DeepCool's Neptwin heatsink was next tested on the Frostytech Mrk.II synthetic thermal test platform with an 85W heat load. Under these test conditions the twin tower heatsink performed quite well, it had little difficulty maintaining a CPU die temperature of just 9.7°C over ambient at stock fan speed and 10.6°C over ambient at reduced fan speed.

OCZ Vertex 3.20 Review reported at 12:19 PM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: Pro-Clockers.com
Article Quote:
With the OCZ Vertex 3.20, we see what will be a very popular trend and that is the reduction in memory NAND size. And it is nice to see OCZ leading this trend as well we have with many of their products. In this case we saw that the drive came up a tidbit short of similar drives like the Kingston V300 but not by much. Being able to see 500MB/s read is still a big deal and we saw that with the Vertex 3.20. With the way that OCZ is always releasing firmware upgrades for their drives I am willing to bet the small gap will get smaller as time goes on. How it stands right here right now the Vertex 3.20 is a good little drive that we would be happy to recommend to others to use.

ZOTAC GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST Review reported at 12:18 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
"Pricing of the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost is fantastic. NVIDIA's recommended price for the 2 GB GTX 650 Ti Boost is only $169, which makes the card the most cost-effective solution on the market by a large margin. ZOTAC does not ask for a price premium for their card, which clearly makes ZOTAC's offering a better choice than the reference design. Looking at other options, the HD 7850 will set you back $180, and it is a bit slower. It does come with a Bioshock Infinite coupon, which could even things out if you are willing to invest some extra time into selling the coupon ($20). It's now on AMD to retrofit its sub-$200 product stack. Want to game at 1080p with a sub-$200 card? Here's your choice."

While I wouldn’t have recommended the older Kingston SSDNow drives over SandForce drives, the V300 has no problems keeping up, while offering a great deal for a very durable drive.

Cooler Master Seidon 240M Review reported at 11:47 AM
category: CPU Coolers     website: ThinkComputers
Article Quote:
Even before I pulled it out of it’s lovely box I had already made up my mind that it couldn’t be anything special and to be frank, I was blown away and shocked by how well it performed. Be it pump design, massively annoying but effective fans or perhaps the “UltraFine Micro Channels” of the blocks heat exchange area this AIO does the job.

HIS Radeon HD 7790 iCooler Turbo Review reported at 11:31 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: Legion Hardware
Article Quote:
As we have always said, it is much better to have a single fast card opposed to a pair of slower cards, and that applies to both Crossfire and SLI multi-GPU technologies. Given the results we cannot recommend 7790 Crossfire cards to gamers and strongly recommend that this technology be limited to use with only flagship GPUs. On the bright side, HIS has created a very impressive little graphics card with the 7790 iCooler Turbo 1GB and should it come in at $150 we highly recommend it to anyone on a tight budget that plans to do a little gaming. The card is well designed, runs cool and looks great, and with a free copy of BioShock Infinite it’s a lot of fun as well.

Corsair Vengeance M65 Review reported at 11:02 AM
category: Mice     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
Gaming is big business and having the best tool for the job can make or break your gaming experience, while this won’t necessarily make you a better gamer it does go a long way to making your gaming experience more enjoyable and the less you have to worry about your peripherals performance and settings, the more you can focus on your mission. I really like this mouse and I think Corsair have hit on a winner here, a verdict I expect many other gamers will agree with.

A4Tech Bloody Gun3 V3 Review reported at 11:01 AM
category: Mice     website: Benchmark Reviews
Article Quote:
"For a gaming mouse with all the features this boasts, it is very economical. It's difficult to get any gaming mouse for that price, much less one with any discernible features. An excellent entry from A4Tech for the budget mouse department."
