Cooler Master CM Storm QuickFire XT Review reported at 02:02 PM
category: Keyboards     website: LanOC
Article Quote:
The Quickfire XT comes in at an MSRP of 89.99, a price that is very competitive against other enthusiast focused keyboards and frankly I doubt you will find many that compete with the XT’s styling.

Gigabyte Brix Review reported at 01:59 PM
category: Small Form Factor     website: TechSpot
Article Quote:
With such high pricing, NUC barebones systems still don't seem quite ready for primetime. That isn't to say nobody should own a Brix -- just not those who can't directly benefit from its impressively diminutive body. Although the machine is fast enough for general use, we'd be fools not to recommend one of the better value options over Intel/Gigabyte's solution to small-form-factor computing.

Corsair Vengeance K65 Review reported at 01:50 PM
category: Keyboards     website: ocaholic
Article Quote:
"From the point of view of the ergonomics, the keyboard is very comfortable to use, but a wrist rest would be appreciated. The K65 is equipped with Cherry MX Red mechanical switches, which react in a precise and linear way. Throughout our test session, the keyboard has never shown any issues. The Cherry MX keys are well known for their ability to withstand 50 million keystrokes without breaking a sweat."

Seagate 600 SSD Review reported at 12:15 PM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: NikKTech
Article Quote:
"Lightning fast performance coupled with the name of one of the leading manufacturers of storage devices and at an somewhat attractive price tag, what more can one ask for? Because of all of the above the Seagate 600 SSD 240GB (ST240HM000) walks away with our Golden Award."

XFX Double Dissipation Radeon HD 7950 Review reported at 12:04 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: Benchmark Reviews
Article Quote:
"My conclusion: the XFX Radeon HD 7950 Black Double-Dissipation graphics card (model FX-795A-TDF) is ideal for standalone installations, however multi-card CrossFire sets are possible in enclosures with above average ventilation and cooling. This video card already runs cool under full load, so there’s little need for excessive case cooling for single-card installations. Even with a rebate, the XFX Radeon HD 7950 Black DD still has room for better pricing. It’s a good card at $315, a solid buy at $300, but it would really clear shelves at $275."

ASRock Z87 Extreme6/ac Review reported at 11:32 AM
category: Socket 1150 Motherboards     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
"The ASRock Z87 Extreme6/ac was, fundamentally, rather boring. It worked fine but wasn't anything special, other than for the huge amount of connectivity it features at a decent price. However, I also found it to be underperforming while drawing a bit too much power for the low performance. That performance was weirdly low in a clearly explainable way, but the actual cause, well, might remain a mystery, although it might be as simple as that Turbo Optimization switch being disabled in the default BIOS configuration. I have asked OEMs to disable their custom Turbo profiles at default, but it really didn't work out the way I thought it would here; that is, if it is the cause of this particular issue."

MSI GeForce GTX 780 GAMING Review reported at 11:24 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: Overclockers Club
Article Quote:
Priced currently at $669 from online e-tailers, you pay a $20 premium for the privilege of owning the MSI Gaming N780 TF 3GD5/OC GeForce GTX 780. All told the latest gaming series card from MSI delivers excellent FPS performance while running cool and quiet. It does not get much better unless you lay down another $350 US.
