Asus Radeon R9 290X DirectCU II OC Review reported at 02:03 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: ocaholic
Article Quote:
Overall the Radeon R9 290X DirectCU II OC from ASUS is a very good graphics card. The noise level with the performance BIOS could be a tiny little bit better, but since it's a performance BIOS there is definitely nothing to seriously complain about. Also the pricing is appropriate. This card might cost 130 Euro more than a reference R9 290X but since it is as fast as a GeForce GTX 780 Ti, which costs the same, pricing is just about right.

Gigabyte Radeon R9 290X OC WindForce Review reported at 12:34 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: Hexus
Article Quote:
The prolonged wait for custom R9 290X cards has, we feel, taken away some of the lustre surrounding AMD's finest GPU. Gigabyte's WindForce OC proves that the very best Radeon can be made to run cooler and faster, and the firm's triple-fan solution remains a safe bet, but more needs to be done to ramp-up retail availability and, in turn, push pricing back down to a more agreeable level.

Corsair RM650 Review reported at 11:58 AM
category: Power Supplies     website: Guru3d
Article Quote:
Overall the RM series power supplies seem to be of nice build quality with good aesthetics and features. Now combined with the gold factor -- the Gold certified model at 90% efficiency at 50% load -- the PSU seems to be a winner.

Cooler Master GXII 650W Review reported at 11:47 AM
category: Power Supplies     website: LanOC
Article Quote:
The GXII should be a consideration for any build looking for solid performance at an affordable price. Equipped with a variety of connectors, including some floppy love and a thought-that-counts USB 2.0 non-stop power function, there should be no problem finding power in a medium-end gaming build. The HDB fan upgrade is a nice touch, but if you’re looking for further enthusiast features such as sleeving, modularity, or the best efficiency, I’d recommend browsing some of Cooler Master’s other offerings. However, if you’re looking for the power and reliability your rig needs without the paying enthusiast premiums, the GXII line should be at the top of your list.

Asus Radeon R9 270 DirectCU II Review reported at 11:32 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: Hardware.Info
Article Quote:
The 975 MHz ASUS R9270-DC2OC-2GD5 is as fast as the MSI Radeon R9 270 Gaming and slightly faster on average than the Sapphire Radeon R9 270 Dual-X. The card from ASUS does get a little warmer, but nothing to worry about. The ASUS card is quieter than Sapphire's, but louder than MSI's.
