SilverStone Strider Gold ST65F-G Review reported at 12:00 PM
category: Power Supplies     website: APH Networks
Article Quote:
Being a power supply that falls within the 500W to 700W range, it has many natural competitors. SilverStone alone has five products within this wattage specification. To stand out within this saturated market is no easy task. The SilverStone Strider Gold ST65F-G 650W manages to do so with an 80 Plus Gold certification and 100% fully modular design; all in a small package for tight case interiors such as HTPCs. The only downside is the steep price tag, but as they always say, you pay for what you get.

Seagate Laptop Thin SSHD Review reported at 11:50 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: PC Perspective
Article Quote:
Seagate appears to be leading the way in the mobile Hybrid drive market. Each and every generation has pushed the envelope further and come closer to native SSD speeds. The catch is those speeds are only attained for data that is in the cache, and the meager 8GB of flash seems to be holding these devices back when in the hands of more demanding power users with heavier workloads. While we'd like to see a larger caches in future models, the current Seagate SSHD yields outstanding performance in a very small package, and does so at a very competitive price.

Shuttle DS61 Review reported at 11:47 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
The DS61 is a tough slim-PC for rough environments—mainly industrial ones. Its looks surely aren't that appealing, but its construction, especially its metal chassis, will allow it to operate flawlessly in extreme conditions of up to 50°C ambient. Not many PC systems, especially of such small size, can handle so much abuse. The small SD61 does, on top of that, come at an affordable price given its features.

Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H Review reported at 11:41 AM
category: Socket 1155 Motherboards     website: Hardcoreware
Article Quote:
So yes, the Z77X-UD5H is our Editor’s Choice, both in what we want to use when we need to test hardware, and our top recommendation for an air or water cooled full ATX Ivy Bridge system.

be quiet Dark Rock 2 Review reported at 11:38 AM
category: CPU Coolers     website: Hardware.Info
Article Quote:
The cooling performance of the Be Quiet Dark Rock 2 was disappointingly poor, but we really like the design and the fact that it's such a silent cooler.

SilverStone Argon AR03 Review reported at 11:37 AM
category: CPU Coolers     website: Pro-Clockers.com
Article Quote:
"Here at Pro-Clockers, we were really surprised at the level of performance the new SilverStone AR03 cooler presented to us. The surprise came when we tested the cooler with an overclocked processor and using 1500 RPM fan speeds. The efficiency was comparable to that of the bigger SilverStone Heligon HE01 cooler we recently tested. Also during the same testing, we found the best performance-to-noise ratio. The fan did make some noise but it blended well with the dual fan of our ASUS GTX 560 Ti we were also using. So, it didn’t bother us at all."

Thermaltake eSPORTS Black Element Combat White Review reported at 11:28 AM
category: Mice     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
"So overall it’s not the best gaming mouse ever made, but it does pack enough features to beat just about anything else within this price range and that’s obviously a good thing. If you’re looking for a mouse that performs just as well in day to day tasks as well as it does in gaming and you are on a tighter budget, £35 is hardly going to break the bank and at the very least this is one seriously cool looking mouse."

A-DATA DashDrive Elite UE700 Review reported at 11:23 AM
category: Tape/Zip/Jaz Drives     website: ThinkComputers
Article Quote:
"When it comes to performance the UE700 is one of the fastest USB 3.0 flash drives we have tested. No one wants to be waiting around for files to transfer. USB 3.0 is so much faster than USB 2.0, you are going to instantly notice the difference when you start using this drive."

Western Digital My Passport Enterprise Review reported at 11:11 AM
category: Tape/Zip/Jaz Drives     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
"Overall I’m very impressed with not only Western Digital’s My Passport line of drives, but their certification on the enterprise level for Windows To Go, whilst the enterprise drive is a little more pricey that a standard My Passport drive, its use with Windows To Go soon pays off, giving users the flexibility and convenience to take their work wherever they go. The only think I can think of as a suggestion is for a small sleeve type case for the drive as well as the optional rugged case – this could be used to not only protect the drive but also store the USB 3.0 cable as well."

Thermaltake eSPORTS Theron Review reported at 10:53 AM
category: Mice     website: NikKTech
Article Quote:
Compared to 16 months ago right now the price tag of the Theron is extremely tempting and so because of its design and all of its features specifications i really think it's a steal especially since there aren't many gaming mice in the market currently that can offer the same (lightning fast speed, great grip, excellent gliding). Bottom line although 16 months have gone by since the Theron battle ready gaming mouse was introduced in the market it has once again proven to us that it has nothing to be jealous of other newer models and for that it receives our Golden award.

Corsair CX600M Review reported at 10:52 AM
category: Power Supplies     website: HardwareHeaven
Article Quote:
What can't really be faulted is the performance provided for the price range. The CX600M gives is decent readings across the board with efficiency and ripple being particularly impressive. It is also fair to say that Corsair have managed to find a nice balance of features to go with this performance by adding in modular cables... something which makes building a PC a much easier and more tidy process.

PowerColor TurboDuo HD7790 1GB GDDR5 OC Review reported at 10:34 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: MadShrimps
Article Quote:
The TurboDuo 7790 1GB card from PowerColor is also overclocked from the factory, as the XFX version, but the memory frequency was left at the default of 1500MHz. Because of that, we have seen benchmarks scores and FPS that are a little lower than the Black Edition, but again, the difference is very little.

category: Keyboards     website: Benchmark Reviews
Article Quote:
The Knucker gaming keyboard isn't going to appeal to everyone, but if you are just starting out or can't afford a mechanical keyboard then the Knucker would be a great choice that you won't regret.

Intel SSD 525 Review reported at 10:05 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: HardwareCanucks
Article Quote:
Even with a three year warranty, the new 525 Series are excellent mSATA drives. If you are looking for one of the best mSATA upgrades available on the market today, either the 120GB or 180GB version deserves serious consideration. Currently, they’re almost impossible to beat from a performance per dollar perspective.

Seagate Laptop Thin SSHD Review reported at 10:03 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: HardwareCanucks
Article Quote:
If you need a 7mm form factor storage drive and either 90GB of SSD space will not be enough or an additional $30 puts 120GB SSD’s outside your budget, the new Seagate 500GB Laptop SSHD Thin would be a viable choice. For everyone else, there are simply better solutions to spend your upgrade budget on.

Cougar Spike Mini Review reported at 10:02 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: HardwareCanucks
Article Quote:
The Cougar Spike does make some trade-offs that we haven’t mentioned in this quick rundown but all in all, this is a great mini tower chassis that comes in at an amazing price.

MSI N650Ti-1GD5/OC BE Review reported at 10:01 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
The GTX 650 Ti Boost Gaming is available online for $175, which is just a $5 premium over the NVIDIA reference design—absolutely worth it. Given the performance increase out of the box and this reasonable price increase, the card actually delivers better performance per Dollar than the reference design, so there really is no catch. Other cards, like the EVGA GTX 650 Ti SC, are clocked higher and run higher boost clocks but also cost more and are not as quiet. The GeForce GTX 660 non-Ti cards start at $200, which is another $25 spent, but they provide higher performance and include a Metro: Last Light coupon. When looking at what AMD offers, the HD 7850 is a bit slower and costs about as much as the MSI GTX 650 Ti Boost (but it includes a Bioshock Infinite coupon).
