Cougar RX Series 500W 80 PLUS PSU Review
     Sat, Aug 03 2013 | 9:00A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Cougar brand has been around for just over five years and has already made a significant impact in the gaming community, not only because of the quality products that are created for a very competitive price, but for their elaborate designs and color palette on nearly all cougar products. One can spot a Cougar product from its competitors simply by the orange and black colour design, whether it be a computer case, fan, or power supply unit. Cougar’s mandate has always been to provide innovative and cutting edge products while deviating from the traditional black box-like computer hardware that has been around for decades, while still maintaining competitive price-points. To further this point, we present the 500W Cougar RX Series 80+ PSU, which targets the needs and functionality of first-time builders and gamers alike.

RockDoc Memory 4GB Portable Speakers
     Sat, Aug 03 2013 | 8:30A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After having used and tested a whole bunch of portable speakers over the past few years last month we received the NuForce Cube High Performance Portable Speaker which ended up blowing our minds since thanks to its size/volume/clarity combo it`s probably (we can never be 100% certain with the amount of portable speakers in the market) the best such gadget one can get in the market currently. However the electronics industry is a place filled with surprises (mostly pleasant ones) so just a week ago we started using/testing another pair of portable speakers sized almost the same as the NuForce Cube and also without featuring Bluetooth connectivity. Instead they pack 4GB of internal memory allowing the end user to store and playback a large number of his/hers music collection without having to connect them to a source. We are of course talking about the POWER and BOOM memory 4GB portable speakers by RockDoc."

Samsung 840 EVO Solid State Drive Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Sat, Aug 03 2013 | 8:27A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung 840 EVO Solid State Drive Review @ HardwareHeaven.com Replacing the non-Pro 840 models in their product stack and sitting just below the 840 Pro the Evo SSDs arrive in capacities of 120GB-1TB and include some rather interesting software developments. These aim to give us a boost in performance past the level we would normally expect from a SATA3 so today we take the 1TB model for a spin, comparing it in real world and synthetic tests to the direct competitor Crucials 960GB M500 as well as a selection of other current generation models."

Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 Mid Tower Case Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sat, Aug 03 2013 | 6:19A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 has many features to make it worth taking a look at. The cable routing and cooling options alone are hard to beat in a case this size. The Arc Midi R2 can be found at Amazon for $99.99 shipped which places it in the higher tier of cases for the mid sized case category. There are many cheaper alternatives, but not many will offer..."

Diamond Multimedia UE3000 USB 3.0 to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter Review @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Aug 02 2013 | 4:07P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our performance testing showed that we were able to average 642Mbps read and 757Mbps write with the Diamond UE3000 on our particular test setup. The USB 2.0 10/100M network adapter that we`ve been using for the past year could only averaged 77Mbps read and 93Mbps write, so this is a major performance improvement. We can only hope that if a mobile device doesn`t come with an integrated Ethernet port (RJ-45 connector) that a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter will be included in the near future. If not, have no fear as the Diamond UE3000 is now available for purchase..."

Posted by: STAFF
“Haswell has been on store shelves for a little over two weeks now, and we have seen an abundance of motherboard releases. Choosing the right one for your needs is the challenge. Some are looking for pure aesthetics, some are looking for pure performance, and some look for both. We have in for review today the MSI Z87A-GD65 Gaming Edition motherboard in the hopes of finding out if MSI was able to maintain high performance and aesthetic appeal to capture a wide audience.”

Fractal Design Tesla R2 800W Power Supply
     Fri, Aug 02 2013 | 4:01P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Fractal Design Tesla R2 is a non-modular power supply that comes in 500W, 650W, 800W and 1000W varieties. Each Fractal Design Tesla R2 PSU carries an 80 Plus Gold rating and has a single +12V rail. To ensure convenient installation and cable routing inside any chassis, Fractal Design has equipped the Tesla R2 with a 700mm long EPS12V connector. A temperature-controlled 135mm ball-bearing fan actively cools the Taiwanese capacitors and the rest of the internal components, operating silently at a lower speed to minimize noise levels. The Tesla R2 is also fully compatible with Intel’s latest Haswell processors, reducing the power consumption of the CPU to only 0.05A during the new C7 deep sleep state. Each Fractal Design Tesla R2 power supply has a MTBF of 100,000 hours at full load and comes with a 3-year warranty."

In Win Rocker Mat Aluminum Gaming Surface
     Fri, Aug 02 2013 | 4:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we think of In Win, PC cases are typically the first things we relate the name to. The company recently showcased the unique glass Tou chassis at Computex 2013, as well as the D-Frame at CES 2013. Many other items produced by In Win took a backseat to the eye-catching D-Frame, one of them being the Rocker Mat.

     Fri, Aug 02 2013 | 1:19P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Cooler Master introduced its QuickFire Rapid last year, it seemed like it was a near-perfect mech.

Join us as we put it through its paces."

GA GeForce GTX 770 SC with ACX Cooling Review
     Fri, Aug 02 2013 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Coincident with the launch of NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 700 series of products, EVGA unveiled a new invention of its own: the ACX cooler. ACX is an acronym for "Active Cooling Extreme" and as the name suggests, it's a cooling solution for high-end graphics cards. To date, we have looked at two ACX-equipped graphics cards, the EVGA GeForce GTX 780 SC ACX and GeForce GTX 760 SC ACX. We found both cards to be class-leading products and liked them both very much. And so far, the EVGA GeForce GTX 780 SC ACX remains the fastest, single-GPU powered graphics card we have tested. In fact, it's factory overclock allowed it to overtake a standard GeForce GTX Titan. Today we're going to take a look at yet another ACX-equipped graphics card, the EVGA GeForce GTX 770 SC ACX. This card takes NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 770 up a couple of notches thanks to its more powerful cooler and factory overclock...
