Antec HCG-620M Review reported at 08:50 AM
category: Power Supplies     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
Antec’s High Current Gamer 620W modular power supply is the ideal solution for any budget conscious gamer who wants the flexibility of a modular power supply. Its efficiency, PFC and voltage regulation performance were all right on the money and even though this unit does lack some finesse in terms of acoustic performance and overall cable quality, for a gaming system this unit ticks all the right boxes with reliability, clean and stable power and enough amps to power the most demanding graphics cards. Antec’s HCG 620W is a smart choice for gamers given its current pricing.

MSI GTX 770 N770 Twin Frozr 2GD5/OC Review reported at 08:45 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
With pricing and clock speed differentials out of the way it is now time to discuss what I liked about the card. Firstly, it was super quiet and I reiterated this on previous MSI Gaming Twin Frozr cards (notably the GTX 760) that I was just so impressed with how quiet they run. MSI could easily use more aggressive profiles to gain lower temperatures but they don’t need to because the cards run cool enough and quiet enough as it is. That leads me onto the second point which is that due to the excellent cooling solution Nvidia’s GPU Boost 2.0 is allowed to work to its full effect because thermal throttling never really kicks in even over prolonged gaming sessions. Finally, I am just hugely impressed with how great the card looks. MSI have really designed a beautiful looking card thanks to their Gaming Series Twin Frozr cooler. The product is also boosted by the fact MSI use high quality components and you know that you’ve got a solid 3 year warranty backing your purchase.

Razer Tiamat Review reported at 08:39 AM
category: headsets     website: MadShrimps
Article Quote:
The Tiamat 2.2 gaming headset from Razer has impressed us positively during the test period because of the way it sounds after we have ran the Surround software, or after some small tuning but also because of the fact that it is quite light. The outer side of the ear cups share design elements from the wireless Chimaera, but the inner padding is now covered by leatherette instead of cloth. Because of this, the ears may get warm during use since the possibility of skin breathing is limited. Thanks to the two extra 40mm drivers, the bass is much better represented compared to other headsets from the same league.

Asus Maximus VI Extreme Review reported at 08:34 AM
category: Socket 1150 Motherboards     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
The ASUS MAXIMUS VI EXTREME just does not disappoint. As the base of a highly-clocked 24/7 rig running multiple videocards and high RAM speeds, few can compare, especially since it is ready and willing if you want to put your rig under LN2 to break some records. For memory overclocking, the large number of built-in profiles are sure to meet any user's needs, so much so that any overclocking difficulties have been removed for those with a little bit of overclocking experience, or none at all. Simply provide ample cooling and those records can be yours after a few clicks.

MSI Z87 XPower Review reported at 08:32 AM
category: Socket 1150 Motherboards     website: Hardware.Info
Article Quote:
In a nutshell, the MSI XPower is the perfect motherboard for extreme overclockers, but you're also paying for many features you will likely never use.

eVGA GeForce GTX 780 Classified ACX Review reported at 08:28 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: HardwareCanucks
Article Quote:
The EVGA Classified may be one of the most expensive GTX 780 cards around but it is the first to truly push the outer limits of NVIDIA’s Kepler architecture. Not only does this make it a highly valuable commodity for overclockers and gamers alike but it points to a new direction for custom graphics card development. If you have $700 set aside for a GPU upgrade, this is the card you’ll want. Period.

Noctua NH-U12S Review reported at 08:26 AM
category: CPU Coolers     website: APH Networks
Article Quote:
For about $75 at press time, its bigger brother offers better cooling performance for only $5 over the this cooler's $70 tag at press time. Unless you have a very tight case that can only accommodate the NH-U12S, but not the NH-U14S, I highly recommend you to go with the latter. Does this mean the NH-U12S sucks? Absolutely not. It just means the NH-U12S is awesome, but Noctua themselves just has something awesomer.

TDK A360 Wireless Review reported at 08:22 AM
category: Digital Speakers     website: NikKTech
Article Quote:
"Long story short the A360 Wireless 360 Speaker is a jack of all trades, it looks great, it's compact, offers very good audio clarity, plenty of bass, lots of volume (although less compared to the A73 Boombox) and we don't really expect it to hit stores with a price tag that far off compared to other a lot less powerful portable speakers in the market. The only thing I’d like to see would be a remote control since it came in very handy while testing the A73 Boombox but i guess we can't have it all. So for everything mentioned the A360 Wireless 360 Speaker grabs our Golden award."
