Roccat Kone Pure & XTD Review reported at 12:22 PM
category: Mice     website: Techware Labs
Article Quote:
So, in the end, both mice are great choices: One is lightweight, tiny, and portable, while the other is a full-size, heavy yet nimble behemoth. if you need a great portable gaming mouse, that wont break the bank and will keep the function of its siblings, the Pure is the way to go. Conversely, if customization is key for you, and you need to control everything from the mouse weight to the lights on its four LEDs, as well as have a lot of buttons to map and use, my recommendation goes to the XTD. Keep in mind that the transition from your native mouse to these might be a bit jarring, but in the end (depending on your preference) it could be ultimately rewarding.

Article Quote:
Until the next round-up, though, it'd be impossible for us to deny that ASRock's Z87 Extreme4 is an impressive buy for the amount of hardware you get at $140. In this case, you, the reader, win. ASRock earns recognition parallel to Biostar as a result.

Hitachi Travelstar 5K1500 Review reported at 11:59 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: MadShrimps
Article Quote:
"HGST recommends these drives in notebook PCs or gaming PCs (our recommendation would be to install them as secondary drives), but also consoles, blade servers, network routers or for video surveillance. As a real-life test, we have installed the 5K1500 inside our PS3 to replace a 500GB Caviar Black and we have seen a very small performance drop, while the available storage space has tripled, which is a huge improvement."

ASRock Z87 OC Formula Review reported at 11:47 AM
category: Socket 1150 Motherboards     website: Hardware Asylum
Article Quote:
Overclocking the ASRock Z87 OC Formula was actually quite fun. There were some challenges in finding the features we needed in the UEFI, in part due to them all being on the same page but, after some intense scrolling everything came together. You will find several pre-built overclocking profiles in the UEFI. We found them to work quite well but offered up excessive voltage so we would recommend using them as a starting point for your own system.

NZXT Phantom 530 Review reported at 11:44 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: HardwareCanucks
Article Quote:
The 530’s aim is quite simple: take everything we know and love about the original Phantom and update key components so they meet with the expectations of today’s consumers. This needed to be accomplished without sacrificing the Phantom’s status as a spacious full tower chassis nor compromise on its relatively low price point. Indeed, the Phantom 530 is still one of the most inexpensive full tower cases around at just $130, making it a phenomenal value in a crowded segment.

Phanteks Enthoo Primo Review reported at 11:41 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
The Enthoo Primo offers all of this at an excellent price, making it a real contender to the Obsidian 800D or Phantom 820 and a worthy alternative for those who want loads of watercooling potential for less than the, to give an example, Obsidian 900D.

Thermaltake Chaser A71 Review reported at 11:33 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: Benchmark Reviews
Article Quote:
"When all is said and done, there is so many positive things to say about the Thermaltake Chaser A71, and very little to complain about, unless you want to get really picky. In honesty, it might be more case than what some people need. However, it is worth every penny of the asking price, and I highly recommend this case, especially to those planning on a moderate to high-end build, or are planning to eventually modify/expand."

MSI N760 Hawk Review reported at 10:58 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
To be honest, even with the GTX 760 HAWK being as awesome as it is, I find it hard to justify the price increase. In my opinion, $270 or $275 would be acceptable, but not much more. The large performance increase will, on the other hand, offset cost by providing better performance per dollar, and you don't have to invest time into manual overclocking. If the GTX 760 HAWK is too expensive for you, then I'd strongly recommend the MSI GTX 760 GAMING because it is only $260 and has excellent low-noise properties without losing much on performance.
