ASRock FM2A85X Extreme6 Socket FM2 Mainboard Review (Part 7)
As the Turbo Core technology lowers the processor frequency to the level under the nominal value at high loads, the real power consumption of the system cannot be measured exactly. Therefore, we decide to accept a compromise and disable the parameter of CPB Mode in the mainboard’ BIOS.
ASRock FM2A85X Extreme6 Socket FM2 Mainboard Review (Part 6)
Just as usual, we will compare the mainboard’s speeds of the mainboard in two different modes: nominal mode and during overclocking all components of the system: processor, integrated graphics card, memory. The first mode brings many interesting things as it proves how well the mainboard works with other default settings.
ASRock FM2A85X Extreme6 Socket FM2 Mainboard Review (Part 5)
Rebooting the system one more time just to see the right timing seems to be inconvenient. Hopefully, it is just a temporary flaw need to be corrected rather than a mean solution.
ASRock FM2A85X Extreme6 Socket FM2 Mainboard Review (Part 4)
When being in the idle mode, the CPU frequency multiplier is still reduced to x14 but its voltage remains unchanged. We knew that the MSI mainboard for Intel’s CPU cannot be overclocked without the power-saving technology being disabled, and we just found out that EVGA mainboard also behaves in just the same way, but we do not hope that ASRock mainboard for AMD Socket FM2 CPU would join that list.
ASRock FM2A85X Extreme6 Socket FM2 Mainboard Review (Part 3)
Unfortunately, our Crucial m4 SSD (CT256M4SSD2, 256 GB, SATA 6 Gbit/s) had been broken down even before we got the test down the af6 level. It has just worked with our testing system for more than a year. It suddenly stopped working when our device was operating at the default setting and identified by BIOS after ceasing.
ASRock FM2A85X Extreme6 Socket FM2 Mainboard Review (Part 2)
We have been very familiar with the ASRock’s UEFI BIOS and so many times did we point out that their interfaces are so convenient to work with, and the more-than-enough functions for a successful overclocking and adjusting the system.
ASRock FM2A85X Extreme6 Socket FM2 Mainboard Review (Part 1)
This ASRock mainboard owns the accessories set, design and specifications which are almost the same with that of other premium Socker FM2 mainboards on the market. Moreover, it can stand out with a great number of exclusive advantages that none of its competitors has.
Asus F2A85-V PRO Mainboard - A Socket FM2 Mainboard With Good Performance (Part 2)
Just like the packaging, a few design features in F2A85-V PRO indicate that it is an Asus product. The board itself looks quite common. We can just take it for granted, but we are also suprised about it.
Asus F2A85-V PRO Mainboard - A Socket FM2 Mainboard With Good Performance (Part 7)
Asus F2A85-V PRO creates a positive impression. It actually has a few weaknesses, like any other mainboard from any other mainboard maker, but they are not critical. However, when it comes to advantages, they have a lot.
Asus F2A85-V PRO Mainboard - A Socket FM2 Mainboard With Good Performance (Part 6)
As usual, we intend to compare the mainboard's speed in two modes: in nominal mode and during overclocking of all system components processor, integrated graphics core, memory. The first mode is interesting because it demonstrates how well the mainboards work with their default settings.
Asus F2A85-V PRO Mainboard - A Socket FM2 Mainboard With Good Performance (Part 4)
Assembling a configuration based on the Asus F2A85-V PRO did not cause any problems. The first system boot also ran smoothly. Upon system boot the board displays a startup image, which, unfortunately, does not contain any suggestion on the list of available hot keys, unlike the products from other mainboard manufacturers.
Asus F2A85-V PRO Mainboard - A Socket FM2 Mainboard With Good Performance (Part 3)
By default, the "EZ Mode" is enabled in the BIOS. It shows most of the informational function, because there are barely any configurable parameters there. You can check basic system settings, some monitoring information, select a performance or power saving mode and set the order of boot-up devices by simply dragging them with the mouse pointer.
Asus F2A85-V PRO Mainboard - A Socket FM2 Mainboard With Good Performance (Part 1)
This mainboard looks great, convenient to use, provides multiple functions and high efficiency. However, its price is relatively high price and it's not a power saving mainboard. It actually has some pros and a few cons, which we will announce in this review.
Matias Quiet Pro - A Mechanical Keyboard With Less Clickety-Clack
The keyboard is not always high on the list of considerations for those buying a new computer or looking to upgrade their old one. Some may prefer to spend money on a high-end monitor, or cram in as much RAM as possible.
