Vantec LapCool Pro Notebook Cooler Review

Notebooks today are faster and hotter than ever. However they're not getting any thicker. In fact they're thinner than they've ever been. So where does all that heat go? Well, notebook manufacturers are doing their best to design notebooks that not so much vent the heat, but more so can handle the high heat environment. We all know that heat can be the death of electronics, so relieving your notebook of the heat is absolutely crucial to its long term reliability and performance. @ Virtual-Hideout @

Tuniq Potency 550W PSU Review

think that the Tuniq Potency 550W is an excellent budget PSU. It has exhibited low voltage droop and excellent ripple mechanics under load conditions. Better yet, we found it for about $55 after rebate. With a price like that, we can't recommend this PSU enough. @ Icrontic.com

Antec EarthWatts EA650 650 Watt PSU Review

The Antec EarthWatts 650 Watt is a great addition to the EarthWatts series of power supplies.  While the outer shell and cables are plain, the performance and value make up for this.  It offers a modest amount of connectors and features a quiet fan.  At a affordable price of around $85-$100, this is the perfect power supply for anyone looking for a affordable power supply that is also energy efficient, but keep in mind that there are only two PCI-e power connectors, so multi-gpu is limited to cards that require only one pci-e power connector. @ TechAddicts

Intel Core i7 Memory Analysis Can Dual Channel Cut it?

DDR was Intel’s only reprieve, well after its introduction due to Rambus agreements. However, since that time Intel has not only used DDR, but improved on it. Now that we have seen Intel’s pattern with memory we see that not only are they banking a huge amount on their DDR3 technology, but also increasing the bus from 128-bit or dual channel to 192-bit or tri channel memory.

Today’s question we pose; does Core i7 really need three channels of memory or can it perform happily on two channels without severely impacting the performance of the system? - Let's find out! @ TweakTown @

DFI LANParty JR P45 T2RS motherboard

The DFI LANParty JR P45 T2RS tries to bridge the gap between enthusiast and the average Joe Martin user and gets stuck at what it does best - offering the end user a chance to endless abuse the CPU-northbridge and memory, while entirely forgetting that it needs a variety of features to compete more competently in the P45 arena.

Tom Clancys Endwar

Tom Clancy's Endwar does show that it's possible to do RTS on a console, it's just that Ubisoft has achieved it by stripping out many of the things that make RTSes what they are. That's a bit like taking an F1 car and making it street legal by replacing the engine with one from a Mini Metro. Sure, it's still theoretically an F1 car, but it's not very exciting to drive.

Shaun White Snowboarding

  The game doesn’t just reward button-mashers either and though the landing criteria are fairly lax for the most part so that you don’t need to be perfectly lined up with the ground, you’ll still need to have a decent understanding of timings if you want to get some sick scores.

Silverstone NT06 Evolution Heatpipe CPU Cooler Review

In conclusion, SilverStone has a great product in the NT06 Evolution cooler. Its cooling performance is surprisingly good when coupled with a quiet, low-flow fan and very good when airflow increases. I like its compactness and relatively low mass and it looks pretty good as well. With a lower cost and an improved mounting solution, the NT06 Evolution would be a excellent value, but these issues drop it back a bit in this regard. @ Tweaknews.net @

QNAP TS-509 Pro Turbo NAS Review

From start to finish, QNAP has done everything right with the TS-509 Pro. The packaging is simple and filled with useful information for the customer looking at one at a store. The product is packaged securely with no place to go and well protected from any possible scratches or dents during shipment. The specifications scream high end with dual gigabit networking, RAID 0, 1, 5 and 6 for five hot-swappable SATA II drives. @ Overclockers Online

Intel X25-M 80GB 2.5-inch Solid State Disk

The testing for the new Intel X25-M has been completed for a couple of weeks now, but I have been putting off writing the article. Reviewers are faced with tough decisions from time to time; generally it is because we had found a fatal flaw and try to work with a company to correct the issue. This time the flaw is simply that the drive is too good. Intel is saying that their first entry into the consumer SSD market is able to read up to 250 MB/s, while other products are claiming a maximum of 175 MB/s. Honestly, who in their right mind would want to send over a consumer SSD for us to review knowing that it would be compared to the Intel X25-M? - Where do I sign up for unemployment because my job is gone?

Crucial Ballistix Tracer 4GB DDR3-1333 Memory Review

DDR3 is fast becoming the new standard as all things computer change. Memory makers know that some standards don't have to be exceeded, but improved rather. Here is a good case and point. I have here a Crucial Ballistix Tracer DDR3 1333MHz 4GB Dual Channel Memory Kit. It's not, 1600 MHz, or 1800 MHz, but a solid supported 1333 MHz. What's so special about it? Check out the specs and I'll sum it up for you after. @ Virtual-Hideout @
