GIGABYTE Z97X-SOC Force Motherboard Review
     Sat, Jun 21 2014 | 4:40P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Z97X-SOC Force is a well designed board, featuring almost anything an enthusiast or professional overclocker would desire in an overclocking motherboard. GIGABYTE improved upon their previous generation design, including additional DIMM slot and overclocking-related controls. One of the more innovative features is the CMOS battery reset button, giving the user the ability to reset the CMOS board memory without removing the physical CMOS battery. The board is lean on extra SATA and USB ports, but has plenty to appeal to the overclocking crowd it is targeted at, as well as gamers and enthusiasts alike."

MSI Z97 Gaming 7 Review
     Sat, Jun 21 2014 | 10:06A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI`s Z97 Gaming 7 is a full-featured motherboard targeted at the computer gamer, as the name suggests, and is built with the features that matter most to the target market. As a high performance motherboard, it is fully capable of maxing out your installed hardware, especially when you take the time to tune it specifically for your combination of parts. As far as overclocking was concerned, my best performing Core i7 4770K is a Prime-stable 4.66GHz chip no mater what. Every once in a blue moon, it chooses to run at 4.7GHz, but for the most part 4.6GHz is where it`s at. The Gaming 7 was easily able to get my chip to that level without much in the way of trouble. Setting up my memory was as simple as applying the XMP profile. Sure the sub timings can be tweaked and tuned to get a bit better performance from the memory, but for the most part you will not see it in benchmarks."

Genius GX Gaming SW-G2.1 2000 Speaker System Review
     Fri, Jun 20 2014 | 4:40P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
GX Gaming, which is the gaming peripheral division of Genius, continues to make a serious push to be more than merely relevant in the industry. They have developed some great gaming mice, keyboards, headsets and speaker systems and they clearly have no plans of slowing down. Benchmark Reviews recently had a chance to take a closer look at one of the latest products to come from Genius, the GX Gaming SW-G2.1 2000 Gaming Speaker System. Considering the long-term success of the Genius brand and from what we?ve seen from GX Gaming so far, it is a safe bet to say that this system, at the very least, will not be a disappointment."

Crucial MX100 SSD Review (256/512 GB) Crucial Strikes a Victory For Value
     Fri, Jun 20 2014 | 10:04A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Crucial has been making reliable cost effective mainstream SSDs for years now. Each new product release striving for better performance, reliability, and value. The recent release of the M550 built upon their M500, offering even better performance, but at a higher price point per GB. Because of this, Crucial needed to release a more modern lower budget drive. They had already separated their product line of SSDs in the 2012 with their V4, offering a more budget friendly SSD. However, it turned out to be a bad move. To make the V4 cheaper they skimped out on the controller and used an unstable and slow Phison controller and firmware. This lead to users having windows freezing issues and real world performance was almost similar to HDDs besides boot times."

Mionix NAOS 7000 and NAOS 8200 Review @HiTech Legion

Kingston HyperX Cloud Review @ Vortez
     Thu, Jun 19 2014 | 10:06A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Previously, Kingston HyperX have placed their mark on the iconic Siberia V2 to aid their brand awareness in the world of eSports. Now having deeper roots in eSports, sponsoring many teams between LoL (Cloud9 HyperX) and DotA2 (Alliance, TeamLiquid), it would appear that they are at it again. This time they team up with QPad to mix a little HyperX branding magic with the QH-90 to create the HyperX Cloud. Though it would appear that the QH-90 itself is a modified Takstar PRO 80, the formula itself is a logical one, excellent audiophile level audio with desirable features that distinguish contemporary gaming headsets from older generation ones."
