SilverStone SST-TJ04-E Review reported at 05:38 PM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: Overclock Intelligence Agency
Article Quote:
Overall the issues are mostly minor and the TJ04-E makes for a decent mid-tower case, but having reviewed several SilverStone cases over the years I'd say the TJ04-E felt a bit lacking in quality.

eVGA GeForce GTX 780 Superclocked ACX Review reported at 03:18 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: Anandtech
Article Quote:
Wrapping things up, it’s clear that EVGA has put together an extremely solid card with their GeForce GTX 780 Superclocked ACX, both on the basis of performance and relative value. As we alluded to at the start of this article, EVGA is offering a sizable factory overclock for an absolutely tiny price premium, and as a result the 780SC ACX looks extremely good on a price/performance basis. For $10 more than a stock GTX 780 the 780SC ACX delivers 10% better performance, does so with just a trivial increase in power consumption, and ultimately closes the performance gap with GTX Titan. On this basis the 780SC ACX is a much better value proposition than your typical factory overclocked card, to the point where the stock card rarely makes sense. For all practical purposes the stock GTX 780 has been rendered redundant because of this.

MSI N780 Lightning Review reported at 02:54 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: HardOCP
Article Quote:
If price matters not, and you want the best GTX 780 out there, the MSI GTX 780 LIGHTNING is it. If you want the highest overclock possible out of a GTX 780, or are going to do unique and custom cooling, the MSI GTX 780 LIGHTNING is where it's at. If money matters, and you need to save every dime, the GALAXY GTX 780 HOF is cheaper, and produces a near same experience. If money really really matters, and you are OK running at a higher power demand, and a hotter video card, and know how dual-GPU relates to gaming, the AMD Radeon HD 7990 is compelling.

Cooler Master Silencio 352 Review reported at 01:11 PM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
"It is very easy to maintain too, a clip-in dust filter in the front, a slide out dust filter at the back for the PSU and a cover for the top fan mount to keep dust out and noise in. The side panels and front panels features padding that will help keep noise to a minimum also and if you are wanting a powerful, but compact work station computer, then the last thing you want is to have to listen to it buzz and hum away all day, so the sound proofing is more than welcome."

Corsair Voyager GS Review reported at 12:59 PM
category: Tape/Zip/Jaz Drives     website: Myce
Article Quote:
"The Corsair Voyager GS has a very impressive performance, it can reach read speeds of up to 280MB/Sec, and that makes it one of the fastest USB flash drives that I have tested so far. But I personally would like to see a higher write speed. You can’t really say that 70MB/Sec is slow, but equally you can’t say that it is fast. The good point is that the write speed is outstanding when it comes to writing large files."

Corsair RM650 Review reported at 12:53 PM
category: Power Supplies     website: ocaholic
Article Quote:
"With the RM650 Corsair has a competitive, new product in its portfolio. Thanks to an attractive pricing as well as a reasonable feature mix you get a decent PSU for your money. With a maximum output power of 650 Watt, this unit is perfectly suitable for any PC with one video card. Corsair equipped this unit with a modular cable management, which allows neat wiring. A closer look at the cables shows, that the maker put flat ribbon cables into the delivery. Additionally, there are plenty of connector cables included, which are just perfect for a 650 Watt power supply unit."

Enermax Fulmo GT Review reported at 12:35 PM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: ThinkComputers
Article Quote:
While we were very impressed with this card there were a few things that did catch our attention. the first is that the fan controller only supports 3 fans, yet the case comes with 5. There are two internal USB 3.0 connectors. Now not every motherboard has dual internal USB 3.0 headers so Enermax has included an internal to dual external adapter, but it really is not long enough at all. Finally I would have really have liked to have seen a CPU power extension cable given the size of the case.

Corsair RM550 Review reported at 12:31 PM
category: Power Supplies     website: PC Perspective
Article Quote:
"The RM Series adds a new tier to Corsair’s already formidable PC power supply offering. Our RM550 test unit produced very good DC load regulation with very good efficiency (easily met 80Plus Gold certification criteria) across a full range of loads. And the unit was able to keep AC ripple and noise well under control, even at full load. The RM550 comes with a basic compliment of all-modular, flat ribbon-style cables. The main 24-pin ATX, 4+4-pin ATX/EPS, and PCI-E connector cables are nice and long (25”-26”). And if you are interested in setting up Corsair’s Corsair Link monitoring and control software on your PC, the RM Series PSU is ready with fan speed and +12V rail current monitoring (optional Corsair Link hardware required)."

SteelSeries Apex Review reported at 12:28 PM
category: Keyboards     website: MadShrimps
Article Quote:
"The SteelSeries Apex gaming keyboard features a sleek design, along with an integrated wrist rest and a lot of programmable keys placed for easy access. Each of the 5-zone illumination setup can be customized independently regarding LED color and intensity; we can also set all the zones with the same color in order to get a more regular appearance."

G.Skill TridentX F3-2666C11D-8GTXD Review reported at 12:08 PM
category: DDR3 Memory     website: Bjorn3D
Article Quote:
Overall no matter if you’re a gamer, overclocker or just want to upgrade from some basic low end sticks. The Gskill TridentX Line is super strong and this kit in particular matched with the right platform can get almost 3K and possibly more if put under cold.

Cooler Master V8 GTS Review reported at 11:46 AM
category: CPU Coolers     website: Benchmark Reviews
Article Quote:
Until that can be determined I feel I can only recommend the V8 GTS to those that truly enjoy the “engine” look, and would appreciate the lower noise from the twin 140mm fans – not to mention, the V8 GTS will still keep your CPU cool. I don’t think the target demographic would be disappointed with the V8 GTS because it seems obvious to me you don’t buy a CPU cooler like this for practicality; in that sense the V8 GTS delivers. If all you want is a product that gives you the best performance for the price there are better options.

Corsair Obsidian 350D Review reported at 11:45 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: Hardware.Info
Article Quote:
On the other hand, the Obsidian 350D is innovative in its own way. With the 350D, Corsair seems to say that full ATX isn't necessary, as most people tend to have no more than two hard disks or SSDs. By making the chassis large, they've left plenty of space for a large radiator, or very effective air cooling. It wouldn't surprise us if more manufacturers follow this example. If we had a Hardware.Info 'innovation award', it would have been appropriate here. Where the 900D was a tour de force showing what Corsair is capable of, the 350D is a much more useful contribution to the evolution of the modern desktop chassis.
