Enermax Liqtech 240 Review reported at 12:47 PM
category: CPU Coolers     website: HardOCP
Article Quote:
At the end of the day the Enermax Liqtech 240 is a very good cooler but there are better performing AIO coolers that also cost less. The Antec Kuhler 1250, the Coolermaster Glacer 240L, and single-fan SilverStone TD03 are some of those coolers. That said, the prices of these AIO coolers are all grouped very closely together and likely do not leave you with much reason to pick one or the other based on price alone. However there are some with mail-in-rebates currently that push those prices down quite a bit if you are willing to risk the MIR. The SilverStone TD03 is currently around $83 after MIR, which represents quite a savings.

Seasonic Platinum-1200 Review reported at 12:35 PM
category: Power Supplies     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
Seasonic's new flagship is among the best PSUs I have tested. It packs a ton of power, topnotch performance, and has a lot of connectors, including ten PCIe and two EPS connectors you can use at the same time. All of the above is combined with a hefty seven year warranty at a very justifiable price, which makes it incredibly competitive. I think this PSU is a very good investment for your money if you don't mind the noise its Sanyo Denki fan produces at, especially, high loads and under tough conditions. I am now looking forward to Seasonic's forays in producing and offering digital PSUs to the world!

Gioteck EX-05s Review reported at 12:02 PM
category: headsets     website: pcGameware.co.uk
Article Quote:
"The question for me remains, who is this headset for, who could I happily recommend this headset to, anyone? Well yes – If you need a headset, that is multi-platform and you cannot muster much more than £20, then the Gioteck EX-05s is for you. If you have more than £20 and you’re looking for a new headset, and thought that this might be the Gaming bargain of the year, then you need to look elsewhere."

Corsair Force LX 256GB Review reported at 11:57 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: MadShrimps
Article Quote:
Alright then, the tests are over and it is time to draw up the conclusions; not a long time ago we have reviewed an affordable SSD from KingFast, (F8) which was bringing to the table decent performances while keeping the sell price to very low levels. When Corsair has decided to release a product at the same price point, they have literally left that one in the dust meaning that for about the same price we are getting quality from a proven brand but also better read/write performances. The performance difference may not be too noticeable in regular usage environments, but it was visible in the benchmarks we ran.

Asus STRIX-GTX780-OC-6GD5 Review reported at 11:38 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: HardwareCanucks
Article Quote:
The GTX 780 STRIX isn’t cheap either. At $600 it will make potential buyers wonder whether the start/stop fan technology and an additional 3GB worth of memory is really worth $100 more than ASUS’ own GTX 780 DirectCU II OC. With that being said, the STRIX is priced perfectly in line with other 6GB-totting GTX 780s but that doesn’t necessarily make it a good value. There is however a certain peace of mind that comes with some extra future-proofing.

SSDNow V310 Review reported at 11:35 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: NikKTech
Article Quote:
"So with that in mind the SSDNow V310 960GB model may not be on the receiving end of any stellar performance awards but it does offer a very good price/capacity ratio and it's really not half as bad in terms of performance either (we're still talking about a current generation SSD) and that's why it gets our Golden Award."

GAMDIAS Hermes Ultimate Black Review reported at 11:25 AM
category: Keyboards     website: NikKTech
Article Quote:
"Now i do realize that some people may not like the price tag of the HERMES Ultimate Black much but let's not forget that for example the Hassium Pro by Deck costs roughly 15% less but doesn't offer the same amount of features and although for regular consumers and professionals I’d obviously recommend the Hassium Pro because of its looks and quality for gamers the GAMDIAS solution is a clear winner and that's why it gets our Golden Award."

Streacom NC1 Review reported at 11:07 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
"Out of the handful of NUC cases out there, the Streacom NC1 is certainly one of the most compact passive units out there, so you may think it does not cool as well as a larger unit, but it actually does cool incredibly well, delivering some of the lowest numbers we have seen yet. All that and its modular design and the NUC board's readily accessible front USB connector make it a great choice for those looking to free their retail NUC board of its noisy default chassis. It also comes at a higher price, and you will have shell out a few extra bucks for such things as the WiFi antenna or VESA mount. But the Stracom NC1's quality, modularity, and overall engineering make it an excellent NUC chassis even so."
