Intel HD 4600 vs. AMD A10-5800/6800K vs. GPU Review reported at 06:03 PM
category: Socket FM2     website: ocaholic
Article Quote:
Overall we can say that Intel's HD 4600 IGP is suitable for casual gaming at 1280 x 1024 resolution with low graphics details. In certain cases it would even be possible to increase the detail level but in other cases is would also make sense to set an even lower resolution. What you really shouldn't expect are miracles: the HD 4600 is an improvemtn over the HD 4000 but it's certainly not a revolution. It will be very interesting to see what the HD 5200 Pro is capable of. Since we've seen an almost linear scaling from HD 4000 to HD 4600, when comparing performance numbers with the number of execution units, we would expect HD 5200 Pro to be more than twice as fast than HD 4600. In this case you could then even consider to choose a higher resolution than 1280 x 1024 in games our increase the detail level significantly.

Antec/Cooler Master/Nexus 500W PSU Roundup reported at 06:00 PM
category: Power Supplies     website: Hardware.Info
Article Quote:
When you compare the three PSUs from this review to our favorites in the 500-550W segment, you'll see that the Seasonic G-Series 550W performs better in every aspect, but it's also far more expensive. The Cooler Master Silent Pro M2 performs about the same as the Nexus, it's modular but also more expensive. The XFX Pro Series 550W Core is a strong competitor for the Nexus PSU. The price, efficiency, voltages and ripple are almost identical. However, the Nexus one is inaudible under low loads, which puts it on top. It's therefore one of our new favorites for this segment, and the Nexus NX-5000 V1 earns the Silver Award.

Corsair Obsidian 350D Review reported at 05:49 PM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: HardwareCanucks
Article Quote:
What makes the 350D unique is the support for dual 240mm/280mm radiators for either the top or the front areas, provided the drive cage is removed. This opens up potential to watercool an entire system inside this mATX chassis. Naturally, Corsair also includes plenty of cable routing options and other features as well.

Cooler Master CM Storm Scout 2 Advanced Review reported at 12:59 PM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
The CM Storm Scout 2 non-Advanced came out at the 99 U.S dollar/89 euro mark. It has since then dropped in price, giving Cooler Master/CM Storm the ability to offer the Scout 2 Advanced for less than 80 euros, which makes it a much more interesting buy. It is a different story in the US as the basic variant sells for 89 U.S. dollars excluding taxes while the Advanced still clocks in at above 100 U.S. dollars at Newegg. So pricing is not quite on par there yet. Our first sample, the gunmetal grey version, only came with a single 120 mm fan in the back, but the Advanced series is equipped with a total of three. Cooler Master has chosen to offer two version of the chassis, with the "Advanced" variant including two additional cooling units for a 15-20 euro premium. That said, the CM Storm Scout 2 is actually a really good buy for the price! It offers excellent construction quality, an engineered handle, and a flawless paint job. Users will also get some good use out of the LED on/off switch as the Advanced has two LED fans attached to it. All the usual features, like the extruded side panels, detachable side wall of the hard-drive bay, and removable top cover, are there, just like in the non-Advanced version, but the interior is still quite simple. However, all of this can now be had for less than the original Scout 2 when it hit retail. Pretty cool, Cooler Master, pretty cool.

ASRock Z87E-ITX Review reported at 12:59 PM
category: Socket 1150 Motherboards     website: Benchmark Reviews
Article Quote:
"Beyond any doubt the ASRock Z87E-ITX motherboard is an expensive solution. It’s not the most expensive ITX motherboard on the market (Maximus VI Impact takes that crown) but you need to decide if the extra features merit the cost. $164.99 (NewEgg | Amazon) would be considered high for an ATX motherboard, but you also have to bear in mind that condensing the features of an ATX motherboard into the ITX form factor is not an easy task."
