PC Builders' Guide to Hardware Setup

Leave a Comment
Building a PC is an exciting project, and PC component makers do a pretty good job of making it as easy as possible. There are still a few precautions you need to take to avoid problems such as overheating, damage to PCI cards and running out of room to fit all of your components in the case. The most important component in the system is the CPU, and many common problems related to improper CPU installation can lead to overheating as well as permanent damage to your processor and possibly your motherboard.

Depending on the type of system you’re building, you may have to watch out for components that get in the way of installing other components. For example, if you’re building a high-end gaming PC, the heat spreader on your RAM can get in the way of your graphics card, if the slots are close together. Another problem to watch out for is blocking a PCI slot with a hard drive bay. In small cases, such as Micro ATX or Mini ATX cases, there isn’t always enough room to use all the hard drive compartments as well as each PCI slot.

Installing the Motherboard and CPU


The motherboard is the trickiest component to install because it requires the largest number of thumbscrews and fasteners. It’s also frustrating to have to remove it again if you accidentally install a component incorrectly, but sometimes you can’t avoid this outcome. The most important thing to remember when installing the motherboard is to use very little pressure when turning the thumbscrews. These screws are made from brass, which is softer than steel and allows the threading to become stripped more easily. You only need to tighten them with your fingers; using a screwdriver can easily strip them and possibly jar loose a component attached to the board.

Before installing the motherboard, it’s usually best to insert the CPU because many cases don’t provide enough headroom for this step when the motherboard is bolted down. There is only one way to insert the CPU into the socket, and you have to be careful not to bend the pins by forcing the processor down the wrong way. Intel CPUs don’t have exposed pins on the underside, but AMD chips do. If they become bent, the CPU will not function properly and may become overheated. Other problems that can cause overheating include dirt or debris in the socket, too much or too little thermal compound, and installing the cooling fan in the wrong direction. The fan should blow away from the CPU to ventilate the hot air out of the case.

RAM, Graphics Cards and PCI Slots


RAM is probably the simplest component to install because there is only one way to fit it in the slot. However, some motherboards require all four channels to be installed together in order for the RAM to work properly. Also, be sure to buy the right RAM for your board; DDR3 RAM is incompatible with DDR2 motherboard slots.

When installing the graphics card, you should always put it in the PCI slot nearest the CPU. This slot always has proper PCI Express x16 wiring, while the other slots may not receive the same amount of power. If your graphics card is high-end, it has a dedicated power input, and you must plug it directly into the power supply.

Otherwise, your computer won’t have video output and may not boot at all. The power supply is another simple component to install, and you just have to make sure that the fan points down or toward the outside of the case, depending on your system.

Dell XPS 15 Review

Leave a Comment
Dell’s contender in the high-end laptop market is the XPS 15. It represents the latest entry in their go-to series of mobile machines and boasts specs that are definitely buzzworthy. The powerhouse that Dell has put together is a very specific multi-media laptop that in some ways blows the competition out of the water. Its shortcomings are evident, none more than a hefty price point, but they are negligible if what you’re looking for is knock your socks off visuals. Here is a breakdown of what to expect from Dell’s XPS 15.



Hardware

The minimalistic design is a selling point, but more than just a pretty face. The laptop’s sturdy base is carbon fiber with an aluminum display encasement that make for a strong 14.6 by 10 by 0.7 inch chassis that weighs in at about 4.4 pounds. The HD display is made of Corning Gorilla Glass and rocks a 3200 by 1800 pixel resolution. These stats mean razor sharp HD picture quality and an easy to clean screen that features 10 point touch support. A bit of glare is evident but not excessive. Standard ports and sockets housed along the sides include four USB sockets, an HDMI port, mini-display port and a 3-in-1 media card reader. The internal HD webcam is standard, as are the twin fans in the rear that cool the processor and video cards respectively.

Power

Dell chose the Intel Cor
Battery Life
e i7-4702HQ quad-core processor for the XPS 15’s engine. It’s a strong chip that will have no problem running HD video and is fully capable of light video and photo editing. Those tasks are made easier by the impressive 16 gigabytes of DDR3L-1600 RAM. For a graphics card they chose Nvidia’s GeForce GT 750M, a reliable card boasting 2 gigabytes of GDDR5 memory. This powerful combination of chips will run most games, but at their lowest resolution. It is not so much a gaming laptop but a multi-media station. That being said, the XPS 15 scored incredibly well on industry benchmark tests like PCMark 7, wPrime and #DMark 11. These tests gauge a machine’s processing speed while multi-tasking several programs at once.

Connectivity

This iteration of Dell’s leading laptop falls behind in the connectivity department. The Intel Dual-Band Wireless-AC 7260 internet adapter’s performance in this machine has been the subject of scrutiny despite decent scores in connectivity tests. At least it supports Bluetooth 4.0 wireless devices.

Storage

The XPS 15 is available in different memory capacities, and it is this feature that most affects the price difference between models. The premium model comes in at about $2,399.99, and includes 512 gigabytes of Samsung mSATA solid state memory. Solid state memory is decidedly better than hard drive memory in speeds and durability. The base model is priced at $1,549.99 and includes a one terabyte hard drive.

