InWin GRone Review reported at 12:30 PM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: HardwareLook
Article Quote:
The In-Win GRone takes over a lot of the other ultra cases on the market, it would be on an equal level, apart from the low £100 price tag and the five fans added by default, with not one but two large water cooling radiators. The In-Win GRone is so say the least a brilliant enclosure to built your high-end gaming PC into.

SteelSeries 6Gv2 Review reported at 12:26 PM
category: Keyboards     website: Real World Labs
Article Quote:
There’s no reason to give a perfectly good looking keyboard a bad score, but that does not warrant a full five points. To get all of the points a product has to leave an impression, and that is exactly what the black switch 6GV2 did with its rock solid design and switch choice. The red switch variant did not have the feeling to it I wanted for typing, and the black switch had that feeling and more. For the $99.99-129.99 these keyboards can be found for in the United States I believe the black switch keyboard is a little less flare for a lot more keyboard. Keep in mind that it is very tough to make that distinction considering that aside from the packaging I really had no reason to dislike anything but the red switch’s feel. Keep your eye out for these in the wild, and if you see it at your next LAN give it a shot. You won’t be disappointed!

Asus MX279H Review reported at 12:16 PM
category: 20/22/24 INCH     website: Hardware.Info
Article Quote:
"The ASUS MX279H is an outstanding monitor, that much is clear. It has a stylish design and quality materials, giving it a deluxe feel. That is likely the reason for the relatively high price. The very similar LG IPS277L-BN distinguishes itself with the MHL interface, and especially the factory calibration."

Cooler Master CM Storm Ceres-400 Review reported at 12:09 PM
category: headsets     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
Overall a solid performance from the Ceres 400 headset and certainly better than I was expecting. That is not to say I was expecting poor performance from the latest CM Storm headset, but given their price tag I wasn’t expecting the sound quality to be as rich from a headset with such a modest price tag.

GELID GX-7 Review reported at 12:08 PM
category: CPU Coolers     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
We really liked the Gelid Solutions GX-7 as it offers a great deal of performance for your money. The acoustic performance is really good too and the aesthetics of the product are very robust and suitable for a lot of gamer cases on the market. In fact it is sensible to look at this as a cheaper and slightly worse performing alternative to the Sapphire Vapor-X CPU cooler which now costs £60 (having risen from just under £50 since its launch), so if you consider this costs half the price and only sacrifices 4 degrees in performance then it is actually really good. Gelid also deserve praise for including an additional set of fan clips and bundling some genuinely-high-performance GC2 thermal paste, most other manufacturers opt for a small amount of a really quite rubbish unbranded thermal paste.

750/950W PSU Roundup reported at 11:59 AM
category: Power Supplies     website: Hardware.Info
Article Quote:
If you're looking for a silent PSU for a good price, then a good choice is the Cooler Master Silent Pro M2. While it's not semi-passive, it's very silent up to our 500W test. It's very efficient a 88.6 percent, but due to the high ripple we would not recommend this one to overclockers. Still, it gets the Silver Award, along with the Corsair AX850 and the Seasonic X-Series 850W which are in fact identical PSUs. They're passively cooled to above 300 watts, have the lowest ripple (max. 30 mVtt), are 90 percent efficient, and have very good voltages. Their only drawback is that they are louder at high loads than the Be Quiet PSU.

Corsair H100i Review reported at 11:50 AM
category: Power Supplies     website: Pro-Clockers.com
Article Quote:
It all comes down to performance when it comes to a piece of hardware like this. Well, the H100i performed like a champ. We tested against Thermaltake larger AIO and the cooling aspect was extremely close making the choosing of one difficult with the final decision coming down to other features.

Roccat Kave Review reported at 11:46 AM
category: headsets     website: ThinkComputers
Article Quote:
Looking at the Roccat Kave as an overall package, it’s hard not to recommend it. It delivers great sound quality and performance. The construction of the headset is worth noting again. Even though it’s a bit on the heavy side, it has an amazingly solid feel to it which makes it a great choice for LAN’s or tossing it in a bag for on the go use. I also really liked the options provided in the desktop controller. Most headsets just feature your standard volume and mute options, but Roccat takes it a step further and eliminates the need to adjust volume settings through a soundcard manager on your PC. My only minor gripe with the Kave is the headband design as I don’t feel like it does an adequate job of weight distribution for extended periods of use.
