Tek Spek
Chassis Airflow Cases >> Chassis Airflow The modern PC is potentially a mass of heat output and heat production hot spots. With CPUs rated at more than 100W of heat output, single graphics boards carrying similar ratings (and people want to run two!), multiple hard drives the norm, lots of memory and mainboards covered in heatpipes to combat toasty core logic and PWM circuits, a PC appreciably warming up a room when it’s working hard is no joke. Read Further >> Watercooling Coolers - Water >> Watercooling Watercooling for the PC has been around for years in some form or another, for at least as long as Scan have been in business, with basic physics defining why you want to use it. That means for air cooling, to cope with increasing temperature in the heatsink you need to move the air across it faster. That is why thermostatically controlled fans in your PC will turn faster the hotter something gets. Read Further >> AMD 64 Processors CPUs >> AMD 64 Processors This TekSpek explains what AMD’s AMD64 CPU instruction set architecture (ISA) is, shows what CPUs implement it from both AMD and Intel, and explains what software is available to run on those 64-bit consumer processors. Read Further >> AMD AM2 CPUs >> AMD AM2 The purpose This TekSpek quickly and easily explains AMD’s new processor socket and related technology to the reader, comparing it to AMD’s previous socket types. Read Further >> AMD FX Series CPUs >> AMD FX Series AMD has lifted the wraps off a new CPU architecture formerly known by the codename Bulldozer. Now released as the FX series, this TekSpek delves into the technology behind the new chip. Read Further >> AMD Phenom II CPUs >> AMD Phenom II This TekSpek explains the technology and market positioning behind AMD Phenom II CPUs. Read Further >> AMD Phenom X3 and X4 CPUs >> AMD Phenom X3 and X4 This TekSpek discusses AMD’s triple-core and quad-core processors, what they are, what the technology offers and the targeted market. Read Further >> AMD Richland APUs CPUs >> AMD Richland APUs While AMD has a proud history of developing benchmark-busting computer processors, there's no ignoring the fact that today's semiconductor giants are in a race to develop chips that are more efficient than ever before. Read Further >> AMD's six core CPUs CPUs >> AMD's six core CPUs The CPU (Central Processing Unit) is the brains of every computer, be it a large desktop or thin-and-light laptop. Read Further >> Architecture wars CPUs >> Architecture wars Intel’s Core 2 Duo is now slugging it out against AMD’s Socket AM2 Athlon 64s with DDR2 memory support. So what is next on the roadmap from the two chip-vending foes? Read Further >> Core 2 CPUs >> Core 2 There’s been a lot of hype about Intel’s Core 2 recently, even since they launched Core in fact. Words like Conroe, Badaxe and Allendale have been flying around. The bottom line is that Core 2 is the name of Intel’s latest line of CPUs, based on a new micro-architecture, designed for speed and efficiency. Read Further >> Cores CPUs >> Cores Over the course of the last year or so we’ve seen GHz become less of a focus when it comes to processors. Instead, we’re seeing a shift towards processors that do more work per clock, have larger caches, are more power efficient, and of course we’ve seen dual-core processors hit the market. So what is dual-core all about, and how does it weigh up compared to single-core? Read Further >> CPU Codes CPUs >> CPU Codes It’s been a long time since MHz were the only part of a CPU’s specification that concerned people. Manufacturers take different approaches to CPU design, even when using the same architecture. That means for example, at the same clock speed, an Intel and AMD processor will deliver different performance. Read Further >> Intel Branding Part I CPUs >> Intel Branding Part I Intel’s been on a mission of late. That mission revolves around grouping and standardising key technologies under various banners that are designed to ensure hardware compatibility and consumer ease of use. We’ll take a closer look at three such technologies that fall under the headings of Centrino, Viiv, and vPro, respectively. Read Further >> Intel Branding Part II CPUs >> Intel Branding Part II Intel has plans for a new brand structure that it claims will be less confusing for customers. In this TekSpek we'll take a look at Inte's proposals and speculate on its future line-up of processors. Read Further >> Intel Core 2 Duo (Conroe) CPUs >> Intel Core 2 Duo (Conroe) The purpose of this TekSpek is to delineate the publicly known features of Intel’s next generation desktop microarchitecture. Codenamed Conroe and officially titled Intel Core 2 Duo, it’s loosely based on the current mobile Yonah (Core Duo) underpinnings. Read Further >> Intel Core i7-4960X CPUs >> Intel Core i7-4960X Intel's consumer CPU focus is clearly on the 4th Generation Core Processor Family, codenamed Haswell, which launched in June of this year. Offering a smattering of extra performance over last-gen Ivy Bridge but with energy efficiency very much to the fore, you'd be forgiven for thinking