Gigabyte GA-Z97-D3H Motherboard User Review
     Wed, Dec 24 2014 | 3:38A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I’m sure all of you have heard the ‘ole saying “you get what you pay for”, and today I think we may just change your mind on that saying. It’s not very often that you see budget motherboards sporting the latest and greatest features available, yet Gigabyte has done just that and loaded it’s GA-Z97-D3H ATX motherboard with some features that aren’t available on other higher end boards. The best part about this is that you can get the Z97-D3H for just under $120 at Amazon.com and as usual, Gigabyte has put a 3 year warranty on the board.

Gigabyte GA-Z87N-WIFI Mini-ITX Motherboard Review
     Wed, Dec 24 2014 | 3:37A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The mini-ITX form factor has taken off in a big way. Packing a lot of power in a small space, these 17 x 17 centimeter squares have enabled new concentrations of computing power. Generally, you have to pay quite a bit for the privilege of shrinking everything down, but Gigabyte has a model in their Ultra Durable line of motherboards that brings a "Z" chipset to the ~$130 price point. With high-efficiency MOSFETs and on-board WIFI/Bluetooth, USB 3.0 and two gigabit LAN controllers (Intel and Atheros), the Gigabyte GA-Z87N-WIFI is a reasonably priced entry into the overclocking-capable Z87 chipset. Is it worth it? Follow along as Benchmark Reviews takes a closer look.

CM Storm Devastator Review : Gaming Keyboard and Mouse
     Wed, Dec 24 2014 | 2:35A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Getting two things to review in the same package feels a little overwhelming, yet exciting at the same time. I get to ask myself so many questions that I normally wouldn’t, such as: “How do these two devices work together?” or “Do they manage to pull off a similar style, making them feel like an item bundle” and even “What does this mean for consumers, is it more worth it than buying a keyboard and mouse separately?” All these questions I will answer, analyzing both the products included in the Cooler Master Devastator bundle separately and as a package.

Posted by: STAFF
Civilization is without a doubt one of the most successful strategy games ever released and chances are you are anticipating the release of Civilization: Beyond Earth this week.

Intel today launched three new high-end Haswell-E processors for the brand new Intel X99 chipset based platform that was also launched today along with the new LGA 2011-v3 socket.

This new platform also ushers in support for DDR4 memory! So, in addition to the new processor, chipset and socket, there is a major advancement with regards to the DRAM!
