WD My Net N900 Central Router Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, Feb 11 2013 | 9:22A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There was a time when a wireless router did little more than, well, route. It took bits from the airwaves and put them on a wire, destined for the Internet or perhaps the local network. As the technology matured, product designers started adding things. At first, it was software like firewalls, quality of service controls, and port tunneling and forwarding controls. Then came the advanced things such as VPN and jffs-based file storage sufficient for a small, static HTML site stored on a cordoned-off part of the routers unused flash ROM. Then came the hardware changes, most relevant to this review being the advent of USB ports. This opened a whole new world of possibilities, generally USB Mass Storage devices and printers. Then Western Digital joined the fray. It added a hard drive to the router. Thus, we have the My Net N900 Central, a 450Mbps x2 high-end wireless router ready act not only as a shuffler of bits, but also as a storer of bits; a router and simple NAS all in one compact device."

NZXT Kraken X40 & X60 CPU Coolers Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Sun, Feb 10 2013 | 11:23P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NZXT`s Kraken X40 and X60 all in one water coolers are meant to go head to head against some of the best offered by Corsair, Thermaltake and Cooler Master. In order to accomplish this, NZXT has avoided using typical 120mm and 240mm form factors and instead upsized their new X40 and X60 to 140mm and 280mm respectively."

NZXT Phantom 820 Tower Computer Case @ Benchmark Reviews
     Sun, Feb 10 2013 | 8:22P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A great case can last an enthusiast many builds. This means that case designers need to create cases that can handle many different configurations, with many different requirements. A multi-GPU system has different requirements than a single GPU system, which in turn has different requirements than professional workstation. While NZXT attempts to cater to all of these parties, designing a case involves making compromises between the three areas of quality, features, and cost. Therefore, the question Benchmark Reviews will attempt to answer is what compromises did NZXT make in the creation of the NZXT Phantom 820..."

Games We Want To Play 2013 @ Techreaction.net
     Sun, Feb 10 2013 | 7:55P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As we say goodbye to 2012, we welcome 2013, and the games it will bring with it. Some games we have had our eyes on more then others, and today wed like to share with you just a few of the games we are hoping to get our greedy little hands on once they are released. Now our games wish list is pretty long so we decided to do something a bit different then what other game sites are doing with their anticipated games of 2013 lists. Instead of just naming every single game we want to play scheduled for release this year, we have opted to do a quarterly report of the games of 2013 we are most looking forward to. We believe this kind of format is favorable in a couple of ways: First it makes the list brief allowing you to only take ten minutes or so to go over it, and be on your way. I mean honestly do you really want to read through what could be 20 pages plus of games we want to play in 2013? Secondly since we are opting for a quarterly listing of games, this format will allow us to adjust our overall list to be a bit more up to date during the course of the year as things like release dates, change in art direction, combat systems, addition / subtraction of multiplayer component, etc. have a tendency to change. Thirdlyah hell you pretty much get the point. We want a list that you can look real quick at, get some up to date info on, comment if you like, and go about your business. Simple right? We hope so : ) * * * *"

Kingston HyperX Beast DDR3-2133 64GB Memory Kit Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Sun, Feb 10 2013 | 1:43P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Not that long ago Kingston announced a new entry into their HyperX line, Beast. The Beast memory kits are designed for users who want the largest capacity memory available, but still want that performance memory speed and quality. HyperX Beast is part of the Predator line so it is made for both power users and enthusiasts. As I said these kits are for people who want large capacities so the lowest capacity kit available is 16GB. Kingston was nice enough to send us the big boy of the line which is the KHX21C11T3FK8/64X kit. This a 64GB (8x8GB) kit running at 2133MHz with timings of 11-12-11 at 1.65v. So lets get started!"
