be quiet! Straight Power 10 CM 800W Semi-Modular Power Supply Review
     Tue, Nov 18 2014 | 9:02A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today be quiet! are expanding their Straight Power series of power supplies with a new range of models. The Straight Power series already has 400W to 700W models under the Straight Power E9 label but now they are adding 400-800W models to the mix under a new Straight Power 10 series. We are looking more specifically at their Straight Power 10 800W CM power supply which, like many existing products in the Straight Power series, features modular cables, a Silent Wings PWM fan and 80 Plus Gold certification. Given the wattage of this model, it also has multi-GPU support making it ideal for Crossfire or SLI based systems. With this new launch be quiet! are continuing their tradition of using FSP as the main OEM as they’ve had a long and successful partnership with FSP who make great power supply internals and be quiet know how to finish the product off with high quality fans, useful features and sharp presentation.

be quiet! SFX Power 2 300W Power Supply Review
     Tue, Nov 18 2014 | 9:00A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When a compact ATX power supply just isn’t compact enough you have to think outside the box, or use a new form factor. The SFX and TFX form factors are two of the most common small form factor power supplies aside from the standard ATX that is so common in desktops. The SFX form factor measures in at 100×125×63.5 mm compared to TFX at 146×83×64mm. SFX is short and stubby while TFX is long and thin. In that sense TFX is more server orientated when server racks tend to be long and thin. Conversely SFX is more orientated towards compact computer systems that are not so obscurely shaped. Very few power supply vendors produce SFX or TFX units for the consumer market due to the fact demand is so low. However, be quiet! being the smart company they are have seen the trend towards SFX and TFX power supplies in recent years as small form factor builds have become more fashionable.

Corsair Graphite 780T Review
     Mon, Nov 17 2014 | 7:20P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
To follow up, the Graphite 780T has many positive things making it well worth the asking price. I don`t have time to write out each in detail or this would go on forever, so I`m just going to cover the things that make it stand out. First up, having support for every aftermarket CPU cooler is a major advantage. When I say every single one, it`s because nothing has topped 200mm yet and that would just be purely insane. I have time and time again given advice for purchasing a cooler, only to find out that a height limit is an issue. At 200mm and a good amount of surrounding space, there isn`t much that will not fit. Going along with the CPU cooler, having space up to 355mm without removing a hard drive cage is insane! I also expect Quad CrossFireX or SLI to not be a problem at all, with a generous amount of airflow provided by two 140mm fans in front. To continue, a dedicated fan controller and long internal cables are almost a must within the high end chassis, as it can really make or break a setup. Given that generally companies don`t include all the potential fans, having extra connectors besides the motherboard is a great addition. The frame itself is well built and solid metal; this is great because all too often cheap metal means it will easily bend and dent from moving it around. I did not have this issue; in fact my back hurt a little after a few lifts because I wasn`t prepared for the weight."

netTALK DUO WiFi VOIP Phone Review @ ModSynergy.com
     Mon, Nov 17 2014 | 3:18P | Imaging | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The savings to be had is incredible! Remember that I pay right now to the telecom company a little over $36 per month for a basic landline service with no extra features, this amounts to about $432 per year. Doing the math for the netTALK DUO WiFi, the first year would cost about $84.69, a savings of $347.31! That`s almost $400 I`m putting back into my own pockets! The savings are undeniable, but they won`t mean much if the netTALK DUO WiFi has issues and can`t perform reliably. Without further ado, lets jump into this review shall we?"

Tesoro Gandiva H1L Laser Gaming Mouse Review
     Mon, Nov 17 2014 | 1:07P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Yesterday i went to the local Nike store to pick a couple of new running shoes since it`s time to replace my old ones and it was then standing in front of a wall with almost 30 different models that i realized how hard it must be for people to choose the right pair between several different models. Of course this example isn`t just for shoes but pretty much everything else in the market including electronics and PC hardware and peripherals (besides to me running shoes are what power supplies and SSDs might be to someone else). This stands especially true for gaming peripherals since choosing the right ones to cover your needs is not the easiest thing since much like shoes we`re not talking about a product that you simply can`t base your decision on performance numbers. Although new Tesoro so far has a perfect track record in the gaming peripherals market and today with us we have their latest Gandiva H1L Laser Gaming Mouse."
