SteelSeries Shift Keyboard: Medal Of Honour Gaming Edition Review @ Tech-Reviews.co.uk

Posted by Nathan @ 7:54 PM (EDT)

The ability to remove the entire keyset of a keyboard is something SteelSeries have played around with in the past and it seems to have stuck: the Shift is equipped with a similarly engineered removable keyset to the ZBoard. With specialist key sets available for specific games to slot in to the Shift base, this gaming keyboard appears to offer something extra besides retaining many of the keyboard gizmos we’ve come to expect as standard: macro programmable keys, a USB hub and specialist software to name a few. Let’s see if the aptly named Keyboard chameleon can deliver.

HornetTek Slipper U3 External Dock @ Bjorn3D

Posted by Nathan @ 7:53 PM (EDT)

The Slipper is a unique design for an external enclosure/dock, so we will be testing it to make sure everything works as anticipated. The Slipper name was clearly given to this dock because of the fact that it looks like a slipper; this design also makes it surprisingly easy to slide a hard drive into place. The fact that the dock supports hot swapping also makes it quite easy to change out hard drives even when the device is connected.

ASUS MARS II Review: GeForce GTX 580 SLI On One PCB @ HotHardware.Com

Posted by Nathan @ 7:50 PM (EDT)

Asus has never been a company to shy away from offering over-the-top, custom products that command a price premium. Perhaps it’s because the company is large enough, and thus, has the resources to cater to virtually all market segments, big or small. Or perhaps the top brass at Asus just likes inducing slack-jawed stares from PC enthusiasts. Whatever the reason, we hope they keep it up because testing this kind of stuff and showing it to you all is freakin’ fun.

AMD A8-3850 APU Overclocking w/ 7 Processors @ Legit Reviews

Posted by Nathan @ 6:17 PM (EDT)

When AMD released the 'Lynx' desktop platform back in June 2011, our motherboard reviewer ran into some bad luck when overclocking the processor. When you get a new platform setup for the very first time you really don't know what to expect and it does take some time to learn all the quirks and nuances of a new processor and motherboard. We recently ordered in six more processors and then overclocked all seven of them to see what the best one would be for our test system!

Silent Watercooling - Component Guide & Radiator Shoot Out @ Vortez

Posted by Nathan @ 9:02 PM (EDT)

As the heat can be transferred away from the source (in the coolant), you can massively increase the surface area with which you transfer the heat to the air. Instead of being limited to a cooler that can only hold one or two 120mm fans, you can use a radiator that holds pretty much as many as you desire, and even then you can use more than one radiator. This massive increase in heat transferring surface area allows you to dramatically reduce the speed of the fans used, or even remove them entirely – reducing the noise of the system enormously.

Corsair Carbide Series 400R Case Review @ Legit Reviews

Posted by Nathan @ 9:01 PM (EDT)

Corsair simply nailed it with the Carbide Series 400R mid-tower case. The first thing I noticed taking this steel case out of the box was it is fairly light at under 16 pounds! It was very sturdy and I didn't feel like I was going to be breaking plastic parts while reviewing the case. The elegant sleek design may escape you are first look but it is certainly there. It may take the first time for you to see the PC turned on to see how well it works with the white LED lights provided on the front panels and front case fans. Sure it only comes with three fan to start but if you are feeling creative you can have up to ten to create a wind tunnel in your Corsair Carbide Series 400R.

G.Skill RipjawsX PC3-14900 Cas 9 Review @ OCC

Posted by Nathan @ 9:01 PM (EDT)

My goal was to increase the memory frequency as much as I could while keeping the latency timings low. In my efforts, I was able to push this set to 2000MHz before receiving errors in Memtest86+ and losing stability. I did attempt to loosen the timings to 10-10-10-28 and push higher than 2000MHz, but it resulted in dropped performance. Thus, the overclocked tests were run with these modules at 2000MHz with stock latency timings.

Some people believe that the X58 chipset is dead and buried. While it is clear that many enthusiasts are heading towards Z68 and P67 based motherboards, like some mass exodus, there are those who still believe that X58 still has a lot to offer. GIGABYTE have been at the forefront with regard to X58 motherboards releasing some excellent examples such as the magnificent GA-X58 UD3R and UD5 along with the ultra-gaming platform catering for multi GPUs, the UD9. They have continued this excellent repertoire more recently with some stunning quality motherboards of late, namely the G1 Guerrilla Sniper and Assassin boards. The motherboard we have for review today however is something even more special, even more niche, which has one unique selling point and one group in mind...overclockers.

Various DDR3 memory kits are often marketed for setting some kind of MHz record. Even video cards carry the overclock (OC) moniker, yet most users don’t really do that with them.
