RaidMax Horus Review reported at 05:46 PM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: Overclockers Club
Article Quote:
Overall Raidmax did a great job with the chassis, but because of a few issues, you just have to remember it's a budget chassis rather than a gold star.

Cooler Master Glacer 240L Review reported at 12:11 PM
category: CPU Coolers     website: Modders-Inc
Article Quote:
Temperatures were great with the PWM function of the Gigabyte motherboard set to Normal. Fan noise was very noticeable with both the Blademaster and JetFlo fans. However, if you can stand 70°C at full load move to the quieter JetFlo fans. I can’t wait to see what Cooler Master and Swiftech come out with next.

Koolance EXT-440CU Review reported at 12:08 PM
category: CPU Coolers     website: PC Perspective
Article Quote:
"The Koolance EXT-440CU liquid cooling unit gives the user a superb amount of flexibility without compromising cooling performance. In conjunction with a stock or overclocked CPU, the unit was able to keep the system stable withe temperatures rivaling some of the other top cooling systems tested. Combine this with the pump and fan speed configurability that the unit provides and you have a viable contender."

Raijintek Nemesis Review reported at 12:01 PM
category: CPU Coolers     website: ocaholic
Article Quote:
"With the Nemesis, Raijintek created a powerful CPU cooler, that also features good looks and finish. Overall build quality is definitely good and for instance the nickel plated and polished base plate leaves an excellent impression. Apart from that there is the sheer cooling performance that has been combined with decent fans, which when you run them at 7 Volt are very silent. Another good thing about this cooler is socket compatibility. This cooler can be installed on all sockets since LGA775."

Thermaltake SMART M Review reported at 11:49 AM
category: Power Supplies     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
Thermaltake’s Smart M550W power supply is a decent offering for a budget power supply unit. Intended for an entry level or mid range system it has all the main features you’d need including 80 Plus Bronze efficiency, a modular design, good quiet cooling, affordability and a 3 year warranty. Relative to the competition the Thermaltake Smart M550W is lacking in ripple suppression and voltage stability at extreme loads but in general this is still a competitive power supply that is worth considering if you’re looking to build a sub-550W system.

The H75 is easily one of the best options on the market within this price range, it has great performance when overclocking your CPU, it’s incredibly easy to install and the inclusion of two fans makes it great value for money.

If you blew your budget buying fast fans and you cannot stand the noise, the Thermaltake Commander F5 might deserve a home at the front of your case. Just don't point it at your bed since the lights will blind you even in your sleep!

Cooler Master CM Storm Ceres 500 Review reported at 11:29 AM
category: headsets     website: APH Networks
Article Quote:
All in all, being able to package everything they have offered for around $77 USD at press time is amazing. The CM Storm Ceres 500 is so much more than just an iteration of the Ceres 400, and is something Cooler Master should be proud of producing.

Asus Rampage IV Black Review reported at 11:20 AM
category: Socket 2011 Motherboards     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
The ASUS RAMPAGE IV BLACK EDITION definitely takes the cake for me when it comes time to overclock hard, handily flaunting its ability to push the limits while also filled with features most gamers will enjoy. The high-end ROG SupremeFX BLACK audio solution, ASUS's ROG OC Panel, and everything else in the box comes together to perfectly match the needs of any high-end user, so much so that it is still hard to find the board in stock, although it launched several weeks ago. The ASUS RAMPAGE IV BLACK EDITION has been snatched up faster than stores can keep it in stock. Bringing that much excitement to what many consider a tired platform that is over two years old is not something that can be ignored, and for that, I have to congratulate ASUS on a job well done.

GAMDIAS Zeus eSport Edition Review reported at 11:14 AM
category: Mice     website: ocaholic
Article Quote:
Overall Gamidas have been trying very hard in creating a unique gaming mouse but they might have lost focus when it comes to ergonomics. We would love to see a shape that is suitable almost any kind of hand size. Other than that gliding characteristics could be improved by for example using large glide pads. Other than that the buttons could be a bit more comfortable and overall the price tag is rather steep.

Cooler Master Cosmos II Review reported at 11:05 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
If you’re looking to build a system that is worthy of the title “Enthusiast Grade” then there are a few great chassis options on the market, however, very few of them come close to what the Cosmos II has to offer and while it may be a couple of years old it can still compete with newer offerings on the market.

Mach Xtreme MXUB3MLX Review reported at 11:04 AM
category: Tape/Zip/Jaz Drives     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
"Over the last few years we have been seeing the price of flash-based storage drop considerably to levels that we once dreamed of. As a result drives such as the MX-LX from Mach Xtreme are now able to offer us capacities that were only once a dream, but for a price that is far more manageable. With cost everything in today’s economy, this drive is a fantastic addition to the flash drive lineup and one of the best bargains that is around at the moment."

"In the world of professional-grade monitors, the NEC PA272W is literally head and shoulders above the competition.

Antec HCP-1300 Platinum Review reported at 10:34 AM
category: Power Supplies     website: NikKTech
Article Quote:
"Overall Antec has created what seems to be the ideal power supply unit for people who plan on using ultra high end quad graphics card configurations and although I’d personally like it more had it delivered 1500W instead of 1300W the OC link makes up for that (although the cost will be a lot higher). Long story short you just can't go wrong with the latest HCP-1300 PSU by Antec even if you are the most demanding enthusiast, professional or overclocker and that's why it gets our Platinum Award."

SilentiumPC Fera 2 HE1224 Review reported at 10:18 AM
category: CPU Coolers     website: Frosty Tech
Article Quote:
"Bottom line, the SilentiumPC Fera2 HE1224 is a good low noise tower heatsink at stock fan speed. It's not the coolest performing thermal solution in any of the three charts by a long stretch, but when noise output is taken into consideration, the Fera2 HE1224 heatsink offers competitive results and is worth considering."
