ASRock FaTal1ty Z97 Killer Series Motherboard Review reported at 01:40 PM
category: Socket 1150 Motherboards     website: PureOverclock.com
Article Quote:
Introduction Over the last few years we have seen ASRock gain movement in the motherboard arena. They have developed and revamped some rock solid motherboards at a very affordable price. In the past, we have seen many flagship motherboards from ASRock that have been top performers when it comes to overclocking and stability. Not only has ASRock performed well in the past, they have great aesthetic appeal too. Today, we have a chance to look at their newest variation from their already popular Fatal1ty series. This is the ASRock Fatal1ty Z97 Killer Series Motherboard. With Haswell’s refresh chipset in full swing, we have tested a number of great performing motherboards. But today, the ASRock Fatal1ty Z97 Killer Series has another advantage in this arena due to its aggressive pricing. So let’s move forward and put this motherboard to the test and see what it can do with our Intel 4770K Haswell Processor.       Just in case you are unfamiliar with ASRock, let’s take a look at who they are first: ASRock Inc. is established in 2002, specialized in the field of motherboards. ASRock strives to build up its own brand. With the 3C design concept, “Creativity, Consideration, Cost-effectiveness”, the company explores the limit of motherboards manufacturing while paying attention on the eco issue at the same time, developing products with the consideration of eco-friendly concept. ASRock has been growing fast and become world third largest motherboard brand with headquarter in Taipei, Taiwan and branches in Europe and the USA. The young and vibrant company targets from mainstream to enthusiast MB segments for different kinds of users, owning reputation around the world market with its reliability and proficiency.

be quiet Dark Rock 3 Review reported at 12:23 PM
category: CPU Coolers     website: Overclockers Club
Article Quote:
Be quiet! gives you a three-year warranty and great build quality to go along with the attractive dark nickel finish. Priced at around $75, it is a little toward the higher end of the spectrum. If you're thinking about an air cooling solution and you don't load your system to the limits, then the Dark Rock 3 should be able to handle the load. On the box it says, "NO COMPROMISE SILENCE AND PERFORMANCE" and I think the be quiet! Dark Rock 3 delivers.

Cooler Master CM Storm Sirus-C Review reported at 12:15 PM
category: headsets     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
"If you’re on the market for a dedicated gaming headset with a strong focus on providing great quality chat audio for team work, then the Sirus is certainly a strong contender for the money in your wallet. The multi format support is a welcome addition too, as it means that you shouldn’t need to invest in a second headset just to go enjoy a few games on the PlayStation 4."

Attitude One Almaz Review reported at 12:10 PM
category: headsets     website: ocaholic
Article Quote:
Overall, the Almaz is a decent product. Build quality and the materials are quite good as we expected from a product with this price. Other than that design is unique and sleek and the headset features a very good bundle. The soft cushions as well as the headband fit nicely and you will not experience any pressure points, except if you are wearing glasses or 3D goggles. Perception of audio is certainly a matter of subjectivity but in our opinion the sound is well balanced. We can say that the Almaz offers good sound quality, without over-pronounced bass. The earpads that surround the 40 millimeter drivers are comfortable if you do not wear glasses or 3D goggles while gaming. The detachable microphone, is made of flexible plastic and features a memory effect. Overall quality is good but, like other products, it is still too far away from the mouth.

Finally you get what you pay for and more with the Corsair 730t and the 760t.

GAMDIAS Hermes Review reported at 12:07 PM
category: Keyboards     website: KitGuru
Article Quote:
Good effort, but you cannot get away from the price. They have tried to innovate, which is always nice to see, but for a new brand to break into the market OVER the £100 price mark is gonna be tough. Any gamer who wants a Decepticon based on blue switches without the noise, will find this worth considering.

i-Rocks Rock K10 Review reported at 11:31 AM
category: Keyboards     website: pcGameware.co.uk
Article Quote:
The real icing on the cake for the K10 though is not the fact that it’s a well made, well engineered keyboard, it’s the price! At around £22 at the time of review it’s easily one of the best keyboards we have seen here at pcG. We don’t give these away easily, but the i-Rocks K10 deserves our top accolade for sure.

Gigabyte GA-Z97X-UD5H-BK Review reported at 11:18 AM
category: Socket 1150 Motherboards     website: HardOCP
Article Quote:
The GIGABYTE Z97X-UD5H is a great motherboard but it is not without its issues, but those issues are mostly easy to overlook. It has a couple of layout issues that are not wanted but not deal breakers either. Same can be said for the UEFI BIOS and GIGABYTE has smartly kept its very intuitive and easily navigated legacy BIOS a single keystroke away. Where the GIGABYTE Z97X-UD5H truly shows off is when you get past the minutia. The Z97X-UD5H was a hard worker in terms of performance and most importantly, stability. The onboard heatsink system works well and again puts this GIGABYTE motherboard into "the most stable" Z97 motherboards we have tested category.
