NZXT H2 Review reported at 12:28 PM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: ocaholic
Article Quote:
We can recommend the H2 to everybody who's looking for an overall great silent PC case. If you put the fans to 40% of their maximum rotation speed they become subjectively inaudible.

SilverStone SUGO SST-SG09 Review reported at 12:19 PM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: Pro-Clockers.com
Article Quote:
There are a number of things to like about the Silverstone SG09 case and the big one is its size. We have reviewed several cases in the pass that are meant to serve as an enclosure for a mATX motherboard. But we have not yet reviewed one that is the size of an ITX case. That is right; the SG09 is large enough to hold a multi-GPU capable motherboard but is similar in size or smaller than some enthusiasts ITX cases.

Thermaltake Water 2.0 Extreme Review reported at 12:11 PM
category: CPU Coolers     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
The bottom line is this product is an excellent acquisition if you have a Sandy Bridge-E, Sandy Bridge or Bulldozer/Piledriver platform where heat output is very high, it performs better than the competition on those platforms. However, on Ivy Bridge based LGA 1155 systems you will see very little difference between the cheaper Corsair H100i so it is not a recommendable purchase for Ivy Bridge – 3770K and 3570K users would be better served by other products. However, if you are using an FX 8350, FX 8150, i7 3930K, i7 3960X, i7 3970X, i7 3820, 2500K, 2550K, 2600K or 2700K (to name but a few!) then this is definitely going to give you better performance over the competition and similarly priced products.

Western Digital WE RE Review reported at 12:06 PM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: Techgage
Article Quote:
If you’re a home user with deep pockets that cares a lot about enterprise-level equipment, the RE would make for a great addition to your server or NAS. For everyone else, the Black 4TB is still more than sufficient where 4TB drives are concerned, though its latencies still leave a bad taste in our mouths. Fortunately, the RE 4TB suffered no such performance hold-ups, often proving faster than the Black 2TB. Its pricing will keep it out of the hands of most people, but there’s no denying just how sweet of a drive this is.

Antec P280 Review reported at 12:04 PM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: NikKTech
Article Quote:
When Antec announced the Performance One P280 Super Mid Tower a few months back i was really excited mainly because the first thought that came to mind was that since the P193 V3 was a great PC Case (and just an upgrade of the original P193) the brand new P280 would be a lot better and although i wasn't 100% on the spot the P280 proved to be a very good PC Case. As a matter of fact it is so good that as all of you know we decided to ask Antec to include one in our current giveaway. Now the only reason i say that i wasn't 100% on the spot is because the P280 may follow the same design and share many of the features found in its predecessors but it's not as quiet (marginally worse) and also lacks the left side panel fan featured in the P193 V3. On the other hand it's lighter, has a better airflow potential (if you install all 7 fans), has an all-black painted interior and generally it's a more "complete" solution than its predecessors. Still there's room for improvement so i really hope Antec releases a P300 or something similar really soon.

Samsung 840 Pro Review reported at 11:51 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
With a price of $250 for the 256 GB version, the 840 Pro is quite expensive, but ends up $20 or 10% cheaper than the OCZ Vector. You can't go wrong with either product if you are in the market for a high-performance SSD. More price-conscious users should also look at the aging 240 GB SandForce drives, which come at outstanding pricing right now and are not much slower. Technically, the 840 Pro should be very cheap to make for Samsung as all components, including the flash chips, are provided by Samsung itself, so we may see some price drops with more competition in the high-end market.

Cooler Master / DEEPCOOL / Noctua / Thermaltake CPU Cooler Roundup reported at 11:46 AM
category: CPU Coolers     website: Overclockers Club
Article Quote:
You'll notice as you read through this roundup that I've left price out of the equation. This is because I actually didn't even look up the prices until after testing and writing about each cooler. Sure, I had some notion of cost based on the different styles of coolers, but I didn't know for sure. Second, assuming you read through the review instead of jumping directly to this page, it allowed you to get a good idea of how the different heat sinks performed without pre-judging based on their price tag. That all said; some of the prices surprised me. The Cooler Master TPC 812 is priced at $64.99, the DEEPCOOL Ice Blade Pro V2.0 at $44.99, the DEEPCOOL Neptwin at $50.99, the Noctua NH-L12 at $69.99 and the Thermaltake Water 2.0 Extreme rounds out the pack at $129.99. Read on to see how that finalizes my opinion of each!

Thermaltake Water 2.0 Extreme Review reported at 04:01 AM
category: CPU Coolers     website: ThinkComputers
Article Quote:
I suppose at this point I should admit that in this case the term “Extreme” is warranted. As gaudy as the word is, this closed loop system really is everything and the kitchen sink. Installation was well thought out and simple. The loop itself is of exceptional build quality. Even the software included is admirable! That alone is something worth taking note of for all the other manufacturers selling these types of coolers. Tt has truly set itself apart with this one.
