  • The SSD Review

    "A few months ago we reviewed the the little brother to the Samsung 850 Pro, the Samsung 850 EVO in its SATA III 2.5" form factor. Now its time for the spotlight to shift to a new form factor, M.2. Just as with the 2.5" model, this M.2 variant utilizes their new 32-layer TLC 3D V-NAND technology as well as their latest MGX dual-core SATA controller. This combination paired with TurboWrite technology enables this SSD to achieve some awesome speeds. Furthermore, the M.2 models do not show performance degradation comparatively to the other form factors of the Samsung 850 EVO, which is great considering the amount of NAND used on this form factor."

The brand new mSATA and M.2 Samsung SSD 850 EVO drives being announced today, however, leverage all of the same technology. The last few generations of Samsung’s 2.5” Solid State Drive utilized PCBs that barley filled up half of their encloses, and a large portion of those PCBs were dedicated to the standard SATA power and data cable connectors, so it’s no shock to see these new, smaller variants arrive with mSATA and M.2 support. We’ve got a couple of drives in hand, a 500GB M.2 Samsung SSD 850 EVO and a 1TB mSATA slickster that would be right at home in a notebook or HTPC..."

    "With quite a large number of first and third person shooters coming out in 2015 (noticeably Grand Theft Auto VI and Mad Max) and even some real time strategy titles) it's only natural for gamers around the world to start getting ready for them by getting new gaming peripherals such as keyboards, mice and headsets. Of course when it comes to gaming i think that there's nothing more important for gamers other than to own a good gaming mouse not only because that's what you'll be using all the time but also because it's perhaps the only peripheral that can improve your reaction times (important for online games mostly). Logitech has been around for well over 3 decades and in that time they released some good gaming mice which I’m sure many of you still own. However it wasn't until just recently that they began focusing a lot more in the design and manufacture of gaming mice (probably because of their relatively new Logitech Gaming brand) and today we'll be taking a look at their latest G402 Hyperion Fury model."

    "AIO Liquid CPU Coolers may be in the spotlight lately due to the fact that many manufacturers have released several new models but judging by your emails and FB messages it seems that normal CPU Air Coolers are not going anywhere anytime soon. Sure the high-end models are larger which may result in clearance issues with other components and no one can deny that in some cases they are harder to mount compared to AIO Liquid CPU Coolers but at least in terms of performance many CPU Air Coolers still hold their ground while being more affordable and for many consumers out there that's what really matters. The Ashura CPU Cooler by Scythe has been in the market for quite a while and since we recently started working with them again we decided to take it for a spin and see if it too can hold its ground."

    "As more enthusiasts realize that they don’t need the expansion capabilities of standard ATX motherboards, mATX and mini-ITX systems are exploding in popularity, and we’re seeing some real innovation in small systems case design. Today we have Phanteks’ latest, the Enthoo Evolv ITX case. This case has excellent air flow, a very versatile design, and is perfect for those who want to water-cool their systems: it can accommodate a 240mm radiator and even comes with a bracket for a separate water pump if you want to roll your own. Long graphics cards are no problem, either, and integrated cable management features make a clean build easy. Of course the real proof is building a system in this case, and that’s exactly what Benchmark Reviews will do."

    "A few days ago NVIDIA released the fastest single GPU graphics card in the market called the TITAN X a real beast featuring a massive 12GB's of onboard VRAM memory, 3072 CUDA cores, 192 TMUs, 96 ROPs, 384-bit wide memory interface and a TDP of 250W. Luckily although a few years back such performance would be far more power hungry today even 4 of these beasts would require a total output of roughly 1000W. Of course although these power requirements are indeed very low for such cards we need not forget the rest of the system components so adding those as well means that you'd certainly need around 1500W to be on the safe side. Unfortunately the market is not really filled with 1500W (1.5KW) power supply units but if you can afford to get 4 ultra-high end graphics cards then you shouldn't have a problem finding a suitable one and the Strider Gold model by SilverStone which we have here with us today could be the right one for the job."

  • Benchmark Reviews

    "If you have ever bought a SilverStone case, you would probably agree that the price can be easily justified by the over-the-top build quality and the unique designs that can only be obtained by buying one of the many cases that SilverStone has available. It has been over a year since SilverStone last released a member of the Kublai series, and when they mentioned to Benchmark Reviews that they were updating this line with the Kublai KL05B-W, we immediately asked for a sample."

