How to Automatically Backup Your Gmail Attachments With IFTTT @ Howtogeek
When it comes to getting things done quickly, automation is the name of the game. Weve looked at IFTTT before, and a new batch of updates has introduced a number of options that can be used to automatically do things with files that are sent to your Gmail address. What could this be used for? Well the most obvious starting point is to simply create a backup of any files that you receive via email. This is useful if you find that you often reach the size limit for your inbox as it enables you to delete emails without having to worry about losing the associated files. Start by paying a visit to the IFTTT website and then either sign into an existing account or create a new one.

For quite a while now ASUS’s Republic of Gamers (ROG) motherboards have been the top of the line motherboards which offer very high-end and unique hardware and software features. For this reason they are a top choice of many enthusiasts and gamers. The one thing that keeps these boards out of the hands of many people is the price tag. The top of the line Maximus VI Extreme is currently selling for $399.99, which is quite a lot to just pay for a motherboard. ASUS knows that and wanted to give people the chance to get their hands on a Republic of Gamers board. That is where the Maximus VI Hero comes in, at just $229.99 it will still give you many of the same ROG features without some of the more “Extreme” ones that you may not use. This motherboard is designed for Intel’s latest 4th generation Haswell Core processors using the LGA1150 socket. Read on as we take this motherboard for a spin and see what all it has to offer.

ounded in 2008, Zowie Gaming Gear were originated on the principle of creating core gaming peripherals which allow gamers to maximise competitiveness no matter their skill level. Billing themselves as a free-thinking company not bound by shareholders or market conventions, they haven’t been concerned by market fads or the latest flavour-of-the-month technology. Their designs are typically minimalist, eschewing unnecessary features such as lighting and over-elaborate layouts in favour of being the best at helping you to play games.

The Acer Aspire R7-571-6858 has an innovative hinge mechanism, but the overall design is dragged down by the decision to swap the touchpad and keyboard, resulting in a design that is awkward at best.

I have a confession to make. Despite being a huge fan of Codemasters’ racing titles, the original GRID (aka: Race Driver: GRID) is one I skipped over – but there’s no good reason for it. I likely had other games hogging my attention at the time, because I did have some interest in it – I even implemented the game into our graphics card testing suite for about a year. Since the game’s launch, I’ve lightly regretted not giving it a fair go, but found myself unable to dedicate time to go back to it.

Antec released many new PSUs, including the VP550F we will test in today's review. The unit belongs to the mainstream category and is made by Delta, so we have high expectations of it considering that the older VP550 we tested a while ago, managed to score a good high price/performance ratio.

Ivy Bridge-E to use solder instead of paste? If you were disappointed by the overclocking ability of the Intel’s Ivy Bridge and their latest architecture Haswell, you might want to check these pictures out.
User “Toppc” on the Taiwanese forum Coolaler is apparently in possession of at least one Ivy Bridge-E Core i7 4960x, and has taken the liberty of delidding it for his fellow members. This is done by extreme overclockers to replace the paste-type thermal interface material began using when manufacturing Ivy Bridge, and continuing with Haswell. One CPUs prior to these, solder was used between the CPU and the heat spreader (the part that actually makes contact with the heatsink).

Now that Intel's 4th-generation Core processors are flowing in the market, all your favorite boutique builders are churning out new systems based around those Haswell chips. The new Intel processors require a new socket (LGA 1150), and the associated motherboards have the new Z87 chipset. If you're as excited as we are to see how Haswell fares, stick around--there's a lot of good stuff coming down the pike.
One of our first Haswell-based system is the CyberPowerPC Gamer Xtreme 5200, which comes in a surprisingly subdued mid-tower chassis that belies the powerful components inside. It's hard to say what CyberPowerPC's going for aesthetically here, but it's easy to see that this machine is fully loaded.

Toshiba is pitting its Satellite C series of laptops as its most affordable touchscreen laptops to date. While the C50 lacks some of the more advanced multimedia features of the company's recently revealed Satellite S, L and P models, the sub-Ł300 asking price is the real draw here.