Battery Life

This laptop’s battery life makes it worth a second look if some of it’s flaws have aroused your doubts. The 6-cell 91Wh battery will keep the equipment running for about seven hours of web surfing and typing, but that time drops down to around four to five hours during heavy workloads. Adjusting the screens brightness has a great effect on battery life.

Overall the XPS 15 by Dell is a strong machine if it matches your specific needs. It has enough punch to justify the hefty price tag, but certain flaws can get on the nerves of particular users. It seamlessly runs Windows 8.1 and high-definition video but can falter on the gaming side of things. The 1-year limited warranty is nothing to write home about but the image quality and processing speeds are dazzling.

ZTE Grand S II vs OnePlus One

Leave a Comment
So finally after a long wait, OnePlus One has finally arrived in India. It is available in 16 and 64 GB variants worldwide and here the 64 GB variant will go on offer. It is priced around 22K and offers top of the line specifications for that money. The manufacturers have been tagging this phone as the flagship killer as it offers high end specifications at a budget without compromising. That is why the tagline “Never Settle”.


On the other hand, ZTE has recently launched an impressive device called the Grand S II at a really attractive price of around 14K. For that you get quite powerful hardware with large full HD display and good built quality. While with this price tag, it is more of a product in Xiaomi Mi3’s class, which isn’t on sale anymore. We are pitting the device against OnePlus One because both of them offer similar display size and while the hardware is different, the difference is not very significant. The price of this device makes it an excellent value for money and thus a strong rival to the “flagship killer”. We put the two phablet against each other to figure out which one of them is a better deal.

Design

Both the devices come with 5.5 inch displays so it is inevitable that they have large sizes. The ZTE Grand S II has got a rectangular design with the edges rounded off. This device comes with a non-removable battery. There is metal on the back but it doesn’t cover all of the back as there is plastic on top and bottom. We can’t say that the design is impressive but then it isn’t bad at all. Moreover it isn’t very common to get this kind of build quality at this price.

The device, as we said already, is quite large. In fact it is bigger than the OnePlus One despite the same display size. It is 4 mm taller and 1 mm wider than the One. But at the same time it manages to be lighter and tips the scale at 150 Gms. Overall this device has got pretty good look & feel and it doesn’t feel cheap at all.

The One manages to look better than the ZTE with its simple design and impressive built quality. The bezels around the display are thin giving it a good size for such a large display. It takes a step away from the usual crop of metal or polycarbonate devices and comes with a sandstone finish on the back which feels really nice. On top of that, it also helps keep the scratches away and provides decent grip. It is slightly heavy weighing 162 Gms. This one also comes with non-removable battery like the ZTE Grand S II.

Display

Both these devices offer full HD displays measuring 5.5 inches. The size of these displays is excellent for people who like to watch a lot of videos on their mobile phone. The ZTE device has got an IPS LCD display which is pretty good. It offers good contrast ratio and brightness levels. The display on OnePlus One has got a LTPS LCD display measuring the same 5.5 inches. Both these displays have got pixel density of 401 ppi which is pretty crisp and it is not possible to notice individual pixels. The One’s display isn’t as bright as the display on ZTE. It is acceptable most of the times but it doesn’t serve very well under direct sunlight.

It is not only the brightness which is unimpressive. The contrast ratio isn’t very good either. There are many semi HD IPS displays that offer better contrast ratios. Thankfully the display comes with Gorilla Glass 3 protection to keep it safe from scratches. ZTE hasn’t said anything about display protection so it is not sure if it has got any protection.

Hardware

The Grand S II runs Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset which is quite powerful. It comes with 2 GB of RAM which is plenty to go with it. The OnePlus One runs slightly more powerful Snapdragon 801 chipset with the processor clock speed going up from 2.3 GHz on 800 to 2.5 GHz on 801. The difference isn’t very significant just like the numbers suggest. It comes with 3 GB DDR3 RAM to go with it so the OnePlus One has got a clear advantage here.

The Grand S II comes with 16 GB of internal storage and has got a micro SD card slot which can support up to 32 GB of memory. This should be plenty for most people. The One hasn’t got a micro SD card slot but then the Indian market has got the 64 GB variant which is really a lot. Connectivity options are almost similar with the One supporting 4G networks as well. Both the devices are powered by 3100 mAh battery and that gives impressive batter life to both the devices. The ZTE runs a custom android operating system and so does the One. Worldwide the OnePlus One runs Cyanogen mod but in India Micromax has got an agreement with CM so OnePlus will have to switch to a different operating system.

Camera

It is inevitable that manufacturers have to cut some corners in their rush to minimise the cost. The camera is one such area where they usually save money. This is the case with OnePlus One. While the camera is decent as it is a 13 megapixel Sony camera, the quality isn’t very impressive. Many devices in this bracket offer better cameras and this doesn’t go in line with their claim of it being the flagship killer. That said, the camera is still decent and can yield some nice shots in good light. The photos aren’t very well saturated though. The primary camera can record videos at high frame rates as well. The front camera has a 5 megapixel sensor and can shoot impressive selfies. The ZTE has also got a 13 megapixel primary camera which has got more or less the same performance with slightly better colour saturation.
