HOTHARDWARE HAS A MASSIVE gaming machine that’ll make mostgamers drool over - the Dell XPS 730 H2C. It’s an oh-so-powerful machine withdual-dual graphics cards under its bonnet and an extremely expensive CPU topower it all. Sure, you might be disappointed with “just” 2GB of DDR3 RAM, butthat’s about the weakest link in the whole setup. Lest we forget, the XPS 730ships with an integrated watercooling system. Its godlike features did leave animpression on the review crew (and wallet). Catch ithere.
The Lenovo M57p Eco ultra small computer has some nifty entrails, but islacking in the “looks” department. The Eco in the name purports to its EPEATGold and GreenGuard Air Emissions Quality certifications. The fact that itsrunning an E8400 and drawing just 74W at load is simply jawdropping. AlthoughLenovo has cut the umbilical cord with the original IBM designs,here’san article to prove that they Big Red has something up its sleeve.
Sparkle is very much alive and kicking – and they’ve just launched a new9600GT that InsideHW was nice enough to review for everyone to read. The SparkleCalibre 9600GT comes factory OC’d at 700MHz (a popular choice with this GeForcechip), and performs as you’d expect. The price doesn’t seem too steep for anOC’d 9600GT, although Nebojsa does think so. Read about ithere.
OCC is testing ThermalTake’s new VH6000BWS Armor+ case. This big box istargeting quad-core graphics and extreme cooling requirements, although the latter is mostly a DIY job - you can pull out the HDD cages to install additionalcooling, for example, but you'll have to setup your own coolers. Apart from thebiggie 230mm fan, Thermaltake has left a lot of fan mounting points free for youto do as you will –keep the price lower in the process. Solid stuff, it seems.Read ithere.
Hilbert is laying his hands on BFG’s latest PSU, the ES Series 800watter.It’s a sensible PSU if there is such a thing – throwing LEDs and modularity outthe window – and sticking to the basics: power and performance. By the end ofthe review, Hilbert is really raving about how good a thing BFG has. It takesquite a bit to achieve this...clickethhere, my son.
If you’re into heavy Torrenting this review is for you. Custom PC is testingthe Emprex NSD-100 P2P Download Engine. At a paltry £45.81, this little enginecan manage up to 20 torrents while you get your beauty sleep. It’s downside isreally not having an integrated HD or NAS feature, but you can plug an externalHD to it. Simple enough, it seems, but there’s better out there, thinks Kevin.
