D-Link DIR-865L Review reported at 09:57 AM
category: Internet Routers     website: Hardware.Info
Article Quote:
"If you're currently in the market for a high-end router, you prefer it to be a D-Link product, but you don't need the new 802.11ac standard, then we would recommend to instead get the DIR-857. That D-Link router does much better on the current 802.11n standard than the DIR-865L, and costs about the same. It does not have the cloud functionality of the DIR-865L, however. Right now that cloud has limited value, but that could change a lot in the future. If it becomes more comprehensive and advanced, then it could be a good alternative for D-Link's aging web interface."

Asus P8Z77 WS Review reported at 09:55 AM
category: Socket 1155 Motherboards     website: PC Perspective
Article Quote:
"At stock operational speeds, the board was a performance powerhouse, easily running with whatever was thrown its way. Couple that performance with the board’s ability to support 4-way NVIDIA SLI or AMD CrossFire and you have the potential for a gaming super-board. Add the gravy of ASUS’ superior implementation of their UEFI BIOS and you have a winner on your hands."

NZXT Aperture M Review reported at 09:52 AM
category: Storage Accessories     website: ThinkComputers
Article Quote:
The addition of the two USB 3.0 ports gives the Aperture M something many card readers do not have. If you upgraded your system, but not your case it is unlikely that your case has USB 3.0 ports. The Aperture M makes a great addition to your case and not only adds dual USB 3.0 ports, but a card reader as well. I would have liked to see a USB 3.0 to USB 2.0 adapter for people whose motherboards do not have USB 3.0 headers so you could still make use of the dual USB ports.

CM Storm Recon & Skorpion Review reported at 09:50 AM
category: Mice     website: HardwareHeaven
Article Quote:
So overall CM Storm has continued it range of excellent gaming peripherals with the Recon. For a mid-range gaming mouse the Recon has excellent build quality with top notch components and a strong software suite provides us with complete control over the Recon. The Skorpion mouse bungee provides an interesting solution to those who don't wish to go down the wireless route. We found it work extremely well and ensured that the USB cable for the Recon was kept out of harm's way during gaming.

GameTiger Case Roundup reported at 09:42 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: Overclockers Club
Article Quote:
The T-Rex Fr-16 is the flagship of the GameTiger lineup and from the list of features to the cooling performance it really shows that it's crammed a lot into the $99 asking price. The fan controller works well and includes hookups for two additional fans. The built-in SATA docking bay functions perfectly and makes drive testing buttery smooth. The cooling performance is simply outstanding and it performs that cooling duty without making much noise at all – bravo GameTiger! The drive bays are removable and reconfigurable to match nearly any requirements even if you want to cram dual Radeon HD 7990s or GTX 690s into this little predator. With the exception of the front panel design (glossy finish and attached wiring) there really are no faults that stick out on this case. Its feature list and performance is unmatched even when compared to more expensive cases. If you're looking for a new case to stomp out your cooling problems then the T-Rex Fr-16 is definitely worth a look!

Zalman CNPS14X Review reported at 09:34 AM
category: CPU Coolers     website: X-bit labs
Article Quote:
Zalman CNPS14X is a remarkable cooler with superb cooling efficiency that comes at a relatively low price. If we look at the prices of the four super-coolers that rank above Zalman CNPS14X in our rating chart, you will see that all of them are priced way above $54.99. Therefore, we have every right to call Zalman CNPS14X a great choice for overclocking fans as well as for regular users need efficient cooling like that. Universal design, reliable retention, ability to accommodate another two fans, attractive exterior and beautiful packaging – all these are indisputable strengths of the new Zalman CNPS14X. The only bad egg in this basket is the ridiculously inconvenient installation procedure. Therefore, if you are looking for a cooler that you will only install once until time comes for the CPU upgrade with the new generation processor, then you can put up with 20 minutes of suffering and then forget all about it once and for all. Other than that, Zalman CNPS14X is an excellent product, which we can definitely recommend, and we have no other concerns about it of any kind.
