ASRock FM2A85X Extreme6 Review reported at 12:39 PM
category: AMD Socket FM2 Motherboards     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
When it comes to FM2, ASRock provides a pretty good feature set, a pretty good BIOS, and decent performance. Other than that, there's not really a lot to say here. As a high-end product for a value platform, it hits the mark and then some.

Phanteks PH-TC12DX Review reported at 12:28 PM
category: CPU Coolers     website: Pro-Clockers.com
Article Quote:
If you are a fan of Phanteks, you will be proud of the TC12DX. It surprised us how smaller it is. This assumption is mostly due to the size characteristics of the TC14PE and the TC14CS which we have also tested. Where some may have issues with mounting the larger coolers thee problems should not exist with the TC12DX.

Fractal Design Newton R3 Review reported at 12:27 PM
category: Power Supplies     website: ThinkComputers
Article Quote:
"When it comes down to performance the Newton R3 600W did great. Voltage regulation on both the 12V and 5V rails was under 1% and the 3.3v rail was just over 1%. That means you are going to have very stable power delivery to your components. Also this power supply is 80PLUS Platinum certified so you are going to have 92% efficiency at 50% load and 89% efficiency at 100% load."

SSD Roundup: January 2013 reported at 12:20 PM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: Tom's Hardware
Article Quote:
At the end of the day, the real-world differences between SSDs in a desktop environment aren't altogether very large. The most important jump happens when you go from a hard drive to (almost) any SSD. With that said, there are measurable attributes that separate one SSD from another. However, they have to be digested as a sum of many parts. Within individual apps, you'll hardly notice the difference between a Vertex 2 and Samsung's 830. But if you look at performance over an entire month, you will find the 830 to be a better performer.

The headset can be found online for about 116 Euros, but we are not afraid to recommend them thanks to the sound and materials quality along with the unique features they bring.

Corsair H100i Review reported at 12:00 PM
category: Power Supplies     website: HardwareCanucks
Article Quote:
All in all, we couldn’t have asked for more from the H80i and H100i. They are adaptable, feature intuitive software and above all else, offer high performance cooling without a contrived installation procedure.

Kingston HyperX 10th Anniversary Edition DDR3-1866 2x4GB Kit Review reported at 11:58 AM
category: DDR3 Memory     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
"In a similar fashion to the design, I have to take my hat off to Kingston as this kit has been one of the easiest and simplest to overclock that I’ve seen in recent months, granted I could spend a little more time with it in a proper overclocking session and give it some more cooling and voltage to suit, but for the every day user or gamer this really is going past the mark of where they want to tinker and this is why i no longer look at memory in this way. To give a great recommendation for this particular kit, I would say, set the XMP profile to #1, then up the divider to 2133MHz, set the timings to auto and away you go. Very simple to do and the results are significant for only two minutes of work in the BIOS."
