OCZ Vertex 450 Review reported at 12:43 PM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: LanOC
Article Quote:
The Vertex 450 isn’t too far off in price from the latest Vector drive, making it a tough choice when you take into account the performance and warranty differences. What warranty difference you ask? Well The Vertex 450 comes with a 3 year warranty while the Vector drives get you a 5 year warranty.

Super Flower Leadex Gold 1300W Review reported at 12:33 PM
category: Power Supplies     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
"To wrap up, if you need gargantuan amounts of power to feed three or more high-end VGAs along with other power hungry components, the large Leadex unit is your only stop since its price/performance ratio is probably the best in its category. Its close competitor, which is available in the US, is the EVGA G2 1300 W unit; it costs a little more, at least in the EU, where both units are available, has a lower combined capacity bulk caps total, and doesn't sport the FDB fan the SF unit uses. However, EVGA offers a ten years warranty instead of five, and SF's unit unfortunately won't find its way into the US market. SF apparently has an agreement with some companies not to enter the region, but as I already mentioned, you will find their products under other brands there."

Cooler Master Cosmos SE Review reported at 12:22 PM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: MadShrimps
Article Quote:
Cooler Master has succeeded to build a mini-version of the award-winning Cosmos II which looks very nice, especially with the left side Plexiglas window. The thing we have spotted was the fact that even if the case is marketed as a full-tower, the actual enclosure size if we exclude the bottom and top handles resembles more likely a midi-tower.

SteelSeries Siberia Elite Review reported at 12:13 PM
category: headsets     website: Benchmark Reviews
Article Quote:
This is a high price to pay for a headset but I think the Siberia Elite might just be worth the asking price. At this price range you will be looking at top PC brands and wireless/surround headsets. I would suggest using it with a dedicated sound card or if you are confident in your on-board sound then use it like that, as the USB sound card is a little underwhelming.

The CM 690 III definitely is worth the money, though we would have liked to see some of the CM 690 II’s key features make a return.

QNAP TS-470 Review reported at 11:48 AM
category: Storage Accessories     website: Hardware.Info
Article Quote:
The QNAP TS-470 does use a lot of power and it's expensive. It's a great NAS nevertheless, but since there's also the even more expensive and powerful TS-470 Pro, we'll give the TS-470 a Silver Award.

Corsair Hydro H105 Review reported at 11:47 AM
category: CPU Coolers     website: MadShrimps
Article Quote:
"The Hydro H105 is a high performance All In One unit, without hesitation it can take over from the previous flagship, the H100i. This time no software customization of looks and adding other peripherals. Just some simple, yet effective aesthetic changes make this Hydro H105 a stunning looking performer. How you want it to perform lies entirely in your hands. The assembly is as straightforward as it can be, room for error has been minimized to the max. This all makes the Hydro H105 another great addition to the ever growing Hydro series lineup. Therefore Madshrimps happily awards the CORSAIR Hydro H105 the Performance Award !"

BitFenix Prodigy M Review reported at 11:35 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: PureOverclock.com
Article Quote:
I am not sure if BitFenix intended for it to be so, but the Prodigy M has deemed the original obsolete. You now have the same small footprint, better cable routing, better cooling options, better drive locations and the ability to install mini ITX and micro ATX into the same case. For an HTPC, LAN PC or a powerful gaming PC, the $99 for the Prodigy M will be money well spent.

BitFenix Ronin Review reported at 11:31 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: DarkVision Hardware
Article Quote:
The BitFenix Ronin delivers excellent build quality and a very classy, functional design. The interior is roomy enough for extra-long multi-GPU configurations, has ample storage room and great support for watercooling. One minor issue is that there are only two fans included, which may result in insufficient airflow in a high-end gaming system. Other than that there's little to complain about this case, it will do everything you can reasonably expect from it. The biggest problem perhaps is that it's priced a little too high, with a retail price of 70EUR ($99) it doesn't really stand out in the crowded computer enthusiast case market.

Cougar CMX V.3 850 Review reported at 11:25 AM
category: Power Supplies     website: NikKTech
Article Quote:
"Regardless of the price however the CMX V.3 850W PSU is a good choice for gamers and casual users which is exactly what Cougar advertises it for. Had this been a PSU aimed towards enthusiasts, overclockers and professionals it wouldn't meet our expectations but since that's not the case it walks away with our Golden Award if only just barely."
