AMD Radeon 7870 vs NVIDIA GeForce 660 Frame Times Comparison reported at 12:03 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: Hardcoreware
Article Quote:
In my opinion, as of right now, the card to get is the Radeon 7870, provided you can get one that is well clocked for under $250. If you see a great deal on the GeForce 660 though, you might want to consider that instead. It all depends on how strict your budget is.

TP-Link TL-WDR4900 Review reported at 11:46 AM
category: Internet Routers     website: Hardware.Info
Article Quote:
"The TL-WDR4900 is TP-Link's best router we've tested, and it's faster than both the WDR3600 and the WDR4300. The range of features available on the WDR4900 is also good, even if we do miss the guest network option. Other than that we are very positive about the TL-WDR4900, and can definitely recommend it. It's higher pricepoint takes it out of the budget category, however, so we can't give it the Bronze award. A Silver Award is therefore appropriate for the TL-WDR4900, because it's an excellent router."

Phanteks PH-F120S & PH-F140TS Review reported at 11:36 AM
category: Case Cooling Solutions     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
I was quite impressed by the performance on offer from the PF-F120S and in relation to the acoustic performance this was actually pretty decent. The build quality and overall design of the fan was also excellent. However, I am slightly disappointed that Phanteks do not include any adaptors. Unfortunately as we mentioned there were some issues with the Phanteks PF-F140TS in the sense that the bearings on both our samples made very strange and loud noises that are not normal to hear from a fan.

LEPA G850-MAS Review reported at 11:33 AM
category: Power Supplies     website: Modders-Inc
Article Quote:
"My overall impression of the LEPA G850-MAS 80 PLUS Gold Certified Power Supply is that it’s right on par with the other top quality PSUs available out there at even higher prices. Nope, I would not hesitate for one second to run the LEPA G850-MAS 80 PLUS Gold Certified Power Supply in my primary gaming rig. … I guess you can say it even earns my little add in saying, “The LEPA G850-MAS 80 PLUS Gold Certified Power Supply flat out ROCKS!”"

NZXT Phantom 630 Review reported at 11:08 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: HardwareCanucks
Article Quote:
As with all NZXT cases of late, graceful lines hide a highly capable interior layout which is spacious spacious and well thought out, with more than enough room for enthusiasts. The wiring cut outs are the stars of this show since they are fabricated out of supple rubber and do an excellent job of holding cables in place. NZXT has even upgraded the toolless mounting brackets, the hard drive cages and water cooling options are top notch. All in all, this could just be the perfect mid tower case.

Kingston HyperX 3K Review reported at 11:07 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
While synthetic testing shows the HyperX 3K to be lagging a bit behind on performance compared to its older non-3K sibling, real-life performance data shows that the drive is consistently faster. This is quite surprising, since even Kingston positioned the drive on a slower performance level. Our testing with the blue non-3K model was conducted on almost the same firmware version as the HyperX 3K (5.03 vs. 5.04), so I'm not exactly sure what causes the better results. Nevertheless, when averaged, the Kingston HyperX 3K ends up 3% faster than the previous model, which makes it the fastest MLC SandForce SSD we tested so far. However, drives using different controllers, like the Samsung 830, 840 Pro, and OCZ Vector, all end up a few percent faster than the HyperX 3K, but the differences are relatively small.
