Asus F2A55-M LK Review reported at 05:42 PM
category: AMD Socket FM2 Motherboards     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
"No matter who you are, whether you are an enthusiast, system integrator, or just someone who can appreciate a good deal, this board is going to appeal to you no matter what as it certainly offers a lot for the money and for us, the thing that really gave it the wow factor was the overclocking. 4.3GHz out of a board that costs £50 is simply amazing, and frankly quite frightening as maybe this shows us where the future is going with basic but effective products while still giving a good price point."

Cooler Master TPC 812 Review reported at 05:36 PM
category: CPU Coolers     website: APH Networks
Article Quote:
The Cooler Master TPC 812 is a very well designed heatsink that can deliver good (But not necessarily revolutionary) performance -- if it came with a second fan.

OCZ Vertex 3 240GB Review reported at 12:36 PM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: PC Stats
Article Quote:
SSDs offer a large speed advantage over standard mechanical hard drives, with an obvious trade off in storage capacity. Speed up the program files and applications and the rest of your PC hardware will thank you. Infrequently used data files can still be economically stored on mechanical drives, but it's high time Windows 7 wasn't. With peak CrystalDiskMark results for the 240GB OCZ Vertex 3 of 506MB/s Read and 288MB/s Write (AS SSD), the Vertex 3 meets it's advertised speeds. Recommended.

HIS Radeon HD 7970 X Turbo 3GB Review reported at 12:32 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
"The HIS Radeon HD 7970 X Turbo comes with a large overclock out of the box that is higher than any other custom design HD 7970. That improvement nets the card a 6% performance advantage over AMD's HD 7970 GHz Edition reference design. This makes the card 10% faster than the GeForce GTX 680, which is NVIDIA's fastest single-GPU graphics card. I wish HIS had overclocked the memory as well for an extra performance boost at no additional cost. We've seen that approach on the ASUS HD 7970 Matrix, although it comes at a lower GPU clock."

AMD A8-5600K Review reported at 12:20 PM
category: Socket FM2     website: Techware Labs
Article Quote:
Overall the A8-5600k is a solid entry to mid level chip. For the average PC user this is a great processor. You get pretty good CPU performance and surprisingly decent GPU performance as well. Gaming on the 5600k without a discrete GPU is a possibility even in some of the more graphically intense games. But gaming really isn’t what this chip is built for. The 5600k handles everyday tasks such as web browsing, light photo and video editing, and watching high-def movies with ease. And for the ultra productive type, the onboard 7560 has plenty of power to drive 3 monitors.

Logitech G930 Review reported at 11:58 AM
category: Audio Enhancements     website: Benchmark Reviews
Article Quote:
If you are just looking to enjoy your library of games or music, you probably don't need a headset with the features the G930s offer. If you want to experience your games and movies, I would recommend you give this headset a try. In any case, to answer the question - yes, this headset is absolutely worth it. It delivers on every point: performance, build quality, looks, and features. Although it retails for $159, I don't believe I've ever seen it in the market at that price. Given the market price of ~$120, you probably won't be disappointed. It is a well-made, comfortable, solid performing headset that will expand your appreciation for your sense of hearing.

Asus PB278Q Review reported at 11:57 AM
category: 20/22/24 INCH     website: HardwareCanucks
Article Quote:
"Thankfully, unlike what Hollywood would lead you to believe, there can be more than one winner. The victor here is neither Samsung, Dell, ASUS nor any other manufacturer. Rather, this battle between the market’s display titans ultimately benefits the consumer. Having another good option like ASUS’ PB278Q in the $700 price range will be a boon for you and I since selection breeds competition, innovation and (hopefully) lower prices. However, the ASUS PB278Q clearly shows that manufacturers are going to have to bring their "A" game if they want to compete in this marketplace. All is not lost though. If ASUS is able the lower their price by a fraction or other competing options loose their current rebates, the PB278Q would be a great option for budget constrained consumers who aren't willing to settle for TN monitors, and can dedicate TLC and patience towards calibration."