  • "OCZ Technology is at the ready with yet another new solid state drive, built around the company's tried-and-true Barefoot 3 controller. The Vector 180 series drive that's launching today is packing some of Toshiba's latest 19nm MLC NAND flash memory and has some welcomed features and additions normally reserved for more expensive, enterprise-class drives. And the Vector 180 isn't the only thing OCZ has in store. Launching alongside this new SSD is a brand new utility, dubbed "OCZ Guru," geared for easy management and tuning of OCZ's enthusiast-class drives."

    "Who like to assemble a new PC or want to replace the old hard drive with a fast SSD, needs to select the proper size. If you do not know, if 250 GB or 500 GB is really enough capacity, you should read this review of the brand-new MX200 with 1 TB. Because after the previous test of the MX200 with 500 GB we want to test the 1 Terabyte type of the MX200 on OCinside.de today. We compare the Crucial MX200 1 TB SSD CT1000MX200SSD1 with the Crucial C300, m4, M500, M550, MX100, MX200 500 GB, and let many more solid state drives and hard drives compete against it."

    "Okay lets stop accentuating the negatives, because there are some good parts as well. For the compromises you do make you get a nice looking case that has a really nice mirrored finish emblem two fully autonomous USB 3.0 Ports and some small amount of foam on the inside of the panels to keep them from vibrating to the heartbeat of your hard drives for $50.00. The engineering is really neat as the whole top panel can be completely removed to easily build inside. Don't worry, there are no mention of the 10 screws that hold the top cover on, in the manual, but if you are fortunate enough to have read this review or you figured out on your own why they used Phillips head screws to hold the top panel instead of rivets, then you can remove them quickly and effortlessly and replace the top back on after the build is completed."

The HyperX Predator M.2 PCIe SSD utilizes the PCIe 2.0 x4 interface to achieve read speeds of up to 1.4GB/s and write speeds up to 1GB/s. When looking at IOPS, this SSD can deliver up to 160,000 read and 119,000 write! Sustained random 4K read/write is rated for up to 120K/78K respectively. Currently this SSD is available in 240GB and 480GB capacity, however a 960GB model will be released in the coming months."

  • NikkTech

    "Even up to 3-4 years ago none of us here expected to see a time (at least not as fast) when manufacturers would be able to release solid state drives (SSDs) with really good performance levels that would cost as low as USD0.35 per Gigabyte. Of course back then we also didn't expect to see SSD models (at least not for many years to come) that would be able to max-out the SATA III (6Gb/s) standard so i have to say that things turned out much better than we'd hoped (still i think they could had been even better). Further price reductions however as we speak seem to be the primary goal most manufacturers have so more and more models land around the price/capacity mark mentioned earlier in an effort to attract even casual users to the world of SSDs. Crucial just recently released their BX100 and MX200 lines and since we last tested the entry-level BX100 250GB model today we'll be testing their high-end MX200 250GB model."

As we have discussed, AMD's Mantle API was crucial to pushing the industry in the correct and necessary direction for lower level APIs, though NVIDIA's G-Sync deserves the same credit for recognizing and imparting the necessity of a move to a variable refresh display technology. Variable refresh displays can fundamentally change the way that PC gaming looks and feels when they are built correctly and implemented with care, and we have seen that time and time again with many different G-Sync enabled monitors at our offices.

    "After my recent review of the Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ITX I felt that I wasn't quite done with the review. What good is a case designed for watercooling with all air cooling installed? And aside from that travesty, I felt that in order to properly test Phanteks' made for watercooling mini-ITX case I should actually do a proper install. With that in mind follow along with this guide as I install a full custom loop in the Enthoo Evolv ITX."

  • "Soon after NVIDIA unveiled its G-SYNC technology, AMD announced that it would pursue an open standard, dubbed FreeSync, leveraging technologies already available in the DisplayPort specification to offer adaptive refresh rates to users of some discrete Radeon GPUs and AMD APUs. AMD's goal with FreeSync was to introduce a technology that offered similar end-user benefits to NVIDIA's G-SYNC, that didn't require monitor manufacturers to employ any proprietary add-ons (like NVIDIA's G-Sync module), and that could be adopted by any GPU maker. Though there were some technologies already available within the existing embedded DisplayPort specifications to support adaptive refresh rates, AMD still had to dedicate the resources necessary to enable FreeSync with its GPUs. AMD also had to help develop the software and hooks necessary for display manufacturers to enable FreeSync in their monitor firmware, which is what AMD has been up to since the initial FreeSync announcements were made. But now AMD is ready to release its first FreeSync capable set of drivers, and we've had the chance to play with them for a little while using a sleek, ultra-widescreen display from LG. The LG 34UM67 features an IPS panel with a native resolution of 2560x1080, a max refresh rate of 75Hz, and support for AMD FreeSync."

