SilverStone Heligon HE02 Review reported at 12:08 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.

Asus RT-N56U Review reported at 12:06 PM
category: Internet Routers     website: PC Perspective
Article Quote:
All in all, I really like the ASUS RT-N56U. The firmware alone gives this router capabilities and functions usually reserved for high end networking gear. For $99 online you are not only getting a pretty solid Wireless router, you are getting an online file sharing tool, a FTP server, a Network Printer Server, backup internet protection, a torrent box, a DLNA media server, a NAS box, a firewall, and a VPN server all tucked into a nice little package. The RT-N56U is a no brainer for anyone in the market for a good solid router. While you won’t see the blazing wireless speeds you might get on some of the newer AC or even N routers, considering this router is probably $50 or $60 cheaper than those this is a great buy. The ASUS RT-N56U just flat out exceeded my expectations in just about every area. While I had been contemplating replacing my current router with an ASUS RT-N66U, I think the RT-N56U will be handling my networking needs in the near future.

Western Digital My Passport Edge Review reported at 12:05 PM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: Hardware.Info
Article Quote:
"The WD My Passport Edge is a nice external hard disk with decent performance. It's compact and light, and comes with lots of useful software. It's a good option for an average price of £72, even if we would have liked to see better performance."

Corsair AX760 Review reported at 11:52 AM
category: Power Supplies     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
"To sum up, the AX760 is a no brainer if you don't want many bells and whistles (aka digital control), but do want the best that money can buy in this category. You will invest a serious amount of money, that is for sure, but you will enjoy Corsair's support for seven years while your system is being fed by ultra-clean and stable DC outputs. As I stated many times in the past, the purchase of a PSU is an investment, so better take it very seriously. A good PSU will accompany you for many many years and will actually protect your system in case something goes horribly wrong."

Corsair H60 Review reported at 11:41 AM
category: CPU Coolers     website: Ninjalane
Article Quote:
While this may sound like a bad thing the Corsair H60 did provide better load temperatures at 4.4Ghz than you could attain using the OEM cooler at default speeds and which is the point of this product to begin with.

Enermax Hoplite ST Review reported at 11:41 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
Overall I think there isn’t anything that really stands out other than it’s style, which isn’t enough for me to give it an eTeknix award. That’s not to say it isn’t a great chassis, because it is and if you bought one I’m sure you would be very happy with it. I’m just not sure it’s worth £70+ and had it been around the £50 price point it would have our eTeknix Bang for Buck award. Of course this is all just my opinion and surely that is the purpose of me reviewing it. It’s a great product overall but it’s just not quite as good as it could have been for this price range.
