Kingston HyperX Fury White DDR3-1866 2x4GB Kit Review reported at 12:24 PM
category: DDR3 Memory     website: Overclockers Club
Article Quote:
If you choose not to overclock these HyperX Fury modules from Kingston, you still cannot go wrong for $79. Matching all the system component colors has become the norm and Kingston caters to this crowd by offering the HyperX Fury modules in four popular colors: red, black, blue, and white. At this point, there is no real reason not to get a set of these modules if you are in the market for a set of low voltage, low cost, good looking modules with a lifetime warranty.

Thermaltake Commander G41 Review reported at 12:21 PM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: Modders-Inc
Article Quote:
"The large gorgeous window, accompanied by it’s clean lines really make the Commander G41 a very aggressive looking case. However, looks aren’t everything as we all may know. With that said, the G41 does have it’s shortcomings. The tight fit of the graphics card initially caused somewhat worry that I wasn’t going to be able to install the hard drive cage again, once the GPU had finally been installed. With the front panel HD audio cable coming up just short of reaching the audio header, we were somewhat disappointed. It’s much easier to worry about hiding the excess cable than trying to make a short cable work."

category: Socket 1150 Motherboards     website: ThinkComputers
Article Quote:
It is really hard to believe that this is ASUS’s entry-level Z97 motherboard. Even looking back at the Z87-A, this board offers much more and you can see where ASUS made the improvements. If you are looking to get into the Z97 platform at an affordable price the Z97-A is the perfect choice.

Mionix Nash 20 Review reported at 12:07 PM
category: headsets     website: pcGameware.co.uk
Article Quote:
The bottom line here is that I really enjoyed the Mionix Nash 20 headset, there’s really only one thing in its way; and that’s the competition. At approximately £100 at the time of review, there’s a lot of good headsets to choose from. But there’s none that I can think of that are as well made, sound as good, and feature on-board volume control and mic mute functions. Therefore there’s no doubt that Mionix has a winner on its hand here, even if it is a little expensive…

Corsair Obsidian 250D & SilverStone Sugo SG05-450 Review reported at 12:05 PM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: X-bit labs
Article Quote:
The Corsair Obsidian 250D can take in more HDDs, has better protection against dust and is easier to assemble components in. However, its size seems to compromise the very idea of the mini-ITX form-factor. This computer case is broader than any full tower, yet you can’t put a monitor down on it as you can with low-profile desktop cases. In fact, the Obsidian 250D would take more desk space than a regular full-size product. Apart from this, it seems to have no downsides (except that we regret its not having a 200mm fan on its front panel by default). The SilverStone Sugo SG05-450-USB3 is just amazing with its ability to accommodate top-end components in a very small chassis. If compactness is as important for you as high performance, this model will have few alternatives, and the Obsidian 250D is not among them. The tradeoff for this compactness is the minimum of expansion opportunities, poor protection from dust and difficult assembly process.

Asus GeForce GTX 780 Ti DirectCU II OC Review reported at 12:04 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: X-bit labs
Article Quote:
The ASUS GeForce GTX 780 Ti DirectCU II OC is an interesting product, even though it can hardly claim to be the best single-GPU Nvidia-based solution available. We've mentioned its downsides in the course of this review including its rather noisy cooler, unimpressive factory overclocking and low frequency potential. Otherwise, it is a well-made product with low operating temperatures, an original PCB with enhanced power system, informative and reliable packaging, and certain customization options concerning its appearance. The card is less expensive than other original GeForce GTX 780 Ti versions.

AMD A10-7850K Review reported at 12:01 PM
category: AMD Socket FM2+ CPUs     website: X-bit labs
Article Quote:
For all that, AMD prices the A10-7850K very high, pitting it against junior Core i5 models which are actually much faster except when we use the integrated graphics. That’s why the A10-7850K seems only to be interesting for users of compact entry-level gaming configurations.

Avexir Blitz 1.1 Series Memory Review reported at 12:00 PM
category: DDR3 Memory     website: PureOverclock.com
Article Quote:
For Avexir to approach the overclocker’s memory marker with a blitzkrieg mentality, they created a very compelling product. Their previous series of memory were known for the ability to overclock well, but were also purchased by general system builders more for the aesthetics then speed. We believe they hit that double again with Blitz 1.1. The aesthetics of the Blitz 1.1 series is unparalleled by anything else available on the market today.

Asus Xonar U7 Review reported at 11:51 AM
category: Sound Cards     website: HardwareCanucks
Article Quote:
With the U7 ASUS has made wonderful strides in improving their USB-based Xonar offerings. What was once a source of derision in the audiophile community may not become an overnight success with it, but there’s proof here that USB and audio fidelity can walk hand in hand. More importantly, for the average consumer who needs a fast, pain-free, affordable external upgrade to their existing system’s soundcard abilities, the Xonar U7 is hard to beat. It certainly will never replace dedicated PCIe solutions, but for anyone using an SFF or mobile systems this is one of the best options available.

Logitech G502 Proteus Core Review reported at 11:47 AM
category: Mice     website: NikKTech
Article Quote:
"That being said the G502 may not be perfect (we've yet to find the perfect gaming mouse) but thanks to its speed, tracking accuracy, available buttons, weight system and surface tune feature it seems to be the jack of all trades and that's why it grabs our Platinum Award."

QNAP’s SilentNAS HS-210 is a great concept, allowing users to easy incorporate the system in to a home entertainment setup, however there are a number of key areas that need addressing in order to justify why the user would want it at the heart of their home theatre.
