     Thu, Jul 10 2014 | 5:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In this next installment of AMD?s GPU 14 R9 line-up, Benchmark Reviews will be testing the HIS Radeon R9 280 IceQ X² OC 3GB Video Card (Model# H280QMC3G2M). As the name suggests, this particular model features the high end IceQ X2 cooler from the HIS labs and faster Core and Memory speeds.

MSI Radeon R9 280 3GB Gaming Review - Tahiti Continues Its Run
     Thu, Jul 10 2014 | 2:25A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just as it happened a couple of years ago with the HD 7970 and the HD 7950, we find ourselves loving the R9 280 when compared to the R9 280X and the rest of the GPU lineup from either AMD or NVIDIA. Only this time prices are lower across the board. For gamers that are targeting a 1080p gaming experience and want to be able to max out quality settings in just about any title (with a couple of exceptions like Crysis), the Radeon R9 280 GPU is going to be a fantastic and compelling option for under $250. In particular, the MSI Radeon R9 280 Gaming edition ups the offering by included the Twin Frozr cooler and enough overclocking headroom to easily hit 1100 MHz or 1150 MHz with some luck. PC gamers with a mainstream budget would be hard pressed to do better than this card!"

ASUS Sabertooth Z97 Mark 2 Preview @ ocaholic
     Wed, Jul 09 2014 | 11:30A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With their TUF series motherboards ASUS, have rather interesting products in their portfolio. Next to their unique design, these boards feature good cooling, which in this case is all about more fan headers than you usually get at this boards price point. Other than that there is a potent power design and overall the ASUS Z97 Sabertooth appears to be a high-quality motherboard."

Almaz is the new and stylish headset from Attitude One. It features a rather unique and sophisticated design and is compatible with Windows, Android and iOS. Of course being equipped with a standard jack connector you can use it with any audio system you want. At a first glance especially the bundle appears to be really good and there is also a flexible microphone."

thinksound On1 Monitor Series HD Headphones Review
     Wed, Jul 09 2014 | 7:51A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Every once in a while i happen to be on the receiving end of a product so good that it surpasses every other similar one I?ve used till that exact moment and by every once in a while i mean every at least 2 or 3 years. Of course that is to be expected from this industry since technological advancements occur regularly but still it`s quite remarkable how a top of the line ultra-high end device can drop to mid-end in such a short period of time. For example roughly 6 years ago i got my hands on a pair of professional headphones by Ultrasone which simply put laid waste on everything else i had used previously and it wasn`t until 2 years ago that i received the TMA-1 DJ Fools Gold edition from AIAIAI which actually sounded even better and have found a permanent home on my desk drawer ever since. Well today here i have what could be its replacement (my initial opinion based solely on its specs sheet) and more specifically the brand new On1 Monitor Series Headphones by thinksound."
