Corsair Obsidian 350D Review reported at 12:01 PM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: LanOC
Article Quote:
The case wasn’t perfect, I didn’t like the placement/design of the front panel I/O and the power button felt cheap to me. You will also have to be careful to not go too tall on your heatsink if you want to run a side panel. But the pros outweigh the cons and it all adds up to a good mid-sized case for anyone looking to build a clean Micro-ATX pc. A pair of 780’s or the upcoming R9 290X’s would go great in this thing!

Asus GeForce GTX 760 DC Mini Review reported at 11:57 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: Vortez
Article Quote:
The ASUS GTX 760 DirectCU Mini OC packs a heavy punch despite its diminutive size. A card that performs with the best yet small enough to match SFF requirements.

category: CPU Coolers     website: ocaholic
Article Quote:
If you're looking for a well built CPU cooler, which looks nice and comes with a decent price tag, then the Shadow Rock 2 is worth considering. If you want a cooler, which is easy to install, then this is not the one.

Cooler Master CM Storm Pulse-R Review reported at 11:43 AM
category: headsets     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
I would personally buy this headset on style alone, I would also buy it just based on its performance and even just on the overall build quality, but since it delivers all three together, I’m sold. More than worthy of our prestigious Gamers Choice Award.

GeIL Thortech Thunderbolt Plus 1200W Review reported at 11:42 AM
category: Power Supplies     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
I think the Thortech Thunderbolt 1200W PSU is a very nice power supply and I certainly wouldn’t want to point anyone away from it. The Thunderbolt 1200W power supply is a good all-round performer that ticks most of the boxes someone looking for a 1200W PSU might want to fill….but in such a competitive marketplace the Thunderbolt 1200W PSU is just a bit lacking at its price point. Thortech really need to work on the design aspect and general attention to detail to justify the steep price, plus the lack of market presence and favourable commentary about the Thortech brand doesn’t exactly fill you with confidence as a buyer. If you need a really compact high wattage PSU then the Thortech Thunderbolt 1200W is more or less unchallenged but there are other good options out there that are worth considering.

Asustor AS-304T Review reported at 11:29 AM
category: Storage Accessories     website: MadShrimps
Article Quote:
"Considering that this is a product is recommended for home use, ASUSTOR has not removed the HDMI port so we can transform the whole NAS into a media center by installing the XMBC application. The interface can be controlled by using a keyboard and mouse but separately we can acquire a small ASUSTOR remote to make the control even easier."

Gigabyte GA-Z87X-D3H Review reported at 10:57 AM
category: Socket 1150 Motherboards     website: Overclock Intelligence Agency
Article Quote:
"I found the Gigabyte Z87X-D3H available online in the $140-$150 range, which isn't exactly bottom of the barrel for a Z87 board, but it's not as exorbitantly priced as the overclocking / enthusiast geared boards either. If all you need is basic, barebones LGA 1150 support, but don't want to step down to an H or B series board, the Gigabyte Z87X-D3H with its standard 3-year warranty is one option to consider."

Tesoro Kuven Review reported at 10:45 AM
category: headsets     website: NikKTech
Article Quote:
"With a current recommended price tag set at USD69.99 inside the USA and at 69.99Euros inside the EU there isn't much competition in the market for the Kuven 7.1 Virtual Surround Gaming Headset by Tesoro and although there are many headsets available currently that i'd choose over it none of those is beneath the USD100/100Euros price marker. Audio quality is very good, build quality is equally good and the design of the Kuven is also great while in terms of comfort after many hours of use well i can say that i haven't used a gaming headset just as comfortable for a long time. Of course the distortion we noticed coming from the right 50mm driver at the end of the review process is a bit troubling so we will have to wait for a new sample to make certain that this is an isolated event although i really doubt that Tesoro would release something defective in the market. Overall the Kuven 7.1 Virtual Surround Gaming Headset has everything any gamer out there would want from quality and design up to comfort and a great price tag which in the end is why it gets our Golden Award."

Corsair RM850 Review reported at 10:21 AM
category: Power Supplies     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
To wrap up: The RM850 is right for you if noise output is your main concern and you want a well-performing PSU with great support, nice looks, and an interesting set of features. Its cost is kept at reasonable levels, and it will, in a case with good airflow, operate passively most of the time, providing you with the lowest possible noise output available outside of installing a fanless PSU.

Kingston HyperX 10th Anniversary Edition DDR3-2400 4x4GB Kit Review reported at 10:19 AM
category: DDR3 Memory     website: Overclockers Club
Article Quote:
What you get in the end is a set of modules with a high speed bin that can deliver the performance you need for a price. Priced around $214, this kit does not come cheap and is priced in the middle of the comparable kits on Newegg. As has been seen in the past, the higher the speed bin the higher the price needle rises. The look of these modules is sure to add some bling to any system with the silver coloring with chrome accents used to highlight the HyperX logo. Equipped with a lifetime warranty, XMP profile, and great looks, Kingston has a winner with its 10th Anniversary Edition kit.
