Crucial Ballistix Sport VLP DDR3-1600 2x8GB Kit Review reported at 12:38 PM
category: DDR3 Memory     website: Moons Descendarium
Article Quote:
"Because very low profile modules aren’t very common in the high-end market, there aren’t many comparable products out there. A generic DDR3-1600 16GB kit costs about €60.-, but at €75.- the Ballistix Sport VLP are very reasonably priced. If you’re looking for high performance low profile RAM for an HTPC, or to stick underneath a big CPU heatsink, then these Ballistix are great for you. If you’re not in a such a situation, you may as well get any other kit for a bit less, or with better overclocking potential."

SanDisk Extreme 120GB SSD Review reported at 12:29 PM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: Hardware.Info
Article Quote:
Still, it's not all negative. With these Extreme SSDs SanDisk has proven it can make quality SSDs with reasonable performance. Unlike the SanDisk U100 SSDs from its OEM division that perform more like USB sticks in 2.5-inch format, the Extreme SSDs do perform well. And when an important party like SanDisk enters the consumer SSD market, that's only good news for competition and innovation.

Enermax Triathlor FC Review reported at 12:14 PM
category: Power Supplies     website: KitGuru
Article Quote:
"The Enermax Triathlor FC 700w is ideal for all but the most demanding Crossfire or SLI gaming systems. It is true that some power supplies in this price sector are 80 Plus Gold certified, although the Triathlor FC 700w is an extremely well balanced unit with no discernible weaknesses or compromises in construction quality."

Asus Vulcan Pro Review reported at 11:32 AM
category: headsets     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
The ASUS ROG Vulcan Pro headset is a well-equipped headset in terms of features. It does, however, seem to miss some points. For one, the ANC and its sound quality are not good enough to warrant the price. The CM Storm Sonuz will give you similar sound quality at roughly half the price. Of course, the Vulcan Pro includes a semi-effective ANC system and a USB sound card, but the USB sound card is just dead weight if you don't plan on using it. The ANC system does have its advantages in some scenarios as it proved effective at dampening midrange noise; however, it does raise the noise floor considerably while doing so, which goes against the point of having it in the first place.The Vulcan Pro's strong point is its bass, which is huge, so if you are a bass lover, this headset might bring enough rumble to satisfy you. The bass is very dominant, which definitely enhances the fun factor while gaming, but an EQ bass drop by a few dB would net you better spatial awareness for serious FPS gaming. Its build quality does, of course, match its price-tier, which is great. The ASUS ROG Vulcan Pro has a lot of general things going for it, but it misses out on some key-performance aspects, which is a shame.
