Corsair Raptor K50 Review @ Ocaholic
     Tue, Aug 20 2013 | 12:45P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Raptor K50, Corsair adds another gaming keyboard with high-end features to its portfolio. But this time they`re using rubber dome switches instead of mechanical ones, which puts this keyobard up against competition from Logitech. From a first glance to product looks well built and there is even the option to change the background light, which give the Raptor K50 a unique touch."

Attitude One Vintorez Review @ Vortez
     Tue, Aug 20 2013 | 12:42P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Vintorez is Attitude One`s first gaming mouse, joining other gaming peripherals such as the Makarov keyboard and Tunguska headsets. Set at around 30-35 Euros or 25-30, it occupies a low to mid-range price position against some of the most well-regarded brands in the business. The design takes cues from the best by including a 3200 DPI optical sensor, flaring main buttons two thumb buttons and rubberised non-slip coating. In a relative rarity at the price point it also incorporates customisable LED illumination and DPI settings; mainstream features for gaming mice at a relatively budget price point."

AMD Radeon HD 6000 Series Open-Source Driver Becomes More Competitive
     Tue, Aug 20 2013 | 11:25A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The R600 Gallium3D driver that provides open-source 3D/OpenGL Linux graphics support for AMD GPUs up through the Radeon HD 6000 graphics cards is becoming increasingly competitive. The open-source AMD stack isn`t yet ready to overtake the proprietary AMD Catalyst driver in terms of raw performance or OpenGL compliance, but a lot of ground has been made up in recent months."

Ozone Oxygen earphones @ Rbmods
     Tue, Aug 20 2013 | 10:08A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

Ozone are still fairly unknown on the gaming market and their products have had mixed results in the reviews I have seen.

Halo: Spartan Assault @ Bjorn3D
     Tue, Aug 20 2013 | 10:08A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Halo is one of those games that will be talked about for many years. Not only did it in many ways help make the first Xbox a success, it also was the game that at least for me proved that you can play a first person shooter (FPS) on a console with a controller. Bungie got it right and paved the way for more FPS on consoles. Ever since the first game was released Microsoft, Bungie and now 363 Studios have been busy releasing new games in the Halo universe and it was of course just a matter of time before they got to the mobile platforms. Halo: Spartan Assault is a game that at first glance does not look like the Halo we know and love but which turns out is a game you just do not want to miss."

NZXT H630 Silent Ultra-Tower Case Review @ HiTech Legion
     Tue, Aug 20 2013 | 9:50A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The H630 is NZXT`s first full-tower case designed for silent-computing. The NZXT H630 shares the same internal base design as the Phantom 630 with two less 5.25 drive bays and increased 3.5 modular cage mounting support. Externally, the H630 adopts a more conservative, less-rounded look compared to the Phantom series while maintaining an unmistakably NZXT signature aesthetic. Noise dampening materials line the top, front and side panels of the H630 to minimize sound output from the enthusiast-class components installed inside. Radiator support up to 360mm is available at the top and front, while a 240mm or 280mm can be installed at the bottom. The H630 HDD cages can even be reconfigured or removed entirely to accommodate thicker radiators for the front. In terms of component support, the NZXT H630 provides 190mm of CPU heatsink height clearance as well as 354mm clearance for video cards with ample cable management routing space of 27mm behind the right side panel. An SD-card reader connected via USB 2.0 header is built into the front panel I/O as well as an LED on/off switch for the rear I/O. The NZXT H630 measures 245 x 547 x 567mm (W x H x D) made of SECC steel as well as ABS Plastic and supports ITX through XL-ATX/EATX motherboard sizes. Right out of the box, the NZXT H630 comes with a 20mm front intake fan as well as a 140mm rear exhaust fan, pre-installed into the built-in 10-channel 3-pin fan hub./"

Vantec 3-Port USB 3.0 Hub with Gigabit Ethernet Review @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Aug 20 2013 | 9:00A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Vantec 3-Port USB 3.0 Hub with Gigabit Ethernet is a product that many mobile users will like. Most Intel Ultrabooks only have one or two USB 3.0 ports and if you need a USB 3.0 Gigabit Ethernet adapter it means that youll possibly be down to one open USB 3.0 port or worse yet, none. This hub takes up one USB 3.0 port, but in return gives you a three USB 3.0 port hub and Gigabit Ethernet..."

ASUS Z87 Sabertooth Motherboard Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Tue, Aug 20 2013 | 7:31A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUSs Sabertooth motherboards have been a big hit since they were introduced, so there was no doubt there would be a Z87 Sabertooth with ASUSs new line of Z87 motherboards. This board is of course built on the LGA1150 socket and supports Intels Fourth Generation Core Haswell processors. The Z87 Sabertooth still keeps the cool Thermal Armor that everyone loves, but adds on to it with the TUF Fortifier backplate. In addition to that you have things like the Thermal Radar 2, Flow Valve and Dust Defender. For those wondering about specifics this board features two PCI Express 3.0 x16 slots (x16 and x8 electrical), a single PCI Express 2.0 x16 slot (x4 electrical) and three PCI Express 2.0 x1 slots. There are 4 DIMM slots with memory support of up to 32 GB of DDR3 memory, eight SATA 6GB/s ports, 4 USB 3.0 ports and a plethora of other connections. Read on as we take a look."

MSI Z87 XPOWER Motherboard Review @ HiTech Legion
     Tue, Aug 20 2013 | 6:19A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Z87 XPOWER is the flagship mainboard from MSI`s Intel 8-series motherboard line. The Z87 XPOWER sports the MSI Lightning color scheme and is designed primarily for overclocking purposes although it also boasts a staggering list of non-OC related features as expected from a mainboard of its price and caliber. Sporting an XL-ATX form factor at 34.5cm x 26.4cm, the MSI Z87 XPOWER is packed with onboard OC functions and an impressive 4-way 8x/8x/8x/8x SLI/CFX support via a PLX PEX8747 chip. The Z87 XPOWER uses Military Class IV components and 32-phase IR3550 ICs on an 8-layer PCB for a highly efficient and stable overclocking performance. Just like the MSI MPOWER MAX, the Z87 XPOWER uses Qualcomm Killer E2200 for low-ping managed network traffic and a Realtek ALC1150 codec with TI OPA1652 amp for high-quality audio which is isolated for minimized interference./"
