MSI Z97 Gaming 5 @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, May 21 2014 | 2:29P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Typically, Intel keeps their chipset launches timed with new CPUs but todays (official) launch of the Z997 chipset does not come with shiny new silicon from Intel. There are rumors of launch days for a Haswell refresh but as of now, there isnt anything official. Even without new CPUs we can still take a look at the latest in motherboards. To start things off, today I will be taking a look at MSIs Z97 Gaming 5. With their new naming scheme we can tell right away that this is a gaming motherboard (of course) and the 5 is their entry level full ATX board with a 7 and a 9 that will round out the line. Im excited to see what has changed and what remained the same!"

Seagate Enterprise Class 6TB Hard Drive Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Wed, May 21 2014 | 1:06P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Recently Seagate began really pushing the high end of the storage market again with the launch of their Enterprise Capacity 3.5 v4 range. With models at 5TB and 6TB we can create some pretty spectacular storage systems but they are more than just that. Seagate have also tuned them for high performance... so massive capacity and speeds quoted over 200MB/s read/write from a single mechanical drive? Today we have the 6TB version attached to our system, let`s see if it can live up to the claims."

Poweradd Pilot 2GS 10000mAh Dual USB Portable Battery Pack Review @ TestFreaks
     Wed, May 21 2014 | 12:12P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It seems portable batteries are very popular lately as Ive got another one for review but this one is from a different company than all the others, the company is called Poweradd and the battery is called the Pilot 2GS and its a 10000mAh capacity battery with dual USB ports. The one blatantly different thing Ive noticed about these batteries is that even though theyre getting larger in capacity, theyre getting smaller in size and that can only be a good thing of course. The Pilot 2GS has dual UBS ports as I mentioned, one is 1amp and the other 2.1amps so you can charge virtually any USB enabled device, tablets, phones, mp3 players, pretty much anything and that makes it a very valuable thing to have when you need some extra power on the go.

Posted by: STAFF
A few years back GIGABYTE unveiled the X58A-OC, this was the first board in the ?OC? series of motherboards. The X58A-OC was a very stripped down board that had only the bare essentials to it.

ASUS Sabertooth Z97 Mark 1 Motherboard Review
