27 2-bay NAS devices tested
     Sun, Jan 12 2014 | 9:02A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NAS devices are the all-in-one kitchen appliance, the jack of all trades of the home network. They can do one thing, they can do many things, and often you don't even need all of the features. While it's great to own a £350 top-of-the-line model, it doesn't mean it's the best solution to your needs. For a lot less money you can buy a versatile NAS that stores files, manages your back-ups and lets you share data over your own network and the internet.

Take me to your Leaderboard - Holiday 2013 Build Guides
     Sun, Jan 12 2014 | 9:02A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the High End system comes a lot more budgetary freedom while still remaining less expensive than a comparable boutique system. The processor is fastest Haswell processor currently available, the unlocked 4770K running at 3.5GHz stock with the potential to overclock it even further. The motherboard paired with this processor is the ASUS Z87-EXPERT which features a lot of added functionality even for a high end Z87 board. You get the ability to use two of the three PCIe 16 slots at 8x if you pick up a second GPU which will offer enough bandwidth for you to get the most from your investments. Eight SATA 6Gbps ports and eight USB 3.0 ports allow plenty of peripherals to be attached and built in WiFi frees you from needing proximity to your router but the most unique feature is Thunderbolt support, something not many boards offer."

Asrock Z87 Extreme11/ac Review
     Sun, Jan 12 2014 | 9:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Asrock's new Z87 Extreme11/ac may very well be the most extreme motherboard we've handled. It touts four-way GPU support, over 20(!) SATA ports, premium onboard audio, dual gigabit Ethernet, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and -- unsurprisingly -- the largest price tag in its class. So, how exactly does a company justify $540 for a motherboard?

GIGABYTE G1-Killer Sniper 5 Z87 Gaming Motherboard
     Sat, Jan 11 2014 | 12:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The GIGABYTE G1-Killer Sniper 5 is something of an experience somewhere between that of a beautiful musical sonnet and a shot fired from 1,000 yards. It’s designed to be an epic gaming motherboard that should enhance the gamer experience yet it seems to be capable of much more. While the Creative audio processor provides an improved gaming experience, it’s the new OP AMP (AMP UP) that gives the Sniper 5 an impressive gaming voice. All kinds of video game genres enjoy enhanced volume allowing gamers to hear and experience sounds in games they probably never knew were there. High definition movies and music will share the same experience. Just tweak and tune til your heart’s content with swappable OP AMPs."
