Akasa Venom Medusa Review reported at 11:36 AM
category: CPU Coolers     website: HardOCP
Article Quote:
To put it another way, the Venom Medusa is twice the price of the True Spirit 120M but only performs about two degrees Celsius better. And yes we know some of you do not like us continually referring to the True Spirit because of its age and availability, but the fact is that Thermalright set a standard with it, and it still available for purchase at $43. You’ll have to decided how important those two degrees are but I am willing to bet quite a few of you would rather have the extra cash in your pocket and give up the small difference in performance.

Western Digital Red Review reported at 11:10 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: NikKTech
Article Quote:
Perhaps the best surprise about the Red series of HDDs by Western Digital is their price since currently the 3TB model (WD30EFRX) retails for just USD139.72 inside the USA (Amazon.com) and 125Euros inside the EU (Amazon.co.uk). That being said the WD30EFRX does not offer stellar levels of performance and is in fact quite slower than most of the HDD models we've tested over the past years but realistically speaking its read/write levels are actually above what most NAS Servers can handle and at the same time the NASware 2.0 technology package does seem to make a difference. Bottom line if you are looking for the ideal HDD for use with your NAS Server and you are not willing to spend much then the Red line of HDDs by Western Digital should be your first and perhaps only stop which is why the WD30EFRX 3TB SATA III HDD gets our Golden Award.

Cooler Master V550S Review reported at 10:55 AM
category: Power Supplies     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
"To wrap up, the VS series looks really promising since the V550S's performance was excellent and incredibly quiet under normal conditions. The problem I spotted during one of the turn-on transient tests wasn't enough to spoil the very good overall picture. I still think this is the perfect PSU for those who want to power a small-medium system reliably with a silent, high price/performance PSU. It is also nice to see CM back on the right track with their PSU offerings, something that started with their release of the V series and is now continuing with the VS one."

category: headsets     website: PureOverclock.com
Article Quote:
Sound quality from the Pro+ is really amazing and can be used for music, movies, video chat Skype and of course gaming.The Pro+ True 5.1 headset fits right into the price bracket for 5.1 surround heatset for PC. Few of those can also be used for Xbox360 and PS3.

Asus GeForce GTX 760 DC Mini Review reported at 10:35 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
ASUS has told us that their GeForce GTX 760 Direct CU Mini will retail at similar pricing as their normal GTX 760 Direct CU going for around $260 to $270. This is a very reasonable price, especially for a mini-ITX product, which usually comes with a hefty price increase. I can certainly recommend the GTX 760 DC Mini for a mini-ITX system, but I'd recommend looking at full-sized cards if you have room to spare because those cost the same and come with higher clocks, and better thermals and noise.