the range-topping Core i7-4770K is the meatiest chip around. Read Further >> Intel Haswell CPUs >> Intel Haswell With PC and mobile converging quicker than ever before, Intel needs to reassert its presence in portable devices with an architecture that can scale across multiple platforms. That quest begins with the introduction of the fourth-generation Core processor family, codenamed Haswell. Read Further >> Intel Ivy Bridge Processors CPUs >> Intel Ivy Bridge Processors If there's one thing we should know about Intel processor technology, it's that it progresses like clockwork. We see a new fabrication process every two years (45nm in 2008, 32nm in 2010, 22nm in 2012, and so on) accompanied by a relentless Tick Tock release schedule. For those unfamiliar with Intel parlance, let's expand on the latter. Read Further >> Intel Lynnfield CPUs CPUs >> Intel Lynnfield CPUs Intel launched the consumer-oriented Core i7 900-series processors back in November 2008, and the chip giant has known that it's been on to a winner with Nehalem, the codename for the underlying architecture. This is the reason we've seen little innovation on Core i7, and pricing has remained relatively steady since launch. Read Further >> Intel Sandy Bridge CPUs >> Intel Sandy Bridge Chip giant Intel launched 29 new processors on January 2011. Split between mobile and desktop chips, this TekSpek examines the underlying architecture, known as Sandy Bridge, and evaluates where the new processors fit into Intel's consumer line-up. Read Further >> Intel Sandy Bridge Extreme CPUs >> Intel Sandy Bridge Extreme It's now three years since Intel released the Core i7 processor and associated X58 chipset, making up the LGA1366 platform. Then ushering in a new era for high-performance PCs and with numbers still to be bettered by AMD's rival Bulldozer chip, Intel's has the high-end desktop market sewn up for a while. Read Further >> Intel Xeon CPUs >> Intel Xeon Intel introduced the industry’s first quad-core processor for mainstream servers on November 14th, 2006. Codenamed Clovertown, the quad-core 5300-series Xeons are based on Intel’s advanced Core microarchitecture and can be implemented in both single- and dual-processor systems. Read Further >> Intel’s 45nm technology CPUs >> Intel’s 45nm technology This TekSpek discusses Intel’s 45nm process technology. What it is, what it provides, and how it benefits the consumer. Read Further >> Mainstream Haswell Processors CPUs >> Mainstream Haswell Processors Intel launched premium Haswell chips first, promising mainstream parts in the near future.That near future is now, September 1, as the chip giant is rolling out a comprehensive number of new chips in one fell swoop. Read Further >> New 4th Generation CPUs CPUs >> New 4th Generation CPUs Intel launched a bevy of Haswell Core processors last June. Presented in a LGA1150 form factor and therefore physically different to the LGA1155 Ivy Bridge processors of the year before, new chipsets were also launched to support these new chips. Read Further >> Overclocking Intel Sandy Bridge CPUs CPUs >> Overclocking Intel Sandy Bridge CPUs Overclocking, a term which you've probably heard used by enthusiasts and high-end system builders, involves running a hardware component at a greater speed than it was originally designed for. See how this can be achieved on the latest Sandy Bridge CPUs from Intel. Read Further >> Firewire Firewire >> Firewire You've probably read the USB Tekspek, and perhaps your intrigue, or product interest, has lead you to look up Firewire as well. The two are similar in some respects, particularly some of the products that use the two technologies. However, Firewire has its differences, which means it has both benefits and drawback when compared to USB. This Tekspek will look at Firewire and also look at it with respect to USB. Read Further >> CUDA Technology GPU - Graphics >> CUDA Technology CUDA technology is the world’s only C language environment that enables programmers and developers to write software to solve complex computational problems in a fraction of the time by tapping into the many-core parallel processing power of GPUs. Read Further >> GPU GPU - Graphics >> GPU Explaining how a modern GPU works in completeness would take a book. Or two. Per class of chip. Per vendor. They’re extraordinarily complex pieces of engineering and production, and the end result contains more transistors than multiple modern x86 processors. Read Further >> GPU Antialiasing GPU - Graphics >> GPU Antialiasing This TekSpek will assume you know the affects of applying a level of anti-aliasing (AA) on your 3D accelerator, be it via the driver control panel or via a control in your game. We assume you know the effect it has on image quality, so you can think about a before and after scenario. So this TekSpek isn’t about explaining what it does as such, although it will, it’s about explaining the how and why. Read Further >> Multi-GPUs GPU - Graphics >> Multi-GPUs If you’re the least bit interested in graphics cards, we’re sure that you’ve heard the terms SLI and CrossFire