Patriot Viper III 2400MHz Black Mamba
     Fri, Oct 11 2013 | 11:45A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Patriot has been in the market for a long time but it is the lesser known little brother in the memory game. However this has not kept them from making some very cool memory models among other devices such as USB flash drives, mobile wireless storage and even a Android powered set top box and im sure many more things I cannot even think of right now. But without getting too crazy off topic what we are looking at today is their model from the Viper III series labeled Black Mamba which is very nice looking sticks with aggressive heatspreaders and a very aggressive speed/timing configuration. Being named Black Mamba I could only assume means to assert the aggressive and deadly power these sticks hold within."

Cooler Master Cosmos SE Full Tower Case Review @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Oct 11 2013 | 10:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cooler Master has been known for making some great computer hardware, and cases are no exception. Back in 2007, Cooler Master came out with the first iteration of the Cosmos case, named the Cosmos 1000. This case was well received by enthusiasts, and even I myself purchased one because I loved the design, features, and size. Over time, Cooler Master came out with different versions to add new features or even just minor updates to the original Cosmos 1000 case under the Cosmos 1010 name. Today we?re going to take a look at another version of the Cosmos, the freshly available Cosmos SE. The Cosmos SE is significantly smaller than its siblings, so let?s take a look and see what the Cosmos SE has to offer inside a smaller package!"

Rosewill RHMS-13002 Dual Swing Arm Monitor Mount Review
     Fri, Oct 11 2013 | 9:03A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are in the hunt for a 24? or below dual monitor desktop mount you are in luck as they have always been pretty easy to find. Such has not been the case for dual 27? monitors where, although one or two have been available, there has always been concerns with respect to appearance or construction, much less price if you approached high end solutions. Rosewill has changed all that with their new RHMS-13002 Dual Swing Arm Monitor mount and just in time for the arrival of our two Korean 2560×1440 QNIX display monitors which we will have a separate review up for very shortly.

OCZ Vertex 450 256GB SSD @ Custom PC Review
     Fri, Oct 11 2013 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"This of course leads us OCZ’s latest offering, the OCZ Vertex 450, which we’ll be reviewing today. The OCZ Vertex 450 is the newest SSD in OCZ’s lineup and for the most part is an update of sorts to the already successful Vertex 4. On the controller side, OCZ has moved away from their short lived time with the Marvell hardware based Indilinx Everest 2 controller in favor of the completely in house designed Indilinx Barefoot 3 controller..."

OCZ Fatal1ty Series 750W
     Fri, Oct 11 2013 | 9:00A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Power supplies are one area that OCZ has continued with success, and today we’re looking at the Fatal1ty Series 750W unit. Named for the 12-time world champion Johnathan “Fatal1ty” Wendel, this power supply is of one of OCZ’s latest namesake products. This unit also comes with an 80PLUS Bronze rating and is also entirely geared to gamers that want something a bit more flashy. The Fatal1ty 750W model comes with some interesting features and appears to be very capable, at least on paper. We know that sheet specs certainly don’t tell the real story though, so let’s take a closer look at this new unit and get it on the bench to check out its performance.”

Noctua 120mm NF-S12A (ULN FLX PWM) Fan Review
     Fri, Oct 11 2013 | 12:26A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Noctua NF-S12As performed very well. At idle, the highest two speed settings for the FLX kept the CPU running essentially as cool as its competition, with the temperatures going up as fan speeds went down. This trend continues for all of the Noctua fans; lower RPMs means higher temperatures. Except for the PWM fan, right? Wrong. The fan controller just kept the RPMs so low that the speed settings didnt affect the outcome. The Load results were more interesting and surprising. ALL of the Noctua NF-S12A fans kept my i5-2500K in check @ 4.5 GHz under full load. The highest temperature reading was achieved while using the 600 RPM settings for the ULN model and those were just above 70 C. The Noctuas have proven to me that they can compete with the best because of the well thought out design and not the sheer speed of the fans."

Step forward the ASUS GTX 760 DirectCU Mini OC. The latest card from ASUS has all of the power of a regular GTX 760, arrives factory overclocked and has ASUS` DirectCU custom cooler. Yet it measures just 17cm in length! Instead of attaching a cooler which makes the card look bigger than it actually is, ASUS have kept the reference PCB length and designed a cooler to the same size."
