Scythe Katana 4 vs. Thermalright TRUE Spirit 90 Review reported at 01:30 PM
category: CPU Coolers     website: X-bit labs
Article Quote:
The Scythe Katana 4 and the Thermalright TRUE Spirit 90 proved to be highly efficient, keeping our six-core CPU stable at clock rates up to 4250 MHz. So, each of them is going to be suitable not only for ordinary desktop PCs but even for overclocked configurations unless you are into setting some overclocking records. That’s quite attractive considering their modest dimensions, weight and price. Both products feature broad compatibility and are easy to install. Their availability isn't a problem, either. The TRUE Spirit 90 is smaller but the Katana 4 is better in terms of noisiness. However, either cooler is going to be an excellent affordable solution for any moderately overclocked PC. Inexpensive but good, the Scythe Katana 4 and Thermalright TRUE Spirit 90 are a real bargain.

category: CPU Coolers     website: X-bit labs

"Today, Scythe Grand Kama Cross Rev. B is a very worthy top-cooler for systems with moderately overclocked processors.

Corsair Hydro H110 Review reported at 11:51 AM
category: CPU Coolers     website: ocaholic
Article Quote:
If you should be thinking about buying an all-in-one watercooler and you have a case that can house a 280 millimeter radiator, then the H110 from Corsair is an excellent choice. Last but not least there is the very aggressive price of this product, which is about CHF 120.- (est. EUR 100.-).

Asustor AS-604T Review reported at 11:13 AM
category: Storage Accessories     website: Hardware.Info
Article Quote:
"Had the AS-604T had a QNAP sticker on it presenting it as an inbetween model, we would have believed it. As it is, we feel that the price is a little too high. If that drops somewhat, then this becomes a very interesting NAS device. The high price point is also the reason why it doesn't get any awards."

Fractal Design Node 304 Review reported at 11:10 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: ThinkComputers
Article Quote:
Of course the king of the mini ITX cases is the BitFenix Prodigy. The Node 304 is in no way a Prodigy killer, but a great alternative. Especially for those looking for the most compact case with the most storage space. That is where the Node 304 really shines.

Razer Star Wars: The Old Republic Gaming Headset Review reported at 11:10 AM
category: headsets     website: MadShrimps
Article Quote:
"The headset does not have real 7.1-channel surround since it features only two drivers, but it can emulate this by using Dolby Pro Logic IIx; the difference can be spotted immediately when turning the feature on, but the quality of the sound also depends on the audio material. The bass does not distort at higher volume levels and the other frequencies were delivered clearly, without additional noise in the games, movies and TV shows we tested the product on."

"A feature-rich motherboard that possesses very good overclocking capabilities and a wealth of expansion options. Hopefully the price can drop to around £130 to make the ASRock 990FX Extreme9 a serious contender in the high-end AM3+ motherboard market."

PC Power & Cooling Silencer MkIII Review reported at 10:48 AM
category: Power Supplies     website: Hardware.Info
Article Quote:
The PC Power & Cooling Silencer Mk III 750W made a very good impression. It's semi-passive, up until 500 watts the fan doesn't turn on. It's very efficient, like you expect from an 80 Plus Gold model. The ripple is a little higher than average, but nothing to be worried about. The voltages remain within the 5 percent margins even at max capacity. The white PSU has a very nice finish as well, with screw-in connectors.

Das Keyboard Model S Review reported at 10:38 AM
category: Keyboards     website: Benchmark Reviews
Article Quote:
"In closing, if asked I would recommend the Das Keyboard, although it may not be in my opinion the best mechanical keyboard on the market it is still a great keyboard. The Das Keyboard Professional provides a great platform for a typist, while looking beautiful (when clean), providing users with media controls, and a USB 2.0 hub."

NZXT Kraken X60 Review reported at 10:33 AM
category: CPU Coolers     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
As things stand currently, the NZXT Kraken X60 is the créme de la créme of the CPU cooler market. It ticks 95% of the right boxes, with exception to the relatively short warranty, and consequently it is close to exceptional. In this sense, I have thoroughly enjoyed testing the NZXT Kraken X60 and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for an ultra high performance CPU cooler. Resultantly, I think the NZXT Kraken X60 is deserving of our Extreme Performance Award because it delivers exactly that….and then some. The only caveat to this comes back to my previously mentioned point – how will the market competition respond to NZXT’s Kraken X60?

Avexir Core DDR3-2400 2x4GB Kit Review reported at 10:30 AM
category: DDR3 Memory     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
"The bottom line is that it’s great to see different manufacturers working together in harmony to produce different components that stylistically work together, as well as physically. Hopefully this trend starts to grow a little more as Avexir take the memory market by the balls and give it a huge shake up."

be quiet Shadow Rock TopFlow Review reported at 10:20 AM
category: CPU Coolers     website: NikKTech
Article Quote:
High quality products rarely come cheap and so the be quiet! Shadow Rock TopFlow SR1 CPU Cooler currently retails for USD76 inside the USA (Amazon Marketplace) and at 42.90Euros inside the EU (Caseking). Certainly the price is not particularly low for a low-profile CPU cooler especially in the USA (currently at least) but for that price you are getting one of the top 3 low-profile CPU Coolers we've ever tested and the most quiet one at that. The only drawback is that the Shadow Rock TopFlow SR1 is not very small and so it may not fit in tiny PC cases like for example the Noctua NH-L9 and the Thermalright AXP-100 but we can't have it all. Good performance, low height and almost inaudible are the three features of the Shadow Rock TopFlow SR1 that won it our Golden Award.

HighPoint RocketStor 5322 Review reported at 10:18 AM
category: Storage Accessories     website: Overclockers Club
Article Quote:
"Pricing is going to come in on the high side when you include the RocketRaid 642L controller. The RocketStor 5322 is going to set you back about $120, with the 642L a little further down the scale but not much at $109. That's about two and a half Benjamins all told. A steep price to pay for sure but what's your data really worth? A warranty of one year is included and is on the short side for the current dynamic in the DIY computer space. Even when you count the warranty out, HighPoint's RocketStor 5322 is a rocking piece of hardware that delivers awesome performance for your dollar."