For those of you who aren't that familiar with Noctua, they are an Austrian company that has been in the business of providing elite cooling solutions since 2005. I would say that they are best known for their high-performance / low-noise CPU coolers, but they obviously also sell their unique cooling fans separately.
On hand for this roundup we have three 120mm fans and three 140mm fans. The specific models include the NF-S12A FLX, NF-S12A ULN, NF-S12A PWM, NF-A14 FLX, NF-A14 ULN, and NF-A15 PWM.

Cooler Master has quietly been chipping away on their new line of products, most notably those multifaceted devices ready for PC and console systems. Computer hardware and accessories are still the main priority, and Cooler Master are always building, always improving on their designs.
The new Cooler Master Storm Havoc gaming mouse is the prime example. The best way to describe it is a meld between the Cooler Master Storm Sentinel Advance II and the Cooler Master Storm Recon. Sporting the same 8200 DPI laser sensor as the Advance II and a modified frame of the Recon, we will see if the Amazon priced $54.99 Havoc brings new features and additions to the table.

It’s been just about two years since Intel launched 3rd Generation Ivy Bridge processors which you may recall offers built-in features that make surprisingly fast work of transcoding, converting video, or managing audio projects with supporting software titles. And of course, Hyper-Threading assists in nearly doubling the work of the physical cores. Ivy Bridge itself is a relatively cool, smooth operating processor when used at stock frequencies with after market cooling. The only time Ivy Bridge upsets users is when overclocking. Once you push past 4.5GHz, CPU coolers struggle to keep the little chip from becoming a frying pan. This is why so many enthusiasts still love the 2nd Gen Core i7-2500/2600/2700 K-SKU series if they ware looking for top clocks.
A couple weeks ago, Intel released their 4th Generation Haswell processor series. It continues to offer every feature but is architecturally different from Ivy Bridge. All the marketing data and other laboratory testing point to improved performance all around including new integrated Intel “Iris” HD graphics processing designed for supporting 4K displays. But does Haswell offer a new processor experience? Is Iris the boost needed to to move to 4K displays? And finally, is Haswell thermal friendly enough to overclock? These questions are what I’ve been taking the time to answer.

Inside June we received over a dozen of emails by some readers asking about which portable speaker we think it would be best for them to purchase in order to accompany them in their summer vacations. Now of course some of you asked about portable speakers with superior audio quality and plenty of volume while others chose to ask for something really small in both size and weight with good battery life. As you all know the answer is not a simple one and normally large portable speakers produce better and more powerful audio compared to smaller ones while at the same time they also feature larger rechargeable battery packs. If however there's one thing Iâ€™ve learned over the years using and testing countless electronics is that there are always exceptions (never say never basically) and the Cube high performance portable speaker by NuForce seems to have what it takes to be part of that small club.

Reading our review of the Core i7-4770K Haswell chip tells you that Intel's latest processor technology is now more focussed on mobile usage than for desktops. That said, Haswell remains a very competent platform on which to base a new PC build.
Intel has made numerous changes to the fourth-generation Core processor, including a move to a newer socket, but one fact remains the same: Haswell requires dual-channel DDR3 memory. It is this system RAM that also feeds the upgraded integrated graphics, so running faster memory is likely to pay larger dividends than on last-generation Ivy Bridge.
It's no surprise, then, that all major DDR3 companies have been using Haswell as the technological impetus for driving sales. The new chip's memory controller scales better than ever before, evidenced by the current frequency world record standing well in excess of 4,000MHz.

Corsair is mostly known as the one of the top memory manufacturers for desktop and laptops but in recent years; they’ve made some bold business decisions and entered some very rapidly growing segments like peripherals, storage, cooling and cases. All this diversity has not slowed them at all and neither their products seems to have any adverse effect of the extra work load. Corsair has excelled in the all these markets that they entered in the recent years. Now, they are not just known for their memory kits but they are also known for their feature-rich and high quality peripherals, fast and reliable SSDs along with coolers and cases which boost nothing but performance and functionality.
Today, we’ll be taking a detailed look at their new Vengeance M65 gaming mouse which is specifically designed for FPS games. The M65 is actually an enhanced version of the M60 mouse from early 2012. The major improvements include highly acclaimed Avago ADNS-9800 LaserStream gaming sensor which provides this mouse with 8200 DPI as compared to 5700 DPI of M60. Furthermore, the M65 comes in several colors like the Arctic White, Gun Metal Black and Military Green.
