NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan Z Review reported at 06:37 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: PC Perspective
Article Quote:
There are several reasons to bash on the Titan Z including performance and price, but the design of the card is still impressive. The looks and style, in addition to the sound levels and power consumption, do give the card some strengths. It just isn't enough to recommend over the Radeon R9 295X2.

Gigabyte GA-Z97X-SOC Force Review reported at 06:13 PM
category: Socket 1150 Motherboards     website: ocaholic
Article Quote:
With the Z97X-SOC Force, Gigabyte has a worthy successor for the Z87X-OC in its portfolio. Like its predecessor this board comes with lots of features as well as an attractive price point. For 181 Euro you get everything you need for overclocking and also gamers, enthusiasts as well as modders will be happy with this product. It is only the M.2 slot we are missing with this motherboard.

Article Quote:
The Genius Imperator Pro is well thought out set of hardware and UI software. A positive experience using this unit i can report that features, functions, ease of use and learning, well done User Interface and cost adds up to a recommendation from this reviewer. Nothing major sticks out as a negative.

Crucial M550 Review reported at 05:47 PM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: NikKTech
Article Quote:
Bottom line Crucial did deliver on their promise for a faster SSD compared to the M500 and although still far from the fastest one around it does offer a very good price/performance ratio and that's why it gets our Golden Award.

category: Power Supplies     website: KitGuru
Article Quote:
Another top grade, high end power supply from Seasonic. Considering the feature list and immense power output, it is reasonably well priced.

Gigabyte Radeon R7 250X OC Review reported at 05:39 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: MadShrimps
Article Quote:
"Considering the selected price point of the Gigabyte R7 250X OC video card, which is in fact a renamed Radeon HD 7770, we should not expect stellar performances at Full HD resolutions and more, even if we have plenty of connectivity options for this card. When we have tested the R7 250 from HIS, we have seen that it was insanely overclockable but we have only succeeded to surpass a regular Radeon 7750. With the R7 250X we will see that the card can deliver much more performance right from the start, so we were able to see the card performing quite well at 1680x1050 resolutions, some games even getting over 60 frames per second. There were quite a few releases which could not deliver this much, so for those we have two options: we will either skip some of the detail levels or try downgrading the resolution a bit."

Radeon R7 250X iCooler 1GB Review reported at 05:35 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: MadShrimps
Article Quote:
"As an entry level card, the HIS 250X is priced at about 75 Euros, which is about 6 euros less than the Gigabyte card. What card should you choose then? Well, we are on the fence on this one since both are great cards and the Gigabyte model also supplies a PCI-Express to Molex power adapter. In conclusion, both are a good choice for light gaming and for fitting in compact HTPC systems."

Mionix Naos 7000 Review reported at 05:25 PM
category: Mice     website: KitGuru
Article Quote:
Even though this is a great mouse, I would still recommend the AVIOR over it because you can use whatever grip type you want. And its scroll wheel is quieter.

Kingston HyperX Cloud Review reported at 05:22 PM
category: headsets     website: NikKTech
Article Quote:
Overall Kingston has launched a product which should appeal to the masses largely thanks to its build and audio quality and since it did to us we're giving it our Platinum Award.

XFX XTR 650W Review reported at 05:19 PM
category: Power Supplies     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
The XTR-650 is a very good choice for anyone looking to spend around 100 bucks on a reliable PSU with great performance, a PSU that will keep on giving for many years to come, which its five year warranty only substantiates.

Xigmatek Midgard III Review reported at 05:08 PM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: Overclockers Club
Article Quote:
To conclude, I think the Xigmatek Midgard is something I have a hard time recommending, unless the Qi charging station is a must have. There are just far to many established and well reviewed chassis within each price range to make this one stand out. Although the price is still yet to be announced, I can name other chassis, from the Raidmax Horus ($50) to the Phanteks Enthoo Pro ($100), which are much better at those respected price points.

NZXT Kraken X40 Review reported at 05:03 PM
category: CPU Coolers     website: Frosty Tech
Article Quote:
Still, compared to the other all-in-one liquid coolers based on the popular Asetek infrastructure, the NZXT Kraken X40 liquid cooling solution performs favorably, but a little on the loud side at stock fan speed.

be quiet Shadow Rock Slim Review reported at 05:01 PM
category: CPU Coolers     website: Frosty Tech
Article Quote:
Bottom line, BeQuiet's Shadow Rock Slim is a good heatsink at stock fan speeds, particularly on sub-150W TDP processors. At low fan speeds around 800RPM the fan just isn't able to deliver sufficient airflow to keep temperatures in check. On the whole, the Shadow Rock Slim offers very quiet operation across the board, but it's not entirely suited to LGA2011 chips running at a TDP well above 160W due to overclocking. In those situations, the Dark Rock Pro 3 is the better heatsink if you're looking to stick with coolers from the BeQuiet stables.

be quiet Shadow Rock 2 Review reported at 04:59 PM
category: CPU Coolers     website: Frosty Tech
Article Quote:
Ultimately, a slow fan will deliver the quietest performance, so long as you're okay with a trade off in higher temperatures. With the Shadow Rock 2's fan slowed down to 800RPM, airflow is just too low to keep temperatures in line. At stock fan speeds the Shadow Rock 2 performs to an average level on all three synthetic thermal test platforms, not the best thermal results or lowest noise output, but not bad on either front either.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 740 On Linux reported at 08:28 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: Phoronix
Article Quote:
While the NVIDIA GeForce GT 740 graphics card will run just fine with the proprietary NVIDIA graphics card, I'm less than impressed by this ~$90 USD graphics card. The performance of the GeForce GT 740 is roughly that of the GeForce GTX 650, but its launch is coming months after NVIDIA introduced Maxwell with the GTX 750 and GTX 750 Ti graphics cards. The GeForce GTX 750 can be found for ~$110 and offers measurably better performance, is based upon NVIDIA's latest-generation architecture, and the performance-per-Watt is a big step forward over Kepler. The GTX 750 can be found for around $110+ with "super clocked" models from EVGA just going for around $120 while the GTX 750 Ti model is more expensive at around $150.

Intel Core i7-4790K Review reported at 08:07 AM
category: Intel Socket 1150 CPUs     website: PC Perspective
Article Quote:
"If you were planning a new build in line with the Z97 platform shift, the Core i7-4790K is the perfect processor to pair with it. You'll get one of the fastest consumer processors you can buy and you won't have to shell out $1000 for it. Overclocking, as always, will vary from user to user and if that is the crucial factor in your purchase, you'll likely want to wait and see what lots of other users have to say first. For me though, the Core i7-4790K fits perfectly in a high end gaming rig without tweaking a thing."
