SteelSeries Siberia V2 Review reported at 04:45 PM
category: headsets     website: NikKTech
Article Quote:
With a current retail price tag set at USD113.70 inside the USA (Amazon) and at around 120Euros inside the EU the Siberia V2 Frost Blue USB Headset by SteelSeries is certainly not cheap especially since it lacks surround audio (offered by other almost similarly priced solutions) but it's a great looking light weight headset with an integrated USB soundcard, plenty of bass and crystal clear stereo sound. Still if you want the best possible experience with surround compatible games and movies then an true surround sound headset like the Tritton AX Pro is obviously a better choice overall (although it costs more and it's not as comfortable). On the other hand if you care not about surround sound then the Siberia V2 Frost Blue USB Headset is a very good solution and that's why it gets our Golden Award.

AMD A8-5600K Review reported at 04:44 PM
category: Socket FM2     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
Price wise you’ll be looking at just under the £80 mark for the APU itself and then obviously you have a large range of boards across three chipsets to go for, but we do recommend the A85x chipset and a good brand such as Gigabyte like we used today as it shows that they work really well together, it’s just a shame that the APU didn’t manage to offer a little bit more performance on the CPU side of things.

ZOTAC GeForce GTX 660 Ti AMP! Edition Review reported at 12:16 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: t-break
Article Quote:
For the money, I would suggest sticking to the regular Zotac GTX 660Ti AMP! Edition, especially because it comes with a code for Borderlands 2. At $40 more, the Extreme Edition comes with higher speeds that barely make an impact, and a quality mouse surface, which probably isn’t worth more than getting a copy of the hottest PC game right now for free. So save the money and just get the regular GTX 660Ti AMP! Edition because that package still represents excellent value for money.

AMD A10-5800K Review reported at 12:15 PM
category: Socket FM2     website: Tom's Hardware
Article Quote:
AMD counts on a “good enough” showing in x86-based applications and ample 3D muscle to play a number of modern games at mainstream resolutions. In exchange, you’re asked to accept comparatively high power use. But it’s a price point below what Intel charges for its neutered Core i3-3220 that swings favor toward the A10-5800K for enthusiasts on a strict budget.

Lian Li PC-B12 Review reported at 12:14 PM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
"This chassis is sure to go down well with the Lian Li faithful fans, but I think it may be a hard sell to those who have never used one of their chassis before and with a price tag of a bit over £110 its not too cheap either, for what at first glance appears to be a featureless chassis, even though in many ways that is the style Lian Li were trying to achieve here. But given its superb build quality and even higher quality finish, light weight and no compromise functionality I am still more than happy to award it our eTeknix Innovation Award."

MSI FM2-A85XA-G65 Review reported at 11:54 AM
category: AMD Socket FM2 Motherboards     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
"Overall, I can honestly say that this board has given me mixed feelings, as I simply love the design of it and the feature list is certainly plentiful with the amount of SATA III ports, and the performance we saw with the SATA III and USB 3.0 ports alone. I don’t feel that this board warrants a performance based award or anything focussed on overclocking, but sticking to the board overall, I do feel that it’s quite innovative, especially with the style factor, and therefore it does warrant receiving our Innovation Award."

AMD A10-5800K Review reported at 11:40 AM
category: Socket FM2     website: Benchmark Reviews
Article Quote:
While the A10-5800K is priced for $129.99 (Newegg), it certainly brings with it more value that similarly priced Intel processors in my opinion. The reason for this lies solely in the GPU. The CPU side of the house is pretty even, but slightly behind the competition. The GPU side, however, destroys the IGP on the i3-3220. Even though I didn't have an i7-3770K on hand to check against the Intel HD4000 graphics, from looking at the benchmarks, I can pretty definitely say that the A10-5800K graphics will far outperform the HD4000. Simply because of that superior graphics performance, I have to give the A10-5800K high value marks for the price.

AMD A8-5600K & A10-5800K Review reported at 11:38 AM
category: Socket FM2     website: Overclockers Club
Article Quote:
The GPU power and the change to modern architecture is exciting to see as well as reaping benefits to this great platform. On a single die you have a reasonably powerful quad-core CPU and 384 powerful GPU cores with the clever engineering to throttle and move around these resources lightning fast to accommodate the task at hand. This is in addition to a fully featured video encoder/decoder and a unified northbridge. Add to this an additional half a gigahertz of free performance on the CPU side and enough overclocking headroom on the GPU side to almost kick it up to the power of the next rung on the graphic ladder, and you have something that does not come close to existing anywhere on the market in price-performance or in functionality.
