Cooler Master V1000 Review reported at 12:13 PM
category: Power Supplies     website: Pro-Clockers.com
Article Quote:
"We all know the power and performance is there but you can’t take away from the visual aspect of the unit. The visually is appealing and doesn’t draw much attention. The branding is there and is clearly visible but no way over the top. It’s done in such a way that would the V1000 stamped on the sides is classy. The modular cables are brand so way with the rest of the system. All wiring and cables are black. In all other power supplies you can see the different color wirings at the end mainly the 24-pin cable, not the case with the V1000. All those little wires are black."

Sapphire Radeon HD 7790 2GB OC Review reported at 11:34 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: Hardware.Info
Article Quote:
In Full HD resolution, for which the Radeon HD 7790 is intended, 2GB does not have any added value over 1 GB. So you're better off getting the 1 GB version and saving a little money. The Radeon HD 7790 2GB cost about the same as the Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost, but Nvidia's card is the better of the two, both in terms of framerates and frametimes.

A-DATA XPG Xtreme DDR3-2133 2x8GB Dual Channel Kit Review reported at 11:33 AM
category: DDR3 Memory     website: Modders-Inc
Article Quote:
The ADATA XPG DDR 3 memory kit clearly leads the tests at DDR3 2133. Our tests how that ADATA lags behind the Kingston kit when it is timed the same as the Kingston Hyper X kit. Here’s the thing, this kit was not designed to run at those settings and is non standard settings for this kit. Which for the most part, I expected. Running at DDR3 2133 the ADATA kit has the advantage. Although some lower timings would be nice, in reality unless you are on the extreme end of the scale, you most likely will not notice the higher timings but will benefit from the higher speeds. Best of all it fits under most high performance tower coolers!.

Ineo Alienvibes W601 Review reported at 11:27 AM
category: 3 Piece Systems     website: ThinkComputers
Article Quote:
There really is not that much I can say bad about the W601 Speaker System. Right now you can pick it up at my favorite online retailer for $149.99. At that price I think you are getting a great speaker system that can not only be used for your PC, but has other applications as well.

be quiet Dark Rock Pro 2 Review reported at 10:58 AM
category: CPU Coolers     website: Hardcoreware
Article Quote:
Performance wise and appearance wise, it seems like the be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 2 has absolutely nailed it. It looks amazing, at least in my subjective opinion, and performs just as well as the Noctua NH-D14, our top recommended air cooler.

GELID Black Edition Review reported at 10:26 AM
category: CPU Coolers     website: Hardware.Info
Article Quote:
The Gelid Black Edition is an excellent tower CPU cooler with a quality design and finish. Even a slightly overclocked Socket 2011 processor is kept below 50 degrees. But the Black Edition isn't the only cooler capable of this, and it fails to really set itself apart from the competition. Its performance is above-average, but nothing more. Its efficiency is average for Socket 1155 and slightly above-average for Socket 2011.

Toshiba DT01ACA300 Review reported at 10:24 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: MadShrimps
Article Quote:
"The new DT01ACA300 3TB drives from Toshiba are quite speedy and more importantly, they are some of the cheapest on the market with this capacity. Because of this, we won’t hesitate to recommend them to the mainstream which needs higher storage capacity in their computers or simply has bought recently a NAS with 2 or 4 bays and wants to fill it out."

ROCCAT Roundup: Mice, Mousepad, and Bungee reported at 10:17 AM
category: Mice     website: Overclockers Club
Article Quote:
Overall, the goodies from ROCCAT were generally impressive, despite the daunting cost associated with buying a ROCCAT product. Both mice were well worth the extra penny, and having the different size options available literally at my fingertips was a great experience; size really does matter.

A-DATA XPG SX300 Review reported at 10:16 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: HardwareHeaven
Article Quote:
The use of the custom firmware to reduce the NAND space used for redundancy will also benefit those using portable systems where storage space is at a premium. This change in storage level doesn't seem to impact performance though as the drive easily hits the levels we would expect from a desktop based Sandforce drive. Peak speeds are great on the SX300, media use isn't quite as strong (really only likely to affect video editors) but real world use is otherwise very competitive. That said we should also note that if adding this drive in to replace a mechanical drive, or in addition to one, the video performance will be hugely improved by the ADATA model.
