Intel Core i7-4960X Review reported at 12:07 PM
category: Socket 2011     website: Vortez
Article Quote:
Overall then, if you already own an Extreme processor then we see little need to upgrade unless that is power reduction means a great deal to you. I think it is fair to say, to most enthusiasts it doesn't. If on the other hand you are looking for the best of the best then you should certainly consider this processor. It is a powerhouse which will outperform everything this side of a Xeon. Just be aware that there are more feature packed chipsets available than X79 which, if rumours are correct, will be superseded itself in the near future which is likely to mean a new socket too rendering your £800 CPU useless on latter chipsets.

PowerColor R9 270X PCS+ Review reported at 12:05 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: LanOC
Article Quote:
With the card at $209.99 currently, it is cheaper the most of the other options, making it a good buy. If you have been holding onto your Christmas money for a new video card, this could be the one.

Gigabyte R9 280X WindForce 3X OC Review reported at 11:21 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: Hardware.Info
Article Quote:
The performance and energy consumption is in line with the other cards, but Gigabyte does have the low price going for it. However, the ASUS Radeon Matrix Platinum R9280X-P-3GD5 is even cheaper and also quieter.

ProlimaTech Lynx Review reported at 11:20 AM
category: CPU Coolers     website: ocaholic
Article Quote:
We can definitely recommend this cooler as it is a very good alternative to boxed and cheap looking coolers. The Prolimatech Lynx is high quality cooler with an aggressive price of 25 Euros, and even good enough to put to shame some higher priced and bigger coolers from its competitors.

Corsair Force LS 240GB Review reported at 10:37 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: HardwareCanucks
Article Quote:
In such a highly competitive market, a new SSD has to carve out a niche or it may be relegated to the back benches, never to be heard from again. This seems to be happening with the LS series since these drives are continually overlooked in favor of similarly priced, higher performing alternatives. With a few judicious price cuts we have no doubt the LS series and its Phison controller could shine but until that point, we’d recommend looking elsewhere for your price / performance fix.

Lian Li PC-Q27 Review reported at 10:34 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: Bjorn3D
Article Quote:
"Still, even with those negatives the Lian Li Q27 turns out to be a nice little mini-ITX case that easily will work well for most types of computers. With the right components it is virtually silent and we can definitely see this case used in a small Media PC connected to the TV streaming movies via XBMC or Plex and playing simpler games via Steam Big Screen."

Cooler Master CM Storm Havoc Review reported at 10:21 AM
category: Mice     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
CM Storm has a very oddly configured mouse in the Havoc. It is presumably designed for MMOs, but its grip type is more for FPS gamers and the sensor is not placed well. What is great, on the other hand, are its ergonomics, which are very close to being on par with the more expensive Mionix and SteelSeries mice. The issues do extend beyond the sensor placement as its buttons are a bit quirky; they have a relatively long travel time and very little tactile feedback, which makes them feel a bit sluggish, though they register every click.

Noctua NH-U14S Review reported at 10:08 AM
category: CPU Coolers     website: Overclockers Club
Article Quote:
It can be somewhat intimidating to get your head around the number of cooling solutions on the market today. If air cooling is right for you, make sure you consider Noctua's NH-U14S. It is easy to install and offers quiet, high-end cooling performance. The slim design solves the memory space / accesibility problem and still delivers high-end performance. Add the six-year warranty to the mix and you can't go wrong!

Cooler Master Nepton 140XL Review reported at 10:07 AM
category: CPU Coolers     website: Frosty Tech
Article Quote:
The larger diameter (15.5mm OD) Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene tubing, mix of 140mm fans and new generation pump head / waterblock have, for now, made quite the splash in the world of All-in-One CPU liquid coolers. Highly recommended.
