A-DATA XPG V3 DDR3-2933 2x4GB Kit Review reported at 02:42 PM
category: DDR3 Memory     website: Guru3D
Article Quote:
"The new V3 XPG series DIMMs are a niche product series aimed at a very specific group of people, the people that want the uber fastest stuff at the high-end of the spectrum. The kit as tested today is for the guys and gals that want high numbers on everything in their system. The kit remains easy to configure and offers nice quality. From an aesthetic point of view the new V3 XPG kits honestly are great looking DIMMs. The performance is great, but slower clocked memory with faster timings will get you the very same results at often a far better price. This is the reality of this Enhusiast class 2933 MHz kit, the timings are just too high to make a big enough difference to set it apart from the mainstream to high-end class DIMMs, but it certainly does run nice at an amazing 2933 MHz."

Silicon Power S70 Review reported at 02:37 PM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: NikKTech
Article Quote:
"That aside the Slim S70 240GB SSD by Silicon Power offers very good performance levels (especially for its age) but as expected not on par with what we see today from some of the highest end current generation models. The LSI/SandForce SF-2281 NAND flash controller may get to be called a legend in the storage industry because of the vast number of models wearing it but the truth of the matter is that it's not what it used to be roughly two years ago."

SilverStone SFX SX600-G Review reported at 02:32 PM
category: Power Supplies     website: HardOCP
Article Quote:
"The good news here for SilverStone is that while this unit is not a barnstormer, most users looking for a product like this are going to be savvy enough to be able to understand their exact needs and what compromises they are going to have to make for such a small form-factor. They also are going to be savvy enough to understand that this currently represents a simply massive amount of power in the small SFX form-factor. That power comes at a price though, as we look today we see this unit selling for $139.99 currently which is a hefty premium for a 600W unit and it also represents a significant premium over the ST45SF-G. Then again, if you want a fully modular 600W SFX power supply that can survive a beating as this unit has today, there really aren't two ways about it; this is your unit. all caveats included as with the last unit!"

Plextor PX-256M6Pro Review reported at 11:46 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: HardwareHeaven
Article Quote:
A well built drive which has some impressive performance mixed with interesting features. Like every other high end drive in using SATA 3 it is somewhat limited by the interface so we look forward to seeing what the M.2 edition (if there is one) does. A worthy winner of our recommended award.

Intel Haswell Core i7-4790K vs. i7-4770K Comparison reported at 11:31 AM
category: Intel Socket 1150 CPUs     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
At the end of the day, the choice is not between the Intel Core i7-4770K and the Intel Core i7-4790K, but, rather, between figuring out where the CPU's practical applications lie and how well these chips perform versus how much money is spent. In this case, the Intel Core i7-4790K is worthy of being your PC's king if you are new and are just now looking into the PC-parts market to put together your system. Otherwise, there is no reason to usurp the throne of an already existing Intel Core i7-4770K. Both make for great leaders.

ASUS Xonar Essence STX II 7.1 Sound Card reported at 02:10 AM
category: Sound Cards     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
ASUS marked their entry into the high-end sound card market with the Xonar Essence ST some years ago. Today, we will take a good look at the new STX II. The STX II brings new op-amps and a more precise clock generator to the table; the latter should lower jitter. The STX II also bolsters 7.1 outputs through a small break-out card.
