category: AMD Socket FM2+ Motherboards     website: Guru3D

"Overall a truly nice motherboard, just like the rest of the MSI gaming series. Definitely recommended. At the time of writing this article the product was not yet available in the stores though, hence we do not know the street price just yet."

Kingston HyperX Predator DDR3-2666 2x4GB Kit Review reported at 01:00 PM
category: DDR3 Memory     website: PC Perspective
Article Quote:
Bottom line, memory is more than just a check box on a system build, but past a certain point any additional performance will come down to either the needs of your build (i.e. integrated or discreet graphics), or specific applications.

Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD7 TH Review reported at 12:53 PM
category: Socket 1150 Motherboards     website: HardOCP
Article Quote:
"The Gigabyte Z87X-UD7-TH is likely not a base for an enthusiast without a lot of experience. The Z87X-UD7-TH is going to demand a lot of knowledge to push your CPU to the bleeding edge. That said getting a respectable 4.5GHz/1866MHz took very little effort or knowhow. There are software issues with the App Center, so I would not suggest thinking you could rely on fully controlling the motherboard BIOS from the desktop. The feature set is extremely deep for those of you that think you can take advantage of it."

SilverStone Argon AR04 Review reported at 12:44 PM
category: CPU Coolers     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
"When it’s installed in a slim case and you’ve finally got a cooler that can keep your low power Haswell chip company in your compact build, then you’ll be more than happy with what Silverstone have to offer and until there is a massive innovation in the world of cooling, you’ll struggle to find anything better in this form factor."

Cooler Master CM Storm Ceres 500 Review reported at 12:19 PM
category: headsets     website: ThinkComputers
Article Quote:
One of the few issues I had with the sound was the bass at some points in games would become distorted, mostly only happening when the explosions were close to each other. Other than that I enjoyed the CM Storm Ceres 500 in gaming, music, YouTube, and other normal usage.

PNY Turbo 3.0 Review reported at 11:47 AM
category: Tape/Zip/Jaz Drives     website: Big Bruin
Article Quote:
"Despite not performing quite as advertised, this PNY Turbo flash drive is an appealing choice because it offers 64GB of fairly fast storage for just $28 (and free shipping). I haven't found a cheaper USB 3.0 drive with this capacity and overall the performance is acceptable. While I have definitely used faster drives, I would have been more satisfied with this one if the published specification was lower and it was able to actually achieve those speeds."

AMD A10-7850K Performance Optimized Catalyst 14.2 Driver reported at 11:29 AM
category: AMD Socket FM2+ CPUs     website: Benchmark Reviews
Article Quote:
The bottom line is this: If you have upgraded to Kaveri, you need Catalyst 14.2 Beta. I would also update to 14.2 if you use an R5, R7, or R9 GPU, especially if you play Battlefield 4.

Thermaltake Core V71 Review reported at 11:22 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: NikKTech
Article Quote:
"Of course if you prefer complete silence over incredible airflow levels then the Core V71 Full Tower might not be the right case for you since that's not its purpose but for overclockers, gamers and enthusiasts in general i can't think of a PC Case with better cooling potential and airflow than this and that's why it gets our Platinum Award."

Azza XT1 Review reported at 11:12 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: Overclockers Club
Article Quote:
When it comes down to the choice whether to recommend or skip, I am in the middle. There is nothing wrong with this chassis other than minor things, and I think if the pros fall in line of what you want, then don't hesitate to buy this. Being an all-around chassis has its benefits, but generally that means the price goes up as well. This is definitely not overpriced for what you get, but on the other side, modding or using this for a custom water cooling setup isn't practical as nothing is modular. You get what you see and that can be more than enough for the majority of people.
