MSI Z87 MPower MAX Review reported at 05:49 PM
category: Socket 1150 Motherboards     website: Overclockers Club
Article Quote:
All in all I was pleased with what MSI brought to the table with the Z87 MPOWER MAX. It compared well with the rest of the boards I have looked at and is fully capable of delivering as much performance as your components will allow. At $259, MSI's MPOWER MAX is not a low buck option but does allow you to get your money's worth. When it comes to the end of the road and it's your money on the line, you really cannot go wrong with the MPOWER MAX!

Crucial Ballistix Sport XT DDR3-1866 2x8GB Kit Review reported at 11:07 AM
category: DDR3 Memory     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
The Crucial Ballistix Sport XT provides an interesting choice with decent headroom (a rock-solid 233 MHz with my sample) for overclocking, but that headroom apparently does not increase with more voltage. That might be due to my test platform, but seems to also be a common facet of all Micron-IC built sticks. There at least was some headroom, up a couple of memory dividers, rather than none at all. I'm going to keep the Crucial Ballistix Sport XT kit around for some time, and it's one AMD users might want to pay more attention to--more so than Intel users.

ZOTAC ZBOX Nano ID64 Plus Review reported at 11:00 AM
category: Small Form Factor     website: Hardware.Info
Article Quote:
Zotac's Zbox Nano Plus does have an edge over the somewhat smaller Gigabyte Brix and Intel Next Unit of Computing. The only limitation really is the single RAM slot. However, for most typical applications 4 or 8 GB is plenty, so only if you want to build a mini workstation or want to work with virtualization should you consider this an issue.

Asus GeForce GTX 770 DirectCU II Review reported at 10:31 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: Bjorn3D
Article Quote:
Overall the ASUS GTX 770 gets our top recommendations for being one mean card with plenty of performance left to be discovered and at only a 10 dollar price difference, it would be silly not to consider it.

Corsair Carbide Air 540 Review reported at 10:25 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: MadShrimps
Article Quote:
CORSAIR has managed to create one of the ultimate cooling enclosures for hardware enthousiasts. With this cube size shaped Carbide 540 Air, the Fremont giant has got another killer case on offer. Looks are subjective, but the layout remains quite loyal to the other Carbide series, simplistic yet stylish. The boxed cooling potential is massive, as is the expandibility for the watercooling purists. Storage wise the options are limited, nevertheless two 3.5 large storage drives are more then plenty for most.

Nanoxia Deep Silence 2 Review reported at 10:22 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: Hardware.Info
Article Quote:
This chassis has a good foundation as an affordable chassis, but you really need to add more fans to improve the cooling. That costs money, which prevents us from giving it the Bronze Award.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 770 Windforce 3X Review reported at 10:18 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: HardwareCanucks
Article Quote:
While we run the risk of sounding like a broken record, the WindForce 3X OC deserves the praise being heaped on it. This GTX 770 thoroughly outclasses more expensive GPUs without costing a penny more than a reference card, is quiet and still has room to overclock. Not only does this make Gigabyte’s $399 offering an enticing option for budget-minded gamers but it also makes reference GTX 770 cards all but obsolete.

Toshiba Nearline MG03ACA400 Review reported at 10:13 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: NikKTech
Article Quote:
"At the end of the day the only real drawback the Toshiba Nearline MG03ACA400 4TB SATA III HDD has is its price tag since it currently retails at around USD360 inside the USA and at around 340Euros inside the EU. The reason we are saying that is because the current price tag places the Nearline MG03ACA400 4TB HDD above the Enterprise Capacity V3 3.5 (AKA Constellation ES.3) 4TB drive by Seagate and that was not something we were expecting. Certainly there's always a possibility that a manufacturer knows more than we do and sets the price based on that but on the other hand we can only judge things based on what we know and since the Enterprise Capacity V3 3.5 4TB HDD is quite faster and has a way higher MTBF we can only hope that Toshiba will change their pricing policy for the Nearline MG03ACA400 4TB SATA III HDD. Still we can't deny that the MG03ACA400 is not only very fast but it also features low temperatures and noise levels and comes with the build quality we know Toshiba offers and that's enough for it to get our Golden Award."
