     Wed, Jan 12 2011 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Palit launched a GeForce GTX 570 with what the refer to as a mercury design. The name of the product is tagged under their known Sonic Platinum edition series, and as you guys know that guarantees more features and some extra's. The extra's can be found in the customized looks with that very dandy looking dual-fan GPU cooler. Next to that Palit pre-clocked the product at a nice 800 MHz for you on the core, 1600 MHz on the shader domain and even the memory got bumped up towards 4000 MHz (effective).

Seasonic X-460 Fanless 460W Powersupply Review
     Tue, Jan 11 2011 | 4:44P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

"In this review PCSTATS is testing out an entirely fanless, silent 460W power supply from Seasonic's modular "X" series. There aren't very many fanless power supplies on the market so this is a bit of a treat. If you're planning on building 100% silent computer system the Seasonic X-460 Fanless is certainly tempting; it features a 460 Watt power level, modular cable system, matt black fingerprint resistant steel case, good EMI shielding and is able to sustain a peak load of 38A on the +12V rail."

$90 mid-tower case for the value market
     Tue, Jan 11 2011 | 4:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Thermaltake Armor A60 has a suggested retail price of around $90, which when taking into account all of the features this case includes seems very reasonable. However, the price puts it in direct competition with some of the best sub-$100 cases around. Just a few years ago any PC chassis that cost less than $100 was relatively cheap in design and function. But now $100 cases are made of high quality materials and include a wide array of supported technologies. This means A60 will really have to deliver the goods to stand out in what is quickly becoming an overcrowded market."

     Tue, Jan 11 2011 | 12:58P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sapphire has just announced that for the very first time it will introduce Intel based mainboards in the high-end sector. This might come as a shock to many, but back in June 2010 news broke that several key EVGA motherboard team members left and headed over to Sapphire. Read on to see the Sapphire Pure Black motherboard series that has boards for P67 and X58 chipsets!

Quote: "Sapphire will be bringing two motherboards to market. The first one will be the Pure Black X58 and the second will be the Pure Black P67 Hydra. We are going to start with the Sapphire Pure Black P67 Hydra motherboard as this is the motherboard for the new Intel Sandy Bridge processor that was announced last week. This board stands out from the crowd as it uses the Lucid Hydra chip to allow a mix of mutli-GPU graphics configurations to be used in its PCI-Express slots. As you can see from the image above the board has four PCIe x16 slots and two legacy PCI slots..."
