InWin H-Frame Review reported at 11:48 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
"In Win keeps true to their way of doing things by offering a crazy chassis like this. The In Win H-Frame is by no means a sensible chassis. It comes with an extremely high price tag, offers only basic features, and does not come with any fans. But, before you go ahead and say, "Well then, why would I ever consider this chassis?", let me mention that this is an awesome chassis because of its design. In the end, In Win is offering a case of excellent quality, with excellent hot-swap bays, use of aluminum throughout the case, and the ability to hold a high-end system with enough room for two long graphic cards. You will expect such functionality from a case with such a high price tag, but you will not buy this case because of its features, and purely because of its looks. The fact that In Win offers looks with the H-Frame, while still giving you all the tools to create a powerful system with enough hard-drive bays for most scenarios, makes this the most beautifully unreasonable case one can buy."

BitFenix Prodigy Review reported at 11:39 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: Pro-Clockers.com
Article Quote:
The BitFenix is one of the better ITX cases out there. It has a list of features that you will not find in many cases of this size. This has been one of the few times I was happy to receive a case and just as happy to get the chance to work on one. Yes, most of it was due to the hype the case has received from the vast users that post up on the forums. The hype the Prodigy received made it seems like it was the second coming.

Kingston HyperX Predator DDR3-2400 2x4GB Kit Review reported at 11:37 AM
category: DDR3 Memory     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
"The bottom line is that this kit is perfect for performance as we expected and warrants users wanting some of the best memory around. You can straight away tell that a lot of development on the design and performance has been put into this kit and with the great success of the T1 series under their belt, they hope to repeat the same with the Predator lineup and I say good luck to them, as they certainly impressed us here today."

ZOTAC GeForce GTX 660 AMP! Edition Review reported at 11:25 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: Real World Labs
Article Quote:
Aside from the memory interface, the GTX 660 is an exceptional graphics card for anyone playing games on a single display. It has the ability to turn the settings to a relatively high level and does well in most DX11 games, sans only the ones that require substantial memory bandwidth. This of course applies to the ZOTAC model as well, but seeing as this graphics card is one of the smallest GTX 660’s on the market it is an excellent buy for anyone with a small case or portable gaming case. Proving the old adage that big things can really come in small packages.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 Roundup reported at 11:23 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: Hardware.Info
Article Quote:
There was nothing wrong with Nvidia's reference cooler, but this round-up proves there are some nice alternatives as well. MSI has a good card with the N680GTX Twin Frozr 2GD5/OC, it's slightly overclocked, cools better, and it is also the most silent out of all cards we tested. MSI's Lightning card is the fastest card with also the best overclocking potential, but it's loud. If you're not planning on extreme overclocking, then our vote goes to the ASUS GTX680-DC2T-2GD5. It has the highest standard GPU clock frequencies, by far the best cooling, is quiet and also has voltage measuring points. The one (possible) drawback of that card is that it takes up three slots.

Razer Carcharias Review reported at 11:13 AM
category: headsets     website: Benchmark Reviews
Article Quote:
This is a little higher than most mid-range wired analog headsets, however for the comfort factor alone, I would happily spend this. Based on the product alone, Carcharias delivers more than most other headsets. In my opinion, I could justify the extra cost of the headset for the ability to wear it for 8 or more hours without getting a headache. This, however, could be subjective due to my glasses, shape of my head, and personal preference.

PowerColor DEVIL13 HD 7990 6GB Review reported at 11:09 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: HardwareCanucks
Article Quote:
Regardless of its minor issues, the Devil 13 is a tour de force for PowerColor. PowerColor pushed ahead and released a card some thought would never come to fruition and they did so without asking gamers to sacrifice too much…other than a thousand bucks. For the technology behind its facade, tenacious persistence, a high end design that seems to partially justify its premium and great all-round gaming performance, the Devil 13 deserves some serious street cred despite an astronomical price. We just hope other manufacturers will choose PowerColor's path to take a few risks since this market needs some excitement every now and then.

FSP Raider 550W Review reported at 11:07 AM
category: Power Supplies     website: APH Networks
Article Quote:
"FSP’s Raider lineup of power supplies is aimed at everyday users and enthusiasts on a budget. From our affiliates with professional load testing equipment, everything is generally pretty good. With efficiency ratings that are close to the AURUM Gold (Except on lighter loads), and a current price for approximately $80 USD after a mail-in-rebate at press time, the price is a bit higher than average, but you can be sure this one packs quality under the hood."
