Corsair H100i Review reported at 01:55 PM
category: Power Supplies     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
The Corsair H100i is not a low cost product, but it is actually well priced for what it is. Due to the fact this product targets a niché market we think it is most appropriate to award the Corsair H100i with our Extreme Performance Award because the H100i offers exactly that, at an attractive price point, and with a boat load of functionality.

Sapphire Vapor-X Review reported at 01:53 PM
category: CPU Coolers     website: Pro-Clockers.com
Article Quote:
In Sapphire’s first attempt at CPU air-cooling, we found they did an admirable job. The Vapor-X and its vapor chamber technology did just as well on our test bench today as they've been doing on Sapphire's own graphic cards these past few years.

Asus P8Z77-V LX Review reported at 12:01 PM
category: Socket 1155 Motherboards     website: Hardware.Info
Article Quote:
The ASUS P8Z77-V LX board does not excel enough in terms of specifications or test results that it can give the Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H a run for its money.

Roccat Kone Pure Review reported at 11:52 AM
category: Mice     website: KitGuru
Article Quote:
A comfortable mouse that offers great gaming and general usage performance. Unfortunately its price tag forces it to compete against the superior Kone XTD, amongst others.

Corsair Hydro H60 & H55 Review reported at 11:52 AM
category: Power Supplies     website: HardwareCanucks
Article Quote:
In our opinion, this revised water cooler is one of the most user friendly products currently available. While an in-depth installation procedure ensures the H60 remains just out of plug and play solution territory, we have yet to come across a more intuitive setup process. Both the Intel and AMD mounting kits are exceptionally well designed, which certainly bodes well for first time users who are taking their first plunge into the liquid cooled pool.

Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP7 Review reported at 11:47 AM
category: Socket 1155 Motherboards     website: X-bit labs
Article Quote:
So, Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP7 will primarily interest overclocking enthusiasts who like to experiment, break records, and use either one or multiple graphics cards, depending on their ultimate goals. Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP7 is a practically ideal choice for any of these tasks. But, it will also be a great option for a powerful home system, provided you disregard a few minor drawbacks pointed out above.

AMD FX-8350 / FX-8320 / FX-6300 / FX-4300 Review reported at 11:47 AM
category: Socket AM3+ CPUs     website: X-bit labs
Article Quote:
I have to say that the results of this test session have practically fully confirmed what we have already seen before in the first review of Socket AM3+ processors with Piledriver microarchitecture. The only difference is that this time we looked not only at the top CPU model, but at the entire product line-up. And this allowed us to somewhat revise our attitude to new AMD products.

Enermax Revolution 87+ Review reported at 11:45 AM
category: Power Supplies     website: NikKTech
Article Quote:
The Revolution87+ line may be less costly than the higher end Platimax line but that doesn't mean it comes cheap and so the 850W variant (ERV850EWT-G) will set you back around USD230 inside the USA (although currently you will have a very hard time finding one) and 180Euros inside the EU. That price tag that puts it right next to other similar solutions from leading brands in the field (P10/Strider Evo/AXPro). In the end it all comes down to personal preference (and performance although the differences with such high end units are not really large) so the overall build quality and design will play the largest part in a decision. Personally we really enjoy the rugged exterior of the Revolution87+ line (and the 85+ before that), its future proof feature and also because the performance of the 850W variant is not easy to come by we are awarding it with our Golden Award.

Asus Rampage IV Formula Review reported at 11:40 AM
category: Socket 2011 Motherboards     website: ThinkComputers
Article Quote:
This is a gaming motherboard so ASUS has you covered on that end. We have already talked about the audio, but ASUS has set up this board so you can have 4 graphics cards installed. The PCIe slots are configured so you can have all of them in use at the same time. Now not everyone is going to be using a quad-GPU setup, so if you have 2 cards installed they both will run at x16 speed. Also ASUS is using Intel’s 82579V ethernet chip. This chip will cut down your network CPU usage, which will improve performance in games.

Crucial M4 C400 Review reported at 11:29 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: PC Stats
Article Quote:
If you're still using a mechanical hard disk drive, bring up stopwatch.com on your iPad the next time you boot up Windows... while you sit around waiting for your PC to spring to life consider that an SSD can fix this problem. Solid State Drives can noticeably improve overall computer system responsiveness and load times. As the Crucial M4 SSD goes, it's quick, competitively priced and covered by Crucial's excellent support. Recommended.
