NZXT Phantom 530 Review reported at 11:28 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
To some, it may seem like NZXT has been milking the whole Phantom design for far too long, but why change a design that works? Their move to offer the Phantom 410, a smaller version of the original Phantom, has ultimately shown that the demand for such a chassis exists. Now, with the new Phantom 530, NZXT is taking the plunge and updating their mid-tower case with the new design we have come to know and love through the Phantom 630 and 820. Though the chassis is quite compact when compared to its bigger brethren, it offers a lot of the same functional features that set it apart from its aging counterparts. By offering excellent water-cooling support, loads of space, and nifty features, like LED lighting, a fan controller, and the separate tray for the SSD, NZXT has made the Phantom 530 a great choice for those wanting something that is more traditional in size—all while still featuring the cool look and excellent paint job of the Phantom line.

Intel DC S3500 RAID Performance Review reported at 11:27 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: Tom's Hardware
Article Quote:
Of course, Intel's SSD DC S3500 is a sexy beast in its own right, destined for more important roles than kicking out big numbers on a built-in storage controller. Although it doesn't match the S3700's endurance or consistency, it was designed to fill a different role. The S3500 employs the compute-grade flash that goes into Intel's latest desktop-oriented drives, meaning it isn't meant to take writes all day long. Rather, it's best suited to applications that push a ton of reads. In that environment, it does its job well, and for significantly less money than beefier SSDs with HET-MLC, eMLC, or SLC NAND.

Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold 450W & 550W Review reported at 10:58 AM
category: Power Supplies     website: Hardware.Info
Article Quote:
Our tests proved that the efficiency of the Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold 450W and 550W is very good, even at very low loads. The voltages are good as well. We've seen lower ripples, but it always remained below 50 mVtt, which is excellent. The usage without load is also good. The only minor issue we have with the Silent Pro Golds is their noise level. They're definitely not loud, but there are more quiet PSUs in this segment. So if perfect silence is indeed one of your requirements, you should probably spend a little more and get a different one. If you don't mind a very minor hum, then both of these are excellent choices.

MSI GTX 770 N770 Twin Frozr 2GD5/OC Review reported at 10:41 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: ThinkComputers
Article Quote:
When it comes down to it the GeForce GTX 770 is about 10% faster than the GeForce GTX 680 and about 10-15% slower than the GeForce GTX 780. That means it will handle all of the new titles at 1920 x 1080 resolution at high settings with no issues at all. MSI brings awesome components, a great cooler and different operating modes to the table with this version of the GTX 770.
