Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch PlayStation 3 Review
     Fri, Feb 15 2013 | 1:43P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is a stunningly beautiful PlayStation 3 game, probably the most beautiful Japanese-style RPG you`ll play in 2013, and possibly beyond."

Gigabyte GA-F2A85X-UP4 FM2 Motherboard Review Overkill for Trinity?
     Fri, Feb 15 2013 | 1:17P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall the GA-F2A85X-UP4 is a well rounded board with some very interesting features. It has been a solid and stable motherboard throughout testing, and the performance is right on par with the best in the industry. The price is very reasonable for what is offered and the end user can see the value that they have with all the extras built onto the board. The only problem is the CPU that is placed in it. Trinity is a good product, but it is not a great product. Enthusiasts are not flocking to it. While it is doing well in desktop applications that do not require heavy CPU power and better than average graphics, it does not require a motherboard nearly as stout as what Gigabyte offers."

     Fri, Feb 15 2013 | 12:26P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS`s monsterous ROG flagship is here! The ASUS Maximus V Extreme is built for the hardcore overclocker, with its sights firmly set at knocking the competition off of the top overclocking global records. Packed full of overclocking features and options, I get to see if I can make this lion purr. Turns out, it`s easier than I had hoped."

     Fri, Feb 15 2013 | 11:48A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Echelon Camo Edition, ASUS wants to target first person-shooter gamers. Indeed, this new gaming headset features a camouflage skin to extend gamer`s identity to the real world, right! Besides the camouflage design this headset is equipped with a retractable flexible microphone, a 2.5m long braided cable, in-line volume control and has been designed to be very confortable. Let`s see!"

Corsair Carbide Series 500R Case Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Fri, Feb 15 2013 | 11:04A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I`ve said this before, but I am going to say it againCorsair has really made a name for themselves over the past few years. Not that long ago we only knew them for memory and now they are a top name when it comes to power supplies, cases and gaming accessories. Their entry into the case market was great and every Corsair case that I`ve reviewed I`ve enjoyed. There really has not been much I have not liked about Corsair cases. They have unique designs, good cooling and none of the unneeded crap we find on so many other cases. Today we are taking a look at the top case in their Carbide Series the Carbide 500R. This mid tower case features a sleek design, 4 included fans, USB 3.0 and 2.5-inch hard drive support, a fan controller and much more. Did I mention this case has a MSRP of $129.99. Lets check it out!"

Seasonic Platinum Series 660W Power Supply Review
     Fri, Feb 15 2013 | 9:14A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Like all its X-Series predecessors, the new Seasonic Platinum 660W power supply incorporates significant advances in PC power supply design that result in excellent performance, high efficiency and the ability to operate in silent-fanless mode at lower power levels. Add to that a 7-year warranty, a good assortment of all modular cables, tight voltage regulation, clean DC outputs and you have one very good power supply! However, as you might expect, a premium Platinum efficiency certified PSU is going to be relatively expensive."

CM Storm Trigger Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - BCCHardware
     Fri, Feb 15 2013 | 9:04A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This keyboard wins big when it comes to the keys. I find that the spacing is great and that they are of good quality. They stand up to hard presses and they also register on soft ones thanks to the Cherry MX Red switches. Most everything with this keyboard works extremely well. . ."

Intel Core i7-3960x vs. i7-3970x@Bjorn3D
     Fri, Feb 15 2013 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Intel Core i7-3970X taking the crown for the fastest six-core processor for the desktop market, how can this 150W TDP monster compare to its younger brother, the i7-3960X? Can the $10 difference in price justify its performance and stability? In this review the Core i7-3960X and the Core i7-3970X go head-to-head in some real-world application benchmarks."

Transcend StoreJet 25M3 1 TB External USB 3.0 HDD
     Fri, Feb 15 2013 | 5:16A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall I was quite impressed with this little drive. The small form factor and the durable MIL-spec enclosure combined to form an external drive that will serve you for years. While not always incredibly speedy in the synthetic benchmarks, the real-world performance when copying files to the disk revealed that it can easily hang with the big dogs. You might not win any benchmark wars with this little guy but you will definitely have your files backed up in a very reasonable amount of time!"

Rosewill Tachyon 750W Modular Power Supply - BCCHardware
     Fri, Feb 15 2013 | 1:45A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our test system never even made this sweat until we added an extra load on this unit. As it stands, the Tachyon 750W unit is solid enough to run most hardware without any issues. To stress out the 12v line, we plugged in a heavy 12v load and watched the power draw climb. It pushes out a lot of watts and has proven to be solid, stable and run quite cool. . ."
