OCZ ARC 100 SSD Review at HardwareHeaven
     Sat, Aug 16 2014 | 10:32A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Being part of Toshiba gives OCZ an extra level of flexibility when it comes to creating new products and today they launch a new SSD which takes some of their own tech and mixes it with Toshiba. Priced at an aggressive level, this is the ARC 100 series SSD."

Corsair Flash Voyager GTX Review at HardwareHeaven
     Sat, Aug 16 2014 | 8:59A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A couple of weeks ago we reviewed the Corsair Voyager Air 2, a USB 3.0 capable drive which provided 1TB of storage in a 2.5? form factor with the added bonus of wireless functionality. Another recent addition to Corsairs product range is the Voyager GTX, a more traditional approach to USB 3.0 storage? and one which Corsair claim is the fastest around. That is the focus of our review today."

ASRock Z97 OC Formula Review @ ocaholic
     Sat, Aug 16 2014 | 2:51A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Z97 OC Formula is ASRocks new high-end motherboard when it comes to overclocking. There is also a beefed up audio solution with a very decent headphone amp, which makes this board even more interesting for gamers too. What you also get with this board is ASRocks Conformal Coating, which basically makes this board waterproof. It`s especially extreme overclockers who will love this feature. Overall we`re really curious about this motherboard. ASRock has been investing quite some extra time in crafting this board and now we really want to know what it can do."

Striker Capsule Task Light Review
     Sat, Aug 16 2014 | 1:12A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Striker Capsule Task Light is a simple yet useful multipurpose device that offers four versatile methods of placement to cover all your personal lighting needs for any particular job. Comprised of four bright LumenTech LEDs that collectively produce 60 lumens of illumination, the Capsule Task Light has a dial adjustment bezel that outputs low to high depending on the situation. In this article, Benchmark Reviews shines the product spotlight (horrible pun) on the Striker Capsule Task Light."

MSI A88X-G45 Gaming Assassins Creed Edition Review
     Fri, Aug 15 2014 | 3:53P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I have no problem recommending this board to any potential buyer. It is inexpensive, it is feature packed, and it performs well at stock and overclocked speeds. I did not have the issue with this board that I encountered with the Gigabyte G1.Sniper in that the firmware that shipped with the board did not support the latest Kaveri APUs. I have also heard anecdotal evidence that this board has no problem with 16 GB DIMMS (I do not have any here for testing) as compared to the G1.Sniper which has problems recognizing these products. A reader of ours reported that he was unable to run that configuration with the Gigabyte board, but it ran perfectly with the MSI A88X-G45 Gaming motherboard."

Crucial M550 2.5 SATA SSD Full Capacity Roundup
     Fri, Aug 15 2014 | 3:53P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Crucial M550 series demonstrates an excellent use of the Marvell 88SS9189 controller. With firmware performance tweaks and intelligent die arrangements in the smaller capacities, Crucial was able to keep the performance very high across a broad range of capacities. Typically we see the smaller capacity points of a given SSD line suffer in performance. Crucial was able to minimize this by incorporating higher counts of smaller capacity dies into the smaller models. Keeping the die count high helps maintain parallelism, which ultimately results in great write performance."

DeepCool Steam Castle mATX Chassis Review
     Fri, Aug 15 2014 | 3:12P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Steam Castle is certainly unique in terms of design, DeepCool tried to push the limits of normal chassis aesthetics by creating a SteamPunk inspired product for the mATX market and the result is something that is certainly unique, but also runs the risk of being a Marmite product, you’re either going to love it, or you’re going to hate it. It’s not the first product in this size category to try and shake things up, BitFenix played their hand with their Prodigy and subsequent models, Aerocool recently released their Dead Silence Cube, Parvum released their unique water cooling friendly chassis and many others, each trying to offer something a little bit different from the more conventional tower chassis or HTPC style units. Gamers love these small-but-capable style cube chassis, they can still pack plenty of gaming hardware, but keep a form factor that allows you to pick up the system and easily move it to another location, something that is proving incredibly popular with the LAN gaming crowd. So let’s jump right to it and look at what DeepCool have to offer with the SteamCastle.

Kingston Mobilelite Wireless G2 Review
     Fri, Aug 15 2014 | 12:03P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Almost everyone have mobile phones and tablets these days. They help to run our chaotic lives and store photos, videos, and documents now just as our PCs do. However, with more powerful devices and larger media and document files comes the need for more battery power and capacity. Typically when one buys a phone or tablet, there usually is no upgrade path for capacity or larger batteries such as laptops. Most devices do not include any ports for expansion.
