Wheel Stand Pro 1Hello to all the readers of Xtremehardware.com, today we will review a particular product, dedicated to those who have passion for driving simulations both for PC and for console. We are talking about the stand for wheels and pedals called Wheel Stand Pro. This particular stand is compatible with all Thrustmaster series T and with the Logitech G27 and Fanatec wheels; alternatively, TH8A gear shifter and T3PA pedal can be used without problems as in our test. This stand, completely made of metal, doesn’t occupy much space thanks to the possibility to be bent and this thing will satisfy those who have problems with complete cockpit because of the limited space. Let’s have a look to the Wheel Stand Pro and to the results of our test. We will also see its functions in a video so we suggest you to follow the whole review.

With the spread of Personal Computers, hardware and peripherals with increasingly aggressive look, the most courageous users have slowly taken the road of modding. Similarly to the  car tuning phenomenon, even the PCs are increasingly subject to more or less evident visual changes and this art form is taking more and more room. Some manufacturers, in order to go beyond the classical canons, try to impress the users with more and more interesting design products. Lamptron, a world-wide known company, is manifesting its interests in this area and, a few days ago, it  has started its own campaign pro-modding.  In this article we will describe you in detail this initiative and we will do it together with Luciel Campbell, responsible for European public relations in Lamptron and modder of international fame!

Today, November 14, we see the debut of the new Intel Sandy Bridge-E CPUs, based on the new Socket LGA 2011: they replace the previous LGA 1366 platforms. The architecture of these CPUs reflects what we saw about a year ago for the LGA 1155 CPUs, which marked an important milestone in the evolution of processors. Sandy Bridge LGA 1155, although belonging to the mid-range Intel platforms, has in effect meant the disappearance of the LGA 1156 CPUs, but also of the LGA 1366, going to compete with high-end CPUs such as hexa-core i7 980X and 990X, because of its excellent performance, both default and overclocked.