    "If you happen to be one of those people who like spending a small fortune to build a gaming rig then the two hardware components on top of your to buy list are (or at least should be) the best graphics cards available for dual/tri/quad configurations (the NVIDIA Titan X was just released by the way) and an power supply unit powerful enough to support them. Up to 10 years ago you'd really have a hard time to find models capable of outputting even 800W but things were quite different since tri/quad-card configurations were not really available back then. Today however in order to build a gaming rig with 3 or 4 graphics cards you need at least a 1200W PSU although that depends a lot on what cards you decide to use. Titanium and Platinum 80 Plus certified PSU models may have the spotlight on them since they offer the best electrical efficiency money can buy currently but that also means you can find 80 Plus Gold certified models for much less. The Aurum Pro 1200W by FSP is not amongst the newest models in the market since it has been around for roughly 3 years now but because we recently gave one away and many of you asked for it today we're going to take a closer look and see how it performs."

The GTX 970 offered better performance than the R9 290 as did the GTX 980 compared to the R9 290X; on top of that, both did so while running at lower power consumption and while including new features like DX12 feature level support, HDMI 2.0 and MFAA (multi-frame antialiasing).

Jen Hsun said that GeForce GTX Titan X cards featured 12GB of memory and a GPU that packed in roughly 8 billion transistors. Besides whatever we could discern from a few quick pictures, no other details were given. Today though, we can give you the full scoop.

It even includes 24 hours of free cloud storage, but if you require more than 24 hours of storage their rates are quite a bit less than DropCam's. So you can save money upfront and every month/year after that."

    "The SilverStone Kublai KL05B-W edition is the sport model of the two similar cases. This one has a very nice thin tall window to show just the right amount of glamour of your motherboard and cooling without showing too much. I find it a welcomed change to some of the other full paneled windowed versions that show every bad wiring mistake or give the appearance of TMI. "Too much Information". The SilverStone Kublai has a taller stance than most with a plastic top cover made to house the Radiator or fans depending on your building needs. This mostly gives room on the top side of the motherboard for any size radiator you might have including a nice fat radiator. The tall thin look of the Kublai is just an illusion because it still gives plenty of room for that large air cooling solution that you may have been thinking of."

Since then the AIO market has expanded quite a bit so CoolIT, Asetek and a few others have released numerous models over the years for the majority of the leading companies in the world (for example CoolIT only offers products through Corsair now) and for virtually all segments of the market from entry-level 120/140mm ones and up to high-end 240/360mm ones.

With arguably some of the best notebook keyboard and trackpad setups in the market, the ThinkPad line is built for road warriors and demanding professionals first, but the X1 Carbon straddles the line with light-weight composite carbon fiber construction and squeaks in at .73 inches thick and just hair over 3 pounds for touch-enabled models. Lenovo recently refreshed and revamped the ThinkPad X1 Carbon and in this third generation of the machine, they've adopted Intel's latest 5th generation Core Series Broadwell processors, along with a few other updates.

While it is agreed that better parity schemes exist, the exception is not the rule. My customer could have retained cold storage data to individual disks via removable drives, with no redundancy at all.

  • "The ThinkPad W530's 5.77 pound case is on the heavier end of today's standards, but it's light for a 15.6-inch workstation. That's partially thanks to Lenovo's choice of construction materials, which align with that of its other recent ThinkPad machines—that is to say, primarily a duo of glass-fiber reinforced plastic and magnesium alloy (for the internal frame). The materials don't feel as sleek as the aluminum and carbon fiber found on competitors' machines (such as the Dell Latitude and Precision series notebooks), but they are certainly sturdy enough, and the weight savings speak for themselves."

  • "Don't beat yourself up if you're not familiar with the Cougar brand. It's a German company that's been in the game since 2007, though its presence in the United States is largely overshadowed by companies like Razer and Logitech, two of the bigger dogs in the gaming peripherals scene. But like Roccat, another device maker headquartered in Germany, Cougar is making an effort to establish a higher level of brand recognition on our home turf by releasing competitive gaming gear that blend form and function. The product we're looking at here is Cougar's 600K Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. It's a subdued version of Cougar's flagship 700K intended for people who want the look and feel of the higher end plank, but not necessarily all the features (or price) that it comes with."

