G.Skill RipjawsX 1600MHz CL7 4GB DDR3 Kit Review
VR-Zone posted a review on the G.Skill RipjawsX 1600MHz CL7 4GB DDR3 Kit

Having just a fast processor isn't really enough these days; a high-speed memory kit can provide quite a bit of performance boost to your bandwidth-hungry Intel 'Sandy Bridge' platform gaming rig. VR-Zone.com finds out how much an improvement there can be with the F3-12800CL7D-4GBXM kit from G.Skill. Overclocking included.

Arctic Freezer 13 Pro Cpu Cooler Review
Rbmods posted a review on the Arctic Freezer 13 Pro Cpu Cooler

Today we will test a CPU cooler designed to bring a massive heat dissipation capacity of 300W. ARCTIC’s Freezer series is undoubtedly a reference mark in the world of CPU coolers.

Arctic’s Freezer 13 Pro is the younger brother of the original Freezer 13 and the Freezer 7 before it. As far as I can tell, the Freezer 13 Pro is bigger and utilizes a few promising technologies which should bring superior performance together with a whisper-quiet operation.

Let’s find out if these promising features would give us what is guaranteed on the paper.

Seagate Barracuda ST31000528AS 7200.12 SATA 3Gb/s 1TB Hard Drive Review
DragonSteelMods posted a review on the Seagate Barracuda ST31000528AS 7200.12 SATA 3Gb/s 1TB Hard Drive

I think most people don’t think much about hard drives really; at least theaverage person doesn’t anyway. Most average people have a pre-built boxcomputer and they just accept what’s in it and that’s that. People like methough build our own computers and we seek out the best performing harddrive we can find as we want the fastest and the best. Seagate is known fortheir Barracuda line of drives, they offer decent performance and that’swhat I’ve got for review today.

Corsair Obsidian 650D review
The Guru of 3D posted a review on the Corsair Obsidian 650D

We review the Corsair Obsidian 650D. And yeah, they stripped away the removable front drive bays, made the chassis smaller and boom, the Obsidian 650D was born. A chassis that is just as impressive as its bigger brother the 800D really.

Plenty of space, all graphics cards to date fit in there (length wise), many drive bays, fan controller, USB 3.0 frontpanel support, easy to clean dust filters and a solution that is once again pretty much tool free and comes in that scrumptious all black design.

Lian Li PC-AO4 Mini-Tower Computer Case Review
Benchmark Reviews posted a review on the Lian Li PC-AO4 Mini-Tower Computer Case

Just for a minute, we're going to stop looking for the biggest, baddest, most ferocious PC gaming case and look at something a little less hardcore. It's not even black, if you can imagine that..... Another thing that sets the Lian Li PC-A04 apart from the norm is that it's limited to micro-ATX motherboards. Two or three years ago, this would have been a showstopper, but in recent times there have been some excellent uATX boards hitting the market. There are even some offerings that forgo integrated graphics in favor of more performance-oriented chipsets. ASUS and MSI both make X58 boards for instance, and there are also several P67 choices available. So, don't feel that you have to reign in your performance expectations just because you want a smaller, more attractive box beside your desk. Benchmark Reviews took up the challenge of creating a full-aluminum mini tower build that's very different from your average "granny system".

AZZA Toledo 301 Mid-Tower Chassis Review
Techgage takes a look at AZZA's Toledo 301 mid-tower chassis.

The sub-$100 chassis market is filled to the brim with selection, with the $70 price-point in particular being a total hotspot. AZZA, a relative new-comer to the chassis game, has a wide-variety of models available, with its $70 Toledo 301 being the most recent. Let's dive right in, and see if other $70 models have a reason to be wary.

FyreTV BoXXX Media Player Review
MEGATech Reviews takes a look at the FyreTV BoXXX Media Player

For a single guy, the FyreTV box is probably something of a miracle. It’s a tiny, discrete black box that can hook up to any television in your house and wirelessly stream adult content. Gentlemen, behold, the future is now.

HD 6870 Roundup: Diamond, PowerColor, MSI, Sapphire and XFX
Hardware Canucks posted a roundup of five HD 6870 cards from Diamond, PowerColor, MSI, Sapphire and XFX.

With high end and lower tiered cards being released to complete AMD's full 6000-series lineup, many forget that the most popular market segment lies within the $175 and $225 price brackets. Here, cards like the GTX 560 Ti and HD 6950 1GB reign supreme but the HD 6870 with its long list of pre overclocked and custom cooled models still offers some great value. In this roundup we take a look at five different HD 6870 cards from some of AMD's premier board partners.

NZXT Sentry LXE Fan Controller Review
Bigbruin.com posted a review on the NZXT Sentry LXE Fan Controller

The NZXT Sentry LXE is not your standard run-of-the-mill fan controller. Combining the ease of a touchscreen and the flexibility of having an external controller add to its appeal - and not having to bend down under the desk to change a setting is nice. The built-in clock and sleek design complete the package and will complement any work space.
