MSI A88X-G45 Gaming Review reported at 02:02 PM
category: AMD Socket FM2+ Motherboards     website: PC Perspective
Article Quote:
I have no problem recommending this board to any potential buyer. It is inexpensive, it is feature packed, and it performs well at stock and overclocked speeds. I did not have the issue with this board that I encountered with the Gigabyte G1.Sniper in that the firmware that shipped with the board did not support the latest Kaveri APUs. I have also heard anecdotal evidence that this board has no problem with 16 GB DIMMS (I do not have any here for testing) as compared to the G1.Sniper which has problems recognizing these products. A reader of ours reported that he was unable to run that configuration with the Gigabyte board, but it ran perfectly with the MSI A88X-G45 Gaming motherboard.

Article Quote:
The N2560 late last year showed us that a budget system doesn’t have to offer sub-par performance or features and now a year on, we can still acknowledge that the N25xx series is still a strong player in the market, with an even more attractive price point for the first-time user.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti vs. GTX 750 Ti reported at 01:06 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: ocaholic
Article Quote:
At this point we usually compare the prices of the two cards we've put up against one another. These days the GTX 660 Ti sells for 215 Euro whereas the GTX 750 Ti costs about 110 Euro. But comparing prices of an entry level card is a rather tricky thing, since the two cards have different target audiences and most importantly they are from different generations. But still looking at this topic you can see that the GTX 750 Ti comes with an excellen price/performance ratio.

Gigabyte GA-Z97-D3H Review reported at 12:57 PM
category: Socket 1150 Motherboards     website: Modders-Inc
Article Quote:
"Overall, for $118 it is a very solid offering considering it manages to provide M.2 and SATA Express options for an entry level Z97 board while having an excellent overclocking-oriented UEFI albeit non-noob friendly with its lack of warning or voltage guidelines. It has all the basics covered and a few concessions made on the extras so that audio and network quality is more than above average for an entry level board. The Gigabyte Z97-D3H is a valiant motherboard feature-wise and performance-wise while at the same time modest in its approach, deserving the Modders-Inc Must Have award."

Thermaltake Tt eSPORTS Poseidon Z Kalih Blue Switch Edition Review reported at 12:45 PM
category: Keyboards     website: Techware Labs
Article Quote:
It was hard to find any flaws with the Poseidon Z; minor nuisances aside, it is everything I would want from a gaming keyboard. If you are looking for an elegant, high quality, full-sized gaming keyboard for a relatively low price, I highly recommend the Poseidon Z by Tt eSports. Although be aware that the Poseidon Z is not a feature heavy keyboard, it is about as standard as it gets.

TDK Trek Review reported at 11:37 AM
category: Digital Speakers     website: NikKTech
Article Quote:
"The lack of a microphone may disappoint some people since the A12 can't be used as a speakerphone but honestly now I’d never choose a wireless speaker based on that specific feature so i expect most people to feel the same. Bottom line the A12 TREK Micro is the ideal companion for people who simply have no room for a normal sized wireless speaker and since it performs extremely well for its size it gets our Golden Award."

Noctua NH-U12S CPU Air Cooler Review reported at 04:40 AM
category: CPU Coolers     website: Frosty Tech
Article Quote:
Noctua NH-U12S is a tower-type CPU air cooler with 158mm in height. The cooler is designed with 45nm fin depth to ensure that the cooler does not block any of the DIMM slots for installing memory kits- with or without tall heatspreaders. The height of the tower cooler is also designed in a way to ensure it fits in most cases.

category: CPU Coolers     website: Frosty Tech
Article Quote:
The Noctua NH-D14 seems to be a tough act to follow when it comes to air cooling, but the new NH-D15 looks to tower over its well-received predecessor... in every possible way! We compare the performance of these mammoth air coolers to see how much more Noctua can improve a successful product with the NH-D15. [NEOSEEKER] via [Frostytech.com]

Gigabyte Z97X-SOC FORCE Motherboard Review reported at 04:06 AM
category: Socket 1150 Motherboards     website: MadShrimps
Article Quote:
Gigabyte continues to release new products in their orange themed overclocking motherboard series. The first of the OC series was the immaculate X58 OC motherboard, a trimmed down on features board, however purely designed to provide the ultimate overclocking experience. Sadly the X58 OC board arrived just a tad too late on the market to become a major selling product. Nevertheless a trend was set: deliver affordable, yet customized for maximum tweaking potential motherboard series. Other brands had similar overclocking friendly boards yet retailing at far more elevated prices. The predecessor, the Z87X-OC was one of the most utilized overclocking boards during the last year according statistics expert Massman from HWBot.org. Gigabyte had to live up to its name and make the Z97X-SOC FORCE as good or preferably even better…
