Cooler Master V850 Review reported at 01:27 PM
category: Power Supplies     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
The conclusion of today’s review is crystal clear: Take a look at the price/performance, relative performance, and output noise graphs, and the V850 sits on top of the corresponding category. Though it is "only" 80 Plus Gold certified, it easily meets the Platinum competition eye-to-eye, and costs way less. At its current price, its purchase is simply a no-brainer, and based on the results of all the tests I ran, it deserves TPU's rarely given Editior's Choice award. Job well done, CM—try to keep it this way from now on out!

AeroCool Dead Silence Review reported at 11:13 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: Tom's Hardware
Article Quote:
At the end of the day, Aerocool's Dead Silence is an attractive, well-designed, and versatile chassis with plenty of room for enthusiast-oriented hardware in a compact form factor. We like its estimated price tag and the fact that it'll be available in so many color combinations. If you don't mind making some minor improvements (like replacing the rear case fan), you'll be happy with a small gaming machine based on this case.

MSI N760 Hawk Review reported at 11:10 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: Ultimate Hardware
Article Quote:
The MSI GeForce GTX 760 performed well against the MSI Radeon R9 270x but it was a close result with the MSI Radeon R9 270x beating the MSI GeForce GTX 760 by 3% overall. The MSI GeForce GTX 760 won 5 of the game benchmarks and the MSI Radeon R9 270x won 3 and the rest of the game benchmarks were close. The MSI GeForce GTX 760 is 1% higher clock speed compared to the MSI Radeon R9 270x which is nothing. The MSI GeForce GTX 760 TDP of 170 is 6% more efficent than the MSI Radeon R9 270x TDP of 180. I was going to give the Ultimate Hardware Best Buy to the MSI GeForce GTX 760 until i saw that the price of the MSI GeForce GTX 760 is 16% more than the MSI Radeon R9 270x so well done AMD for such a great video card and price so the MSI Radeon R9 270x gets the Ultimate Hardware Best Buy although the MSI GeForce GTX 760 is good too.

Thecus N5550 Review reported at 10:38 AM
category: Storage Accessories     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
To sum up, I admit that I was hard on the N5550 since I expected even more and because the competition is really rough. I am pretty sure Thecus can fix all of the shortcomings I found to deliver a spotless product. The N5550 has a long list of very strong points despite the problems I found. Also, it is very reasonably priced, and it actually has one of the top price/performance ratios in its category. If you are looking for a reliable and quite fast NAS with strong hardware that won't empty your bank account, and you don't mind the downsides I listed, which will thankfully be worked out by Thecus in time, put the N5550 on your list. For a five-bay NAS with an Intel Atom processor, its price is a bargain compared to similar offers by the competition. Its hardware has potential, and the N5550 will be a great NAS if Thecus manages to resolve the software issues I pointed out.

Gaming Mice Roundup 2013 reported at 10:18 AM
category: Mice     website: TechSpot
Article Quote:
Overall, we think Logitech's G700s might be the safest all-rounder if money isn't an issue, Razer and SteelSeries have an edge in aggressive enthusiast styling and features, while Gigabyte's Aivia Krypton ($62) seems like the best value and Thermaltake's Volos makes a fine choice if you're seeking the road less travelled.

Corsair Carbide Air 540 Review reported at 10:08 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: Overclockers Club
Article Quote:
The Corsair Carbide Air 540 sets your idea of what a computer case should look like on edge. This is a bold step for Corsair, and they have done it with near perfect execution. The quality is top notch, which is certainly no surprise from Corsair. The fit and finish, particularly the way the top and front vent covers fit together impressed me. The compact case size is deceiving - there is plenty of space for an attractive build. The included AF140L fans are quiet and move plenty of air. The two-chamber design indeed improves air flow and helps to keep temps down. It took me a little while to get used to the sideways optical drive, but that was no big deal. Don't let the compact size fool you, as the Air 540 can handle an E-ATX (Extended ATX) motherboard with ease.
