SilverStone Milo ML05 Review reported at 12:03 PM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: ocaholic
Article Quote:
"The SilverStone Milo ML05 left a very good impression. With the ML05 one can build a small but powerful Mini-ITX Home Theater PC without breaking the bank. We really like the design, the size and the selling price of the thing. Overall the case is very good but there are a few little things that could have been easily improved."

AMD Radeon R9 290X Review reported at 11:50 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: Hardware.Info
Article Quote:
The Radeon R9 290X is an extremely powerful graphics card, faster than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 in almost every benchmark, and faster than the Titan in more than a few. With 4K resolution, which of course is still very exotic for all but the early adopters, the Radeon R9 290X takes first place in every single benchmark. Nvidia still frequently does better when it comes to the frametimes, and the 780 and Titan cards are more quiet than the 290X.

AMD Radeon R9 290X Review reported at 11:44 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
AMD’s R9 290X graphics card has reclaimed the single GPU crown from Nvidia’s GTX Titan. There is no doubting it boasts the performance credentials of a class leading graphics card and with AMD’s new PowerTune, Eyefinity, 4K and TrueAudio tweaks the functionality-aspect of AMD’s new flagship is highly attractive. We look forward to seeing what AMD’s graphics card partners can offer in the way of innovative cooling and PCB designs and additional features or overclocks. Whatever they choose to do they’ve got one mighty fine GPU to work with and a price that will take most people by surprise (in a positive way).

4K Gaming Showdown – AMD R9 290X & R9 280X vs. Nvidia GTX Titan & GTX 780 reported at 11:42 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
In terms of advising consumers where to go in 4K gaming, as of writing, AMD is the obvious choice given current pricing. That means the obvious choice if getting best value for money is most important to you. The R9 290X is superior to the GTX Titan and GTX 780 at 4K and it costs around $549, while the GTX 780 costs around $649 and the GTX Titan still holds a premium of $999. Nvidia and AMD “fanboys” can wage war all they like but it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see AMD are offering the better value for money 4K solutions. This will change as Nvidia respond with price cuts and new GPUs and when that happens we’ll probably be back to square one again – with Nvidia and AMD on equal footing at the respective high end GPU price points. As it stands though there is quite a big price vacuum between Nvidia and AMD but our Nvidia sources have told us Nvidia is preparing to announce some significant price cuts soon.

AMD Radeon R9 290X Review reported at 11:39 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: PC Perspective
Article Quote:
AMD has put itself in a great position with the Radeon R9 290X based on the new Hawaii GPU. The R9 290X is faster than the GTX 780, just about on par with the GTX Titan, all while coming in at a price well under what NVIDIA has on the shelves today. It isn't perfect and the warts of noise, power, and heat will bother some. Still, users looking for a top performing single-GPU graphics card will find the R9 290X at the top of their list.

With the R9 290X, AMD has achieved something phenomenal. They have made extreme performance all that much more accessible to gamers by releasing a card that not only bucks current industry pricing trends but also looks towards the future with promising technologies Mantle and TrueAudio. Despite the fact that acoustics and power consumption may drag down the reference version in some respects, the R9 290X is a compelling enthusiast graphics card that has every right to brag about its supremacy.

AMD Radeon R9 290X Review reported at 11:31 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: TechSpot
Article Quote:
We're impressed with the R9 290X's performance and even more so with its price. AMD has finally given Nvidia a reason to discount its top tier products and that's enough to be grateful for. There's something to appreciate in watching healthy competition between two seasoned rivals. If you've been eyeing the Titan, it seems about time to pull the trigger, whether you take advantage of pending price cuts or settle for the R9 290X now.

Article Quote:
To be honest when Cooler Master announced the HAF Stacker series I was not really that impressed, but after spending some time with the cases and building a system in them my mind has been changed. They make complete sense and can really help you build the ultimate system.

AMD Radeon R9 290X CrossFire Review reported at 11:22 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
So, should you pick a pair of R9 290Xs over a single GTX TITAN by shelling out $100 more? Only if you're willing to put up with a lot more noise, heat, and power-draw for 30% more performance, which does show potential to widen at EyeFinity resolutions. Watercooling could solve the noise issues, and benchmark enthusiasts with LN2 on tap could see things a whole lot differently.
