Fractal Design Core 3500 Review reported at 01:02 PM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: Benchmark Reviews
Article Quote:
If you are looking for a Mid Tower case, we highly recommend you look into Fractal Design’s newest line-up. Maybe the 3500 is not for you, but I am pretty sure you might find the other options compelling. However, if you are not planning to build a crazy water-cooled build the Fractal Design Core 3500 is stylish, well constructed and offers a really good value.

Rosewill Capstone 1000-M Review reported at 01:00 PM
category: Power Supplies     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
"The performance of the previous generation Super Flower platform is admittedly not up to the levels of the contemporary competition, but those units also cost more, so you had better look elsewhere if performance is your primary prerogative. But look no further if you need a reliable PSU with a large warranty, good build quality, and a high performance-per-dollar ratio. This Capstone model won't let you down. Newegg's corresponding product page has a couple users mention problems with the fan where, to be more specific, the fan broke down after only several days of use. Probably due to a bad fan batch, I didn't encounter this problem with my sample, and I really pushed the fan hard."

Enermax Liqtech 120X Review reported at 12:53 PM
category: CPU Coolers     website: ThinkComputers
Article Quote:
If I were to have to complain about anything, and these two items are really pushing it, I would like to be able to change the LED color, and some software control wouldn’t hurt. But let’s be real, those two things are superfluous when the unit itself is performing well and looks great doing it all for a decent price.

Phanteks Enthoo Luxe Review reported at 12:51 PM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: KitGuru
Article Quote:
The Luxe cools superbly and does a fine job but the major attraction of the Luxe is the cosmetic polish delivered by Phanteks and in particular that classy and sophisticated LED lighting kit.

Philips 242G5DJEB Review reported at 12:50 PM
category: 20/22/24 INCH     website: pcGameware.co.uk
Article Quote:
"Overall the Philips monitor performed well, but in my opinion no better than my 24″ 60Hz monitor. I guess you could look at the 242G5DJEB as a very expensive 24″ monitor, with added bragging rights of that 144Hz label in the bottom left corner, but in all reality, IMHO you’d be better spending your money on a nice 29″ Ultrawide and improve your Gaming immersion , that is of course assuming you aren’t a competitive Gamer and therefore stuck at 1920×1080. And maybe, you just might benefit from that 144Hz Refresh Rate."

Synology DiskStation DS414j Review reported at 12:25 PM
category: Storage Accessories     website: MadShrimps
Article Quote:
While the chassis with the older design is quite solid, we would still prefer an updated version for the next models since those are easier to work with from the front, while the main PCB is better ventilated.

be quiet Dark Rock 3 Review reported at 12:17 PM
category: CPU Coolers     website: NikKTech
Article Quote:
Normally that would be a problem since the Dark Rock Pro 3 model features an extra 120mm fan and is larger (thus the extra price is well justified) but since it's not really that much better in terms of performance i see very little reason for the majority of consumers to choose that over the Dark Rock 3. Overall be quiet! has once again released a high quality performance cooler that's almost inaudible even under heavy load and those are more than enough for it to get our Golden Award.

Thermaltake Tt eSPORTS SYBARIS Review reported at 12:14 PM
category: headsets     website: NikKTech
Article Quote:
"In the end if you just need a wireless blue tooth headset to listen to music while on the go the SYBARIS is not for you, but if you're looking for an all-around solution then this could just be what you're looking for. As for us we really liked the SYBARIS and although we do feel that Tt eSPORTS did cut some corners along the way still they designed and manufactured a very good wired and wireless headset worthy of our Golden Award."

MSI Z97 Gaming 5 Review reported at 12:07 PM
category: Socket 1150 Motherboards     website: pcGameware.co.uk
Article Quote:
Well it looks like MSI have done it again; we were extremely impressed with last year’s Z87-G45 GAMING, but MSI have taken that Platinum award winning design and improved it. Therefore the MSI Z97 GAMING 5 goes straight to the top of the best Gaming motherboard chart.

Toshiba Nearline MG04ACA500A Review reported at 12:01 PM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: NikKTech
Article Quote:
"In conclusion Toshiba seems to be finally taking some serious steps in order to compete directly with their largest (and perhaps only) rival and since the MG04ACA500 5TB HDD just couldn't be better it gets our Platinum Award."

Netgear R7000 Router & EX6200 Extender Review reported at 11:53 AM
category: Internet Routers     website: HardwareCanucks
Article Quote:
To be honest the largest mitigating factor (and the one that did help soften our opinion of this router) is its price. Unlike the competition this 3x3 802.11AC totting Nighthawk is priced more in line with mainstream 'AC1200' routers. In the end this excellent price combined with decent to stellar performance metrics makes the Netgear R7000 worthy of further consideration, especially if 802.11N performance is not high on your priory list. It may not be as good as the hype surrounding it makes it out to be, but all things considered it still is a decent router.

Thermaltake Massive Notebook Coolers (V20, SP, TM) reported at 05:15 AM
category: Case Cooling Solutions     website: Frosty Tech
Article Quote:
"If you are on a tight budget, but you still need cooling, the V20 is your best bet. If you love your music (or in-game music) and can deal with something that is at least 300% better than your laptop speakers, while also keeping your laptop cooler than the V20, the SP will suit you. If you are a heavy gamer on your laptop and it is screaming all day long, the TM will reign it in. I never imagined that one of these coolers would ever perform so well. All three of these coolers stand the test of time under Thermaltake's banner and I would gladly recommend them to any and all.” [OVERCLOCKERSCLUB] via [Frostytech.com]

HIS R9 280 IceQ X2 OC 3GB GDDR5 Video Card Review reported at 04:46 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: MadShrimps
Article Quote:
With the R9 280 GPU (rebadged Radeon HD 7970), HIS have released a new card which features the proven 5-heatpipe two-slot cooling system; the product comes with a mild overclock but retains a very good overclocking potential, being able to reach and even surpass cards based on the 7970 GHz Edition. The card can handle most games at Full-HD resolutions, with or without filtering, while at 2560x1440 or 2560x1600 we may often need to adjust the detail levels.
