Intel DH61BE and DB65AL are two inexpensive LGA 1155 Sandy Bridge platform motherboards that recently became available in Pakistan. There are cheaper LGA 1155 motherboards available but these two motherboards stand out because they have support for the latest generation of peripheral device interfaces.
Computer Power Supply Units or PSUs convert mains Alternating Current (AC) to the Direct Current (DC) required by computer parts. Power supplies are typically rated in watts of power they can reliably supply to a computer. But these PSUs aren’t 100% efficient at their job. Some power is lost during the conversion from AC to DC. How efficient they are at their job determines how much electricity your computer uses and that is reflected in your monthly electricity bill.
The Korean electronics giant Samsung is looking to sell of its loss making Hard drive division. Samsung hopes to earn as much as $1.5 billion from the sale. It intends to invest the funds in other more profitable areas of its business.
The question of which Sandy Bridge parts support overclocking keeps popping up on forums so I thought it best to write out a post explaining this subject.
Computer enthusiasts in Pakistan have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of B3 revision sandy bridge motherboards. These boards are unaffected by the cougar point chipset bug that stalled sales of older socket 1155 motherboards. We are now starting to see these bug free mainboards in Pakistani stores.
Rs. 25,000 is a nice number for a new computer build. It’s affordable and yet not too little that you have to make huge compromises. With this budget in mind I set out to select components for a new system build that would serve a typical Pakistani user’s needs.
Hard Disk Drive (HDD) options can be quite bewildering for a computer system assembler. Even though there are only two major desktop hard drive brands available in Pakistan there is a lot of confusion among new system builders about what HDD to choose.
The two brands available in Pakistan are Seagate and Western Digital (WD). Seagate and WD 3.5″ internal HDDs are divided into three categories:
