Inno3D iChill GeForce GTX 780 HerculeZ X3 Ultra Review reported at 11:27 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: Hexus
Article Quote:
The GeForce GTX 780 still makes sense if overclocked and priced correctly. Inno3D does both of these things well with its behemoth of a card. Arguably the best enthusiast card in its class.

eVGA Z87 Stinger Review reported at 11:22 AM
category: Socket 1150 Motherboards     website: PC Perspective
Article Quote:
"Performance-wise, the Z87 Stinger performed on-par or better than its competitors with a single exception, its measured memory bandwidth. The board exhibited a full 4k less memory bandwidth than the other Intel Z87-based boards, even though the memory was verified to be running at 1600MHz and in Dual Channel mode. However, this decrease in bandwidth seemed to be more of a notable oddity than an actual performance issue, since the board performed as well or better than other Z87 boards across the other benchmark tests."

Intel Core i5-2500K vs. AMD A10-6800K Gaming Performance reported at 11:16 AM
category: Intel Socket 1155 CPUs     website: ocaholic
Article Quote:
Having a closer look at the results we gathered while testing eight different games and two different benchmarks with two different presets, we see that the Intel Core i5-2500K, with our "low-preset" is on average 37.9 percent faster than the AMD A10-6800K. Switching to our "high-preset" makes the Intel Core i5-2500K's become 7.9 percent quicker than the AMD A10-6800K. Overclocking the Intel Core i5-2500K to 4.5 GHz makes the performance with our "low-preset" go up by almost 14 percent but when it comes to the high-preset the increase in performance is only 2 percent. Regarding the AMD A10-6800K the situation is similar: 1.6 percent gain with "low-preset" and 0.15 percent with "high-preset". What's quite interesting to see is how the wattage of our test system increased while maintaining 4.5 GHz stably. The Intel Core i5-2500K needed an additional 14 percent more power and in case of the 6800K we had to notice, that the CPU had been throttling and this despite the fact, that we were using a powerful aircooler - Phanteks PH-TC14PE.

Asus GeForce GTX 760 MARS Review reported at 11:09 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
If you want to reduce cost and can live with the noise, AMD's R9 290X ($550) and R9 290 ($400) offer much better performance per dollar. If ASUS can bring the price of the MARS GTX 760 down to around $400, which doesn't seem impossible to me, it could become a real alternative since engineering on the card is almost flawless; it's just the price that kills it.

All things considered, the ASUS RT-AC68U is an excellent router and earns the Hardware.Info Silver Award. The performance isn't quite there for a Gold Award.

Logitech G19s Review reported at 10:30 AM
category: Keyboards     website: Overclockers Club
Article Quote:
It is a great keyboard – don't get me wrong. It has a lot to offer: full RGB color, LCD screen, macros, Windows key toggle, media keys, number pad, and a nice wrist rest. It has the quality Logitech build and isn't hard on the eyes either; however it is NOT mechanical. That is a pro in some ways – some don't like mechs and it is a hell of a lot quieter than a mechanical. But for the price, the gimmicky screen isn't enough to get me – I expect mechanical keys or at least the option at this price.

category: CPU Coolers     website: techPowerUp!

I am, overall, impressed by the design and what Prolimatech accomplished using it; however, including some fans would certainly go a long way in making this a far more competitive product.
