Antec HCG-750M Review reported at 01:55 PM
category: Power Supplies     website: APH Networks
Article Quote:
The Antec High Current Gamer M 750W is a great choice for those looking for a well designed and efficient mainstream power supply. With an 80 Plus Bronze rating, Seasonic design, and a full set of Japanese capacitors, the Antec High Current Gamer M 750W is a good pick in the market today. The fan can get a bit loud on heavy loads due to the included ADDA fan, but since it is a 135mm fan, you are not likely to hit super high speeds that quickly or that often. The option to turn the LED on and off is certainly a great feature to boot.

Super Flower Leadex Gold 750W Review reported at 01:52 PM
category: Power Supplies     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
"One thing is sure: You can't go wrong with an SF product, and the Leadex Gold 750 W I tested today is solid proof of that. Its performance is on par with the umber-high-end competition in this category, and its price, although high, is still competitive. If 750 W are enough to cover your needs and you want one of the best platforms available today, this Leadex Gold unit is the ideal candidate. The only problem will be finding it anywhere in the US since Super Flower products are not available over there, although you can find SF product rebrands in the States."

Enermax Fulmo-ST Review reported at 01:46 PM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: ocaholic
Article Quote:
The new Enermax Fulmo ST is quite a good case and offers a lot of different features. We liked the flexibility regarding cooling options and the space for high-end graphics card. Fulmo ST is well made, the steel frame is solid and the finish is in line with the products tested in the same price range. Last but not least is the price, which is very good for a windowed mid-tower case.

Intel SSD 730 Review reported at 01:44 PM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: PC Perspective
Article Quote:
"The SSD 730 performs very well, with the highest IOPS figures we've seen at low queue depths. That said, we are left wondering if a 7-10x power draw as compared to the closest competitor is worth the marginal gain in performance."

ThermoLab ITX30 Review reported at 01:30 PM
category: CPU Coolers     website: Hardcoreware
Article Quote:
"The ThermoLab ITX30 provides enough cooling to allow you to push the CPU spec further in extremely small enclosures, and that itself is worth the price of admission. Speaking of which, it is also quite affordable compared to the competition, at just around $30."

Cooler Master CM Storm Reaper Review reported at 01:22 PM
category: Mice     website: Benchmark Reviews
Article Quote:
Even though the Reaper isn’t immediately available as of this writing, it will be released with an approximate MSRP of $65. If one is patient it may even be available at a cheaper price point. Considering the Reaper offers not only a decent base feature set, but went the extra mile on the wheel and clutch control, this is a fair price, but would fall into a more optimal scoring range if it was in the $50 range.

AMD A10-7850K & A10-7700K w/ R7 240 & 250 Hybrid CrossFire Performance reported at 01:16 PM
category: AMD Socket FM2+ CPUs     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
AMD’s Dual Graphics technology has improved a lot since it’s first implementation. It offers the potential to scale the performance of your APU for a relatively small cost and without adding much power consumption to your system. Yet at the core of AMD Dual Graphics is a fundamental flaw – it isn’t an economically sensible decision unless you already own an APU. For the vast majority of consumers you would benefit more from pairing an unlocked AMD Athlon CPU with a powerful R7 series graphics card within the same budget – this option offers much more performance for the same, or a lower, cost. The technology is novel but until it is optimised better and until entry level AMD cards become significantly cheaper than the mid-range ones, it probably won’t appeal to many people.

Netgear D6200 Review reported at 01:04 PM
category: Internet Routers     website: HardwareHeaven
Article Quote:
"In terms of performance we couldn't find much to fault the D6200. We were able to stream HD content quickly across our network, even when we move our player down from our office to the livingroom on the ground floor. We could skip through content quickly and the D6200 was able to handle the jumps in the video timeline without much delay at all. Additionally, we didn't notice any drop outs in the wireless signal around the house, until we moved outside, the D6200 provided a strong signal at all times."

Avexir Blitz 1.1 Original DDR3-2400 2x4GB Kit Review reported at 12:44 PM
category: DDR3 Memory     website: pcGameware.co.uk
Article Quote:
"Great looking, good performance RAM from Avexir, with a somewhat subtle (nice though!) strobe LED lighting effect, that definitely looks kind of cool. Price is high as one would expect for these custom designed modules, but that’s to be expected in my opinion. Avexir need to sort out their packaging though..."

BitFenix Flo Review reported at 12:31 PM
category: headsets     website: pcGameware.co.uk
Article Quote:
BitFenix have produced a little bit of a shocker here. Instead of picking up a headset, covering it in SofTouch and branding it their own, or suddenly thinking ‘Hey, we can make some money out of headsets, lets bang out any old rubbish, sit back and reap the benefits!’, they seem to have really done their research and come up with something a little bit special.
