MSI Z87 XPower Review reported at 11:40 AM
category: Socket 1150 Motherboards     website: PC Perspective
Article Quote:
With their Z87 line of boards, MSI took a divergent route from their Z77 line and built upon the success of the original MPower board. This led to a tiered delivery approach with the Z87 XPower taking the pole position. They kept to the signature yellow and black color scheme, adding an enhanced heat pipe cooling system and an overhauled power delivery system to the mix. The Z87 XPower upped the ante here, designing the board with a full 32-phases of military spec'd digital awesomeness. The board has looks to match with a glowing logo in its VRM heat pipe, an on-board MSI glowing logo, and a glowing audio chipset cooler (as well as the glowing separator line between the audio PCB and main PCB).

Corsair Vengeance Pro DDR3-1866 C9 2x8GB Kit Review reported at 11:35 AM
category: DDR3 Memory     website: ocaholic
Article Quote:
Overall, the 16GB version of 1866C9 Vengeance Pro is not a tragedy, but it’s no brilliant either. What Corsair have managed to come up with here is a product without any particular strong nor weak points that is ready to join the masses of other (literally) grey middle-end memory on the market.

SilverStone Fortress FT04 Review reported at 11:14 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: TechSpot
Article Quote:
"Overall we feel Silverstone has missed the mark with the Fortress FT04 as it simply doesn’t live up to their typical standard of ingenuity. The design is so complex to the point where it has started to become impractical and this makes living with the FT04 feel more like a chore than a pleasure. While we don’t doubt this design is complex to produce, at its current price tag there are simply many better options available."

be quiet Shadow Rock 2 Review reported at 10:59 AM
category: CPU Coolers     website: PureOverclock.com
Article Quote:
If you're using a 4770k/3770k and wanting to overclock then the Shadow rock 2 might not be for you. On the other hand, if you are using a 3570/4570k or any Sandy Bridge chip, and you want a super-quiet cooler, than this might fit your needs.

be quiet Pure Power CM L8 Review reported at 10:53 AM
category: Power Supplies     website: PC Perspective
Article Quote:
The Pure Power L8 700W PSU may be targeted towards value conscious consumers but it still delivers excellent voltage regulation on all of the DC outputs. On the down side, the Pure Power L8 exhibited significantly higher levels of AC ripple than the Dark Power Pro (but still well within the recommended guidelines). Bottom line, the Pure Power L8 700W PSU appears to have met Be Quiet!’s goals and should start selling for under $100 USD later this month.

Gigabyte Force K7 Review reported at 10:48 AM
category: Keyboards     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
GIGABYTE FORCE K7 is a bit of a hit and miss in terms of performance and design. GIGABYTE probably tried to accomplish too much with their K7 design; its purpose remains unclear. An ultra-slim keyboard is interesting to those looking for something sleek, but the K7 is a big gaming keyboard. A gaming keyboard should, on the other hand, have lots of gaming features, and the K7 misses two big ones: a good driver and full anti-ghosting. What partial anti-ghosting there is might be enough for most people, but many cheaper keyboards can provide the same. The K7's back-lighting system does work, but the Lock LEDs are a bit too bright, and the back-lighting for its other keys is a bit too dim.

Noctua NF-S12A (ULN, FLX, PWM) Review reported at 10:38 AM
category: Case Cooling Solutions     website: Overclockers Club
Article Quote:
Unfortunately, this marvelous piece of technology comes at the hefty Noctua premium. Fortunately, this is nothing new for Noctua; it has always put in a great deal of effort developing quality products and has always priced them around the same $25 area for the 120mm fans. The NF-S12A FLX, ULN, and PWM are no exceptions and are well worth the price if you are looking for power, but don’t want to sacrifice peace and quiet. Noctua wraps up all this customization and performance with a six-year warranty. I have been blown away by Noctua’s newest S12 series fans and I hope you will be too.
