Released last year by BitFenix the Shinobi becoming an instant hit in the chassis market and winning multiple awards in the process. Remakes are typically not as good as the originals hence there was a sense of foreboding when BitFenix released the larger version of its mid-tower case; the Shinobi XL. Instead of a new design the engineers at BitFenix boldly decided to expand on their most popular product yet. If the Shinobi review is anything to go by then the XL has much of its work cut out.."
Flagship gaming cards garner most of the hype but it s the mainstream cards that often more quietly bring in the profits. Not to miss out on that opportunity Sapphire now has the Sapphire Radeon 7770 Vapor-X for the masses. It certainly looks stylish and the price is competitive.

Let s take a closer look at the Sapphire Radeon 7770 Vapor-X and see how it stacks up. "

Thermaltake just last week announced they were releasing two AIO liquid cooled kits which were the Water 2.0 Performer and Pro the Pro being the higher end kit and the model we will be reviewing today. The Pro has a thicker more surface area radiator than the Performer but is that enough to choose it over some of the air-coolers we have tested just recently? We will put it on the bench and find out."

Not everyone is looking to spend $500 on their video card in some cases that is the total budget for a build. When you are up against a wall trying to pack the best performance you can get into a budget build you still want to get the most performance you can out of your video card. Thats where cards like the XFX R7750 Black Edition Double Dissipation come into play. XFX has taken the styling and cooling from their high end cards and combined it with the price of budget cards like the HD 7750. Today we are going to take a look at how those two things do combined in XFXs R7750 Black Edition Double Dissipation."
The NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference is about people. Sure NVIDIA is sponsoring it and these people are using NVIDIA Tesla GPU s but they are humans who are using scientific research to make our world a better place. Without research we would have never found a cure for many diseases that have been rendered extinct or the things we use in our daily lives that we take for granted. Our lives have been made simpler because of research. /"
I really don t know why exactly but the price drops in everything related with storage media are still going and I m really afraid that if this goes on for much longer it could actually hurt the entire industry (although price drops are always good for the end user). Still my job is not to be an industry analyst but to test the latest hardware and since it so happens that most people are focused on these price drops i thought it would be nice if we placed yet another one of the latest USB 3.0 flash drives to hit the market under our scope. Well we did exactly that and as pointed out by the title of this review today with us we have the latest DataTraveler Elite 3.0 USB 3.0 64GB Flash Drive by Kingston."
