Seasonic Platinum Fanless Review reported at 11:14 AM
category: Power Supplies     website: PC Perspective
Article Quote:
Seasonic continues to make incremental improvements to their new Platinum 400/460/520 Fanless power supplies, which result in 80Plus Platinum efficiency, extremely tight voltage regulation, and clean DC outputs. Add to that a 7-year warranty and a good assortment of all modular cables and you have one more very good power supply. Fanless power supplies occupy a niche market and won’t appeal to everyone but if you need/want a truly fanless unit, one of the Seasonic Platinum Series Fanless PSUs will be hard to beat!

category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
"Bottom line, NVIDIA are back on the top spot with the most POWERFUL single GPU card on the market and given that AMD are not releasing any more cards for the rest of this year to take it on, NVIDIA’s GTX Titan is one super graphics card for supercomputer gaming."

NZXT Phantom 630 Review reported at 10:58 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: PureOverclock.com
Article Quote:
Let me sum it up by saying overall, the build quality at this price point, and the abundance of features that have been implemented into the Phantom 630 is really hard to beat.. So if you are in the market for a full tower chassis that’s very well built, I would highly recommend the NZXT Phantom 630 for your next build.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan Review reported at 10:54 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: Hardware.Info
Article Quote:
The GeForce GTX Titan can handle any game in Full HD and maxed out settings. If you only have a single monitor, then a Titan is overkill, as you won't be able to take advantage of all its potential. A GeForce GTX 680 or Radeon HD 7970 can run most games just fine with max settings in Full HD. It's a different story with three monitors. A GeForce GTX 680 or Radeon HD 7970 will quickly run into trouble here, but the Titan was able to provide a smooth gaming experience with high settings on three monitors. Far Cry 3, Crysis 3 and Hitman: Absolution are exceptions here, even the Titan falls short. See, there's a reason why we always test SLI configurations.

OCZ Vector Review reported at 10:48 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: MadShrimps
Article Quote:
For added value, OCZ has also included the cloning software from Acronis, which we have used for some time now, and we find it very useful for transferring even complete Windows partitions, without the need of re-activating the installations.

Western Digital Caviar Black Review reported at 10:48 AM
category: IDE Hard Drives     website: Hardware.Info
Article Quote:
We have to be honest here. The Western Digital Caviar Black 4TB is a bit of a letdown. It came out more than 6 months after the Hitachi 7K4000 4TB, yet the Hitachi is faster, cheaper, quieter and more efficient. Granted, you get five years of warranty from Western Digital, but that's also about its only claim to fame compared to Hitachi here.

SilverStone SUGO SST-SG09 Review reported at 10:44 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
The SG09 is a fairly expensive chassis but not overly so and you can expect to see a little change from £100 at the most popular retailers, but the level of detail and quality that has been put into the chassis design is worth every penny of the asking price. What we have is a rock solid performer from the SG09 and the old saying that good things really can come in small packages rings true. It may not be for everyone in terms of design, but there is a big market for little systems and I expect the SG09 is going to prove very popular in that area.

Intel Core i5-3570K vs. i7-3770K Review reported at 10:39 AM
category: Intel Socket 1155 CPUs     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
The Intel Core i5-3570K provided remarkable performance on all tests and seems to be the processor with the highest performance per Dollar on the market right now. The lack of the Hyper-Threading makes it perform worse than the Intel Core i7-3770K in most benchmarks, but testing in games showed that both processors performance similarly during gaming. What concerned us a bit was that we were unlucky with our sample; it had temperature problems. This happened because the TIM Intel used didn't perform as expected. The advantage of Hyper-Threading makes the Intel Core i7-3770K the most powerful processor of the Ivy Bridge series. With its larger cache and Hyper-Threading it was able to win this comparison against its smaller brother. Also it ran cooler than our i7-3570K, which seems to be due to a known issue with the TIM that Intel used for this series. All in all, the i7-3770K is the king of the Ivy bridge processors. Its only negative point was the low-end iGPU used, which is probable to change with the new "Haswell" series.

Corsair Hydro H90 Review reported at 10:36 AM
category: CPU Coolers     website: Overclockers Club
Article Quote:
Corsair's Hydro series cooling solutions come with a five-year warranty that should alleviate any concerns with galvanic corrosion over the course of the H90's life span. Using an aluminum and copper cooling plate is not the best solution but is needed to meet the price point to go to market. If it has a five-year warranty and the average upgrade cycle is three years, then it should last until at least the next upgrade cycle. All in all I have to say I am pleased with the cooling and noise level performance delivered by the Hydro Series H90. It's quiet, offers top notch cooling, and is an easy gateway into the world of full on liquid cooling.
