Antec Six Hundred 600 Gaming Mid-Tower Computer Case

Antec Six Hundred 600 Gaming Mid-Tower Computer Case

Antec's Six Hundred gaming chassis has proven to be a bit of a mixed bag. I like the look and the few features that it has are quite good, but Antec touts it as, “The Ultimate Gaming Case.” I'll take exception with them on this point.

ASUS VW266H Monitor

ASUS VW266H Monitor

Yet another huge and affordable LCD monitor review! We know you love big monitors because we all do. That's why Benchmark Reviews has today the ASUS VW266H 16:10 Widescreen LCD Monitor. Not long ago any LCD screen was cost prohibitive for us working class computer folks, and a stretch for even the well heeled. Well, enter the 21st century because that was then and this is now. Folks, this is a 25.5" 16:10 aspect ratio 1900x1200 native resolution LCD monitor for under 280 USD (I bought mine with a 30.00 USD rebate too). No, that's not a typo. It's 25.5", really. Still not interested? You should be because this panel is a nice piece of hardware for business, gaming, and all around computer use with the added luxury of having 25.5" of desktop space.

Computex 2011 Booth Babe Edition

Computex 2011 Booth Babe Edition

I may have said this before but there are actually two shows going on at Computex. You have the main hardware and computer based show and the second show which includes booth babes, showgirls, and other assorted models tasked with attracting visitors to their booth. While I am not at the show for the girls it is difficult to ignore their existence. In fact based on past traffic numbers neither can you.

Silicon Power V20 Series 120GB SSD

Silicon Power V20 Series 120GB SSD

Cracking open the Silicon Power V20 series SSD, we find a SF-1222TA3-SBH controller, the same controller utilised in OCZ's Vertex 2 SSD's. While for storage Silicon Power have included Micron-branded 29F64G08CFABA MLC based 34nm Flash NAND modules. This is the same NAND module utilised for the majority of Vertex 2 E SSD's, apart some of the late few that have moved to a smaller NAND process.

Super Talent Demos SandForce-powered USB 3.0 Flash Drive

Super Talent Demos SandForce-powered USB 3.0 Flash Drive

While it was not all that long ago we took a look at the Super Talent SuperCrypt and were blown away by its speeds, it was a tad on the bulky side for every day carry. It seems that if you wanted "Solid State Drive" levels of speed from a flash drive, you needed to be willing to give up some portability to get it. Well, that is about to change with the release of the all new Super Talent RC8 flash drive.

Creative Live inPerson Webcam does Strong HD Video Even on Weaker PCs or Macs

Creative Live inPerson Webcam does Strong HD Video Even on Weaker PCs or Macs

Creative is launching a new model of webcam with brains. No, it's not the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising, though it could be the best thing that's happened to webcams since Chatroulette. Creative's Live inPerson HD webcam does 720p video and handles the encoding with specialized on-board processors. The dedicated H.264 HD encoding processors take a load off of your old laptop or underpowered net-book. As a result, video will be crisper and crashes will be less frequent as your PC spends less effort on video compression.

Evercool Transformer 3 Heatsink

Evercool Transformer 3 Heatsink

In this review Frostytech will be putting the Evercool Transformer 3 heatsink through its paces. The Transformer 3 is a tower-style heatsink which stands exactly 160mm tall. The cooler comes with a single 120mm PWM fan that operates at speeds of 2200RPM to 800RPM, though a second fan can added to the rear if desired. Four white vibration absorbing rubber posts are used to reduce vibrations from the fan motor to the heatsink, extra fan posts are supplied. The heatsink stands 160mm tall, is 130mm wide and 78mm deep with the single fan.

Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD4-B3 Motherboard

Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD4-B3 Motherboard

If the lack of support for integrated graphics doesn't bother you, Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD4-B3 is a good and promising choice. It stands out among typical mid-end solutions by having richer functionality (two USB 3.0 and two additional SATA 6Gbps controllers), comes with a lot of software utilities, and you don't have to pay for extra hardware features you might not need. Also, the Touch BIOS adds nice variety to all those implementations of UEFI.

Installing a Server OS in Intel Media Series Motherboards Guide

Installing a Server OS in Intel Media Series Motherboards Guide

Having seen Missing Remote’s reviews of the Intel Media Series motherboards it should be clear that they provide a solid foundation for a home theater PC (HTPC) build, but because they also include Intel NICs (network interface controller) there is a strong case to use one for your next server build as well.  Unfortunately, Intel does not support server operating systems (OS) like Windows 2008 R2 (W2K8R2), which provides the foundation for Windows Home Server 2011 (WHS), so the installation process is more involved than it should be.

Corsair Graphite 600T White Special Edition Case

Corsair Graphite 600T White Special Edition Case

When the Corsair 600T was first released it was only available in gun-metal gray and as we all know black has been in style for years, but is starting to get boring. Corsair recognized this and has 'refreshed' the 600T in order to bring out a Special Edition White case that looks pretty stunning with a mixture of white and black bezels. The Special Edition white also comes with a hole in the side panel that you can insert either an acrylic window or mesh panel into depending on how you want to configure the case. Both panels are included, which is a nice touch as you can change it when your needs change down the road...

Aerocool X-Vision Fan Controller

Aerocool X-Vision Fan Controller

The new X-Vision is of Aerocool's simpler models, but still remains very functional and looks great. It provides the user with five channels of controls, capable of delivering up to 8 watts on each. Additionally it has thermal sensors to monitor temperatures in whatever location you put them, per-fan RPM readout and the voltage they are running at. For fan regulation options, the X-Vision has the ability to adjust fan speeds manually or by system temps based on the thermal sensors. This may be your next fan controller, so come on in to see if it has what you're looking for.
