ASRock Fatal1ty H97 Performance Review reported at 12:45 PM
category: Socket 1150 Motherboards     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
"Like with the ASRock H87 and B85 Fatal1ty motherboards from the last generation this ASRock Fatal1ty H97 Performance motherboard offers excellent value for money. ASRock’s decision to offer a gaming motherboard on a lower end chipset makes sense and has been executed well. There are areas for improvement but at this price segment you cannot complain too much."

MSI Z97 Gaming 7 Review reported at 12:37 PM
category: Socket 1150 Motherboards     website: HardOCP
Article Quote:
While the Z97 Gaming 7 is not the perfect motherboard, it does represent a solid value for the enthusiast looking to build a good system, but we would suggest keeping an eye on your case’s thermals and airflow, which you should be doing anyway. That would go a long way to making up for the budget oriented heatsinks found on the motherboard.

ASRock Fatal1ty Z97X Killer Review reported at 12:33 PM
category: Socket 1150 Motherboards     website: pcGameware.co.uk
Article Quote:
So it seems that ASRock have created the perfect Gaming motherboard!? Well, yes, I think they have! All of what most Gamers would want is here, a truly great looking board with easy to activate overclocking features. Killer LAN, Purity 2 Sound (via Realtek ALC1150), coupled with CrossFire and SLI support. Add to this its great stability, the replaceable BIOS chips (should things go wrong), great software features like the Key-Master and Fatal1ty Mouse Port applications. And to top it all off a very reasonable price, especially when you consider how new this board and its chipset is…

NEC Interchannel MultiSync PA272W Review reported at 12:29 PM
category: 20/22/24 INCH     website: Tom's Hardware
Article Quote:
"Performance-wise, the PA272W comes out on top or close in every metric. Color, grayscale, and gamma accuracy are beyond reproach. Contrast, while never stellar on any LCD monitor, is better than most of the screens we’ve tested. Response time and input lag are on par with other IPS monitors (even if that's obviously not the intent)."

Intel Pentium G3258 Review reported at 12:19 PM
category: Intel Socket 1150 CPUs     website: Tom's Hardware
Article Quote:
For as long as Intel insisted on making enthusiasts pay a premium for K-series Core i5 and i7s, AMD had the market cornered on budget-friendly overclocking. The Pentium G3258 is a watershed moment for the company, though. It’s giving power users access to a powerful and efficient architecture, along with the freedom to tweak it, all at an inclusionary price point. The Pentium G3258 typifies what our Tom’s Hardware Smart Buy award is all about.

Patriot Viper 3 Low Profile DDR3-1600 2x4GB Kit Review reported at 12:14 PM
category: DDR3 Memory     website: MadShrimps
Article Quote:
"The Patriot Viper 3 kits are available in dual or quad channel kits, from 8GB to 32GB while offering speeds from 1600MHz up to 2133MHz. These are rated at 1.5V and have preloaded XMP 1.3 profiles for easy configuration and compatibility. Low Profile heat spreaders are a big deal nowadays if we are not using an all-in-one water cooling system, since many high-performance CPU coolers have their heatsinks quite large and will get in the way when trying to mount the modules into the respective slots."

Logitech Ultimate Ears BOOM Review reported at 11:57 AM
category: Digital Speakers     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
"UE's developmental pace when it comes to the BOOM's software and firmware make it as brilliant of a purchase today as it was nearly a year ago when the model launched. The app is still really simple and stable, but several neat features have been added to make this speaker faster and easier to use with the app. The nuisances we reported on with multiple speaker setups are now completely gone because of app and firmware updates, and while the hardware has not changed much, you now get a little dirt cover for the jacks on the bottom of the BOOM. While a welcome addition, a fully sized protective cover of some sort would have been better still."

Asus Z97-Deluxe (NFC & WLC) Review reported at 11:49 AM
category: Socket 1150 Motherboards     website: HardwareCanucks
Article Quote:
An excellent layout, two SATA Express connectors, a great BIOS, drool-worthy software overclocking capabilities, impressive secondary connectivity options and more, the Z97 Deluxe’s list of achievements is nothing short of incredible. If you are looking for a motherboard that offers everything you could possibly want and features you may never want do without again, ASUS’ current flagship should top the list.

AMD A10-7850K Review reported at 05:20 AM
category: AMD Socket FM2+ CPUs     website: Bjorn3D
Article Quote:
On the CPU front, Kaveri did not make a giant leap that we have hoped. It is a bit of a mixed bag where the reduction in the clock speed hurts its performance in apps such as Cinebench that demands on higher clockspeed. On the other hand, for the software that is optimized for, we see about 10% improvements in the performance. The single-thread performance seems to have suffered the most on Kaveri and this is an area where AMD definitely needs improvement. Multi-thread performance in general is on par with Richland/Trinity and often exceeds its predecessor. While we do not expect Kavreri to actually out-perform Intel, we at least hope it would be able to improve a little more especially the single thread performance as that has always been a sore spot on the AMD APU.
