MSI Z87 XPOWER Motherboard Review @ HiTech Legion
     Tue, Aug 20 2013 | 6:19A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Z87 XPOWER is the flagship mainboard from MSI`s Intel 8-series motherboard line. The Z87 XPOWER sports the MSI Lightning color scheme and is designed primarily for overclocking purposes although it also boasts a staggering list of non-OC related features as expected from a mainboard of its price and caliber. Sporting an XL-ATX form factor at 34.5cm x 26.4cm, the MSI Z87 XPOWER is packed with onboard OC functions and an impressive 4-way 8x/8x/8x/8x SLI/CFX support via a PLX PEX8747 chip. The Z87 XPOWER uses Military Class IV components and 32-phase IR3550 ICs on an 8-layer PCB for a highly efficient and stable overclocking performance. Just like the MSI MPOWER MAX, the Z87 XPOWER uses Qualcomm Killer E2200 for low-ping managed network traffic and a Realtek ALC1150 codec with TI OPA1652 amp for high-quality audio which is isolated for minimized interference./"

1.html,We review the 125 EUR AMD A10 6700 APU processor, the little brother of the 6800K we just reviewed a little while ago.

Corsair Vengeance K70 Gaming Keyboard Review @ HiTech Legion
     Mon, Aug 19 2013 | 11:34P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The K70 keyboard updates several features from the K60 in Corsair`s Vengeance gaming line. Unlike the Corsair K60, the Corsair K70 is fully backlit and uses 100% Cherry MX switches for the keys. The signature brushed aluminum chassis of the previous Corsair Vengeance keyboards remains but users now can choose between the classic silver with blue LED and the new anodized black color with red LED.

Lexar Jumpdrive P10, S23 and S73 USB 3.0 Drives Review @ HardwareHeaven.com USB storage drives are available in all shapes and sizes, from basic models to those shaped like a million themes such as sports cards, video game characters and food.

MSI Just Game Mousepad Review @ HiTech Legion
     Mon, Aug 19 2013 | 8:20P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Silverstone`s recent commitment to high end cooling is clearly on display in their new Tundra TD02 and TD03 AiO liquid coolers. We have appreciated (and many times marveled at) Silverstone`s engineering and build quality in the past, and they have carried this over to make the 240mm Tundra TD02 and 120mm TD03 truly unique in the world of AiO coolers. At first glance, it is very noticeable that the radiator is thicker than what has come before, measuring at 45mm, but even the Tundra`s fins have been changed to use a planar fin that offers up to 40% more heat dissipation than traditional fins. Elsewhere in the Tundra`s makeup, we find a unique lack of plastic components we are accustomed to, and find them replaced with metals. The pump housing and block of the Tundra TD02 and TD 03 uses a patented screwless design, and is comprised entirely of metal. This lessens chances of leaks, as well as improving overall strength and durability. The mounting kit for the block again replaces plastic and thin metal clips with forged aluminum, and a design that makes for incredibly easy installation on all current Intel and AMD sockets. Both the TD02 and TD03 are equipped with dual 120mm fans capable of 90.5 cfm at 2500 rpm, but produce only 18 dBA at full speed for a quiet experience. Unique radiator trim is finished in white with silver surround around the radiator, and is perfect for painting for those looking to mod. The Tundras are completed with 330mm white corrugated FEP tubing./"

     Mon, Aug 19 2013 | 7:10P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We took three competing Z87 motherboards currently available at different price levels and literally beat them silly in the lab for several weeks. We learned a great deal about each partners platform quirks, benefits, personalities, and the features each offers. The three motherboards in question are the ASUS Z87 Deluxe, GIGABYTE GA-Z87X-UD5H, and MSI Z87-GD65 Gaming. With the new Z87 chipset, each board has new learning curves, software, and some even have a completely redesigned UEFI BIOS.

ASUS ROG Maximus VI Extreme Review
     Mon, Aug 19 2013 | 5:46P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When you look at the performance delivered by the Maximus VI Extreme at stock speeds, it is going to deliver performance within a few percentage points across the entire test suite. Really there were no surprises here with the stock performance. When overclocked, the M6E delivered performance increases across the board making for a truly inspired performance. On this board I was able to eek out another 50MHz of bench stable performance out of my 4770K thanks to the flexibility and the granularity of the voltage options in the Crash Free BIOS BIOS at up to 4749MHz by manually tweaking many of the options, even though the auto rules for all three of the Level Up options are robust enough to get clock speed levels of 4.2, 4.4, and 4.6GHz stable as long as your chip can run the number. If manually tweaking is not your strong suite, you have the previously mentioned Level Up feature in the BIOS as well as the 4-Way optimization tool in AISuite III."

     Mon, Aug 19 2013 | 1:36P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today for review Ive got a backpack, the traditional back to school accessory for sure, a must have for any student no matter what grade level. The backpack is from Targus and its called the CityGear and its got a plethora of pockets big and small for everything you need for class and life.

The CityGear pack is also made for laptops and it does feature a nice large well padded section that will fit notebooks up to 15.6 in size and keep them protected while youre going to and from classes and really just going anywhere. So read on to learn more about this bag from Targus"

Gigabyte Z87X-UD3H Socket 1150 Motherboard Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Mon, Aug 19 2013 | 10:08A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, we got our first look at a motherboard strictly for the Intel Haswell processors using Intel`s newest socket 1150 platform. The motherboard would be the Gigabyte Z87X-UD3H. If you are familiar with Gigabyte, you would know that any UD3H model falls under their mid-range category with a pretty solid performance and a better-than-good overclocking capability. It is a decent motherboard for any entry to mid-level enthusiast build that will not break the bank. As stated above, this motherboard is intended for the new Haswell series of processors. On launch there was several processors released but the two most popular amongst enthusiasts and overclockers ...."
