Noctua NF-S12A FLX Review reported at 11:45 AM
category: Case Cooling Solutions     website: Pro-Clockers.com
Article Quote:
Once again we see that Noctua continued to take fan development to the next level. After the NF-F12 series, I really thought there was nothing more to add to this fan series from Noctua. I mean they were able to keep the fans quiet and performance well under various cooling situations. I believe Noctua is just on a quest to give their fans (buyers) more options and more value for their money. This shows in the newer Noctua NF-S12A series. Each fan is given a new set of features and technical specifications with the only difference between them are the rotation speeds. Noctua is continuing to produce winners and we really enjoy bringing them to you.

If your building a budget low cost mid tower, this is a case you should look at. I build budget systems for my veteran brothers and sisters and this case will be in the choice list hence my MUST HAVE rating.

Intel DC S3500 Review reported at 11:42 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: Tom's Hardware
Article Quote:
It's not that there's anything inherently wrong with the S3500, but it doesn't out-muscle Seagate's new 600 Pro. That's not to say Intel's latest won't sell well; believe us, it will. So, if you need a very specific capacity or form factor, you'll probably find an SSD DC S3500 able to meet your specifications. For everyone else, there is Seagate's 600 Pro.

Cooler Master Storm QuickFire TK Review reported at 10:56 AM
category: Keyboards     website: APH Networks
Article Quote:
The only problem with this keyboard is the lack of a dedicated arrow and navigation key section. This makes it hard to use the keyboard for anything other than gaming. Every time you have to use the number pad, you will have to disable the arrow keys, and vice versa. For the sake of portability, something has to be sacrificed, but I guess having this option is better than not having the number pad at all. Retailing for $110 at press time, the Cooler Master Storm QuickFire TK Blue is definitely on the more expensive side. But if you are looking for a portable gaming keyboard with Cherry MX Blue switches, then this is the keyboard for you.

Cooler Master Storm Scout 2 Review reported at 10:52 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: Hardware.Info
Article Quote:
As it is, we can only recommend the Scout II if you use liquid cooling or plan on replacing the fans with better ones. That means that you're better off getting the entry-level model instead of the Advanced, as it will save you a little bit of money. If you don't care as much about looks, another option is the older CM 690 II. It's slightly less expensive, slightly louder, but cools much better.

Logitech UE Boombox Review reported at 10:49 AM
category: Flatpanel     website: Techgage
Article Quote:
Don’t get me wrong, the Boom has its little quibbles – the lack of mobile volume control being a primary (and ridiculous) one; clearly a product of people who focus on their sound rather than their UI. That being said, the worst I could say about any of its faults is to use the word “quibble” – I am genuinely scraping the barrel to come up with something I dislike aside from the overly-trendy marketing and the price.

Crucial M500 Review reported at 10:41 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: Myce
Article Quote:
The Crucial M500 gave an impressively solid performance, and the drive was able to maintain very high overall performance even when it was pushed for more than two hours of continuous read/writes.

EK Water Blocks L360 Review reported at 10:38 AM
category: CPU Coolers     website: ocaholic
Article Quote:
Should you be looking for a custom watercooling kit, then you won't do anything wrong going for the EK-Kit L360. Obviously this kit costs more than an all-in-one solution but for that additional money you also get additional cooling performance.

OCZ Vertex 3.20 Review reported at 10:36 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: HardwareCanucks
Article Quote:
OCZ’s Vertex 3.20 may not be a perfect drive and it needs a slight price reduction in order to bring its price / performance and capacity ratios in line with current realities. However, once that’s done and a bit and a bit of firmware refinement can be thrown into the mix, this is one SSD which could dominate its corner of the value-minded market.

Asustor AS-604T Review reported at 10:17 AM
category: Storage Accessories     website: Benchmark Reviews
Article Quote:
If you need a staggering array of features and 10GbE-class performance, then you need to look elsewhere to meet those needs. If you just need the storage capacity, the high throughput and continuity of service that four bays of RAID 5, 6, or 10 provides, in a small tower package, then the ASUSTOR AS-604T is an excellent candidate for you.

Cooler Master CM Storm QuickFire Stealth Review reported at 10:15 AM
category: Keyboards     website: Overclockers Club
Article Quote:
"In general, the keyboard is just easy to type on. I can get out what I'm trying to write and know immediately when I've made a mistake (well as long as it's a word I can spell or actual punctuation I intend to use – editors, I know you are laughing). It's not the perfect gaming keyboard, but it satisfies my occasional need and since I'm not a big MMO player and don't tend to use macro setups, I'm not too bothered by this. The price is right and the quality is suburb. If you're in the market for a new keyboard and don't mind a missing number pad, the CM Storm Stealth is definitely what you should be looking to order; it is truly another BluePanda Gold member."

SteelSeries Sensei RAW Review reported at 10:10 AM
category: Mice     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
This mouse just works, and the only faults we can point out are that it is still quite expensive at $60 and that the driver suite it comes with happily consumes over 120 MB RAM, which is just incredible for a mouse-driver suite. The price is bound to come down once it hits the streets, but it is, while $60 is a lot for a mouse, already of excellent value at that price!

Patriot Supersonic Magnum Review reported at 10:04 AM
category: Tape/Zip/Jaz Drives     website: Overclock Intelligence Agency
Article Quote:
If you need fast, reliable, and spacious storage on the go, this drive is certainly worth a few moments of your time to consider. After all, a few moments are all it needs to transfer your data anyway.

Asus Gryphon Z87 Review reported at 09:54 AM
category: Socket 1150 Motherboards     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
"I am a bit nonplussed by the ARMOR as a separate purchase, but having seen numerous comments of users on various sites denouncing ASUS's Thermal Armor, I completely understand why ASUS took that route. However, having the complete package in my hands, assembled and tested, has proven to me that the GRYPHON ARMOR kit is a worthy addition most users should not overlook. But this product is new and ASUS wants to make sure all users can embrace it without qualms, so for that I have to accept things as they are, although my own opinion differs here. If you were to ask me whether I would change anything about the ASUS GRYPHON Z87, my answer would be short. There is simply nothing here I would change. If you are looking for a well-built and over-engineered platform for your new Haswell chip, and aren't looking for the highest overclocks but still want to get reasonable overclocked performance, the ASUS GRYPHON Z87 is the board for you."
