ADATA is lighting up the depths of our cases (if we haven’t done so already) with their new XPG Dazzle modules. The new modules are a part of their Xtreme Performance Gear (XPG) line and are clearly targeted at the gaming segment if the PC community.
In recent years there’s been a growing trend in the GPU segment of hardware for cards to have two BIOS ROMs. The idea is that if something were to happen to a BIOS, whether it becomes corrupted, updated to an unstable version, or if the card “bricks” from overclocking, that there’s another BIOS that can get the card working again. Its a great feature for overclockers and others who just like to tinker.
Beside’s your monitor, your keyboard is probably the most used peripheral. You should want the Rolls Royce of keyboards. Easy to use, comfortable, luxurious, and full of options. When you consider how much time we spend typing it’s easy to see why a great keyboard is a worth while investment. When choosing a keyboard many factors come into play. Think about it, you’ll be spending thousands of hours sitting behind the keyboard. It should feel and work flawlessly. Does the keyboard have extra features that you can use? Think about size, what’s the keyboard will take up desk space is it massive or compact, does it include a number pad? Above all else consider comfort, a keyboard should always be comfortable. Especially during extended use.
We all love a good set of headphones. They let us connect with our favorite music and disconnect with all of the aggravation of the outside world. And with the rise of artist-backed, premium cans, it might seem like everybody and their auntie will try to make a decent set, with emphasis on the trying part. While that’s great, us common folk might not ever get a chance to try them since they can be rather overpriced. Thankfully, there are companies that produce solid headphones at prices that don’t include paying-for-rapper’s-lifestyles markups. We’re taking a look at one such headset today, the Aerial7 DIY Tank.
We’ve all seen the those incredibly cheesy, late night commercials where people have a computer that’s “running slow”. By “running slow” the commentator really means that they have a computer that’s turned around backwards and and not plugged in and obviously the screen image is nothing more than terrible looking post-production. Somehow, all of these late night spots came across the late and once great G4 (we’re not going to comment anymore on that station) By some nonsensical hocus-pocus, they act like there’s a magic site you can go to that will turn a 5 year old computer into a brand new state of the art machine. As much as we think that isn’t true and can’t possibly happen, what if it could? Iolo thinks that it can and have a program that they claim can do it called System Mechanic.
