Phanteks Enthoo Primo Review reported at 11:20 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: Guru3D
Article Quote:
The chassis is not perfect sure, there are little things I like to see changed, improved ODD mounts, fan controller and yeah, simple stuff like that. But if I had to rate it I'd give it a 9 out of 10 and considering the Enthoo Primo is the first chassis Phanteks ever put into production we can only applaud them. We can highly recommend the Phanteks Enthoo Primo, you'll easily forget about the 2, maybe 3 flaws as otherwise it is a truly excellent product.

NZXT H630 Review reported at 11:10 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: Guru3D
Article Quote:
NZXT has an impressive offering with the H630. It however is a cut down version of the Phantom 820 and then another cut down of the Phantom 630. While most of the features are similar, some compromises have been made. The innards of the HDD covers the 820 has are gone, no HUE LED RGB lighting system, trimmed down USB connectors, no fan controller and a few other small things. Overall these changes are pretty significant, but do bring the H630 towards a price level of sub-150 USD / EUR. I like the looks that are clean and crisp with the rounded edges and the black exhaust mesh. The chassis hardly does make noise, but the inclusion of a fan controller would have been the way to go so these fans could have been set at a lower RPM.

G.Skill TridentX F3-2666C11D-8GTXD Review reported at 11:08 AM
category: DDR3 Memory     website: ocaholic
Article Quote:
In the end, we can say that Ivy Bridge-born memory models are still a force in the Haswell era, as clearly demonstrated above by the DDR3-2666 CL11 version of the Trident-X. Not only are Hynix CFR memory chips, which this kit is still based on, able to show good overclocking numbers, but those are also likely to outlast (in terms of production runs) and outperform any of the alternatives currently available. And they achieve all that while being reasonably priced, which deservedly gets our thumbs up.

Noctua NH-U12S Review reported at 10:56 AM
category: CPU Coolers     website: ThinkComputers
Article Quote:
The Noctua NH-U12S performs great given its size. Even with a single fan (the default setup) the cooler had no problem handling our Intel Core i7-4960X Extreme Edition processor. I mentioned it before but the Extreme Edition processors run much hotter than your normal processors. The cooler can also be upgraded by adding a second Noctua NF-F12 fan.

LSI Logic 9300-4i4e Review reported at 10:51 AM
category: IDE Hard Drives     website: Benchmark Reviews
Article Quote:
"In summary, the LSI 9300-4i4e SAS PCI-Express 12Gb/s Host Bus Adapter offers a scalable approach for connecting many SAS and SATA end-devices with maximum data bandwidth. This is critical for data server installations or high-performance enterprise network storage, which is why the solid-state construction and extended-length warranty play into the purchase price. There are few alternatives that offer anywhere near the same features and functionality, which is why the LSI PCIe SAS HBA earns the Benchmark Reviews Golden Tachometer Award."

Corsair Vengeance Pro DDR3-2666 2x8GB Kit Review reported at 10:41 AM
category: DDR3 Memory     website: Overclockers Club
Article Quote:
"I don't have concrete pricing on these modules just yet, but the 2400MHz version of these modules will set you back close to $189. Pricing of similarly rated 2666MHz modules from other manufacturers are currently in the $225 to $250 plus range, so I would expect that this Vengeance Pro series kit will come in at that price point. At the end of the rainbow you have a set of modules that look great, boot right up the first try thanks to an XMP 1.3 profile, and run cool as can be. The best bet to maximize performance will be to tweak the sub timings to get the most from these modules."
