AZIO Levetron GH808 Review reported at 11:43 AM
category: headsets     website: Overclockers Club
Article Quote:
"The GH808 clearly have substantial gaming prowess even if they lack fidelity in more serious listening sessions. It's hard to discount the real impact imparted by the vibration drivers when playing games; it's pretty hard to ignore a gunshot when it is literally shaking your head. Combined with the extremely attractive casing it's hard to complain too much about this $42 headset. If you play games and you don't use your headset for critical listening, it's time for an upgrade. No, seriously, go get these. At $42 they're a steal!"

AMD HD 7870 GHz Edition vs. Nvidia GTX 660 Frametimes Review reported at 11:26 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: Hardware.Info
Article Quote:
The conclusion is much more clearcut this time compared to the other two frametime tests we did. Based on the render times of individual frames, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 is most definitely better than the AMD Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition. In Assassin's Creed 3 the GTX 660 is faster, and the game is playable on its highest settings with Nvidia's card, something that can't be said of AMD's card. In Far Cry 3 the Nvidia card has much more stable render times, while the AMD card experiences peaks. It's the same story with Hitman: Absolution, consistent times for Nvidia, lots of variation for AMD. In Battlefield 3 and Max Payne 3 the two cards perform equally well.

Corsair Hydro H90 & H110 Review reported at 11:14 AM
category: CPU Coolers     website: HardwareCanucks
Article Quote:
The $99 H90 should have been an excellent alternative to NZXT’s own $99 X40 but the lack of fan control severely handicaps it. Enthusiasts want as much control as possible over their components and Corsair simply doesn’t offer that here. Nor does the H90 offer good value for your money so we recommend you look towards the aforementioned X40 or H80i instead. On the other hand, Corsair’s H110 was impressive in nearly every respect, particularly when you consider it uses lower speed fans than the other coolers featured in this review. This results in a slightly quieter acoustical profile. Its radiator has the ability to disperse a ridiculous amount of heat, a 5 year warranty guarantees worry-free performance and a price of $129 undercuts NZXT’s X60. Whether or not it is right for you will ultimately come down to features rather than overall performance.

SteelSeries Apex [RAW] Review reported at 11:07 AM
category: Keyboards     website: HardwareHeaven
Article Quote:
"This is a board designed for those who cannot afford, or do not need that type of product. With that in mind the APEX RAW offers a decent experience for a standard gaming board. It is lightweight without feeling flimsy and has no significant build quality issues (even if our early review sample did have a few scuffs etc). We would have liked a little extra power across the backlighting and feel it wouldn't have been too much to ask for a braided cable on the RAW edition but otherwise we have no complaints on the quality/pricing balance."

Seasonic Platinum Fanless Review reported at 10:53 AM
category: Power Supplies     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
To sum up: If you have the money, the SS-460FL is one of the best fanless units available on the market right now. Its performance is on par with that of its bigger brother, the SS-520FL for an additional 15 bucks. You better spend those extra dollars on the latter if you need another 60 watts, but the smaller unit does, otherwise, look like the ideal choice for a mid-range system.

Swiftech H220 Review reported at 10:52 AM
category: CPU Coolers     website: ThinkComputers
Article Quote:
"So what does it take to produce the best AIO cooling system on the market? Well it helps to have over 10 years of experience in liquid cooling, but I think it could be best attributed to the 3 years of R&D that Swiftech has invested into this product. What we have here is a masterpiece of critical thinking and engineering coming together to give us an extraordinary cooling product."

Rosewill Armor Evo Review reported at 10:44 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: Benchmark Reviews
Article Quote:
"If all you need to do is move massive amounts of air, this case will do it. Therein lies the value problem - there are lots of other cases out there that will accomplish this as well while adding a couple more features (either hotswap bays, fan controllers, latching panels, etc.). For the launch price of $119, I simply would not be able to strongly recommend this enclosure over the available alternatives."
