The LUXA2 GroovyW is a speaker that does all of the little things really well, but falls short in its main job: playing high quality music.

Gigabyte GA-Z97N-Gaming 5 Review reported at 12:14 PM
category: Socket 1150 Motherboards     website: HardwareHeaven
Article Quote:
In the case of the Z97N-Gaming 5 Gigabyte have done a great job of keeping all of the key features, from the two mentioned above to the latest CPUs and high end GPUs. Some decent audio hardware also makes an appearance, as does Killer NIC and we have plenty of ports (and internal headers) to expand our connectivity. Really our only little niggle, for a board of this type, is that we could do with maybe one extra fan header. That said, we do appreciate the 5th SATA header, right at the edge of the board which could have been a location of this additional fan.

Toshiba HG6 Review reported at 12:09 PM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
Toshiba's new HG6 SSD claims the performance crown in our brand-new real-life SSD test suite. The drive is based on Toshiba's own controller paired with their own flash chips and seems to be well-optimized for consumer workloads - Toshiba's experience in the enterprise sector probably provided the foundation for that. However, performance differences in the high-end consumer segment are quite slim, which becomes apparent as all 14 drives in our test group are less than 10% apart in real-life performance. It's also interesting to see that according to our synthetic tests, the Toshiba HG6 is just an above average drive while real-life testing reveals its true potential as it is the best-in-class SSD.

Cooler Master Nepton 280L Review reported at 12:05 PM
category: CPU Coolers     website: HardwareHeaven
Article Quote:
Performance too is very good. In fact the Nepton 280L has the best performance (out of the box) of any liquid cooler we have tested to date. The noise levels are decent for a cooler of this performance level and the pump is near silent which is great.

Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury Review reported at 12:03 PM
category: Mice     website: pcGameware.co.uk
Article Quote:
So following in the steps of the G502 Proteus Core and the G602 Wireless Gaming Mouse, Logitech are once again onto a winner. I honestly couldn’t tell you that the G402 is really the fastest mouse in the world, but I can tell you it is a bloody good Gaming mouse, in fact one of the best I’ve ever used (has to be to improve my Game!). With an SRRP of £49.99, the G402 Hyperion Fury offers very good value for money and offers you the speed and precision many Gaming mice simply can’t even come close to.

"What really pushes the XLR8 to the forefront is its lifetime warranty which gives gamers peace of mind provided they intend to keep their new purchase for any length of time. With all of these factors in their favor, we have to applaud PNY’s efforts to get themselves some well-deserved recognition."

AMD A10-7800 & A6-7400K Review reported at 11:43 AM
category: AMD Socket FM2+ CPUs     website: PC Perspective
Article Quote:
This is a much needed release for AMD. They have addressed the massive gap in their product lineup in the sub-$155 range with newer, and HSA enabled, Kaveri parts. These products provide some real value for the money and can be a very solid product as just a standalone APU or when combined with a higher end GPU. As mentioned in my post from several weeks ago, a fully enabled AMD APU can provide some very significant advantages over the competition when run with an AMD or NVIDIA standalone GPU. The work done on these chips to address power efficiency while maintaining comparable performance should reap benefits for AMD down the line. Now we just wait until these are available as well as what AMD plans to do with the Kaveri family in the future. We only wish that we had a higher end variant that could help address the performance needs of the midrange and top end enthusiasts.

AMD A10-7800 Kaveri reported at 04:40 AM
category: AMD Socket FM2+ CPUs     website: LanOC
Article Quote:
Earlier this year AMD introduced their Kaveri APUs and I had the chance to take a look at the A10-7850K. While I wouldn’t consider is an enthusiast part, I came out of our testing seriously impressed with the improvements AMD has made on the GPU side of things. I thought the new Kaveri APUs would be perfect for HTPCs as well as budget gaming rigs. Well today AMD is officially announcing a few new APUs that fill in a few gaps in that product line. The new APUs are the A10-7800, A8-7600, and the A6-7400K. While the architecture is the same, the new models do have a few interesting standouts. For one the A6-7400K is unlocked and has a low price to compete with the Intel G3258 Anniversary Edition. The other one that caught my eye was the A10-7800. It shares similar stats with the A10-7850K but with nearly half the power usage! Today I’m going to take a look at the A10-7800 to see if it is as exciting as the numbers imply.
