SteelSeries Siberia V2 Review reported at 01:56 PM
category: headsets     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
There are many great headsets on the market for around a £100 and this is easily one of the best. While I would like to say “it is the best” I think it really boils down to prefference, some people like the even more outlandish styling or Mad Catz or the brutish but cool look of Razer, or the 90′s look of Logitech (sorry Logitech), while many others will love the allround, accesible styling of the Steelseries range, its very good looking, its very cool to own and you wouldn’t be ashamed to be seen it in (asuming you’ve turned those bright blue LEDS off). Audio performance is literally faultless to my ears, the price isn’t over the top and is actually very good value given the overall build quality and sound quality. Overall I’m blown away by the Siberia V2′s and its why I’m more than I’m happy to award them with the eTeknix Editors Choice Award.

Asus P8Z77-V Review reported at 08:59 AM
category: Socket 1155 Motherboards     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
Asus’ P8Z77-V range is quite a broad one at that and there are many options to consider, ranging from a mATX model through to the P8Z77-V DELUXE which gives even more options in terms of features and specification that seen here, but this means that based on the results seen here today, the prospects are even better as you go up the range. Because of the positioning within the range, its hard to say if there is anything else that I think this board needs, as anything extra is catered for by higher specified boards so in turn I’ll rate this board based on its price point and the features and performance that is given that that level. So with price in mind, ~£145 doesn’t just sound like a bargain, it is. I’ve seen across events such as Multiplay’s Insomnia LANs a number of gamers that don’t see the need to go for a top end board in a modest priced system build as even from their eyes, the performance on the whole is just as good. I couldn’t agree more, when you’re in the mainstream market where price has a lot to say on what you can get overall, a board like this that can give a bit more for its money and also give a few features that other similar offerings lack is highly welcomed, giving higher levels of performance to the masses.

Scythe Ashura Review reported at 08:56 AM
category: CPU Coolers     website: HardwareHeaven
Article Quote:
For performance, as shown above, the Ashura scores well. Temperature wise it competes nicely with larger coolers and noise levels are kept to a minimum thanks to a high quality fan. Overall an impressive cooler for those looking to air cool a mainstream/high end CPU with minimal noise.

MSI Z77A-GD65 Review reported at 08:44 AM
category: Socket 1155 Motherboards     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
I'm in love. Really, it's hard for me to convey how I feel about the MSI Z77A-GD65 GAMING. This Dragon has, in a way, put me under its spell, and I am, in all honesty, not sure why. With the board sitting here next to me, the Dragons of the VRM cooler looking ready to eat my poor 3770K for a snack, the MSI Z77A-GD65 GAMING board presents a well thought-out package with a highly polished design that really puts to shame quite a few boards I've had on my desk in what has been nearly a year since Ivy Bridge first hit the retail market. From the simple, yet complex heatsink design to the new BIOS and its gaming-optimized performance, the MSI Z77A-GD65 is nearly the perfect solution for the base of a high-end gaming platform with one or two GPUs. There's not too much here, but nor is there, at the same, too little.

category: Keyboards     website: Benchmark Reviews
Article Quote:
As long as enthusiasts understand the unique challenges presented by the combined ten key and command cluster, then the CM Storm Quickfire TK provides a great value as a smaller mechanical keyboard. As such, the Quickfire TK with Cherry MX Red switches earns the coveted Benchmark Reviews Golden Tachometer Award.

Asus HD7790-DC2OC-1GD5 review reported at 04:33 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: HardOCP
Article Quote:
"The Radeon HD 7790 is good at providing better performance than the Radeon HD 7770, and now at $150 it is the AMD video card to buy. Certainly, it provides a lot of performance at a small price. We also have to understand, it can't reach the toes of the Radeon HD 7850, AMD still has to think about where that sits in the market and it can't have the HD 7790 overtaking the HD 7850."
