For most consumers, Intel might not be the first name to come to mind when building a new PC, but the company offers a rather robust line-up of boards for each chipset it releases. We’re looking at the $140 “mainstream” DP55WG, which has an simple overall feature-set, but includes support for IR and also NVIDIA’s SLI.
In the time I’ve been reviewing power supplies here at jonnyGURU.com, I’ve tested big power supplies, little power supplies, and just about every power supply in between. Until today, I’ve never gone looking to completely max out my testing equipment. But that’s about to change. Dear readers, I give you one of only two power supplies currently on the North American market capable of over 1500 watts of output. I give you the Silverstone Strider Series ST1500.
Do you have one of the new i7 or i5 processors yet? You do? I guess you’re probably going to overclock it too. That’s why you bought it, right? Our next review sample, the Titan Fenrir, is ready to take your air cooling on head first. “But, wait. Who is Titan? What is the Fenrir?,” you ask. Titan is a new kid on the cooling block and they’ve been making some noise with the performance on their Flagship Cooler, Fenrir. Taking its name after the Norse demi-god wolf who bit the hand off the God Tyr, the Fenrir has turned out to be quite the cooler among some air cooling enthusiast circles.

Today for review I’ve got a great little product from Cirago called the CiragoTV Mini. It’s a USB Media player that’s small in size but yet big in features. The unit is a very small box, about 3 inches by 3 inches in size and less that an inch thick, it comes with it’s own small power supply and a small remote as well. The CiragoTV Mini has the ability to access USB flash drives, USB hard drive and several types of memory cards with outputs for HDMI and even standard composite audio and video. With the CiragoTV Mini you can access several types of files, the most popular video and audio formats, along with pictures as well to show them on your TV for your viewing pleasure. It’s small enough to take with you if you want to, you can easily grab a 2.5” hard drive and the CiragoTV Mini and take it to your friends house, or even use it for work presentations if need be. So continue on for a look at a very innovative and an overall great little product…
The GeForce GT 220 video card’s 48 processing cores do not really provide enough horse power to play today’s popular game titles with some of the eye candy turned on. With twice as many stream processors the EVGA GeForce GT 240 SuperClocked video card is able to better play games and our testing showed that in certain scenarios this video card can nearly double the performance of the GeForce GT 220. If you don’t use anti-aliasing and use resolutions of 1280×1024 or 1440×900 for gaming then this card is a very good choice. For those looking for a budget graphics card that is overclocking friendly, we found this retail boxed card to overclock very well. Overclocking core from 550MHz to 665MHz and the stream processors from 1340MHz to 1810MHz was a much higher overclock than what we expected, but we’ll take it and run. For a single slot graphics card these are very impressive numbers and the 400+ MHz increase we got on the stream processors is what really made a noticeable difference in games and applications. If you happen to be running applications like F@H you know how big of a performance difference this overclock will make!
