Gigabyte GeForce GTX 780 GHz Edition Windforce 3X Review reported at 10:59 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
"What Gigabyte have done with their GTX 780 GHz Edition is impressive. They’ve taken a stock GTX 780, given it a massive 20% overclock, then added their highly effective WindForce cooling solution. To make it that little bit more special they’ve also thrown a backplate into the equation and all of this costs you just 10% more than a “normal” GTX 780. While additional overclocking headroom is not that impressive, it doesn’t need to be because the GTX 780 GHz Edition from Gigabyte essentially guarantees you a capable GTX 780 overclocker as it has to run at a 20% overclock out of the box. If you’re looking for a viable alternative to the GTX 780 Ti or GTX Titan, then we think this just might be it, and for a much smaller price. Well done Gigabyte!"

Intel Core i5-3570K vs. Core i5-2500K Gaming-Performance reported at 10:49 AM
category: Intel Socket 1155 CPUs     website: ocaholic
Article Quote:
In case you are currently running the Core i5-2500K, there is simply no need to upgrade to the Core i5-3570K as you will end up with a pretty much identical CPU and will not see any performance gains unless you plan to play the games at low resolution and low graphics settings. At high graphics settings, both the Core i5-2500K and the Core i5-3570K do a great job and are not the bottleneck, so investing in a better GPU is a much better way to go.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Review reported at 10:45 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: Bjorn3D
Article Quote:
The 780 Ti is an excellent single card and I can only imagine how it will scale in a multi GPU setup but knowing you can now get performance over a TITAN for 300 less than a TITAN is just awesome.

Be Quiet’s Dark Power Pro 10 550W CM power supply is a beautiful piece of craftsmanship both in terms of its mind-blowing performance and its beautiful aesthetics.

OCZ Vector 150 Review reported at 10:32 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: Benchmark Reviews
Article Quote:
With solid state drive technology finally nearing mainstream adoption, the OCZ Vector 150 uses improved performance and increased longevity to achieve top ratings, while 19nm NAND flash components will help drive down costs and the controller secures data with AES-256 encryption. Chances are very good that the Vector 150 SSD will outlast the computer system its installed into, but the product’s five-year warranty will help ensure that consumers are still well protected. Benchmark Reviews recognizes how well the OCZ Vector 150 SSD series delivers operational performance to power users by topping our IOPS test results, proudly earning our Golden Tachometer Award.

BitFenix Ronin Review reported at 10:26 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
The BitFenix Ronin shares a few elements with the Shinobi when it comes to the interior of the case, so some may call the Ronin its spiritual successor. The Ronin is currently available for pre-order at 79.99 euros, which seems adequate. While it is more expensive than the Shinobi or the Midgard II, it does offer more features and solid build quality. Yes, the Midgard II has its HDD hot-swap bay, but the Ronin offers better overall quality and the unique visual cover within the chassis. BitFenix has done a good job differentiating the Ronin from the Shinobi, with actual hard-drive cages, one of which is removable, and the updated design for better water-cooling support.

"The Z87H3-A3X motherboard from ECS has made a very good impression despite the fact that it is aimed at a considerably lower price point and we did not encounter the issues we have found on the Domination board."

RaidMax Vampire Review reported at 10:14 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: Overclockers Club
Article Quote:
With all that said and done, I feel the Raidmax Vampire has a lot of things going for it, but ultimately is held back by an unjustified price tag and some design issues. After spending ridiculous amounts of time with this chassis, I grew a bond to the look and style. I secretly hope Raidmax would switch out my chassis while I was sleeping so I could say only the good things, but alas it's still the same chassis with the same flaws. If you can find this for under $100 on sale and my gripes do not bother you, it's worth a second look. As it stands, however, the Raidmax Vampire falls short of my expectations.
