G.SKILL TridentZ 32GB 3200MHz DDR4 (F4-3200C15D-32GTZ) Memory Kit Review

Memory by stefan @ 2016-04-28 read/post comments()

The 32GB dual-channel Trident Z kit from G.SKILL is carefully binned to work at the rated 3200MHz and comes with a XMP 2.0 profile, which should be compatible with the latest high-end motherboards. While the Supermicro C7Z170-OCE board did not have any issues recognizing the profile (with a small voltage glitch which was setting the voltage at 1.45V instead of the rated 1.35V and needed to be set manually) and successfully booted the system, our previously tested BIOSTAR boards could not handle the 3200MHz profile, not matter the settings we have tried, so before purchasing such a high-speed kit, make sure your CPU/mobo combo can really handle it. read more

Edifier M1370BT 2.1 Bluetooth Speaker System Review

Audio/Speakers&Amps by stefan @ 2016-04-25 read/post comments()

Right after taking a look at the overall product dimensions and specifications, we lowered our expectations for the audition stage; after checking out some YouTube music videos though, the system did surprise us with the overall quality at decent volume levels, which would make it a very good replacement for TV sets which do have sub-par integrated speaker systems. read more

Others/Miscelleneous by stefan @ 2016-04-22 read/post comments()

Creative Sound BlasterX G5 7.1 HD Audio Portable Sound Card Review

Audio/Others by stefan @ 2016-04-20 read/post comments()

In order to check out the card performances, we have used the Rightmark Audio Analyzer utility (with all effects disabled, in order to get accurate results) which tells an interesting story! The included Cirrus Logic CS4398 DAC along with the Texas Instruments TPA6120A2 headphone amplifier are a very good combination since this new model passes over the Omni 5.1 with flying colors and we can say that it positions itself safely near the internal variants: Titanium HD and Sound Blaster ZxR. This is quite a great deal considering that it is not taking any more extra space inside our computer (some ITX builds do not allow installation of a dedicated sound card) and can be also switched back and forth… read more

TP-LINK AC2600 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router Review

Others/Networking Gear by stefan @ 2016-04-17 read/post comments()

TP-LINK did not go on the Sitecom route of using one of the latest OpenWrt builds (including customization in order to fit the new hardware features), but built on a proven stable software they have built for quite some time now and could have been also seen with their Touch P5 high-end router. Besides that, we are getting the latest MU-MIMO capabilities, a brand new chassis design and the Qualcomm dual-core IPQ8064 Internet processor at its heart, clocked at 1.4GHz. read more

Tt eSports Shock 3D 7.1 PC Gaming Headset Review

Audio/Others by stefan @ 2016-04-14 read/post comments()

As a mainstream-priced gaming headset, the Shock 3D 7.1 impressed us positively regarding the multitude of sound effects which can be obtained thanks to the C-Media Xear console and thanks to the thick cushion, large ear cups the headset does remain comfortable even during longer gaming sessions. Some of the effects and presets can be accessed right from the buttons placed on the left cup, while the volume wheel is quite large so we cannot miss it :). Please keep though in mind that since we are dealing with an USB-only headset, its usage environment is quite limited (only PCs), not being able to work on consoles and on OSX we are missing the software to back it up (so… read more
