Posted by: STAFF
The power requirements of enthusiast and gaming PCs have increased dramatically over the last few years, due to the development of ever more powerful and sophisticated CPUs and graphics processors. The need to power these systems in a stable environment is greater than ever, and the power supplies required to feed these setups are a select group of products. We`re looking at the In Win Commander II 1200W power supply, a unit that comes with a military themed aesthetic, modular design, and 80PLUS Bronze certified at a current price of $220 that won`t break the bank."

     Sun, Nov 27 2011 | 7:18P | Video Cards | PermaLink

Silverstone SATA Cable Accessories
     Sun, Nov 27 2011 | 5:57P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We all love accessories - they`re those nifty little things you can buy at the computer store with prices that are low enough that you don`t feel guilty when you buy something every time you`re there. Silverstone has always had a great accessory line, and despite the high quality we`re used to from Silverstone products, their high quality accessories usually don`t have high end price tags. I have a few new SATA cable accessories here today from Silverstone, most of which only cost marginally more than store brand products despite being of much higher quality."

News: Asus Zenbook UX31 ultrabook
     Sun, Nov 27 2011 | 1:05P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The first 13 ultrabook from Asus looks extremely tantalizing on paper?not to mention visually. Is it as good as it seems and is it worth the $1 099 asking price?"

Lower East Side Media Speakers @ TestFreaks
     Sun, Nov 27 2011 | 12:28P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Designed with a retro appearance that provides a modern sound the Lower East Side Media Speakers are being marketed with a hipster ethos. This is immediately noticed with their use of Instagram style photos on their packaging and website for this product."

Apacer ARES PC3-17066 8GB Kit Review
     Sun, Nov 27 2011 | 11:19A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In what feels like ages ago now, during Computex we saw Apacer show off the new ARES PC3-17066 kit. I`ve used Apacer RAM in the past, but I couldn`t even tell you how long ago it was and while we`ve seen the company offer quality module after quality module over the years, it`s really been in that main stream segment with high end performance not being something they`ve focused a lot on. The ARES looks to change that, though. With its mean looking heatsink and strong specifications it looks like Apacer is ready to rock and roll in the high performance memory segment with this new offering. Before we take a closer look at the exact specifications of the new kit, let`s take a look at the kit itself."

Sentey Golden Steel Power 1000W Power Supply Review at Overclockers Online
     Sun, Nov 27 2011 | 10:18A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sentey may be a new name, but they?re one I?m definitely hoping will stick around. We?re getting a bit too comfortable here in the world of power supplies. We see many of the same names over and over again and were Sentey to keep pushing out units like the Golden Steel Power, I feel they?d help make things interesting, at least for a while. I for one am convinced and sold on the Golden Steel Power 1000W."

MSI P67A-GD80 @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Nov 27 2011 | 9:44A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At the start of this year we helped introduce Sandy Bridge along with coverage on 5 different LGA1155 motherboards. One of those boards was MSI?s P67A-GD65, one of their 16 different P67 motherboards that are currently available. We found the UEFI BIOS, easy overclocking support, and low price point to be great and gave it both our Top Honors and Editors Choice awards. Today we are going to take a look at their P67A-GD80, the GD65?s bigger brother. With a similar feature set I have high hopes."

Synology has also just finished up beta testing of a new DiskStation firmware (DS 3.2), and there are some solid new features and tons of updates worth checking out while we cover their new DiskStation DS411 4-bay NAS server."
