category: Socket 2011-V3 Motherboards     website: HardOCP
Article Quote:
ASUS has designed and built a tremendously good motherboard in the X99-Deluxe. It is packed with features that are very likely to be used if you are in the market for the fastest 8 core desktop processor in the world, the Core i7- 5960X.

Crucial MX100 256GB Review reported at 11:02 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
Oh wow! The Crucial MX100 is a truly awesome SSD. It not only is fast, but also extremely affordable, making it the cheapest high-end drive on the market. When I first heard about the MX100 I expected a crippled drive, designed to meet the lowest price points possible, but Crucial didn't cheap out. The SSD controller is the same we find on the Crucial M550 paired with a full set of 16 flash chips for maximum bandwidth.

Sapphire Radeon R9 285 Dual-X OC Review reported at 10:54 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: KitGuru
Article Quote:
Another very balanced card from Sapphire, but there are many good deals right now between £150 and £200 – it really is best shopping around for the best deal.

Plextor PX-256M6S Review reported at 10:48 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
Rounding off our look across the entire M6 product range that Plextor has to offer, the M6S has delivered the same hard drive that both the M6e and M6M did when we looked at them previously. Aside from the strong levels of performance right throughout the test range, the price point is one of the M6S’ strongest selling points, pitting it very close to Crucial’s Mx100 which took the SSD market by the scruff of the neck and gave it a good shake up earlier in the year.

Antec ISK-600 Review reported at 10:37 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: ocaholic
Article Quote:
The Antec ISK600 leaves us with mixed of feelings. The thing with this product is, that it's not really clear what the target audience is. You can certainly use it for an HTPC build but also there is the possibility to install discrete graphics cards and therefore assemble a miniITX gaming rig. But in both scenarions the ISK600 doesn't really shine bright. Last but not least having a look at prices we find this case listed on Geizhals for 53 Euro, which is ok for what you get.

Asus X99 Deluxe Review reported at 10:33 AM
category: Socket 2011-V3 Motherboards     website: PC Perspective
Article Quote:
ASUS has another feather in their cap with the X99-Deluxe motherboard. Not knowing what to expect from the combination of a new chipset, CPU, and memory technology, I went into the review with some trepidation. My concern quickly abated with an easy setup and lack of issues in running through the various testing scenarios. The X99-Deluxe is a well designed board that integrates features and ASUS-developed technologies from past board generations, making for a superior sythesis of form and function.

Synology DS115j Review reported at 10:23 AM
category: Storage Accessories     website: HardwareHeaven
Article Quote:
"Keeping in mind that the DS115j is the entry level model it is great to see that the OS used by Synology is the exact same on this model as their more expensive NAS devices. That is the key selling point of this model, and the rest of Synology’s range. Without doubt it is the best NAS operating system we have used, by far. It is intuitive and we can configure it exactly as we wish, from the users through the normal functions such as media streaming or back-ups and then onto more niche functions such as video surveillance from up to 5 cameras."

Intel Core i7 5960X / 5930K / 5820K Haswell-E review reported at 09:57 AM
category: Intel Socket 2011-V3 CPUs     website: Hardware.Info
Article Quote:
With Haswell-E, Intel brings a long awaited refresh to the high-end platform. The fact that you can now purchase an 8-core CPU for desktop might appear to be the biggest news item, but it is the cheaper Core i7 5820K that we find to be the most interesting. For the first time, even the entry level model of the high-end segment is a 6-core chip, which results in this 5820K being some 50% faster than it's predecessor and also quite a bit faster than the Core i7 4790K, which isn't that much cheaper. Click here for a comparison table of the Core i7 4970K, 4820K, and 5820K.

15 Intel X99 motherboards review reported at 09:50 AM
category: Socket 2011-V3 Motherboards     website: Hardware.Info
Article Quote:
To make a long story short; all three boards are a good choice and it will be a case of which one of the three is the best suitable for your needs, demands and experience. We think we have not tested the best possible choice yet, the MSI X99S MPower, this board is much more affordable but it sports all the overclocking features and extras that the Xpower has, and lacks the less useful extras like a WiFi module. The Mpower might be the ideal successor to the Gigabyte SOC Force Z97 as the most affordable, ideal overclocking board, but we can not confirm this until we have had our hands on it.

AMD FX-8370 & FX-8370E Processor Review reported at 09:10 AM
category: Socket AM3+ CPUs     website: PureOverclock.com
Article Quote:
If these new processors were aimed at getting people to upgrade from current FX-8000 series CPUs then I would say they missed the mark. Thankfully that was not AMD’s intent. Instead these are focused on those users currently sitting below the FX-8320 or are needing a higher end 95w part. At the end of the day, AMD created an upgrade path for more users and made it more competitive in that mid/high gamer market… because of the lower price. No, it hasn’t taken the crown, but AMD bought itself a little more time and another source of revenue as they continue working in secret on what many of us hope will be AMD’s saving grace. As for the 8370 and 8370E, AMD hits the price/performance marks to earn PureOverclocks Good Hardware Award.

XFX PRO650 Review reported at 09:09 AM
category: Power Supplies     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
The XFX PRO 650W XXX Edition power supply has some of the best performance that we’ve ever seen on a mid-range unit, sadly the overall product is let down by a noisy fan. If noise isn’t a big deal to you then this could definitely be worth a shot, the 5 year warranty sweetens the deal too.

ASUS Xonar Essence STX II 7.1 Sound Card reported at 04:20 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.

CORSAIR Graphite 380T Computer Case Review reported at 02:37 AM
category: Computer Cases/Enclosures     website: MadShrimps
Article Quote:
During Computex 2014, Corsair have shown their latest additions to their gaming enclosures. Besides the Carbide Air 250, a shrinked version of their popular 540 Air Cube case, Corsair jumped on the ultra portable mITX gaming enclosures band wagon with the new Graphite 380T, a futuristic design with rounded corners, featuring a big carrying handle and designed to support long graphics cards with ease. With the build-in 3 speed fan controller and room for up to five fans this little case could ultimately cool your mini gaming powerhouse. If this hasn't drawn your attention, maybe one of the flashy color schemes will. Time to open the package and show what this case has got in its margin...
