Phanteks Enthoo Primo review: excellent first effort
     Thu, Dec 19 2013 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While it's not perfect, Phanteks' first attempt at a desktop enclosure is an exceptional one. The design is unique and modern, the internal lay-out is both clever and flexible and Phanteks implemented a few interesting innovations. It basically contains about every single improvement we've seen in desktop chassis of the last few years. It's great that you get no less than five 14 cm case fans, as this is an area where many manufacturers like to cut corners. That means the Enthoo Primo is ready to use straight out of the box.

: Biostar Hi-Fi B85N 3D Motherboard Review
     Thu, Dec 19 2013 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Biostar Hi-Fi B85N 3D motherboard comes in the mini-ITX form factor at only 17 x 17 cm, targeting the budget audience. The small form factor of the Biostar Hi-Fi B85N 3D is ideally suited for low power solutions, such as an HTPC or kiosk system. The Hi-Fi board contains the Intel B85 Chipset, which supports Socket LGA1150 i3, i5, and i7 processors, Intel Rapid Start, Intel Smart Connect, and Intel SBA 2.0. There is support for two DDR3 DIMM modules at 1333 or 1600 MHz, with a maximum memory capacity of 16GB. A combination mSATA/Mini PCI-E slot is on the board for the addition of a SSD or Mini PCI-E card."

Posted by: STAFF
The BitFenix Shadow looks pretty sweet with its dual LED lighting element in the front, which can be toggled off, red, or blue. Is the chassis able to shine or will it have to stay in the shadows due to shortcomings?"

MSI Z87M Gaming review: Micro ATX gaming motherboard
     Wed, Dec 18 2013 | 4:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gamers are increasingly realising that you don't need a Full ATX motherboard to build a powerful gaming PC. The Z87M Gaming has all the features a gamer could want and you can even use two graphics cards in SLI or Crossfire. The MSI Z87M Gaming costs around £120 / €161 and competes against boards such as the Gigabyte G1.Sniper M5 and ASUS Maximus VI Gene.

Cooler Master Storm Ceres 300
     Wed, Dec 18 2013 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Cooler Master has released the Ceres 300 headset, an upgraded edition of the previously released Ceres 400. The 300 model features 40mm drivers, thick padded ear cushions and an adjustable headband. The 40mm drivers are complimented by a detachable flexible microphone and the headset is compatible with PC’s, mobile devices and gaming consoles. It’s very much a budget-oriented headset, priced at only $30, so let’s see if it’s a good value product or not for gamers who need audio that’s affordable.”

MSI Z87 Motherboard Roundup: Rockin Haswell
     Wed, Dec 18 2013 | 4:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We've already had a taste of what ASUS and Gigabyte have to offer in the way of Z87 motherboards, and now it's time to give MSI's lineup a spin. MSI's offering of Z87 motherboards has essentially three tiers: the "POWER" series (which includes four XPOWER and MPOWER boards), a trio of gaming boards, and five mainstream boards. The company sent us a motherboard from each area to put through their paces. The Z87 chipset goes hand-in-hand with Intel's 4th-generation Haswell processors, and we outfitted the three MSI boards--the tiny Z87I, the Z87-G45 Gamer, and the Z87 MPOWER Max overclocker--with an Intel Core i7-4770K (3.5 GHz) CPU to see how the trio performs.

Power Practical USB Practical Meter with Fast Charge Cable
     Wed, Dec 18 2013 | 9:03A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Until recently I never really thought about USB ports. I mean I use them all of the time, mostly for charging my phone and other devices and USB flash drives, so they're just there ready for me to use them as I need to. I’ve never wondered or I guess really cared as to how well they actually perform their duty like charging my phone. Recently a company called Power Practical has a Kickstarter campaign for a little gadget called the Practical Meter which was fully funded and more and now it’s available for purchase. The Practical Meter is a small flash drive like device that allows you to test any USB port and it tells you how much power that port will provide for charging. You might think that most all USB ports are the same but you’d be wrong as I found out through my testing with the Meter. So today for review I have the Power Practical Meter and a three in one USB fast charging cable that comes with it. So read on…"
