Dino PC Angry Lizard 3770K review - powerful gaming PC


The Angry Lizard PC boasts a 3.5GHz Intel Core i7-3770K processor which has been overclocked to 4.6GHz. The Core i7 used here achieves higher performance through Hyperthreading, which doubles the number of processing threads which can be handled simultaneously, making eight virtual cores. 

This speed trick is reflected in a PCMark 7 score of 6930 points, placing it at the top of the performance chart for general application and entertainment use. This result was helped along by a fast 256GB Plextor M5S SSD. 


The processor is cooled by a large Xigmatek Dark Knight SD1283 Night Hawk Edition cooler which performed an adequate job, if with significant noise under load. Processor temperatures were a few degrees higher under our torture tests than the competition, but still within acceptable limits.

The graphics card is the most powerful single card we've seen recently in a gaming PC - a Gigabyte-branded Nvidia GeForce GTX580 Super Overclock Series which is cooled by a row of five small fans. This version of the card sees the GPU clock speed boosted from the standard 1137 up to 1202 MHz and comes with OC Guru software to help you tune it still further.

As you might hope, this card coupled with the powerful Core i7 CPU produces some awesome gaming performance.

Final Fantasy XIV in particular experiencing significant performance gains. However, in other cases, such as Alien vs Predator and Sniper Elite V2, much lower-cost systems managed to deliver superior performance.

The Angry Lizard includes a separate soundcard. The Asus Xonar DGX is a gaming sound card with a built-in headphone amp. It also accelerates up to 128 simultaneous sound effects which can create a more immersive sonic experience, while relieving the CPU of the burden of some of the sound processing.

A 24in LG 24EN43VS-B monitor is included, which features a fast TN panel, slim design and easy-access perpendicular connectors, including VGA, DVI and HDMI inputs.

Gigabyte GA-Z77X-D3H motherboard doesn't offer Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, so a plug-in Gigabyte Network card with 802.11n and Bluetooth has been included.

The system comes with a rather impressive-looking Saitek Cyborg V7 keyboard, featuring customisable illuminated keys with adjustable colours, and programmable keys. It's paired with a scary-looking Saitek Cyborg Rat 3 five-button mouse with four resolution settings up to 3500dpi, programmable buttons and customisable game profiles. Dual optical drives are provided for DVD burning and Blu-ray playback.

2020 Lincoln Aviator Preview

The 2020 Lincoln Aviator gives wing to Ford’s luxury-SUV ambitions, with sensational style and Lincoln’s first plug-in hybrid drivetrain.
The 2020 Lincoln Aviator gives strong evidence that Ford’s luxury bona fides don’t start and end with the full-size Navigator.
Revealed at the 2018 LA Auto Show, the 2020 Aviator leaps into the niche between the Navigator SUV and the Nautilus crossover, as it revives a nameplate Lincoln hasn’t touched since the 2006 model year.

Asus ZenBook 14 (UX433) Review

Asus has revamped the ZenBook line with a whole new design, including a lighter build, redesigned hinge, and a light-up numpad built right into the touch pad
Should I Buy The Asus ZenBook 14 UX433?
The ZenBook 14 is a very promising shakeup to the Asus laptop line. It’s smaller, lighter, and better looking than any of the previous models, without having to sacrifice either ports or powers. There aren't many laptops around that can offer you a 14in display in a body this compact while still giving you USB-A and HDMI ports, not to mention a Core i7 processor.
Unless you're an Excel addict you can probably safely ignore the glowing numpad - it's a fun gimmick, but most of us will probably forget it's even there, and without tactile feedback it's hardly a proper replacement for the keys. Still, this is a strong enough laptop elsewhere that it doesn't need that gimmick to get by, and there's plenty to recommend it otherwise.

2019 Mitsubishi Mirage Review

The 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage challenges the assumption that there are no bad new cars anymore.
The 2019 Mitsubishi Mirage is a subcompact car that prioritizes high fuel economy, a good factory warranty, and a low base price over comfort.
It’s offered in hatchback and G4 sedan bodies, and is available in base ES, SE, and GT trims. We’ve given the Mirage 3.3 out of 10, one of our lowest ratings for any new car.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Movie Review

Nth Time's a Charm

If you groaned at the thought of another "Spider-Man" movie, fear not because you weren't alone. How many times can one character be rebooted or reimagined before it becomes insufferable? Apparently we aren't there yet, because "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" is a welcome breath of fresh air.
Everyone's history with the movies about our favorite neighborhood webslinger differs. Sam Raimi's trilogy has its diehard fans (despite only producing one truly great film) and the Andrew Garfield-led "The Amazing Spider-Man" movies were cut short when they didn't meet expectations (the first one is good!). Last year, Jon Watts' "Spider-Man: Homecoming" found Tom Holland in the title role, providing a fun, well-rounded look at the character, which had been missing for a while.
