Thermaltake ToughPower XT PLATINUM 1275W Power Supply Unit Review
     Wed, Jun 13 2012 | 9:23A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Unlike casual users and gamers most enthusiasts, overclockers and hardcore gamers who are well aware about the benefits of owning a high quality and performance power supply unit put much effort into finding the right one to cover their needs. Now although I`ve seen and tested pretty much every 80Plus Gold Certified PSU out there the same does not apply for Platinum ones and since quite a few have asked today we will be taking a closer look at one of the top rated power supply units in the market today which is no other than the latest ToughPower XT 1275W Platinum PSU by Thermaltake."

Review: Lian Li PC-C60
     Wed, Jun 13 2012 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you frequent C.O.D. you will realize that I am a fan of Lian Li. I have had many of their cases over the years and it seems that they always seem to set the bar just a little higher every time they come out with something new. Granted, there have been some questionable designs over the years (U6), but I tend to forget those rather quickly when I look at the number of extremely well designed and meticulously manufactured chassis they have produced. Recently, Lian Li has produced an HTPC chassis that promises to impress... the PC-C60.

Western Digital went with a black plastic casing on the My Passport 2TB that is adorned with a circular pattern and the WD logo and product name.