Nearly 30 years later, the technology has made great progress so that we can proudly present the latest generation of joysticks today - the Thrustmaster Hotas Warthog. In fact, it is a set of two devices. As the name implies, HOTAS means Hands On Throttle And Stick.

While they could easily have sat around enjoying the success that the Primo brought, the crew at Phanteks has instead been bringing us many many new and innovative cases. With their finger on the pulse of the mod community, each new case seems to fulfill a niche that the PC world has just been waiting to have filled. Certainly no exception to this rule, today we are taking a close look at the newest addition to the Phanteks family, the Enthoo Evolv ITX.

There are cases designed for the best cooling, others for aesthetics and others for silence, but often times, it is hard to find a case with the right mix of each of these design features in mind. When you are a gamer or enthusiast, you typically want a case built for good airflow and water cooling options, as well as something sleek and stylish that will last you a few builds. Something that is often overlooked however is sound output as cases that are quiet often restrict cooling."

Anyways a couple of weeks ago i was away with a friend trying to put my latest Mizuno shoes to the test when suddenly after almost 30 minutes of running my smartphone indicated that it was almost out of battery. Luckily I'm always prepared for that so while in one armband i have my smartphone in the other i have a small credit-card power bank (sometimes i carry a larger one) which can give my smartphone roughly 3 extra hours of life which although not really much especially if you use your smartphone a lot but for me and for that specific day it proved sufficient.

  • "It was being hunted... The monster had been avoiding a team of four hunters ever since it saw them jump out of the spaceship. But by the time the hunters' feet had touched the ground, the monster was already distancing itself, jumping over large boulders and running through trees in order to get away from the human threat. Along the way, it would slay any of the indigenous wildlife in its path, to devour, in order to evolve and become stronger. With a roar of defiance, the monster charges into a hail of bullets, determined to wipe out the group of hunters. But who really trapped it in that shimmering, blue dome? That is how you are going to feel when playing Evolve, a 4v1 multiplayer game developed by Turtle Rock Studios and published by 2K Games. It pits a player-controlled monster against four other players that assume the role of hunters tasked with tracking the monster down and killing it -- preferably before the monster becomes too strong and kills you all."

    "Nothing stays still in the electronics and computer industries at least not for long so something better always emerges not long after even the best model out there has rolled out of the factory. Of course that has its pros and cons since on one hand prices of early models get sliced making them a lot more affordable for mainstream consumers and/or manufacturers (if we're talking about components) but on the other hand you never get to have the best out there, not for long. Because of that it's quite unfortunate that manufacturers haven't focused much in the production of good ADSL/ADSL2+ modem/routers and that's actually something that has been in my mind for many years especially since ADSL/ADSL2+ is still the primary connection type via which people access the internet in many countries including Greece. Well Netgear always seems to come to the rescue with their solutions like the D6300 AC1600 Dual Band Gigabit Modem Router which we've been thoroughly testing for quite some time now."

The exterior again has an aggressive, angular look with the entire enclosure sitting up slightly at the rear and tilted forward. Though the overall effect is likely less visually exciting than the original, depending on taste, in its simplicity the design feels more refined and modern than the RV01. Some of the sharpest angles have been eliminated or softened, though the squat stance coupled with its smaller size gives the RV05 an energetic appearance - as if it's ready to strike.

A large clear windowed panel with an all black sprayed interior, drive mounting that is very well thought out, semi tool-less designs and a special place for that AIO or all in one 240 X 120mm hydro cooler. They even offer the gamer an indirect intake air cooling from the side gills to keep the front nice clean and less noisy and you get that "Monster Corsair Obsidian" look on the front end with the faux brushed aluminum anodized look of a plastic front end. No one will know but you and it beats the other cases that are in this price range by a country mile. Would you believe it? Well truthfully I am slightly skeptical too, but I really am rooting for Corsair's newest 100R Carbide Series Case to make a true believer out of me, but we will see as the Review continues on. So let's see if this nice looking "Econ-o-Box" can stand up to a gaming setup and how will it fit the needs?

We don't really need to point out that it was the latest Desktop SSHD 4TB by Seagate that really changed things since being the very first 3.5" hybrid drive in the market means that manufacturers are finally turning towards desktop drives that offer both higher performance levels and larger capacities. Of course that doesn't mean that manufacturers will just cease all development of 2.5" hybrid drives, far from it especially since such drives are quite popular especially amongst laptop and HTPC owners.