The Assemblage Of GeForce GTX 650 Ti Graphics Cards (Part 7)
The distance is very large. GeForce GTX 650 Ti 1GB is averagely slower from 37% to 40% than GeForce GTX 660 when the full-screen anti-aliasing feature is off and on respectively. The difference in price between them is 37%. The 2-GB version of GTX 650 Ti is not much better, through the system scoring; the extra 1-GB memory doesn’t offer any different benefit.
The Assemblage Of GeForce GTX 650 Ti Graphics Cards (Part 6)
To perform the test session for the GeForce GTX 650 Ti products, we decide to choose only 1 resolution, which is 1,920x1,080 pixels, controller that supports this resolution is only sold for several GeForce GTX 650 Ti graphics cards. This graphics card is not suitable for higher resolution because the performance is insufficient, and any resolution under 1,920x1,080 pixels has absolutely no problem for all testing products.
The Assemblage Of GeForce GTX 650 Ti Graphics Cards (Part 5)
Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti, EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti SSC and 2 graphics card from ZOTAC don’t have the fan speed controller, so we build a graph by extrapolating biggest fan speed (based on the technical specs) to lower the voltage.
The Assemblage Of GeForce GTX 650 Ti Graphics Cards (Part 4)
Zotac offers 3 GeForce GTX 650 Ti models and we choose the fastest one among them: Zotac GeForce GTX 650 Ti AMP! Edition. There is info about the products and the Nvidia tech on the front and the back of the small cardboard containing box.
The Assemblage Of GeForce GTX 650 Ti Graphics Cards (Part 3)
Among the graphics card tested today, we can’t fail to mention the product of Gigabyte. A company has received the reputation thanks to its own solutions for the PCB designs, increased clock rate and unique coolers. The new Gigabyte GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB (GV-N65TOC-2GI) is a typical example.
The Assemblage Of GeForce GTX 650 Ti Graphics Cards (Part 2)
EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti SSC is made in China and has the price of 149.9$. Included in this price is the official 3-year warranty of the manufacturer. EVGA offers 4 products for the GeForce GTX 650 Ti graphics card. The product we out on a test here is one of the 2 faster variants (the other version is equipped with 2-GB memory).
The Assemblage Of GeForce GTX 650 Ti Graphics Cards (Part 1)
The graphics card family having the price from 100$ to 200$ is known as the products that meet the highest demand of the users. Representing for these current generations of product are the Radeon HD 7850 and HD 7870 line of AMD and GeForce GTX 660 and 660 Ti of Nvidia, they support all cutting-edge techs and are able to reach the moderate performance for the latest 3D game apps.
G.Skill DDR3 SDRAM 32GB Review (Part 6)
Although we have only tested products from G.Skill in this review, we are able to make a far more general conclusion. We have made sure that today’s dual-channel memory controllers integrated into Ivy Bridge CPUs can easily operate with four-module DDR3 SDRAM configurations, with two modules per channel.
G.Skill DDR3 SDRAM 32GB Review (Part 5)
The G.Skill memory kits are promising in terms of overclocking potential. Although they include twice the normal number of DDR3 SDRAM modules, they feature effective cooling capacity and high-quality chips. G.Skill is also famous for its ability to provide products with a large safety margin.
G.Skill DDR3 SDRAM 32GB Review (Part 4)
Since the primary target platform for the above discussed memory kits is Ivy Bridge + Intel Z77, we will examine 32 GB G.Skill kits containing four 8GB modules each in an LGA 1155 system built on Asus P8Z77-V Deluxe mainboard. Because the overclocking memory modules reviewed today are primarily purchased by enthusiasts, we also used Intel Core i5-3570K processor overclocked to 4.5GHz.
G.Skill DDR3 SDRAM 32GB Review (Part 3)
The G.Skill RipjawsZ represents further revolution of the RipjawsX series that we have discussed above. The first Ropjaws kits were marketed as quad-channel memory for LGA2011 platforms but ultimately, this name was applied to the specific shape of the radiators and the RipjawsZ was also positioned as dual-channel memory for LGA1155 platforms as well.
G.Skill DDR3 SDRAM 32GB Review (Part 2)
The RipjawsX series appeared in G.Skill’s products range along with the introduction of Intel’s second-generation Core processors, so it was designed for Sandy Bridge CPUs and platforms in the first place. The current position has changed, so today, the RipjawsX series consists of high-quality modules for mid-range computers.
G.Skill DDR3 SDRAM 32GB Review (Part 1)
Installing four memory modules with a total capacity of 32GB into a system with a dual-channel memory controller hasn’t been such a big deal lately. Let’s check out a few overclocker kits from G.Skill that could perfectly fit the bill.
