Cooler Master N600 Review
     Mon, Aug 05 2013 | 9:05A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The CPU and GPU idle temps were as expected, nothing remarkable. But under a load, we see the CPU temps on the N600 well below the other cases. I let things cool down, and ran the tests again and got the same results. So, what gives the N600 such an advantage? Normally the CPU cooler has to draw air in from inside the case - air that has already taken on heat from the internal components (motherboard, RAM, GPU, HDD, PSU, etc.). Well, since I am using the Corsair H70 CPU cooler mounted at the rear (in a push / pull configuration), and the top of the case is essentially open and very close to the intake of the H70, it appears that a fresh supply of ambient air was available to the H70, and I suspect that this kept the CPU temps down."

240GB OCZ Vertex 450 Solid State Drive
     Mon, Aug 05 2013 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The last time we tested the OCZ Vertex 4, it was powered by a dual-core Marvell controller that combined technology from separate sources. This time, the OCZ Vertex 450 solid state drive is made of in-house components. Featuring an Indilinx BF3-M10 Barefoot 3 controller that supports 20nm Synchronous Multi-Level Cell (MLC) NAND flash components with AES-256 encryption and Trim support, Vertex 450 is good for 540 MB/s read speeds over a SATA 6-Gb/s connection. In this article Benchmark Reviews tests the 240GB OCZ Vertex 450 SSD, model VTX450-25SAT3-256G, against the leading competition.

Cooler Master Comforter Mini Review
     Sun, Aug 04 2013 | 1:19P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The soft side experience wasn`t as smooth as I was expecting. In fact, it`s so smooth that it will not provide any grip to the already very smooth surfaces on the back of most tablets and cellphones. Using the soft side of the Cooler Master Comforter Mini in a way that the bump provides a nice viewing angle will pretty much limit the actual tilt of the platform to close to zero degrees. Any slight angle will cause the tablet or phone to slide. Flipping the platform around to use the ridge as a wrist rest while preventing my phone from sliding provided more flexibility."

Gigabyte F2A85XN-WIFI Mini-ITX Motherboard review

Posted by: STAFF
1.html,Gigabyte released the mini-ITX based F2A85XN-WIFI, which we review with a AMD A10 6800K APU processor. The motherboard is only 17x17 CM yet offers great features and is incredible fun. Value and fun is what the platform offers. Pop on a nice series 6800 APU from AMD and for normal daily usage is just fine and heck, it`s great for HTPCs and even a game or two."

PowerColor Devil HD7870 2GB @ PureOverclock
     Sun, Aug 04 2013 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“We’ve previously seen two Devil-branded cards from PowerColor, the behemoth 7990 and a previous-gen 6970, both of which are (or were at the time) flagship premium cards. But the Devil HD 7870 2GB is a mid-range card, coming with an attractive price tag of $260. It’s a bit unusual to see a custom cooler, improved power design, and attention to detail on such a modestly priced card, but we certainly approve of the move by PowerColor; better for consumers, we say. Let’s take a closer look at the PowerColor Devil HD7870 2GB and see how it fares.”

Three 500 watt PSUs tested
     Sun, Aug 04 2013 | 12:01P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
500 watts is a popular segment these days. It's more than enough for powering an Ivy Bridge or Haswell CPU and a single mid-range or high-end graphics card. There's a lot of competition in the pricing in this segment. Spending money on a decent PSU is not a small part of the total price of building a capable PC system. For this reason manufacturers try to keep prices for their 500W PSUs as low as possible.
