Cooler Master V750 Semi-Modular Review reported at 03:12 PM
category: Power Supplies     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
"The VSM750 is a very good PSU for a mid-level system with two strong VGAs, and its Japanese caps ensure it is highly reliable under even incredibly tough conditions, like those in which I conduct all of my tests. Like everything in this world, it surely has some shortcomings, but most of you will probably only notice its steep price at which you could find many worthy alternatives. Cooler Master should, in my opinion, lower the price to around 100 bucks or slightly below if they want to meet the competition more effectively by boosting sales."

IK Multimedia iLoud Review reported at 03:06 PM
category: Digital Speakers     website: NikKTech
Article Quote:
"Bottom line if you're a musician who likes working while away from the studio or your home then the iLoud could help you out but for regular consumers a high end portable speaker like the TDK A33/A73 or the Jabra Solemate MAX should make a better choice. However we are here to determine whether or not the product in our hands delivers on the claims of the manufacturer and although the iLoud by IK Multimedia is not perfect it delivers and that's why it gets our Golden Award."

Thermaltake Tt eSPORTS SYBARIS Review reported at 03:01 PM
category: headsets     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
Tt eSPORTS have added another great headset to their range, so much so that it’s actually becoming difficult to pick which one of their headsets is their best. This is a great gaming headset without compromise, but the addition of mobile and wireless connectivity certainly gives the Sybaris an edge over the competition in this price range.

SilverStone Nightjar NJ520 Review reported at 02:59 PM
category: Power Supplies     website: HardOCP
Article Quote:
The SilverStone NJ520, like the previous fanless units we have seen from both Seasonic and SilverStone (the two companies responsible for this unit) is excellent. However, today, the NJ520 takes this to a bit of a new level as this is not just excellent but truly class leading. The NJ520 features a build quality that is better than most anything in this class, truly outstanding voltage regulation, excellent DC Output Quality, excellent efficiency, and truly outstanding Transient Load Test results. On top of all of that, as this unit is fanless, it was a truly silent option for users looking for such a thing. When we look at this unit relative to the competition we see that this unit is easily an upgrade over the ST50NF that SilverStone is replacing and better than the Kingwin Stryker 500W which was the previous class leader.

Raijintek Morpheus & ASUS Radeon R9 290X DirectCU II Review reported at 02:54 PM
category: Video Card Coolers     website: ocaholic
Article Quote:
Obviously, the DirectCU II cooler is already a well performing piece of hardware. Nevertheless Raijinteks Morpheus can beat the benchmarks set by ASUS's custom cooler. Considering the Morpheus equipped with two 120 x 120 x 25 millimeter fans blocks three expansion slots, and therefore it's substantially bigger than the DirectCU II cooler, we expected the Morpheus to perform better than the DirectCU II. Apart from that upgrading an ASUS DirectCU II card with an aftermarket cooler is definitely questionable, but what really makes sense is putting the Morpheus on a reference Radeon R9 290X. This will prevent the card from throttling and give you access to quite a bit more performance. Also overclocking headroom is apparently going to increase and on a reference R9 290X the 53 Euro, you'd have to pay for the Raijintek Morpheus, are money well spent.

Thermaltake LUXA2 GroovyW Review reported at 02:46 PM
category: Digital Speakers     website: ThinkComputers
Article Quote:
The combination of these two exceptional products together really makes for a solid setup for your mobile device. Right now the GroovyW is selling at my favorite online retailer for about $120, which is a good deal considering you are getting two products in one.

Best Gaming CPUs For The Money: August 2014 reported at 02:43 PM
category: Intel Socket 1150 CPUs     website: Tom's Hardware
Article Quote:
After that, the speed-ups are more subtle, while the premiums are far greater (particularly as you look to the $570 Core i7-4930K). Frankly, if value is an important consideration, there's little reason to spend $200 on a Core i5-4590 (or even more on a Core i7) unless you want to overclock it for a better experience in some of your other apps. The Core i5-4590 is a clear performance-per-dollar winner, demonstrating no weaknesses in any of the games we've tested.

AMD Radeon R9 270 vs. NVIDIA GTX 750 Ti reported at 02:36 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: ocaholic
Article Quote:
Comparing price differences with performance differences we see that with the Radeon R9 270 you pay 23 percent more in order to get 18 percent more performance. Other than that the AMD card supports CrossFire whereas the NVIDIA GTX 750 Ti is not capable of running SLI. Should you be looking for as much performance as possible from a cheap card, then the Radeon R9 270 is definitely a good choice. In the case of the GTX 750 Ti you get the most energy efficient, descrete graphics card available these days, which also offers very good bang for the buck.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX Titan Black GHz Edition Review reported at 02:16 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: X-bit labs
Article Quote:
"The Gigabyte GeForce GTX Titan Black GHz Edition is very expensive, which is its only downside, actually. If you find its price too steep, you may want to prefer an overclocked GeForce GTX 780 Ti because it would deliver similar performance."

MSI Z97 MPOWER Max AC Review reported at 02:10 PM
category: Socket 1150 Motherboards     website: X-bit labs
Article Quote:
So, what’s our problem with the MSI Z97 MPOWER? It just doesn’t support energy-efficient overclocking. MSI mainboards weren’t very overclocker-friendly in the past as they didn’t let you increase voltage in the offset mode. We could enable the loadline calibration feature to achieve the same results as with other brands’ mainboards, though, without disabling power-saving technologies. But now MSI mainboards seem to have lost the ability to overclock without increasing voltage. Most overclockers won’t notice this downside if they try to reach maximum rather than energy-efficient results and the MSI Z97 MPOWER won’t be any worse than other products in this case but we think that a really good mainboard must support all overclocking methods possible. And if you don’t intend to overclock at all, a simpler model would suffice.

Gigabyte GA-Z97X-GAMING 3 Review reported at 02:08 PM
category: Socket 1150 Motherboards     website: X-bit labs
Article Quote:
"Our general feeling about the Gigabyte GA-Z97X-Gaming 3 is that of disappointment. The new black-and-red color scheme of Gigabyte’s gaming mainboards is far from original as gaming products from other brands use the same colors. We don't like the new logo, too. These are our subjective impressions, though. As for its objective properties, it’s got a user-friendly design, standard accessories and good functionality. Although a junior model in its series, it is not limited functionally. It could overclock our CPU just like other mainboards and its performance is blameless."

Thermaltake Commander G41 Review reported at 02:07 PM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: Overclockers Club
Article Quote:
To wrap things up, the Commander G41 isn't a bad choice for the asking price. That is of course, if the numerous minor set backs does not effect your decision than this chassis has a good price point for what it offers.

ASUS R9 270 Direct CU II OC 2 GB Video Card Review reported at 01:44 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: MadShrimps
Article Quote:
The ASUS R9 270 Direct CU II VGA card shares the hardware with the more expensive 270X variant, but has lower stock clocks; from our experiences regarding overclocking with this card, we could say that it can easy surpass the R9 270X clocks or ever surpass it. Those who search the best bang for the buck VGA cards and won’t game on higher resolutions than Full-HD should put this card on their short list.

ECS Z97 Machine Motherboard Review reported at 01:41 PM
category: Socket 1150 Motherboards     website: MadShrimps
Article Quote:
The Z97 Machine motherboard from ECS takes part of their mainstream offerings and this particular model has been enhanced on the audio interface by including the ESS Sabre ES9010K2M DAC. A M.2 slot for SSD is also present and we can mount up to two video cards (AMD CrossFireX) for expanding the 3D performances even further.
