category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: Guru3d
Article Quote:
Overall we are impressed with the Carbide Air 240, it offers a lot of space for such a small form factor, it has great features for the smallest form factor it looks lovely and was designed ina very intelligent way, making this an easy to use and install chassis. There is a wide varyity of colors available for this chassis, this white edition might be a little too white ? Other then that, nice job Corsair.

Corsair Carbide Air 240 Review reported at 01:53 PM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: Hexus
Article Quote:
Corsair has answered the call for a smaller version of the popular Air 540. Retaining almost everything that was good about the original, the smaller and consequently better-looking Air 240 is a good option for a high-end Micro-ATX build.

"The Aerocool DS200 offers all the features you would expect to see in a case costing almost twice as much. It also offers good performance and was designed with consumers in mind. If you are in the market for a new case and what to choose from a few different colour options, the DS200 should be right up your alley."

Corsair HX750i Review reported at 12:44 PM
category: Power Supplies     website: Guru3d
Article Quote:
This PSU is at a quality and feature level different from the rest of the recommended gear and as such I feel strongly that our hard to get Top Pick award is well deserved. For a platinum certified PSU with Link and all other features this remains a fair price for a very impressive product, yeah that would be me last words for this review here. Nice job Corsair.

Five Z97 Express Motherboards, $160 To $220, Reviewed reported at 12:43 PM
category: Socket 1150 Motherboards     website: Tom's Hardware
Article Quote:
ASRock’s Z97-Extreme6 wins the value award, but Gigabyte’s Z97X-UD5H is still a strong contender for a mere $5 more. There are many things to like about the Z97X-UD5H, including its ability to support three-way CrossFire with PCIe 3.0 transfers. And if that’s still a contender, Asus’ high-end Wi-Fi card and lack of forced overclocking keep it in the running too!

MSI GeForce GTX 780 Ti Gaming 3G Review reported at 12:39 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: Hexus
Article Quote:
The PC gaming market doesn't stand still, and while the latest games consoles are competing at a paltry 1080p, we're already lamenting the fact that we've yet to see a single-GPU solution that truly excels at ultra-high-res 4K gaming. MSI's GTX 780 Ti Gaming 3G comes close, and it has the beating of Radeon R9 290X, but we may have to wait for a next-generation derivative for perfectly-smooth, high-quality 4K gaming from a single-chip card.

Cooler Master Storm QuickFire Rapid-i Review reported at 12:27 PM
category: Keyboards     website: pcGameware.co.uk
Article Quote:
Performance of the QuickFire Rapid-i and its associated Cherry MX Brown switches was impeccable, having a good (slightly noticeable) actuation point with a relatively low force, although not as low as Cherry MX Red. For Gaming I would prefer the Red but for typing (not something I do much of with my Gaming keyboard) it was excellent. Out of all of the Cherry MX switches tested my least favourite is the Blue (can’t stand the click) and my favourite is the Red for its responsiveness. But I have to admit (somewhat surprisingly) the Brown runs a close second.

ASUS Z97-Deluxe & Z97-A Review reported at 12:21 PM
category: Socket 1150 Motherboards     website: Overclockers Club
Article Quote:
At the conclusion of the testing, I found that all the associated technologies from ASUS just worked as intended. It's hard to go wrong with either the Z97-A or Z97-Deluxe NFC & WLC. However, if the NFC & WLC feature set is not on your go-to list, then the Z97-A is right up your alley.

Corsair Carbide Air 240 Review reported at 11:37 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
Corsair made quite the waves with the Carbide Air 540 and the trend certainly continues with the smaller Air 240. The chassis is the perfect example of how shrinking something down in size should be done. The Air 240 scores big with potent liquid-cooling support and excellent storage capabilities in regards to the PSU and graphics cards. You only need to watch the CPU cooler's height—something other cube cases do not restrict quite as much. This, however, seems to be the Air 240's only tangible drawback.

Corsair Carbide Air 240 Review reported at 11:32 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: PC Perspective
Article Quote:
"The truth is, the Carbide Air 240 is a great little case that you can pick up for under $100 that will accommodate just about any combination of hardware you can think of. The primary restriction is in the motherboard: it needs to be a Micro-ATX or Mini-ITX design. Considering you can get Z97 as well as X79/X99 motherboards in mATX already, that means your options for filling the Air 240 are better than you might believe considering its small size."

Roccat Isku FX Review reported at 11:23 AM
category: Keyboards     website: Benchmark Reviews
Article Quote:
The ISKU FX is a good all around product. I think that it’s biggest flaw stems from ROCCAT trying to cram to many features into one product, which led to the design of the macros along with cutting corners in construction and lightning. If you want a gaming keyboard on a budget, buy the ISKU FX. If you want a higher quality board with easy macros access, I’d recommend looking into the Corsair Vengeance K70 or GAMDIAS HERMES.

Our advice is to grab whichever model is the cheapest while favoring the 850 Pro if you want the best performance, or if the drives are matched in pricing.

Thermalright Archon IB-E X2 Review reported at 11:13 AM
category: CPU Coolers     website: NikKTech
Article Quote:
"Overall the new Archon IB-E X2 CPU cooler may still not compete with some highest end dual heatsink models but since it's just a shorter version of the Archon SB-E X2 model with slightly better performance and roughly the same noise levels we can only say the best about it."
