NZXT Phantom 630 @ techPowerUp
     Sun, Feb 24 2013 | 5:01P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NZXT has taken the 820 and shrunk it, removing some non-vital features in the process: the case clocks in at 50 US Dollars less while still being quite massive, with the same futuristic look and extremely well-engineered interior. We take the 200 US Dollar case for a spin to see if we end up eyeing its bigger brother at all."

Ineo Alienvibes S101 2.0 Desktop Speakers Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Sun, Feb 24 2013 | 1:17P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Alienvibes S101 desktop speakers are one choice that offer you a 2.0 speaker system with the goal of accurate sound reproduction. The Alienvibes S101 feature all wooden cabinet construction for more accurate vibrations and a plastic front bezel that has a high gloss finish on it for style. The speakers themselves produce five watts of power each with a peak output of twenty watts for the pair. The main speaker has a power on off switch, volume control, auxiliary headphone jack, and a LED power indicator. The cabinets are painted black and the front of the speakers do not have a grill cover on them, which shows off the speakers themselves."

Rosewill Tachyon Series 1000W Power Supply Review
     Sun, Feb 24 2013 | 11:48A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new Rosewill Tachyon-1000 proved to be a good performer and offers solid features at a competitive price in the 1000W category. Voltage regulation, AC ripple suppression, and build quality were all very good. Our test unit struggled a little in meeting the 80Plus Platinum efficiency criteria but as we explained earlier this is most likely due to the difference between our real-world, elevated operating temperatures and the 80Plus organizations room temperature standard. The Tachyon-1000 features both fixed and modular cables which will appeal to some users and disappoint those looking for 100% modular."
