ASUS Gryphon Z87 Review
     Mon, Oct 28 2013 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Gryphon Z87, ASUS has expanded their TUF Series line-up by an mATX motherboard. This board features an attractive price point and separately available there is the so called Armor Kit, which improves the looks and adds some other additional features. Overall this sounds like a flexible concept and definitely have to take a close look at what ASUS is offering here.

AMD Radeon R9 270X On Linux
     Mon, Oct 28 2013 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Earlier this month AMD announced the R9 series graphics cards that included the $200 Radeon R9 270X offering based upon the "Curacao XT" graphics core. This Volcanic Islands graphics card in Microsoft Windows benchmarks has been faster than a Radeon HD 7870, but today we have the first Linux test results and compatibility information available. This article serves as our first Linux review of the AMD R9 270X -- or any Rx 200 series graphics card for that matter -- in the form of the Gigabyte Radeon R9 270X 2GB."

Corsair Carbide Air 540 Case
     Mon, Oct 28 2013 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Corsair Carbide Air 540 sets your idea of what a computer case should look like on edge. This is a bold step for Corsair, and they have done it with near perfect execution. The quality is top notch, which is certainly no surprise from Corsair. The fit and finish, particularly the way the top and front vent covers fit together impressed me. The compact case size is deceiving - there is plenty of space for an attractive build. The included AF140L fans are quiet and move plenty of air. The two-chamber design indeed improves air flow and helps to keep temps down. It took me a little while to get used to the sideways optical drive, but that was no big deal. Don't let the compact size fool you, as the Air 540 can handle an E-ATX (Extended ATX) motherboard with ease.”

Bitmore e-Storm LabyrinthX Bluetooth Wireless Speaker Review
     Mon, Oct 28 2013 | 8:56A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are many things to consider when buying a portable bluetooth speaker. The Bitmore e-Storm LabyrinthX Super Bass Speaker (model# PAC 555SL) being tested by Benchmark Reviews today may not tick all of the boxes but it comes kind of close. The price is a little high for my liking but there are many more expensive bluetooth speakers on the market still. Maybe when the novelty wears off the prices might come down across the board and we will see better a better price to performance ratio."

KINGSTON 16GB HyperX NaVi Edition DDR3 Review @ Vortez
     Mon, Oct 28 2013 | 8:04A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The kit we have for review today is based upon two 16GB kits (4x8GB) and will be tested in Quad channel on the X79 platform. The kits are however available to buy separately in either 16GB (2x8) or 8GB (2x4) in dual channel configuration which is ideally suited to wider range of platforms from both AMD and Intel."

Be Quiet! Pure Power L8 700W Power Supply Review @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Oct 28 2013 | 7:25A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Be Quiet! is an European company which, despite the strange name, is a very well-known manufacturer  amongst enthusiasts, mostly for their high quality (and notoriously expensive) power supply units. We had an encounter with their very impressive Dark Power Pro 10 series a few months ago; however, impressive as it was, the price tag of such a power supply would certainly drive the vast majority of users away. Today we will be having a look at the least expensive PSU series currently offers, the Pure Power L8."

Sapphire R9 280X Toxic Review
     Mon, Oct 28 2013 | 1:07A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So there you have it, another custom built card from Sapphire that takes what AMD has to offer and bring it kicking and screaming to reach another performance plateau. Considering that the R9 280X Toxic is built upon the aging Tahiti XT core, the performance squeezed from this card allows it to play well above its price point of $349. Not to draw the wrong conclusion, but this card does what last year`s HD 7970 6GB Toxic Edition card did and does just about everything better when you look at gaming performance and to some degree power consumption. Let`s start with the gaming performance of the Sapphire R9 280X Toxic. Throughout the resolutions tested, the card was markedly better than the HD 7970 in every single test while delivering performance on par with or better than the GTX 770, again through each test. Depending on the test the R9 280X Toxic could deliver FPS results within a couple FPS of the GTX 780, which costs better than $300 more in most cases"

As with many other yearly refreshes (such as FIFA, F1, etc.) those who have the last version might not necessarily get the maximum value from this edition but anyone on 2012 or earlier will see significant advances."
