Zalman LQ310 Review reported at 01:54 PM
category: Hard Drive Coolers     website: Frosty Tech
Article Quote:
"The compact LQ310 liquid CPU cooler offers good performance on sub-150W TDP processors like the Intel LGA115x, but it does so with moderate noise. The best bet is to buy a second 120mm fan and attach it to the rear of the heat exchanger. This makes us wonder why Zalman didn't package the LQ310 with two fans in the first place? On the 200W Intel LGA2011/1366 synthetic thermal test platform, Zalman's LQ310 simply isn't competitive. It's not bad, but in the realm of water coolers where most consumers are seeking better cooling performance than a air cooled heatsink can deliver, the LQ310 falls short. If you're a computer enthusiast dead set on liquid cooling, you're going to be better off with a 240mm or 280mm heat exchanger equipped water cooler."

Synology DS214play Review reported at 11:04 AM
category: Storage Accessories     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
"The DS214play is an excellent NAS, which I would call flawless if it only had an HDMI and a couple of audio out/in ports. But not everything in this world is perfect, including the DS214play. Yet I still think that the DS214play is an excellent NAS for use at home, with rich multimedia-streaming capabilities, and it will, according to my multi-client tests, even easily handle the needs of a small office, though its multimedia features would most likely pass by unnoticed in such environments, making the Synology DS214+ a more suitable choice."

Asus GeForce GTX 780 Poseidon Platinum Review reported at 10:56 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: ocaholic
Article Quote:
"With the GeForce GTX 780 Poseidon Platinum, ASUS comes with a very interesting and unique product. We really like the idea of hybrid cooling introduced with the DirectCU H2O that allows users to choose how they want to chill their card. It also allows watercooling the card out of the box without voiding the warranty. 3D performance as well as cooling performance are good and we also like the fact that the card is equiped with a full backplate."

Synology DS214se Review reported at 10:33 AM
category: Storage Accessories     website: Hardware.Info
Article Quote:
"The huge number of features and apps available for the Disk Station Manager firmware is both a strong point and a potential pitfall. If you want to take advantage of many of them, you will need a more powerful model. However, since you can install all software intended for the high-end NAS devices as well, it's a great way to get acquainted with the possibilities of a Synology NAS device."

QNAP TS-470 Review reported at 10:26 AM
category: Storage Accessories     website: Benchmark Reviews
Article Quote:
The TS-470 Turbo NAS server may be overkill for the enthusiast at home, but it looks like a great fit for the SOHO market. Just make sure the networking infrastructure is in place to maximize the overall performance.

eVGA Z87 FTW Review reported at 10:17 AM
category: Socket 1150 Motherboards     website: Hardcoreware
Article Quote:
"When you have the Z87X-UD5H with quite a few extra features, especially in terms of software, it may be a tough sell. Not that I think one is signficantly better than the other – one just has more to offer (extra ethernet, better onboard sound, better software features). Whether you need those things is up to you to decide. Price notwithstanding, the Z87 FTW is a solid motherboard, and was a pleasure to review."

AMD FX-9590 & FX-9370 Review reported at 10:07 AM
category: Socket AM3+ CPUs     website: Hardware.Info
Article Quote:
AMDs FX series is definitely still relevant, especially the FX-6300 CPU but also the FX-8350 offer great value. The FX-9370 and FX-9590, however, will go down in history as an interesting yet pointless experiment.
