QNAP TS-469L Review reported at 10:37 AM
category: Storage Accessories     website: Legion Hardware
Article Quote:
The QNAP TS-469L does everything it sets out to do very well. The Turbo Station software is now extremely powerful and certainly rivals the DiskStation Manager software from Synology. The installation process has been well refined and it makes setup for novice users much easier. If there was one thing we could change about the TS-469L it would be the price, it’s just a little too rich for our blood given what else is out there. Still, having said that we are going to give the QNAP TS-469L our must have hardware award.

Article Quote:
Bottom line, the DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 G3 is one of the best non-HyperX drives that we’ve seen from Kingston to date, based not only on its clean & refined looks, but also its outstanding performance and excellent price point.

Antec High Current Pro HCP-1000 Review reported at 10:26 AM
category: Power Supplies     website: NikKTech
Article Quote:
Of course at the end of the day the money required to purchase a powerful PSU like the HCP-1000 is nothing compared to the money some of the best graphics cards cost so for people who can actually put 1KW of power to good use i really don't think that such a price tag can be considered an issue. Thanks to its 80Plus Platinum Certification, completely modular design, OC link feature, rail stability and 7 years warranty the HCP-1000 is truly one of the top power supply units in the market currently and that's why it gets our Platinum Award.

MSI Big Bang Z77 MPower Review reported at 10:03 AM
category: Socket 1155 Motherboards     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
Bottom line, if you’re after a great starting block to a medium budget build that can still give a lot of poke or you’re after a board to theme your system with, MSI’s Z77 MPower really ticks all the boxes in my books.

Mid-Range AMD Graphics Card Roundup (HIS 7770 GHz / HIS 7850 / Sapphire 7850) reported at 10:00 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: KitGuru
Article Quote:
The HIS 7770 GHz Edition IceQ X Turbo 1GB graphics card showed good out-of-the-box performance, thanks to its factory-applied frequency boost, and good memory overclocking headroom. The card’s IceQ X cooler is able to quietly keep the card cool, but it isn’t anything out of the ordinary, in comparison to competing manufacturers’ models. With an effective cooling solution and efficient power components, HIS’ 7850 IceQ is a card which is let down by its current price and awkward form factor. Our sample’s core overclocking headroom was also disappointing, but this could be the individual card, not the entire series. The Sapphire 7850 Dual-X 1GB graphics card’s design is very good. Sapphire uses a non-reference, but very popular, PCB design which shrinks the board’s length to just 206mm. Instead of taking HIS’ approach, Sapphire has designed the cooler around the PCB, meaning that it is a perfect fit and doesn’t cause any interference issues.

Noctua NH-L9i Review reported at 09:49 AM
category: CPU Coolers     website: Hardcoreware
Article Quote:
Whether it’s worth the hefty $50 price tag is up to you to decide. Builds requiring such a specific type of cooler are generally considered high-end, so in that case it may be worth it. If the NH-L9i fits your specific needs, and you have the cash to spare, you won’t be disappointed in its performance, that’s for sure.
