Sport XT 2x8GB DDR3-1600 RAM
     Fri, Aug 23 2013 | 9:01A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to system performance, RAM is a component that gets far less attention than it should. While it may have less of an impact than the CPU or GPU, RAM can still be a major bottleneck on performance. Today we're going to be taking a look at the latest kit from Crucial's Ballistix Sport XT line, a 2x8GB kit rated for DDR3 1600. While not pushing the bleeding edge on performance, this kit should still post some solid performance numbers.

Diamond DS3900 Dual VIdeo USB 3.0 Docking Station Review
     Fri, Aug 23 2013 | 8:33A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I have been using a docking station at work for many years, so this was not new to me. All my previous experience was with proprietary docking stations that had cost quite a lot to procure and we tied to a single product. Until now I had not been able to find a docking station for my personal computer that has a reasonable price, simple connectivity, and the promise to increase the effectiveness of my computer. And so that is why I was so excited to receive and be able to test the Diamond DS3900 docking station for Benchmark Reviews."

CM Storm Havoc Mouse Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Fri, Aug 23 2013 | 7:41A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The long line of gaming-grade mice from CM Storm finally gets a medium-sized model, the Havoc. With a right-handed design and Omron micro switches (from Japan), the Havoc has eight programmable buttons, and it provides an exceptional sliding experience, thanks to some physical characteristics we will detail now. Afterwards, we will talk about its software and performance during gameplay and work-related tasks."

Corsair Obsidian Series 350D Micro ATX Case Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Fri, Aug 23 2013 | 7:31A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I have always been a fan of Corsair cases. Corsair just gets it, their cases are elegant and dont have any of the extras that users will simply not use. The Obsidian Series is the top of the line case series from Corsair and today we are taking a look at the Obsidian Series 350D case. The idea of this case is simple, take all of the best parts of the very popular 800D and 900D cases and put that into a micro ATX case. Micro ATX builds are great as many micro ATX motherboards offer the same features as full sized ATX motherboards, yet take up less space. This means a smaller case to lug around to LAN parties. Is the Corsair Obsidian Series 350D case perfect for your next micro ATX build? Read on as we find out!"

ASUS Maximus VI Formula Review @ Vortez
     Fri, Aug 23 2013 | 7:19A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So why is there so much hype surrounding the ASUS Maximus VI Formula? Well, this is the first time ASUS have implemented their CrossChill feature on a motherboard. With this feature water or air can be used to cool the MOSFETs - so regardless of whether you are an extreme overclocking or not the options are all there for whichever pathway you take. Furthermore, the Formula adopts a design which takes advantage of ROG Armor - a unique protective steel shield on the front and back side that helps with temperature control and longevity of components. Referencing these two particular features we are only scratching the surface, there are many more aspects of Formula to explore, so let`s begin our review!"

Linksys 1750Mbps Smart Wi-Fi Router & 802.11ac Networking - BCCHardware
     Fri, Aug 23 2013 | 7:11A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The EA6500 looks pretty typical for a newer Linksys product - but it`s super-sized. It is massive compared to the E4200 series and could in fact scare small children. This extra size is required for all the extra internal antennae to handle the dual-band operations. This should help with antennae and signal strength for starters and help the plastic housing to remain cooler as 802.11ac routers can get a little toasty. . ."

Nikon Coolpix P330 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Fri, Aug 23 2013 | 6:19A | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
On paper the Nikon Coolpix P330 is an impressive pocket camera. It`s got a 12-megapixel image sensor with a 1/1.7-inch design, larger in surface area than those in other compacts in this price range. Unfortunately, the P330 is a noticeably slow performer-it takes a full 1.9 seconds to recover after capturing a JPG photo."

MSI Z87 - G45 GAMING Motherboard Review @ Madshrimps
     Fri, Aug 23 2013 | 5:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last time we had a look at MSI`s flagship of the Z87series, the Z87 XPOWER. Targeted at the overclocking and the enthusiast audience, the XPOWER also carries a hefty price tag. Gamers however are usually more budget minded and might prefer to invest a bit more in the Graphics Card or the Processor. MSI has got two Gaming boards on offer, the G45 and GD65, both carry tailor made specifications for gamers. Multi GPU support, improved Audio and LAN function, all integrated in a professional and stunning looking Dragon-themed PCB. That high end and performance does not always have to carry a hefty price tag might become more clear during the review of this Z87-G45 Gaming motherboard."

SilverStone Raven RV04 Case Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Fri, Aug 23 2013 | 1:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For a number of years now SilverStone have been making a selection of cases which are built to a high standard but have some rather unique twists to them. Take the Fortress FT02 that we reviewed in 2010 as an example. It was a case which offered a rotated motherboard install with the add-in cards hanging vertically rather than running horizontally. Now they have returned to the market with the fourth revision of the Raven case. It completely rotates the motherboard so that our CPU is close to the base of the case and has more than a few high end features. So let`s take a look at it along with one of SilverStones new liquid coolers."

After sitting on the sidelines as the SSD revolution progressed, Seagate is finally jumping head first into the solid state Enterprise market with their new 600 Pro 400GB."
