Xigmatek Nebula Review reported at 12:48 PM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
The chassis looks good, is easy to work with, makes good use of aluminum, but does not offer the level of engineering internally as other manufacturers that use the same material mixture. Grabbing the chassis is then certainly a good call if you like what you see as that is one of the more important facets of a chassis meant to be used in a HTPC setting.

"While the DS414j may not have the performance of some Synology models it has more than enough for the average user but more importantly, all the functionality we would need at a more accessible price."

AMD Radeon R9 295X2 CrossFire Review reported at 12:40 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: HardOCP
Article Quote:
There are still some loose ends that need to be tied up in both terms of scaling and compatibility with certain titles. Hopefully we will see solutions soon. The issues of huge power draw and the properly configured system creating huge amounts of heat, are however not going away. It is quite likely you will need a dedicated 15amp circuit with nothing else on that wiring. If you have a 20amp circuit you will have a bit of room to breath, but not much. Caveats aside...AMD Radeon R9 295X2 "QuadFire" gaming at 4K with incredibly high in-game quality settings is an incredible experience.

AMD Radeon R9 295X2 CrossFire at 4K Performance reported at 12:38 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: PC Perspective
Article Quote:
However, many of those willing to shell out $3000 for graphics cards are probably still wondering if the investment is worth it. I have ALWAYS stated that getting the maximum performance single GPU card tends to be the best solution for high end gaming. With today’s hardware, if you are targeting a resolution like 4K (3840x2160), that might be an impossible task. Even the R9 290X and GTX 780 Ti can’t hand Crysis 3 there. So if you can’t fall back to a single GPU, I think the fewer GPUs the better – the fewer problems and potential hiccups you’ll run into. So maybe a single Radeon R9 295X2 is the right solution for you.

A-DATA XPG V2 DDR3-2600 2x4GB Kit Review reported at 12:29 PM
category: DDR3 Memory     website: Techware Labs
Article Quote:
"All in all, I wasn’t very pleased with the ADATA XPG V2 2600 MHz kit. Although the performance was quite impressive, it’s fairly low profile, and it looks pretty good, the fact that it is clocked at such a strange speed means that you have to play with the base clock which is a very tricky situation and can cause problems for other components. The XMP profile caused problems on our setup right away, giving benchmark scores much lower than expected which didn’t go away at all until the speed was dropped down to 2400. Even at 2400 MHz though this kit was able to beat out all but the highest-end server machines. But considering the issues and the minor performance gain you are bound to get by increasing speed, you would probably be better off just going with the 2400 MHz kit."

SilverStone Tundra TD03 Review reported at 12:06 PM
category: CPU Coolers     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
There is a lot to love about the Silverstone Tundra TD03, it’s refreshing to see a unique looking product in a market full of Asetek hardware and it’s even better that it out performs almost everything else in its class. It looks great, performs even better and it comes from a brand name that has a sock solid reputation for quality. Simply one of the best 120mm water coolers you could ever hope for.

Kingston DataTraveler Mini 3.0 16GB DTM30 Review reported at 12:00 PM
category: Tape/Zip/Jaz Drives     website: Big Bruin
Article Quote:
"In addition to being a good choice as a daily use flash drive due to its small, portable size, I could see this drive being an excellent choice for someone with an in car entertainment system that features a USB port for media. Once your files are loaded on to the drive, write speeds will be of no concern in this setting. The drive's simple physical design, small footprint, and respectable read speeds will all be welcome features."

Noctua NH-D15 Review reported at 11:16 AM
category: CPU Coolers     website: Frosty Tech
Article Quote:
Bottom line, Noctua's NH-D15 twin tower CPU cooler is an excellent heatsink for Intel and AMD platforms, particularly if a self-contained watercooling system isn't the direction you want to take your computer system. Highly recommended.

category: Socket 2011 Motherboards     website: Overclockers Club
Article Quote:
After spending a good deal of time with this board I got to know it pretty well. It's built for a niche customer at $499, but it offers up a feature set you cannot get anywhere else. Great sound, great build quality, great cooling, and great looks; it's got it all.
