Posted by: STAFF
"In this review Frostytech will be testing Coolermaster's Hyper 212 Evo heatsink, an exposed heatpipe base tower cooler. Heatpipe direct touch, or exposed heatpipe base heatsinks are dead common these days because the technique has proven so effective. Particularly among the current crop of processors which feature integrated heat spreaders."

XJacKer PS3 Kit Review @ TestFreaks
     Fri, May 04 2012 | 10:23A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I haven?t seen many console accessories in a while but I?ve got a few of them coming for you, starting today with the XJacker PS3 Kit. I?m sure right now you?re wondering what the heck an XJacker is, well it?s an adapter that let?s you use most any headset or headphones with your PS3. They can be the same ones you use with your PC, phone or MP3 player. They can have have a microphone or not, but I think you?ll want a microphone to have the ability to chat of course. The XJacker PS3 Kit is inexpensive product that comes in just under $20 and I think it?s worth as I looked around and really couldn?t find a decent wired headset for the PS3 for under $50. The Xjacker PS3 Kit lets you use your current headset with your PS3 and you don?t any functionality, this way you don?t have to buy separate headsets which is you spending more money."

Cooler Master Storm Trigger @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, May 04 2012 | 8:11A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just two years ago the only mechanical keyboards you would find were from companies like DAS keyboard trying to create a nitch market. Over the past two years things have really exploded with every manufacture you can think of introducing their own mechanical keyboards. Cooler Master has been especially aggressive with multiple unique designs like their Quickfire series. What they did lack was a full featured mechanical keyboard with full backlighting, until now. Today they officially introduce their Storm Trigger, although it you look around the board was available Globally before now. With full backlighting it falls into a small category of Mechanical Keyboards with very little competition. I am excited to see how it performs."
