ASUS Z87-Deluxe/Dual LGA1150 Intel Motherboard Review
     Fri, Oct 04 2013 | 11:45A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
How many new features can you cram onto a motherboard that are both useful and innovative? ASUS is the expert at doing this, and their history of innovations is long: the custom EPU and TPU processors; intelligent fan control, the ability to update your BIOS on a board with no CPU and RAM installed, and so forth. The Z87-Deluxe/Dual LGA1150 motherboard shows that ASUS is not content to rest on its laurels. With new features like Near Field Communications and 802.11ac support, this motherboard has it all."

Intel NUC Kit D54250WYK Review @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Oct 04 2013 | 9:45A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last year the Intel introduced the Next Unit of Computing (NUC) and we were amazed by the power, capabilities and performance of what you could do with a four inches square.  PC users around the world quickly found out that the Intel NUC was small yet powerful and used them as general use PCs, home theater PCs, media servers, and/or a multitude of other configurations.The first generation NUC left us impressed, but there was certainly room for improvement. Intel is severely limited by the NUC`s ultra-compact device design, but the new Intel NUC packs more features into an even slimmer form factor. This is not a small feat as the designers had a long list of changes to be made. Besides making the NUC faster and more energy efficient, they also had to improve cooling and add better connectivity options. Read on to see how it performs!"

Cooler Master N600 (NSE-600-KKN1) Mid-Tower Case Review @HiTech Legion
     Fri, Oct 04 2013 | 9:42A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Cooler Master`s N600 (NSE-600-KKN1) is a mid-tower gaming case. The Cooler Master N600 boasts three 5.25 drive bays, and seven 3.5 internal drives alongside five 2.5 bays. That is a lot of drive space for a smaller case. The total case size is 8.1 * 17.9 * 18.9 inches (W/H/D). When a case that size is also able to equip a graphics card a full 16.9 inches long, you know it was made with high end gaming in mind. Of course, Cooler Master being the masters of cool, it is a great looking case that also provides an enormous amount of airflow, including the fairly unique right side fan mount (fan not included). /"

Cooler Master COSMOS SE Review
     Thu, Oct 03 2013 | 6:21P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This is an amazing case. Solid, well-built, and looks great from any angle. A true case for the enthusiast. It really has the wow factor and it is a nice compliment to the larger COSMOS II. To some, a computer case is a necessary evil. A cold, sterile place for your computer hardware. To others it is a statement. A bold line in the sand. And those people spend a lot of time examining each model, each brand - comparing features, options and prices (I am one of those people). Anytime a new model comes out I pour over the details. But it is just a case, right? Well, to me each case has a personality and selecting the right case is an essential part of the build. The COSMOS series has five models, each with a feature set and price point aimed at a specific group. The SE brings a lot to the table, and looks great doing it. It has space, expandability, and support for large top and front radiators. For the enthusiast or even the casual builder who is looking for a case with a lot of bang for the buck, the COSMOS SE hits that sweet spot of total functionality and style that won`t disappoint."

Tesoro Kuven 7.1 Virtual Surround Gaming Headset
     Thu, Oct 03 2013 | 1:17P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Audio related reviews may not be the easiest ones to perform and release especially since they do tend to take quite a bit of time (although the good thing about most is that you can do so while performing other tasks at the same time even other reviews) but all of us here happen to cherish high quality audio so we too are interested in seeing (or better yet listening) just how good all the latest headsets, headphones and earphones to hit the market really are. Now lately we`ve been doing quite a few related reviews so i was seriously thinking of moving away and to other product areas for a while but since i also happen to believe that we need to know first-hand exactly what it is that we are giving away to our readers today we decided to finalize and upload the review of the quite amazingly looking Kuven 7.1 Virtual Surround Gaming Headset by Tesoro."

Corsair Force Series LS 240GB SSD Review
     Thu, Oct 03 2013 | 12:52P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to SSD controllers, up until recent times LSI/SandForce and Marvell have pretty much ruled the roost. Other than a few instances of utilizing proprietary controllers (such as Samsung does in most of their SSDs), and a smaller player in Indilinx (acquired by OCZ), there were no other options for manufacturers to engineer a new SSD with. That has recently begun to change, as other controllers are beginning to appear on the scene. The last Corsair SSDs (the Neutron and Neutron GTX) that we reviewed back in August featured the new Link A Media (LAMD) 6 GB/s controller. Corsair was one of the first SSD manufacturers to hit the retail market, and although they have proceeded a bit more carefully than other manufacturers, they have earned a reputation as providing some of the top performing SSDs that money can buy. Their success in SSDs has shown with their willingness to explore different controllers in search of the best, as well as bringing out non-standard SSD capacities that few others offer. The Corsair Performance Pro was one of the better SSDs we have tested, and it surprised everyone as it is based on the Marvell 9174 controller, and Corsair truly found the sweet spot in its performance."

ADATA XPG V2 RAM DDR3-2400 8GB Memory Kit Review
     Thu, Oct 03 2013 | 11:45A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Some of the most difficult to answer questions in the enthusiast and high-end gaming PC world have to do with RAM, and more specifically with RAM clock speeds, latency, and timings. What differences do all of these make when it comes to better performance and higher frame rates in games? Typically, the answer is that they do very little when it comes to games. AMD has sought to change that answer with the release of their Richland series APUs, which are designed to take even more advantage of RAM speeds and support up to 2133MHz clock speeds. Intel?s Haswell now supports speeds of up to 1600MHz. Now that more is being done to increase the performance gain from higher RAM speeds, let?s take a look at the results. Here at Benchmark Reviews, we have a couple of new high-speed RAM kits to review. In this article, we will be taking a look at the ADATA XPG V2 4GBx2 DDR3-2400 PC19200 AX3U2400W4G11 DRAM Kit."

News: Heres why the CrossFire Eyefinity/4K story matters
     Thu, Oct 03 2013 | 11:36A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this week, we posted a news item about an article written by Ryan Shrout over at PC Perspective. In the article, Ryan revealed some problems with using a Radeon CrossFire multi-GPU setups and multiple displays. I noticed that many folks reacted to our news item by asking why this story matters, given the known issues with CrossFire that have persisted literally for years. I have been looking into these things for myself, and I think I can explain."
