When it comes to power supplies we know that the 80 PLUS certifications are very important. The certification lets consumers know how efficient the power supply they are purchasing is.

Cooler Master CM 690 III review
     Mon, Oct 21 2013 | 9:42A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,We review the Cooler Master CM 690 III chassis, a new upgrade over the popular CM 690 II mid-towers. The looks might be the same, but every little mishap of the previous series has been upgraded and fixed including the interior as the HDD/SSD combo cage can be switched between 3.5-inch or 2.5-inch drives by adjustable trays without any screw. There`s enough room for a 240mm liquid cooling radiator at the top or front, 120mm in the rear and supports up to 9 fans, including 3 large 200mm fans for extreme airflow. And cleaning is hassle free thanks to the multiple dust filters at the bottom, top, and front."

Alienware X51 R2 Desktop Gaming System Review @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Oct 21 2013 | 8:56A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Some say desktop computers are fading into a thing of the past, personally I prefer them over a laptop or tablet any day of the week. Laptops and tablets certainly have their place in today?s on-the-go lifestyle we lead. In fact I?m typing this while sitting in a hotel room on a business trip on my laptop. Obviously there are some advantages to them, but desktop systems are my preferred system any day of the week. Dollar for dollar desktop systems offer more bang for the buck than a laptop, but laptops offer portability though you sacrifice performance. If you haven?t guessed already, today we are looking at a full blown desktop system from Alienware, the X51 R2. The Alienware X51 desktop starts at only $699 but the sky is the limit as the X51 is fully customizable. Read on to see how it performs."

Crucial M500 960GB
     Sun, Oct 20 2013 | 12:02P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We’ve said for quite some time that the biggest performance increase you’ll see in a system upgrade these days it moving to a Solid State Drive. The improvements of an SSD, in our opinion, are nothing short of astounding. Controller tech, speeds, and storage sizes are the golden trifecta of SSD success. And today we’re looking at the Crucial M500 960GB drive that is poised to address all three. With a massive storage capacity to suit those who don’t want to compromise, the customized Marvell controller inside promises speeds up to 500MB/s Read and 400MB/s Write, and comes with an attractive price tag of $550. That appears to be a solid combination of speed, capacity, and price, so let’s take a closer look at, the Crucial M500 960GB and see how things measure up.”