bandied about recently. Touted as a means of achieving maximum 3D performance by, effectively, using two or more graphics cards in tandem, multi-GPU technology is here to stay. With that in mind, let’s take a closer look SLI and CrossFire; the two competing multi-GPU solutions from NVIDIA and ATI Technologies, respectively. Read Further >> Overclocking GPU - Graphics >> Overclocking This TekSpek explains why you’d want to overclock your graphics board, the risks in doing so and how you can go about doing it. Read Further >> PCI Express GPU - Graphics >> PCI Express A motherboard’s main job is to act as a conduit between the various hardware elements that make up a PC. It needs to be able to link the desired CPU(s), system memory, graphics card, hard drive(s), and add-in cards and enable them to work in harmony. Read Further >> ESD Guides >> ESD We’ve all been victims of static electricity at some point. Perhaps somebody’s used a balloon to make your hair stand on end, or you’ve walked across the office and been ‘shocked’ by a metal door knob? That’s electrostatic discharge at work. Read Further >> Green computing at home Guides >> Green computing at home This TekSpek explains what Green Computing is, what it means to the consumer, and how energy-efficient components can be beneficial in the home. Read Further >> Intel Green Computing Guides >> Intel Green Computing Green is one of the biggest buzz words these days, and even computer manufacturers are getting involved in trying to be kinder to the environment. While the first thing that may spring to mind when you think of 'green computing' is simply using less electricity, there's a lot more to it than that. Read Further >> Updating Drivers Guides >> Updating Drivers Updating drivers can sometimes be a bit of a gamble. Will the drivers come with an installer? Will you need to uninstall the old drivers first? Many drivers these days do come with an installer, which simplifies the process dramatically. Read Further >> Video Editing Guides >> Video Editing You’d be right to think that it’s possible to carry out basic video editing on any modern PC running Windows XP - straight out of the box. XP includes the Windows Movie Maker video-editing program and, although it lacks frills, it does what it does quite well. Read Further >> DDR / DDR2 Memory >> DDR / DDR2 When looking to upgrade your PC, RAM is one of the first places to look. More RAM reduces the amount the page file is used, speeding up programs and allowing you to run more applications simultaneously Read Further >> DDR3 Memory >> DDR3 This TekSpek explains what DDR3 is, how it works, where you’ll find it, and what it means to the consumer. Read Further >> DVI/HDMI/HDCP Monitors >> DVI/HDMI/HDCP There’s a lot more to High Definition than just having the ability to run your screen at the right resolution. With more than one type of connection available, and the thorny subject of signal encryption to contend with, just because your monitor and graphics are capable of 1,920 x 1,080 or better does not necessarily mean they will be able to display HDTV in all its glory. Read Further >> Chipsets Motherboards >> Chipsets What makes a PC tick? Is it the processor, graphics card, RAM, or a plethora of other peripherals. It’s all those and more, but none would be much use without a means of connecting said components in an efficient manner. That’s where your humble motherboard comes in. Its job is to ensure that all devices can communicate correctly, and the beating heart of any motherboard is the chipset it’s based upon. Read Further >> How to upgrade your BIOS Motherboards >> How to upgrade your BIOS This How-2 Guide explains what BIOS is and how it can be upgraded to the latest revision. BIOS, which stands for Basic Input/Output System, is a integral software program that comes pre-loaded with your computer. Its purpose is to initially identify computer hardware and prepare the system to run other software such as operating systems. Read Further >> System Noise Reduction Sound >> System Noise Reduction Anybody who has been near their share of computer systems will appreciate that not all systems make the same amount of noise. There are a number of reasons for why this is so. Firstly, a computer makes noise for different reasons. Generally, anything mechanical is going to make noise. Read Further >>

Rated 5 out of 5 by Does what it says on the tin Great product at a great price. Simple and quick to use. 18 May 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Overheating Killed Had issues running my PC fan noise was louder than usual, during kids game sessions and watching video the PC would crash. After confirming drivers were all up-to-date and checking system health decided the issue was likely due to overheating. Visual inspection of processor and graphics card chips confirmed dry heat sink compound. The products CPU cleaner works well and smells nice, the thermal compound has cured the overheating and the PC appears to be as good as new only time will tell how long it lasts before it needs to be replaced. 19 August 2014
