Be Quiet! Pure Power L8 700W Power Supply Review @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Oct 28 2013 | 7:25A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Be Quiet! is an European company which, despite the strange name, is a very well-known manufacturer  amongst enthusiasts, mostly for their high quality (and notoriously expensive) power supply units. We had an encounter with their very impressive Dark Power Pro 10 series a few months ago; however, impressive as it was, the price tag of such a power supply would certainly drive the vast majority of users away. Today we will be having a look at the least expensive PSU series currently offers, the Pure Power L8."

Sapphire R9 280X Toxic Review
     Mon, Oct 28 2013 | 1:07A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So there you have it, another custom built card from Sapphire that takes what AMD has to offer and bring it kicking and screaming to reach another performance plateau. Considering that the R9 280X Toxic is built upon the aging Tahiti XT core, the performance squeezed from this card allows it to play well above its price point of $349. Not to draw the wrong conclusion, but this card does what last year`s HD 7970 6GB Toxic Edition card did and does just about everything better when you look at gaming performance and to some degree power consumption. Let`s start with the gaming performance of the Sapphire R9 280X Toxic. Throughout the resolutions tested, the card was markedly better than the HD 7970 in every single test while delivering performance on par with or better than the GTX 770, again through each test. Depending on the test the R9 280X Toxic could deliver FPS results within a couple FPS of the GTX 780, which costs better than $300 more in most cases"

NZXT Source 530 Full Tower Case Review @HiTech Legion
     Sun, Oct 27 2013 | 6:38P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The NZXT Source 530 is just such a case, clean lines with minimal flair but maximum efficiency make it a solid choice for entry level builds. NZXT has made the Source 530 a good looking case without tacking on a lot of out of place flair. The Source 530 provides a one inch clearance at the narrowest space behind the mother board panel, but that opens up to a full 1.25 inches near the bottom where most of the PSU cabling comes through.

AMDs Radeon R9 280X and 270X graphics cards

AMD has uncorked a whole heap of new Radeons, and we`ve compared the top two Radeon R9 cards against the competition from the GeForce camp--and against some legacy Radeons of yore. Long story short: fast graphics just got a whole lot cheaper."

Ubuntu Linux Gaming Performance Mostly On Par With Windows 8.1
     Sun, Oct 27 2013 | 1:07P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Given the recent release of Microsoft Windows 8.1, at Phoronix we took 13 different AMD Radeon and NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards and compared the performance between Ubuntu Linux and Windows 8.1 with the same hardware and set of OpenGL games/benchmarks. For AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards with their official drivers, the performance is largely similar between the competing desktop operating systems but there are some performance exceptions."

Windows 8.1 sticks to Microsoft`s strategy of delivering an operating system that`s equally at home on tablets and full-power desktop PCs, but many of the flaws of Windows 8 have been fixed."

Fractal Design ARC XL Review
     Sun, Oct 27 2013 | 11:08A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With a good amount of pros I am only going to focus on what really sells the product to me. First up, water cooling, need I say more? This chassis is amazing with its vast options for any sort of configuration you can think up. It does have its limits when setting up push/pull or thick radiators though. Next, my favorite topics: internal cables and cable management. I am sure people are tired of my complaints involving cable lengths. All this is solved now with a company that actually thought ahead! Fractal Design`s choice to include 1 (26mm) of space behind the motherboard tray was also a great idea. This alone really pushes the case towards stardom. I cannot count how many times the only option I have is to tie all the loose wires and have them block an air intake fan."
