NZXT Kraken X40 & X60 CPU Coolers Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Sun, Feb 10 2013 | 11:23P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NZXT`s Kraken X40 and X60 all in one water coolers are meant to go head to head against some of the best offered by Corsair, Thermaltake and Cooler Master. In order to accomplish this, NZXT has avoided using typical 120mm and 240mm form factors and instead upsized their new X40 and X60 to 140mm and 280mm respectively."

NZXT Phantom 820 Tower Computer Case @ Benchmark Reviews
     Sun, Feb 10 2013 | 8:22P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A great case can last an enthusiast many builds. This means that case designers need to create cases that can handle many different configurations, with many different requirements. A multi-GPU system has different requirements than a single GPU system, which in turn has different requirements than professional workstation. While NZXT attempts to cater to all of these parties, designing a case involves making compromises between the three areas of quality, features, and cost. Therefore, the question Benchmark Reviews will attempt to answer is what compromises did NZXT make in the creation of the NZXT Phantom 820..."

Games We Want To Play 2013 @ Techreaction.net
     Sun, Feb 10 2013 | 7:55P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As we say goodbye to 2012, we welcome 2013, and the games it will bring with it. Some games we have had our eyes on more then others, and today wed like to share with you just a few of the games we are hoping to get our greedy little hands on once they are released. Now our games wish list is pretty long so we decided to do something a bit different then what other game sites are doing with their anticipated games of 2013 lists. Instead of just naming every single game we want to play scheduled for release this year, we have opted to do a quarterly report of the games of 2013 we are most looking forward to. We believe this kind of format is favorable in a couple of ways: First it makes the list brief allowing you to only take ten minutes or so to go over it, and be on your way. I mean honestly do you really want to read through what could be 20 pages plus of games we want to play in 2013? Secondly since we are opting for a quarterly listing of games, this format will allow us to adjust our overall list to be a bit more up to date during the course of the year as things like release dates, change in art direction, combat systems, addition / subtraction of multiplayer component, etc. have a tendency to change. Thirdlyah hell you pretty much get the point. We want a list that you can look real quick at, get some up to date info on, comment if you like, and go about your business. Simple right? We hope so : ) * * * *"

Kingston HyperX Beast DDR3-2133 64GB Memory Kit Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Sun, Feb 10 2013 | 1:43P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Not that long ago Kingston announced a new entry into their HyperX line, Beast. The Beast memory kits are designed for users who want the largest capacity memory available, but still want that performance memory speed and quality. HyperX Beast is part of the Predator line so it is made for both power users and enthusiasts. As I said these kits are for people who want large capacities so the lowest capacity kit available is 16GB. Kingston was nice enough to send us the big boy of the line which is the KHX21C11T3FK8/64X kit. This a 64GB (8x8GB) kit running at 2133MHz with timings of 11-12-11 at 1.65v. So lets get started!"

Logitech G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, Feb 10 2013 | 12:50P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We may never know why Logitech took so long to deliver a mechanical keyboard to the market, but the G710+ is most certainly welcome. Logitech doesn`t include the more gimmicky things found on its other G-series keyboard such as the small LCD screen. The G710+ has only functional and useful features while maintaining a unique appearance..."

Logitech Joint Giveaway
     Sun, Feb 10 2013 | 11:19A | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I`ve always believed two things, first that anything that people can get for free is always good (even if someone gets something for free they don`t like they can always give it to someone that does) and secondly that giving back to people who support your work is the right thing to do and who knows you may put a smile on someones face in the process and that`s really priceless. So even though it`s been just a couple of hours since we closed the doors to our Antec joint contest we are launching yet another one, this time with our friends from Logitech who were kind enough to make 4 prizes available rather than the standard 3 we ask for. So this time up for grabs we have one Z523 2.1 speaker system and three T650 Wireless Rechargeable Touchpads. As always to participate in the giveaway you need to take 4 very small and short steps:"

Ubuntu 13.04 Will Improve Gaming On Open-Source GPU Drivers
     Sun, Feb 10 2013 | 9:22A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While still a ways from being comparable to the proprietary graphics drivers in terms of features and OpenGL performance, the open-source GPU drivers found by default in the forthcoming Ubuntu 13.04 release are a big improvement over the out-of-the-box graphics drivers found in earlier Ubuntu Linux releases. The Ubuntu desktop is also faster thanks to improvements to its Unity desktop environment and Compiz compositing window manager. In this article are Linux gaming benchmarks looking at the performance of Fedora 17, Fedora 18, Ubuntu 12.10, and a preliminary Ubuntu 13.04 development snapshot. In this first article, the OpenGL performance of Intel and Radeon graphics are being benchmarked."

REVIEW: Cougar GX-S 600W@ PureOverclock
     Sun, Feb 10 2013 | 9:14A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While premium kilowatt power supplies may garner much of the attention and buzz in the marketplace, it is the more affordable, mid-range units that quietly bring in the profits. And that`s where the Cougar GX-S 600W might offer a solution. While this unit isn`t a behemoth like some we`ve seen of late, the GX-S 600W is 80PLUS Gold certified and comes with a price of $119. Seems pretty good so far, so let`s take a closer look at this Cougar power supply and see how it fares."
