Noctua NH-D15 Review reported at 02:42 PM
category: CPU Coolers     website: ocaholic
Article Quote:
The Noctua NH-D15 is a powerful twin tower cooler that comes with a decent looking finish and a price of 88 Euro. Therefore, it is very expensive for an air cooler and with that amount of money you can actually get some AIO liquid coolers but those are not nearly good looking as the NH-D15. It offers great performance and, overall, this is definitely a product worth buying if you need a real nice high-end air cooler.

Thermaltake Tt eSPORTS Poseidon Z Kalih Blue Switch Edition Review reported at 01:13 PM
category: Keyboards     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
The Kailh switches in the Poseidon Z offer great performance, they’re a little loud compared to Cherry, but still give you a great typing action that can bring benefits to your work and gaming. The keyboard is a little short on features, but at this price range you would be crazy not to at least consider TteSports latest offering.

Biostar Hi-Fi Z97WE Review reported at 01:02 PM
category: Socket 1150 Motherboards     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
"Biostar’s Hi-Fi Z97WE is a good motherboard for anyone interested in building a HTPC or media based system that can take advantage of dual Gigabit LAN. On the whole this motherboard has solid performance and offers good value for money. However, in an increasingly competitive motherboard market this motherboard feels like it could do with some more finesse and sophistication to compete better with rival products."

AMD Radeon R9 290 vs. R9 270 CrossFire reported at 12:44 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: ocaholic
Article Quote:
So basically the CrossFire setup under load burns about 30 percent less power but is just about 3 percent slower. This is certainly an interesting bottom line in if you should already own a Radeon R9 270 card, adding another one to your system will make it quite quick for gaming. If you're considering to buy something completely new, then we would always opt for the single high-end card, since you get consitent performance and substantially higher energy efficiency in idle.

Seagate Desktop SSHD Review reported at 12:09 PM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: PC Perspective
Article Quote:
Seagate has pushed their hybrid tech much further with their line of Desktop SSHD's. These have good performance as an HDD, and cached data gets a nice performance boost, more closely matching the performance of an SSD. The original SSHD's were 2.5" units targeted at laptop upgrades, and for those applications, the 8GB cache was mostly sufficient. Seagate has unfortunately chosen to stick with the same cache size in these much larger desktop class capacities of up to 4TB. Such a small cache size becomes very limiting in heavier desktop usage, and we saw many scenarios where data frequently rolled out of the cache, limiting the time savings seen in actual use.
