Gold from Corsair: Corsair AX PSU Series Roundup
     Thu, May 24 2012 | 9:02A | Power Supply | PermaLink

Diablo 3 Launches without AMD Eyefinity / NVIDIA Surround Support
     Thu, May 24 2012 | 9:00A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Diablo 3 will undoubtedly be a success for Blizzard, both critically and financially. However, in their willful choice to not support AMD Eyefinity and NVIDIA Surround, Blizzard has chosen to ignore the desires of their most fervent userbase - those PC gamers who invest in cutting edge rigs and push PC gaming to its limits. Blizzard did add multi-monitor support through "fullscreen windowed" mode. Windowed mode in PC games introduces performance hits for users, and prohibits the use of CrossFire or SLI (something multi-monitor users will most likely need, and probably have). Blizzard could have gone the way of Torchlight II developer Runic Games and offer native multi-monitor support with a HUD (particularly the automap) built special for Eyefinity and Surround. (Video of applicable Torchlight II footage in the blog post.)

GEFORCE GTX 670 Launch Review at Hardware Heaven
     Thu, May 24 2012 | 8:45A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The GTX 670 takes the features of the GTX 680 and tweaks the configuration to hit a lower price point while still being competitive. We have two custom, factory overclocked GTX 670 cards on our test bench and will be putting them up against overlocked versions of the GTX 680, GTX 570, 7970 and 7950 to find out how each enhanced model performs when paired with an i7 CPU at 5.0GHz."

ECS Z77H2-A2X Black Edition Intel Z77 Motherboard Review
     Wed, May 23 2012 | 11:37P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today PCSTATS has a real treat for you - the ECS Z77H2-A2X Black Edition Golden motherboard! Every metallic surface on this board is gold plated so it's got quite the 'bling' factor going for it. The reason for all the gold is that 2012 is the year of the Dragon in the Chinese zodiac calender, making this a very auspicious time. ECS's Z77H2-A2X motherboard is built around the Intel Z77 chipset and primed for Intel's 22nm 3rd Gen. Intel Core i3/i5/i7 'Ivy Bridge' processors.

Review: ASUS Maximus V Gene @ ocaholic
     Wed, May 23 2012 | 4:09P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With their ROG-series ASUS traditionally aims at gamers and overclockers. Finally the manufacturer managed to target gamers with their Formula and Gene motherboards and overclockers with the Extreme models. For the Gene series motherboards it`s special that they feature an mATX formfactor and it is therefore possible to build a gaming powerhouse that is compact in size."

REVIEW: BitFenix Shinobi XL @ PureOverclock
     Wed, May 23 2012 | 4:09P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The BitFenix Shinobi XL is a full tower case that appears to borrow the great ideas we saw on the Shinobi, while expanding them into a larger version, with a few tweaks. Mid-towers can only do so much for some people, and for those that need a full tower option, perhaps for a water cooling setup or expensive gear, the Shinobi XL looks to be a great option."

SilverStone Raven RV03 Review @ Vortez
     Wed, May 23 2012 | 4:09P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So here we are with the 3rd rendition inside the RAVEN Series - RV03. This case was introduced to the market last year and as the model name suggests is the next instalment. Rather than flip the motherboard tray over SilverStone have kept it traditional but have still given a 90 degree orientation. RV03 features a fresh design, some new features and of course a totally unique approach to how we look at building a computer system, so I am looking forward to giving my full verdict on this case today."

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX150 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Wed, May 23 2012 | 4:09P | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX150 is a compact camera that packs a punch. It has a 10x optical zoom, an 18-megapixel resolution and excellent photo and video quality. The camera`s small size makes it a little difficult to keep steady while shooting, so steady hands or a mini-tripod is a must for the clearest of images."

Steelseries Diablo 3 Gaming Mouse @ Techreaction.net
     Wed, May 23 2012 | 4:09P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
the Diablo 3 gaming mouse did great and worked well with the Demon Hunter surface. The customized driver suite looks great and is easy to navigate. The 7 customizable buttons are enough to get through Diablo 3 without too much problem. Having the automatic switching of profiles available once you start certain applications will save you some time and annoyance, since you wont have to go in and adjust settings every time. Being able to switch CPI on-the-fly to one of your two preset settings is good and should let you control every situation Diablo 3 will throw at you. With the big sized Demon Hunter surface, you should have plenty of room to maneuver without running off any edges. The red LED lighting on the mouse adds a little extra to the overall aesthetics, which may attract more people to it. Top that off with the custom paint job, and Diablo enthusiasts should go crazy over this."

Thermaltake Overseer RX-I Case Review @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, May 23 2012 | 4:09P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the major things that separates the Overseer RX-1, is the amount of internal room of this chassis. Granted, I am using an older but still fairly large AMD/ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2 video card with an Arctic Cooling Accelero GPU cooler on it, but trying to find a chassis that can easily handle this large video card configuration is darn near impossible. The Thermaltake Overseer RX-1 chassis not only handles this large card with ease, it makes this large video card look tiny once installed into this chassis..."

Corsair Vengeance M90 Mouse Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Wed, May 23 2012 | 4:09P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After testing most of the products within the Vengeance brand from Corsair, we finally put our hands on the M90 mouse. So far, we`ve tested the combo mouse/keyboard for FPS games, the M60and K60, and the K90 keyboardfor RPGs and strategy games. The M90 mouse is a perfect match for the K90 keyboard. Featuring 15 programmable buttons, the peripheral reaches 5,700 dpi of resolution. The user can create six profiles stored in the internal memory and 50 profiles that can be saved in the PC. Let`s take a look at its physical characteristics and then test the mouse."
