Asus Maximus VI Hero Review reported at 12:28 PM
category: Socket 1150 Motherboards     website: HardOCP
Article Quote:
The ASUS Maximus VI Hero is very much a welcome model in the ASUS Republic of Gamers product stack. It fills in the need for a lower priced ROG motherboard option. Of course with that you will give up a lot of extra features that you find on other ROG motherboards, but the core essence of the Republic of Gamers motherboard is retained.

Attitude One Vintorez Review reported at 12:26 PM
category: Mice     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
"While this might not be the best mouse on the market, it is competitively priced while offering an extensive feature set. For around £30 you’ll be hard pushed to find a better product in this price range."

Razer Kraken 7.1 Review reported at 11:42 AM
category: headsets     website: Tech Hive
Article Quote:
"Is the Kraken 7.1 worth $100? Sure. But if you already own a pair of stereo headsets you’re in love with, grab Razer’s Surround software instead. If you loathe wires, I’ve been rather smitten by the Creative Sound Blaster Tactic3D Rage ($90) for some time now, though it admittedly isn’t as comfortable. And if you’ve got even more cash to spend—as well as a sound card—get the Razer Tiamat, which is awesome. But if you’re right in the middle—demanding comfort, don’t mind wires, and want a solid 7.1 surround sound experience without spend beaucoup bucks—the Kraken 7.1 headset is an excellent choice."

SilverStone Raven RV-04 Review reported at 11:35 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: HardwareHeaven
Article Quote:
At £133 (sub $200) The Raven 4 feels like a much more expensive case than it actually is. It offers some stylish looks and a build which stands out from the crowd. Pair it with a TD03 and we have the basis for a really impressive system.

Enermax Coenus Review reported at 11:33 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: HiTech Legion
Article Quote:
The Coenus’ build quality is decent and the gunmetal gray color is uniform and well-executed, although the “gamer” look might not appeal to older user’s sensibilities. The feature set is remarkably robust and highly functional making shortcomings such as the lack of tool-free expansion slot mounting, simple dust filter options and low roof clearance easily forgivable considering what the competition has to offer in this price range. Enermax even managed to offer an acrylic window, two USB 3.0 ports, USB 2.0 adapter, cable management kit, and two 120mm fans for the budget price of only $69.99. For offering excellent value in a crowded market, the Enermax Coenus earns the HiTech Legion Editor’s Choice award.

G.Skill RipjawsX F3-17000CL11D-8GBXL Review reported at 11:09 AM
category: DDR3 Memory     website: Modders-Inc
Article Quote:
"Overall, I am very impressed with the Ripjaws X 2133Mhz RAM. They retail for $73 (2 x 4Gb kit) and are also available in larger 2 x 8Gb kits not to mention the wide variety of Ripjaws of different speeds and timings to allow you to find the RAM that perfectly suits your needs. I have actually decided to keep them in my main computer because I like them so much. They are very sexy in my ROG themed computer, didn’t break the bank, have improved the rendering time of some recent projects, and increased my minimum frames per second while gaming. Good job G.Skill! If the Ripjaws X are this good I am definitely going to have to get myself a pair of the Trident X!"

Cougar PowerX Review reported at 10:36 AM
category: Power Supplies     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
Cougar aren’t the first name that come to mind when we think of power supplies but their Power X 550W power supply shows us that they really are strong contenders and a force to be reckoned with in this market. If you are looking for a clean and stable power supply and aren’t too worried about noise or attention to detail then the Cougar Power X 550W power supply is one of the best options on the market. Sure the product could benefit from some refinement but then again if you are a gamer or just a value-orientated system builder then the Cougar Power X 550W fits the bill perfectly.

DeepCool GAMMAXX S40 Review reported at 09:57 AM
category: CPU Coolers     website: ThinkComputers
Article Quote:
While this is fairly cheap, there are too many better options for less that will perform better and won’t need upgrades to get the performance you pay for. If you still must have the S40, look for better thermal paste and more powerful fan to get better results.

eVGA 500B Review reported at 09:47 AM
category: Power Supplies     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
"The EVGA 500B isn't a record breaker performance-wise, but it comes at a very nice price and is backed by a three-year warranty. If you don't want to spend much on a mainstream PSU, this is a good choice, though it could offer significantly better performance with a few small fixes."
