel. Eventhough it does not exhaust the air outside of the case, it was soeffective in cooling the chip that it barely raised the casetemperature in the first place.

This makes it a good base for the HIS 6790 IceQ X Turbo Graphics Ca rd which expands on this with uprated Core and Memory clocks. A default car d comes clocked at 840/1050 while the HIS 6790 IceQ X Turbo Graphics Card c omes out-of-the-box at 900/1100. We also managed to squeeze a little extra from the Core and took our sample to 920. Not a particularly large increase , but the memory jumped all the way to 1200MHz without issue. In games, the HIS 6790 IceQ X Turbo Graphics Card does very nicely, and would suit a sin gle 1080p monitor well. Despite this, the HIS 6790 IceQ X Turbo Graphics Ca rd does have all the ports and features needed for some Eyefinity action, a lthough I would expect to see a need to run at reduced detail settings for the higher resolution.

Are you catching on now? Will it be better if I got a bit more specific? Razer -- a well known company in the computer market for developing peripherals geared towards gamers. Noctua -- an well recognized company renowned for their superb quietness in quality computing components. Thermaltake -- what exactly do we know about Thermaltake? Well, from what we have seen so far on APH Networks, we know that they produce pretty decent keyboards and mice by their sub-brand, Tt eSPORTS. We also know Thermaltake cases are decently priced for the features and quality it gives. If you are new around here, what I am really talking about is the Thermaltake Armor A60 reviewed by yours truly, and the Thermaltake Armor A90 reviewed by my colleague Jonathan quite some time back. However, what we have here today is much different than these two chassis that I have just mentioned. Although it may be the smallest of the three, it is actually priced at approximately $30 USD more at press time.

AMD Phenom II X4 980 Black Edition :Last of the Breed @ pcper.com
[May-03-11] (0 Comments)

In the end, this is a simple 100 MHz increase in clockspeedfor AMD for their high end quad core processor. It is not all thatmuch faster than the previous X4 975, but at least it does not consumeall that much more power than the previous model. It is a goodall-around performer, and would make a solid foundation for aproductivity and gaming machine for most users. Invariably though,most eyes are drawn to the horizon and the promise of Llano andBulldozer. Hopefully for AMD these next generation processors willallow them to more adequately compete with Intel when it comes to rawperformance.

[Affiliates News] SteelSeries QcK mass Mousing Surface @ aphnetworks.com
[Apr-28-11] (0 Comments)

As a gamer, I am very concerned about comfort. The first thing that comes to mind when I think of comfort, is of course, the peripherals. From the mouse to the keyboard, these things are quite important to even the best of us. From those gamers who prefer the old school Microsoft IntelliMouse, to more modern gaming devices such as the Razer Naga or Logitech G500, there is an element of comfort we have grown to appreciate. This is especially true for enthusiasts in this department. However, one thing that is often overlooked by some is the gaming surface. Be it a desk surface, a cloth mousepad, a glass mousepad, or even a metal mousepad, familiar and comfortable surfaces usually lead to better performance -- or at least increased comfort in gaming. Some people might even say it increases productivity in office work. Either way, the mousepad can be a very significant part of any computing experience. From all of this, it is quite easy to guess we will be taking a look at a gaming surface today. The product we will be taking a look at is sent to us from a well known gaming company -- SteelSeries -- who is renowned for their mousepads, headphones, keyboards, and mice.

Headphones have been around for a long time and for most of this time were nothing special. As things advanced communications via the computer became more common and as such people needed microphones. Soon afterwards we saw headsets which perform better than using speakers and a boom microphone sat on the desk Ė for hopefully obvious reasons. With a decent headset your friend on Skype will be able to hear every word however loud the music that you are playing into the headset is.

Theydefinitely improve on the already solid performance and feature set ofthe Radeon HD 5600-series of cards and do so at the same launch-timeprice points. The problem that both of these cards have (and thatmany graphics releases are seeing recently) is the price merges thatoccur when higher performance, older GPUs go on sale or offer rebatesto take a step down in market.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 550 Ti OC Graphics Card @ eteknix.com
[Apr-13-11] (0 Comments)

It is a fact that most of us PC hardware enthusiasts are so concerned with what is happening at the high end of the graphics card market, that lower end cards like the GTX550 get forgotten among the more outrageously powerful, and sometimes outrageously expensive, cards out there. However, the lower end cards are what sell the best to the mainstream users who want to game without spending £200 on a top end card, but are clever enough not to opt for a console! More importantly though, the lower power found in these cards give manufacturers such as GIGABYTE the ability to do some amazing things with them, such as silent cooling and high overclocks. This is exactly what a buyer is looking for and appears to be exactly what GIGABYTE is offering- we will see how it does this later on.

When the drive is powered a tiny white LED glows to show that the system is actually powered on.

