Review: ASUS Maximus V Formula @ Ocaholic
     Fri, Sep 14 2012 | 11:44A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Next to the Maximus V Extreme ASUS has a second ROG motherboard in their recent Z77 line-up ROG (Republic of Gamers) line-up. What we`re talking about is the Maximus V Formula which comes with a few less features but therefore also a lower price tag. We`re really curious to see wether this board can keep up with the Extreme monster of if it has to stand in the shadow of the big brother."

Gigabyte Aivia Krypton Gaming Mouse Review @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Sep 14 2012 | 9:53A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A quick look at the specifications of the Gigabyte Krypton mouse gives us insight that it utilizes a dual chassis design, and that this mouse has the capability of using a high DPI of 8200. The Krypton mouse also contains 32k of on board memory so that this mouse will retain the multiple profiles we will be programming with this mouse, so if we move to another computer, this mouse will retain those settings without the need to install the software on those other computers..."

Mad Catz Cyborg F.R.E.Q.5 Stereo Gaming Headset Review
     Fri, Sep 14 2012 | 9:30A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ever since i can remember myself i never actually used headsets while playing games and watching movies, not because i don`t like using them (i do when i listen to music sometimes) but mainly due to the fact that regular complete surround speaker systems (5.1/6.1/7.1) sound a lot better especially if you don`t have to care about annoying someone in the process (don`t ever place your computer system in the bedroom). However from time to time there have been some quite unique headsets that have won me over with their crystal clear audio clarity and quality of materials just like the AX Pro Dolby 5.1 Surround Headset by TRITTON i had the chance to test just over a year ago and just now the F.R.E.Q.5 Stereo Gaming Headset by Cyborg."

REVIEW: Cooler Master Storm Stryker @ PureOverclock
     Fri, Sep 14 2012 | 9:28A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have the opportunity today to take a look at the new Cooler Master CM Storm Stryker Chassis to see how close it comes to that Holy Grail of balancing looks and usefulness. We must say, the unique touches, in both form and functionality, that Cooler Master has added into the Stryker really caught our attention. Cooler Master really put a great deal of thought into this case. From the sturdy carry handle at the top, to the external SSD hot-swap dock, the case attempts to offer a multitude of features. It even has the ability to be used as a workstation that is air cooled, or you can configure it to be a hardcore gaming rig that is completely water cooled."

Synology DS413j Review @ Vortez
     Fri, Sep 14 2012 | 9:10A | Hard Drives | PermaLink

Patriot Gauntlet Node Wi-Fi Storage Enclosure
     Fri, Sep 14 2012 | 9:01A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are a couple of inconveniences of modern connected living that Patriot Memory is trying to address with a product called the Gauntlet Node. One is the problem of storage; the only computer or mobile device we have--and you know that we have quite a few--that isn’t constantly running out of local storage, is your big desktop system. Whether it’s due to our packrat-like tendencies, our prolific shutterbugging, our library of music and movies, or the need to maintain secure backups of all of it, file storage is a nagging problem. The Gauntlet Node is a wireless hard drive enclosure that offers a possible solution to both problems; it’s a self-contained portable media server that supports bulk storage (hard drives and SSDs) and can stream via WiFi to up to 8 devices simultaneously.

     Fri, Sep 14 2012 | 9:00A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Logitech G600 is designed for gamers that enjoy role playing games and MMOs, with the 12 buttons on the left side. If you spend many hours playing (online) RPGs, then you will definitely enjoy this mouse.

AZZA's Genesis 9000
     Thu, Sep 13 2012 | 4:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AZZA's Genesis 9000 is a beefy and hefty full-tower case that offers customization configuration for your hardware components through features like a reversible motherboard tray, as well as lots of internal room including enough space for two power supplies and a 480mm radiator. We test this bad boy in our latest case review.

EVGA GTX 660 SC Edition
     Thu, Sep 13 2012 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The time is at last right for NVIDIA to official launch its GeForce GTX 660 after a few delays. Designed to compete against AMD's Radeon HD 7850, the GTX 660's new 28nm GK106 continues to leverage the SMX (streaming multiprocessor) architecture and GPU Boost technology first seen on the higher-end GTX 680. The EVGA GTX 660 SC Edition we're reviewing today features 960 CUDA cores, a 980MHz "base" GPU clock and a maximum potential GPU Boost clock of 1032MHz. The EVGA offering packs 2GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 6GHz with a 192-bit memory interface, which could mean it performs much closer to the HD 7870. Hit our launch review of the GTX 660 to see how the new Kepler-based card places!

Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 review incl. SLI: Kepler
     Thu, Sep 13 2012 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The GeForce GTX 660 appears to be a great card for gaming on Full HD resolution. Until recently you had to spend £239 to be able to do that, and now it's less than £200. We did notice that with the highest settings, the GTX 660 was at times a little more sluggish than the faster GTX 660 Ti. You could scale down the settings somewhat, or spend a little more and get the GeForce GTX 660 Ti or Radeon HD 7950.

ASUS KFA2 and MSI GeForce GTX 660 reviews with 2-way SLI
     Thu, Sep 13 2012 | 3:57P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA today launches the GeForce GTX 650 and 660. Especially that GTX 660 (not to confuse with the GTX 660 Ti) is about to stir some emotion in the land of graphics cards. Starting today up to next week we`ll have a series of reviews and articles covering the new products. We start off with three board partner reviews."
