Corsair GS800 Review reported at 12:24 PM
category: Power Supplies     website: XSreviews.co.uk
Article Quote:
The added lighting effects are pretty nice – even if the adjustment button is a bit close to the power switch – and the build quality feels solid too. On top of this, it’s pretty quiet, since the fan only engages when necessary. More than happy to recommend this unit for mid-range enthusiasts and gamers. Just a bit of a shame it’s not modular.

category: Power Supplies     website: PC Perspective
Article Quote:
Thermaltake's new Dr. Power II Universal ATX Power Supply Tester is a great little tool that is quick and easy to use to check if a PC power supply is operating normally and delivering all the voltages it is supposed to within spec. It also confirms that the PG (Power Good) signal timing is happening within the recommended guidelines.

Crucial v4 Review reported at 12:17 PM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: Pro-Clockers.com
Article Quote:
"The v4 from Crucial is somewhat of a throwback of solid state drives before 2011 and was based on the SATA II controller. The numbers presented by the drive are typical of those used to take advantage the SATA II controller. At 230/175 MB/s read and writes, you will see vast improvements in every area of computing over a mechanical drive and a cut in boot-up time to about half. The v4 is new to the Crucial product line so reliability is still up in the air but if it is anything like the m4 there are no worries."

Seasonic X-460 Review reported at 12:05 PM
category: Power Supplies     website: PC Stats
Article Quote:
In and of itself, Seasonic have manufactured a very satisfying PSU that's evident the moment you lift it out of the box. The modular cables are sufficient for its power output, the build quality is enviable and it produces no noise from fans or humming capacitors. Retailing for about $160CDN ($160USD, £70 GBP), the Seasonic X-460 Fanless (SS-460FL) isn't cheap, but is well built, stable and efficient. It's a harder point to recommend or not, I think in this case a fanless power supply is one component best selected by DIY computer builders who know enough to answer that question themselves.

ASRock Fatal1ty X79 Champion Review reported at 11:58 AM
category: Socket 2011 Motherboards     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
It's unfortunate to have run into the compatibility and Turbo issues I noticed, but these should be fairly easy to fix with a BIOS update, one that can even be downloaded while sitting inside the BIOS after POST! I will be working with ASRock to make sure these few outstanding issues are resolved. As for a product that has only been on the market for a couple of months, this is par for the course for early adoption of high-end hardware. Considering I had been using an ASUS P9X79 Deluxe for many months now, and that board sells in retail for the same cost as the ASRock Fatal1ty X79 Champion, ASRock really has a winner here if they crush the current BIOS problems. Don't forget to hit us up on the forums, and tell us what YOU think!

Azza Genesis 9000 Review reported at 11:50 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: Overclockers Club
Article Quote:
However, even though it has its faults, this is still one heck of a case. The large size allows for easy installation of nearly any hardware you can buy. The removable motherboard tray is well designed, easy to use, and allows for orienting the board whichever way you desire. The cooling, though a bit loud, is top-notch in almost every category and will definitely keep your hardware cool even under the most intense stress. There aren't many cases on the market with this kind of cooling delivered from the factory nor many that can house 480mm radiators without any modification at all. With a competitive price and outrageous styling the AZZA Genesis 9000 is definitely worth your consideration.
