Asus Maximus VI Formula Review reported at 11:51 AM
category: Socket 1150 Motherboards     website: ocaholic
Article Quote:
At a first glance the Maximus VI Formula definitely leaves an excellent impression. The mix of overclocking features and high quality audio hardware makes this a state-of-the-art motherboard for ATX-gaming. And next to a very nice looking design you find useful features like for example GameFirst. This software allows you to configure your network device the way gaming traffic gets prioritized (keyword traffic shaping). Furthremore you get ASUS' RAM Disk Software and lots of other goodies, which make this board even more appealing. From a design perspective the "ROG Armor" looks excellent. Together with the possibility to watercool the VRMs this board is perfect for modding.

PowerColor Devil HD7870 Review reported at 11:49 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
With a price of $240, the card is certainly not cheap when compared to other HD 7870s starting at around $210. NVIDIA's GTX 660 Ti and GTX 760 clock in at around $250, offering much better gaming performance (+15%) for similar power consumption levels at often less noise with a custom design. However, NVIDIA cards do not include the fantastic AMD Never Settle game bundle which provides a nice selection of games to pick from after you've been out of the loop for a while.

Cooler Master CM Storm QuickFire XT Review reported at 11:43 AM
category: Keyboards     website: Techgage
Article Quote:
"Thus far, all of CM Storm’s mechanical keyboards we’ve reviewed here at Techgage have earned our Editor’s Choice award, and the QuickFire XT easily deserves one as well. If Cooler Master could go ahead and release a subpar plank so we can help even things out, that’d be great."

Samsung 840 EVO Review reported at 11:15 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: Tom's Hardware
Article Quote:
Because we're enthusiasts and enjoy the fastest of pretty much everything, we already know that Samsung's 840 EVO isn't all things to all people. However, it's a product able to satisfy most people, armed with features that they'll both want and use. And Samsung plans to ask a price that millions of customers have already paid for vanilla 840s. With the addition of 750 GB and 1 TB models, the company's mainstream SSD family is pretty darned complete. Left with little else to ask for from an SSD, we're pleased to confer the Tom's Hardware Smart Buy award on Samsung's 840 EVO.

Phanteks PH-TC12DX Review reported at 10:57 AM
category: CPU Coolers     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
The Phanteks PH-TC12DX is a fantastic looking CPU cooler and we really think its high build quality and refreshingly vibrant and colourful aesthetics are its main selling point. Despite having very high quality fans, and a highly compatible design we can’t help but feel the Phanteks PH-TC12DX is let down by relatively mediocre performance that sees it outperformed by much cheaper competitors. The Phanteks PH-TC12DX is by no means a bad product and I think this CPU cooler should still be popular, and rightly so given how awesome it looks. Yet performance lets it down and in my eyes that means it doesn’t get an award from us today.

Asus RT-AC66U Review reported at 10:55 AM
category: Internet Routers     website: Benchmark Reviews
Article Quote:
This product is definitely at the high end for wireless routers, but any router that has a similar feature set is going to have a similar price. In terms of value, I don’t know that the extra speed that you get with the RT-AC66U makes it a worthwhile investment. But I’ve got DSL service from my ISP instead of fiber and only a few users that need to connect wirelessly, so YMMV. For me, the increased coverage and the stability of the Wi-Fi connection in difficult locations is what makes it worth the price of admission.

Gigabyte G1.Sniper 5 Review reported at 10:48 AM
category: Socket 1150 Motherboards     website: MadShrimps
Article Quote:
The Gigabyte G1.Sniper 5 motherboard we have covered in this review comes fully packed with an awesome number of features and through these we could include the Sound Blaster Core3D audio, the latest Killer E2200 NIC or the 16-phase solid VRM. Speaking of the VRM, this is also covered by a massive themed heatsink which also acts as a water block and is extra cooled by a small fan. The Wi-Fi assembly also supports Bluetooth 4.0 technology and features an external antenna, which is much more stylish than the one we have seen at the last ASRock motherboard we have reviewed. A really unique feature is the replaceable operational amplifier; the necessary IC extractor tool is included so we won’t damage it during the switch. Also, the audio circuits are isolated from the rest of the board as we have seen with the offering from BIOSTAR and the line which splits the two is lighted up with bright green LEDs, controllable via UEFI.

Samsung 840 EVO Review reported at 10:42 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: ocaholic
Article Quote:
The 840 Evo is a well performing drive, that features a highly competitive price tag. But actually, the 840 Evo is more than just another drive with an improved firmware. Samsung has also been working on their Magician software. Meanwhile Magician is very well structured and unexperienced users as well as enthusiasts will like it. Form the perspective of a novice the most important information is being display on the first splash screen and enthusiasts can dig deeper. It's even possible to control TRIM and overprovisioning yourself.

Cougar Spike Mini Review reported at 10:21 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: DarkVision Hardware
Article Quote:
With a retail price of around $34.99 the Cougar Spike delivers a very good price/performance ratio. It's a great budget case for anyone seeking to build a compact Micro-ATX gaming rig - it's affordable but doesn't feel too cheap. Spike is not particularly feature-rich, but offers a good overall build quality and most of the features you really need.

Raijintek Aidos & Themis Review reported at 10:17 AM
category: CPU Coolers     website: NikKTech
Article Quote:
Now i don't know about all of you but it has been a while since I’ve seen such prices for tower CPU Air Coolers with adequate performance levels (cooling our 6-core overclocked power hungry beast is not a small feat) and because of that both the Aidos and the Themis come highly recommended by us for casual users and gamers who don't want to spend much and are looking for the optimal price/performance ratio.
