Some weeks back I looked at an mATX AMD 785G economy motherboard, supporting AM3 processors with DDR3 memory. It was a very impressive board with a very impressive price. Performance and stability easily met my expectations, and it will be the standard for any other 785G board that I get my grubby little hands on. Today I will be looking at a full ATX 785G motherboard by Asus, the M4A785TD-V EVO. It is definitely nicer than the mATX board I just mentioned, with much nicer cooling and CrossfireX support. It supports DDR3-1800 memory (requiring CPU overclocking). All this at a surprisingly economical price. Read on to check out the Asus M4A785TD-V EVO!
The In Win AMMO has some very unique features, particularly its use of RFID technology and encryption. Looking for something out of the ordinary, durable, and sleek for your drive enclosure? The AMMO might be just the thing for you.
It has taken a bit longer than we all had hoped, but last week, NVIDIA gathered members of press together to dive deep into its upcoming Fermi architecture, where it divulged all the features that are set to give AMD a run for its money. In addition, the company also discussed PhysX, GPU Compute, developer relations and a lot more.
It’s hard to tell it from the reviews we have done in the past, but our friends over at Cooler Master make more than cases. In fact, they have a wide range of products including a variety of power supplies. For the past year, I have been using their UCP 1100w in my own rig and have been very happy with it. Today we are going to take a look at their new 850 watt Silent Pro M and see if it lives up to the Cooler Master name.

Hyperthreads, multi-core, full load, and stability are just a few of the words and phrases that accompany today’s most powerful Intel Core i7 and AMD Phenom II Processors. These chips are calculating and execution monsters that are capable of crashing through every performance record. However, you’re not going to smash through any records if you connect some sheepish power supply to your new state of the art ninja killing system. That’s why you’ll need a very formidable PSU like the Corsair HX750W Professional Series ATX Power Supply. Let’s check this beast out!
Good day to you, loyal readers. I come to you on this fine day bearing gold. 80 Plus Gold, that is. Today’s review sample is the Enermax Modu87+ 700 watt unit, and the third Gold certified unit to ever be tested here at the site. Let’s see if it lives up to expectations.
Dropping to 32nm means a smaller overall die, allowing Intel to fit more transistors onto the chip, ultimately making it run faster, cooler and with more features while requiring less power to operate. For desktop users / overclockers, this means lower chips and hopefully higher clock speeds when pushed to the limit. In mobile applications, we can expect better battery life without sacrificing performance.
Cooler Master has taken an already excellent case in the form of the HAF 932 and done some modifications to it to provide an AMD Edition of the case. The red color and the Dragon in the window make the case fit the theme really well. This case has plenty of room for HDDs and ODDs with up to 12 drives installed in the case. The Cooler Master HAF 932 has plenty of fans with two 230mm fans and a 140mm fan installed out of the box but plenty of room for more fans if needed. One concern with the AMD Edition HAF 932 Limited Edition is the actual uniqueness of the case as it seems to be available on Newegg for $160. Nevertheless the case is an excellent fusion of design and function and doesn’t cost a pretty penny to purchase for a full-tower case. This is Solid Hot Product for those looking for a modded system in the AMD color and flavor.
The GF100 (Graphics Fermi) series of video solutions will host many new technological features as well as many proven. The new GT100 series of GPUs will still support CUDA, DirectCompute, CUDA C++, OpenCL, PhysX and Optix Ray Tracing but the compute engine will be more streamlined and able to process commands more efficiently. With the new design NVIDIA is projecting the “Fermi ” GPU will provide improved geometric realism, increased image quality and provide revolutionary GPU compute for gaming and will consist of:

For many, the term “lifestyle” is as synonymous with “pricey,” just as with similar phrases “cool” or “designer.” Anyone who’s ever wandered into a Brookstone store, browsed Sharper Image or dug into their SkyMall catalogue while flying can tell you that, while this lifestyle stuff is cool, it’s also pretty expensive and, for many, out of reach. Thankfully Edifier, a Canada-based lifestyle audio company, is trying to change that.
