be quiet Dark Power Pro P10 Review reported at 01:02 PM
category: Power Supplies     website: ocaholic
Article Quote:
With the Dark Power Pro 10 850W be quiet! released a true high-end product, featuring a costly AC filtering stage and the massive use of Nippon Chemi-Con capacitors. These are things which you would expect from the highest quality power supply unit and it is hard to find on other PC PSU, which are built according to similar standards. Furthermore, this is a very reliable PSU even if you plan it for a long term usage. As you could see from our review, we were quite impressed with be quiet!'s Dark Power Por 10 850W PSU and thus our conclusion is not far away from it. be quiet! certainly outdid itself with the Dark Power Pro 10 850W.

Crucial Ballistix Sport XT DDR3-1866 2x8GB Kit Review reported at 01:00 PM
category: DDR3 Memory     website: Hardcoreware
Article Quote:
In the end, I can’t see any reason not to recommend this kit if it matches the looks and heatsink size you are going for. I rarely have luck with overclocking Crucial memory though, so if you intend to run it far beyond spec, that is something to consider. Looking at how little real world performance is gained from overclocking though, that should be a moot point for most. If you are gaming on an IGP, you will want to opt for at least 1866 MHz memory, and get the fastest kit you can afford.

Sapphire R9 290X Review reported at 12:57 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: Ultimate Hardware
Article Quote:
"The Sapphire Radeon R9 290x performed great against the Sapphire Radeon R9 280x. The Sapphire Radeon R9 290x beat the Sapphire Radeon R9 280x by between 8% to 26% and by 20% on average. The Sapphire Radeon R9 290x costs 45% more than the Sapphire Radeon R9 280x and delivers 20% extra game performance. The Sapphire Radeon R9 290x is TDP 250 which is the same as the Sapphire Radeon R9 280x which has TDP 250. This means the Sapphire Radeon R9 290x has a little room for overclocking. Both the Sapphire Radeon R9 290x and Sapphire Radeon R9 280x were fairly quiet in operation but the Sapphire Radeon R9 280x was quieter. The Sapphire Radeon R9 290x is a great video card which delivers great performance which is why ultimate hardware makes the Sapphire Radeon R9 290x the best buy although the Sapphire Radeon R9 280x gave great performance as well."

D-Link DIR-868L Review reported at 12:51 PM
category: Internet Routers     website: Hardware.Info
Article Quote:
"All things considered, if you want the best performance, the D-Link DIR-868L is a router you want. The test results are excellent and the interface responds quickly compared to that of other brands. If we're to be nitpicky, the interface use a 2013 facelift, or D-Link could move more of the options to the app instead."

HIS Radeon R7 260X iPower IceQ X2 Review reported at 12:45 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: MadShrimps
Article Quote:
We would recommend the card for playing the latest games at medium to high detail levels at 1680x1050; when running at Full HD we may need to lower the detail levels most of the time in order to reach playable status.

Gigabyte GTX 780 Ti OC & GTX 780 GHz Edition Review reported at 12:40 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: TechSpot
Article Quote:
Those ratios don't bode particularly well for Nvidia's GTX 780 Ti, which seems like it might find itself in company with the GTX Titan. If you want the fastest single-GPU available, you'll have to pay for it and that's always going to be the case. At the end of the day, we really like the GTX 780 Ti OC and GTX 780 GHz Edition -- especially the latter -- but the reality is that AMD's R9 290 offers similarly rock solid results for $300 less, and that's enough savings to sway our recommendation for now.

OCZ Vector 150 Review reported at 12:33 PM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: HardwareCanucks
Article Quote:
The Vector 150 is one the best SSDs currently available. It offers an envious blend of longevity and long-term performance without the obscene markups normally seen from other drives in its class. This really is a near-perfect blend in a market categorized by clones and rebrands. However, some serious questions about OCZ’s future may impede the Vector 150 from being the sales success it should be.

Sapphire Toxic R9 280X OC Review reported at 12:32 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
If you’re looking for the best AMD Radeon R9 280X money can buy, in terms of prestige and performance, then the Sapphire R9 280X Toxic Edition is the graphics card to consider. For a modest premium over the price of a normal R9 280X you can be snapping at the heels of a GTX 780 or R9 290. Furthermore, Sapphire’s innovative Tri-X cooling solution does a solid job of regulating the large amount of heat produced by the power hungry overclocked R9 280X GPU. It’s Toxic, but in a good way!

