Palit GTX980 Super Jetstream OC Review
     Tue, Oct 14 2014 | 4:36P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nvidia’s recent GTX970 and GTX980 launch has been one of the most successful we can remember. We have already analysed many partner cards and today we look at the new flagship model from Palit – the GTX980 Super Jetstream. This card is the first one that ships with a core clock speed over 1,200mhz ‘out of the box’. It is also the first high end Maxwell card we have tested with enhanced memory timings as well. How does it stack up against other cards available on the market today?

Posted by: STAFF
Today we are reviewing the GTX 970 GAMING Twin Frozr V from MSI and we are going to put it through some synthetic, real life and feature tests. MSI state they have spent 18 months working on the Twin Frozr V, listening and incorporating the request from fans and users alike.

Cooltek UMX2
     Tue, Oct 14 2014 | 4:33P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Cooltek UMX2 is a compact full ATX case with a designer body. Constructed of solid aluminum and utilizing an interesting approach to the interior layout, it does not only look good, but sounds intriguing as well. But is it all superficial beauty or does it also have what counts on the inside?

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 4 GB @ techPowerUp
     Tue, Oct 14 2014 | 4:22P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today NVIDIA releases their new GeForce GTX 980 which brings the Maxwell architecture to the high-end. It features massive power efficiency improvements, reduced noise, but also beats GTX 780 Ti in raw performance. Pricing is quite acceptable, too, with $549 MSRP."

The NZXT Phantom 240 is the Phantom series entry level gaming chassis. With the looks of the chassis mimicking that of its larger brothers, will this compact case be the menacing Phantom or just a little blimp on our radar?"

Gainward Phantom GeForce GTX 970 4GB Graphics Card Review
     Tue, Oct 14 2014 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nvidia’s Maxwell GTX 980 arrived into the high-end graphics card market with a thump just a few weeks ago, causing significant whiplash to AMD’s highest end offerings. The GTX 980 holds a significant advantage in terms of performance, price and power efficiency over AMD’s flagship R9 290X. During the GTX 980 launch it has been easy to forget that Nvidia actually launched the GTX 970 too which comes in $230 cheaper with only a marginal decline in raw GPU horsepower over the flagship GTX 980. On paper, at least, the GTX 970 looks to be a performance to price champion in the high-end graphics card market as it offers the best synthesis of price, performance and power consumption.

Blackbox M10 SE Active Noise Cancelling Headphones Review
     Tue, Oct 14 2014 | 12:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A couple of weeks ago i had to go to the airport near where i live at 7 in the morning in order to welcome a good friend of mine so as always i packed my smartphone along with my wallet and a pair of headphones and made my way there. Well the thing is that i actually managed to get there quite earlier and i was somewhat glad since i was hoping that there wouldn't be too many people at the airport so early in the morning (i rarely travel so early) and thus I’d be able to enjoy my coffee while listening to my favorite tunes. Unfortunately this wasn't the case and so the amount of noise coming from the terminals and from everyone around me made it quite hard for me to enjoy listening to music. Because of this the moment i came back home i started searching online to find a reasonably priced headphone set that offered active noise cancellation and thus could be used in noise intensive environments such as bus terminals, trains and yes even airports. The M10 SE active noise cancelling headphones by BlackBox were amongst the top results of our search and so it didn't take long for us to receive a review sample.

MyDigitalSSD BP4e mSATA SSD Review (512 GB)
     Tue, Oct 14 2014 | 9:05A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we think of solid state drives today, two things comes to mind: how fast can it go and how much is going to cost me. Typically these two go hand in hand, the more speed you want the more its going to cost you. But what happens when you dont want to fork out the big bucks for a quick drive? Welcome to ECO drives by MyDigitalSSD, where not only are you getting decent data transfer speeds, but at a very fair price and a super small form factor."

Corsair Voyager Air 2 Wireless Hard Drive Review @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Oct 14 2014 | 9:01A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The mobile market has grown absolutely huge over the past several years, but sometimes we find that data sharing isn?t very convenient and storage space is limited on our devices. Thankfully manufacturers are designing devices to share your data across multiple devices, even providing you the capability to stream high definition video content across these devices ? all hopefully trouble free. Last year we took a look at Corsair?s first wireless hard drive, called Voyager Air, which was a very sleek and impressive unit that we really liked. Today, we?re going to take a look at the more recently revamped version, conveniently called Voyager Air 2. We?ll take a look and see what this drive all has to offer and if there is anything new brought to the table."
