Rosewill Armor EVO E-ATX Computer Case @ Benchmark Reviews
     Sat, Mar 16 2013 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Rosewill has a wide range of computer accessories. Anything from tools, fans, cases, external enclosures, keyboards, and printer toner. Primarily Newegg`s in-house brand, they`ve been expanding their product lines and reach; some of their products have recently started to show up at other retailers. I`ve found many of their products to provide an incredible performance per dollar ratio in the past, as one of my favorite computer chassis of all time is the Rosewill Thor v2. A beast of an enclosure, my only complaint was the Thor was a bit on the large side. When I saw the ARMOR-EVO E-ATX case announced, I wondered if my wish had come true - could the Armor-EVO provide the advantages of the Thor v2 in a smaller package? At Benchmark Reviews, we have a chance to find out..."

NZXT Hale90 V2 1000W Power Supply Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Sat, Mar 16 2013 | 10:28A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The NZXT Hale90 V2 1000W PSU is built on their proven rock solid platform, honed and refined to meet the needs of even the most demanding users. The NZXT Hale90 V2 steps up in two areas that are becoming more and more of a concern for modern users; a fully modular interface and improved power and stability on the 5vsb for USB charging of portable devices. The fully modular interface retains the good looking and easy to route flat cables that NZXT has been using on their high end PSUs for all connections, excepting the black sleeved round 20+4 MB connector. The black backplate incorporates into the Hale90 V2`s monochromatic design, and uses easy to identify labeling for all connectors. Connectors do abound, with six 6+2 PCIe, two 4+4 pin CPU, twelve SATA and fourteen 4-Pin peripheral connectors available. Of course, connectors make no difference without solid power and the NZXT Hale90 V2 1000W offers up a single 12V rail capable of 83A and 996W to satisfy even the most power hungry systems. Solid Japanese capacitors are used for increased reliability and durability throughout. Input voltage is automatically sensed, and the Hale90 V2 can operate in the range of 90-264V. Six way protection circuitry keeps the Hale90 V2 safe from almost any conceivable situation, while NZXT backs the Hale90 V2 1000W with a 5-Year Warranty."

Kingston HyperX 10th Anniversary 16GB 2400MHz Quad Channel Kit Review
     Sat, Mar 16 2013 | 9:53A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Compared to well over a decade ago when we just had but a few memory chip manufacturers nowadays more and more brands keep emerging most of which just rebrand memory chips from the leading manufacturers in the field and ship them to the market as their own (oldest trick in the book). Kingston was one of the very first memory chip manufacturers i got to know pretty well during the 90`s right next to Intel, Viking, GoldStar (LG now) and Nanya so after using their products for roughly 2 decades i know exactly what to expect in terms of quality, performance and after sales support. However although they`ve been making memory kits for over 2 decades it wasn`t until 10 years ago that they introduced their HyperX line of products aimed specifically towards enthusiasts and hardcore gamers. So today we are going to be testing the HyperX 16GB DDR3 2400MHz CL11 quad channel memory kit (KHX24C11X3K4/16X) which was designed specifically to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of their HyperX product line."

SSD News MyDigitalSSD BP4 Slim 7 Series SSD Review (240GB)
     Sat, Mar 16 2013 | 7:05A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MyDigital BP4 that was ` a wolf in sheep`s clothing` in a way as it was a 120GB SSD with an exterior label claiming to be 240GB.After posting the review, MyDigitalSSD called and insisted on sending the REAL 240GB BP4, claiming that it`s performance would be something to write about. Given our workload, one review of a specific model would normally be enough UNLESS we observe a difference worth letting you know about. Higher capacity, same model, and a second report. Does that say anything to you?"

Corsair Vengeance M65 Review @ Vortez
     Fri, Mar 15 2013 | 10:19A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The M65 joins the Vengeance M95 and K95 as a part of a refresh of their peripheral line-up for 2013, in most cases concentrating on making small changes for a more well-rounded whole. The headline change made in the design of the M65 is the inclusion of the 8200DPI Avago ADNS-9800 LaserStream Gaming Sensor, substantially upgrading from the previous 5200DPI sensor, although the promotional material also boasts access to the second generation Vengeance Configuration software utility. Remaining at centre stage are the stylish exposed aluminium-chassis design, sniper button and configurable weight system seen on the M60."
