Feenix Nascita Gaming Mouse 2014 Model Review @ TestFreaks
     Thu, May 01 2014 | 2:08P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I have myself a new favorite mouse. Over my numerous years of reviewing products Ive of course had the chance to review many mice of all shapes and sizes but the one I have today is the best so far I think. The mouse is the Nascita from Feenix and its what I would call a no frills gaming mouse. What I mean by that is you wont find any special software, or weight kit or interchangeable sides or really anything but the mouse itself and thats not a bad thing at all. The Nascita is designed for gaming with the focus being on gaming plain and simple, it just works and looks great. Like all gaming mice these days the Nascita does allow you to change DPI from 800 all the way up to 8200 and theres even an LCD display to let you know what youre set on at a glance. Inside of the mouse youll find an Avago 9800 laser chipset and Omron switches that are rated for ten million clicks. The mouse is weighted and balanced and features an anti-sweat and anti-slip surface to make sure you have a good grip all the time. Read on to learn more"

AMD Unveils Beema and Mullins: A Greater than Expected Refresh of Kabini
     Thu, May 01 2014 | 9:05A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
These Beema and Mullins parts are not yet available, but if they deliver on their promises, they will be a significant improvement for AMD over their previous generation parts. Dropping the TDP, while raising the clocks as significantly as they have will allow AMD to more adequately compete against Intels Bay Trail parts as well as the low power Haswell units. AMD continues to outperform Intel on the graphics front with these APUs, and that does not look to change until Intel releases their next generation Broadwell processors. "

Thermaltake Core V71 Review
     Wed, Apr 30 2014 | 4:50P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Thermaltake has put a great amount of effort into making something that can stand out from the average chassis. The Core V71 is a prime example that you never know what`s around the corner when you thought there was nothing new to bring to the market. Now i`m getting ahead of myself of the praises and if you looked down the page already you`ll see I didn`t list anything negative about the chassis. This is because I honestly couldn`t find anything. It`s like Thermaltake looked at everything on the market last year and decided to combine everything good and make sure no rock was left unturned. I often feel companies do not make a prototype before mass production or they would see the flaws that can be resolved before production. Instead the companies rely on sales and wait for the year to make revisions. Even the price is reasonable for what is included for the V71. I mean, yes it`s expensive, but Thermaltake didn`t skimp and made it worth its value, even if you are only going to air cool it."
