The Lexa S is an updated version of the classic Lexa and Lexa Blackline Series, which goes into a totally different direction. With a much lower price point it is stuffed with a radically different set of features along with four, white bladed fans, a fan controller and the possibility to use a dual radiator within the case. These are just some of the numerous new features of the Lexa S, while the review goes into all the details.
After many hours of testing, the Seasonic S12D 750W power supply proved itself to be a pretty solid unit. It even bested a popular 80 Plus certified PC Power & Cooling brand unit rated for the same total power. Among other things, the S12D 750W is solidly built, very quiet under load, and considerably smaller than its PC Power & Cooling counterpart.
I have always been a little skeptical about notebook coolers. When Cooler Master asked if we had anyone that wanted to take a look at a new notebook cooler they have, the Cooler Master NotePal X2. Having recently purchased my first laptop (nothing special) I figured why not.
"I want you to imagine for a moment that your laptop or desktop has just crashed. Every personal document, every e-mail, every file and photo is gone. All of the data on the hard drive is gone. . . What do you do? Attempt to recover the data by yourself? Use an expensive data recovery service? Try to recover what you can from older copies on thumbdrives or on CD or DVD that may be months old or older? Keep in mind that much of who we are in these modern times exists in a digital format. So I ask the question "When does your data become important?"
"Kingwin's XT-1264 CPU cooler is a good looking product with some interesting features that should have delivered some outstanding performance. Unfortunately, it showed some rather lackluster cooling performance. There are, however some features and attributes that keep the XT-1264 from being a total bust."
In this Review the performance and the overclocking of a Crucial Ballistix Tracer PC3-10600 CL6 4GB DDR3 kit are tested and compared with 16 Dual Channel kits of previous reviews. Since current AMD processors supports DDR3 memory modules, DDR3 Dual Channel kits got more demand. Because who like to build a new PC system with an AMD Phenom II processor, surely prefer a motherboard with DDR3 Dual Channel support. This OC review will show the difference between DDR3 and DDR2 RAM and the review will also show how far this DDR3 kit can be overclocked on a current AMD 790GX system.
As laptops continue to outsell desktops, the market of laptop/notebook accessories continues to grow. One of the bigger accessories the larger audience is looking into are notebook coolers. While many of these coolers tend to look bulky, bland, and sometimes just plain ugly, GlacialTech has taken a new approach with their X-Wing Series R1 Notebook Cooler.
"With the recent release of the first fully DirectX 11 compatible graphics card, AMD have dealt a good first blow to nVidia, with the 5870 offering performance exceeding nVidias fastest single GPU card the GTX285 and the 5850 offering impressive performance for £100 less. However if history tells us anything it is that high end cards are not where most purchasers will be putting their hard earned cash and as a result the 5700 series will be far more critical to AMDs success in this latest generation of graphics cards, than the 5800 series. If this mid-range series of graphics card sell well then AMD will do very well the graphics hardware market, it really is that crucial."
"While the HD58xx-series card may have a bit more kick to them, the HD5770 should be able to give the consumers good performance with a decent price. To help us find out, HIS hooked us up with a HD5770."
TechwareLabs alone has reviewed several of INWIN’s new cases which include, “Allure,” and the “B23 and have been very impressed with their design and function. Recently, INWIN has now sent us their “X-Fighter” case to review which initially looked a lot like the INWIN B2 case, but shortly after removing the case from the box, we were pleasantly surprised by the differences.

The Sapphire Radeon 5750 did perform much better than I had expected it to. When comparing it against the 4000 series cards we could see that it was a very nice jump in performance, while others stayed very close to the new mid-range low end card.
"Evercool's Transformer 4 CPU cooler, with its dual 120mm fans, 8mm copper heatpipes and direct touch design should be a top performer in the CPU cooling market. Its enormous size alone would seem to insure excellent cooling. However, as we see in the testing, the T4 just isn't able to keep up with the competition."
Coming right on the heels of the HD5800 series launch, ATI brings us another batch of cards based on class-leading 40nm GPUs and GDDR5 memory. The new cards, Radeon HD5770 and HD5750, use the same architecture as the new HD5800 series, but ATI basically cut the Cypress chip in half to create a brand new video card with hardware specs somewhere between an HD4870 and an HD4890. If you're thinking that's not a bad place to be, but want to see some proof of how the HD5770 performs, Benchmark Reviews is pleased to offer you the results of our extensive testing.
AMD's next step in their Radeon HD 5000 release strategy is the Radeon HD 5770 which is based on the new 40 nm Juniper core. It features 800 shaders and 1 GB of GDDR5 memory on a 128-bit bus. Essentially this makes the card perform like a HD 4870 but adds new features like DirectX 11, ATI Eyefinity and reduced power consumption.
It gives me a great pleasure to introduce to you Cooler Master, Elite 310 case. The Elite 310 is a mid tower computer case which is capable of holding micro and standard ATX motherboards. This particular model comes with 420 Watt power supply, which is always a plus. Elite 310 is a simple case for an every day users which requires the looks and performance from the case.
Overall, I was pleased with the NZXT Beta. It is much like any other mid-tower case out there today. Advantages include the fact that installation is easy albeit no manual is included. There is a lot of room for all your hardware. With the ability to have a total of four 120mm fans, cooling should not be an issue. Some things that could be improved and that I would like to see are the addition of a removable motherboard tray and better build quality.