Swiftech Polaris 120 High Performance CPU Cooler @ tweaktown.com
[Mar-28-11] (0 Comments)

It looks like a few things have changed over at Swiftech since the last time I visited their site and had the pleasure of testing, and still using to this day, the H20-320 kit they introduced back in November of last year. A couple of weeks ago I started getting correspondence of this new cooler in the works from Swiftech, and to my first surprise, it‚Äôs an air cooler. Now I‚Äôm not positive you all remember the MCX series of air coolers from a few years ago. While the idea was very different, and the thinking was outside of the box in its design, the cooler had limited success, and I don‚Äôt remember it being highly recommended as were the other leaders in that day of air cooling.Then came the second surprise! When I saw the cooler design I got a big grin on my face. There are quite a few tricks implemented in this design that I have seen make successful coolers before. To be honest, as I look at this cooler I am reminded of the Thermolab BARAM for the compact nature of the fin arrangement. Then again, I am reminded of coolers like the XtremeGear HP-1216 or SilenX variation of the same design. To say this new cooler ‚Äúcopies‚ÄĚ any of those is a bit of a stretch, but I can see the influence of many coolers of days gone by in this design, but that wasn‚Äôt good enough for Swiftech.

Sandy Bridge Mobile Performance @ pcper.com
[Mar-28-11] (0 Comments)

Sandy Bridge was great for desktops, but it may well be evenbetter for laptops. The levels of performance provided by this newquad-core processor are staggering. We may even be reaching a pointwhere a laptop is truly is able to provide performance competitivewith similarly priced desktops. Crazy, I know =96 but modern laptopsbased on mobile Sandy Bridge will be no joke.

Dragon Age II Xbox 360 @ tweaktown.com
[Mar-27-11] (0 Comments)

To say that Dragon Age II has had an interesting development cycle would be the same as saying the sky is blue. Ever since the original game, it seemed like BioWare wanted to try something new with Dragon Age to reach a wider audience with it, and as such they have made major changes to what you saw in the original game. However, in many ways these changes make the game better. Dragon Age II feels a lot more structured and streamlined for the console and on this review platform (the Xbox 360) that is a welcome thing, but PC fans do have some reason to be angry as well.Dragon Age II takes place as expected after the Dragon Age Origins Expansion pack. You once again you play as the hero who removed the dark spawn, but instead of being able to customise your characters name, you are appointed Champion Hawke in either a female or male format depending on your preference. What this has allowed BioWare to do is have a more streamlined story, but in many ways they have not taken advantage of the changes as well as they could have.

[Mar-24-11] (0 Comments)

Personally I like the card. I was disappointed I could notmod it successfully to a HD 6970, but even in stock form the card isnot slow. I am doing some =93long term=94 testing on this particularmodel in my main machine, clocked at a much more mundane 900 MHz coreand 1350 MHz memory. This has provided a nice performance boost, allthe while producing less sound than the more aggressive overclock Idid while testing. So far the card has worked flawlessly at thisspeed, and it has handled every application I have thrown at it withaplomb.

Trendnet TPL-401E2K Powerline AV Kit @ rbmods.com
[Feb-21-11] (0 Comments)

Powerline ethernet adapters are theoretically the perfect approach to retrofitting an existing building with wired ethernet. The premise of being able to simply plug two adapters in to the existing power outlets and instantly have a wired network covering several hundred feet has a great appeal. The Trendnet TPL-401E2K Powerline AV Adapter Kit is a product that looks to provide this functionality and at the same time promises speeds of up to 500Mbps. We take a quick look after the break.

AMD Responds to the Sandy Bridge Bug:Marketing ramps up... but new @ pcper.com
[Feb-19-11] (0 Comments)

The biggest potential win for AMD would have been a successfulAM3+ motherboard launch, but they still were not able to move up thatparticular product. If AMD had been able to come out swinging withthis new socket, and new motherboards designed around it, we couldvery well have seen a much more significant boost to AMD. While thereare no Bulldozer nor Llano based chips available, AM3+ boards dosupport current AM3 processors. Releasing the high end 990FX andbudget 970 boards, neither of which utilize the integrated graphics ofLlano, and populating them with current Phenom II and Athlon II CPUscould have provided a nice impetus to AMD and given the company amarketplace more prepared for the new CPUs to arrive later thisSpring.

OCZ is the first to get next generation SandForce out thedoor. While this was an engineering sample with a few kinks to workout, it is clearly a very capable performer and is bound to make earlyadopters and power users drool with anticipation. Bulk file throughputexceeding half a Gigabyte per second is astonishing. What waspreviously only possible with an SSD RAID or PCIe SSD is now possiblewith a single 2.5

When NVidia released the 470 back last March, the reference cards were known to have some thermal issues and keeping cool due to the 3 billion transistors that had been embedded onto the GF100 GPUís. This is where KFA2 have stepped upto the challenge to not only overcome the cooling but to also cool a card that they will supply overclocked as standard. This challenge is right up their street.

In the past we have looked at a mini-ITX motherboard branded in the shape of the Jetway NC63-330-LF using an Intel Atom N330 Dual-Core 1.6GHz processor but as times change, so does the technology and the features used. This is where we introduce the Jetway NF96FL-510-LF with its improved processor (which is loosely based on the Atom 330), different chipset and improved features.

Mitsuba DC500T 5MP Digital Camera @ monster-hardware.com
[Feb-14-11] (0 Comments)

Mitsuba has chosen to label this camera as being 12MP on several places on the box. While the true optical resolution of the DC500T is only 5MP, the 12MP figure is obtained through interpolation. Since the Mitsuba does this interpolation in the camera I suppose the 12MP figure is technically correct, but its use here is obviously meant to mislead the user into thinking they are getting a much higher end camera.
