In other news about Intel we are now hearing that Devil’s Canyon, Intel’s Haswell refresh, will come clocked at 4GHz stock with turbo speeds of up to 4.4GHz. This stock speed is unheard of from Intel who has stayed away from pushing the stock speeds of their enthusiast CPUs. This step up is certainly going to be welcomed by the enthusiast and overclocking community who have been salivating over the new Z97 chipset and the feature packed motherboards that have been trickling out.

Raijintek Nemesis CPU Cooler Review

Today I had the chance to finally put the Raijintek Nemesis CPU cooler through its paces.  This is currently the largest cooler offered by Raijintek, and among the largest currently on the market.  We’ll be comparing it to the previous three offerings from Raijintek: the low-profile Pallas, the mid-sized Themis Evo, and the Ereboss tower cooler.  The Nemesis has quite a bit of size difference over its nearest cousin the Ereboss.  We’ll see if that additional heat dissipation area will translate to better performance.

A team of Japanese researchers from Chuo University in Tokyo said they have solved one of the biggest problems that still limits the development of solid-state drives. Specifically, with currently available SSD technology it is not possible to directly write the data to the NAND chips over other data. Instead, data is written to the free part of the SSD drive, while old data is formatted. This way of operation eventually leads to fragmentation of data and reduces the performance and life-cycle of SSD drive.

Raijintek Ereboss CPU Cooler Review

Today we are continuing our testing of the primary line of CPU coolers from Raijintek.  In previous reviews we’ve already covered the low-profile Pallas and the smaller tower cooler dubbed the Themis Evo.  Both of these coolers performed well, with the Pallas being our favorite thus far.  We’ve been testing these coolers in order of size, working our way up to their monster cooler, the Nemesis.  Today we look at the third out of four samples sent to us for testing, the Ereboss.

Raijintek Themis EVO CPU Cooler Review

Last week we brought you a review of the Pallas low-profile CPU cooler from a new company called Raijintek.  We put it through our torture test and we were actually surprised at how well the little cooler did.  With plenty of clearance, a beautiful finish, a quiet fan and an affordable price, the Pallas passed with flying colors and earned itself the Editor’s Choice award.  Today we have the next installment in our series Raijintek CPU cooler reviews: the Themis Evo.

In the gaming world there are few things as annoying as not having the right tools to keep up in your favorite game. Just ask any gamer about trying to play with a bad internet or LAN connection, or a slow keyboard or a buggy mouse and you will get an earful. Because of this an entire new industry sprang up a few years ago just to address this. This is the eSports industry and it is a monster. Right now we have a ton of items that are listed as “for gamers”, but the question is: what is really a gaming peripheral and what is not. In most people’s minds a gaming peripheral should be high-end in terms of performance and build quality. It should have features that benefit gaming in multiple ways while having a sense of style and customization. Today we check out a peripheral from Genius named DeathTaker that is allegedly meant just for gaming. Let’s find out if it really deserves the name.

PC enclosure reviews are not exactly the most exciting things on the internet. In far too many cases (no pun intended… ok well maybe) we find that the differences between one company and another is wholly cosmetic and are not much more than fancy side panels and extra plastic to give the case a different shape. This is not to say that there is no innovation in the market, just that really innovative features and designs are not all that common. One company that has recently stood out is In Win. Over the last few months In Win has released some very novel and innovative cases. These have not been your standard “hey I have more HDD bays and fans” type of innovations, but actually new and innovative designs and even materials (like a glass case). Today we are taking a look at one of them, the In Win 901. This is a very interesting SFF case that just might be one of the coolest enclosure designs we have seen in a very long time.

Incredibly fast graphene chips from IBM

IBM's Research Laboratory achieved a great progress in the development of graphene microchip. Their engineers have managed to create an integrated chip of graphene instead of silicon, which shows several times better performance than all previous graphene chips. This big jump occurred because of the discovery of methods of depositing graphene on a substrate, which is stacked in a way that integrated circuits are not damaged, which was not possible until now.
