Cooler Master HAF XB Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Tue, Nov 13 2012 | 12:06A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It may be dubbed a LAN Box but Cooler Master`s new HAF XB can still be considered a fully functioning ATX sized enclosure. It uses a number of innovative design features in order to cram an impressive amount of hardware into a constrained space while still having room for water cooling options.* *"

Cooler Master HAF-XB Computer Case Enclosure @ Benchmark Reviews
     Mon, Nov 12 2012 | 11:27P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I`ve reviewed a number of computer cases in the past few years, but I`ve never had the opportunity to work with anything like the new Cooler Master HAF XB. Rather than offer yet another take on the traditional tower case, Cooler Master goes with a completely new design: a bi-level case which keeps the power supply and drives in the bottom half and the motherboard in the upper half. It`ll occupy a lot more desk space than a tower, but what advantages does it offer? Benchmark Reviews will thoroughly dissect this intriguing case and build a high-end AMD gaming system into it to see how it works."

Thermaltake Armor Revo Snow Ed. Chassis - BCCHardware
     Mon, Nov 12 2012 | 8:23P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Putting a system into the Armor Revo was pretty easy to do. Actually it was one of the easiest cases I`ve put a system into, thanks to the massive amount of room inside the case and the amount of cable management features that are included. Installation probably took me about 15 minutes and it looks super clean and tidy without a bunch of cables sticking out. . ."

Asus Zenbook Prime UX31A Ultrabook Windows 7 and 8 Testing Review @ TechwareLabs
     Mon, Nov 12 2012 | 12:09P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ultrabook is a label that can mean just about anything. Asus, however, seems to be cleaving close to Intel`s original intent; the Zenbook Prime UX31A looks at first glance to be a slick competitor to Apple`s featherweight offering. First impressions can be deceiving, though, so we`re taking a closer look to see if this little slice of Zen lives up to its promise."

Asus S56CA-DH51 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Mon, Nov 12 2012 | 11:50A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Asus S56CA-DH51 is another new 15-inch Windows 8 Ultrabook that has an attractive aluminum design and a speedy Intel Core i5 CPU to back up its looks. Thanks to a 24GB SSD HD, it boots up quickly but the keyboard and battery life need some work."

PC Power & Cooling Silencer Mk III 500W Power Supply Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Mon, Nov 12 2012 | 11:46A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Silencer name has been a part of PC Power & Cooling for almost four years now. The third generation Silencer Mk III 500W offers all the current advancements that that the previous two models do not. Obviously, as times come and go products must be updated to allow the consumer to take advantage of the current technology.

     Mon, Nov 12 2012 | 11:23A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink

It also comes loaded with a AAA Tour Book Guide which is great for traveling in unfamiliar places."

Amped Wireless R20000G Router and UA2000 Adapter Review
     Mon, Nov 12 2012 | 11:14A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Im happy I was able to get my hands on the Amped Wireless gear and tinker with it for a while. It`s nice to see someone other than the normal players producing hardware. Neither the R20000G router or the US2000 adapter are bad pieces of hardware, theyre just overpriced. While I love rooting for the underdog, Amped Wireless has to meet or beat the other vendors on price, performance and functionality."

Corsair Carbide 200R Mid-Tower Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Mon, Nov 12 2012 | 10:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
But if you are not likely to even pass out your hard earned loot for the 300R, 400R or 500R, then what about $60 for a 200R. Yup, just last Wednesday (24th of October) Corsair introduced its lowest price case to date. The 200R offers simple but classy styling and plenty of functionality that is sure to woo those wanting to build on a budget, but want to do it with quality."

Kingston DataTraveler Vault Privacy 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Review
     Mon, Nov 12 2012 | 9:35A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Pretty much the top three things most of us (casual users, enthusiasts and gamers) take into account when out to get a brand new USB flash drive are capacity, price and speed (not necessarily in that order). However there are many people out there such as professionals and enterprise/industrial users who also require the best possible protection for their sensitive data something which normal flash drives can`t offer. Because of that there are several manufacturers out there who produce some of the most innovative USB flash drives money can buy featuring not only top secret grade AES-256 data encryption algorithms but even secure data destruction if someone tries to hack them (unauthorized access). Kingston has been manufacturing such flash drives for a long time and right now they have a pretty long line for someone to choose from, however today we will be starting off with their entry level model, the DataTraveler Vault Privacy Edition 8GB."