    "Each day in the technology field there is a new advancement or improvement, whether that be faster solid state drive's, televisions with increased visual quality, or cameras that take pictures in extreme detail. However, with these improvements it is common to find a subfield that slows down the process, such in the case of videography and it's storage. As the demand for higher resolution video content increase (I.e., 4K television), so does the demand for storage options that can handle the content. The dilemma here lies when a videographer is filming a video in a high-resolution, the content not only requires larger than normal storage capacities, but also the transfer speed must be able to accompany the content. No one wants to waste their valuable time watching as Windows transfers the video file in slow motion."

    "The AZZA XT1 Full-Tower Gaming case has it all. With great features offered in only some of the highest-end products, the AZZA XT1 makes a great case for consumers on a larger budget and even some enthusiast who want to go with a full-fledged customized water cooling system. It also features a lot of expand abilities for multiple hard drives and solid state drive configurations. The AZZA XT1 will accommodate XL-ATX motherboards thanks to its full-tower design. With this accommodation, it has a total of eight expansion slots at the back of the case allowing flexible and unlimited expand abilities."

  • "The highly anticipated 450D mid-tower case is Corsair's latest addition to their top of the line Obsidian Series and is the first new Obsidian case to be released in 2014. The Obsidian 450D mid-tower enclosure is positioned between Corsair's 750D full-tower and 350D Micro-ATX enclosures and shares many of the same styling and design concepts of the 350D, 750D and 900D. The 450D is being introduced with an MSRP of $119.99 USD, which makes it considerably less expensive than Corsair's classic Obsidian 650D mid-tower enclosure ($199.99 USD). It appears the new 450D may eventually become the successor to the 650D but we hope the 650D mid-tower case doesn't go away any time soon as the two enclosures are still different enough to appeal to different users."

    Sapphire originally released their R9 280X Vapor-X back when the R9 280X's were launched. The card was factory overclocked and featured Sapphire's Dual-X cooler. Well Sapphire is releasing a new version of the card that makes use of Sapphire's own exclusive Vapor-X cooling with its new Tri-X triple fan design. This should keep the Tahiti GPU nice a cool. On top of that this card is again factory overclocked, features Black Diamond chokes and a full Solid Cap design, and has dual BIOS support. Is this the R9 280X that you are looking for?

In this case, however, Cooler Master managed to choose two names for their latest creation, arising not from imagination, because at Mizar and Alcor are two stars that are located in the constellation Big Mouse uh Ursa Major.

    "As I'm sure we are all aware overclockers, enthusiasts, professionals and even gamers always like to spend as much as possible when building and/or updating their systems to ensure the best possible performance and endurance through time. Some may focus mostly on processing power, others on available memory and others on the graphics but what they all have in common is the extra weight when picking the right CPU cooling system. However the largest segment of the market is actually taken by casual users who are not really interested in spending lots of money for a system and that makes things a bit harder since price/performance is always an issue. There are of course countless low-cost entry level CPU coolers in the market of every size and type but with a few exceptions performance is not something they excel at. Today we will be taking a look at one such solution and more specifically the Fera 2 HE 1224 by SilentiumPC."

Perhaps the best example we can give currently is to look at 80 Plus Gold certified PSUs which although just three years ago were at the top of the pyramid and cost an arm and a leg (short of speak) to purchase today have fallen third behind 80 Plus Titanium and Platinum certified PSUs. Well it goes without saying that enthusiasts, professionals and even some of the more demanding gamers will choose one of the new Titanium or Platinum certified PSUs for their systems but for the majority of consumers out there 80 Plus Gold is an excellent choice and so because of that today we will be taking a thorough look at the TruePower Classic 650W (TP-650C) model by Antec."

    "It's common knowledge that the appearance of consumer oriented Solid State Drives (SSDs) revolutionized the storage industry but even after several years in the market their price/capacity ratio is nowhere close to the one of regular mechanical drives and that's something that drives away casual consumers who are not really interested in getting the highest possible performance levels. Well because manufacturers know how the market works the next obvious step for them was to somehow marry the high performance levels of SSDs with the capacity of regular HDDs in order to dish out something just as fast but with higher capacity and lower price and out of that marriage hybrid drives were born. Unfortunately although the first attempts did offer some performance improvements at roughly the same price as regular HDDs they weren't very successful in convincing consumers that this was the way to go. Today we will be taking a very thorough look at the latest Desktop SSHD 4TB model which is actually Seagate's very first attempt in combining the speed of an SSD with the large capacity of a 3.5" HDD."