Sapphire Vapor-X CPU Cooler - Brings Its GPU Inspired Cooling Tech To The CPU Party
Sapphire do a very nice line of tweaked video cards, if you've not noticed. The majority of these utilise a technology called Vapor-X, which first appeared on their 'Atomic' line back in 2007. It's taken five years for Sapphire to offer it as a CPU option, but now you can get Vapor-X cooling for your AMD or Intel CPU.
Seasonic And Enhance Junior PSUs - Compact Power Supply (Part 5) : Enhance ENP-7025E
At load 250W, this PSU has the lowest rated power in this review because others have rated power from 300 to 350W. However, that's enough for compact PCs, because many of them come with 200W or lower PSUs.
Seasonic And Enhance Junior PSUs - Compact Power Supply (Part 4) : Enhance FLEX-0130B
As indicated by its model's name, Enhance FLEX-0130B is design in the FlexATX's form-factor. This product is 150 rather than 190.5 mm long but otherwise meets the FlexATX requirements perfectly.
Seasonic And Enhance Junior PSUs - Compact Power Supply (Part 3) : Seasonic SS-300TGW
This PSU is designed in the TFX12V form-factor (Thin Form Factor with 12V connection), which is optimized for computer cases 9 to 15 liters large. That's not the smallest but quite widespread, type of compact computer case.
Seasonic And Enhance Junior PSUs - Compact Power Supply (Part 2)
Working together with our APC SmartUPS SC 620, the SS-300M1U was stable at its full load of 300 watts when powered by the mains and could switch to the UPS’s batteries at the same load, too.
Seasonic And Enhance Junior PSUs - Compact Power Supply (Part 1)
The versatility of the compact power units is flooding: SFX12V (in several different implementations), TFX12V, CFX12V, LFX12V, FlexATX... So, we will discuss the units from two very popular categories: TFX12V units are commonly used in compact system cases, while FlexATX power units are also a popular choice for U1 servers.
Just Your Type? (Part 2) : Corsair Vengeance K90, Rosewill Rk-9100 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard, Roccat Isku
THE CORSAIR Vengeance K90 launched early last year alongside the Vengeance K60. It is, at heart, an expanded version of that board, fitted with a vast bank of customizable macro keys at the far left, and a detachable rubberized wrist rest.
Just Your Type? (Part 1) : Razer Death-Stalker Ultimate, Cyborg S.T.R.I.K.E. 7, Logitech G710+
THE RAZER DEATHSTALKER is really a thing to behold. The gaming keyboard is thin, sleek, and nicely designed with tri-color glowing keys, but nothing draws your attention like the "Switchblade" user interface, borrowed from the Razer Blade gaming laptop.
PC Hardware Buyer's Guide - Silent Graphics Card (Part 3) : Sapphire Radeon HP 7750 Ultimate, Zotac GeForce GT 640 Zone Edition, Club3D Radeon HD 7750 RoyalQueen
Sapphire's Radeon HD 7750 Ultimate is the company's attempt to make a fanless graphics card using AMD's HD 7000 series design, and before we go any further, let's defuse the tension: it's really quite good indeed.
PC Hardware Buyer's Guide - Silent Graphics Card (Part 2) : SapphireRadeon HD 6450 FleX, Asus GeForce GT 620 DirectCU Silent, HIS Radeon HD 5450 Silence
Despite being released after the arrival of the Radeon HD 6000 series, the HIS Radeon HD 5450 Silence was never designed to be a high-end card. Rather, the emphasis was always on silent running. With that in mind, we can forgive its aging architecture, and instead praise its innovations - and unlike some cards in this guide, this one does have some.
PC Hardware Buyer's Guide - Silent Graphics Card (Part 1) : Asus GeForce EN210, KFA2 GeForce GT 610
The model number beginning with a '6' might make you think that the GeForce GT 610 is a 28nm Kepler card but the truth is that they're just 5-series Fermi cards re-released under a later numbering system. Sneaky. The GeForce GT 610 is actually a re-packaged GeForce GT 520 with some slight improvements, although none worth mentioning.
Bluetooth Illuminated Keyboard K810 - Switchers Welcome
Using a Bluetooth keyboard with more than one device can be a royal pain. If both devices are on, you sometimes have to tell one to forget the keyboard exists, so it'll be available for the other. Logitech's Easy-Switch feature kills this problem. You can pair the K810 with three devices (say, a Mac, an iPad, and your Apple TV), then just hit a button to switch between them.
Fractal Design Define XL R2 Case
Full tower cases optimized for quietness aren't all that common in the case market, because those who need such a case are likely to fill it with hardware requiring lots of noisy air cooling. Fractal's Define series, however, is renowned for its ability to keep systems quiet, but the original XL missed the mark a little due to some odd design quirks and its relatively expensive price.