Fractal Design Adjust 108 Review reported at 12:18 PM
category: Monitor Coolers     website: Techware Labs
Article Quote:
Overall I was impressed with the Fractal Design Adjust 108 fan controller. The elegant brushed aluminum face should blend in nicely with just about any case and the low-profile sliders will allow you to use the controller in cases with a front door where knobs would get in the way. The sliders have a sturdy action to them that gives you a sense of the overall build quality which is superb. With 6 channels and the capability of pushing 36W each, power should not be an issue, even with high-end powerful fans. My only complaint with the Adjust 108 is that you can’t completely turn off a fan, but this really isn’t a deal breaker. If you are looking for a quality fan controller in the $20-40 price range, the Fractal Design Adjust 108 would be a great choice.

XFX R9 280X Black OC Edition Review reported at 11:47 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
The XFX R9 280X is a very nice card. Firstly, the out-of-the-box overclock is highly aggressive giving some excellent performance numbers that we certainly didn’t expect to see for its modest price. Compared to other R9 280X cards we’ve tested the power consumption is relatively tame and the temperatures are also impressive too, sitting at around 70-75~ degrees at maximum Furmark load. While the noise results weren’t that flattering in numerical terms I was still impressed by XFX’s R9 280X because the tonality of the noise is very subtle, not sharp and piercing like a stock blower fan cooler. This is thanks to XFX’s impressive new Double Dissipation cooler where the fans are silent other than the noise of the air movement, so the noise is a lot more natural than a blower style fan where the mechanical noise is very piercing. The aesthetics are excellent too, XFX have really changed the design for the better in my opinion and the build quality seems a lot sharper than previous HD 7970 Double Dissipation graphics cards. It really is a subtle looking piece that would look great in most cases, just watch out for the 11.5 inch length that could cause problems in smaller cases.

HIS R9 280X iPower IceQ X2 Review reported at 11:23 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: Bjorn3D
Article Quote:
While the AMD Radeon 280X might not be the card to challenge GTX 780 and GTX Titan (that would be the 290X) it still turns out to be a excellent card for the money. Easily matching and in many cases beating the GTX 770 and still producing high framerates at higher resolutions one or even two cards in Crossfire will give you a lot of bang for the buck. HIS offering is nice since it not only comes with a great cooler but also is overclocked from the start. If there is anything we can complain about it is the lack of bundle of the card. No games are included and we do not even get a mini-display to displayport-adapter, something we feel is a bit cheap.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 780 GHz Edition Windforce 3X Review reported at 10:58 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: ocaholic
Article Quote:
In the meantime we can say that it is a good card, if the price premium is not that high, making the GTX 780 GHz Edition one of the best GTX 780 graphics cards on the market. We recommend this card as an alternative to the more expensive GTX Titan and GTX 780 Ti since the 780 GHz Edition is faster, less expensive and quieter.

Gigabyte Force M7 Thor Review reported at 10:56 AM
category: Mice     website: Benchmark Reviews
Article Quote:
The Force M7 Thor can rival any mid-range gaming mouse on the market in terms of performance. I was extremely impressed with almost all facets of the peripheral from the incredibly solid performing laser to the tactile feel of the left and right clicks.

eVGA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Superclocked ACX Review reported at 10:53 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
"The GTX 780 Ti is clearly a premium product, which its pricing reflects. If you need to save money and can take the noise, the AMD's Radeon 290 Series could be an alternative. While I haven't reviewed any other custom GTX 780 Ti cards yet, the EVGA GTX 780 Ti SC with ACX cooler definitely sets the bar high for the competition."

Thermaltake Toughpower DPS 850W Review reported at 10:45 AM
category: Power Supplies     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
"Thermaltake's new Toughpower DSP line looks incredibly promising since the DPS-850 I evaluated today excelled in most areas while easily meeting the tough competition, mostly derived from Corsair, head on. I am really looking forward to the DSP Platinum units that will be released soon and hope Thermaltake will manage to keep their prices at reasonable levels."
