Outside the availability the GTX 660 Ti AMP! Extreme is the best graphics cards we have tested based on the GTX 660 Ti design. So, here is to hoping ZOTAC can get this model on the market sooner rather than later.

Lexar JumpDrive S73 Review reported at 01:09 PM
category: Tape/Zip/Jaz Drives     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
"The Lexar JumpDrive S73 is by no means a speed demon, but it works just as advertised. The drive is perfect for those looking for a cheap, colorful drive with plenty of space. Clocking in at just under 30 dollars, the unit offers just that while adding the benefit of slightly faster read speed with the USB 3.0 connector - speeds that are impossible with USB 2.0. As with most flash drives in the lower price category, the S73 lacks write performance, and its write speed can't fill USB 2.0 bandwidth up fully. The Lexar JumpDrive S73 is, that having been said, worth taking a look at if you are looking for a cheap, flashy, and functional drive, especially because of its retractable USB connector."

Asus Matrix HD 7970 Platinum Review reported at 01:01 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
The Asus Matrix HD 7970 Platinum really is the fastest single core graphics card on the planet and it certainly packs a punch while still being quiet, efficient and cool and though its the size of a small house, it still looks beautiful no matter how you look at it and no matter who you are, you know you want one.

Corsair CX430 Review reported at 12:58 PM
category: Power Supplies     website: ocaholic
Article Quote:
Furthermore it's practical that Corsair decided to go for quite a compact form factor. Therefore this unit easily fits in a mini-ITX case. What we would have loved to see were two 6+2 pin adaptors and not only one. Also it would have been great if there were at least two more SATA connectors. With such a configuration, this unit would have been much more flexible and you could have also used it for a decent gaming PC or in a home file server and not only in an office PC. Last but not least there is the fan which is silent even when the PSU is under 50 percent load. At 100 percent load the operating noise can be described as subjectively audible.

GeIL EVO VELOCE DDR3-1866 2x8GB Kit Review reported at 12:54 PM
category: DDR3 Memory     website: ocaholic
Article Quote:
"Being an overclockaholic website, overclockability is one important feature. Sadly, this kit left us with mixed feelings. On one hand the kit can do way better than the specs which is very good. On the other hand it's not easy to work with and the scaling stops at 1.5v for most timings."

Asus HD7970-DC2-3GD5 Review reported at 12:46 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: HardwareCanucks
Article Quote:
The ASUS HD 7970 Matrix Platinum represents a seamless combination of bleeding edge performance, excellent acoustics solid software and sky-high overclocking potential. It truly is a poster child that represents just how far graphics card technology has progressed over the last few years. It may just be the best card currently available and it wins all three of our awards, becoming only the fourth product in the history of Hardware Canucks to do so.

Cooler Master CM Storm Recon Mouse & Skorpion Review reported at 12:45 PM
category: Mice     website: Benchmark Reviews
Article Quote:
Performance-wise the Recon and Skorpion do well, although I would have liked some more button customization options from the Recon, and some stiffer mouse buttons. Recon is a fast mouse, although not so sensitive as to be too fast for your average gamer.

Corsair Carbide 200R Review reported at 12:36 PM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: Overclockers Hardware
Article Quote:
This case offers nearly everything that the more expensive 300R and 400R offer but at a much lower price without any real drawbacks in terms of usability or construction. If I were building a new rig today I'd honestly have a hard time passing up such a good deal on a case that must be built with razor-thin margins. I can't think of another way Corsair has managed to pack this much case into just under $60. People; we have a winner!

Lexar JumpDrive Triton Review reported at 12:26 PM
category: Tape/Zip/Jaz Drives     website: PC Stats
Article Quote:
"While the SanDisk Extreme proved itself a bit quicker and cheaper, if style is your game and you want a metal USB 3.0 drive that doesn't feel flimsy in the hand (as the SD Extreme felt at times), then the Lexar JumpDrive Triton is well worth your consideration."

SilverStone Heligon HE02 Review reported at 12:20 PM
category: CPU Coolers     website: Frosty Tech
Article Quote:
"To sum up, the passive Silverstone HE02 heatsink is capable of satisfactory cooling in a sufficiently ventilated case, but only for thermal loads of 95W or less, so long as the heatsink is in a horizontal orientation which promotes convective cooling. In all other test scenario's the Silverstone HE02 proved unsatisfactory. If you plan on using this passive heatsink in a mid-tower PC chassis, the entire top of the case should be ventilated and the side panel should have a good deal of air venting as well."
