SilverStone Heligon HE01 Review reported at 01:25 PM
category: CPU Coolers     website: Frosty Tech
Article Quote:
Ultimately, where 160-180mm tall Intel tower heatsinks are concerned (specifically, about 55 models in the above Intel reference chart), the Silverstone Heligon HE01 heatsink comes in middle of the pack in terms of thermal performance. However, as we saw in the previous page of this CPU cooler review, the Silverstone Heligon HE01 heatsink excels to a much loftier position when cooling the large 37.5 x 37.5mm IHS of AMD processors. Where AMD processor cooling is concerned, the Silverstone Heligon HE01 is an excellent choice.

Kingston HyperX 3K Review reported at 01:24 PM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: DarkVision Hardware
Article Quote:
The Kingston HyperX 3K SSD delivers impressive performance at an excellent price point. It's the fastest SATA 6Gbps SSD I've tested to date and I have no problem recommending it. The HyperX 3K is a very nice alternative to the original, more expensive HyperX with 5000 p/e cycles. Even with only 3000 p/e cycles this disk should easily last you more than 8 years, a lifecycle that well outlasts the rate at which other computer components are typically upgraded.

Gigabyte GV-N670OC-4GD Review reported at 01:23 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: circuitREMIX
Article Quote:
"So to sum it all up, GIGABYTE offers an interesting package with its GTX 670 offering. Priced in the lower end of the GTX 670 cost scale, GIGABYTE went above and beyond nVidia's reference design and provides a custom cooler in the WINDFORCE, and a full size GTX 680 PCB with a higher quality VRM circuit. These benefits add up to higher overclockability, cooler temperatures and lower levels of noise. Combining an excellent return of competitive performance for the dollar along with a well put together video card, GIGABYTE's GeForce GTX 670 with WINDFORCE cooler earns our Editor's Choice award!"

LEPA G750 Review reported at 01:18 PM
category: Power Supplies     website: PC Perspective
Article Quote:
The LEPA Gold 750W power supply proved to be a very good unit. It produced excellent voltage regulation with very good AC ripple suppression and meets the 80 Plus Gold criteria for efficiency. It comes with a good assortment of both fixed and modular cables and can even operate in silent, Low-Power-Fanless-Mode when operating below 15~20% output.

Fractal Design Node 304 Review reported at 01:12 PM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
The Fractal Design Node 304 does not only look good on the outside, but it also makes great use of its space within. It is clearly the evolution of the Array case: it still offers the ability to install loads of hard drives while also giving the user the ability to go for a big, high-performance GPU. This means that the Node 304 can house a great gaming system, especially as you may also install a fairly large CPU cooler. That said, it still has that storage-unit feel and functionally, which may put a few gamers off. Missing an external drive bay and a reset button put a slight dampener on the Node 304 as a real LAN-party chassis, but it should feel right at home as a storage/media center/gaming unit next to your TV by, for example, allowing you to combine all three aspects with a high-end graphics card, operating system SSD, and three large spinning-drives in Raid 5. Overall, the Node 304 makes a cool and useful impression with a surprising amount of space and flexible usability. Now, just slap a slimline drive-bay in to make it the perfect all-rounder chassis, Fractal Design!

ECS A85F2-A Golden Review reported at 01:03 PM
category: AMD Socket FM2 Motherboards     website: t-break
Article Quote:
The ECS A85F2-A Golden is a great motherboard with some nice features packed in, especially for its price. Overclocking is easy, although not as high as I’ve seen on other FM2 motherboards. The gold plating on everything maybe too much for some people, while others will really like this kind of eye-catching design. It’s a hit and miss affair to be sure, but if you’re considering an FM2 build based on features alone, the ECS A85F2-A Golden is definitely worth checking out.

Asus F2A85-V Pro Review reported at 01:02 PM
category: AMD Socket FM2 Motherboards     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
Overall, we knew straight away that this board was going to be a strong contender, and not just in one area but in pretty much every aspect and that’s what we’ve come to know and love from Asus. It’s always nice when a new platform is invented and we get to see what features are going to be added and with the F2A85-V Pro we find that nothing has been missed out with TPU, EPU, DirectKey, Qslot, and much more and these are all tried and tested features that we know first hand can make a different in terms of performance, quality and longevity of a product.

Cooler Master Storm QuickFire TK Review reported at 12:58 PM
category: Keyboards     website: Ninjalane
Article Quote:
With the Quick Fire TK, Cooler Master has created the ultimate, bare bones, toss in your bag and go keyboard for serious gamers. The price point is most attractive as it brings a mechanical keyboard in range of most budget minded gamers looking for a serious replacement. You won't get programmable macro keys or a dedicated arrow keypad but those aren't for everyone so why pay extra for something you may never use.

OCZ Vector Review reported at 11:48 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: TechSpot
Article Quote:
What we can say with absolute certainty is that in terms of performance the Vector is a worthy successor to the Vertex 4 series. The Vector was on average 27% faster in our file copy tests and is set to cost a little over 10% more, making it not only faster but also a better value. Overall the OCZ Vector 256GB appears to be a solid contender in the performance SSD market.

OCZ Vector Review reported at 11:46 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: PC Perspective
Article Quote:
The OCZ Vector astonished me with its throughput, sheer IOPS performance, and low latency. Tackling the challenges of in-house production has definitely paid off for them. Provided the price remains as low as OCZ promises, I will be recommending the Vector to many a PC builder. OCZ products are not just for the early adopters and power users any more - the Vector appears to be a clear choice for the masses to enjoy.

OCZ Vector Review reported at 11:45 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: HardwareHeaven
Article Quote:
This great performance is backed up by a good bundle which includes maintenance software, imaging software (to move our existing OS to the new drive) and drive bay convertor. Back this with the 5-year warranty and an excellent support forum and OCZ have a great all round product in the Vector.

OCZ Vector Review reported at 11:44 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: Hardware.Info
Article Quote:
We were impressed by the Vector, and if the price can drop a little that enthusiasm will only increase. Then again, if you want the fastest, you have to pay for it. The SSD does come with Acronis data migration software and five years of warranty. We wouldn't be surprised if the OCZ Vector remains on top along with the Samsung 840 Pro for some time to come.

OCZ Vector Review reported at 11:44 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: ocaholic
Article Quote:
If you're looking for one of the fastest SSDs out there, then you should definitely consider the OCZ Vector. The performance you get from this drive is on a highly competitive level. Furthermore you get this very high performance over all different block sizes and it also doesn't matter if data is compressible or not. But in the end there is more than just performance where an SSD should shine bright, there is also reliability and with the Vector you get five years of warranty, which no other manufacturer is outperforming these days.

OCZ Vector Review reported at 11:43 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: HardwareCanucks
Article Quote:
"The Vector was obviously meant to win back some of OCZ’s lost ground in the consumer market and it succeeds in spectacular fashion. Its performance, warranty and many other aspects have put an exclamation point on OCZ’s 2012 lineup. While there is still a truckload of negative press surrounding the company’s current financial situation and some improvements have yet to be incorporated, the Barefoot 3 controller and the Vector 256GB have offered us a tantalizing look into the future."
