Internet Explorer 11 isnt terrible! In fact, if youve got a Windows tablet and have bought into the whole Metro sorry, Modern interface, its probably the best touch-based browser you can use.

The included TrueImage HD software makes migration easier than before, especially for less experienced users.

We've spent pretty much all our free time this week using the Intel NUC Kit D54250WYK and if you couldn't tell from our review, we love the new design and the Intel 4th Generation Core i5-4250U Haswell processor that powers it. In our review we showed you the general performance of the system running at stock speeds. The one question that we didn't answer at that time is how it performs when overclocked. There aren't too many things that you can overclock on the NUC since the CPU multiplier and bus speeds are locked down, but we can overclock the DDR3 memory. In the past overclocking the memory clock frequency has yielded some pretty good results for memory bandwidth limited applications and gaming benchmarks. Read on to see how the Intel NUC Kit D54250WYK performs with 1866MHz memory!

When it comes to power supplies we know that the 80 PLUS certifications are very important. The certification lets consumers know how efficient the power supply they are purchasing is. Currently the highest certification in the US is 80 PLUS Platinum, which offers 92% efficiency at 50% load and 89% efficiency at 100% load. Today we will be taking a look at one such 80 PLUS Platinum certified power supply in Rosewill's Tachyon 750W unit.

Today we test the new ASRock Z87 Extreme4 Intel LGA 1150 motherboard at .
It is based on the Intel Z87 chipset and offers a high-quality solution for current 1150-pin Haswell processors like the Intel Core i7-4770K, Intel Core i5-4570 or the Intel Core i5-4670K, which we have used to test and overclock this motherboard.
Surely only a few motherboards can compete with the recently tested ASRock Z87M OC Formula when overclocking, but the basic equipment of the ASRock Extreme series sets definitely new standards.
The ASRock Z87 Extreme4 offers for example a total of five PCI Express slots, up to nine USB3.0 ports, eight SATA3 ports, eSATA3, DisplayPort, 15-pin D-Sub, DVI-D, HDMI out, HDMI in and purity sound with digital sound output over an optical S/PDIF output.
We may be curious to see all results of the ASRock Z87 Extreme4 in the following review.

Earlier this week, we posted a news item about an article written by Ryan Shrout over at PC Perspective. In the article, Ryan revealed some problems with using a Radeon CrossFire multi-GPU setups and multiple displays.
I noticed that many folks reacted to our news item by asking why this story matters, given the known issues with CrossFire that have persisted literally for years. I have been looking into these things for myself, and I think I can explain.
