GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 650 Ti 1GB Review
     Thu, Dec 20 2012 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA does such a great job filling holes in its product line-ups, that sometimes it manages to fill a void we didn’t even know existed. The GTX 650 Ti is a perfect example of this. This GK106-based card sits close to the GTX 660, and with GIGABYTE’s overclocked GV-N65TOC-1GI, we’ll see if we can close the gap even further.

Corsair Hydro Series H55 Quiet Liquid Cooler Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Thu, Dec 20 2012 | 9:05A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I, myself have been using an AIO kit since I saw how much cleaner a rig looks with one compared to typical heat sinks. Corsair has released several AIO units in the past few years which would include the H40, H50, H60, H70, H80 and H100. Each has served many well but there is a time when technology advantages and change come. The H55 is the new kid on the block and looking to take the place of the H50 as the quiet cooler. One that someone would purchase to replace the stocker that comes in the box with your CPU."

Corsair Neutron GTX 120GB SSD Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Thu, Dec 20 2012 | 9:05A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Equipped with Link-A Media Device`s latest controller, the Corsair Neutron GTX 120GB comes in poised to take on not only the competition, but many larger drives as well. The Corsair GTX 120GB SSD doesn`t shy away from incompressible data like many other drives, and keeps its speeds regardless of data type. The speeds of the Neutron GTX 120GB are not shy, either, with 550MB/s read and 330MB/s write. IOPS permance is over 80k at 4k aligned, with no degredation due to data type. To take advantage of the performance, the Neutron GTX 120GB uses a SATA 6.0Gb/s interface and is backwars compatible to SATA I and SATA II. For ultrabook users the Neutron GTX fits into the new 7mm form factor while still offering enthusiast class performance. Corsair backs the Neutron GTX 120GB SSD with a five year warranty."

Corsair Vengeance 2000 Wireless 7.1 Gaming Headset Review @ TechwareLabs
     Thu, Dec 20 2012 | 9:05A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Looking to take your PC gaming to the next level? Trying to find a way to crank up the sound without imposing on your neighbors or loved ones? Looking for the extra level of immersion into your current PC game of choice? Then youre probably in the market for a quality headset for your PC. For many years I was resistant about using a headset and honestly only used one with for communicating with my friends while gaming. However, recent changes in my life (becoming a father) have forced my hand into looking for a headset that can offer me voice and a comparable (or better) surround sound experience to my 5.1 setup. Needless to say, when Corsair sent us their Vengeance 2000 Wireless 7.1 Gaming Headset to review, I eagerly jumped at the opportunity."

Review: Crucial Ballistix Sport VLP 2x8GB DDR3-1600MHz CL9 1.35v @ Ocaholic
     Wed, Dec 19 2012 | 12:40P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
About four months ago, we reviewed no less then four Crucial DDR3-1866 as wells as DDR3-1600 memory kits and we noticed that all of them share the same, highly overclockable Micron ICs. This got us thinking whether or not it is possible to have a similar experience using their brand new Ballistix Sport VLP modules, which hit the market something like a month ago."

Crucial Ballistix Sport VLP 1600MHz 16GB Kit Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Wed, Dec 19 2012 | 11:06A | Memory | PermaLink

This problem could be rectified simply by journeying over to Crucial.com and ordering up a new set of Ballistix Sport VLP memory kit. Not only will they eliminate the clearance problem between the two components but also omit having to pump tons of voltage in the DIMM to get a good heavy clock out of them."

Patriot Gauntlet 320 Wireless Portable Drive Review @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Dec 19 2012 | 10:24A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the popularity of smart phones and tablets, the need expanded storage to house numerous large media files has increased. A big problem is, many tablets and phones (Apple devices in particular) lack the functionality to add additional capacity via media cards, etc. and upgrading to larger capacities is very expensive as compared to adding external storage. This leaves many buyers in a quandary of spending less and hoping they don`t need the space, or splurging for the larger capacity models with a premium price tag. Patriot has recognized this dilemma and decided the answer the knock of opportunity by designing a device to give consumers another option. The Patriot Gauntlet 320 wireless portable drive allows users of iOS, Android, and Kindle Fire to access content stored on the drive wirelessly through an app that can be downloaded for free..."
