Phanteks Enthoo Pro Review reported at 12:21 PM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: Modders-Inc
Article Quote:
"I would dare say that the Phanteks Enthoo Pro is my new favorite mid-tower case. Not only for its large roomy design, but because build quality was above and beyond was I was expecting. I was fully expecting to get a solid case, however the fact that about 85% of the case can be disassembled with a screw driver, yet it maintains the most rigid structure of any mid-tower case I’ve ever used, is a huge plus. Initially I thought that the $100 price tag might be a bit steep for a mid-tower case. That was until I started moving the case around and installing hardware into it."

NVIDIA Shield Review reported at 12:16 PM
category: Android     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
“I think Nvidia are facing an uphill battle in terms of marketing, there is a fiercely competitive and much more established portable console market from the likes of Sony and Nintendo, while many of us also already have tablets, smartphones and other devices that do a pretty good job of mobile gaming. The kicker for Nvidia of course is that anyone I know that has tried the Shield has quickly become a convert to the green side. If you think mobile gaming sucks (like I did), then it’s because you’ve not played on one of these, it’s a simple as that. It’s a big investment, but still great value for money and the range of features is enough to keep you tinkering and experimenting with the Shield for a very long time.

Cooler Master V850 Review reported at 11:50 AM
category: Power Supplies     website: HardOCP
Article Quote:
The Cooler Master V850 represents a very safe and conservative approach from Cooler Master in rebuilding its lacking power supply brand. We had nothing but good experiences with the Cooler Master V850 and it proved to be an extremely good power supply. The V850’s voltage regulation was excellent, the efficiency was excellent, the Transient Load Test results were very good, the DC output quality was good to very good, and the V850 unit was very quiet in our testing. On top that, the unit featured high quality integration and component selection.

beyerdynamic MMX 300 Review reported at 11:48 AM
category: headsets     website: pcGameware.co.uk
Article Quote:
"Yes that’s right I said it; the beyerdynamic MMX 300 IS the best sounding headset that I have ever heard. But of course I need to try and quantify this (and of course this is somewhat subjective). If there was one word that I would use to sum up the excellent sound produced by the MMX 300, it would be; DETAIL! After all they say the devil’s in the detail. You get the impression that you hear so much more with the MMX 300, subtler sounds come into play, background music seems to have real depth. The lows are deep; the rumbling as the attack approaches during the Metro Last Light benchmark again has real depth and detail. The highs are shrill too, gunfire is as chilling as ever especially in Survarium, where the gun-fire sound is some of the finest I’ve heard. All of this is also delivered with such control, that you can’t help but be impressed. But some folks don’t like honesty (which is what the MMX 300 delivers), some prefer bass, bass and more bass, if that’s you then the MMX 300 is not for you (that’s not to say the MMX 300 is lacking in bass though)."

Kingston HyperX Fury White DDR3-1866 2x4GB Kit Review reported at 11:15 AM
category: DDR3 Memory     website: PureOverclock.com
Article Quote:
"Despite this high overclock, we found that the Kingston HyperX Fury memory hit a sweet spot. The 2400MHz frequency seems to be where it performed at its best in terms of speed and latency testing. Once we move higher with the frequency, the timings loosened up, which caused a drop in performance levels. However, latency was slightly better with the higher frequencies, so this obviously depends on your needs. In the long run, we found that running at 2400MHz gave us the best speed to latency performance ratio overall."

category: Keyboards     website: ThinkComputers
Article Quote:
Overall the Corsair Raptor K50 has been a nice keyboard for around the office and MMO gaming due to the macros. The RGB lighting is an amazing feature that will probably be a standard on most key gaming LED keyboards in the future.

Synology DS214se Review reported at 11:03 AM
category: Storage Accessories     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
I think the DS214se is a fine option for users that don't want to spend a fortune on a NAS and don't need hot-swappable HDDs since it packs all the features Synology's new DSM 5.0 offers at a great price, and you could get the DS214se 2200 for a total of 4TB of available space if you don't want to install any HDDs yourself.
