Pentium G3258 Anniversary Edition Review reported at 02:08 PM
category: Intel Socket 1150 CPUs     website: EuroGamer
Article Quote:
Manage your expectations, choose your kit well, accept some compromises and this processor will serve you well even on the most demanding titles. Just be prepared to accept that the G3258 is based around a processing concept that many game-makers have left behind, and that if you're looking to run the latest and greatest titles at high frame-rates, there's the possibility that you could find yourself upgrading sooner rather than later.

ASUS R7 265 DC2 & GTX 750 Ti DC2 OC 1080p Review reported at 02:07 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: HardOCP
Article Quote:
The video card we would go with would be one based around the AMD R7 265. This video card has a wider 256-bit memory bus, and more ROPs, which is going to help push 1080p gaming in newer games out this year and next. We see this with Watch Dogs, which is heavy on texture performance and the ASUS R7 265 video card is much faster than the R7 260X and GTX 750 Ti in this game. If this game indicates the future of gameplay performance, than the R7 265 is going to be the most advantageous for those next generation games. Even though the R7 260X and GTX 750 Ti are now in the low $100's due to rebates, we'd save up the extra cash for the $150 AMD R7 265 GPU based video card, it's going to serve you better in the long-run for 1080p gaming.

At the end of the day this still is a great cooler if you can get past the more difficult installation. I would have liked to see a little better performance too since this is such a large cooler.

AMD Athlon 5350 and Gigabyte GA-AM1M-S2H Review Read more at http://benchmarkreviews.com/16813/amd-athlon-5350-and-gigabyte-ga-am1m-s2h-review/#oqkmaYVdXowJKxWH.99 reported at 09:23 AM
category: AMD Socket AM1 CPUs     website: Benchmark Reviews
Article Quote:
The Athlon 5350 and AM1 platform perform very well considering the market position they occupy. While the Athlon 5350 sat at the bottom of all except the gaming test, the competition wasn’t exactly fair. I used what I had on hand, but I had to compare the extremely entry level AM1 platform to the much more mainstream i3-3220 and i3-4340. The fact that the Athlon 5350 often matched and sometimes beat the performance of the i3-3220 is a testament to it’s power. For what it is, the Athlon 5350 and AM1 platform are great performers.

category: SATA Hard Drives     website: NikKTech

Still performance is quite good (obviously a step up from the previous V55) and the price is almost right so we strongly recommend taking a look if you’re out in the market for your first or a new SSD.

Thermaltake Toughpower Grand Review reported at 08:49 AM
category: Power Supplies     website: NikKTech
Article Quote:
With most manufacturers focused in releasing 80 Plus Platinum and Titanium certified PSUs i was quite pleased to see that Thermaltake is still catering to the needs of most consumers by releasing lower-cost yet high-performance Gold certified models like the TPG-0750M. Performance is really not the only thing that reveals just how special the TPG-0750M is since it really takes just a second to notice the 100% modular design a feature which is very rare even amongst the highest-end models in the market currently. True 100% modular models have shown slightly inferior numbers on the 3.3v/5v rails compared to the same models but with the main power cables hardwired into the chassis but the TPG-0750M produced solid results even while our test rig managed to draw 803W from it.

Asus GRYPHON Z97 Review reported at 08:47 AM
category: Socket 1150 Motherboards     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
"Like previous TUF series motherboards that have come before it the Z97 GRYPHON continues to push the boundaries of reliability, stability and quality within the cool looks of the military class design philosophy. In terms of the ability to monitor and control your system at a hardware and software level the Z97 GRYPHON from ASUS is matched by no-one. Best of all the 5 year warranty gives you the piece of mind that this isn’t just a motherboard, but a long term investment.”"

category: CPU Coolers     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
be quiet! have a superb reputation for flawless build quality, silent performance and great overall performance. The Shadow Rock Slim may be one of their “cheaper” coolers, but it has still got what it takes to uphold the be quiet! reputation for premium products. If you’re on the market for a budget friendly cooler with class leading performance, you’ll struggle to find anything better for the same money.
