NZXT Switch 810 Special Edition Review reported at 11:57 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
It’s easy to see why the original 810 switch was worthy of one our award in our in depth review from February, and our opinions of it haven’t dwindled one little bit since then either, this is still one of the finest examples of PC chassis engineering and design on the market and a case that I can see still selling well for years to come thanks to its expansive list of support for components old, new and especially products that are at the bleeding edge of PC technology, from multi GPU setups, water cooling, modifications and top of the range motherboards.

Corsair Neutron GTX Review reported at 11:55 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: XSreviews.co.uk
Article Quote:
The Corsair Neutron GTX is a top-tier SSD that barely edges out the M5 Pro as the best SSD we’ve yet tested. With good read speeds and incredible write speeds, it definitely offers a great purchase option albeit at a top tier price. With the M5 Pro not released as of yet, it’s hard to say which is the better choice, but at £220 for 240 GB you definitely get your money’s worth with the Corsair Neutron GTX.

Plextor M5 Pro Review reported at 11:53 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: Real World Labs
Article Quote:
The M5 Pro is all new technology at this point and as always there is a maturation process. We know there is practically an infinite number of ways to adjust performance through fine tuning of firmware when it comes to Marvell FPU’s so who knows a shot at taking the performance crown away from SandForce could be just a firmware update away. Here’s the thing if you want top incompressible performance and top multitasking performance which are very high on some user’s lists then you really can’t do much better than the Plextor M5 Pro and it could be a superior choice to SandForce in that scenario. You get SLC type performance with incompressible data from a MLC drive that’s not only a top performer; you get a drive that has reliability as a hallmark of its overall performance.

Corsair Dominator Platinum DDR3-2666 4x4GB Kit Review reported at 11:48 AM
category: DDR3 Memory     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
There's not much I can say here that I haven't already said about the Corsair Dominator Platinum 2666 MHz kit. I absolutely LOVE the new esthetics that are compatible with nearly every stylized motherboard on the market, and Corsair is going to improve the flexibility of those looks shortly with more lighting selections! I was able to clock them higher than I've been able to get any other memory kit, and that with some very reasonable timings. They've still got the Corsair Link functionality, so I got to put my old Airflow Pro Parametric display to use as well.

Razer Star Wars: The Old Republic Edition Wireless Gaming Mouse Review reported at 11:42 AM
category: Mice     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
"Overall Razer have created a great looking Star Wars product that has performance to match. It has great features – whilst some might be a little gimmicky (changeable emblem), but overall they improve the usability and with decent wireless functionality and different charging methods, they really have produced a great mouse. Whilst the price is almost insane for a mouse, if you can afford it and you are a die hard Star Wars fan, then this is the mouse for you. So since we are big fans of the Star Wars scene and have had a great experience with the SW:TOR edition Naga, we’re happy to let our nerdy side get the better of us and award the mouse with the prestigious."

XFX Radeon HD 7750 Black Edition Double D Review reported at 11:37 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: TBreak
Article Quote:
So if you’re on a very tight budget, then the XFX R7750 Black Edition gives great value for money in that segment; otherwise you can always splurge a little extra and get an HD7770 (and overclock that too!).

AFOX Radeon HD 7850 Single Slot Review reported at 11:34 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: iXBT Hardware
Article Quote:
AFOX Radeon HD 7850 (Single Slot) is one of the best Radeon HD 7850 graphics cards for its price. The biggest disadvantage is the noisy cooling system. It efficiently prevents you from using this single-slot card in barebone rigs, for which it was made in the first place.

category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: MadShrimps
Article Quote:
If a good looking case, with ease of installation, splendid cable management and more than adequate cooling performance at a very acceptable noise level is on the top of your priority list, then this C70 perfectly fit's the bill. For it's looks and well designed military theme, Madshrimps awards the C70 Vengeance case the Novelty award.

A-DATA XPG SX900 Review reported at 11:27 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: Benchmark Reviews
Article Quote:
"During benchmark testing I noted that the performance results matched those of ultra-premium SSDs, yet ADATA's XPG SX900 series is presently among the least expensive solid state drives available in each capacity. For an entry-level price, consumers are getting a full upgrade kit with 2nd-generation LSI/SandForce SF-2281 SSD that performs among the fastest SATA-based storage solutions. On top of performance, you're also getting back 7% of the storage capacity previously 'lost' to provisioning. Together, these three reasons give the ADATA XPG SX900-series a formidable lead ahead of competing SSDs that lack speed, capacity, and price. I highly recommend the ADATA XPG SX900 Solid State Drive, as it's earned our Golden Tachometer Award for excellence."

Xigmatek SD1283 Dark Knight Night Hawk Edition Review reported at 11:23 AM
category: CPU Coolers     website: Overclockers Club
Article Quote:
Overall, I like both of these coolers and I really like that Xigmatek has introduced an ultra-budget cooler to the market. The Xigmatek Loki SD963 can be purchased for $20 or less and will perform well enough for the average power user and gamer, even if there's a little bit of overclocking. Looking up to the Xigmatek Dark Knight SD1283 I see similar performance to slightly higher-end coolers (up to $65) all while using only a single fan. I think anyone who's looking for a $20 or a $50 cooler would do well with the Loki SD963 or the Dark Knight SD1283 respectively. Take an extra fan you have laying around and wire it up on the other side of the heatsink and you've just gained yourself a couple of extra degrees of performance! To conclude, I like both of the coolers and they perform well. With an extra fan you'd have even better performance, too!

eVGA SuperNOVA NEX1500 Classified Review reported at 11:14 AM
category: Power Supplies     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
"The new NEX1500 is made for you if you own a suitable mainboard (e.g. an EVGA Classified SR-X) and three to four ultra high-end VGAs. This PSU is the strongest of its kind on the market today and comes with enough power to support not only four, but eight VGAs (for future mainboards). It surely has a high price-tag but is still priced lower than a high-end graphics card, and you will keep the PSU for much much longer."
