Corsair AX1500i Review reported at 01:13 PM
category: Power Supplies     website: Guru3D
Article Quote:
The Corsair AX1500i is Bullet proof, it has nothing to lose, it is the Titanium factor the PSU makes this by far an incredible winner. Our tests show that the PSU positions itself where it needs to be. But lets round things up. Next to the efficiency it has good looks, is modular, is horrendously stable, comes with dark cabling and then we have to acknowledge it's drop dead silent as well. The one thing that could hold you back is the pricing as 450 USD is steep for any PSU really. The 7 year warranty that you receive with this product IMHO does make up for the price premium. The AX1500 stands out from others by a good margin.

Gigabyte G1.Sniper 5 Review reported at 01:03 PM
category: Socket 1150 Motherboards     website: HardOCP
Article Quote:
The Gigabyte G1.Sniper 5 is a great solution for the gamer looking to venture out on his own build for a gaming box. This motherboard does not have the hard core enthusiast overclocker in its sight. For those of us that need that, Gigabyte has other motherboards. This motherboard is packed with high end features that can be leveraged by those folks that want those. This is one of the few motherboards set up to allow a 4-Way GPU configuration.

Cooler Master Nepton 280L Review reported at 01:01 PM
category: CPU Coolers     website: MadShrimps
Article Quote:
The Cooler Master Nepton 240L is one powerful AIO cooler, sporting a great minimalistic design and is backed up by a 5 year warranty. While the 280L is one of the more expensive AIO kits available, the cooling performance capabilities are amongst the best out there, even though this all comes at the cost of extra generated noise, a few mouse clicks can seriously reduce the sound level while the heat dissipation performance remains top notch.

Roccat Ryos MK Glow Review reported at 01:00 PM
category: Keyboards     website: ocaholic
Article Quote:
Our global verdict about this keyboard is more than positive as ROCCAT managed to create a solid and high-quality product, almost free of flaws. We like the fact that this keyboard is heavy, with an attractive but not excessive design typical for gaming peripherals. The blue backlight is clear and precise, but at the highest level it may be a bit excessive.

OCZ Vertex 460 Review reported at 12:58 PM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: MadShrimps
Article Quote:
Despite the fact that OCZ Vertex 460 has lower operating frequencies, the difference in speed compared to the Vector 150 is small and we won’t be able to notice it in normal operating conditions.

X2 Eclipse IV Review reported at 12:23 PM
category: CPU Coolers     website: PureOverclock.com
Article Quote:
Overall, Spire did an exceptional job at constructing the Eclipse IV. We really appreciated the 12 heat pipes and unique orientation of the twin heatsinks. There are a couple things that need to be addressed with the cooler before we begin. While Spire was going into the correct direction of shortening fan cables, I found it more of a hassle and impossible to connect cables together after the fans were mounted. I think they could also come up with a different mounting procedure altogether as it was also difficult to hold the cooler in place while securing the center bracket.

MSI Z87I Gaming AC Review reported at 12:22 PM
category: Socket 1150 Motherboards     website: PureOverclock.com
Article Quote:
The $179.99AR sticker price may slow some down from making this investment until they check the prices of other mini ITX of this caliber. The Z87i Gaming AC is $30-50 cheaper than the Asus Maximus VI Impact and $20-$30 cheaper then the EVGA Stinger. Overclocking will be fairly close across all of these board and will largely be dependent on the cooling solution deployed. So unless you are a die hard fan of the other brands you might as well save a little money on the board so you can spend it on a better GPU or memory.

Kingston HyperX Predator DDR3-2800 2x4GB Kit Review reported at 12:20 PM
category: DDR3 Memory     website: Overclockers Club
Article Quote:
At $229, these Kingston HyperX Predator series modules are competitively priced by comparison to other 2800MHz modules. After looking at the performance out of the box, you might be better served with a 16GB 2133MHz kit for $80 less if you won't be doing any extreme overclocking. If extreme overclocking is where your heart lies, I am sure there is more left in these modules than the 3025MHz I was able to complete the benchmarks with. There are better options for the average user, but for those who test the limits of their hardware and want to spend the time tuning and using many of the presets available in today's UEFI BIOS implementations, this set is right in your wheel-house.

Raijintek Morpheus Review reported at 12:17 PM
category: Video Card Coolers     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
"The cooler currently retails for around 55 euros, and you could quickly reach 100 euros if you add the cost of fans and a fan controller to the tally, which is a lot to just keep your card quiet and cool. While the cost could be acceptable as a post-buy deal, it might be too expensive for users buying new card. 100 buck is the difference between a quiet custom GTX 780 Ti instead of a R9 290X, which would solve your problems just as well while providing better performance and taking up less space. Another option could be aftermarket watercooling which starts at roughly the same price and requires less space on the card, but you'll have to fit the watercooling radiator somewhere. Either way, the Raijintek Morpheus could definitely be for you if you are fed up with the noise of your high-end graphics card and finally want some peace of mind in the regard."

Phanteks Enthoo Pro Review reported at 12:12 PM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: Overclockers Club
Article Quote:
In the end, Phanteks has created a very well-rounded chassis for a perfect price point of $100. To me, the Enthoo Pro is cross between a Fractal Design ARC and a NZXT Source chassis. However, that's not to take away from the design team at Phanteks, as I think they did a great job of looking over the current market and seeing what works and running with it. There is nothing wrong with borrowing ideas if you can make it your own. This chassis is now my official go-to chassis for $100, and I can't wait to see what Phanteks brings to the table next.
